  2. Gas prices!

    by , 02-23-2012 at 11:39 AM
    I live in Northern California, west of Sacramento. Yesterday AM on way to work gas was $4.15. On the way home PM it was $4.39. Won't be doing any extra going anywhere!

  5. Another black and white mini!

    This is the second one I've done from this pattern. This one is smaller, and crisper, I think. I machine quilted it. Just SITD in the center, and two lines of quilting in the border. This one is going to AAQI, probably in March.

  7. Our New Van

    by , 02-22-2012 at 02:50 PM (Rhonda's Retreat)
    It has taken me some time to come to terms with this new van. I went into the dealership just to look and possibly to trade our 2001 town and country in on a 2006 van. But we walked out with a brand new 2012 Dodge Caravan. I was just not ready for that I guess! LOL I have had to make do all my life and as my dad and my DH were mechanics driving mechanic's specials was the type of cars or vans we drove.

    A little over 2 yrs ago we got our first ever car payment. At least first one in ...

    these are pictures of Mariners Compass I did last fall. The Pictures were taken before quilting. the blocks were quilted in the ditch and yellow circle in middle of compass had rising sun quilted in it. same design on background blocks. That's my Poo-Chie doing her job as quality control. If not approved by her or Truffles, it may not be worth having spent the time quilting. ( They havent vetoed any yet.)
  9. Pass the block order

    by , 02-22-2012 at 01:09 PM
    Ok so if you want to do just one small I will assign you to the same amount of people doing yours. Like if 6 people work on yours you only work on 6 people's.
    Dotty made a good suggestion I will pm each person there order of people please print it out and put it in with the top.
    also I want all to feel comfortable or enjoy the theme of the top so I would like to know if it's a specific theme like holidays, kids,fairy's, floral,etc. this way I can match you with your choice.
