    Will have to check today's mail. I got the one from JanRN. Neighbor RN nurse said dh needed to sit and air his nail-less big toe; so she took me to town and I mailed six envelopes out to those who wanted them. Yes, Honchey I mailed yours to NJ. JeanieG, Dublb, SBG, and JuneBilly have theirs in the mail, too. (Wonder whom I forgot to mention?) I wrote it all down and they all have tracking numbers. It was a very busy and rough morning for me...I finally had time to eat lunch at 3 pm. I am tired. Time to relax and maybe take a nap.

    Take care everyone.

    Today was much cooler! We have been cleaning carpets all day. DF?HOusekeeper came & helped. Some rooms are gonna have to be cleaned again. We have a spot in the front bathroom where #2DSon spilled about half a bottle of Tide. After my DF/housekeeper left. (Gosh she did a lot!) DH & I just used water & worked on that Tide spot. We took turns & worked on it for about 3 hours. Each of us would use up all the water in the Rug Dr. When we refilled the other one would work on it. We still have about half of the house to clean! (Not to mention the rooms that need to be gone over again.)
    I want to state here that I hate white carpets!

    Oh dear, Bev... I hate any wall to wall carpets. But... white? How can you ever stay on top of that? Sounds like it's going to be super clean when you get done.

    My daughter and SIL are considering buying the house they have been renting. She pulled up the carpet in one area and found beautiful hardwood floors underneath. So that carpet will be the first thing to go if they buy the house.

    I am working on my 6th Row by Row now. Every shop I've talked to lately is still waiting for a winner, so maybe it will be ME. I'm not rushing, tho. It just seems wide open, and if I finish I'll take it in somewhere.

    Tomorrow is the big quiltathon day in my charity group. We are sewing together so I will need to get my stuff ready to go. May work on a Quick Strippie quilt.

    Have a lovely evening!

    Hellooooo Ladies, I've been busy working this week, today also and I'm just so tired when I get home in the evening. I'm remembering when doing all this was a snap in my younger days..I've been really feeling my age lately..

    I received plates from Jan, Bev & Sewbiz so far...I have the plates for you guys ready to go just don't have the get up & go right now..Will send them next week.

    It has to be the heat & travel to & fro that's doing it..it usually takes me 40 minutes without any traffic but these last couple of days it's been an hour and 20 minutes each way with all the vacation travellers...i have to travel major highways to work...

    I also have white carpets that has specs of tan, grey & black in them and I think it's time for them to go after 23 years...They held up very good until the last 2-3 years..

    Lovely Quilt OK

    Givio, getting a bundle of scraps ready for you tomorrow...

    Have a good weekend all of you...H.

    Oksewglad that is so pretty. I agree nice calm colors and pretty design. Great Job!

    We use to have carpet in our living room, and both bedrooms. Well, we still have it in the bedrooms, but it will be coming out. I like the feel of it under my feet in the bedrooms especially, but with doggies it is not the best of ideas. When we first got our house we only had one tiny dog that wasn't a problem, but later on after our love for dogs of all sizes took over we knew as we replaced the flooring it would be tile or hard wood type floors.

    SBG your row by rows are just the prettiest. I have never tried one, but hopefully someday. I think I would like to make one as a wall hanging for our master bedroom.

    Today I am sewing on one of the blocks you girls have done from this past Tuesday. I love the way it goes together.

    Bev I need to get everyone on here together to come and help me clean.

    Well, I think we may get a shower, because I just heard some thunder. My little dog you see in my avatar is scared like you wouldn't believe of thunder, but one of my mid size dogs are too. My Lil'Anne could care less and just sleeps.
    She is a Golden Retriever, the other mid size is Matilda and she is an Australian Shepard. Then the tiny one in the avatar is Bonnie, and she is a Yorkie. I got the Yorkie from someone that was going to give her away. I had never had one of those, and I love her so much. The Australian Shepard I got the same way, and Lil'Anne was from the Australian Shepard when I didn't take her soon enough to get spayed, but she did get spayed. All of them are. I think I lost a year of my life last night with me and hubby both trying to give Bonnie a chewy square that keep away any fleas and ticks. They are costly so it was going down her one way or another. The other dogs love them, but Bonnie is so so stubborn, and you would think we were torturing her. We even had to break it apart and hide it in a pepperoni. It made no difference to her though, because she knew she had to do it.

    Enough of my stories for today.

    Good friends are right there with you.

    gladdie, that's a beautiful quilt! Looks like something to celebrate fall.

