    Mirabelle--I got the new quilting on the square blocks...thanks for letting us know. I thought I had signed up for their newsletter, but haven't gotten one, so signed up (again)? I will watch for the new BOM next month too.

    QuiltE I checked out the website for the thread, I put the box of thread and another 6 thread pack into my cart but the postage was $88 so I then took out the 6 thread pack and the postage was $55, still a little too high..which is a pity as I would have bought them.
    I might contact them to see if they would just put the thread into a post bag without the packaging. Will let you know the outcome...

    MiraB ... Yikes! I know our postage is high, and that thread is pretty heavy, but $88/$55 worth? YIKES again! There isn't much packaging, so that's not going to make a big difference. Try giving Jonathan at [email protected] an email to question if the auto calculator was correct, or if there's a less costly way of shipping to you. BTW there's some way that I can get a credit for referring you to them, so if you'd please do so, I'd really appreciate it!. Are you using Aurifil now? or any of their other brands? I'm definitely an Aurifil convert!

    QuiltE I have just sent them an e-mail where I did tell them that their website had been recommended to me by a friend in Canada, so if they can reduce the shipping costs will definitely put your name down as a referral. Yes I have used Aurifil before but unfortunately I can't buy it locally, usually put a couple of spools in with my order at Hancocks but they haven't had free shipping for quite a while I keep a very close eye on their website

    I get 30 yards of fabric from the States for $45 and thats quite heavy, surely thread doesn't weight that much

    I'm making the most beautiful snuggles you've ever seen

    Update on Bram and Isa: Isa is doing ok. She came back yesterday and my DDIL told me she looked around like she wanted to say: happy to be back LOL
    They tried to do a procedure on Bram to 'soften' the mucus but his condition got so bad so rapidly they had to stop. Otherwise he's ok too.
    We know their condition still is very unstable and they're still critical, things can go very wrong in a heartbeat but we're happy with how they are doing now.

    Such a beautiful photo of your son and his son, oh my gosh I am crying. I'm praying that things continue to improve and both Bram and Isa are soon out of danger. I know it will be a long road to travel for them and I hold them in my prayers every night.

    Maybe try again ... I sent them an email last night and so far it hasn't come back.
    I hope you can get them to figure out something!
    As for rates ... USA postage is notoriously less than our Canadian rates!

    Mirabelle....I just put the 66 spool special and 6 1300 meter spools in my shopping cart and the postage was $20.13. I need to get some more neutral for piecing. I'm down to my last spool. Your quilt is stunning and even your leader Enders are so very well done. I rearranged a little yesterday and now mine are in a drawer right by my sewing table. Got to get get back at them.
    Quilte....if you tell me how much your package weighed, I can get an estimate for postage from US to Queensland. Just maybe we can get it affordable for Mirabelle to use our favorite thread.
    Anael...got your message and did another happy dance. So glad the Sewgrands are stabilizing. How wonderful that your DS had a chance to cuddle with Bram. Such an important step in his new life!
    Dubib...your fingers will be busy for awhile. Love your block
    QNS...your stash is like a quilt store! Is there any mind of fabric that you don't have?
    Carrie...I know you will enjoy the retreat but it sounds like there is a lot of work on your part.
    Jeanie...are you all done with the flimsy of Easy Street? Mine is still waiting.
    I did get the borders done on my M&M BOM yesterday. Just have to get the backing prepared and to the longarmer. Laundry, haircut and finishing a valance for a friend today. She finally bought the curtain rods last weeks so I know it's time!

    GGal ... if you're ordering the 66 spools, call them and check on the colours. When I talked to them, it sounded as though they were just making them up as ordered, and not as pictured. I thought you'd been ordering from Tristan too.

    Now wouldn't that be something if you could ship from BC to Indiana then Aus for less than direct! I thought of ordering and shipping to you, MiraB but I know that Tristan will have a corporate rate, so if anything will be able to ship for less than I could. Besides, they are closer to you, so should also be less!

    GGal, from what I've seen posted in other threads, I think your new rates are more in line with what ours are. I just checked their site and the 66 tray is 2.0 lbs and 6 large spools are 1.2 lbs. If you click on the more details, it has the weights noted. My postage was $22.04. The 66 are actually at a higher per metre cost than the individual spools, though to me it was worth it to get such an assortment, then I can make my notes and know what to order. The choice of variegateds locally is very poor. Good Luck!

