    I've been outside brushing up my minis for the last three days.Just love it so it means I've put my inside on hold for a minute. Rain is in the forcast so should be inside soon. I've started my DQ but I I'm still debating on the trims that could go with it

    Elisabrat, I planned to cheat and do applique using my embroidery machine(s). However, I have been using them to run freestanding lace on organza wedding favors. One seized up and won't go. This morning, machine number two bit the dust. One of many problems I am having today. In fact, today is not my favorite day at all. If I had an ounce of brains I would go back to bed. But I am lacking that ounce, so I will plod along.

    I just put toomanyufo's doll quilt in the mail. I almost didn't go because the weather is being ugly. The wind is blowing so ahrd and the sir is full of dirt. It looks like its overcast, but its sand in the air.
    I promise not to buy any more fabric until I see something I really like. Or it's on sale. Or I think it might match something.

    NanaKathy55 just to let you know that I finished your doll quilt and it will be going out in tomorrows mail. I hope you like it. I took a picture of it. When you let me know that you got it I will post it here for everyone to see it. I really had fun doing this.

    Wow -- these quilts are fantastic!!! Daughter finally has things under control with new baby, so I have a breather until her DH goes back to work next week. That finally gives me time to sew. I want to shout to the world how much I admire and respect my son-in-law after watching him in action with new mom and baby. He hasn't left her side for more than 5 minutes since this whole episode started. So far I think she's only changed one diaper (only a wet one, too). He's done things for her I never would have asked my DH to do at the time, and he's totally unbelievable with the baby. Wow!! Where were these guys when we were looking for mates? Seems this new generation of dads is really hands-on. I'm so glad baby has his dimples and possibly his blue eyes. He deserves it!.

    Definitely need to get going on spring cleaning. I have sort of started but it is still pretty cold here so the bug hasn't bitten me yet. Get rid of fabric? NEVER! I will share if anyone needs it but I have never taken it to Goodwill. I have a very hard time getting rid of things..when I do I get them out of the house in a hurry or I go back and take them out of the boxes. I am really not a hoarder but I do collect way to many things.

    Take all the time you need! I finished mine..I am still scared I won't get it done in time. I worked way too many years and always had a "deadline" to meet. Now in retirement I still can't seem to settle down and just relax a bit. Ahhhh, habits of a lifetime are hard to break. Your squishy is on the way as of this morning!

    WOW!1 I am not the only one. My kids and DH sometimes help me. They will get rid of things for me, if I ask them to. I decided to get rid of some clothes that don't fit any more. Did really good, emptied several dozen hangers. Then I went to the living room to fold the stuff. Pulled a few items back, they MIGHT fit. Then a friend came and she was no help at all. "are you sure you want to get rid of this"? No, but YES! Took a couple more back. My oh My!! Fabric?!?!?!?!?!?!? No way!! I can gift it to someone I know will use it. Sometimes. I am getting better, through this board.

    Quilting on my DQ is coming along nicely, although more would get done if I wasn't hooked on Candy Crush Saga on Facebook

    Any fabric and fabric scraps that I don't use goes to a good friend who uses them to create some amazing art quilts. I have given some fabric over the years to the local aged care home for the residents to make little items for their annual fair. DH announced the other day that I shouldn't buy too much more fabric after he had stepped into his mom's sewing room and was astounded at the sheer volume of fabrics she has accumulated over the years...much of which will come to me. She's nearly 80 so I hope she keeps sewing for many years to come

    Wanda, hope you're feeling OK. You're is on hold for the moment. Both of my machines are in the shop.

    Skaduzy, love that table topper! I'll bet your partner would have been happy to have it!

    Miss Nancy! Congratulations Grandma! Now you will have that long sought after revenge on your daughter as she experiences motherhood first hand. We need a photo of the wee one! C'mon! Share!

    I finished my doll quilt this evening and will get it on its way to AlaskaAlice tomorrow! I have kept fabric, patterns and all things sewing for 40 years and am shocked at what a "collector" I am.....but alas I am now ready to dive in and start sorting and get rid of a lot of it-it took me this long to admit I'm never going to use most of it....now that being said-lets see how I do! Oh, I tend to sort and just make new piles then back into other containers and wait a few more years, ya never know when you might need that!

    applique tomorrow today was a blow out day. went for dialysis they said your clotted going to the hospital asap so I spent a wonderful day in surgery at the hospital with an angioplasty AGAIN (twice this year already) I was so unimpressed. I just got home from the hospital a week ago so I was oh sonot anxious to go back. ARGH pirates. this is no fun. wanted: kidneys asap please. everyone say a prayer one shows up soon. in the mean time I am going to spend the next day off finishing applique and quilting my dq. only project on the menu for tomorrow so I should get really far on it finally. sorry for being so slow.

    skaduzy, what a gorgeous quilt, love the fabrics and if I was your partner, I wouldn't have minded it being just a little over the 'required' size. I think mine may go a little over one way this month too but I didn't want to squish the flowers too much

    Juanita, lovely DQ you got from vanogay, is that a little butterfly that has landed on your DQ?

    Beautifully said! I can only imagine how difficult it must be to wait for one and am amazed at how wonderfully cheerful you are!
