    Buddy's mom - I can't see your sneak peek.

    I am done sewing for the weekend. All 20 blocks are completed!! My husband really likes the blocks. Next weekend I will sew all the blocks together to complete the top.

    Posted a Sneak peek for Nurse Bonnie but not for her to see!
    Need your feedback about my quilt for her.
    Could you take a look and let me know?
    :-( I wish I was a full time quilter!

    Posted another preview for Mindless in group area. Making a bit slow progress right now due to all the traveling, but I get to spend some time this weekend on it and hopefully will get a lot more of it done

    Oh Wendy....I really, really like how it's looking! All thumbs are up!! BTW: that is NOT slow progress! We actually do ​have until July! lol

    I just love this swap! I've got yours hanging on my design wall waiting for attention, & every time I walk past it, I think of you & smile. I kinda want to just keep it there for a while & not finish it just yet.
    What a great way this is to meet new friends!

    i wish I had time to play like that. guess I have to make time. I always wish a real quilter could come to my home and teach me a few things 1)my machine how dumb is that but sit here and show me all the bells and whistles. that would be lovely and eye opening. 2) teach me like sneaky quilting tricks only old time quilters know. stuff that you just do and think of course while those of us not in the know go omg duh when you show us. that is my fairy wish this day
    OK, I know this offer is late, but I will come up to that frozen forest you call home and spend a week with you teaching you how to use your sewing machine... and your Computer too if you wish! You will just have to feed me, listen to my Whiney voice as I complain about.... hummm Ok cut that last part, no complaining, but we will have to have a few shots of something... I said shots, small ones, you know the two oz variety!!! hehe... I am on my way~ I am glad you love me and know my humor is borderline insanity at times~

    your Mom does long arm? Like right around the corner from me??? Maybe I would like to meet her, and well have her do all my long arm work! How much does she charge? And btw... I am going to be headed back to Seattle on Thursday, is everyone healthy now? We really have to meet, I mean my mom lives around the corner (well sort of) from your Mom and you live right around the corner to my Daughter... It is destiny for sure!

    I have an idea! I can just house hop, go from one quilters home to the next, doing what ever it is you want done... long enough to wear out my welcome then move on to the next quilter... Hummm I have a new career any takers??

    Libby, I hope you got my PM, I am actually about 3/4ths of the way finished with your top... I came over to post a quick peek at the pattern company I am using (I stole it, the picture not the quilt) It is called Buggy Barn, won't tell you which pattern I am using but I love the whole crazy concept! I am trying to catch up on posts, on reading and seeing what every one is up to and I think I had too much coffee, no wine, none in the cupboards, dang! To wet and cold to go to the store! http://www.buggybarnquilts.com/ I took a class at the local quilt shop here in Oregon, bought the book now want to make more! I love them, but I am glad I took the class because other wise it would have had me more crazy than I already am!

    ok I can't post picture but here is the link!
