    Carrie, those are going to be beautiful quilts. I still have a few of the 50 Fab star blocks left over, probably enough for a small throw. Hmm, I thought I finished all my UFO's, guess not. Now to find them--I cleaned the Bat Cave while remodeling and can't find anything I put away.

    Working on table runners for Juvenile Diabetes auction. Will hopefully get some pics later--we finally figured out the new camera.

    Have a great day, ladies, stay warm and do something you love!

    I have finally decided on a color for the sashing/side triangles of my Pony Club quilt..It's going to be pale gray mottled or marbled/texured...Everytime I go to the printer I see the blocks stacked on the side and I should/need to get them done..We had so much fun and I have such fond memories of that time..Now to hunt for the fabric..

    Looks like the East Coast will be snowed in by Sunday night..My area is expected to get 24" plus.. Say it ain't so I love the snow but that's a bit much..

    I went w/DH to the secure paper shredding place this morning. We had 12 boxes full. They weighed 'em & they almost weighed 400lbs.
    DM's eye dr appmnt was at 1 so I took her. She is doing great after having that surgery yesterday. They decided to do the other eye on the 9th of Feb.
    Once I got home I did a few things around here then at about 3:00 I got out the painting cloths & got the wall painted. I will be cutting in again tomarrow after I take #1DSis to have a place taken off her eye brow in the morning.

    I just love hearing about all the quilts that ya'll are finishing up right now. Sigh, I can't sew much right now.

    When do our kids quit giving us gray hair??? A month or so ago I was worried about my son when he was in Brussels during the terrorist attacks; thank God he got home safely. Now he's in Germany and is scheduled to fly into Washington, DC, on Friday night--during a blizzard!!! Talked to him this morning and he's trying to change flight so they land in Chicago. I'm off to the drug store for more hair dye!!!

    I love your solution to kids giving us gray hair.....maybe I need to try it...but then the Grands would confuse me with my DSis who hardly has a gray hair in her head...

    Nice table runners...sure they will be appreciated...is this for RedGarnet's FR?

    Well that's a weight off your shoulders, Bev....

    Stay inside Anne...wonder how much DSis in WVa will be getting....

    Good news, DS#1 does not need rotor cuff surgery...

    Back to bookwork....

    OK, you have good news to share! Great news on your DS shoulder!

    Jan, beautiful table runners. I know they will appreciate your donation. Hope your DS makes it home safely.

    I almost feel guilty being in Phoenix's 70* weather. We head for sunny California (I hope) on Saturday. Will miss my little ones here.

    I took DSis to have her li'le spot taken off of her forehead. I was shocked at how much they had to take! At first it was as big as a dime but the first biopsy came back w/ bad margins so they had to take more out. It then got as big as a quarter! I was so relieved when they said that that biopsy was clear! It took 'em forever to close it up. Alright, not really forever, just an hour & a half. She needed to have a place on her nose biopsied also, but decided to do that next week when she has the stitches removed. She & I both took long naps when we came home. As tired as I was I know she was so much worse!

    Yes, Dublb, it does knock a person down for a bit. My nose did on the one side... I slept a bit in the car coming back that day... I remember how it knocked me off my feet for awhile. Not an experience I want to repeat for awhile.

    I did enjoy last Wednesday, although the experience was a lot to take 'in' in one day. Had to take a day to rest. My distant kinfolk are wanting more genealogy help, so other than the FW, I think I am going back to spend some time on genealogy and house cleaning. This house has to get 'straightened' up before March 24th when we hold an open house for our 50th Wedding Anniversary. Unknown factor on who will come, if anyone. But we two are celebrating that once in a lifetime experience. That I am sure of. If the children come home, if any relative or friend shows up to celebrate with us, that is a bonus. One day at a time....one hour at a time... it too shall pass.

    Dh is feeling better. That is the good news of the day. JanRN, you have been very quiet since you seen the Dr last Tuesday.... remember we are here for you, too. Have a good day everyone.

    Oh my Nina, 50 yrs..Wow!

    Bev, you've been very busy these last couple of weeks. Take time for you!

    I'm sure Jan is snuggled in the Bat Cave..She's worried about her DS comiing home from Europe to this horrible weather..

    The sun is shining right now but not for long..Just one last trip to the grocers then I'm tucked in for the duration of the storm..We're right in the middle of it....The wind will be a big factor..don't want to lose electric...

    Ok, love , love, love your minis's... I have lots of bits & pieces and it takes me forever to clean up the scraps from their fuzzy threads..I have threads all over the place...

    Have a good day all of you! H.

    I can't see my front steps...When it snows it's very bright in the house at night and if I wake up for a nature call I can't get back to sleep..I went to bed at 10 last night and woke up at 3:30 and it's now 6 am and I'm tired...the snow plows have been by several times .. we're destined to get 18-24 " before it's all said & done..who knows maybe more..We are considered to be in the I-95 corridor..

