Sharon, the bugs are probably aphids... lady bugs eat aphids but don't make our mistake.. we bought lady bugs at home depot thinking they would be in aphid heaven... the next day the lady bugs flew away..... have you looked at QIAD? last time I checked the star across America book was around $18..if that doesn't work there is always Amazon.... and WeSig puts on such a fun sew along... I just think the world of her.... but don't tell ok?
Kathy, sorry you have to work on Monday... I really can't complain.. I had friday and monday off so it was two short weeks... only two more days and I get a weekend.
Joanne, I like jelly beans toooooo... and I think I need to add borders to my blocks to square them up... ugh.... I wish they would just come out like they are supposed to but I guess I need more practice...
Tul, I want to see the Orion star pattern too....
Irishgram, I love when someone mentions Aldi's... we don't have them out here but it reminds me of taking Jerry's grandma shopping in Illinois... good memories...
well, Jerry has the grill started, it looks like hamburgers for us... he was just telling me how fresh the buns were and that they had no mold... always a plus in a bun...
I will hit the shower

Only a little rain today, but the day is not over. We lost power for about 2 hours last night. It was at 11 pm so that wasn't to bad, just go to bed. Todd had to stay up to reset the breakers in the fish tanks and the Koi pond.
The Connerstones of My Life quilt is moving fast tomorrow I'm at my last round of half strips and then it start on lattice strips. That is good for my mind is two quilts down the road.
"T" I'm on FaceBook too. Lots of fun.
Chriss hope you had a easy day at work today. Only have two more days to go.
Lori good to hear that you are feeling better.
Has anyone heard how other Dorothy is doing today?
Everyone have a good evening.

Started a quilt Sunday and pin basted it today. I was going to try and quilt it tonight, but I am too beat.
I am having so much trouble w/ my knee that just walking wears me out.
Since DH is visiting his CA daughter, I took the top out to a LQS so I could pin baste while sitting down.
Tomorrow is the last day for the students and Friday is the last one for me. I know I'm not too old for this, but the other older ones in the building "help" their hair color. Since I'm the only one gray, the kids think I'm ancient.
This Bonzo is going to bed.
PS - Since this was a quilt for a teacher, I purchased some of the Debbie Mumm fabrics that had school tools at Joanne's for sashing.
It may be the worst fabric I ever bought. It really ravels. Just a heads up before you buy.

Well I did get out to the Quilter's Bee, the new lqs. It's a big store. They have a lot of room to fill up. I'm sure they will in time. I did buy some fabric and a book. As soon as the fabric is washed, I will start cutting it for shashing. TTFN
