    Oh my goodness...prayers for everyone. It seems to be everywhere we turn right now. My mother is in hospice and she is starting each day being non-responsive. She will not speak until I get there and then she rallies for the day..she takes a lot of short naps all day long but she is determined to leave this world asap. We have talked about it a lot and while she is 95 it is going to be very sad without her around to police my quilts. She actually measured my stitches when I showed her my frist one about 15 years ago. She isn't in any pain but today she has refused to get out of bed. She says she is there to stay! I know I am lucky to have lived 71 years and still have a mother but it is so sad to think she is leaving.

    That makes 3 of us...I sent her a package that was supposed to arrive on Tuesday and I haven't heard...she is usually fast to send a PM or a note on this board. Prayers are with you Robin if you are reading this. I hope the package arrived.

    Bertie, your quilt is fantastic...I am so behind but I finally caught up on all of the messages. Elizabrat I hope you are feeling better again. Moving is bad enough when you are feeling 100%! Good news for Anna...I am really getting a lot done on your quilt. I cannot believe how many pieces there are in that simple looking little piece of Americana! I am lucky because Anna will not be back home until the 20th so I do have time to get this one done! It will definitely be one of a kind from this house!

    Buzzin Bumble...do love your rug. A friend of mine has one and I begged her to let me have it...I tried to trade for it but she was having none of that! Love that you hung yours. Lisa's was a runner and was in her hallway. Absolutely delightful.

    Krystyna, I have a front loader washing machine and I washed some wool in it...it worked for me!

    Hugs to all..so glad we have each other...nothing takes the place of "girl friends"...that was advice I got from my grandmother about 50+ years ago. She said keep your girlfriends close because they will be there when you need them.

    I just love that star quilt. Good job Jaba. TOOMANYUFOS, you are a lucky girl. Was it hard to make Jaba and can you share that pattern?

    How the heck did I miss so many posts? This board is always an amazing thing. You never know what will happen next.

    What a fabulous star quilt! You never know what wonderful things you ladies are going to come up with next.

    Kitsy, I do like those colors. Can't wait to see what you create! I need to dig around to see if I have more red ... I have a second idea bubbling around in my weird little mind.

    Sharon, I'm so sorry about your mom. What a heartache.

    Yes, thinking about and praying for Robin.

    Thanks for the washing machine info. I think I'll try it. Need to get some bags to put the pieces in so I don't make a complete mess.

    I thought I'd post a photo of the Hypnosis table runner I made for the Brat's swap ... scary, isn't it? But the theme IS Summer Fun ...

    Thank you all for the nice compliments, it was a pleasure to make it. I love making them for a table topper but Miss K I did put a hanging sleeve on it also. And....it's not a big secret, it's a pattern using the 22.5 squedge ruler. The only trick is you have to have the ruler. I've tried to see if it would "fit" with the degrees on any other ruler but haven't found one yet. Think I'd get in a bunch of trouble if I started cutting out acrylic and making them. So glad you liked it toomanyufo's

    Love the doll quilt Jaba...love your fabrics Kitsy and Krystyna I would know that table runner was yours! That is simply delightful! Would certainly get your eyes open in the morning if it was on the breakfast table!!! Thoughts and prayers are with Robin tonight...so hope we hear from her soon. Robin, if you are reading this I hope you have sweet dreams tonight...so many thoughts are with you.

    Sharon (luvstoquilt) I am so sorry for what you are going through. Hospice is very hard. My FIL went that route and it was a mixed blessing. I am saying a prayer for you and for your Mom. It doesn't matter how old either of you are - this is one of the hardest things.

    Linda (elisabrat) you're back! How are you doing with your move? You are so funny and your post really cracked me up... hunga dunga

    Bertie I love your method of quilting and being able to ignore the other work. You do sound like you have a ball!

    Kitsie that is great fabric and I can't wait tos ee what you do with it!

    Jaba and Krystyna I LOVE your quilts! Jaba I never saw one done like that before and it is beautiful! Krystyna the close up shot shows that it is even more awesome than I thought!

    This morning I washed and starched the fabrics and actually began cutting them out - this is going to be a fun quilt! I came down to the computer for a lunch break but better get back upstairs and busy.

    I am sending you all a virtual pup with a busily wagging tail who wants to play. It's our dog Pip and she always cheers me up. Throw it for me Mom!

    Oh my Krystna, where's my sun glasses? I LOVE brights, but they totally intimidate me! Every so often I go out and buy some wild fabric and then I just sit and stare at it, maybe someday, I'll figure out....

    Told you!

    TOLD YOU GUYS see I knew Jaba would give her secret up after that amazing plea from me (roll your eyes go ahead) she is a push over for smaltz like that (running she is very very good at kicking my tail)..

    krystyna did you invent your pattern or did you find that? its so incredibly creative and I love that it is so different from all the ones before. High five!

    i havent moved yet going nuts, lots done it seems never ending right? finish all this oh dear look at that.. sigh and I am still trying to get a center medallion thing done in all this. If you could see my house now you would understand. both bedrooms are completely boxed, moved into my livingroom. bathrooms also. laundry room stuff also, most of kitchen also.. nightmare for me ms organized. sure got rid of a lot though. will probably get rid of more before we move too. lots to do lots to do but I sneak in here for a break from reality. love you guys!

    Jean D - sorry to have hurt your eyes. Picture it outside, on a deck at poolside. Better?

    Brat, no pattern. I can't (won't?) use patterns. Undisciplined. With me, you get what you get and usually I never know what's going to come out of the needle at the end of it all.
