    We left about 13 packages of hamburger, 3 chuck roasts and one package of sirloin from our last beef we purchased from a neighbor. He has another quarter of beef for us in March. Worth more per pound now than then. Processed six quarts of ground meat and Venison steak (from a cousin back on dh childhood home front) tonight, dh stripped the boiled bones and I have 8 quarts ready to process in the morning. Crock pots did not work in the electrical outlets where I had them, so I changed to different outlets, trying to cook them all night, and hopefully, be ready in the morning to cut up all the boneless rump roasts One step at a time.

    Then I can thaw the pork or do some of our hens and ducks before Friday. So nice that the processor canner is working and does the 90 minutes per batch.

    Now I get to read a while, then go to bed about nine or nine thirty. I am not a night owl at my age; need my sleep and love to eat! JanRn, its so nice you are enjoying your retirement. Honchey, lovely little scraps to arrange the way you want too in your quilts. Carrie, sounds like progress to me, on your new 'cave'. Ok, you always amaze me what all you get done on the farm and in your community, and in your sewing room. Love the stories and show of the quilts.

    I have had a crazy weekend. Sat AM Dh sent an e-mail ta me that showed a 2003 Sequoia. Gosh, it was sure lovely! I like the first generation Tundra's better than the 2012 that I have been drivin'. It was DH's Tundra & he said that If I didn't like it, after drivin' it a bit, I could git an earlier one. Well I"ve been lookin' for either a first gen Tundra or Sequoia for about 3 months now. The ones around here have mostly been used in the oilfeild thus have their wheels driven off. Anyway Dh sent me this e-mail & asked if I liked it. It was in Hurst TX. (A suburb o' Ft Worth) Well I liked it based on the pictures. So all day on Sat Dh talked back & forth w/the dealership in Hurst till he had a preliminary deal. So yesterday we drove the 5.5 hours & stayed in a hotel. Taday we saw the Sequoia & they saw our Tundra. Well, I'm a happy camper as we drove the Sequoia home. It was in great shape! The seats were so much better on my back. It is a purdy grey & has heated seats.

    Bev, good luck with your new car. your dh is a keeper to find it for you.

    Honchey did you join the latest mystery quilt series?

    We got 20 quarts of beef done and it wore both of us out, so no more canning this week. we are putting more inside storm windows up to stop the flow of cold air in from outside. It has helped a lot in dh's room, so will do all three windows on the North side and my bathroom on the East side. My floor keeps my feet so cold, I feel like we are in Alaska again. Alaska has had to cancel its dog sled racing in Kenai this year....not enough snow there.

    Everyone have a good day.

    Happy Anniversary, Bev. 32 years is a lot to celebrate these days.

    Honchey, I sympathize with your dh; my 'surgery' is tomorrow when they crave on my left side of my nose until they get it all removed. If they crave to deep, then they have to do reconstruction surgery. Have my fingers crossed that they can get it all and don't have to do that.

    Happy Anniversary, dublb! I've often thought that 25 is a major milestone in this day and age. Congratualtions to you and Mrdublb! Enjoy the "new ride".

    Best of luck tomorrow QNS. Will be thinking of you. All that canning....but you know how tasty that meat will be in stew or just beef and gravy...

    I've just sent off Oct's pics. Will send December's later. Happy Sewing!

    Beautiful pictures, OK. I feel like I have been to a quilt show without leaving home.... only I cannot touch them and give them a pat. But at Quilt Shows these days....you cannot touch or take pictures!

    Thanks everyone for the positive thinking and prayers. I will report tomorrow evening on how it went!

    Happy anniversary, Bev. And a new car--lucky gal.

    Anne, hope all went well today for you & MrHonchey. Take that well-deserved nap.

    QNS, will be thinking about you tomorrow and hope all goes well.

    Trying to find a solution to a big mess. I'm not a pre-washer unless the fabric is dark blue, black, or purple. I test other colors before using. (I'm talking about batiks). I made a table topper out of one of my 50 Stars, it's orange & brown (which I hate), got it quilted, sprayed the blue marks and it the orange bled. It did not bleed when I tested it. The background is off-white with some yellowish orange swirls so one place looks like it's part of the swirls. The other place looks like a bleed. What do I do? It's sitting there staring at me right now. Should I bind it and wash it with color catchers? Is it a total loss? Help me, ladies--I'm counting on you! Thanks so much!!!

    If you dried it with heat, JanRN, it may be set. But I would wash it again with a color catcher.

    Lots going on for everyone this week. Praying things turn out well for all. Hugs!!

