    Anngel, who have you made the quilts for? Family? All are beautiful.

    Ooooh goody! Another mystery train...can't wait to see the destination (although I still need to finish this ride!) Got off this train a bit ago for some surgery on my hand and allowing it to heal--stitches out today; started cutting yesterday, using my left arm to hold the rulers and worked pretty well.

    works4me: I think it would make a great table runner!!
    AnngelAnne: love your quilts!! even the colors. I even made a quilt for my nephewurple& black!!

    Thank you. I have been talking to someone in England for 12+ years and finally got a chance to meet them two years ago. It is almost like I now have extended family, wonderful people. In amongst them are three teenage 15-17 girls so I made the quilts for the girls. Some of the first I've done.

    Don't have much of a stash compared to most people! I could cringe now at all the fabric I tossed in the early days of quilting. Did not have a clue that all those small pieces could be used. It was not until I found Bonnie Hunter a few years ago that I found out how to keep and use all those small pieces.

    Geese are finished and correctly sized (finally). No pic as still not confident with that, but am looking for some interesting company/snacks...maybe I'll meander through the train and see what's shakin'.

    Anngel, those blacks and whites are wonderful. If you were closer I would raid your fabrics.

    Ladies - 100 mini cupcakes, 2 double batches of banana bread and 2 pans of Danger Bars. I am almost done baking and I only licked the bowl once. Can't wait for next week and I can quilt again. My quilt came back from Darby - I won the free quilting and it is awesome.

    Take care - happy quilting.

    I am back home from Son's, had a great visit now ready to start sewing in the am. Taught my 14 year old grand son how to sew. He was patient with me when I went over the basics, finally he said "Grandma, I only want to make a sock puppet, maybe some other day I will want to learn how to make a quilt"! I guess I got a bit ahead of myself!

    So tomorrow the wild geese will be flying here.
    Give a smile away today, someone you meet might need one!

    And a great job you have been doing with all those pieces and your BH creations!

    We all do such nice work.
    Sure wish I was close by to be able to check it out. Do you have all the scary sound effects too? There's a couple of homes here that do similar at Halloween and Christmas ... and encourage donations to the Food Bank in appreciation.

    You can raid my stash if you wish, but those black and whites are all gone now, finished using them in that quilt and a string quilt after. Sorry. Your baking sounds wonderful, what is a danger bar?

    Thanks. I bet I take longer to put colors together than anyone I know. But I'm finally happy with this. And I am really glad I got on this train. Hoping I can do step three tonight after I get home from work. Time will tell.

    QuiltE -several items like the witches and grim reaper make sounds. I even have a skeleton in a cage that screams things like "Help. Let me outta here. I was framed I tell ya. I was framed. I want the display to be fun and engaging, not frightening. I also put out a 7 foot tall, fully decorated, black tree.

    And we give away full-sized chocolate bars. We are very popular.

    AnngelAnne: I knew it would look great, and it does. Well done.

    I started cutting my step 4 last night. Didn't get too far but still plan to have it done in time for the final leg of our train trip.

    OH too fun!!!! I love talkie-things ... and have a few, but for indoors. Of course, the cackling witch. And a black cat that screeches realistically like you stepped on its tail. He stays out all year, just for when I need something to change the pace when someone is here. OK, I confess I sometimes need it, myself, just for a laugh!! And lots of talkies for other season. The Easter Bunnies will go into their hiding spot this weekend.

    I too give away full sized chocolate bars ... the later in the night, the more you get!

    And me too, the geese will be done before Monday. I figure that I'm further north than most, so the geese are later coming home. (allthough truth be known, most don't bother flying south anymore, and stay here all winter)

    Your quilt as a tabletopper is even nicer with those china pieces sitting atop!
