We have a couple of " wounded" ducklings...don't worry Linda and Gail, you'll float along in the current, and we'll all keep tabs on you :-)

But there's one duckling that's in trouble, and has gone off in a wrong direction...

       ...   you know who you are little one, maybe it's time to get started...after all, we're already in the middle of Feb.!

What a beautiful quilt, Barbara.

Comment by Elizabeth Phillips on February 12, 2020 at 10:45am

Your quilting is so beautiful!  I wish I had your patience.

Comment by Barbara Hughes on February 12, 2020 at 8:32am

Thanks everyone. It takes me a long time to do each section I guess that's why I set it down for so long. The motto is PERSEVERE, right???

Barbara, you've chosen great motifs for that quilt!  It's gorgeous.

Comment by Riana Noyes on February 11, 2020 at 9:54pm

Gail, I think that fabric I bought in Barbados is well put away.  I looked in several obvious places.  Riana, I may have put it in the tubs in the closet.  Anyway, I am doing well.  Tulip Twist 1 is ready to be sandwiched tomorrow.

Gail, so sorry that you are in a lots of pain.  You must be so proud of your daughters who cleaned your home and painted your kitchen.  They sound like such kind women.

Comment by Gail Brown on February 10, 2020 at 2:03pm

Wilma, I am loving your Winter Memories, can't wait to see the finished quilt.

Elizabeth, get that $90.00 fabric out of the bag and do something.I'm sure it's much too pretty to be hidden away.  I've seen some of the beautiful things you have done and I'm sure you will do something to make that fabric shine.

I'm still not able to do much of  anything yet using my arms because of this darn compression fracture. I mostly have to keep my arms at my sides, I have discovered that I can sit and make hexagons for my Grand Daughter without a lot of pain, and NO, I am not starting

another Grand Mothers FlowerGarden!!

Yesterday two of my Daughters came over and cleaned our place and painted our kitchen a very cheerful yellow.. 

Riana, we won't worry about one less month in the year since it's Leap Year and there is an extra day.  There is always an "up side" if you look hard enough.  That's what I've been telling myself.  I have a friend that was born on the 29th and she is telling everyone she will be 20 this year.

Melanie - hang in there!  Sewing time will come to you.  Those are paper pieced.  It's a version of a double wedding quilt.

I've not done much PHD work this week.  I spent every day at my daughter's playing with the grandsons. I have done some quilting work on the current WIP.  Just got that machine back from a cleaning and check up.  Need to make sure it's in fine shape *wink*

Comment by Riana Noyes on February 9, 2020 at 8:43pm

Melanie, when you get a grandson living in, there's an upside...young and strong. Put him to work shifting boxes you may have packed up to store, lol. I'm sure as soon as you and Zoe get those family priorities taken care of you'll both get down to sewing more. But remember, it's Feb. now...1 less month in the year. Don't let those chores drag on. Put a time limit on how much of that you do...then switch over to other things ( including some sewing! )

Liz, if you can't find the project by the time you've finished Tulip Twist #2, it may be time to reorganize those lovely cupboards and find what else has been hiding! For those of you who don't know, Elizabeth has a whole wall of lovely white cabinets, all for her sewing goodies! Mostly well organized...but who knows, sometimes things get " burried" under other stacks.

I'm a BAD duckie.  I haven't made much progress yet on any of my PHD - have worked on cleaning up my sewing and dining rooms, but still not done.  Our grandson has moved into the spare bedroom and I'm busy trying to sort and toss and store many things.  I did get some work done on the baby block quilt and have sandwiched the purple quilt for quilting.  I'm not sure where I put the thread for it at this point, but I'll try to get something done and post pictures soon. 

You ladies are all amazing!  I've been catching up on my reading.  Mary - those socks are just fantastic.  Kris H - love the blocks and colors.  Are those appliqué or pieced curve seams?  Either way, they are spectacular!

Linda, glad to hear this lat surgery is done and you are working on mending.  Spotify has such great selections of music.  And you're starting a business too?  Wow!  Mary, love your sewing room and chair.  I don't dare post any pics yet, but maybe when I am finished with the sorting and tossing.

Off to do some more work tonight. You all take care, busy ladies!  God bless the work of your hands and hearts.

Looks like it will be a while before I get back to it, Elizabeth.  Don't let me slow you down.  I will eventually catch up. 

Comment by Elizabeth Phillips on February 9, 2020 at 9:43am

Linda, I am only working on Tulip Twist 1 - the quilt which will contain the 4 extra blocks from my real PhD priority - Tulip Twist 2 made up of the 12 blocks I selected from the 16 I made.  TT 1 is 49 x 49 and I will be working on a pieced backing  for it.  You have plenty of time to get better and be right with me as we work on our PhDs.  Anyway, it will give you incentive to get up and get going when you are feeling better.  Riana wants me to select another project for my PhD - I did, but it is so old I can't remember where I put it.

Wilma, I love winter memories quilt!!!!!!

Well Elizabeth you are surpassing me....yay! You go girl! Can't wait to see your finished quilt. 

Comment by Elizabeth Phillips on February 8, 2020 at 11:39am

It is lovely to see your progress on Winter Memories!

I just finished the top of Tulip Twist 1.  I'm going to give it a press and start piecing a backing for it.

Comment by Barbara Hughes on February 8, 2020 at 9:35am

Beautiful block, Mary. It's going to be a lovely quilt.

Love the winter theme Willy. Nice work.

I have the star part finished on my quilting and today I will go on to the white that surrounds the star. So far I am not thrilled with this quilt.I've had to take out stitches in large areas twice. Screeeam!!!  LOL!!!
