    Bev, you've been very productive Sounds like you had lots of fun!

    Update on Isa: they adjusted the meds (read: increased the amount) and now she's having no more downs anymore. At least not those way downs, just tiny little ones but that's ok! I will visit them this afternoon, can't wait!

    Still catching up here. Anael, great pics of the babes--makes me smile each time I see them and their progress.
    Carrie, I love the fabric and design you chose for your quilt. You and DublB seem to have been very productive and had great times at your retreats.
    Altho I miss the deadline of doing 2 blocks per week this has been great catch up time on some projects. I have the sashing on my BBs and was planning to get that finished and start quilting Rosie but something always gets in the way. Like Anne, I've been working extra (need that FART money LOL) and one of my favorite co-workers announced she's leaving so I had to make a table runner for her. Hope to finish it today since Friday is her last day. Poor Patches isn't doing too well again, more antibiotics and falls over a lot (only has 2 good legs but he's not in pain and still thinks he can chase bunnies; what to do with him???) Also, not getting much sleep. Phone keeps ringing at all hours of the night, no one there, not a fax machine, just strange beeping. Going to contact phone company today, hope they have a solution. Can't turn phone off--terminally ill BFF has only weeks to live and I still worry about my DGS out there driving, etc. At least Bev had fun when she didn't get any sleep!
    Off to the BatCave--gotta finish that table runner. Have a good day all.

    Thanks for the continued updates on the SewGrands, Anael. 7 weeks oh my!
    You are right Jan, it is nice to catch up on projects. I keep telling myself I must finish what I've started--so that's my mission right now. Sorry about Patches, too. Wish you could get a good night's sleep. I'm sure phone rings just as you have gotten back to sleep and then you can't go back to sleep.
    mirabelle, hope the all malignant cells were removed. You need to make a big floppy hat--quilted of course to protect that pretty skin.
    It's wonderful that carrie and dublb were able to accomplish so much on their retreats. Yeah!
    And GGal has a new project--looking forward to seeing it's progress! I hate the time change, too. Not a morning person and the change amplifies it!
    DH's back is improving. Therapy is helping. Exercises he was given are similar to what he has been doing on his own--just needs to do more. So milk maid is temporarily off duty! Now to get back to some UFO's and WIP's. DIL still has my camera and will take pics when I get it back. Here's the two table toppers I did for an FFA fundraiser. This is for the kids going to International Dairy Judging contest in Scotland this summer. Three of the four participants own Guernseys. BBs have fabric from these two. They do lay flat. Note to self don't use cushy ottoman as a picture backdrop! Name:  020.JPG

    Great table runners, OK. I love that burgandy fabric that looks like it has feathers on it. And your cousin's Pinaeapple quilt is to die for--love it. I have to go to the store to get milk---MUCH easier than being a milkmaid LOL.

    Everybody else. As I read last night I prayed for those o' ya who needed the prayers as I read, but I can't remember who had the dental problems & who has skin cancer, ect..... I guess it's brain fog after all the sleep I missed. I think that I'm gonna take a bit ta recover. I did sleep 10 hours last night.

    I finally got the butterfly quilt basted and have started the quilting, I am doing a feather meander or it could be duck legs
    Just started it this morning but haven't got very far

    Now the second photo ???? I wonder what that could be its all ready for posting tomorow. It is going out into the wild blue yonder a day early as I won't be home on the 15th and it definitely can't wait until Monday 18th. I hope my mystery recipient likes it and can't wait to see who I get next....

    Wow Karen, the quilting is beautiful! Even if it's ducklegs
    Revealing the address doesn't help if that little mouse doesn't open the package too

    Anael I thought of leaving a little of the package showing under the customs declaration but it gave away the colour so that would not do..

    I hope you have enjoyed seeing all the blocks, round 2 is about to start

    OOOOh that's enough to get everyone's curiosity riled up, mirabelle! I love your quilt and your quilting in the first picture. Do I recognize a pfaff? It looks a lot like my machine.

    Just got the girls off to school and the little guy is happily playing at my feet while I steal a few minutes on line with a cuppa and I lucked out and got this treat, mirabelle.

    My son told me this am he is taking me to Lethbridge on Sat for a fabric buy and it's his treat to thank me for helping them out. Totally not necessary at that's what we do, but I admit I am looking forward to it!

    Hi to everybody!

    mirabelle-so lovely quilting. I've been FMQ on some baby quilts and mine isn't nearly as nice as yours. I'm at the stage of "what can I do aside from meander?" and "help--all I can do is meander!" I keep telling myself--practice, practice.
    The first one's in the mail--whoo hoo!

