    Anael--Sorry to hear of the sick kitty...maybe it was the gold shimmer in the Christmas quilt? Hope not and that it was just the parsley.

    Dublb--good news that DMIL is eating and especially that the hospital was willing to work with you on the food.

    QNS--glad to hear your weather will be nicer today. We had lots of fog Sunday morning, but it cleared off and was a nice day...today is supposed to be more of the same and 67 for a high! Very unusual for December!

    Mirabelle--I will be anxiously awaiting your pretty package.

    School time....

    I'm so sleepy. We didn't git a sitter, so last night was a rough one. DMIL had several fever spikes & kept tryin' ta take her oxygen mask off. Her blood pressure is high too. I did git her ta eat a bowl o' cream o' wheat, th'smornin'. DH is w/her now & I'm gonna take a nap as soon as my eggs are boiled. (I'm hungry too.)

    Hi, just checking up on everyone and glad to see those that were ill are on the mend...

    Anael, there's a new video out about twins still in the womb interacting with each other....very interesting...very similar to your situation...

    I have 2 totally different patterns in mind for the Bblocks... I'm very much on the fence about which one to do...

    Going to visit my sister in DE...DH is going to...We're going to do dinner out one night and will also attend a Christmas Play at her Church the next evening...I will get some shopping done inbetween...I am looking forward to this little diversion....
    Stay well all of you...the Holidays can be hectic...don't overdo and stress yourselves out...whatever has to be done today will still be there tomorrow for you to do.. peace. H.

    I'm with Anne! I've picked out two patterns for the Bblocks also, but have not decided which one to do yet. I'm having trouble finding the fabric I had in mind too. Everything I look at has too large a print! Too bad I can't just put it in the copier and shrink it! LOL

    I had all the fabric I needed right here, but I must admit I agonised over which pattern to do.

    After much deliberation my first choice did not make the grade, not because it was not a nice pattern just that it would not have suited those that are going to put it into their quilt SO onto choice number 2 but it did not suit the fabric I wanted to use. Choice number 3 made the grade and once I started piecing them together I couldn't stop

    Just home from the Post Office so they are on their way yippee.

    Now it is back to Jamestown Landing, I will have the top finished before Christmas (well that's the plan anyway)

    I'm sorry for everyone's troubles whether with family or pets. I've always said life is a balance and when there are bad days the good ones will make up for them. You just weather the storm
    So I'm not the only one who has been debating about what block (s) to make. Well that's a relief! This is an after Christmas project for me. BTW, I sew fast!!! Put the pedal to the metal, I do.
    Emily was here on Saturday. She wanted to sew again, so I got out the squares I have cut out of GGPa's old shirts. She made all the 4P's from the quilt design everyone here likes. Then placed larger squares onto the bed in spare room. My turn now to get the black sashing and border. She picked out the fabric for the border from my stash as well. I think we will tie this as she can help with that. This is to be a gift for DH's sister. I also took the front of one shirt (Western style, pearl buttons) and the back of another to make a rectangular pillow. Emily sewed the f&b together on Sat as well. She was happy as a clam.

    Carrie, next workshop will be a shop full! Nice table runner BTW.

    I've been lurking and the sewing machine has been humming. I have two UFO's ready to bind which I will finish up today and those headers and Enders have really been adding up. It makes me feel so productive. QNS...I'm sorry about the mat. I had been looking at electrical ones for small animals and didn't notice that this one wasn't electrical. You probably would be happier to return it and just use a heading pad on the floor with some carpet scraps. Jan...yes the Doak's book does have a CD but I haven't taken the time to look at it. Dubib...I do hope you get some rest and that you DMIL is feeling better. Growing old is not easy on anyone in the family! Anael...I'm glad you intend to sew with us for the next 10 years. You do such beautiful work. It's a nice treat for you to keep the Christmas quilt. Honchey...we're behaving on the trail. Can you say the same with your trip to DE? How much damage did you see in that area? It sounds like everything has changed in the coast thanks to Sandy. Mirabelle...with your organization and sewing speed, I'm certain you will have Jamestown done before Christmas. I can't wait to see the blocks. Carrie....don't peak at Mirabelle's blocks until you have yours all done or you might second guess what you're doing. Jeanie...I have the second step of Easy Street done. It was fun to dive into the purples and the rulers as well as Bonnie's tips of quilt cam gave me some of the best flying geese ever. Love learning something new. OKSEw...Emily is one lucky little girl! I'm sure this experience with you will spur her creativity on for the rest if her life. It's worth every moment you take. I want to see how many more UFO's I can get done this month so my BB's are also an end if the month project. I do have most of them cut out and a few stitched together. QuiltE...how many flowers will bloom during your week at the Royal? Enjoy the cows. Are you manning a booth again?

