    The same thing happened to me on changing type color the other day. It seems ok today!

    Hubby take the papers out to his chimmea in the back yard and just burns. We do this every year, so it never piles up. I am still in fun knit mode and here is a Zebra I just finished. I really need to clean up the quilt studio. I just can't work in this mess lol....

    He is so cute Rosy! I can do simple knitting - the hardest I have done was sox for my dad for Christmas one year when I was a teenager! I cannot crochet however, every time I try all the loops are different sizes - LOL.

    Jeanie, if you can knit socks, you can do these little animals. I used the same pattern from the Donkey as they are so alike in body anyway and this knits as one piece. The link for the pattern is in the Donkey thread. I knit at night while I am watch a movie or my favorite Hercule Poirot shows lol. I need to dig out my Miss Marple dvd's and re watch them. I think I have all of them....I like cozy mysteries with just a light murder hahahhaha

    Oh Rosie, I have been really working hard as getting all that stuff shredded. I am so sorry I haven't been here. We still have 9 boxes left! I think we are gonna have to find a secure shredding company. I am soooo tired of shredding! DH tried to burn some of it in the grill but the wind kept picking it up.

    I have been on the 'go' one place then another. And reading books. Have not finished EM for tomorrow; just have Doris done. Maybe tomorrow morning. Need to clean house, my bedroom is cluttered with papers, etc., and needs attention. Sorry, Rosie, I guess everyone is looking at the calendar and thinking of dozen of things on a list that needs to get done. I am trying to relax and enjoy the moments of no stress. Storm is predicted to hit Wednesday morning, and to be a great thunderstorm and high winds.

    Take care, everyone.

    I had guild tonight...spent the afternoon getting historian book up to date. Seven pages of pictures. Tonight's session will be many more. One of our members gave a trunk show of her quilts and quilts she and her husband have purchased. She's a prolific and talented quilter in her own right, and the additional quilts were beautiful..many appliqued and hand quilted. A night of oohs and aahs. Work tomorrow..time go to bed...

    Hi Rosy, my hubby and I are out of town with our RV group. Last Thursday through Saturday we were watching a basketball tournament that our local college was having. Needless to say, have been very busy.

    Is anyone but me doing the Bonnie Hunter Mystery this year?

    We will be here until Thursday.

    HI All--

    I try to check in daily, but don't always have a chance to reply to everything. I think of you all often and am missing being more involved with the new quilt along...but at the same time am enjoying this season of life. Hope all have a blessed day!

    Hi Everyone, Rosy, sometimes the thread just slows down, we all get busy doing stuff and sometimes it's very busy and there's lots of chatter.. we're all here ..just lurking sometimes..
    I've been busy doing a lot of PT and a lot of sorting scraps.. the weather here is very depressing, it's been raining every day with just little bits of sun here and there..
    I just wish I felt more inspired with the 30"s quilt-Along...so many wanted to do this and now we're limping along.. Who can explain it ?.. I helped several that PM'd me then they all disappeared ending up on other sites doing the quilt..I will never do that again... Oh well, lesson learned... Time for my excercises & stretching..no Bingo tonite..watching the debate instead...
    Have a good day everyone...H.

    I will watch the debate tonight too Anne. Today DH & I loaded the dining table, the leaves for it, & 6 of the 8 chairs in the PU. We then packed up the sectional, & DMIL's buffet on the trailer. I have 2 boxes packed of the stuff that was in that buffet but still have at least another one to box up. I am so tired right now. We did use the dolly & were real careful. We will take it to Brady tomarrow, but have an appointment to get the windshield fixed on my Sequoia on Friday. So this will be another fast trip!

    Anne, you mean to say that they started here to do the quilt and then went elsewhere to continue? That doesn't make a lick of sense to me, oh well.....I can only belong to one quilt board and I consider this one the best one....one knitting site and facebook.....I couldn't get much done if I belonged to many boards. I know the mood leaves here and there but why wouldn't you come back to where you started....well I enjoy this group and I will not leave you Anne Dear lol.

    Put on some music and sort you fabics and try not to get depressed with the weather. I find music always does the trick....love you..

    Sounds like fun Jeanie.. I find I don't much care for mystery quilts because I have to see what it is first lol. When I find a mystery that I think I would like I just copy the instructions and wait until it is finished to see if I want to do it lol

    I've been working on a quilt top. I promised someone at church that I'd have a quilt to bring to church soon, and I think she thinks I meant before Christmas. I don't think that's going to happen. It's a D9P with a 4-patch (set on diagonal) border. I had the 4-patches arranged nicely every third one a different color, then when I sewed on the border strips to each end I put them upside down, so the colors are not in the order I intended. But, I didn't seam rip it, just left it. The back is three pieces-- 2 strips are a sheet and the middle strip not, and I hope it doesn't cause a problem after I wash it. I decided to send it to be machine quilted. I want to get it done quicker... It's my first time ever letting someone else do the quilting... I feel half relief and half bad about that.

    After whining about my bathroom remodel for the past few months I can finally say it's finished. Well, almost. We're just waiting for the glass doors to be installed on the shower and that will be another 2 weeks away. (They couldn't measure for them until all the other tile work was finished). I love it--turned out better than I expected. Just like picking fabric for quilting I didn't trust my color choices for tile; I really lack self-confidence. It's soft grays & blues against white marble--looks so pretty. Still using mini-shower in basement but not for long.

    I haven't done any sewing since October. MrJan says I'm really cranky and need to get back in the Bat Cave. I agree. I'm planning on doing just that after I run some errands. I've probably forgotten how to thread my machine LOL.

    I've been keeping up with the posts here. Everyone is so busy but aren't we blessed that we can do all the things we do? Have a great day, ladies, and do something you love!

    Oh so cute Ok!! I love to work with the little bits of fabric...

    Work out at PT this morning was a struggle with some of the machines & leg raises....A nice hot bath will fix that..

    I'll be off with my neighbors to the monthly Ladies Lunch at a new restaurant...Today is Veterans Day..Remember to thank them for their service...Today is a go out to eat day.. We'll be going to a free for Vets dinner tonite.. I'll probably put on 5 lbs today from all the food I'll be eating...
    Glad to hear your remodel is almost complete Jan. Well, time to get ready to do something with my hair for today's outing...Have a good day all of you..H.

    Baked Grandma's Sweet Rolls today again, two pans full. These instead of Yukon Gold potato in them, had sweet potato in the dough. One batch out, one batch to go...coming out in eight minutes. First pan has chopped dates in it, the second has raisins, golden and dark in it.

    Might have company next week and bake the Sweet Rolls again. They are so light and fluffy and spiced just right. Might add frosting on top of them...fine chopped pecans are in the bottom of the pan.

    Thinking about the border on the PC and think I have a solution there...will post next week if it works.
