    Happy Tuesday Ladies

    I perservered and finally finished the big quilt yesterday. The next one will be completed soon. I also was able to get a little bit of work done on other stuff - why I even made dinner!

    It fits the top of my queen bed nicely although I didn't make it for me. Those are my sister (Cat) and DD, (Sarah) holding it up. Can you tell my daughter is the shorter one? LOL. I believe my middle son will be thrilled with this. And it is made to LAST.

    Now that this one is done, and the other mostly done just need to finish the binding, I have already set my sights on another scrappy one. The next one will be all shirt scraps. I really should do something with all my UFO's but that requires too much thinking. And planning. I am really a fly by the seat of my britches kinda gal.

    Off to see how much coffee is left.

    Keep dry, Nancy. I feel so badly for everyone that has been left with the aftermath of Irene.

    Good morning Blondie and all my other quilting buddies. Blondie your quilt is beautiful. Your son will be thrilled with it. I am very hurt this morning.MY help at work started yesterday. New nurse barely out of nursing school( no experience whatsoever) and was hired in making almost $3.00 more than i make. I have been a nurse for 17 years and have been with the school system for almost 5 years now.
    I honestly think somebody screwed up not intentional but you couldn't have spit in my face and got a worse reaction when i heard this.My feelings are hurt and I am insulted. I am talking to the principal when I get to work and see who I have to talk to to get this straightened out.I am just sick.Hopefully they will see they have messed up.Somebody needs to look at the pay scale and fix it on my end.I work to hard to let this go.Of all the people in the building the principal knows just how hard I work hopefully he can help me. We will see.
    You guys have a great day.

    Beautiful quilt, Blondie - your son will love it!!!!
    (If he doesn't, or even just squicnh just once - send it my way where it would get lots of lovins'.)

    That is a kick in the pants, Rhonda and I hope you get someone to listen. 17 years and you know those kids like the back of your hand at that - truly, my prayers are with you.

    Well, have to scoot. The kiddos are waiting here too. I was so tired last night, after a quick visit with a friend down the street, I promptly came home and dozed in the chair until 1 AM and then crawled into bed. So, I did get lots of sleep hours in. They plumb wear me out. Wasn't a normal day as they threw me in with a one-on-one kid. The aide that is supposed to be with him just called off for the first 6 weeks of school. Well, we'll see how this pans out. The kid can be violent - was even thrown out of school last year for it, so I keep my distance. I am hoping they are looking into a sub like they are supposed to do in this situation - plus, my classes I'm responsible for get tossed for now. That's not right either. Well - anyways - off to see what the day holds. I am grateful I have a job.
    I will SMILE today - may as well make the best of it!
    Hugs,

    Rhonda, that absolutely must be a clerical error! My heart sank when I read this. Knowing what a hard worker you are and the faithful heart you possess, I cannot believe anyone would/could slight intentionally. Hoping to hear later that this has been resolved.

    Pisceslibra, good to see you back with us. You need to keep that wrist flexible for sewing for sure! I think all men should be able to handle their own children. Period.

    Trish, I thought of you so much yesterday, wondering how the first day went. Makes me wonder just how many schools offer this type of special treatment, education for their children? You're a better trooper than I would be. How is hubs?

    Shirley, the quilt pattern is called Pineapple Blossom. I was inspired by the Block Lotto block swap I did several months ago. It is a Bonnie Hunter Pattern.

    Good morning! It is so good to be back on the forum! Gosh, we were without power for 36 hours from Irene but it felt like a lifetime! I think I have an addiction to the internet. Couldn't do any sewing either and boy was that hard! Goes to show you how much we take for granted having something like electricity. I'm very thankful to have it back!!! So I have some catching up to do here. I'm gonna try to take it slow as I have lots of other things to catch up on as well.

    Rhonda, so sorry about your job situation. We'll pray you have it all straightened out real soon.

    Blondie, LOVE the quilt! If you son doesn't want it, send it here!
    When life throws you scraps, make a quilt!

    Blondie...What a gorgeous quilt...real purdy! Did you machine or hand piece it? Onward to your next creative challenge. Rhonda...Your situation is a real kicker. I'm sure they will see the error of their ways and raise your pay accordingly....I'm praying on this for you....let us know how it turns out.

    We got some sad news from our vet yesterday...Molly's body has built up a resistance to insulin and there is little that can be done. So we're doing our best to make her comfortable as long as she isn't suffering. Jeff and I have no children, so our little black scotty is like our baby. My big hunk of a hubby's eyes fill with tears just as the thought of losing Molly.

    We saw so much footage on Vermont's damage from Irene on CNN last night. Some of the old bridges were there one second and gone the next. Very tragic. I pray for everyone having to deal with the aftermath, which will take months if not years to clean up. We are still cleaning up from our tornado in 2009.

    I wish all of my quilty friends a good Tuesday...it's supposed to be really hot here the rest of the week. Hugs, Barb
