    I've been having trouble posting-when I hit Post Reply I get a message saying I'm not authorized to do this. Then everything gets lost. Hmm--I don't think I BS too much LOL.
    Anael-three cheers for the SewGrands!! I love the pic of Isa and her rubber ducky. I'm glad Bram is back together with his sister--very important for twins.
    Mirab & OK--you guys amaze me with how talented and productive you are. Beautiful, beautiful quilts.
    Anne, we appreciate you as our Trail Master; thank you again and please don't leave us now that you're famous.
    QE--JUST GO FOR IT!!!!! If I, a senior blonde, can master the Sweet16 a young 'un like you will be FMQing in no time!! My nearest LQS is also an hour or so away but the phone support and techies can talk you through anything. There's really nothing to the Sweet16-threading, bobbin, sew.
    QNS, glad you're enjoying your company. It's so nice to have a noisy, fun crowd around one in awhile. Gives you a nice break from MrQNS (not suggesting you need one--no offense LOL).
    Ggal, thanks for explaining how you did your applique on your stepping stones; I may break down and try some applique one of these days.
    Hope this posts!

    QNSue ... great weekend for you! You'll just have to imagine all the noise and activity is still amidst you.

    MiraB ... you know the way to a man's ♥ is thru his stomach. Works good too for new sewing machines! After all, you have a very good reason ... your dreadful wait. Maybe make him something quilty that's all man? Great border on your DDs quilt ... looks like butterflies fluttering along the edge! Hang in there, I'll not just be thinking about you, but be along with you virtually tomorrow.

    OKSGlad ... another amazing pair, especially yoru Chained to the Barn Door! Great name, but better still the itsy-bitsy work! You really should do one of the OhMyGosh Quilts! Perhaps Grandma should be making Livvy Mae something special with zebras and giraffes?

    JanieW ... you've been so busy during your at home time! Now back with a stack of handwork ready for quiet times.

    JanRN ... glad that you were finally able to get online with us! So does that mean I can use your plastic??

    Today is Mystery Block Day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Thanks all for mini quilt comments. Janie may I suggest a trip to the optometrist--a new lens correction may let you see those wonky little blocks. There's a gal in Montana that does absolutely perfect work with 1/4" pieces. I just don't know how she does it! This is one place where I work at trying to get it just right. QE glad you picked up on the name of the littlest one!
    It's easy to get little ones finished, but mirabelle's BFly's are amazing. QE's remark on them floating away to the border is spot on. Those pesky Y's were worth it m.
    Janie, tell us about your preemie quilts. Inquiring minds want to know!
    QNS, despite all the loving noise around your home this weekend, sometimes quiet is good. It gives you time to reflect on all the goodness you have just experienced.
    Hope the retreat pair--Carrie and dublb are enjoying their weekend!
    I plan on sewing the 6" companion to my MB today. This switch to DST is tough on me, especially after a poor night's sleep. That's what naps are for.

    Oksewglad... I admit I am adjusting to new glasses, but I still think your minis are really well done. I love them.

    My grandson was a preemie . I spent a lot of time in the special care nursery and was just thrilled with the wonderful care he got while there. When we moved out here when he was 1, I decided to make preemie quilts to give to the Special Care Nursery as a small pay back for the wonderful care Colin got. So I make about 30 little quilts that fit the isolettes twice a year and take them up to the hospital. The babies take them home when they are discharged so that means I have to keep producing.

    Mirabelle, I just saw the butterfly quilt. It is gorgeous but the border makes it even more so. well done.

    I must get off the computer and get packing.

    Alas! Decision made on my MB pattern ... now how long will it take me to decide on the fabrics?
    In total, I'll probably spend more time doing these two steps than the actual production ... will see!

    OKSGlad ... I just love her name. Am thinking Livvy is a nick for Olivia ... another one I love!

    JanieW ... Happy Trails!! ... and safe travels!

    Hello All! Home again and partly unpacked...brought in food stuffs and laptop bag. It is raining here so am hoping it stops so I can get the rest done before it gets dark, if not I will at least unload my clothes/bedding and machine tonight.

    Mirabelle--your butterfly border turned out very pretty

    OK--your minis are lots of fun

    Sounds like many of you had a nice weekend...

    I was able to get rows together on my quilt and piano key borders are ready to go on....just need backing and batting so I can quilt it (QAYG). I work Wednesday so will pick those things up then. Some mentioned my colors and there being no green....don't worry it's in there. It is in the 2 fabrics with multiple colors and will also be the narrow border. I realized after taking the pictures one of the rows was laid out wrong, but you get the idea

    I also got my MB done, all of the 4-patch blocks together for the "airplane quilt" (just have airplane and propeller blocks to pp), and the magnetic closure put on my purse. It was a very productive weekend considering I did lots of visiting, helping a friend with a couple sewing things, and even took a nap when needed.

