Welcome to the Quilting Board!
Just checking in and letting everyone know what's going on with me...
I've been sick off and on and just haven't felt like dealing with sewing, plus I'm trying to finish up a Sun Bonnett Sue Quilt for my mom and a few other swaps, I had to go to the hospital the other night and I have Bronchitis, but feeling a little better today! I hope to finish up my moms quilt and a few other swaps and then I will start cutting the rest of my F8 and get them in the mail. I will get your blocks to you before the deadline I promise and I hope to have the rest of my F8's mailed by the end of the month...I have some of your F8's done and will be mailing them on the 15th, I'm working on them when I feel like sewing, my back is giving me a lot of pain and now I have Bronchits. Been to the hospital twice this month and to the Dr. Office twice, this month has been bad for me with the change of the weather going up and down. The weather is why I'm having issues with my back, they give me pain medicine and the darn stuff makes me sleep a lot. So I'm praying for good weather or at least stay the same...LOL
lv2sew2011...Sorry you have not been feeling well lately. This summer was bad on me healthwise, so I know how you must be feeling. Take care of yourself and heal completely before you do too much! Prayers sent your way!
Well, I wasn't able to work on my moms quilt today, some how it shifted and now I have to remove about 12 quilted rows and I just didn't feel like messing with Mr. Seam ripper today..., so I was able to finish up some blocks to send back home and finish cutting all my F8's now just got to mail them. But I don't want to get out into the weather it's like 30+ right now, until I get over my Bronchitis. Plus I don't want to give the crap to any one else....
And thanks everyone for the well wishes.

As of today I have recieved blocks (lovely ones at that) from dotcomdtcm, Rosrysue and Ok Darla. Thank you so much! I haven't recieved fabric from Lu2sew2011 yet. I have to send out pinkLotus' block. Other than that all my blocks have been done and sent out, hopefully you have all recieved them. I just quilted and bound my last boom quilt, it looks great. Its a Christmas present for one of my grand daughters. One down and 3 more to go!!! Thanks again for the pretty blocks!!!
I’ve been working on your blocks if you would like to take a look at them just click on the link below, I didn’t separate the groups, I’ve got them all posted here. I hope you like them, some already have theirs, some just got mailed today, and some will be mailed later this week.
I’m sorry I’m not getting them out faster but my health has been the pits, I’ve dropped out of a couple of swaps so I could just work on this one until I get to feeling better. Few weeks ago I slipped and fell and hurt my lower back again, then I got bronchitis and now I have a tooth that’s giving me hell, excuse my French! And back in June and July I spent over $2000.00 dollars at the dentist and I still have a damn tooth ache, so when I take the pain medication it puts me to sleep and I can sleep the day away! I’m very sensitive to pain medication.
So please be patient with me I will get your blocks to you before the dead line I’m getting about 4 or 5 done a day now that I got all other things out of the way except my mom’s quilt and I have to remove about 12 to 15 quilted rows. (YUCK) LOL And I still haven’t removed a full row yet…LOL I called my mom and told her I was mad at her quilt, and she said why and I told her some how it twisted and now the rows aren’t straight. So I told her I putting it away for a while so I don’t get mad and tear it up…LOL
Other than that I’m still ticking just not very fast…LOL
I sorry to hear all that you've gone and going through. I hope things get better for you soon!!! I didn't mean anything by what I said, I was just checking to make sure my records were right. I mess up sometimes!!! I figured if I was missing anything or what ever people would let me know. Sorry you've had such a hard time lately, but I'll keep my fingers crossed things get better soon!!!

Oh Oma7, I'm not offended at all just letting folks know I haven't deserted you! LOL I still have about 23 or 24 F8's to send out, I did send out a few yesterday but I can't remember who I sent them to, I also sent blocks home yesterday, If you have plans for the Holiday and not able to get to my F8 that's ok, I'm sure you will send it when your done. So please don't think I'm mad because I'm not! I know some people just dropped off the face of earth and with your fabric, just want you to know that's not the case here! So everyone have a great afternoon I'm going to get in the sewing room and make some more blocks. Have a blessed day!
