    YEA!!! I'm done. Bad news is I couldn't get the 2 to match up so it's not reversible but the good news is I have a table runner top all done for another swap if it matches a theme I'm mailing tomorrow via priority so should be home by wednesday I hope. It came out a little bigger than I expected so hope it is not too big! I will post it in my album but the colors will give it away so don't look if you want a suprise! It's NOT going north or east

    seasonal themes would be great, a lot of options for any holiday that falls in there or just a general seasonal look.

    Dusty'smomma, thanks I love her. She made me sew like a mad woman today. Yep summer fun you could do 4th of July easily. I seem to change my runners and the wreath on my front door for the holiday or season. We'll let you ride this time Anastasia to get your "stuff" in order, not again mind you, just this time if you'll just do another for us and let us swap. If you need some help I will volunteer as long as you post everything. I don't know how. Hope tomorrow my runner comes, I want to see it. Robinlee that is so cute, it would blend with my kitchen since it's green and black. Is it coming to me???

    tee hee.. Robinlee is not yours jaba But close. You guys don't want something sooner than 4th of july? Or was this kind of time frame good for the majority of you not overachievers *ahem mary, jaba*?

    Oh no Anastasia, just spring so you "could" do 4th of July if you wanted. Just my not so humble opinion you know. Or someone can make me 1 out of May baskets since that's my b-day. Remember my mother and I delivering on my b-day, leave a basket on the porch, ring the bell and run Jan run. It really was fun. She said it was for May day because I was such a surprise. Hope she never regretted that comment 'cause I still miss her. Hmmmm, close but not, you must be making me one? Get it in the mail missy, I want to see. Sorry to be so impatient

    I may be able to do one sooner - but if you're too busy to host a 4th of July one, I'll be your backup.

    what about a FOOD theme. there is tons o fabric with everything from candy, sweets, fruits veggies. etc. or-nature. and the 4th o july is always welcome. unless maybe your from outta the country. maybe the partner could tell us what the country's colors are and the swapper could design around that

    Robinlee - I would love to see those snowmen arrive at my house - what a wonderful runner - I love the border that you added.

    Another option would be to pair people and let them make whatever theme they decide on for each other..

    Also no.. but my own runner might be a day late going out.. not positive yet at this point, I'm about to go sew on it because I got my phlebotomy reading done, so depending on how far I get tonight, determines how much I have to do tomorrow.. the thing that will slow me down will be the hand stitching the binding down when I get to that point.

    YOU MISSED ME!!! Iknow you did because everyone felt so bad they decided to finally chatter away. thank you for covering for me (lol). ok lots happening. lets see everyone is waiting for runners and the peaks are amazing once again. All levels play Twinkie.. its fun and hey I restarted last July quilting from scratch.. so newbies all over the place and good old vets right here too.

    Idea of the year: we go partners next time, if you write and write your partner and they dont respond do not work on their project until your confident they are with you on this. People apparently sign up and wander off and forget . it happens and some of you know from experience that its not a picnic swapping with someone who wont fulfill their obligation. Seem like that is a good idea? we go partners picked by our swap leader fearless Anastasia! tada!

    what do we swap? I say there should be a theme but also like in the dq swap if you and your partner agree to make it a different theme between you go for it. no quilt police. (great idea grin grin big old grin).

    And themes.. ok. I like themes. I think no more than a six week turn around. less time to forget the project. um.. my mind says spring is the up and now as if you start it soon, that puts it end of feb/march right and well all those springy months sitting right there. and I own oodles of easter fabric but summer is good too.. oh I dont care. sign me up for one please. bring it on!

