    OksewGlad, your Missouri guest picked a good weather day to show up!! Wonder where they are from, Columbia?

    Yes, DD, we are staying warm thanks to MFA who delivered our propane right before the storm. Animals are all under shelter and doing fine. What do you all do with the cows, OksewGlad?? Heated shed?

    Hope the other Iowans and everyone is doing fine, GrannyQ, Carrie, and JanRN in Pennsylvania, Honchey on the East coast...Canadian neighbors, too, probably are all wishing they were visiting California and Texas like I am???

    Great news on our SewGrands Anael, and really darling hats and smocks you are making. You have been one very busy grandma with all that sewing. The babies must be so comfy in all that soft flannel!

    Anael ... ooooh chocolate! Yes, I am sure the loss of the NICU baby last night would be hard on all of you, and make you all the more happy as to how well the SewGrands are doing. And look at all the sewing you have been doing for them and their BIG brother! Sew Cute! Too long of a day today, so no more births in the barnyard!

    JanieW ... so good to know you are back! What a great DH you have ... I remember you saying how he was the one who nudged you over the edge and into the land of PC! Sweet that the other Grands miss you!

    OKSGlad ... hope the snoop troop liked what you had, and took the consignments! Now to wait and see how they do in the sale! ITA with your DH ... once we are thru February, the storms never seem to last so long. Kind of like, here today, and gone tomorrow. Not quite, but with the longer days, it seems gentler.

    DDamsel ... careful as you drool over that thread, or you won't be able to use it! I've built quite a nice little thread stash which I'm looking forward to having on hand, instead of needing to go shopping as it's needed. Hope all goes well in your home with all your extras. And hope it gives you more sewing time, instead of taking from it.

    Moi? ... as mentioned above no sewing for me today/tonight. Though after supper I did sit down to calculate how much fabric I might need for our BB Quilt! I pulled out a few pieces from my stash this morning to get an idea as to what might work, and what might not. Now I will know if any of them have enough ... or if I MUST go on a FART! Terrible thing, I know!

    Tomorrow/Saturday off to an auction with a few dairy items ... so long as the weather holds. It's been kind of iffy today, off and on ... and uncertain about overnight and tomorrow.

    Til after the sale .......... Toodles for now!

    Another day w/goodnews about the Sewgrands! Is it just me, but are the goodnews days gittin' ta be more than the bad news days?
    I had sew much ta say tanight ta each o' ya & have forgotten it all. I guess I'm a bit tired.
    I went ta the "Sit N Sew" taday. As I left I grabbed a ziplock baggie w/a PC block in it. When I got there I realized that it was missin' a piece. I haven't opened it since last fall. I was able ta git most o' it done. I sure hope that I find that other piece, 'cause I don't want ta have ta cut another one.
    While there I bought some black ta use w/my BB's. I will cut it inta 8" blocks & set 'em checkerboard style. #2Dson is gonna draw a celtic knot for me ta hand quilt in these black blocks. I guess I need ta make myself a BB just like what I sent ya'll ta make the # o' blocks work out. I also picked out..............color o' fabric ta make..............'s mystery block. 4 FQ's'll do it

    It's not just you Bev, there's more good days than bad days.
    Isa was taken off the ventilator yesterday afternoon and is breathing on her own. She had a quiet night. Bram is doing ok too. We're still waiting for the testresults. The nurses can't say anything but last night they told my DS the doctors expect the test to be negative too. That would be another celebration!!! Tonight the SewGrands will be 5 weeks old! I realized last night Bram will have doubled his birthweight within a few days from now or he even might have already! Isn't that a wonderful achievement?

    Ok is someone keeping tabs on me.... 18 hours since I made an appearance I have been busy stitching in the ditch on DD's Card Tricks, wow were there a lot of seams. Used 6 bobbins, it will have to wait for the free motion quilting as I have other things that need to be done.

    This afternoon DS took me to the movies and we saw Hansel and Gretel --- not bad --- then home to feed the dogs and I made us an omelette and salad for dinner. DH rang me after dinner to check in, there is a big storm about to hit the mine site so they have to shut down the pit..

