So found some nice blue and yellow blocks I had made and thought maybe it would be a nice spring doll quilt. But now I am thinking something else after seeing such beautiful quilts here today. Well, I still have a few weeks so I better get started tonight.

    oh those are so pretty! love the daffodils and crocus that come out at this time of year. truly spring has sprung. its 68 today darn right toasty! little breeze, my dh is working in a tank top. He is part American Indian so he browns so fast he is always asked if he is Mexican. Funny in the winter that boy is WHITE glow in the dark white. two weeks working he looks like he hits tanning booths. me? I glow white all year round. I cant go in the sun due to meds so I am truly goofy in my tanks. Unlke him I am not ready to go there yet lol.

    I finished my wall hanging today! that is the good news. Bad news I forgot the hanger part and since I added beads any iddea how to add one now? I cant machine it or I might break the beads. argh. guess its a by hand. binding is not closed on the back yet thats a dialysis thing. wonder if I make a hanger could I stitch it under the binding? and gently tack the bottom half down? its not going to be that heavy so it will be able to hang by a dowl rod. help anyone???

    Elisabrat, this is how I do my hangers most of the time even for bigger quilts and they always work fine. Go for it.

    How 'bout add thos little circle thingies on the back instead of a hanger sleeve. Two - one in each corner will support it on two small nails in the wall...just a thought. And Linda, hugs and prayers for better health and a kidney.

    Elisa..you can be lazy like me! I make the sleeve and then send it separate in case they don't hang their quilts. If they want to use the sleeve they have to sew it on themselves. It was done this way for me once and I thought it was a good idea...maybe, maybe not?

    I finnished my April DQ quilt for Linnie25 and it turned out just like I wanted it. You will all need to wait to see it till Linnie25 has it in far away Tasmaniat(Australia). this is my first foreign swap partner and Linnie25 is the best. I am really enjoying getting to know her and learn more about that part of the world.

    Some of you might know my second DD and her DH are missionaries in Africa. Their baby boy was finaly born, Sunday, after a very hard delivery but both mama and baby boy are doing well. She will need some extra time to heal.

    If I do not post I am out of the area. My brother in law suffered a heart attack Sat. and has been on the brink of life multiple times and is on full life support. the outlook is not good. I am trying to find a way to go to my sister. He is 52 yrs old and was in perfect health, so this has been a shock. They have two sons the oldest is 20, married with a baby girl, and an 11 yr old boy. We appreciate prayers for him and the family.

    I am trying to look at my swap commitments and see how many I can get out of the door before I am gone for an unknown time. I think I can get Linnie25's quilt out before I leave but there might be other swaps I can not get completed. So if anyone is wondering where I am or why I am not responding, please feel free to share with them this info. I will probably try and post this in some of those swap threads also or let my partners too.

    Oh, my, that doll quilt should be the very least of your worries. My mother was on dialysis for 4 or 5 years and I know those days, rush off to the hospital, such a looong trip. So not fun, not from my perspective, I can only imagine from yours. I do pray that you find a kidney soon. I had one very scary experience with moms clogged shunt, thought I was in a movie. Yes, wasn't that ever so clever of me to splice out that little sliver of a view. Could you tell what it was? I actually have cut up my project in an attempt to get it put together. Does that make sense? In a nutshell, the things I do seldome make sense. I had a vision, then it turned, then it didn't fit, so I just keep plugging along. If I don't figure it out I'll just start over. So please don't be in a hurry to finish, remember we agreed to mail together!!

    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.

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.
    Sharon, you sound like me! In fact, we should meet for lunch some day. I live 15 miles north of DeKalb. You're not that far from me!

    Now, I have to confess. Ever since I joined the April 2013 Mini Doll Swap Group, I have been searching around my computer trying to find a way to post to the group. I have bugged poor Krystyna several times on how to do things. Now one thing she told me was to 'just click on the link in one of the daily email posts I get and it would bring me right here.' Nope, nada, I clicked til it sounded like I had castanets going, nothing happened. In order for me to finally get here, I highlighted the URL, copied it to my browser URL space and voila! I can hardly believe it! Hope for an ole dog yet!

Size:  711.0 KBI went to The Quilting Board and I clicked on My Profile. Where it shows one group I'm in - April Doll Quilts. I clicked on that and all that showed up was a 2-3 page list of members. No posts. No way to post.

    I sent my April Doll quilt to Debbyg and I posted a picture. The picture wound up in the GROUP PHOTOS (There's 179 doll quilts shown and SSue is the first one). Oh, lookee there! The picture just came in to this post. I may learn something yet, lol! In the meantime, I'm enjoying all of you and the quilts I can see. Hugs and prayers for those of you in need--a hug to the rest of you.

    I want to thank everyone for their kind words and prayers. I am so hoping for a kidney. I just want to feel.. close to normal again even if its only for a little while in the mean time I will be a sewing addict

    Annaquilts your family is in my prayers. Its so hard when things come out of no where like that.. truthfully there is never a good time or a good year for it.. its horrible no matter what. The fear, the stress, the worry.. its all a very real emotion. I will hope that you can gift each other comfort and an ear to listen .. get it out. we will be waiting for your updates and for you to come home with peace in your heart. hugs and love.. Linda (le brat)

    Sharon, Yorkville IL: How about Friday, May 3rd? I'll have to check the map and see what's in the middle to eat at. What quilting group are you in -- I belong to the DeKalb County Quilting Association in DeKalb but I rarely attend meetings since they're at night and I have trouble seeing how to drive at nighttime.

    BertieD, so glad you found your way here, even if it was by the backroads sort of way.
    AnnaQuilts, prayers for your family.
    Onalee, I have to PM you for your address since your little quilt has been sitting here waiting to be mailed.
    Soooooo overwhelmed these days. We are meeting with yet another engineer on Tuesday.
    Thursday is the rehearsal dinner at the restaurant where my son, Blaze, is working. I am very nervous for him -- and for the dinner -- as I think they are going broke. His pay is overdue and the owner is making up a story about getting robbed of $20,000 in cash which he claims to have kept hidden in his office. I just hope the doors aren't locked for the dinner!
    The wedding is just 10 days away! Yikes!!!

    Feel the fear and do it anyway!

    Oh, my, Krystyna!! It sure would be awful! I hope all goes great for the wedding. I will PM my address to you. Even though I have told you over and over not to worry about it. I can't wait to see it and to have something made by a board member that I have come to like and respect. There are lots of people here on the board that I feel like "kindred spirits". I hope someday to meet a few of you! I see quite a few names from Michigan lately, I'm thinking....PARTY!!!!

I got a thumbs up in dialysis for my design. I always bring things in to work on so lots of kibitzing on who likes what better and if its pretty/cute/striking/whatever words they come up with. I am happy with it and now that I know its not boon dog ugly I can send it on with relief in my heart

Another 15 and I am back to dry weight. miss a few days and man that water sticks like glue to me. amazing how much it weights. fat skinny fat skinny argh! I wear baggy sweats. My friends say why dont you ditch those for something that FITS better. cause never know if I am out of commission for a few days and 30 lbs come to momma.. 5 days later its gone again. up down its tough. enough said. this bird is going to take a nap or be a cranky pants. not good at being cranky always suprises the heck out of people. YOU? CRANKY? oh dear.. are you ok?? obviously not goofball. I am CRANKY lol. nap time for cranky pants here.

    Anna, please don't rush to send my DQ, it must wait as you need to be with your family. I have PMed you but I haven't finished your DQ yet we can both send them later. Prayers and thoughts for you and your family all the way from Aus.
