    Well well well an explosion of blocks! I have to pull mine out and do a quick overall quilt preview.. just to show how great they all look. I can't tell you how many are still out I do think I have a ton in. So that is good news! I already have my fabric cut for the next one. halloween pumpkins on black or orange no ghosts or witches just pumpkins. and.. maybe cats so I know it surely is out of season but this way surely they will all come home and I can make a nice quilt before the season hits. And maybe the 10th boom I can do .. easter or christmas groan you guys but I am geared up and ready to go. I am envious of those with stickers to put on your envelope wow that looks lovely to me. so I will start addressing them now at least with my address maybe put postage on them and I am ready to go! I think this time I will stick with four or five blocks I like making and probably do a much better job at accuracy. Heck do something forty or fifty times right??

    Just uploaded five more grownup blocks to my sent album. Look if you dare. Scrapper, Mosher92, Tam...Moo, Nancia(two for you- I call them "Cats on Crack" and "Cats at Peace," the fabric met your criteria, I swear...but when I finished, I realized it wasn't the "calm" block you requested so I used the last scraps and made a second block lol...I hope you like one of them....

    Nine blocks to go for me. I've mailed to 28 boom swappers and received grown up blocks back from 20 of all y'all. Thanks ladies!!

    I received a block from Daisey today, I really like the pattern, very nice. And the block I received last week which I was too busy to walk down stairs and get the name was from Linda58. Both blocks are wonderful. I am finally sending howm blocks to Lv2sew2011. Both are headed home in same envelop, from Diamonds and Pearls.

    I am busy working on some projects that need to get in the mail by the weekend! I love the Rush before Christmas, my head is so full, don't know which way to turn!

    I did finally find a camera I liked with in the right price range! I bought the Sanyo, less than $100 but the reviews were really good. I just hope it has as good as pictures that my Olympus had! Should be in the mail soon.

    Will post an update of Missing blocks, but need to get back to my sewing machine!
    Give a smile away today, someone you meet might need one!

    I love that sashing you did on that quilt! Where did you find the pattern for the sashing? Not sure Ive ever heard of Window Box sashing but I love it! Thanks for posting the pictures!

    Thanks Judy. Ive heard of Attic Windows but never attempted it ....yet! Im always looking for new ways to sash a quilt. I have enough blocks for a blue/white quilt and when I get the rest of the blocks back from this swap Ill have enough for a mauve, romantic quilt also. I have problems deciding what colors to sash with but I like sashing between the blocks. Thats why I like to see pictures of finished projects to give me inspiration!

    Glad that helped you and yes attic windows. I didn't want to miter all those corners so I just made 1/2 triangle squares instead, hence kind of my own pattern. Just figured out the right size. I really love this quilt and enjoy looking at it when I'm long-arming a quilt(in the same room) and it covers up the ugly fabric, weird floral, on the hide a bed. Dual purpose, works for me!!

    Daisey sent me a gorgeous block. I will try to post but if your on Daisey and want to post it please do. I soooo love the red you chose its perfect. I sent out a few pieces in red and to date have received only a couple so its nice to have that extra color to brighten up what is turning out to be a buzzingly wonderful quilt. Thanks Daisey!

    I love her new picture too April, she is showing some attitude! Good for her. I Swear I remember thinking she was just turning two! My Nephew, whom I raised for 8 years after my sister passed away just turned 32! Wow was I surprised! You know how old your own are all the time because the contact is constant, well usually! But when you see others peoples kids get older that is when it really hits me how much time has passed! He Graduated in 98 so I figured just a few years ago! Then sat down and did the math! Yikes has it really been 14 years... I am feeling old!

    Sorry I have been absent from the boards so much lately, but it has been an extremely lucrative Sewing Season for me!
    We did very well in the Craft fair but best part is the mass amounts of orders coming in! I feel like I have finally filled a spot in my community, and they are asking for me to either fix it or make it! The really sad thing is they wait way too long to to possible get it in time for Christmas! But being the OCD nut that I am I am seriously trying to get'er done!

    Tomorrow, Dec 7th will be our 2nd Anniversary, I can't believe it! Seems like just last week I was here bragging about finding Mr Perfect! LOL (I did find out he is not, but thankfully neither am I and we work together very nicely with our quirky ways) So we are spending the day together decorating the house for Christmas. It has become a tradition (ok seriously it will only be the second time but hopefully many more) for us to Get in the Holiday spirit by sharing our special day. We have been together 4 years, and to all you single ladies wanting a good man in your life, we met on the internet! Seriously it is a great place to meet wonderful people, after all I have meet all of you here I would have to say that about 90% of my friends I have meet online!

    Well I don't know why the chatter box is up so early, but I do want to tell you all that I love the hard work you have put into making the wonderful blocks for me. I look forward to the next boom! And not being one to want to rush time, I do look forward to January and a new year!


    And the best news of all! I ordered a Camera and it should be here tomorrow! Finally I can take some pictures again!

    Have a wonderful day,

    Marybeth

    Alright marytoddliz, you are making me realize that I'm getting older every day. On December 14th, it will be my 10 years since I graduated from college. I also graduated from High School in 1998. Seems like yesterday, however my body tells me otherwise.
