    Thank you Louise. I can't believe how cute it is and how much I want to work on it. But have to get a few of these other projects off my table also.

    Have a great weekend.

    Sorry ladies, but if anyone sent something to ND, it didn't get here.

    Have a great Sunday. Have already gotten the sewing machine going.

    Just an small update about the job I was hoping to get.

    I didn't get it and it is their policy not to disclose why.

    So back to the drawing board for job hunting.

    Everose, I know I have some somewhere. Will hunt.
    Louise, I just sent you an email with some fabulous job interview tips. This one wasn't for you, but ... the next big thing is out there, just waiting for you. I know it. I believe in you - so believe in yourself!

    Louise, my prayers are with you. Job hunting is not fun. But there is one just for you!!!!

    Krystyna, thanks for the heads up. I did find about 8 different fabrics downstairs this morning. So I am excited to get another row done. I might even cut extra and then the next organization that needs a donation will get it. Also thinking about using seasonal fabric for a couple table runners. The possibilities are endless. I so like the looks of it though. If any of you ladies have the same idea, let me know and I will send you some 5" blocks.

    Louise,

    I am sorry you didn't get that job. I believe it is THEIR loss. They don't know you like we do. Keep checking back with them periodically, something else might come up there that will be a better fit. You made it a long way in their process. they must have seen some good things.

    Also, thank you for the RAK update. Mary

    Is anyone "thinking" about what to make for Christmas yet?

    I have SEVERAL "Tiny Tannenbaum" tree wall hangings I want
    to make this year. Made the first one last year and sent it to my
    MIL since they were planning to be gone for the majority of the
    holiday season they didn't want to put up any decorations so when
    I sent her that wall hanging tree she LOVED it because it was just
    the "right" amount of holiday decor she needed.

    Some of you may know that I am on the "look out" for fabrics that
    has metallic gold, mainly in colors OTHER than green and red, because
    I already have way more than I need (at this time). Colors I am trying
    to find are pink, purple, blues, teals, black, cream, white, and anything
    else.

    My #1 main goal is to make one of these wall hangings for my daughter
    in PINKS because that is her favorite color. I think at this point I have
    about 3 prints with gold.

    In case your not sure what the wall hanging looks like here is a link to
    the one I made last year that I posted on the QB.

    LOL I have tons of red and green with the metallic gold.
    It's the other colors that I am looking for.

    BUT if you need some let me know I will send YOU some
    if you want to make that tree.


    I also found some miniature battery operated lights to
    use, I am going to make "button" holes for inserting the
    lights with a "pocket" on the back to hold the battery pack.

    Great idea when ironing

    Some of you may know that I had (have) a MEGA stash
    of fat quarters that I have been trying to iron and fold.
    However my "normal" size (24oz) spray bottle that I used
    to fill the water tank in my iron just kept running out of water.


    Now the tank on my iron holds 12 ounces of water, I could
    only get 2 fills on a bottle. It felt like I was ALWAYS at the
    faucet filling the bottle again.

    A couple weeks ago I was the store and happen to spot one
    of those larger (1/2 gallon maybe?) water bottles and thought
    that would be perfect for my ironing "binges". It's an idea that
    I am GLAD to be using now.

    The spray bottle on the right is a 24oz size and the one on the
    left is the NEW water bottle that I am happy to be using.

    Have you tried this?

Size:  562.5 KBI received an awesome RAK today from Teresa (MSCUPID804). It was wonderful - thank you. She sent animal fabrics for the I SPY quilt I am working on. I had to cut into them immediately - so if all the fabrics aren't shown you will know why. Thanks again!!!!!

    On a side note the fabric in your picture on the lower far right
    is the same fabric I used to make my FIRST quilt which is hanging
    on the wall by my desk.

    Here is the picture of that quilt (please overlook the "junk" in front of quilt).

    Funny you asked this Louise as I bought a qult that someone started of a tree at a recent quilt show. Since I am the chair for the guilds Christmas party I am going to finish it off to decorate the hall. However I can't finf the mini light garland that I thought I had when I started looking for embellishments. Found all the other fabrics and everything else I need to finish making this quilt.

    Jeff where the lights garland the "fake" lights or real lights
    with the battery pack?

    I THINK that I might have an extra set of the fake lights if I
    can find them I will send to you if needed.

    I bought might fake lights at Hobby Lobby.

    EDIT:
    Scratch the Hobby Lobby idea the closest store to you is
    in Roseville, Ca 105 miles away.

    I will see what I can find locally.

    Do you need fabric with lights? or am I wrong
    Never look down on anyone, unless you are helping them up.
