    Did you hear the sigh from Iowa? House is cleaned; good company and friendships are back home; and I took a nap. I'm also Sec Treas for our little group so had to make sure all was in order for our meeting. Oh and south farm heifers were out this morning so a mad dash to get them back in. They broke off the fence post that anchors the gate. Not sure how to fix that with frozen ground! But I got my morning exercise.
    Oh little ones keep fighting those nasty infections. Anael somewhere I saw a picture of a pair of incubator twins put in the same crib. They needed each other. Hope that is something Bram and Isa can do. As always a prayer for Anael's angels. For our preemie Jackson I found a saying that I wrote on his quilt. "Precious one so small so sweet dancing in on angels feet." The red plaid fabric on the corners and the plaid in "Sam's" shirt were from his GGpa's shirts. Name:  008.JPG

    That´s a gorgeous quilt oksewglad and a lovely saying! I don´t think they will do that, together in the same incubator.

    Delicious chicken pie mirabelle. I will have some for dinner!

    Bram and Isa had a quiet night. Today they´re 4 weeks old! Another milestone. Let´s hope many more will follow.

    We have mail!!!! We have Mail!!!!!

    So many different variables among us. I see I am not the only one who is stepping outside their normal comfort zone.
    And soon we'll know who we are to create for, this month. EXCITING!!!!


    QNSue ... Such a fresh breath of spring/summer air!!! We all need this, as it's down to -22°F (Zero° F for the rest of you!)

    OKSGlad ... Darling Lil Farmer Quilt! and so nicely done with GGPa's shirts!

    MiraB ... looks absolutely delicious. I want to skip the RV and go straight to the IRL version!!

    Happy, happy birthday, babies! Such good news, Anael. They were among my first thoughts and prayers this morning.
    OK....darned heifers. Who needs that kind if exercise. Hope the men figured out how to fix the gate post so they stay corralled. I'm glad that you have more pleasant memories of yesterday. Clean house, friends,....can't beat that.
    mirabelle....that chicken pot pie looks delicious! So many talents you have!
    QNS...that block is so pretty. The fabrics are beautiful together.
    Jeanie...welcome back. What fun to have camping buddies. You and you DH stay very active! Good for you.
    i have my mystery block selected! This will be fun. Thanks for the great idea and getting it organized, Honchey. I fondled the BBs again yesterday. Still no inspiration for finishing them but I know it will come. They are so lovely!

    Wow-4 weeks old!! Happy, happy day. You realize they aren't even at their "due date" yet. What little miracles, the prayers keep coming!

    That chicken pie would be perfect for today--cold, blustery, minus zero windchills, and snow. I'm making a pork roast & veggies in crock pot so I can hopefully finish up last section of Pam Bono table runner. It takes me a whole day to make one section and there are 8 sections. It would take me forever to make one of her quilts but I do love her patterns and methods; very few seams to match up.

    Have a great Sunday, ladies, and stay warm.

    I'm good to go ... just need to know for whom I am making the first one!

    I am wondering if you did send out the other email, Honchey, being that GGal has her block picked out.
    If so ... I didn't get that email!

    Look who's chomping at the bit!!! I haven't sent out anything pertaining to who is making who's block...Ggal just might be making the same block after looking at the info for everyone...which is totally acceptable... See...it's a mystery already!!!!

    I meant I have picked out which block I want everyone else to make for me. That was one of the questions on the questionnaire. I'm waiting to see what my first "assignee" has listed for her block/fabric/color in her response to the questionnaire before I start anything else. I aim to please as much as is within my creative abilities.

    Hey, I missed that pineapple reference!! Re-read. Oooh, I guess I'd better tape that list to my sewing table!! Otherwise, its hard to tell what I would do! I failed to read the instructions, too. I do not care what kind of block I get 'cause this talented group it does not matter, except I try to avoid whites...it will go into a sample quilt whatever the block is, it will be well received.

    When will we know whom we sew for??? I got the names with numbers and addresses for everyone...so do we sent it direct or through some one again? Now to line up 12 different patterns....for each of you. But whom do we sew for first???

    That chicken pie looks very good, Mirabelle...the top is so nicely baked. My tops are always doughy under the crust.

    Good news about the twins celebrating that first four weeks.

    You ladies sure have been chatty this morning.

    I was gone all day Saturday at our last "league" archery tournament...it was a home one so I was there from 7am til about 8:30pm...pretty much crashed when I got home. Things ran smoothly so that was good. We go to State (Des Moines) the first weekend in March, so get a weekend off...yay!

    Mirabelle---your chicken potpie looks yummy. I too am curious what your crust is?

    OK--your baby quilt/saying is very cute.

    Anael--happy 4 weeks to the twins...good news on a couple more good nights. Great picture of Bram.

    Honchey--great work on getting the mystery block exchange organized and set to go for March. I am good to start next month.

    It's nice to see everyone checking in regularly. This is going to be so much fun!

    Happy to hear BBs are still arriving every couple days too!! DH is making lunch today...grilling rib-eye steaks on this c-o-l-d day! A little crazy, but they will taste so good.

    QNSue ... Each month, Honchey will be letting each of us know who our intendeds are! She did state the dates that we will be notified. I'm not going to re-state them here, for fear that I have the dates wrong in my mind! So you have a little while to relax before you have to make decisions!

    Anael ... so precious!

    Please correct my confused mind, but if someone ask for the pineapple or court house steps and we post our block before mailing, isn't that a solved mystery and no surprise on whom it is for?

    Hey, Carrie, enjoy Des Moines for me too! If you have any extra time, will you visit a quilt shop or two?

    I have been 'window shopping' on internet this morning; back to www.quilterscache.com for her size "C" patterns...all 12 inch blocks...free, of course!....forgot about lunch time and what to fix, so will have to plan supper!

    QNS, You make a block. you send the block...the person receiving the block posts a photo of it and tells who made it...

    You will receive a block from someone that made it for you..you will then post a photo of the block you received and tell who made it for you...

    Neither you nor anyone else tells who they have while making or waiting to mail the block..You have to wait until the block has been received then it can be discussed here...
    I hope this explains it better....if not ...Help!!!!!
