    Judith, how exciting! A new grandbaby! I sure hope you're making a quilt for the little one!
    Ronda, my darling, not ignoring you! Spent the day sewing and canning tomato sauce. Will PM you and everyone else back in a few moments.
    Aunt Janey, I guess I will make an appointment. Maybe.

    I kind of agree Krystyna, Given you family history....There are so many new things now that they never had before. It is usually better to catch things as early as possible. And besides, you will feel relieved if it is just dust and eye strain. Just look at it like its a check up. I really hope you'll reconsider. Hugs.

    I agree Krystyna, don't mess with your eyes. my son has all kinds of vision problems now because he did not go to the Doctor when he first started having problems. So go already... For our peace of mind lady! hugs sent your way!

    Lynnie25 asked me to post pics of me and Dragonfly Nana meeting today so here are a couple. The 1st pic is of my stained glass quilt I just picked up from the quilters at Bella Fabrics, the 2nd is of Dragonfly Nana (Paula) folding my quilt back up, and the last one is me and Paula. I hate taking pics because I look crappy in them! We had a blast tho. We met up at Barnes and Noble and had coffee and chatted awhile, then we went shopping at JoAnn's and Hancock's, then we ate lunch at Olive Garden and finally, we went to Bella Fabrics to pick up my Stained Glass quilt. And I might add it rained CATS & DOGS the whole time except when we parted to go home!

    Teresa, THANK YOU for the pics, I love putting faces to names and you both taking a lovely photo. I just love your stained glass quilt, what a beauty.

    I am so glad you had a lovely day, even in the rain. To make you feel better, it rained all day here too It is so nice to meet up and spend the day with other quilters from QB, that is why I so enjoyed meeting ursgodschild2 in April in Melbourne. Now who is coming to Australia next to meet me?????

    Teresa,
    Your quilt is beautiful. Love the colors. They are so bright and cheerful that you can almost see the sun shining through.
    And it's so nice that you could meet with Paula. Looks like the two of you had a great time.
    Sew many Quilts.......so little time!

    Ladies - let me tell you - the picture does not do Teresa's quilt justice- the colors are so vibrant and the piecing is exemplary! What also doesn't show is the fabulous FMQ done in the teal blue and since the back is muslin it shows beautifully there too.

    We had a terrific time today - no matter the darn rain - and yes it looks like my hazel eyes were closed both times! Oops LOL

    Rain is just another form of beauty all in all. And love that quilt. Stunning colors and what lucky ladies to share shopping for FABRIC together.. swoon a more perfect day hard to find.

    I think Marytoddliz has lost her marbles. so many things to HARVEST.. last I checked you were harvesting goobers. Now your thinking harvests.. rofl

    now I was going pastel fall right? just like in real life. oh wait, that is disney. OH goody I can use real colors and UNLIKE last month even patterned fabrics.. yipppeeeee. oh oh I have some gold beads too that would make a nice eye catcher sheen when hung on the wall.. um just like the fall leaves outside. Oh crud. NO LEAVES outside. I live in the woods. Its all brown pine needles if its anything. Not too inspiring. WAIT poison oak! that has lovely colors who wants a poison oak DQ? tada what a great idea. think I spot some right now should go pick some so I can be inspired up close. Then it would be a gift that just keeps on giving.. darned poured some bleach on it yesterday. bet its brown now. bummer what a good idea that was too.
    Linda
    Here today... why what a lucky bunch we are.

    Keep the quilts on the bed, it'll probably be cold when I get there!

    Wow, step away from the computer for a little while and you girls sure were busy!
    Paula and Teresa, so nice to see your smiling faces! Love the stained glass quilt.
    50 quilts on one bed? Sounds comfy!

    Teresa, your quilt is absolutely gorgeous. I love it. The colors are wonderful and the whole thing just pops. By the way are those sweet little pink slippers on the shelf in the background Krystynas?

    Teresa -- your quilt is awesome!!!! The colors are fantastic!! I never would have thought to use the blue/green for the borders (I probably would have just used dull old black). Your color choices made the quilt so vibrant and striking. OK, I'm jealous.

    Unfortunately we've been thru this drill before. Got water, got gas, got generator, got batteries ... and anything can happen between now and next weekend. Last I heard it was losing strength.

    Take another look, Nancy. Not good at Drudge Report and SoCal, buckle up. Looks like an earthquake swarm.

    Only 5 percent probability coming this far over -- now New Orleans may get a bit damp again. Weather people and commentators tend to get a little too fired up over these things. The first year we were here they predicted we would be hit with a Category 4 head on. This dumb Yankee taped windows (still don't know why, but everyone else was doing it), doors, huddled furniture away from all windows and skylites, took pictures off the walls ... even pulled up my mailbox from out front (still hearing about that one), and then -- nada, nothing, zip. After awhile you learn to be "prepared" at the start of hurricane season and just be reasonable and pay attention. Now if they say "Evacuate", that's another story. Been there and done that, too.
