    Wow, this makes a jelly roll pan full of brownies! Let us know how they taste Bev! QNS have you made these??? Brownies are my very favorite!!! Right now I have been using the Ghirardelli Triple Chocolate Mix that I pick up at Costco. It has 6 packages in it. My camping group love them. I always add walnuts.

    I got news from DD today & even though she avoided the flooding of the San Jancinto River, the toilet ran all night long & flooded half of the upstairs & soaked the ceiling & then flooded half of the downstairs.

    So sorry, Bev. Flooding in the house is pretty bad. Hope they can get everything fixed without mold setting in.

    Well, I didn't get my blocks done today. Hubby is pretty sick and I have been hanging close to monitor the situation. We are going to see his dr. tomorrow and I wish he would put dh in the hospital. He needs to be in for a while. I feel like I can't help him at home because he won't let me. He needs to be where he can get the help he needs. So... I am hoping the dr. can help us tomorrow.

    Didn't get my quilt top quite put together, either. It's closer tho. I have been enjoying some hand embroidery and will take that with me tomorrow to do while waiting on hubby.

    OH SBG I too hope that your DH will get the help that he needs.

    My DD did hear from the insurance company. They are cutting her a check for well over $2,000. They are gonna do all the work themselves so I think/hope that it will be enough.

    Good news on the insurance check, Bev!

    Thank you for your prayers. We just got home from all the medical run-around and I am exhausted! Not so much from what we did, but from being with hubby all day. He was AWFUL. Very sick and confused. He was a MAJOR pain in the butt to just about every medical person we came in contact with. NO patience, nothing but him, him, him, as usual. I know he's not feeling well but does he have to drag everyone down with him? I heard nothing but complaints and negativity and heavy sighing all day. Like one big toddler!

    Turns out that the infected tooth he's been harboring in his mouth threw everything else in his sick, diabetic body out of whack. And by staying in bed the last 3-4 days he got badly dehydrated. The dentist started a root canal on the tooth and put him on anti-biotics. Then his dr. ordered all the labwork and got him rehydrated with a drip. Sent him home to rest and will evaluate the mental health issues in a day or so when he's feeling better.

    I can't go through too many more days like this.

    Thank Goodness for insurance!!!

    SBG, So glad to hear you now know what's wrong with your DH..let's hope he listens to the DR's & will be on the mend soon...

    I started PT yesterday, had the evaluation and will be getting hands on massaging & stretching of the ankle then some Tens stim & icing to help reduce the fluid in the tendons...This will all start tomorrow..I'm still banging my head against the wall to try & figure out what I did to create this misery..

    I sat down at the ironing board and dumped baggies of scraps then started separating all my little scraps into plastic shoe boxes, 1", 1.5", 2", 2.5" and one for all the strips any size under 3"...2 boxes are already full...I think I have enough 2.5" squares to make 2 throws with..

    I was given a pattern & 5" squares to make a toddler quilt top by Monday morning...sometimes I should keep my mouth shut and not volunteer.. I have to dig thru my bigger scraps to switch some of the colors out...most of the colors are too drab for a child's quilt, IMHO.

    See you tomorrow...Have a good nite..H.

    Honchey, playing with scraps is one of my favorite things to do. They are like treasures! But it can be quite time consuming trying to get them all used up.

    I just finished the top to a spider web quilt tonight, made from lots and lots of my scrap I Spy strips. I made a good sized throw quilt top and the volume in my scrap box didn't even seem to go down! Try, try again....

    I must be nuts... it's after 11 pm and I'm eating watermelon. Going to be up and down all night.

    You'all have been busy bees on this site.

    SGB, hope this day is better for you and Mr. SGB.

    Honchey, this day is better for you and you can get some rest.

    Second baby top is done, on to the third one. Had to pick cherries yesterday and making cherry pie next on the list. Went to my hometown and on to Cantril and the Dutchman's store was very busy today. We grabbed waht we needed and left to come home. BF is sewing while I cook.

