    I received a gorgeous snowman runner today from Liz22 along with an angel ornament, snowman ornament and a huge chocolate bar. I will post a picture tomorrow after work. Thanks Liz I love the pattern you chose, your stitching and all the goodies.

    nooooooooo, anasty! it is supposed to be forwarded to ME. elisabrat can't eat it because of her kidneys so i'm supposed to get it! actually, i am beginning to feel like calamity jane. ( and some good chocolate would cheer me right up!). i grabbed a can of progresso soup and YOWZERS! i'm pretty sure my thumb popped out of its socket. i was able to squeeze it back into place but it was an all new world of pain, so i have it wrapped and i'm trying not to use it or wiggle it so it will get re-settled. means actual quilting may have to wait a bit. i feel so bad for my partner.....i may have to share some of that chocolate with her...........hmmmmmmm, trying to decide if i feel THAT bad or not?! i'll get back to ya.

    This candy bar is huge so there is plenty for us all if I can keepmy hubby out of it. I really am so fortunate to have received a runner that is a perfect fit for me. Liz22 did a marvelous job.

    Ouch! Nancia, i hate when that happens. You are having a time of it, aren't you. I'm sittin on the bench and if it is you I am waiting for, I will forgive you! I'd love to share that chocolate, but I have got to stop eating all that sweet stuff. Love seeinag all the lovelies coming in. those mittens are sew cute. The chickens, good job, love em. They are all great. Can't wait to see what comes my way. For some reason this swap went out early from me. All my others this month were late. Just too much to do and not enough time to do it. Retirement, oh how I long for it.

    Nope, isn't her. Your partner has mailed yours but did have a delay due to a broken machine. Should be arriving any day now

    Well nothing today ... good thing my mailman knows I'm stalking the mailbox and not him. LOL. I'm going back to my project. I guess it's time for lunch first and then back to the TAW that I'm working. I'll continue to stalk the mailbox tomorrow.

    Toodles,

    I absolutely LOVE your runner! It suits me just perfectly!
    I love your placemats! Anastasia had sent me a link to a pic of what your likes were...I am pretty sure this was one of the pics...so that is another reason I figured it would be ok to get rid of the solid green backing and go with the new one! I have to say, I really like the one I ended up using...so much so that I ordered and just got in today several yards of different "bright and patterned" fabrics from Connectingthreads.com...and I can't wait to use them, especially as backings!!! Its a whole new world!! (um, is there a song there??..LOL)

    Thank you! Yep, I did send her a link to a pic of my placemats. Not sure I ever posted them here, but I guess I should. I can't wait to see what else you do with your new fabrics. I love my runner so much! You broke out of the mold, so now the sky is the limit!!!

    Hi,
    Not sure if you mean the mittens on the runner I made, but if so, I wish I was creative enough to come up with that pattern. It is by Erin Russek, I will put a link below...just be smarter than yours truly, as for the life of me I could not find anywhere the actual mitten shape pattern...so I made up my own and had to cut it down 3 or 4 times to make it fit in the square...then I went and looked back at her pattern...lo and behold there was a button that said "Click here for mitten pattern"...Now I know that evil button was not there before! In this grand universe it had disappeared for ME and only re-appeared when "it" knew I had finally got the right size mitten done...um, 'scuse me, I am off to refresh the aluminum foil cap I have on my head, too...gotta keep out those mitten, er martian radio waves!!....Bwahahahaaaa..
    Here are some links:
    http://erinrussek.typepad.com/.servi...lter.q=mittens
    http://erinrussek.typepad.com/files/mittens.pdf

    Here is a link to a girl who made it, how cute is hers!! And, she obviously can fmq!!!
    http://quiltinggallery.com/2011/09/0...erins-mittens/
    And lastly I just found where Erin is offering a new free pattern, she is such a creative and generous lady! Here is the link to it:

    well, without knowing who your partners are-all I can say is-I did not get a runner yet. if that helps you girls that say your gift arrived, and you have not heard from the giftee.
