The JB quilt was not difficult to put together as long as you label all the fabrics - she even includes stickers to do so!  The instructions were very clear.  The only part that was challenging was getting the border corners to match up but the instructions for that are very good also.  I do think it would be more difficult if you just had the pattern and not the kit since it's the color gradations in the fabrics that give the 3D effect.

Jennifer - Thanks for your lovely comments on my Faberge quilt.  I love all the Jinny Beyer designs too!  If you decide to get one of her kits do not open and play with the fabric - lol  It's packed in a specific order so you can ID and label each fabric - I'm so glad I actually read the directions before checking out all the pretty colors!

Jennifer, Thank you for the kind comments on my quilts.  I'm trying to get more sewing done, so I haven't spent much time QWU.  Have a wonderful weekend.

Must indeed be a shoveling injury! Actually, my elbow has been tender this winter (too much hand quilting, I think) and the recent shoveling made it go from sore to painful. I googled "tennis elbow" this week, just wondering if that was it and all the symptoms matched perfectly. I bought a brace the other day, too. Glad to know your husband's elbow is improving. Gives me hope!

Glad you were in town for the blizzard! DH was stuck in the Bahamas, poor baby, and will finally get back tonight. Bless the neighbors who helped the girls and I shovel out! The street really worked together helping each other with shovels and snow blowers. I did mess up my elbow though, which is really hampering my quilting. I have an appt with an orthopedist on the 14th if I don't improve.

Hi Jennifer, how did you make out with the blizzard? I bet your kids were happy with the two days off school. Hope you were home to enjoy it!

I told someone the other day that I'd long ago given up on winning "The Most Awesome Mom" award. I'm just hoping to avoid the "The Mom Who Screwed up Her Kid" award. I think if I'll keep that perspective, it may be easier to ignore the those who are still desperatetly competing for the "Most Awesome" award. Certainly my sanity would have a better chance of remaining intact (what little I have left). Hope you get a chance to catch your breath before you are on the road again.

Jennifer, I really enjoyed your blog yesterday. Being a mom, working at home or out of the home, is like navigating around a land mine with a blind fold on. I attended our bi-annual Parent meeting last night and your blog was so timely. I felt like ranting, but DH is out of town and it's not as satisfying to vent to the 11 year old. So I felt much better after reading your blog. If we didn't care so much about our kids, we wouldn't get so wound up about this stuff. So thanks for sharing.

How was your trip with your sisters and how did your DD's oral surgery go? I've been wondering......Hope the trip was fantastic and the surgery uneventful!

Thank you, thank you, thank you for the advice about my fabric bleeding problem. I will be ordering the Synthropol. Have fun in SF! I am going to Leech Lake in northern Minnesota. I plan to bring my grandmother's flower garden to hand peice and bags of scraps to cut into 5" squares and strips for log cabins. Fun!

Yes, I've started it and didn't get too far. With dh home I just don't anything done. I'm glad you had a good birthday. Now our days are over, back to normal.

Happy Birthday. Hope your day is extra special!

Hi Jennifer,
Yes, all the bird wall hangings are paper pieced. The cardinals came from a QuiltMaker pattern and they now sell it on their website. They also have a pattern of about 8 small paper pieced birds on their website that I've been meaning to purchase. The blue jay and robin wall hangings I designed myself, using 3" patterns for each bird that were published in Quilter's Newsletter (they used to include a 3" paper pieced pattern in each issue). In both cases, I reversed the bird pattern for one of the birds and adapted their branch by adding more branches. I'm so glad you liked them!

Hi Jennifer,
Some things don't seem meant to be! I'm designated chauffeur for my DD tonight while DH is out of town. I really thought I could make it this month. Enjoy the meeting! Maybe we'll meet someday when we're both retired and empty-nesters!

Thanks for the info on Bonnie Hunter's site. I've read referrals about her before, it just skipped my mind. I'll have to check it out.

Hi Jennifer,
The fabric shop in Crystal Lake opened this week. It's called Material Girl. Looks like she bought the inventory from Millie, so I recognized many fabrics. The new owner has the upholstery and fancy fabrics on sale, so I think she's going to concentrate on the cottons. Still plenty of batiks. This weekend is the Crystal Lake sidewalk sale, I think today through Saturday. Material Girl has bolts out front at $3 a yard and all fabric inside is 25% off. I went this morning and bought some fabric. Thought you might be interested in a bargain. Hope to see you in Woodstock on the 20th.

At band practice last night, I told the baritone/tuba player sitting next to me about that piece. During our bathroom break, I heard him trying to do it. I turned to him laughing, "I've given you a challenge now, huh?" (He just happens to be a music teacher at a local high school and plays in a quintet, he's very good and loves challenges!)

Thanks for the comment on your husband playing tuba. I still remember playing in a band in Pullman, WA when most of the college students had gone home for summer. We played in the park and finished with Souasa's "Stars and Stripes Forever March", like always. We got a standing ovation, so we did it again as an encore, but instead of the piccolos playing the featured counter-melody at the end, our tuba player played it. Mention this to your husband and see what he says - I had never heard anything like that and had no idea a tuba player's fingers could move so fast...LOL!

I forgot all about it. I try to remember.
