    I received the most generous RAK today!!!! Robyn aka Arizonagirl Rak'd me with five gorgeous cuts of tone-on-tone pastels for my quest of making 6000 Yo Yo's for the guest bed coverlet! Robyn these are so lucious I hope the picture shows just how beautiful they are! Thank-you so much, I'm so delighted they are truly eye candy.

    With all that you are going through to think that you found time to RAK me, dear heart....your generousity and kindness is so wonderful...thank-you so, so much.

    I heard on the news that you had a lot of snow in your neck of the woods????I hope you are warm and toasty at home!

    Who else collects something? I know Louise collects coffee mugs, I collect twilight memorabilia, slhughes collects postcards, right? I was searching to see if there was a thread where our various collections were discussed...I'm traveling this week and it would be a good time for me to know these things lol

    i will make a notation on my rak list that you would like do-dads also. i am going to a really big conference in a coupla of months so i will try to get plenty of goodies.
    Oooo I understand, I love this thread, I love going back through and reading what you all like I was thrilled to get the new rak list with a few more names I know the more time I spend on here, the more ill get to know you guys and what you like

    My daughter and I are on our way to Orlando but I'll be on here and there in my down time while she's taking a turn at the wheel lol. We are going to Islands of Adventure tomorrow (our favorite place) to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter! I'm so excited! We love Harry Potter, Twilight and The Hunger Games!!

    Then we are going to Middleburg (close to Jax) to spend a few days with my brother and his family.

    I'm very excited to see my nieces and nephew! He has 4 girls ages 13,12,9 and 2 and a 1 year old little boy!

    It will be our first time meeting my little nephew, Jack.

    And yes, Louise, the board has been a little flakey today. Maybe too much traffic on this chilly Sunday afternoon.

    I've been spending (too much) time sorting through my bookmarks. What a bunch of wonderful stuff I've found. I've been thinking of putting all the pdfs for patterns onto a disk once I've gotten them all organized - anyone else do this? If so, would anyone eventually like a copy?
    I would LOVE a copy! I've been wanting to do the same but haven't had time.

    I'm so glad they got there and that you liked them. I can't wait to see it all finished. No snow where I'm at but lots of rain which is causing lots of pain in my back. Enjoy the fabric.
    Disabled does not mean unable.
    Love to all, Robyn

    Thank you again Mr. & Mrs walk-n-roll

    I ABSOLUTELY LOVE the mug.

    Will post pictures soon as my camera decides to play nice with

    Or until I become UNlazy and pull out the BIG Nikon D70s (to
    much camera for little quick pics).

    Hopefully my hubs can figure out what is wrong with my little
    point and shoot Nikon.

    You are very welcome. I am so glad you like it. I was impressed myself. I told my DH to only buy one if it was a really nice one. I to thought he did a good job. Enjoy!

    i like to receive fabric scraps to complete my two postage stamp quilts. ooh and i like refrigerator magnets of the various states, places of interest (statute of liberty, mona lisa, liberty bell) and of foreign travels(i have ones from prague, spanish bull, china, phillipines, scotland). and, well i like cat themed things and fabric for my future cat quilt and uh... shoes, everything shoes, shoe fabric, shoe figurines, shoe notecards, shoe calendars, shoe candle holders, shoe candles, a shoe quilt (in case someone wants to make one for me), shoes, shoes and more things shoes!!!!

    okay so i like luv shoes. my mother did this to me as she was a shoe lover and i saw all of the shoes she purchased when i was growing up. i had my own collection going at one time (over 100 pairs) but i have downsized now. but as soon as i get more room, there will be more shoes!!!!! yay!!!!!!!!!!!

    donna are you talking about the little skeins of thread? i see these all the time when i go to estate sales. i really dont purchase much because i do not hand embroider. i believe that i have a coupla skeins left from a bag i purchased at one estate sale. i was enclosing skeins in my secret pal swap packages and sometimes i use some to whip stitch my pincushions. lemme know and when i prepare this next batch of raks i can send you some.

    robyn i know that i had a miniture set of postcards from niagra falls around here somewhere but when i was cleaning out the desk drawers where they had been for years, i could not find them. i am really doing some de-cluttering, uh i mean spring cleaning as i am really trying to clear up some space and share all of my "findings" with you all. i found another handful of conference do-dads today to share. if i find those mini postcards, they will be coming your way.

    hey i did find some skull pencils and i believe someone in this rak group collects skull stuff. i have some skull pencils waiting for a place in your home.

    Hi Teresa
    everything here for quilting is dearer here than in the USA and a lot of things you can get we just can't get here. It's only in the last two years or so that we can get freezer paper but we still have to order it from the UK. Fabric seems to be a lot cheaper on your side than here. Any new small type gadgets or rulers are a lot dearer here and take a lot longer before you find a shop that stocks them

    Well Linda, what would you like to have that we have? Pretty much anything or is there something you'd kill to have (metaphorically speaking of course)? I'm curious because we here in the US seem to take a lot for granted that you all in other countries don't have. Do you all have 45mm blades???

    linda are you using the freezer paper for foundation piecing or something else? if it is for paper piecing there are so many other options like telephone book pages, kids school note paper, some use newspaper, used dryer sheets, inexpensive muslin. there are so many recyclable options for foundation paper. plus we can buy small boxes of wax paper here at the dollar store to send.

    linda is there something in particular that you are looking for?

    contact quilty-louise as she is the keeper/originator of the rak list.
