    Jaba, I can't wait for you to get the block I sent you! I am keeping my fingers crossed that you like it!
    Elisabrat, hey girl I have a new something heading your way... I am sure it is going to really "Bug you" hehe

    I received a squishy from Daisy, beautiful fabric, have I seen this fabric before??? might just be similar to a previous boom!

    We ran in the heat today, the mornings are nice and cool but I am not awake enough, so I am suffering with hot afternoons instead. Tomorrow morning I am going to go and run bright and early... That is my story and I am sticking to it! Hubby goes with me, he picks up trash and recycling, I told him the county should hire him he cleans the park almost every day!

    Going to go and work on the last two blocks to go out... Everyone that sent me fabric should have a block heading there way except Daisy and Tam Moo. I am going to post update in Pearls group also. I think I have one F8 still in my hand that needs some love and attention, Cuppy. I will get these three done and then wait for the rest of the F8's to come to me~


    OH my I got the Fabulous thread I ordered today from UPS... I just love the cool new colors I got! time to go play with my embroidery machine.

    Judy, I have another block headed your way, one of your fabrics got caught in the machine at the PO. It was pretty mangled, but the fabric was fine. I will be sending it in the morning. It is an autumn leaf print. I love the block I made for you. I am having camera issues again so please send a picture when you get the block.

    I got a Digital camera for my 50th birthday and it is on it's last leg... I suppose I should not complain it has lasted 6 1/2 years! remember the good old days when you bought something and it lasted a really long time! I miss that!

    But if technology never died, the corporations would never make money. The average PC is meant to only survive about 5 years before it becomes fully obsolete - I have a professor who swears that the computer designers intentionally manufacture things in such a way that they can guarantee a replacement within 3 years. And with the way technology keeps improving upon itself (and getting cheaper in terms of what you get for what you pay compared to what you got for what you paid 5 years ago) then it is ridiculous NOT to purchase new each time.

    Marybeth you mean as in done except for wht is outstanding in arriving? that kind of done?? flopping on floor, heart failure, your teasing right? I sure hope so, hanging head now (no it is isnt a good look on me sorry)..I almost got one done today sheesh. I had so much to do company coming, someone quit so its rescue time for phones and gate entry and then of course that kitty that followed me home. He is going to be tough to photograph being so dark here is one you can see he is NOT settling in at all. Poor guy must be traumatized. uh huh.. he doesnt even notice we hve other cats they are less thrilled he could care less no names he is a smoke black kitty half his fur is silver underside and if you brush his hair back the wrong direction its all silver.. it turns more silver as they grow older. Since he is indoor he will stay that darker black not turn the cherry black that outside ones do.. i already love him. He is giving out kisses like there is no tomorrow. I can take that

    Hi Ladies,

    I feel awful I haven't touched a block in a week and probably won't until midway next week. I am trying to get a baby blanket done. Please forgive me.

    I got a squishy from Daisey today and got an adult block from Goldendog55.

    daisey's F8 arrived today.

    And 2 more blocks! Woo hoo! AnnaQuilts (1) selected a yummy red and white print that she is going to have to PM me the details for. I definately need more of that! Thank you.

    joanelizbay made a block for marytoddliz...that I watched and drooled over. And then I drooled and watched over. I desperately wanted to ask her to make the block for me...but I followed the rules and didn't say a word. GUESS WHAT CAME IN THE MAIL TODAY? Go on, guess. She made the "rock star" version of the block for me! Yes she did. And guess what...I love it! Thank you for reading my mind joanelizbay! Big toothy smiley face.

    Linda, that cat is the top! I love it~ is it male? My Bella Cat is regal like that. Fraew, I love your blocks you are going to have an awesome quilt. I love black and white and Red, but when you add that touch of grey it really zings.

    Kelly I totally agree with you, technology has to continue to improve because we continue to expand, I just remember when things used to last for ever! And I agree getting a new computer every few years is a given, just like a phone and... well most things, but being on limited funds, and with the memory from days gone by it just some how doesn't quite balance any more. It is the part of getting older that is harder to balance in my head each year. But honestly I get excited for the kids growing up today they have endless amounts of possibilities ahead of them. Things that only happened on Star Trek when I was a kid. I think of how it was for women of the historical past, sewing everything by hand! I imagine there were those who did not want that new fangled thing in their house (sewing machine) Yes a lot has changed and it is getting better if you look just at the technology in the sewing industry.