    I have just come home from grocery shopping, not my favourite pasttime, and the temperature has hit 35 and it is only 9am. I converted it to Farenheit and it is 95, the humidity is around 70%. I feel like I am melting.
    Guess where I am spending the afternoon, in my sewing room with the aircon humming away.

    Must dash the groceries won't put themselves away.

    Carrie you have my permission to peek

    Watching "This New House" on DIY shows me how little I know about building items that help with heat, air flow and quality of air in the home...wow. What a difference it would make here... one can only dream and wish, I guess.

    It was nice to hear from OksewGlad and GG, now if we can hear from QuiltE, GrannyO, and DD...at least a 'hello' would be nice. Hello folks, you are being missed here.... No, GG, the pad weighs too much too send back; hoping it will help a bit 'cause it gets his feet off the cold slap concert floor. What small animals do you work with using heat pads??

    Beautiful Day here, sunshine!! Cannot believe our December weather...up into 70 degrees!! Nice road trip to pick up more chicken feed and cat food. Cats, of course, had to supervise the bags being dumped into their steel garbage can, and have a 'sample' of the new food to eat. Picked up boxes 6x6x6 to pack the 'goodies' in for Christmas...have had four responses so far from members on the PC trail...hurry 'cause time is running out...and Mrs. Claus's kitchen is closing soon...treat samples come with recipes attached..

    Dh cooked too much of his 9-grain cereal this morning, so I made him cookies using a cup of his 9-grain cooked cereal, Splenda for sugar, Quaker Oats, mini chocolate pieces, and a bit of crunchy peanut butter. A whole breakfast in a cookie, that quickly fills a hungry stomach.

    QS, we've been having great weather, too--65*today. Finished putting up the outside decorations. It was too nice out to stay inside and sew. I have 11 of my bonus blocks done and I ran out of one of the fabrics. Darn-that means I must go shopping!!! My 2 quilty friends and I are going on a FART tomorrow and of course it's supposed to be 38* and blustery. At least it's not going to snow. We've only had a trace of snow so far this winter. Yay!!

    QNS...we used those heated pads in the farrowing house when we raised pigs. The sows were in crates and the heated mat was to the side under a heating lamp and the piggies loved it. I would still recommend calling Nasco and checking on their return policy. They might pay the shipping. Did you have your house built or did you buy it from someone who had lived in it?
    Jan..too bad you have to go shopping to finish the BB....have fun! Our weather has been exceptionally warm as well but colder weather is said to be coming. My DH had the kitchen window open yesterday.
    I didn't quite get the bindings done today. I forgot how many steps there were and I did have a couple of rows of Baptist Fan quilting to finish up on the one and it took most of the morning. Both are pressed and glued ready for the last seam tomorrow! Another UFO moving from the backburner that has possibility of finishing this week too. I love seeing competitions.
    Mirabelle...that's the kind of weather I can do without. It just makes me wilt. Nice you have a cool room wo sew in.

    We too have been enjoying the mild winter thus far. I am sure it is not going to continue, but am happy for what we get. My kids just think that if it is going to get cold it *has* to snow too!

    I was busy cutting up vegetables for soup yesterday afternoon for a veggie/cheese soup for my card club Christmas party last night. The recipient of my table runner was happy for it. I also gave my good friend who hosts our card club a table topper I had made a while back (I shared it here, star shape that looked like a wreath when I added red buttons).

