    QNS, I'm glad to be called 'young'! I'm 60.

    I had forgotten about the Row by Row thing. Great excuse to road trip to all the LQS within reach. I don't collect the license plates, but would be happy to shop for anyone who would like to get the Mississippi ones. Just let me know. I think each shop has it's own little saying.

    Bev, I hope they can get your DGD feeling better. I never realized a ceiling fan could do that much damage, but I guess they can, especially a big one. Hope she's okay.

    Youngest son left this evening for Memphis where he has a job interview tomorrow. I hope this is the right thing for him and it works out. If it does, he will be moving in with his sister and bil who live there and have asked him to come. Hubby and I will miss him but he has to spread his wings and FLY! I'm on pins and needles a bit over this.

    SBG, you are young; and still feeling young at heart. If the license plates are around five dollars, I would repay for five of them Mississippi or what is handy for you. That goes for any others on PC that could send me a few. Texas in particular. Dublb?? After this weekend....I know you need all your time to move to Brady this next 3 days. Besides it runs through September 22.

    Hope, Dublb, your DGD is fine. Our heads are really protected and I pray that hers was, too. Maybe she needs a helmet to wear to sleep.

    I ;am feeling better; good enough to argue with DH to get the trash out. Dressing out the three young roosters this morning.... have gotten water boiling and helped dh put his cardboard starting pots up in the fruit room for next year where we both can find it.

    Good morning!

    QNS, there are maybe 3 LQS I can reach in Mississippi, but I will be going to Memphis to see the kids every so often. I may be able to get you some Tennessee plates, too. What if they are $6? Is that ok?

    How's everyone doing with this week's blocks? Are we ready to post?

    I think that in my mind I am making a throw for the QB PC and FW folks that would like one from each state we travel in or live in. Like: JeanieG, JanRN, Honchey, SBW, JB, Givio, Katybob, Dublb, and any others I missed that like to be warmed up and cuddled from memories and prayers on these trails as a token of the past...friendships, etc. Have a rough sketch in mind to make the tops and let each one quilt it as a quilt however they chose. deadline is Sept. 22, 2016, with delivery by Christmas to each of you. You may PM me to exclude yourself or speck up here.

    Wow, that is a very sweet and generous thing for you to do, Nina! Thank you for including me, esp. since I'm so new to the group. Wish I found you ladies sooner.

    That would be so nice QNS, I'll put it on my wall with my other Friend's Quilt! I'll go by a local quilt store and get you some CA ones.

    I sent everyone an email that I had email addresses for clarifying the license plate purchases option of PM me the local store name and number and I can contact them directly and work it into my budget or you can ask for an address and sent it to me. Please count correctly on how many I will need and I will let you know how many have said 'yes' to the gift by the Sept 22nd date with delivery planned for Christmas of this year.

    I will have a pause of computer service after the first of next month, because I am getting a new computer with windows ten and that is a long learning curve for me. So be forewarned about that.

    No Honchey today so far, but I am sure she will remember its Tuesday. I am not posting today on FW 1930.

    Yes, Honchey is okay but the lady (hmmm) that's supposed to post the thread is becoming very absentminded lately...

    I did win $50 bucks tonite at Bingo...

    I was given a bunch of fabric to starch , press & cut for a baby quilt and just got lost in the day..Had PT today and when I got home I was bushed, took a nap & slept for 2 hours... helped the lawn guy locate the sprinker heads so he could trim around them..I was bending over so much , it was so hot I left. early to cool down in the Bingo hall..it's always very cool there.. Got home 1/2 hour ago and realized I didn't post the thread

    I'm going to check my email now to see what Nina sent.. H.

    Oh Honchey...you are not the only one who is absent minded... MrOK is to be gone a week leaving tomorrow. I packed his bags yesterday thinking he was leaving today...

    I'm having trouble posting from my computer so I can't post my pictures or comments....not sure what's up with that...

    Busy week ahead and MrOK leaves tomorrow...did I say tomorrow?....took two of my Christmas minis off DIL's dining room wall last night to enter at county fair after work..
    Jeanie, at least your friends blocks are on a DW..must get mine worked on, too. I like your idea..

    Keep breathing deep, dublb..I've been doing the same although haven't had the family health issues to deal with..and the same to you JuneBillie..

    SBG...you manage to get so much done..I thought I was going to find my sewing machine tonight, but worked outside til after 9:00...grass is mowed...body sore from all that jostling around on the mower..
    Later...

    I talked about it here, then sent emails because not everyone checks in on a daily time schedule, only when they find the time. One did PM me, another answered on line here. Hope to get a yes, no or maybe soon so I do a head count on how many Quilt licenses I need to think about.

