    Just checking in and letting everyone know what's going on with me...
    I've been sick off and on and just haven't felt like dealing with sewing, plus I'm trying to finish up a Sun Bonnett Sue Quilt for my mom and a few other swaps, I had to go to the hospital the other night and I have Bronchitis, but feeling a little better today! I hope to finish up my moms quilt and a few other swaps and then I will start cutting the rest of my F8 and get them in the mail. I will get your blocks to you before the deadline I promise and I hope to have the rest of my F8's mailed by the end of the month...I have some of your F8's done and will be mailing them on the 15th, I'm working on them when I feel like sewing, my back is giving me a lot of pain and now I have Bronchits. Been to the hospital twice this month and to the Dr. Office twice, this month has been bad for me with the change of the weather going up and down. The weather is why I'm having issues with my back, they give me pain medicine and the darn stuff makes me sleep a lot. So I'm praying for good weather or at least stay the same...LOL

    Linda, on your pictures that you have try to upload, did you size them down first if you didn't that is the reason they won't load there too big, you might try resizing them to at least 600pixs that seems to work for me.

It may have something to do with the fact that I use my phone for internet service and I am out in the boonies in ND since June. I thought I would be back in Texas this month, but because I am having some major health issues, I have to stay here till my doctors say it is OK to head home.

    My fabric is from Robert Kaufman :-)

    You can use another fabric as long as you use both of mine along with it.

    That quilt finished is so pretty! I thnk that is the inspiration everyone needs to see what can be.. and how it is all going together. Thank you for sharing that with us. So if I take like a year to finish mine no quilt police will come and get me right? otherwise I am hiding and not saying where I went.

    Linda58 I live in the boonies too sucky reception on a really good day. We have internet or we dont. Aol the original is way better than us on a good day. Way it is. No phones work up here cell wise. Even ATT let us out of our contract with them as well there is no cell service and towers are apparently too expensive. So verizon we cant hear you now either. Its funny to watch out of towners when they first come up here.. like WHAT? NO INTERNET? no CELL SERVICE? you would think we put them on the moon. Nope but if you take your golf cart up to that ridge and hold your arm way out to the left and there are no clouds you might pick up one bar.. and that is not an exageration. But Linda you didnt say do you prefer just those two fabrics or others like it can be mixed in too? I have the ivory flourish with snowflakes in those same tones only the cream is lighter than the background ofyour ornaments but I think they work.. your call. thanks!

    So sorry Marybeth about your friend, I know it don't help because I lost my sister in 2009 to car accident. And you just miss them to much! But it does get a little easier. You are such a sweetheart and prayers go out to you someone mention to finish it and give it to the children in her class. That sounds awesome but then I think what will happen to it when the children move on to the next grade. You will figure it out in time you, you just need some time to grieve.

    Linda 58......whoops I think that I made a mistake on your blocks. I made two blocks using each material as a separate block and not both in the block. Is that what you intended for us to do.....to use both material on one block???? I have already mailed mine to you so I hope they are ok???

    Lv2sew I hope you are feeling better. I know how it is when YOu have your back hurting and then trying to sew. Not going to happen at my house. I have been knitting some pumpkin and witches hats for our library to sell. The money goes to the Children's library. I gave them 7 hats last Tuesday and they were all sold by Thursday. So I have been trying to whip up some more plus work on my DQ. So right now I am glad to have the lull between sewing for the boom as I am done with everyone except for two and I can wait. No hurry on my part. Just get feeling better.

    I have been in Grandma Mode all day today. I am making my Princess a costume fitting for a Princess.
    The picture does not do the dress justice, It is so darn cute. 4 layers of Tulle, a sparkly one on top then a lavender one and two layers of white plus the under skirt in lavender. My fingers hurt from all the sewing with the tulle.

    But she will be the cutest little princess.

    Friday! I will be in Washington to give her big hugs and kisses! I am counting the days!

    Love2sew, so sorry you are feeling bad, watch that bronchitis it can turn into pneumonia quick if your not careful.

