    Maybe you could be our silent judge, we tell you what we were supposed to make and you tell us if we have it right, all done in secret of course...
    A bit like Carriem who got to see all those lovely BB's before anyone else
    Does anyone mind..
    This way Anael will still be a part of our ride just in a different way

    All's OK with me for this plan ... though you know, MiraB, I can hear Anael chuckling away, and having it re-routed to Holland.

    hhmmmmm ..... maybe this will be the way to get her recruited for the April swap?
    hhhmmmmmmmmmmmm again ..........Good Strategy!!!!

    *whistles a happy tune*


    Now off to the post office, as two cards were in my box with parcels to pick up!!
    I wonder I wonder, just what it might be?
    Perhaps a squishie or two?

    Jeanie--I like the blue.

    Mirabelle--happy anniversary...a little early!

    I think letting Anael see mystery blocks would be a fun way to include her in the "ride" and not have to wait until we post here...if Honchey gives the ok, we could PM or email Anael a sneak peek of our mystery block to see what she thinks? Then those who get done early don't have to wait so long to show "someone".

    Thanks for the well wishes for archery. DS got 3rd Place in Middle School Boys in League Standings (which means he had the 3rd top two scores during regular tournaments). Where he places today determines where he places in "All-State" (which is those scores, plus the state score). Plus if he places in the top 5 at State he qualifies for Nationals so we are pretty excited. The girls aren't so "high" in standings but the teams have done well all year and they have both had personal bests...this is their 3rd year shooting.

    Ok...time to shut the computer down for the day. I will miss checking in throughout the day....but look forward to the chatter tomorrow.

    Jeanie...I was thinking if your quilt while making breakfast this morning and thought a dark blue would be nice and then....it appeared! The fusion has a play of shades too so it's just perfect.
    Mirabelle....I understand your sad moment. I too am ready to show my block and vote for having Anael as first viewer. We would have to send it by regular email. BTW, our anniversay is March 3 but it's only 3 years.
    OK...have fun at the state meeting. There are always old friends and lots if "cow" talk. You have a very busy and interesting life. Never a dull moment.
    QuiltE...I've never seen more than one pineapple per block but if you want to get creative, have at it.
    Anael...thanks for the heads up about the 6 inch in Sylvia. I'll check it out. I started Sylvia when I started the FWS and did the blocks that were duplicates. I think about 20. Both are in the UFO stage. They are moving up so maybe this year.
    Carrie...have fun at the tourney and good luck to the youngsters.

    I would love to 'judge' your blocks first And yes, all that I don't agree with can come to my house and live here!
    Carrie, you will have to send an email because you can't attach a picture to a PM.

    I'm working on the FWS now. Somewhere on the board I read about using the background fabric for sashing and that's what I'm doing now. I decided not to go by the #s but row by row. That way I can put the quilt together while making the blocks. First row is ready That was easy, only one block LOL.

    Good luck with the archery Carrie! By the time you read this you know whether he qualified or not.

    No news on the twins, meaning nothing happened, they're doing ok. My DS and DDIL are there now so I guess I will hear from them when they're back.
    Off to the next FWS block I go!

    Great news about Bram....may it continue.

    I finding out I must 'log in' each time I come on the QB board today; must be something new...wonder how many forgot their password and is digging in their computer places to find it!! Somehow, its less welcoming this way...to have to log in for recognition each time..instead of saying,,.'welcome, aboard (QNS)' matching up the computer to the name like Amazon does. Come on, techs, go modern instead of the other way!! Yes, dh taught programming to Junior high kids, and to our own kids, and they work as 'techs' today with engineering degrees and good jobs. Daughter has been approached by several computer places to come work for them, but she is a stay at home mom for their four year old son. She is building a computer for her Dad, (My dh), and he is so impatient to get his hands on it. Sometimes 'security' can go to far in its protection. Bid defender is complaining about the site, too, may be something as suddenly changed some feature. Funny, 'cause I found the ad for it on QB. It will allow me to read the daily email from QB. It should be nicer because it is coming up for renewal...wonder where I go from here???

    Every day is a new experience, and it can change in a small moment!!

    QNS - I don't have to log in each time I come to the Board! I wonder if some security thing on your computer was added with a new release or something???

    Great news on Bram's weight Anael. Such fun to see those babies getting better and growing.

    I'm checking out the quilt stores around here for the Fusion. I only had a 3/4 yd piece of the fabric left.

    Carrie, two of my grandsons also go to those Archery Tournaments. They love it!

    Happy 6 wks Birthday, SewGrands!!!

    FYI
    ... Posted a bunch of PC pics ... not quite caught up in the photo dept, but you have most of them now!

    GGal
    ... still on the honeymoon, and a blushing bride!! Happy 3rd Anniversary!!! Any celebratory plans?

    Anael ... Awesome ... the little tiger surprised you on that burst of weight, I bet! Lots to celebrate for the SewGrands!!! I'd never thought of the sashing being the same as the background. It should work well and will let the designs float in the pattern. Will you use coloured cornerstones? or go without? Bonus in joining as you go ... that part is out of the way for later.

