    Erin (a quilty mama): 0

    And I've mailed all but the December you emailed today. If people still haven't received them, please let me know. I asked my husband to mail them, and he said he did, but I'll go check his car to make sure they're not sitting there.

    Also, I probably won't swap next year. I love it, but we're having some major problems with my 2-year-old son's health (he had one surgery last month and we are meeting with a surgeon in a couple of weeks to set up a new, major one.) So, I just don't have a lot of time to quilt, cut fabric, etc. But, I've loved swapping (and will of course follow through on this year's commitment through February.)

    thanks for the check ins..........yeah for Marybrace, aquiltymama, ahwu, honchey, nls, and oneteappot.....glad that you have received everything!

    Aquiltymama......I have been part of a Chanukah fest. The family I nanny the father is jewish mom is christian so they celebrate both. They are very happy it fell this year on Thanksgiving because they always go to Phillidelphia to visit his brother for Thanksgiving. Now they get to celebrate both holidays. I make latkas every year with the kids..... there is a book that the kids love that we read about the magic pan that continues to make latkas. They use to think I had the magic pan. (lol) now there to old for that (darn). Enjoy your holiday.......and all the cooking

    JNCT14....lovely work on that piece.....but it looks realllllllllllyyyyyyyy hard!

    I am making 3 flannel quilts...the kind that you make the square and quilt it while you go...not sure what it is called. Anyway I am making it out of flannel plaids and I am repurposing flannel shirts, flannel robes and flannel pants.....It has been fun finding all the different pieces...and so much cheaper then buy fabric and it is already been washed so I have no worries of it shrinking.
    crazy part....I am making 3 of them 96 x 96 when finished......looks like me and the elves are gonna be up a lot of nights

    Barb -- Thanks. Unfortunately, these are all complications from a genetic disease he has, which, unfortunately, is eventually terminal. But, if you have to have any terminal genetic illness, this is the one... if we can keep him healthy enough, he can hopefully have 30-40 years. But, a lot only get 10, so it's just a lot of work.

    Thank you to everyone. I have had a great couple of weeks with candy in the mail nearly every day. I believe I thanked some of the early ones already. I kept them separate (I think) to make sure I thanked everyone.
    I still owe thank yous to:
    barbarakibler23 (love the photos)
    mariposa
    oneteapot ( creative card and darling extra goodie-don't want to spoil if others haven't named it yet)
    sewmany (thank you for extras)
    nis
    jarenie (instructions for English Garden will definitely be used!)
    goldendog55
    jannie (thank you for the extra fat quarter!)
    gandee
    fraew
    sustraley (plus clever little bonus square)
    ahwu
    mamaskeeto
    honchey
    sheriR
    aquiltymama

    Thank you to everyone again. Special thank you to those of you who took the time and effort to send a card or something extra.
    Good Birthday Times!

    Here is a picture of the finished wall hanging. Barb - this is super easy - if you can make a circle and a strip, that's pretty much it. I can send instructions to anyone who wants to try.
    Erin - hang in there. I am still looking for a job but I count my blessings with 2 healthy kids (my youngest is a senior in high school - oh boy) so money may be tight but I really can't complain.

    Everyone have a great holiday!!!!!

    Chicklets

    My king size quilt is done !!!! 110 x 110. Woo Hoo!!!! Pieced and quilted it myself on my Viking Sapphire. Too big to get a really good picture of it. One picture it is laid out on my floor and the other picture is my DDIL and DS holding it ( the quilt went to them)-- I kinda cut my son off--oops !!!!
    I did not use any of my birthday candy on this one... that pattern is next on my list

    Nothing fancy on the quilting-- just a large circle with a smaller circle on the inside--all over pattern.

    Beatiful quilt, carrot. Trying to figure out the pattern.

    Looks like you were selective on the fabric choice.?
