    That reminds me of Lewis Black. I LOVE Lewis Black! If you're easily offended or don't like bad language, you might not wanna click this link, but he's hilarious even if you could bleep him out...

    "It was the coldest winter ever....I have not been able to complete a sentence in my own head!" Oh, and he talks about how he travels a lot, and he'd be performing in Chicago and the blizzard would hit, then he'd fly home to New York and the blizzard would hit again! One of my favorite comments by Lewis Black about the cold has to do with the US government doing a public works project to build a wall across the border with Canada "BECAUSE THAT'S WHERE THE COLD AIR COMES FROM!"

    I just got back from my day in Columbus, GA. It was a day of highs and lows. I did a little work, then I went to Joann's and got the fabric I needed to finish my home decor swap project (I'm SO thankful they had it that I took all they had!) I was about to leave when I was pulled to the book section. You all know this is a dangerous area. I did find a lovely book full of beautiful runners though! Let's see, where did I go next? Sonic, for a cherry limeade. Then I stopped at the cemetery where my oldest son (time to buy new flowers for the next visit!) and one of Dusty's best childhood friends are buried on my way home...that was the low, obviously. Stopped at the store and got stuff to make Swedish meatballs on my way home, so the man's happy!

    Now I'm off to clear out my email before sewing and food!

    table topper

    Lynnie it does take a special ruler a 22.5 squedge ruler. There really isn't anything that is the same angle that you could make work, trust me I tried. But I do like the mat on my kitchen table instead of a runner so it will get some good use. This is the one I sent Liz22 and made her a couple of hot pads to match. I just like to change them out for the month or the holiday. Do it all over the house.Name:  DSCF1211.JPG

    I think I ended up using 12 fabrics in your runner Nancia. No worries, there's a few days left. I'm still debating whether to try to do some FMQ on yours with my new foot and total lack of skills or let you do it, lol.

    fmq is fun. a wonderfully kind and wise quilter told me to find a quilting design i like and get good at it by using it whenever i can. i also like to make up my own designs based on the piece. then i try to relax and just go for it. it's never perfect but it holds the whole thing together and that's the point of it, and to have fun, of course ! i am using 5 fabrics at least in your runner.

    Well, thing is, there's a particular pattern that your runner screams for, and I'm honestly not sure if I'll be able to pull it off. So, if you get it and it's still only minimally quilted, that's why.

    D'M, I too love cherry limeades from Sonic but don't get close to one very often. Jaba, your squedge mat is so pretty. You do nice work. (But I have never seen anything really bad on this board.) I am so ready for spring so looking forward to getting a spring runner/topper. Perhaps in another month it will be warmer. Until then, I am thankful I have a warm house and a computer that I can check in on all my neat far-away friends on this board.
    She who dies with the most fabric, didn't sew fast enough!

    we should start a club, the sonic sewists. i love the cherry limeades! we lived in dallas and there were three places that had cherry limeades. so we did a consumer test of our own and went from store to store trying the cherry limeades. sonic won, hands down! i missed them when we moved to philly. a couple of years ago 2 sonics popped up well within driving distance! i thought i had died and gone to heaven! the closest one closed last year. they just never could get anything right. even the cherry limeades were messed up-- no cherries, only 1 small lime wedge and very little taste. well, what could you expect? these poor people didn't know what everything was supposed to taste like. even the frito pie was wrong! so sad. whenever i go to dallas my kids swing by the closest sonic, thus insuring i will be a well-behaved and happy camper! now, i have discovered rita's water ice! mmmmm, yummy! pretty soon we will have free day, where you can get a free water ice. it's their opening tradition. it isn't sonic, but it is good!

    I'm working on it, but it's causing a bit of cussing at the moment!! I think it's time to put Jack (the ripper) away for the night, and go to bed! When you are doing just as much ripping as sewing...

    Oh Jan I love that spring mat! I am feeling daisys lately. Everytime I see a daisy fabric I want it. No clue why never been excited about daisys. I love carnations, they smell pretty, a little spicy and they last for ever. Never seen a carnation fabric that said buy me buy me. Now I need daisys The patriotic star mat you made me is perfect. I like the size you can easily put a pretty vase in the middle or in my case a bowl of candy that rarely keeps candy in it (dh). everyone is going to want one of those.

    Today is going to be a great day. My dh will go fishing, I will sew, the sun will shine a balmy 54 today I believe windows and doors wide open. oh yeah .. went to bed after watching the fox come eat some snacks I put out for my skunks and woke up to a bunch of deer in the front smunching on the bird seed I put out for the turkeys. wonder what I can bait today and catch something completely different in my yard? feed the stray cat and end up with a bear? yikes.

    oh oh Nancia, once when I was young, in shape and well putting on my jeans. I had panties on and bent over to pull them up when I hear my little boy who is 4 say I am not going to laugh. I turn around and say uh and why is that. he says it wouldnt be polite to laugh. i say. oh ok. what are you not going to laugh at? he says cause you got a big rear (he used a b word). I say oh well yes laughing would not be polite. he says ok and waddles off in his fathers cowboy boots which are above his knees. I stood there and thought great now I am FAT. shoot. how to rain on my parade kid.

    And last, yes I worried a bit less when the boys came in late over my daughter. That said I was a royal wench when it came to you will be in the house at midnight. They all croaked at that one. I said what my dad said which was you can get in just as much trouble at 11 as at 1 so you will be home when I say. Period. They called if they were going to be any minutes late and knew they were still in trouble. I don't regret it either. Can't wait til they have kids and let them all go do whatever they want whenever they want. ha ha. wont happen. You put so much into them to raise them letting them go be stupid is not an option I think.
