    TGIF 10/15


    Good Morning Lovely Ladies

    Can you believe it is the middle of October already? How did that happen?

    It's Friday and that equals busy at the salon. All my favorite blue hairs will be there AND the big bonus for me? My least favorite co worker won't be there. She only works with us every other Friday. Thank goodness this is her un-friday. Last week was enough to last an entire month, perhaps a year.
    Okay, now I have to wash my mouth out or scrub my brain for being so ugly first thing in the morning. LOL.

    Cathy, I am saying a prayer right now for your grandmother Pauline. My Dad is 85 as well. Those skin infections can be a tricky nuisance. I know you wish you could be with her!

    Lola and Jan - I start out with the best intentions of organzing. Problem is I get half way - well, maybe not quite halfway - and get interrupted by the phone, the hubs, my folks, the kids, or the worst culprit (like Jan) "ooohhh! I forgot this one. I wonder if it would do this way in a block." End of story.

    I have to share this stupid dream. I dreamt that I was seeing people in quilts. But I was seeing them as photographs and cutting the pics up like a crazy quilt and then arranging them for a quilt. How wierd is that? I blame that quilt cutter video I watched before I went to bed.

    Have a great day everyone!! Be sure and smile lots and lots.
    Sewing mends the soul.

    Good Morning all, Blondie your Dad's quilt is wonderful. I'm sure he loves it. His baby daughter made it for him. God bless you for taking the time to show him how much you love him. He will feel loved whenever he is cuddled up under the quilt and will feel safe and loved. I think quilts turn everyone into Linus. They are the supreme blankies, and one never out grows your need for love and security. You are a wonderful daughter.
    I'm glad you understand the cleaning problem we all must have when it comes to our "creative spaces".
    Your dream is just you thinking about all those people you love, and who you want to make a quilt for. I love weird dreams. It makes you wonder what your brain is working on.
    Cathy, I'll pray for Pauline too.
    I'll be on and off all day, so see you all around. Have a wonderful day everyone,
    Laura, talk to me, what did the doctor say? I'm going wondering. I love you and want you to be as healthy as possible. I hope you slept last night. I didn't so maybe my sleep went your way so you could? Just a silly thought. Love you.
    And love and hugs for everyone, have a nice day. It's grey and rainy here, so if it's sunny and warm where you are send some this way. Please? Love, Jan
    Home, where each lives for the others and all live for God! ><(((((o>

      Good Morning to all, Blondie your graphics are totally cool these remind me what my girls were doing just before bedtime last night. Dancing the night away. If only I could have a pinch of their energy . It's true when you do something and get involved just before bed you think it in your deams. It's bad to have that one worker that no one likes to work with and you get stuck with them to wreck you day.
      Janluna your right about everyone needing to feel the love with a quilt. I've personally never had one but they seem so special.

        Good morning. I have today off! HAPPY DANCE!!!! I finsihed my exchange blocks last night Going to a quilt shop today. Yipee! All this talk of organizing your sewing rooms/areas has got me motivated to work on my sewing room closet. Going to get some hanging shelves because somewhere in that vast pile of material etc. I have lost bedsheets and who knows what else is in there....lol
        Blondie your papa is very lucky guy as Jan said he will feel loved whenever he is cuddled up under the quilt.
        Cathy I will pray for Pauline as well and for Laura hoping her news is good. Speaking of Prayers can some go out for a collegue of mine. Nathan is a super guy and today he fiinds out if he has bone cancer in his leg or not.

