    Hello my fellow boomers. I have dearly missed being able to be on board everyday Oh darn my keyboard is totally dusty. Ok that is better.....just wiped it off. Not being used for the last 3 weeks does tend to collect dust. I have so much to do today like go get groceries but first things first. JUst have too look at the squishies I got. I am so excited. I got several grown up blocks and I will post a picture later after grocery shopping. Prioritizing here. But I wanted the peole who sent me grown up squares that I got them. Oh my gosh, I love every one of them. I had sent out different material besides the kabukha dolls so I do have an eccletic selection. These was a method to my madness. Anyways...Thank you to the following. 2 Vanderkuy Kabukha dolls Marcialee Civil War Jaba kabukha dolls or chicken (whoops got yours mixed in with TwinRivers) moonrise civilwar Anna Quilts Kabukha dolls Roseysue - civilwar Joan Baysinger = Kabukha dolls Judy Bowers - Kabukha dolls Charlotte - Kabukha dolls LJ dugas 31 Kabukha dolls Maryliztodd - kabukha dolls TwinRiversFarm - Chicken or Kabukha dolls ( whoops I mixed you and Jaba up) I have 8 of my 20 Kabukha dolls sent back all grown up. They are awesome together. Thank you all so much. The rest are going in some other quilts I am doing. Gosh I missed being on here everyday. My friends computer is really slow and so I didn't like using it very much. Now on to the swuishies I received that need to grow up. 1000 projects nancia lovingizabella (side swap) Pinklotus Daisey and Marcialee On the side swap folks. I did pm all of you that I saw requests for but I will confess that I have never done side swaps before so I was confused about how to do it. I thought that i was just agreeing to do an extra square for someone out of the kindness of my heart and didn't realize that they expect a square to make from me. So I still want to make your square......you will just not have to make me one. I hope that is ok with those who I agreed to side swap with. I haven't even up packed yet and my son is telling me to let's go shopping. So later everyone.

    Cool

    quoate-anna, your fabric is so crisp and fresh feeling..not sure what you did but I LOVE it..quote


    joanelizbay I lay it on the ironning board, spray it with starch and let it dry. Then I iron it and proceed to cut and sew. I feel it helps me in acuracy.

    Enjoy the tea dye fabric. Besure to post your Civil War quilt creations. It is nice to share a comon interest and love.

    Your DIL's quilt is stunning and a labor of love. I trust she enjoys it.

    Anna, she only saw it before it was quilted in May and hasnt seen it since its finished. I know she will love it. I gave them one for Christmas a year ago in black/red/beigh and she wanted a lighter color one for summer/spring....ooops I missed that by a couple months! LOL. She wants my one with the Civil War panels but its MINE...however I did buy 4 more North and South panels just in case I get the urge to make her one! LOL. Let me know if there is a Civil War Block Swap anywhere that you hear of! I might try that starching trick..it sure makes for good feeling fabric!

    A side swap is where someone posts that they are willing to swap on the side with others. I believe that is what it is.

    yup, that's it. I wanted more blocks so I posted in all the boom 8 threads if anyone wanted to do an extra block swap w/ me and I'm exchanging F8s with some of the ladies in the other groups.

    OK, Sheri, I want to know what is a Boom Block block? I am so bad... but having so much fun being bad! I am deep into Halloween costumes and Size 4T clothing!

    Incase I have not bragged enough! I am going to Washington in TWO WEEKS~ to see my wonderful Granddaughter turn 3! and before I get there I have to finish a Princess costume and A Dragon costume. She wants to be a dragon and a princess! I am not sure which costume is for Trick or Treating and which is for her Birthday Party, but Nanna is going to have them both ready! Plus I have been making lots of cute clothes for her for Pre School. I guess she is growing full throttle, wearing a Size 4t.

    And ideas for dragon costumes?

    I am going to update my spread sheet right now! I got a cute grown up block from Anna, I love it and it is perfect with my Christmas blocks!

    I will send a list updating who I got blocks from, but I do have all my F8's and I do have a few more blocks to make.

    Tomorrow is my 20 mile run, then I get to do the super long ones only every other week. That is a good thing! 5 weeks until my Marathon~
    Give a smile away today, someone you meet might need one!

    I have finished blocks and sent home to everyon except; areinn, marcialee, 1000projects, Lv2sew2011, plus a side swap from Abby's Mom. I will get them done before I head to Washington. I would say this weekend, but I have said that a lot and it still isn't done!

    I have received blocks from; moonrise, Elisabrat(2), CharlotteMarie, Roseysue, ljdugas31, TwinRiverFarm, jaba, TheMamaHauser, sustraley, SheriR, Fraew, joanelizbay, urgodschild2, scrapper, Chewboo, NanaKathy55, girlscouts1, Abby's Mom, AnnaQuilts. If you sent me a block and your name is not here Please let me know!

    I am not sure at this point in the game if it is easier to list the ones I have got or have not got... pretty close to even~ As soon as I have more than I don't I will do it the other way! And if you totally understand this reading it only one time, you get the prize of the week!

    oh oh oh Marybeth check out pottery barn kids catalogue think you can go online for that (great ideas in there btw for holiday stuff).. and they have this dragon costume sorta the one for Where the Wild Things are book by Maurece spell check Sendik.. the Max costume where he is a white dragon very very cute.. I would start with a pair of footed jammies myself and add the tail and spikes down the back.. a sweatshirt underneath with a hoodie that you can add spikes to and you have a warm trick or treater and they will be happy campers. tail comes off a sleepy she can use again and hey a pink dragon how cute with silver spikes.. ok ok keep me away from costumes. My little girl had them all. her brothers too but those girly ones oh so much more fun to make.

    those blocks are gorgeous. I post as they come in, not keeping track of who owes me a block or fabric any longer. I think if they have not sent me fabric by now its not coming. And if someone is missing a block from me come November hollar as I will be done by then with sending them out. I photo each in and each out. Best I can do and ok when everyone posts besides pics mind you got these forty five do you read it? I always think a PM works nicely if there is a question. Rotten of me I know. I like the pics, such a kid at heart. Sheri your nesting dolls are on their way home loved the fabric. Today the lucky block of the day is for Roseysue. No note on what to do so off to check it out right now. Pretty floral going to see what ya 'all have whipped up for her.
    Linda
    Here today... why what a lucky bunch we are.

    well since they are not due for along time I would just wait and up date once in awhile..we have a long time to go before they are due and I havent even started and dont plan to until after Halloween probably. So its probably up to you but in my opinion until closer to the end Ide wait to post who you dont have blocks from ...right now I am just post who I recieve rather than who I havent. In other words the ones done are the exception to the rule for me ...Its sure nice to get them but since we have so much time now I dont worry.
    I have recieved every block eventually from both booms ive done. So patience is a virtue...LOL

    Yes, I had a lot that swapped with me in Boom 6 because I missed the sign up deadline. It was so nice of everyone to do that. I'm glad this one made it, just fell in love with that fabric when I saw it and the blocks that are coming back in are beautiful

    I received a beautiful block from urgodschild2 today, thank you!
