    we could share regular e-mail addys and do it that way. even if it's just a few of us, it would still be fun! we would need to p.m the e-mail addresses, not display them on athread as the threads are public, but the private messages are not.
    The only bad days are the ones you don't get.

    oh well good idea right? I am going to get this months pattern for me and then decide on whether to buy them all or just a few.. I know the whole thing is only so much like 20.00 but that is a lot for me right now .. at least i would have the starter month.

    I will wait to send when everyone does but am finished. That way hopefully you can do your little check chart on who has said they are ready and when you say Go dusty we will go Go! to the post office! and the photos will clog your site then with happy campers and their sweet treats. I will hope you guys are not going overboard. this is not a secret pal send everything and the kitchen sink swap. I hope not or my partner will be sad. I have made one item, its pretty and that is what I have to send. Hope it will be enough (crossing fingers).. I did not have a kitchen. (that is a clue here)..

    My new laptop came yesterday, so no work on my sewing last night. I have to say that I'd like to slap Bill Gates around a little for some of the "improvements" to Windows 8. So last night was spent on setting up the new lappy and I had an appt for a hair cut & color. Oh my, this new color I got is brighter than I planned. I'm naturally a redhead, but I've been covering up my "racing stripes" since 2001. The sample of the color I picked was a lot more brown than what it turned out on my head. I feel like Carrotop's dark haired sister this morning, lol. All of this preparation, including the new manicure with the green & gold nail polish that matches my dress, is in preparation for this formal dinner thing we're going to on Saturday. Guess I'm going to be a bit shocking, lol, or at least memorable!

    I would be up for doing a side swap with a few of you if you like. We could pick colors & do it by outside email. Swap up partners so that we swap with everyone involved. I have a couple other ideas too. If you're interested, inbox me here & we'll work out the details between us.

    Elisabrat, I will mark you down as done. I don't remember how many are in your group or who right off. Will look & let you know this evening.

    How much is her 'discounted' price? I'd like to help see if we can make this work. Such a cute quilt.


    Also... owlvamp is hosting an owl quilt block swap and there are some cute blocks being made there, though more brights than true, for any other owl lovers out there.

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!

    The discounted price was based on the swap, so I don't know if it will be available without a posted swap. So far I haven't heard from anyone for sure about doing it.

    Elisabrat, if there were secret meetings, you would know, lol.

The snow is melting nicely should hit 45 so I can even go to the post office. yahoo! someone asked my favorite color forgot to respond.. eh.. all of them? ok not a mud dirt colored person by choice. get me in a fabric store I go to the reds! the fuschias! the aquas I guess I like what I call happy colors, hot colors? not much into orange or the yellows but more warm then cold. ok I lied. I like the holiday colors lol so whatever holiday is coming up.. those are the colors I love.

    You have alot more snow than we got brat. It's just about all melted here, 1/2" here and there about all that's left. Calling for more this weekend but don't think it will amount to very much.

    Love the picture Brat - we got around 8 or 9 inches of snow last night - up this morning around six to start clearing off the driveway, sidewalks patio - etc. and then went across the street to clear off the same for a couple of neighbors - thank goodness Brian decided to get up (he works the late shift) and start the snowblower; lot of work but what a beautiful morning - perfect temps.

    Off to the salon for a sassy cut and color this afternoon - going to try something different - platinum.
    Be good to yourself - do one thing each day that makes you smile.
