    It's been quiet all over lately. I've been gone visiting family because my cousin who has MS isn't doing well. It's not as bad as it was when I was first called about visiting, but he's loosing his mental faculties, and that won't come back. He's lived 15 years longer than average for someone diagnosed as an adult, so making it 21 years before being confined to a wheelchair full time 4 years ago is a triumph in itself.

    So on the way home, I stopped at a LQS outside Valdosta, GA in Lake Park. If anyone is in that area or passing through, I encourage you to stop by Gone Quiltin'. The owner is a sweet and very helpful lady. Of course, I had to get a few things. I picked up another breast cancer fabric for my best friend's throw quilt, a panel that makes a child's book (which I'll send to Denmark), a batik piece that's about 2-1/2 yards to go with the FQ's I bought a couple months ago, and she had an adorable embroidered breast cancer mug rug I picked up to give my best friend with her quilt. I actually held myself back to be honest, so I did well!

    Send me some positive prayers and energy, please... found a house that would meet our needs and is available right away. We go look on Friday and would have 10 days to move. Shew...

    Happy sewing everyone!

    Prayers and thoughts to you Traci! .... and hoping the move goes well for you. Moving is a challenge but getting settled makes it all worthwhile.
    I've been experimenting with patterns and blocks, making 6 just alike challenge my patience but I will get it done. Batik is so much fun to play with! I'll have to get out my camera to post some pictures of progress.
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    Update:

    We found a house on Monday and were accepted. Picked up the keys on Tuesday and have already started bringing stuff over. Phew... what a relief.

    I will still be leaving either Tues or Wed next week and back in CA abouts 7/14. We will be travelling thru Texas on the way to Minnesota, then back through Washington to visit Mariposa on the way home.

    If you're ready to ship, PM me for my work address and the packages will wait for me here, else I will be back in town to mail as well.

    Thank you for all the prayers... Looking forward to some normalcy and being able to enjoy my new quilting space.

    So what part of Texas will you be going through? If you are in my neck of the woods let me know.

    Cindy-

    We will be staying with a friends from Minnesota either next Wednesday or Thursday, depending on when we're able to get out of here. I would have loved to go to the shop with the Batiks with you!!

    Would it be easier to just hold the shipping until you get back and then you can send us all a new address to send to instead of packages waiting at the job?

    Good thing I live in Washington as well. Love the Buggy Barn, never pass up an opportunity to go there with someone. They have remodeled and expanded the barn out so you will get to see more. Be ready to look up at the ceiling where more quilts hang. Such a wonderful shop to go to. Look forward to meeting up with you, Tracibug, and Mariposa.

    I will have all of the blocks sent to my office as my new home mail box is about the size of the old Sears Catalog... they obviously weren't prepared for a crafty person moving in!!

    If you wouldn't mind waiting until about July 10 to send, then the pile won't be so big at least.

    How many people and sets are in this swap? Is anyone still working on the blocks? I am just wondering if there are enough people to swap out 6 sets.

    I am in for 6 sets, with Tracibug being on vacation, not sure if she will be on the board.

    Two sets done here but slowed down since there did not seem activity or people on this thread any more. encouraging to see others are done or are still working on their sets. So do you think there will be enough so those that do 6 sets can trade all out? I am making actually 7 of each, keeping 1, and hoping to swap all blocks out for different blocks and different colors. I like making scrappy quilts. Thank you all for posting.

    I have made one set and am working on another two sets .... hopefully will get 4 done by deadline. Since they are not due to Traci until the end of July, I have set them aside to work on other projects. By the time Traci returns from vacation I will be in batik block mode again .....
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    So far I have two and a half sets done. One set that I was using different fabrics for each block I ended up making a bunch of one color way that I really liked and completed the top a bit ago. Now to get back to the set I was working on when I ran out of aqua thread.

    Grand daughter has been here this week and it's sewing, have enjoyed it so much. Then Elisabrat and Steve have moved here from CA and she is getting settled. Will try to take some pics tomorrow of my blocks so you can see them. Made all 6 sets a different color , but each set is the same colors.

    I've got 4 sets done. I'm thinking I might need to back out of the last 2 sets. It all depends on how this week goes, I suppose.
