Thanks Angele!  I love it and can't wait to get back to it, but we have DGS3 here for a couple days so don't think much will be done till he goes back home.  He is only 1 so is into everything.  

Today I got to snuggle w/DGS3.  He didn't want to take his nap in the pack and play so I laid him down with me on the couch and he took a 45 minute nap!  Was sooooooooooooooo adorable!  I rocked him to sleep before I put him down for the night..  At least he went back to sleep.  I took my shower while he settled down, I have trouble not going back in there and rocking him more!  He is our last grandchild, so I tend to spoil him.  Get him all day tomorrow, will return him on Wednesday.  DD said she is getting a lot of cleaning and packing done, she hopes to move this spring/summer.

Well, time for a little ice cream! We get the winds tomorrow, so glad I don't have to go anywhere!

You all can keep those winds to yourselves!  It's Market Day at the quilt guild meeting tomorrow, and I don't want wind and/or snow to make either our vendors or our members uncomfortable out on the roads.

If I could keep them away from u I would Nancy!!!   It sounds awful out there!  So blessed to be able to stay home!

DGS3 woke at 6:30   thankfully I was up.   He seems lost without his sisters.  I try to play with him but his attention span is very short of course.  Prayingnhebtakes a nap without me today.  Lunch will be early and so will naptime!  He is a good boy.  Found his coat and shoes and thought we should go somewhere, but when I told him no, he was not happy!  When he cries, he screws up his face and I just have to laugh, which he doesn't seem to appreciate!  :-)

Everyone have a great day!

Hey zoetc49

I also have an Aussie.  She is a blue healer, so she is short haired, but she has a LOT of ambition. Kind of short on the patience and I swear she can tell time.  She wakes me up an 10am or finds me for her breakfast.  She and the other rescue dog, a beagle, play hard in the morning.  She hits 2pm on the mark almost every day.  That is walk time.  At first she wouldn't walk without her "sister" but when she realized her sister doesn't like the short walks I take, they wait for my daughter to hike with them in the evening.  I have owned a number of dogs, but none that knows the clock and only gives me time to make a potty run, before she all but drags me out of the house.  She did not take my foot being bandaged well at all today.  She smelled it and tried to bite it off.  She wanted her walk.

I have never known anyone who has owned one before.

Patricia4,

Right hander with left elbow tendonitis. I had it a few years back.  No idea if it has to do with rulers or not.  I know that I had a cortisone shot and it worked for about 10 years.  It certainly IS one of the most significant pains I have ever felt.  I did have to stop all activity for about 10 days though.  Even if it is from the overuse of the ruler, all you have to do is let it calm back down and then you can go on with quilting abuse.

Good Morning! It's a brand new day! The sun is shining. Birds are singing.  And QCA is  up and running. 

I've spent the last couple of days trying to select batiks for a new star quilt but every time I pull out a bin of fabric, Sprout goes into over-drive. He climbs right into the bin and starts rummaging through it, screeching his delight when he finds a pretty he especially likes, and then takes off running through the house with it, only to return and repeat the whole process a few moments later. My stash is scattered far and wide.  I suppose I should be happy that he loves my fabrics, and he won't hurt them with his antics, but I confess, that I am getting mighty tired of having to track down his treasures, refold and restore them to their place in my stash, only to have to do it all over again the second I turn my back.  And so far everything I've found for the above mentioned star has gone missing before I could compare it to the other selections I've made.  If I ever do get my fabrics together, cutting them will be difficult.  He's decided that the rotary cutter looks interesting. I've had to hide it so many times that now I'm not sure where I put it! 

On a different note, we've started potty training this week. He's already had two successes so we're off to a good start. i know better then to think it's gonna go so smoothly for the duration, but I am enjoying these little triumphs when they happen.

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

I'm having quiet do nothing but relax day today after two days shoving furniture this way and that to the point that DH accepted the floorplan.  DH had car troubles yesterday and his car is in the shop today. I'm gonna be making chili for dinner .  I found a pattern and trying to figure part of it out I don't know if it was made with a kite shape but I know there has to be a technical name for it.  It reminds me of spirograph that i used as a child.  I'll post a question.

regular busy day for me, but snow was not in my plans.  If I get lucky I'll be able to sew tonight.

We were contacted by a lovely couple we met in Mexico this December.  And wouldn't you know they actually kept up the contact. I didn't have my phone or a pen for that matter so I left the contact up to them. So they are coming for the weekend.  How often does that happen?  

The unfortunate part is I was going to use this weekend to quilt a couple of quilts so I would have something to do after my surgery. I might still get one done. We'll see. 

And I have to clean my house. I loaded a quilt last night a dragged thread, batting bits and snips of fabric all over!!

Don't fuss Vivian. They're coming to see you, not inspect your house.

I just looked at this month's poll.  REALLY?!  So I've looked back at the quilts I've made over the years for a clue.  There isn't one color I lean to, but a colorway usually picked by the person the quilt was made for or scraps.

Guess I'm not participating in that poll.  I do love pastels tho.

And last months poll wouldn't let me choose an age group, but said I voted for the 4 year old age group.  I'm not even sure I even knew what a quilt was at that age!  QCA has gotten to be a laugh a minute.

 

 A bed without a quilt is like a sky without stars.

Deep in my heart I know people don't come to inspect my house. Well, except for a few family members but they really don't count. I still like to get the dust bunnies put to bed and out from under the bed and the thread snippets vacuumed up. Also, I was drinking coffee in my favourite spot while looking at a quilt site and put my full cup down on thin air. Not for long though,  my goodness it sure can spread.  So I had to move the sofa, coffee table and recliner to clean it up and if I'm going to do that I may as well scrub the laminate and carry on through the house. It looks so good. Yea me!!
