    Lovinggrandma wrote you back. Sorry I have closed this little side swap as of last night. Anastasias new swap will be started in approximately one week. At that point everyone can sign up who has a clear shipping history and a positive feedback from other team Leaders. Please keep your eyes open for the new posting coming soon.

    I have decided being the great decider (Bush and I can join a team there) that the theme will be SUMMER FUN for the new swap going to be started by Anastasia. For those in areas that are going into winter they can chose if they would prefer to receive a summer or a different color palate based on their season. I believe we had only Northern Hemisphere traders last round Nancia but overall everyone is to do a summer themed runner. No worries about that now it will be posted next weekend I think as the new swap.

    Tablerunners Tropical theme: I am sending names out this morning watch your email I pulled them and the results are in!

    Ok I have sent the secret pal names out if you signed up with me and did not receive a name check back with me. Incredibly (I know this almost unbelievable) I make mistakes at times and might have wizzed right by your name when writing emails. If I did wet noodles are in order. I cant wait to see the sneak peaks and finished products. I am off to sew on mine its coming along so nicely I am one happy camper. DONT TELL ANYONE WHO YOU HAVE now ladies its secret! and teasers but not easy ones encouraged.

    ON A SEPERATE NOTE: ATTENTION I NEED TO KNOW WHO HAS NOT RECEIVED THEIR SWAP ITEM FROM ANASTASIAS LAST SWAP DUE IN MARCH 15th. BEFORE SHE CAN POST A NEW SWAP SHE NEEDS THIS INFORMATION ASAP> So instead of writing her an email she is swamped with homework and work work please send me a PM so I can make a list to give her. I need your names and am hoping there is only one or two at most. WRITE ME PLEASE!

    That's okay brat, do another one ......send me this one though, I'll back it, quilt it, bind it...everything, don't mess with it anymore. I'll be more than willing to take it right out of your little hands, no problemo' . Okay ladies if you are my partner for the tropical splendor would you rather have the ocean sights, the blooming cacti desert or tropical delights? Think of things you would see if you go on vacation like an ocean cruise, the blue water, the Arizona desert, hot with blooming cactus or Hawaiian forests, bright foliage. Let me know, it may be you.

    I've been to Arizona and Hawaii, and my friend Tina (retired US Marine drill instructor) would smack me around for this, but I preferred Hawaii.

    I'm trying to decide between black and white for a color to go with the batiks I posted. I have white fabric, but I think I have used up all the black I had. Time to go "digga drawers" as Dusty used to say, so I can find out! I've been lazy today so far. I got up with a swollen & sore muscle in my left shoulder this morning, so I've been on the heating pad on the couch all day. I think it's time to go get something productive though, since I've had a nap now too!

    black and white are both such final strong colors. have you considered a bright tone of one of your batik color(s) in a solid.here's a pic to give you an idea of what i mean. just an idea.

    Brat, even though I am not in the swap, I can still comment, right. :-) I think this pink, green and white is lovely and tropical looking even if it is not bright colors. On a table ready for a luau, it would be perfect. I would glady take any leftover scraps you don't want when you are finished with it. :-) Whomever gets it will like, it I am sure. Well, I need to get back to making the baby quilt for my nephew and his girlfriend. (That's the way things are now days-sigh). But it is his first child and he is 44 so one very happy daddy! The shower is the 27th even though baby arrived on the 1st. (She was early) and I still need to get it quilted and bound. Will post a pic on another thread when I get it finished.
    She who dies with the most fabric, didn't sew fast enough!

    Girl, I didn't even notice it until you pointed it out!

    Yeah, I thought about it, but there's really not a color that jumps out at me from the group as being "the one". I'm afraid of the black being too stark a contrast for a happy season table runner, which is why I didn't start cutting today! Instead I've been working on something else, but I'll post that in the Home Decor thread since it's nothing to do with a runner.

    funny I didnt see the vacuum either! and lets see dustysmomma white would be bright and don johnson like very Florida. I love that quilt Nancia. Love the bright blue. I just looked at your colors I think something in that green tone or in the blue tone would work around all of them. each one has a tiny bit of something for the most part so it will all go. solid probably .. yellow is too bold and so is orange for a big color around them I think but the cooler colors would pull it all in together. imho. ha ha last time Iwas humble opinionated was like never.

