    Susan, I'm praying God heals Jessica! Please keep us updated of any changes.

    Happy Mother's Day to all of you from me! I had a wonderful Mother's Day gift already. Last night while I was sewing, my daughter and son in law pulled up! They came from Memphis for a surprise Mother's Day visit. I'm so honored because these kids work such long hours, they almost never can come for a weekend. Even when I go there to visit they are busy, busy, busy.... But they came for Mother's Day! How sweet.

    Happy Mother's Day to all! And if we have anyone not a mother, a Happy Day to you too. Anyway, we all have mothers, or had them if they are gone, and it's a good day to remember what is special about our own mothers. If I can be as patient as mine was, it would be wonderful. I miss her.

    I've got the border sewn on the kit I bought from Craftsy, so now the top is done. It was called 'Hedge Maze,' and the kit provided more fabric than the pattern called for. I decided to make the quilt bigger using the scraps, and I also added a bit of fabric from my stash. The kit made a 63" quilt, and I made mine about 84". I made the whole thing in about 3 weeks. The pieces were quite large-- well! especially compared to our little FWS pieces!

    That's beautiful, Givio! Mine still is waiting for that plaid border to go on. I hadn't thought about using the scraps to enlarge the quilt. You have given me ideas! Yours looks great with the piano key border.

    Happy Mother's Day to all and to all daughters as well! May it be a special day for all.

    Givio, what a wonderful finish on your quilt; love those colors, I just want to stop and cuddle up it and pet the fabric!

    MY DM is in the hospital. I have been spending a lotta time w/her. Taking turns w/my DSis &other family members. I do have another DSis that has only been there for a couple of hours the first day. Sigh! She has been there since Fri.

    PS I love the quilt givo! It just shines!

    Not quilt the Mother's Day you wanted Bev, but at least you are there for her. Hope you mom improves quickly.

    Today my daughter is here and we planned out and started an adorable baby quilt for her friend's new baby. Friend lives in England and daughter is soon going to visit her, so we had to get this quilt done quick! We got the hard part of it done today... all the planning and making the big applique for the center. I will finish it up this week and send it to my daughter to take on her trip. It's so cute. I'll show you all when it's done.

    So we were talking about quilting with our daughters, remember? And for this Mother's Day I got to quilt with my daughter! She's not generally interested until she has a need or a project she wants to get made... then she's interested! I'm still doing all the sewing, but at least this time she sat and watched the way I did everything and maybe now she sees it's not so hard and will try on her own some time. I hope so. She's very creative and I think it will give her a lot of pleasure.

    So how was your Mother's Day???

    Mine was quiet and peaceful. I read a couple of books. Cooked my Beef vegetable soup and loved it. Keyboard quit working and daughter took my call Sunday morning and was very hhhelpful and got it working again. . . by her remote access.

    I might get back into the quilt room tomorrow. All the flowers I bought have been planted. Now to weed another flower bed as soon as I can...it is overdue to be done... LOL!

    I've wondered about Sheri's Berries. I hear them advertised a lot. It's good to know they actually are good! Might try some instead of flowers next time I need to send a gift.

    Today I went in and had the first of my tests done at the hospital. They drew out half my blood (felt like!), and did an ultrasound. The little tech girl poked and prodded all around my liver and gall bladder til I thought she was going to break a rib. After all the pictures she took, I sure hope they can tell something. I am so tired... have been sleeping every night and also every afternoon.

    After the tests I was already halfway to Vicksburg, so I went ahead and drove out there to my favorite quilt shop, StichnFrame. I bought a sack full of fabrics. After Paducah, I must have lost my mind to do that. It sure was fun tho. Some were clearance priced down to $2.99! And I got some more Kaffe Fassett to do a border and enlarge a quilt I got in a kit.

    I forgot to say I worked yesterday and discovered my boss bought an ironing board that lowers enough for me to sit & press and that's what I did yesterday..I starched & pressed a bunch of fabric, about thirty 1/4 yards..fixed the handle on the new vacuum that fell off and the bottom part took off..It was so funny...

    OK, are you still working part time at the quilt shop?

    Sewbizgirl, looking forward to seeing your border. :-) $2.99 a yard? That's hard to pass up! That's a fat quarter price these days... I'm glad you got the tests out of the way.

