    OMG - so much chatter today. I had a dental appt. this morning, then had some shopping to do. Joe and I did not get home until 2:30. Then I decided I needed a nap. I've got meat loaf in the oven for dinner.

    I'm finished with my MB's as well, okay with me to post whenever you give the word!

    I'll vote "yes", Anne. I'm so anxious to see all the blocks it's been hard to wait til the 25th to mail. Just give the go ahead after you tally up the votes!

    Lots of catching up tonight. I've worked so much I've fallen behind and this is one chatty group. So happy to just sit and read all your posts. Everyone sounds busy and productive. First day of Spring tomorrow.

    Oh I must get a picture taken. Took me a while to get the baby blankets taken last night that I forgot about the MB, so will do that tonight, then get it ready to send off. In other words mine is staying stateside!!!
    Then onto block # 2--does it or doesn't it need to be in the mail by April 15th. Only Anne and I know!!!!!!
    Emily was just reading over my shoulder so I zoomed in on QNS so she could get a better look at her adopted SewGram. She liked what she saw
    Soon we'll be seeing QE's magnificent finale. Yeah!

    Thanks for the vote of Grandma, OksoGlad!!. Grey hair, round belly, and a heart that loves all kids. Send a box, 12x12x10, off to grandson today filled with bluejeans and sweat pants his size...and his blue pair that got left here. Love the tales of all Grandmothers on PC about their gk or Mothers about their kids and the pictures are all priceless!!
    Maybe someday i can meet some of these special children!! The future is not ours to see!

    A question for Anne! Does the person sending the block post the photo of what she sent after the recipient receives it, or does the recipient take and post a photo? I'm kind of confused on how you want that to work.

    I'm thinking that I wanted the sender to have a photo in case of an emergency...lost block, damaged block etc...I think it would be best for the person receiving the block should post a photo of it unless she cannot do it then the sender can post it for her...OK ??

    JeanieG I think the recipient was to take the photo and post it, is that right Anne?? We just send a photo to Anael if we want her to see what we are making for our mystery person..

    My March block should be somewhere in the US now or maybe Canada who knows?????

    I tried to take a photo of my Tristan threads but the flash is bouncing back at me, so imagine that I bought 6 reels of variegated rainbow threads and 6 reels of a beige, not really exciting until I get to use them. Also someone asked me what threads I was using on the Butterfly quilt. The main body is being quilting in a thread called Magnifico, it has a lovely shine to it and with the background fabric being Fairy Frost it is a match made in heaven. The coloured squares are being quilted in a King Tut thread called Jewel of the Nile, purples, greens, yellows and blue vareigated.

    QuiltE just felt like I needed a break from the heavy duty quilting so decided to make my April MB, should have stuck with the quilting. Will definitely NOT be making a 6 inch block with this pattern 132 pieces in 6 inches spells nervous breakdown to me. Friday I plan on getting back to the quilt, DH went back to work today so the house is quiet again.

    Have a great day everyone

    Oh such good news that the MBs will be in the mail ASAP!!!!!!!!! I can't wait! I can't wait! I can't wait! ........ I guess I will have to !


    JanRN
    ... what's up with all this work? staff all sick with the plague? or off on holidays to the sunny south? Though I know you are glad to make the extra $$ to save for your spree in Cleveland!

    OKSGlad ... don't get your hopes up for a quick finale! Although I was thinking tonight, I could get the sashings/cornerstones on fast enough. The slow part will be to decide on placement ... want to come and help me with that step? I'm wondering if I could be ready to sew them together on Easter weekend? Looks like there'll be an OKSGlad and Grands roadtrip this summer to visit their new SewGram!

    JeanieG ... hope your dental appt wasn't too bad. mmmmmmm meatloaf!

    MiraB ... *gasp* 132 pieces in a 12" block is crazy enough! WOW! didn't realize the fabric for the butterflies was were all Fairy Frost! It will be ever-so elegant looking.

    QuiltE I had to revise the number of pieces, got the calculator out, 137 pieces missed a few. E-mailed a pic to Anael and it has her tick of approval
    The background fabric for Butterflies is Fairy Frost Butterscotch and the rest is batiks, the green border is a Jinny Beyer fabric so mixing it up a little..
    April block is finished now to get some other projects finished

    OOooohhhhhhh blocks will start winging their way to their destinations, who will get theirs first mmmmmm?????

