Karla, congrat on the black belt to your DGS1. Thaat is hard work, he and you should be extremely proud. My DGN1.2. and 3 take Karate. They all have some sort of belts. Every time I hear from their mom they have moved up a belt. But, sadly, this has not helped them. Those are the worst, monster kids I have ever known. My DS1, their grandmother, said they behave around she and DGF or there would be no kinds left! They will no put up with disobedient children.
Spud, I love the colors he picked out. Love those so much. It is such a great design. Pat yourself on the back, you did great. 8-}
Great shark quilt Spud. You did a wonderful job of design.
Yes, great shark quilt Spud.
Thank you all for your kind support! DH is doing better today. I've tried to keep him busy with small projects to keep his mind busy. Sent him off shopping for a while...he loves to shop!
Taking me a long time to pin baste a lap quilt today. I'm about half way done, so maybe by midnight I'll have it finished and ready to quilt. I guess for a while I'll have to go into 'lurk' mode. Keyboarding aggravates these fingers more than I want to deal with. I'll be watching ya'll so behave!
Barbara--I think you should get the "Most Improved Free Motion Quilter" Award! Your WCQ is beautiful! Your hard work and practice is really showing through on your projects!
Spud--the Shark Quilt is wonderful! I know you are so happy with how all the g-kids quilts are turning out. They will love them!
thank you to Judy ,Marie, Sukochi, Max Jacy,Bonita,Frances,Gini and anyone else I missed .for all you kind words. I to am proud of it .I know now there are some errors and things I would do different on the next one,but I'm still very happy with my first attempt. Barbara

gini in north idaho
you did a great job, spud, but i agree. it is much easier to have them pick one focus fabric
i got my quilt finished and all nana's MQ7 pieces cut out. now i am twiddling my thumbs, trying to decide what i wan to work on next. pictures will need to wait until i get home.... i can't find the phone cord to upload pictures.
Karla, Congrats to your young TeaQuonDo Star!! Hard work really does pay off.
Spud, that is an awsome quilt. You've proven your up to any challenge!
Gini, don't be such an over-achiever. Sit back and twiddle those thumbs a little longer - Give the rest of us a chance to catch up! :D
DD and I worked again today. My shoulders are screaming, my neck is stiff and my butt is numb... But I got that darn bone put back together!
Quilters are people who strip so they won't go topless.
Frances, it happens very seldom that I'm speechless but I was so overwhelmed with Barbara's WCQ it happened, believe it or not. : )
Spud, David's Shark Quilt is amazing! Your design is perfect, great job!
Karla, extend my congratulations to Christian and give him a hug from this old Gramma. That's quite an honor he's earned at the age of 13. Not my hug, the Black Belt. Thought I'd clear that up before Frances reads into it. : )
Excuse me...Ladies...If I could have the floor, just for a minute? We are missing one of our own today. Can you guess who???? Our dear THEA has not shown her lovely head here any where today.
Has anyone heard from her, other then here? It is so not like Thea not to say anything...at all. I am praying that all is well there. Anyone care to join me??
Barbara, Congrats and WTG on you WCQ!!! You did super!!!
Spud, the shark quilt is wonderful!
Sukochi, I will join you in the prayers for Thea.
Really liked having that extra hour to sleep in, but I really wanted to go to be an hour ago. LOL Took a little nap, just about 45 min. Got my little quilt washed, so that is ready for DGD1. DH is asleep next to me on the couch. Will have to drag him off to bed soon, as we are back up at 4:45. At least I get to go back to bed. Am feeling TONS better! Meds must be working. Plan on getting this house back in order. So hard as we are still under construction. But will do one room at a time and then I will feel better about quilting. I plan on cleaning the 3 bathrooms and the laundry room tomorrow. Should only take an hour or so, I just need to DO it!
