    Trish you were so busy! I just love looking at pics of fabric and quilty things! Your fabric is wonderful and the panels are cute. Love your 10 minute blocks...looks like that will go together pretty fast. Thanks for sharing your stash of goodies...now go get some rest!

    Hey everyone!
    Was busting a butt today after work so I don't have to bust it tomorrow on my day off. Hit the laundromat and did 3 loads - got 2 of them hung out here. Got the lunch meats I needed, ran to the post office, hit the food store and bought cookie dough for neighbors choc. chip cookie present (he's 70 he says, but do think he's older than that), hit Goodwill where I got the 6 spools of brand new thread for a total of $3., made dinner, and got DH to download some photos. What did she say - downloaded some photos? Yes, finally. I need some kind of easy camera that takes great photos with an easy download even I can understand. I'm not happy with the color on this one I've got sometimes.

    So, here are a few photos for you. My Lancaster purchases. The colors are not right though on the one with the striped fabric. The stripes are blues and yellows (how the heck did browns show up?) I'll use for backings for charity quilts, the one on top of those are a gorgeous reds and greens. The pieces beside those to the right are teals (not greens) and the other photo with the 2 fat quarter packs on top are teals (not blues) and creams. Oh, and don't forget to check out the True Blue thread where I posted a few of the 10 Minute Blocks I made last night. Oh heck - I'll go ahead and post them here too. Aren't those Suzi Zoo the cutest pillow panels with the little duck squeezing the giraffe's neck? And Popcorn the Bear - so cute!
    So, the last 2 photos are showing their true colors but not the first 2. Hmmm - doesn't make sense to me!

    Hugs,

    Everyone have a fantabulous weekend - when is the snow blowing south????????????

    I need to finish the one star block and also the canadian maple. Perhaps this weekend since it is calling for rain ~ no snow in the forecast but possible SLEET. Still with the "s" word. grrr. What I wouldn't give to be snowed in with you and the rest of my quilty sisters! Talk about a jelly roll competition - hello!
    Hope you have a wonderful weekend Sandy. Just love that you are on here with us. You make my day more than you realize.

    The same goes for each of YOU out here in MSQC forum land.

    Off to order pizza to be delivered. Too long a day to cook tonite. Pizza is quite a delish meal for the price. I call it my Friday Gourmet Special.

    Suzette, I'm making my Just One Star block from stash (which is small because I'm new) so I may only get one of the right colors. Every one counts!

    Afternoon everyone. I have to get my blocks done for the Just One Star quilts. I wonder if anyone is making just one? Anyway, reading your posts about family members having alzheimers. My son works in a nursing home with the residents that have it and dementia. He does the activities. He has been doing it for 4 years and it is starting to wear on him. In my mind it's the same as the family members and what they go through. I admire all of you having to deal with it. Have a great day

    Morning All!
    I'm off for a day of interior house painting! Don't know if I'm doing the hall, the bathroom, or the study, but it all pays the same!

    Have a great day!

    Woke up this morning to hear DH say "Wow!" and that meant S N O W . . . again. It is melting slowly, but come on. My poor little miniature daffodils are frozen. I need some color in my life!!

    Blondie - your story about your DGM reminded me so much of Mom. We all knew Mom was fading but she was adamant about staying in her own home. Then she started waking the neighbors (quarter of a mile away) in the middle of the night to deliver 'presents' (such as old eyeglasses, etc.) wrapped in paper towels. I brought her home with me and she was fine for a month and then got mad at me one day and snuck out of the house during an ice storm. All she had on over her house dress was a light sweater. When I finally found her she had fallen and had been 'rescued' by a group of ladies who work with the Senior Citizen's Center nearby. Mom was black and blue and bleeding all over and told them that I had beat her. She kept yelling that she had no idea why I was calling her Momma and insisted they keep me away. Of course they believed her . . . as did her sister and a brother who she told I made her climb a ladder and clean windows and do all the housework. Yeah, and I kept her chained when she got out of control . . . they failed to recognize that the mind was going. It is a terrible disease. But, there are times when she can be so loving and so absolutely MOM.

    Hope everyone has a great day. I'm off to the HAVEN!!

    Hum, Friday. It is sunny out, but a little on the cool side. Not sure what this day holds yet. We are having a stag & doe for my son and his lovely fiance next weekend. At the same time, we are having a birthday party for the girls 1 & 8. Plus a house full of guests, so I guess I better get me butt of the chair and do some cleaning. It's not that bad just cluttered. Don't know where I will put all the stuff.

    There are two auction sales this weekend, Saturday and Sunday. Might go to those. I have my last boot camp on Saturday. It has been a blast. They are having another one in about 2 weeks so I think I will sign up again. I need to try and shed a few pounds, ok more than a few. Might get some quilting in today.

    Blondie and Nancy have a wonderful weekend. Blondie, I sure wish you lived closer, I need a new do for the wedding in May!!

    Happy quilting everyone,

    Monique

    TGIF (even though I've only had a 3 day work week). I'm off to aqua aerobic class then to work. that makes the day go quickly. My goal for the weekend is to go to our camp and begin gutting the bathroom so we can reno it before it's time to hook the water up and open camp for the summer. That's our tax return dollar at work. Also want to get my block done for the One Star Block donation project by Moda and get a start on Cory's (my son's) birthday quilt.

    Have a great day everyone!
