    Yay for you QNS! Isn't it amazing that here you are just a few hours post-op and your vision is already clearer? I'm so glad everything went well and your recovery continues. Prayers do get answered.

    The eye is swollen and sore, because the cataract was so large. And I still have more surgery coming up in two weeks to remove the 'spot' on the left side of my nose. Not home free yet. I see the regular eye doctor tomorrow, and wait to hear from the surgeon on Friday. So no quilting....yet. Yes, the drops are going in as per instructions, and pasting the shield over the eye at night. And hoping....

    Well at least that one is over QNS! Glad you have better vision despite the discomfort. We will continue to pray for the"spot", hoping it will be ok too.

    I've been sneaking peeks now and again. Amidst all the comings and goings I caught a flu bug (chills, low fever, and body aches) and have been under the weather the last couple of days. Didn't know I could sleep all afternoon and still sleep the night through. Guess the body knows what to do when you're not feeling the best. Better tonight and hopefully better tomorrow. Good thing I voted early on Tuesday.
    QNS, I have been thinking of you and am so glad your eye surgery went well. Soon you'll be sewing up a storm as winter sets in. Hoping the skin spot is just that.
    Jeanie, like your quilt, but yes it's got some yellow zing to it. Have you auditioned a pink yet? Is it going to soften the brightness?
    Honchey--cute little angel. I have a lot of angel Christmas ornaments and angels in one of the spare rooms, but just a few churches here and there.
    Yup, Carrie you are young and enjoy the comings and goings of your family. I'm sure you are realizing that as DD is fast approaching graduation and starting a life on her own that the days are precious. Glad to hear you've got some sewing done.
    Last week I decided to rearrange furniture. I have 2 nice oak finished cupboards and matching bookcase downstairs. One of the cupboards I've had fabric in. Well I'm moving those pieces upstairs to our bedroom and have moved the antique oak wardrobe down in the sewing space--that means another rearranging is going on. I hope I am satisfied with it and it will be my last and and I can settle in and sew. I think I have all the fabric put away now accept for the small scraps. I've been cutting out pieces for this quilt, but using scrap fabrics of tans and various dark colors instead of the light tans and blues. Just have a few of the lights to cut and then I can put this "kit" away for winter sewing. The block is log cabin like, and can be turned this way or that for different looks. Think I will use the second lay out.
    We just found out DH's cousin has has lung cancer (never a smoker) that has spread to her hip. I've found some fabric to put together a comfort quilt for her while she has treatments, so that's a priority--can I get it down by Sunday--we'll see. Night all.

    OK - that is just the most wonderful quilt! I think I favor the 1st one, but they are both amazing! So sorry about your DH's cousin. Sometimes you just wonder, don't you! A non smoker getting lung cancer!

    I am taking the quilt top with me to Phoenix, I'll have time there to take off the border and make a replacement. We will be leaving on Monday for our monthly RV Group campout, then we are going to Phoenix to visit my son and grandkids. Be gone a couple of weeks.

    Love your designs, OK. And making a comfort quilt is a great thing to do. When my BFF was getting chemo she was always cold so I made her one that she was always wrapped up in. She "took it with her" when she passed. I was honored.

    I got the notice yesterday, my younger second cousin had died in Council Bluff. Never met her but once back in 1959. Nice to hear you all know your cousins and second cousins, and so on. Always thought family was important, but never had that feeling returned since I lost both grandparents who raised us....and DGM died in 1980 And DM in 1981. Life goes on. Kids are all involved in their own lives, not any of them close to us to visit with. except once or twice a year.

    Thanks for the friends we have met and care enough to visit when they can. Or/and the QB for the friends who visit on line.

    OK, I like the first one, but either one will be a wonderful gift from you and will be loved I am sure.

    Everone have a wonderful day.

    We were close as cousins - all lived in the same town when we were young, and saw each other often. As we all got older, most on my DM's side went to college and moved away. A couple I have hardly ever seen since (so sad), or we saw each other at funerals!

    The same is true today. I hardly see any of my cousins. I lost my last Uncle a few months ago, at the age of 94. Several on my DM's side lived into their 90's. The cousins on my DF's side still live in my home town or nearby. I see them around once a year. I am the oldest of the cousins on my DF's side.

    I am trying to imagine California sunshine here today..but I know winter is coming on.

    Moved Mega and her cage out to the garage that is heated with a new heater now...it is warm enough for her. We cleaned out our 'hen pen' for incoming cats on Thursday. Bf has sold her farm and the cats will have a home here, until she can have them again, if that happens...time will tell. Meeting her half way in Columbia, Mo., to pick up Tiger and Calico. She told of a mountain lion who drove their cattle into a corner of the fence, then sat down and watched the cows. And the time when she discovered herself some 200 feet from it, and slowly backed away from it.

    Waiting for Doctor's office to call and schedule the operation to remove the spot on my nose. Will have to try and arrange a driver for that distance, too. Like to finish the operation and get it behind me before bad weather sits in for the winter.

    May everyone have a good day, smile, and laugh a bit, too.

    Hi Everyone, DH & I are finally off to NC this coming Monday...I can't wait to get away...I just hate all the packing & unpacking after we get there....I am sore as hell..I fell after attempting to back into the seat of a rolling chair & fell on my butt...then the chair had the audacity to fall on top of me...I have several bruises to show for it..I should know better...same chairs at work....

    Cousins...I am one of a total of 36 cousins, both sides of the family. I am very close to my cousins on my Fathers side (18)..not so close but still very friendly, don't see them very often..On my Dad's side there were many celebrations where we all got together. All Holidays & Birthdays as we lived fairly close together. a couple of miles apart..My Mom's family lived several hours away and we only got together (as kids) during summer vacations..we no longer communicate, everyone has gone their own ways...It's seems to be the way with some families...All of my Aunts & Uncles on both sides are gone.. most lived into their 80's...Life is good but it can also be so sad...Ahhh, enough about the reminiscing...Have a good weekend everyone..talk to you after I get to NC... H.

