    Anastasia, darlin' how absolutely fabulous. I didnt bribe my postal workers with cookies, um there was this great cake I once saw and I may have accidentally invited them to your home for a piece or six..
    the reason the mail box key is missing is there are only crumbs left of your cake and the workers didnt know how to tellyou goofy girl. good to know your box is now fixed even if you cant use it

    and me receiving more envelopes and once again forgetting who sent them to me, I did get a lovely from Immemother what a great stamp that is (check yours out if you havent already) and one from Canada came but truthfully not sure if it was this group or another. I know I marked it off my list so if your worried just ask me and I will double check. I will get to yours immemother two blocks from now if that is ok, I have pulled a couple envelopes from the diamond box to work on then yours.. this is getting easier which suprises me. And my seams are getting better. I put that blue tape on the 1/4 inch line, put the needle to the right and the tape sorta keeps me from pushing it too far to the right even accidentally (like you can feel it bump the edge of your fabric) and the seams are now consistant. If anything i end up with a smidgen to trim not try to find. Phew. Well I love coming here to see what everyone is up to. It is one of the real high lights of my day and I wanted to thank you guys. This project too. keeps me on track thinking which is terrifically important too. I cant afford you so dont even think of sending me a bill. Pro bono you all work pro bono on this case ok?

    turn out the lights, the partys over... I am so tired, I m going toooo floppp. unplug the iron, unplug the machine.. tuck in the chair and call adieu.. there your song for the evening. night ya' all.
    Linda
    Here today... why what a lucky bunch we are.

    I have had a bumper from nearly day one and I freaking love that thing. Even when it tries to rip pins out for me.

    Morning Rubietts how goes it today? its a SEWING DAY yippee no grocery shopping, minimal picking up.. just sewing.. I love days like this. I think your block by the way Anastasia is very pretty there with the paper piecing. I just was lent that video by Carol Doak on paper piecing and will have to actually watch it (makes learning so much easier). I have found so many blocks that are great but it looks so hard.. I had key word this huge roll of freezer paper to do the paper work out of but with fishing being so good here its history. Freezer full of darned trout but no paper for sewing. Thats just plum wrong. I will have to stop that Here Fishy fishy song (where can you be?) ok here it goes here fishy fishy fishy where can you be here fishy fishy come home with me.. and they do.

    ok no more. I will put on my dean martin cd and drive the neighbors nuts. A good way to get the morning started for real. ciao rubietts. .post your pics post your pics I want to see them!!!

    Ha ha ha!! Sounds like me!! I loathe my neighbors to the north ... I think they're both Bi-Polar or something because they are seriously whacko. One second in-your-face yelling and screaming, the next day "hi neighbor!!". He calls himself "Elvis" - seriously!! He introduces himself as "Hi, I'm Elvis - Elvis Presley". He likes to play Elvis and Country music. I hate both.

    So yesterday he was working in his garden and I took the *opportunity* to introduce his ears to some other "country" tunes ... Les Charbonias (French Canadian), Salif Keita (French African), Andrea Bocelli (Italian), Sigur Ros (Icelandic). hee hee hee ...

    Raining today so I'm in the sewing room allllllll day (taking a lunch break).

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

    Moonwork ... finished your block today. I'm bursting with pride on this one - I placed my ruler on the center and all the lines matched! I mean ALL the lines matched - vertical, horizontal and diagonal. I've never done THAT before - and I had to modify this PP block. I seriously impressed myself. Will mail it Monday.

    OK ... on to the next block. Who's up next?????

    GOod job! That's how I feel about the one I made last night for Jacquie but it wasn't paper pieced. It was adapted from a smaller block and well I had some cutting problems but overall I love the darned thing and hate to see it go home.

    You sound like my kind of lady. I do that to my neighbors from time to time. My musical choices are rougher though like Staind, Metallica, Seether, Arch Enemy and any other hard rock I can find. The neighbors to the west of us complained to our homeowner association that our dog barked all day. Well duhhh your standing next to her fence. Move and she won't bark. I told the homeowners association to bring it on. Guess what they moved. I like our neighbors to the east of us. We are both Oregon Duck fans. As for anyone else they aren't friendly so I just ignore them. My neighbor to the east loves that I love to mess with people because his wife won't let him. I say Lets play. LOL

    feel free to jump in my time portal with the f8's which are coming through. we're still in winter, but days are an average of 20.

    Froggie Fabric

    I apologize for any confusion my notes have caused. What I have is Froggie Fabric:

    Name:  My Frog Fabric 001.JPG
Views: 191
Size:  1.01 MB

    I ran out of my froggies and I mailed out the matching fabrics I had for the rest. I bought all the froggies my lqs had in stock. Therefore I sent out green, blue, and purple fabric that matched the froggie fabric.
    Now I realize I should have just sent half froggie and half the matching colors. Sorry for all the confusion.

    Just make a nine patch if you want and I will put it together as best I can when I get it back.

    yeah! it will be my first!!! Can't wait to see it (actually I *can* wait since you already offered to show me ahead of time I exhibited an incredible amount of will power and declined. Well so much for will power - I ate a candy bar instead!!).

    Charlotte Marie...I got the green and understood your note...I figured the froggy was your main fabric and I could do/use any other colors in it with the green so it would coordinate...clear as pond water to me I got some super cute lily pads in mind...

    Yours is done and will be mailed Monday!!

    OK - that's two completed blocks. I will be taking at least a few days off from the Boom Group - I need to get back to work on the baby quilt. Daughter reminded me that grandson is due to make an appearance in only 5 weeks and I have a boat load of applique yet to do let alone quilt the darn thing.

    OK ... back in the sewing room to machine down a froggy so I can take it to work with me to do the hand stitching.

    Yea I need to put another border on my baby quilt and sandwich it and get it to my mom in a few days so she can hand quilt it (she's fast, and i am learning) cause the baby it's for is gonna pop any time. She's on bedrest for pre-eclampsia so you know.. could really come any time.. but due in about a month. but I appeased her with cake to buy me some time. I have some class stuff all this week so will have to maybe slow down on some of these but I'm 4 down so far good for me cause I have an attention span of a gnat.
