Lou Ann, I feel like I've discovered GOLD with AG designs!  So many wonderful items to make, easy, just need to learn to read my metric hoops.

I finished  the 2 receiving blankets this morning, now I'm working on my AG quillow blocks.  These are looking SO NICE!  I may go ahead and finish it at home!  This is really nice looking.  Sure hope the fleece works out okay and behaves.

Wow!  A cat that likes water!  That's rare!  

Froggie, report on how that Floriani workshop went.  I think the local Bernina shop does that now and then.  I may go to it!

What great goodies, and Mary Alice, I traded one of the designs I didn't like, for that one, because Froggie had shown us what she was doing. I'm glad that I have it in my stash. I don't have any butterflies that large though! I'll have to come up with something else for the other block. And Froggie, you sure make Mr. Lose look good.

Ranchmom, love your creations too! And Barbara, you'd better hope that Tux will settle in at the vet. I can't imagine what the bill would be to take him home.

You gals are having great fun with Patrick, Walter, and Steve. Keep it up! And dear Mari, you deserve all of the time off you want - Enjoy!

Oh Barbara, maybe Tux wants to be an office cat! Good idea. It sounds like he is a really mellow cat, likes getting a bath? Wow.

Oh no, Mary Alice! DD1 was a preemie, weighted 4lb 13oz, she was tiny for a long time! My MIL made her doll clothes! Now she is normal size. I crack me up. See what 39 years does to a kid? She catches up!

I am off to B Sew Inn to drool over Walter Floriani all day, and his new goodies for sewing!

There was a time was a lot of fun in a fabric shop, now it's the garden shop. While she no longer wants plants, she loves the garden area, tools, etc.

Got some fabric cut out for a receiving blanket, and it's rather small. Hoping it lasts the baby more than a week, especially if it's a big baby. Was going to make two, but perhaps I'll make just one. I already have that quilt I made earlier for her as well.

Ironed the fabric for the AG quillow, I'll be making. I'll cut everything out tomorrow and start stitching.

Looks like Tux will be at the Vets for a few more days. He gets laser treatments and hydro-therapy, too. He's such a mellow guy that he let's them sit him in the sink and spray him with water. What normal cat does that?? Anyway, the Vet's office recently lost one of their office cats and are hoping Tux will stay and fill that spot. He may just do that.

I finally got all the bargello strips sewn down. It's a pretty large table runner. Next step is to do some applique and then trim and binding. 

Mari, have a nice weekend.

Mary Alice sorry your Mom is being such a pill. Maybe she needs a happy pill.

Ouch, Mary Alice! Mom is no fun?
Comment by Linda Froggie Quilter (Okla) yesterday

It's Spring Blossoms, Mary Alice. I hope you find it, it was fun, addicting, and easy. Oh no, Mom was no fun at a fabric shop? Both of my grandsons had huge heads, so they were C-section. I haven't looked at how the quillow goes together, but I bet there are lots of blocks to make.

I have been working all day! I think I deserve three play days in a row! hehee. I just updated my Floriani designs list, so I don't buy something I already have. I need to update my AG list too, but that's not going to happen today!

Afternoon you all!  Mari, I'll be watching for your blog and the new LL block tomorrow.  

Froggie, let me know the package the AG flowers are on so I can look out for it at the workshop when I can buy 2 design CDs and get one free.   I went to Joanns today to use my gift card to get my goodies for my AG workshop.  Next time remind not to take my mom, she's as exciting to go shopping with as getting a endoscopy, or a colonoscopy.

Also got some flannel to make a quick receiving blanket for the new baby girl in our family come Monday.  Celeste is having a C-section.  My understanding is that this is one HUGE baby---we'll  see, cause the mom was pretty huge to begin with before the baby.

Tux will love his probiotics.   I just hope he heals fast, poor baby.  

I'm off to sew!  I'm so excited. I may just start stitching out the  pieces for the AG quillow as there are a few blocks to make on that project.

Comment by Mari/WA yesterday

Good morning everyone! It's probably afternoon to many of you though. Just wanted to let you know I'm off today and tomorrow. I'll be peeking in as I have a blog to load tomorrow but just wanted you to know because you won't see me much for a few days!
