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!
    At least you are making some pretty patterns. You'll have some good quilts when they are done.

    Oh JeanieG that quilt is just beautiful. Such pretty colors in all those nice patterns. You must be so proud to have it done thus far.

    I have my Ruby block done with a minor blooper, because my eyes were so dry. I have it posted.

    Forward progress is wonderful, ladies. JeanieG I can really appreciate your success of your progress. Wonderful colors and finished top!

    I am almost done with the border for DS trellis quilt...it has been too many years in progress. I hope to finish up at least three quilt tops this week. And take at least three others to quilters next week.

    Back to the Dr. this Tuesday for DH; and they will remove the nail on his left big toe. Too much inflection under them for a diabetic two. But he is doing so much better than i thought he would. BIL will be down on Thursday to mow the yard, garden and orchard. Young hen ducks are in their new pen that DH finished yesterday. They remind us of the old cartoons of Baby Huey...

    Take care everyone...and celebrate each day this week.

    I love OK & Jennie's finished quilts. They are both lovely examples of Bonnie Hunter Quilts. I have Talking Turkey almost cut out. It is one of over 50 UFO's that I put in bins to store under the beds in Brady.
    We are still cleaning the carpet. We are cleaning the carpet in my bed room. The place that the dogs sleep has to be gone over again & again. Taking a lunch break right now.

    Oh my goodness! Those babies are so adorable, QNS! I can't stand it... so yellow and fuzzy with those cute little ducky faces. I'd be picking them up all day. Will they be white ducks when grown?

    Got your plates today, and also Givio's ... YAAAAAAAYYYY! RxR fun.

    If you recall 'Baby Huey' of the Donald Duck family, that describes them. They are Giant White Pekin Hen Ducks, and grow bigger than the average duck and lay more eggs. Dh loves his duck eggs for breakfast and I love to bake with them. Truly a professional chef' s choice of eggs.

    SBG, I glad you are delighted with your 'license plats' mailed to you from me. Enjoy.

    I got your license plates today also QNS! They are awesome! Mine are not here yet, I should have taken the time to go to the quilt shop and pick them up! I cannot believe they have not arrived!

    Car shopping does take a lot of time! Especially car buying.... I went to Memphis to see the kids last weekend and planned only to go to quilt shops for RxR stuff, and the few remaining Hancock's liquidations. My SIL sells cars now and the kids have been bugging me to trade in my CRV with over 200,000 miles on it. With the long trips I make alone, they want me to be safe! So about two whole days were eaten up looking at cars and making a decision and then trading my car in. But, I love the new car (Rav 4) and I'm glad they forced me to deal with it.

    One great thing, the CRV seats were never comfortable and I have disc degeneration at the bottom of my spine. I was riding with a lumbar cushion and had developed BAD sciatic pain when driving for more than 30 minutes at a time. The seats on the new car fit my back so much better and I don't need the lumbar cushion at all. After a week of driving in the new car, I'm not having the sciatica anymore! Woo hoo.... That's worth all the tea in China.

    I started this once and Microsoft interrupted and updated files for nearly an hour.

    Dh has decided he could not go out this morning and chore so yours truly was elected to go out and do the chores. Not all the files are moved from the old computer to the new one, so I am trying to get more of my quilt pictures on to a "stick" or flash drive and into the new computer. LHope it works. I printed off a bunch in contact print; cannot believe how many pictures I have in Picaso.

    Thanks for letting me know you received my packet I sent to you. Its what I wanted to do. It does continue until in September, so there just might be more coming your way. Time will tell its story.

    Take care; remember this day shall not come again in our life time, so enjoy and celebrate today.

    We have flash flood watches in our area...expecting heavy rain, but we have had close to 5" in the past 10 days so ground is wet and the creeks/rivers are full....we can't control Mother Nature.

    I have sewn 3 projects in the past 2 days at work...2 Triangle frenzy runners using a 10 1/2" cut...took longer to cut them out than to sew...today made a large wall hanging using a Christmas panel...again longer to cut than to sew...used striped border fabric and mitered the corners, sobbing had to cut and match carefully...home early so feet are up and maybe a bit of a nap as MrOK is nowhere to be found....jeez he could've left a note....

    Oooh new wheels...always a nice feeling, isn't it? No back pain, a plus, SBG....

    Love the quackers....Huey, Louie, and Dewey.......

    I am late saying hello tonight. Me and hubby spent the day making the trip to his first new Pulmonologist appointment.
    He is on oxygen 24/7 and this doctor who we liked got him set up with correct levels of his oxygen through out the day and night along with a long acting inhaler. They will be scheduling him for a CT Scan soon to make sure he doesn't have anything hidden going on such as an aneurism. Several years ago he had a blood clot in his groin, and lung.

    Great to hear about the car buying for those who needed one.

    On my way to look at SBG's row by row quilt.

    Yup and I have quite a few more plates left over! I want to save out some to make bags with them. Look at this cute pattern:
    http://www.creativequiltkits.com/lic...-a-stitch.html

    Of course, you could put them on almost any kind of bag.

    SBG I checked out that bag pattern to see how they were used, and it is a nice bag.

    As I said on the picture link here your row by row is just beautiful, and so interesting to look at all the little beauties. How you set everything worked so nicely. It was fun seeing your license plates on it. Congratulations on the finish.

    Love the Row by Row you made SBG. Ought to win a prize and I hope you do; you are a winner for having finished it that is great! Shopping for new or used cars can be exhausting. But rewarding when you find the ONE that works for you.

    Thank you ladies... going to see if I can be a "winner" today. I haven't seen a winner posted from my two local shops yet (on Facebook) so I am hopeful.

    Honchey needs to answer your question, JuneBilly. I think they will be 'cause the Farmer's Wife and PC are still on site in the archives. When Honchey hs the time, she will give you the official word.

    Dh secured our garage last night so the raccoons would not enter and eat the cat food. I checked this morning, and the East Door was barricaded so raccoons could not enter in the cat door. But the West door was up 18 inches inviting the whole family of raccoons in to eat. I had to laugh at him feeding everything well on our little homestead, including the wildlife. He did secure the lids on the steel cans of feed. LOL! His foot is doing better and he did not have to have the left foot big toe nail taken off. He is a happy guy this morning.

    Thanks QNS. I need my full year. I guess it doesn't matter though, I have my book, and when I get mine done I can always show you girls how mine turns out in the end.

    I hope SBG wins!

    QNS we have had problems with squirrels getting into things, and also hanging from our bird feeders eating their food. Another problem that is a first here, is we have large black ants that are coming in from somewhere, and hubby bought a pack of some round things they are suppose to go into and eat the poison and take it back to the nest to the queen. They do not work. I will be getting some spray. We live so close to the back woods that we seem to be prey for everything.
