    GrannyQ ... I can only imagine how difficult this all this is for the two of you. Cancer is so ugly and chemo nasty. I hope that together the two of you can enjoy some simple pleasures on some of those not so bad days and let them be real treasures for both of you. {{{{{HUGS}}}}}



    OKSGlad ... What better pattern could you have chosen than Warm Wishes, for the Warm Wishes you are sending along with the quilt. She'll always have a {{{{HUG}}}} waiting from you, whenever it is needed. Terrific idea for the wedding guests as a take home reminder of your outstanding wedding hosting!

    DD...so happy for you. Wonderful memories for the entire family.
    GrannyQ...what heartache for your family. I pray for more better days.
    Dubib...your Brady house is turning into a hub for family functions! What fun.
    Carrie...it's nice that you're feeling better. We've missed you.
    I've enjoyed the recent rainy, cool weather. We only have inadequate window AC when the weather gets hot so cool summer days are a bonus!

    GrannyQ--you continue to be in my thoughts and prayers (and your husband to). May God give you peace and strength during this time.

    Ggal--it is good to be feeling good again....it was a long time that I just didn't feel like doing any more than I had to.

    Today other than laundry, I am taking the kids (plus a friend or two) to the hotel where I work so they can swim...one of my "benefits". It has been cool here the last couple weeks...nice after those very hot days...but not so good for warming up the river for swimming. This afternoon I am going to start quilting a "retreat quilt" for a friend. My goal is one row a day for the next 4 days...we'll see how that goes.

    GG, I am with you and love the cool days we have had; but, starting today, its warming up again.

    Our duck flock has increased by three...someone bought their grandkids Easter ducks...well, those little darlings grew up and was not so cute and ate too much, so we were offered the ducks to add to ours and dh did accept them.

    Thanks, Ok, for the quit pattern, it looks like my speed for a while...simple and easy and quick. But looks wonderful and beautiful one to cherish and cuddle into to love. I have looked at Stormy Rivers from Stonehenge for a number of years, then took a closer look and the main block is from Blackbeard...that I have tried twice...the first one was the 'holey' one down South, and the second try was not too good either....so will scratch that one off my list 'to do'. Love their colors, hate the pattern.

    Trying to finish "Mama and her kittens', but the border going on straight is not happening like it should...but I am staying on home base for nine days....so will see what happens....if I can straighten out the edges. Dh scared me so much on the last trip to town, I just do not know if I can ride with him again or not....he ran a red light deliberately to show me 'he' was in charge of the driving...never have been in flavor of that or road rage. Its far too risky and reckless driving is dangerous. Thank you, but I will drive myself now....I feel much safer that way.

    Got North Star done this morning. I'm hoping there will be one more block this weekend but not counting on it.

    Got back from our RV Rally yesterday. It was nice, but rather hot - 100* the first day, 95 the second, and 85 on Wednesday.

    Today I went with a friend I recently met to a Fabric sale. The lady who owned all the fabric, and I mean rooms full of fabric, got Alzheimer's and her husband was selling all her stuff. I saw four sewing machines (2 Berninas), tons of beads, ribbons and sewing notions, rulers, cutting mats, and shelves of fabric that had all been folded the same, weighed and priced at $3.00 a yard. I got 7.5 yards at $3.00 apiece, then a 2 yard piece for $1.00 as it had a fade streak on it. I got a 2.5 yard piece for $3.00 and I figured it had a fade line also, but when I opened it up here at home could not find anything wrong with it. I got 3 spools of YLI variegated thread (2 for $2 each, and 1 for $1), and a gallon size bag of fabric strips for $1. All together spent $42.00. I could of spent a ton more, but just did not know what I would use all that stuff for, and my fabric storage cabinet is so full, I don't know if I can get these new acquisitions into it! Fun day!

    JeanieG - Such a sad reason for a sale but the items will be going to people who can appreciate them. You made out well.
    QuiltE - OK, fine. I did one more - Ribbons, yes more Y seams, is complete. The owls were calling to me. Now, time for some long neglected cross stitch.

    Nope, don't need another machine. I have my Babylock that I piece on, and the Brother PQ1500s for quilting. I also have a small Brother I keep in my RV, and my old Singer 503 that I've had since 1962! The rulers were pretty much picked over, only a few odd ball ones left.

    It was really amazing how much she had. They said she was a designer and made up samples and stuff for different companies. Evidently she has been sewing/quilting for over 30 years. Yes, very sad indeed!

    I have been quiet on here for a little while, if you don't hear from me I haven't gone too far away just really really busy.
    I am putting my bow's on hold for a month to give me some time to catch up on other things that need to be done.

    I hope you all understand if you don't hear from me regularly

    Life can be a challenge, especially if you are a female and expected to be a 'super woman' who is the one who gets a lot of stuff done....for everyone and yourself. Take care of thy self, Mirabelle....be good to you, that is what matters the most. We will enjoy your pictures of quilt posting when you are ready., meanwhile we are waving our 'hello" to you.

