Just one malt? How about a red malt (tomatoe juice), my favorite.
Lorchen, Happy Birthday!! celebrate like a rock star.

Happy Mothers Day to all :)

Yes, I definitely think a single malt will definitely feature in her birthday celebrations;-) What a great idea to party with her. I am trying to get back into quilting again so it is great incentive for this procrastinator to get back into it.
Have a great 60th Lorchen!!!

That was the museum Lorna & I visited in March, it is just over 25 miles from me. I think it was on display some years ago when I first visited, but whether I saw the original or the replica I don't recall. As the article states it is being carefully stored and will only come out on very special occasions. I don't know if you can make appointments to view it, but it is probably possible.

Happy Birthday, Lorchen! I'll be spending it in Kansas City with my family as I drive out there on Sat for MQS. I'll be thinking of you!

Just watched this show. IT WAS FUN!

I think that I have both brains too, But what I really need is a 'Get 'Er Finshed' brain! instead of a 'Lets Start Something New' brain. I've just decided to add making a copy of the 1718 Coverlet to my list of projects :roll: http://www.quiltmuseum.org.uk/blog/quilt-history-articles/01265.html

Rosemary, That quilt is amazing. I think it might take a lifetime to collect and choose the fabrics. Have you started that? Lois
Half the life time will be taken up working out the design. Some of them are easy to see, but others are much harder and I don't have a good large picture of the piece. What I would like would be a book with the outline drawings of each block(pref to size) facing a colour photo of the block. The original was worked a piecing over papers, but I am sure that other methods would also work. The mildly annoying part is that the design has already been drawn up to make the copy.

If it is a birthday party,are we going to 'play pass the parcel'? It is one of my favourites.

We also play 'hunt the thimble' at DD's partys.

Let's have a party for Lorchen. Wherever we are we will party for Lorchen and post how we celebrated. It's Mother's Day in the USA this weekend and since my kids are both far away and I don't want to grieve their absence (It's so hard not too.) I'd much rather celebrate Lorchen's birthday. Yeah! Now I know why I purchased that new hot pink jacket and crop pants. It's for Lorchen's birthday party. I can't wait. How are you going to celebrate Lorchen's birthday? I am going to do something completely and totally right brain and I will do something to anesthetize the left. Now how does a person anesthetize the left? Rita, any ideas?

Great idea, Lois!! And I'll bet Lorchen has some pretty good ideas about how to anesthetize the left brain :D Perhaps something to do with single malt? (and I don't think that's a milkshake!). In any case, I'm definitely in!!

I'm in for the party! Should I buy something hot pink, like Lois and cropped pants! Maybe I'll post a new pic of me with my new red glasses! We could all do "a something for Lorchen's BD project" and post it in show and tell, or send it to her ! Oh-oh, my right brain is working overtime!!!
