    so many goodies to choose from. that 0 calories sounds good. maybe some "jelly rolls" in luscious colors and prints would be in order.

    keep up the ride while we are waiting for that next clue.

    happy thursday all.

    Jenniky, the squares are great. The brownies were better.

    In my mind you can never get enough chocolate. However, I have a craving for cheesecake, so on my day I will make some small cheesecake tarts.

    Some of "us" are getting to much done it looks like. I made pillowcases today and took a wheelchair walk with Mom.

    Not much else happening here. The sun is out but a bit of wind . Oops Mom needs help - talk to all later.

    OK fellow travelers. What happened to the wine and cheese? Did I miss out??? All of the sweets sound so yummy but I am not a sweet lover. Well, except for Godiva chocolates.

    Lovelyl, YES...about the motion sickness. I didn't even notice that I hadn't felt it at all!! But I did notice that with all the wonderful red wine and cheese the other night, I didn't even have a headache. LOVE this train.

    Wine and cheese are givens. Chocolates are the "extras". Oh, Judy is going to have so much fun if she gets an air ride.

    Yes the cheesecake tarts are the ones with the raspberry sauce. I picked the raspberries last summer. Thought it would be great to be home and pick the suckers. After 3 days, I gave up that idea. One day I picked 7 qts and walked to the neighbors and gave them away - with a smile on my face and a "please take these". This summer I might throw 50 plants instead of the 30. Oh well, nice way to get some sun and fresh air.

    Have been going through my stash and came up with 3 more UFO's. I think they multiply when I'm not looking. But I found some wonderful fabric for another "mystery".

    Your nice bright star makes me think of the poem "Star light, star bright, first star...' You know the rest. You have a great star there to wish upon! BTW, I was raised in Warren and go back and visit each summer.

    Everose, kids love to pick berries. You might want to recruit some. I have some golden raspberries but most get eaten before they ever make it to the house. We love raspberry jam around here. Wish you could send me your extra! Oh, and raspberry sauce/frosting on top of lemon cake.....divine!

    h yes, jelly rolls would be perfect for this mystery, and we could have layer cakes too.

    Dotty, I am sure resizing is your problem. If you try to upload, and it says the uload failed, you need to resize. The old board took any photos, but not this one. I've found that closeups of small blocks work as is, but big pictures, like you take a pix of a quilt, it gets too big. Go to the edit function, put in a horizontal of 640 pixels, change and save the changes, and you will be good to go. PM me if you want.

    Dotty: I am having success with Picasa from Google. First, you download the free program to your computer. Then, you open Picasa, find your photos files, and 'export' the photos you want to post, resizing the photos in the export process. Then, when you're in QB, you browse to your Picasa folder, then your Export folder, then click on the photo you want to show in your post, 'Open' it, upload it, wait for the name of the photo to show up, then 'close this window'.

    I am not a nerd, so I had to work to figure this out! Good luck!

    Dotty, I have seen google's picassa referred to well before. I've not used it, so can't say how easy it is. I use paint.net. It is also a free download and is for all kinds of photo adjustments. I find it very easy to use to resize photos. I made a photo tutorial for a QB friend about posting pictures, which I could send in an email to you, but it refers to paint.net steps and wouldn't help if you want to use another program. PM me if you want me to send you the tute.

Size:  82.2 KBYes, those are hearses. I also have black background with hot pink hearses. That will be a vest. I plan to do another block with the white hearse fabric in the centre and the black hearse fabric in the strips. Then, make it into another Halloween quilt. Have to finish quilting my Orient Express first.
