    Way to go, Honchey...looks so cheerful....Sponge Bob...

    Enjoy the new sofa, dublb...

    Yesterday QB and I had a good time on the local shop hop...we didn't hit all the shops..just the closer ones. We hadn't been on one for ages so was fun to see what new items the gals were bringing in. So many of our local owners are such nice everyday people....

    Now back to the work outside...playtime is over..Have a good weekend...

    Putting together plans for the June All Iowa Shop Hop, trying to decide what shops to revisit or what new ones to try.
    With 99 countries in Iowa, and 99 quilt shops to visit state wide, there is no way for me to see them all in a month.

    Posted in pictures the private showing revisited, more lovely quilts made by a friend of a friend. Never seen a "God's Eye" quilt before and cannot ID the star quilts in last of the photos. The 54-40 I can recognize since I have made several of those.

    Bad sinus attack last night; need recovery time today. You all have a good weekend.

    Great looking new sectional dublb! I love the design on your solids in the swap quilt. Great job! Can't wait to see it all put together. That mini should go over great as you teach your class.

    QNS - hope your feeling better. So much is in bloom here that our sinuses are also acting up.

    One step at a time today, no Texas two step on this day. Dublb, love your sectional and what you are going to be teaching in class. Wish we could all be there to take it. Love all your pictures. A picture is worth a 1000 words, so they say

    Gotta try this one:
    PEANUT BUTTER MICROWAVE FUDGE

    Super Quick and Easy!!!!!
    1 lb box Confectioners sugar(powdered sugar)
    2 T butter
    1/3 C milk
    1 C peanut butter
    Place sugar, butter and milk in a large mixing bowl. Cook in the microwave 2 minutes on high. Take out, beat ingredients with hand mixer until combined. Microwave 30 seconds more, then add peanut butter and mix by hand or mixer until combined. Spread in foil lined 8x8 pan. Let cool then cut and ENJOY! Everyone will LOVE this!!!!!!!

    And this too: ~ 7 UP BISCUITS ~~ INGREDIENTS:
    4 cups Bisquick
    1 cup sour cream
    1 cup 7-up
    1/2 cup melted butter
    DIRECTIONS:
    Mix Bisquick, sour cream and 7 up. Dough will be very soft - don't worry. Knead and fold dough until well mixed. Pat dough out and cut biscuits using a round biscuit / cookie cutter. Melt butter in bottom of cookie sheet pan or 9x13 casserole dish. Place biscuits on top of melted butter and bake @ 425 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until brown.

    Here is another easy one:

    Microwave Fudge

    1 lb Powdered Sugar
    1/2 cup Cocoa (powdered)
    1/4 cup milk
    1 Tbsp vanilla
    1 cube margarine/butter

    Put all ingredients in a bowl (do not mix). Cook in Microwave Oven for 1 to 1 1/2 minutes. Remove and stir. Add nuts and spread in 8 X 8 buttered pan. Refrigerate for 45 minutes.

    The sectional fits your LR perfectly, dublb. What sweet miniature. I can see it made of scraps....

    Okay you got me thinking I need to make some fudge......

    Looks kind a rainy week ahead of us ...onions, kale, broccoli, lettuce, peas all planted. Have a goodnight...oh waiting to hear from DS...they went to hospital about an hour ago.

    Thank You Bev for showing us the great photos of your home & family..Sofa looks perfect where it is...It must be a very large room to accommodate a large piece like that..

    I'm off to the clubhouse for the stitchers meeting...I started another scrappy project and now I have to hunt for colors in my limited stash...I might be better off putting it aside until I get back home in NJ....I have been very productive the last couple of weeks..I've also been sewing little bits of leftover fabric and ill probable be put in a jar like OK does until I have enough to do something with..I'm putting my second mystery aside as my time is starting to wind down and I don't want to leave anything behind....
    Time to leave..Catch you guys later..H.

    Anyone needing small scraps? I have a box that is collecting all the little pieces and a couple of tubs with scraps from finished quilts...one was the I SPY project. Enough for more than one person. Cleaning house for three days for when daughter and family arrive on the scene.

    Thanks Anne. Yes it is a large room, & I have felt that it needed a sectional the whole time we have been here. This is what I paid for it with. LOL We cut it open last fall & cashed 'em all in. $850. I have been lookin' for a used one ever since but found this one at Big Lots instead.

