    Did you know it takes 10,000 repetitions to become a master at anything? Give yourself a break. I don't think anyone in our group would declare themselves perfect... I have yet to make a perfect anything (unless we're talking perfect mess. I can do that without practice).

    Wrong message in several envelopes

    Sorry you guys, I guess I put the wrong message in everyones envelope. What I have is a green, purple, and blue fabric to match a multicolored frog fabric. I was supposed to have put a square of the frog in everyones envelope that didn't get the frog fabric. So that is what happened. I have been trying to put a picture of the frog fabric up but I can't and I don't know why.

    Well, I'll be Darned! I got it on there. Yeah! This is my focus fabric and I sent out green, blue and purple fabrics as well as the frog fabric. I ran out of froggie fabric but all of my blocks are going to be to match this focus fabric. Those colors match it perfectly.

    I hope this makes sense.

    After I sent you a PM kept reading your note. I did get the frog and the green. On your note you said diamond group frog and then off to the side all you wrote was ruby - green. Anyway I thought you had 2 separate ideas going and that's why I asked what you were doing with the green. I think I got it now, same quilt just different "side" fabs to incorporate with the frogs. Hope this is right, cause you're getting back 2 blocks, both with the frogs, and the other with your green added.

    Now I've got it. Jaba we are both in two groups, diamond and ruby together. I put all my groups that had more than one swap in one envelope. You are in ruby's and diamonds, right? That explains it all. I should have told you it was for both groups. There were others as well, Okdarla was one , Elisabrat was one, Girlscouts1, Savannahrandons, and Abby'smom. I put the fabric for both groups in the one envelope. I will sleep better now that I figured it out.

    Fellow Swappers; I am so excited about all of hte beautiful fabrics that I have received. My envelopes will be going out on Tuesday. I am attaching a photo for the first batch of blocks that I was able to complete this weekend. I decided to make the blocks in the same order that I received the envelopes in. I do work many hours during the week but I promise each of you that I will think about your F8 as I open the envelope and pick a block that I hope suits your theme or choice or fabric. Thanks for swapping with me. I cannot wait to see what you create!Name:  Boomer 8 Quilt Block Swap 005.JPG

    Charlotte! I love your fabric. Last fall I bought some of that line thinking it was the happiest fabric!

    I'm excited to make your block.

    Tam..moo what a beautiful bunch of blocks! Your right chewboo there are some great creations coming out. Again, to repeat myself, its neat one fabric 35 interpretations .. funny how we all see the same thing with different eyes

    and not perfect? who here is not perfect? I thought I was signing up for the only perfect people can join club. Robbed! I have been robbed! fine then I will have to send out my oh so way less than perfect blocks so you dont feel bad any of you that is how kind I am. ONLY 10,000 til your perfect? ok your all getting the same block from here to eternity as I think it might take eternity to finish 10000 blocks. I was shooting for fifty this round that leaves lets see.. ah heck math again? a few more thats all a few more to go. How about a 12.5 piece of fabric block? I can do that but still will be too old by the time I am done. thinkmy goal is to be happy with what I make.. maybe you will be happy too

    TURNIP CHIPs? lmao.. ah hell no. I had kale chips before not bad but how to make something look pretty much hideous, make kale chips. Taste good but look like crumbled up seaweed. Attractive. Man at the store says hey you have to try these I made some for you they are soo good. I say ok then he brings this tupperware container from the back opens it, blackened things in it. I say oh um.. what is it? Kale chips!! I say oh my. I take a tiny sample. He is lookiing at me like well well?? and I say oh wow these are very good (not sure that is what my mouth was thinking) and he whips out a zip bag and says here I want you to take a bag home it will be real good for you. I say ok wonderful how fast can I run.. lucky for me I cant eat dark green veggies right now or he would have made me buy a bunch of it. I like veggies but if these went on looks they were well.. not winning any pagents. Those can go next to your turnip chips. yikes.

    happy quilting my fellow gems. Off to work on the french general block of the day. Tada! oh oh had trouble with kellys block today. Machine does not want to work bobbin thread on it. Other fabrics grand go back to this stuff and it does like five stitches and then a long unfinished strand, five stitches etc. Try other cotton, works fine again.. new titanium needle any suggestions? I get my new machine next week so itmay have to wait sorry girly unless you have an idea for me to try. Never had this issue before.

    Here today... why what a lucky bunch we are.

    elizabrat-- have you dusted your bobbin case lately? that's always my first place to check, and easiest to do.
    wow-- there is so much going on in this thread and i feel like alice in wonderland-- not really sure i'm in the right place, but the language sounds familiar. 8-). i'm hoping dh will have the time/opportunity to run off my address labels. i'm not sending directions, but the 2 connecting threads lines of fabric are 1) purrfect pets and 2) parlor pets. the colors are mauve, beige, tan, white, espresso, black and gray. uncharacteristically, no brights. i hope you will enjoy playing with the fabric! i sent out 3 prints. looking forward to getting to know those of you i have not swapped with before! diamonds are a girl's best friends!

    I just got back from the PO, and I mailed out 17 of my F8th's for this group. I need to go get more of the fabric I am using from the store, and then I will get more out.

    Please make sure you added me to your list, as I was an add-on. Thanks!

    Wow, I missed a lot here, check out for a weekend to get things done and you miss all the action. Great news though, finished the customer quilt that had to be redone Yeah!, and I finished Shekenah's Round Robin finally, all quilted and the binding going on today so can put in show Wednesday. Wanted to ge three done this weekend but kenah's took forever it seemed, well worth it. The movie Expendables 2 was fabulous. Loved all the fun puns they had so worth going with DH. Went off diet to have popcorn at movie and Dh made me lasagna for dinner yesterday. I had only one piece which is very hard but want to stay on track. Received five more f8ths, did not even look at them yet, still in envelopes all closed up. And no, did not match up the ones I received on Thursday pm. Sorry, will get on it tonight and shop fo r fabrics in

    Oh, by the way, received my bribe chocolate and poodle puppies in mail so that person's block is getting done before anyone elses since she went thru all the "extra" effort to be sure I got chocolate with caramel and my puppy. Sorry ladies, puppies and chocolate talk all the way across the country.

    Also, QuilterMomma, your block will be going out in the mail tomorrow. There's a picture from the link in my signature line.

    Thought I saw that you got my f8. I look forward to seeing it especially after you required consultation. (LOL)
