CC I don't think you are being petty at all.  I would speak up if I were you.  Say something like I'm glad you liked my idea and ran with it, thank you and give her a sweet smile.  OOPS now I'm being catty, sorry.  Just rubs me the wrong way when something like that happens.

CC, were you an author in a former life?   I love reading about your days,  Have you thought about saving them as a kind of journal for Sprout?    When my daughter was pregnant with her son we lived 400 miles apart and she emailed me every day telling me about her day and how she felt and what her "what to expect when you're expecting" said.   I printed and saved them all for her to give him when he's much older.  Probably something she should re-read as he enters the teenage years and she's wondering where her sweet son went.  LOL

I have been having a great staycation with DH.  Tuesday and Wednesday while Dh did projects on the car, I was busy working on the top for SIL's quilt for Christmas.  I got the middle section of the quilt done, all 22 rows of 17 hour glass blocks.

Today we took a little trip to Sarasota so that I could go to Cotton Patch Quilt Shop to find backing fabric.  I did not find any fabric that I wanted there but did buy the batting there.  So next it was back to Dunedin to my favorite shop, Rainbows End.  I found the backing fabric there and while I would have loved to buy more fabric, I only bought the backing fabric and thread for this project.

After that DH took us to Wendy's for lunch and then it was off to home.  Once at home I finished pressing the middle section of the quilt.  Here is a picture of the middle section

I did get one of the boarders cut and sewn on but haven't taken a picute of that.  Tomorrow I hope to get the boarders on and the backing pieced.  The backing may not get pieced all the way depending on how long errands take and DH has a race tomorrow night and we will have to leave fairly early due to traffic and parking.

This is partly what I'm up to today during my lunch break.  I'm also working on my MQ5.

So Marie,

what exactly were you doing, watching videos, exercising, or did you go to a strip joint? Enquiring minds would like to know. LOL.

Cool commercial.

I am deciding if it is time to buy a new iron and looking for recommendations.  The iron I have is incontinent and spitting at me now.  Anyone have any suggestions?

I will NOT take tha tthing with me to retreats.  It would take up space that fabric needs to go in.  I promise not to stop breathing long enough to need a 911 call.  All is well. About the lack of room, I will suck in my stomach and try to make myself as small as possible. I have decided on the project I want to work on during the retreat. will get all the fabric cut and labeled. That way there won't be a bunch of fabric taking up space from others.  I have decided it would  take up less room if we just don't bring clothes.  DH veteod that idea.  He said it maight scare the rest of you,  right into the ocean!! No drowning on the trip, please. ; 0

Heck, this brings up a memory from way back when the kids were in grade school and "Mother's Club" was going to a male strip joint.  Not that I was or am a prude but I decided not to go for fear my little ones would think I was some kind of pervert if they found out.  Boy am I sorry now!  At least I got to go to this virtual strip club, so shoot me!  LOL  The things we do or don't do for the sake of our kids.  ; [[

I think one of my gentleman hiker friends had the solution to the problem of how many clothes you can take and still fit fabric in on retreats, Ladies. Hikers like to keep thier packs light so they pack as little as possible . He says they way they do it is to only change underwear every other day. Then Jim changes with Ralph and Ralph changes with Pete, etc...

Quilters are people who strip so they won't go topless.

Got an update on our tiny great-grandson.  He is very lucky to be OK.  Megan's going into labor 6 weeks early was a miracle.  His heartrate started to slow down and they considered a caesarian, but she was able to push him out quickly.  They discovered that his umbilical cord was tied in a FULL KNOT and was wrapped around his neck TWICE!!!  If she had gone nearer to full term, he may have suffered brain damage.  The knot could have been pinched and the double wrap could have caused real problems.  As it is, he seems to be fine.  He is off oxygen and digesting his food as he should.  They have him on a feeding tube and have pumped his stomach a while after feeding him to see if he is digesting his food.  Everything seems fine!  My daughter says he must have been jumping rope in there!!!  Have never heard of something like this before --- a FULL KNOT!  I think he is an acrobatic swimmer!

Here is a picture of tiny Megan and tinier Lincoln. I don't think she is even 5' tall. 

Daddy Nick holding Lincoln for 1st time. How small his tiny leg is!  Wish I could hold him too, but he is so far away in Germany.  Our military hospitals take good care of them over there.

Marsha, thank God she went into labor early.  He will make strides now and be on his way home soon. "All good things come in small packages" my mother used to say to me.
