    Received f8s from missgiggliwigs, ljdugas, and TwinriversFarm. Already went stash shopping so have the fabrics ready to cut up in am and get blocks made. Forgot rotary cutter at office so can't do at home. Oops, my bad. See, there is a birthday present they family should get me.

    Now if you are wondering, Fiberworks in Billings, MOntana is having their sale fabric at $3 per yard. All who can, go shop Billings, Montana Fiberworks, Laura Heine, and get a great buy on fabric. All day Saturday is their sale on different things.

    I am still under the covers with the CRUD... I hate summer sickness... I got lots of Squishes in the mail today. I have not opened the envelopes yet, will tomorrow... EXCEPT Chocolate~ Thank you soooooo much Elisabrat! I love Baby Ruth... Hubby looked at me and started to say something about no chocolate while training as he walked away. Smart man, don't stand between me and my chocolate when I feel cruddy!

    I am giving this stuff 3 days, then I am done with it! (I am just hoping it is done with me too) Linda, I am going to call you later this evening. I am really looking forward to meeting you when I see you in Fresno in November ...

    OK back to bed!

    I haven't been to Billings since the day we arrived in Great Falls, but I have to go in October for my son's pediatric opthamologist appointment. I'm planning to spend the night, eat at Olive Garden, and hit some of the stores before we come home the next night. I have learned the hard way that, in Montana, it's easier to spend the night if the trip is longer than 3 hours. And if it involves a pass (i.e., over the mountains) just plan to spend the night period. Those drives are so stressful to me. I have a great story for why:

    Last October, I drove to Missoula via Rogers Pass. On that trip, I encountered brown bears on the side of the road, deer (with huge horns) in the middle of the road, and then big horn sheep in the middle of the road. And then I drove 30 miles through a cloud. I thought I was going to have a stroke - that is more wildlife in one day than I've encountered in my entire LIFE. And then the driving through the cloud was on the edge of a rather steep drop-off into a national forest. All I could envision was me sneezing and ending up in the ravine being eaten to death by bears. AND THEN I HAD TO DRIVE BACK! I had a stress migraine for 3 days after that.

    I have a great many ways I don't want to die and 9 of the top 10 end with "in my car." As in, "drowning in my car" or "being skewered by deer antlers in my car." You know, traumatic or involving being conscious as it happens.
    Mischief Managed.

    Elisabrat you are too funny, I'm retired remember, I better keep this house clean! Actually hubby wouldn't say a word, honest, it's me. I'm a little picky over that stuff, ask my kids they'll tell you and I've even mellowed some. Just a me thing. m QMamma thanks alot, kids will be here Saturday, no way, or I would for sure.

    Most definitely jaba. I'm originally from Idaho. We usually always bring GOOD potatoes back to Texas when we visit up there. Very fun at security when they check through a 50lb box of potatoes!!! HAHA..... I literally drooled when I saw your delicious potato!

    I'm just so jealous/impressed of how well you're interpreting these fabrics. Your blocks are so pretty.

    Oh wow ... thanks! I appreciate that. I always worry that I'll make a block that's totally the opposite of what the sender had in mind, and that it'll stick out like a sore thumb in their quilt.

    Nancia, don't worry about it, you have the rest of the year! I am working on a few blocks and need clarification, so sending some PM's.

    I have been sick in bed for 3 days, now I want to get up and do something... maybe I better not play with fabric, my head is spinning~ Time to quit whining! maybe I will go watch a movie.
    Give a smile away today, someone you meet might need one!

    Please don't feel bad I have gotten five fabrics and all I have done is open them and number them. I made myself my sample block just for the practice. We shall see if I can get to one tomorrow. Nancia so please don't feel behind.

    I haven't started on mine yet either I've got other swaps to catch up on first then I will tackle these F8.

    We have 4 months to do them and I'm trying to get everything else out of the way first. I still haven't even finish cutting my F8 But I have a few to send out. But I've got to purchase some stamps I've been having lower back issues and been to the Dr. and just haven't felt like doing much.