    Great news on the twins Anael.

    No BB's for me, will have to wait until Monday to start stalking the postman again don't worry girls you will probably hear me squeal when they arrive, or my neighbours will think I have lost the plot..

    Anael...continuing good news....and such beautiful little smocks and hats! Mick will have a hard time deciding which side of the pillow to use.
    OK...20 fewer mouths to feed. That can be good. Your herd has a good reputation to be sought out for consignment. Potatoe soup sounds good.
    DD...your sound like you are way out in the country. Reminds me of when I was growing up. There were just certain times of the year we could count on walking. No 4 wheel drives then!
    Jeanie....hats off to you for getting your beautiful Easy Street done! Mine is in the drawer. I have the PC to finish borders and binding and then another UFO in my design wall to out together before I get to it. I'm trying real hard to do a better job of finishing things up this year.
    Mirabelle...I guess I'm so new to quilting that I never considered FM after doing stitch in the ditch. And yes....we do keep track of each other although I've never gone to the hours missing.
    QNS...you hens are good producers which tells me that your DH gives them exceptional care.
    Dubib...hope you found the piece to your block. I got home the other day and found I had cut one of my pieces wrong so have to start that block over. I love it when I get blocks cut ahead and I can spend time piecing...my very favorite activity!
    JanR...speaking of keeping track....haven't heard from you in a while. I trust you and yours are OK. Did your DM's house sell?
    Honchey...did you get the rain or snow from this last storm?
    QuiltE....aren't auctions fun? Don't freeze your feet for the outside part!
    we only got a light dusting of snow but then an ice storm so they shut the schools yesterday. Today the sun is shining and the roads are clear. This snow will melt in the next couple of days and be ready for more next week. Winter is slowly giving into spring here.

    The incubators were empty this afternoon meaning both were cuddled So they're stable otherwise no cuddling!

    It's quite windy here and so quite cold too. I only had to go out to get rid of my garbage, otherwise I'm in sewing! Tomorrow we celebrate Mick's 2nd birthday (it's on the 25th actualy). Can't believe he will be 2 years old! Time flies!!!
    I will let you know what he thinks of his new pillow.

    Hold on Bev, I got yours cut out last night and will stitch it together this morning before I go watch the kids skate and then throw it in the mail on Monday. Then you will have an even number!

    Hi to everyone else. I hope to have more time on here in the next couple of days so that I can make more than a generic , just flying by, comment!

    LOL I"m going to sleep mirabelle and where you are it's past breakfast time! I will give Mick a big cuddle from you!

    All is quiet in the NICU. Isa is still breathing on her own. Bram had a full diaper (with a little help) and is feeling fine now too. So here's to a quiet night!
    CU all tomorrow morning.

    GGal I have tried many different ways of quilting reasonably large quilts, start from the centre and work your way out to the edge, start on one side and work work way across the quilt, just pick a random area and work on that, but I always seemed to get puckers in the backing.. So now I spray baste my quilt and do all the stitch in the ditch work and voila no puckers, it now doesn't matter how long I take to do the free motion work everything is stitched in place and I get no movement. I can fold the quilt up and come back to when I have the time. Hope this helps

    ♪♪♫ Happy 5 Week Birthday SewGrands!!! ♫♪♪
    Anael ...
    They are doing so well ... keep growing babies! Such good news about today;s cuddle time. Have fun with Mick for his birthday party. He'll love his new pillow!

    MiraB ... good for you for a "date" with your son! I have no clue when the last time I was at a movie.

    DublB ... must be some Mystery Block you have planned ... 4 FQS!!

    DDamsel ... out of the mudpuddles?

    GGal ... no freezing today, as the sale was in a community hall! Mostly toy collectables and a lot of it was farm related. There were a few dairy bottles and collectables. I got 2 milk bottles, a milk siphon (straw affair, instead of needing a cream top bottle), and a grocery list (one of the things dairies used to give out, with little pull tabs as to what you needed at the store. Then to an antique mall and a few more things followed me home!

