    I agree PinkLotus, you matched it perfectly. Again thank you so much. I think I'm going to have some awesome placemats ladies, and I use them everyday.

    I forgot to sing the praises of 1000projects for the great block I received last week, and today SheriR sent some ladybugs home, too! Claire had those little darlings peeking out from behind bunches of green leaves and yellow flowers, and Sheri had them swarming around delicate red flowers. Thank you both!
    May your blessings be many, your troubles few and your fabric stash endless!

    I am sending blocks home to GoldenDog55, 1000projects, and Anastasia (side swap) tomorrow morning.

    I forgot to take pictures and so I can't post peeks in my signature line like I had before; as it is, I got a nasty PM that my signature was too big and I got a little butt-hurt over that so I put something "more better" in my signature line.
    Mischief Managed.

    I'm a victim too...had links to swaps trying to drum up business. Good intentions but if there were no limit, people would have a page long sig with pics, animation and all sorts of craziness. I get it, but was disappointed....hence the revised sig.

    BTW - I miss your pic links TheMamahauser.

    First of all, that is horrible that someone sent you a nasty PM regarding your signature line. I'm so sorry you had that happen and I'm really sorry your feelings got hurt. That should NEVER be the intention here...we are a quilting family and should be nice to each other...Quilty hugs from this quilting sister!!!

    Good Morning Quilting Angels!!! Your mission today, should you chose to accept it, is to take a couple of minutes out of your day, sit and look out a window or sit outside with a piece of fabric. Look at nature and enjoy the sights all while "petting" your fabric piece. Think about how far that piece of fabric has come. It originally started out as a seed, a little piece of a heavenly miracle. Someone took the time to plant that seed in the ground and fertilize it, water it and love it so that it would grow. Because someone cared enough about nature outside, we get to make such AMAZING things with that single piece of fabric. I hope that helps each of you today and I hope it makes y'all smile.

    Sorry if I'm a little sentimental today. Just thinking a LOT about the past and the loved ones that I lost too early that never got to see the woman I am continuing to grow into and the amazing blessing I have with my son or how wonderful my husband is. I know they are looking down on me and trying to guide me, but some days I just miss them more and more. Those doess I feel a lil lonely, like my guardian angel is out taking a quilting holiday and I have to face the world however I come here and always feel safe. Y'all make me smile. Y'all make me laugh. Y'all give me inspiration, that no matter what, we HAVE to keep getting back up and fighting because we are QUILTING SISTERS!!!

    Wow love those blocks. Your birdie quilt is going to be so pretty. I cant wait to see them all together! I thought last night I was finished. It was 12:15 and I was done with all my blocks. YAHOO. Then I went to put all my stuff away. Cleaned up the sewing table for ornament making today. Turned of the machine turned off the iron. Put fabric in its proper place looked in the box I had my envelopes in and put the scrap fabric in its spot and there on the bottom of that box.. was a fabric wrapped but not in an envelope and I went.. well you know I cant post that. But it was like someone rained on my parade. ME! lol I am sewing it up today and by 10 am I will BE FINISHED. Can I do the happy dance then? oh yes yes I can.

    oh oh I am spending all day today on swap ornaments. AND I have decided to do a thankful tree for a senior home that is lower income this Christmas. I need to get it up thanksgiving week as they do a big parade through their dining hall to enjoy the trees volunteers put up. Families come to enjoy it with them and volunteer friends come its a lovely time. I need 100 hearts and stars for this tree. Anyone want to help me with this and send an ornament or five would be much appreciated. I have four done so far. lol.. whipping them right out. Its my thankful gift back. I spent two weeks in one healing this year and am so thankful I am not there. They are so lonely. I hope it brightens their days a bit.

    I know what happened and why not on board Yosa, it came in the mail to me on the 9th, Tuesday of this week and so was not on my list because I posted on Monday. and I have not taken time to update anything yet. Getting ready for an hour presentation about quilting is becoming so overwhelming. My head is spinning and the little details are running away from me.

    There is so much information out there and that I have on hand, that I am afraid I will overwhelm everyone. Then trying to be sure you hit longarm as well as domestic machine quilting, is taking a toll on my mind. I also need to learn power point which I have never learned, was not around when I was in school and no use for it. Yep, I am asking the kids to show me and set it up. Then to organize all the info so it flows nicely and in a organized matter instead of all over the place.

    I AM DONE TADA WHIPPEE YAHOO ZIPEDEE DO DA ZIPEDEE .. ok ok I am FINISHED. TEEE HEEEE HEE.. I was stupidly happy over that. All of my Diamond and all of my Ruby blocks are now done. If your block is not at your home within one week let me know and I will do a photo check as not sure if they are all in my album here yet or not. Might still be on the camera. OMG I did it. Thank you everyone for letting me relearn how to quilt and think better while doing it. I had a blast with all the colors and fabrics. Some challenged me and some were not my first pick had I bought it and in the end I was so suprise how much I liked them all. I think you may see it that way to. How a bigger piece may not work in your mind but combined it changes and well that is what this is all about. Opening our minds and quilters abilities to new and interesting challenges. This is so fun. OK Yosemitesa, HIT IT>> ONe TWO THREE... (she is putting on tap shoes be patient).

    Jaba, I decided after a craft revamp and the explosion of stuff on my dinner table we are going with RED, GOLD (or yellow instead of metallic) and WHITE for ornaments this way I can hopefully get more donation ornaments than if I pick a specific theme like hearts and stars. I need so many. Now my sis says why not make a tree for the firedepartment that they pick a family every year and bring a tree, presents and all the fixings for Christmas. So.. now I might need to do two. I wish she had that good idea say in January you know? I am going to do some very simple hearts out of fabric with a little heart in felt sewn to the front. I have tons of small print red with white dots fabric and lots of white felt.. ideas anyone send them my way. Totally open. Oh yes, small pinecones I have lots of glitter, felt galore, fabric in red/white yes and lots of fabric yo yos and lets see pipe cleaners, glue cotton uh stuff.. ok I have stuff. No money however so help me work withmy stuff
