Sorry I've been missing. As you can see, it's 5am for me, and I'm up!! My 2ed night with no sleep. Everything is just off for me. I've been busy going to the dentist, gastroenterologist. Knitting & today a hair cut.
The dentist says I need to go back 2 little things & a new cap, the gastro said I must have a colonoscopy in Dec. She didn't give me too much info on diverticulitis. I guess it's a learn as I go thing.
My sister could use some prayer. She lost her new job. They kept putting her as the hostess where she didn't earn enough money. One of her coworkers told her because of her age(60). Thank you.
I'm off to read what you all have been up to.
Love & Prayers..............Kathy

Well I have been busy on my SS gift. Working hard on it. Sew should have it ready by delivery. I am sure I will be sending like last day for sure.
Lil man stayed the night wed. Rain and dark driving doesnt suit me. I almost had accident wed. newly paved road pulled my car to edge and I was all over the road. Thank the Lord no other cars on road. Would have been bad. Lil man was in back seat and he was saying "woa woa"
TGIF I am wore out busy busy this week. but all is good.
Happy stitching all

Lyn will be leaving on Saturday to go back by her parents, so today I will be sandwiching my king size quilt, so she can help. I appreciate the help of friends for that big job.
Yesterday, I cut all the batting for my four quilting projects. Still have a big piece left on the bolt. That will be enough to do small quilt or several table toppers.
Well, enough about me. I enjoy reading about all of you.

Several times I have posted messages and they disappear. I make sure to press submit but I guess that happens. I have mailed off my Secret Santa package. Now is the fun part. Waiting. Today we are going to see the new movie Midway. We enjoy seeing movies like this on the big screen. I hope everyone has a wonderful day.

The kids who have bought grandma's house haven't moved in yet. they are replacing the roof. In the meantime I have been collecting any mail. I have their keys and other paperwork. I texted them to let them know I think they might need their mail and I could drop it off. they left a message apologizing for the inconvenience and they would get the mail on Saturday. This is after the reminder last week for them to transfer the electric bill account into their name. I'm starting to feel like a nag. I so don't want to be that neighbor.
Valerie, hope your meeting went well yesterday. the workplace sure has changed over the years. It's really sad.
Maryz, love your pot holder idea. hope the massage was wonderful. i'm not going to fussy cut tumbler blocks. The thing that sold me on tumblers was seeing Suzettes quilt she did some time ago. so pretty.
Kathy, looks like you are covered from end to end with a hair cut and a colonoscopy. Prayers for your sister.
Izzy, I am also looking for a day that I can wrap my SS package. Seems I get a day and it gets filled. glad you made it home with the rain. I hate driving in the dark.
Velda, sounds like a big job with that quilt top. nice that Lyn will be there to help.
Becca, hope DH does take you out for a meal, after all it would be great payment for a trip to the doctor.
Suzette, I haven't had any posts disappear and don't know why it happens. I think, because of you, not my next quilt but the one after that will be paper pieced. you are a trend setter.
Tomorrow is my quilt club meeting. then my goal is to either shop or come home afterwards.
Hope you girls have a groovy day,

With the extreme cold due to hit yesterday, Joe got pellet stove reinstalled in living room where it was. We were trying to get kitchen done to move it, but with cold hitting early, we put it back where it was & will move it in spring. Now things are nice & cozy warm.
Today is take it easy. Tomorrow we need to be in the city at 6 am. We are volunteering at a 5k run to benefit veterans locally...I see nap time when we get home.
Will check in Sunday

KATHY - Like everyone said, diet can manage your diverticulitis. Have you been diagnosed or is the colonoscopy to do that? The prep is the worst part of that test, but at least now it's not nearly as bad as it used to be. Wishing you - and your sister - well. I hope she finds a job soon.
BECCA - prayers for Brodee and his parents today!
CHRISS - your days are jam-packed! I'm not into fussy cutting much either. Imagine all the different fabrics it would take to do an I Spy with tumblers! But for the right kid, I'd do it. What's happening at Quilt Club tomorrow? I hope fun things. Do you work on projects or just 'meet' and talk about projects? Sorry the new kids on the block don't seem to be getting their stuff together. But they will. But if you want to talk about neighbors, Have I got a story for you . . . . .
VELDA - Have you checked at LQS's in your area to see if they have LA's that you can rent time on? I can't imagine doing a king on a regular sewing machine. I know there's at least one LQS in Austin that has a rentable LA.
LYN - special thoughts go with you as you fly home tomorrow.
DIANE - Blessing you and all your cohorts for the good work you do - and also for the service men and women who are receiving these quilts.
FLO - how goes the dust battle? Glad you are warm and toasty again.
SUZETTE - enjoy the movie!
IZZY - that was a close call! Glad you and your Sweet William are OK. Not much is worth getting me out on the roads on a dark, rainy night.
TERESA - I checked out the November lotto. It looks complicated, but it really wasn't. So I made four and mailed them off to you. But it's worth noting that these UNFINISHED blocks square to 12" and not our usual 12-1/2". This threw me off for a bit.
Today I'm going to frame my wool Santa that I received as a teaser from my last year's SS (Thank you again, Kathy!). I never got to it last year but now it's all finished but framing. Then a few more pairs of pot holders to give as Christmas gifts. Plus, I've been told it's going to be another leaf-raking/blowing day here. Usually the leaves are all down before Halloween, but this year, they are really hanging on and putting on a show of color unusual for our area.
Have a Fab Friday!
