    QuiltE yes I did receive my threads and they are beautiful, will post a pic tomorrow. will also post a pic of the thread I am using to quilt Butterflies..
    JanieW I am with you on the curiosity, I can't stand surprises. I was the child who knew where all the hidey holes were in our house and knew where my grandmother would TRY and hide birthday presents, easter eggs and all that stuff.
    Even after I married (and my DH doesn't know this) as by then I had become an expert in taking tape off presents and rewrapping cause I just had to know what was in it. I really am terrible, so waiting on my MB is sheer torture for me
    Then there is the stress of what block to make, I think I have changed my mind at least 6 times on the April block. I really just need to make one and stop looking so I will quit confusing myself

    Anael...thanks for the update on the entire family. Eight weeks....is there any estimate on how much longer before they will consider sending the SewGrands home? QNS...I'm close relatively speaking for sure but I have 5 kids spead out over the continent and try to see some of them each year. Probably concentrate in the bunch in Illinois and Wisconsin since there will be a new DGS in late May. Take a deep breath, smile, and "enjoy" quilting with DH today. You won't always have that opportunity. Our snow is gone too but the cold is persisting. I've seen robins and a few tips of green but it's slow. Honchey...making these MB's and making a duplicate for ourselves is like having a friend design a quilt for each if us. I haven't found a 6 inche for Carrie's block so I'm thinking that I'll leave others large and have a mix if sizes. Mirabelle...aren't you a sneaky one! Well this one will surprise you? Love your Butterfly quilt. Your beautiful work just keeps nudging to become a FMQ'er. QuiltE..now that you've 'fessed up, you need to show us. The PC will go faster now that you've had this break. I did get the FQ and honestly my first reaction was not so happy. I had felt like I was buried trying to finish the PC and all I needed was another project. Since finishing the PC I have a different perspective and have an idea but could use more fabric. Could you tell me what the name of the print and maker is? Janie...although the FART was cancelled because of the snow, the snow will melt but I bet your son won't forget. Will you get home before your MB arrives? It's in the mail! OK...it's funny that when you are in the middle of being busy it's all so normal and you think nothing of all the juggling. That was me at one time too although we raised hogs. Listening to your life now since retiring....you're amazing! Thanks for the reminder of what a farmer's life is like! Glad your dreams are being fulfilled with the farm. Not every child wants to work that hard! Me?..no sewing over the weekend but have class at my LQS today. Have the new MB planned and can't wait to start it. Got to run. Have a good day everyone!

    GG, no, no estimate. Bram first has to show he can breath without meds. They're decreasing those meds but didn't stop them yet. He's still to small to have his first bath, they're both still on meds to help the brain remember to breath. Besides the neonatologist told us they have to stay in hospital till after due date, being April 28th. So if we're lucky they will be home in May. Good news is they might be transported to a hospital nearby in the near future. It's not sure though but the doctors are talking about it.

    What class do you attend? We don't have many classes here and the ones they're having I'm not so interested in.

    I can tell you all what Mirabelle and I were discussing.........colors for a MB So now you know :P

    GGal. I have a 6" pattern.. bring up the Quilterscache pattern for 12"...go to file on the tool bar not the little printer icon...go to print preview..you will see a "shrink to fit" option...click on it..click on 50% and it will print out the size you need...it will be a little 3" printout...you will need 4 of them to make the 6" block...I just did this for the first time and it came out perfectly!!!... I was trying like h--l on EQ7 but the drawing didn't look too good so I tried this method and it worked great...I'm thinking most printers have this option...if you can't do it..I can send you a pdf of it..I know how to do this now too..It seems I'm learning more technology along with pping blocks...

    Hello All! Like OK, I have been "eavesdropping" the last few days...

    The talk of spring is great...not here in Iowa yet. I woke this morning to an inch of snow and probably have about 2 more on the ground now. What we had was almost all melted over the weekend...oh well...spring will get here. At our old house I had lots of daffodils and tulips. Here there isn't a good place to grow them, so I haven't put any in. Anyone know what flowers grow well in shady, sandy soil? We have lots of hostas and ferns. The tiger (day) lilies grow, but don't bloom because by that time the trees have too many leaves.

