    Happy Independence Day...it's been a beautiful weekend here with temperatures in the 70's....Windows are open and the birds are singing...think the orioles are scolding me as I must refill the feeders.

    I've spent the last few days making a couple of minis for the hospital auction. One is 5 little dolls and the other a log cabin type...9 3" blocks with quarter inch finished pieces. They must be delivered tomorrow, quilting and binding to do yet..

    It's been quiet here as the Grands spent the weekend at the other grandparents...The quiet will be over soon... better get to stitching...

    Gladdie, sounds like you have a busy sewing day today... I have some charity quilts to sandwich and quilt today too. Delivery is tomorrow night! I can work on them some tomorrow too, so not worried....

    Good luck on the computer change-over QNS. Hope all goes smooth as silk.

    Happy 4th, everyone! Happy Birthday America!

    I took a nap this afternoon. We finished all the old hens off this morning; they were filled with fat and not laying any more. Wil make excellent roast hen or boiled old hen and noodles.

    DD has backed up all of my computer files onto dh's computer, so tomorrow she can download it back on to the new computer. I may have to have someone help me to get back on line here because I do not remember any passwords! Please alert the monitors here to help me change my password if I do not log in by noon, Central Daylight Savings Time. Thank you.

    Hi, ladies, remember me LOL??? I know I haven't been here in awhile. Health problems, destruction then construction and so many things going on. I've tried keeping up with posts but my wifi and internet have been intermittent. I think things are close to being back to normal and I can get my inner peace back! Made two minis, a compass star and wedding ring. I'll try to get some pics and share them. Please know I think about all of you and have missed yinz.

    Got the minis done and delivered...work tomorrow, too...bought groceries afterwards, put chicken breasts in the oven for supper salad and tomorrow's dinner. Bone in breasts for .99/#. DIL broilers aren't ready yet. These cook up so juicy without any added liquid. Farmer's market day...scratch Angel food cake for $6....so moist doesn't need frosting...I'll share....

    QNS cannot communicate with you all until at least Monday. She has lost all of her contact lists and past emails and I have asked that her password be reset so she will join you next week.

    Oh, poor QNS. Computers are a trial sometimes...

    I didn't get my blocks for this week made. Instead today I put together the two Row by Row kits I had. I posted a thread in pictures, but will show YINZ too!

    I wish we had some sort of network for trading the patterns, just like we are trading plates. I'd love to get some that are too far away for me to drive to. One friend in MN and I are swapping patterns.

    Thank you... I was just looking at some of the plates from other states and saw one that said "YINZ HOME?" Naturally, it's in Jan's 'neighborhood', at a quilt shop in Kittanning PA. Is that anywhere near you, Jan? I would buy one of those, even if you didn't want to trade.

    Not near me, about 2 hours away. Let me see if I can find it and if they'll mail them out. Yinz are too funny.

    Jan, if they will mail them we can order directly... no sense paying postage twice. UNLESS you want to swap, that is... but if you were just planning on shopping for us with no swap, we can call and order ourselves. Let us know. I can look up the address of the shop in Kittanning and let JeanieG know, too. Most shops do mail the plates, just not the patterns.

    Love 'YINZ HOME?'!

    Okay, first let me give a shout out to The Quilt Tree in Kittaning--she was awesome and laughed at the fact that I'm mailing these all over the country and that yinz all know what "yinz" means. I'm late to this party so please explain to me what's happening. I will trade or just send one to whoever wants one. I ordered 10 and if I have extra I'll make myself a door banner LOL. Please PM me your address and email so I know who to send to; I don't think I have current addresses on all of yinz. And if anyone just wants a license plate and doesn't want to trade that's fine too. And you don't owe me postage; she's shipping at the lowest rate.

    SBG, where do you go to find the shops that have the license plates? I emailed my shop at home but they haven't responded yet..I hope they are selling them..If not YINZ are all getting one from Delaware

    You go to the Row by Row website and click on the link that says "Start Here".

    This is the page of pictures of rows and license plates for all the participating shops in New Jersey:

    Or if you are in NC, this is your page:
    https://siterepository.s3.amazonaws....2016_flyer.pdf

    I've gone to their website so many times it's now in my "most visited" list! I'm spending way too much time on this!

    Hello Girls!
    I am still here too. Just not doing much, and yes that is not good. hehe...
    I need some help from you girls in giving me some direction in what to do when making my son and daughter in law a smallish quilt. I am thinking whole cloth, because daughter in law said maybe solid. They will be traveling in a tiny trailer he is making. Style= like one of those teardrop size, so they want it small with just enough so they can cover up if it's a bit chilly in the mountains at night. The problem for me is he wants it "army green". She has made them some tiny cute curtains out of a pretty fabric with little shaped trees on it. I guess maybe army green would describe one of the tree colors, but then some were other pretty colors. How can I make this look nice and keep to army green? I may have brought this up before (who knows with my memory)

    I love reading what all you girls are doing, planning, etc. In my next life I will have lots of energy.

    Have a great day everyone!

    JuneBillie, I would make something that YOU like... otherwise why work on something at all? Maybe take some solid colors from her curtains and do an easy pattern in solids? Sometimes non-quilty people ask for weird things just because they don't know what to ask for ... or what's available.

    I'm sure whatever you make will be nice.

    Today our power went out so I had to find some handwork to do! I ended up starting a Hawaiian quilt I had bought the pattern for about a year ago. I am learning needleturn applique! I do find handwork so relaxing. I'm glad the power outage forced me to get started, as I really love this quilt.

    Thanks SBG. I had been thinking on those lines too, but wasn't sure.

    Back on old computer for three or four weeks until we finish FW 1930. Picture file Picaso did not carry over. Support by the company is no longer in force...at Picaso. Nor did the contact list...two out of three strikes had me upset....very upset. Tired of being told what I needed to do and go on with the new system. So I asked for few weeks of grace and dh and dd are mad at me...but I am the one using the system not them. Love and quiet but not to my mental peace of what I do for fun and enjoyment and being so frustration with new system right now.

    Dh wants to run both CPUs with another monitor I cannot afford right now. Do that will have to wait.

    SBG, I got your 'license plate' and love it. Now to find myself again and go from here.