    Well, sorry Jaba. Looks like you'll have to pick another team to root for in the coming battle this weekend. I"ll try to get there for the super bowl!! Or you can come this way and get out of the show for a weekend! Bring Matilda. Yeah - don't care who's playing, I'll be watching and rooting. I've been a die hard Saints fan since early 60's. They haven't been much of a winning team through the years, but I still love them. And yes, Brat, I told Jaba it was a voodoo doll, but I kept the pins. Didn't want that power falling into someone who's uninitiated in the powers!!!
    Love the snowmen and the colors are great for me as well. I've got a doctors appointment this morning and then a hair cut, hopefully when I get home there'll be a package or two waiting for me at the mailbox. Later

    ohh Kathleen is gonna get all prettied up so she can receive her tablerunner. Ohh laa laa. me, going to wash my hair while it dries I can wait for mine. Lots of floating runners!!! I do NOT drink decaf oh what a suprise I know! but I am limited to the amount I drink so I drink Ponyexpress coffee. 2.5 x the amount of caffeine in a regular cup. gotta get it while its good. also I would sleep all day if I didnt have it so its a good plan. I also do not eat those mint things argh awful. My husband eats a whole box in one day. andes .. blicko. would give me a stomach ache. my big thing lately is.. apples. I can not get enough of them. also limited to one a day.. guess its the you cant have it thing makes you want it ten times more. maybe I need Marybeths apple pie fabric.. a nice runner out of apples. If we do food.. can you make me say a fruit item? see putting in requests now. No potatos for me unless they hail from our resident queen of all potato growers Jaba. Darn you guys if you missed it she grew these potatos that were dog sized. HUGE ..

    oh my turnovers just came out of the oven.. more than enough to share. The boys at work here like to have a sweet snack in the morning so I suprise them once a week with a goody. Today is their lucky day. anyone who has to work in 14 degree weather outside deserves a warm wake up. me, working at the sewing machine today. its my real time addiction.. fabric.. ahhhhh.. just one piece.. ok just another piece.. what the heck no one is looking .. a PILE..

    Lots of suggestions for you Anastasia, you decide. And when are you going to post the new sign up? I'm in and I don't care which one it is. Think I got table runners on my brain now, just want to sew them, hmmm think it's Matilda talking to me, bless her. Oh and Vanogay my part of our little agreement is in the mail, you should get it later this week, hope you like how it turned out. If you don't send it back 'cause I do.
    Don't forget Miss Ana I'm watching for the new one....

    As soon as it's confirmed that everyone has mailed then I'll write up the new one. But probably this weekend. I made mucho progress on my sewing last night and realized that it takes a little planning to quilt a geometric design in the ditch if you don't want to be backtracking repeatedly. So uh yeah.. there's backtracking hahah. But no puckers!!! rwar.

    jaba - used the heart runner last night on the dinner table and eveyone ooh'd and ahhh'd over it. We are very happy you sent that one to us. If you have a need to keep making them you already have my address just make and send away to ME!!!!

    Go Ravens! I am a Steelers fan but sure would like to see the Ravens make it to the top. Be interesting this weekend to see which teams win and go the whole way.

    I did get my runner to my partner mailed and on its way. Sent the confirmation number to Anna and so now onto the next project..... which one was that again.... I have so many things to get done.... oh yeah that dq that is behind in getting out to poor Tammoo. She is so patient with me. It is on the longarm so hopefully get that out in the mail this week, then onto two football quilts, poor Denver and go Ravens quilts. Funny isn't it that I am doing those two teams for quilts. But I am. Need them done by this weekend. Doing D9P with both I think. Almost done with my swaps.

    Id love a doll swap.
    Just think of the possibilities.
    if we dont like them, we can make them into voodoo or donation dolls.

    dabbler312 maybe I'll get your name for SP again, then I'll try to remember to make that for you. In the meantime I will keep you in mind. Got a couple of side swaps going now for table runners and am doing them. lynnie my little Matilda is bringing me lots of quilting ideas, so the spell in her is fabulous! And she is made out of porcelain and satin.

    Well, came home from hair cut and the mail was here and a package - just not the table runner type package from the swap. My pills came from the pharmacy - well, my eye drops, anyway. I'm on so many allergy meds that my body no longer makes tears - now my eyes suffer. So, I'm on Restasis. Just got a refill and they sent it in a big box - thought I really had something there. Oh, well. I'll be home all day tomorrow, so can meet the mailman and make him look all through his jeep to see if my package is lost or something. R you old enough to remember Car 54 Where Are You? Well, this is Table Topper Where Are You?
