    My pal *should* have hers arrive tomorrow. Hopefully she's plugged the camera in to charge because I didn't take a pre-picture.

    I haven't posted my fabrics that I received from Mainewoods Mammie because I couldn't get the pictures to post. So I"m trying one more time. And if it doesn't work, I want to thank Ruth so much for the pretty fabric.

    Wow what beautiful fabrics. I am in love with the blue with pine cone on it.. never seen that one before. look a puppy! (keep looking surely you see it while I sneak on over and pilfer that one.. got it.. run run run) oh you cant see the puppy maybe next time. now that was close. I would love to know who makes that one.

    The winter themes are great. You all have such beautiful selections your sending! Any clue to the theme for January? I know sign ups arent til towards the end of the month but I could start pulling now... still hoping you opt out of mardi gras or maybe a choice mardi gras or .. valentines day? as the swap. so this way I can still play. I am fresh out of masks, beads, jewels, feathers, yuppers fresh out.

    went to the post office today all the way down the hill across the highway.. hellooooooo nopers empty box. Snow tomorrow so maybe Monday right? of course I could sneak down right now sit inside and wait! thats the ticket! send mittens and a scarf asap.

    Received FQ's from jclinganrey today. It will be nice to have a little stash of Christmas fabric to start some small projects next year. Maybe I can get started on them a little earlier than usual. I love this sparkling black one. Name:  DSCF0990.JPG

    I sure wish I knew where you all found your fabric at. I had a heck of a time finding that theme. But what I see on here, they are beautiful!!

Size:  134.3 KB wonderful card with thoughtful greetings included also. Thank you Nancy!


    On another note, I got to the post office today to send off my 2 assigned swaps. They're a little late but first time in a week without high temperature and a continuous hacking cough so it was safer to share my head cold. They should arrive this week to happy quilters. Happy Stitching!
    Special Note: All fabrics were pre-washed and ironed with no starch. I hope the hot steam from the iron killed off any attached cold germs.

    Wouldn't you know it ... I mailed off FQs this morning. Then went to an estate sale of a quilter this afternoon; in her stash were several pieces of snow-themed fabric, the prettiest of all was a 2 yard piece of blue with white glistening snowflakes. Now why couldn't I have found that earlier, it would've been to include in this month's swap. I bought it anyway along with some others, I need more fabric in my stash. LOL

    MaryMo if you get my name next month, you can send some to me. I'll take it, saving these Xmas things for next year so I can get an early start, well at least I do have good intentions. Maybe I'll run out of things to sew this summer and it will be great when it's so hot that I beg for winter. Now it's so cold I'm begging for summer....

    So why don't we do an exchange of summer fabrics in January? It would certainly warm me during the cold blah days!

    and yes, jaba, I could send you some of the glistening snowflakes mixed in .... if only I could draw your name .....

    But MaryMo I need some FQ's for Valentine's. Either way I'd have to buy some fabric for me or to trade, don't have any left in this house. St. Paddy's Day, May Day, what other little holiday's are coming in the months ahead???

    I wanted to share something Jaba sent me as a suprise Christmas gift. I was blown away. There is so much love put into the making of this i feel like I stole the big prize! Its wonderful. I think and she will correct me I am sure she used a quarter yard of six fabrics.. not sure if its a f4 or a quarter but isnt this the COOLEST tablerunner you have seen in a while? great use of smaller pieces of fabric or strips. its the greatest. ok Jan, you hung the moon...

    Hey Brenda ... you really got some outstanding fabrics and gifts. I like the complimentary fabrics from Kelly and that sign "Crazy Quilter" is you!

    and Elisabrat ... how do you rate with Jaba? That is one fantastic table mat/runner!

    Everybody is sending so many beautiful fabrics .... where did you find them all?
    Make it a scrappy happy day!
