    Two blocks a week, on the last two if I remember correctly, Carrie. I have not seen the new book yet to know how many blocks are in it, although Honchey said it was colorful and no white backgrounds for this one.

    I am back home & #1DSon cooked for me last night. It was awesome! Salmon on the grill!
    Last night (It is mornin' after all) I ended up takin' my DM ta the ER for her asthma. She is highly allergic ta Giddings TX. She started coughin' on Thurs night & by th'sevenin' she was in bad shape. 6 hours later, w/a breathin' treatment & a steroid in her IV, she is so muuuuuuuuch better. I hope that I can wind down soon & head ta bed.

    Bless you, Dublb, for caring for your DM and taking her to get proper treatment. Every time I go outside this time of year, I pay for it...sinus swells up giving me a head full of stuff. Bridal wreath will really shut off my breathing.

    I hope Ok you got the small package.

    I laid by UFO quilt tops out on the guest bed last evening to show PattyW what I was working on, finishing up the borders. She was so impressed it encouraged me to continue on them. California Gold is done; Nine patch needs one more blue border to frame the quilt and it is done. Black, green trellis of lilacs is next to border, then finish Grandmothers Garden 3-D quilt....and on to the next one...and the next one, and the next one....with luck I can finish this next year the UFOs...if I limit what I take on as new projects.

    May all of you have a good weekend.

    Thanks for the block size and number. I did look and found that after I asked, but didn't get a chance to post again.

    I don't know that I will be able to keep up with 2/wk schedule, but I would do my best. I know I won't be making all the blocks since I just need an extra wide twin sized quilt to go on the day bed in my craft room, so should still be able to finish up with everyone else.

    I am working as fast as I can, Honchey...two done, working on third quilt to finish borders. DS has stepped up to the 'plate' and is going to pay for the LA work on his quilt. I have have told all the relation and friends that I cannot afford the LA fee, they have to come up with the $$$ if they want a quilt...its a bargain at that price!

    I showed the finished tops last night to Patty, then realized at least two were not where I thought they were...so will have to dig deeper for them...And there were still three more in the stages of WIP. Grandmother's Garden, Tennessee Waltz, and Crossed Stars. Three new projects I picked up in January...I have not let myself peak at them yet. Not sure about doing the next Hird one, although I do want to follow everyone's progress.

    Three flower bed will require some TLC from me also, weeding the beds, etc. Bleeding Hearts are blooming to the excess, looking very nice. One step at a time.

    I honestly feel that we don't have to do 2 a week.. I don't want to do 2 a week. I want to enjoy the journey.

    The book with the exception of getting it from Laurie won't be released until the middle of June to the public..so I don't see us starting the quiltalong until the middle or end of July, maybe not until August.. Plenty of time to gather whatever we need.. Any of you not wanting to do this for whatever reason ....it's OKAY!!! just follow along with what the rest of us will be doing..
    I happen to like the color-play Laurie used in the blocks..Nice and bright Looking forward to getting the book..We still have about 3 months of waiting...rats!!!

    I am sure there will be others who decide to join us too once a new thread is posted....at least I would think so. Maybe 4-6 blocks/month would be a better goal? August sounds like a great start time...that gives us time to collect fabrics...and for those of us paper piecing, time to print/cut out papers.

    Plus some good time to finish current quilts! Between now and then I would say there are probably 5 quilts I want to finish. DD's quilt is moving along...7 more blocks yesterday, just 7 more and then putting blocks in rows and borders.

    That makes it sound better, Honchey. We will see what August brings. I am happy we get to see the book by mid June or before so I can purchase fabric for it on the All Iowas Quilt Shop Hop in June...I will get out at least two days during the month to shop in Iowa. Can we share thoughts by private emails if some of us get the book early? Ms. Hird indicated she is shipping books to us in mid-May.

    Good luck to you Carrie in finishing DD quilt...its one stitch at a time. Sometimes progress flies; other times its seems fo move very slowly. I have one side of border to sew on my Lilac quilt, and I want to finish by Friday morning to take it to the LA quilter. It feels soooo good to be able to see and finish a quilt! You cannot imagine after the last two years of not seeing, how great it really is to be able to see and sew and finish quilts!

