    Making progress on my MB quilt. I started sashing at my retreat, finished today and started putting the green sashing on. I thought I would share what I have so far because the next step will be to quilt each block and I am not sure how long it will take. I am using Jan's method of quilting with just batting and then adding a whole backing. You can see in pics 2 and 3 that the afternoon sun was coming in so I couldn't get a good picture of the whole quilt. I have a batik outer border that has all the colors from the blocks.

    I am going to switch a couple blocks on the right lower corner....the green and the purple blocks.

    QNS--I am going to use your 2nd block on the bag I make to hold this quilt when it's not being used.

    good job, Dublb.

    Carrie, I like your plan! It is going to be great finish.

    Our taxes are done; company is coming on Monday and I am feeling better. Maybe my knee will ease off the hurting curve and I can clean house a bit. Like to finish Dear Jane A-9 and 10, and do the batiks, A-1 to A-10.

    Hi Everyone, I've been sitting on the back burner just trying to take it easy on myself. My dental problem was hopefully taken care of last Tuesday..sat in the chair all doped up for 3 hours...have to wait now to see if the treatment works..I have a temporary cap on it...I now have a crooked smile..the area is still swollen as of today...My knee lets me know when to sit and I've been doing a lot of it..I pay for it at night when I try to sleep if I don't...I have a new ailment..I must have caught something from the kids cause now my right eye is itchy and tearing and it looks like it's going black underneath..like a raccoon ...I had a little bit of vertigo yesterday...first time in years...so you see I really feel like I'm falling apart at the seams..I have no interest in doing anything..I just sit and worry about what's happening to me..sat at the machine putting together some old precut blocks I've had for years...that was a few days ago....I have been lurking in all the threads we go to so as not to miss anything I just don't have anything to contribute so I stay silent. H.

    I've also been lurking in the background enjoying the show of quilts in progress and blocks and table runners yinz have made. I apologize for not commenting on them individually and participating more. If you're familiar with depression, you know it's an effort just to get up and get dressed in the morning. Once I do that I don't have the energy to do much else. So sorry! But we're halfway thru March (today's the Ides of March) so I'm 1/2 way to my goal of making it thru the month.

    I have been working on Carrie's 50 Fab Stars and finishing Anne's SYE blocks and a couple of QE's DJ blocks. Hanging out in the Bat Cave with loud music helps me to keep from wallowing in my mood (depression is such a stupid, selfish thing!) Promise more involvement and a happier JanRn soon!! Can I get in on that group hug?

    Everyone, come on down to that virtual RV for a group 'hug'!!!
    and more:










    With age progressing, our body and mind start to fail us...moving so slow yet. Went town with DH driving and tried to avoid any harsh words from him, but that did not happen this morning; He found things to complain about even though I was doing my best. (No kitchen counter was free to put groceries since he does all the kitchen work now...and egg bucket is on the counter with chicken S--- under it... and suds had dried in the sink because he had not rinsed it out when he let the water go....and I know I am not in charge of things getting done right....right now....so I try to keep my mouth shut.; and by the grace of God, I did.)

    I did get in a nice shower this morning, now to get my bedding washed so it will be clean tonight. Threw all the papers I did not need for Income Tax into a basket...along with other letters...and its still sitting here in my room; needs taken care of either throw or file. But needs are not already met. My knee still needs its time up, so I can sleep tonight...you know what I mean, Anne.

    Love to get into quilting room, so much to do. Not right now, at least. I am too tired. No energy here, either.

    You young ladies can dance the night away.....

    We got back Thursday afternoon from our last RV trip with our group. It was beautiful weather, so that made it all the nicer.

    Yesterday we traveled three hours to So. CA to a Final Four Basketball game for our local Community College team. They won, so tomorrow we are going back for the Final State Championship Game. At least it should not take as long to get there, as the Friday LA traffic was horrendous. Glad we left really early for the game.

    Today, we met with our Tax lady, then drove into my home town (Ventura) to visit with my new 12 week old Great Niece. Oh My - she is just beautiful. What fun!

    I have two more borders to finish my Celtic Solstice quilt, but I need to get more material. I am working on my 50 Fab Stars blocks, but am still behind on them. Also on the back burner is the SYE blocks. I have everything printed and the information downloaded, but want to catch up on the Stars blocks before I go back to them.

    I'm sorry some of you are still under the weather. It is no fun not feeling well. I have no patience for illness of any kind! I want to be well immediately, and sometimes that is not possible!

    Big (((((((HUGS)))))))) to all!!! I haven't been feeling very chatty lately either. It has been nice to have a week where I was mostly home and even able to sew a couple days. The next two weeks will be busier, but thankfully the snow is melting and it's warmer so not as hard to get out and about.

    Wonderful to hear some of you are reaching your March goals, and have wonderful plans for this month. And can show off your beautiful work.

    Snow greeted us this morning, about four inches outside and 27 degrees this morning. Just a reminder Spring is still around the next corner and not here....yet.

    Knee and ankle was not swollen this morning, so that is a plus...however, the knee does really hurt, so will take things easy today. Friend is still coming in tomorrow afternoon, but understands how things are at the moment, so will just worry about making up the bed for her. She is bringing her corned beef cabbage dish; I have cheese cake for her in the refrigerator. Among many other things. Found a Green Velvet Cake on www.Foodnetwork.com where thy have posted 30 plus Irish recipes. Bread, biscuits, Corned Beef Cabbage, Cabbage and beef soup, and more. Green pancakes. Hope you all have fun on St Patrick Day with some 'green' showing up on your table. Enjoy.

