    I am hoping to finish my ufo's this next month. I have six of them just need putting together. phew! Everytime I think ok I have all my blocks back another shows up. Thank you Happylab for the block I received. I sent a few side swaps out so I forget how many I should have lol. I will wait another couple weeks then start on the finish work. should make some very pretty quilts. I love what you did with the birds and brown fabric I sent and my Christmas blocks from another swap are coming in so cute too. think those will be table runners. Great swap all in all.

    I found a stack of envelopes with f8s in them. I thought I had sent everything out! Oops! I plan on working on these this weekend (my first free weekend since school started in August!).

    Unhappy BIG OOops!!!

    I have received 3 more blocks... I don't have the names with me right now, but thank you just the same. I will post names and photos as soon as I can. I am borrowing time on this computer....

    What do "laptop computer" and "red cool aid" have in common and shouldn't?


    Yup it was painful to see.... I probably won't be online every day until after next weekend. Fortunately our computer whiz guy is coming for a visit this weekend. For now, my computer is unplugged, battery out, and turned upside down so even more red liquid can stream out.


    better luck next time kiddos...


    hugs, Jupiter

    glad you found those fabrics.. that will make some very happy people I think good job!

    I have put mine in piles to make runners and wall hangings. great and easy match ups. thank you for that! I will now add red to the edges and they will all pull together wonderful on the Christmas blocks and oh the birds! those will get a bright green edging and they too will be super together. sincerely this is the best boom I have been in. I truly appreciate everyone reading my special requests as to color and actually using them. High five! sometimes I think its easy to not read the whole blurb but you guys rock and did it.

    Now something which might be helpful to some of the block makers here. If you don't have a quarter inch foot for your sewing machine you might seriously consider one. Mine was 15.00 not bad. and it made it terrifically easier for me to make accurate blocks within at worst 1/8th an inch off.. you have to push the fabric against the foot so it stays accurate at all times. Bonus? it makes your 12.5 inch blocks so much easier to make. If you cut things with a ruler and a rolling blade you should get perfect pieces. its the 1/4 that it seems gets everyone. I used a piece of painters tape before but it worked as good as my eyes. not always accurate. Also a black sharpie marking exactly where you want that edge to be when your sewing the pieces together is also helpful just mark your machine. I had blocks come in that were 12" and some 13. One was even 13.5 I hope next round everyone will be able to finish up right at 12.5. it will please you trust me and it will thrill your partner. everyone wins!

    Could you please share this with the other groups for me? April is in ICU and will need another operation in the next couple of days. She also has an infection. Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers!

    Hello Everyone. I am posting this for LovingIzabella as she has suffered a setback with her shunt. She is currently in the hospital and doesn't know when she will be home. She will post again once she is home, in the mean time if there are any problems please feel free to email me. I will do my best to help find a solution. I hope everyone is on the downward slope of there sewing as the deadline I believe is Nov 10th. Again if you have any problems please drop me an email. Thank You, Melinda

    thanks Melinda I think this group is pretty together. We talk with each other and seem to solve things phew by our own. My prayers to April. Its a set back but she will be fine. I think we are sending blocks to her? maybe a card tree would be nice also.. send her a card to let her know we are thinking of her. I taped all my cards on my wall so I could see them and it kept me smiling .. hospitals are pretty boring. we could liven things up

    We can send her cards, but since she is in ICU, she can 't hang anything until she ' moved! They might get mad at us!

    nah they let you have cards but no balloons, I lived there for three weeks. usually there is a shelf or a wall that things can be taped up on. just a thought. people who are allowed into her room usually only family could bring them to show her and with luck she will be out of there in no time. they treat you pretty darned good in those places. takes a special type of nurse to work with you there. My card goes in the mail today

    I received a block from Universal City TX. I think this is from missgigglewings. There was no board name on the block or envelope and the return address is different from my list. The block is great. Thank you.

