    Pamela, it was a really fun quilt top.

    Secret pal, your package is going out tomorrow with two handmade items in it and some of your most wanted items.

    Cool

    I made something for my secret pal today and I also went shopping and found several items my secret pal wanted.

    In my secret pal's state-

    It is illegal to sing while wearing swimwear in public.
    and
    It is also illegal for an unmarried woman to skydive on Sundays.

    Secret Pal, your state is home to the longest toll road in the United States.

    Ok, here goes a clue for my secret pal.

    Both Spain and England claimed this state for their countries between the years of 1542 and 1579

    Smile

    Yesterday I received this amazing package from have4boys. A rainbow of Civil War FQs, Scrap Quilting book, gum, turtle charm and the cutest vegetable pot holders. I posted a picture with the front of the pot holders showing and then a picture showing the fabric on the back. Thank you for everything. I am looking forward to making some of the patterns out of the book and using the fabrics. I really like the hand made potholders and they already went into use.

    Anna,

    I am glad you liked everything. When you sent the oranges and avocados, I knew if I ever got you as a secret pal, I was going to make you farmer's market pot holders.

    I am probably one of the few that is not a big fan of the civil war fabrics. I like bright and vibrant.

    It seems in this swap there are many bright and vibrant fabric lovers. I have had several people that liked bright, pink, red, black and white. They also do not like brown. I can go either way as most quilts I make for others and few if any like Civil War. Personally I am big on Civil War and patriotic. Something I wonder about too is if people like batiks.

    I love patriotic both red, white, and blue as well as maroon, cream, and navy. I am not a big batik fan either. It is very easy to sew, but not sure why, it does not make me all googley eyed.

    Last night my son brought the boys by. We took Hyde down to the next block to the fire house. He was so happy. He has become fascinated with fire trucks. I rocked Hendrix and he feel asleep. He was so sweet. He wanted to be sung to.

    Adorable grandkids Hav4boys!

    On another note, I happened to stumble across two bags of quilting fabric scraps last month at a thrift store. They were all plaids and Thimbleberries! Some fat quarters had odd cuts chopped out of them, so I pressed all of them out and cut all into 5" charms using my AccuQuilt cutter. Some lucky person may be getting a nice sized package of charms some day if there is still anyone out there that is a Thimbleberries & plaids fan. I thought they would be a good fit for a masculine quilt since they are all muted browns greens, tans, etc.

    Love it! Great find indeed. I think many people that like muted tones and Civil War might like Thimbleberries also. Maybe Mary Christine can confirm that. People that are into primitive quilts might like them too. Or like you mentioned, some one looking to make a man quilt. Lots of possibilities. Nice you cut it all up into a charm pack.

    Thanks for posting pictures of the grandsons. I love seeing them grow up. The one picture of Hyde in front of the fire engine is so classic. It makes me smile. What a sweet boys.

    Got my package from AnnaQuilts yesterday. It was awesome. Lots of black and white fabric and a pincushion that she made. I love it.(Taking it to my bee Wednesday to show it off). Thank you for everything.

    Those grandboys are adorable! I have 4 grandsons myself and all of them take after me with good looks and above average intelligence...lol. My granddaughter followed suit as well.
    Annaquilts, I think you're spot on with Civil War fans liking Thimbleberries as well. And I agree that those and the plaids would make an outstanding men's quilt.
    I seem to have lost my mojo for the time being. Too hot to think about quilting! That should change in the next few weeks though - I hope!
