    So sorry you didn't get the news you were hoping for QNS, and like the others I know you'll find a positive way to deal with this. Good thoughts and vibes coming your way. It may be time for another group hug in the virtual RV.

    QNS--praying for you! You might have to put your husband in to service to help you with all the quilts you want to finish. You have always been a blessing to our group and we all appreciate your great attitude about life. Hugs!!

    Oh, QNS....I'm so sorry. Sure not what you wanted to hear.
    Jan...I won't take credit for the weather but I'm enjoying it too. Garden work yesterday.
    honchey....love your little projects. What it the little box one called? It does look nice with the white border.
    carrie...hope you're feeling better too and that there is a lasting solution for your situation.
    The next few days will be spent preparing for Passover. I belong to a Hebrew Roots of our Christian Faith fellowship and find so much truth and fulfillment in expanding my understanding and practice of my faith in God. I'm not here to preach or anything but thought it necessary to explain why I celebrated Passover.
    Have a good day everyone.

    Ggal, one of my BFF's is Jewish and her husband is Irish Catholic. They celebrate all Jewish & Christian holidays. It is so wonderful to see their 3 boys embrace both faiths. I've learned so much from them and admire them for passing on the traditions.

    We came home early from our trip. Got to see my darling little grandkids, then on Monday I awoke with the left side of my face all swollen! Trip to ER, got Amoxicillin, plus some pain med. We decided not to go to Laughlin, so got home today, as I got an appointment with my Dentist. He took an X-Ray of my tooth and sent me to an Endodontist. She got me in right away, and I'm having a Root Canal tomorrow. The swelling is way down, almost back to normal today.

    QNS - I'm just in shock that this has happened to you! OMG, I am soooooo sorry! You are in my prayers, hopefully you will have the vision you now possess for many years to come.

    I found the white fabric I need to finish my Celtic Stolstice quilt while in Phoenix. Just two borders to put on. Yeah! I cannot believe that quilt shop. All the fabric is $6.95 in the whole store. They had the real wide backing fabrics for more. They always have these two racks probably 6 tall by 12 wide with fabric all marked down to $3.95 a yard. I did not buy anything but my white on white I needed for my quilt, I have not been feeling real well because of my tooth. We are going back the end of May for a graduation of a dear little gal who is a family friend (she calls us grandma and grandpa). So I told the gal in the store, I always go to this store when we are in Phoenix. I wish we had a fabric store like this here in our area. They have three long arm machines they rent out too, plus all the newest sewing machines. Wonderful store!!!

    QNSue ... What a difficult blow you received, I am sure. With your innovative mind, I am sure you can/will find ways to work thru this. Remember, there has been no definity for the progression, so it may never happen! Plus we all know that Dr's can be wrong and that miracles DO happen!!! So ENJOY every moment in the NOW and find simple pleasures in more ways than you ever have in the past to carry you into the future. You will find new blessings, if you open your heart to receive them.

    JanRN ... You always seem to find "enough" in your minimalist style to give interest yet not take away from the overall beauty. Look forward to seeing it! Good unicorn story! ........ so tell me, how long has it been there and I missed it?

    GGal ... how wonderful that you celebrate both sides. No matter what religion, we really are not far from each other. I am always intrigued about other religions, and would so love to be part of a group who learn about other religions in a comparative sense. Wonder how many there are?

    JeanieG ... OUCH! So glad though that the drugs have worked and you are getting it tended to, so quickly. Thankfully you did get some time with the Grands before needing to leave .... and a mini-FART! When you go back maybe you should rent one of those LAs and finish your quilt up! Good Luck with your root canal.


    Got the first round of post-ice storm damage clean up done on Wednesday. So much more to do ... will be never ending! Is everyone enjoying the milder spring weather? ... Looks like we might see some spring ... my daffodils are starting to poke thru the lawn, and the ancient irises I planted in the flower beds and peeking in the beds ... that is where there is no snow/ice!!

    Finished Miss Kitty last night, except for the hanging sleeve. It's pinned on and waiting hand stitching. This weekend, finally ... monthly theme blocks for my mini hanging rack.

    So sorry to hear the news QuiltingNinaSue. Your positive attitude, combined with all the support you appear to have, will get you through.

