    Here's the fun fabric I've chosen from my stash. The quilt we make with it will either be a donation into Baltimore's foster care system (a friend of mine is a social worker) or it'll be a tummy time quilt for when my grandtwins come to play. I'll decide that later.

    I'm asking that Sooner Boomers use any color you see in the cupcake fabric except black or white.

    I have plenty of this fabric, so if you mess up, don't be afraid to ask me to send you another Fat 8th.
    What a fun quilt this will be.

    Ah! There's Sooners and there's Laters. Actually, I should be off to find the training wheels crowd. But please know this forum has had a positive influence on me. I've been staring down an unfinished quilt for DGD for quite some time and it has defiantly been staring back. Today I started up my sewing machine and began an attack. The first lines of stitch in the ditch have been drawn and now the battle is on. The other UFO's in the sewing room are beginning to shiver in their boots. Who rah!

    Wow, that is an incredible quilt, Terri! I bet you were surprised to see it there.

    chickadee, you’re too funny. I love the way you write!

    I’m happy my fabric made it ok. Now no worries.

    I'm looking forward to working on these blocks. Yesterday I bought and downloaded a new embroidery block set so I hope to work on that this weekend. I'm very new to the embroidery thing - and really enjoying it.

    Terriamn, that is a neat quilt. I've been wanting to do a NYB quilt for some time, I really like the layout of that one!

    Thanks for the morning laugh!

    Tomorrow my DH is going to be sitting the huge State Journeymen electrician exam. I can't help but be nervous for him. I know he will do well, but this is the exam he has been studying for all four and a half years of his apprenticeship and the pressure seems huge. I have been praying all week that it goes well! I'll be going with him for support and MIL will babysit the girls. We plan to have a date lunch afterwards. I'm looking forward to that! We don't go on many dates because of the girls (and I'm terrible at trusting high school babysitters!)

    Today I'll be cleaning the house; I don't want MIL to think we live in a barn, lol!

    Quick FYI. I believe the bad weather in various parts of the country is wreaking havoc with package delivery. Only half of those due in today have made it to my town and those are out for delivery. I know the others will show up sooner or later. (Yes, I said it!) Anyway, Ill post as they roll in.

    Macy are you doing embroidery on a machine or by hand? I just bought a PE770 from Terri and didn't use it for a few months because it scared me. I am on a PE770 facebook page and listening to all that "might" happen had me terrified. Ive made 10 or so 5x 7 hoop blocks about "friendship" and am going to try to get them set into a quilt someday..The only problem Ive had so far is breaking thread. Havent learned to make my own designs or do monogram yet but I will...Its addictive. I had forgotten about the OLD quilts Ive made but one of the first was a hand embroderied blocks then sewn them together...NO "quilting" because I didn't know you were suppose to quilt it so it didn't last too long on our bed! Life is a lesson...…
    People may not remember what you looked like or what you said but they will always remember how you made them feel!

    Thank you. This quilt is going to my great-grandson for his big bed because he has another little sister coming in May.

    I was thinking the same thing... they are beautiful, Libster.

    I'll be praying for Mr. NZquilter to get a good night's sleep and to conquer that test tomorrow! Enjoy your lunch date once the pressure is off.

    my package made it to Atlanta - hopefully it will be delivered tomorrow!

    Joan, I'm doing machine embroidery. I'm finally learning how to use my Babylock Destiny after having it for near two years. I was super intimidated by it for a long time, now we are getting to be friends.

    Good luck for your DH, NZ Quilter. I remember when my husband took the test (part written and part physical) to become a certified Crane Operator. I remember what it was like when I sat for my CMA exams - that was 4 three hour exams to pass, I think I did one a year. Seems like ages ago now . ..

    I'm glad to spend my time sewing instead of studying!

    I'm making DH a cheesecake this afternoon. It's starting to smell really good. I hate having to wait for it to cool before cutting in. I'll make some cherry sauce to go with.
