Morning and in the east coast it is almost afternoon.

Have the sheets on the line along with the towels. Hope no little storm, in Fl. you never know when one can pop up.

Chriss - very happy that last night turned out so well. Did you save me some cake? Have fun with GD.

Lois - what is a nuclar stress test? Never heard of that.

Kathy - Hope you are feeling better.

1quiltinnana - You are going to have a great time.

Well I'm off to the LQS here to find 30's reproduction fabric, the last Sat. they have a sale. I have the quilt for GS4 done except put on the boarders. Will take a pic and post, I would wait till it was back from the LAQ, she has one she is doing for me right now so it will be a few weeks before I send this one. Need to stop at Home Depot and pick up a couple of plants, going to look and see if they have pineapple sage. If they do will get some.

Everyone have a great day.

sliding glass door....wonderful!!

Pineapple sage at Home Depot?? Mine did not have any. I am
going to my local herb farm..that is always a fun trip.

Good Morning, Friends!
Gorgeous wx here in the Pacific Northwest all this week! We're lovin' it!

Well, all the "ugly" talk here this week has finally convinced me that my windows really do need washing. So I've decided that if I do just one room of windows a day it might not kill me. So I've begun. The good news is that when we came home from our trip one window was cracked so I don't need to wash that one as it has to be replaced! the bad news, - it's a big kitchen garden window. $$$$

1quiltinnana - Congratulations on your new 5-W!! We love ours, now 8 years old. What kind did you get? Slides? Size? Color? Is this just a new rig for you or are you new to RV'ing? You will have so much fun! But do share the details. Looks like many of us are very interested.

Chriss - glad you got cake! That's the best part of graduations! That and the cool tassels!

Lyn, I know you're coming down off your mountain "fer supplies". Where are you going? I have two sisters living in Longmont and a brother who is visiting there now. My older sis runs the campground at the Fairgrounds in Longmont. Are staying in your MH in Estes?

Everybody else, make your day, whatever you're doing (even if it's windows!) special.

fabricgirl, hope your DSIL does well with her stress test.

Hello...tea break time!!

It does not happen often but today I can smell the ocean..I love that smell. I am a mile from the water. On most nights I can hear the roar
of the waves.

I put a bird house up on my shed..there are 3 babies in there...
Did you know they are like human babies and wake/cry during the night.
Their day seem to start about 4am....LOL

Carolyn...sounds like you have a busy but great day planned, reworking your sewing room. 288 half sqs and 72-4 patches good luck!!
What quilt are you making??

Maryz...Best of luck with your windows. I am 13 done and 9 more to go.
Next house fewer windows..LOL!

I hope all of you are blessed today!!kathy

Hi all well I don't know what exactly they are useing it for but she was haveing troubel with dizzyness and her leggs were like cement she also got diffrent blood pressure pills so it's like a waiting game this test is where they shoot dye into you and sometimes you go on a tredmill and they take pictures of you heart but she also gets motion sickness so they did a diffrent method without the tredmill used a chair that moves so I hope that your not to confused .

we went to friendleys for lunch had coffee and chatted a while then we went back to her house and now Im home I didn't think she was up for shopping so we didn't mention it to her.

now im in the sewing room bbl.

well guess what I finally did... made my DGD that dress... it took quite a while but I did it all today... ok, it isn't much but I have never sewn clothes before....I wasn't sure about the arms so I put pre-made packaged binding around them... and why do you have to put facing around the collar.? I think I will do the binding thing all around next time... here is a picture... please oooh and aaaawww... I think I could use a lesson in pattern reading because I don't know some of the terms but it was fun


1quiltinnana, how exciting, I hope you have many safe trips.

Kathy... my ancestors came over from Flushing Long Island... is that anywhere near you?

Q7... I also cleaned my sewing room today... I had too much junk in there... I must admit it looks ok in there now...

Irishgram.. your lot not getting cleared by itself reminds me of the story about the son who was in prision and the dad wrote him a letter telling the son that he didn't know how he was going to plow the field with him in prision... the son wrote back saying dont worry about the field because that is where I hid the money I stole.... the dad wrote the son after about a week and told him not to worry about the field that some nice FBI men had dug it all up....lol... probably doesn't help you get your lot cleared does it?

Dorothy, Yes, I did save you some cake... infact it went out in today's mail... mmmmmm chocolate...lol..

Carolyn... are you saying you won't be here this weekend???lol... hope you get evreything done you want to get done.

well, I am going to go check out the rest of the forum...

Just got back from spending the late afternoon with CindyB. We did a little shopping, had some dindin and sat and gabbed for a couple of hours. I don't know about her, but I'll be up all night because we drank so much coffee. LOL

As usual, I forgot my camera, but she remembered hers, so something may be posted later.

I'm going to change clothes and hit the sewing room.

bbl - maybe

Good Evening,

I have just finished my 2ed day of eating healthy. One meal at a time.

Chriss..Flushing(don't you think that is a strange name??)is right next to NYC...a long way from me. Where Long Island splits near the end...Go stright down and I am near there. It is beautiful here. Except all the extra people in the summer!
OOOOHHHH/AAAAWWWW!! The dress is so sweet. Is it for something special? Most of the clothing I have made have the interfacing around the arm holes and necks. Clothing is like quilting what ever technique
works for you...Good Job
