    So I took out my embroidery machine and I'm going to make a winter quilt for my grandson. I have to do something and I don't want to make quiltblocks right now.
    Honesty re the realities is important from the Dr ... but OUCH how it must sting for all.

    ITA good therapy for you right now will be something FUN for your DGS.
    Did you see these? ... perhaps a project for you to make for him?

    Those pillow cases are sooooooo cute I first have to figure out how your pillow cases work, they're quite different from what we use here.
    I embroidered one design and the machine is working on the second one while I write this!

    I saw them the other day and thought of you, your DGS and your embroidery capabilities!

    Here you be for the basics ......

    and of course a gazillion youtube videos
    http://www.google.ca/search?sourceid...e+pillow+cASES

    Though, why worry how we do it ... do it the way you normally would, and add on the embroidery!

    I'm guessing your way has the flap end fold that kind of keeps the pillow inside?

    So ... do the embroidery in the middle of the pillow top, then frame it up with some Christmas print.

    Bev & Anael, thinking of you both. Everyone here has been a great help to me this year--let us help you, too. Prayers/positive vibes, whichever you believe in are on the way. Keep us updated.

    Question for GGal: I have the 50 Fabulous Stars (Carol Doak) and love them. Did you order the CD that prints the patterns/foundations? I'm thinking about it; makes it so much easier than standing at the copier (at work LOL) and copying all those patterns. I really wish the books came with a CD; I'd gladly pay more for the book if it came with the CD instead of ordering it and paying additional postage. If you have it, is it worth ordering? Also, does the CD let you re-size the patterns? I'd rather do them at 8" or 6" than 12". Also, if we do one a fortnight (my new favorite word!) it would take 2 years to do all the blocks. I really like them though.

    EQ is having a good sale today. I ordered Karen K. Stone's MORE Quilts. On sale for for EQ but it comes in book form, too. Check this one out as a possible future group project. Lots of variety-NY Beauty and Pickle Dish type patterns. I also looked at Carol Doak's Mariner's Compass book. Nice, too. Do you think we have enough suggestions that we'll be quilting together for the next 10 years? I hope so!!!!

    Jan, I'm not planning on leaving in the near future. Guess you guys are stuck with me for a few more years
    I have the 50 Fabulous Stars too, without CD and I don't think I will order it. It would be easier, I agree but I can copy the patterns at home. I started her Mystery Blocks from her Yahoo Group. First time ever I made a Carol Doak block
    Eat, quilt, sleep, repeat

    Jan, I purchased that Carol Doak book quite a few years ago and it has a cd in it. it also has the patterns that can be copied...I never loaded the cd so I don't know if it has the patterns on it also... I'll have to dig it out..it's in the attic somewhere...

    There is a group started or starting Carol Doan's 50 pp stars now on QB so we may not get permission for our group to do it...

    Hello--for my demo today only 3 came to see it. The LQS owner thought it was probably just the wrong time of year...it hits Dec 1st and people are suddenly thinking they have to get ready for Christmas NOW. She said we may try again after the first of the year. I was a little bummed, but was able to help some around the shop doing things and also got the fabric I needed for different projects.

    Anael and Bev--sorry to hear about the hard times right now. Thinking of you...

    I think maybe a smaller project than the 50 stars might be good, then we can work on our UFOs in the time between new blocks. If we want to do stars, the site that Mirabelle suggested would be a good one. We can do it as one block a month or fortnight....if we do 2 a month, then it would only take 6 months and maybe some more of us would be caught up with our PC quilts (and other stuff) and be ready for something else. However whatever is decided...big or small...I will be here...just my thoughts.

    I'm home. They finally got us a sitter. Now that I'm home, I'm wired. It'll be a bit before I git sleepy. DMIL is a bit fretful th'sevenin'. Better than lethargic. One day at a time.
    Anael I'm prayin' for al 3 o' your grandbabys.

    Hang in there dublb! I know what you are going through. You need your rest though, so find something to help you relax and get your sleep.

    Sorry, Carrie, that so few showed up for your demo...after working so hard preparing for it. Holidays have hit everyone, maybe next time it will have a far better turn out. Any 4-Hers or similar groups that might come in as a group to see it?? Maybe if there is holiday hand-food there, like a cookie with recipe...'cause quilters cook.

    Dublb, hang in there, day by day. What will be, will be, but we are all here for you.

    Anael, we are thinking of you, too, with prayers and hope that all will be well with the triplets. Medical science has been amazed at miracles more than once and we are hopeful our prayers will work that miracle.

    Jeanie, tell how nice your weather is in California; and Dublb, tell me how nice it is in Texas...it is so foggy and wet and cold here...I need sunshine!!

    Hot chicken noodle soup and broth! It helps, even medical science agrees... and all the love and care that you are giving to her also helps...but do find time to relax and treat yourself a special relaxing time also!!

    Sorry QNS, we have had this drizzly rain for the past few days. Temperatures have been nice - mid to high 60's the last few days, but today it is in the low 60's. It is suppose to clear up tomorrow (yeah). We have had almost an inch of rain, we really needed it!

    We've had wonderful weather! Up in the mid 70's & lows in the lower 50's or upper 40's. I've been pined up in a cooooold hospital.
    I did finish my another o' my GFG flowers. Then I couldn't do anymore 'cause I didn't have any more pressed. (I prefer ta soak 'em in starch & press 'em around the cardboard. That way I can take the cardboard out when I need ta.) Yesterday afternoon I ran across the street ta Hancock's & bought a travel iron, so yesterday evenin' & taday I have pressed enough hex's ta make 4 more flowers. I'll be able ta work on 'em tamarrow.
    DMIL has been diagnosed w/double pneumonia, now. I do have some good news. I got 'em ta provide her w/pureed food & she ate half o' her supper. She even griped at me like she normally does while she eats.

    My kitty and the Christmas Quilt.
    Remember my FMQ problem? See post # 155. I had to take my kitty to the vet this morning, she was scratching herself to pieces. Some allergic reaction, we don't know what triggered it. Now I had to remove my Christmas Quilt from the living room That might be the problem. And I had to throw away my parsley, that was new too. She got two shots and a collar and now she's a very unhappy and scared kitty. So no more snuggling for miss Purrrrrrfect! Poor kitty.Name:  not so happy kitty (362 x 405).jpg

    Bev, glad she's eating & griping. Both good signs.

    Mirab, you're such a tease!! Anael, hope Kitty feels better. I'm more upset when Patches is sick than when DH is LOL. (we all have our priorities) Just kidding!!!!

    So sorry about the cat...what a rough time for a cat...you almost wish they could talk and tell you what is wrong...best wishes to you, Anael, may the cat feel better very soon!!

    Mirabelle, you would not tease us, would you?? Wow, already done on bonus blocks, when I have yet to cut mine!!

    Big T day here; I pay the taxes, thankful I can, but the entire month will be tight, *very tight* budget. State of Missouri knows royally how to ruin the entire Christmas cheer and thoughts of the Season. Nothing left for the Christmas Stocking, not even a piece of coal. And dh will probably demand more. Maybe will we harvest our 'extra' drake and have duck for Christmas...quacking up time.

    Cats here need food, so off to town this morning to satisfy my eight spoiled cats. They are good mousers. May the day be a good one for all. Sunshine all day. Its warmer here, starting off at 44 degrees.

    Snow and rain here and COLD

    Luckily we don't know Tday here, we pay taxes all year long! And at the beginning of the following year we have to fill out the forms so they can get some more taxes

    Mirabelle, you're very fast! I didn't even decide on patterns or fabric yet!

    Bev, glad your DMIL is eating again! I hope she will better soon.
