    Cindy, I think that is a sign for your dates.

    Congratulations JuneBillie. That is awesome. Enjoy your winnings. I am taking a class tomorrow that is miniature paper piecing. It is supposed to be a new easier method of PP. I plan to use the batiks I won on this project.
    I am 13 weeks and craving bubblegum. (it should have been something chocolate)

    So my 17 yr old son just told me that he cut out snacks this week and lost 8 lbs. A little envious here. He wrestles and is working on increasing strength and endurance. After wrestling season he plays rugby.

    My hair dresser told me she keeps a package of fresh spinach in her freezer and crumbles it over different dishes during the week. I may have mentioned this before. I have a package in the freezer and am going to try it with some vegetable stew I made.

    I'm in again and will send my fat quarter asap.

    Keep up the good work.

    I agree with you on a smaller group bigger chance of winning the pot.

    Tonight has been a down pour of rain. Smells so fresh though. It's been a lazy day. Any one working on some Christmas projects?

    I am working on a Christmas present tonight. I am making a fleece blanket for my SonIL. It is Packer fleece. Feels good on my lap while I am tying it since it is pretty chilly here.
    Drove to Iowa for the weekend to visit my mom. I can see that she is not getting around as well as she used to. It's good that she lives in a tri-level house because the only exercise she gets is going up and down the stairs to the bathroom and then to bed. She spent the summer sitting and reading. I wish she would realize that she needs to do a little exercising to keep her mobility. She had a pulmonary embolism several years ago and says that it hurts her legs to walk very far.
    Did anyone watch the Ellen show on friday? The couple that had their house made over for the HGTV cousins show is from the town where I grew up. It was strange to hear them say Panora, IA on tv. I really didn't like what they did with the house. Oh well.
    I've been having migraines everyday with this low pressure front hanging over us. We need the rain but I sure am tired of the headaches.

    I finally finished quilting the boarders for my newest Grand son's quilt. today I will try and get the binding on. He is only 9 1/2 months......
    I also quilted 2 small quilts for my 3rd daughter's classroom. She got her first full-time teaching position this year. She is a TK (Transitional Kindergarten) teacher. Basically the kids who are still 4 and didn't turn 5 before October 2. These 28 kids are all going to be 5 before December 2. She would have preferred older kids (4th or 5th grade) but this is where she is. I made 2 quilts for her reading corner.
    I also got one other lap size quilt quilted that is going to be donated to our guild. I got all the bindings cut last night and hope to get them on the quilts by machine today and then hand sewn this week.
    I had been avoiding my machine. It still has 2 - 1/4" lines coming down across the screen. The part won't be available until the end of the year. It was making me depressed just thinking about it. But I had been playing games on the computer so much that I am having issues with pain in my elbow. It doesn't bother me as much to sew. Guess I should do some sewing and stop playing LOTRO!
    I hope to get started on some fall garden stuff today. I bought some spinach, snow peas, pole beans and kale plants to put in the ground as well as broccoli, 3 kids of lettuce, spinach, green onion, kale and snow pea seeds I want to sew. We have very mild winters around here. I have never done a fall/winter garden but thought I would try. My tomatoes did not do well this year, we had a cold, foggy summer and they did not like that, Neither did the zucchini and yellow squash plants. I still have peppers producing though.
    It was 92 degrees or hotter the last 3 days. Today is supposed to be only 82 and maybe some rain by Wednesday. That would be great. We had the Santa Ana's blowing over the weekend and everything is bone dry!

    Looks like I am 13 weeks and craving pickles. Hey that sounds good. Maybe I will have a pickle later....


    My newest Grandson, Caleb Austin, was born May 29th. I am now Grandma to 4 precious babies. I am so blessed!!!!

    I mailed my FQ today. I agree I wish we were a group of smaller people instead of a small group. I need to get started on my Christmas projects but I haven't yet. I have a baby quilt I am making for a customer that only needs the borders quilted and binding. The quilt I made for my GS needs binding and I need to make a baby quilt for my niece. I was thinking of doing something with HST's. My DS wants a tetris quilt. They actually go pretty fast I made one several years ago. I was going to make my DIL a professional tote but if I don;t get to it I have other ideas. I also planned to make my DD and SIL a quilt, all for Christmas. There is a good chance my DD is going to get a bag of fabric. Life just keeps getting in the way of my quilting.
    DD and the grandkids are on their way so probably no quilting again tonight. What I really need is a nap.

    Smaller waistlines (I'm not going to give up!) - not smaller group. The more friends the better. You all give me so much inspiration and hope.

    I'm on my way to the gym now. I give credit to my DH, he is usually better about making himself exercise but we both need to improve eating habits. And I know if I don't keep moving my joints are SO going to freeze up on me.

