    I got a lovely square from Nancia. It is lovely and no need for you to do another one at all. I like it and it looks good with the others.

    getting things done I see. Jaba what beautiful placemats. I absolutely love your idea and am stealing it for the next swap. I hope its not a pattened design. my luck designs by Jan! I truly could not see how all those different blocks were going to make matching sets and yet they are perfect. I think your the first here to put all your blocks to use am I right? anyone else put theirs together and have pictures? mine are waiting to be rowed up.

    I finally put them all together to show you my nice collection of blocks. The spot I chose however was too small for all so its in two pictures. I had to try to snap them before the cats came a calling! thanks for showing all your blocks there they came out pretty cool. That was fun fabric to play with. Now to figure out what color would best tie it all together there is a lot of yellow so that is out. any suggestions?Name:  diamonds useable blocks.jpg

    Lv2sew2011... your block is going out in the mail. Unless I get Areinn's F8, I am going to consider myself done!

    Spent today working in my "official" office (as opposed to the kitchen table) and I cannot believe how much better my back & knees feel after standing on carpet all day instead of hardwood!

    I've been working on blocks for the last few days and planning on it for the next 4 days and I can not believe my machine broke!!! I hit a pin and broke the needle, something I've done before w/o any problem, but now my top and bottom threads are not connecting when I sew. Does anyone know what could be wrong or what should I look at? The bobbin case looks OK, it's threaded right. I'm so upset, this was the time I set aside to finish my blocks.

    I'll need to see if I can borrow a machine from someone or I'll have to go buy a new one since I won't have time to get mine fixed in time. Life sure does throw you some curve balls sometimes!

    These blocks have either already gone out in the last day or will go out tomorrow:

    @oldcatlady: Fraew loves her block! Can't wait to see it in person. Thank you.

    Good luck with fixing your machine.

    ok I have lost track of whose blocks are who. That is what happens when I try to take a vacation, get sick twice and allow my brother to stay in there for a couple weeks. I love all the blocks I have gotten. I had 52 I made and sent back home and I currently have 45. I am in no hurry.

    Also is it bad that I have already cut my fabric for the next boomerang. This time I am only doing a small group.

    oldcatlady, take all your bobbin apart, vacuum it really good, you may have just a little piece of the needle stuck it in. Get all the lint and re oil, put it back together and see if it makes a difference. It not, you've knocked it out of timing and you'll have to take it in for repairs, unless you know how to reset it. Usually this is what happens if cleaning good doesn't resolve it.

    I've never taken apart my machine-it's a little scary but I'm going to have to do it. I just called the man who usually works on it and his wife told me he is dying of pancreatic cancer. Puts everything into perspective for me! I don't know anyone else so will try to take it apart. If that doesn't work I guess it means I have to buy a new machine! Any case, I'm sorry to say my blocks are not going to be done on time. I took this week between xmas and new years off to work on them. I shouldn't have scheduled it until the last minute but I had other commitments. I hope to get them done soon so I will be allowed to sign up for the next Boom.

    SheriR, I was almost finished with your block when it broke. I'm going to try to hand piece the remaining part so I can get it mailed to you on monday. I LOVE your fabric! I'm going to try to get fabric matched up and cut so when I get a machine it will be quicker. I will PM you if you are on my list to do yet. If you need the blocks asap send me a PM and I will put you ahead of the class.

    I'm so sorry I will not get them out on time. It takes me a lot of time to make a block-I'm one of those that pins, measures and presses as I go and makes sure each section is the right size, I know, alittle OCD of me isn't it?