    Hello All

    It is so nice to take a break from life and get up here and see what all my friends are up to!!!

    I have had a lousy couple of days... sigh! the sun came out and melted ALL of the snow at once! DhSon and Wife got stuck AGAIN and I couldnt even pull the car out with my suburban... it took a couple of days to dig it out by shovel, and then I got an emergency call from my sister and had to leave just about sunset and got stuck in the mud and had to go find a shovel in the dark, good thing we have a couple of handy boys, they both grabbed shovels and helped! so I guess I dont get to tease them about getting the car stuck then I get to my sisters house... sounds like she is getting divorced, I will be busy the next couple of weeks for sure, probably setting up a room for her and her daughter.

    QuiltE dose Tristan ship UPS? or what??? Dh has the UpsMan cell phone number in his phone... we are ALWAYS getting our packages LOST, delivered to some odd address, today I have to drive over to the local dairy and pick up a package that was missdelivered OH the JOYS of country life!

    finger crossed! that I can drive down the driveway today! a girl has to buy grocerys sometime
    Candace is Deranged
    so many babies.. sew little quilts

    DD, here is wishing you a good day; bf was stocking up her supplies in case of snow, and met another lady at the candy counter also stocking up with chocolate so they could deal better with their dhs!! and d did not mean dear at that moment!

    Good news, Anael, keeping it coming on; lovey picture of your son and his son together. I have to remind myself how large the twins are, and I think of a 10 pound bag of sugar, and the twins are 1/5 of that package of sugar!! Wow. Miracle babies. Stories you all will have to tell them as they grow up.

    GardenGal, did not understand your expression "mind of fabric" maybe it was kind of fabric??? I have knit cottons in my closet inherited from almost grandmother-in-law... (she died at 94, after FIL and she had 23 good years together, at that age no one was about to 'make them' marry) patriotic fabric to do the year 2000 in a quilt; oh, dear, that year has passed on and no design to make one yet! Bird quilt with lots of flying geese dh started before that year of 2000; the second Blackbeard's patterned quilt, second one, before that; first one was so holey I threw it away or it got thrown away when we moved to Padre Island. Dacron white cotton by the bolt; marbled fabric from a quilt store going out of business sale and the bolts I have ordered for background fabric. Cannot believe that I am on the second bolt of black Kona and it is going faster than I can believe!! And I inherited or was gifted the well selected rainbow of colors of batiks...sent Jeanie a five inch sample of all of it...so she can tell you about the variety of colors! Thanks to you, my dh is happy with very warm feet!! And that makes me happy 'cause he is diabetic and foot care is essential for him.

    Discovered propane tank was near empty last night, but they filled it early this morning, so let it snow! We need the moisture for spring...it is around the corner, just not soon enough for me.

    QNS, funny you mention this as I always tell people to take one kilo of sugar and that's how much each of them is now. When Bram was born he was only half of that!

    They were doing well today, the usual small problems, nothing to worry about. They both have been out of the incubator this afternoon, Isa with DS and Bram with DDIL. And again for all four of them first times!

    Here you go gardnergal, this is the flimsy of my Easy Street Quilt. It is a little too busy for me, wished I had used a solid instead of the busy black on white!

    Nice job, JeanieG. Very nice. And it is finished, which to me is a big plus. It is easy to 'start' a project than to finish it.

    Jeanie, lovely! You're very brave, I wouldn't finish a project like this! Too many tiny pieces
    It's busy but not too busy. Lovely colours too.

    DerangedDamsel such a funny image in my head of your vehicles getting stuck in the mud, hope you made it to the grocery store.

    GGal and QuiltE thank you for thinking of me in regards to the threads, I will just have to keep Googling to find alternative supplier and less shipping..

    JeanieG I love your Easy Street quilt top, sometimes it does us good to step outside our comfort zone, Bonnie's quilts are certainly a challenge with lots of pieces but definitely make a statement.

    Anael I was putting my groceries away on Tuesday and I picked up 2 tubs of butter, 500 grams each and I stopped and instantly thought of Bram and Isa. Good news keeps coming, how special that your DS and DDIL both got to cuddle their precious babies.
