Mail Call for today Sept 21 2009

Dh finally found the tree maker that I can use with my older version..as I did not want to redo 9 years all over again plus add what I did not get to put in there when I gave up genealogy about 8 years ago...census, and such..no way..lol On top is some key chains I think dh got free..of course these were in his name but after opening the other below for me, I just could not stop myself..I thought my yellow rubber ducky with thermometer was one of them, yes I get to play with a yellow rubber ducky in my hot tub..lol how cool is that...and keep up the the temps..too...lol I know I am bit crazy but aren't we all at times!!
3 fabrics I got on sale at equilters.com..50 % off..I bought 5 yards for mom of the Elvis print for her to make herself an Elvis quillow...and told her she is not giving this one away..I have bought her I do not know how many red, purple and so one at least 3 times each and if someone loves it she gives it to them..told her no more..and this is it, don't mean to sound so cruel but I can only buy so much and I do not even like some of the people she gave them too, they use my mom..but she loves to help people..I do not want to be like that, she is wore out because of it..she has finally slowed done and stopped helping these people..she is going to be 81 and she is helping others younger than her..bless you mom...she will love this fabric..I have seen the other colors in this Elvis print but the colors are great in this one.
Close up of one the panels..can't wait to cut it up and make something out of it..


Oh my mind is going crazy with all the different techniques I can put on this panel and yes it will be cut up too, I am not sure who I am making this for..yet..

I am back in a book club, boy did I miss it, too..this time I noticed I bought 3 bios..and one book on birds on how to attract them in your yard..and one Patricia Cornwell..got some good reading to do..too bad I can read in the hot tub..lol do hope my rubber ducky comes in tomorrow..lol thank you for visiting my blog...I miss you , Birdy, where are you and what are you doing...email me please..Lots of hugs, Lorraine

A Hornet's nest Don found on apple tree

Kathy said: A hornet's nest Don found in an apple tree. Usually can't get them until midwinter when they are abandoned but this one became vacant early. Don said he had to throw a few apples at it to make sure!!

Photo of just the Treasure Box quilt.you can see also my bluebird chime hanging down...I made two of these but rolling out slip we use to ceramics and using my pattern of the bluebird and made mom one and than me..click to see a larger view

Chat:
I called my Dr for more pills, but he denied me and now only have enough for 3 days..I see him on the 14th and we discuss this last week on the phone to get me something else...and he said we would but in mean time what am I suppose to..so a lot of heating pads and rice pad to keep the pain away as much as I can..I will call my Dr's that did the test on me and see if I can go back on Naproxen since I am on the purple pill..tomorrow...I did tell him that I did not want to be on this pill because of the habit forming tendencies and have been on it for 3-4 months..but only need two weeks...he said to come in and told them I can't, my dh is on shut down for 2 weeks and he can't take any days off...and was lucky I did not have to reschedule my test at the hospital but will have to cancel my apt on the 9th with my eye specialist..but they know this with my dh job..I have done it so many times with them.
I am working on my autumn bargello stitch in the ditch very slowly with holographic gold thread and polyester invisible thread but it is not sliding very easily as the other quilts..and having to use more of my arm and that hurts..the batting is bit softer cotton batting, do not where I bought it at..than I will work on my fish art for my bathroom..poor things are calling my name...lol
I have also received my paints for my acrylic painting class and it has 10 lessons/blocks likely the call it..I have to still buy the right size palette as I can not find mine and don't think it is large enough. A lot of videos to download and a lot of pd to download
Someone, Claudine from the autism site, had mentions Pandora.com and went to it and it was really neat..you might want to try it out..
I found a game I like in Fb finally, Fish Bowl..I just love it..it is easy, simple and does not take much of my time. the listening to the sound of the water bubbles is so soothing it relaxing me..
I got into two other games, Fish Bowl and paradise board of something like that but don't like them and will delete them..even Farkle I do not like anymore..so I will just with my fishes!! lol have a great evening and thank you for visiting my blog, hugs, Lorraine