    May everyone have a good day.

    Thanks, Bev... he is still in a confused, muddled state of mind. Don't know what happened but I hope he snaps out of it and this is not the 'new normal'.

    Its been a grand week indeed. Three baby quilts done, pictures tomorrow. One last quilt for her grandson will be picked up as she returns home tomorrow (LA is on her way home), and she will finish putting the binding on that one back at her house. She is not a quilter, but has done a wonderful job on her DGD quilts that she made here. Thanks to Ann Wheeler who did all the work with the LA sewing to get them done today.

    Life goes on with more tasks than we can do, so its one thing at a time...cherries need to be picked, gooseberries need to be picked; strawberries need picking again and the rhubarb pulled, four young roosters dressed out and the list goes on...laundry, etc. One step at a time.

    and life is more enjoyable. May the day be a good one for you.

    Sorry to hear about so many problems that the PC riders are having and I'm sending positive vibes and prayers out. I've been MIA here because I have shingles (yes, stupid nurse did not get vaccine). Thought I had a large bug bite on my forhead but when I looked in the mirror I knew exactly what it was; good thing I'm a nurse and a hypochondriac LOL. Got into dr's office first thing the next morning and started on the anti-viral meds so it's a very mild case. Bad thing is that's above my left eye so have to be really careful not to let it affect eye. So far so good. I've dealt with shingles with my patients before and remember them telling me it feels like a major case of the flu--they were right: aches, fatigue, nausea, bad headache. Can I suggest that if you're over 60 you please get the shingles vaccine---wish I would have taken my own advice!

    Ditto Jeanie's message Nina!!

    Jan, I feel so sorry for you.. I've been lucky so far not getting Shingles., both sisters have had it... I don't think I want anything else on my plate right now....PT has helped a bit..Tendon areas are sore to touch but generally getting better..Ice, foot alphabete's & circles to stretch.. and when I say ICE it means little paper cups filled with water, frozen then tear away some paper and then rub the ice on the affected area without stopping movement so the ice melts and literally almost freezing your foot to the bone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!..after you stop the blood rushes into the area flushing out all the bad stuff, I guess it makes sense in a way..
    Back to the sewing room after I get off here..I'll be playing with the Majestic Mountain squares and sort more little pieces. I'm seriously thinking about getting the Big Go...I can sit working with it cutting into strips & squares..I'm hoping it will go down in price a bit or maybe look for sale .. Have you noticed that Accuquilt won't allow a discount of more than 15% on any of their products,,even to retailers...?
    I need to get off..See ya later H.

    Sorry about the shingles, Jan. I just turned 60 and you made me want a shingles vaccine. Funny that no dr. has ever offered it to me. I did have measles and chicken pox as a kid, does that make me immune to shingles or more likely to get them?

    QNS, very pretty quilts. Wow that's a lot of work in a short period of time. Am I understanding right that your friend pieced them and you quilted them for her? That was good teamwork!

    Hubby felt better today and even said he wanted to go out to breakfast! So we went. He still has a lot of confusion, but slowly his mind seems to be clearing up.

    Honchey, I have been disappointed in the prices of the accuquilt stuff and never being able to get it on sale. I wish I had bought a different system.

    I cut and pressed, BF sewed the pieces together to suit her because it was her DGD's quilt. The LA quilting was done by Ann Wheeler who is between Queen City and Green Top on Highway 63. I sewed the binding on the back and she turned it to the front except for the purple one....I did all the binding work on that one. It was all a very good time because she made it back home safely.

    Honchey, hope you get to feeling better quickly. And JanRN, too.

    We both napped this morning and more company coming in this afternoon for a short visit. Another quilter...Ann Wheeler and her husband, Ben... Who runs the Quilt Shop and long arm business. He canns the best sauerkraut. He is also a preacher with a big sense of humor.
