Hello all!  Hotter than hot outside!  We're supposed to reach 103 with humidity.  I was outside this morning mowing the lawn, pulling weeds out by the road, and weed eating.  Managed to do a couple loads while I was out working on yard.  I got one hung out and the other I put in the dryer.

Managed to get some 3.5 inch square 9 patches for that Choose Your Own Adventure quilt along.

I was at Stitcher's Garden class all day yesterday till 2:30 pm when I finished all 6 little blocks with bobbin work.  Some how I love socializing and see what everyone else's blocks look like, but I have to admit since you are there for a limited time, you feel like it's crunch time all the time.  I was sad that my Bernina 830 was still not ready, so I had to drag my little 350 machine and use that one.

Happy Birthday Keagan!  Where are his little toes!  We always get little toes pictures.

So happy you have a new machine to sew with Thel!  Always nice to learn new machines and stitches.

Comment by Kathleen Kingsbury yesterday

That's amazing the quilt shop lady was able to track down your fabric, Froggie. Good that you found some.

Great news you were able to hit a golf ball, Rita! Yum on the homemade jams too.

Happy Birthday Kegan!! You are one handsome boy!  I don't know what QIAD is either, Thel. Probably good that I don't !!

Maybe everyone is encountering electrical storms and is staying away from here.

In addition to many others, I have been wondering about Lynne. Has she come home from her big vacation yet? Been a while since she's popped in too I think.

Comment by Thel in Mid-MO yesterday

I have a friend who has four sibling dogs that have the double coat (I forget what breed) and wow does she have furr everywhere. No double coats here, thank goodness.

Enjoy the rest of your day Kim.

Comment by Thel in Mid-MO yesterday

Good afternoon.  Between trying to accomplish some things and being without internet due to another storm,  I'm finally here to see what's happening.    The rain has definitely cleared the air here too Mary.  It's 73° and sunny now.  What a beautiful day it's turned into.  

Yes, a little embroidery, enough to hopefully create some nice labels.  Basic but functional.  

Darn on that fabric Froggie.  Sounds like you've come up with a good plan.  I bet it'll look great too.    NEVERMIND,  I see you found 'the right stuff'.  I crack me up.  

I don't know what QIAD is?  Am I a dunce?   Your son sure does keep you well supplied with veggies Barbara.  Enjoy all the prep. 

Woohoo Rita is golfing.  Make sure to take it real slow.  Emmmm your jams sound spectacular.  I'll take one of each please.  I'm so happy that Little Cheep is doing so well.  It's so unbelievable that mama visits for feedings and trusts you so much.  I've never heard of such a thing before.  You are truly blessed.  

Honey Cakes sounds good too.  My sis gave me a list of "H" names to think about too.  I'm still thinking.....  I rather like Hope but haven't come up with the C to be her last name. 

I got everything cleaned around the sofa, pulled it out, cleaned behind.  Took down the curtain at the picture window (that was LONG overdue). Also got the window cleaned up real well.   Curtains are going through the wash.  

I hope your PT has gone well today Barbara.  Have a great day to yourself Rita.  

Today is Kegan's' first birthday.  They've got a big party planned.  Carlena posted an incredible video that are pictures from 1st ultrasound up to this week.  WOW, beautiful.  I wish I could share it, but she's rightfully got it for Friends Only.  

Here's a great picture from his celebration photo shoot.  Egads, he melts my heart. 

Comment by Kim Webb yesterday

Oh so glad you found your fabric Froggie. That was awfully nice of the shopkeeper to help you find it. And that you bought something in return.

I got my work done for the day and went and weighed in at WW. 3 straight weeks down. 

You would think I have a whole herd of dogs living here with the fur but it's all from one. She has another whole undercoat that she is shedding now. Brushing everyday and I still find it everywhere.

I think I'm going to work on my hummingbird placemats for a while.

Comment by Rita Crofoot yesterday

Mary , I too have a dyson, I am a big fan, light but so powerful. Mine a couple of years old, and still loving it. Love a bargain.

