    Anael--when I saw the kitty fabric I thought of your kitty, so that is why I picked that one out. Too funny he has already claimed the box! Good pictures of the babies...glad to hear they are doing well.

    Honchey--fun blocks. Lots of projects keeps life in the sewing room exciting....right?

    Hey Ya'll!
    I'm so excited for the twins. My prayers are still goin' out for ya. Such milestones.
    Tears o' mixed emotions!
    As for the homemade glue my brain is workin' overtime. I've got some ideas about it. They are all only half formed so I'm not gonna write 'em down till I work 'em out.
    PCMC is gonna be so much fun. I'm still workin' on ideas.

    I'm so frustrated w/myself! I keep forgittin' what I wanted ta say & post away.
    I meant ta tell
    Anael how lovely the flannel. Carrie Ya did a great job pickin' it 'em out. I sent the jungle amimals & sure hope there is enough for ya ta do somethin' with. It is already prewashed & there is no fabric softener on it. It might have some Best Press on it. I don't remember if I pressed it before I cut it or after. My Great Nephew has a large blanket out 'o it.

    A little late here this morning but what a sight to see. Pics of the SewGrands--oh I like the sound of that--and a Thank the Lord shout out.
    Sorry that we sent so much work for Oma to do!! All that lovely fabric; the SewGrands will be decked out in style. When I made preemie clothes for GNiece 17 years ago; I told the parents to keep what they wanted for keepsakes; but they were welcome to pass on the clothes to another little one in the unit. Some tiny ones don't have the luxury of a sewing Oma. The 3 fabrics I sent are washed with no scented soap and no fabric softeners. Ready to sew. Oh and found a fourth piece that somehow got left behind here. Thanks for the send off Carrie.
    Honchey--love your postage stamp. I've been working on a 1 1/2" 9P from squares from a board swap. Here's a link
    http://www.quiltingboard.com/picture...-a-t42414.html
    Like you have many sewing "irons" in the fire! Every once in a while when I want to mindlessly sew I pull them out. I can lay 4 9P's on the 12+" piece of tablecloth. Make for good leaders and enders too.
    QE--Just thinking on the homemade spray--you wouldn't have the odor issues and any residue that falls outside the designated area would be cleaned up easily with soap and water. I'll check on farm animal patterns.
    Lost in translation QNS and Anael? Anael I can see a Dutchman with a stern look on his face going; arms crossed in front of his body; saying "Ahem". I know a couple of them!
    Gotta dash--QBuddies and I are sewing today. I have to pick out fabric for our little project. So fun for us all.
    Very cold and windy yesterday with a little snow blowing. Mid teens today and sunny; but be prepared for a big blast on Thursday. It's the tail of the "I'll believe it when I see it" storm heading QNS's way first.
    Don't worry spider.
    I keep house
    casually.

    Honchey, thanks for the lovely gift! Such nice spring colours!
    QuiltE, thanks for your gift too. I love it, now to think of what to do with it. I want to keep it

    Oksewglad, I know what kind of Dutchman you mean. I know a few of them too
    In the UMC in Utrecht the nurses were excited about Isa's snuggle. They've never seen one like that. There are no SewOma's over there I guess! As far as I know I'm the only sewing Oma of the NICU in Zwolle where Bram and Isa are.
    Carrie, I love the kitty flannel and I'm sure my DDIL will too. And my kitty, she claimed the box as soon as it was empty
    Bev, I'm sure I can make lots of nice things with your jungle flannel! I keep going back to the pile and keep patting it I'm so happy with what you all sent, it's beautiful. Don't worry about scented soap or Best Press, my DDIL has to wash everything again before she takes it with her to the NICU.
    I asked my DDIL what she wants to do with the smocks once Bram and Isa outgrow them. She doesn't know yet. I told her she could donate them to the NICU. I could make a quilt with them too. It's up to her.
    I already cut out two smocks from the purple flannel with butterflies One tiny one and one a bit larger.
    Eat, quilt, sleep, repeat

    Anael...happy dance at your house and we are dancing with you here. Such good news of the twins! I'm glad you like the fabric. Carrie did an outstanding job for all of us. Thanks, Carrie! Loved the pictures of the little ones and the blessings of your beautiful stitching. I bet there isn't another baby in the unit that is better dressed than Isa and Bam.
    QuiltE....don't scare the postman. They don't like stalkers but I can certainly appreciate your distress from not getting your BBs yet.
    headeds and leaders have kind of gotten lost in my sewing room. I moved the box off of the table by my sewing machine when I started working with borders and joining rows just to make more room for what I was sewing. I have to do something different. Today I'm putting borders on the M&M BOM that I finished in December. I just found out that there is a local longarmer that is very reasonable which I want to try out ASAP.

    Honchey ... And what ran thru my mind was, why should you think you should be any different than the rest of us? Sometimes we need a break from all our other irons! Sometimes I want to sew, and am just not in the zone for a specific project, so off to the other! And a sure sign why many of us have PhDs! Your film idea is great and I'll look forward to your progress. Just thinking ... does the modern generation know what film is, anymore?

