    I had a good day taday. Taday the dishwasher repairman came & Maytag/Whirlpool did fork the $ ta pay for it. I guess DH & I won't post about how bad it was all over the internet. Allright, I would just post it here but DH does FB & is a member o' 3 or 4 forums. Anyway, DH & I have decided ta just keep washin' by hand most o' the time & use it for special occasions. It might actually last for a bit.

    After I did some things around the house DH asked me ta come outside w/him as he replaced the heater core on the 1966 Ford PU. He had it on the tail gate so I was actually able ta help him. I used ta crawl under the hood & help him but haven't in at least 4 years. (It hurts too much.) I guess he has missed me & was thrilled that I went out & spent some time w/him.

    DGN came taday & after he did his math & spellin' I had him read ta himself. It was a book that he was readin' before we started doin the workbook called Mini Mysteries. The Mysteries have become over his head so I went back ta the books. Well he was on page 57 & in 15 min.s said that he finished the 124 page book. NOT! First I have 2 sm note books & told him ta list all the characters & who they are in one o' the notebooks. (He didn't git very far w/that & will do more tamarrow.) After he left I read the first chapter myself & have come up w/10 questions for him ta answer. I will do this for the rest o' the book as I am gonna make him reread it.

    While he did his math I started drawin' the grids for 7 quilt blocks on my tear away stabilizer. I thought I'd like ta see how it does w/the grid method. I have all the lines goin' one way on all 7. Tamarrow I will do the lines goin' the other way.

    Sorry to tell you this...second day of short sleeve weather!!!

    Going to the post office today then to Hobby Lobby for ?????

    Went to a thrift store this a.m. and picked up a quilting magazine for .35 cents and it has a mini quilt pattern in it..7x9" and it has 9 blocks and borders in it...Ha Ha , I can just see me with my fat fingers doing it up.

    I'm going to have to move some stuff around in my sewing area and have decided to put a small craft table in the closet and just run an extension cord in there to run the two little machines (serger & hemming)..The hemming is a new to me Janome Coverpro 900CPX..Picked it up on sewitsforsale. on Yahoo Groups.. I have so many pants and shirt sleeves that need hemming and it's too much trouble for me to do it with the sewing machine..I needed a new toy I hope I have success with it..
    The thrift shop chest of drawers that is in the guest room has to be moved to the area where the craft table was..I have more storage that way and then the wicker furniture will be moved into the guest bedroom... I'm tired just thinking about it..but it needs to be done..
    Jan, sending you a PM... Later guys, H.

    Dublb, glad you had good luck with the Maytag repairmen, cause I did not on our Maytag refrigerator. Sounds like you are on top of things there.

    OK, you have a another wonderful mini quilt all done. How full are the jars now, did you use them all?


    Honchey, it takes time and patience to get things moved in my house...if dh can argue about it he will.

    Its a true green day here, with $$$$ tax refund going into the checking account to reduce our pay back on the Geo
    Thermal system. And the remainder will be given back to us next tax year.Mo does not rebate like Iowa does, so no $$$ there.

    JanRN, did you ever finish the door decor with the large P for pirates?

    How many got the news from Laura Aaron Hind about her book coming out on an earlier market than what she can mail out?

    Yep, got Laurie's email. She says they will ship mid-May, if they come from her. She said she is not getting as many as she expected.

    I'm over the moon....Honchey's finding mini quilt patterns to sew....Jan's sewing 4" blocks...ladies in my guild are sewing smaller blocks.....I guess I'm a nutty influence...

    Thanks for the kind words...I have 80+ 9P's to use...not only that I have lots of 1" strings to use up....

    dublb, I am so amazed at the patience and energy you put into helping that little boy. You remind me of my country school teacher...She was a fantastic teacher for all kids no matter what their capabilities were.

    What a joy to share your love of quilting with your DD, Carrie...

    QNS..is it spring yet...you'll be planting garden soon. Heard and saw a robin yesterday....

    Sounds like you are settling in, Honchey...Enjoy the weather...was 70 here yesterday..did get a walk in but spent the better part of my day in the office. Took Sam to play group this am, got groceries, and ran errands for church fundraiser, I'm co chair of. A busy two weeks ahead of me so could be quiet from here.

    Ok, dh has his first tomato ripening on the vine ......in his 'garden' in his bedroom. Four more tomatoes to ripen on the vine there. Massive group of sweet potatoes that need to go as soon as possible into the ground. Easter marks the turning point here, but subject to frost up until second week of May.. . . or later. It is freezing weather tonight, so different than the 83 yesterday....that's normal this time of year. Chickens are eating every green leaf of grass almost before to spouts up in the poultry yard.. . we are hoping they are not killing out patches of grass for the summer.

    I did get a little work done in the QR. Paperwork and baking to do in the morning.

    Sue, it sounds like ya had a great time! I too went ta my LQS taday & bought just a couple o' panels. Then DH took me ta Hunan Gardens for lunch (he used his allowance. ) A small Chinese restaurant. They have a great buffet but are never crowded. When we got there we were the only ones there. We had a very nice quiet lunch. We then bought some pottin' soil so as ta plant some tomatoes in pots. O' course I picked up my DGN from school & we read.