    QNSue ... All's been working fine here for my arrival to the QB ... no log ins.

    JeanieG ... good luck in finding your fabric. If you end up ordering online, be careful as to which royal you get. They have a darker one, and one that's a bit brighter in the Fusions Mist, so I suspect much the same in the others too.

    MiraB ... glad I am not the only one that gets lost as to whether it's today, tomorrow or yesterday, and how to address each other! So what are you two lovebirds up to this weekend, after that supper cooked when you came home from DDs?

    DublB ... so what all do you have to do to get ready for the retreat? Have FUN when you go!

    JanieW ... typical of our Canada Post ... my squishie has yet to arrive!

    Here is what I have been working on for the past 2 days, dinner was not going to be cooked tonight until this was together
    I just have to figure out what I am going to do for borders, but that can wait for another day..

    DH has just gone for a drive to see if the creeks are rising as we have had quite a bit of rain today, there is a monsoonal trough sitting off the coast about 150 miles north of us so hoping it goes out to sea and does not form into a cyclone.

    Nothing special tomorrow, probably cook a nice meal and watch a movie, might have a cappuccino and cheesecake at our favourite cafe tomorrow morning..

    Ohhhhhhhhhh mirabelle, how gorgeous! Those butterflies are embroidered? When I see what you're accomplishing it makes me feel very lazy

    Have a great day today, hope you enjoyed your cappuccino and cheesecake

    I received the monthly newsletter from Jinny Beyer but I can't find the pattern for Solstice block 2. Do I miss something? According to the website it should be in the newsletter.

    Thank you Anael.
    I did receive Jinny's newsletter but there wasn't anything in there for Solstice, I may e-mail her and find out when the next block is going to be available.
    Hope you are enjoying the eye candy

    This is how my FWS is going to be. What do you think? I like the idea of the blocks floating on the background but maybe it's too light/white? Please be honest!

    Good morning, Anael (or is it evening for you?) Happy birthday, babies!!!
    I would never have thought of floating the FWS blocks in white but I really, really like it. There's a nice softness about it but the blocks still stand on their own. Great colors in your blocks, too. Thanks for posting this--it gives me something to think about besides black/dark blue that I always use. Can't wait to see it all together.

    I found Jinney's pattern for this month. Towards the bottom of the news letter there is a line " click here for all of the material that has been released so far " and it opens to the setting block and months one and two. I like the new color ways she has available. The other was so dark. Still resisting this one but it is a beautiful one to dream about.
    SEWGRANDS.....happy birthday. Such good news.
    Mirabelle....your butterflies are so beautiful. Does your embrodiery machine have to be watched all of the time? Can you do other sewing while it works? You amaze me with the volume of work you produce.
    Anael....I would never have thought if using white like you have but I really like the affect. The blocks do float! Very nice. I still have some PC blocks to make into a quilt and I might consider the same thing.
    good morning Jan. We must have been typing at the same time. We have a beautiful, cold sunshiny day here. How's your weather?

    Its happy anniversary wishes to GGal.

    Happy Birtihday to the sew twins. Anael, beautiful background of white, and you do make it work right.

    Mirabelle, beautiful butterfly quilt.

    QuiltE, no muslin yet?

    Yes, I think its that bid defender making me sign in each time. Will ask daughter how to rid myself of it, and install something else. It shall not stop me from getting on QB!!

    Anael, did you use the same w/w in your blocks as the one shown??? I like it...I think the white brings out the colors more vividly....

    Happy Anniversary GGal and Happy Birthday Sewgrands!!!

    You guys were certainly talking up a storm yesterday !!!! I couldn't keep up....

    Boy, the midwest certainly got hammered with snow...eveyone ok???

    Well we got home a little after 11 last night and the kids are still sleeping...too bad I can't sleep in. DH did make me breakfast though. Maybe I'll take a nap this afternoon. DS didn't qualify individually for Nationals, but the teams (Middle School and High School) did, so we might be going to KY in May if enough of the kids can go. DS placed 5th in All-State. Both girls shot their highest scores of the year and were very happy about that. DS's score was about average.

    Jeanie--we have lots of fusions at the quilt shop where I work. If you have a selvage with color # of the blue, I would be happy to check if we have the one you need when I go to town tomorrow.

    Mirabelle--Your butterflies turned out beautiful! Hope you have a very nice day with DH.

    Dublb--how is your packing going for the retreat? What are you taking to work on? I am taking a quilt that everything is cut for. It is an easy pattern so I am hoping to get all the blocks together and maybe even the "piano key" border done...we'll see how productive I can be. My prep this week is more getting stuff ready for the organization for the others coming to the retreat.
    Anael--I think your blocks "floating" in white will look really nice. Great news about the twins.

    QE--congrats again on all your blocks....they look really good.

    Ggal--Happy Anniversary...hope you have a very nice day with DH too!