    I am excited to get working on my next MB...need to choose a block and then fabrics. I don't work until Saturday this week so I want to decide before then in case I need to pick up something.

    Busy week here, oldest DD is on spring break, but will still have school (at home) with the other two. Tomorrow we are going out to lunch and then Wednesday I am taking them swimming. Thursday I have an appt w/neurologist for my migraines to see if there is anything she can do/suggest. The latest med (started in Feb) had some bad side-effects (got worse, not better) so I had to go off those even though they were helping with the headaches. Probably won't get much sewing done....maybe next week?

    Got thru my dentist appt this morning, though the side of my face is still partly frozen. All's good otherwise and it wasn't too gruelling. Freezing always seems to leave me wiped out though, so I did plan in my schedule for a quiet afternoon, knowing that. I rested for awhile, but am now restless, so am not sure if I am in the mood to sit and sew? Or what I am going to do?

    Honchey
    ... Looks like that might become a Spring Supper and you can skip the Corned Beef! Are you saying you're keeping your FFC project a secret ... gosh! NOT FAIR!

    QNSue ... Get your DH's Ducks all in a Row and abandon him for your own sewing. And what is your kit project? We'll look forward to seeing what each of you create today!

    JanieW ... yeaaaaaaa for being able to grow roots again, though I'm sure you will miss the Grands and your DDIL/DS. You'll all be in withdrawal for each other I'm sure ... and the FART will be sure to happen soon, I bet!

    MiraB ... too funny with all your snoopy-sneaky-ness! I bet you were in panic-mode when your PCBBs took ever-so-long to arrive down under! Glad your thread arrived and you were happy ... ready to place another order? April's MB I've decided, though not the fabric. However, I've been wondering if I should wait til I see what my MBPardner received for March and try to coordinate? or just wing it?

    GGal ... With kids all over the continent, does that mean you'll be coming to CANADA to see one? and me? Oh dear, I did not want to overwhelm you about the FFC ... it's supposed to be all about FUN!!!!!!!!!! (now this is starting to sound like Honchey talking, isn't it?) I'll check on the fabric I have here and get back to you on what it is. I may be asking everyone to check their stash for some more for my Out To Pasture. Surely, you can guess what it is!! I have enough, but just enough ... and i'm feeling just a little too close to want to cut it, in case I then become totally short.

    Anael and Honchey ... we'll just think of the two of you doing some clandestine work!

    Anael ... While I know you would all like to know the SewGrands would be home, I bet you are also content to know you have them ... even if they stay in the hospital for awhile. April will soon roll by, and that date will be achieved. Is there also a weight goal they have to reach before being allowed out of the NICU?

    GGal ... Honchey's suggestion is good for shrinking blocks down. Another way, if you have the feature with your printer/copier, you can use the reduction % on it. It seems that some things allow me to do it direct from the computer ... other things I have do the extra step and print then reduce with the printer/copier. I've also been using both methods to blow patterns up to whatever size I want. I'm really loving this new printer ... and of course, now ask myself why I waited so long to get it!

    CarrieM ... so sorry the meds didn't work in the full sense and hope the neurologist can get things sorted out for you. What a slave driver you are, to your DD and making her do schoolwork during Spring Break! What was the verdict about the State Team? Are your kids going to be competing? For your shady place, what about some impatiens? ... I know they are not perennials, but they can give some pops of colour amidst the hostas and are so minimal work all summer. You also might consider more and different hostas. They can give such a range of colours and be so lush looking as mass plantings. I never realized there were so many different possibilities til I was on a garden tour a few summers ago and saw some gardens totally done with hostas. How impressive!

    As for hopes of spring???
    It was still -7C this morning and now is getting mighty windy. We're supposed to get more snow every day this week ... allegedly only a couple centimetres each day. ONly time will tell! And FYI ... it's not uncommon for us to get a wicked storm the end of March or even the first week of April! The good news is ... at this time of the year, it never lasts too long!

    Need to look at that FFC; ignoring it so far, QuiltE. April is "SPRING" hopping toward you...so everyone can imagine the colors i used in my mystery block??? it's done!! Question still is how many more I can make in the time limits??

    Yep, Dh is doing fine with the pp project until "i had" him take too many color strips into his room for sewing, so its ripppppping time.