    I want to make some Ranger cookies today...I bought golden raisins yesterday and can't believe how $$ they are.
    I have every kind of bread they make & 2 gallons of milk...don't laugh...every time I came home from the store yesterday I purchased something I thought I forgot...It's a good thing..DS came by last night to "pick" up some supplies for the weekend.. He works for the Postal Service and won't be able to go in to work today...We are in a state of emergency...
    I guess I'll be doing some sewing today amongst some other things...Making Pasta fazoli today for dinner..I make it with sausage...see y'all late..I'm rambling so it's time to leave..

    Sit tight, Honchey, this to shall pass. I'd rather have alll that snow as to have sleet and ice. A bonus day for you and your dh to have a 'date' day inside or just sit back and relax and sew forth. This day will not come again, so enjoy every minute doing your thing you want too do. Your DS is smart and knows where he can get 'supplies' for the weekend home bound situation.

    I could not breathe, so I was up at six thirty. I can worry about things awake and in my sleep, too, I think. Maybe solutions will be clearer today than yesterday; there is Hope. A hot cup of tea to start off the day and see what it brings. May it be a good one for you.

    My son was able to rebook his flight from Germany from DC (which is closed) to Chicago. After many hours of delays he made it home late last night, thank God. Only a few gray hairs this time for momma so I'll save the hair dye for the next episode.

    Glad to hear from you Anne. I couldn't sleep last night either so I watched the Weather Channel all night--wow you are getting slammed. We have a total of 1 inch of snow! My sister lives 25 miles south of me and they have 8" and my friend lives in California, PA and has over 20 inches. What a weird and interesting storm system (for a weather junkie like me). Glad you're stocked up (altho you didn't mention wine LOL). MrJan was a little disappointed in the lack of snow--he has a snow blower and wants to use it. LOL men and their toys!

    Ladies, please stay safe and warm, Spring training starts in 4 weeks so there is hope. Do something for yourself today.

    Looks like a sunny day here..called DSis in WVa. They were stocking up too..her DS had a fender bender in DC the night before..NC crew got sleet and snow....timing of precipitation made all the difference...it wasn't rain/freezing rain creating power outages. They are housebound with 3 little ones wondering why they wanted to become parents!.....

    Maybe a nap is in your schedule today, Honchey....

    Glad world traveler has made it home, Jan..

    Spending the day in the office yet again..

    Hope everyone has had a safe day.

    I did cut out Iris for FW today; happy with it. Will cut the two for next Tuesday tomorrow. Have cut out two Shack n Whack quilts...almost all of the pieces...sit aside fabric to do the floral Triple Irish Chain, a Christmas quilt. When I am not busy with other things, I will work on them. Found an Amish Lady who hand quilts, so will take a couple to her to finish up for me in the new month. Garage doors on one side was fixed today, other door will be fixed next Saturday.

    I fixed breakfast, lunch and supper today. Have a happy dh tonight. Chicken for lunch tomorrow, Waffles for breakfast; supper is left overs or fix it ourselves. Love to sit back and relax on sundays. May it be a good, safe one for you and your families.

We watched movies all day yesterday...didn't cook, had leftovers instead...Maybe I'll clean out the fridge today....

    Was wondering how you were faring, Anne..did you buy enough perishables to get you through?

    DSis got 40+"..after a while the height markers are completely covered...her DH was organizing the spices...he's a voracious reader...I would've thought that he'd just keep reading...lol

    No. Several have died from shoveling the snow. He needs to call for a snow blower and have it delivered and tested out in a demo. Then send it back. Beats a heart affack. LOL.


    Finished FW Iris block. Now to sew dh knit cuff on his sweats. Almost forgotten how... I think I remember.

    I vote "NO" your DH should not continue. It will melt!!!

    I have a question about thread. A friend of mine gave me 6 spools of Sulky embroidery thread. I used it to quilt a table runner and it worked fine. Started a second table runner and half way through the thread started shredding. I changed my needle, did fine for awhile then again started shredding. Maybe shredding is the wrong term; it looks like it's unwinding into 2 ply thin threads. What do you think is the problem? Can I use embroidery thread to quilt? I don't understand why half the spool worked then the other half isn't. Help me out please!

    We got home from Phoenix today. Weather was nice and came home to 70* weather. Hope it lasts!

    Wow, Anne you are getting hit really hard by that snowstorm.

    Jan, don't have a clue on the thread? So glad your son made it home okay!

    QNS - I have not sewn anything with knit cuffs in probably 40 years? I think you stretch them as you are sewing them on, but don't remember too much. That was such a rage back in the early 70's - was it called Stretch and sew???

    Maybe it's your needle...what kind of needle did you replace?..did you retread after you changed the needle? just did a Google search and found this good reference on needles...enjoy

    Did a Wally World run this afternoon....we drink lots of hot chocolate this time of year and they sell the bigger round canister...also like to buy Nido..also in a canister..it's a Nestle's dry whole milk sold in the Mexican foods section of my Wmart...now why would a dairy farmer buy dry milk? I mix it 1:1 with flour and use it to thicken soups and hot dishes without adding salt..I don't buy condensed cream of xxx soup because of salt and sugar additions.

    Long story short I was out of both...

    Yesterday I finished a PP'd Valentine small wall hanging..Will take a photo and share...goes to school FR this Saturday...want to get one more done...May have a stay at home day tomorrow...could have freezing rain..
