    Ok gotta ask what the heck is an EGG CREAM/CREME? lost me. And flannel hash? is it all super mixed up? I dice my corned beef with some fresh cut russett potatos that I have mostly cooked so they are equal sizes? and some onions and tada corned beef hash. I am not sure if thats what is in it but thats what I use I cant feed him that either. sigh. It was delicious.

    OK girls today JoAnns has a sale. 7c flat rate shipping kid you not. if you didnt get the coupon code in your email hit me up glad to share. Now that is shipping I can afford and no minimum purchase. They have St. pats half off and easter I think too bit late for this year but next year its twice as expensive plus shipping good deal. I am mostly about needing good deals. Found an ebayer who has alots of pretty timeless treasures fabrics 6.99 yrd plus its free shipping. thats where it comes a little more managable.. Just a shopping thought should the mood strike you.

    I am getting bummed. my non talking partner from Dustysmoms swap hasnt acknowledged my swap delivered. being me, do I know where my confirmation numbers are? no I do know I spent 39.00 sending out those packages four received one missing confirmation. argh. would you write them? takes away the suprise a bit but I want to know it got there! ARGH. patience. who has that? not me.

    Elisabrat, it's corned beef hash with beets added. Not sounding like my kind of thing. I have issues with textures and colors of things not being what they're supposed to be, lol. I could never drink green beer.

    That coupon code is on the mobile app too. I saw it yesterday. When I was in the store last week, they had their Valentine's fabric marked down, but still not enough for me to stock up yet. I'm going back next weekend, I think, so I'll probably get some then.

    I've written your partner from my swap. Sent you an email about it. In my worst southern accent, I say, "Simmer down now." HEHE!

    As irish as I am, I've only had corned beef that I liked, ONCE. That was at my old job that had the best darned cafeteria ever.. *cry* *mourn* I really miss that cafeteria. like.. really... really... really a lot. I used to brag about it. I was like, don't visit me at work, visit the cafeteria. It's so awesome. I used to take pics of my food every day to make people jealous. Anyways

    Clean.. what's that? I don't clean.. I did sleep for like.. 16 hours straight though from friday early evening into saturday afternoon, goodness. Then got up and finished my monkey

    Here's my monkey! I'm making this for an adorable super tiny little pregnant asian girl at work that I've adopted. He still needs his face and the tip of his banana put on.. and other little design markings like ear ridges and such but he's so stinkin cute.

    Don't you dare say anything about any of my mismatching seams. This is all done in flannel... darned wiggly stuff.

    Ana, the monkey quilt is adorable. You find the neatest patterns. I know my swap partner's package was delivered but have not heard from her re: receipt but I think she is busy with life. I will keep that thought. Still acting like spring inthe Rockies here. Woke up to snow, now sun and then cloudy all over again. Only 6 more weeks until real spring. Sigh. Good thing I have a huge stash of scraps to play with!
    She who dies with the most fabric, didn't sew fast enough!

    OMG, how adorable! You's got to tell us where you got that pattern! I'm thinking of my 2nd cousin who has a baby on the way. Ooh, if that's a kiddie quilt size monkey, then I could make her one like that when I make the giant Sunbonnet Sue shape blankies for her sisters baby girls, who are 12 & 17 months old. Thing is, I still have to figure out how to make the giant Sue!

    Ana - love the monkey pattern - I too dislike working with flannel - I have a bad case of eczema on the palms of my hands and the flannel snags - for the last swap I used flannel for the mittens - thank goodness it wasn't the whole runner. According to the post office my package was out for delivery yesterday - I haven't checked today; I will assume that Tammy received it.

    Yesterday I slow roasted two large corned beef briskets for reuben chowder and and rueben sandwiches tonight; the chowder is a new recipe that my daughter wanted to try. No Irish in my heritage nor the misters - my old boss used to tell me "On St. Patty's Day we're all a little Irish" so I'll drink a beer (not green) and toast to your health.

    I'm working on a home deco project that's due out this Thursday; I double checked what my partner had indicated they wanted and darned if I didn't get the wrong fabrics to start with so yesterday when I was at BOM at our local shoppe I picked up new fabric and got busy cutting and sewing last night - I don't think a quilting retreat would be for me - I don't care to sit at my machine for that long a stretch; my arse feels like it is permantely attached to my chair. Wish I could show progress but partner lerks around on the board - NO PEEKING!!!

    You all have a great day celebrating life.

    I will link you the pattern when I get home again. It was like $15 and it's 92 pieces for that center but. It makes 30.5x34.5 panel. He's called malcolm the monkey. It does give an applique option instead...and two sizes.

    I would like one that's big enough for a toddler to use for a nap on the couch. I want to make the quilt in the shape of Sue, not square or rectangle. I figure I'm going to have to trace it out on graph paper though. I've never seen one that big before.

    that is soo cute anastasia and it is NOT applique. TADA for you. way way too detailed for you. I am very impressed. I found a monkey I wanted to do for the new one in our family. But momma there wants girly girly. sigh. one nephew wants me to make brown browns for his girl and the other wants princess stuff. no inbetweens! I love this monkey it was found on pinterest so I cant tell you who designed it unfortunately. wet noodles. it was titled monkey quilt. sigh.

    for the non corned beef believers: try boiling it MINUS the spice package rinse the meat first.. boil for 2.5 to 3 hours low simmer sorry.. and then take it out pat it dry. coat it in mustard. take a mix of brown sugar with 1/4 tsp cloves pat it all over the top put in over 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes til glazed and crunchy looking on top. presto carve it its so different from boiling with the traditional cloves/bayleaves/peppercorns. I love both ways but today they are not loving me. heartburn central. darn it! packed it up to share with my driver. She will love it she doesnt cook and me.. bland bland dinner which will please the punches out the man who hates most foods anyways.

    That's a really cute monkey quilt as well. Looks like a good compromise between girly and browns. I thought about doing this monkey again all in the lighter brown and then putting an applique bow on it and some eyelashes. Or I could do the applique version and design a dress to work around with it. Luckily for me I know this one I'm making for is going to be a boy.

    So put a crown on the darn monkey, do a big castle block for the center of the 2nd & 3rd row, and do it in pinks and browns. Happy compromise!

    i was going to suggest a girly monkey, too. maybe sew some lace like a flange inside a border? pink and brown is considered pretty girly, too! a nice tiara, some pearls, and maybe a blingy little handbag. too cute!!

    Tammy I'm so glad you like the topper - I was concerned because you had indicated you aren't a fan of orange and there is a small amount in the print. The print reminds me of a late spring/early summer day.

    hey, dusty'smomma! i rec'd your wonderful, whimsical table runner today! it is adorable. have i mentioned one of my dogs is named monkey? and i have a large monkey hanging from a leaf in my family room. i think it should have come air mail with all the cute hot air balloons! you did a great job and i can't wait to hang it! ( all my tables (all 1 of them, lol) are consigned to permanent quilting status. this makes the perfect edition to the family room/ stairway. oooo, just had an idea! maybe it will look fantastic going up the stair wall. at any rate i love it!!!!! could you tell? lolol, i hide my feelings so well! not. chuckling maniacly!
