    I figured out how to use my cell phone as a hotspot!! Big step for the technology challenged!
    Here are my fabrics - you will each get your own color and I explained it (I hope) in the note. please ask whatever questions you may have - and please have fun with this.
    Just returned from visit to Mom's doctor - they took bandage off her arm and then told her how careful she needs to be as the skin is so very thin and delicate and needs time to heal before she starts PT. So I will be taking her with me to FL on 20th and have to return to NY on Feb 5th. Good news- your F8's should arrive in FL by the time I arrive, and my stash is there - so I can go through it and bring material back with me.

Cant wait to see what beautiful work you do with this fabric!
    Cannot wait to play with this gorgeous fabric, Joan! Love the peacock-y colors against that chocolate, and then the gold to set them all off.

    Yummy rainbow colors, TG. Hope your mom heals well and soon.

    Marija, if you hit the "reply with quote" option, the original post you are replying to will come up with your reply. That really helps us understand what you are referring to in your reply.

    Thank you sew...Ive loved this fabric for a couple of years...glad I'm finally gonna do something with it. Traveling g.. my sister just had her hip replaced and rod in leg removed. When she got to the nursing home today it looked like she had been in a cat fight on her leg. My neice says its where they yanked the tape off her leg to replace it with a smaller bandage. It sure took the skin with it! Glad you mom is better..Im sure she will love being in FL with you!

    People may not remember what you looked like or what you said but they will always remember how you made them feel!

    I just finished some blocks for a ugly fabric challenge. Fabric I received was pretty bad. As part of the challenge I had to add blue fabric to make it more interesting. Blocks are finished photographed and ready to send. Helped take my mind off unpleasantness.

    Finally quit procrastinating and contacted the cemetery on buying a plot for Mom. She is on a downward spiral but hoping she will pop back like she has in the past. Just getting all of my ducks in a row.

    (((((HUGE HUGS))))) Terri! That had to be a really hard thing to do. Hoping for the best for your mother, and will be thinking of you too.

    Joan, LOVE that fabric can't wait to work w/ it.

    Terri ................. what!!!!!!! you tease us w/ tales of ugly fabric and no pictures????

    Marietta post a pic of the block or a link some of us may be able to figure the math.

    Terriamn - hugs and wishes for peace in your soul winging their way to you
    Joan - That fabric is so pretty I'm going to hate to cut into it. It looks like kaleidoscopes
    TravelingGramma - That's going to make a beautiful rainbow of a quilt

    Janice - I'll have to send a box with all the fabric for both BOOMs in it. The post offices around here don't have the bubble wrap envelopes and the ones I ordered haven't arrived. I split 2 of the plain priority envelopes, one envelope for each BOOM. Guess I'm not packing them as neatly as last time, but all the air IS squished out. Like Eeyore says, Oh bother. *chuckles*

    Well, I finished cutting my fabric tonight and realized that I did not have (or need) 19 pieces of the Mickey fabric so eight of you will get this fabric called Circus Menagerie that I will use in a baby quilt. I am sure when I bought it I thought it was cute, but it could be considered kind of creepy. But, I am sure you will make it cute again.

    Funny circus fabric, Bibliostone! We'll have fun working with that one.

    Terri, that ugly fabric reminds me of chalk drawings on the sidewalk. Good job with the blocks.