    Janie--Oh heaven a FART and you don't have to pay. This son is a keeper--but I guess you knew that!

    DublB ... like CarrieM, a very productive retreat, though it doesn't sound like there was much of either of the R+R's as part of the retreat!

    Anael ... good to know the meds have helped Lil Isa! OOPs! forgot to send you the MB that I did. Will get that done later today, and if not, please remind me!

    JanRN ... Looks like you need lots of {{{{HUGS}}}}, so hope that these help you some. A tough time for Poor Patches and tough decisions for you too. So sorry about your friend. I know you have been a big support to her through her struggles. Did you get any answers about the phone issues? You need your sleep, and that does not help!

    OKSGlad ... good to know that DH is doing better and you are laid off! Though as a typical farmer, the challenge is that he will overdo and then!!!!!!! Or have you issued enough threats to him, to behave? Another nice pair of finished minis. And for such a good cause! Great pineapple from your cousin ... do you have her recruited yet for the QB?

    MiraB ... oooooooooooh the butterfly quilting is looking ever so grand! As for your MB tease!!!!! So fun!!!!!!!!!! Must get mine packaged up and ready to post.

    JanieW ... now that's one wonderful DS to take you for a coplimentary FART!!!!!!!!! I'll be anxiously waiting to hear/see what jumps into your arms !!!!!!!!!!

    OKSGlad ... just saw that you posted while I read an posted ... I'm like you and have been opting for meander and stipple for safety. I really do need to go on to other things, just that I fear it not looking so good, and slip backwards!! I think we need some nudging from MiraB in the how to and confidence depts!

    Are you saying, Honchey, that if we fail to receive a mystery block (or send one) you will not be able to track the missing one down? Suspense is growing. Hope Anael has a picture of everyone's block, so she can perhaps, straighten out the mess...if necessary. Those abroad will ship on the 15th and elsewhere inside the USA will ship on the 25th of March, unless USA is shipping is shipping to Canada or abroad then, it will ship on the 15th of March. We photograph the one we made and the photograph the one we receive....to post the one we received?

    DD, we may sing 'On the road' again in the virtual RV and dedicate it to you...OKsewGlad how nice the 4 yr old comes in that often and feels so much at home in your house. Easter bunny goodies will be mailed late for dgd s this month. One credit card took the 'auto' payment and the scheduled one as well this month ( I found out by noticing a minus figure in the bank account). After a 31 minute conversation with four 'reps' of the company, though four security checks, it is not suppose to happen again. We will see. Turns out the Fabric Depot had a third party 'steal' credit cards numbers last October through December...so that's how my credit card numbers were stolen then. They sent me a letter, so i now get a special one time discount with them.

    DDamsel ... I was about ready to dispatch a search party! Good thing that you showed up!!!!!!! Your birthday this weekend?

    QNSue ... I think you've got the dates right and photos are posted by the recipient after they get it. I've never had my CC compromised and am thankful, and pray I stay in the safe zone. Hope yours stays that way now, again.

    Honchey ... Hope you are getting lots of sewing time, amidst the "work"! Anything lusciously tempting in the shop while you;re there?

    QuiltE, I didn't see a MB yet

    In the NICU all is quiet so I'm going and try to get some sleep as well. As long as the SewGrands are ok, I'm too!

    Mirabelle....you are such a tease! It's like Christmas for me....I have to wait until the 25th.
    Janie...you've trained your son well. Isn't it nice to have someone notices what adds to your happiness and then they provide it?
    OK and Quilte...at least you're stippling! I'm getting closer to dipping in and trying it for myself. I'm thinking the Easy Street would be busy enough that I might start in that one and do QAYG but use a different method. We'll see.
    DD...you have so many adventures with your transportation! Good to hear from your again!
    QNS...what a nightmare to have someone using your account. I just had on of my email accounts hacked and that was enough!
    Honchey...yes these blocks are much bigger. That's why I didn't realize Carrie's was larger than needed.
    Anael...sweet dreams and rest well. Glad the Sewgrands are stable.
    i got my new project on the design wall and will finish the last two rows and borders tomorrow. I've never had a quilt go so fast. It was all strip quilting so the initial blocks went really fast.

    they have a new machine that I would love to have...it has almost everything except the sensor system...I would miss that too much....they have a tendency to have 3 machines in a series and come out with 2 at first then 6 - 9 months later a third one will come out...I'm going to play the waiting game on this series...I really don't need a new machine...I can play there anytime I want more or less...The Event next week has to do with 5D software for the embroidery machine...I have it already..I don't remember that much about it(software) anymore as I don't use it or do much embroidery...

    I can sleep late tomorrow!!!! then my class tomorrow afternoon...
