    Wow, you ladies are so talented. I think I need to search for an amateur board. I do believe I have been on the professional site.

    I woke up to 63 degrees here in Auburn, AL today. The forecast is for a high of 76 today. Very un-January weather we're having, and everyone's been so sick here because of the swing back and forth from hot to cold. First of the week, the low was still around 40, and they're calling for it to be back around freezing by Tuesday night.

    Since my runner is done and I don't have any other swap names yet, I'm hoping to get a couple other sewing projects done this weekend. I have a fairly simple playmat that I have to do for my boyfriend to take it to his nephew in Denmark in 11 days that I got the fabric for a couple days ago. I also have some cute owl fabric that I'm going to use to make a tissue box holder/trash receptacle for a friend's MIL who is in assisted living. She always sticks everything in her pockets, then my friend takes her laundry home and ends up with a washer and dryer full of washed tissues. She uses a walker, and it goes everywhere with her, so if we can get her in the habit of using this, since I'm making it to attach to her walker, then it'll make it easy for everyone, including the nurses where she lives. My friend said if I make this, I may end up with a home full of retirees who all want one too!

    Twinkie, you're too modest. Anastasia's been quilting less than a year. I've been back into sewing at all less than 2 years. I think there's plenty of us in this group who will tell you that we're far from professionals. You fit in here with us just fine.

    Well I got mine in the mail this early am after being up with it 'til 3 am 'cuz someone thought that today was the 15th after looking at the wrong calendar!!! I sure hope that my partner likes it. You should get it around Tuesday the 15th.

    Well that is one of 2 small projects off this month's list. I'm off to grab some COFFEE, food, tv and handstitching in that order. HAGD!!

    Toodles,

Either one will work for my "swappees" tastes...so I thought I would ask for opinions...and then pick one to send her...Hard to see in pic, but I did decorative machine stitch around each ornament with shiny gold Sulky thread...the ornament "holders" are shiny silver thread applique...Thanks for y'all's input..

    oldcatlady I love that Jinny Beyer snowflake fabric; can't wait to see your finished table runner.

    It's kind of a windy cold day today - everyone have a great weekend.
    Be good to yourself - do one thing each day that makes you smile.

    OK, I'm taking a break. One of my cats came and sat down on my work. I think she knew how frustrated I was. I did the most boneheaded thing (oops, can I say that here?) I found a really cute table runner for february and decided to make that on the back of my winter side so it can be reversed. I made the feb one 1st. It had theme blocks and connecting blocks. I thought I would change the theme blocks to winter and use the same layout and connecting blocks so the quilting would be good for both sides. I measured the blocks and found a pattern the same size for the winter side, as I was putting it together today I realized the feb blocks were 8" unfinished and I used 8.5" unfinished for my winter side!!! OMG!!! I had to rip apart the connecting blocks to make them bigger so everything would fit. What was supposed to be a simple day has turned into an horrendous one. So now my quilting is going to look really bad on the feb side but can't be helped. The winter side is not as forgiving. I can not believe I did that! The one side is a little bigger, going to try to make it work or will have to give up on the idea of a reversible runner. What a day!

    Oldcatlady, that's really close to what happened to me with mine, but all was OK in the end when my partner was happy with it.

    Hey all, I just sent out reminders to those people I don't recall getting a PM from letting me know that they have mailed their runner. There's only a few days left and I know I'm bustin my rear to get mine done too. I know at least one of those people has had technical difficulties and I did notify their partner of that. I know one of those people has been out of town nearly all this time.. Let's get crackin. If you were on that list and HAVE mailed and I just missed it somehow, let me know.


    If I don't hear back from everyone in that list by mail date, I'm gonna start calling!!!!

    Jaba, I thought you would have changed your avatar by now. Sorry about the game - it was exciting, though and I did lots of hand work during it (during both games, actually). I have a church meeting this afternoon and will miss part of the first game, darn, darn.
    I have been in touch with Anastasia about my partner - and if you are one who has posted here about mailing in the next few days, okay, BUT if you haven't started, get with it!! I'm waiting and I've never been known to be too patient! If it doesn't come soon, I'll resort to crying and that's not pretty. Oh well, back to the TV and football.

    I've been strongly thinking about it, I'm out of my misery, don't have to worry about the winning and losing part. Now just hope 1 of my squares on the super bowl boards I'm on will win, then I'll be in the $. Yippee more fabric!! Do you want me to post your little surprise for my avatar? Think I'll take a pic of Matilda and show her off. And yep you and I are not the most patient people in the world. The only thing I can say is I didn't start throwing things at the TV yesterday, didn't want to replace that big screen. Wouldn't let Bill either since his GreenBay lost. Guess I'll have to root for the Seahawks now, they're the closest team to us and we have gone to several of their home games since 1 son lives close.

    Yea gimme ideas for next swap theme and I'll work on the posting and get it posted soon. I CAN NOT participate this time, I can't do anything on a deadline this time, too many classes and too much homework and zero free time. *stares at Le Brat* that means you woman.

    Here's some ideas


    Easter
    Spring
    St. Patty's Day

    New quilting buddy

Size:  1.23 MBMeet Matilda everyone ( my new avatar). Vanogay sent this to me for a little MardiGras quilting buddy. She can be a slave at times too! wonder where that comes from, thinking Vanogay put a curse on her just for me. She sits right by my sewing machine and is lots of help.

    Jaba, she's adorable! LOL, she may have been charmed too if she's a slave driver!

    I was going to get on my sewing that's going to Denmark today, then everything has gone to blah and I can't work on it. I need another 2 yards of the blue fabric I bought for it and I don't have enough white flannel for the batting. OK, I'll work on the other little project. That won't take long. Oh crud, the woman at the sewing center gave me the wrong velcro. Guess I'll have to go to Hobby Lobby! Make my list for sewing needs and groceries, go to Walmart for a gift card for my brother, my boyfriend's shampoo, and this flavored water he's ga-ga about. They don't have the right flavor of water AND I forget the gift card. OK, well, I can do an e-card, since I'm late already & just ship his hot sauce to him. Drive across town to Hobby Lobby & what a numpty am I? They're closed on Sunday!

    Well, at least we got groceries. Guess I can work on my 3rd project this afternoon/evening instead. I can do the bulk of it before I need the velcro for it anyway.

    Teaser #5 --- little bit west and maybe a little bit south.

    Look what's ready to go in the mail tomorrow......
    This is "Snow Happens". The squares started out 2 5/8" strips, color on inside of 2 whites. Cut a again in 2 5/8" strips, then placed in an off set and put together. Pretty easy.