    It has been so long since I have been on QB. I think of a lot of you often. I am so appreciative of my contact with you. I treasure the blocks I have received from you all. Sorry that I have been AWOL. Sometimes life just doesn't co - operate. I cannot possibly catch up with what has been going on with this thread, but I hope to jump back in again soon.

    nina Sue, are you done Irish Mist and / or Tennessee Waltz yet. I'm not!!

    Janie, what a treat to hear from you. Hope you have been able to get some sewing in while away.

    Janie W, I have been thinking of you and very happy to see your message. Irish Mist is in a box that shall not see daylight here again. TW is still a work in progress...I set together two rows, than ripped them apart.... Have finished a California Gold, and finishing the traditional nine patch blue top. I have to close down the quilting room to the end of the week for daughter and family's arrival. Son in law uses that has his 'office' while here. Cleaning house today.

    Dublb, what a savings account in a five gallon water jug....I have saved FIL's small jars of change as a memory of him. And I do love your sectional....and your large room.

    Ok, what wonderful news of a new DGD. A miracle, a new baby for the Spring. Glad to hear Mother and child are doing fine. Have you made her a new quilt yet?

    Janie!!! I am so glad ta see ya!
    OK, There ain't nothin' better'n DGK's!

    Today & yesterday DH & I have been workin' in the yard. I also bought some more seeds. Most o' 'em I will grow 'em under the grow light but have planted some o' 'em out back. Taday we also moved the tomatoes, that are in the pots, off o' the patio & against the back fence where they can get some more sun. The others are already in the sun as they were planted in the raised beds.
    Yesterday DH & I fixed the chain link fence that is on top o' the tile block fence. One place was missin' a support & another place the support had been bent in a 45* angle. We took it off & replaced both o' 'em. We then got a bunch o' the dead branches off o' it.

    Hi all,
    Wonderful news, OK. So exciting! How many grands do you have now? Name?
    Today was glorious, spent it outside, walking, gardening, sitting, reading. We have had an early spring, much to my delight.
    I have been working on my FMQ. I made a gazillion preemie quilts for practise, took a couple of Craftsy lessons, watched them over and over and , then got brave and tried some ideas on a lap sized Bento Box quilt. I am almost done. It is so dense, stiff as aboard, a fortune in thread, but I am having so much fun! I will try to post pictures tomorrow.

    QNS, I am going to sandwich Irish Mist this weekend and slowly FMQ it this summer. I will hope you resurrect yours and give it a shot. It was really challenging, but maybe someday you will give it a go? Or not. 😊 I will help if I can, if you want. TW is going to get finished being pieced this fall as we will not be travelling.

    Dublb, we have a money jar too but can never agree when it is the right time to give it a smack!

    Good to be back!

    XOXO

    Janie, So good to hear from you and to know that all is going well...You've been very busy to say the least..

    The "Unforgettable Stars" quilt is at the LA quilter.. I chose a very pretty pantograph of small to med stars in a swirl of ribbons.. not very noticeable so much on the front but very visual on the back...Now all I have to do is the binding.. I won't be here to sew it on.. someone else in the group will have to pick up the slack.. I have to pick up my sewing room and start straightening it out for packing...Yeah, Just one week left until the return home..
    Congratulations OK You're a grandma again
    Time for a nap, I've been up since 6 this a.m. Later, H

    Whew! I had forgotten how active a six almost seven DGS really is. And he has really grown a lot this past year. I did find the right toy to entertain him...a remote controlled Jeep...and let him put the batteries into it. Yes, I have more batteries if he wears out the ones he put into the Jeep tonight.

    SIL informed me that he was not too busy tomorrow afternoon to do the BBQ of the ribs and chicken, so I will do the vegetables inside while the guys BBQ outside. He does the job so well I will not disagree with him doing it. The chicken and rib leftovers will feed us on Friday. Melon, strawberries, and bananas will be the main dessert this week. But I did promise SIL a fresh rhubarb strawberry pie.

    Neighbor came over for her gooseberries; a green one, a red one and a pink one. DH will plant the others during the week.. . and the peach trees as well. Everyone take care, and have a good end of the week and weekend.
