    Vanogay I will climb up there for you. There are a lot of us who post and well update on life and our quilt projects. Then there are those who prefer to watchin the sidelines which is fine too .. that said when someone takes the time to make a gift for you its beyond incomprehensible to ignore it. I hope that that table runner is acknowledged and Jaba do not make another. That is a lovely table runner and surely was enjoyed (or if you say on vacation didnt open it/) and the receiver just didnt get the write rule. I will hope they write asap. It would most assuredly be the RIGHT thing to do. Know you did what you needed to do Jaba. The rest is out of your hands.

    I sent mine NORTH TO ALASKA (ok maybe I didnt) but I know its not in Hawaii right now. Its in a truck or plane more likely. riding third class. but travelling. I am hoping it works for the person I sent it to. Now I am ready to start the second one and it is NOT blue. is it yours??? who picked colors other than blue? speak up speak up!

    I am soo excited to start this one, sorry, but no, I have not begun yet. Other than in my head. There is WAY too much in there right now. I don't know why I do this. Always over do myself this time of year. LOL I thrive on the challenge. I hope noone minds that mine will be later than sooner. But by the deadline for sure. Well, I'll try. LOL Now I'm sounding like someone else I know. LOL Just had to stop in and say "hi", back to work I go. Wanna get out of here at a decent hour today so I can sew!! I cannot say it enough. DANG JOB!!!!! Gets in the way of my life.

    OK, that's IT! All other projects are on the back burner until my runner is done!

    Well, maybe not. I do have my entire box of pins in use about to put together a bunch of D4Ps... so maybe I'll finish assembling those, THEN finish the runner...

    I think you guys are rubbing off on me. DH pointed out that my hobby is expensive, as I spent over $100 at Joanns this weekend. Reminding him that it was all on sale, and that I SAVED $100+ didn't help either... Oh, well. He got a boat last weekend. He can deal.

    Buslady you need to take a sick day from work and let out all that head stuff, just call in and tell them you're all stuffed up, not a lie, truthful as can be. LoupEsprit you need to go back to Joanns you forgot to buy more pins and you have a long way to go to even out that boat. If you run out of things to buy, let me know and I'll be happy to help you out with that...
    I know where the table runner is going to from the" Brat" I'm sure she'll like it!! Can't remember if she told me the other one, maybe not, I didn't ask for blue...it might be for me!! I guess I'll find out sometime. Today I need to finish a little gift for my SP swap for December. The sewing machine is calling to me, "she" is a little slave driver every once in awhile. Check in later.....

    Worked downstairs all morning. Generally Tuesdays, the ladies come over and we sew here at the house. No one showed up today, so I just had to sew by myself. Pout, pout!! Actually got something done. Was working on a free standing lace project and wanted to finish it - I did and then I was working on another runner - not the one for my partner, just working on one. Well, I finished it, but had to laugh out loud - it has a very definite left and right side and lots of small pieces to put on those left and right. Somehow I got the small pieces backwards (or was it upside down?), so the pattern is not quite right and again, one of the larger pieces is backwards - I have no idea how that happened - and I decided I'm not going to recut and redo. It was a real learning experience on a pattern I'll probably never make again!!! Obviously won't put alot into the quilting and finishing.
    Did finish my partner's runner and am in the process of quilting it. Decided to hand quilt it since it is small - that'll make it more special. Don't know exactly when it'll be finished, though and will go in the mail right after that...

    I want toys i am hoping I have enough this weekend to finish that quilt i showed you so I can get it out to be quilted. I've pretty much decided I won't try to have it AT christmas cause I'm too broke to give all her siblings a gift as well but it's really kind of a coming of age gift anyways, just had an arbitrary date of christmas to be done, but I want it done in THIS year so I can focus on other stuff next year like finishing my swap quilts.. haha. My siggie quilt and my boom quilt. And maybe learning to quilt one of them MYSELF. probably the siggie one. Who wants to quilt my boom one for me? that's going too a friend who doesn't know anything about quilting so you can suck all you want. heheh.

    I am fortunate, my partner has stated she is not picky so I can make most anything. Lots of different ideas keep coming to me then I think oh the snowmen in blue would be nice but partner has not stated if that would be acceptable so still pondering. This may fall into January to finish. can't find much time anywhere for some reason and I am getting back logged on quilts to be done and I am doing some Hurricane Sandy quilts so need to ge tthose done so someone can have it by Christams.
    So Nancia, we will be the end of the time mailers.

    Okay - question time!!!
    When you are making a runner - lets say rectangle - and your material has picture on it - where to you make the picture face? do you do only one side or ends or what???
    I know there is never a right or wrong way - but it is preventing me from going forward =-
    so what would you do??

    Whatever the fabric says to you and how you would want it in your house is where I'd put it. If I got it and it was on an end, I'd put it so the pic went from the head of the table to facing down the table so my guests to see it, if it was in the middle I'd put in facing the outside of the table so everyone walking through would see it. Hope this makes sense. Bottom line it wouldn't really matter. Start sewing it will be fine.
    On another thought, I've had people send me an e-mail and ask that I post the runner I sent. My partner's colors were blue so this is what I sent to "quilting", her screen name. I hope she will use it or can give it to someone that she thinks would enjoy it.Name:  DSCF0969.JPG

    Where did you get the pattern? Did you need to get one of those special wedge rulers to make that? Ooooh I want one of those!

    It does take the wedge ruler, saw a pic of one on the internet and knew I wanted to make one. Ordered the ruler and this was the first one I made.......4 more since. I really like it and actually it doesn't use that much material. Just the graduation of colors you want to use. It's 2 wof strips each of 8 colors

    Jaba, if your swap partner doesn't want it, she can send it to me - I'll PM my address. I'm not much into blues, but I'd take that in a heart beat! I managed to get some quilting done on my table runner today - will work more on it tonight. I'm going to get it done before Christmas or else....

    WAIT QUILTER MOMMA I know your making mine! I am not picky! and Jaba you sure you have my address right because I went to the post office today and no table runner was waiting. That should be here by now! I love it the design is absolutely cool. My tablerunner that headed North to Alaska..ok no it did not should be arriving anytime now to the lucky recipient! I finished my second dq top for another swap today grand news. I think I can now focus on my second dq. My partner will be WARMING up to it soon I hope.

    Kathleen just read your quote. It comes pretty close to my experiences exactly and I do try to follow through with that thought at all times.

    Lets see, on the question of facing patterns on a runner if I can and have TWO pieces then they face the head and end of a table. If its one piece then it faces the side of the table so when you put it on and people are approaching the table that would be the side it faced. Of course lay it out, if you hate it turn it. See that is not keepingyou from starting at all! tada! get cutting girl get cutting!

    I bought some fresh crab today for my dear one. However I never ever eat crab. So what do I serve? cocktail sauce or tarter with it? I love lobster so I always have that steamed with hot garlic butter but crab dunno.. and I am sure he wants it cold. I have some cappino sauce I could put it in but that is warmed. oh you experts tell me tell me!

    jaba,

    you are so creative - I think your table runner is exquisite - I have never seen that pattern and don't think I would be brave enought to tackle it - Beautiful work!

    Thanks everyone for your nice comments, I sincerely appreciate them!! Sorry Brat, you weren't my partner, TamMoo you just have to have the ruler and you CAN do it. The spiral strata ruler is everything, different than a regular spiral ruler.