    DDs Crazy Quilt Blocks

    Here are all 48 blocks on my display wall...the ones I did today are just pinned on since they won't "stick" with paper on them. I will have to reorganize them a bit to mix up fabrics, but hope to get the top together this week...at least blocks, borders will probably take longer. I should have time Wednesday morning and all day Thursday.

    Bev, as with the last 2 we've done..or almost done you do as many as you like.. you don't even have to do 99 of them...I know that Jan doesn't like "Y" seams so she may not be doing 99 either

    Today I went ta my LQS & dropped a bundle o' cash. Almost all o' my allowance for the next 2 weeks. I just have a li'le bit left, so will have ta be verrrry careful w/it. I am so excited about it though. I bought some black ta make a border for an orange & grey 4" "Jelly Roll Race quilt", then a grey backin' w/white & yellow triangles for it.
    I then bought some fabric ta make another 4" "Jelly Roll Race" quilt for my other DGS. Cars & trucks.
    Then I bought 2 solid black charm packs for another project.

    It is a nice job, Honchey, where you can enjoy yourself and 'play' with sewing machines, meet wonderful people who love to sew. And it gives you $$$ to spend at your favorite QS!

    It rained here all night, so puddles of water is standing about; ducks love the weather! Onward into the day to see what all it brings with it. May it be a good one for you.

    I've missed out on lots of chatter...everyone getting goals accomplished and new ones made.
    Carrie..DD will enjoy her quilt..the colors reinforce the modern abstract look.
    We'll see what dublb comes up with her allowance buster fabric.
    And Honchey hopes to get her Mystery done and plays at work..we should all be so lucky....
    Yes, Nina She..how fortunate to be able to get back to sewing..many of us take our eyesight for granted..hope the email went through yesterday..Thanks so much.
    I'm trying to get psyched up to clean...being outdoors has left my house in a sorry state..clothes get washed and dried but not folded...dishwasher cleaned but not emptied...oh and cook pans...not to mention unswept floors...you are hearing all my vices when it comes to being a housewife in spring
    But.....several beds are weed free for the moment...darn dandelions are out of the asparagus bed with a few spears showing..I should be able to pick the biggest spears this year as it's year three of this new bed..waiting to plant warm weather crops and annual flowers..frost could still happen in my neck of the woods. Have some trimming to do on the trailing roses I planted last spring. Dug up a couple dozen tulips with their buds nipped off by deer....where are the dogs.....now to find a place to put them closer to the house. They were in the bed at end of the lane near our farm sign. The bluebells are in full bloom..Should dig up some more to put under the tree south of the house...that area is my focus this year as I want to plant native grasses further down the slope..it's been a combination of orchard grass (which clumps) and weeds. The slope is too steep and rocky to mow and visible from the road...was a heifers pasture before we built the house 8 years ago.
    Weather channel radar shows rain moving across the state all day..no excuse to clean now....I could sew...no must clean. I can't tomorrow. Emily and I are taking a shopping trip for fabric..Gram is going to oversee a dress making project out of knit fabric...we head to the nearest JoAnn's and Hancock's to see what they have..both have 40% sales this week... Have a good one....

    I'm still in Phoenix enjoying the grandkids. I'm sewing the blocks together on Mystery Quilt 9 from here on the board. I like how it looks, thinking about making it bigger.

    We are going to Tucson tomorrow to visit a friend, then leave here on Saturday to head for our RV campout with our group back in California, near San Diego.

    Weather was really hot, 103* last week, but has cooled off into the 80's this week. Be glad to get home to cooler weather. It is often foggy in the mornings, sometimes all day in May and June where I live.

    I'm not sure where taday went. LOL I did regular things around the house & then suddenly it was time ta go & git my DGN. After we did his work & his DM picked him up I finished my current book. I"ll start another tamarrow as I sit in the car waitin' ta pick him up. I have ta get there early & get a good parkin' place or by the time I walk up there ta get him they have taken him ta the office. (That's what happens when ya are "late" pickin' him up.) Sigh there is just a very small window that I can pick him up. Anyway I usually have about 20 min.s ta read.

