    Talked with my swap partner and we are both working hard on our respective quilts. I'm anxious to see a picture of what Jane has done - picture coming soon. I have some major sewing today - all the rows are set, have to sew them together and then the rows for the quilt are done and ready to be sewn - see what I mean about major sewing today??! Got to go get a quick cup of coffee and then down to the sewing room for the day. Our weather is terrible today, so no one is going anywhere. Schools are closed and many businesses have closed too. Stay safe everyone!

    Ughh! My special fabric came in today but I am not sure it'll work Marilyn please let me know if you like this or not. I was trying to find a nice colorful bicycle fabric and the picture on the website was much different than on the fabric..it looked like someone riding through the woods...this looks more like BMXers

    HI nclauri,
    I am there with you. If I am lucky I can sew weekend and squeeze in an evening. I put together 2 blocks out of the 9 that go into the center. Last night I chain pieced some squares and tomorrow I am planning to get the center done.
    I think we have time.

    Hey ladies. just a really quick question. I am an angel [volunteer but they call us angels] at Give Kids the World here in Kissimmee Florida. {look it up if you would like} They offer childern who have been diagnoised with terminal illness a week TOTALLY expse free week of fun. Disney and universal and Sea World, air fare, transportation and much more. Anyway, I also sew pillows for these children. In the castle they get to come in and go to 'Elmer' the tree. He lets them get a pillow from among his branches. They tug and pull on a vine then the tree starts to shake and then when they look in the trunk, they have their own pillow. You should see the eyes on these kids. AMAZING. off track again...sorry. Looking for fat quarters that are kid oriented. Does anyone know where I can get them cheap. The pillow is an envelope form but there is a pocket on the front. Just really looking for cheap kid friendly fabric since this is all donation work. Thanks for all your help!!!! The second pic is of the pocket on front and the third is the back. I always tell the kids when they leave 'Angel wings, Butterfly kisses and Faere Dust all around.

    Hey Boop! On the kids fat quarters: go to thefind.com put in kids fat quarters fabric and you will get alot of places to buy and the price, plus a picture of the fabric...I use this and the time to find different items. Good-Luck..I'll also check and see if I have any in my stash, I don't use kids material, but sometimes I get some at estate sales.

    Boop, this site has pretty good prices on their sale stuff: $2.75/yard & up: https://www.fabricdepot.com/index.ph...e&pageid=15313
    & this site has tons of awesome kids fabrics....some on sale @ $5.00/yard & up. But, maybe if you contact them & tell them what you are doing, they may be willing to drop prices even lower, or even donate to your cause. It might be worth a try: http://bugfabric.com/bargain.htm
    LOVE those hearts!

    please do not worry lauri I haven't even started cutting yours out so you are at least ahead of me. Take your time and enjoy the process I am in no hurry. With me getting sick at the beginning of the month has made me very slow to do things. Do NOT stress..hugggs your partner Melinda

    Got plenty of blues and then ran out of WoW. Got more today and am gonna finish cutting this weekend. Hubby has been "doing" the laundry and for him it means wash and dry and drop in the recliner. Finally got it all folded and put away and started more laundry. After lil man goes down will be dishes time. He puts everything in the sink. Fun!!! Once done I get to finish cutting!!!!!

    Twinriver: half of today is completely YOURS! I have just one small project ahead and that is the plan. I am finally jazzed! those fabrics have been saying get over here get over here. I have to say they are so beautiful I am now personally staying away from jinny beyers site. She has fabrics that are oh so addicting. my I need this list grows every single time I peak there. I need this I need that.. i am dying to get some of her fuscia fabrics. and some more greens and .. thanks a whole friggen lot for pointing me in her direction. Between my kauffman addiction and Jinnys I will be poor forever. a lovely poor.

    I am an enabler. I must accept that label and live with it. I am glad though, that your quilt will be a Kauffman fix for you. Making the label today, I think. I reorganised and cleaned my sewing room yesterday (ha ha), and I can't wait to go up and play in it today. DH is home today, though, which usually means I am waiting on him hand and foot. Yesterday he actually called me down from upstairs to let a cat in. Now the door was right next to his recliner, but he had another cat sleeping on his lap, so he would not risk disturbing her to reach out to the door. The really sad thing about this is that I understood the problem and came down to let cat #1 in for him. While I was there he asked for some lunch and a refill on his coffee. Good thing I love him so much.
    Now on to that sanctuary of mine....
    May your blessings be many, your troubles few and your fabric stash endless!

    Buddy's mom - I can't see your sneak peek.

    I am done sewing for the weekend. All 20 blocks are completed!! My husband really likes the blocks. Next weekend I will sew all the blocks together to complete the top.
