    Re: Thursday Sept 30

    Hi everyone! I am not on the computer much and just found this thread. Hope you don't mind if I jump in?
    Sounds like a good way to know everyone better.
    Laura - Sorry about your restless nights. I understand how draining it can be! Hope you can get some rest tonight.
    Blondie - Rain in your basement must be so stressful!! I would be sick about it. Your poor cat! Is it drying up at all????
    Hillbilly - I know what you mean about the DD Bliss temptation - I wanted it sooo bad but just don't have the $$ this week. Did you get it??
    Suzi - How you coming along on that wedding quilt??
    Sally - Pillowcases are such a great idea! I made a couple last year out of quilter's flannel and they turned out so nice. I think I will make some for gifts too. The fruit sounds good but I am eating low carb these days, so no fruit for me. :-(
    Jan- 64 squares! I see why you break it up. That cracks me up to think of your bird telling the dogs what to do..LOL!
    Saundra - Is your place okay???
    Shelia - all I can say is YEAH for PAYDAY! Mine is tomorrow but my rent will eat it all up and then some!
    Lola - wish I could figure out how to get those tuts play ongoing like that. You sound like you are in about the same point as I with the star blocks.
    Well, I just finished 4 blocks for the swap and now have 10 more to go. I have to get them done this weekend because I just started my little quilt business (Sweet Cherry Quilting) and a lady ordered 4 quilts from me!! Yikes! At first she said 7 and I was freaking inside as to how I would get those all done before Christmas so I am glad it is down to 4!
    Well time to get some sleep cuz I was up for 2 hours in the middle of the night myself.
    Night all....<yawn>.....Patti

        Good luck...I kind of shut mine down for a bit...don't let it take your fun!!! What type of quilts did she order??

        I gotta get to bed. There is NO way to say hi to all these new people tonight. How am I ever going to keep up?

        I didn't have $$ for the layer cake either. My husband worked in Hamilton tonight, and I told him that he could swing by and get one... and of course he thought I meant a real slice of layer cake. When is he going to learn??? LOL.

        Ok...night all. I still have to get the tutorial done in the morning as life is busy and I am too tired to do it tonight!!

          We are having nice weather here, which is something for Seattle. We have fog rolling in at night, and sun by late morning/early afternoon. I got the lawn mowed today.
          We don't have any house pets unless you count the 19 year old & 4 year old. We live on about 2.5 acres with 20 chickens, 25 goats of various ages, a livestock guardian dog, and a barn cat who thinks she is a guard dog. My husband is currently contemplating raising a couple of pigs with our extra milk.
          I did have time to sew, but I started doing milking chores for our neighbor on her goat micro-dairy. She makes some yummy cheeses with the milk. So now my days are pretty much my chores, her chores, my other neighbor who is in the hospital needs her horse fed, run the youngest to pre-school, do the afternoon feeding at the dairy, pick up the pre-schooler, do my chores, make dinner, clean up and get the youngest one in the tub, and into bed. I do manage to squeeze in some other things, but not the big block of time in the afternoon that I had become accustomed to. It's actually making me kind of cranky.
          This weekend my husband is heading out of town to go camping with the guys. I am gutting the sewing nook and my sister and I are going to get it painted and install the overhead lighting. I was hoping to have the new counter top installed, but I can't seem to get anybody to cut it to the right size before Sunday. Oh well, if I can get the rest of the stuff done, then the counter can go in Sunday afternoon.
          I'll send before and after pictures once I have the space tidy.
          I'm headed back to the sorting & purging portion of this little adventure.

          Good luck with all of your adventures! I hope that you all dry out!

            I really feel sorry for those of you who have had such drama in flooding etc in you lives.Mother nature sure is doing a thorough cleanup of this planet.Blessing to you all for a speedy recovery of your homes.
            Quilting is good therapy.
