    SORRY: the first two are from Phannie, and I was so sitting here hoping she would share her monster truck fabric with me but she held back and used Cherries instead. (PHEW).. darn. And the last if I didnt post already was from Tlambing I love it very pretty and all very feminine they will all work perfectly together. YEAH.. oh and the kitty well too cute had to share that with you. He almost looks.. sad. lol I guess cats dont like hats much. Tried a bee one once on some kittens. they all glared at me.. funny pics though.

    Every kitten that comes through my house must enter the Panda phase. I have the most adorable panda costume that I got for dirt cheap back when I was a dog groomer at Petsmart, and I vow I will somehow find a way to shove a newborn baby into it, but until then, since i have no small dogs, the cats get the torture. They all wear it, and get their humiliating pictures taken. They don't like it much the first time but get used to it after that. I put it on the baby kitten last week, and if the hood was over her face she backed up everywhere.. once the hood was lifted she looked at me and purred her fool head off and walked around, until the hood flopped back over her face. So yea.. they don't like hats. Which means i also enjoy putting tape on their heads and backs just to watch them zoom around in reverse

    So.. metallic embroidery thread... bane of my existence.. now as bad as I hated it last night.. it broke a needle on me even! geez. How can the thread break a needle but become such a mess of itself while attempting to use it to sew.. whatteevverr.. It's almost done.. then it's out of my house and I'm sorry I think it is like 1/16th of an inch smaller than it should be and I don't think I care anymore. I still have to wash this darned thing too, to get the glue off.. Don't ask... this block REALLY REALLY wants to go to it's new home. I better finish that tonight before I decide to rip everything off of it and start over.. tee hee. Oh crud it's math time again.

    Oh, poor spidey, I'll give him a great home. I'm waiting for a Halloween quilt to come back from my quilters and the design she used is spidey and can't wait to see how it turned out, she's also using Halloween Night pattern on the second one.

    Elisabrat don't know what I'm going to do with you, mercy girl, no clean for you, you deserve a break so sew sew sew all you want, between those naps. You've got to do something though, you have days and nights mixed up me thinks!! Finally finished the wedding quilt this morning, got up at 4:45 and its squared up and now to sew the binding on, oh my, then all that hand sewing. I'll be sitting in that chair with this big old quilt on me and feel like I'm in an even. Guess I could just go nude and do it, hubby liked that at one time, but sorry to say that was 15 years ago. He'd look at me now and think what the hell is the matter with her?!?!?
    No blocks came home to me today, hopefully tomorrow, still have 10 out there somewhere. Better get with the binding, check in later.

    Oh dear Jaba - just send me more F8's and we will send more completed blocks!
    WEnt for my eye exam today and he said I don't need new glasses = the problem is cataracts!! My mom didn't get surgery until mid 70's and I haven't hit 60 - yet! Not ready for someone to start poking my eye EWWEEEE - he said it may be why sometimes colors seem to match and then not match - hope all my colors played well in your blocks!

    So to make me feel better - hubby and I rented a double kayak and went around the lake and had lunch sitting out there with the sun shining at 80 degrees. So nice and calm (and of course had a double set of glasses on cause my eyes are still dialated)

    Traveling Gramma, give it up and get those cataracts removed. It's not a big deal, trust me I know 1st hand and I was in my 50's. No more night glare from those awful headlights and it's nice being in the sun, as long as it doesn't get too hot, plays hell combined with the high blood pressure pills and the medication for MS and thyroid cancer. Geezs I think I should be falling apart, but all is good and most days just happy to be here and walking. But that water glare will get you every time, but that happens anyway. Yup I'd gladly send you more F8's and you can make as many as you want. If it will make you feel better I'll send you a little sympathy card........Name:  sympathy_sunset_bird.gif

    I'm glad that evening sunset made you feel better! Couldn't help it, loved that pic so calm and soothing. I'm jealous, have fun in Phoenix, hope it doesn't get too hot today, take lots of pics and show all of us the really cool ones so we can dream of 1 day maybe being able to achieve that status (yah right uh?) Any way.....have a great time!!

    TravelingGramma ... have not had cataract surgery but have had two other eye surgeries. One was to remove a small growth on my eye-ball ... it was like a small cyst on the surface of eye. One quick swipe with a scalpel and it was gone. The other eye surgery was Lasik and I had both eyes done. The surgery itself was relatively painless and fairly quick - and from what I heard somewhat similar to cataract surgery as in both cases the lens of the eye has to be lifted.

