    Beautiful MiraB!
    All the fabrics come amazingly together to give almost an irridescent look.
    Are you keeping this one for yourself?

    I know I haven't been on here very much lately. I was sorry to not be able to take part in the Bonus Blocks with you all. Just had too much life to deal with and I knew I couldn't make that many by the deadline. I am so curious to see what you all did,

    If it's not too late, I would like to join your next endeavor. I am tired so I may not have read it correctly, but we make one block a month to send to our assigned recipient? I think I can handle that. So if it's not too late, sign me up please. I'm hoping things will have eased up since March.

    Saw those precious pictures of Isa and Bram, Aneal. What little angel. I am hoping for more good news tomorrow.

    Update on Bram and Isa this morning: both aren't doing well. Isa is still very sick, they put a line in her other leg, that one broke too and that leg is possibly infected too. Bram had a quiet start but at about 4 am the nurses called the neonatologist because he was getting worse. An X ray showed one of his lungs was shutting down. He's back on vibration ventilation, needs max oxigen but is resting now.

    Welcome back Janie! I hope things settled down a bit for you.

    Beautiful quilt Mirabelle! I don't have the patience to make that many similar blocks.

    Thanks for the update on the twins Anael! Dang, ups and downs, ups and downs. At least they have gained weight, which helps them I'm sure! We are all still praying for them. Hope Ila's infection clears up real quickly, and Bram's lungs get back to normal.

    Mirabelle - love your Jamestown Landing. That is a great quilt, you did a wonderful job on the quilting!

    Awww, Aneal. It's difficult for you to have all that going on. it really is an emotional roller coaster.

    Things for us right now are not really settled down, but my son and DIL need me to help out with the kids while they deal with her health issues. She had to have her cancerous kidney removed while she was pregnant last year. They have two older daughters and then the little guy was born on Feb 29. So now it is follow ups and tests . I try not to worry about the results until we get them.

    I am leaving tomorrow to back for this round and then they will not need me til March. So lots gets put back on the back burner when the kids need us.

    My thoughts are with you and your family, Aneal. Take care.

    Mirabelle - It's wonderful! "And another one's down, and another one's down, and another one bites the dust!"

    I was down yesterday. I had had a dream yesterday mornin', about my DDad. I was beggin' him not ta go & he said that he had ta go. It's almost been 4 years & I still miss him. However I should not have been so sad that I didn't tell ya'll my Niece delivered my Great Nephew! He is 5lbs 10 oz. (His big brother is so excited!) I did go & see 'em yesterday & held the baby a li'le bit, & helped DNiece w/some things. This niece is special ta me 'cause while her DM worked, I took care o' her.

    Mirab, your quilt is beautiful. Do you do your own quilting? I'm so impressed how you actually finish projects--I have so many waiting to quilt until I get over the fear of my Sweet16. I'm with Jeanie--I've never made a quilt with that many of the same blocks. I just love it.

    Anael, I'm so sorry for all of the ups & downs. Hopefully soon the "ups" will be more often than the "downs". How are you maintaining your sanity?? Prayers coming your way.

    JanieW, nice to hear from you and glad you're joining our PC Mystery Ride. Life can really throw a lot of crap our way at times. Getting back to sewing with our group may be a nice "vacation" for you from all that.

    Bev, congrats!! You're a great aunt (in more ways than one). Enjoy the memories of your dad. My dad passed away 10 years ago and every year when baseball season opens I still go to the phone to discuss that day's games.

    QE, no early Valentine's day FART. Still clearing things up with my mother's estate. All, please keep your fingers crossed: I'm supposed to get an offer on her house this week-end. Can't believe how difficult it is running 2 households.

    Carrie, thanks again for handling the BBs. Like Anne and everyone, I'm watching for the mailman (and he's not to bad to look at either LOL).

    Oh so many sighs for so many reasons.
    mirabelle's iridescent Jamestown quilt evokes a pretty sigh.
    Health concerns for babies and young families calls many "Oh dear I hope they manage" sighs.
    "No BB's in the mailbox" sigh is heard all over--hope that changes to a yeah!!
    "Oh I hope you get the offer" sigh
    A yeah to Janie back with us for the PC trail blocks.
    Now back to cleaning and my MD appt this afternoon. Just a routine one.

    Having a bad morning: hair dryer started smoking just as I finished drying my hair, curling iron died so put hair in pony tail and decided to make a bagel. A raisin caught on fire in the toaster!! But then!!!!!!----the hottie mailman came with my Bonus Blocks!!!! Yay!!! I can't tell yinz how excited I am. Each one got an ooh and an aah. Can't wait til everyone receives theirs so we can discuss them. Yinz are awesome!!!! (Did I use enough exclamation points in this message?)
    Thank you, thank you all!!

    I got my BBs this morning. Each so individual and special. Putting them into a finished product will be a challenge.
    Mirabelle...you inspire me. Someday I will be brave enough to begin actually doing FMQing. It adds such a dimension of beauty to the finished product.
    Dubib...great no grand aunt! How fun that must be.
    Anael...one hour at a time is such a victory right now. Praying for all of you as we'll as the assisting medical staff.
    JanieW...glad to meet you. This group is so supportive and encouraging even if sewing gets pushed aside for a time. Stick with us.
    OK...wish I could give you a hand with the cleaning and getting ready for Saturday. Two hands make light the work you know. Have you licked the cold?
    JanR...praying that you get a good offer on the house. Time for that door to close.
    carrie...THANKS!! Hope you're feeling better too.
    i got the log cabin straightened out and am doing more of those today. Yesterday I did stitch in the ditch on a couple of the Jamestown blocks and have one entire row joined. So far so good.

    Bev, congrats on your Great Nephew!

    Isa is quite swolen from the infection, she needs to pee a lot. The neonatologist hopes she will be back on the amount of food she got before the infection very soon. She needs it to grow. If nothing else happens all she needs is lots of time.
    With Bram itīs another story. His fungus infection prefents him from breathing on his own. Theyīre giving him antibiotics, almost from the day he was born. Today they did make an X ray and it showed his lungs still are infected. If this fungus infection doesnīt go away he wonīt make it. Because he needs lots of rest my DS wasnīt allowed to hold him today.
    So I`m going to make him very soft and warm snuggles with the flannel fabric mirabelle sent me, thatīs all I can do. Iīm still not allowed to touch either one of them, I can only took and talk to them.
    Today I was there, my DS didnīt feel well so he asked me to drive them to the hospital. I was happy I could help. I canīt imagine this tiny boy whoīs fighting so hard might not be there anymore one day.
    Eat, quilt, sleep, repeat

    Aneal,

    I am sending good vibes. It is so hard. You are so strong. Here's hoping for good news for your family.

    I am not supposed to be on the computer, I am supposed to be getting ready to head to my son's. Oh well.

    QNS,

    I have two different Robert Kaufman fusions in yellow. One is darker than the other by a very little. The light one says D#4070 on the selvedge, but I can't read the other one. If you like I could send you some of both just to be sure. How much do you need? I will take it with me to my son's so if I hear you want some I can mail it from there. Let me know.

    Janie

    It seemed to favor the batik orange more than a yellow 'cause of the scratches of browns in the piece. Let me send you a two inch piece in an envelope first...I am short about a yard and quarter here for the last 35 P:C blocks on two sides, a strip an inch and half each. Thanks for the offer.
