    Wednesday!!! What will today bring!

    I hope I don't step on any toes today by starting this thread. If I do I apologize.

    Today I have a dentist appointment in the morning and then off grocery shopping. Only 6 sleeps left until I am off to Lancaster, PA and then Cincinatti for the big quilt show. I have been checking the weather for those two places and seems it is going to be warm. Not sure what to pack. I am so looking forward to my trip, and may I say a well deserved trip.

    Still working on my whole cloth and don't know if I will ever get it done. Hand quilting takes a long time.

    Well, that's my blurb for today.

    Have a great rest of the week everyone.

    Monique
    Blessed are the children of the piecemakers for they shall inherit the quilts!

    Good Morning, Ladies

    What a wonderful day to sleep in late. The rain lulled me into a different world of warm cozy blankies and a quiet house. Such a wonderful world to laze around in. then the phone rang. Then Gracie barked - if you have never heard a chi chi bark, let me assure you, it is loud from a small creature and demanding. So, with my first cuppa, here I am. Groggy, soggy brain.
    Will check in later.
    Hope the dental visit goes well, Monique. Big hugs

        I am feeling for Monique - hope your toothie check up goes well.
        Blondie, haul Gracie's little butt back to the bed and snooze some more.
        Gina, I think I have Abby's cold in my nose - I need a nose mitten, I do think.
        Is this sinus stuff catching over the internet?
        Al said I was quite restless during the night, having trouble breathing.
        I may head back to the sack today.

            Yes Gina and Deb, my cold is on it's last legs. At least when I moved today it didn't make me wheezy to the point of not breathing! Geez I hate that. I have had to have my inhaler with me in every room in the house. I did bird cages Monday and thought I was going to croak! I'm not sneezing as much anyway. I'm better!
            Going to work on my swap quilt today. Then I'll take a nap. Have a great day everyone. Hugs, Jan L

              it's still cold here,and they are predicting snow. Not much, but it's still snow.there is light coating on my truck! my poor crocuses! They were in full bloom
              Thinking of trying to finish a small quilt top today.Not sure how I want to quilt it. The last one i did "big stitch" hand quilting but i need to give my hands a rest. right hand is still swollen and tender. I bought a pattern I saw at the Expo last week. "Playtime" by Kariepatch Designs. It's a 3D quilt. I want to make the playmat for a shower gift in May. I should have enough cute fabric lurking in my box to make one. I'm thinking of adding some crinkly baby toys to it, too. Not going to get done if I stay here though.....

                Hi all. Monique - do enjoy that quilt trip and tell us all about it; we want pictures. Hope everyone is or will be feeling better soon. Blondie - back to bed sounds good.

                Today we are actualling hitting 40. Just a tease before the big snow storm we're supposed to get Thurs night through Fri night. Over a foot of snow in the higher elevations (that's me). Oh well, we ALWAYS get snow in April no matter how nice the weather has been; so, officially, this could be it and then be done for the year (my fingertips to God's ear!).

                Have a great day everyone!

                  Howdy all!
                  It's raining here. Living here in Western Wash. that is the usual status of the weather!
                  I think I may have figured out the source of the trouble from the pre-schooler. She HATES change to her routine, and there has been a lot of talk in class about going to Kindergarten next year. Since her name is one of the ones that is being thrown out there as "leaving" for K, I think she is worried. She loooves her teacher and school, so I think it is distressing her that she will have to "leave". She has started to revert to wanting to wear pull-up diapers all day and last night she asked for her pacifier. She hasn't had that thing in, I don't know how long. So I think today we will talk to the Kindergarten teacher after school to see if we can come in and look at the classroom. I know it may not work, but something has to be done before her father puts her in a box and ships her to her grandparents.
                  To all of you still fighting snow - I'm soo sorry! Perhaps you'll enjoy spring a little bit more when it finally comes tripping up the walkway!
                  To all us still fighting the colds and ickies, I'll share my box of Kleenex. (No, not the used ones Sandy!)
                  Well, off to get something going in the crockpot and try to squeeze in some sewing!
                  Take care! Cathy

                    Re: Wednesday!!! What will today bring!

                    So glad you are starting to feel better Jan.

                    Yup - the snow is coming here too. Hope it's here and gone - SNAP! - just like that!

                    I was a one on one Aide today - man, is that exhausting - mentally!

