    Vikkim I love your fabric choices for the beautiful blocks you made. Terri it’s amazing how that orange and purple combination is working out. Lucky Pamela to have you for a mom!

    Anyone into Essential oils or homeopathic cures? I know Janice also uses the essential oils. Trying to hurry this very slow healing infection and cellulitis along. Besides the creams and antibiotics from doctor trying coconut oil with lavender on the cellulitis, then you take cabbage leaves and gently bruise them and wrap around cellulitis( which is on left breast ). Next you mix crushed garlic, honey and cayenne pepper together and no you don’t add to the cabbage leaves but you take one tsp every hour for 8 hours. Haven’t tried this part yet but bought all the ingredients. I firmly believe in the oils but the other two hints are something new to me and at this point I am willing to try most anything.

    Boom Biz - color requests

    Thank you, mjpEncinitas, for a well-timed reminder about requests. (Please email me when there is an issue and I can try to handle it privately.) That being said, I've discovered a number of blocks in the Gallery that while lovely, do not conform to the fabric requests. While some may be design choices, I suspect they were simple misunderstandings. You see colors in the F8 and either do not read the requests or misinterpret them. I discovered this with Kassaundra's blocks when I began hers earlier this week. If you haven't yet made a block for Kassaundra, please be careful. She's asking for her fabric, white and/or grey, and one feather color. If you've made a block already and you've followed those colors, or if you've contacted her directly and rec'd her go ahead, you are golden. If not, you may consider changing it. It is up to you.

    Please read and reread the color requests. It's important if you wish your blocks to be used. If there is anyone who has an issue with the blocks they've seen, please let me know privately. You cannot count on me to discover it as I did with Kassaundra's. Once blocks are mailed to me, there is nothing I can do. And, I can only request that blocks be altered. I cannot make someone do something they do not wish to do, as it is ultimately their choice.

    For those of you who used Blue No worries, I love the blocks you made. It’ll never be noticed on a galloping horse and that’s the only kind I ride.

    Janice thanks for the reminder, I thought I read Kassís as no white. I did make hers after MJPís, was probably thinking of her request. A good reminder for me to double check my colors before cutting. Will be changing my corner triangles to white.

    I've never tried the oils, etc. Terriamn, but am very willing if you or Janice have a suggestion for me. I did notice some of the colors choices but have already sent mine in and had to hope I didn't read the requests wrong. I read them the minute I open the baggies, read them again, pick fabric and read them again. It makes it so much easier to me and I figure for every Boom I may have to buy fabric for someone's block. Usually, to be honest, what I do is buy a set or 2 of FQ's from Connecting Threads in solids and blenders and those colors usually work. It just works for me and I always have extra for a wall hanging or mug rug, for a swap or for me. The only thing I have really noticed for this Boom is that there is a wide variety on the size of the F8, I got from a size of 11 x 21 to 13 x 17. Not a gripe, just stating a fact!
    Hubby and son went to the hockey game in Tampa the other night and a day later Bill got a cold! He just had to share it with me so that's what I've had for the last 3 days. Finished all the Boom blocks so went through all the fabric and fat quarters, refolded all of it, sorted by color. Then I decided to take down the long arm table and make it smaller so I could rearrange the sewing room. 2 days later and I'm done, should have had my head examined but glad my main machine is back in front of a window. With these old eyes it's much easier to see.

    Jaba, same thing for you if you are interested in some info on EOís. Iíll send you an email. But you must take the info with a grain (tablespoon) of salt and a lot of common sense.

    Thank you for letting me know about the F8s. I pulled one or two from each package. I only found one that was undersized at a hair under 10Ē by 17Ē. I kept that one myself. It really is important folks to make the absolute minimum with no selvages 10 x 18, and not a smidge smaller. Thanks, Jaba.

    Jaba I have found a few sites I really like for Essential oils and have done a lot of trial and error. Several that are essential in my box of oils are Tea Tree, Lavender and Thieves. But like Janice said you have to take everything with a grain of salt and remember to use them.

    vikkim, a couple more great blocks,

    Well, I'm one who overlooked the no blue request for MJPEncinitas. I pm'd her and she graciously told me to send what I had made without changing it. I've already remade her block using the exact purple that's in her focus fabric. My camera makes it look dark blue, but I promise it's purple.
    Janice, would you please remove the other picture for MJP and replace it with this one? Sorry for causing you extra work.
    MJP, I hope this one is more like what you requested. And thank you for your kind offer, but I want it to be something you can use. Now, if I could just learn to take a straight picture! LOL

    mjp, I am fine with applique and embroidery. I just love to see all the creativity.

    I am one of those who misunderstood the color request for Kass's Block, Sorry. I do have some fabric left over and will make a second block in her color request. I promise to pay closer attention with the rest of the little notes sent with the fabrics. No worries, Thank you all for keeping us on track. And thank you Janice for being a great host.

    The gray does match the gray in the flowers, the pictures display the colors as being darker.

    Thank you Libster. That was above and beyond. It’ll make it much easier for me to put the blocks together in the setting I’ve envisioned. I posted only to keep others from making the same mistake.

    I cant take straight pictures either.
