    Now I remember, I forgot...imagine that!?!...sucks getting old. The body went a long time ago, but the memory part is driving me nuts. I write those reminder notes and wonder where I put them, usually find them, but it might be a month later and then wonder why I wrote it....The block turned out great. I love the look of some of the paper pieced ones but I sure get frustrated trying to do it. How's your weather in Scotland this time of the year? Does it get really cold there too? Not bad here today it's 40 degrees right now and they say no snow until next week, we'll see....

    I spent a few winters in Northern England (Yorkshire and Cumbria - I *saw* Scotland from the shore of St. Bee's) and despite the fact that I'm used to much colder temps in Chicago, I found that I was far colder there than I've ever been in Chicago!! Mostly because it was always so darn damp ... the cold just seeps into your bones and stays put until about May when the sun finally comes out again!! Add to that the fact that the English just don't heat their homes the way American's do. I'm used to dressing in layers if I plan on being outside, but not when I'm sitting in someone's living room!!

    That said ... I thoroughly loved Yorkshire and Cumbria in the winter.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    I like your block Jacquie...verrryy clever. I could not come up with a plan of 6x9, only to add strips and that's not a block to me. Nice job!

    Thank you Jacquie for the beautiful block that I received today. I love the two fabrics you used along with mine. It's beautiful.

    Received a great block from ImMeMother today ... pic below. I love the subtlety of this block!!

    Note ... I just noticed that the side HST's look black - they are actually a nice dark brown print.

    Finished my LAST block today for TLambing and will try to get to the PO to get it mailed ... if not today then tomorrow.

    If there is a prize for the most pieces per block .... 169 pieces

    If there is a prize for the least number of additional fabrics used ... zero

    hee hee hee

    Teresa ... the block is slightly oversized because it's difficult to plan overall size with what I did. I'm going to leave it oversized and let you trim it down - that way you can center it which ever way you choose and you'll have nice crisp edges.

    This swap has been so much fun. I got to try my hand at a lot of different techniques and stretched my creative gene using fabrics that I would not ordinarily have used. Of course I also love receiving blocks from folks - I've been happy with ALL of them so far!!

    thank you everyone!! Mostly ... thanks again April for hosting this wonderful swap. Pretty sure I'll do another one at some point in the future.
