    Oh Anael, what fun you will have fashioning quilts for those SewGrands! My package is being mailed today, I'm kind of slow! I guess it will be fun to anticipate more packages!

    QNS - did the Drs. say you would be needing a knee replacement in the future? I know you said it was bone-on-bone, how painful for you, especially with all this cold weather. My arthritic fingers always feel better in the warmer weather!

    JeanieG, the Dr. say in the future, possible knee replacement, but first we jump through the loops of what the insurance company says that we need too complete...a shot into the knee, etc...., that I am not happy with right now. New procedure is to draw bone marrow from the hip, pull out the ? from it and pump it into the knee area that is bone against bone to regrow the 'cushion' there. Mine is gone from the inner portion, but not the outer portion of the knee...is more like a pulled tendon on the inner part of the right knee, therefore, the brace does help keep the pressure off the knee and supports it more. I 'cleaned' the floor with a paper towel in a circular movement with my right leg and it damaged or re-injured the right knee again. DH just told me "Don't do that again!" Cold weather does not help either. I am not ready to think about knee replacement yet. Think I am in denial of getting older, just better.... someway, I must be getting better with age and wisdom....still looking for the wisdom.

    For a laugh or two from my face book. Snowing in Southern Iowa again today....but warmer temperatures here through next Tuesday, so good-bye snow. Spring is just around the corner.

    Anael ... great pics from Mick's Birthday and of Neighbour Kitty. She looks very intent and getting ready to pounce! Nice additions in your mailbox yesterday. Look forward to seeing today's too!

    MiraB and JanieW ... great choices to go with Anael's blocks!

    DDamsel ... talk about one Energizer Bunny you have become!



    I got mail today ............ Thank You OKSGlad ... what a lovely block to end the MB surprises with!!! It goes so nicely with the other blocks. You chose some wonderful soft colours fabrics and I'm really pleased!

    This block from OKSGlad chose is Prairie Flower, symbolic of a tract of virgin prairie that is close to where she was raised. Here it is ....

    Now for a look at my whole MB Collection. Thank You Everyone for making this possible and keeping at it for the whole year. Many memories are in these blocks for me. Though for now, I do not know how I will put it together. Any suggestions??

    As we went along the MB journey, I made Little Sisters to each of the blocks I sent out. Plus a few extras. Again, I have not made any decisions on how to put them into a quilt .... ideas are welcome, too!

    You are welcome QE. SewGlad packet arrived safely. And yes was mailed the same day as Anael's.
    The Little Sisters blocks look great on point. Maybe it's what you should do with the MB's too.

    I did the same, and have several yet to make. I did them in 6" size. I'm going to somehow work them into a border, I think!

    Happy Birthday, QE! Lovely blocks; no, I have no suggestions here. It is 36 degrees here and rapidly climbing higher. Great day to work outside, pruning roses.

    Loved the photo of your cat, Anael.

    OKSGlad ... good thought about the MBs on point! I was SewGlad to get your packet too ... and the blues surprise made me anything but blue. I was jumping with delight. Bless You!

    MiraB ... What? you don't know what to do? *gasp*

    JeanieG ... I knew I had to make Little Sisters with the MB or else I would probably never get back to it! Good idea on putting the two sets together. Are you going to combine them with your BBs too? .... or now that I think of it, did you already make your BB quilt?

    JanRN ... thank you for your Public Service announcement, but NOT!!!! It really is just another day. I did go out for supper the other night with a friend. Today I'll be here. Have some WORK to do for a couple of clients and then hope to goof off early and get into the sewing room as my gift from-me-to-me! !

    JanRN and QNS ... thank you for your birthday wishes!


    Here is my birthday present to each of you ... and my first March Booster completion!

    Hey guys! I'm back. I'm not sure if I told ya'll are not that I was goin' outta town for a bit. #1DSon wanted me ta not talk about it. Well on Wed he donated his kidney ta one o' his DFIL's. (His DWife's Step Dad.) The surgery went wonderfully & they sent us home yesterday. We were in San Antonio. The trip home was so painful for DSon that it' wasn't even funny a'tall.
    I did send out my MB on Mon before I left town.
    I see that my MB recipient doesn't know that it is comin' her way. I just got caught up on all 11 pages that I was behind on. SO much happenin' here. I don't have my block made for Anael either. (I do see that she knows that they are comin' now. ) I'm so sorry that I'm so far behind! I'll git caught up I promise.

    dublb - wow - that was a wonderful thing for your #1 DS to do! Any surgery is painful, I hope that the surgery was successful for his DFIL. It is just amazing to me what they can do now a days! Who would of thought all these transplants would work so well when we first heard about them years ago.

    DublB ... how wonderful that your son was a match for his wife's step-Dad. Many want to be donors, but are not matches. One of my neighbour's gave her kidney to her husband several years ago ... again a total coincidence that they were a match. Here's to his recovery!

    QuiltE, I love all the blocks you got! I have no idea about the setting but I'm sure you'll come up with something gorgeous

    Dublb, that's a wonderful thing to do. Let's hope they both recover soon!

    Happy Belated Birthday QuiltE ! I've been busy trying to organize the "stuff" I brought back with me and Trying to figure out where to put it.. ... I definitely have too much!! I wish I could be the type of person that only buys for the current project..I envy them...

    QNS, take a few breaks during the day & elevate the leg..It does help...ask me how I know

    Dublb, How wonderful for the family your DS was able to help with the kidney...

    Anael, Blooming tree, how pretty...want some snow??? we're supposed to be getting 6" this coming Wednesday.. Tuesday is supposed to be 57* & sunny...I'll be stuck in the Dentist's Chair then to bed for me...UGHHHH!

    All the great MB's I'm seeing the last couple of days are BEEEUUUUTiful!!! Aren't you glad I suggested the trip???
    We all went the extra mile on these babies....

    I'm still in a quandary on the one DJ block I cut out and maybe I'll try to get it together again... yes, again....

    The sun IS shining and I have to get my dose of Vitamin D and go outside for awhile...Love the Billboard saying QNS!
