    Just wanted to give an update..

    To make it easier the following I have NOT received:
    - areinn
    - Lv2sew2011

    All of my F8th's have been mailed.

    I have received grown-ups from the following:
    - Abby's Mom
    - jaba (mailed yours 10/05)
    - joanelizbay (mailed yours 10/02)
    - ljdugas31 (mailed yours 10/03)
    - marytoddliz (mailed yours 10/02)
    - moonrise (mailed yours 10/03)
    - TwinRiverFarm
    - Elisabrat (mailed yours 10/02)
    - urgodschild2
    - goldendog55
    - Tam...Moo
    Thank you everyone. They are great!

    I will be working on some more grown-ups this weekend. I am working on getting out the ones I have received grown-ups from first. I didn't get to get any done this week, as I have been working on a doll quilt for the Oct. DQ Swap, and also A woman's fav. things swap, so I have been super busy this week, but now I am done with those 2 things, and can get back to my blocks

    Pics are in my sig. line for the ones I made and the ones I have received. (I have only loaded received ones if I have mailed back your block.) I am working on more...

    Le Brat, does that mean you're done with us? You'll still lurk, right? (Not that lurking is bad... I've been doing it a bunch lately).

    Hey, do you want some snow? I feel like I could share and it's only mid-October!

    I would be happy to help you with PP. In fact, there's even a way to work it (in the basic form) through Google and make it real-time interactive (for learning, not for presenting).

    Kelly, lurk? heck no> I am going to bug the heck out of everyone for the next three months because well I can. until they kick me out which is another distinct possibility. I like everyone here too much. We miss you girl. I know your busy but GET BACK IN HERE lol.. sigh I will wait. I am just happy I did what I set out to do and beat my own deadline. I owe a large thanks to you and your help with my troubles with hst. You saved me there.

    ok now what I hope I dont have to dance and sing by myself. I thought Yosemitesa is hired for that job. We pay her enough .. (she's free right?) so she better step right to it with her perky little self and do the neener dance. whooo whooo where are you?

    I now have 23 blocks in. I will post later I have to lay down a bit my bck is killing me but one more newbie to add to the already huge show. I will have a monster quilt to put together for my sister Barbie. She will love it and I cant wait. Maybe I should quickly give her all teh blocks and some thread and say here love ya and RUN.. she can quilt it. That is friendly right? I was throwing in the thread!

    Thank you sweet girl watching me dance wouldnt have been pretty. I can't use my legs as they dont work too well anymore except for standing and hobbling. Its sorta funny dancing from your waist up lol.. I do a lot of the toddler rock and well it is a sight to behold.

    Tam moo I had almost purchased some of the light blue in your fabric about 10 times this summer from the stitch sanctuary. they had it on clearance and I wanted it and wanted it and I was good and didnt get it. now I see it in your blocks and well its talking to me AGAIN. I thought of it the whole time when I worked with yours.. that is going to be a very pretty quilt. The bright blue was an excellent choice for that fabric.

    Nancia and Nexxus I think you make your blocks and finish them when you can. Just before January if you could.. I will have time in January to sew the quilts together just in time to finish before ANOTHER SWAP! I already picked up envelopes. Talk about ahead of the game. Hey JABA want to swap something? lol I have purple and teal and can make .. something lol.. great way to fill your mailbox! hows about table mats? I will make you a table mat and you can make me ornaments for the senior tree. I NEED ORNIES for this tree (hint hint). calling all elves I need ornaments.

    charlotte-marie, I feel the same way it has been a total pleasure working for all of you. I received so many pretty blocks with a good amount still going to sneak there way into my box still. I also received so many little notes with them and I appreciate that very much. Like getting something from a friend.. and this is what this quilt is all about isn't it?

    HELP...I was talking to my neice last night on Facebook and told her I needed to stay OUT of fabric stores. She informed me she wanted a "Grateful Dead" quilt....I may be "old" but I do know who Grateful Dead is but cant find any fabric with them on it. I looked on EBay and they have wall hangings but no defination of what it is etc. Does anyone know of a site that might have fabric with rock bands??? Got 3 of my boom block quilts at the quilters now..anxious to get them back! Gonna finish the top of my Civil War quilt today since its raining..oh and a couple more things..SEND ME all the snow you want! I LOVE winter and snow AND Montana and Wyoming!! and the final word of the morning..GO CARDS!!!

    I don't know about Greatful Dead fabric, but I think most of the head shops sell something that you might could cut down. I've seen huge batik-style wall hangings, flags, etc - and you know, if you did something with large (like 15.5") blocks in batiks and then appliqued a gigantic GD logo on it, I bet that would come out pretty awesome. So, my suggestion is skip the fabric stores & go to the head shop.

    joanelizbay, just google them and you'll find lots. Rock band in the 90"s. All their logo's usually have skelton's on them. Don't really know why?? They did do some recordings that were actually pretty good, "Browned eyed girl" liked that one, maybe 'cause my eyes and very dark brown. Anyway....you find lots of info

    Those are great!!! We went to Galveston Island today. We saw the sculptured trees, ate at a fabulous cafe I never knew was there and still wouldn't if we didn't go see the trees. Drove out to East Beach and watched the big cargo ships. Lil man LOVED it!!! Then we went to Stewart Beach and played in the sand. Lil man and big kid (hubby) played in the water. LOVE 80's and 90's temps in October!!!

    Joan, your best bet would be to take a wall hanging or two and go from that. I am attaching a link to one of the logo's that they are most famous for and of course you can tye dye your own fabric. Go to thrift stores and look for tye dyed tshirts and use them for fabric. Good luck.

    once more lovely blocks! Yosemitesa it sounds like a wonderful day. We have a warming up week too going to hit 80 mid week then hopefully fall will come. I am good to 80 after that its air conditioner time.
    My advice which you dont have to take skip the head shop unless your comfortable with going in one. I am such a geek I would worry what if one of my friends saw me go in there I would find that wall hanging on ebay first just me.. dork I know sorry Kelly but some of us are a bit older and well .. nope.
    I would do a wild batik one bright colors like dyed fabric or get a tshirt if your machine can work with t material and use that as the center part the rest well bold colors. I went once to a horrible concert of theirs, hated it but the X loved them. I was well .. not thrilled. Worse yet my first was born NY's day and they were on tv and while i was in labor the man watched 2 hours of it.. so they are not winning prizes with me lol

    last Jaba the first week of November is the hopeful date to get ornies for the seniors together. This gives me time to count, sort etc so we can get them evenly distributed on the tree and room decorations. I NEED MORE ORNAMENTS (anyone hear that one?) for the tree so if you would like to whip up a couple let me know. thanks everyone who has said they could help.
