    Thank you MiraB ... I've been enjoying the extra embellishing touches lately.
    I think there will be more bits of embroidery to come, when possible.
    Have you done any more quilts for your little rack?

    No I haven't made any new little quilts for my rack, although I do have 3 paper pieced patterns sitting on my desk that I will make as soon as I finish quilting Spike. Have 5 blocks finished, 7 to go.

    DD is coming home for the weekend so Roast Lamb and all the trimmings for dinner tomorrow night and Chicken Pie on Friday night. As this is the only time all of us will be together for a while and it is only 2 weeks till DH's birthday he will get his quilt on Friday night..(hope he likes it)?????????????????

    So it's almost 12 hrs later ... which will mean that MiraB is finished the Spikes ... or on the home stretch! Get up and drink that first coffee and pitter patter, get at'er! We all want to see! Silly woman ... of course MrMiraB is going to LOVE that new quilt! Looking forward to seeing what your new minis will be.

    DublB ... thanks! I think he will stay in place for awhile, just so I can enjoy him more!

    8 blocks finished 4 to go on Spike and I am really liking it, doing a lot of SID as I want the blocks to shine. Might not do much tomorrow as my darling DD arrived home tonight for the weekend and she wants me to do some embroidery for her.

    Tomorrow night HE will be presented with THE Quilt so I will let you all know his reaction and see if I can get a pic of him with the quilt..

    Thank you all for your encouragement and support.

    I didn't git on my computer a'tall yesterday. First I had lunch w/ an old DF. How did we not run inta each other in the last 25 or more years? We have both lived in the same town durrin' that whole time. I spent most o' yesterday sewin' strip sets for the "Stratta Spin" class that will be presented at the retreat that I'm goin' on next week.
    taday my DGSon came ta play. That always makes me smile I'm kinda tired now though. I actually think that I'll be headed ta bed real soon.

    I'm sure he will love the quilt, mirabelle.

    I designed and painted some witch feet fabric and have posted the block photo in Maud's Album Quilt thread.

    Th'sevenin' my family & I went ta Red Lobster for my B-day. The babies sure got real hungry as we had a 54 min wait till we got ta even go inside. They were cryin' once we sat down. #1DSon & DDIL were so frustrated about how fussy the kids were. It's what kids are gonna do if they are hungry. Once they had food they settled down. I tried crab legs for the first time & decided that that's way too much work! DDIL had 3 Shrimp scampi (sp?) left & let me try 'em. Those were wonderful! I tried some about 25 years ago & they were over spiced, but I really liked these. She & I also talked about the fact the neither o' us have ever tried any lobster. We are gonna leave the boys w/#1DSon some time & just the 2 o' us split a lobster. Have I mentioned that I have the best DDIL ever?
    #1DSon & DDIL gave me lovely footstool that is decorated a bit like a crazy quilt. Sequins, machine embroidery, lace, beads! I'll never put my feet on it, ever! It's so purdy! #2DSon gave me a tin o' soothin' tea & a li'le decorative piece that had a sayin' about Mothers & high standards. DH reminded me that my Janome was both a Valentines day gift & a birthday gift. I love my Janome.
    Earlier ta day my DF & I spoke on the phone about what we are bringin' & how much fun we are gonna have on our retreat. I leave Mon. mornin'. I'll git ta her house by evenin'. She lives a bit east o' Dallas. I've been there once before. We will head out ta og ta Branson early Tues morning. Plans are made & we are just gonna have a ball!

    I love retreats! The laughter, the games, the food (whether we bring it in or go out) the classes, the charity event, the quilts that git done, & the friendships that form, are just wonderful!

    Good morning everyone. I've just been catching up on all the posts. What wonderful interesting lives we are so blessed to have.

    I have "locked" myself in the Bat Cave this past week trying to finish up some projects. I'm so envious of everyone's productivity: MiraB and her finished quilts, Anael with all her block projects and beautiful wall hanging; GGal visiting with QBs; Jeanine back from her trip; Bev and her awesome birthday celebration; QE with her bunnies and other projects. Hope Carrie and GrannyQ and QNS and the other PCers are doing well.

    It's almost the end of April and I still have some (well most)goals to reach. SYE is coming along, still not 100% sure of the borders. The pieced borders seem too busy but a plain border looks, well, too plain. This week I will make the decision and finish it! I don't work until Friday this week so there should be no excuses (but I'm sure I'll find a few).