    I'm a little confused with the license plate thing...I need a little more detail or explanation? I am interested... I could get NC & NJ cause it is where I am at different times of the year...

    This starts tomorrow? I think I'm seriously losing it..!!!!

    Honchey, all shops are doing a Row and Row experience across the USA and Canada. With this thought is a 'license plate' fabric with a 'license plate' made up for their shops name that sells separate from the Row by Row experience. Each shop will sell license plate by shipping or in their store, but not the Row by Row, it has to sold in the store. Check the internet under your favorite stores and it should show them. I can sent you examples by email. They seem to run $5.00 to $8.00 each. I just need to know how many 'throws' I need to aim for now...then go to the next step of acquiring them.

    I have a count of four at the moment. Donations are fine, but I need to know numbers of who is in for the gift now, because I am thinking at least 10 to 12 gift throw tops. One for each of us in the Christmas tops. It runs from June 22 to September 22 of this year. Each top will have a license plate or two or three representing each of us favorite quilt stores that we shop at, work at or live near. I will keep the plates in separate packets and mail them out in time for Christmas. Each one will have representation of all the quilt shops requested...ten or twelve at least whatever the head count of accepting the 'gift'. and what store to purchase them from and their telephone number.

    Thank you oksewglad. That was sweet of you.

    Our weather outside today is so humid. I opened the door to let my little dog out to do her business, and the air was like breathing through cotton or something.

    Absent minded? What's that? hehe... I lost my mind a long time ago.

    Honchey yay on your winning.

    QNS is this license plate thing for those regulars that has been here for a long time? I wasn't understanding either, but that is how my mind stays.

    Sewbizgirl you do get a lot done, and so do a lot of others on here. Good for all of you. Energy is a gift.

    Have a blessed day girls.

    Yes it was an exchange. I think it was suppose to designate the area we are from, mine being the ocean/seashell theme? I did a QAYG on them, and I love how it turned out! I do not remember what we called it at the time, I just call it Friends Quilt.

    Got my 'license plate at my hometown quilt shop this morning. I plan on getting as many as what signs up for the 'gift' throw...so far, four have. Name:  1-DSCN0549.JPG
Views: 56
Size:  35.1 KBMy photo is a little off but it clearly shows the quilt shop in Centerville, Iowa, as Shabby Chic... Each LQS will have them made up until September 9th, according to the local shop here. It measures eight and half inches by four and half inches. Rather neat, I thought. Hope you do too. Please let me know if you want to accept this gift or not... I hope you do love the idea as well as me. So far, JeanieG, SBG., and Dublb are OK wi;th it....whose the fourth I counted, I do not know.

    What a day today has been.....DH got bitten all over his legs by fire ants and he blacked out while sitting in a chair so I called 911 and after the EMT's arrived and worked on him they recommended he go to the ER..He said no! after they left he decided to go to the Urgent Care about a mile from home..We waited for 1 hr & 20 minutes before they saw him..but just before that He was having a hard time breathing and felt a heaviness in his chest..they took him in the area where they did an EKG 3 times hooked him up to an IV and gave him meds thru that to reduce the swelling in his legs...The DR then told us he has to go to the hospital...Ambulance came & off we went...The did a full work-up and found that his enzymes were normal and didn't have a heart attack..The pumped him up with a few different cortizones and came home...He went to bed and woke up 6 hours later and thought it was the next day...I'm having a drink, a real drink right now ..I've been up since 5:30 this a.m. and am exhausted..The DR also told him if he ever gets bitten again by Fire Ants he needs to go to the ER asap!! I was so scared when he blacked out..He was looking straight at me but wasn't seeing or hearing me..I had to shake him and got wet towels and soaked him down...it was a horrifying experience...

    See ya all tomorrow....H.

    Wow! That was a scary situation. Glad that they found out the cause and he is doing better. Who would have thought that ants could cause a medical problem.

    So sorry Honchey... That is very scary. You did the right thing getting him the medical help he needed. Men can be so hard-headed about those things. Hope your hubby can avoid fire ants in the future!

    Here is some information on WebMD about fire ant stings. Good information to all us us to know. Who would have thought it could be so dangerous!

    We experienced fire ants in Texas and they are no joke! So glad that is behind you and you can avoid the problem in the future. Boiling water poured directly on their nest hole lin the ground is the best way to kill the nest. So sorry you and Mr. Honchey had to go through that experience. One real drink might have lead to two in this case. Hope today is a better day for both of you.