    Hi all....Jan hang in there. One more shot of cold, maybe snow and the sun will have it's way.
    i've returned to the sewing room after a week away and have made progress in my SYE flimsy. Two rows are completely together and it's exceeding my expectations. I'm so happy Jan and GrannyQ "bumped" me into a black and white quilt which of course I'm complimenting with the red fabric leftover from another project. Thank you my friends! I think of your with every seam, Jan since they are y seams....gentle but still dot to dot. Works well until I came to a block I hadn't trimmed all six sides and it just wouldn't fit. It does now!
    Mirabelle...I look forward to seeing your SYE flimsy.
    Tomorrow is a play day at the LQS. I plan to get backing ready for at least two quilts since they have large tables to work on and it's much easier to get it done.
    QNS...corned beef and cabbage at my house tomorrow too. Have a good one everyone!

    Hey ya'll how are ya? I have been real busy. It is spring here. Spring means wind & dust. Actually there really hasn't as much dust as usual. It actually rained last night. Not a lot but it's better'n none. I don't think it rained at the airport, where the weather station is, so the "official" amount won't be near as much as we did git here in Midland.

    You go, GGal--better you than me and those bleepin' y-seams LOL. I worked on a pieced border for SYE today, not sure if I like it or if it's too busy. I love these blocks. For some reason I have 2 that are larger than all the others. I think they're the ones I printed at home; the rest I did at work and they're all the same. They will fit though, like you I'll make them fit.

    Glad everyone has checked in. Have a happy St Patrick's Day and don't drink too much Green Beer (or is that a Pittsburgh thing?)

    We went to our Women's State Community College Championship Basketball Game today. We left at 9:00 a.m. and went out to Breakfast, then down south (an hour and a half away). We won! Wow, so exciting. It is the 7th time we have won the championship. We had two rooter buses down there, plus all the people that drove their own cars. The gym was packed with Ventura people! So fun!

    Hey Ya'll I'll be gone for a bit. I'm gonna go & visit my DD in Houston. I'll take my computer but I bet I don't git on it very much. That's what happens when I go outta town. I do have a very sick cousin & might have ta come home early for a funeral so I'm gonna just drive straight through instead o' stoppin' in Brady. I need ta spend as much time w/DD as I can while I can. I can only be in Houston in the winter & am cuttin' it real close as April is the cut off point for my allergies. It's amazin' how many things have gotten in my way ta go & see her this winter. It might be workin' out for the best right now 'cause her DH is workin' on a rig in the ocean just off the coast o' Africa. He'll be there for 2 or 3 weeks.

    Jeanie, that team is a mouth full, glad they won for you. It makes a better journey with all the fans there and they win!

    Dublb, smile and wave in our DS's direction when you are in Houston visiting your DD...he's living over on NorthWest Houston side near Tomball, but works downtown.

    Everyone have a blessed St. Patrick's Day...JanRN looking forward to hearing more good stories from your Monday workday.

    My company is coming in today, and we have a lot of 'catching up' conversations to do this week. About 37 years worth. Yep, she is bringing in the Corned beef and cabbage.

    Awesome DJ blocks, QNS. You're doing a great job piecing those. Wow! The ones I've made finish at 5 1/2" and I thought that felt small; those are amazing. I'm always afraid to order kits because I'm not sure I'd like their choice of fabrics but I really like those. You have been a busy bee! Enjoy your company and take a well-earned break.

    No work this week but I'm sure there'll be lots more stories in the future LOL.

    QNS, great DJ blocks and congrats on the first finishes.

    DD, I received your beautiful surprise block today and all the lovely I Spy fabrics ! ! ! Thank you so much!
    Will take a picture of the block tomorrow, now it's starting to get dark and it has been raining all day so no good time to take pictures.

    QNS...wonderful work on your DJ!
    Honchey...so good to hear from you. Hope you have continued success and return to health.
    dubib....enjoy your DD and stay away from allergies! My niece is a nurse that arranges organ donating so I read your post with great interest. Hope it is still working out well for all concerned.
    jeanie...that basketball must be what keeps you young. Is that your alma matar? BTW...did the earthquake affect you?
    anael...don't give up on me please. I've had a "surprise" block ready to get in the mail for sometime but haven't made it happen. Maybe today. I'm finally getting my hair cut after 8 week! I'm well past the dog tag stage...
    I'm well behind on my March goals but glad to be recovering my health and not having snow to contend with. Outside work begins to beckon.

    I started taking Vitamin D and feel somewhat more awake...now hope the Vertigo will soon say bye bye...,my knee pain is here to stay for the time being unfortunately..just have to deal with it...Other that that I'm ok...Thanks all of you for your concern and hugs...they were well received!..

    The dentist tomorrow and then to the new JoAnn's Grand Opening.. on Thursday... It has a Viking Gallery also.. Have to check out the competition...was supposed to go with DH to have the taxes done but he can do that on his own...All we have to do it just turn in the paperwork....Shopping is more important... right???

    Gardnergal - Yes, both my DH and I attended Ventura College. The reason we started following the basketball teams was because my niece played there after High School. Many of you are my age, so remember that girls only played half court basketball. I guess they thought we could not run the whole court, yet we played field hockey on the football field??? Anyway, we followed my niece all through high school, then to Ventura College. After she left to go to Chico State, we decided we loved it so much we just continued to follow the men and women's teams. That was in 1993! We sit with people that have attended all that time as well. It is so much fun when basketball starts up again, as we see all the people we have not seen in eight months!

    The earthquake was about 50 miles south of us. I was asleep and did not feel it, but those who were up felt it.