    I do believe the glass is half full and filling up, so I am glad you called me on whining about my old camera! Heck the one I had before it I had to spend a lot of money for film... Most young kids would say, "what is film!"

    And Linda, I have only finished the ones that I have received ... and only then because I am OCD, I can't let it sit, it has to get done! I am amazed at your growing pile of blocks with all you have to deal with. I think you are doing awesome! I love that hexagon block, wow somebody has great talent! (sorry I could not remember who it was that made it, but big Kudos!)

    I just finished Cuppy's block, I think it is the other group... OK off to bed for me~

    Happy Weekend~

    i absolutely love the blocks posted.. its so darned fun. Fraew I am with you that fabric is really pretty, what a super blender that is. And Marybeth, you werent whinning stop it. You were stating a fact. Things don't last long and sometimes we do get sick of paying for something it seems we JUST BOUGHT especially if its not a high priority you had in mind. And worse yet an expensive optional item. So Kelly absoutely everything is obsolete in a very short period time that doesnt mean we have to like it I for one wish it would slow on down a bit this advancement in so many things. I can not keep up at all yipers.

    The kitten is a little boy and he has no name at all.. right now I call him baby kitty and he trots on over.. I will give it time something will come to me. He is so cute. Just ask my other three cats.. cute.. yup that is what they are thinking.. one keep looking at him like he is the next meal, one is scared to death of him and the other sniffs and zooms off.. getting there its only been half a day. kittys gosh I love kitties which mean I have to go look for nancia pet parlor fabric.. maybe I had better look at the blocks she has gotten so I know what pet parlor looks like

    Ahhhh you should have asked! I like it because it looks like its paper pieced (which I cant do) but its really an easy block to do. Glad you liked it!!
    People may not remember what you looked like or what you said but they will always remember how you made them feel!

    RANDOM QUESTION OF THE DAY: What is the new fabric style/trend in quilting for the next up coming year? what is it trending towards? curiosity makes me ask.. you know some years are all about teal and purple some are bold patterns bright colors.. so what is 2013 looking to be in the quilting world ? fashion comes out with their list does the fabric industry post something like this too? nice to keep up with the times. I am a million miles behind be cool to be cool for once

    This current year, it's Tangerine. I *think* the color people announce it late fall/early winter? I can't remember the name of the company or group that decides - I generally see it in Martha Stewart mag & Real Living mags. Also, I think I saw it on her show this year (but it got cancelled so I'm not sure they are making new ones anymore?)

    received F8 from
    sustraley
    Mosher92
    Tam...Moo

    received beautiful blocks from
    TwinRiversFarm
    moonrise

    Thank you ladies - I love them!!!!

    elisabrat, I absolutely love your new kitty. Lucky you. I have a sister and a friend who have black cats and they are called 'Lucky' -was a scrawny, skinny little thing she found under a pile of leaves in the winter; and the other is called 'Shadow' . I found out both my cats have major medical problems now and it's so sad to think of them getting so old, they are both 16, I got them from the APL when they were 4 months old. We sure have been through a lot together. I even drove to california and back twice with them - I swear it was probably more difficult traveling with them than babies with all the stuff you have to have for them but they are great travelers!

    I'm off to a tag sale. They had sewing machines and fabric listed. I hope I am not too late, been a rainy morning and getting a late, lazy start - love saturday mornings

    O Elisabrat....the kitty is so cute. We have a adult cat now who we rescued at 5 mo. old. He had a top layers of black fur and everything else is silver. I asked the vet.....what color do you call him. He said that it is a silver cat inspite of the black layer. Trust me he is a black cat except when he is outside and the winds blow and his fur turns.....sometimes it is a streak down the center and you think.....skunk. We love him dearly. Your kitty looks like he already has the I am king attitude.

    Hello from NH. I have arrived at my friends house and she loved looking at the material in my boom that I brought with me as i will be sewing your blocks here. She even helped with some with stash from her material. She's nice! I plan on sewing some tomorrow as everyone seems to want to see me as so we have had to run the circuit of visiting everyone. remember that I am not home so I do not know who has sent me F8's or even grown up blocks. I will be emailing my son soon and asking for a list . He sometimes gets all that mixed up. I don't just assume how much each envelop will cost to mail and that is why i go to the postoffice. I know that it will cost about a certain price but i want to make sure as some of you I am sending your material back. I want to make sure they get to you. So far I have not had to pay anything extra and some of these have come with just the 45 cent stamp..