    Hi everyone
    its soooooo nice to hear the cheerful chatter Spring has Sprung!!! I feel so guilty out in my sundress today, scoping out a location for my new laundry line, and veggie garden grow beds! I feel guilty because I KNOW we will not have enough precip to last out the coming summer for as cold as it was this last winter we did not meet the precip hopes

    I had a FUN weekend at my sisters... she is a little crazy! her Bday is in Feb and mine in March, so we TRY to get together in between sometime to do something FUN. this year I drove up and picked up one sis, then over and picked up another, then down to the other sis house and then back to drop them each off! SIGH!!!!! I really spend TO MUCH time in the car. my odometer says I average 1,000 miles a month! sigh...... to bad I cant sew WHILE driving

    my sons birthday is coming up and I feel the sad times coming on I wish I had my nicu blankies finished to drop off but I just DONT. I will work on it and see if I cant get them done in the next month, heres hoping
    Candace is Deranged

    QE--Hope your mouth is more awake now and that you can do something productive this afternoon. I have bought some FQs to coordinate with the FFC, but haven't decided yet what to do with them.

    DD who is on spring break isn't having school. I just meant her brother and sister who are homeschooled will be having school. However my younger DD tried to get her to do her math. For archery...the HS and MS teams qualified for Nationals (in KY), but they don't have enough kids who can go so won't be taking a team. My kids are a little bummed since they went last year. In the past they could combine kids from two teams to make one/have enough, but the rules changed this year.

    I usually do buy some inpatients to plant by the house. I have a BIL who is a master gardener who specializes in hostas so we have a variety of those. MIL has lots and every time she cuts hers back they come here since we have lots of room and she doesn't.

    QNS--hope that you got DH set up and you are getting lots of sewing in today too! I look forward to seeing your new quilt.

    DD--sounds like you had a nice trip, lots of driving!! I often wish I could sew while doing other things.

    DD, sundress? Where are you? It's still quite cold here though I worked in the garden a bit this afternoon.
    I have a small garden, did grow some herbs last year and I want to have some veggies too this summer! Problem is my kitty is digging everything I put into the ground right up again Have to think of something there!

    QuiltE, I don't know if there is a weight goal for the twins. For some like allowed to wear cloths or take a bath there are but leaving the NICU? I have no idea. They're both still in the incubator so they have to get out of those first.

    I finished my PC Blocks!
    I finished my PC Blocks!!
    I finished my PC Blocks!!!

    QNSue ... Keener to have April's done already. You wonder if you will get the others done on time? You could do them all this month! I have faith you will join us with the FFC, after you get a few more things done.

    DDamsel .... {{{HUGS}}} to help you thru your sad times. I'm SO happy that you had a good Birthday weekend with your sisters. As for sundresses .... hard to imagine that!!! Granted a year ago today it was an extremely abnormal +23C. Today -7C!

    CarrieM ... yes, my mouth woke up ... and I made the rest of my PC Blocks!!! (Just in case you didn't see it above!! OH too bad for your kids and the Nationals. Just NOT FAIR! Lucky you to have BIL and MIL to share their cast off plants! I have done a lot of interplanting on the edge of the bush here. One that gives me good spring colour is Periwinkle. So pretty then! Good for you for collecting FFC coordinates, even in not deciding what they will become!

    Anael ... another early springer ... working in the gardens? I guess I am going to have to show all of you a picture of my yard and lawn! I asked about the weight, because I know there is one here. Of course, along with other accomplishments and stages as you already know.

    BTW ... Did I tell everyone that I finished my PC Blocks?

    Wow a sundress. We had snow again. Kids out early and all 5 descended after noon until about 3:00. I was ready for them to do home!! GGal the "amazing" Grandma got a little short tempered today as she's only human!
    Carrie--too bad meds aren't working. Haven't had a migrane in a long while and can't imagine how you manage with them. Hope you can get long lasting relief soon. How about bleeding hearts in your shade? They have a lot of foliage until mid summer when they die back, but I bet they would last longer in the shade. For perennial climbers would a sweet pea work? Mine does well on the east side of the house near the lower level so lots of afternoon shade.
    QE--I feel the same way after a dental appointment and learned to take it easy as well. Are you getting this blast of snow from the Midwest too? All right I just checked the thread as I'm getting this post together and see that you have your PC's done. Whoopee!!! I'm so envious.
    QNS--I can't imagine having to share my sewing space with my DH! I guess DH and I have worked together so much over the years that I like my quilting time away from him.
    Well if you'd lie to mosey over to these two threads and see what I have accomplished I guess I can whopee, too!

