I am so glad you are still with us Chicagosinger. What a scary ordeal. Will be praying for you.
CC, glad you got to see your un-Dad, and sounds like a good visit for him too. and what a nice unexpected gift from you MIL.
Thanks to all for your comments on my precious Tyler.
Nancy, sorry for your friends loss of her DD. My prayers will be with her and family and friends. Prayers going up for you and Hubby and hope everything went well yesterday.
CC, sounds like Sprout made his Papa happy. Great memory for Papa to hold onto. Chalk one up to MIL, what a nice and thoughtful thing for her to do.
Chicagosinger, so sorry you went through that, prayers going up for your continued recovery. God Bless you. (((((HUGS)))))
Finally got my mq8 sandwiched. While pinning I wondered for the first time if there is a right way to pin itt? I start at one corner and goback and forth tial bottom should i be pinning center vertical then center horizontal then each quarter section. Just wondere how others do theirs.
I also had to run to neighbors 74 yrs old she had fallen from being on step ladder while balancing holding top of metal shelf in her basement to change a water filter, she fell backward and hit her double metal sink below her neck thank god she had a stack of towels hanging over edge. She has multiple schlerosis and shouldn't be up on any ladder in my oppinion. She is bruised but seems ok. I told her no more working overhead to make call someone for help first but she is very independant. I'm just glad she is still around to talk to.
Running errands and puttzing with sewing room.
Quilting My Rainbow
I start in middle then work my way out and around. Just how I was taught in the many quilting books I read over and over again.
Praying for a quick and complete recovery.

Goodness, I think you should check on her again several times over the next day or two to be sure there are no delayed effects. That sounds scary!
On the banks of the Mississippi River in north central Minnesota (Brainerd lakes area)
chicagosinger:I haven't been here for awhile because I had a severe heart attack back towards the end of February.
Glad to have you back! Take care of yourself!
Prayers for you chicagosinger for a speedy and quick recovery. Glad to see you back.
Hope you can continue on the path to recovery. Linda can correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe the magazine she referred to is a free magazine, with no costs at all attached. Prayers are headed your way.
Chicagosinger, Oh my! So glad you are back home and on the road to recovery! Will be keeping you in my prayers.
IS life's never dull round you is it? Hope your neighbour is ok.
Marie your little man is gorgeous.
Chicago hope you continue to improve.
CC glad your Un Dad had the strength to play with Sprout,
Sorry that's all I can remember ( brain freeze or a Craft moment ( Can't remember a flipping thing!!)).
The antibiotics seem to have kicked in and I must admit I do feel better still coughing a bit but nowhere near as bad as I was.
Glad the weekend has arrived. Our Rugby league team has an important cup match tomorrow so we will go to that after lunch.
Sunday will relax and hopefully get some of the mountain of washing done and dried. The beautiful weather of last weekend has gone again! I think it is very chilly today and am thinking about putting the heating on as my hands are frozen.
Big hugs to everyone xxx
Just a day for housework I guess as this mother is having her daughters and families over for a Mother's Day Bar-B-Q. So far I have washed the throw rugs and vacuumed. Still need to finish cleaning up my sewing area (just the stuff that little Logan can reach and pull down), plan the menu for Sunday and go grocery shopping. Finished my 3rd purse before DH (who's not such a dear this morning) got up. Finagled him into doing the dusting, which he did, but it was a half-assed job in just one room. Oh well, at least that is one room I won't have to do, sort of.
Welcome home, Chicago. I'm glad you are still with us.
Thanks for the prayers for Un-Dad, everybody. I'm sure he is grateful,a s am I.
Yes, Mil really suprised me with the quilt top. The last I had heard of it she'd sent it, along with the last row of blocks and sashing off to my Sister IN LAW so that she could add her handywork to the multi-generational effort. She never got around to it and Mom was fretting that she'd never see it again.
It was a suprise to see that she had finally gotten it back, and finished piecing the last row herself before passing it on to me. She says that she can think of nothing greater then if DD and I were to quilt it. Given the age of the blocks, Sadly, my hand quilting skills are nonexistant. And I honestly do not feel that the blocks are actually strong enough to hold up to it.They are in remarkable shape after 130 years... but... I'm guessing that Great Grandma was a little girl just learning to sew when they were made - which would explain why some of the blocks are made by her mother and some by her. (I'll have to look at the stitching and see if I can tell which was which.)
Quilters are people who strip so they won't go topless.
