    Have finally gotten the adult blocks in wrap, note wrapped, envelopes all addressed and double taped. Did however forget my name label inside the wrap - but note says who i am and also on envelope.
    Tomorrow the following will go out:
    Abbys Mom, Elisabrat, Gaijin, jaydee3, Lestrong601, moonwork42029,OKDarla, Roseisrish and urgodschild.

    Have worked on my curves, and the dreaded "scant" 1/4". I still don't get it. When I learned to sew it was always 5/8". Then wen I went into quilting it was 1/4". now it is a scant 1/4"/ WHY??? I want my quilts to hold up and if you don't do alot of top quilting then the seams will loosen easier.
    Just needed to vent - but would really like to know why it is so little allowance.

    Thanks, Moonwork, that is definitely my fabric. I have no doubt that Quiltingmommy is too organized to be making a mistake (her system is foolproof!) so I must have had a mind-melting day somewhere. But honestly, I don't recognize the black/spots fabric! Does this mean my stash is finally in control and I am just a pawn in it's hands? I must defend myself from it and hide the scissors. Now where did that rotary cutter go....
    May your blessings be many, your troubles few and your fabric stash endless!

    I could swear I say that fabric when I was lurking in one of the other Booms. Are you in more than one Boom?

    I sent adults out in two different mailings so far. The first mailing was quite some time ago. I got acknowledgement from Joanelizbay and travelinggrandma but still waiting on RoseIrish. Rose if you don't have your adult, please pm me and let me know. I'll check to see if I have enough material to make another one.

    The second mailing went out Monday a week ago. There were 11 adults. I got confirmation from OldCatLady, moonrise and moonwork42049. The other 8 are missing in action. If you received an adult and your name isn't here, please let me know you have it. If you already posted and I missed it, I'm sorry :-(

    The kids walk the adults to the mailbox as I finish them now so they will be coming in dribbles. Good exercise here in the desert.

    Oh my gosh. What is the second block called? I LOOOOOOOVE it. I have the perfect fabrics to do a whole quilt with it.

    Received F8's from: jaydee3 and dottiedodge.

    Awaiting F8's from: girlscouts1, lovngrandma, Mosher92, Tracibug

    Received two gorgeous blocks from jaydee3 and phannie1. Love them both!

    Thanks for the note, Anna! Both DH and I have lived in this area our entire lives. We didn't have any direct damage from the tornado. It really tore Ringgold up, though. We live about 3 miles from where it first touched down. We were lucky. I was on the phone with DH when it went over, and was looking out the front door. There was some CRAZY lightning and thunder going on, so I quickly moved into the hall. Even the air had an eerie, foreboding feel to it. I logged onto Facebook a few minutes after the crazy lightning stopped, and people were posting that downtown Ringgold was devastated from a tornado. It was almost dark when the tornado went through, but the photos started coming in early the next morning. The damage was unbelievable. Eight people were killed. It's a miracle there weren't more fatalities than there were, though. Here's a video someone made of the tornado passing over: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zZSCo4PW0yk I saved all the pictures people posted on Facebook. I'll put them on a blog at some point.

    Thank you everyone for the well wishes and prayers. They are much appreciated and welcomed. I am sure all will be wonderful on Thursday-I have a fabulous neurosurgeon!!!

    WOW!! If you could do that with that fabric I can't wait to see what you do with the lingerie. Love my blocks and the colors in her outfit are so perfect. Thank you so very much!

    I just wanted to post a quick reminder to please be careful when taking photos of blocks and uploading that they do not include anyone's name and address anywhere in the photo
    Hugs

    PS I know I owe an update I am just trying to pull everything together. I am taking classes right now so I am trying to get ahead on work so I don't fall behind. I did open my envelopes this weekend though and I have some AMAZING blocks and I absolutely LOVE them all! Thank you everyone. You all rise to the challenge of my fabrics lol

    Okay, you may NOT confuse me....who is french fry queen???? You are not on my list

    If you talking about the square in a square with star points, it is called Noon Star

    Lovingizabella, are my blocks coming up with names? I did file them that way, but didn't think they would upload that way, if so, I can change the way I do them, although I have already downloaded all but the last three I think.

    No, just in one boom. I will go lurk on other boom boards and see if I can see any pictures with this fabric. Thanks

    "others" from anywhere on the site come and visit the boom links to get ideas and see all the wonderful blocks floating around. She's a regular on the board and seems to really like your block (for good reason ). Don't be surprised or confused at seeing "others" make comments as we often have stalkers.

    POST OFFICE confusion or maybe a solution. Ok I had to go to the post office for international mailing. So the lady feels the envelop and says well it has fabric so it has to go as a package for over $6. I said no I don't think so, I have mailed these all along and it has never cost me that much. So the gal was real nice and asked the clerk next to her and she said no it goes with just the surcharge so it was only the regular price $1.10. So I asked her why is it different for every post office and even clerks????? She said it has to do with the machines. If the flimsy envelope with material in it does not go through the machine just right.....it cost more money. So they try to catch it before it screws up the machine I guess. Now the other day I got a grown up block from someone who put in a blank piece of thin cardboard with the square. No problem I asked my son about it and he gets mail with thin cards sent to him and they are always surrounded by thin pieces of cardboard so that they will go through the machines. So I am going to try this. I buy from teh comic store.........100 thin cardboard things that I use to wrap my material on to organize it on my book shelf. So I am going to try those and see if that works. Oh these things cost me $8.00/ 100. I was thinking that if it was sent out to others that you could collect them and reuse them on another one that you send out. Maybe that is the solution. ????

    Sorry for the confusion! I'm creeping over from the Atlantic group to check out everyone's blocks. I love seeing what everyone comes up with. It's amazing that we can all take the same fabric and each do something so different with it.