    Anael...I belong to the Marti &Me Club at our LQS and once a month we get a new pattern with tips of the templates used and then we have 3 hours to sew on out M&M BOM. I've learned as much from my classmates as from the instructor...she's not a natural born teacher but still does an adequate job. I found that the FWS blocks take as much or more time than a 12 inch. The sewing has to be much more precise. Honchey....thanks for the pattern. I haven't printed it out yet. Also thanks for moving up the mailing date. My first one MB for this month was too big too...so I have a little stitching to do on the second one but will get it in the mail ASAP. Carrie..I do hope you get some relief from the migraines. They are so uncomfortable! How are the plans for the new clubhouse coming? QuiltE...with 5 families to visit I probably won't be taking other long trips. BTW...happy dance for getting the PC blocks done! ALL..what is FCC? Talking in shorthand confuses me sometimes. DD....living in the country always means more miles! OK...amazing doesn't mean you aren't human! Love the table runner and baby things. Dubib..I agree that you DM probably enjoyed having a change of scenery and shared responsibility this past weekend. None of us know how we will act when we get older and you DGM didn't plan to be difficult...Jan...good to hear from you. Your FART is next week isn't it? Mirabelle....did you use a Pam Bono pattern!? Although I just looked at a planned block and it has around 80 so I guess 130+ isn't totally over the top. Me..I took THREE quilts to be quilted yesterday! I had to put borders on a lap quilt and get all of the backs ready. Today my DD and her son will be stopping in for an overnight on their way from TN to WI. Didn't find out until last night the exact time she would be here so there is some cleaning to attend to and no sewing today. Have a great day!

    GG, I'm with you on the shorthand talk
    I have a few sets of the Marti templates but I don't like them, maybe I should glue small pieces of sandpaper on the back of the templates? They keep sliding while cutting so I don't use them.
    It must be nice to belong to a group/club! I'm not a group person but it gets lonely in here sometimes!

    Oksewglad, what a lovely table runner! I love the design and the fabrics you used!

    MiraB ... when the number gets that high, who can count? Glad I'm not the only one who mixes up fabric lines. In fact, most times I have NO CLUE as to what the fabric is!

    GGal ... How wonderful that you have your DD dropping by! I think the FCC you are asking about would be FFC? Fabric Friends Challenge ... the FQ that CarrieM sent out for me, along with the PC Bonus Blocks. There should have been a note explaining all about it. If not, let me know and I'll send you another copy.

    GardenGal and OksewGlad, sounds like Spring to me when company shows up a little more!! It gets us out of the Quilt Room, and back in the kitchen! Or like Dublb, on the road again. But that is the way in the Western States of the USA, a far piece of road between two places...Dublb, how many photos are there of five generations (of woman) in your family? Your DGM,DM and you and a daughter or son, and their child? In New Mexico, people would laugh and say we drove a hundred miles to eat lunch and back again. LOL! That was before gas prices rose to the moon.

    Back into the quilt room today for me. Enough food prepared in the kitchen, or ready to prepare, so I can sew sew today with dh who has moved his sewing machines into his room, so I am by myself in the quilt room working. He comes and goes, but does not work in there with me any longer. I get too grumpy sometimes; its a wonder we have made it together for 47 years. Very cold outside, with snow on the ground this morning...Spring is delayed a bit.

    It's cold here too, no working in the garden and not in the near future either. It's staying cold
    QNS, 47 years! That's a long time together.

    Yep, Anael, it is a lifetime sentence for the both of us. We were married by Rev.Priest, so we can double those years, and sometimes it seems to triple!! Late for our own wedding, 'cause I had to stop and buy my niece a saddle for her little pony...she was turning three that year. Like my dgm, I repeat what she said after 35 years of marriage to dgf when he died, "Lord gave me a good man; no other man will ever do." My postscript, "And, Lord, that that was enough for several lifetimes...really do not want another one!!" LOL!!

    Laughter is the best medicine in life. If you can find humor in life, it makes the rest of life easier to bear. Laugh and the world will laugh with you. Cry and complain, and the rest of the world moves on to other things. Dgm was only five foot two, and just as wide as tall, according to her and her dh, but her funny bone was much bigger; no matter what life did, she would look around for something to laugh about one way or another. Never made fun of anyone, except herself. Always said as she passed the main dishes around again at the table, "Come on, kid, borrow my belly stretcher, and have some more to eat!"
