I think we deserve virtual drinks for these vents so I propose tonight is a hot chocolate with grand marnier and kalua topped with whipped cream and chocolate shavings anyone else like a cup? I am sitting here ready to pour! (ok hot cocoa for the non drinkers)

    Hi everyone, hope the holidays are finding you stress free, or with less stress than usual. In January I will be starting a Quilt Along and I would love for you all to join me. The information is posted below:

    Quilt Along to start in January:
    Friday January 4, 2013
    8:30 - 9:30 PM in the chat room
    Each week there is a choice of 2 blocks, one easy and one more challenging.
    We meet in the chatroom between 8:30 - 9:30 to chat and discuss the blocks we are working on, answer any questions or to help those who need some help.
    Every 3rd week is a catch up week for those who may have gotten too busy to do their blocks.
    Pictures will be posted each week of the members finished block and at the end of the Quilt Along a picture of the finished top
    Members who are involved will vote on what blocks we work on every 3rd week for the following 2 weeks.
    Nothing other than information and friendship will be exchanged..

    This weekend I will be posting a list of the blocks that we will be working on. If anyone has any suggestions for a block or any questions feel free to drop me a line.

    Looking forward to chatting and quilting with everyone who joins..

    LOL Elisabrat, you've been on the mystery train too long! But love the the idea of your hot chocolate, sounds yummy.

    Hi everyone, sorry I have been gone for a few days, I decided to take a vacation in the hospital for 3 days... I will be in tomorrow to post a block and answer any questions that came up while I was gone. Sorry for the blip in communications everyone, certainly not what I wanted to do the past 3 days.

    Rosie I am sorry you took that vacation and hope all is well now. I think you went there for the food myself. I spent three plus months there last year and well the food gets sorta boring pretty quick. I will have to take a pass at going anytime soon again. I feel for you.

    I think I could start sewing right now ok I could sew like all the time. I do sew all the time. I pick up the house the second i get up my DH is not the most put together sort. Then I slam on clothes and look around its all good off to the sewing table. These are on my non dialysis days but that leaves me four days a week to well.. sew. I am figuring one day I might even get better at it! My stash is almost all comprised of scraps from others quilts. this is fine with me its a stash and now I would like to start decimating it into pretty little quilts. tapping fingers on my leg waiting waiting waiting I do waiting well by the way so dont mind me.

    I noticed the easy block is 9" and the challenge block is 12". Is this the plan throughout the quilt along, meaning do we need to pick one design plan (9" or 12")?

    I'm thinking of working on these totally scrappy and picking one or the other block depending on what it looks like.

    I like all one size in my quilt too. Are these blocks going to be 9" and 12 " or two different quilts we can do?

    For anyone who has asked questions I will be home tonight, we are traveling to see family again today. I am going to do my best to get in here, please bear with me since sitting is not the easiest thing right now due to my back. (reason I spent 3 days in the hospital).

    Juanita, they are two different quilts, one is easier blocks and then challenging blocks, you choose. BUT, I did change the easy block to a 12" block, I didn't even notice the original block was a 9", my fault and all fixed.