    Today I just had a little bit to sew, so I got a dresser runner finished up for our bedroom. It is about 56" long and 8" wide. It is the butterfly ("shimmer" line) kaleidoscope blocks. The black is my refrigerator...do you think I need a narrow black border or binding to finish it off?

    I feel so lost.....I don't have to post any threads and I feel like something is missing...it's Tuesday evening and I don't have to do anything!!! I love to read all the chatter...everyone's busy doing something....I will have the grandkids tomorrow for a visit & dinner..
    looking at fabric for the bblocks.. and working on a project or two...I'll be working on them in NC as we're leaving for NC a couple of days after Christmas... It was beautiful here today also...I am so tempted to take a ride to Seaside Heights ...I spent all my summers there as a child well into my teenage years...several of my aunts & uncles had summer bungalows and all 16 of us (cousins) drove them crazy all summer long....The only people allowed in that area are the residents...I think it would be too sad for me.... Jan & Mirabelle...good for you.. getting the blocks done so quickly....I'm still on the fence about which to do...maybe I'll do both...I'll check in on you all tomorrow....

    So glad everyone is taking time to visit. It is weird not to scramble around, find blocks, take a pic, then post each week. I should be doing that with my Rosie blocks but I'm just not that into them. Very little feedback on blocks and no chatter. Still, the blocks are fun and everyone's are so different.

    Bev, hang in there. I know you must feel like you're on a roller coaster: good news one day then bad news the next. I think the hardest part is lack of sleep. Even when you get to bed, you "half sleep" waiting for the dreaded phone to ring in the middle of the night. Lots of prayers and positive vibes being sent your way from all of us,

    Carriem, I love your table runner and don't think I'd add black binding; the blue fabric is outstanding, just love it and wouldn't want to take away from it.
    .
    Well, I must rush off to my FART--Yay!!! We have so much fun--3 old ladies in a bright orange minivan laughing, talking and solving all the problems of the world and, of course, shopping!

    It is a little strange not to look for a new thread, but it looks like we've found this on all right.

    Has everyone doing the bonus blocks received emails from me?? If not, please PM me so I can send you final details that way.

    Bev--you are in my prayers.

    Jan--Have a great day with friends.

    I work today at the quilt shop...get to look/touch fabric all day...almost as good as shopping for it.

    You, Dublb, are in our thoughts and prayers...we are there for you in our virtual RV, just grab the marshmallows and we will all have a BIG group hug {[(wish)}] with you!

    Enjoy your grandchildren and children, Honchey. I think you are a lucky person be able to give them their personal hugs...and hold them close to your heart. We do not get to see ours very often.

    Carrie, I am so happy you get some time in your sewing room; and GG, too, getting projects done there...everytime I think I can, dh has 'projects' for us to do together...reminding me its time to 'entertain' him...ro be that 'extra' hand. Like this morning, trimming guinea wing feathers so they will stay on the ground in the yard area. Choosing cookie recipes this morning for the Santa menu, and he starts reading off recipes that he is interested in, not what I thought I was going to do...got one choosen....Billy Goat Cookies. Not too worry, no Billy Goat included in the ingredients... but there may be one in every crowd... that rams through to grab that gift your were looking at as you do your Christmas Shopping...or cuts you off with their car in traffic!! Bless them, and thank the Man above you are not them!!

    My dear friends, with great sadness I come to you tonight. My DS and DDIL went for their check up to the hospital today and they have to make an impossible decision. One of the twins isn't going to survive but they don't know how long he will live. If he dies the other twin might survive but it's also possible he won't. If he does he has a real change of being disabled, either mentally, physically (spelling?) or both. If they wait and do nothing they might end up with nothing at all. It's possible to terminate the twin pregnancy without doing harm to the third baby but that has to be done within 6 weeks from now. So now they have to decide but it's clear they won't have triplets.
    My DS asked me when he walked me to my car what I would do but I can't tell him. I don't know what I would do, it's almost impossible to make that decision. Please keep them in your thoughts. No one should have to make such decisions.

    Oh, Anael! What a sad situation. I'm praying that you DS and DDIL have wisdom and in the end, great peace at the end of this journey. Special strength for you as you support them in whatever they decide.
