    CarrieM ... good plan to have some hostess gifts ready! Always useful now, or in the future. Even for a summer bridal shower!

    MiraB ... you're welcome! Always pleased to help a fellow quilter!!! Will you keep with the GFG zig-zag edge? Or will you cut it off to make a straight edge? and border/bind from there? That's where I'm wondering, what one does. And oh, one final thing ... how big are your hexies? I'm working with 1", as measured on the outside edge.

    Anael ... you can't help but wonder and worry with each appointment. There's always concerns for a single, but multiples, the concerns multiply. I am sure you are good at secretly worrying while not letting it show and affect your DS and DDIL. Let those worries out here, and it'll be easier to manage the happy face when around them. A Christmas Quilt for you and your kitty ... oh please do show us!

    Beautiful work, Carrie and Mirabelle. Colorful. I love color. Yes, Mirabelle, customs might like it so well they would never pass it on to you. Guess we will have to put it on the virtual RV for the tea party. But who knows....maybe you all will visit the USA and stay a day or two here at my house...and visit the others that was on the PC trail with us. Consider it an open invitation from me.

    The more we are together on this trail ... the more I dream about us gathering together, complete with our quilts!

    Another option is that LQS with accomodations that CarrieM and GGal went to ... and that would let you put your feet up a bit too, QNSue, and not be hostessing all the time!

    Wouldn't that be grand for us all to gather?
    Maybe in his off-season, Santa could dash all around and pick us up to meet?
    Should be lots of room in his sleigh for us to take along our quilts!!!!!

    They're on their way now to another hospital. The twins do have problems, one of them is a week and a half behind compared to the other twin. The third baby seems ok for now. So now I'm very worried. My DS will call me as soon as they know anything but it will be a very long night for all of us.

    An Inspector that is testing the 'nap' of the quilt....beautiful colored quilt and cat!! Have a matching cat called Wendy here...eight total cats come in for feed at our place, but they are not inside cats. They pull duty catching mice and rodents outside and in the garage.

    Praying for the triplets; may they be OK and healthy....and Mom, too!! Waiting is so hard too do.

    So many pretties today! Mirabelle, your GFG is beautiful! Carrie, very productive time in the club house. Nice to have those table runners in reserve. QNS, there is no way to ever thank you properly for your wonderful hospitality. You are always so generous too. Anael, I can't imagine your anxiety. I'm praying for your entire family and their safety. BTW..I love your quilt. Is this one for your DIL? QuiltE...I've seen a GFG with tiny hexes and it was stunning. Not something that got done overnight but a nice in between session sort of project.
    if any or all of you get to the Midwest, I will house and feed you so that won't be an expense for you.

    Thank you QNS and GG. I don't know if they've arrived yet, normally it's an hour and a half from where they were but with Friday traffic it might take double the time. I guess I will have to wait a few more hours before I know anything.

    This quilt I'm going to keep! I always wanted a Christmas quilt and the ones I made I gave away. I might make another one for my DDIL but not now.

    Anael--that is a very pretty quilt. I am happy to hear you are keeping one for yourself!

    Thanks for all the nice comments. Today has been another productive day...kids are at friends so I am here all alone. I will have pictures later...lunch now and then back to the clubhouse.

    They arrived at the hospital at 7 pm. I didn't hear from them since, I have no idea if that's good or bad. It's now 9.30 pm here.

    Oh Anael, my heart goes out to you. How scary this is. You and your family is in my prayers. How far along are the triplets?

    My son just called. There's enough reason to worry but they can't do nothing now. One of the twins is half the weight of the other and over two weeks behind in development. They're staying there over night and will come home tomorrow. Next Tuesday they have to go back for another check up. They have to prepare for lots of problems during the rest of the pregnancy. Nothing to be happy about but on the other hand not as bad (for now) as we expected.
    The twins are boys and the third is a girl.

    Anael you and your family are in my prayers, such a worrying time for you DS and DDIL. Please keep us up to date.

    What wonderful hospitality from everyone, DH and I often talk about a road trip around the US, maybe one day

    QuiltE my hexagons are 7/8 inch which is an odd size, the pattern has the border attached to the hexies with a zig zag edge and finishes with a straight edge, hope that makes sense.

