    Wow, I'm glad I got on board when I did, the place is filling up. Ok, got the patches cut out, I have a lot of duplicates, but that is okay too! I found some honey meade at the liquor store we're gonna try for New Years Eve, so I'll bring a few 'thimblefulls' to the club car. Hehe

    I missed the carrot marmelade/jam recipe if it was posted?
    Everything important in my life, like naps, I learned from my dog.

    I FINALLY got my squares and rectangles all cut. WHEW! I sewed together several threesies. Hope to finish them tomorrow and post a pic. Mine is kind of a controlled scrappy. I just cut and cut and cut putting them in piles of 10. When I got to 100 I put them in piles by color to see what I needed more of. I am just kind of grabbing from different piles to sew them together but kind of trying to have contrasting lights and darks next to each other.
    I also worked on the wallhanging. I need to figure out how big it is going to be so I can sew together the ground and sky fabrics. Then I can iron on the elephants and trees. Then the leaves and the cutest little birdie. There will be cotton and flannel and the tree fabric is from an old bed skirt that looks kind of like suede and it is the perfect shade of brown.
    Brat, I noticed a diagonal of pinks going through one of your blocks! Made me think maybe I should have done some of that matching up colors.

    What fun I had on a stay in snow day! I had lots of 4 1/2" blocks already cut for my I Spy Linus projects. I chose 54 different ones and got the 6 blocks made! Now I'm anxious for the next "drill".

    My ds in a railroad engineer so I know what a "drill" is!

    Beautiful colours in your blocks! However, it looks like you tried to control them? Go wild and don't try to match colours at all. Oh, the joy of scrappy!

    Oh my goodness, lots of chatter this morning, everyone must have had a good night's sleep! I know I did - really tired after putting away all the inside house decorations. Tomorrow will take down the outside lights, and then it's over for another year. With Thanksgiving being so early, and I am one of those nut cases who puts up lights the day after T-day, seems as if that stuff was floating around for a long, long time!

    Beautiful 9-ptches showing up, and more people joining the mystery. So glad to see all the new gals. I have my prototype all done and quilted, but last night I started on 9-patches for the king quilt I want to make, and had gone to Joann to buy the batting -- got some low-low loft, hope it will be lightweight enough for a summer quilt.

    Hope everyone has a nice New Year's Eve and a good start to the new year. I always figure the up-coming year will be better than the old one.

    I had decided there was no way I have time for this. Last night I was up in my sewing room and started pulling out stuff to make it , so I guess I am in. I have leftovers of a charm pack from my daughters quilt. I am not a charm pack type of person. There are 39 squares left. SO I guess I will cut some more squares. I will probably have to make the big one to use up more scraps. I will have to wait to pick the A and B fabric until I see the instructions. I have trouble making thing totally scrappy as I have to have an order to my quilts.
    Does my A and B fabric have to be all the same thing or can it just read as almost the same?? I don't have a lot of big pieces of scraps.

    lowlow loft? got me I use all cotton batting and I think youcant get less loft than that stuff. 1/4 inch maybe? thin. I love it in summer quilts almost bedspread thickness.. my favorite. I still think they are warm as all heck.

    meanmom gosh I love your name. My kids would have sworn I was the meanest mom ever when they were little.. I was told that oodles of times!

    Judy a king size quilt? swoon. I have never done one of those. all those pieces! cutting for weeks on end they found her exhausted melted into her soon to be quilt covered in little squares.. fingers worn offf.. like that old song Worked my fingers to the bone what do you get? bony fingers.. bony fingers. I love that song btw its like super funky hillbilly country.. bony fingers.. bony fingeeerrs.. now that I want to see your skinny little fingers holdingthat monster quilt! show us show us oh you cant .. we will know the secret to the train ride.

    carrot recipe upcoming right? and I am hungry whats for breakfast? if I am cooking we can all have our daily apple. I am off to grab one right now. now that..is a good breakfast..
