    JanRN, I have the neighbor friend across the street that charges a penny a square foot with her LA Gramill. Figues out to about 120. for regular quilt, about 130 queen sized quilt. Or Helen Wyatt will do them for forty dollars a quilt.....

    Carrie, I am sorry. DH was hammering on me so hard this morning, I forgot to post the envelope that was all ready to go. Will stick it into the mail box tomorrow to you. He gets me so upset I could scream...oh Lord, have Mercy, please let me see to drive myself again.

    Yes, I am enjoying the visits of my new QB friend and emails from her. There is a chance now I may finish the projects that I have started...just maybe. Not being able to see clearly is so annoying.

    Suddenly, this afternoon Quilt Room, as I was cutting out the black for the Cat wall hanging, I realized I was seeing 20/20 again. Hope it checks out on the 12th with the Drs appointment, it was wonderful seeing again this afternoon...Mercy, mercy, mercy...for the first time since April first, no blurry vision or spots, etc...will see how it looks in the morning. ... Amazing.

    Hi Everyone, Just got back online and have a ton of posts to read...will do the catching up later...

    QNS, glad to hear you're doing better...

    Cable guy hopefully fixed the problem on the pole this morning...I was going thru withdrawal symptoms. .got tired of playing solitare!!!

    Everyone has been very busy with their projects and the finished quilts shown are just so great...
    I see that Mirabelle is still "charged up" and Carriem is catching up !!!

    Went to the dentist for a crown impression for my now healthy tooth...2 1/2 hours in the chair.. glad the ordeal is almost over....one more month to wait until I can think about the appt for the knee replacement...I am working one day in about 2 weeks and then 3 days in June...looking forward to being in the shop...I feel very uninspired right now and everything seems to be a struggle....I made a sample for a class sometime in the future for beginners using Jelly rolls while I was in NC, just need to put the top & bottom border on, ran out of fabric for it...Picked some up the other day..I knew it's a pattern that they keep in stock.....photos are still in the camera...with all the problems with the internet I couldn't very well send them....
    It's raining here in NJ and my azaelas are blooming...the pollen count is out of site and I'm praying I don't get another allergy attack...my eyes look like peaches when that happens....I'll be staying inside as much as possible to avoid that...now would be a good time to get some housework done...I have too much stuff in this old house..time to get rid of some of it... H.

    At the retreat I coordinated a charity quilt along & here are the 2 quilts that we made for a children's home that is in Missouri. This is all I got done at the retreat.

    Dubib...so good to hear from you and the quilts will be much appreciated.
    Honchey...very good news! Good progress to better health.
    QNS...I hope this a complete reversal of the problem with your eye and that your vision will remain good.
    Yesterday was a really fun day!!! I explored three quilt shops and a lot of countryside inbetween. I realized as I was driving that I've spent about half of my life in the southern WI and northern IL area and so enjoyed the sense of coming home. The shops were wonderful. I've come to the conclusion that I really prefer scrappy type quilts so didn't get much yardage but raided the FQs with much success....especially their sale bins. Also went to Joanne and got some of those wonderful storage boxes to put them in. They were on sale too!
    just now I'm sitting in my DD's sunporch watching the birds at their bird feeders and what wouldn't wander up but a very large skunk! Fortunately all of their outside cats are still in the garage so hopefully nothing will provoke it to defend itself and smell up their entire back yard.
    Today it's raining so I think I'll spend time making flying geese for the sashing for my Undergroung Railroad quilt. I've got everything kitted up.

    Yes, Ann, I am the old grey mare, and bf is the dark haired beauty. TW is not red, white and blue....that is the 50 stars...the TW was pictured earlier on is aqua blue, red with brown, brown with golden specks, aqua snowball blocks. QB who came last Tuesday said it sang to her...

    Since the Bus Tour was my first, I wanted to document it by pictures, so I could reference them to know what was where; thank you for sharing your comments. I did not picture anything at the International Quilt Museum where camera flashes can damage the quilts. It is located at Lincoln, NE., where DD lives and we were having a very short conversation when the director was hurrying me to get into the group picture...time was of the essences there..but I thought he could have handled it differently. We were fed by the respective quilt stores for lunch and supper...and the hotel feed us breakfast....bus mom provided the snacks and drinks. Well worth the dollar spent for the trip.

