    Yea, I am glad one of mine hit its mark ! That was fast since I sent them out Saturday morning.

    Ok. I got a box full of squishes. I got Immemother, Jacquie, Lovingizabella, and Buddy's Mom.

    It was pouring rain at lunch so I did not get the the post office with my Fat 8s but they will get there tomorrow.

    I am up stairs having fun...

    sorry you don't have any squishies yet...hoping they get there soon. I have the bestest matches for your fabric...it was sooo dang cool when I opened yours and walked right to my stash and pulled out a jelly roll that looks like it could have been made just for you.

    BTW, I love your kitty on a leash. My cats have always acted like a leash/harness weighed 10 tons when you put them on...they lower their stomachs to the ground or flop like a hooked fish. Yours appears to be quite pleased with his surroundings.

    I love your dad and his quilting help. Bless him. I would like to borrow him. He can have the spare room as long as he likes.. I love to cook (bribery here just tell me what he likes its his)..

    Anastasia WOWSA only since May? you are one heck of a smart cookie my dear. I think its amazing. I imagine your a go getter in all that you do and that you do it well too. Hats off to you kiddo. Even if your a miser with your cake.

    I received an envelope from Buddys mom and from Scottland today. yippee hip hip horay and all that stuff. Oh one from the last name Straley not sure if that is this group or Diamonds so I am posting in both. ok thats this post.

    Ok confessions post. I had a very bad sewing day yesterday, the kind that one gets tears over. I worked hard cut things correctly (this is hard work guys really it is) and sewed dilegently. Scant 1/4 inch. Finished it. Looked ok measured perfectly. Took photo looked at photo. ITS NOT GOT THE POINTS IT NEEDS. I look hard and look hard and know if I take in those seams to 1/4 inch I will have points. I take the whole thing apart. Restitch and sure enough the block is golden. Golden 12". So what to do here: do I A) add a stupid bony edge strip to the sides and be happy (not going to be happy) B) do I buy more of that fabric as it was not a piece that can be reused much at all and start from scratch. I am not going to not have a good block. Trouble is I have only four 4" pieces left otherwise to work with and that is totally lame unless I buy more fabric. What would you do? super sad. whole thing is super sad.

    well I totally butchered Nexxus's black so I have to get more.. I tried ripping it apart and putting it back together but that didn't work and I also don't like to add little borders but I had to with my boat one because well.. I cut improperly and there wasn't any spare to fix.. so it has a couple of those annoying little seams. Since you can find the fabric that you need... in my shoes, because i'm a perfectionist, I would get more.. If you couldn't, I'd say go with the tiny border.

    So I completed about 1/2 of Moonwork's block. First time I ever did this type of thing. I did part of it by hand and part of it by machine because I got tired of doing it by hand, and well there's a tiny little.. not quite a pucker, not quite a fold, not sure what to call it.. when I got to the last bit.. I'm gonna leave it there. It's gonna be the add the character flaw haha. Freaking ladybugs everywhere I tell ya... taking over the place.

    He does love it, in fact he often demands it. it did take me a little while to train him on it, but now when i pick up the lead he leans against the door and over the harness goes, he thinks he's a dog! he loves when i garden because on goes his lead and he gets to roll around in the soil, not the best thing for a white cat, but it makes him so happy.

    anastasia, me too tons of those critters all over the darned sewing machine, then the coffee table.. I think I will have to coral them into an envelope tomorrow for a visit home. Enough is enough! I will make two blocks I think. did one very safe worked great, like it reminds me of two flowers goofy things.. and the next will be who knows something. I thank you for telling me your story Anastasia dear. it made me not feel so incredibly stupid .. which I know I am not.. just not processing crud and its so tough because i know I could before. stop whipping myself. Getting that fabric. its nicer to know its done right. And even the Amish do not make perfect quilts. I read here in the Amish swap that interviewed an Amish woman was asked if they put a mistake in purposely like its been told and she said only God is perfect. We dont add mistakes on purpose they just happen ... I like that but boy its nice to be closer to perfect I can tell you than wally the walrus bad.
    Immemother do you put sunscreen on your cats ears/nose before he goes out? white cats are so prone to skin cancer especially in those areas.. just a thought.. I had a cat rescue for several years and that sure was an issue with some of the cats that we brought in. I could never ever have put a leash on my cats. That low to the ground airplane thing, like stated earlier here they gain 10 lbs instant presto and magically are stuck belly to the ground and not moving. No way uh uh. Your lucky. I would love to take mine on short ventures but think then that door would be a target they are way faster than I am..now they just sit two feet back and wait for me to enter or leave. If they tasted that fresh dirt oh man..

    Well, if it's my block simple - make it a 9" block

    I think I'm going to start looking at 13" blocks and try to find some that can be trimmed down to 12.5" safely

    wouldnt that be lovely as all heck. I thought, do crazy quilt blocks lol.. they tend to go best with other crazy quilt blocks however shoot.. then log cabins.. anything with a base that is clearly marked like follow this line duh.. lol. I think however those thirteen inch blocks are highly ellusive. I am going to go collage thats it! cut and dump where ever it lands tada! oh shoot not going to hold up well under any usage or washing.. next plan..

    go slower. egad. snails slow down would you I am coming I am coming! that slow..

    Received F8 from NYGal. Have you decided what colors you want us to use, I didn't get any instructions with it. I know you were considering red and folks kinda talked you out of it - but I don't remember if any conclusion was reached.

    No I didn't make a decision. I say use a color that is in the fabric and that will be fine. Thanks for asking!!

    I did two more blocks tonight. Then I opened four more of the envelopes to audition from my stash what will work for each. I forget at the moment who's is who's but I love the peacock feather one!!! I have fabrics that will be perfect for it in my stash and I also loved the cute Halloween print. I have fabrics for that too. I'm done sewing for the day.

    nygal - I received your pretty fabric and just looked at the other posts. Since the fabric I got is blue on blue - is that what you want - just blues?
