    Smile Happy Sunday

    Good Morning All
    I hope that you all are well this Sunday, if your watching the Olympics hope that your country is doing well I know that Team GB is doing well watched the Athletics last night which we did well in

    What will you all be up to today? me I am hoping to trim up some of the excess off the quilt i am working on i think it what you call basted as i have the 3 layers all together I used a spray to do it instead of pins this is something i have not used on a quilt before normally i use pins but as i will be doing some FMQ i don't want pins in the way that said i do have pins around the edges to make sure it don't move but also i didn't want to go too much over the edge that said when my friend was helping me on Friday we did it & had to take it all off & re-do it as needed to put the top on the other way on the backing & wadding lol

    I realised that I don't need quite as wide as i done this one but hey it look nice (i hope) when done well you all have a great Sunday take care
    Hugs Janice

    Morning Everyone,

    It's just after 5am here and the house is dark and quiet. I enjoy these early morning moments when I can read over posts I missed, watch the candles flicker, listen to the rain and drink my tea. Once I get my butt in gear (will require atleast another tea) I am going to work on my Backdoor Bear raw edge applique and ponder a new wall quilt design.

    Hope everyone has a wonderful day.

    Namaste,
    Koda

    Good Morning Koda
    It nearly 10.45am here i am about to go & set table up to trim the quilt, your Backdoor Bear sounds nice i love the planning/designing a project/quilt i just ordered some more of the temporary spray got a good deal by buying 3 cans i had some money for my birthday so this has paid for it

    I am in two minds (well if i had a mind lol) to attempt my next big quilt from either a book/pattern that i have (have plenty of books) or do i create one in EQ7 & if so what blocks to use i have seem to have used similar blocks on a few quilts so not sure what to do i like the EQ as i can see fabrics & make adjustments but i really should do one using a pattern i have quite a few Thimbleberry books as i do love them i have plenty of time as it won't be for quite some time before i do it lol

    Well you have a good day
    Hugs Janice

    Good Morning, good afternoon, good evening!

    I have no sense of timing around the world or even in the states except that we are all on different zones.

    I slept in late this morning as I was up late last night canning tomatoes. More this morning after church. I've been sticking the ones we don't eat into the freezer - so between sis and I we have like a gazillion for sauces, soups and etc.
    Of course after I finished work yesterday morning, hubby, BIL and sis joined me at mom's. We worked until about noon and called it quits until the early evening. It was good to have the guys help us out. Mom is delighted to have all her chicks around. Yesterday was brother's birthday so after we do some more canning it will be a dinner for him. He just turned 63.

    The Olympics. Oh yes! I think it was LIssau who mentioned ages in the various sports. Wow and holey moley! I wasn't aware of those folks - I think that it must be how the events are being presented. NBC, that peacock network is showing the olympics. I have only seen snippets of equestrian events. When I am able to watch, all I have been able to see is gymnastics, swimming, volleyball and recently track. Obviously don't watch all day and by midnight here it is all repeat of what was shown earlier in the evening. I found that out while canning last night. Thought I would get to see different venues. wah, wah wah.

    Have a wonderful day everyone

    Good morning everyone~~
    It's a hazy day out there and I am hoping for rain so I don't have to spend time in the mesquito garden at Dad's today, but that is being selfish because it needs tended to. I will spray myself with Listerine before I head out. He read somewhere that it repels the bugs and as it doesn't get every single one to stay away, it does help.

    I fussed around too much last night pulling one project out after another and making my mind think too much on what pattern I want to use for my teal fabrics. I love Cathedral Windows and have always wanted to do a large quilt and it looks like I am leaning towards making the teals the background and the creams as the window parts. That way, the teals will be the flowery petal looking areas. What do you think? And, the petals will all be different. Now, the problem for me is to figure it all out. I suppose I will have to do a sample block or so in different colors. Sounds like a challenge for me.

    Best get a move on here. Church is in half an hour and I am still not ready.

    Hugs and hope the day is a good one for all,

    Good morning lovely people.

    It was so bloody hot yesterday I thought I was going to melt. I did go to the family BBQ in the afternoon. Someone had put a tarp in the lining of the box of the truck and filled it with water. Redneck swimming pool. The younger ones sure enjoyed it. They wanted me in there but I would have needed a ladder just to get into the truck. My cousin's girlfriend is visiting from Thailand and she brought a suitcase of clothes, belts and some wallets with her. I did not know this at the time and watched as they were going through this suitcase and wondering what in tarnation they were doing. I did pick a wallet as the clothes were so tiny, they would have fit the grandchildren LOL!! She is a lovely girl and even she found the heat unbearable. Had a wonderful time.

    Last night we were at another BBQ at friends. Our friends were up a their cottage. A lovely meal and wonderful times.

    It is still so bloody hot here. We did get a little rain in the night. Hopefully we get a whole lot more.

    I hope to quilt on the baby quilt today, as I work all next week.

    Have a wonderful Sunday all.
    Blessed are the children of the piecemakers for they shall inherit the quilts!

    Good morning all...

    Today is a rainy day, it's rained all night and so far we've had 1 1/2", hopefully it will keep raining for a little while. It's good quilting weather for me. I'm working on Mom's quilt and it is beginning to look like a quilt top now.

    I need to do some housework and laundry this afternoon.

    Well off to work on the quilt some more. Have a wonderful day...prayers and hugs to all.