    I had a great trip. DD & #2DS & I had a long talk on Thurs. night. #2 DS was so excited ta git ta play w/his Niece & nephew. DM & DGM came in on Fri. DH came in Sat morn. We had great meals, a good time sewin', watched some good movies, & I went ta a special meetin' ta rewrite the bylaws for the homeowners association.
    DGM did throw a few fits while there. I guess at 93 she has lost her "filters" & thinks she can do or say anything. On Sat we had a very late breakfast & I offered her lunch twice only ta be turned down. Then at 4:00 she threw a fit about nobody eattin' lunch. DM made her a sandwhich. We then had supper at 5:00 LOL ('cause I had that meetin' at 6:00.) Yesterday, after everybody else went home, all that were there were DM DGM & I. DM said that she wanted her Sunday nap. DGM said that she wanted ta read. So I sewed & washed some old linens that had been in storage till now. DM woke at 5:30. We talked while I frog stitched the last row in my PC friendship quilt (for the second time, as I had sewed it back on exactly the same wrong way again.) I asked at 6 if they wanted ta eat & DGM said that she couldn't eat that "early." At 7:00 she said that she wanted ta go & see Vicky as soon as she got out o' church. Well Vickie's church would relise at 7:00 & it would take her about 30 min.s ta git home. (If ya consider that she would talk a bit then a 12 min. drive home.) In the meantime, DGM fell asleep. At 8:00 DM & I were starvin' so we got the leftovers out & fixed the meal. DGM grudgingly ate too. Then she went ta change her undergarment. It took 30Min.s. (Her Dr prescribed support hose are so hard ta pull up & all her movements are very slow.) At 9:00 she was gonna go over there unannounced. Vickie has canceled her land line & DGM didn't have her address book, so we couldn't call. We wouldn't let her go over there. She said that I had been too busy all day ta take her over there. Then she griped about DM's nap bein' too long. She fussed at DM & I for 30 min.s. Why didn't she say that she wanted ta go & see Vicky earlier in the day? I could have taken her or DM would have taken a shorter nap & then taken her. Argue. I do feel for my DM.
    Taday DGM was so much sweeter. She was patient while I vacuumed & wash the sheets that were used while we were there. She even arraigned my afghan on ta my couch. It would have taken me 1 min but she took 15 min.s. It does look good! The beds are all made & the floors downstairs are all clean the house feels welcomin'. Now we are home.

    Clapping for QuiltE, well done on finishing your PC blocks.

    I have put the butterfly quilt aside for a few days and concentrated on April's MB today, its half done

    Anael I have been in shorts and sleeveless t-shirt today with airconditioner going I can't imagine living in such cold climates.

    Had a bit of running around to do today, first drop off DH's vehicle for a service, then take both the dogs to the vet for their annual checkup and needles ($300 later) its hilarious with them in the car as they won't stop barking and both want to sit on my lap but of course I am driving so DH sits in the back seat with them and the windows wound down. definitely a kodak moment.

    Haven't taken a photo of my threads today but will do it tomorrow, DH leaves for work around 10am tomorrow then it is full steam ahead on MB's and butterly quilt and cleaning up my sewing room.

    Bev I hope things get better for you, I bet your DGM is cranky at growing old...

    QE--congrats on getting those last few PC blocks done! Now comes the fun of setting them.

    OK--your baby quilts are great and I am sure will be much appreciated. Also your table topper is a nice too...I recognize some KT fabrics in the middle.

    Dublb--good to have you back. Sounds like for the most part the trip to Brady was a good one. I am sure your DM appreciated having some help with DGM for the last few days.

    Mirabelle--gotta love those vet bills. I have to take one of our dogs to the vet this morning...she split her nail pretty bad...not looking forward to that bill. It's nice to get the errands done though so you can get back to sewing.

