    Fantastic work, Anael, on the sheets and caps; love it. OksewGlad had 3 beautiful quilts she displayed. And DD also had a good story to tell and great sewing work to show us.

    I called Creekside Quilting and no news there...the quilter got very sick at the end of December, so I suspect it may be awhile yet before I see my FWQ. They will call me.

    Dh birthday so will go bake a cake and try to look cheerful; sinuses have my head roaring today. No sewing today. Snow forecast to move in tomorrow, so that might be a better sewing day. Everyone take care in the winter storm watch.

    Received my first BB in the mail yesterday. Beautiful design, colors and block. Wow. Will show photo of it later. So impressive with hand work and all. Perfect block.

    DDamsel ... What a good woman you are! Just so long as DH remembers the RIGHT things!!! Great start with your Sulky and an inspiration to me (not that I need to start MORE projects, do I?) and hopefully others will join us too? Was there anything in the instructions that will be confusing to me?

    Questions for DDamsel and ALL ....Not being an applique person, I have questions galore about it. So please bear with me. I want to try to do it using the method I've seen on teh QB where you put some sort of a fusable on the back, and then it acts like your template when you are doing the needle turn to the back. What kind/type of fusable should I buy?

    QNSue ... we'll all stop by later for some tea and a piece of that delicious cake!
    Happy Birthday MrQNSue!!!! First BB? I'm guessing from western CAnada?

    Good news: Jeanie is finishing up the quilting on the FWSQ; bad news is that I cannot get to Des Moines until after the first of the month, and that will depend upon the weather. OOOOOOOOOOOOh the waiting is getting to me, I wanna see it!!

    Yes, QuiltE, you are right as usual. Birthday cake is Duncan Hines Fudge Cake, with added Chocolate Syrup and Chocolate mini morsels and Chocolate frosting; I will serve everyone in the virtual RV a piece of it...and the deep fried shrimp and salad.

    QuiltE

    I KNEW I could tempt you

    WHAT? me read instructions??? how do I know if they are confusing LOL I DID struggle with the metric measurements, I measured everything TWICE with a school ruler and THEN cut. I was soooo nervous to get it wrong!

    I have tried ALOT of methods for applique, and practiced ALOT! the thing I like about this particular pattern for beginners is that the pieces are all lopsided, it adds to the CHARM of the finished project... and mistakes are less likely to show

    I believe that I have tried the fusible in the past. I think it is as good a method as any!

    Anael--Oh such lovely embroidery work! Looks like you've covered all sizes with the hats to keep those little heads warm.
    Keep plugging GGal in no time you will be dancing with QNS and your finished quilts. Patience QNS I'm sure the FWS will be beautiful. Oh I can't wait for supper and that fantastic chocolate cake. BD greetings to DH. Such pretties sent from Alberta. Nice job Janie.
    DD you are braver than I. I only drive truck and trailer if I am only going a straight line. It's a "chore" I never learned--maybe on purpose. Some days wished I'd never learned to milk cows but must blame my dad for that one. Love the dressmaker's form.
    Applique--not if I can help it so not much help for you QE.
    Didn't feel well this morning and slept til noon--yikes. Now way behind on daily duties. Emily and I sewed yesterday and I started cutting more pieces for the GPA shirts quilts (GSQ's).
    Milk check arrived; guess I'm paying bills today.

    Wow, lots of chatter today! I am mailing my BB today Carrie!

    Anael, those sheets and hats are so cute. I bet that that smallest one is still too big for those babies! From the last photo, with the hat on Bram's head, those are the usual baby hats they put on them. And it is soooo big for him (so cute).

    Sewing my Easy Street blocks together to make rows. Hope to have that finished today, then sew the rows together and get this thing finished.

    QuiltE - no help from me on applique! Ugh! My arthritis makes it so hard to sew by hand any more. I cannot close my right hand entirely, it is most annoying! Does anyone know of anything that will reduce the swelling in these old fingers?

