Anastasia ... you had better keep the chicken salad - I just gained 5 lbs LOOKING at that cake!!
Phannie ... oh no! I've never torn a rotator cuff but lived with a brother, father, and husband who have and I don't know what is worse - having the injury or living with MEN who have had the injury.
Oh I love appliqué. I may do some machine embroidery on some of the blocks that I will do. Depending on the fabric etc.

My mail box was mighty full today!! I received envelopes from: Elisabrat, jaba, moonwork and travelinggramma
I will begin working on them this weekend. :thumbup:
Generally you KEEP the scraps unless the sender has specifically asked to have them back because they are running short for their project. That is just one of the great ways to share fabrics :).
Me, though, I usually don't have any scraps left it seems with the blocks I have made in the past. In fact sometimes I have to squeeeeeeeeeze it so I had enough. I try to send a little extra in my f8 so you can have a bug or too extra :).
Hoping I have some squishies in my mailbox tonight....tapping fingers waiting.
omg my box was crawling with ladybugs... EVERYWHERE.. I think I need to give them some flowers to play on....
Good day at the mailbox today, husband is wondering why I'm getting so much mail, and why all my mail is squishy. I told him "If I told you I'd have to kill you".
Elisabrat's Peach Cocktail
Jaba's Beige with green leaf (very pretty - very much my style!)
OKDarla's Blue leaves (yes I have tons of Kona black!)
And I had received Moonwork's F8 yesterday
So I've got 1/3 of my fats so far!!
Off topic ....
Happy Birthday to Ruby boomer Buddy's Mom and a huge congratulations on her recent quilt expo with 3 blue ribbons, a best in show, a viewers choice, and ... oh another award I forgot (sorry!)!!
We have a STAR in our midst.
Squishes, Squishes.. and more Squishes. I will be up stairs tonight. I got them from: Elisabrat, jaba, moonwork and travelinggramma. Love them all......
lets see starting here and working backwards the band is starting up.. ta da da da da da dadaaaa da ta da daaaa da daaaa da da daaaaaaaa da (this is for buddys mom wow all over the place accidents happen going to accidentally send her about ten fat quarters to play with plus a few ufos with postage paid envelopes think the hint will be taken?)
that cake has ZERO calories and hey how come I wasnt invited to share just because I accidentally happened to find your ice box? its apparent I am accident prone and you cant get mad over that.. love chicken salad, allergic to walnuts so eat those and save me the rest.. and for me, calories are a non issue thing.. I can never eat the amount I have to in one day.. frustrates me to no end. I cant figure out how to eat 2k calories and not flop over from way too muchitus.. not happening. Same with 75 PLUS grams of protein, keep dreaming baby cakes, even an egg has only 5 grams do you have any idea how many eggs that is? or gross burgers? five gross big old burgers to hit the target of 100 per day.. sure uh huh. deal here: you guys chow down and count the grams let me know then I can say yes yes I did vicariously maybe but I did. Wonder if they will buy it?
April here I have been wandering around forgetting my own tail end and it is tied on tyvery much and there you are the keeper of the marbles. All rolling around in your head huh? AHAH! send them back right now. Seriously, please send them back I need a few. no noise at all inside big old whoosh sounds.. light are on.. helloooo helloooo
ok rubies fellow baubles of mine guess what! let me guess for you.. WHAT? ok since you ask.. mail box had suprises in it today!!! here it goes:
Charolette Marie - frogs and purple for the diamond group/ruby group received
jaba - pretty berries and other fab for diamonds and rubies
moonworks - lady bugs
travelinggramma - red for americana quilt received
so four not bad at all .. numbered randomly in with the others received for the other group. Think they will be done when they are done at this point. I have only 50 something to do, mailed back.. three so far. No problem keeping up at all (roll your eyes I am).
If you didnt give a special request in writing please PM me and I will write it down before I forgot it which is a good shot to happen. Noted sent, received sent etc as they come/go. Also noted next to your name what fabric received as I think its a fail safe incase for some mystery they get misplaced.. I will not send the wrong one home.
I dont need any fabric back so this way you wont kill it. lol tell me you need it back, this way I wont kill it all! let me keep it surely will use/ruin half of it.. I measur etwice, twice over.. cut.. ah heck the wrong color for piece and so forth.. getting better did one block without any troubles no redo on seams nothing last night. Slow is good for this old turkey.
enjoy your sewing.. have fun fun fun!
