    Default Thursday, the last day of Feb 2019

    Good morning. I have a challenge for you all. No buying any fabric on Feb 29, 30 or 31 okay? LOL!!

    I didn't do much yesterday except laundry. Yes I did get into my sewing room, no sewing but cutting. Speaking of cutting, I sliced my thumb with a large knife while preparing dinner last night. Stupidity it what it was. Good thing it is my left hand.

    Don't know what today will bring yet. Chatting with Blondie she is now making doll clothes for her granddaughter's AG doll. She also continues to work on the COC quilts. I am sure she would love to hear from you, drop her a line.

    Have a great day everyone.
    Blessed are the children of the piecemakers for they shall inherit the quilts!

    Good day to all!

    Oh Monique, I sure hope you heal fast.....I hate it when I cut myself! I recently changed the blade on my rotary cutter. Wasn’t to long after I saw lots of blood. I have no idea how it happened......I never felt a thing! Thankfully no fabric was harmed in the process...... it’s healed and so far all is good.

    I’ll take you up on the challenge.....we’ll see if I can do it.....I think I can......I think I can!

    Got several rows sewed together and then attached together.......hoping to finish by the weekend, time will tell. I’ve got lots to do today, lots of errands, so I may not get much done today.

    Storms are brewing for the weekend......oh joy......another round. Just shoveled several inches yesterday.

    Praying that Joy’s hand is healing OK. Prayers for many more. Hope everyone has a wonderful day. Hugs.

    Good morning! It's my last workday for this week. I'm going back into full retirement mid-May and I can't wait! We've had some warm, DRY days this week. They were really needed. We've had so much rain this year that our lake is at the highest level in it's history. The Corp of Engineers is releasing lots more water into the river and some flooding has occurred. We live on high ground at the other end of the county so we're okay.
    Not much sewing going on at home...I have a donation quilt project started that I work on at sit-n-sews. It's time to work on income taxes too. Hope everyone has a great day and weekend ahead.

    Anita ~ Love these cute pics you've been posting recently!

    Good Morning, Everyone ~ A busy day yest. with several errands, but I managed to get them done in a timely fashion, get my groc. home, put away, gobbled a quick lunch, & was off to see the surgeon at 1 p.m. He said my incision looks ok, which relieved my mind. The numbness & tingling will take time. He's estimating 6 mos. or so. Depending on how long one had symptoms prior to the surgery, it can take maybe that long for the symptoms to resolve. So I think I have a long wait.

    I'll be making DH's spelt bread today. I'm getting antsy to get into the sewing room & at least do some piecing.

    It's supposed to be in the mid-50's today, but more cold & snow is headed our way on the week end.

    Good morning,

    It's a play hooky day from the office. A little bit of stitching on some boat cushion covers so they can be stored in the garage. They are almost done and then time to play with my other projects. Lots of new EMB designs to stitch. Love to make some into dining chair covers. Like everyone we Just need more time to stitch!

    Sending best wishes to all of you for a happy day.

    Good morning ladies,
    I will have to catch up on forum threads when I get back home. It's been wonderful and quite busy retreat so far. Yesterday I went snowshoeing, first time ever. We are very fortunate, one of the quilters is a Canadian snowshoe coach. She has a coached someone who is on his way to an international event. It's very pretty in nature, with challenging hills through the woods.

    It's slow going on the kindred pinwheels. I have the quarter sections sewn. I have 16 colours, 16 quarter blocks. I have 14 blocks sewn. The longest is matching and coordinating fabrics so no two touch, and shades.

    Enjoying morning coffee in the sunroom, sewing room.

    Enjoy your day. Be safe. Stay warm and stay dry.

    Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

    Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.

    Good Morning All,

    I woke up this morning and rolled back over. Morgan's off, so I probably won't have anybody today. I'll make hay while the sun's on the other side of this fog! Can't even see the traffic on the ramp behind the house!

    Hopefully, Mike will hear back today from BAM. He said everything went really well yesterday.

    We didn't pick up the circus tickets yesterday, so we'll do that today and I need another block of birdseed. I'm sure if I look around I'll find other things I should pick up.

    I started work on my April door hanging yesterday and managed to get almost a whole row sewn onto the hexie quilt before my hand started protesting.

    Monique, I'll accept your challenge! Only because I bought ahead last week and everything is coming in this week. I bought a set (1/2 yard cuts) of vintage sewing fabrics in grays. It's darker than the picture, but the fabric feels like a dream. I bought it for Melinda, so I'll get that in the mail to her today, too. The two charm packs of Mayfield Indigo I ordered arrived yesterday. I think I'll only need 1 to make enough four patches to finish up Nana and Nandy's quilt. I have another layer cake, but I think I'm going to save it for later. I really like that fabric. The DD I bought last week(?) should arrive today. So, I really don't need to buy anything!

    Talked to MIL last night. She's going to have her knee replaced. She'll go to rehab for a few weeks and then back to her house. I hope it helps her! BIL will have his hands full. His ex isn't getting her taxes ready. There's some convoluted reasoning about them not getting a divorce, but they're no longer together. According to MIL, he's a lot happier, so I'm happy for him. She really would like a quilt made for her best friends. I think I'll take the left over pack of Mayfield and make a large throw for them and surprise her and them, too.

    Well, I'd best get started. Have a wonderful day!

    Prayers for those in need there are so many. Prayers of thanksgiving for all of our many blessings.
    Katrina

    My you are all busy and productive. Good news Joy about your hand. Just take It easy andnext year by this time, you will have forgotten what that tingling felt like.
    Snowshoeing sounds like fun. If you have to have snow, then enjoy it, right?
    As for me, got the taxes done, now for writing the checks. I think it should be "no taxes after retirement" . How am I suppose to remember when the quarterly's are due? Hummm….
    Sewed the rest of the snowballs yesterday, boring. Today I will iron them and the little hst's for the border and then on to the design wall. This quilt has not held my interest very well. Maybe once I get it put together it will call to me for the quilting part. I really hope so.
    Worked in the yard some yesterday, raking away the winter clutter from all the flower beds. It was so nice yesterday afternoon once the sun began to shine. We are on a downhill slide now weatherwise and are expecting it to get to the low thirties by Monday.
    MIL is having a pacemaker put in Monday. I hope this helps. She is such a positive personality that this illness has changed her so much. She is so tired all the time with her heart only functioning at 20 percent. She is thinking of moving to an assisted living facility. They are sooooo expensive, I just can't imagine. Seems it would make more sense to hire someone to live=in.
    I fell asleep reading in bed last night really early. I must have done more than I thought yesterday, but I need to get moving today and see if I can be productive.
