    Thank you, Sauki. Your avatar is hilarious! Is she dressed for Halloween?

    Had my hip replacement on Monday the 15th and while getting ready to come home on the 16th went south with resperatory failure. Ended up in ICU for 4 days. they thought I might have thrown an emybolis or had a heart attack. Will the CT scan of the lungs showed a very small area of pneumonia, had an arteriogram and all is very clean for my age, Finally made it home on Monday, 6 days late. This is my first day on the computer.

    Love all the fabrics. Have a lot of ideas so when able to walk more in my own will get fabric then. Am printing off the instructions and so far looks good. Am waiting for tomorrow.

    Good grief, grandme26. Glad you are all better. That didn't sound good at all. Welcome back.

    Just putting in my 2cents, here- really hope you don't mind. didn't Judy say something earlier about C to be darker than D? not sure if I am correct and if not I heartily apologize and will go back to lurker mode ( just checking out the mystery again with interest as I am a newbie quilter and no time to start something right now before other Christmas projects) I love seeing what fabrics you all pick and the outcome.

Opinions, please?

    I slipped and fell in the living room yesterday, managed to pick myself up and go to quilt guild meeting. Soreness started last night, and this morning I found a rather large bruise on my left side. Today I didn't feel like doing anything, but I did manage to take a sewing machine to my dealer to get worked on. Hopefully tomorrow I'll be right as rain and ready to start on clue #3!

    katybob, what part of Louisiana are you in? Evidently it's south if your in the hurricane zone.

    Pat, I'm in Baton Rouge. We've had enough hurricanes the last few years to last a lifetime and I sure feel for those folks who at the least are going to get some really lousy weather. It's bad enough to be without electricity in August or September here, but it's getting cold up there!

    Looks great. but you might want to flip flop A and B as I think A is supposed to be lighter than B but I could be wrong. Good fabrics

    Grandme26, I certainly am glad you are home from the hospital after that scare! Get well real soon and I'll be waiting to see your fabric and blocks!

    Labeelady and grandme26 I am so sorry to hear of your recent bouts of trouble. I sure hope they are behind you now and that you can have a smoother ride on into November.

    The process I believe is A is lighter than B. C is darker than D. B should look ok next to C and EF are to match one of the pairs a/b or c/d. they are to make things pop so it seems one dark one light and bold. I have yet to decide on E and F just working on the first four. Judy said ok until week 5 so I am good for now for another.. two weeks come tomorrow. I think if you look at it that way its not so hard do part to start and see how your feeling about your e/f as your going ..unless you live in the woods like me you wont need more than a week to order something online. I love the choices however coming up. A couple small tweeks and really just keep those simple rules above in mind and you should be happy. No large prints just small or medium was the other rule. If your questioning is it a large print its a large print most likely and maybe find something a bit smaller so you wont lose the pattern/overall color when cut.

    So until Judy is back guess we have to trust our own instincts. Lucky part is its only so many parts per week so if you hate what your doing, back to square 2 or 1 isnt that far back. Jeanie G love your signature.. I guess I have not made nearly enough quilts yet in my life. Phew!

    No! And I've missed Amelia's so much this past year. What I thought was our only remaining LQS often isn't open when I can get there and doesn't carry a lot of the traditional fabric that I prefer.

    Good morning everyone. I was in contact with Judy last night. She had a bad spasm in her back. She is doing much better and is in rehab. Do not know yet when she will be home. Luckily todays clue is easy. If she is not home by next week she may have to postpone the next clue. I will try to keep you updated but she cannot get to a computer often.

    CLUE 3

    Make 24 HST using the same directions as last week only using fabrics C/D. Blocks will be 6 1/2" square.

    HEY I GOT THEM YIPPEE before I left the house at that! Thank you very much for the new instructions and also please pass on from all of us (speaking for all) that we wish her well soon and that she recovers enough in rehab to start functioning regularly again. I am so sorry she has to go there at all. Lots of work getting things back where they are supposed to be.

    Grandme26 - Oh My !! Glad you're starting to feel better but can't believe you're on the computer after all you've been through. Take care of yourself. I'm saving the steps right now but trying to find time to be able to join the ride.

    PokerDiva - Tell Judy we're sending our well wishes.

    If anybody talks to Judy can you please ask her this question?

    I have a new neighbor teenage girl who is interested in learning to make a quilt.

    I know she can handle clues 1-3 but unsure of how difficult the rest is going to be.

    Please ask if the rest of the instructions are going to be really complicated.

    Thanks

    P.S. I want her to learn so much that I'm PIF a very simple machine to her. Yes it is old and only does straight stitch and zig zag. But so far for quilting I only use straight stitch. Maybe I should just suggest to mom - the jenome hello kitty or wait till black friday. What do you think?

    Karen, I will ask her but if the last mysteries Judy has done are any indication. I think it will be fine especially if you are there to help her but I will still ask.

    Karen, if the girl can handle HSTs, then she will be fine, IMO. As far as a machine goes, if the older one sews well, oil and clean and it will be better than any new one in the lower price range. Personally, I prefer a straight stitch only for piecing. I think you will find several of us here sewing on vintage machines, especially Singer 301s and 15s.