    I still have not received a F8 from queenof2802. I have seen that some others have received fabric from her. I hope mine is not lost. I have tried to contact her on here and by pm but get no response. I hope all is well with her.
    All my other blocks have been returned to their home. If you haven't gotten yours please let me know.

    I am still watching for finished blocks from happylab and AnneMixon.

    I have really enjoyed this swap and hope to join the next Boom. It is amazing how many talented quilters we have here and I really appreciate all of you. Thanks.

    queen of 2802 seems to be missing a lot on the board but I do know she came through with a runner for me a couple months back.. it was late but she followed through. I think she has some bronchitis/pneumonia issues and maybe it came back.. I would say.. if your waiting to make something for your quilt for that one block I wouldn't wait. you can always use it in another project later on .. I have faith she will send.. . eventually.

    Update: I finished and mailed all blocks except "queenof2802", whose f8 I never received. I am waiting for blocks from Allikat110, AnneMixon, goldendog55, and happylab. I also just mailed a block for a side swap with Debra Poland. Please let me know if I made a mistake in any way.

    Hello everyone,
    Yes I know I have been MIA Thank you Melinda for trying to help anyone who needed it and thanks for the updates to the groups.
    I ended up with a massive infection in my shunt which almost caused me to loose my eyesight in my right eye. I was taken by ambulance to my local ER on October 5 and then transported out to my neurosurgeon in CT. I spent a week in ICU on very high dose antibiotics. They removed my old VP shunt on a Wednesday once I had been on the antibiotics for 3 days and then put a new one in on Friday with anti-microbial tubing so hopefully this does not happen again. I just returned to work on the 24th. I have some pain still from the tubing as it is larger than the normal tubing and it takes some getting used to Thankfully though my neurosurgeon saved my eyesight by putting in an LP drain bedside and draining the infected CSF and relieving the increased pressure on my optic nerves. I am headache free now and I can see. My right eye is still a little weak but it is getting there
    Due to some rows I am unable to locate from a row robin I was in (I put them up for Hurricane Sandy and then had 5 brain surgeries so I can't get through all of the containers ) I have been informed I am no longer allowed to host swaps so sadly this will be the last Boomerang swap unless someone wants to host it until I am able to find the rows and get them home to their rightful owner (which I will do ). If anyone wants to please let me know, I hate to see this swap end because of my shortfalls.
    Also please remember deadline is coming up soon, hopefully you are all almost done and happy
    Huge Hugs
    April

    april, the most important thing is your out of the woods right now. Your eyesight is saved which is no way a small miracle right? you count on that vision!

    I am also so sorry you will be blocked from hosting until you find those rows. I know you will they are right where you last left them. Get your mom or a friend to help you look. make it a small mission. We would so miss you if you didn't run another swap. I would offer but I get swamped with my own swap.. and this is a big one to run. I would surely lose half of them. I will cross my fingers you can locate them, over the winter and well we will not give up on you until you throw down your own flag. Then we will walk beside you and call you friend until you can come back with us.

    The end is drawing near. I just wanted to thank all of you who sent beautiful blocks. I have not set them together yet because I am still waiting for blocks from AnneMixon and happylab. I have had no communication from them which is very disappointing. I also never received a F8 from queenof2802. I sent her a pm but no response.

    April, Thank you for hosting. I hope your health improves. Hang in there. You are the recipient of lots of prayers.

    I received a beautiful block from happylab. Thanks lots. It will look great in my quilt. I'm sorry I didn't get it posted sooner. We've been at deer camp.
    Thanks again to all who joined this swap and sent such wonderful blocks. You are all so talented.

    Here are three quilts I made with blocks from this group and another, and ones I had leftover from a previous swap. Didn't use all the blocks but appreciate them all. Thank you
    The first two I self-binded with fleece and they will be going to a shelter for abused women with children. The kids will love the colors! Thank you

    I love your quilts. Multi color scrap quilts really appeal to me. I'm sure whoever is lucky enough to receive these quilts will love them. We have such talented people here.