                    I am so not feeling comfortable with my sewing stuff in Katie's room. I was okay with it until DH moved all her stuff out of there - ALL OF IT - that's what is bugging me I guess. I am very uncomfortable every time I walk in there - think I'll move some of it back out and into my bedroom - I think that would make me feel better. I can't turn it into my sewing room the way I would like it cause that would be too defining on me thinking she won't come back, so the walls stay the same and I won't put anything on them that's mine. I guess too it's bugging me she hasn't contacted us at all for about 2 weeks - just really miss her.

                    Sewing tonight. Noone is home but me and the machine. We will be connecting with each other. Why these smilies don't show up where I put them is beyond me. I meant to put one right HERE. One is on my title line and one is at the beginning of my post. Oh well.

                    Okay-dokey - DH is going out the door so the night is all mine.
                    Hugs,

                      Cathy, my one DD did the same thing in pre-school. She was NOT going to K. The first day I walked her to school and her teacher met her at the door. She walked away from me without even a look back! Kids can be so funny1

                        Re: Wednesday!!! What will today bring!

                        I'm not so sure "funny" is the word I was looking for. "Frustrating" may be the word of the day. I am sure she will be fine when the day comes, but September is a VERY long way from today.
                        If I can't get her and my husband to stop the "Battle of Willfulness", I am going to check myself into the mental hospital. He thinks she should have NO choices, and she wants some control over her small world.
                        Two control freaks in the same house? I may start drinkin'! One of the ladies in here was/is a bartender. I may hit her up for some recipes! Although booze is almost as expensive as quilting cottons, so I may just stick to the fabric store instead.

                        Trish: I am sorry to hear about Katie not getting in touch with you. That must be so hard. Did you explain your feelings on this to your husband? It may be easier for your husband to not have to look at her things, and be reminded that she isn't there. Can you re-arrange the space with some of her stuff back in, so that you can use the space, but still feel like she could come for a visit? May be turn a desk into a flat layout or cutting surface. I use my bed for laying out big projects when I don't want them run over on the living room floor.
                        Hugs to you all! Back to pinning blocks!

                          Cathy,

                          Oh boy! I remember those days. I think your idea of taking her to see her new classroom is great! I'd ask the kindergarten teacher for any suggestions she might have to help relieve her anxieties. I don't understand why they don't have orientation for these little ones. This can be so scary for them. Even having gone to pre-school it's still scary when one has to venture into a new situation. I remember my girls going to a whole week's orientation for middle school and one for high school. I think they should have something for the little ones. In the meantime, I wouldn't worry about the reversion to pull-ups and pacifier. That will fade as she gets acclimated. Poor baby. It would be so great if you could find out who will be in her class. It's possible you may know someone on the list. If they could get together over the summer, maybe a mom and kids lunch date or a play date, having a buddy really makes a difference starting out.

                            I'm really going out on a limb here, but......I think I would take a hard look at the reason for emptying her room. Is it possible that her things were moved out through anger rather than a great need for the space? When Joanna left us I was very, very, very angry and very, very, very hurt. It was so tempting to take all of her stuff and throw it in the front yard! To us, taking over her room says we don't want you to come back, so we didn't go that route. Joanna left, but she came back. What if your daughter comes back? Do you want her to see her room is no longer there for her? Don't close the door unless that's really what you want. She's still a kid. Things are always changing. What's going on today may not be going on a week from now, a month from now, a year from now.

                            I have now taken over Joanna's room as a sewing room. After she went off to college, I started a sewing business out of my house and I needed a sewing room. It was at that point that she and I decided, together, that I should turn her room into a place to sew. Guess what, both of my girls are taking care of the house while we're in England. I'm actually at the point when I wonder when will they actually become independent and move on? LOL

                            At one point not long ago, Joanna looked at me and said, "I don't know why I did that, I don't know why I left?" I'm not saying you should keep her room there for her indefinitely, but I wonder if maybe you should give it some time. I don't see that you're really enjoying using it as a sewing room right now anyway.

                            Just food for thought! Forgive me if I've been too frank.

                              Thanks for your input - no, you aren't being too frank. I just have some things in there for storage - so it's not like I am using it as a sewing room. But I will be moving her things back in there gradually - it just needs to look like she is not completely out of here in my opinion. Right now she is with a good family, signed up in another school district and new softball team and she seems happy. If she ends up staying longer than the summer, I won't be surprised. That's fine with me cause I know she is being taken care of. Still pretty hurt, but as long as it keeps her away from the drinking and bad influences here - I'm okay with that.
                              I'm going to make an honest effort in going through things in the basement that just sit there - so I can sell the stuff to make money to make my sewing area in the basement a reality. The sooner I do that - the sooner everything gets arranged how we want it. Anyways - off for another day.
