    My DS and DDIL just came back from the hospital. Bram is recovering from the past two days, we're all waiting for the antibiotics to do the work. Isa started to throw up, they're not sure why. Otherwise they're both quiet without having additional problems.

    Anael - Hooray for the 3 week b-day!
    Jan - I just love my new "truck." I know it's not a truck but it's not a car either. I sit up in it & look through the window better. My problem w/other trucks & SUVs is that I usually look through the lower part o' the window & can't see well. It feels narrower that other big trucks so I don't feel like I'm drivin' a tank. The seats are sooo very comfortable. (At least the '07's & older ones are.) The Sequoia isn't as long as the Tundra so it is easier ta back up. (That was my only complaint about the Tundra.) Test drive it & see if it works well for you.

    Happy Birthday to Bram and Isa, three weeks is such a super accomplishment for them...I know they are not out of the woods yet and each day will bring new challenges but for every day they are with us I will celebrate.

    Thanks for the compliments, DD and I have always sewn together and we have a lot of fun in our own little world, we always call each other our partner in crime (spending too much on fabric, patterns, sewing machines), you get the idea, if only DH knew what we get up to, ssssssshhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh don't tell

    Your quilts and the quilt your DD made are gorgeous mirabelle! I like the lay out of the card trick quilt!

    Bram is still very critically ill but stable at the moment and both are sleeping. Isa is doing ok, she pooped a lot and didn't throw up that much anymore, needed a bit less oxigen so she's ok for now.

    I didn't do anything today besides sewing two rows of blocks together. So a very productive day
    CU all tomorrow!

    Anael--good to hear you were able to get some sewing in today.

    I got the BBs swapped out. Still need to package and address...that will have to wait until school is done in the morning. I might have to wait until Tuesday to get to the post office but will go ASAP. Just depends on how I am feeling...head is acting up again.

    Carrie, feel better. I'm tired just reading all the things that you do each day! Can't wait to see the BBs but put your health first.

    Carrie, hope you feel better soon!

    Bram is resting and quiet. Isa will be taken off of the ventilator later today and my DDIL is freaked out about it. When Bram was taken off he became very ill and she's very afraid the same thing will happen to Isa.

    DD, nice thought but I think it's going to be a bit expensive with us across the pond or border.

    Anael, what is it with pets and quilts--they love them! When I take a pic of a project I have to spread it on the living room floor. Patches is asleep in the center of it before I'm done smoothing it out. Your kitty is claiming that snuggle!!

    DD, altho I like the idea of a Row robin, I never sign on for them. 1) I have a dog--doesn't sew, but I'm sure pet hairs would be included; 2) I smoke--not in sewing area but people are extremely sensitive to odor; 3) I'm a fabric slut--I buy fabric anywhere from Tuesday Morning to LQS so you never get equal quality in all pieces; and 4) I'm too insecure in my abilities and wouldn't want to ruin anyone else's hard work. I like that everyone is including suggestions for our next project and don't want to discourage any one who would be interested in RR--if I were normal, I'd probably love it LOL.

    BB update--I have everything in envelopes and addressed. I ran out of packaging tape so will need to run to the store before the PO tomorrow...not a big deal since I need a few other things anyways.

    Dh and kids say I am a control freak and they might be right; I plan certain colors and design in a quilt; do not like kits that force me to use exact colors...do not like trading pieces around and get a different 'take' on it. I buy fabric for quilt possibility with a light, medium and dark pieces that I like that appeals to me. Or know my stash well enough to use some of it. I was in a trade in South Texas, refrained from using red in the block 'cause I wanted to do a 'red dragon' in the center...and when I got it back, the quilter had added a red to the blocks, so she had me seeing red, and yet I had to be polite and say how well I liked it...so that was enough for me, thank you, but no thanks. It is a good thing we do not all think alike, do things alike with our own touches, or see things alike that we can admire one another's work..and I do love the idea we are exchanging blocks....and that they are signed. Wonderful thing.

    Yes, that CAT looks comfortable, saying to you, "I need to snuggle, too!" Anael. We had cats inside in TEXAS, and they always laid on the new quilts. And, I agree with JanRN, inside dogs like to lay on the new quilts, too. There are always adorable pets pictured on QB caught 'in the act'. Sorry, JanRN, I cannot tolerate any smoker smoking next to me or in my house or car 'cause then I cannot breathe properly. It is not just a matter of personal choice...but a health issue. Use to be an old song, "Smoke, Smoke that cigarette....".

    Company a'coming in tomorrow evening; baked 'thee cake' and double batch of brownies today. Will do the fresh bread tomorrow and maybe couple of pies. Planned oven cooked meals with less work and more fun for all. Big pot of Creamy chicken and noodles is all ready to eat also. Dh pronounced it prefect when we sampled it for supper.

    Jan maybe you will change your mind when you get your Bblocks I know that we ALL have different capability's and budgets. Im not picky AT ALL! I think that is why I havent joined a RRobin... afraid of the quilt police!!! but I dont think any of us here are that critical

    Aneal, cost wise.... I was thinking that for those out of US we could each slip a few dollars in that persons package and send it around. by the time it gets to mailing across the water/border there may be enough dollars to help with the shipping cost???

    Carrie !!!!YAY!!!!!

    Mirabelle...didn't mean to ignore your lovely quilts you posted yesterday. What fun it must be to quilt with DD. I would love to do that.
    Jan...what is it with you nurses that smoke? A good friend that I quilt with is a nurse and she smokes too! I guess we all have our vices. I don't think you should be so shy about your quilting skills although I do understand how you feel. We're not here to judge but to enjoy!
    Anael...thanks for the pictures. Glad kitty it feeling better and the news from the nursery is good. Do you you know how much weight the little ones have gained?
    DD...do the volunteers want to use your new toy too? You would have quilts non stop!
    QNS...with all of your cooking I don't see how you have time to sew. You don't let any grass grow under your feet do you? It all sounds soooo good. Have fun with your company.
    Carrie...we will be patient.
    All...I have another idea for us. I just picked up the Quiltmaker magazine today and it has quilt on the front that is designed with "made" cloth. You take scraps or crumbs sewing them together any which way and then cutting a shape from that. She made stars from "made" cloth setting them with a constant background. It was really lovely. Jan I know that you said you get bored when you make more than a couple of blocks with the same pattern but the beauty of this that I think we could do substitute blocks for variety. I don't think any if us lack scraps!
    Honchey and Jan...are you both dug out?

    Oh! I stopped readin' when I saw the cute cat & posted. LOL I'll participate w/what ever we want ta do tagether. I really don't want ta split up. I really like the idea o' all us helpin' w/the over seas packages.
    Jan I'll wash anything that has cigarette smoke. I just got a salad spinner that washes small things as gentle as ever.

    I found a picture of the cover quilt...in case anyone was interested. http://www.quiltmaker.com/patterns/d...html?idx=15048 I am not a big "scrappy quilt" person....maybe because I don't have a lot of scraps in my "stash" yet.
