    Jan - both my hubby and I got the Shingles Vaccine after we turned 65, when Medicare paid for it. You can just walk into a pharmacy and get the shot. I had an aunt that got Shingles and it was a very painful process for her. I knew I did not want it!

    QNS - your friends quilts turned out nicely. How fun you have someone to sew with.

    It has been a very dreary day here - foggy and overcast all day. I do much better when I wake up to sunshine! This is typical June weather in Southern Califiornia. We call it "June Gloom". I just like to curl up with a book on these days!

    I just realized that I haven't posted here in a few days. I guess I have just been lurking. LOL
    I got a cut on my hand when we got here to Brady on Fri. How it happened is hard to explain. Suffice it to say when your 100 lb dog wets in the dinning room take off your lanyard ,w/embroidery scissors, before ya try to drag her back in there for some discipline. OH & don't pick up the newspaper that ya are gonna shake at her for the above discipline till ya get into the dinning room. Sigh she is house broken when we got her & in all of the 6 years we have had her she has never wet in the house. I did sulk a bit on Friday as I thought that I couldn't do any thing. Yesterday I decided that I could do some stuff but not others. ( I can't wash dishes. ) I do have 2 butterfly's on the 1/2" cut & it is doing better.

    Good morning everyone... been to Sunday School and back now. Bev, sorry about the scissor mishap. We have a big dog too and a couple of times he has given me a black eye while we were playing. He has a very hard head! It was hard to explain to friends that NO, hubby does not beat me-- it was the dog! LOL.

    Well, it's about time to start tackling those hard blocks we have this week. I have been working on my embroidery blocks for my embroidery quilt-- stitched two last night! Eight down, 12 to go.

    On today's plate is a quilt top that I must get sandwiched and start quilting for my son's anniversary present. Actually it's a very late wedding gift! Gotta have that done this week so I can bring it to them next weekend. I have no clue how to quilt it, at this point.

    Hope you all have a nice Sunday.

    I have one more long row to sew on my Bonnie Hunter Allietare (last year's mystery quilt) and it will be a flimsy. This is the slowest I have been in getting one put together. I now have 3 of her mystery quilts to quilt and 1 in progress. I have used the FW 30's quilt as a leader/ender project while I've been putting together Allietare.

    I've been watching the horrific news coming out on the Florida shootings. OMG this is so awful. My prayers are with those involved.

    I hope you all have a great day.

    JeanieG, I am still trying to get my Allietare put together too. And I have a Grand Illusion plus two other Bonnie Hunter quilts to quilt-- Chunky Churndash and a Jacob's Ladder type quilt. I really procrastinate on those big ones.

    Dublb, glad you signed in and told us your story. So sorry you hurt yourself; may it heal quickly.

    Love Bonnie Hunter, but have not made a quilt of hers yet.

    Starting to look at FW 1930 blocks, thinking I only need 94, not 99 and these might be great to skip and not make them. It's not coming together, cannot decide on colors, and its not an easy patterned block.

    Tomorrow will be a 'cherry' day. And strawberries. No sewing expected to get done.

    I printed the last of the FW 30's blocks last night! There are some really busy/hard ones coming up.

    I guess I will be paper piecing all the rest of the blocks. I'm tired of investing in all the paper and ink that will only end up in the trash can. Glad the next sampler I make will be the Civil War blocks and there is no paper piecing... no waste!

    It has been really fun to learn paper piecing with this book, but it does waste fabric, paper and ink. Back to regular piecing once this QAL is through.

    I didn't get very far sandwiching my quilts today. The backing I wanted to use for one was too small a piece, so off I went to JoAnn's to see if they had any more of that fabric. It was the perfect fabric! At JoAnn's I was really sad to see that their fabric selection has gotten terrible. Use to be, you could hardly get at the fabric because the bolts were packed in so tightly. Now they have whole sections and the entire bottom row of fabrics just empty. There must be only about 1/3 of the quilting cottons that they used to have. They still have tons and tons of fleece and flannel, but where is the quilting cotton??? What a bad time to cut back on inventory so drastically, with all the Hancock's closing their doors on the 28th. I guess I'll be shopping my own stash more.

    The selection of premiums at our JoAnn's is about as wide as you can stretch your arms open. I hope the sale continues through the weekend. I should be in Memphis this weekend, and can check the stores up there.

