    Don't worry Jaba, I got them both. I don't think I am missing anything. When April said to check our addresses I just did not notice it. I have a great post office here, they just get it to me.

    I was told when worrying about my house becoming VERY messy when the kids came - "Lower your standards"
    I did and it worked - and my mom wasn't happy! she is a classic cleanaholic - I on the other hand can go weeks with out lifting a finger.
    So today I am not working - and what am I doing - moving all the furniture around and hoping the dust flies off it when I do! Then if I can find the floor I just may vacuum. Taking down the summer pictures and putting up a bit of autumn - thats how I decorate - pictures!! i had done alot of counted cross stictch in my day - before the tendinitous made it too painful - so have all these seasonal pieces that I just switch around. Works for me!
    Have a great day!

    I've done that tgramma, I must have drove my kids nuts when they were little, but as grown-ups they sure practice putting stuff away and in it's place. They tell me it's easier than having to do a bunch of it. I don't mind the vacumm and the dusting if I have to, but that furniture moving is for the birds. I'd rather just shove a broom behind the couch, swish it back and forth, and hope I got the cobwebs. Gees, now you got me thinking I really should go do this, well maybe tomorrow, just can't seem to get real fired up to get it done today. Swapping out pics for a new look sounds alot easier. I'll just imagine your fall decor and that's even better. You could post a pic and then I can keep it in my mind for a VERY VERY long time.

    Hehehe my kitties help with the disaster. I may make a fairly neat pile while I'm working but they look at that pile as something akin to kids jumping in a pile of leaves and they drag it from one end of the house to the other.. Its real fun when I find it in my bathtub. I don't decorate, way too much work, but before i got this smaller-than-a-cracker-box house I used to move my furniture around all the time, it's fun. And my furniture is surprisingly light. But now I have really no other way it can be placed in this house and my tv armoire is like 400lbs no lie it took 3 guys and lots of struggling to get it into my house. It's probably staying with the house when I move hahaha.
    That party sounds fun if I'm not the one buying the fabric for it. Cause then I could go get more fabric

    We're doing you a very big favor anastasia, you said you didn't have any stash, now's your chance. When did you want all of us to show up? We'll bring some fq's to trade too and help you out, but have the margarita's ready.

    Hey Buddy'sMom.. how do you feel about spiders? Just curious.. a big fat hairy one might get squished onto your quilt.

    Ok.. so.. tried machine applique for the first time.. did those itty bitty zigzag.. and.. I want to stab it.. it makes the little edges all fray-ey.. I hope it holds tho.. I think i'm gonna go back over it with embroidery floss and make it all pretty and for sure these pieces aren't going anywhere after that. Aside from that.. it's pretty stinkin cute. Not as cute as Moonworks' but pretty cute.

    I have posted all that I received so far. They are in my folder also of rubies received. I have two folders for rubies. I just took pics of ones I made today I have one for Mary C in canada and two for Nancy B in Mt and one for Joan L. in NH going out tomorrow. Not sure which group and all but that was the count of what I finished lastnight and today. Joan L was the block that magically appeared in my lemon bowl. OH CRUD no wonder she didnt get it..

    Margarita party what a grand idea, who would have come up with that? and sorry Anastasia but you dont want us all tromping up your stairs relaxed on margaritas, the floor will be lovely. just get those chips up off it first ok? oh oh oh and you have cake, you have that big giant cake.. oh oh fun fun fun party.
    Linda

    Yep I still have cake! oh that's true you just reminded me.. when my cousin was my roommate and I shoved her in the upstairs to live, she was one of those in-denial alcoholics.. but the one and only time I drank with her was New Years, and we had a HUGEEEE bottle of tequila and we got it 7/8th gone before we went to bed (yes I threw up, but I didn't have a hangover!) and the next morning with her hangover she fell down the stairs.

    Know exactly how you feel on that tequila elisabrat, happened to me on my 40th b-day. Love that stuff, yup tequila and tonic, most wonderful. But it really hurts when everyone is buying you shots, hugged the porcelain god all night long. Ouch!!!! all the next day, even hurt to walk.
    Phannie1 happy sewing again! It'll be like getting a brand new machine. You'll be able to crank those blocks right out the door now.

    Hello all ... just checking in. The batting for my baby quilt is in the dryer getting wrinkles out and as soon as that is done I can baste the sucker and start quilting. Haven't decided what quilting motif I'm going to use yet ... hmmmm.

    While batting is drying/de-wrinkling I took pic's of the blocks I received recently (*recently* meaning the last week or so!). So now you can Oooooh and Ahhhhh all my pretties and be oh so jealous!!!

    By the way ... my BD is October 18. Another October baby here. Yeah ... February is a very cold month and clearly our parents had ways of staying warm!!

    First two blocks are from CharlotteMarie - love the fabric selection!!

    Second two blocks are from MoonWork - including the "incredible growing block" that she just kept adding to. Love it!

    Last block is from our wonderful hostess April. This block is SOO COOL!!

    Thank you all, I am really very pleased all around with the blocks I am getting in. I'm also getting a good mix of 12" and other size blocks - so thanks again for helping me out in that regard.

    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    Also ... I believe that CharlotteMarie received my blocks. Pic's below. The Log Cabin is the one I called "Frog Soup". The purple fabric in the gecko block is the fabric I received from her.
