Welcome to the Quilting Board!
Well I am very sorry to hear about the people who have been "burnt" in other swaps. Its not right and I will hope that everyone participates. I now Rhonda's wall hanging swap she has you write her and say your done THen she puts those people in the send to this person at the very end. This way in theory no one is burnt. Probably a very smart way to go. or partners as well you talk back and forth, they dont talk to you send emails.. then dont send. Reduction in non receipt? I personally send. if i get something back I am pleasantly suprised. if I don't its not the end of the world. it reduces my internal stress tremendously if I let it go the second it leaves the house. done.
I am working on quilting again today. A real day for me tada! and its the last sunny sunny day for a while so i will take it. My table I work on faces outside into the park so I can see the turkeys and deer wander by and the squirrels playing while i sew. I love it. Wish we had more sunlight streaming through but the redwoods are so tall we simple have oodles of forest shade. filtered light. lovely if your a photographer especially first thing in the morning. the trees simply glow on one side highlighting the bark turning it a golden red. I love it. the ground cover is a vibrant green.. then the sun rises and all turns to beige and a medium dark green. funny how light changes things.
Here today... why what a lucky bunch we are.
Sounds beautiful!!!! I would love to see some pictures! We had a dusting of snow on Thursay and yesterday the family and I were outside in short sleeve flying a kite. It was beautiful, but really windy which is nothing new to Oklahoma City. It is so windy today I had to hold onto to the little ones so they wouldn't blow away. I went to the gym, now I am going to clean, I am not real good at balancing projects and house, I get very absorbed in my project. Hope everyone has a great day!
What is your favorite color Elisabrat?
Look what the "Quilty Fairy" sent to me today! This was totally unexpected and unnecessary, BUT.... SO well loved already by me! So I'm keeping it! It looks just like my "Spooker Kitty" Well I guess it really could look like anyones solid black cat! lol But this one is mine! I was so thrilled today to open the package and pull out this beauty along with other goodies! (Actually some brat thought that I needed an extra goodie since a package in another swap was not received)
Did I say how much I love this little Kitty?? I LOVE IT I LOVE IT I LOVE IT!
Thanks a ton to the Quilty Fairy! I owe you!
I LIED! It was the DQ ANGEL who sent me this gorgeous kitty quilt! LOL
well that was fast my dear lady. and your cat looks exactly like that one (almost anyways stretched all over the furniture) I hope you like the egg fabric. reminded me of well.. your girls. lol. your welcome. now you can go trade dq's again with confidence that someone will be there if things dont work. thank krystyna. she is the one who asked me for help. I am on a roll wanting to do a chicken quilt but probably a like four patch chicken wall hanging would be enough too. Black background with say hot colors for chickens fuschia, gold, purple, aqua.. you know ..realistic ones. or maybe just a red/black/white chicken with barn fabrics and then maybe some of that chicken mess fabric and .. where would i put that? I have no clue. good thing my life is too busy for one more project. then I want of course that owl quilt maybe I only need a couple months of it make four but two of each.. will get the same concept at least. and it will read cute regardless.
oh oh and also they have an angel quilt like the angels not so much the heads. any ideas how to make them a tad less ..huge and maybe a bit of hair and two dots for eyes not a face.. these have like wooden ball heads and nothing else. transformers is what I need! it was at the same site that we all looked at the owl quilt. fat cat patterns I think?
Here today... why what a lucky bunch we are.
For those who have been following the discussion about the owl quilt (called "Whoo Knows?") BOM on Fat Cat, I contacted the site/pattern owner and she's agreed to let us use the pattern for the swap. She's also offered to sell the full pattern at a reduced price to participants for the first 30 days, if I can get the swap approved by our site admins here. Anyone who comes in late will have to either buy the pattern in full or if they come in during March, they can pay the $5 to download this month's block and can keep up with us for the rest of them.
So! I'm going to email PatriceJ and see if she'll let me post the swap. With this one not over yet, she may say no until this one is over. I'm just not sure. If so, if there is someone else willing to back me up and do the first couple months until this swap is over, I'll gladly pitch in & help.
In the meantime, if you even think you might be interested, head on over to this page and download this month's block before it's too late!
OK, scrap that. Because there is a potential for any cost, we can't do it as a swap on here. Oh well, all I could do was ask. Sorry ladies.
Oh QuiltingKrazy, that's so cute! I'm a cat lover too.
