    Ha! Brat, put me in the summer pile please! I just found my table runner pattern on the internet! Now I'm in limbo again . . . waiting on my partner to get colors. Machine is still in the garage. Looking like we're hitting 100 degrees on Monday. I'll be sewing EARLY in the morning (garage is still cool). Trying to get my gd home where she belongs . . . and get my sewing room back (with AC).

    Found my first hairy desert scorpion just strolling through my kitchen like he owned it. Tried to schew him out the door with an envelope and the stinker chased me all around the kitchen. Every time i pushed him with the envelope he came back at me. Have to start wearing bigger shoes. Just had my flip flops on and he was too big to squish with wimpy shoes. He's gone now though.

    yeah Arizonakat you cant move them you have to just squish the living daylights out of them. I loved my bug man when I lived there. After three months we only had one more scorpian/spider come in the house for the next 2 yrs. I think they are soooo worth it. I am not so much a bug lover. let them run free! OUTSIDE. The bug man however did not stop the little snakes from sneaking in. I used to have to broom those one's out of the house.

    On another note: I am searching for a few pieces of lemon fabric. say 6.5 to 10.5 inches. willing to trade .. something for some if you have a piece let me know!!!

    Sikesjj. I think try to wait for your machine. Its too frustrating to work on that when you know every single stitch is a is this the last one that works moment. I hate getting that snarled thread out from underneath.. drives me bonkers. they end up looking like some eyelashes gone wild. ugh. and it reeks havoc on your fabric. If need be your partner can be sent a shout out about being late a tiny bit. I think they are pretty quick at mailing your machines to you now a days.

    Kat you dont have to wear less wimpy shoes what you need is a sneaker in every room and be prepared to do one good swack. Thats how I did it half the time. the rest if the shoes on your feet are right go for it.

    People out here keep a can of Aqua Net hairspray close. It actually "glues them in place" till you can decide what to do with them. I was out :-(

    When I lived in Arizona (my kids went to Red Rock High School) we just killed those suckers. lol I would hate to hair spray them to the carpet or kitchen getting that glue is awfully hard to off all the stuff. yuck.

    OK I am here to say if your not finished with your runner please look at your calendar. There are only so many days left now before the 1st of May comes around and you need to be mailing. All of you said you could make that commitment please do your best to finish so your partner can receive their lucky table runners!

    Either I'm sure would be pretty. I'm just trying to keep up with what the different fabrics/themes the people in the swap like. Is it color wine or wine motif?
    Main fabric in tablerunner or tablemat should be something with wine motif on it, and the coordinating fabric used to match the focus material. Wine one can be machine embroidered or fabric with wine motif on it, Coordinating can be wine color, green color, any color that will match wine motif or embroidered fabric. But one made with just wine colors would be fine too. I'm not picky would love whatever my partner would send me. Is this more clear to you berryberry.

    I get it now. Thanks for spelling it out for me.

    I can't wait to see some pictures of the runners. I guess next step is swap partner names first. Then, pictures of the fabrics picked. Progression pictures too?