Honey Cakes, popped into my brain, maybe if you name her something so sweet she will turn out to be a very sweet machine.

Guess what I hit a golf ball across the lawn, and into the raspberry patch, I couldn't believe it worked, Just a little half pitch shot, but it was something.

Finn gone today, He helped yesterday and we did three batches of jam. necterine pineapple, necterine huckleberry, and straight huckleberry with lemon, all turned out good, but I was to pooped to go anywhere last night, so Finn off by himself to meeting.

Little cheep, hummingbird still hanging in, she kept getting out of the little flannel lined amazon box, so had to find her a big box with higher sides. she likes to sort fly hop scoot around, I hope she can keep getting stronger until she can fly. Mama still feeding here many times a day, and we supplement, when we think it has been too long. Her feathers are changing a bit less fuzz and more feathers, I will get some more pics.

Comment by Barbara S/IL yesterday

PT day for me. Now I have lunch in the oven and want to just veg but I also want to do the Blockhead and Splndid Sampler blocks for this week. We're having a t-storm right now though so guess that will wait.

So glad you found the elusive butterfly fabric Froggie. I got an order from QIAD that had a beautiful freebie FQ in it. I am refraining from looking for more of it. I think it may be one of El's lines. Sure is pretty.

DS will be over tonight bringing more veggies. I asked him to bring more jalepeno peppers so I can make that salsa. I sure am enjoying his cukes, too. No sweet corn this year. I may have to buy some at the grocery store.

Lunch is ready. BBL.

Comment by Linda Froggie Quilter (Okla) yesterday

Where is everyone today? Or is Ning messing with me not showing me posts? 

I went to Chickasha, and got some fabrics at the first shop that might work with my Eb quilt. Went to the second shop, they didn't have it either, but the lady said, Can I see your fabric? I want to look it up. She found it right away on Etsy. Yippee! So, I bought some fabric from her, I couldn't just leave after she found it, right? When I got home, it was sold out on the Etsy site, but I had the name, and found it and ordered it. I am happy now. I can get busy working on it again, it's sitting in the corner waiting for me.

Oh now I see how it's for your daughter, kathleen! OOPS. 

That is a great deal, Mary. Now, you know you pay the tax on your return at the end of the year. I am sure everyone does that. I crack me up. 

Wow, that is a crazy trip, Thel. Pregnant lady really should go to the hospital, for herself and the baby. Good thing Pastor Vic stepped in with some good help. Funny you mention how many fiurrs you have, because when I clean up after Chocolate, I think about how much furr you have. Not to say you have bad housekeeping skills. That's me. But it's a lot of hair, I am sure. I get it on my counters and Chocolate doesn't go up there like a cat does. Yuck. I wouldn't trade him for anything. I like Bertha, but she is one Hot Critter. That's what popped into my brain. New couch too! Look at you! Very nice. 

OH I like Honey Cut better than mine. I lose again. 

It looks like I am the only one with 105 temperature today. Yuck, and high humidity. We are landlocked and get high humidity. We have lakes and a river or two, but the biggest river is on the east side of the state. 

Here's my update on my search for the elusive butterfly fabric. I thought it was the same line as another piece I have that still has the selvage. Well, the butterflies aren't the same, it's not from that line, I found a picture that included all the fabric included. Silly Froggie. Now to start over.  I have looked on several sites, and am so tired of looking. I think I might go to the shop in Chickasha and find something in the same colors, and use that for all the remaining blocks. That way, the log cabins will have the same background, and the other blocks will have the same background. I hope this works out. If not, I am making me a strange looking wall hanging.

Good morning, it is a wonderful day today. Rain and humidity back for the weekend and most of next week by the looks of the weather forecast.

Good luck with your new machine Thel. Sounds like quite a day's outing.

Good deal on the new vacuum Mary. Hope it's what your looking for. 

Today I'm off to work in  bit.

Have a great day...