    OKSGlad ... SewGrands ... I like it! I'm just hesitant with the non-proven glue, I guess! I'll let some of you prove it for me and then I'll be a Johnny-Come-Lately and then be saying, why didn't I take the brave step? Have FUN with your QBuddies today. What is today's project?

    Anael ... Sew happy that you are pleased! And good that kitty got a new toy too!! You are supposed to KEEP it! Have some fun with it, or for now, just enjoy the sentiments, until the time is better for you. I think you might have found a new mission, as a PreemieSewOma! Here's to progress for the SewGrands!!

    GGal ... I sometimes wonder if they posties are keeping my goodies!! And now Anael has her 2nd parcel too! Leaders and Enders never won my favour, I just stitch onto a scrap piece of fabric each time and that way I don't have to be careful how I stitch or what length of stitch I am in. However, with my 6600 I find I don't even need to do that most of the time. No doubt, sometime I will try L/E and wish I had not been so tardy. Look forward to seeing your MMBOM!



    PP Patterns ... Thanks Ladies for checking your patterns. Any farm animals. I have some now, but would like a few more. And might even replace some of the ones I have, if a better one comes up. It could be just a head shot or a full body. I know they will not be totally real, but anything better than totally funky would be nice! Size, preferably 8", but that isn't an issue. My new printer is a real joy as I can blow it up or shrink it down. I'm SO glad I spent the extra moo-la! Thank you! Thank you!! Thank you!!!

    I do have a bunny, cat, baby chick and lamb but they're not easy. Lots and lots of pieces. I'm still looking in my files to see if I do have more designs.

    And you think after FWS and PC that lots of pieces scare me?

    QuiltE, the muslin is on its way to you. Sent today; might have it in five to seven days from now. Have Noah's ark of animals in pp, so will get some together for you....puppies, kitties and elephants, too. maybe a cow or two....sheep, I have.''

    Honchey, love your sewing; looks so old fashioned like they used to do in former times.

    Love the pictures, Anael, of the twins and the fabric and the cat. Being raised Southern Baptist, they say "Ahem, Amen,,,,,,!" a lot. But after your comment, I realized it was a language break down in communication; glad we were able to figure that one out. I do often put my 'foot' in my mouth, as we say here, when we do say something that the other person receives it wrong...and not the way it was intended to be.

    Carrie will post your letter on Tuesday when I go to town again. did not have your address with me today...I think you did a great, wonderful job in mailing out to all of us, and getting the flat rate so reasonable. PO at Centerville had never heard of such a rate, their was higher...starting at $5.00 and up.

    Weathermen have amended their story now; tonight and tomorrow some snow flurries, Thursday night or Friday, Freezing rain, followed in 24 hours by the BIG snow storm of 12 to 16 inches. And I am going to grown six foot tall then next day. Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow....was my winter decoration at the job in Corpus Christi for twenty some years; so the year we were retiring and moving North, it snowed on Christmas Day about 12 inches, for the first time in 100 years!! Never underestimate the power of a woman!! Will keep everyone posted.

    Done going now until Tuesday. Got home and DH wanted me to make Chili, so I did then ate late lunch and got on the computer. Sew Time...finally!!

    Wow Bev, you've got some lovely fabrics! How wonderful of Sue to send you this!
    Your block is great

    Some very good news on Bram: for the first time the test of his mucus came back negative for fungus. More negative testresults are needed but it's a start!
    We know as long as they're in unit 1 on the NICU they're still in critical condition and things can go wrong any time. But for now we're happy they're doing so well.

    QNS, I'm glad we sorted our language problem out!

    QuiltE, did I scare you? I've never seen PP patterns with so many pieces!

    Wow I go to sleep and the chatter comes thick and fast.....

    Honchey I love your blocks, I am doing something similar, mine will be put together in a design that appeared in the new Quilting Quickly magazine. It is a Jenny Dorn design from Missouri Quilt Co. There is probably a you-tube video of it.

    Anael, what beautiful photos I just want to give them a big hug and I love your embroidered sheets, you will certainly be kept busy with all that beautiful flannel you received.

    QuiltE, no BB's for me yet I am happy for everyone to reveal their little treasures, the race is on but I am sure your postie will deliver before mine Sorry I don't have any animal patterns...

    What a wonderful group you are to have organised and sent those beautiful flannels to Anael, give yourselves a star.

    QNS I hope you stay safe during the storm and don't get too much snow.

    Dublb love your block and that nautical fabric is fabulous

    I prefer the 505 spray glue and over here it is $16 a can, oops heard a few of you falling off your chairs I use it very very sparingly.

    At this stage I think I will be making the 6 inch blocks but in my colourway, should be interesting to see how we put these quilts together.

    I certainly have been missing my "little" blocks so decided to start another leader and ender project, these are 4 inch stars. I have made 18 so far, but need a couple of hundred This is the end of my fabric chain, if I can't get the units for a star it is in the bin.

    Have a wonderful day, I am going to start quilting Daughters Card Tricks quilt today, so definitely putting the aircon on early

    They're here! They're here!! They're here!!!