    I have sent out all blocks except I have not got to yours yet Love2sew. I will try to get it done before I leave but if I don't you can pretty sure expect not to get it until November after the Marathon. It seems like after Friday I won't even have a minute to breathe. But I promise I won't forget it.

    I will be gone for the rest of the month (after Friday) so if you send a block I will get the information from My MIL, she will keep any eye on the house and Cats and the mail. Faith, my helper who lives with her sends me emails daily to tell me what I get in the mail! I think she loves the squishies as much as I do.

    OK back to the sewing machine, I am making Charleigh clothes for her birthday, she loves them and they hardly cost me a thing I have so much fabric stocked up!


    Marybeth

    ps, someone asked about making a donation to my run, I will post a link in the next few days. I don't worry about collecting money usually because we have so many family members that donate I get what my goal is.

    For this run we are having a competition the Republicans against the democrats, I told them who ever donated the most would be the winner! Hehe my family is so funny, they are really trying to out do each other!

    Well, I wasn't able to work on my moms quilt today, some how it shifted and now I have to remove about 12 quilted rows and I just didn't feel like messing with Mr. Seam ripper today..., so I was able to finish up some blocks to send back home and finish cutting all my F8's now just got to mail them. But I don't want to get out into the weather it's like 30+ right now, until I get over my Bronchitis. Plus I don't want to give the crap to any one else....
    And thanks everyone for the well wishes.

    Marybeth I'm not even worried about it, everyone else goes the same to you! You get them done when you can get them done!!! LOL

    Linda, on the front page of this board there is a category, HElp. hit that word. it will offer you several options. in the right hand column go to ' resizing photos.It tells you how to resize pictures. Follow the steps, be sure to save the changes by going to FILE (upper left corner of screen) then come to the thread and write a message, hit go advanced, then manage (something),and a window will open with a category BROWSE; hit browse. Open the picture, close that window. and it takes you back to the 'browse' window. that space is now filled with letters and numbers , hit upload. If it takes longer than 10 seconds it probably didn't resize. I often forget to go to the file category to save it. Once you get the hang of it, it's not difficult. You just need to do the steps in order. computers are very specific when it comes to the order in which things must be done, and they don't let you skip steps. i have windows 7 and that means i can use a pictures manager. i had to write all the steps down and then, after awhile it was easier to remember the order; good luck. once you get it you'll be surprised how easy it is. till then it just seems like a lot of bother! 8-)

    Finally ladies, I got to get to that box of fabrics and blocks. I have not checked out if I have all f8ths, I have some cut up, some with fabric ready to cut and others in envelopes. Will get that total when I start the blocks. But, I do have the list of grown-up blocks:
    Received grown-up blocks from:
    Mayrbeth
    Chewboo
    annaquilts
    tam moo
    Urgodschild2
    1000projects
    marcialee
    abbysmome
    girlscouts1
    rosesue
    moonrise
    mammahouser
    marian
    joan-MO
    charlotte
    Jaba
    LJDugas

    I have opened all the envelopes and these are what I received and love them. If I had time, would put them together into a quilt right now and then the rest would go into another quilt. Not sure though. Since no time, get to wait for the rest and look at it in January when life calms down a bit. Still working with family issue, getting better but realizing I do not like to deal with emotional stuff and I am having to deal with it. Yuk. Well, have bank statements to balance, taxes to pay, payables to pay, and then do a product return. Will proabaly not be able to visit much so I can be sure and get in that sewing time on blocks. Also need to write a presentation for the quilt show which is next week along with finishing one wall hanging challenge that is due by Friday. yep, pushing it again.

    elisabrat- don't know if anyone answered your question, but in april's booms you can choose any fabric you want to send out. people have done all sorts of themes! some swaps are very specific, but not this one. this is the first time i haven't sent out green, and that's not even my favorite color. lol ! i think the next one i will send out batiks. wish i could send out parts of blocks i've already cut and have them put together for me. we could all swap wip's.hmm.......
    The only bad days are the ones you don't get.
