    Heheh no I'm serious I've only been sewing since May. I just am a little OCD and super critical and high standard of myself. Usually that results in me talking myself out of ever trying, or giving up entirely. So I'm pretty proud that I'm FINISHING things for this. This is a lesson in many things for me and it is fun.

    Charlottemarie's block will be hopping to her tomorrow. My Dad cracked up at it several times so I do think it's a winner winner chicken dinner.

    Of course you can peek on my link if you so desire.

    Moonwork ... that block for CharlotteMarie is FANTASTIC! Well done.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    Everyone good day to you all. I think we are hitting some lovely fall weather a bit cooler! woke up and had to close that front door.. (we sleep with it open ok screen is there but it keeps it cool). Frosty toes! wuz it was only 50 sheesh. Still socks are good. I will be mailing back to you your block finished today Immemother hope you enjoy it. I am picking away at the blocks one at a time. And having lots of fun while doing it. April I hope your getting a bit better, you post so little it worries me. You have done so much for the quilting board members is there anything we can do for you? I know your monitoring this even if your not posting so PM me or anyone of us and we would be happy to help as best we can (thank you your spokesman will now turn the microphone back to you)..

    Jan, I am mailing the side swap today. I have gotten a little behind between my IH getting worse again and Izabella running an almost 105 temperature
    I am also mailing home blocks today to all of those in my album and previously mentioned
    Linda, thanks so much for the concern...if you could find a way to get rid of this pain in my head permanently I would be ever so grateful lol I have an appointment on Monday with my neurosurgeon because the pain is just getting worse and worse and my lower back feels like it is on fire & numb again Last time this meant a revision, we shall see what it means this time.
    I received my second grown up block and it is from NYGal and it is beautiful! I love the colors you used with it. I will get a picture of it and post it this weekend.
    I am trying to make sure I am more attentive to you all..I hate not chatting but being on the computer too long truly aggravates my head. I have even gotten to the point where I wear sunglasses almost all the time and they have removed the florescent lights from my office at work...one day at a time right?
    You are all doing such a fabulous job on the swap and I am proud to know you all.
    Hugs
    April

    Ditto here too April. So sad that you are not feeling well. I will definitely pray for you and Isabella to get past all this. We all love you guys and understand if you are not able to post. Will be praying for a cure for you two. Let us know what if anything we could do to help you. Hugs and prayers coming your way.

    THE NEENER NEENER DANCE? Hope you liked the showwooo ooo? that dance? well called for in this case that is a pretty block indeed.

    alright I stalled enough I received fabric from Daisy but in diamonds and also two blocks also in diamonds so no new pics to post here but lots to peak at in my albums. Sending, receiving I have trouble keeping up with me sometimes.

    oh I have to tell you strange things happen here. Today while shopping a little kitten accidentally jumped in this box and accidentally got in my car and accidentally walked (while in the box mind you) up those stairs and is now accidentally sleeping on the couch. That is my story and I am sticking to it. Oh he is so cute. this one.. is MINE. my cats however think these accidents have to stop yesterday. Kinda like men, I cant hear you la la la la la.. actually my man said oh.. ok? when I told him about the crazy accidents. Love that guy.

    NOTE: Jaba, sure you wont marry me? you will have enough canned food to feed an army! I bought a meazly four clam shells of strawberries today to make jam while they are still sweet. Jalepeno is next then one or two batchs of peach spiced jam.. that is like nada next to you. Wowsa. someone sold cinnamon red hot jelly recently at our craft fair. Never seen it, any good? seems easy enough to try but a waste of sugar if its not good and time you know?

    if jaba did not post her veggies here she should show you what she has grown this year. Larger than a truck potatos, dinner table size bell peppers you HAVE TO SEE THEM TO BELIEVE THEM..

    Elisabrat you are so funny, I'd marry you in a heart beat! You are a truly wonderful person, I can just tell by talking with you, I love you and your spirit!!!
    Got 7 more qts. of stewed tomatoes done last night, cleaned a quart of strawberries and put them in the freezer and finished the customers baby quilt. This morning started my marathon sewing day yippee!!!

    I love purples! give it to meeee..

    Elisabrat.. I had that SAME situation happen with my little fabric keeper-downer. I went to my mom's house and this little kitten jumped into my pocket, and then well, hopped into my truck, and walked into my house and also fell asleep on the couch! my fatso, who was also of a similar situation, he jumped into my mom's pocket, hopped into my brother's truck, and walked into my house, but he went to sleep on the bed instead.. he wasn't quite so sure that he would like a new baby sister but he LOVES her now and if he goes more than.. oh 30 minutes without interacting with her he starts walking around the house meowing for her to come out. She does the same thing. Ever since she came he has stopped his neurotic hair pulling, and attacking me. I was seriously pondering getting him therapy for his anger issues. Apparently he was angry that his other siblings didn't also hop into my mom's pocket when he did and he needed a sibling.

    Anyhoot. Uhm.. so I've been kidnapped for 2 days.. which is incredibly draining.. Interacting with humans.. *shudder* I've had my fill for the month.. at least I got to oggle men in dress military uniform... rwar. and had delicious prime rib, for free. So I guess that makes up for the having to TALK to people. But I did meet a lady that is a part of a knitting club that's nearby so I guess I might actually learn to knit instead of just making messes on a needle.

    I did get the fabric I needed to finish the block with the puzzle piece fabric.. did I already say that? I feel like I mentioned that before. Anyhoot. Should go to bed, have homework due tomorrow so should get up sometime before 1pm maybe.

    LOL Anastasia getting up before 1? egad. My daughter is the same way noon would be her first choice. Classes in the morning which means she gets up at 7. She needs a two hour nap in the afternoon as it wears her out lol I tell her GET UP YOU LAZY REAR get stuff done, she laughs, I also call her Princess for sleeping all the time. HEY your not a rupie your a PRINCESS with accidental kitties.

    Jaba lovely blocks, travelin grandma wows lots of blocks and NYgal I am trying to get to yours. I have it all filed in the order they came in and there are also 37 from my other swap blended in the when they came in order. I feel like some of you are sewing like lightening.. zoom zoom zoom you guys. Me, donta donta donta da donta (my donkey pace). I am loving the variety I am getting in my blocks if you havent whipped mine out yet if you could consider more pink or white that woud be great so I could get a balance of the greens and the ones lighter also? just a thought. (grin wink wink)

    Jaba - love that block from Moonwork, I only wish the one I made for you was half as pretty.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    I love that block from her too, wish she'd send me the pattern or tell me what block it is or where she got it or??? AND I'm sure your block will be just as beautiful but now I have to wait another day before it gets here.....what's up with that? heehee! Don't know what to say Elisabrat about your new little kitty, yup he is cute, as long as he's at your house. I am deathly allergic to them, so very glad you're taking care of him for me. See missy, you're doing me such a big favor and you didn't even know it!! Yup Yup you have done your good deed, now you can feel so much better. Just kind of warms the heart doesn't it?
    Almost forgot, thanks all for liking that little baby quilt. Really did turn out pretty cute and it was an easy one for me to do since my very most favorite color is anything purple, well almost anything...never was a big fan of the flying purple people eater. Oh my I am getting carried away, better hit that shower and get my you know what into that sewing room and begin...tada!!!! Check in with all you wonderful people later..have a great day

    Success!!! I was awake before 1. However, a piece of homework that I thought I had saved but still had open in Word, has disappeared because my terroristic kittens pulled the plug on my laptop last night. Ugh there's a reason I tend to lock them in the bathroom at night. I didn't last night cause they weren't terrorizing ME.. nooo.. they were terrorizing my homework. Ohwell, it was just one of those "tell us about you" homeworks that come as the first assignment for every online class ever. And well, we all know I like to talk about ME. At least I excessively saved my math homework so I don't have to redo that. Then, after I submit these, i can SEW for a few days.

    jaba -- here's the pattern I used. It was one I copied from goodness who knows who or where though. I have paper copies just shuffled together and don't know where they came from. Not a good system but it's too late for me now .

    I put the ruler by it so you could see the dimensions. You might be able to print it out and go from there.

    Glad y'all like it. I think it makes up real nice. Be sure to use "scant 1/4 inch" seams or it won't turn out 12.5.

    Nexxus -- a scant 1/4 inch is a few threads shy of a full 1/4 inch seam...more than 1/8 inch but less than a 1/4 inch.

    On many paper piecing patterns if you use a full 1/4 inch seam you run the risk of your block being just short enough to make you nutso.