    Though you probably already knew that .... after hearing me scream while I was at the post office this afternoon. OK I'll fess, I did a silent scream while in the building, but yes, there was a shriek of delight when I got to my truck!!

    On my way thru the snow and blow and slippery roads, including a detour thanks to my road being closed right now, I was thinking ... they'd better be there!! And they were!

    I couldn't wait to get home and open them up. CarrieM had them sealed all too well for me to rip into them in the truck.

    Oooooooooooohhhh they're so beautiful.
    You Ladies, really did out-do yourselves and I can't believe how well they all go together, without any collusion. And yes, as I was doing the first look thru and petting every one, the tears welled in my eyes!

    I am SO excited and can't wait to decide what to do with them ... I keep saying, no action, til I get all my PC blocks done!!

    I know that I am blessed with such wonderful friends. THANK YOU, ONE AND ALL!!!!!

    Now ......... off to read all the posts since I was last here!

    DublB ... you've got a great new block and some nice new fabrics to work with.

    Anael
    ... Such good news about our SewGrands!

    QNSue ... you are such a wonderful person with a ♥ of gold! Thanks for getting the muslin for me. I'll then hgave it for comparison should I find it here. Noah's Ark ... really? **happy dance**

    MiraB ... for you that your BBs have not arrived. I was sure you would have them now, as I know yours arrived to Carrie within the week. Maybe tomorrow? As CarrieM hinted earlier ... yours is SO MiraB! BTW 505 is about the same price here too. OMG that is going to make for a beautiful quilt!

    I so move ... that we keep to our agreement ... no BBs be posted till all are received.
    Do I have a seconder?

    I have just finished catching up on e-mails (should have been in the sewing room by now) and guess what !!! Quilting on the Square has released 6 bonus Compass Blocks. They are free and I have just finished downloading them to my computer. Wow they look great too. On other Quilting on the Square news they are releasing a new free BOM on March 1st so we had better check out that one too. A girl can't have too many projects lined up
    Now I just heard my postied so will be right back no just my annual eye check up reminder.. Well tomorrow is another day or my parcel delivery man is running late as he is normally here before 8 in the morning

    This is what is on my design wall, I remember posting a pic of my embroidered butterflies, well I made 21 and spent a whole day cutting fabric and putting it up on the wall only to sit back and go yuck I hate it...So this is actually the second layout. I have run out of the background fabric so had to order more ( and cause I always like to fill a post bag had to order more yummy fabric). I would like to have it finished by the end of March for my DD's 30th birthday. Gee I am feeling old, when did my baby grow up

    Mirabelle - that is beautiful, I know your DD will just love it (who wouldn't)!!!

    Congrats on getting the BB QuiltE - they are just spectacular! Hopefully Mirabelle will get hers tomorrow!

    Isn't it just so wonderful how "things" move us to tears (the SewGrands and seeing the work everyone did on the BB)!

    MiraB .... such a beauty in the making. Your scrappy Irish Chains are perfect with the butterflies.

    Now MrPostman ... bring MiraB her BBs ........ and her background fabric.



    BTW ... I struck it lucky today ... look at what else arrived in the mail ...............

    Another chatty day for you ladies

    Dublb--I like your new block and what great nautical fabrics.

    QNS--you have a great stash and it is so nice of you to share so generously with everyone!!!

    Mirabelle--pretty 4" blocks, but I really like the butterfly quilt!

    QE--thanks for sharing pictures of your flowers...oh and the thread too.

    I was able to finish quilting the blocks on my PC quilt today. I will start borders tomorrow. If we get the "big snow" Thursday afternoon/evening I'll just *have to* stay home and keep sewing. "They" keep changing numbers right now it is 5-7", so we shall see how much we actually get.

    I have been busy today doing "retreat" prep stuff...we do a secret sister exchange, so I had to collect those, draw numbers and then send out names/info to the right people. It is one of those jobs that seems easy at first, but then you have to keep checking especially when sending in emails and not printing out...it would be bad to send the same person to two different people and end up with someone not getting any gifts! I would feel awful!! Getting food/menus in order, etc, etc. Glad to have the gifts almost done. Always nice to check something else off the list....

    They're the smaller size spools, ordered from Tristan in British Columbia.
    It was a treat to myself ... one of those from me to me gifts ... appropriately on Valentine's Day!

    I like variegateds in quilting and have had such a hard time getting colours when I want them. So when I saw the tray on sale, I phoned and inquired as I could see the variegateds and wondered how many? They said they would put together a tray for me of mostly variegateds and emailed a pic for approval. I was more than pleased!!

    I know they ship international ... and from what I've seen on the QB, still reasonable for you to consider, MiraB.
    I also got six of the large size spools in a basic beige for piecing ... less than half what I pay locally (including shipping)!
    http://www.tristan.bc.ca/news.html

    BTW I have ordered from them before and their customer service has been above par! So I am sure they will take very good care of you.


    CarrieM ... You and Honchey will be able to share "war stories" of doing lucky draws all by yourself and emailing the results! Should we all do a "snow dance" so you can batten the hatches and "force" yourself to snow all day?
