    I have to agree with the opinions already voiced NYGal. Red varies greatly and you may end up with something that hugely contrasts versus comes together. I would say send your fabric and ask for no red but anything else that goes and then sash and set with a red you buy. It is amazing how this ends up because usually the blocks all pull together in the end quite nicely
    It is okay to not be at the head of the pack Remember slow and steady wins the race.

    Good, I've got lots of gold that should play real nice with some of those fabrics. Not too much red in my stash which as it turns out - is a good thing.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

I dunno what you're talking about.. musta sent it to someone else.. hehe... But here.. have some of my chocolate cake.. (I got a chocolate cake today.. that i can't eat for 2 months til my birthday, so it's in the freezer.. it's a chocolate cake, with chocolate frosting with chocolate chips, then 2nd layer is a brownie, with more frosting and chips, then another chocolate cake layer, and everything frosted and chipped.. want some?)

    Ok ... I've photographed Moonie's lady bugs with the envelope and the note - will keep that in my Rubyboomboom folder on my PC.

    Scoured my stash including scraps and pulled several fabrics that would work. Got lots of tonals and some colors with small white print.

    Perused Quilter's Cache and narrowed it down to about 30 blocks - ha ha ha ha ha!!

    I'm doing what I do with all my quilts ... I lay all the fabric on my cutting table where it can be seen from the hallway as I pass it (it's directly across from the bath, and on my way to the bedroom - so I'm in the hall a LOT). I'll keep looking at it in different lights and wait for the light bulb to go off.

    Now I'm heading out to a neighbors to watch him feed the giant catfish in his pond. Something different.

    Seen it thanks. Everyone should be getting mine in the USA, mailed all Monday, but guess it takes longer going out of this wee little town I call home. Giant catfish, wow, mine just has Koi like 5-6" long maybe 7". Raised them from about 1 1/2" though, so I love it. Not for sure if it's just them or the sound of the water. I need to come back in my second life as a mermaid or something...fish okay if I don't get caught or they can take me home to a pond and baby me. aaahhhh what a life!

    Not a big fan of chicken salad ... unless it's the kind with celery, cranberries, and walnuts!!

    I just checked and my post must have gone to cyberspace! I received Elisabrat's peachy fruit cocktail and have already found some perfect matching fabric - now to find the perfect pattern!
    But first - I will take a piece of the cake - someone must love you very very much to make that......did I mention my birthday is next week....and that I love chocolate????

    Okay ladies,

    I have my fabric washed and envelopes bought. I just have to cut and stuff and address and mail. My plan is to have them in the mail Saturday morning. I am looking forward to getting my first squishy.

    Found out yesterday that I have torn my rotator cuff. been fighting a pain in my shoulder for about 6 months. now I know. Had a cortazone shot put in. The doctor said no "quilting" for 3 weeks but sewing small things was ok. Just not too heavy items. Then we will see what we will do. Bummer.

    I need some chocolate Cake!

    I love these asian fabrics! I have so many idea's. Do you mind applique or would you prefer pieced?