    Thank you all for your compliments! We think the smallest hat is too small but we will see tomorrow. The hat he's wearing in the picture is too big indeed but it looks cute!
    Bram is doing well today, he peed quiet a lot and lost fluid so he can breath easier. And he had a full diaper so his belly is soft again and he's more comfortable. Isa was sleeping a lot but when Mick was there she was awake, waving her tiny hands. She heard Mick and started to move around with her arms so she did recognize his voice.

    Tomorrow I will go with my DS and DDIL and we will bring Julian home with us.

    I didn't have time to make my daily block today, I had to embroider and sew the sheets. Tomorrow I won't have time either, so I will make some extra on Thursday.

    QNS, you have received a lovely block! And I want a piece of your cake! Is there still some left?

    Good News from a lotta us. Especially Anael!
    Here's mine.
    DH just bought me a 2007 Toytoa Sequoa!!! It feels just like my Tundra but has seatin' for 6 - 8 people. (8 very skinny people) I git ta pick it up tanight. The only thing wrong w/it is that it is another white one. I'm tired o' white.

    Ggal, you're right about the PC being the quilt that will never end. I worked today so still haven't quite finished; I'm thisclose--so anxious. I didn't use my Sweet 16 on this quilt--too nervous but will use it to finish up Rosie quilt. Are you doing QAYG? You're really close--we can do it!! Did you get that freezing rain/ice storm? We had that yesterday and today it's 64*; snow coming this week-end.

    Anael, love the pic of Bram with the pacifier--it looks so big. Isn't it amazing how they respond to certain voices that they recognize? Sounds like things are good right now.

    DD, those are so cute. Is that the BOM that has a sewing machine block? I down loaded just that block but probably won't do it. I rank applique right up there with y-seams (and colonoscopies).

    QNS-can't wait to see your FWS. I'm so impatient I'd want it NOW. I'll bring some Camomile tea to the virtual RV to help us wait patiently. I want some cake, too!!

    QE, re applique see above. No way! At least Jeanie has an excuse not to do it; I just don't enjoy it. I did the applique block for PC and my friend Dglvr (here on QB) laughed at it!!

    OK those quilts were lovely and I'm impressed with the amount of money you raised-congrats! Hope you feel better soon.

    Yes, there is CAKE left...its chocolate overboard!! And Chocolate Ice Cream from Schwan's that delivers to our home and advertises on QB board. Love that company!! Chicken noodle soup is on the burner in the virtual RV.

    Plans are to work on PC blocks tomorrow; just about 1/3 done with putting strips around each block...soooooo slow going. Cleaned up on desk area today; it was an 'all aboard!' time, with too much stacking up on the desk. Recipes, quilt patterns, and important paper work with newspapers, magazines and advertisements. Felt buried in paper work.

    Anael....your news is with little ones but mine is about my oldest son. He's career Army and has been deployed to the Middle East four times and I just got word tonight that he's now back home in S. Carolina with his family. I'm so happy.
    Another row done on PC, QAUG, and starting to think about borders. I will be so glad to get this one finished! I get bored with it after so long and have to do something else.
    DD...good for you and the unstuck truck.
    so nice that we have all gathered in the RV to enjoy everything chocolate. I can only imagine what that would be like IRL!

    To really enjoy the food in reality, you will have to plan a vacation this way...and find the welcome mat is out at all times. Guest room available or plenty of space to park your RV. Washer and dryer is available in the house.

    Dublb, enjoy the new car...let the dgc do a wash job when it gets dirty!!

    We would love to drive our RV to the East Coast some time, I have never been further East than Iowa! I want to see all the Smithsonian's in DC, plus scads of other things. So if I'm traveling that direction, you may be taken up on that offer to park our RV for a day at your place QNS!!!

    Anael the news keeps getting better regarding Bram and Isa, each day is a reason to celebrate.

    DD well done on the truck manouvres, just let the females get the job done

    QNS how did you know Chocolate Cake is my favourite, is there any left??

    GGal how wonderful to have your DS home safe and sound, I can only imagine how worrying it must be for you when he is deployed.

