    I do not either...fleece is often used in exercise...jogging suits...so one would think it might work. AIL is dh Aunt In Law; Ruth married dh' Uncle Donald...he is deceased. She is the last living member of the that generation.

    When we had rabbits and chickens in the middle and late 70s, he would take time out of his busy farm schedule to grind and mix feed for our livestock, which dh's Dad, Neil, refused to do. Anything that dh's aunt-in-law needs or wants, I will try and do for her. Dh's Uncle Donald ask dh's Father, Neil, to look after Ruth at his death. So Neil did, and he ask my dh to look after her, after his death, so dh feels responsible to carry on 'cause of his Father's request, too. Dh childhood home was neighbor's to his Uncle's home. The brothers were partners in their farming of 1400 crop land and raising 400 head of Black Angus cattle.

    Plants cannot always read a calendar, so dh's Christmas Cactus seems to be one that cannot 'cause it bloomed this morning...Name:  ChristmasCatus.JPG

    Carrie...I'll send $$$$ for Bam and Isa. I've been wanting to do something concrete for Anael and this works! I'll be out and about tomorrow and will get it in the mail. Please pm me your snail mail address. I think I deleted that mail.
    QNS...love the cactus bloom. Thanks for sharing?

    Carrie, I'd like to add to the donations to send to Anael. I don't have flannel so I'll send you a check to help with cost/postage. Aren't we all sort of like grandma's to Bram & Isa? Thank you for offering to do this! Please stay safe-I saw the weather for your area (it's coming my way tomorrow).
    QNS, love that throw and AIL looks so comfy. Beautiful bloom on DH's cactus.

    Are any of yinz familiar with Punxatawney Phil? He's a local legend. He's a ground hog that comes out of his hole on Feb. 2 and if he sees his shadow we get 6 more weeks of winter. I've had enough winter. If he sees his shadow, I'm making groundhog stew for the virtual RV!!!

    OOOooooh so much GOOD news!!! poor Mirabelle... maybe you can get more sewing done?

    QuiltE, YES this is me TAUNTING you! I want to PLAY! PLEASE?????

    I think when I used fusible before, one side was sticky and the other side was iron on. it was fine with the sticky, but a nightmare to iron. I could not get it to STAY PUT! I dont think I even finished that project yet..... if there is a BETTER product out there, I might try it again.

    Great pictures, Anael. Yes, we all feel like PC grandparents and will help out with the flannel cloth. Yes, I will help make ground hog stew, JanRN, although we will be very unpopular, 'cause that ground hog brings in $$$$$ to your economy of the state.

    Darling babies, yummy cake and beautiful flowers!

    Dublb--if you have flannel and want to send that instead of $$, that is up to you.

    I am finally in the clubhouse this afternoon....the quilting on Rosie is done, just have binding left. We have gotten at least 6 inches of snow in the last 12hrs and it is still coming down. It was over 50* yesterday and isn't suppose to get to 10* tomorrow...big change...getting colder by the hour today!

    back to work...

    Oh dear, even virtual I know I'm gaining weight

    Bev, beautiful! Cacti don't bloom like that here, it's too cold. I've seen them blooming in France.

    I have some pictures of what I made for the twins today.

    Oh joyful news of returning son; flowers; cake; beautiful babies and parents; and Oma making bits of clothes. What wonderful friends we have to share the grand news.
    Snow here--about 5"; but wind is to pick up and it's light fairyfine flakes which means drifting everywhere. Em coming later to sew--she was barn girl this morning.
    Maybe I can have BB's done and in the mail by Friday. Friday and Saturday another trip to NW Iowa.

    Ggal, you must be so relieved and happy to have your son home. Thank you and him for his service.

    Bev, congrats on the new SUV. You'll have lots of fun. Did you have to show those beautiful cacti when our weather here really sucks LOL!!!!

    Anael, beautiful family. They are going to be the best dressed babes in the nursery-great job.

