Right?
well, that does make a difference!!! still, bummer it broke !

The area is too small and the winds are out of the wrong direction. She asked if could set up in 15 min....I said yes. We did the talk....kids kept talking through it. Jack took them over and launched our air rockets with them. They liked that the best! Then they moved over to the next activity. I had already packed up most of our stuff. He came over and finished with what he had. The lady did come over to say thanks and went back to building with a new group. We left....sure glad we didn't have to go far!!!! About 5 min!
my word! that is just nuts!

most of the dust has settled & we should get rain today to wash away what is in the grass but then the dogs still track in sand & grass anyway so my clean floors don't last long. when everything is finished this won't be nearly as bad.

OH yes do not worry...it is in a bag waiting... I was so frustrated, I bought it to do these book marks... and get good clean cuts plus more accurate measures... I love that it has the wider base like 6 inches I think... it has a lock on the guide to which is great with my left hand not being strong enough... * sigh


oh well

Just got back from a memorial service. It was from 1-3pm. We didn't eat lunch before....so, we ate a late lunch/early dinner. Now I'm trying to fight off a headache. Yuck!

Good morning Quackers.

I had a nice evening with DD and family last night.

Soni, glad you are feeling better. I now think that my tummy issues was something I ate, because I ate the same thing this weekend and started to have issues again, but not as severe. So now I know what to stay away from. Glad you were able to get the bookmarks done.

Suzy, hope your headache is gone.

How's everyone else doing? Haven't heard from some Quackers in a while.

Hopefully today will go well. The arbitration that was scheduled for 3 days got settled by the parties so it got cancelled. Ugh!

Justin & Liz camre to dinner last night & mentioned that they do want me to do costumes next year. Should be interesting if not profitable. They are also doing a fund rasier with a silent auction. I said I would donate a baby quilt but Liz asked if I would make a T Shirt quit from old show shirts...again, should be interesting!!!

How cool! A couple of my friends do costumes for the plays around the area. That's a big endeavor. I hope you enjoy it.


I'm looking forward to seeing your T shirt quilt. I have T shirts that I plan to use to make one ... or two ... or three but I've not been able to start it yet. Are you going to use the interfacing? I've heard that it can be done both with or without, and I'm anxious to hear what you choose to do and how it turns out.

Good Morning!

Yes, the headache finally left (Dody and Maggie...thanks for asking)....you are right, Dody. It was probably a combination of things. But, all is good now! Nose is stuffed a bit....but, hey...what else is new?

Soni....the book marks look great. I'm sure Pastor Amy would love anything you do for her.

Dody....wow, that will be a super project of doing the costumes. I can see the t-shirt quilt with all the old shows. That would be a big hit! I'm sure you will do a wonderful job on all of it!

Maggie.....so how is the new porch area for you? It looks great!

It's the normal routine for today....lunch, bowl and check on the other house. I didn't go over to the other house last week when Jack was gone. Gosh....was that just a week ago? It sure does seem longer!

Thursday we'll go and get Jack's blood drawn again to check levels. He has a doctor's appt on Monday. He has been without the blood pressure pills for a week now. We have mentioned it twice now....doctor said he wanted to take him off of them and see what his blood pressure is doing without. I guess this is a good time....he ran out on his trip!

I have only done one & it was with interfacing, it was using some o-l-d clothes & I didn't want to take a chance. This will be with new, extra shirts so I feel better about that. Not sure what I'll use for a backing...need to think about that. I may try FMQ on it since I feel the fabric is safer.

thank you , yes the book marks were simply stated, and that is Pastor Amy's way so it is all good... I may play with a few on my own to see if I can capture a different look

I surprised her with the vinyl sleeves and tassels as my gift to her along with the material and time... She is so awesome in all ways...

After Amy and I visited and she left, I went to Peoria to exchange my cutter...I loved it enough to try one more in hopes it was a fluke... I plan on emailing or calling fiscars as well

I picked up a few groceries and came staight home...


I fixed a small piece of chuck steak on my foreman grill, had boiled taters too ...yum yum it hit the spot...


I am off to my chair with my book for a quiet evening...

Thanks for the link. I'll have to watch this when I have the time. I always like to see how other artists use the markers.

I sure wish I could get off the bp meds, but I don't think that's happening. Since it's staying steady with the meds, I guess we'll just keep going.

My youngest DD is making a quilt. It's plain blocks with the pattern on the front. I didn't know until this past Sunday that she had joined a quilting group from church. She said there are a lot of ladies that are attending it. I didn't realize that there was such a resurgence (?) of interest in quilting. She also told me that there are about 5-6 ladies from her Ward that have been in the quilting group for some time and they enter their quilts in fairs and shows and the last show, each of the ladies came home with at least one ribbon. Wow!

Yes, the headache finally left (Dody and Maggie...thanks for asking)....you are right, Dody. It was probably a combination of things. But, all is good now! Nose is stuffed a bit....but, hey...what else is new?

Soni....the book marks look great. I'm sure Pastor Amy would love anything you do for her.

Dody....wow, that will be a super project of doing the costumes. I can see the t-shirt quilt with all the old shows. That would be a big hit! I'm sure you will do a wonderful job on all of it!

Maggie.....so how is the new porch area for you? It looks great!
The patio is fabulous! I had a GF come over last night and I told her the next time she came over if it was nice out, we'd have to sit out on the patio. Hope we don't have mosquitos by then.

I fixed a small piece of chuck steak on my foreman grill, had boiled taters too ...yum yum it hit the spot...

I am off to my chair with my book for a quiet evening...
I sure hope that cutter was a dud and the new one will give you lots of years of service. I hate when I buy something and then it doesn't do the job.

morning all!

Maggie.....the bowling went fine. We won all 4....but, then the other team forfeited. Didn't show up at all and didn't pre-bowl. So, at that point....we take our average ...subtract 50 and when we beat that number ..we win! As for my scores....I did a 140, 125, 127. I stepped wrong on the 2nd game and my leg was sore after that. It finally worked itself out. But, for the time....that was my scores. At least we won. It always looks bad when you loose and no one else was there! The team next to us bowled the vacant team.....we have one too many. So everyone has to bowl that team that really isn't there! You can always count on getting out of there early! We then were visiting with some of the other people there. Our bowling partners are always in a hurry to leave...not sure why. Oh well.....at least we won't have to worry about that for the summer. We aren't bowling during the summer on Wed. That will feel strange. But, I'm glad we decided that because the bowling alley's ac doesn't work real well when it gets warm. Both ends of the bowling alley were warm and the center was cool. Since the desk and central operations are in the center...they don't notice. It was feeling warmer yesterday....at 1pm. I can only imagine how it will feel once it gets hot all day long. By 6pm....too uncomfortable! Been there before!

Just watched a couple of videos on some SU cards. Very cool....need to try cutting out that way. So, if it works...it will be in the envelope! That's the only hint I'll give! LOL

oh yes! quilting is very popular now with men even. That's why there is a waiting list for the Lake County guild here, they top it off at 150! I hope she enjoys making quilts, it's such a rewarding hobby.

I wonder about lemon grass, they say it keeps them away & smells so nice too.
