    I hope that Judy is doing better and is home now mending?????? Take care of yourself. You can lie down in the top viewing car and I will wait on you. What ever you want it is coming up. Chocolate, chicken noodle soup (home made) you name it.

    Nancia your dots are the cutest think I have ever seen. I will be looking at that one to see what it looks like when finished. I love the red and pink ones together. Also the blue/green and the blue white. What a fun quilt that will be.

    Moda fabric. It's a fairly new line, I think.

    Godschild, I'd like to put in a request for Pavlova. It's been 15 years since I was there but, boy, do I remember that yummy dessert. Might as well bring some Australian hamburgers too. I can't remember all the toppings they use.....fried egg, pineapple ring, pickled beets. What else do they put on? They were so good!
    I don't know if I will get my hst done today. Tomorrow I am leaving for Houston for the quilt show so I've got quite a list of things to get done before then.
    Stay safe everyone. Too many scary things going on with this weather.

    All the talk about chocolate. Ummm. Sounds so good. Speaking of chocolate, being the ADD/OCD person that I am, I am working on some test Log Cabin blocks using a jelly roll of the Double Chocolat, Three Sisters line by Moda.

    Of course that is after completing Clue 3. Now do I get some chocolate? Or better yet, I would love some of that Australian coffee with perhaps a splash of chocolate in it.

    The pics of my blocks are so icky. Actually the colors are more vibrant with a very pretty mauvey pink.

    funny nancia, my last one goes camping/rock climbing with my GS & GDIL it is so bright she can signal him from camp when he is up the side of a rock.......or alternately they could use it for marking a landing pad for a heliocopter rescue.
    my GS loves it ...he can see it....he is colorblind.

    That's what Judy said would happen if stripes were used...that's why I decided to put my rick rack fabric on the back...it would bother me! But you're stripes are small...so I wouldn't be bothered by that. I like your squiggly fabric too.

    I finished my part 3 blocks and wish I had some of this green shade to use in the E/F part ok the F part lots of pink showing so far but its ok A is much lighter than my D which is much lighter than C so its all good so far. Phew! now onto real business. the deal is I dont want to bake. The truth is I had better sweets are getting thin here. Poor DH he has a sweet tooth the state of Texas in size. I have coconut and chocolate chips and also butter scotch chips so I guess I have enough of something to make something that will please him just need to figure out what. oh and peanut butter have that too.. too bad he doesnt like oatmeal so that kicks that out, and no raisens or dates or apricots.. so if it sounds healthier forget it. this will be fun. send ideas my way gladly open to new cookies to make.Name:  mystery train week 3.jpg

    Hello my friends. This was nice for you stopping to pick me up. As usual I just found this thread and am giddy with excitement. Our Big Lots have 6 yard quilt kits for $15 dollars. I had bought one a while back and did not know what to do with this. I was sitting at the store this morning at 8:30 so I could get in first when they opened. Was so happy to see they had another set to match what I had. So I am now going through getting the instructions. The applecake bites drizzeled with caramel are waiting for you all to try. I also have brewed you some chocolate raspberry coffee. Enjoy,
    Angel Wings, Butterfly Kisses and Faere Dust for all!!!!

    Same here. Might jump off the train for a dash to Big Lots to check them out.

    Has anyone found out how Judy is doing? We are missing our head train engineer.

    You guys! I jumped on this train and never asked where we would be going!!! yikes! I guess I am in for a wild adventure with this crowd. I wonder if we will be adding boxcars along the way for the xtra room for food we might be needing? I will have some of those apple bites oh yes I will and did you mention coffee? heaven I am in heaven.. two of my favorite foods lol coffee is a food in my book as well without I .. am not good. not good at all. I didnt know big lots carried fabric either.. where in the store is it located? near towels, kitchen is there a fabric section? big store where to look curiosity makes me ask.

    I'm baaaccckkkkk!!!

    Still in rehab, will probably be here another couple days. Just started being able to get out of bed alone. Doc was in the morning, will make decision tomorrow. So.... really really hoping for Wednesday.

    I may not be able to get to the computer for a few days.

    Florence, thank you so much for posting last Saturday. And thanks to all of you who sent good wishes my way.

    So, skim for your name and hopefully no one has been left out. All of you out gave good suggestions to the questions asked

    BELFRYBAT -- I know you had so much indecision in your choices, hope it hasn't stressed you out. But now that you have seen some of the HST made and put together, I'll bet you are ok.

    KATYBOB -- A and B plus ?. Then C and D - C should be darker than D. DON'T use both browns - too close in value.

    GRETCHEN -- my preference is the bottom photo. Dont forget - C should be darker than D

    KAREN R -- as irishrose said, if she can make a good square HQT she can do this -- but it may be a bit daunting if she is truly just learning to quilt. perhaps you can go to the first mystery I did last February, I think it was, and let her try that, it is only 44" square I think.

    VICKIE G beautiful!


    SHADOWIRISH -- ABCD are great, make your EF decision when you need those fabrics.

    ELISABRAT

    GRANNAMARY very nice

    [COLOR="#FF0000"]

    QUEEN OF 2802 -- pretty fabrics. Keep in mind, f you use stripes they will not go all the same direction

    KAREN BOB - great choices!
    and last but not least --Good job and geat fabrics:

    NELCO good job, great colors.
