    My sis gets a cooler full of crawfish at her holiday dinner and well its a whole lot of work for little rewards. Give me a MAINE lobster and happy happy am I. hit a lobster pound boil away and heck yes. Glad you got home safe and DO NOT check out those wedding photos. not worth it. I always figure that life takes us many places some nicer than others. I have one X I havent seen or talked to in oh so many years. My sis ran into him maybe 20 yrs ago said I was doing great living the life in x town married well.. yada yada and I thought why? why rub stuff like that in? just say she is doing good. all that was needed. I have not been above however wondering what he is up to now.. never look try to find out.. I hope he is well. I am not proud to say I have been married more than once. My x's and I however are on good terms. two came at once when I was hospitalized to help me. blew me away both at one table saying we are here what can we do? so Life takes us funny places. take off those gold shoes.. know happy is ok in the ones we once loved girl. its part of life.

    nite ya all. so happy I can post. earlier I got.. blue screen argh! I am excited for my swap its going to be so much easier than the last one. thanks for doing partners.. no I don't know if this is right.. lots of clues and helpful chatter. thanks!

    fine, Lovely Ladies! who is close to finish? who has not even started? who has mailed? have all received been posted? I see jabas was, Vanogay said she mailed, um.. lets see I mailed, we have a couple with binding left? am I on target here? oh dabbler you mailed right? Juanita been mailed to Mariposa? I am working on a system for the real swap ok this was real but not official I have seasoned veterans helping out. I am so still in the summer mood too.. I am seeing watermellon slices and berries in my future..

    Did the Nor Cal quilt rush and renegade run today. Lots of fun and found 3 new butterfly batiks to add to my collection. 3 bright red batiks to add to that collection too also found a few odds and ends I couldn't live without. Discovered a new quilt shop with tons, and I mean tons of fabric and great prices! Then when I got home I found that the Kaffe jelly roll I ordered had been delivered! I am feeling a little fabric drunk right now! I plan to bind my topper in the morning. I sure hope my recipient enjoys my appliqué masterpiece

    i admit it, i have fallen behind, due to that's the part of me with the strongest gravitational pull! but i will catch up on monday. things are started but nothing is finished. i seem to thrive on the pressure....or not. it's been a weird week. and not all good, not all bad either, just bumpy!
    The only bad days are the ones you don't get.

    Nancia find me a person who has no bumps in the road and I will tell you they are fibbing. your fine. one day at a time right? I sometimes thrive on rush of gotta get this done yet I set my goals differently. if its due June 1st and we start say March 1st... I am done by mid April. it eats at me oh no your going to be late oh on hurry hurry the clock is ticking. this internal ahhhh moment hits me often. sorry girl your just going to have to buckle up and tackle those projects. sigh..

    Tlambing what is this Norcal quilt run you did? I have never heard of it but it sounds like such decadent indulgence that well thank heaven that you dont get any calories with it... new stores.. oodles of fabric? batiks? kaffee fassette? (I love those fabrics) and well I hope you slept well on your pile of new found treasures. I am envious! I have a great idea show us a pic of your new stash make everyone envious too...

    Let's see - mailed, got, so am good here. Oh, just wanted to post a pix of a thing I made for another thread - it was supposed to be 'scrappy'. Well, this particular fabric was of no use to me, couldn't do what I wanted with it, so I embellished on the definition of scrappy - made these and called them good. The recipient said she liked them, let's hope she didn't fib!

    tlambing, I like Brats idea of showing off what you bought. Start a new thread and I can post on it too when my little charm packs arrive. I am on the fabric moratorium thread and trying to only use stash but one foot fell off the other day. Vanogay, I am sure your partner loved the place mats, especially if she lived in the south. It is all a part of our history...good or bad. I just hope we learned from it. Waiting for company to arrive so will be off board for a couple days. Look forward to pics of what all you have received when I return.
    She who dies with the most fabric, didn't sew fast enough!

    argh on just hitting quick reply!

    I agree with you agreeing with me! show us your stash. but first tell us what the heck that quilt run was? dying to know so share so we can all run with you in our minds! I finished up my daughters Cinco de Mayo runner lots of margarita glasses, party parrots and surf boards. I hope she loves it. its a fun young runner she entertains so many theme parties this will get much use. I have another stumped on binding I have so much fabric not one the right color. argh!!

    I hope that everyone is on track and has a time frame in their minds on sending their runners. I know how easy it is for time to slip away. My good buddy here sent me a dry erase board to write my to do's on. not a bad idea. I do often resort to a yellow pad. this is due when this is due on this date this one is due and it helps me figure which one is the top priority and so on.. just saying

    Off to cook dinner love to hear from everyone how their day went! mine went well lots accomplished. I love love love those days. happy times are here again ta da da da daa da da da da.. oh dear singing again..