    Anne - so sorry about that chair slipping out from under you. Yep, had that happen to me before too! Hope your feel better soon! If you are anything like me, you will be black and blue for awhile. Dang, I sometimes don't even know what I ran into for some of my bruises! LOL

    Anne & Jeanie, I think those rolling chairs should come with some kind of warning LOL. I do the Alzheimer's testing at our office and was getting ready to test an elderly man who had his wife & daughter with him. They're usually very nervous anyway because they don't want to hear the diagnosis. I try to be calming and professional. I walked in, introduced myself, went to sit on the rolling chair and Plop!! I went right to the floor! So much for professional! They helped me up and we had a good laugh but I was sore for days. My pride was more injured than my backside LOL.

    I've been busy gittin' ready for my DNieces baby shower. I had trouble gittin' my stuff ready as I kept havin' ta go & teach my DSis how ta make hers. Yesterday was supposed ta be my sewin' day. I ended up goin' ta her house last night. I made 4 43" X 43" blankets. 2 o' 'em were flannel. On the gray flannel one I put a blue applique elephant in the corner. I was gonna make a kinds cheater quilt. I bought some natural colored prequilted "fabric". I dyed it gray & put a blue bindin' on it. I was then gonna put an elephant in the corner o' it also. As I was tryin' ta fuse the elephant I touched the iron ta the bindin'. Now that iron was real hot 'cause I was havin' trouble gittin' the flannel ta fuse. Well when I touched the iron ta that bindin' it melted!!!! I thought it was cotton but It melted like it was polyester! Well she got 4 blankets & no quilt.
    Everyone seemed ta like both gifts from my DSis & myself. That fleece quilt was just darlin'. I'm startin' ta feel like I'm a good teacher.

    Oh ouch, Honchey!! Sounds like Jan knows how you felt. Sometimes hate mine on carpet, but there is a positive to it!
    Bev's bouncing all over again with her projects...good for you

    This morning helped clean church--many hands light work--got flannel for backing of cousins quilt and finished this up for SIL's mother's BD--now to get it off in the mail. She celebrates her 80 BD so a Dutch flag with 80 different fabrics. Thought the Iowa fabric perfect for the backing.

    Ok, another small quilt sewn with l o v e. Lovely. Love the "Iowa" fabric on the back.

    Honchey, I can see why you fell in love with the 'angel' craft..very crafty.

    Dublb, you do stay very busy. Nice that you help the family and teach quilting to all those who want to learn.

    Everyone have a lovely weekend with family.

    You may not hear from me for awhile! We are heading out for our Nov. RV Camping trip tomorrow, then on to Phoenix to visit my son and the grandkids. No WIFI at the campground, and limited in Phoenix. We will be gone a couple of weeks. Will check in when I can!

    Hey ya'll I tried ta take it easy taday but DH's truck broke down just 2 blocks from the house. I wasn't even dressed yet so I hurried & put my cloths on. DH walked back & grabed the tow strap. Any way I ended up towin' him & his truck home. Once I was home I did several things around here. Since DH retired we asked our housekeeper ta do half o' what she was doin'. She'll do half the house th'sweek & the other half next week. She has taken up a second job & was kinda relieved ta not come as much. This meant that I have ta do more o' it myself. So I got busy th'smornin' doin' stuff. I also actually cooked. I got the casserole ready at about 2:00 & put it in the fridge. Once 4:30 rolled around I popped it inta the oven. I went & picked DGN up at 3:00 as usual.

    Hi Everyone is busy as usual!

    I got a little quilting in today....now have 3 of 7 rows quilted. I should have time to get at least 1 more done tomorrow, maybe 2. I am getting low on thread though so hope it holds out until my order gets here!! I know I don't have enough to finish the quilt. If only I had pieced with a different color....oh well. School is going well (better than expected) with all 3 kids home. I worked at the quilt shop Saturday...doing that just once a month now. I was good and just bought some backing. It was fun to see lots of new fabrics!

    I check in when I can...sorry I don't post as much as I used to....

    I post too much Carrie; it makes others think that I should get a life and not dwell here as much as I do....LOL!

    Yes, Honchey, I am doing the drops as the Dr said; I am very thankful that I have had excellent doctors trying their best to improve my sight. It's not perfect, but better than what it was. I am going back to visit the couple that has over 700 quilt tops in their home and making more as that is all she can do now.... with our neighbor. We will be delivering the picture album and the nice comments QB members made on her quilts to cheer her up a bit. Wish An honest dealer could be found to sell her tops in the Northeastern USA...New York, perhaps, or wherever the market is that they sell well there. Glad to here your arrived safe in NC.

    Today, the neighbor and I visited a quilter in Pollock that does a Queen sized quilt for $50.00, with her furnishing the batting and doing the binding. She is booked through Christmas. Then we visited the LA quilter across the street and she can do a quilt or two for Christmas for each of us, so that was good news. We came back to talk about quilting and quilting patterns until after dark. We were talking so much, we failed to notice darkness falling outside. Not much done in the quilting room today.

    So is the PC swap going on now, the dates seem to indicate a swap...cannot join, just curious.

    Did not get home until after dark and dh was upset at me, called and said "git home' which was hard to do when I left with another neighbor, and she was driving me back home. But we made it home by 6:30 PM. Discovered an extra cat in the garage....think it left again. Tomorrow is a new day. Good night all....and Happy Thanksgiving Day!!
