    No worries Elisabrat, Qmomma will love whatever you send her. She's easy to please and she won't have to sew it. I'm sure it's beautimous! Think she likes to be on her long arm finishing more than sitting and sewing. Which reminds me, I still have to wait until next year before she comes here and teaches me how to do those feathers. I try and try, nope, mental block, stress, arm freezes, just can't make myself do those. Going to my sewing room today and see if I can get an inspiration for something to make for my secret santa partner. Also it's a whole 38 degrees here today and getting ready to snow!!! Would you believe it? not ready for winter, hate snow, too cold and yesterday was 90. My blood doesn't change that fast.

    Well I fixed the block and it and BuddysMom's block are gonna go home today. So now I have 2 that are half finished that I need to finish, 4 I need to start, and still waiting on 1 fabric from a side swap.

    Yay for new livers... Today I have to go play at Joann's to shop for my secret santa International so I'm going to try to make it real fun. And I totally plan to wrap every darned thing. Going to look for some fabrics that I need to make/finish a few quilted projects. And it appears my ex roommate took all my paints.. *scowl* so I have to get some paints too for some projects.

    Jaba, I'm not overly fond of feathers like seems to be the rage right now, but they have their place. But I was watching Sharon Shambers video on marking quilts, and she showed some ways to help do feathers. She doesn't suggest drawing them but she showed how to do it if you draw them, but then says not to panic if you're not exactly on the line. Man I watched a whole bunch of her videos. She's amazingly informative. Learned more in 2 days watching her videos than I have in my 5 months of sewing hehehe. I'm sure you know all those things already but I didn't.

    Keep your snow.. I'm enjoying my 60-80's here in MN the last week and a half At least wait til I get past my BDay.. (Happy Bday peoples that i missed bdays) Actually I think they mentioned a possible flurries but they said it was no cause for panic cause it would go away real fast. But I don't think it came. But I guess its going to be in the 50's the rest of the week so I better get out today since it's going to get to 77. Off I go. Have fun while I'm gone.

    You all should totally peek at the latest block

    Anastasia are you the kind of kid who when you were little you used to sneak a peak into the packages, you know just untape one side so you could know what you got? or perhaps maybe poke a hole into the bottom of your candies to SNEAK A PEAK into them before you got the wrong one? you and your sneaky peakys. oh cute block

    cowboy boot scoot and boogy ready set go! this is tonights project.
    finished Quiltermommas block and truly it was hard for me I was darned scared to make it. Like waiting to get a failing grade and dont ask me why I had that feeling but I was worried seriously and I well don't spend oodles of time worrying about stuff these days or most of my life the it will be what it will be attitude has worked but today I was having stomach cramps over the darned thing. FROM HERE ON OUT EVERYONE I GIVE NOTICE: I am going to Hakuna Matada all of you.. your blocks will be.. what they will be. I will try and they will work. Because I said so lmao.. sorry had to write that. off to sing and stitch.. lucky you you cant hear me. I sing quiet horribly.

    Elisabrat, I was that way with Anastasia's block. I don't know why I was and I still think I took an easy way out but what can you do. If you want to take a look at it click on my signature line.

    I had to threaten to poke her with a pokey stick...

    So blocks mailed.. yay. And I WOULD have been one of those sneak a peeker kids but my family is a bunch of freaking tape addicts and if you could find a way to peek a corner it wouldn't have helped cause there was a lot of tape to have to move and attempt to look like you didn't peek. I certainly did shake though.

    I suppose if I can get the cat to stop sleeping on my cutting board I could work on immemothers.. I've had the pattern and fabric for awhile.. just being lazy for some reason.. oh yea.. buddysmom's block.. hehehe.

    Okay - Now I am nervous - just got Quiltermomma for my monthly swap only to learn here that she is an instructor . I mean I always try harder when doing a swap block - but still......
    Have mailed all my adult blocks back, received 10 plus one on the side. Life is good!
    Now if you want crazy - just look at Secret Santa thread!! -

    tgramma no need to worry, just like I told the "brat" she's not picky!! I can hardly wait til she gets on here and reads this, she's going to be laughing all day...I'm going to look for those video's and see what she does, thanks anastasia. There's just been some places on a quilt that the feathers would have looked so nice, key word "would have" if I could have.....and I agree they can certainly be way overdone.
    We got some snow yesterday but it all melted. 33 right now and my furnace is turned on now. Time to bring in the ole' logs and get the fireplace ready, oh lord, hate the thought of winter. Suppose the get about an 1 1/2" today and freeze again tonight, brrrr, 29 overnight last night. Need to shop for my SP today for a couple of things and some little extra's for the ornament swaps and then I might as well pick up ? for secret santa. Then I need to go to the post office and get 4 boxes and start filling them. Love it!! HO!HO!HO!

