    Posted another preview for Mindless in group area. Making a bit slow progress right now due to all the traveling, but I get to spend some time this weekend on it and hopefully will get a lot more of it done

    Oh Wendy....I really, really like how it's looking! All thumbs are up!! BTW: that is NOT slow progress! We actually do ​have until July! lol

    I just love this swap! I've got yours hanging on my design wall waiting for attention, & every time I walk past it, I think of you & smile. I kinda want to just keep it there for a while & not finish it just yet.
    What a great way this is to meet new friends!

    i wish I had time to play like that. guess I have to make time. I always wish a real quilter could come to my home and teach me a few things 1)my machine how dumb is that but sit here and show me all the bells and whistles. that would be lovely and eye opening. 2) teach me like sneaky quilting tricks only old time quilters know. stuff that you just do and think of course while those of us not in the know go omg duh when you show us. that is my fairy wish this day
    OK, I know this offer is late, but I will come up to that frozen forest you call home and spend a week with you teaching you how to use your sewing machine... and your Computer too if you wish! You will just have to feed me, listen to my Whiney voice as I complain about.... hummm Ok cut that last part, no complaining, but we will have to have a few shots of something... I said shots, small ones, you know the two oz variety!!! hehe... I am on my way~ I am glad you love me and know my humor is borderline insanity at times~

    your Mom does long arm? Like right around the corner from me??? Maybe I would like to meet her, and well have her do all my long arm work! How much does she charge? And btw... I am going to be headed back to Seattle on Thursday, is everyone healthy now? We really have to meet, I mean my mom lives around the corner (well sort of) from your Mom and you live right around the corner to my Daughter... It is destiny for sure!

    I have an idea! I can just house hop, go from one quilters home to the next, doing what ever it is you want done... long enough to wear out my welcome then move on to the next quilter... Hummm I have a new career any takers??

    Hope things are well at your Mom's.
    Libby, I hope you got my PM, I am actually about 3/4ths of the way finished with your top... I came over to post a quick peek at the pattern company I am using (I stole it, the picture not the quilt) It is called Buggy Barn, won't tell you which pattern I am using but I love the whole crazy concept! I am trying to catch up on posts, on reading and seeing what every one is up to and I think I had too much coffee, no wine, none in the cupboards, dang! To wet and cold to go to the store! http://www.buggybarnquilts.com/ I took a class at the local quilt shop here in Oregon, bought the book now want to make more! I love them, but I am glad I took the class because other wise it would have had me more crazy than I already am!

    ok I can't post picture but here is the link!

    Well well here I am. Not putting the binding, not quilting the quilt yet no no BUT I STARTED SEWING!! I cut and finished perfectly two blocks today. It was a busy full of stuff day but I got them started and well it feels real good. the colors are coming together not sure about that pop color might unpop and skip it as the others pop rather nicely on their own. I will wait and judge that until I hit halfway. then I can better say if its needed or not. This will be that hey I wouldnt mind owning (um lost in the mail? lol). and I never want to waken my cats. oh dear no. dont roll over they might be disturbed one cat loves to come tap my leg while I am sewing. I usually say in a minute in a minute and sits there reaches up and taps me again twice. ok ok stop what i am doing give her a grand rub scratch go to sew.. tap tap. ok need more.. this is how it goes. love those kids I mean cats of mine I just wanted you to know Twinriver I broke the ice. tada! now they will roll.. one block for every other block I do and it will finish in no time at all.

    Here today... why what a lucky bunch we are.

    You can come to my house....maybe it's right on the way. I'll get the wine, make a few brownies & we can see how much trouble we can get into. then, I could go with you to the next quilter, & we could all 3 go to the next, & so on. Maybe by July, we could all meet each other in person. Have our very own little q4q quilt party / show. It would be good practice for you in your new career. lol

    Those buggy barn quilts are great. Just might have to try making one.

    I'm so excited! Take all the time you need, because I can enjoy looking at YOUR quilt hanging on my wall for as long as it takes. I know what you mean about cats. Mine get in my face and lap (along with the 2 dogs) at 4:30 every day and demand dinner. One cat (who only has 3 legs) actually climbs a tree to get outside my window and get my attention. Don't they realize I am sewing here? The kitten left a dead mouse next to my slippers this morning, by the way. I praised her, disposed of it and checked in the slippers carefully.
    May your blessings be many, your troubles few and your fabric stash endless!

    oh dear lord present! mine finds anything that moves. indoor kitties here. outside kitties are bait. Darned racoons would get them or bob cats or coyotes not sure about foxes but they dont last long outside sigh. Neighbor had six cats on his porch he fed a year ago. within one full year only one left. its the critters that catch them. that and snakes ugh. lovely living in the country but not if your a cat. Today I will make another block and soon I will have a quilt. one block at a time. I am usually good to sew two blocks a day. Then I get tired and need to stop. I just peaked at those blocks and the calmer one still says yes. maybe the bolder one will go in the quilt just to show .. a wilder side next to the gentler side of me too oh worse yet I named your block Twinriver. I um call it.. Frog Pond. Dont ask me why either it just came to me. yikes I now. trust me there are no frogs on your quilt fabric at all so where did that name come from? lol

    Any and all on the website will be perfect! Love em all. Yep, love brights. The link doesn't work, but haven't seen anything out of Buggy Barn that wouldn't be welcome in my house.

    Will be leaving this weekend for DD for two weeks. Not sure if I will get to start yours there or not. Getting acquainted with DGS will be top priority.

    I am so excited for you Libby, having a new grand son to play with and spoil. I am going on a trip myself, leaving Thursday for Washington. I get to play with my 3 year old granddaughter! I am so excited! But what ever sewing I don't get done between now and Feb ... middle of Month I am guessing... will just have to wait, sew sew sew... here I go. Linda/brat. I am working on finishing the lap top cover for your little Princess, It should be in the mail by tomorrow... Well that is my goal, I might have to mail it from Washington So where is the Town that the Buggy Barn is in? I might see if my daughter will take me there, or at the very least let me borrow her car, that is unless it is in the snow country!

    The last 2 weeks have been crazy. First I came down with a terrible case of stomach flu, then hubby came down with the flu, not a fun time around our house. On top of all that I have been studying for a state licensing test, which I have to take today. If you have a moment today, I would appreciate prayers that I pass. If I pass, it means I can get back to sewing more and not studying. Thanks for hearing my sad tale, lol.

    Buddy's mom, I have managed a couple of blocks these past 2 weeks and it is really coming along nicely. I bought the border fabric and I think it will look great with the blocks. I will try and post a peek after the test today.

    Have a great day everyone!

    How are you all doing? Any progress? I have not advanced this week and Saturday I am going to a Super Bowl Mistery Quilt organized by the guild. It is always fun, even though I dont know anything about football. The organizer asks questions about football and if the answer is correct you can draw a price. We have fun and leave with a top done. Ah, she cooks chilly for all. We rent a space in a church nearby. So, because I will be at the class and my DH goes camping with my 8 yr old son, Sunday no sewing for me!
    :-( I wish I was a full time quilter!

    I have finally gotten the middle done with the applique, but now for the border, this will take me some time. I will go through all kinds of ideas before settling on one!