    Still holding to finishing what I have started, so no new projects were purchased on the trip...except for some little wall hanging patterns. Each quilt shop gave us a goody bag as well. Shawee Kansas gave us a Schwan's Ice Cream sandwich for dessert. Bf found the first 'shop' bag for both of us, and I found the second one at another store...only two stores offered the bags...so we were even buying the 'bags' for each of us.

    I am assembling the 'cats' of many colors now...have 15 different colors for twenty cats and kittens. Slow progress, working only in the afternoons when my vision is the best.

    QNS, The guild I belong to in NC makes quilts for the Wounded Warriors group in that area to auction off to help pay to bring them home for the Holidays....I have a bunch of Patriotic Fabric that can be used for these quilts and was thinking that the Tennessee Waltz pattern would be an easy one to do with using w/w/stars would be ok...what do you think??? what size blocks to use?? 9" or 12"???

    Hey Ya'll. I had a special day w/my DM & DGM. DM took me shoppin' for my B-day present. I asked for a long (60") bathmat & we found it. It cost less than my DM wanted ta spend, so we found a cat tower. I sure hope that it'll keep my cat from destroyin' my house. At the old house my cat was mostly an outside cat, but here he hardly goes out a'tall. He feels that he has ta sharpen his claws somehow.

    dublb - if you get some catnip and rub it on the post of the tower, he will start using the tower for his claws, at least that is what I did to attract my cat to his post. He uses his post all the time. He is also goes outside.

    Mine are funny cats, they do not like cat nip. They were 'helping' me in the Mother's Day front flower bed this mornng, doing their 'thing'. Dh has 'borrowed' all my tools from my green wheeled cart during the winter, so need to find where they all are to plant the bed. With my sight so affected, my walking is not my steady gait, just one step at a time...

    Trying to 'reclaim' my kitchen after Dh had 'rearranged' my big pans down on the baking counter in the way; he just had to get back in the dishpan and wash dishes this morning. Guess he created more dirty dishes this morning and washed everything up. And he is trying his best to find; reasons why he needs to go to DM on Monday when I go...and I am getting very hard of hearing...cannot hear a word. We did map out the garden for this season this morning...dh had already planted four tires to his Red Corn from Australia...and is looking for a tiller to work up more ground to plant more Red Corn...and his onions are going into four more tires. Couple of tires will be for Yukon Gold potatoes, another for herbs. About six tomato plants is all we agreed on setting out. Its dry here, and looks like a very dry summer. Rains go West or East of us....none here. Back to planting. You all have a good day.

    Yup, DH & I are plannin' ta git some cat nip. We have just been too busy taday. We'll git tamarrow.
    Sue it seems like ya are gittin' a great start on your garden. WE are gonna be way behind th's year. My trip ta Branson sure slowed us down. It looks like we are already gittin' hot here. In the upper 90's taday. We did git 6 tomatoes planted about 5 weeks ago & they have tomatoes on 'em already. Part o' taday was spent makin' tomato cages. They are gonna do great! The rest o' the beds are gonna have ta made ready for a fall garden. I'm not sure that DH realizes that yet. Hmmm I guess that okra isn't too late yet. Okra loves the heat!

    I don't dare try catnip with my two feline friends. They are already crazy enough.
    So glad to hear you are getting outside in the fresh air QNS. Fresh air and sunshine seem to make everything better, IMO.
    3 more blocks today. That means 15 are now complete. Mayflower, Hen and Her Chicks and Sunshine.
    This is the fabric used for Mayflower. It is another one that I designed and dyed.

    That was wet. The design turned ghostly when dry.

    Honchey...they are the deep Artbins. They have dividers if needed and FQs fit in them perfectly.
    Today, the girls got their bees to repopulate their 8 hives and I got to help them. It was a fun learning experience. Something that I would like to investigate doing. I know there are bee keepers in my area but I just never thought if doing it myself.

    Gardnergal - I was a beekeeper for a while, back in the 70's. It was my dad's retirement hobby. We both went to classes at the local community college on how to keep bees. My dad made all the supers, and put all the frames together. We had an extractor and got lots of honey. We sold it for a nominal amount. It was fun! I had to give up the hobby when my first husband and I got a divorce - as we had 5 1/2 acres on a hill, and that is where we kept the bees.
