    Ok ggal, I will email you Anael's email to all of you..

    At least we all now have the block now and the quilt you make with the blocks will be easier to assemble and the centers & corner triangles will be the same size...

    Dublb, it was a problem working a 13" block into others that measure 12.5".

    OksewGlad, hope your dh find relief in back pain since he went to the doctor's today. We are expecting freezing rain tomorrow evening, and snow mixture....continues into Wednesday afternoon. Then warms up to the 50s on Thursday.

    Will try the pineapple block sent by Honchey; also finish the one I have started...so will have couple extra for myself. Each one is different of course so its a mystery yet.

    Wow unusual to wake up with no new messages from the other side of the world! Hope everything is ok!! We got a little more snow, but not the 8" they were talking about. Schools are still canceled though since the wind is blowing and we might get 2 more inches today.

    QNS--I got your letter yesterday...thanks!

    Honchey--thanks for your work on the pineapple block. I got it printed; will cut out today and tape together to measure to make sure it printed the right size.

    Thanks, Anne. EQ7 has a ton of Pineapple blocks and I want to make sure I do the right one. I love doing Pineapple blocks.
    Carrie, we're getting your storm later today. Going on a mini-FART, just Joanne's and of course lunch. Storm isn't supposed to hit until 6pm so will be home in plenty of time. Actuallly, the sun is shining--it's so bright it's almost blinding (or is it the fact that out of the last 43 days we've only had 3 days without clouds and snow????) Not used to sunshine.
    Have a great day everyone. Peace.

    JanRN ... I'd take your clouds ... though I do like the sun and the cheer it brings, the brightness has been a real killer for me and my photophobic eyes. Sunglasses just do not cut it, for me.

    Me? off to the dentist ... a tooth broke on me on the weekend. I so DO NOT like going to the dentist, so this unplanned visit makes it all seem even worse!

    Yup, QuiltE....this is the one.
    Enjoy your FART, Jan. That many days without sunshine would get anyone down so now there is sun and fabric. What better way to cheer quilters heart!
    Anael must be washing the kitchen curtains. She reviewed my mystery block and gave her stamp of approval.
    Today is another PC day. I got one border on yesterday which inspires me to keep going and get this one done. I also pulled out the FWS book and will start having some of the last blocks cut and ready to piece when I get bored with other stuff. All of the predicted storms have fizzled for us so it's hard for us to believe that we will get 3 inches of snow today.

    I will tell all when we get our storm here. Can do without the ice; moisture in snow is good for the soil. Do I go to town before the storm or after the storm passes through???? QuiltE, it is good you are going to fix that broken tooth quickly, then you can stop worrying about it.

    Thank you, Honchey, for the pineapple pattern; now everyone can make that same pattern for GG.

    Thanks, Carrie, about the envelope.

    Ggal--keep it up on the PC borders and you will get there! I felt like I was so close on getting mine done and things kept happening to put it off, but it was so rewarding to say "it's done!" Can't wait to see yours all together.

    Jan--have fun shopping today and enjoy the sunshine.

    Today I will just be getting ready for my retreat....just finished digging out crockpots and packing the kitchen stuff I need to take. Later will shovel a path to the clubhouse and work on packing sewing stuff. Since this is the 5th retreat we've hosted the packing is pretty quick....I am a list maker so keep my lists. Also need to make name cards today...we do secret sisters and since not everyone knows everyone, this is the easiest way for the ladies to know who their "sister" is....hope all have a great day!!

    Anne to prevent that I open another tab on the same thread. Then I can keep my reply box open and check back on the other tab. I always have more than one tab open. It may be FB or my email, who know.
    DH problem may be disc related--a month of therapy to see if it improves. If not then surgery. It's going to be a long month and longer if surgery is involved.

    OK-- Has your DH had an MRI? I would say if insurance will approve it to get this sooner than later (based on my DH experiences). My DH had a bad back...PT did give him some relief for a while so hope that yours get some too. He did end up having surgery for a ruptured disc, and after that the pain was pretty much gone. Praying your DH can get relief without surgery, but if he does need it can heal quickly afterwards.

    Latest update: Isa is still doing great! If all goes well she will take her first bath on Thursday! I hope we will be there and my DDIL is allowed to do it.
    Bram needed some blood yesterday and is still on the ventilator. Otherwise no news.

