    She made a couple changes to reflect the designs in the background fabric, no zebra-a tiger in it's place instead. ( DD is 21, she's been making quilts since she was about 10. )
    Thank you so very, very much for the link. I love that quilt and your DD did a fantastic job!

    Re: Wednesday, Wednesday.

    Glad to see Shauna and Jan on here. Missed seeing you girls. The tornadoes will still be around bc it's hurricane weather now and they have bad strong winds with them and sometimes tornadoes. Today was hot,hot, hot! No rain which we need in a bad way.
    Suzi, love that baby quilt! You are so good girl! Wish we lived next door so you could show me how you do it! Later, taters ,Sam

    Shauna, it's so good to hear from you. I miss you! Suzi, I love the baby quilt. It is 95 here today. Hot, Hot, Hot! I love A/C. I would love it if it stayed 70 degrees, and sunny. Otherwise I like fall and winter. I know I'm strange. lol I got my nails done today. That's it. Oh, I made fudge for the lady that did my nails and I made dinner. So I feel like I did nothing all day. I needed a day off though. I've been working on my fan quilt and almost have it together. I need to look for backing and border fabric. I'll do that on Friday when my friend Dawn and I go to see another friend in Batavia, NY. We always hit a couple of shops in Buffalo or surrounding towns. There is also a shop hop going on this week. We could hit one of those shops.
    Well, I've rambled on about nothing much so I'll close for now. Love you all, Jan

    Shauna, we are a bit south of you here in Washington and my tomatoes are still in my window sill! It looks like it should stay above 50, so I can finally set them out. The peas and spinach are loving it though!

    I have an order for at least two goats. They want one of the yearlings and one of this year's babies. Since we are just getting started with the kidding season here, they get first choice of the babies. Lucky them!

    I got a nice piece of house work done this morning and almost all of the laundry. Just the whites left to run through as the last load with some bleach. Does anyone else do that, or just my Mom's family? Mom always washed the clothes and saved the whites for last. She said the bleach would keep the washer fresh until the next wash day, or so said her mom. We never had that sour smell in any of our clothes so I guessed she was right. This was long before they made special products to clean your wash machine.

    I'm going to go check on how the roast is defrosting, we may have it tomorrow if it's not thawed yet! Then I'm gonna sneak in some sewing time. I need to get the two pieces of batting attached together, trim it, and then fuse the layers together. Once that is taken care of, then I can whip out the tote bag I have planned for Em's teacher's gift. I think I'll use it to wrap a nice bottle of tequila for her to make margaritas with! After putting up with our pre-schoolers all year, she certainly deserves it!
    Have a good evening!

    Brrr, brrr - cold and wet here all day Wednesday and more of the same today (Thursday morning in Australia). Winter in the Snowy Mountains and the ski season opens on the weekend, should be a bumper season this year! Has the cyclone (tornado) season passed now for you Stateside gals? Have been noting your high, high temps over there and am happy to be cold - absolutely hate hot weather.

    yeah our spring was cool and rainy-ridiculous amount of rain. Now we've jumped straight into summer high 80s and 90s.

    Wow you easterners are sure getting the weather. It is cool here and overcast. WE had a nice weekend but that was it. Below norm temp. My poor tomato and cucumber plants are turning a sickly green from too much rain and not enough warm sunshine. Oh well with this weather I am still quilting. Suppose to be painting the house but too cool out...

    Sandy, we found the pattern at the quilt and sewing expo last year. DD's been waiting for another baby to arrive so she could make it!

    Very hot here in NH. But I promised myself I wouldn't complain after the long and cold winter! That was a very pretty pink quilt, Suzi! Very feminine looking. Have a great Wednesday, everyone!

    Re: Wednesday, Wednesday.

    Well it is a cloudy cool day in Alberta. I do not like the heat, so this is fine with me. If I could find some place to live that the high temp was 25 C and the low of 15 C I would be gone in a heart beat.

    I am doing some varnishing of newels so DH can get our stair railing finished. I also had a couple people in to give quotes on a back fence, new eavestrough and soffit.

    I am trying to make a fabric bowl/mat, using the wrapped clothes line. If I can not get the sides to start it will be a mat. I also have a quilt I want to finish today so I should get at it.

    Enjoy your Wednesday!

    Re: Wednesday, Wednesday.

    90's here too. But I'm going to be brave and venture up to sew. now to position the fans so they blow on me and not my fabric!
    supper is in the crockpot so I can ignore it.


    Finally got some pictures uploaded of things I had cut out while I was laid up. also some things I've been working on now that i'm semi mobile. picture quality isn't the greatest but they're ok. There are also pics of the last minute quilt Dd made for her sister. hope you enjoy them.