            Happy Friday All
            Yes I did have a doctors appointment. I practically live at them. I had a biopsy on my leg yesterday ..I have these spots ...Jan seen them hard to discribe but they look like a cigarette burn...well I get them alot and they leave nice dark brown scars ...Im italian so everything shows. Dad went with me and went pale when the place we had to go was Wake Forest Cancer and Oncology. I saw a specialist on skin disorders there. He took a cone biopsy and I have to say It looked alot like those spiral potatoe slicers mom and I used to make curly fries ..lol leave it to me to think of something like that. I had the sweetest little chinese PA who was trying to make me feel better but she kept saying oOo and had the facial expressions to match ...i had to laugh and tell her she wasnt making it better but she was ...entertaining.
            He did mention Lupus again but Im going to pretend I didnt hear him ...haha out of site and all.
            Im going to be just fine...Im still doing applesauce and applebutter now...and applesauce cake in a jar.
            Last night Rodney and I peeled apples and watched Tv while doing it....I never watch tv but I have to say how funny some shows were ...and it was nice just chilling out. He's only working a few hours today ..I think I have him worried but Im fine and he will see that.
            Jan you stop worring about me ...I'm just a unique individual and getting uniquer if that is word ...I love you bunches and we are saving all our prayers for Emily.
            Im saying prayers for Pauline and Nathan and Opie and everyone else who really needs them.
            I am also inspired to finish cleaning the sewing room ....Not sure who said it but its true you start then stop when you find a piece of fabric that calls your name...and says Sew me please lol
            Blondie enjoy your day without your co worker..I did see at the store where they have all kinds of decorator duct tape lol....tell her its a new Holloween idea and tape her up LOL ...ok im bad today
            Way to go Shauna on getting your blocks done...
            Sewsoft If you have never had a quilt I think you are in the right place. Ive thought of joining the next swap and your post inspired me. I think we should all do one and then each of us would have a friendship quilt made by us!! How fun would that be...a gift of friendship to each other Think about it.
            Ok im off to finish canning ...its crisp and cool here and I love it !!
            Blessed day all...
            hugs and love

              Good Morning all!
              I am playing with my swap blocks this morning, and finishing up laundry that I didn't get to yesterday. 2 more blocks are done---the rest are all 'in progress'! I have to work this evening, so will be hitting the shower here in just a bit. I have a batch of pumpkin butter to get started as well--it's for a gal at work that asked me to make it for her.
              I am off tomorrow, so I think I will start cleaning up this sewing room a bit, and then stitch my little heart out. I have several projects that I want to finish up and they are buried in this mess! LOL
              Sewing machine and the kitchen are calling my name.......Hope everybody's day is great!

                Re: TGIF 10/15

                So much going on today! Laura, I hope your test come out well, and I hope you are sleeping well. Lots of prayers to everyone today, it looks like we need them!
                My week was pretty uneventful until yesterday when my 11 year old got suspended from school for losing his temper and shoving a chair across the room. It is in school suspension, thankfully, as I don't agree with out of school suspension. The teachers are really trying to help the kids learn to control their emotions and talk to an adult instead of losing their tempers. My son is pretty disappointed with himself, but I think he has learned a valuable lesson. I also found out there are at 5 boys in the 6th grade on suspension this week. Must be something in the water!

                Need to get caught up on a couple of school assignments today and some house chores so I can finish up my swap blocks tomorrow. I am learning so much from these blocks, and I am mostly very happy with how they are coming along. I can't wait to see the rest of them!

                Hugs and prayers to all, and I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

                  Re: TGIF 10/15

                  Thanks for the prayers for my grandmother. I was able to talk to her a few minutes ago, and she is doing better. The antibiotics seem to be doing their job on her skin infection. They gave her a CAT scan when she first came in because she was complaining of being dizzy and they were afraid she was showing signs of pre-stroke behavior. That checked out fine, and she is not having a stroke. They determined that she was dehydrated and that was part of the dizzy. They are running an ultrasound on her legs this afternoon to make sure she doesn't have any blood clots, and if that checks out fine, they will send her home tomorrow. I still worry about her. My cousin and his wife are looking after her, but hey have two young children, so I know that is hard on them.
                  One shocking thing that has come from this, I received an e-mail from my younger half-sister. I haven't spoken to her in about 5 years. She got angry that my family chipped in & bought Grandma a refurbished laptop to help her keep track of the family via e-mail & digital photos. She thought I was nuts and had no problem telling me why it was a bad idea. As it turns out, Gram loves the thing and has a great time keeping up with the family that way. (Which I think pissed her off even more.) While we aren't swapping recipes or anything, at least she's worked out her mad enough to send me the update on Gram's condition.

                  I like the idea of a friendship swap. Can we wait until after the holidays though? I say we let the idea percolate and we can all think about what we would like to do (size/styles) and then we can make it our first project for 2011. I have had fun with the Around the World swaps, but I think I need a break! Speaking of which... I have a couple of blocks to knockout today. I get to use my new space! WhooHoo! I am off to finish that post on my blog. It's gonna take a bit to download all of those photos! I'll let you know when it's up.