    Nor cal quilt rush is a group of Northern Cal. quilt shops that get together and sponsor a shop hop. There is a bingo type card that gets stamped at each place and if you go to all of them you get entered into a great prize drawing and several other shop drawings. Another group of shops do the same thing on the same wknd and call themselves the Renegade run. My friends and I just made up our own outing visiting any and all shops we could yesterday. We found a great new place in Lincoln called Angel quilters, great fabric and loads of it. Great prices too. It's a definite that we will be returning there! Anyway, only spent 75.00 in the whole day and ate wayyyyy too many sweets, as each shop has refreshments (they give away some type of quilting goodie too, so ended up with pens, charm squares and fat quarters galore)
    Since I was the driver, my passengers bought me dinner out at Mimi's YUM!

    Here's pics of my butterfly batiks, red batiks and the Kaffe jelly roll I ordered on ebay.

    Hope no one is bored senseless with my rambling.
    Attachment 409375Attachment 409376Attachment 409377The Kaffe is for a class I am going to take in May. Kaffe Gemstones pattern.
    Does anyone have any butterfly or hummingbird batiks they might want to swap? I'm hoping to collect enough to make an entire quilt of just those. Also collecting true red batiks

    Oh no your link comes back invalid links! I was so jazzed to check it all out. I do not have any hummingbird batiks did see a couple on line recently but none here. I have paw prints! and I have fish! and lots of vines leaves that sort a stuff. I am so drawn to those types of batiks. Oh and done with bit trees on a burnt orange/red/yellow back ground. Not a single red now that you mention it. Tropical mostly(wonder why??) now I am off to check out the web see if I can find that pattern kaffee fasset gemstones. it sounds intriging.

    WOW is that a lovely collection and the first is the kaffe fasset set? I have that first fabric and now see all those colors oooh laa laa. someone will be smiling big time with that finished project. is that one for you? the true reds gosh I tried so hard to order true reds with my regular cottons and got orange reds, burgandy reds talk about frustation. you must have gone in and bough those in person? my favorite is a true red or a blueish red not the orange ones at all.

    thank you for making me drool.

    Dustysmomma strikes again!!! I received my runner and will post a pic later today... Sooooooo pretty and colorful and fits my table perfectly!!

    I spent most of Saturday sewing a Meetup group called 'Sewing on my kitchen table'. We're a group that get together to sew instead of sitting home and sewing at our tables alone. Most of the women sew fashion items but I'm infecting them with decor.

    Runner is almost done, just need to finish the applique.

    On a side note... my sagas and dramas continue. Pray for an intervention or I will be relocating back to Minnesota/Wisconsin in 60 days instead of finding a new place in the Bay area.

    Hope mine arrives before we leave so I can see it, if not will have to wait 3 weeks. Sorry Traci, thought maybe with your hubby being able to go back to work he'd have a new lease on life. Doesn't make it easy on you, remember to relieve that stress on something or you'll go nuts!

    YES! True red is my favorite color!!! makes me smile.

    I have had pretty good luck finding them lately and yes I have physically picked them out myself. I only made one misstep with my own eyes, I ended up with one slightly orange, but I still will use it on something else, it's still really pretty.

    Yes, the jelly roll is the Kaffee Fasset set. I can't wait to put it together! It is so me. I love Bright and vibrant!

    Traci I will pray that the what is right happens. life takes you odd places you know? if it takes you back home then that is what it does.. and maybe even if your thinking but I am not ready maybe its right regardless. I know what should be will be. Enjoy today. right now. where you are. best you can do besides arent you busy with lovely company?

    So glad you got your runner cant wait to see the pics Tracibug.

    Quiltingkrazy mail away. Everyone please mail as soon as your ready. Early is perfectly ok. late not so much. Then feelings get hurt and well stuff you know?

    onto a lighter happy note I am going to make mug rugs and thankfuly the brat looked at her email again. I read it obviously once, read it again and said ok .. its fall in NZ make a fall one. then I go back for a double check and see its going in the sewing room so sewing themed. OMG how did I miss that? zoom right out the window. Having short term memory loss is not a picnic ya' all. And never on purpose. phew saved by the double check it thoughts. tada! and I have sewing themed fabric which amazes me since I didnt buy it. I am soooo happy now. A real relieved happy. Hope your day finds something happy in it too.

    Le Brat!

    Just got home yesterday after being away over three weeks. I'm ready to walk out the door again already. So much to put away, organize, bills to pay, floors to clean, laundry to do -- no fun. But on the good side, here's a teaser on the tropical topper I'm getting ready to send (needs ironing and evelope). Also a picture of the reason I've been away. I hope it excuses me for not sending out sooner. My topper isn't a tropical as I wanted it to be -- had to work with what was at hand -- so it's tropical in color only. To me that would be lime greens, oranges, turquoise, purples ... anyway, hope it goes to a home where it fits in ok.