    Dubib...what beautiful flowers. I've never seen prickly pear in bloom before.
    Anael...thanks for the pictures. Things are looking good in the nursery. How thankful we are!
    QNS...glad there are no calories in your goodies and I'm sure it must have been QuiltE that snitched the cake. None of us would ever have done that.
    Jan...I don't think Phil would taste very good but if anyone could make it tasty, leave it to QNS!
    i quilted another row of PC blocks...only one more to go! A change of pace, I started sewing rows of blocks together. That feels REALLY good. Friday, I'm going to Shipshewana for a Fons & Porter event but there are many wonderful LQSs in the area so this will be a FART. I've been through my limited stash and have decided I'll look for a border print for my PC. we haven't gotten any snow yet but are far enough south that we're only supposed to get a dusting overnight.

    Helllooooooooooooooo ... yup it was I ... only because I was led astray by DDamsel!
    Darned good too ... though those Cinnamon Rolls are really calling to me!

    Count me in on the flannelette escapade!! I think it's better that we let CarrieM do a major shop and coordinate all together.

    CarrieM ... be sure to include the postage in your tally of what we owe you! Likewise for the postage of the BBs back to us. Hope you are feeling better ... must have been with the Rosie completion. It's stunning!

    Anael .. what a sweet pic with Mom, Dad and Bram. Love Isa's pic with the stuffy and I bet Mick is pretty proud of that one! Great productivity today with your sewing. The blue check .... is that one of those pillow thingy's to hold their head/neck in place? or what? Can you tell that I have no clue what baby things are, let alone what they are called? Re flannelette be sure you get extra as remember, it could shrink incredibly. So get extra, and then the leftovers can be used for other projects another time. Better make sure that you do "twin" matchy/coordinating things! Nothing sweeter. BTW ... first thing I spotted was the cow on the blanket.

    Flannelette vs. fleece ... the fleece would handle the hot washing, though it does not breathe, and while the babies need to be warm, they might sweat it out too much. The cotton would breathe. Although DDamsel is our resident baby blanket/quilt maker and has it all down pat!

    QNSue ... beautiful Christmas Cactus, just missed MrQNSue's birthday. My Grandfather always had them bloom at Christmas and again in July. How good of you to be so kind and thoughtful to AIL. She looks quite comfy there with your quilt

    JanRN ... And if you're going to talk about Punxsutawney Phil, then I'll have to demand equal time for our own active rodent ... Wiarton Willie!!! And then there's Balzac Billie in JanieW's part of the country!

    One of the church's near here has a Groundhog Stew supper ... a sell out every year. Of course, only a faux as they use ground beef!

    DublB ... your other cacti are incredible!

    DDamsel ... tempt me on the sewing ... AND the cake! You're such a baaaaaaaaad one!! I wonder if I leave it long enough, if the February one will come and will be easier (and smaller) than the dressmaker's dummy? So what escapades did you and DH get up to, today?

    Anael I wanted ta let ya know what I know about flannel v. fleece. At one point #1 DSon thought he wanted ta be a fireman & took a 3 month course ta be one. He said that babies need ta wrapped well & only in 100% natural fibers. If there is a fire fleece & other man made fabrics will melt to the skin o' the babies. Older children & adults can git those fabrics off if there is a fire. Flannel is 100% cotton.

    Thanks, Dublb, for that information about fleece and flannel. I will remember that. Anael has given me one address for a bag for the walker, any one else have any ideas?

    That ground hog will see his shadow on the Feb. 2nd, JanRN, 'cause they drag him out to see his public fans....and make their money for the town's economy with everyone there to see him.

    Carrie, we all are thinking you will lead on the flannel gathering for the preemies and ship some to Anael. Maybe Anael has other ideas for flannel also or other needs we PC 'grandparents" can do for the preemies... and let us know on the $$ needed by private mail? Your Rosie quilt is quite nice, isn't it a relief to get one project done??

    Yep, QuiltE, wish you had said 'hello' and come on back to sample the cinnamon rolls....dh really does not need all that sugar being diabetic II. Carrie, I do not cater away from home, sorry. You all will have to come here, the welcome mat is out....once the snow clears you might be able to see it. Thursday night the temps are really dipping down...one source says eleven below zero. I hope not.

    Carrie...your Rosie quilt looks great. Good job. Can you explain how you do SITD zigzag? Do you do it around all of the pieces in the blocks?
