We arrived yesterday(Monday) afternoon. Set up the Motorhome in the rain. Heading out now to put the boat in the water, before the rain starts again.
I worked on a little doll quilt on the way up, that was fun. It has 60 little heart appliques, so I had a lot of cutting to do.
I'll try to catch up on what every one here has been up to, the last few days.

Lois, we just had the Omaha Quilt Show - it was fantastic! So many talented quilters here, I feel blessed to live here.
Suzette, that's so funny about the dog - I have to pull quilts down each night for our Boyz to lay on, they look offended if I don't!
Dorothy, have fun with the scrappy quilt! I don't do scrappy very well - I overthink the plumbing
Kathy, I hope the day goes by quickly - enjoy that little one.
girl, great news for DH! These storms have been something, but we've been lucky with no tornadoes.
Cissy, what a nice thing to do! Anytime I need an easy, can't miss pattern I turn to my 25 Years and Still Stripping book - EL hasn't let me down yet!
Chriss, have a great day at work!
cindyg, that's great advice about doing something a bit harder.
*T* - it must be such a hardship, going to QIAD all day.... LOL! I won't be jealous, I won't be jealous...
Mary, I need a prod to get the uglies done.
WS, brag away! What a great job he's done, it'll be such a boost for him to see what he can accomplish.
I have to re-mark a small part of the wholecloth I'm working on; one little needle prick was all it took to reek havoc (memo to self; a little blood spot will wash out, along with the water-soluble marks!) Luckily, I'm just basting it right now. I made myself feel better by getting my room reservations for Des Moines in October, tho! Yesterday was just recovering from the weekend - we went to the Omaha Quilt Show on Saturday and had our good friend (with her 4 month old Airedale puppy), DD and her BF all over for a cookout - great fun, but tiring. That little pup wore my 200 lbs of Boyz out - it was just hilarious!
Have a great day, everyone!!

I had a call from a girl friend and we're meeting for Chinese...This gal is well into her 50s,looks like she's 20, weighs about 100 lbs. soaking wet and is going to the gym before lunch...Me, I'm over weight, old and I'm going straight to lunch....And then while I'm out, I might as well do some shopping...Hate to waste a trip.....
So that's my exciting day...Hopefully I will get some sewing done when I get home....
Enjoy the rest of the day, everyone.....

Been up for a while and got most of the uglies done for the day - DGS is a great help and we work good together as a team. Worked on my swap blocks yesterday and should have them done by the beginning of the week - whoo-hoo!!
WeSig- Yes us Grandma's know about bragging!!! Congrats to your sweet GS on that accomplishment - There are some great Spec Ed teachers out there - my niece for one - She was in Spec. Ed as a child and worked very hard to get her degree and she knew that Spec. Ed was where she wanted to teach - the kids all love her and she relates to them very well - having been there!!
T - Awhile ago you posted about when the new Orion's Star book is going to be available for pre-order? Help - when - I swear that I have "Part-timers memory loss disease" and can't remember when it is.
Kyna (DD) had a storm the other night that flooded the Condo complex where they live - only a little bit of water got into their basement - Her home is on the high end of the buildings too!! Yesterday three different storms came through and dropped large quarter size hail again - No water in the basement - thank goodness!!
Off to my sewing machine as I am embroidering some bath towels and making toddler bibs out of hand towels for my littlest DGS. I have some cute boy embroidery designs to add to the bibs.
Have a great day

I placed another order with QIAD yesterday...can't seem to get through a month without needing something! The UGRR wallhanging is ready to piece together when I realized that I don't have the picture of the label in my book! So....I ordered the label kit. Plus, some other stuff and the disappearing nine-patch pattern of El's.
Went grocery shopping yesterday and that did me in for the day! We had a really good dinner, though. I had bought some corn on the cob and DH suggested BLT's. Also, bought some strawberries, so I fixed them and we had strawberries over a lemon pound cake. It was all so yummy and was a perfect dinner! DGS helped, he helped me pick the first of our lettice from my flower bed. Then he washed it. DS2 fried two lbs. of bacon (bless him!!).

Jana--I bet your niece is exceptional as a Special Educator. I had the privilege of being a mentor for a wonderful young lady who also went through Special Education (Resource Program for dyslexia). She got her BA in Communicative Disorders and worked hard to get accepted to graduate school in Speech Pathology, no easy task it is a competitive field. Well she just completed her Masters and I now have the pleasure of calling her a colleague. she is an incredible clinician...because she has empathy but also knows how to push her students to excel without creating a feeling of failure. Yes she relies on spell check but don't we all
Well my next group of little ones just arrived and I have a fun therapy session planned...their last one until school starts again in August.
more later and I will read all of the posts I will have time after school and before my guild meeting. I am taking a quilt to show and tell. I bumped a photo of it unfinished to the first page of the photos last night to show a friend.
Ok kids have signed their "time cards" ta ta

It is hot and muggy here in Louisville, went to have my oil change earlier and felt like I was walking in a sauna!! yuck but it's lots better than snow and ice storms. I'll take this anyday,.
Jnana I'd like to see pics of your bibs if you don't mind. Always looking for cute lil boy stuff to embroider. Where did you find your bib pattern? That's a good idea. Do you have fav places to buy your designs from?
Chriss have a good day at work, have fun working on your blocks tonight.
Suzette, hope your dog enjoys his quilt. I have a friend who just had to put her dog to sleep and the dog used to lay on every quilt she made.
Chrissy1 how about a nine patch? They always turn out nice and don't require alot of thinking?
Irishsgram, hope you enjoy your lunch with your friend. Too funny about your cat not wanting to get "up" this morning.
I have to do some ugly stuff today, I do try my hardest to avoid it but sometimes you just have to suck up and do it!
Hope everyone has a good afternoon,