    I helped one of the ladies with some paper cutting for her wedding invites...she was feeling a little stressed after cutting something the wrong size. I had just finished my first quilt blocks so was happy to help before starting the next thing...poor thing is so worried she won't get them done in time...ended up she got done what she wanted to this weekend and is ready to print the info and attach that. She is making 300!!

    I posted this under pics but I wanted to share this with you. I finally got the nerve to quilt something "real" on my Sweet16. It probably should have more quilting but I didn't want to press my luck. This is a huge table runner, about 70 x 26 and is a Pam Bono pattern. Felt like I needed an engineering degree when I first started but it went together smoothly. I can' wait to do another of her patterns. Thanks for looking!Name:  PA Dutch Table Runner.jpg

    Enjoy the soak, Honchey!
    Oh Jan is that ever lovely. I have seen PB's patterns and yes they are very steppy, but this was worth it! Where are you going to put it?

    Honchey--sounds like a lot of long hours this week. Hope you are able to get some sewing in while there as planned.

    Jan--your tablerunner is pretty...and quilting especially nice.

    OK--how are you holding up after all the time helping out in the barn?

    Mystery Pardner ... you can relax and rest assured that your MB will be en route to you, on schedule! I got it finished today, and have it's baby sister that I'll keep about 1/2 done now. Hope you like it!

    CarrieM
    ... whew! you make me tired with all you accomplished at your retreat. Looks like not much rest in the R+R! Quilt looking great!!

    Honchey ... How good of you to cover for your colleague. Just hope you don't get too tired, and can keep the FUN in your "work"! Carrot caoke followed by a soak sounds like a perfect way to end your day!

    JanRN
    ... OMG ... how stunning ... the design, the colours, the piecing and the quilting! CONGRATULATIONS for taking that big step to do something "real"!!! Here's to many more finishes. Is your Rosie the next "real" thing?

    Jan I love your table runner, it is beautiful. Pam Bono designs are definitely challenging but the end result is worth it.

    Now off the computer its crunch time at the doc's

    Mirabelle, good luck and I hope the testresults are negative!
    The border on your butterfly quilt is beautiful!

    Jan, I love your table runner! The Pam Bono designs scare me, I want to do one but I haven't got the nerve to try! You did a great job on the quilting.

    Carrie, lovely colours, can't wait to see it finished!

    I didn't do much this weekend, just a bit of sewing, been on the computer and watched movies. My Kitty was stressed after spending a day at tha vet's, she redecorated my living room a few times. I wasn't very pleased
    The SewGrands are ok. My DS was watching Bram on telebaby yesterday and he saw a lot of nurses at his incubator. He got worried so he called to ask what was going on. Appeared Bram was taken off the morphine but couldn't adjust so they put him back on, that was all.
    This is Bram, picture is taken yesterday. The black spot on his arm is from the infection.

    What a precious baby, is he sucking his thumb, he look so peaceful. I hope the infection clears up quickly.

    Thank you everyone for thinking of me, I must admit I have had a cry since coming home. The test results were not negative but were positive. It was skin cancer but the doc assured me that he had taken all of it. I have to be extremely careful with the sun now that I have had one there may be more. I have a check up in three months so now I can breathe again.

    On a happier note I have received an e-mail from my "new" longarmer and my Pony Club quilt will be next on the frame and she has assured me that it will be in the mail back to me by the middle of April. She wants me to enter it into the big Queensland Quilters Show in October.... will think about that one

    Mirabelle, the infection is gone, this is from the stuff that went under his skin instead of in his vein. It will leave a scar and he might need plastic surgery.

    Oksewglad, those minies are stunning!

    MiraB ... I'm sure you feel that's a bit of Good News/Bad News. Vigilant monitoring from here on ... another good reason to keep on sewing to stay out of the sun! Oh perhaps a reason for that new sewing machine, Doctor's Orders for your treatment and therapy!!!!

    And BTW, you're not going to "think" about the Queensland show ... you're going to register and enter! What a compliment about your Pony!!! And being that she wants it in the show, I'm thinking there'll be some exceptional quilting to come too.

    How exciting ... another Pony soon to trot along!

    Honchey, that sounds like a busy week with DST beginning. janRN, beautiful table runner; so glad you are enjoying your new [email protected] QuiltE, you always seem to be on top of things, guess the mystery block is no different. Mirabelle, the good/bad news would throw anyone for a short time, then with true knowledge you can face the basic facts and let out a sign of relief that they 'got' it all. yes, enter your pony club quilt into the Queensland contest; it will take the overall championship. (Due to the fact of my heritage, i have 'fey' moments, not of my choice and that's what it told me as i read your news. It has been right about 99% of the time! That's why i can open the garage door for our kids to pull their car into it upon their unannounced arrival!)

