    Barb,
    I will hold you in my prayers for your cruise and your health as there is a lot of walking on that trip if you take any side trips, that is. Go and swim with the dolphins!! Have a wonderful day. I need to pack today. Got my blocks signed yesterday for the swap so will mail them out today along with two quilts. Thank goodness for that!! Been years coming. Talk to you later, Piece and blessings, Vicki

    Barb,
    Cruising is so much fun. I have been praying for you and your dh this whole week since I saw a thread about your cruise that your stay healthy for your trip and on your trip.
    I didn't have to use freezer paper, thank goodness. Another project to cut up and apply. I tried it out first, on another fabric and it wrote smoothly so I did them all in one swoop which shocked me. I figured I would have to do 7 or 8 a day to complete the task because of my arthritic hands, but I made it, praise God!! Thank you for the hint, though. I also read about it on the thread which is a very good hint!! I'm not a craft person or painter; just a quilter. I used to quilt big quilts on my sewing machine, but no more. Bought my dh a longarm (Viking) 4 or 5 yrs. ago and he hasn't used it yet. Barb, have a FABULOUS time on the cruise and eat an extra dessert and some extra cherries jubilee on the last night for me. Baked Alaska wouldn't be bad either. LOL Piece and blessings, Vicki

    Hi Barb,
    Thank you for visiting my "Sugar and Spice" quilt and your lovely comments. It meant a lot. I doubled the batting to give it more puffiness. Girls love puffiness when they are younger. LOL Although, my son wanted puffiness on his quilt---the "Storm at Sea" one---and I didn't do that. I used warm and natural batting in his. I still haven't sent it out. Today, it will go in the mail, thank goodness. That, and "Fairy Dust" which I still have to post a finished picture. I am quick to piece and slow to quilt as my back injury prevents me from a lot of that, but I do it. This is a lot of fun here, isn't it? Can't wait to get a Jacob's Ladder block from you. I still have to sign mine, darn it. I guess I will try to sign about 5 a day or maybe, 8 as we are leaving on Sat. for Gatlinburg, TN. Going to meet a couple of M* quilters on the way home. I am excited about that. I love putting a real face/voice with people.
    Have a wonderful day!! Piece and blessings,
    Vicki

    Babs,
    Thank you ever so much for your lovely e-mail. You are quite right it is a tough day and to make matters worse, my dh keeps bringing in little things from the few boxes we got from her home. I wouldn't have been down in AZ right now but I still miss calling her on the phone. It's hard having Mother's Day so far away from our children==California and Italy. But, this was our choice, not theirs. I really appreciate your thoughtfulness and thank you for being such a wonderful friend. Happy Mother's Day to you!! Piece and blessings, Vicki
  7. aha,, another one with the DH that can eat anything... bummer right!

    Thanks for the info. I know what you mean about the weight issue. I'm always on weight watchers. It's so hard to lose anything, especially when socializing always seems to revolve around food. When folks come over to visit we're always out touring around, eating out all the time, hitting the pubs for ale (lager for me, don't like ale.) It doesn't help that Joe has a sweet tooth and keeps a stash of chocolate and sweets in the hall closet. I really have to force myself to stay out of there. I wish he would put a lock on it! Hahaha.

    Barb, What cut of roast do you buy for the crockpot. I don't know what I'm doing wrong but my roast doesn't come out that tender when I use my crockpot.

    Barb, Which tut uses turnovers to make a star? I'd like to check it out. I thought the only star Jenny's made in tuts was the jelly roll star. I must've missed that one.
