    Sure you can "brat" anytime you know that by now. Bill said to tell everyone not to worry about snacks, he'll cater to us. Hmmm, wondering what he wants to do or where he wants to go that he hasn't told me about yet? Don't know if I'll have that little project quite done yet Vanogay for you to do the binding but you never know, stranger things have happened around this house. Is Steve coming with you "brat", the guys can have a fishing day on Sunday.
    And not to forget anyone, how's MaryT doing today??? You need to check in once in awhile missy, let us know you finally got out of the snow and arrived. Honestly hope your Mom is slowing mending and getting much better.

    Hi, I want to send a big thank you to Buslady for the wonderful batik table runner. She also included a small mug rug made from the leftover scraps/squares. Pus, she included a pair of warm fuzzy booties, and a special notepad with a golden butterfly on it! Thanks so much! I really liked this surprize in the mail, after having an awful manic ac Monday!

    Twinkie, please no football photos (GO IRISH! WAR EAGLE!)

    I felt the same way about what I was thinking I'll probably soon receive compared to what I shipped out. But, LoupEsprit seemed to be very, very happy about it, so that made me very happy too!

    Twinkie thanks for the nice words. I had to keep my daughter from stealing it. I think they are all neat in their own ways different colors sizes shapes .. and all from quilters gifting to other quilters. Thats the best part. Out of quilty friendship. You cant beat that. I so wished you had posted more. It makes it easier to figure out what your partner wants who they are.. so its personalized for you. I hope everyone posts more the next round to ensure all are happy with their treats.

    I just found out my partner was VJC.. ok. anyone here know who that is? here is a picture of the tablerunner she sent to me. then one that is a bit closer to show the quilting in the center. Boy one day when I grow up I might try that. not any year soon sorry. Name:  tablerunner swap 002.jpg

    Ta da.. i did it.. I beat those wavy borders into submission and they are now at acceptable levels.. but no.. I'm not going to show you a pic there will be one more teaser pic before it goes out which will probably be next mon.. you know.. right at deadline time.. it's how I roll. I have to wash my batting cause it's all wrinkly and I want it flat.. so I'll be doing that this week and then this weekend i will quilt and bind the poor dear and get it packaged to go.

    Now.. dinner and bedtime!

    Boy, I hope you don't wait until "...next mon". Mon is an abbreviation for month - next mon is TOO late. If it's for me, I'm ready now, not next month. Ship it out!!! But wait, mon could also be an abbreviation for Monday couldn't it? - is that what you meant? I know I'm not the sleepy one, although I did wake up at 4 a.m. and that was it for that night's sleep.

    Elisabrat, looking at her post history, she must have joined the swap by PM & never posted in the group. I hope whoever was supposed to send to her got enough info from her original swap info to make something she'll be happy with. I love what she sent you. It doesn't scream "winter" so it will be great for year around use. I don't think I'd wait several years to try to quilt like she did in the center. Of all the ways to quilt in an open field, that's probably the safest from my perspective. I have problems with open field quilting, but I'm an accountant. We usually believe you're supposed to color inside the lines, lol. I think that's why I tend to use SID for almost everything. The prospect of FMQ is inviting, but executing that concept, well I wouldn't even know where to start, and I'd be too scared I'd make a mistake, lol.

    Sorry I can't post as much as some people do. I am 70 years old and raising 2 teenage kids rescued from an abusive household and I really have my hands full. I worked full time until I severely injured both my shoulders and ended up with 4 screws in each of them. I don't think I will sign up for any other swaps until my live smooths out a little. Not complaining, but am lucky to find the time to check the newsletter each morning before they get up. I have to drive 60 miles a day taking them to and from school as the bus doesn't come this way. Thanks for listening

    Actually, Dusty, everyone has to be a fan of someone and I wouldn't think of posting photos of the football game. There will be enough of them on the TV and in newspapers. I was referring to photos of the runner Elisabrat sent.
    Sorry if there was a misunderstanding.

    Twinkie, oh I know. No misunderstanding, just making a joke. My ex and his whole family are Alabama fans. They're going to be impossible to deal with for the next year after as bad as Auburn was this year and they won last night. We watched the game with a Notre Dame grad and by the time they were down 14 points he was ready to quit watching sports altogether, lol.

    Elisabrat - love the runner VJC did for you - it's beautiful and will be nice for any time of the year; an awesome job quilting as well. Wish I wasn't so intimidated by the whole quilting process - guess that's why I mainly do stitch in the ditch. Anywho my runner should be able to be shipped tomorrow - I worked late into the night and pinned the binding on this morning before coming to work. Hope that the recipient will appreciate the winter mitten theme. I'll post a photo when it's done and you can all wonder who the recipient is - wish I had made one for myself.

    Love that table runner, looks like the colors in my dining room. Are you sure your name was on that package Elisabrat?
    Vanogay I should have called you, we started our day at the same time. Last night was not a good night at my house...had one of those "it's got to get better" evenings. Hate those! You just toss and turn all night long and just finally give up and get up. Thank heaven it's a new day!

    Thought I would show you the shelf/cabinet my DH made for me to display my cups/saucers and special knick knacks. It sets just behind the table pictured with the runner.

    Anastasia, why do you "wash" the batting? Just stick it in the dryer for about 10 minutes with a wet rag and the wrinkles come right on out.

    Very pretty runner, is the brown and green pinecones? Not 1 in the mail for me today maybe tomorrow. Was working to finish my batik blocks for that swap and the quilt along blocks and my machine just started growling. Clean it all again, just took it in for service about 4 weeks ago, still growling. Tomorrow got to swap out machines but this one is my very favorite. Anyone who likes batiks check out that thread posted by tracibug, I love them and look forward to another batik quilt. stitchingpost do you have my name?? I'm really trying to be patient but it's hard to do.

    love the shelfwith the cups and trinkets. Reminds me of one my mother had all lined up with pretties .. til an earthquake came and well half as many they went into her china hutch. I miss those. She never had tea in anything other than her china cups.Good memories. Thanks for posting the picture. I was so worried it was wrong. Our dear Anastasia does not like pinwheels at all. Something about clowns when she was a stroller.. so now I worry about anyone else not liking them either I love them. and that cardinal tablerunner was my second tablerunner I just knew it. Now I have to keep guessing again. sigh.. wait could be that blue and white one from Anastasia.. could be never know. I will dreamabout that one til I get my tablerunner. then I will have a new dream table runner of my very own. One for each room.Then I need one for the sideboard and one for the top of my dresser thelong one and then.. you see one can never have enough runners.

    Ooh, Robin Lee's could be mine! It's got earthy colors like my living/dining/kitchen does. What a cute snowman!

    I'm in love with Anastasia's too!

    Anastisia's Table Runner Swap

    I found this odd assortment of mittens - do they by chance belong to you?

    I tried the wet rag, that didn't work, so I tried dampening it and hanging it over the shower curtain, that didn't work. I think I give up. Or else I'll have to totally saturate it and then throw it in there. I dunno. I'll try the dryer again

    Ooo mittens! They shall protect me from the pinwheels!