    Our children watched us read and started reading at an early age; had wonderful vocabularies through out their schooling years. Would not challenge them in any word games. Nice to have a few minutes in the day to relax, Dublb, and read or enjoy the scenery. Always found it interesting to watch parents and kids of all ages. . . and reflect on our own memories. Who is your favorite author?

    Trying to 'downsize' my things; Ronda says she will take my embroidery storage bins and projects not yet begun for her 'craft' room to do for me. Have not touched them in three years or more, so she will meet me half way between us and move totes and bins and things over to her car. Too much to ship to her. One step at a time. If she wants a quilt made from the cross stitch embroidery quilt blocks, I will set them together for her. Lots to do today, I will not be bored any time today...but then I haven't been bored too many days of my life. May the day be a good one for you.

    Just got caught up on all of yinz--what a busy group. Aren't we blessed to be able to do so much? It's been busy here but so much fun. DGD is a senior in high school, graduating in a few weeks. We've been to her final school play, she's been in school plays since 9th grade. She's great on stage, great voice and certainly not shy but she CANNOT sing LOL. So this year in Beauty & the Beast she played a fork LOL--the play was so great and the kids all so talented. Her Prom was last Friday. She wore the dress MrJanRN bought her on their trip to China picked out by his former co-workers wives. It was a changseom (can't spell it), satin embroidered with high neckline, form fitting knee length with a slit--gorgeous, and she wasn't half naked like some of the other prom goers. Wow--what are they feeding girls these days?? I didn't have cleavage until I was pregnant!!

    No sewing here for the past week or so, hope to get to the Bat Cave for awhile. Altho the bright sunshine is telling me I should clean my windows!

    You're not the only one that need their windows cleaned...The leaves on the tree outside my kitchen window haven't come out yet and it is very sunny & bright..too much so now I can see how spotted they are..Yuk.

    I am a little sore today..fibro is acting up and I was lifting trade in machines to be tested to see if they work..some real oldies... 2 out of 4 don't work...I might be interested in one of them. maybe.. price has to be right.. Why do I have to get another machine is beyond me...four more to check out today...My boss was very happy to see me..Yeah! she had my day planned for me..work, work, work .
    I forgot my purple fabric so I couldn't cut the borders for my mystery....I did manage to sew some blades from an old project I started. it's a 12 blade kaleidoscope Dresden. I have a couple of the plates done.. novelty fabric (colored cats on red background) have to make yo yo's for the centers. I'll do them in green..It will be a very colorful top!!!
    Oh well, time for my second cup of coffee and then unpack some of my stuff from my trip home then it will be time to leave for work..
    Have a good day all. H.

    Oh windows....walked into the house and saw such dirty windows looking out over the dining room table.....maybe for another day.

    How lucky to have an imported silk prom dress...kudos to GpaJanRN for enlisting a feminine angle to the selection.....

    Our shopping trip was successful...Emily found the fabric she liked right away...she has gotten to be such a grown up...was fun to spend the afternoon with just her..got her home in time for her to get ready for her concert...she sang a duet part...she was kind of excited as she sang it solo at practice and surprised everyone with her booming voice with many compliments afterwards. Her school is big on building self-esteem...not giving it, but building it. Found 2 pairs of Naturalizer shoes on sale...my favorite brand of shoes..they fit and they last, so will be a while before I have to go shoe shopping...yeah I hate to shop...except for fabric.

    Stopped at farm fleet...dropped $$ as I purchased farm fly control products as well as some Corrid (for candidiasis treatment and control). Then had to stock up on nuts...much cheaper than grocery store and will last until Christmas...I let the kids snack on almonds and walnuts..

    Good for you, QNS, to recognize what one can accomplish and then find a good home for those you would rather not do. A feeling of good when some of the clutter gets reduced...I need to do the same...I cleaned out some used clothes I was keeping for upcycling...Let someone else do it.....

    Glad you can enjoy sewing time on your RV trip, Jeanie..share your mystery quilt when you are done...please...

    Hope the body is doing better, Honchey. Does weather changes affect the fibromyalgia?

    Trying to decide what to do today...think I will go dig some blue bells to transplant...best time to do it as the foliage dies back and you can't see where they are a month from now....off I go.....have a good one...
