    Finished a block for OKDarla today ... it's *different* because I had to re-engineer it after I found the cutting instructions were wrong (which I found out AFTER I cut it). I had it re-engineered correctly - but then I had a blonde moment and whacked off stuff that I needed. In the end ... it's different ... but it's symmetrical, square, and 12.5" so I'm calling it done

    Will upload a pic to my albums either later tonight or tomorrow. I've got to go to a birthday party now.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    WAIT A MINUTE GIRLY you said you were having a birthday WEEK RIGHT?? so shush up and take the birthday wishes we can do them daily for you honest happy birthday to you.. happy.. sucks being you getting me to sing daily..
    and happy birthday to the new baby boy! I am sooo sorry to hear about the long hard labor. My son was backwards and that was no easy thing at all then he decided to comeout facing the wrong way a day of labor for me not three. YIKES that would cure me from having had more for sure. poor momma hope she gets lots of love and care. she has to be wiped.

    the ornaments I will take photos of what I have done so far which is almost zip. My table and counter a disaster full of things I can add to them. Yesterday I ended up taking TWO three hour naps after dialysis. so a wash on working but today will make a ton and post a pic. I say a ton hope to get at least 10 done. lol maybe 20 would be the goal. because I have to finish a couple quilty projects too. I NEED MORE ORNAMENTS IF ANYONE WANTS TO HELP let me know its for the Senior tree if you didnt catch the post earlier.

    I had such a blast making your ornaments. I am excited to see everyones finished results whether you make tablemats, a wall hanging or a quilt with them.. show your lay outs for us to see. I will take a photo later too as I have a dozen to lay out. Pretty darned great getting them back so fast. You ladies are zoom zoom zoom FAST.

    Finished another block today for BuddysMom.

    Will get pictures of this and the block I finished for OKDarla later today. Working on another block at the moment (not sure which member it is, it's the fabric with the puppies).

    *yawn* goodness.. Math homework.. and hoooman interactions.. So tiring. Went oot and aboot yesterday, went oot and aboot today. Got family coming tomorrow (oh crud I gotta clean still!) then... no more hoomans for awhile. need to decompress. hehe.

    Today.. was mini spa day.. nails, hair, unruly bushbaby eyebrows, and olive garden.. My friend gave me a card that has a singing cactus fridge magnet, it sings some tequila song is awesome.

    Haven't gotten any progress on any more blocks but do have a good majority of a quilt top sewn together. woo. Have to put that on hold too until after I write my paper due on wed. bleh. I really don't know why this set of classes is kickin my butt.

    Its not kicking our Butt girl its just challenging your talents. WE know your talented so its time you pull up those pretty little britches and just get to it. Done and behind you wouldnt that be lovely? a tequila magnet huh? oh dear it isnt an inspiration magnet ? like listen to me and well one more shot of cuervo.. gotta love that pal. And ok phonished blocks and oot and aboot.. did I miss the cocktail round? lol you guys are so goofy!

    those blocks nygal are very pretty. you sent out several different fabrics I see. Love the red ones. hey is one of them a cat in a kimono or is itme with horrible eyesite.. bottom right pic cream fabric with it? someone with eyesite is it or what is it? I gotta know now as well cats in kimonos would be great to have..

    I want all of you to know I made twenty ornaments today and got busted. watching paint dry. I kid you not I was outside painted one coat figured sit in a chair wait for it to dry only takes like 2 or three minutes, so I wait, spray the pine cones one more time lean over to check how they look fine.. figure it felt good leaning over so I sit like that relaxing my back and zoom a golf cart comes flying into the driveway.. what the heck? its my pal Cecil who is 85. He had driven by saw me leaning like that and turned around and came quick as a cricket over to see if I was ok. I said uh yeah. He says well what are you doing? I had scared him.. I said without thinking.. watching paint dry. lol I was too but sheesh dont say it outload you sure get goofy looks. I said no it had to dry first before i could coat it a third time and add glitter he still looked at me like I was nuts and said well ok then and left. I felt pretty dumb. I guess I hadnt said it well. but hey it does only take a couple minutes on pine cones if your ever wondering. three coats they look lovely and the glitter stuck wonderfully lol. last year I stupidly used floral spray glue. Little did I know it doesnt dry it stays tacky. I had glittered tacky ornaments up and they drove me bonkers. I gifted them to another person this last january. No more sticky pinecones for me. yikes. just in case you know like you were going to glitter some. lol what a mess. think I will stick more to sewing. Apparently I am better at it.

    Are you.... did you just.... how dare you... tell me to put on my big girl britches.. hehehehe. Yes.. it's a cat in a kimono. Doing ninja things.

    Since I"m from Minnesota.. most people say I don't have an accent but then every once in awhile.. this thing happens.. I don't know what it is... and it's only those two words.. but I suddenly sound Canadian.. and APPARENTLY.. that's close enough to be considered a Minnesotan accent. Kinda like that movie Fargo.. haven't met anyone in MN that talks like that.. but everyone thinks we do now. But my out and about's come out REALLLY close to oot and aboot. it's worse on my abouts. hehe.

    Well.. I got one ornament finished or your tree mrs brat. I even complied with colors. Mostly cause I actually had red and thought what I had was purple.. but it was red sure enough. Yep.. can't cut a curved line, can't cut a straight line, can't sew a straight line, definitely can't sew a curved line, can't do anything spacial-ly equal. I stopped trying. also.. my flower.. well.. one petal is on steroids, one is all teeny. Bleh. I ripped out the white heart blanket stitch about 6 times before I remembered how to do it right. Now.. do I want to make more of these...

    They look pretty cute there missy, you'll make more. I got 22 sewn yesterday but have to stuff them today. Not going to sew the opening shut, gonna' glue it. After all, Brat said eyes weren't that good so they'll look okay I think and it's only an inch of glue on 1 end. Better get busy so I can mail them.
