    Havplenty, you mean you have not started the first part yet!( VBG) You being from the Show Me State, I guess the rest of us will have to show our quilts to get you going.

    Gosh I know the third part will not come until sometime in next week's mail and I want to work on it NOW.
    okay so i put all of my postage stamps quilts stuff away, cleared my table and i am determined to get started on parts 1 & 2 before part 3 comes out. all of the work will be done in part three for sure.

    Wow! I'm so pleased with myself because I finished Step 2 today. Unusual for me to be running on time. I even had time to go back and work on a stash buster quilt. Waiting for the third part mystery magazine to arrive in the mail--- which I hope comes before it's on the news stands.

    My quilt magazines always arrive a week or so after the same magazines are on the news stands.

    I believe they do. I know I had bought my 2nd step mag before my subscription arrived by a couple of weeks; but, then I don't always get my mail in time for the sales, either....if at all!

    Well that stinks I subscribed for a couple reasons 1) So I don't forget to get the magazine 2) thought it would come sooner

    Oh well almost finished with step 2 - this is rare for me also to be on track... LOL

    I checked the McCall's website and it shows the May/June issue. We should all be receiving the new issue shortly. The blog shows a picture of the finished quilt. Very pretty.

    I check the grocery stores a couple of times a week, just in case. I'm going to try to restrain myself from buying if it's there. I have two copies of this last one as it is and don't need any more duplicates, but just couldn't wait the last time I saw it at WM...no patience, the older I get, the less I have! LOL

    Oh sure tempt me...... hhhmmmmm...... hey how did the finished quilts already get to the blog since the Mag isn't out yet ? You would think they would at least wait until the mag hit the shelves ...... Last time I also had 2 issues as I bought one at the store then subscribed and they sent me one in the mail.....

    Isn't Sherri's one of the sample color ways in the 1 st mag...who I believe works on the mag? Now that I see the finished quilt, I'm not in a rush to get my copy. It's a lovely quilt, but I don't think my color combinations are going to work. I was trying to work out of my stash.... I guess I can always donate it to the shelter--- or make new doggie beds. LOL

    At least you will be able to use it for Halloween.... When do you suppose I can use one that will probably look like ( is there such a word as 'pukey') somebody was sick all over the place? Think I'll go to bed now. Maybe I can dream it in better colors.

    I'm going to WM tomorrow and will check to see if it is there. I think I bought the first one at either Food Lion or Safeway, can't remember......but will check there also. I think the 2nd one was out in the racks before the date for displaying was up.

    BTW, Sharon, I love your pansy fabric. My pansy's are in full bloom here. We've had such a mild Winter, which I am very thankful for. It made life much easier for me here on the farm, and I didn't tear my body apart for the first time in 5 yrs. Just have to get up the nerve to schedule my back surgery..........UGH!
