    meanmom - BEAUTIFUL!!!! Love the colors, and the background makes the stars pop!!!! You do great work!!!! Makes me want to get something finished!!! I have so many projects on the burner. Think I'm going to have to start picking one and finish, one and finish. That might get more things done. Really need to get my basement back into "quilting" order. After I finish work tomorrow I'll be off another week till Monday the 12th. DH and I are going to get the basement back together before I go insane!!! He knows if I'm not sewing/quilting I'm going nutz. How well I have him trained. Plus, when I'm down in the basement I get double benefit. Stairs to go to the bathroom and there is no food down there. Can't wait to get back at it!!
    The trouble with Trouble is.....It usually starts out like fun!!

    i stood on concrete for 25 yrs, and had a broken ankle yrs ago. now my bones know it, by the end of the day. i just try to be more active, in my house work, and walking up and down the stairs. 3 stories. with my sewing in the basement. use an excercise bike some. quit going to resistance band excercise class. my shoulder just never healed right, and i thought i was doing more harm than good.

    I heard from cindy this morning. what with her moving, looking for a job, and starting her new job, she is really busy. she is going to send the FQ's to me, i think, and let me sort them out.
    what say, don't send any FQ's anyplace for this month. if you haven't. join, and if you want, and we will maybe start sending them directly to the winner? what say?
    maybe she will keep starting the thread.
    we love her encouragement, and kind words she is always giving us.
    NO I not sending the FQ"s to You, I am sending out your winnings. I was letting you know that . So please send them to me for this month. I am sorry you mis understood what I sent to you.

    I have not moved, I was just laidoff and job searching and finally found something.

    I am not giving up the thread or what i have been doing.

    Life loves to throw us curve balls. And I know I have had a few. For those who have been so patient with me on getting their winnings........First I want to APOLOGIZE for my neglect in mailing them out in a timely manner as it says in the sign up.

    Second...... they have all been mailed and you should be getting them some time next week. I have added a little extra to those who are way late.......please let me know when you get them.


    Again I am sorry and please forgive me.

    I am ahead of the game with mailing out the October winnings, they went out this morning with the rest.

    I feel my life is getting back to somewhat normal......LOL whatever normal is. I am getting my routine down, and making a plan. I know KARMA will and has gotten me in one way or another.

    Have a wonderful weekend and Happy Quilting.

    Congratulations CHQ. 6 pounds is great. I have got to get back to exercising. My weight loss is stalled and everything is geting soft. I was going to the gym or walking pretty regularly for a while and could definatly see and feel the difference on my body. I help coach a program called Girls on the Run at school. It teaches about being and eating healthy and self esteem. I of course don't run but in a couple of weeks they will run a 5K and I will walk it. This will be my 4th year and my goal is to go a little faster each year. Hope I can do it this year. I bring up the rear and watch for any girls who have trouble running it or anything else. The girls really enjoy it.
    Thanks for the compliments on the quilt. I am really happy with how it looks. I too have many UFO's. I have been making myself finish a bunch of them before I can start what I really want to do. I have a bargello I had hoped to start this summer, looks like it will be next summer now. I still have several more UFO's I need to do. I have a quilt that has been sitting for at least 6 months that just needs the binding hand sewed.
