    Yippee! I ordered a bunch of fabric today for this swap! Here's the "rule" I went by... would I put this fabric in a quilt for my DH or DS? If the answer was "yes", I got it. Hey, you'd be surprised what "fits" for guys!

    I don't have my fabric for this month's swap in the mail yet but I'm already wondering about the next one or two...any ideas or approvals? At one time you mentioned a possibility of a batik swap. I personally would vote for another I SPY and a batik swap. I know you are really busy with other things but just had a few minutes to read what is going on......and ask. Good luck with everything on your plate......

    Ah geez, went to the quilt shop/Brother dealer to pick up a quilt kit....whatever I bought on this trip would be 25% discount. Consequently, I'll be doing the June Swap! Already have the cartoony I Spy fabric. In the past the I Spy squares were 6 inches, is this going to be the same? Please don't think I'm an overachiever because nothing is further from the truth. We are in the process of planning a kitchen-family room make -over so am in the process of packing everything in the family room and many of the seldom used things in the kitchen. This is going to be a lllooonnnggg project. To stay out of the way I'm getting sewing projects lined up. Will lock myself in the sewing room and stuff with rags to keep the dust out.....

    I have my twists all ready to go...for the blocks decided to use my Accuquilt Go that I got for Christmas, as haven't opened it yet (I know, crazy that I haven't....I think I am a lil intimidated...lol). Anyways, went to open it and get it all out. My dh and our ds gave me the Go with the mix and match starter set; with the extra dies and mats purchased there was supposed to be a mat for each die...there turned out to be 2 of the 5x10 mats and no 10x10, which is what I need to cut the 6 1/2" squares!! I did not know there was a "goof" until now because I hadn't taken it all out to use it...what a "doofus" I feel like! So, instead of arguing with the company over it, I ordered the 10x10 mat, it was supposed to be here by today...it did not come in yet.... I started just cutting out the squares the way I always do, with my shape cut ruler, and it does a good job...I am just disappointed that I could not give my Accuquilt a go....oooh theres a little pun...sorry for the lame humor, just trying to put a positive spin on things....
    Anyways, I will for sure have all of my squares and twists in before the deadline...and thanks all for listening to my "whining"...

    Yosamitesa, You are so right!..I knew someone would be along to counteract my "grumpiness"... Good news, tho...the mat came in!! I am fixing to give the Go a "go", there's some more of my lame humor...lol. I have the twists all ready to send, but as I also have a 2 1/2" strip die, I am going to try it, too.
    Have a great week-end!

    Well...I'm on Injury Reserve for a few days. Stupid me...I got a box in today for my new "direct sales" that I'm going to attempt and was so excited I could only find my Gingher scissors. Well, I opened them up and went to cut open the box and sliced my finger open. Good news, those scissors are SHARP...bad news...middle finger is bandaged up... Hugs and love!!! Start getting those packages in.

    OUCH!!!So sorry to hear this but can personally relate to it. Ask me how I know. Next thing is "Never use my GOOD scissors to open a box."!!! That just echos in my head from my Mother saying it to me and me saying it to my sons. Does your new "direct sales" endeavor involve fabric?

    Heal quickly....

    Yikes! I hope you heal quickly!! I totally understand that excited feeling when a package comes in and you can't wait to open it!!...also agree, Ginghers are sharp. Few years back mine got used to cut something thick and metal, thinking wire (yes wire...dh and ds both claimed they didn't recall using them...unh-hunh..lol) Anyways, got them re-sharpened and the nick smoothed out, and now everyone knows to ask me before touching any scissors that are around my quilting areas..
    Regards,