    Spending the morning with DS and building contractors discussing some work to be done at his home and then we are going to out for lunch. More bonus blocks this afternoon I hope.

    Hello All ... just back from getting my truck after a service shop visit.
    The snow it is a-comin' ... swirling around on the roads, and with rush hour and darkness coming, there'll likely be some slip-slidin' going' on!
    So yes, I am glad to be back home where it's safe ... and warm!


    Anael ... Oh dear ... my ♥ and prayers go out to you and yours. Snuggle yourself into that beautiful quilt and pretend that all of us FWS/PC'ers are hugging you. That is, if MissPurrrrfect will share with you!

    GGal ... I saw a GFG in a LQS yesterday that was only 1/2" hexies. Talk about itty-bitty work! It was immaculate and at first I thought it was a panel, but not at all when I checked further.

    MiraB ... you're going to have your BBs done way in advance of the rest of us! Hope the contractor meeting goes well and that you and DS agree on the reno work!

    GG, the piggy mat came...it is not heated...just a rubber mat 34 of an inch thick, 33 inches by 48 inches. Hope it works out....the UPS man slipped in and back out again without us hearing him...again. Forgot I had ordered it at first, when dh asked me "What is that" I replied, "Let's open it and see!" So its down under dh's computer on the floor. Funny.

    Anael--you and yours are in my prayers...

    QuiltE--glad you made it home safely. It is like people forget from one winter to the next how to drive in the snow...not sure why!

    QNS--hope dh's "little piggys" stay warm with his new mat.

    Mirabelle--did you have a nice lunch and make good progress on your bonus blocks? Those are next on my list after a couple other projects I need to finish up.

    Today I got the "added border" on my friend's quilt. I just need to clip the edges to make it look like the rest of the ragging of the original quilt. I also got a table runner done for my grandma for Christmas. I used the KT mini-charms that I got at the retreat with Ggal in Sept...bought the matching charms and did raw edge applique. I trimmed a couple squares down for the corners on the border. I will use a green binding. I then cut fabrics for 3 more Rosie blocks....just 3 left to cut.

    QNSue ... I'll join CarrieM in hoping that your DH's Little Piggies are toasty warm!

    CarrieM ... another nice homemade gift!! I really like that striped Christmas text print ... if you hadn't shown the close up, I would have thought it as a stripe. Nice effects. Yes, unfortunately some forget from year to year about winter driving. Worse still, some never know how to drive in the winter!!

    Well I've had a bad day. We were half way ta Brady when they called us from the place that DMIL stays at. She is very lethargic. Well we turned back right away & got her ta the hospital asap. She has (I'm not sure I can spell this..) Septsis. Some infection has spread all through her body. They put a line in the artery in her neck & are pumpin' a boat load o' antibiotics inta her. One good thing is that I didn't have any hospital flashbacks. DH & I got home just a li'le bit ago.

    Anael My prayers for your DGTriplets. {Huggs}

    So sorry to hear about your DMIL Dublb. Gosh it is hard when our loved ones get old....been there, done that! Sepsis is can be very dangerous, I'm glad you got her to the hospital as soon as you did. She will be in my prayers, along with Anael's triplets!

    Bev, I'm so sorry, I hope your DMIL will recover from this.

    My DS and DDIL are on their way home now. They just called. Had a bad night (like me) and were told to take it day by day. For now there's nothing they can do, only watching and hoping the one twin will grow a bit so he has a change to survive. Thank you all for your prayers and good thoughts.

    DublB ... good thoughts coming your way for DMIL. And hoping that DGM is continuing improving.

    Anael ... what a difficult time for all of you. My thoughts and prayers are with you for only the best.

    I talked to my son today and this is what he told he. They had a meeting with the gynecologist (spelling?) last night and she told them every scenario is possible. From going home with 3 baby's to going home with none at all. Last is of course worst case scenario. It's also possible the small twin brother is serving like a 'donor' for his brother and that means the small one won't survive.
    She told them to be prepared for anything possible, to live day to day and try not to worry too much.
    So I took out my embroidery machine and I'm going to make a winter quilt for my grandson. I have to do something and I don't want to make quiltblocks right now.
