    Elisabrat you can come too! and if you want chicken there's lots in the freezer, no problem. Actually both of you are babies. I could have been a young bride and be your mother since I'm 66....lordy lordy you better say your thank you's to the heavens now. Okay enough, shampooer ready to go on this kitchen, then to the sewing room and pick some yummy fabric for mamahauser.

    See I'm all ready. And here is a pic of my fabric. (The bottom one is what I'm sending.) The others are snippets I bought that match for my own block and for borders and binding and what not. Shades of reds and greys and whites. You will see when you get it. I'm excited and off the the PO now! HUGS!!!

    Happy Quilting!!!

    Good news...went to the post office and had her weigh one envelope and put it thru the squissy slot and it fit so all them went for 45 cents except Canada. Let me know if you get a postage due on any of them and Ill complain to the post office! She said if they are sealed good there should be NO problem going thru the machine...we shall see...All 38 are in the mail! Have FUN.

    So joanelizbay, did you mail one to yourself if there are 38 sent? If you do not count yourself, there are 37 right? Or is there an extra going somewhere special up northeast?

    Yep, my momma is older than you jaba, you a baby, but the same age as my daddy. (Stepdad who is my dad)

    They say you are only as old as you feel, well, I think young thoughts, do young things like quilting, so I must be young, I do just tell the body to line up whether it likes it or not sometimes it wins most times I win. Back to work now.

    I received 2 envelops from you today. Upon closer inspection it looks like you send two to my address but one was meant for Abby's Mom. I will put it in another envelop and hope to get it out this week to Abby's Mom.

Size:  1.23 MBQMomma I know it's all in the mind, it's just some days I really have to convince myself. All good. Mamahauser your block is coming home today. Don't peek if you don't want to know. Today's good, finished block, put binding on Boom 7 quilt...now to the hand sewing, cleaned my carpet in the kitchen _will post pic below, I do have the cleanest floor in town, today anyway. Someone asked to see my stash so took some pics. You can see my 2 little pink baskets for the boom 8 groups, some cottons in there, blenders and batiks, then the fabric I buy by the bolt. Little bins and shelf that is hanging are FQ's, F8's, squares, jelly rolls and extra blocks left over some some project. Tall bookcase is 1 - 4 yd. pieces, the other is wide quilt backs and kids fabric and some future projects that are there with patterns.

    Ok jaba, when I come over I am not bringing any of my stuff, we can just use yours, you have more than me. How nice and neat and tidy girl. Love your kitchen. now I can show my DH that I am not that bad on having fabric. he thinks I have to much, well, you win. My UFOs are even getting cleaned up, I just have stacks of finished quilts that I need to get selling instead of just admiring.

    Didn't show all that QMomma, batting is in another room and finished quilts. I have 6 waiting to be quilted in my long arm room. Told you I took the whole basement. It has taken me awhile to build up that stash, when I see something I really like I buy it but Don't have to buy hardly anything to go with main fabric cause I shop my own store. And that's good, we can get rid of it and we'll have to go on a restocking shopping trip!! Told hubby if something happens he should just advertise for sale quilter's stash and he won't have a hard time getting rid of it.
    thanks for the compliments on my kitchen. I really do love it now. Remodeled about 1 1/2 yrs. ago and hubby built all my cupboards, that's what he does is build custom cabinets. These are out of lyptus wood.

    Does he travel for remodel jobs? We're just slightly north of you... We redid our bathroom (took it to the studs) by ourselves in about 5 weeks. It was the singularly most trying period of my life (and I'm including basic training, child birth, and 13 deployments in comparison) and I would rather stick a dirty grapefruit spoon into my eye socket than revisit ANY project like that ever again. Unfortunately, the kitchen is up on the chopping block for this upcoming summer (although I'm trying like hell to push it to the summer AFTER I graduate).

    Seriously. I obviously can't pay him in quilts or anything "barter-ish" but I do NOT want to play that game ever again. Ever. Again. Ever.

    Yup he does, has gone to Washington and delivered a BIG custom bar he built for a guys man cave, Billings - cabinets for kitchen and bathrooms, and the same for 3 people in Denver. He's building all the kitchen cabinets and bathroom vanities etc. for a 12 plex that a guy is building in Cody, Wy. right now. Wish it would slow down a little so we could take the toyt hauler and go play. Long week end coming, I swear we are going hell or high water..

    Well, ladies here is my update. I have mailed all of the blocks for all three groups. Yesterday I received F8's from marytoddliz, yosemitesa. I made their blocks as well as moonrise's and shipped them out today. Now today I received F8's from jaba, missgigglewings, themamahauser in my diamond groups and Difergie in Sapphires and jaba's Ruby group block. I hope to make the five blocks tonite and ship out tomorrow, but it depends on how long I'm online tonight. This sure is fun, love the Booms.
    Life is Good!

    Ok Jaba, forget your hubby I am marrying you.. you can have him I can have you. OMG what a nice home you keep even that sewing room, you must have a wife to come pick up after you.. I know I need one. TAG YOUR IT!

    I think that little book case of yours has more room than I have fabric. WOWSA. You guys are my fabric heros. heck with jewelry I think you are what all would be quilters aspire to be.. fabric happy

    I received fabric: ljdugas 31, twinriversfarms, doghouser mom and last but not least Abbys mom.

    I sent marytoddliz and yosemitesa out.

    I will Not remember all who received mine sorry its me, going back writing it down and then.. where is the list where did I see that marking the wrong one.. its the brain thing I mentioned so sorry upfront. What will work for me and its a pain foryou is a PM because it is saved safely. And I would say in a week stateside recipients should have got theirs as it was mailed two days ago.. so just hollar there is more lovely bee fabric where it came from (way too much).

    I need my sicky today. MARYTODDLIZ where are you? arent you well yet? come out and play with me.. uh oh dont make me break out in song the rest will kill you once you get well.. whoo whoo where can you be? come out and play with me, under the apple tree.. whooo whoo .. owe that rock hurt! stop it guys ..

    I need quilting medical attention. blocks lots of little mental blocks here. troubles, I got troubles, I got troubles on my mind... alright alright I will eat maybe that will help. love you guys.

    oh oh Miriam can you pm me with your design concept as I cant remember what you wanted. someone else didnt want prints argh who was that you know the no naked me prints, or something like that oh I know novelty prints.. who was that one? the rest that arrived with notes or swatches ok.. oh oh wait
    joan, the yellow one there is a tiny bit of red on your swatch sample do you have a name of that fabric so i can see what it is I am going to try to work to match? or just say little red is ok no red yada yada and please in a pm for me memory minder.


    my first thoughts guys that the doc seuss would be hard to match etc.. so far it was the easiest as well the concept was very clear to me.. funny how those things work. hope its not a disappointment I truly did try girly when I put it together and its actually a tiny bit over 12.5 I think not sure but its of a shape it can be trimmed ..I have issues right now getting perfect exact so I hope you can trim it and be happy. I trim it, it ends up 1/8th short in one spot again and I would shoot something. not good.
    Linda
    Here today... why what a lucky bunch we are.
