    Thanks everyone for the 'neat' words. Got four more clear vue tubs today, so I can see what is in each one. Need to pick up more next week 'cause we unloaded the travel trailer, a guy wanted to buy one, but he did not want to pay what it was worth & found another bargain elsewhere which was fine with me. I was using it as a storage shed, now must organize things a bit better. Don't want to keep the old magazines any more; but find a way to store photographs, particularly senior high pictures of each of our children. Downsizing is never easy, From over 2100 square feet down to 1724 square feet...in 2005, and I am still moving slow and slower on it. Dh does not want to re-winterize it, and that stops me from ever using the trailer...hoping that the visit from four year old gs & dd will change his mind.

    Got four more blocks done for PC; going to design and go onward, so I can post them each week at the right time. I was privately PM Honchey, she wanted scraps any size of Black on Black. Only she could hit the one missing link in all my fabric collection and scraps. If you have some that you could spare, PM Honchey.

    Rain is coming 'in' from the hurricane....we hope it does not go around us...we need the rain.

I plan on having everything cut beforehand.

    I have also been saving all my little bits for her Wild and Goosey block which is appearing in Quiltmaker shortly, or so she said on her blog. That was another one that just took my fancy..
    I have her new "String Fling" Book too. There are some beautiful quilts in it! It seemed so strange to see Roll, Roll, Cotton Boll and Orca Bay in it, as I had already made those quilts. I loved Jamestown Landing and am drawn to Zuckerwatte (Cotton Candy).

    JeanieG I made Roll Roll Cotton Boll also, although I didn't put the string blocks in. It still turned out a good size quilt and my DD loved it.

    I have made several of Bonnie's quilts from her free pattern section, they make great charity quilts and use up lots of little bits.

    Mirabelle, I've looked at pictures of patterns from the book you mentioned and some of them almost make me dizzy. What color way are you and your DD using for Jamestown?

    Ggal970, my DD is making hers in Blues and cream with a hint of yellow and mine will be purple and cream with a hint of yellow. I will post pics when I have some blocks made so you can see where we are putting the yellow. Can't take the credit for the design modification it was totally DD's idea. Her young brain works differently from my old one she has been patchworking almost as long as me, started when she was 8 and she is almost 30...