    Lasik surgery is WEIRD though. They fit a ring around the orbit of your eye to keep it open and immobile. I couldn't see or feel the incision, and after it they had to smooth the lens back into place and I did see that happening, it was like a little windshield wiper going across my eye. SOOO WEIRD!! They had given me a Valium pre-op to relax me and told me to keep my eyes closed as much as possible post-op. So I had my eyes closed the whole 45 minute trip home. When I felt the car stop in our drive I opened my eyes and immediately shut them because I felt *something* running out of my eyes and down my cheeks. I put my hands to my cheek to wipe off the "wet stuff" and held my palms out to my husband and asked him "what color are my hands" with a very anxious voice. He said "why - they're normal". Oh thank God ... I just wanted to make sure it wasn't blood or he was turning the car around to drive right back. But it was just water from my eyes running.

    That moment of worry was the only bad thing about my surgery. Very little pain, minor discomfort, and my vision is 20-15 (as opposed to 20-500).

    So no worries ... go get the cataracts taken care of and you'll be good as gold.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    ctmhjenn, I sent out your block to you today. I hope you like it.

    OK gross slicing things off the eye, first thing in the morning.. really you guys? I like the lake story however and oh the museums in Phoenix those are lovely it doesnt matter how hot it is there, air conditioning is wonderous. There is the prettiest outside gardens in PHX that you can go to that is well worth the heat. I love parts of Phoenix but would rather be in Prescott (they call it Preskit lol) anytime sitting outside the courthouse having a glass of wine enjoying art in the park there.. oh yeah.

    Back to reality however, is anyone aware of a book on say Halloween quilts? I am hoping to get a tiny library of holiday quilt books so that I can use them for reference or idea concepts. Oh how cute, the turkeys are all talking and just did a parade by the window here, just four feet from me, they make the cutest noises.. ah the day has started good. I love how they all talk back and forth its easy to see who is calling for whom by their different noises. I win! big dork of the day!! maybe I will find more big feathers outfront. I will have to search. The cats think those feathers are the best gift ever. I try to put them in vases and magically they end up on the floor mangled. Magic cats! magic feathers?
    last one: check out Pearls they have only 120 posts.. I guess they dont have a big mouth like me on there.. can I go bug them I wonder?? sneak attack.. ok off to do my halloween quilt finish it so i can stop dreaming about it. oh oh and I want a post card book too on fabric post cards I think there are two major ones but which one is the best?
    I lied last one: I have the farmers Wife quilt book not the pony quilt book. CD brand new anyone interested in trading it for another quilt book? I didnt realize all the blocks in there are six inch block patterns, something like 125 of them.. let me know.

    If you thought it was gross reading about it, you should have seen it.

    I went back to work after it was done and boss looked at me and said 'what are you doing here, I thought you had eye surgery'. I said "I did!" and I turned my head so he could see and I thought the man was going to faint. Even the tiniest of incisions on the eye make a bloody awful mess.

    Ok ... a better morning story .... it's a BEAUTIFUL sunny day here. Temps are a perfect "pre fall" *crisp* (I love this weather!). I'm going to make a 40 mile run down the river road (a beautiful drive with the woods and river on one side and corn fields (currently being harvested - a month early) on the other), to the town of Kankakee where I will go to a quilt show. I'll try to take a fall piccie or two for y'all.

    Happy to report that hubby (and baby quilt) landed safely at Heathrow about 1:00 AM, picked up his rental car, and safely navigated the M25 to his house in Essex. He is English again for 10 days. Right now he's probably eating Fish and Chips if I know him.

    I am back from PHX - wonderful 24 hours! Except - the quilt exhibit had closed during the week - I was not a happy camper - but enjoyed the rest of the museum and then went over to the Heard museum. It is one with exhibits on the Native Americans - and oh so very sad on what the white men did to them over the years - and still doing! Learned alot - good and bad.
    Went to a great German restaurant with hubby and friend and can still taste those wonderful flavors.

    Elisabrat - next time you are in "preskit" let me know - I love hanging at the courthouse (outside please) and the many different shows they have there with the local artists. I'll join you in the wine and we can visit the local quilt shop a block away!
    Tlambing - have your blocks (yes two!!) finished and will be sending them back tomorrow with my F8!