    Have a great day, ladies, do something you love today!

    Hello, everyone! I am back again into the saddle...Wednesday morning appointment with Dr confirmed that the swelling was reduced in my optic nerve...not perfect...but better. It made our day and trip a brighter one...but have lost my camera that recorded the trip...somewhere...maybe in the last Casey's parking lot. So what happened on the bus trip, stays on the bus trip...including all the shop pictures,etc. ...darn it.

    Prayers have helped, I believe, and I am so thankful that I can now finish my projects. I see the Dr. again in the middle of May.

    We were a part pf five buses that made the same circuit of quilt shops...five in all...they fed us and let us shop for two hours in every shop. The highlight for me was the Quilting on the Square in Holton, Kansas.;and meeting "Mary" there who designed our SYEs blocks. Not only did they help with myi Dear Jane, they had the perfect fabric to finish my PC borders. And I did have fun on the FART ...too many 'things' became my favorite find on the trip. The 'chocolate' drops that melted on our whitle pants before the first stop is history(my fault); the going into the wrong motel room not assigned to us by mistake is forgotten, and trotting off to the 'wrong' shop from bus is forgiven, except they caught the action on film....so have to shop more there so that part of the film will be lost from anyone viewing it...so many memories, so much fun...and back home early makes a bonus day to get unpacked, laundry caught up and fabric to enjoy , and new pattern projects to study.

    Celebrate the week, everyday is promising to be a great day.

    What a wonderful birthday celebration dublb. Happy Birthday.
    Glad the eye news was better this time QuiltingNinaSue.
    I managed to make Betty's Delight last night and have posted it on its photo thread. I thought the black web fabric would look good with the sage in this block and I was not disappointed.

    Works4me, I took a picture of the 'halloween section' at the Higgingsville Shop just for you..small witches and shoes, etc., I love how you are working your 'design' for PC. The camera is found in bf's car, apparently it ran away like my cats did when DGS was here...guess I over used it. HA Ha.

    Happy Birthday, Bev. Enjoy the retreat. Yes,, I loved the laughter of the group trip we were all and comparing the places we had visited separately at different times...lady ahead of me on the bus has been married 65 years..she and her three sisters were on the bus trip. The credit card company man questioned why they were needing 17 rooms for thirty women at the Red Roof Inn...on the trip. Wonder where his mind was???

    Yes, Mirabelle, Mr. M will love his quilt...he will know the love you stitched in every block. Love all of you and your progress on every project and your stories....I am addicted to this site, lving every story..l

    Glad you found your camera QuiltingNinaSue. It will be nice to relive the trip through those photos. I'd love to see that Halloween photo.

    Thank you for the kind words.

    And A Dandy is done. That's it for this weekend. 12 blocks are now done.

    Good morning to all. A belated birthday wish to you Bev--what a great day for you and now off to retreat. One of the older ladies in my guild has a goal to take in a retreat every month of 2014!

    QNS, good news in small doses is always good news. And what a trip you had--I smiled through your whole post, what fun!

    Jeanie, back safe and sound after good time with friends. What projects do you have lined up?

    Now we know why Jan has been silent....she's getting some quilting done...Way to go. And we haven't heard from mirabelle for a couple of days....guess the BD quilt really went over big

    QNS - what wonderful news on your eye, and what a marvelous trip you had. Sounds like so much fun!

    works4me - that quilt is just going to be stunning. It is amazing how the sage background fabrics spiderwebs just jump out at you when you have them all together. WOW!!!

    Jan is getting stuff done, not like me!!! I got all the borders on my Bonnie Hunter Mystery Celtic Soltice finished. Yeah! I picked up the white fabric I ran out of in Phoenix when I was there a few weeks ago. I'll get a photo today and post for you all.

    I've been in kind of a quilting slump, which is unusual for me. I think all my projects being PP are getting to me. I get bored easily and like to do varied things. I'm so tired of PP. I've only got 8 of the 50 Fab Stars done, and half of the SYE blocks. I keep walking into my sewing room and looking at the Star in progress and walking back out! I think I really like regular piecing so much better! I think I'm going to sandwich Celtic Solstice and have that to quilt so I'll have something other than PP to do.

    I still have six UFO's on my list I made in January that need to be done. Four are flimsys that need to be sandwiched and quilted. Two are ones that still need to have the blocks sewn together.
