    Really?? noone noticed it's Wednesday?

    Can't believe noone has started a wednesday thread!? we had some nasty storms here overnight. seems pretty quiet here now.
    Still nursing my foot, hurts still. Still annoyed at myself for doing it. OK it was an accident but really?? All I did was get up to take the dog out and I stepped wrong. That's it! no fall, no twist , just step. now I'm perched at DD's(so I can sleep in a bed instead of the couch) twiddling my thumbs. So has her sewing machine set up but I can't stand to put pressure on my foot, thought about rigging something else up but the way things are going I would probably sew myself.
    Rebbecca- you're right! I figure between my mom and da we have spent close to 18 years caring for our parents. none of us mind helping out but when you figure the oldest sibling is 67, well it's getting hard.
    Blondie- I hope things go well with your mom. we've gone thru glaucoma with mom, cataract surgery(2) and a hemmorage behind the eye(laser treatment and surgery). It can be kinda scary.

    Wednesday? Are you sure? I thought it was Tuesday - where did that day go? I'll tell you - I actually slept 70% of it away! UGH!!

    I think Spring got stuck somewhere this year. I keep getting up to temps in the 30's when it should be at least in the 50's or 60's. I really want to be outside doing some pick-up and digging in the dirt but I'm so discouraged. Who knows when the sun will shine again?

    Hopefully I am going to get to the sewing room today - have several things I really need to be working on - starting with putting some binding on a couple baby quilts (pre-quilted . . . hanging head in shame). Our new grandbaby could arrive any time now and since the six DGDs already have their suitcases packed for a trip to Nana's, I'd best be prepared, too. Papa finished the cradle and it is sitting in the middle of our dining room table. A beautiful piece. I'll share a photo soon.

    Thinking of all my quilty friends and sending prayers and special wishes where ever needed.

      Here's the cradle - no bedding in it as yet. The mattress is at Momma's house.

        The cradle is beautiful! You all must be so excited. And hey, prequilted is fine- you still do the hard part. The binding!

            Okay. Fantastic cradle. We will now need a final picture of baby, cradle and quilt. Don't forget! We'll be waiting. How exciting! Love those dovetail joints (I think that's what they're called.) What type of wood is it? Reminds me of cedar.

              Morning (checking clock...yes it's still am),
              Bakermom can you train your other foot on the sewing machine "gas" pedal? Crazy that you just stepped wrong!! Hope that boot cast comes soon!
              Sandy the cradle is beautiful!! Your DH is an artist!! Bet you are so excited to meet the new little one!
              Not much happening here. Not planning on sewing today as I need to clean and get to the PO to send Kaylee her goodies! Excited that DBF and I will be getting out of the house today since we never even opened the door yesterday. I see 70's in the temps for next week....can't wait to open the windows and get some fresh air in here!
              Take care quilty buddies!

                Bakermom - just take it easy and let you foot heal. Don't you just hate it when you don't have and exciting adventurous story to tell about how you got the injury? Feel better soon.

                Sandy - that cradle is awesome. the wood does make me think of cedar too. What is it. I agree with Rebecca; a picture of the cradle with bedding and baby is required!!!

                Well the hail, thunderstorms and rain has stopped for the moment. I decided to play hookie (sp?) today and stay home with hubby & son (his usual day off) and just be lazy. I did get my guild blocks done and will probably some D9P for a lap quilt I'm making for my SIL for Xmas - I should be able to finish it by then...hehe.

                Have a great day. Time to fix lunch then maybe......nap time!

                    It's still barely morning here. I have been cutting on the zebra blocks. Em wants hers done too, so I am cutting all of them at once. 27 for the swap and 30 for her zebra quilt. I am mixing hers up though. I am alternating the claws block with a 54-40 or Fight block. They both have the elongated star center, but the corner units are different. It looks pretty good on paper. I hope it does as well in fabric!
                    Sandy, that cradle is fabulous!
                    It is overcast here today with the sun trying to peek through. I should get out and mow the lawn today, but we'll see how that goes. I really want to get this fabric all cut so I can start sewing!
                    Everybody take care! Cathy

                      Suzi, hope your hubby feels better soon. Pneumonia is nothing to sneeze at (sorry!).

                      My prayers are with you and all the other friends here who need it. God bless you!

                        To all who asked, the cradle is made from local black walnut. Usually they 'steam' the walnut which makes it the same color throughout but this was kiln-dried without being steamed and shows the actual sap wood as well as the inside growth. That's where that 'flame' came from on the side.

                          sorry about you DH Suzi,allergies are bad enough but pneumonia is nasty.
                          I guess DS and DIL's house got struck by lightning overnight. They've lost half the electricity in their house, Pcs are messed up and parts of their invisible fence was blown above ground. they are ok , didn't realize anything happened till they got up this a.m.

                            bakermom, that is so scary about you DIL's house. Hopefully they have good insurance to replace all the damaged goods. Lucky no one was hurt and there was no fire.

                              It was a wild and crazy night last night. There were tornado warning most of the night. Not much sleep going on aroud here. Thankful no one was hurt just minor damage. It has been a very stormy week hopefully thing are calming down. Sandy the cradle is lovely. You husband does great woodworking. I know the baby will love it. Prayer to all who are sick and have a sore foot. linda
