    Very nicely done indeed. Hey Dee (Dream56) I don't see your picture up here yet....how about a progress update?

    For those of you who didn't know, I was partnered with Dream56 in a swap. She made me the most wonderful and gorgeous tote bag and we got to know each other. of course that means I get to bug her now that she's here too. (grins) She kept me on my progress updates (as well as ConnieQuilts) so now it's my turn to keep track of her updates.
    Now that you mentioned this, I always thought that this board is great but sometimes I'd like to be able to know more about the person behind the project and what other things she has done and how she has made progress and it is very easy to get distracted by all the other projects, pictures, etc. I think that on every project there should be like a partnership just to have somebody to check progress and somebody else that checks your progress. Like a mentoring thing without the presure of being a master on the art.. Did I make my point?
    sorry English is not my first language and at times is difficult for me to express deep thoughts!

    Oh, I am VERY excited....I got home to my order from Connecting Threads, and here are my fabrics finally so I can begin the center block!!! The gold is from a local fabric shop. I didn't find any "gold enough" on Connecting Threads, but I think it blends in very well. The background is very sandy looking, but the color didn't come through real well in the photo.

    Can't wait to start this on Friday night...I have something else to work on till then. I'll put up photos as I start it...I'm SO EXCITED!!!

    Third from the left is MUCH more purple than it shows up!

    That's one of the things that I like about the partner swap. We make a project and send it to our partner. We chat throughout the whole process and get to know the person you are sending too. March swap isn't approved yet but you are free to join us if (no WHEN) it is. It will be listed under Quilting in the New Year - March 2011.

    That being said, if you want to correspond/send PMs to me, I'll be more than happy to add another quilting friend to my list and check on progress, etc.

    I am sure we can keep you on track too. Are you joining us in this project?

    Bonni and I got to know each other in Quilting in the New Year Swap. It is a very good get to know your partner well type of swap. Maybe you could join us in March.
    Was typing the same time as you Bonni - I would be willing to take on someone else too if needed.
