    Oh I can't wait!!! I have most of the fabric for yours. Gonna go hit the quilt shop this weekend and look for a couple of more blues and then I think I'll be ready to get started!!!

    Marytoddliz had to go to OR to take care of her mother, if she is the one who has not reported in, that is why, she is on the road.

    And she will be thrilled she wrote and said she was so sad she had missed the sign ups and told her to hold on you might be adding someone. This will be the good news in her week.

    LOL, yup she does! hehe, I am at my moms, just found out why the connection was not working, the filter is no good, so until I get a chance to get to town and buy anew filter I can either use the phone or the computer but not both! So I am going to get off the computer to wait for call from hubby, but I will be back on line later tonight! (major night owl here!)
    Give a smile away today, someone you meet might need one!

    Marybeth, I love the quilt that is on your Avatar. What is it called? I might have to make one of those for me before I turn 75.

    Marybeth, I just read your profile. You have Maine Coone cats!?! Must see photos. My favorite breed. I lost my dear Anoki many years ago; my sister's Maine Coone died last month. I keep trying to "rescue" "Maine Coones" but they turn out to be MC wannabe's. Still love them, but one of these days, I'm gonna get myself another Maine Coone boy.

    Expect to see an invite from me to join the new "Group" for this swap. It's mostly so you can have it show up on your profile. We'll continue to use this forum for most communications. But one thing that's nice about the group is that we can have all the photos of the finished quilts in one place. When we're ready, that is.

    Oh and can I just say that I thought some of the partner groupings were pretty amusing. And no, I did not select partners based on the compatibility of their QB screen names. That said:

    2. buddy'smom and shortmom5 - both moms
    5. jclinganrey and vanogay - they rhyme
    8. LovingIzabella and zzmom - both have Zs in them
    11. nclauri and nexxus831 - both start with Ns - okay, so that's not so interesting. ;-) But I bet THEY are!

    Born in Long Beach, grew up in La Jolla, lived for a while in Solana Beach, then San Francisco, and Fairfax til the mid 90s when I was swept off my feet by a DC-based DH. Grew up on the beach. (My aunt called us all "barefoot beach bums" -- it was meant in the negative, but we adopted it with pride!)

    Been in the DC area for 18 years. And every time (every time) I return to the west coast, my body and soul take a deep, refreshing breath and feel HOME. Unfortunately, something similar happens when my DH visits New England. So here we are.

    That said, I love it here. I love our community. And despite all rumors to the contrary, DC is a really wonderful place.

    You're the only out-of-the-States who applied! Thanks for joining us! (And you're in that part of Canada that "juts" into the space between Michigan and NY/PA. Always makes me think of a Michael Moore documentary where he crosses over into Canada from Detroit to demonstrate how Canadians don't lock their front doors...
