    dont know where you get your halfway young lady but I say we arw two thirds through which means drum roll.. its almost feb. its almost any holiday in my books and well not too many between now and then so i just fast forwarded. I am already on March in my head you see I stupidly promised my daughter a monthly holiday gift to mail to her. she is 21 and just starting out. she loves holidays like her mom so I not only have to think them I have to make them and mail them to arrive just at the first of the Month hence my stupid rush for the holiday fabric! lol big mouth it seems to be kicking my rear right now. thankfully come July first I am done. it was a twelve month gift. phew! race with me will you guys! wait slow down!! hufff hufff SLOW down. my mind she works fast these fingers not so much.

    Linda, did you make a quilted valentine gift from your FQs for your daughter? Share the picture, we want to see too .... it's fun to see what others receive, almost as good as receiving the gift too .....
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    Your hubby did a great job on the dresser/now fq storage chest...My dh is pretty handy that way...I have my Great-grandma's (Ma) Singer treadle machine in the original cabinet...dh has been working on cleaning the machine and getting it all spruced up for me...Ma also had electric foot pedal added to the machine, too..back in the 50's...Dh has been recovering from leg surgery he had on Nov 8th..was in cast 2 months, now in walking boot for another 6 weeks...so hopefully won't be another year before he gets it done...haha...anyways, yours looks awesome!

    Thanks Kiffee, I think so too. Am trying to learn from him how to do it more professionally. He makes custom cabinets, etc. for a living. He loves doing it so I am very grateful. He custom built all the cabinets in my kitchen last year when we redid it and has done 2 of the bathrooms. Truly my "handy" handy man.

    I got my FQs over the weekend. We were out of town and it was a nice surprise to open the mailbox yesterday evening and find the packages! Thanks to Tracibug and I'm not sure who the other one is from because there wasn't a Board name on the package but it is from a "B. Gal*****" of Florissant, MO. Thanks ladies!!! The fabrics are wonderful!

    Thanks so much everyone for your kind understanding, we hope my mom is on the road to recovery, she has been do all the doctors, has heard their opinions and suggestions, and at this point she is following their new game plan. We need to go have labs on the 24th, and I am hoping all will be well. My mom is the sweetest lady, she is 77 and is the kindest lady ever, and hurts me so when she isn't well. I love her so....I appreciate all the wonderful comments...this wonderful lady gave me life.... and I owe her the utmost gratitude...she is so funny and we have the most fun we we go out and do things....so I need to keep her healthy, so we can keep doing them.. I am so sorry for all of you who have lost your moms...my heart goes out to you all......

    auntpiggylpn, your swap partner is quiltingdragon .... she sent me nearly the same set - beautiful fabrics which I am stitching into a block (just not done yet for pictures). Your other set is fabulous as well. Happy stitching!!!

    tlambing - love your beautiful valentine wall hanging! super adaptation of log block! Can I copy your design .... imitation is the highest form of flattery.
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    Most certainly, it is not my pattern. It's an old pattern called Heart to Heart by Four corners.