    Sorry Jan, I don't know what to tell you. I never pre-wash...just add 3-4 color catchers in the washer for a large lap/twin quilt. If the color catchers are dark I wash again before drying...more a couple new ones thrown in.

    Congratulations on your anniversary Bev...

    Ok, great pictures with your guild.. all of you get so much accomplished.

    Jan, I've gotten many a spot or blur of stain removed by making a paste of Oxiclean and q-tiping it on the area..let it sit for awhile then rinsing it off..but on a quilt I don't know... there is a color remover on the market you might be able to "spot" clean it..the problem with any of this is the running of the surrounding fabric....if you have any of the same fabric left over I would try any of the above on that fabric first to see what would happen to it.
    Next step for DH is on the 23rd..getting closer to the end procedure which will be scheduled within a week of the 23rd...so hopefully we'll be done with it all by the middle of February and on our way to NC..
    Nina, hope your procedure goes well for you today...

    Now to find 24 lights and 24 medium lights for the next step in the mystery train ride...

    Jan, can you find a product called "Zout" in the laundry aisle. It's in a thick liquid form. I used this on a red and white block that bled while I was steam pressing. And yes it had been pre washed and dried. Apply it to the stained area and any other susceptible spots. Wash it, see how it looks, and then dry it. Best of luck.

    Hope all's going okay for QNS.

    Tomorrow, like Orphan Annie sang long ago. Tomorrow, I get the nose job and hope they can finish in two hours.... and no reconstruction. But I think that is why the Eye Surgeon quit and is letting the skin specialist do the deed, he thought it when in too far for him to have it heal without the reconstruction Dr. Josh Wilson will be doing at Lakeview on Friday in Des Moines.

    Hushand wants more rice pudding made; I used Honchey's recipe and he loves it. I am going to the kitchen and start on it. Everyone have a good day.

    Thank you all for the suggestions re my fabric bleed. I went to Walmart very early this am; they just added back the fabric dept so I thought maybe they'd have Synthrapol. Nope. Went to the laundry aisle and found something called Carbona Color Run Remover. It worked!! Removed all trace of the bleed but I noticed it dulled the orange fabric a little in areas. The orange was overwhelming anyway so it looks much better toned down. It was to be donated to an auction but I'm rethinking it; I have other items. I just don't like bright orange. Thanks again for the suggestions--I can always count on yinz.

    Back home again. It went pretty good today. Excellent doctor and team at Des Moines. We were late by 15 minutes, but I had called them when we reached the outskirts of DM, so they did take us in after bawling us out a bit about being late. He was quick and did the deed in about 3 or 4 minutes, then checked me for more and found two more on my face. So I go back a week from today to learn if they were skin cancer or not and to take the stitches out from today. Yes, it hurt and will be hurting this next week but it is done. It will take a whole year to completely fade away, but I told them no beauty contests are planned, so that is ok with me.

    Take care everyone, and thanks for the support.

    Thanks for the update! I've been prayin' that it'd go well.
    I have a Dr in Lubbock that I see about once a year. Well the last few years the road in between has been under construction. 3 years ago it was real bad & instead o' a 2 hour drive it turned inta a 3 hour drive. We called ta let 'em know that we were gonna be late & they tried ta tell me ta reschedule. NOT! I explaned about livin' in Midland so I got ta see a PA. At least it was just a check up & everything was good.
    I sure understand about how hard it is tryin' ta git ta an apmnt at another location.

    Good news! Hope the next appt goes well.

    Stressful day all around. Had printer glitches when check writing..out of stamps and return address labels. A long wait at ever check out in town, except the milk equipment dealer. On the bright side it was 36* and I washed the car. Want to sew for a bit, but hesitant at what could go wrong. Wish me luck.

    QNS--good to hear things went well for you.

    We are making good progress in the "new clubhouse"! DD and I did the primer tonight on the two walls getting painted. I should have final coat on Sunday afternoon, if not tomorrow night...archery tournaments have started again, so it depends on how late we are tomorrow. Monday I will call the guy who is doing the carpet....hopefully he can install it late this week or early next week. After that is done I will be moving in. I will be sure to share lots of pictures when it's all set up.

    Just getting caught up on everyone's news. QNS hope all continues to go well. Carrie I'm so jealous and can't wait to see pics of your new studio. I'll show them to MrJanRN "hint, hint" LOL. OK I've had days like yours and understand your hesitation to sew--I try to avoid anything electronic or dangerous on days like that.

    Finally above freezing today and lots of sunshine. Too bad I'm stuck doing laundry but boy that sunshine sure makes for a happy mood.