    The shop hop offered rows for quilting, but most of them were raw edge, fused type applique, and I didn't want them. I'd like to do a row quilt, or, especially, a round robin quilt, and I've looked at the threads on QB for it, but didn't try it yet... If you girls here wanted to do a round robin, my! but wouldn't I jump in with enthusiasm for it!! I'm in another quilting group that starts with a 6" square, then mails it, and we add a 3" border, but only until the block is 24". I'd like to continue bigger until the piece is about 60" but the size was determined before I joined the group. And I wish it was a 6" border instead of 3" because that would give more options of what you could do when it was your turn.

    QNS, great looking recipe. I don't have any nuts, and don't want to go out, so I made brownies this morning. But I wish my plate looked like the one in your picture. lol

    Glad to see all the chatter today, ladies! Nice nut bread, QNS. At our quilting meeting today, one of the ladies brought homemade zucchini bread... YUM. She put some coconut in it too.

    My dog is just as terrified of thunder and sky noises, including hard rain. He's a big boy... I got him a thunder shirt made by the AKC, but he sort of pouts when he has to wear it. It may make him hot.

    Givio, some of my rows are that raw edged fused applique (straight stitched close to the edge). That quilt isn't likely to be washed so I think it will be fine.

    I wish I could find someone in Baton Rouge LA to buy me a kit I want! Also Fairbanks Alaska.

    Great quilt OK! I got dublb license plate today. Thank you, mine are ordered, just have not gotten them yet.

    Dublb - the only place I have carpet in my house is the living room. All the halls, kitchen and baths are ceramic tile, and the bedrooms are all laminate. I cannot believe how much dust I sweep up from the laminate and tile floors, that use to go into the carpets. It is amazing!!!

    Yea for DS#1 have great success in his path to become a doctor, Dublb. I also received your 'license plate' from you. You will be receiving what I sent next week at Midland address.

    All license plates were mailed on Friday and I have tracking numbers if any get lost... let me know.

    Need to work on the next two FW 1930 blocks today. Almost done with border for DS trellis quilt...found a few mistakes I need to correct, and then sew it on...I have been forever trying to get this far on the top border. Feels so good to get this far.

    May everyone have a great weekend and a great week coming up.

    Thanks Ya'll. He had decided to go back to school to become a nurse but his A&P prophesier insisted that he talk to a someone in charge of the nursing/medical studies. When he got there this was the program they wanted him to apply for. And to think 5 or 6 months ago he was laid off & didn't know what he was gonna do.

    Wow... that is awesome. We are always in need of dr.s and nurses. So will he be obligated to work for a while at the county hospital, to pay back his tuition? I think those are great programs!

    Well girls, I have 7 rows of a row x row quilt completed! I am waiting on one more pattern to come in the mail. I think that will be my last... or I might squeak a 9th pattern in there. I don't think there are many "winners" around here yet, so I may win a prize if I hurry up and complete it. Hey, better get those license plates in the mail to me, so I can put them in my quilt!

    This last row had hundreds of pieces (not applique nor paper pieced) to build Graceland. Whew. Like one of our 1930's blocks on steroids!

    When I finish this quilt I'd like to do some of the pretty row patterns I have from 2015... maybe 4 of them in a wall hanging for my sewing area. There were some real beauties last year. This year I don't like probably 90% of the row patterns. My favorite state is Alaska for the most beautiful patterns.

    Hope you are all enjoying your Sunday rest.

    I finished the flimsy of my Bonnie Hunter Mystery for this year Allietare. It went together well for all the pieces. I changed the border, as I saw one that another person did and preferred it. This is the longest I have taken to finish one of her mystery quilts.

    Gorgeous Allietare, Jeanie! Mine is still in the process of being assembled. I got overwhelmed and moved on to other stuff... quilter's A.D.D. Plus mine is in the upstairs sewing room and I haven't been up there in a while. Out of sight, out of mind, for sure. Thanks for the reminder that mine is still waiting for me!

    Shame on me... I still have Grand Illusion and two other Bonnie quilts (not mysteries) waiting to be quilted. They are so big that I procrastinate.

    I still have Easy Street, Grand Illusion, and now Allietare to sandwich and quilt. I am in the process of quilting Celtic Solstice - about half done. I'll be glad when we are finished with this FWS 30's quilt squares, then I can get back to my backlog. I have so many UFO's of which FWS 30's will be another. Some things need only a border, sashing, or putting the blocks together, then into the to-be-quilted stack they go. They seem to be in many stages!