    Totally understand MiraB .... I look forward to your return, when you are ready.

    Me too!! ... I have been in much the same boat of overhwelmedness (nice new word, eh? ) with more to do than time permits.

    Anael ... oh myyyyyyyyy ..... didn't catch that one!! ... guess I truly am lost in overWHelmedness!

    OKSGlad ... of course, you would know nothing about overWHelmedness!! how many days?

    Guess What Ladies???? ... I actually got to sew a bit on Friday night ... and even a bit more yesterday ... and yes, my plans today include some more, since (for obvious reasons), I have no Father's Day plans!!

    And being that it's 1/2 way thru the month ... guess I should FINALLY post my May Booster results, and my June goals.

    Quote Originally Posted by QuiltE View Post

    So ... Maybe in May????
    1. FMQ and Finish FFC. ... Hallelujah ... completed!
    2. 13 more DJs
    ... only 6 done, though thanks to extras in earlier months that kept me with my 13 per month average ... and two to spare even!
    3. May Theme BOM.
    .nor April's
    4. Sand and refinish spare quilting table.
    ... Completed early in the month, and sitting to the side, waiting to be called in order!

    I already know I have stretched this list ... so, I am not going to be disappointed if I don't get it all done!! These last few months have sure reminded me how good it is to put it out there ... and I am more likely to achieve it.
    So thank you, Boosters, one and all ... for doing your part to keep me on task ... instead of totally goofing off! Definitely ... without this accountability, I am sure I would not have accomplished as much as the little I did get done. I hope our goals listing is helping my Booster Buddies, as much as it is helping me to plan my To Do's ... and see some accomplishments!

    Now for June's plans ... OK, the month is 1/2 gone, but my glass IS 1/2 full, so I am looking for a good finale to the month!!! Keeping it simple and realistic ........
    1. 13 more DJs
    2. QOTS Minis BOM ... complete to date (first month done, 2nd and 3rd to do)
    3. Theme BOM Mini Quilts ... make June's and one more (April? May? July?)
    4. Bridal Shower gift ... have it started before month-end (needed for July 6th)
    5. Pick my next UFO project to complete ... and make the plans (no sewing required!)

    Wish me progress today!

    Good luck with your goals QuiltE. What are you going to make as a Bridal Shower gift?
    Do you need one of my UFO's? In case you can't decide

    Hi Everyone, Just came back from Delaware..visited my sister...didn't see her for several months so it was overdue...Went to Bingo & won $$...played the slots at the casino and won $$..bought a lottery ticket and won $.. came home on Friday, went to work on Saturday and spent some of it!!! ... While in De I had an episode and almost passed out...my BP was extremely low... Had to lay down. ice packs all over my head, neck...had some juice & water...felt better after that...rested for an hour then drove home....I think the Vertigo situation had something to do with it....Have to see the Dr on Monday.

    We all need to take time for ourselves to do whatever we have to do...replenish our energies, etc... I am taking it easy as I'm going to work 4 days next week..just 5 hours a day..no long hours...I might get some sewing done then..The girls at work know I'm having my knee done soon so they have to take their time off as I'll be out of commission for awhile.
    I finally found my camera..it was in the glove box of DH's car...
    I'll now be able to take some photos of the little things I'm playing with...

    Have a wonderful day everyone...

    Honchey ... Well that was a lot of good news ... the winning$ and the $pending$, Do you have a date set yet for your knee?

    **whistling a happy tune**
    as I soon will be off to my Happy Sewing Place!

    How time flys by...remember bringing second daughter home back in 1971 on Father's Day.

    And a week from Thursday seems a long time away; if I am lucky, I do not have to travel anywhere this week, so keeping cool in the Quilting Room.... working on UFOs. My eyes are getting better, I threaded the sewing machine today and checked all the four patch pieces dh had made for me....most all were 'short' and not three and half inches square. More like three and a quarter by three and a half... fpr the TW. Dh was sure I was not seeing right and he had to start measuring all of them, trying to blame me when he had measured and sewn them. So they all went into a marked plastic bag and I started up sewing them accurately and slowly. Need to do borders for two different queen sized quilts, finish binding on three or four foot quilt gifts.. working out designs for two king sized quilt for DS and his lady companion in Texas...so many to sew...from fabrics in my stash. And enjoying seeing every stitch made.

    Hope your surgery goes well, Honchey. Enjoy your winnings and your short days at work.

    I have 'lots' to do here if anyone wants to come vacation in my sewing room...sewing with a sew-sew

    I totally agree, Jeanie, it would be nice for all of us to gather in one place and get to meet one another; now if we can discover the bush or tree that $$$$$+ grown on, we can all fly to meet one another!
