Beautiful block, Diana. It's great to hear that you're back in full action - you must be if you spent the day in the garden.

I got Lillian's pretty block today. Now I can try to get an idea for how to put them together. Thanks everyone for the beautiful blocks.

Welcome to the group Rebecca.  As you will be able to tell, some of us get pretty chatty, but that is what is great about this group! 

Well, everyone, I survived the 2nd colonoscopy with very little discomfort.  In fact, the only discomfort I had was drinking that awful gunk that you have to drink before hand.  Since my records now show that I'm allergic to morphine they used a different anesthetic on me and it was great.  I was awake for the whole procedure and they had me laughing at the end.  I felt well enough to go out for lunch and grocery shopping on my way home!  They did remove 5 polyps one of which was pretty big and diagnosed me with  Diverticulosis so now I need to start taking a fiber supplement as they said we can't eat enough food every day to get the amount of fiber we really need. 

I'm so happy that Lillian's blocks are starting to make their way home to everyone.  Hopefully mine will be here tomorrow.  Once it is here I will definitely upload a pic of all of them together. 

Diana, I think bed runners started to become popular when the cost of quilt shop quality fabric went over $10 per yard here in the US.  It is a way to have a quilt on your bed without spending several hundred dollars to do so.  They can be quite pretty laid over top of a white on white bedspread or quilt. 

Lou Ann, it sounds like you are settling in as a "single woman" again.  I would feel the exact same way you do about his kids.  Thoughtless little beasts they are! 

I have not touched my hollow cube for 2 days so I'm going to go put some stitches in it tonight.  I'm down to the last border and am really chomping at the bit to get it finished!

LOL Sheila! I have days like that...like today!

I did it on my Pfaff Mid-Arm (Expression 2.0) - at times it was a bit challenging to work on the long sides, but the basting spray made it so much easier - didn't have to look out for and stop to take out the pins.

Lou Ann, you're right about the mixed levels of understanding when you teach - hopefully you don't have to spend too much extra time with the since other people paid the same amount and time's limited and when you have to babysit someone for too long other students get restless and I don't blame them.

Ann/LA, try that video link I posted below. You just have to take your time and clip the back batting carefully. Try it, you'll like it...to borrow a commercial's phrase...

I love your trapunto, QD and I think the design is beautiful but, I honestly cannot get into the idea of a bed runner. Heck, if my bed is even made I think it's great! LOL!

Lillian, your lovely block came today!! Now let's see if I can get it put together within the coming year. Yea, right. I just love that no two blocks are the same & that we have so many different design themes. AND - only 2 blocks are on the same fabric! This will be fun.

Welcome Rebecca! And thanks to all of you for your kind thoughts and prayers. I've now moved some of my clothes to where his used to be, have a donation batch started, and Cricket and I are walking every day. Maybe not tonight as it is nippy and breezy, but it feels so good to be free. He called me yesterday to get him a Rx filled, I tried but they had been filled on the 15th - the day he moved and no more until the 5th. I called his phone and when he didn't answer, left a voicemail telling him that. I figure that since I wasn't included in the move or even the day of the move, that he has 7 kids that can have him completely back. I feel free!

Terrific traupunto QD. I found when I taught the class, that some students got and more of them didn't. I would have loved to have you in my class! You would have shown them all up. Great job!!
