    I have made these. They are super easy but are kind of hard to get the dish inside.

    [QUOTE=Elisabrat;5809554...I have this stack of about hand sized pieces bright red and white polka dots. the stack is about five inches high. what would you do with all that stuff if it was yours? also a smaller stack about 2 inches high of a muted moss green with white polka dots dime size dots I might add. these are cut outs from designer childrens clothing the neck piece. its a lot of polka dots and I love dots but I am stumped. I figure I can toss about 1 inch of the dots into my christmas quilt. the rest....I can get up to I think 4" squares out of each one or 2.5 x 4.5 out of it ..Sandy any ideas....[/QUOTE]
    I think I would incorporate all those polka dots of various kinds into a baby quilt and pull the solid colors out of them to make sashings or solid blocks or make HST from them with half dotty/half solid. Easier to think about if I had a picture but that is first thought off top of my head. Elisa, your postings always make my day. You are such a positive person. Wish I knew you in person. You are always so upbeat and bring us all good feelings.

    I think I added to my profile but just to make things easier for my home decor swap partner..I am easy to sew for. I will love anything you make. Our home is very relaxed. Not much color coordination...just a comfortable place to come, sit down and visit in. I do have one wall space for a wall hanging. I only have three but would like more for variety. 15" x 22" max. I like autumn colors, anything to do with cats and most quilt designs. Not so much into modern art type things and like bright colors. Definitely into scrappy. I also use table runners but small ones since our table is not large...not bigger than two place mats long. Hope that helps. Happy sewing to all.

    Well living with remodeling is so hard on a relationship. My childrens father is a Structural Engineer and was totally all about remodeling, new redo, reredo build build build. I was about cozy farm old house. I think he finally has the house he loves and me I am in peace knowing I do not have to live with that. It is such a pleasure to meet you guys I am sorry you feel pushed into posting it would be my fault at that. I have so often received the dont care suprise me that it has made me want to cry. I can get creative but the nerves get going and I think oh no what if oh no this wont and they wont and well its not pretty ladies its not good at all. I am the queen of second guess yourself. So thank you for writing a post here. I think all of us appreciate it.

    978 you certainly have a load on your shoulders. I had a transplant last April after three months in the hospital and now am in dialysis for kidney failure. I feel for you.. I use my sewing as my salvation. The group here supports me and my goofyness and well it takes me away from thinking of lifes problems. I would venture to guess that a whole lot of quilters here use it for therapy also. I figure its cheaper than a shrink and well you get something when your done. I wish you peace dear lady. I have someone here for me. I am sure he feels just like you at times. He goes fishing. We dont always say it but to those who stand by us.. well you mean the world to us. Its nice having someone there when you flop over and dont want to play anymore. It makes a huge difference.

    Onto sewing havent started but have this absolutely fun fabric I have saved.. and saved.. and well good time to use it I think. I just finished one wall hanging today have quilted a second wall hanging and now am going to bind it and do hand stitching on that later after dinner. In the mean time a boom block that came late to me needs to be sewn. other than that twiddling my thumbs today. Good to hear from you guys again. thanks for posting.

    last oh oh that hall is screaming wall hanging.

    Here today... why what a lucky bunch we are.

    Nancia I have one thing to say to that.. AHHHHHHHH! egad my list is huge as it is. the old bucket list lol consists of quilting only. Been there seen that now I only have to sew. Ah what a horrible thing huh? AND YOU CANT STEAL MY CHOCOLATE and I will post that on every swap you watch me. Nancia is a chocolate thief and a fibber. She thinks she can waltz in and snag my candy girl I have handcuffs and I am not affraid to use them.. first I have to take them off before i share

    I did great yesterday hope and pray today is a sewing day but if not there are two whole entire days coming up for me to sew with only one obligation. That is ok I can do that. I get my chest cathater spell check removed on Monday. I have had that stupid thing since April. AND THAT MEANS.. NO MORE SINK BATHS I GET TO SHOWER!!!!! omg guys try washing your hair in the sink for moons on end, you get a wash cloth to wash up in the sink and not a single shower for 9 months. This is like better than Christmas. I will use up the entire tank of hot water the first time. It is going to be magnificent. (the little things in life to thrill one huh?)

    hey, miss elisabrat! there ain't no party if you is not invited! i will share candy and other sweets with you, if you will share with me! i am not a liar, well, that is, i don't actually lie, it just looks like it 'cause i refuse to be wrong... a very narrow tightrope! i was up all night sewing, sooooo much fun, and then couldn't sleep when i did go to bed, so this afternoon i had a sandwich and laid down my old head, and clunk, i went to sleep! now, i'll probably spend all tonight sewing and be in the same boat again. i must have been born at night! my natural rhythm is to be a night owl. i get lots done when the rest of the world sleeps!
    i have been picking up tips on quilting, the actual sewing the top, batting and backing. ricky timms says, first it depends on what you CAN do, like if you're good with swirls, do swirls, and you know, it's very free-ing. i love to make patterns and designs as i go. it's like drawing pictures of anything you want! it is so much fun, so i thought i would share with everyone the essential truth--- do what you can! if you are good at straight lines, do those! if you are having fun with spirals, do those! no need to do feathers and medallions if those aren't what you're good at! you can always practice those on paper to get good at them if you want, but there is NO quilt goddess that says you Have to do one motif or it's not quilting. This is what we do for fun, soooooo...... do what you can do and have fun!

    Elisabrat, you don't stink. I had to work a bit today, then go fabric shopping, then go to a birthday party, and I just finally got home.
