    I ordered a machine embroidery pattern yesterday to use on my runner. I just don't know what colors I'll be using on them. You'll have to wait to see what the 'them' is, sorry!! They're big and round and float in the sky, though...

    Oops, I thought after I pm'd our OGTRSL (Oh Great Table Runner Swap Leader..lol) and asked if we had to wait for info on our "swapee" or if we could go ahead and get started?..that it was ok to go ahead as long as the theme is "Springy"....lol...So, hopefully I will get someone who likes what I have started on.....or they will at least "think" they like it...haha..Since my sewing machine went "kaput" right before Christmas it put me mailing out the last table runner 3 days late, which I felt terrible about...so I think being able to work on it sooner is definitely an advantage, since "life" happens to us all.
    I told Anastasia if it was a democracy, I would vote to just give out the "theme" and let everyone do what they like...I for one love being surprised, and I know I can use what I get somewhere in my house if it doesn't work in my dining room (we are so bad, we don't eat at our formal dining table unless its a holiday anyway...lol)..Maybe someone should run a "quilt for sitting and eating in front of the tv swap"! . I then told Anastasia that as she is the OGTRSL democracy or not is her decision!...or I could offer to send her a runner made with pastel pinwheels...bwahahaaa...but then I would probably get one made from huge paisley flowers!

Joann had all their holiday fabrics 30-60% off when I was there yesterday. I managed to walk out without any. I did almost buy this piece of fushia duck cloth that was in the remnants bin though. Nope, left it there. Everything else was really picked over in the remnants.

    Oh well, if my partner isn't into frogs, bugs, and monkeys, maybe I'll get to use the yellow remnant I didn't get to use on my mug rug. When I bought it, I looked at my friend Tracy who was with me & said "this just screams MUG RUG!" & she agreed, then I did something completely different after I got their color preferences. I did kinda use a little of one of their colors in it anyway....out of the 8 fabrics I used.
    Weeeelll, I love the idea of bugs, frogs, monkeys....just saying...

    I have certain ones I use but I love to change them out. 1 for Valentine's,1 for Easter, 4th of july, spring.....I don't care. I've made a wreath for the front door for each and every holiday that's on the calender and ones I just make up...change of scenery, it all works and it's awesome because someone made it for you.

    Agreed! I love seasonal stuff, too...did you do the Connectingthreads.com "A Year in Stitches" wallhanging calendar holder last year? The pattern for the wallhanging was free, the 12" monthly blocks were 99 cents each...the hard part was just sending 99 cent payment...I always seemed to think I really needed something else to make it worth the order...riiiight...anyways, I have it hanging in my front foyer, and I love changing the blocks every month...

    I think spring so if you doing spring you would be good as gold with me. if your doing Christmas dont tell anastasia but I am good with that. and april showers somehow would be good with that and especially may flowers and i am fine. I think I am good with that is what I am saying. seasonal or holiday and I win the big grand prize.

    You? I am telling you went peaked again those flying pink pigs on black fabric super cute if you love pigs. I have this flowered fabric that is flowers but to me summer big sunflowers very yellow and red .. if you dont want spring flowers but flowers ana probably wont be able to wet noodle me.. um.. bright easter eggs? pastel easter eggs..ginham, civil war blue and rust.. oh oh get your thinking cap on what will you want ? and there is still tons of suprise guys if you say pigs or flowers or eggs you have no idea what I will do and this round.. no pinwheels unless you love them. I love pinwheels but think I will go with my second favorite block. wonder what that is?

    Stichingpost....thank you....I did send her a PM. Do we get to know our partners preferences, or is it a complete surprise? Obviously, I would like to do something my partner would like, that would go with their decor...etc..

    That's where most of the fun has been on this board. Some of the runner ladies are already sewing madly - with a design they have chosen. Others are waiting to be paired up and contact that partner to see what design they'd like. I personally have a design I'd like to go with - BUT, I don't know what size my partner would like, so I am waiting. Just think Spring and perhaps all sorts of things will come to you - even alien spaceships!!

    Me!!! Me me,, I wanna play! I love love love the table toppers, kinda like a tiny quilt for, well for where ever! I have one on the back of the sofa, and one on the dining table and one on the coffee table... Darn this place is small, but I will get to trade them out sooner this way. I am still in Oregon and will be here for a while, so I will plan on getting it done from Oregon, that means no embroidery, boo hoo. But I am sure I can come up with something to make!

    Ok now I have to send a pm to Ana... ok gotta go find the paper to fill out! I think I might just have a nice glass of wine tonight, it has been a really long day for me! (full story on Mug rug thread, I don't have the heart to repeat it!)
    Give a smile away today, someone you meet might need one!

    Hehe.. goodness.. Do I need to start posting "spring" inspiration? I think easter probably definitely qualifies, unless you're anti-pastel like me Even though I'm anti-pastel, I do have family over for darned near every holiday so it would still get displayed at least once a year. But I'm not playing so my preferences don't matter.

    Hmm.. wine.. I've been craving wine since friday. Good thing I'm broke. I suggest a giant bottle of Barefoot Moscato.. mmmm.
