    All right, sewnso - so glad you are on the train. And all the other new arrivals, welcome.

    All the postings look great. I think I am going to have to start another one, with brighter colors, because all the blocks look so great. I still like my Christmas runner, but I like the brights, too. You have all made such great choices.

    Ladies, I want very much to catch the train. I haven't been on quilting board for about two years (life interfers with my plans). I spent about 5 hours last night going through the mystery quilt messages and I think I am ready to jump back into quilting and a table runner sounds great. I am going to try to post a picture, although I've never done that so don't know how successful it will be. I looked carefully at all the beautiful fabrics everyone has selected and then went through my stash and found both Christmas and autumn fabrics. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

    Help! Couldn't figure out how to post pic, did a search on how to post picture, didn't find anything. What am I missing?

    JannieGrace, look for the icon in the quick reply box when you are entering your text. It looks like a little picture and says insert image when you click on that another box comes up and gives you the option to get picture from your computer or from URL. If you photos are on your computer choose that option and upload your picture, there are size restraints on the image so you may have to reduce the size before you upload it to the site. Hope that helps

    Thanks, Laurie L, but I can't find the icon. I have other icons, but nothing that looks like a picture or says insert image. I must not be looking in the right place.

    When I type in the quick reply box, it is empty. Is it supposed to have icons in it? The only place I find icons is under the Go Advanced button, but none of them is an insert image button. Is there maybe somewhere that I need to personalize this?

    jannie, if you have some kind of a photo editing program, like I have on my HP, you need to have the largest value, whether it is verticle or horizontal, to bew a maximum of 640 pixels. You can then upload successfully. Good luck.

    When you Go Advanced, goto Manage then browse, and you can upload from there as long as the pix isn't too large - which is why you need to resize. you then close that window and post your reply with the pictures

    In the Quick Reply box, there's a row of icons on the right. The one you want is the middle one of that group.

    Judy,
    did you rethink your fabric assignments? I think the B and C in this weeks instructions were A and D originally?

    Yay! Success. Thanks for your patience and responses. Picture still seems large, but I resized to 600 pixels.

    I don't have any icons in my quick reply box. Would it have to to do with the version of Windows that I am using? (7)

    Went to visit my daughter in Ft Wayne, IN yesterday. While there she and I took a few hours out to go to "Gathering of Quilters 2013" show... they had some beautiful 1920's and 30's quilts on display! Corned beef cooking on the stove, NASCAR on the tv, putting a load of laundry in and then off to start this mystery quilt! Love all the pics posted so far!

    It will be my Birthday table runner, of which I am sure I will give to her! The cycle of life ya?
    Marybeth, Are you going to any of the "Block Party" events while you are in Portland? I kind a wanted to do that.

    Alright I have made an executive decision regarding my fabrics. I HATE BINS> too many layers. I need shelves or something so you can just go to see what you have. There I said it. two bins cant find crud in them unless I basically empty them again and getting tired of that too. they are too big. yuck. then my book shelf I am using is too small argh. I need like those long closet shelves all across could put things in basket, stacked folded easy to see by the selvege. I have to say it is making me royally grumpy. do I fold or sew? cant sew without folding how to find things. maybe I will just nap and forget it all. heck with it. (like that would solve anything).

    i've found the easiest thing is to use an old set of drawers, then you can one or two colours per drawer... works for me...
    i have 2 sets of drawers, one for fq's etc, the other is used for jelly rolls, charm pks & layer cakes etc, and other things...

    JannieGrace, to get all the icons, go to 'Forum Actions' in the aqua bar near the top of the page. Choose 'General Settings' from the dropdown box. Scroll way down to the bottom, choose 'Enhanced Interface WYSIWYG Editing'. Save changes and come back here to see if you have 15 icons with the picture third from the right.

    Linda, you just confirmed my fear that I don't have enough contrast. I have a different print but I hate cutting a small amount off yardage until I know what a need it for. I emptied the bolt so I can't run back for more. Did you find the posting about Mango Salsa batiks? I posted it right after you asked. Mango Salsa seems to have quite a bit of yellow.

    Darn, I have time to cut today - what to do? What to do?

    I have a yummy cake in the fridge I'll share - white cake in a 9x13, jello poked in after baking, topped with frozen raspberries and the rest of the raspberry jello, then a thick layer of almond flavored pudding. the Coolwhip and nuts go on soon.

    The HSTs posted so far are very pretty. I think I want at least 2/3 of them.

    I did find the mango salsa.. still bores me. Thanks for looking it up. Found a bunch called sunshine in ebay where I said it wasnt and well not sure if its too bold. They wanted brown. Mango salsa is sorta cream/brownish with peach but this is my new NIECE not some frog I am making them things for. Speaking of which the outfit they chose to send pics of new baby she is in a green frog baby onsie (kid you not it has frog eyes on the toes) and then a moss brown hat. oh so.. frog like.

    I just did my small pieces of fabric. part to donate part to share with a fellow quilter here and part to keep. ok, that takes care of.. 1/3 of the stuff. now the bigger things. the ones I cant figure out where to stack them. I want organization. I am the queen of organize it. then mess it up again. then I get frustrated and give it all away I get so grumpy. oh well one day at a time. I need to hit the bigger fabrics however to make a new combination of a/b fabrics. argh.

    I used my A and B fabrics for the 3 1/2 inch squares and B and C for the second part. Is that correct or should the 2nd part be from A and D?