                  Thanks for being here. I think we all need these kinds of friends or we would go

                    Hi all,
                    Cathy - glad you grandmother is better. I know exactly what it is like with the family drama, my mom's family was like that all the time.
                    Laura - Glad you are still cookin along. I really love your posts and look forward to reading everyone's news!
                    Keepstitch - When my son was that age he told me he had been given 3 days of at home suspension and stayed home for for the first day. I kept thinking it was rediculous (sp?) and so I called the school on the second day only to find our there was no such thing! Little stinker!
                    Sally - hope your co-worker gets a good report. I will say a little prayer for him.
                    Jan - I am sending you some sunshine and some of our pretty fall day. Just cool enough to enjoy!
                    Blondie - thanks for the fun welcome to Friday. sorry about the co-worker, some people just get on your last nerve everytime you see them don't they?
                    Have today off and accomplished alot so far. Dishes, laundry, overall cleaning, been to Whole Foods and went to Hobby Lobby and ended up at Joannes to get some fabric for the borders and back of the quilt I am working on. I also got some yellow and black fleece for my Halloween costume. I am going to be a Bee and my BF is going to be a Bee Keeper! I also got a new blade for my rotary cutter. It's been skipping a beat lately and driving me crazy! Last but not least I got safety pins and a Pigma Pen to sign my swap blocks. I am determined to get them out next week.
                    Tomorrow I am headed back to Joanne's at 9 am to get the warm and natural batting by the yard. It's on sale for $5.99 a yard tomorrow. Then I will head to the "mercado" to get some cheap veggies for the week!
                    Now I am gonna settle down and sew after I get off here! I check in to see you all later!

                      OK! I got the blog post done & you all can check out my revamped space and see the horror that it was before.

                      Now I am going to go mess it all up with fabric and do some laundry! I have to figure out what we are having for supper too. UGH! I hate making that decision. I wish I could make a menu for the week and then not think about it, but I can't seem to do that either.

                      Maybe inspiration will strike while I am sewing. Ahahahahahaha!

                        Re: TGIF 10/15

                        Hi Ladies -
                        Link for our Cathy (tggpine) blog: http://toggpine.wordpress.com/

                        It is well worth the viewing! Wow, I am really impressed. What an undertaking. And Cathy, glad to read your grandmother is doing better. And once again, while it is no real comfort, there is a general malaise among families called DYSfunction. I put the emphasis on Dys because of the generation that says dissing for disrespect. Just remember the original family was pretty dismal - Hubs blamed wife for enticing him to eat forbidden fruit, one son killed the other - yikes. I will say an extra prayer for you.

                        Laura, yuck on the cone biopsy. Glad to read you are taking good care of yourself.

                        Sally - I am adding Nathan to my prayers right now. Please let us know his results?

                        Paticakes -= love your Halloween costume idea

                        I like the idea of a swap after the holidays as well. All kinds of ideas. My only caveat is that we keep it simple and no stressing. LOL. I am here to relax and have a good time. I have enough complications and stress around me each day.

                          Adding Nathan to my prayers - and
                          also Laura - God knows what's inside you and we just have to keep praying that whatever it is that he takes care of it and you. I love your attitude and it doesn't sound like whatever it is is going to bring you down - you just keep coming on here for HUGS and LOVES - we are good at passing that out!

                          Love the new sewing room and those IKEA bins. We don't have an IDEA around here, sure wish we did. They would be perfect for my stash - now if I could just find one room to put it all in - that would be a great start.

                          Chilly here today - sent some sun on up to you Jan. So, now it's cloudy here. It's a big night here in town - homecoming and seems most everyone comes out from behind their closed doors for it. I'll be in though and pulling out some more stitching. Nice and warm and cozy.

                          Hope you all have a great weekend.
                          Hugs,

                            Oh my, Cathy, you've done such a great job, your room looks really delicious now. I'm sure you will find being creative so much more enjoyable now that things are all organised. Sadly my sewing room needs a new look as well and you are braver than me, I'm not sure I could take the before photos.

                              Great room Cathy!! I love what you did so much I am planning a trip to Ikea soon. There is one not too far from me!
                              Got my borders done and the backing ready on my "Cherish Nature" quilt that I am working on. Tomorrow I will get the batting and get it spray basted. Can't wait to start quilting on it.

                              Tonight if the BF wants to just sit and watch the tube I will start cutting the squares for the DP9 "Surfer Girl" quilts I am making for my DD and DGD! That one should be interesting.

                              Well I am off to post pics of my last quilt in the "Show and Tell" area!

                              Hope you all have a good evening and a wonderful weekend!
