    Great job, Candi. Your painted blocks are beautiful. You are a very talented lady. I'm doing good to applique.

    Candi, ALL your blocks are wonderful! Did you use freezer paper as a mask for the paintsticks? It's so nifty!

    Mousie, we can have a party at the rear of AOTH and stuff ourselves with cheese and goodies before anyone else even realises what is going on. :thumbup:

    Yes, I started with some Hawaiian Applique pattern, modified it a little to my taste, traced it on a freezer paper, and cut a stencil out. Lots of fun, I was able to use the stencil for all four blocks....I see LOTS of possibilties. :P

    And Candi, I love the fact that they come in gold, silver and bronze metallic. Nothing like a little bling.

    HI all, I am doing the happy dance right now-----I found my camera! It has been MIA for months and I found it right where I have looked at least 6 times!
    Whew, what a relief. I hated thinking that it had gotten thrown in the trash somehow.

    Well done for finding the camera Rox - makes you wonder where it has been all this time, if you looked there that many times before. I have a great thing going here, I blame the Leprechauns for everything. I figured they weren't going to show me where the end of the rainbow was, so I might as well get my own back! LOL.

    I have some of those paintsticks, ---- somewhere---- I haven't seen them since I moved here in 2000, so they are probably buried in my attic cupboards. I expect it would be easier to buy some more, I don't think they were that expensive.

    I don't have anything new on AOTH to post as I haven't been very focused for a couple of weeks. I have a scrappy lap quilt put together hanging on my design board. The backing and batting are hanging too, waiting for the wrinkles to fall out before I baste it for quilting. I've started a New york beauty with 2 different types of circles and I can't decide where to go with it since I'm not using a pattern. And I've started making scrappy 6 1/2" blocks just to use up some scraps. To add to this mishmash, my husband brought me a painted piece of muslin and asked if I could "make" a quilt out of it. I must be nuts! (I told him I'd figure it out)

    Don´´t you just love when someone says that to you. They obviously see something that you can´t and that has happened to me. I usually end up pondering for days what to do with it. Good luck

    Happy Fall, Everyone! It's finally cooler here for us. Had some frost on the cars this morning, but it got all the way up to 66º this afternoon.

    Tomorrow begins Week #22. Block #19 is the scheduled block. Some have been calling this the "dreaded #19! ;-) It really isn't too bad. You will get a workout on making those lovely scrolls as there are 12 of them here. This is called "practice, practice, practice!" It's how we get better at something. By the time this block is finished, you may just have mastered them.

    Enjoy & Happy Sitiching!

    Kathy

    Block # 19

    Thank God, I already have that block behind me but, believe it or not I don't dread the scrolls anymore. I guess I finally got the hang of them. Or else I've stopped seeking perfection!

    Losie, I stopped asking for perfection when I realized the Lord was pointing out how imperfect we humans are. Now I just do it & am happy with the results whatever they are! However, this quest for perfection didn't have anything to do with my do-over on the AOTH blocks & made the first time. That was pure pride walking around & not liking anything about the way they looked. :x

    Ladies, for those of you contemplating the possibility of doing Little Brown Bird after this quilt (gluttons for punishment) you may not have noticed this thread:
    http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-164423-1.htm

    Do take a look at the link that shows great close ups - not of the original, but beautifully done.

    Ladies, From what I gather about the changes coming, our Blog won't be as bad as we thought it might be!!!!! YEA!!!! Hip Hip HOORAY!

    Dreamer, Thanks for scoping out the 411 for us. I think we were all really worried a lot. It isn't even wine o'clock, & I am drinking a little glass! I just can't envision a day without all my sisters! I get up at 4:45 am just so I can log on & get my fix before I head out to the prison!

    Just added the pic. No fancy crystal for me. With the carpal tunnel, I'm a plastic girl all the way!

    Yes, that's the AOTH schedule behind the monitor!

    It's Wine O'clock somewhere, isn't it?
