Good afternoon!! Yes, Phyl- prayers that all goes well and its a blessing that they are doing all the necessary testing to be thorough.
Ruth, well if you counted the number of days I actually get to craft- its not that many. Remember looking at everyone elses cool stuff counts....so we all crafted cause we stopped here to say helllo!
Rene- years ago a woman (think her name was Tammy) from Arizona had a brother that she could embroider ANYTHING with. She was so talented and creative. Good to see that you are mastering your brother and persevered over the back stitch. The dog is adorable, and for a first effort with that machine tremendous! IMO no one will notice that Ds’s masks are wine glasses. Let them think they are baloons. Or sherbet glasses. Or parfait glasses....people can be so absurd.
CJ- so glad you got those pictures posted!!! (Which I have never been able to accomplish). LOVE LOVE LOVE the mason jar quilt- which is pretty much what I envisioned. Such a nice job and so colorful. Bet you had fun picking out those fabrics. And the Lemoyne star is magnificent. I do know (from my BOM classes ) how very critical pressing is when working with all those pieces of fabric. You have taken many more quilting classes than I have and I am sure know that already. Nice job....so pretty. The jelly snowflake is nice too- a simple and elegant design with those silly flying geese. Seems like most everywhere Covid cases are going up.
My friend went to her doctor very recently (non covid issue) and he said to “prepare for the second wave”. Think I will just quietly try to stock up on some items again- I did not go nuts the first time and will not do so the second. But I do remember those items that seemed to be difficult to find and might attempt to get a fair supply of them- again just to be safe.
Took DD to the store today (she cannot drive yet) and picked up a few things. Unfortunately we were in Sam’s and I cannot do my regular shopping there, there are some items I cannot get there. So in the next day or so I will get to my regular store and get what I need to fill in. Heading out for a short walk and then I plan on either embroidering or pinning and ironing that binding. Ginny

Thanks all for the compliments, I appreciate them I wish we could all share our pictures so we could see what we are doing.
Ginny - if you have pictures on your computer, I can tell you what external site I used to load them onto and then how I put them on here. Just let me know if you're interested.
I lucked out on the canning jar fabrics because I bought them as 2 fat quarter packs - one fruits and one vegetables. The wood fabric I picked out separately. It felt good to get that top done since I'd been wanting to make it for probably 5 or 6 years.
Sue, so sorry about yesterday being one of those days....but today is a new day and we all hope much much better for you.
CJ- would love the directions/software to get pictures posted here. When you get a chance either post it here or email the directions . Thanks so much!!
Phyl- so far so good.....glad that the bloodwork seems to be ok. Hope the sonogram shows nothing serious- and yes from my limited knowledge a sinus infection could cause a swelling like that. As we have said before, better safe than sorry.
Hey Rene- what is next?? What will you work on next to give that new Brother a workout! Hope you are having fun with it. What has worked out to be your best source of information on how to use it?
Last night I did get to putting the binding together, today I have to trim it and press it.....then pin it into place. With a queen sized quilt its going to take awhile. Last night Ds and I drove to several locations to see if we could see the Neowise comet. No luck- there were some clouds in strategically bad locations. Lovely night to be out however.

choney2, I'm watching youtube videos about using a shirt I love to make a new one lol. It's a very basic scoop neck with dolman sleeves, and it's my favorite "around the house" type of shirt I have a lot of fabric from the girlcharlee site that's thin t-shirt type stretch cotton, so it should be perfect for this sort of thing As far as sources, really youtube is "real people" so it's more relatable than someone droning on from a manual lol. My machine is just a version of the SE400 and SE625, so any of the videos about those models is pretty much the same Sorry you missed the comet. We should have been able to catch a glimpse, but it was hazy (Sahara dust?) so we gave up after a few minutes.
Cj I did it went into a quilting life and just changed the date and got block 3 snowflake. still need to cut block 2 out.can't make up my mind what I want to for the center. I will get it figured out. thank you for the links.
woke up today knowing I had to be some place.took me a few minutes to remember to go to the clinic for the ultra sound.that will be after lunch.
looks like the lump has gone down some. even it it is a swollen gland I will feel better knowing for sure.
sinus seem to be easing up.maybe because yesterday it was 77 and we were able to have the windows open.
I was going to go downstairs and get my playpen cleaned up. well maybe
be back later to see what my friends are up to. phyl
personal challenge is: get to the y more often. like 4-5 days a week.
Here are the instructions I used. I set up an account on postimages.org first and then followed these steps to add a photo from my computer:
To add a photo from your computer: Go to postimages.org, click CHOOSE IMAGES. This will take you to the files on your computer. Click on the photo you want to use, click OPEN. This will temporarily upload your photo to their site and they'll give you a URL to use - you want to use the one that says DIRECT LINK. Then you just follow the instructions I gave above for posting a photo that's online.
Once you have the picture on postimages.org, then you open a reply on this message board and look for the icon above that is "Insert Image" (it's the 8th from the right side). Then copy the link (I had to use the second line that says "Direct Link") on postimages.org and paste it into the "IMAGE Url" line and click "Insert Image" once you have the Url copied.
NOTE: I had to delete the "http://" that is already showing up once you click the button on our message board since the link I copied from postimages.org already had that on it.
Sorry if these sound confusing but once I figured out the first one, it was pretty easy. Hope you can give it a try.
I haven't tried this method yet, so not sure if it works:
To add a photo that's already online: Right click on the photo and then click on Copy Image Location. Then click on the INSERT IMAGE button above (it's the one to the right of the envelope icon) and paste the URL in the IMAGE URL spot.
Phyl - I'm glad you found the pattern for Block 3. The blog websites for this quilt along are so busy you have to search everywhere just for the pattern! I did see that the video on in, done by the Fat Quarter Shop, has a link too. Here's the video link for anyone that wants to see it:
