    I don't have EQ either but it's because I don't think I would be smart enough to run the d--- thing. Have got a brand new embroidery machine that has sat for a year because I guess I can't read directions very well. I really need that hands on deck teacher you know? I've been fast at work today and just mailed out (includes rubies and diamonds) quiltermomma-2, nexxus831-2, and felicia-2, and moonwork42029. Received F8's from scrapper, oldcatlady for both, and urgodschild. Got a finished block back from the diamonds group from SheriR. pics are in the album if you want to see. AND anastasia I had my brain fart today also over moonworks block. It does help when you cut the pieces the size you're suppose to, did I, absolutely not. I was not going to waste that work and her fabric, so revised made about 3 more triangles, cut it down and added a border.....wowsers, I like it and don't have those lucky little bugs a crawlin' anymore. That's my day folks.....

Got block mailed to Moonwork. and a friend gave me a Gracie Quilt frame and I bought her quilting machine she had to go with it. Now to put it together and learn how to use it. But... Tomorrow we leave for a 5 day visit to Chattanooga to see friends and son. I wish I could change my plans but....

    Well that's because I have stopped working on my own project in order to do these. I chose all of the block patterns from the Blocks Galore website which I enjoy.

    Goodmorning sunshiners! Another beautiful day in paradise, even cooler today which is much closer to lovely. Just had the turkey trot so I had better write before the pack come in and look at me like I am stupid as they are out of birdfeed. OOPS. I was sewing helloooo.

    I received fabric from April which i think I posted and from NYgals. I also received a beautiful block from Anastasia which I need to photograph. Thank you so much its absolutely PERFECT. Girls, dont let her kid you she is a resident expert here. Yipes. Anastasia if you want to post the pic that would be fine I will get it into my album. Hey as your getting your blocks in is it too much to have them also posted here too? everyone has albums but its nice to get that instant gratification and get to view them without leaving the page in my humble opinion.
    Hope to get three more out in the mail today one ruby and one diamond. I think I have done ten so far. .. crud thats not very many all things considered. NO wonder the box still looks full.

    Here today... why what a lucky bunch we are.

    oh I love your block.. those points wowsa. So very pretty great work on that.

    Anastasia thanks I am going to go check itout, sure hope it needs templates! lol.. oh crud hope I get more of that stuff to cut them with. Anyone know if ace hardware sells things like the template plastic? sure wish I could get it in thicker stuff (how to cut it dont have a clue) so you dont roll accidentally over it with the rotary blade. suggestions?

    well all i can say is WOW WOW WOW!!!!

    i got my first 'grown up block' back from 'anastasia' today!!!
    i'm absolutely 'over the moon' with it!!!!!

    it's 'sew' appropriate to my 'DH's' career... my 'DH' is in the 'royal navy'...

    'anastasia's' block is next to mine which i made in my fabric to try out the block i am making for you, my fellow boomers...

    can you guess which block she made for me???
    and don't they go well together!!!

I only have a stash of scraps I stole from my mom and some fabric bits of unknown fiber content that someone else gives me but I like to buy up pretty fat quarters when I can. Glad you like them ladies. Im trying new things and learning. Elisabrat I can post a copy of yours later if you want when I go leech some internet

    Jacquie ....

    Anastasia and I had already shared some pics so I know she made the sailboat block - and yes - both those blocks play nice together. How appropriate she made the sailboat for Naval hubby!!!

    My Dad gets the mail everyday while I'm at work. The anticipation of what's in those puffy envelopes just about drive him bonkers until I get home. I of course being the good daughter, take my time by going to the bathroom and opening any other mail first and have to pet our cats a little bit. Once I do open the mail, he is at my elbow or at the end of the table waiting, shifting his weight from foot to foot.

    So imagine today how he felt with 4 (FOUR) puffy squishies taunting him from the table!

    I received 2 f8's from savannahrandons and phannie

    I also got some great blocks!

    Travelinggramma sent 2 blocks -- I've never ever had a twister before and love it.