    Prayers to the many on this thread that need them.

    Somehow I missed signing up this month and guess what ? I'm gaining weight. My candy tooth is working overtime. I need to get all the candy out the house.

    I am waiting for a roofer so I can sign the contract. I finally found one that 1) came when he said he would, 2) gave me an estimate in a timely fashion and 3) had a reasonable price. I am going to have a pretty red metal roof. Woohoo!

    Has anyone made stuffed green peppers with chicken instead of beef? I'll let you know how they turn out.

    Working on? That same quilt I have been expanding for a friend. I actually am working on it today. If I don't get off it the machine, then I can't do anything fun so I AM doing it.

    My daughter may get a bag of fabric, too. With a family of 40 to have gifts for, I can't get too involved in a quilt at Christmas.

    Have a great day, y'all.

    Well at the request of my PCP, I saw a podiatrist today for my feet, only because I am diabetic. Finally got a great report on something. He told me I don't have the feet of a diabetic they are in great shape. I told him I get regular pedicures and he asked if they cut my nails also. I said yes, and they have even gotten out a few hang nails as they were just starting.

    It is nice to get a good report on some things in my health no matter how small.

    Yes I want to see a smaller waist instead of a smaller group.

    I am working on some commitments that I need to have finished prior to mom's surgery on Nov 1st. I have a table runner to complete the binding on, then can mail it off. Need to finish a doll quilt in fall them that is late, will get that done and ready to go, and last but not least the boom swap, have about 14 blocks to complete to send off.

    I also want to make a quilt for my DS & DIL, will probably not happen in time for christmas, maybe their 4th anniversay in June. May make a small one for their little 4 legged baby Jayden, she is part chihuahua part poodle.

    Irish----if you want to send in a FQ you can. We all need the support

    Why, thank you, Cindy. I may do that as I seem to do better with all of you than without. What color??? I know it's sender's choice, but I have such a have deciding with guidelines I don't know if I can without guidelines. Anyone have a preference ?? May be I'll just close my eyes and stick my hand in the FQ drawer.

    Florals I have. Blue - not so much. It may take some digging, but you've given me an incentive.

    Too busy today. We collect gently used jewelry and clean and repackage it for our church bazaar to benefit missions. It's absolutely amazing the quantity and some quality that shows up every year. Tomorrow is sandwiching the big quilt for the same reason.

    Out to dinner with oldest daughter for her birthday. She's such good company. Her youngest DD and 2 DGDs joined us then later my youngest DD and her DS.

    Hope you all are having good days.

    I've had a stomach bug for 2 days now. Not doing anything but staying close to the bathroom. Can't eat much, mainly broth and water. Monday was my birthday and I spent it in bed. Our son wanted to take us out to eat. I told him I'd have to take a rain check. I hope this mess is over with by tomorrow. I haven't even looked at my fabric, but will try to get my FQ's to you later.

    Please be praying for my twin sister. She tried to commit suicide last night. She took a large amount of pills and washed them down with alcohol. She is in a hospital in Minneapolis.

    Thanks, Cindy. I'm not babysitting today so I guess I will be making a trip to see her in the hospital.

    Pam, hope sis is okay - or getting better. Suicide attempts are a cry for help and I hope she is able to find it. Hubby has been there, so I really feel with you.
    Haven't been on the board so much - just not logging in, no real reason. I am my normal busy - did a quilt show this past Saturday. Our little town has a yearly street fair and part of it is the quilt show. I'm not a judge or anything, and the ribbons are awarded through viewer's choice. One of my quilts took the first place - kinda nice to know the public likes your work. I do a bed turning for them every year with some of my mother's quilts and some of mine. One year, I got 2 or 3 from friends and included them, but this year it was just mine.
    Went grocery shopping and made a point of picking up more fruit for me to eat. My weight is still coming down, so anything I can do to continue is helpful. That'll be our Teriffic Tuesday (on Wednesday) is to add fruit to your diet.
    Here's picture of my quilt that won --

    Pam, I will pray for you and your sister. Sisters are so special and a twin even more so. Tell her that's not a good way to win your weight loss competition.

    Kathleen, your quilt is beautiful. I can see why it was a winner. It's apple time. My GD picked me five big bags. I returned three to her, but will be working on the rest. The stores have good local apples at a great price, too, so I can have a variety.

    CindyA, sorry you are ill. That's not a good way to lose weight, either.

    I made potato soup for a friend today and saved one bowl full for me. It is so good - new redskins so I just left the skins on.

    Pam I have prayed for your dear sister.

    I went today back to Cardiologist, and the good news was my heart tests are all ok. I guess it is my lungs, but I am taking my meds for that.

    Congratulations Vanogay.
