    Anael ... what a special visit and great news that you can make some hats and blankets for them! Definitely, keep that phone with you. How cute that Mick found toys for his little brother and sister! What a great plan you have to make those daily blocks and what memories to stitch into them.

    JanRN ... glad that's over with. On the upside, I bet you;re glad it happened on the weekend and you could get it all fixed and dealt with before the showings! I have visions of you sewing til it was done tonight!

    JanRN you will be the first to finish your quilt. I am sending mine to a longarmer in February, I have spoken to her and sent her photos and we have had lots of discussions on what I want. She just asked if I could send it in February so she would get her December quilts finished and get over the holidays, which was fine by me. I would love it to be finished by July when my club has its show and tell...

    Anael yes they are tiny but they are proving every day that they are fighters, take lots of photos. Every night I say a prayer for them and your family to stay strong

    Thanks for the updates, Anael. It brings tears to your eyes even when they are doing okay. Enjoy your nappy, Bram!

    Just saw this recipe and thought of QNSue's quest to diminish her egg stash!
    Looks like an easy way to serve up breakfast ......... or breakfast for dinner.

    Last night a good start on the BB's. Today's personal sewing interrupted by a no school day so Emily came down with Dad for a sewing morning with Gram. We are working on another GPA's shirts quilt for DH. This one is a strippy 6 " square setting. She's so fun to listen to as she's sewing away. Shows she has more confidence in her sewing.
    I got an email from my guild friend with pics for the Fund Raiser. The Bubblegum Stars was the top seller--good because it was the most work with 25 2 1/4" 9P's. I did PP the star points.Name:  Butterfly Delight.jpg

    Thanks, QuiltE, but I liked your recipe the best!! Yes, those eggs are comin' on like no tomorrow! The hens are so happy, they gather and sing to dh every time he goes into the chicken yard! Happy Hens. Cannot believe how 16 to 18 eggs daily add up so quickly.

    Delivered the 'throws' to dh AIL this morning and she was very pleased. Took pictures that I will post later on. Sent the two boxes out...one to CarrieM and other to OksewGlad...should arrive on Wednesday to both sites.

    RED LETTER DAY went into pharmacy for medicine and it turned out, they OWED me money...wondering if I should buy a lottery ticket????To recover a lost camera from June 2005, to delivery of the AIL throws, and get more than $20. back from the pharmacy...has never happened to me before!! WOW!!. What a week!! Everyone. lets gather in the virtual RV and celebrate! I am buying pie for everyone...you bring your choice of coffee or tea or whatever!!

    Oksewglad, beautiful quilts!

    Mirabelle, my DDIL wanted to take pictures today but her camera died the moment she took the first picture She wasn't pleased!
    Tomorrow I will finish the sheets and take them to my DDIL. She can wash them with all the other stuff and take them with her to hospital. I would behappy to wash them but I have no idea what's right and what's wrong so I leave that to her (or my DS ). The hospital is very strickt about what is allowed.
    It's 11.00 pm here, I'm getting ready to go to bed and read a little. First I have to feed my killer kitty!
    Latest update on Bram and Isa: they're doing ok.
    CU all tomorrow!
    Eat, quilt, sleep, repeat

    I'm arriving with two teas ready for all to celebrate ... Bear Trap and Coconut Chai Rooibos!

    QNSue ... Yeehaw!!! Congratulations on your BB mailing! and it'd seem that either a lottery ticket or more fabric would be the order of the day!

    OKSGlad ... I bet there's more fabric on its way to you. What a great way to spend a snow day, sitting and sewing with LilOKSG!! This will be a favourite for her, to be making a quilt for her own DGF. With all her chatting, she's definitely a quilter. Have you learned anything surprising in those chats? Beautiful quilts and I bet they were highlights of the auction, that were fought over!

    MiraB ... so did you get a fancy schmancy new camera?

    Anael ... yea for you and all the new baby things! Don't feel badly about leaving the washing to your DDIL/DS. They will appreciate and ENJOY the chore beyond belief to be touching and working with the little things that Bram and Isa will use. Sweet Dreams!

    Don't know about fancy schmancy but it is purple. Bought a Fujifilm JZ100. Have just started charging the battery and tried to load the CD onto the computer but it won't read the CD.
    I was trying to download an embroidery CD yesterday and it wouldn't read either so maybe I have to get the computer fixed Just tried to ring them but the office is unattended.

    So nothing more to do at the moment but turn the aircon on in the sewing room and get some more blocks made.

    MiraB ... you already know I am no help to your techno questions! Better invite your DS for supper, and while he's there you can say ... OBTW .....

    OKSGlad ... Yes, indeed ... it is a great quilt!

    Two Union Jacks have now been made ... slightly different patterns and one will make it into the PC!

    Mirabelle, you can try and update the drivers of your player. Look for the serial number, do a google search and see if there's an update. Sometimes that helps.

    Thanks everyone, just spoke to DS and he said I need a new CD rom reader or something like that, will try again tomorrow to see if I can get it fixed. OMG hope she doesn't want my computer for a few days, she can have it for a few hours, I am going through withdrawals already just thinking about it....

    Putting in a new CD Rom player takes only a few minutes. Once you've done it yourself you wonder why you never tried that before Maybe your DS could show you how to? It really is easy!

    Anael...those hats and sheets are so cute. They will be the talk of the nursery!
    QNS...nice feeling to have the BBs mailed. Are the feet staying warm?
    Jan...more really cold weather coming by the weekend they say. Might want to turn the heat up a little so you don't have another plumbing disaster at your Mother's house. I'm glad it cleaned up as good as it did. Are you using your new machine on the PC quilt?
    OK...that is a beautiful FWS quilt. I almost forgot that I have one waiting for the last few blocks.
    Mirabelle...we have weather in the 60's today with thunder storms which is supposed to bring about 2 inches of rain. Nothing like what you got but there will still be flooding in places.
    Sunday I finished piecing my Storm at Sea wall hanging for my M&M class. So many pieces and points. That pattern has been on my bucket list since I first saw it but this small one has satisfied that desire. Yesterday I got a new machine....vaccumning that it. What my DH had were very old and one did die a couple if weeks ago. I'm thrilled that finally vaccumning actually accomlishes something. I did get one more row of PC blocks joined. Only 4 more rows. This is like a never ending quilt to me since I'm actually quilting it and it is taking soooo long!

    MiraB ... psssst offer DS some of Momma's home cooking in exchange!

    Anael ... Your Grands those darlings will be the envy of all!!! How precious and sweet

    GGal ... now don't get too excited about your new vacuum. Instead let your DH have the experience and you can listen to it eating up all the stuff! Just stick with your PC. I'm looking forward to seeing your [email protected], And then for you to finish FWS too! Congratulations on all!!!!!!!!!
