    aquiltymama so sorry to hear about your little one. I have a 2 year old grandson and I can't imagine going through major health issues. Will be praying for your little guy and anyone involved in his care. Take care. Give him "lovins" form everyone here on the board.

    Happy Thanksgiving to all my new friends.

    Carrot, your quilt is just beautiful. I am a little intimidated by my candies and what to do with them. I am researching possible patterns. Just not sure. I would love to see what you ladies are thinking.

    I received two more birthday candies from Wanda Lou and Linda (WMU Teach). Thank you bunches. I have to say my husband has been about as excited as me when we get the mail.
    Happy Sewing, Lisa E.

    Carrot your quilt is beautiful and the size is huge...when did you start this? I love all the colors that you choose. I think I see some squares I gave you (just joking) also thanks for sharing the pattern.

    I NEED MORE QUILTING TIME....and yes I am yelling someone give me more quilting time......sigh

    Carrot, I love your Chiclet! It is so similar to my little one that it could by it's mother! I guess we've gotten lots of the same squares and put them together almost the same.

    Do what I do (just kidding, DON'T do what I do.....) get up at 4:30.....UGH!!!!!
    But because I do manage to quilt at that ungodly hour, here is the latest. This one is for my daughter's friend and cheer co-captain for her 18th birthday. I rarely repeat a pattern but I liked this so much that I have already started piecing one for me. I saw the pattern on the board but no directions so I had to try and figure them out - as a result I think I cut things wrong because I keep cutting off the points!!!! grrr - hopefully no one will notice.

    Thank you for the birthday surprise.

    Thank you for the birthday wishes. I had a great day! Spent part of the day sewing with my sewing buddies. Then had some quality time with my 2 great grandsons. I feel blessed with all my family & friends & especially my quilty friends.

    So sorry marybrace, I just saw this. I did receive my candy from you the first week in Nov. I posted thanks on Nov 4, but I can see that with all the posts, things easily get buried (as evidenced by the fact I didn't see this post until today) Many thanks, neighbor!

    Thanks so much for the well wishes. We meet with a surgeon on Thursday for his first really big surgery (had one several weeks ago, but much smaller.) They say this one takes 3-4 months to heal from, so really not looking forward to it. That's such a long time for a 2-and-a-half year old (and even longer for his mommy!) But, we're doing it now so he doesn't remember it when he's older. Can't wait too much longer and still be able to say that. But, that also means I need to focus pretty much exclusively on him for a little while and while I'd love to keep going with this, I just can't commit.

    But I love seeing the pictures of everyone's quilts. Hoping to eventually have time to sit down and turn these charms into a quilt myself.

I want to thank these ladies, whose I have received so far: WMUTeacher, mitcham, ABDConsultant, barbarakibler23, jannie, LSTEW22, wanda lou, wanna_be_quilter, sustraley, JNCT14, oneteapot, mamaskeeto, marybrace, nls, gandee1, dottiedodge.
