Okay...my son who lives in town was supposed to come over yesterday for Mother's Day. We were BBQing steaks. He had to work at 5 pm and TEXTED me that he didn't want to rush our visit so could he come today since he's off all day. I said sure and let the steaks marinate until today. Have I heard from him? No. Texted him and called him. Message said the number couldn't be accessed at this time. 

Hubby said maybe he got lucky. I said, "I gave him life." He said maybe it's a supermodel that will support him. I repeated, "I GAVE HIM LIFE."

I went through a miserably hot summer pregnant with him without AC because it was broken. I gave birth to him 5 months later during a blizzard. One lousy day a year and he cannot make it! 

Oh well...another thing to make him feel guilty about. lol

You  are right-- so right buthe will probably just put off the inevitable for even longer.  Don't let it eat you up.  When he finally does arise,  just say Oh, didn't you come over then.  It must have been a dream then.  I thought you were here and brought me a beautiful bouquet of roses.  Now I am disappointed.  LOL   Ginny

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

congrats on the new machine Liz.  I have that machine too.  I love mine.  Even though I have had it for a while, I am still learning new things about it.

Karla, prayers going your way for you MIL.

Liz, congratulations on the new machine. I know you will enjoy it very much.

Mary, I know what you're saying about your ungrateful son!!! I didn't hear a word from my oldest daughter, and she is the one that usually visits me on Mother's Day. I had a pc from my youngest daughter, and my son and dil came out to visit for a while. Otherwise, I spent the day alone. Poor,poor me!!! I still haven't heard from the oldest.

Marie just make sure you number your stitches with what is on your machine and the mode you have them in, otherwise you will spent all your time hunting them down.  Just take your time and have fun. Barbara

Liz, enjoy your new machine!  Whenever a friend asks what sewing machine to buy, I share all the good comments I hear about the Janome 6600 or 7700.  I think you made a good purchase!

Having a good time at our small retreat close to home.  Sixteen gals are sharing this house...

Do you see the garage doors in that picture?  Here is a view inside the garage.  Where are the doors?  ...behind a sheetrock wall.  The room is well lit and there is ample room for each quilter.

This was taken in the "great room" (kitchen, dining, living room).  You can see where we've set up ironing stations and cutting boards.  We are taking turns preparing meals in teams.

This is a typical bedroom.  There are three on the main floor and five in the lower level.  We share three bathrooms.

Myrna finished the first quilt!  (It helps that only the binding was left to do.)  This one is paper pieced.

 

Dee finished the second quilt!  It's a scrappy.

Janet showed off "Strawberry Shortcake" which is absolutely darling, but everyone was more intrigued with the textured minky back than they were with her piecing.

 

Patti is understandably proud of her Grandmother's Flower Garden which she has been hand-piecing over several years.  She's now starting the hand quilting.

And what am I up to?  I'm cutting out 99 apple cores from bright juvenile prints for a twin-sized quilt I making for a local church mission - my first charity quilt.

My friend Terri is here, and she is working on MQ 6.  I posted her picture in that discussion thread.

I'm wondering if the elves will be making an appearance tonight.  This might not be the right crowd.  They'd be smart to start slowly....