    all so much fuuunn.. hehe.. I'm working on Immemother's block today. Got it all cut out last night, then I should finish my other 2 blocks that are 1/2-3/4 finished. I packed up all my stuff in my secret PAL box last night, except the 2 projects I'm making and the one thing I forgot to buy. Half finished with one of those projects, and got out the supplies for the other one.. Need to work on my ornaments.

    So Jaba, also.. kinda funny, was looking at my mom's newest magazines, and BOTH had articles on doing feathers. hehe At least you're not alone. ok gonna go bang out this block and then do some math homework and then maybe finish a project.. I intend to be somewhat productive today... HA! right.

    I'm with moonwork chocolate, heath, butterfingers and peanut butter cups mostly. They have the taffy stuff in the grocery stores, right along with that candy corn. Went shopping today for odds and ends for SP swap and got it sent, then worked on the ornament swap and the secret santa. Can't find the candy for the santa swap yet, have some time though to look some more. No blocks in the mail today. All of mine have been sent home to you so if you don't have 1 from me please let me know.

    Just got back from DesMoines quilt show - nice show.

    Bought something for blocks I'm making for both Elisabrat & Immemother

    The rest of the stuff I bought is alllll mine

    Had a great time, saw some awesome quilts, spent not tooooo much money, test drove a few machines (actually the same machine - just badged differently) the HQ SweetSixteen and the Brother Tiara. Lovely machines ... the HQ is a smidge less expensive and they can offer direct support - so if you're in the market for a sit-down table model mid-arm with or without a stitch regulator - I can suggest the HQ 16. I want one, I just can't justify $4.2K for a machine that only quilts. Maybe someday.

    Oh ... grandson is still quite happy to be warm and cozy in the womb and just cannot be bothered to be introduced to the world. We're just hoping that he makes an appearance before hubby has to come home

    I also love chocolate.. Peanut Butter cups (my all time fav candy), butterfingers, M&Ms, heath, Dove, laffy taffy, jolly ranchers, saltwater taffy, after dinner mints, andes mints.. freaking A I just love sweets. If it's not black licorice, and not coconut, send it to me. I will eat it. Ok I don't like peach jolly ranchers or most peach artificial flavored things, but I love peaches.. other than that.. I'm good.. just send it to me. all of it..

    I worked on my secret pal projects.. mostly done.. and immemother's block.. now I need to work on math *cry* I would rather be doing OTHER things..

    Now that is cute Anastasia. And send me the coconut and licorice that she hates cause I LOVE those candies.. we would do well at a candy bar at say a wedding you could take one end of the candy bar and me the other and we would both be very happy..

    finished a block today for Straley (think that is diamonds) and cutting now a block for the kitties I love that fabric way to cute, says dont cut me cut that otherstuff! honest it wants to be the every other block 12" square just itself and maybe some cute blue and cream/brown blender ohio stars or something in between.. yeah that is what it says. Its not what i am making however lol not my quilt shooteroonie. I like this fabric it will be fun to see what comes out of it.. those eyes are oh so precious on the kittens ..

    At my last job, they regularly threw employee parties, and at least two of them there were candy bar/buffet things. Was pretty cool. I miss that company a lot. Don't miss the job one iota but miss the company.

    Tomorrow I'll hopefully post the last thing I'm making for my secret pal. Then I can also work on the last thing I'm making for my secret SANTA. And I really need to get to work on the ornaments. slacker I am. have to get these things off my table first so I have crafty room. Oh and math.. omg the math.. crap.. have to do that tomorrow, tried to do it today, read a paragraph.. gave up.

    Job fair on tuesday. Wish me luck.

    One of the guilty parties is me ... between everything else that was going on I just wasn't able to find a spare 5 minutes to fold it, wrap it and address it. Hopeing I can get it done tomorrow, if not Tuesday as I just found out from my Receptionist that Monday is a government holiday.

    It will come!!!
