    The sewing room is empty. Well except for one desk & a sewing machine that is on it. (No room for 'em in the Sequoia.) The Tundra is all packed up. The Sequoia is all packed up & the trailer still needs about half of it's load. We will finish loading the trailer in the morning & do a final clean up of the house. Not sure when we will leave but we will leave tomarrow. The Sequoia has most of my sewing stuff. We even left room in the Sequoia for the crate that my cat will be in. Boy is he gonna be unhappy.

    I agree that Trellis quilt is a beauty! Good job, QNS. Thanks for sharing.

    Such pretty colors in that beautiful quilt QNS. I know it feels good to have that finished. The colors in the other one your working on will be such a pretty scrappy.

    Sigh, we aren't leaving till tomarrow. We worked real hard on getting the house sparkling clean. We even had everything packed up except for the animals. But it was 2:30 & DH asked me to call DD to see if we can pick up DGD on Tues. (We would meet half-way in Bastrop.) She said yes. We will leave early in the morning. We won't feel so tired & will be able to get unloaded before we have to get DGD.

    No QNS - did not notice an error!

    OK - I've used Elmers to baste my quilts for several years. Works great!

    No, I didn't see any error in the Trellis quilt. Busy quilts hide a multitude of sins!

    Hi Ladies--

    Just getting a chance to check in after a while away from the boards. QNS--the trellis quilt turned out beautifully. OK--I saw a quilt top on the UFO board that looks good too! I am sure others have been getting projects done too, I just didn't get a chance to go through every page since it has been a bit since I've been here.

    I am no longer working at the insurance office and I started selling Pampered Chef kitchen tools (eventually want to have just 1 party a week)....the "regular" hours of the office weren't working out well with kids' schedules. I have been able to get a little card making and more sewing done in the last couple weeks. It has been really nice to be able to relax. This week my goal is to start a little more structured routine so I can get more done on my days home....can't sit around on the computer quite so much or spend all my other time in the craft room as much as I'd like. I am going to spend some time each day cleaning out drawers, cupboards and closets. School starts here in about a month I want to get the house in order before that. Archery tournaments are still part of our lives...at least one tournament a month.

    I hope all are well and that I can stay in touch a little better.

    I got two fun plates in the mail today, "Chocolate Kiss" from JeanieG, and "Proquiltinator" from Honchey. Thank you ladies! I bought that pattern for a tote bag for the plates... now I have to make some.

    Hot, hot and hot here. Little ducks are learning how to line up in a row to be sprinnkled by the water hose several times a day. Guess that means we have our ducks line lined up.

    Yes, Jeanie I got your 'license plate' and I love it.Although I did not get as many as I would have liked, what I got was wonderful. I see a handbag in my future.

    h I did not get the number of plates I was expecting too, what I got was wonderful. I do think I see a big handbag in my future. The purple/green/black trellis quilt is done and Savannah is almost done. Just adding the slashing and cornerstones and border.

    Everyone keep safe from the heat and enjoy the day.

    Just a quick line. Givio I have your fabric scraps together, but it will be just a bit longer before I send them out due to us girls getting a call about our dad that is in the nursing home. His kidneys are failing him so they don't expect him to live long. I stayed over there all night, and home for the night to rest and get some sleep before going back over.

    Appreciate any prayers.

    Nina, I haven't sent plates to you as I'm still collecting them...

    Jeanie, yours will be on it's way in a day or two..

    I'm thinking of starting a "follow along" thread for the Gypsy Wife Quilt...The pattern is expensive... I went on the sewitsforsale site on Yahoo and got mine there from someone that was willing to part with it at a much reduced price.
    Anyone wanting to follow along? I'm thinking of starting it this coming September after Labor day...

    Susan, I'm sorry to hear about your Dad. I pray that if it's his time, he will pass peacefully with no suffering. Praying for strength for you and the rest of your family, too. God is close at times like these!

    Nina Sue, I am going to a quilt show in a couple of weeks and will have access to a lot of vendors, hopefully with PLATES! I owe you a BUNCH of plates in trade, so hold on. It's not over yet!