    Sandy thanks for the nice words. same goes it to Jan. I appreciate it. I just was worried my partner might be hoping for something a bit more exciting in colors. worry wort that would be me.

    Ooh, orange! There's not nearly as much orange in the fabrics as other colors, so that would make them pop too! Worst case, it looks like an orangecicle! Hmm, you ladies are going to make me shop again. I found enough black solid last night to do this too, lol. I'm not going for the Miami Vice table runner!

    Sorry Nancia, I know you had your heart set on these batiks, but they're not fond of 12 foot snow drifts & are going somewhere warmer, lol.

    Hey brat, sent that runner to me, forget about Jaba. I'm not a pink person, but I do like what you did with the flowers - not sure what kind they were, reminded me of Magnolia (Louisiana flower). Anyway, send it on, I'm waiting. And Jaba, if I'm your partner, would kinda like the desert. Loved the high desert when we lived in Victorville and then in Mountain Home and Boise. The beauty of a desert is unlike anywhere on earth as far as I'm concerned. Of course, I like the temperate climate of Tennessee better than the searing heat of a desert! Picked out some colors for my tropical runner and now I'm starting the second guessing....hang in there partner, I'll figure something out, hopefully!

    beautiful pink, green and white runner Brat;

    nancia that quilt is to spectacular - I love all colors but the batiks are my favorite.

    I have my partner's name - now I just have to do a little snooping to see if they are a little out on the limb or more traditional.

    You all have a fantastic day doing something that makes you smile.
    Be good to yourself - do one thing each day that makes you smile.

    I am going to finish my dq today and work on boom blocks. I will hope my tropical fabric flys home to me by midweek. I found this killer hawaiian floral on black with beautiful parrots on it. I think its so pretty I have to make one with that too and then the margarita glasses are coming in which would be cute with my wave fabrics and some other floral I purchased hawaiian state flower fabric the print is so realistic I love it kinda like the way they did those farm fabrics? this is like photo flowers.. so pretty in yellows and well another runner will be born this week maybe two. they are so addicting!

    This girl is a bit less traditional... would prefer more tropical/floral than desert, ocean with a mai tai in front of it would be lovely though! :-)

    Crud, I may have just changed my pattern... but batiks will most certainly be involved.

    Happy quilting everyone...

    ohhhh I love batiks you can make me one! or two even! I love tropical flowers how can you not be happy with a tropical flower? they are so cool, usually so exotic looking sure wont grow in my yard! and often the perfume from them is amazing.. I have been to Hawaii several times and to Mexico several times.. never had a bad trip probably why the tropical appeals to me, it brings happy thoughts to mind and well who doesnt like happy thoughts?

    On a lazy note I am sewing today and getting the house cleaned by someone other than me. NOW that is a happy thought. off to work on some binding and hopefully the mail will come back with my groceries and in it will be some fabric. too soon but I can always dream..

    Well, I dove in head first and went and bought 3 yards of beautiful solid orange fabric, since there are so many blues and greens in the fat quarters I bought. Of course, it doesn't hurt that I can use this with the leftovers my partner from this swap sent me with my runner! I'm thinking my boyfriend needs a bright runner for the conference room in his office too!

    So Nancia how are my bunny slippers coming along?

    I finished my quilt top!!!!! three borders it looks very very nice. DH said put it in front of a window and it resembles a church stained glass to him with the light shinning through from behind. I think that was a compliment from him not sure I also finished two boom blocks!! it was a good sewing day. And Emily not only cleaned she ran to the bank, the grocery store and the post office for me as a bonus. She has been helping me for 2.5 yrs and is so reliable and trustworthy I love it. She also has a little 5 yr old boy she is trying to care for all by herself. deadbeat x. She needed shoes for him for Christmas. I made sure she had some and he thought they were the best present ever .. they are just like dads he said. oh crud. or oh yeah I suppose. At least he had something that fit instead of undersized shoes. He is a great easy going polite little boy. If all could be that way! anyone with left over boys clothing size 7 he could use some maybe we can work out a fabric trade for them. She works two jobs and cleans houses but still its never enough with growing children. Minimum wage just doesnt get you far I think.

    anyone start their runners? any one pick their fabrics out yet? anybody at all??