    Now to get myself moving and face the day; i was so tired last night, the bed is a mess from all my tossing and turning. The kids made it back home just fine. Dh is happpppy with his new computer and is entertained royally. Thank goodness!! Whomever made the comment about him, hit the nail on the head, so no need to think i would take offense. He has 'offered' to help finish up the kitchen mess from yesterday....gee, i cannot wait to get dressed and run into the kitchen to have 'fun' with him before breakfast!! lol!!

    Ok, sweet talk those cows into producing more milk with you lending a hand in time of need. That's what the good farm wives do their whole lifetime and smile in their sleep!! Thought i could by-pass dgs knowledge by spelling out E A S T E R c a n d y yesterday at the table for lunch...but he got this bright eyed look and turned to his mother and said, "i want some candy!!' Bless his heart, he cried when he was seated in his seat to go home, he wanted to stay here....where he got his way all the way, except for the candy!!

    Thanks for the update on the Sewgrands, Anael. may they continue to improve and grow some more!!

    Isa is having downs in saturation all the time because she forgets to breath. My DS will ask tonight if they stopped the meds she got to help her remember. Otherwise both are doing ok!

    Two days and four pages.....so much going on! The Sewgrands are looking fat and sassy. Look at the wrinkles at the back of their necks. I hope Isa gets breathing figured out. And Bram has graduated! And they celebrate another birthday. OK..your little quilts are so charming. What patience you have as well as dedication to helping others. How is the milking agreeing with you? Does DH have breakfast ready for you when you come in? QNS...such fun with your family and now DH has his computer which keeps him entertained. Rest up a little and enjoy the memories. Mirabelle...the diagnosis does give pause but better than letting it go. Your beautiful quilts inspire all of us. I second Quilte's comment. No question about entering it! Janie...have a nice time with your grand kids. Maybe there will be a Mystery waiting for you when you get back! Jan...how nice you're making friends with your new machine. I really like the table runner you did. It is a neat pattern. Carrie...what a successful retreat. Your quilt is beautiful and all of the wedding cards got made...plus many other things. No wonder you put so much effort into putting it together. Honchey...such a busy celebrity! Take some time to sleep. QuiltE...hope you get your teeth fixed. It's amazing how that pain seems to migrates to the rest of your body. Congratulations on finishing the MB. Only four more days! Me?...​I didn't enjoy the time change either but after going to the chiropractor today found that wasn't all but feel totally better now! Couldn't go to town without stopping at the LQS. I want to make a quilt for a friend who has had a lot of bumps in life and had in mind the Tribute to Monet fabric. Today I picked up the Quilter Magazine, the spring review issue and there was a pattern for that fabric. Exactly what I needed since I couldn't figure out the pattern to use. Got all of the fabric for the top and look forward to putting it together. Really fell off the wagon didn't I? I also got some markers for the dry erase board where I will list all of my projects so they all see the light of day...hopefully this year!

    QNSue ... boy have I got you confused ... me? on top of things? Well, I guess so as I'm on top of a mountain of PhDs! Just knew I had to get at it, and get my MB done before the deadline ... and then back to ther things. I just hope I can make my monthly deadlines! Cute story about your DGS. Looks like he;s ahead of the rest of you!

    GGal ... Proud of you, for your stop by the LQS and bringing more home!!!

    WOW! 12 pages! I've read 'em all, but don't think I've processed everythin' that happened the last 5 days. I think I'll have ta reread 'em all.
    I got home th'evenin'. When I go on retreat I'm baaaad. I stay up all night & sleep a few hours in the mornin'. Sunday am I had slept 3 1/2 hours, so I just drove ta my friends house & slept on her wonderful memory foam mattress. So what did we do, last night, after bein' at a retreat for 4 days? We worked on her TX postage stamp quilt. Th'smornin' I drove 6 hours home.
    At the retreat I got a lotta stuff done, helped cut out some 2 1/2" strips for a friend's quilt w/my GO, learned how ta do a French Braid, showed a star block ta everybody & several o' us made some (I will sew these tagether & quilt 'em for Project Linus), finished a PL quilt I was almost through with & donated it, showed off some UFO's & WIP's, learned a make a rice bag, cooked Sat. night's supper met up w/old friends, met new friends, laughed & cried tagether, & last but not least I sewed the friendship block top tagether. I still gotta git some more black 'cause it is screamin' for a 2" black border then a 1/4" red border then another 2" black border. I'll post picts soon. (Alright, I know I'm slow & it'll be a while LOL.)