    The Kaffe Fassett border wasn't one of the $2.99 fabrics... But I needed it! I still owe my son and daughter in law their "wedding quilt" and they have been married a year now. Every time I think I am making a quilt they will love, I chicken out. I guess I just don't know my new daughter in law well enough yet to know what kind of quilt she would love. But I got my daughter's opinion on the Kaffe Fassett quilt and she thinks they would love it. So I just need to make it a bit bigger and get it done for them. I may even pay one of my talented long armer friends to do something special with the quilting on it.

    I didn't realize my ironing board could lower like that until one day I walked into the room and there was my son in law sitting down and ironing his shirts with the table lowered! Ha.

    Love the stories about Mother's Day.

    So glad Sewbizgirl you found delight in quilt shopping after your tests. The worst is the waiting; hoping they find a good solution to all the tests they took.

    I have been trying to give DS another quilt, but unhappy with all my 'starts'... seem to drag along until I drop it for the next 'idea'...that might 'fit' him better. And then I think about his 18 or 19 cats and dogs in their home in Houston... and I think I chicken out on finishing a quilt and sending it to him...with that picture of cats and dogs lying on the quilt. I love cats and dogs, but not that many inside the home...thanks but no thanks. Then again I think, I promised him one... oh, dear. Sigh. Give and forget; what they do, they do.... yeah. He knows its bad 'cause he does not want me knocking at his door. Maybe I should.....

    Have a good day! Celebrate the day, it will not come again in our lifetime.

    QNS, make the quilt! If he wants one it's up to him to take care of it. Boy, I'd hate to have his veterinary bills! Heartworm and flea meds for that bunch would break the bank. Let alone food....

    My doggie sleeps on my bed with me, so I can't have a pretty quilt on my bed. I have an old funky bedspread on top that can catch the dog hair and be washed.

    You're right... waiting on test results is the worst. I have a colonoscopy on Friday so tomorrow is that 'wonderful' day of colon prep!

    Tough night last night...had cramps around one knee, the opposite ankle, and calves of both legs...swallowed 2t of mustard in the middle of the night...usually does the trick...now lathered in Theragesic to relieve the residual soreness...hope it's a limited time occurrence.
    Yes Honchey, M&T's....it's the only time I get to sew...I take a pass farming those days. I've been sewing table runners and then making kits for them this week. Seasonal type with applique...using machine blanket stitch. Playgroup kids come to visit the farm tomorrow...have lawn to mow...later

    Sewbizgirl, I have had soooo many of those. . , I have lost count! All discomfort goes away within a couple of days. Both parents died of colon cancer. Brother and sisters of Father's also died of colon cancer. So have five of Aunt Lelia's 13 children. I took out cancer insurance while I was teaching and still carry it. Of the 13 cousins, just two were older than I am, so age does not seem to matter. It may or may not kill me, might be an accident in traffic or who knows???? so I refuse to be gloom about it. One step at a time or one day at a time. I choose to be upbeat and happy for today.

    Find the problem, study what to do for the problem, then decide what to do with problem.

    Good luck with your tests, SBG--I equate y-seams with a colonoscopy: a necessary evil. I'm still waiting for test results from some liver studies, too. My mother and 2 uncles died from non-alcoholic liver disease (ages 90, 77, & 76) so my doc ran some tests on me.

    Givio, I missed your quilt--love it and all the colors you used.

    QNS, you do so much you make me tired!! I've been cramming in some sewing before remodel project begins (who knows when?????) and I've encountered the pattern from hell! It's a pp wedding ring mini wall hanging. The pp sections are easy, just remember color placement. But putting it together requires an engineering degree!

    OK, have you tried putting a bar of soap (any kind) under your bottom sheet down by your feet? Don't know why but it does help with leg and calf pain. My doc is a great believer in tried & true old wives' tales.

    Ditto that! Thanks for your wise words.

    Jan, hope your liver tests turn out well. I really don't mind the colonoscopy, it's the prep I hate. I can barely get all that mess down. And last time the "Go Lightly" drove my blood pressure up so high they told me never to take it again. So this time I'm doing a molotov cocktail of several laxatives plus gatorade! YUCK.

    Gladdie, I have heard the soap under the bed remedy for leg cramps too. I have no idea how that can help, but several people have told me it does.

    Hey y'all... I figured out that if I do 4 of the older blocks in the FW30's book every week, I will be all caught up to you by the time we finish the book. I'm up to the "C" blocks now.

    Hey Guys! My DM is still in the hospital. She is doing so much better but they aren't letting her come home as of yet. The DR said that all her numbers are good except her kidney #s. They are inching up a tiny bit each day. He wants her to drink a lot today.