    GGal and MiraB ... No pro here like MiraB, but do much the same ... get things outlined first then go at the FMQ which to this point is usually stippling. I really need top learn some other FMQ styles! I make my sandwich by stretching the backing (more snug than a stretch), spray it good, batting, spray again, then top. Seems to hold pretty good and I haven't been getting puckers. xxxcross fingersxxx for it to continue!

    Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!!!

    No sewing tonight ... by the time I got home, had supper, returned phone calls, I decided to stay put. Instead printed a few more PC patterns ..........and ...... finished calculating how much fabric for my BBs. No, not going there yet, just getting prepared!!! After all, one needs to know such things, just in case some fabric starts jumping in their arms!

    As for me ... tomorrow/Sunday ... PLEASE kick me off the QB if you see me ... my plan is a marathon quilting session. I am SO wanting to finish my PC blocks before the end of the month, and that is Thursday!!!

    Anael - Another goodnews day! I'm still prayin'.
    I went ta garage sales w/my DSis taday. This is the one that I sometimes don't git along with. We had a good day but I was afraid that she was gonna turn on me. Thank God that she didn't. He answers those prayers also. When I got home I was so tired that I didn't want ta do anything. I decided that I wasn't gonna let her affect my attitude & I made my self git up & make the last yellow & blue block. I'll post the pict tamarrow.

    Isa had a quiet night. Bram was a bit restless and felt uneasy. The nurses had to suck out his mucus a few times because he was a bit angry and sad but after that he fell asleep and had a quiet night also!
    They're still in Unit 1 meaning unstable and critical but it looks like we're getting there!

    Just checking in quick before getting ready for church...we didn't end up with too much snow (maybe 5"). No ice here and it was beautiful yesterday and looks to be another nice winter day today too. I was able to get borders on my PC quilt the binding is sewn together and pressed. I might get it on today, but may have to wait until Tuesday since kids have archery practice this afternoon and I work Monday.

    Sounds like good news on the twins...praising God for that. I am sure parents and grandparents are sleeping a little better these days.

    Better be getting kids up...

    Good morning SewGrands-keep the good days coming. I don't know of any little kid that likes having the mucus suctioned out!
    Wonderful progress on the PC quilt Carrie.
    I've been working on some UFO baby quilts. One down; one ready to quilt and about 4 getting to that stage. Red and black are great colors (as well as colors with high contrast) for wee ones as it's very stimulating. These have those colors in them.

    Checking in ... before I head off to my little Shangri-La!
    Really need to make headway if I want to make my self-imposed deadline of Thursday!!!!!!!!!
    Like the Little Engine That Could .... I think I can ... I think I can ... I think I can ..................


    DublB
    ... good for you, one more block done ... and what are you doing with it?

    Anael ... sometimes I wish I could have someone deal with that darned mucus, so lucky Bram! After that he felt so much better and slept easily!

    DDamsel ... oh dear for you not going to your other son's reception! Yeaaa for the quilt show and your multi-FARTs! YES!!! you do need to go back for the other fabric ... before you are stuck in the mud again!

    CarrieM ... you're really trotting along on PC!

    OKSGlad ... so are there reasons for these little quilts getting done? Babies on their way?

    Have a great Sunday, everyone!
    I know, I am planning on that!!!!

    Let it snow; let it snow; we need that moisture. Guess the Guy upstairs heard me, 'cause we are going to get snow again Tuesday...that's the day we gotta get to town and Wednesday gotta get the chickens more feed. But if its just the four inches, major roads will remain open.

    Hands are hurting so bad may not get any sewing done. Dh kneaded the bread this morning. Bf used recipe and made four loaves of bread on Friday for them to use...her dh loved it. Dh still has the chili to eat; plus chicken and noodles fixed also, so not much cooking to do in the kitchen. Some wold regard our life as boring right now, but I am thankful for the quiet times and getting to rest up before we have to go anywhere or do anything. Peaceful. Peace to all of you; have a *good* day and week!