    I'm off to a meeting, CU all later!
    Eat, quilt, sleep, repeat

    I'm back from my mini-FART and I learned something at Joanne's today. I had about 15 coupons, 50% off. I had some yardage, most of it was on sale 30% off so I figured I couldn't use my coupons. Check-out gal says "oh I'll just ring the items up at full price and then take your 50% off". Wow-that worked out great. I didn't know they would do that. Am I the only one who didn't know this or was this an especially nice checker? I used 9 coupons, only one item wouldn't scan at full price but it was on sale anyway.

    Come on, Ggal--I'm rootin' for you! Get those borders on, you can do it. Can you see the finish line just ahead?

    QNS, my son is flying into St Louis tomorrow. How's the snow situation there? He was supposed to go to Milwaukee but they moved his meeting because of the snow in Wisconsin. (OMG, he's 40 yrs old and mama's still worrying about him LOL).

    Anael, thanks for the update on the Sewgrands. Still sending prayers.

    Anne & QE, what is it with this being "dental season"? The 2 of you and MrJanRn. He broke off a tooth last week and has an appt tomorrow. I rank going to the dentist right up there with y-seams.

    Bev, I never congratulated you on your new GS--enjoy him. They are priceless (even mine at age 19 is usually priceless but also can be a PITA!)

    I went in for a cleaning...About 30 years ago I had a tooth go bad and had to have some surgery done to save it...There was some nerve damage as the bottom of the roots had to be removed and as a result I have a condition called paranestesia?
    now a tooth close by has a "silent abcess" at the bottom of the root area...I don't feel any pain because of the numbness in that general area..the abcess has been increasing in size for about 6 yrs and now it has to be removed surgically..it's the least troublesome procedure for them & me to have done... I really wasn't expecting anything like this!!!!..There's no emergency,but the Dentist said it could flare up at anytime and escalate into a more serious procedure and loss of the tooth......
    You lucked out with the Joann employee Jan...I don't think they're supposed to do that...It's good that you had fun...I was supposed to go to Joann's today to pick up some natural muslin for a few of the Mystery Blocks...I have the bleached white....the coupons are burning a hole in my pocket!!!!

    Ok, I do hope they did a MIL on your dh like JanRN said.

    Hope you gals off to the dentist get things solved. I haven't had a cavity since I was 21...pulled all my teeth with my first job salary and had plates made, so my are easy to clean!! LOL!!

    Good FART trip JanRN. Saving my Joann coupons up for the 21st of this month. We are going off to Des Moines with bf couple to celebrate our anniversary of 47 years at Red Lobster...also will stop at Best Buy and JoAnns on 14th.

    Yes, it is snowing here; dh says about 4 inches last night and it was snowy hard on me in town, and drifting onto the highway coming home. Schools are running buses on hard surface roads only this week. Temps are expected warm up by Thursday and be in the 50s through the weekend. St. Louis is a very interesting town to visit...with the Arch, ball stadium, river boat restaurants, the zoo, and more...its about a five to seven hour drive from us... although we did go a lot when we were younger.

    Okay Ladies, Mirabelle discovered a error in the Pineapple print out...Nothing major.
    after timming the 2 smaller sections tape them together..after trimming the 2 large sections tape them together leaving the open end attached..don't trim it off...when you line up the bottom section(smaller oner) on the large section..it is 3/8ths of an inch short...so just pull it down keeping the outside lines lined up...I think the easier way to do it would be to pencil in the lines on the sections longer than what they are just make sure the strip sections are one inch... I will take a photo later to show you...

    Sorry for throwing a spanner in the works Honchey,
    I found my pineapple quilt (yes there are not too many patterns I have not tried) made this over 16 years ago and it was paper pieced, drew up the block last night using graph paper and using the method GGal gave us I made a pineapple block this morning and it is 12 1/2 inches. I did this before going to the Doc's.
    I started with a 2 1/2 inch square and my strips were cut at 1 1/2 inches, if you look at my block you will notice I have 5 rounds of background fabric and 5 rounds of main fabric. So the maths should work. The corner triangle of the main fabric I cut a 5 1/2 inch square and cut once on the diagonal.

    GGal is this what you were thinking of.

    Ok I am going to crawl into bed right now, feeling a little sore and sorry for myself. The doc did a little excision and I have 6 stitches in my cheek
