    Hooray for Fridays!

    Good Morning Everyone!

    It is Friday, the end of the week, the promises of fun weekend ahead, however you look at it, have a great day!

    I am planning on staying the weekend with Mom, so I may not be online folks the next few days.

    Running super late this morning - hubs is off work for Veteran's Day and he let me go back to sleep.

    To all of those who have served or are currently serving our country, let me say a personal thank you for the commitment to keep our liberties safe. God Bless each and every Vet.

      Good Morning Everyone,

      Just a quick note, as I'm getting DH ready to leave on his hunting trip...then several days of blessed sewing all day if I choose! If he's true to form he will get homesick and come home early...he does this every year. So I have learned to do my fun things the first two days of his trips and let the rest go until later.

      DD is recouping well after her wreck. Yesterday she found out her neck is not fractured, but has a severe whiplash. All plans to move her to California are cancelled. She is sore and bruised everywhere, but she is realizing it could have been so much worse. Uncle Henry checked out okay and is now back home.

      Special thanks and Hugs to all of you for your prayers, well wishes and pm''s wonderful to have friends who pray and care. B

        Considering your explanation of the accident, it is an absolute miracle they both survived and survived with so little injury. Two very lucky folks. What a great relief to hear they are going to be fine.

        Goodbye Europe! Hello California! Home sweet home.


          Re: Hooray for Fridays!

          Hello everyone glad it's Friday. I hope everyone has a great weekend and a great holiday! I am going to try to make some christmas presents today!

          Until next time hugs and best stitches to you all,

            Good Morning and Thank you for your service to all of our wonderful troops both active and retired we can never do enough to honor you.
            Glad to hear Barb's daughter and uncle are on the mend. Today is my sis's birthday so will spend sometime with her today. A good friend came out yesterday and we quilted a quilt for her Great Grand daughter. Need to get back in my sewing room and try to finish a quilt that is a monster and I just can't make myself finish, but it needs to be done sooooooooooooooooo off I go.

            Have a great Friday.

                Re: Hooray for Fridays!

                Hi everyone!

                Blondie, I hope you have a great weekend with your mom. You'll be missed here! We all look forward to a chat with you early (sometimes not so early!) in the morning. You're a blessing to all of us!

                Thanks to my daughter who came back from a year's deployment from Iraq, and for her sargeant who came back too and married her! There are three little girls to be thankful for as a result of their safe homecoming.

                Barb, I wish for your DD a speedy recovery. And a recovery for your nerves! When my DD was hit by a truck while crossing a street, my heart didn't stop beating wildly for a week. I hope she'll soon be on the mend with your uncle.

                Oldgurl, you've given me a laugh or two to start my day. You crack me up!

                My only major decisions today are whether to piece my sunflower quilt first or baste and begin quilting the soft pastel baby pinwheel quilt first. To piece or to quilt? That is the question. I'll sip a cup of tea and mull over it.

                Wind is here to blow the stubborn old rain clouds away. Promises of sun for my trip tomorrow to Centre Harbor and a visit to Keepsake Quilting! It's as good as a quilt show up there and there are so many fabrics to touch! I will come home with only enough fabric to make a new tote bag. I really need one. No, really I do. Yes, there are three hanging in the mudroom, but only three! I need an even number to feel really at peace.

                Happy weekend to all!

                  Re: Hooray for Fridays!

                  Happy Veteran's Day to those who served, many giving the ultimate sacrifice. Loved your pics this morning, Blondie. So true. Have a good time with are a good daughter, my Friend.

                  Barb, glad to hear the news! I imagine that is a great relief for you, too.

                  Cyndi...enjoy your quilting trip! Stopped at Keepsake last week. It is a beautiful shop, but I still like the one in Henniker better. The staff is so much more helpful and friendly.

                  Old it your birthday today? A wish for a happy one if so! I still haven't forgotten about your recipe! After the Fair....hopefully things will quiet down then.

                  Today we're heading over to the hospital to set up the Fair with our crafts and millions of cookies! Will be there tomorrow at 7AM, waiting for the vendors and then the 'hordes' of shoppers!!! It will all end at 3 and here's hoping we make tons of $$$$ for the hospital!

                  Have a wonderful day everyone!


                    Re: Hooray for Fridays!

                    Good Morning everyone!!!

                    Spending a quiet day and taking our local restaurants up on free meals for Vets.

                    it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

                      Hi girls! I'm new here but wanted to drop by and say Hi!

                      It's been a long week for me....My friend (and coworker) passed away on Monday after a short battle with cancer (only 8 weeks). Tonight, an ex-coworker friend and I are going out to do her favorite things - eat Chinese and shop 'til we drop....And laugh.

                      My mom will be here tonight and we're going quilt shop hopping in Omaha tomorrow. DH and the boys will be working on our rather ridiculous Christmas light display (it's one of those that has a radio station and the lights play to music)....

                      Happy Veterans Day to everyone that served & THANK YOU!


                        Re: Hooray for Fridays!

                        A heartfelt THANK YOU to our Vets, especially my son Tony, who is an Iraq war veteran who also served in Egypt and after Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans. Your sacrifices are appreciated.

                        Hi Cherie, and Welcome to the Forum! Would love to see a pic of your "ridiculous" light display! Are you planning to YouTube it??

                        It is a sunny, breezy day here, absolutely RAINING leaves. The colors are at their peak, my cherry tree is a blazing butterscotch against the dark green Leyland Cypresses, and the yard (untouched by human hand or rake so far this autumn) is just adrift with reds and golds. Picture perfect. Spike and I are going to tromp around a bit and then I'll be fmq'ing my pink quilt for my cousin Julie. Sandy and Michele both posted a great link to fmq "rules" and I will remain sober and decaffeinated and see if that makes a difference in my quilting, LOL.

                          Thanks for the welcome, Deb! We have you tubed it in the past.....Let me try to find the link and get back to you.


                            Re: Hooray for Fridays!

                            Here's one of last year's videos I took on my cell phone so it's really hard to see but I think you get the idea.....

                            He redid it this year so that the windows will be like this:

                            The columns will be like this:

                            We will only have white and red lights this year instead of red, blue, green and white like in the past years. We'll have two or three "mega" trees instead of one and some fancy kind of led floodlights that I don't understand yet. lol


                              Re: Hooray for Fridays!

                              Good morning...Happy Veterans Day and a BIG thank you to all veterans and those on active duty! I'm a bit envious of those who are going to quilt shops today. I live in a rural area, am not close to any city, and "real" quilt shops are practically non-existent around here.

                              It's a day off work for me...Yay! Have a wonderful, safe day!