    I have now completed 2 more blocks of PC - At the Depot and Bright Hopes. I'll post the pic of all 4 blocks playing together here, but will post each block in its individual thread. Future blocks will be posted in the individual threads but I'll leave a note here so those who wish to follow along, or piece along, can. It may be tough to tell but the two brown fabrics in Bright Hopes are different. One is brown sugar and the other walnut and they have slightly different pumpkin colours.

    W4M- these are just great. I really enjoyed working on the PC and FWS Quilts! I am enjoying them all over again.

    Dublb, please send me your new email address. Yes one eye is gone and hoping the other will hang in there. Twelve weeks may tell the story. Preparing for the worst and hoping for the best. No known treatment for the Optic Nerve swelling...no known cause for it, nothing. Its pure faith that will see me through this period of time. And good friends and family support and prayers. I have miles to go yet, and many quilts to make.

    I am thankful for each and every day...and taking it day by day...hoping for the best and preparing for the worst. So all of you have a wonderful weekend and celebrate it for me.

    W4Me ... I've been to the individual threads ... and now back to see the whole group! Your constant really shows off so many colours and comes across quite warm. You chose well! I see what you mean about the blue being strong, but that will not be so noticeable when you bring in the other more colour intense batiks you have to the mix. Can you put and keep them up on a design wall as you work along? I found that was a big help to me, while doing FWS and PC, to keep an eye on the colour mix and what I needed to focus on ... or get away from!

    DublB ... yes, please, if you would send it to me. Thanks!

    Miss Kitty is done, blocked and drying on the design wall.
    Errands for me today ... with the reward of sewing tonight!

    Thanks carriem - I'm enjoying the process. Piecing is my favourite part of quilting.
    Thank you JeannieG - I hope you keep checking in.
    Thanks dublb - I'm glad you are still working on your PC. It will be nice to have company.
    Thank you QuiltE- I've had the sage and other batiks for a couple of months. It suddenly occurred to me that the sage would be a good constant. I'm glad I appear to be right.
    The design wall is getting pretty full as Vice Versa, a block of the month, is on it as well. Boy, although both quilts are out of Halloween fabrics, they couldn't be more different.

    Arizona and Clover Leaf are also finished and in their appropriate threads. And that is it for PC for this weekend.

    Thanks Anael, the VV cream is a cream fabric with white spider webs. It sure brightens up the other fabrics.

    Thanks for sharing your blocks, w4me. Yes the blue is bright, but used judiciously it maybe the fabric that adds a spark in the overall look of the quilt. From what you have shared you are creating a well balanced quilt. 2 fun quilts for sure.

    QB and I went on local shop hop yesterday. We started at 8:30, hit all the 9 shops. It was 7:30 when I drove into the yard. Picked up several FQ's. One shop had them for $1.50 and hit the mother lode with the $1 FQ's--20 FQ's later they are all washed up and ready to use. Also picked up a couple of yds of red for $4/yd and a blue paisley 2 yd piece @ $4.50/yd. Yes we were both bushed when we came home, but always a good time with lots of good chatter in between shops.

    Have spent some time outside trying to clean up--a daunting task. DH and I planned where the new fence south of the house will be. I loose some lawn, but that's okay, I also loose some unmowable rocky hill that I don't have to landscape!

    Going to go pet some fabric. Also bought BH 2nd leaders and enders book. Hope to get rid of some scraps with it. QB and I just may start cutting fabric and then work together to make some scrappy quilt tops.

    Night all.

    DH and I didn't get a lot of sleep last night, we had Cyclone Ita cross the coast about 4 hours north of us and she has tracked south hugging the coast line ever since. DH got up around 1am to check the house and I woke up about 3am to the sound of howling wind and rain. At 3.30 this morning we were drinking coffee and watching tv. We have had around 10 inches of rain in the last 2 days and our little town has flooded.

    DS rang me just before lunch to tell me that his street was flooding and he was moving his car to higher ground. So I went for a drive.

    The first photo is of his street (sorry it is so dark) you can just see his units on the left, he lives in the last unit. I took the photo standing at the back of my car so just turned around and took a photo of his car. It will stay there until the water recedes.

    The last photo is of the park in the centre of town and the Northbound Land of the Highway, rowboat anyone. The Southbound Land is the same. The highway is closed north and south of town, so we are hoping for no more rain.

    Oh Bev that is awful.

    DS came over for dinner so had to walk through water to get to his car and just as well as the water had risen and it was lapping the tyres so he has had to park it further up the street onto higher ground. The one end of our main street that is high will be full of cars parked there by owners who live in low lying areas
