    Pm your partner to ask summer or patriotic and what colors. That should work. QUOTE=Krystyna;6047957]Question: do you all wait to see what your partner's preferences are for color or do you make a surprise?[/QUOTE]

    I have a plan for ArizonaKat, I am going with colorful horses. Anyone have any tips on paper piecing? I watched a tutorial that made it look extremely easy, so I am like "where is the catch? It can't be that easy!".

    Don't forget to ask your partner about table size because my original plan would of covered her entire table.

    Do you mean English paper piecing or foundation paper piecing? I've never tried the first despite having bought 150 each of hexagon and diamond plastic forms. If you mean foundation, make sure you set your stitch length to about half your normal setting; it helps when you go to tear the paper away.

    I don't like paper piecing at all! some love it, watch Youtube videos for ideas

    Glad to hear everyones excitement for the swap. The fabrics are so fun aren't they? My computer has been in the shop for a couple days now as was my hubbies. I am so happy at least his is back! I am watching on this swap.. I will be the group angel I think. I sure hope everyone hears from their partner soon

    Update on Jaba and Brats' grand adventures. She sews! like a wiz. I get tired watching her lol. We are having a good time if I say so myself. Sewing, wine tasting, cooking.. EATING (oh made peanut butter cookies today) and tomorrow everyone will pick me up from dialysis and we will go.. TO THE QUILT STORE!! and to lunch! and maybe to lose some cash at the casino..and home for beef and broccoli stir fry! and Korean short ribs. happy happy days Show some fabrics! I saw Jaba's finished product today for her partner. wow. Wonderful color choice and she has made something very summer pretty.

    I love my new partner Berryberry, she is a chatter box, just like me! We will have fun with this swap, thanks Brat for starting it!

    So today I was rushing around trying to stay one step ahead of a 3 year old (very very hard thing to do) and I was not paying attention to what I was doing and just about cut the end of my finger off! Well sorry to say I think I might have taught my 3 year old granddaughter some new words!

    Yowza, there is nothing that hurts like a finger pain! a million nerve endings on fire! So what did I do quick thinking quilter that I am! I took a 2 1/2 in WOF and made a tourniquet to stop the bleeding and to keep from having to get stitches, I left it on tight about 10 minutes and when I took it off the bleeding had stopped then iced it for about 20 more minutes swelling is down, but dang that sucker hurts still!

    And yes I did it to my left index finger and I am left handed! UGH

    I did not do it to get out of sewing! but maybe I can get out of typing~ ok going to get off computer and enjoy the quiet.
    Give a smile away today, someone you meet might need one!

    It is obviously to late for stitches, but from my experience they don't reattach unless its major. Buy one of those little splints for broken fingers you can get them at a pharmacy and it will help you from hittin it and keep the bandages on it. Don't use peroxide, repeated use actually damages your skin and will prolong healing, there are some really good band aids for fingertips and highly recommend those. When you change the bandage clean it up with some alcohol or soap and water (without seeing it, it's hard for me to say), and let it breathe and air dry before bandaging again. You can PM me a picture if you want. I have had several family members do the same thin and saw it quite often in nursing school. Get better soon and I am a fellow Lefty.

    Hey, would you take some pictures of the shop? I've often wondered what other shops looked like inside. I'm heading to my favorite shop-til-I'm-broke store today or tomorrow. I'll take pictures. We can do a virtual shop hop. Everybody take some pictures of the inside of your LQS for a virtual shop hop.
