    You are welcome, CindyA. Enjoy. I can gain a couple of pounds just thinking about it. Found a Coconut Cake with six eggs that I am doing for this weekend...although I sold off 21 dozen yesterday, still have two or three dozen left. And a dozen duck eggs...from Khaki Campbell ducks. Guineas are not laying now; they lay in the spring and summer. Our Wal Mart had peaches and nectrines for fifty cents a pound; debated with self about freezing or canning some, but self declined that much work right now. If you measure with an inch worm, you might be able to say I am moving.....very slowly, at snail's pace.

    Frustratedquilter, I need borrow part of your name 'cause I am frustrated right now with myself. Took dh in to get more teeth pulled, came home about ten or ten thirty, tried to finish the SYE block. On the last section of the block, have rippped out about ten times, getting the wrong piece on, getting it backwards, with wrong side out, getting it in the wrong place, and just trimmed a piece off as 'extra' beyond the one fourth seam...but it was the right sized piece to begin with....GRRRrrrrrrrrr. Time to stop. Relax. Try not to feel sooooooo dizzy. It has not put me down, but the 5 to 15 seconds of extreme dizziness is getting me down. Doctor's office responded by rotating morning with evening blood pressure pill, so will try that and hope for the best.

    "Cause of my right knee I am moving slow...feel like its reliving those moments of "Mother, May I?" game, when the reply is "Yes, but baby steps!". If you measured with an inch worm, yes, I am moving. Time for this senior to take a nap...night all.

    QuiltingNanaSue, boy what a day you have had. Maybe the rest of the day you just need totake it easy and regroup and start fresh tomorrow. I know I had to re do a whole section I had to reprint and start again all my white on white was backwards and some area were to short on the edges to provide a good 1/4" to sew on to the other section. It was late so tossed it and started over the mext morning.

    You take care hopefully the dr got your meds adjusted and you will start to feel better. A nap sounds really good to me too

    Finished it; it brought me good luck, Frustratedquilter, to 'borrow' your name and it behaved so I could finished it now. Still have the one I cut out in blue...started. And may do a red one so the set of three could be a table runner. Will see what tomorrow brings, but if tomorrow turns out as today, I can put it off until tomorrow...its day has not come yet, then.

    DD, I could just sit back and be in a wheel chair, but I'd rather not (not get the cataracters removed and let someone see for me)...so its full steam ahead, but its just not a big boiler full of steam!! I think I can, I think I can, I think I can boiler full of steam.

    I have miles to go and quilts to make. Charge ahead!

    The September block is posted on QOTS site. It's lovely ... can't wait to get started.

    It's called "Tiger stripes" and with my color way I will indeed have a Tiger on the table!!
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    I agree what a great block and the name is very fitting

    Thanks, Mirabelle, for straightening me out on the directions, one more time. My eye missed the print before the directions and illustration.on post #142 Directions were given for #2 and illustration for #1 threw me for a while...went back to #433 and got it straight now. Its clearer than mud now...as the old saying goes...thanks for giving the measurements....are you ready with number three? Or will wait until after the 23rd of Sept??? That might throw me later with that block, since there may be a week that I may not be able to see. But that is Ok with me, too.

    Have a good day, everyone. Stay cool.

    It did. but I did not. Thanks for the help, I feel the need a lot of TLC these days Worked on different pattern for a quick change of pace. Changed bobbins in new machine and made a wrong move and had 3 different rat's nest form, but persisted and everything is working Ok, now except me. Lunch time. May you all have a good day.

    Sounds like a great time for a breather ... and a beer!!

    Tomorrow will be a better day.

    Thanks for the offer, but I will pass on the beer; never acquired a taste for it or coffee. Tea, I love Ice Tea or in the winter hot tea of a morning. Enjoy a Cherry Coke Cola, but lately, have left it alone. Looking at the pyramid and trying to balance meals..and eat them at the same time every day... without snacking too much. The break did help, more successful now.

    Hello I've just found this thread and would love to join in. I tried PP in the New York Beauty BOM and couldn't get it to work for me. I've done a bit more sewing and quilting since then (nearly a year) so I'll give it another go. May not be as fast as you all but that's OK. These blocks are so pretty. I've printed out some patterns and will look in my stash tonight to see what I can use.
    Everyday is a good day for Quilting!
