    I just have to say that I am scared to cut your fabrics and to screw up and not make your blocks the right size. Sorry my anxiety is getting the better of me today

    OMG! I was the same way when I started. Almost hyperventilated Then as time goes on, you are so excited about making a block with all the different fabrics. I try to make their fabric the focus in the block but yet still have some left over to make another block with a smaller amount of the fabric in case I screw it up! LOL

    Here I am ladies, I am all teary eyed at the wonderful birthday wishes. Makes me feel special. I know go get your memopause herb so I quit, but was so touched. My own friends from my quilt group didn't remember so was feeling a little sorry for self. thank you so much. The people on facebook have said HB so makes up a bit for it.

    I have been mia because I finally finished a top that I started 11 years ago today. I figured since the boss did not remember my Bday, then he would not mind I took a little extra lunch and started late this am, he's not here so executive decision on my part, and I feel so relieved. I have been trying to do this bugger all year long. It only had 574 2.5" squares to sew along with 3.5" squares to 6.5" squares and is a queen. yep, a whole lot of little squares. Be different if sampler but a whole pattern of faux drunkard path and I can say I know why it took me so long to want to do but fell in love with it once I got the blocks to the 6.5" stage and was able to sew the top. You want to see you have to go to the UFO challenge thread. Posting there.

    Don't know if any new f8 but I did cut up the next three blocks, will get them sewn tonight or in am. Have a good night ladies, I will be in garage quilting away on that round robin that needs done for show.
    Life is short, live it while you still can. QuilterMomma

    FYI if your block is off this quilt police snub your noser wont care so take me off that list.. I will just off set stuff it wont matter to me.. in fact easier then I dont have to make sashing on target either.. hey an idea! especially since its well BUGS.
    Beautiful block Marybeth.
    Quiltermomma la la la la la.. hurummm.. ok hippo birdy to you, hippo birdy to you.. hippo birdy.. ok peanut gallery join in.. HIPPO BIRDY Ms Quilter America, hippo.. ok ok I will stop singing. If anyone here had ever heard me sing they would appreciate my stopping. Hey did you get anything in the mail today said the oh just wondering of wonderers..

    I did.. drum roll please: I have in total from this group and I swear will not do the drill count again but only newbies unless I forget in which case you get the whole darned list:
    charlottemarie, x two as we are both rubies and diamonds,
    fraew: black,red etc.. got it thank you so much
    abbysmom got that I think yesterday but then again could be today ARGH
    jaba: the fruit one and the non fruit one (hey they are in the other room safely where I WONT lose them)
    ldugas black multi colors
    marytoddliz received butchered and returned
    miss gigglewings - black bright colors
    moonrise received returned! birds
    themamahouser pink batik received
    twinriverfarm speedy gonzales purple black received
    yosemitesa cat in the hat received returned

    so 10 in for this group, 3 out... yipes (and so many more something says avalanch do you know avalanch? thankfully no mail here on Saturday I can sorta feel like I am catching up with me, my own race at this point..

    again if you begin to think I should have gotten yours ask me, I am writing on the sheet as they come in what fabric was received. Hubby printed form out at 68 percent even 300 readers cant read it so if I butchered your name.. shoot him not me. And second I am marking them before they hit the box and marking a number after its marked off and in that box so i can try hard at keeping track. Now getting them all on here.. well ask me.. that I can see messing up on easily. And I will keep trying my best. Too bad you cant charge memories heck I would apply for a card today. Went to the market oh so tired this afternoon, 9 items on list.. checked it every single isle, in line got in car drove home.. crud how did I miss shampoo .. I stood at that isle list in hand (that huge list) read it said nope nothing here , my list mind you is isle written so I dont mess up. HAH. I was not feeling as proud as I did when I left the market that is damned sure.. oops sorry. lucky for me I was tired would have kicked something otherwise then my luck broke something andnot the couch either..

    see ya later, dumb to go cut. FYI I can kill a small piece of fabric three times faster than if I have yards.. like knowing its there .. less stress one cut maybe two.. tiny piece guaranteed I will end up with nada when done and a reworked game plan probably more than once. ARgh pirates!
    Linda
    Here today... why what a lucky bunch we are.

    Wow I haven't checked in in two days and the posts are like wild fires. LOL. Happy birthday Mommyquilter. Hope ithas been a happy day I got several squishies today. I went to the post office to mail 16 of mine. I ran out of envelops and so now I will go to the store on Sat and get some more. SIGH. When I came back from the PO the mailbox was empty so I thought he was just late as usual. But on my computer desk there was a stack. Of course a health bill tried to sneek in as a squishy but I tossed it real quick.

    I got the following

    elizabrat --guess what I got a 10 " square from someone that has beehives on it and it will match your fabric.
    Twin River Farm-----I am in love with the lady bugs
    Moonrise
    missgigglwings
    MamaHauser
    Fraew
    OK darla
    Jaba
    ljdugas31

    Now those of you who are fretting because there are some people who are quick on the draw. Don't worry I'll be still working on mine in October. LOL. I am taking the ones that I get before Sept. 4 to New Hampshire will I will be spending several weeks with my best friend. I am taking material with me so I can sew there. Yep she has 3 sewing machines and a fantastic sewing room. If I run out or change my mind on the fabric choice, I am sure my friend will advise me on what to do and how to do it. I am so excited. Have to f inish up on some squares for two swaps before I leave, so I will enjoy seeing what everyone else does as they post here on line. I love this swap already.
    Dreaming of New England while being stuck in So. Calif.(the asphalt jungle of the world.) But hey the Happiest Place on Earth is here.