    Thanks, JeanieG. I have yet to discover the vagabond star. Shared the Magazine Mary Jane with DH who did read the Sprout article in it.

    Thanks , Dublb. And it is nice to hear your progress with DGS in reading. Wish many a child I tried to get to read had you as a Grandmother. If they can read, they can be in any work force they want to be in life.

    Making the rest of the half triangle squares for the Stars Crossed. then finish the border on the California Gold Poppy quilt....and on to finishing other borders on three quilts. Have a good sew sew day.

    Well, OK, I hope you're feeling better. This is the first day since Tuesday that I've been upright for longer than an hour. Spent the last 3 days sleeping and running to the bathroom with a stomach bug-UGH!!

    No sewing til late yesterday but I think I'm going to spend this morning ripping out what I did. I was so tired that if I made a mistake I thought "Oh well, that's good enough" but it's definitely not. I thought I'd have my QOTS mini block quilt done and I need to finish my Pirates banner for my door (opening day is April 6!!).

    Happy first day of Spring!!!! As I watch the snow come down!!!! Mother Nature has such a sense of humor-not! It started a freezing rain, salt truck just went by, now it's big flakes sticking on the grass. Shouldn't last--it's supposed to be 50* tomorrow.

    Have a good one ladies and hope no one else gets this darn bug.

    Sorry Ok and JanRN that the darn flu bug hit both of you. At least, it sounds like you are on mend now, with your messages on QB here.

    Its is good to read your latest, too, Honchey. I have tried to goggle Vagabond Star with no luck. Sigh.

    Lots of new fabric in QR so better spend major time in there today and make some progress. Squaring up HST for the stars in star crossed, then can put it all together and finish the borders on CA gold. Have a good one today.

    JeanieG made that banana bread recipe again yesterday and it was very good again.

    Gosh I have been very busy. Day before yesterday (cause it's tamarrow already) I took a class at my LQS ta make the cutest li'le coin purse on my embroidery machine. It was done all in the hoop! The embroidery machine also made the mesh that is on the outside. Gosh it was so very cute! Then while I was there the teacher & I discussed me teachin a class for a doll quilt that I made. Well the top was done. As the embroidery class was such a short class I had extra time so I came home & quilted it. It now needs ta be bound. They will have it hung up for about 6 weeks & I'll teach the class in May.
    Taday I had the fabric for the bindin' in the washer so I played w/some blocks that I am doin' w/the grid method. It took me most o' what li'le spare time I had ta play w/those. I'll bind the DQ tamarrow.
    I went ta bed & went right ta sleep but woke a bit ago. Gosh I hate it when I do that. I had some WOW fabric that I was soakin' in coffee ta stain it. So I heat set it by ironin' it. I'll wash it tamarrow. Well that is if #2DSon isn't usin' the washer. He does his laundry on the weekends.

    What fun you had, Bev, but you should be tired--the time stamp on your post says 3:30am--what in the world? I've had that happen--you fall asleep and wake up wide awake only a few hours later. I do what you did--get up and do something (altho I probably wouldn't iron--would iron my fingers LOL). Take it easy today. How fun it will be to teach your class. Can you post a pic of your doll quilt?

    Today is our 45th wedding anniversary--wow, and they said it wouldn't last LOL. No celebrating, in fact MrJanRn and son are going to an all-day Golf Expo (I guess that's a guy's equivalent to our Quilting Expo). I'll have the house to myself so I can get caught up on all I didn't get done this past week. Just thought of something--if I've been married 45 years, my ironing board is 45 years old! Do people still get ironing boards as wedding gifts?

    Happy Anniversary Jan & MrJan !! I wish I still had the ironing board from way back when...so much easier to open & close...
    Bev, how nice is that to be asked to teach something you created..

    I have to take a photo of the mess I made getting everything out of the closet...I have to get it done by Tuesday..that's when company will be here for a 5 day stay...

    Made a pineapple coconut cake yesterday and it turned out delicious but it looks ugly..never made this before..I'm not a baker..brought it to the community bingo last nite..about half was eaten so I brought the rest back home. they don't know what they're missing I needed something to lift the rectangular top off and the spatulas didn't work so I used my 12" square to slide between the layer to lift it off.. the cake was too warm and the filling kinda melted into the cake..you need a spoon to eat it Oh well, a lesson learned..let it really cool of before frosting it!!!

    Have a good day all..I'll post a few pics later...H.

    Happy Anniversary JanRN and Mr. JanRN....celebrate it when you can. or whatever your choice is for a celebration.

    Jan, I sent an email of a page from E. Burns; you may already know this, but thought it might help. I often set that page in front of me to follow the directions.

    Progress in QR, forward on the 25 stars that I have increased to 32 stars. 76 by 76 inches is tooo small, so I increased it by two rows. Just love making those stars! (Not so much!) Love the results in the quilt pattern. Debating the size of California Gold Poppies....like a 92ish by 108ish size the best.

    Jan - Congratulations to you and Mr. JanRN! Wow 45 years is a long time isn't it! Amazing how time flys.

    Dublb - How cool that they want you to teach a class. That should be fun.

    QNS - You are wasting no time getting all your quilting project worked on!