    I will think about the Gypsy, Honchey. Things are progressing here one stitch at a time. Road trip coming up on Friday. Too bad no credit no cash available, but good times and laughter with the group I go with. MC numbers were stolen on the last trip I made and that is still being investigated....no way we ordered from a top store in Wisconsin. It will get straightened out, I am sure. So have a good day, celebrate the memories, JuneBillie, Prayers coming your way for love and strength in saying 'good-bye' to your Father.

    I am officially moved. Alright, we will still be making trips to Midland till it is sold, but I now consider Brady home. It has been a real busy time. NO time for posting, just lurking & maybe giving ya'll a report here & there along the way. I sure hope for more time soon. I still have so much I have to do to this house. I can't believe that I have moved twice in 3 years!
    PS JuneBilly My prayers are w/ya. {{{{{HUGGS}}}}}

    I am home a bit right now. Early in morning son dropping me off back at the nursing home until late that evening. Keep calls going in between to the nurses. I had to check in to keep my sanity. Or what little I have.

    QNS, I never seen any thing but good things in your quilt.
    Also, you said we have until even in September on the license plates. Well, I am hoping before it's too late to get you one from one of the shops to send you due to you really wanting the extras for what you will use them for. I will do my best.

    Also, QNS my mother was just that way. She made us girls all a quilt and other things, and said she wanted them used not to decorate or hide away somewhere. That is what made her feel the best. So I try to go by that now too.

    Thinking of all of you girls. Life is too short not to do something you want to do today, and have some fun even amidst the chores and whatever kind of jobs.

    Yesterday afternoon, nothing went right in the quilt room. I had never filled a bobbin with the new machine and after several tries, I got out the book on the machine. And tried again. One I thought I had filled, ended up in
    bird nest' under the plate which caused more troubles since I could not see to clean it out. DH came in twice and re-threaded the machine. So hoping today is a better day. Putting the Savannah on the vertical board, just have the slashing and cornerstones to do and arranging the blocks in the quilt. Love how fast it is to put together.

    JuneBille, one day at a time or one hour at a time...take care of thy self a bit, too.

    Dublb, take care of your self and enjoy Brady.

    Just enjoyed a bowl of cucumbers and tomatoes topped with ranch dressing...from the garden...summer is in full swing...Weeds every where..5"+ of rain on Friday and Saturday helped them along...I look around and see so much to do....

    Plan on quilting cow quilt today, will report to you, Jeanie on how it goes..tomorrow my QBuddy comes to sew..always good...

    but first, youngest 3 Grands want to spend the night, 10 yo says she'll make pancakes...meanwhile 12 yo has found her next quilt project...she wants to try Tonya Ricucci's Word Play techniques...whew her last project did not turn her away from quilting. I'm anxious to see what she comes up with.

    Tuesday the NC crew come in the late afternoon and stay til the next Wednesday...Thursday the WI crew move in until Saturday and will be back later ...MrOK already asked me what nights he should make hotel reservations for me...even said I should take my machine and projects and have a solo quilt retreat...boy after 45 years he does understand me....

    Bev enjoy this transition time...this is the home of your choice for you to create even more memories

    Carrie...so good to hear from you..oh I recall those days when you wonder if you are coming or going and empathize...good luck with the new endeavor.

    We now know the SBG, just keeps sewing, just keeps sewing.....

    JuneBillie...life gets tough, doesn't it...try to have some time for yourself, even if it's only a few moments in the day.

    Still don't know where the oops is in your quilt, QNS....hope the sewing's going better this afternoon..

    Honchey, how's the PT going? My knee is acting up today and thought of how you're dealing with your issues...

    Okay, this isn't getting sewing done...later yinz

    Ok, I am told by private PM the upper left corner on the pillows is off in the trellising. I replied, "It does not matter, DS will love it 'cause I made it." If you ever feel the need for a private retreat, come on down South, to our humble homestead and have a free room and board...even Mr.Ok is welcome to come too.

    OK, what does your LQS license read? And your row by row, do you design it? We have soo many large cucumbers and squash right now...and i just do not know what to do with them. Is there a solution other than feeding them to the chickens?
