    I sure hope I spelled them all correctly.

    This is more fun. It was like being back at my Grandmothers house and choosing fabrics from her scrap bin.

    I mailed my last Birthday Candy card today...and the first one for April... two more to go for April then they will all be for me!!!!Can you tell I'm looking forward to May!!!

    What a great idea for the squares , oops, candy... That's a cute place mat!

    I made my first 2 envelopes using the Sam's Club flyer..I used Elmer's glue on one and then used a glue stick on the other...The glue stick works better! here's a photo of them...

    I'm wondering...I have a roll of freezer paper that I haven't used..I bought it to do pping but that did not work out for me... it's strong enough and it has a waterproof side of plastic.....hmmmm..I'm going to dig it out of the closet and try it out for the envelopes...only thing is it would have to be taped not glued because of the plastic side...I'll see & let you all know how it turns out...

    Ok here is the contest typed on my teeny tiny phone

    figure out the month. Then figure out the date. Then find out who I am.

    month......my birthstone is pearl.

    date: figure out the following with a calculator:

    Start with 1005
    Multiply by 2
    Multiply by 3
    divided by 30
    minus 170
    add 19
    minus 40
    that number should be someone's birthday
    who am I?
    i will pick a winner tomorrow at 7 pm. Notice the different time

    Go Sheri and the Princess!!! Thats awesome!
    So Honchey asked for the dimensions on the 60 degree template inorder to use with her AccuQuilt GO. Here they are: 2.5" wide strip, template top is 2 5/8", template bottom is 5 5/8".

    I finshed the fundraiser quilt, here is the final, didn't wash it yet so you could see the FMQ pattern and took a close up of that as well. I think my next one will have grey instead of black sashing but not sure yet.

    Well I am back..............my modem died! very sad especially when ATT wanted me to buy a new one when I have been there customer for over 16 years! So needless to say I got a new one for free and then the guy looked at my bill and found me a savings of $60.00 a month on my bundle (TV, internet, cable and phone) ok that made me happy.

    It makes my heart sing to see everyone sharing their quilting ideas, crafting ideas and family accomplishments.
    I think some friendships are being made.....that's a good thing!

    So I have heard from MaryBrace...she is still waiting on one more. (correct me if I am wrong Mary)
    and from Jarenie....she has received them ALL...yeah ladies! (I can hardly wait until October) but I WILL enjoy spring and summer first...(warm weather please come).

    Contest is on until tonight 7pm.....now I am on the way to my daughter's house. She is pregnant and not due until August and had contractions Monday so she is on bed rest. Gonna go and tell that grandbaby to stay put!

    Have a great day everyone.....
    Barb