    I am going to have a dilemma when it comes time to set these blocks into a quilt top. Some I like best on point, and some definitely look better NOT on point! Maybe I can figure out a layout with both options....

    Oh my... been working on the two blocks for tomorrow's posting. These are a couple of Y-seam nightmares! I'm just holding my breath and trying to get them done. The first one of the pair just gave me fits putting it together. It's one of the asymetricals, so of course I forgot to reverse the pattern because the author failed to, and my block is totally backwards. I really struggled putting it together, because it was like a puzzle... confusing and backwards. Finally I laid it wrong side up and tried to piece it following the picture. Ugh. Glad it's over.

    I do love both of those blocks, tho. They are beautiful. Just not fun to make. Those on the fence: Don't skip them! They are so pretty!

    sewbizgirl - I'm working on that block as well - I also got it all backwards. Took a while to put together. Ugh!

    Let us just say I have hit the 'pause' button on FW for now. Busy working with dh on the homestead. Yesterday it was red cherries and strawberries. Today its yellow cherries and peas to do. Weather is to hit 90 today an 96 tomorrow. No rain here, so the ground is cracking open.

    Have a good day and a good week, everyone.

    Hello everyone. I haven't abandoned all of you great girls. I am taking extra care of hubby right now. He had an diabetic ulcer appear on one of his legs. This happened several years ago, and caused him to go into the hospital and almost died. He has severe type 2 diabetes, and the skin on his shins are dark and paper thin. He went to the clinic and got it wound treated and wrapped.He has cellulitis. He also had been denied an important diabetic drug he needed and had been on a few years ago then it was denied. Soooo, he finds out it was an error at the clinic of sending in the wrong diagnosis number and had him down as diabetes 1. We are waiting for a hopeful approval now.

    As for me, the best way I can explain my life, though I love each day, is that with my lupus and sjogrens etc. that my cells die off fast, and my bodies energy runs out extremely fast. I can be sewing or trying to make a sandwich and after it may put me in bed. Now mentally I am ready to run races, but my body says are you kidding. lol... It's just something the good Lord gave me as my cross to bare so I surely am not complaining. I find each day with it's special moments of simple happiness. I have got to add some of my blocks into my notebook. I am lagging on that.

    I am working on printing out some nice pictures of dad's family to put in a special album for dad for Father's Day, and also have a flag wall hanging to hang on his door in the nursing home. Me and my sister and a few others that can be there will be taking some food, and have some fun time with dad.

    I will post some pictures of blocks when I get some more done, and anything else.

    Have a great week!

    Love you all.
    "Sometimes it's OK if the only thing you did today was breathe."
    Good friends are right there with you.

    JuneBillie, your plate is full. Not only do you have your own health concerns, but your hubby to help, too. My prayers are with you for strength and patience. I am glad you did not leave us as you thought to do earlier. We are here to sound off to, and to pray for you. We all need each other's support. Hope you have a wonderful time with your dad on Father's Day, and that it is one of your 'good' days, healthwise.

    I was too tired last night to type anything here. Worked up a whole cart of pea vines, picking the pods off in the cool kitchen instead of picking them out in the heat. Then had yellow cherries to pit. When dh got back from his dr's appointment, he helped too. It was after seven pm before we finished. My fingers and hands are so sore, I am taking the day off from any freezing or canning work today. Might make a pie later after we clean house. Sticky floors, etc., that comes with jobs like we did yesterday. It is going to be a very HOT day here today...96 to hundred!

    So glad we have a good cooling system and can stay inside for most of the day. Counting my blessings, and enjoying a new day today. May all of you be able to do the same.

    Just an update on DH, has finished all cancer treatments, he gets so tired and said no more. He wants to be able to not be sick all the time. In the hospital since Sat with pnemonia hope to come home in a couple days. We will have to postpone our anniversery until later, we will be married 60 years today, so maybe do something later. It seems like we have been living at hospitals since 2012. Thank you for all the prayers and hope everyone has a great day.

    Nina, nature's bounty is a lot of work! Hope you can rest today and enjoy the work being done. You must grow cherries? I miss the big garden we used to have when the kids were young, and all the canning, etc. that came with it. We ate well!

    GrannyQ, haven't met you yet but happy anniversary today! I hope you and your hubby can both get well and do something to celebrate. That is quite a wonderful milestone.