    Dublb congrats on the new car, mmmmm white not a good color for showing the dirt but maybe the Gkids would earn pocket money washing it

    QuiltE, DS can't fix the computer even with the home cooked meal dangled before him. He said I cook for him anyway

    The good news is that the computer is fixable, the bad news is that I have to drop it off this afternoon, well DS has to cause I can't lift it and the computer fixit lady will probably have it for 2 to 3 days. I know I know it is only a little repair job but she said she has a lot of work at the moment and it will be placed in line with all the other repairs. I asked her if she sold Valium as I might need some if I have to go 3 days without my computer... so anywhooo
    I will be off the chatter for a couple of days -------unless------------DS can hook up the computer cable to my laptop, now there's a thought, mmmmmmmmm what's his favourite meal ????????????
    If you don't hear from me you know that it didn't work

    Anael I will keep the little ones in my prayers, DH arrived home today and enquired how they were going.

    DDamsel ... one and the same! I am SO NOT a pattern follower! As for enticing and tempting me ... if you recall, I was the one that posted it. However, having you start, only makes me more determined to do it. Competitive much? ha! I like the idea of the fusible as I think it'd help me keep the shape with the least effort. I don't knwo much about fusibles, so, do I use the single fusible? or the double? or what?

    OKSGlad ... LilOKSGlad would have been disappointed to have to go to school today! The milk cheque does not last long when it arrives, does it ... remember those days all too well! Good for you for the sleep in, and hope it helped you get rested up and feeling a little more perky!

    CarrieM ... rest up and get feeling better!

    QNSue ... Hip hip hooray for your BBs arriving!

    JeanieG ... I'm not much help for your hands, though I do believe there's some sort of a cream/salve to rub on them to help. Check with your drugstore for what they suggest. And Missy, if you head eastward, you'd better take a swing up into Ontari-ari-ari-o, for a visit too!

    Anael ... Oh fun! A fashion show in the NICU! Joy and happiness, and a little sadness as you bring Julian home.

    DublB .. new vehicles are always fun ... even if they are white!

    GGal ... such wonderful knew for you to know your DS is back home again! And more good news that you are that much closer with your PC .... hopefully you'll let us see a picture when you get there. And you know we can all help you choose your borders too!

    QNSue .. I was drooling over your cake and then you mentioned chocolate ice cream to add to it all!

    MiraB ... we'll all be waiting patiently ... and hoping that DS came over to get you hooked up! He should know you will NEED it to keep your sanity. Though with MrMiraB home, perhaps the time will fly and you won;t miss the computer ............. but we'll be missing youuuuuuuu!

    Got Mother's Delight finished tonight.

    Ladies, I'm asking for your help.
    I need flannel fabrics and the only flannels they sell here are solid colours, not very nice colours either. I want to make preemie smocks (if that's the right word?) (here's where I found the pattern: www.everythingyourmamamade.com)and I would love to have nice flannels for my tiny grandkids. I saw JoAnn has a lot but I can't order there, they don't ship international I could order at FabrickShack but online I have to buy 1/2 yard and that's way to much of the same fabric! So could you help me out?

    Anael--I work at a LQS and can get as little as 1/8yd (4-1/2" cuts of fabric) and would love to pick out some flannels to send to you with your BBs in the next couple weeks. We have lots and lots of soft baby flannels in many prints. You tell me how much of each fabric you need and how many you would like and we can go from there (if anyone else would like to donate to these, we can work that out too).

    Oh Carrie, that's great! Thanks so very much! I decreased the pattern (still too big though) and the height of the pattern is 8", so 8.5" would be enough. When I'm laying the pattern out on the fabric I would need 20" width. I hope this makes sense! I'm not familiar with your system so I don't know exactly how much I need.

    GGal, how wonderful your son is coming home!

    9" is a 1/4yd by ~42"(WOF)...so you could line with the same fabric or make reversible ones...alternating fabrics. I work Friday (weather permitting...was supposed to work Monday, but roads were too icy, then today, but now too snowy, so rescheduled again...)

    School time....

    Question for all: would fleece work as soft flannel? On sale it is $5.00 a yard...I have white and pink leftover fabric that is extra wide...about 58 inches wide, very soft and warm.

    Also need a pattern for a bag that fits onto a walker....for AIL; that is Mary's next request for Ruth.

    Oh the fabric has to be washed quite hot (140F) so I don't know if fleece would work.
