    Nothing in the mail today here either. Hope everyone has their F8's in the mail. If you haven't done so, please mail your fabric out so those of us that want to get them done and home to you can do so. Put a friends quilt on the table so I can get it quilted for her and worked on some blocks for a quilt I'm making.

    I didnt make it out to mail blocks home today.. too much snow and as I am a gimp I need a bunch of assistance getting down stairs and across the yard to the car. Tomorrow I have to go out so I will mail! and pick up mail! and work on a couple more blocks while I am at it. I will update after the mail pick up who is still missing in receivables and what has come home! yahooo. Last year I was half way done with fifty blocks by this time. I am taking it a bit slower and trying to give everything quality time. I think its working

    April and Izabella your block is going to leave here tomorrow also! I went through every single box I had nothing matched. I finally found a small piece of tea stained fabric I made last year for another tough block to match. I think its spot on and I did set the fabric wash and dry it so the color is good to go. phew. I hope your little angel likes it.

    I'm hoping to mail by early next week... stick with me, I was almost caught up on my overcommitments and then the landlord called and asked if he could have an appraiser come do a walkthru for his refinance. WTH... Doesn't he know I don't have time to CLEAN!?!?!?

    Gaijin, did you mail your F8 to me in Missouri? Still dont have it and thought you mailed all yours pretty early!! No mail at all today but we have almost 10 inches of snow so probably no mail man either! LOL. Made it home with hardly any problem but got stuck half in my driveway, half in road..hope my nephew comes by soon to dig me out!

    I got 6 blocks finished this week: ELisabrat, Phannie, Travelinggramma, Cuppy, RoseySue & Moonrise

    I just finished updating my photo album in my profile.

    That makes 19/35 done: 54%

    There are still 9 of you who haven't got my F8's yet. I am hoping to get these out in the next week or so. Please be a little patient. After all, I am sure that you cannot be completely finished and just waiting to do your last block, mine.

    Trying to figure out how to make a block when the person only sent me a 10 X 15 inch material. Not 11 X 18 or 9 X 22 but 10 X 15. I keep coming up short on all the patterns I have selected so I think that I will have to make up my own pattern so that I can make it fit. This one really has me stumped.

    I had one that was small, too. I made it work, but had to do some "creative piecing". Maybe she was running low on fabric, and had to cut the F8s smaller. It worked out in the end, though.

    Today's mail had this lovely block in it! It's from Navarre2011, and I love it! Thanks so much!

    Dang jaba...

    I wish I had more time to sew but feel good to get 3 - 4 done in a whole week. Being down in my back / neck didn't help any either.

    received my first grown up block today from moonrise. what a fabulous block! Your fabric was a perfect choice with mine. Love the combination. I am glad I chose neutrals. Thank you. I will be going to small community quilt show this weekend, And the beach. It will be 85 this Saturday, 83 tomorrow.

    When in short supply try a 4-patch or 9 patch design. You could easily get 4--4.5" blocks out of that material. Pair it with 5 other blocks of different colors and you have a nine-patch-try a shoo-fly design. You have more flexibility with a 4-patch design as each block would be 3.5". Try Arrowhead puzzle on quilterscache.com

    Please PM me if I was the one who shorted people's F8s. I don't think so, but would like to know if I did.

    I received my first block today from Lestrong. Isn't it beautiful? Thank you!

    moonwork I am shooting for four a week. I don't seem to have the energy to do more. I am working on a full quilt with a deadline, four tablerunners, and now a forgotten seasonal thingy for my daughter (how did I blow that one?..memory blip) and only 9 blocks done so far. soon as the runners get out of the house.. these things will be flying home. did them in 6 weeks last time. not so fast this round I am thinking but surely well before the finish timeline. today is slam bam sewing finish work. I am not so much into the finish stuff. Love making blocks! hate quilting quilts. even little ones.

    Dear Dad: I loved your picture. I think your absolutely adorable and I could just grab you and take you home! I haven't had a father since I was 18. I think I could use a dose of "dad" time. Please?? Can I adopt you? Sincerely, your not bratty soon to be daughter (You guys tell him and I will get sooo mad at you!).