    Thanks Everyone!
    I slept well, despite my excitement with their completion!
    Next the cornerstones and sashings .... and as CarrieM mentioned, the fun part of deciding the placements!
    Although, when doing the FWS, I found that stage more frustration than FUN ... but the results are well worth the struggles!!

    OKSGlad ... busy busy busy ... quilts and Grands! Thanks (NOT!) for sending the storm this way too ... a little each day, but not a wicked blast. Not Yet, anyway. All could change ... and with my luck that will be Friday night when I have to go away. Good idea on Bleeding ♥s for CarrieM. They can put on such a nice show and a nice change of height above most hostas. Great assortment of Little Quilts you've completed and will be giving to a much appreciated location. I really like the tailored look of your runner! Hope you are keeping it for yourself!

    DublB ... Remember the good times of the GTG, and {{{HUG}}} your Mom for what she endures when solo. I'm sure your Mom really appreciated the time with everyone, even if not able to have a break from DGM's care.

    MiraB ... careful! you're almost making it sound that you're glad to see your DH out the door and on his way back to work! Comical, you chauffeuring, and DH and the pups enjoying the back seat! Another keener with your MB ... you do know this is still MARCH, and not APRIL!! And priorities are your DDs birthday quilt! Or are you suggesting my Out to Pasture gave you the realization you needed the break?

    CarrieM ... Poor Puppers and his/her nail! Travel safely in your latest snow and blow!

    Back from the vet....thankfully she was able to just clip the nail way back and surprisingly they only charged me for a "nail clipping" ($10)...I expected an office visit charge too since we saw the vet. Beatrice is staying in the other room on the couch away from everyone so no one touches her foot, but at least isn't in the pain she was before.

    Roads were worse going in than coming home...things thawed a bit. I stopped to get lunch for the kids since today was the day we were going to go out. They were ok with that...it was better than leftovers.

    QuiltE, congrats on finishing Now to decide how to put it together!

    Bev, big (((HUG))) for you and your mom. I'm sure she's having hard times with your DGM.

    I worked on my FWS today. One block took almost all afternoon (coffeebreaks included ). I love the endresult but not all the work. When the Pinetree block was finished I saw I had one small block sewn the wrong way. I thought about keeping it that way but the more I looked at it the less I liked it so it was ripping time! Now it looks ok. Tomorrow I'm gone most of the day so this row will have to wait till tomorrow night or Thursday.

    Bram and Isa are still ok. Sleeping most of the time and so they should!
    Eat, quilt, sleep, repeat

    I see Honchey has an announcement ... one here too,
    ................ my final PC blocks have been posted for your viewing ... check weeks 40, 44 and 45!
    Now onwards to the next stage ... sashings/cornerstones and then the hard part of placement!

    ... Glad your vet bill was minimal. Am sure the kids enjoyed the "treat" lunch!

    Anael ... oh I know all about how long some of those blocks took. Thank goodness I didn't keep track though ... would have been too depressing. I'm sure! Glad our SewGrands are sleeping away ... important for them to grow on!

    Honchey ... I think it's a great idea ... the sooner they get out with the snails, the sooner we all get to ENJOY them!!! ....... and not just your QI, Anael!

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Sew many ideas ... just sew little time!!
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    I am ready to send out my MB whenever the "ok" is given.

    Anael--glad the twins continue to do well. I remember some of the PC blocks taking me longer than I thought they would...some of those blocks just have so many pieces!

    Yes, triple yes, can i stuff the ballot box with yes, Anne. About four days or less, someone should have their 'mystery block!".

    Love your last blocks of your PC, QuiltE...perfect job, one to celebrate and turn cartwheels.!!

    Had to pick up bp prescription today, so combined tasks today, picked up a new cutting board and rotary cutter and machine needles; dh's grease for the tiller, and a few fresh veggies and fruits. Posted package to dd of the 'lefted behind' dgs things. Wore out the old rotary cutter and board. Spring flowers are coming on up. Need to move the guineas and ducks soon, so flowers can spring on up without going eaten off on their exposed greenery. My bleeding hearts love the sun all day...some plants love the shade...ask your local nursery store for suggestions, Carrie. Woodland wild flowers like violets, would be great.
