Mo, I also sent off a block to you Monday I think. Let me know when it arrives!!!
I am amused.
I finally found part of the material for my trees.
Found the mini orange peel templet.(it was under machine probably there whole time).
Received three blocks from different parts of the country in three different shades of yellow.
Which I might add yellow is my favorite color along with blue.
Estelle got hold of some dirt yesterday at mom's house.
Looks like she went face down into flowerpot.
Mom had just watered flowerpot.
Needless to say plant came out, she stuck her face in.
She was quite pleased with herself.
Mom's dog didn't fair as well. She threw dirt at dog.
She had a good old time till Granny, Daddy and Mommy walked back into the living room.
She's in a walker now got going backwards down pretty good.
I'm deconstructing blocks today, to reconstruct them this afternoon.
Along with laundry,dishes,vacuuming, cooking, Strawberry and this is my day off from Estelle.
Sure glad I'm retired.
Oh Mo, Estelle!! How funny!! and poor doggie.. thank goodness for "walker" control! Enjoy making your blocks.. but I am a little confused as to the Yellow blocks???? Not from our Tree Swap I'm thinking... Have fun doing all your chores and sewing..
Got it thank you
Maxine, got your block.
Gretchen got your block too.
The yellow envelopes were given to us by Meima. I love yellow and blue also. Those are the colors of my kitchen along with a splash of red. That is just too funny about Estelle, the dirt and the dog!!! I could see it all playing out in my mind!!! Babies are a handful when they start to get mobile!!!!
I am so glad to be retired too - I just don't know how I accomplished everything BEFORE...and to think that I did swaps also! Guess I was younger with more energy then.
Our blocks will give you a good idea of what we all were thinking of for this swap. Take your time - don't rush. Enjoy them!!! It's no fun if you feel pressured!!! Kim
Put the word out to my customers that I will be taking a year off from quilt repairing.
Am repairing a 1948 Beautiful Bonnet Bonnie now.(Sunbonnet Sue)
It will take at least a year if not more.
All hand stitched.
As for family quilts, taking time off there too.
Going thru the sewing room,moving furniture so me and wheel chair can get comfortable.
Yesterday, my dad turned 79.
Took him and mom out to dinner.
I baby sat Estelle earlier in day.
Today, working around the house.
Going to go read a book and take a nap.
When I wake up then I will sew.
MO now I understand about the yellow,,, envelopes.. too funny on my part.. but glad you received them & you are very welcome.. I'm glad to hear you are going to take some time off for yourself.. You've been really stressed and do need to take it easier.. I agree with Kim,, thank goodness I am retired too.. I just don't seem to be able to get as much done as I used to.. but hey.. I'm not on a time schedule and don't plan on speeding up any time soon & naps are a definite part of my day!! Enjoy your day..
We have a Baby boy!
8 pounds, 6 ounces.
My oldest niece and baby are doing fine.
Dad not so much.
That's the good news!
Now for the other news, not bad just time consuming.
Have to go back next week and have a more in depth MRI done on left knee.
They didn't like what they saw and the machine wasn't acting right either.
So next week will have dye injected and more through MRI done.
Mom is having her neck rotor rooter out again in April.
She's had it done a couple times already.
She's also had a couple different times they put stints in too.
Dad's looking for a different house.
They absolutely hate living in town. So back to the country they are going. Again.
This is his way with dealing with stress. Except the last two times we actually moved them. Go figure.
Yay!!! A big bouncing baby boy!!!! Sorry to hear about your knee though - if its not one thing its another!!! And your poor mom!!! When it rains it pours!!! I hope that your dad waits a bit before making ANOTHER move!!! Hang in there and keep us posted. Big hugs and lots of prayers are headed your way!!!!
About average size baby.
We grow them big in Missouri.
My youngest sisters daughters all three of them weighted in at :
Autumn: 10 pounds 15.5 ounces
Lauren: 13 pounds 13.5 ounces
Madison: 15 pounds 15.5 ounces
Boys are kind on the small size.
My Charlie (Estelle's daddy) weighted 7 pounds 13.5 ounces
Fred: 7 pounds 6.5 ounces.
Then above girls are now lean,willowy ladies.
They all three run marathons,do extreme sports, yoga.
Wow!!!! Those are big babies!!!!!!
Anybody hear from Belfry?
I hope she is okay?
Hope she's not ill.
Just kinda concerned.
Check on the other formula. I will too.
Thanks for asking. I'm here on the site, but now that the swap is basically over am just reading this thread. I'll post when I get the blocks.
Glad you're OK Belfry!!! I was hoping that you weren't down sick with the flu!!!!
Thanks, Kim. Nope did that almost a month ago.
Woohoo! Belfry's "in the House" & not sick .. thank goodness.. that flu is mean.. my husband & I both had light cases of it and were still whiney.. Belfry how is your Aloha top coming??
