    She's 2.43 lb now! She's so beautiful! Bram is a bit behind but gained weight also, he's 2.01 lb now. He started at 1.21 lb so he's doing ok too. He's not allowed to wear anything yet besides a diaper and a hat.

    Here is the block that I did last night.

    I went back ta my old favorite 10 min block. I did do a few changes. I used the first 4 blocks & put the center block in. I also added the centers ta give it a more traditional cathedral window look. I was gonna add the triangles ta the outer seams so that it would have really looked like a cathedral window but I couldn't git the math right. (I'm not a math person. I also cut the back pieces out.

    Now I am just going to have a quiet moment by myself to open the package and savour the delights. Let the show and tell begin.
    Thank you so much for waiting until mine arrived, I tried to bribe someone into letting me see a peek but they wouldn't budge no telling my lips are sealed

    Dublb, throw that block toward my way; I like it. I also like the replacement you did!

    Mirabelle, did you thank the Postman? So happy you have received you BBs....now we wait for Honchey to signal us to post our BBs, I guess.

    Anael, when you get old, you have aches and pains by the score...washed dishes in hot water and hands feel better...just an achy head and knees now...sinus problems do tend to get me down a bit. Cannot stand loud noises and dh cannot hear, so he talks so loud...and insists on attention at his every wish & demand. Baked 3 loaves of Oatmeal Bread, and made two pies...apricot and apple, for this week.

    Yippee Ti Yo! BB's are all in their rightful homes!
    Although little Isa in her new clothes is a scene stealer! Those NICU nurses are so special to remember Mick's BD too!
    The replacement block is beautiful dublb. Sorry but it outshines the muddied block that you are replacing.
    QNS is it the up coming storm that's causing the sore hands etc. About noon today I started getting sore as well. I was trying to whipstitch some pieced battings together and ouch. Finished it but set aside the sewing for the day after that. Took some aspirin; 6 hours later much better but time for some more. My once a day Aleve is not working today. I find aspirin works quicker for me on days like today.
    And no QE no new little ones. These are blankets I promised myself to make for the NICU where Jackson was born. Every isolette had a full sized blanket draped over the isolette. It helps cut down on the bright light coming in on the newborns. Jackson then was able to take it home with him. So just fullfilling a promise I made to myself.
    Going to try to take a pic of the moon rising over the treetops. Looks so "purdy" tonight.

    Dublb--that is a pretty block! I haven't tried the "10-min block" before, but have watched a couple "how to" videos so I can try it some day.

    Anael--cute picture of Isa. I hope Mick had a great birthday.

    My oldest DD celebrated her 15th on the 22nd. Here is a picture of the cake she made...yellow cake, w/butter frosting (green food coloring), kit-kats around the outside and rolos on the top! Ever since our kids were little we made their cakes together instead of me baking a cake for them. Now they are all getting just about old enough to make their own!

    Can you tell me which book you are talking about, I love the block, always wanted to make a Cathedral Windows quilt but it seemed a lot of work. Watched a tutorial on here and I think they mentioned about 10 yards of background fabric.

    The book is called 10-Minute Blocks by Suzanne McNeill. She gives complete instructions, plus 7 different variations of the quilt. There are U-Tube videos on how to make it as well. She has a 2nd book out also, but I don't have it.

    Do we need an okay from Honchey? If not I will be the brave one. First off I'm sending a PDF of the blocks that I did and a little explanation on them. Then a couple of pics of the blocks received from you dear friends. First are the blocks in ABC order by board name. Second is my block and a Missouri block from QNS. Thank you one and all.Odds and Ends PC BB blocks.pdfName:  028.JPG

    FINALLY!!!!! Mirabelle has her blocks and now we are free to have some "Show & Tell"...
    DH & I celebrated our 45th Anniversary....He brought home Dunkin Donuts this morning...I sewed all day and we ordered in for dinner...nice quiet day & evening...This is the first time I'm on the cp today...there's loose thread all over the place from cleaning up the little squares from the swaps I've been participating in..you should see my lap & shirt right now..looks like someone dumped a pile of snow on me.
    Glad to hear the sewgrands are doing great...gaining weight & breathing better...

    Dublb, that's interesting the way your CW block is done...I've never seen that technique before...more please..

    QNS...years ago I broke my thumb skiing and had to have surgery to repair it..when doing PT they had me put my hand in hot dry oatmeal & move it around..it really felt good and the oatmeal doesn't dry out your skin...you could also use a heating pad....heat really does help...
    It's late and have to get my beauty rest but before I go I'm going to post a photo of how I had to keep the bblocks on paper plates because I wanted each of them to have different "little quilts"...


    Oksewglad.. Ohhhhh Brave One!!! the blocks look great..I haven't taken a photo of mine yet...They really look good together!!!

    Not a good photo but THEY"RE HERE and I love love love each and every one of them. Will I have good show and tell at patchwork on Thursday
    From the bottom of my heart thank you to everyone, there is a little piece of each of you in those blocks and I tear up every time I think of how we got to this moment in time.
    So not more tears, I have a mystery block to make...and I need my eyes
    QNS will use your state block for my label and list everyones name on it for prosperity.. and thank you for the extras how kind of you, but I have learnt that that is just you, kindness personified
