    F8 in an envelope for TLambing

    I've got another Possum story for all of you ... you know how much I like those stinking varmits.

    Neighbor and I were tearing down an old large (12x12) shed in the back. We worked all morning, knocked out all the slatted siding, removed windows and door, pushed until the whole frame and roof went down, tore up roof into burnable pieces, salvaged some of the 2x4 lumber - burned remainder ... all that remained was the flooring. The shed sat on concrete footing which was raised by joists then floored over. We were trying to remove the plywood from the joists by using a 2x4 as a pry and lifting the plywood up and smacking the joist down with a sledge hammer. My neighbor had the job of lifting, I had the job of smacking the joist with the sledge. We were half way through and he inserted the 2x4 under the flooring and felt it "give" ... other the other end came a POSSUM!! He must have poked it in the butt with the 2x4!!

    Well ... I went running after said Possum with my sledge hammer raised in the air and screaming a war cry!! Chased him into the neighbors yard ... NOT the neighbor I like ... the other one Let HIM deal with the Possum!! Although if I know him, he's probably got several recipe's for it. Blech.

    So ... I can scratch "Chase Possum with sledge hammer" off my bucket list

    I'd have to get the Possum back and that's just not going to happen

    Finished ANOTHER block today ... I'm on a roll.

    You can peek if you want to - it's in my Album.

    This one is for Elisabrat. She wanted girly ... you don't get more girly than this one. I even added eyelet cause you were putting it on your quilt. Hope you like it.

    Seriously ... normally I am not a fan of this block, but I'm in LOVE with this one! I think it's my favorite block I made for this group so far.

    Edited to add: Elisabrat - the block is well oversized. I left it that way so you can choose how to center it.

    Block from Jan

    This is the first block I received...it is so pretty, I am anxious to see more, but I guess I better SEND more. I have my sewing room all torn apart, I have so much fabric and not enough time. I am going to list some on ebay in hopes it will find new homes. Thanks for looking

    2 more blocks are heading home tomorrow. That only leaves 1 more for me to send home and it's a side swap.

    ctmhjenn and tlambing should be watching their mail for a couple squishies ... woo hoo!


    I know we have a lot of time left but if you could let me know if my list is correct I'd appreciate it.

    Mailed -- to everyone as of tomorrow

    Received -- still waiting for blocks from only these:
    ctmhjenn
    immemother
    Jacquie
    OkDarla
    savannahrandons
    tlambing

    If you don't think you have received your block from me, please check my other thread to see what block I mailed to you just to double check and then let me know what you'd like to do. I do not have any fabrics leftover from mailing the blocks...I use every crumb if possible.

    If you have mailed your block to me and are on the list of ones I haven't received, please post a picture of the block you sent to me so I can double check my blocks.

    Thanks y'all for all the fun so far.

    Hi All, I am still working on my longarm, lots of people want their quilts done NOW...so I have 2 more to go, and I am caught up...well, for them...not for ME. I have two large bins of tops I have made and not quilted, so they will be getting done. I do plan on cutting out two blocks tomorrow, and maybe I will get to three. We will see where I get. Thank you all for being patient. I am generally ahead of the game, this time I am not. Take care and do a rain dance for us. We are quite dry.

    don't sweat it ... I've still got a pile of blocks to finish as well. But we still have lots of time.
