    Hello Ladies, So far we have a total of 24 swappers signed up....11 for TRICK and 11 for TREAT and 3 either way.

    I will do my best to assign partners as tricksters with tricksters and then fall treats with fall treats! so that way if you need to get started you can.

    oh Jaba what a surprise! your finished already!!! sigh.. I am in concept stage still but that is good as my partner could be either a trick or a treat and I want to get their colors and a feel for how .. normal or like me they are and the wonders of this swap is our INCREDIBLE swap leader has stated she knows how much I want a SPIDER quilt (oh dear LORD) that she will hook me up nicely. I will send you back your spider quilt if you make me one so don't even think of it.. not even slightly. no way no how... anyone want sneak peaks as to the fabrics I might chose from??? the blocks? I have a stack of 20 Halloween quilt blocks I received in a boom I did recently and would love to turn them into wall hangings and table runners.. yet there is that terrific fall fabric I bought/was traded in fq trades (three swaps in fact!) and the TURKEYS that were purchased because I had to have them.. and well.. pumpkins! elegant pumpkins! bright orange on hot blue pumpkins! muted subtle browns and rust pumpkins! or green batik leaves! rust leaves! stunningly bright bold green/yellow/rust leaves! oh and civil war fabrics in fall colors also for those who like a more Americana colored palate subtle and reserved... or hot purples and neon oranges and yellows! so tough to chose.. so you see, I need a partner to figure that one out. SIGN UP> especially if you like the chance you might just get whacky old suntanning chicken me!

    I haven't even got a plan yet. I have been helping mom with her first DQ for August and not feeling great has been taking its toll on me.

    I haven't had more than 2 hours of sleep for the last week, so haven't wanted to attempt anything being sleep deprived. Last night I finally got a good 4 hours solid. I am feeling better today so far than I have in a while.

    I will take crazy any day. I love looking outside the box.

    She hasn't said and I haven't asked her yet. She is finishing up this months today, so hopefully she will have more confidents to join again.

    Yes I will be losing my mind if I don't get more sleep. I think the meds are finally kicking in so I can get more sleep. Not feeling as bad today. So I guess the antibotic shot yesterday is really helping. He now has me on 2 different ones, one for the sinus infection and one for possible - most likely MRSA, since I use to work in a hospital were they always had patients infected with it. I am ready for my 4 day weekend, next weekend have lots to get done and feeling like ick........doesn't help get it done.

    I am don't ranting.

    I worked on my Trick quilt today, going for a slightly skewed take on Halloween but think it will be a fun quilt when it's finished. Hope my partner is ready for it (who ever that may be)

    Lynnie do kids celebrate Halloween in Australia? I heard in Holland at think it was Easter the kids dress up and what we would call trick or treat but not or the Halloween we celebrate here in America. Curiosity and all love learning about other countries holidays so please share so we can all learn. Also do you celebrate a type of Thanksgiving and if so when??

    I'm in again. I couldn't sign up for last month as I've been swamped getting ready for my guilds' quilt show. Now that I can breathe again, I get to do more swaps!

    As a whole we don't celebrate Halloween here in Australia but the tradition is catching on over the last few years and we have lots more Halloween items to buy in shops and in the larger cities, kids do go out trick and treating. There are a lot more Halloween parties happening on the actual Halloween date too.

    We don't celebrate Thanksgiving or anything like that on a certain day/date but at the beginning of our autumn (April) there are lots of food festivals to celebrate the abundance of great food. Christmas Day is celebrated by a large hot mid-day meal with turkey/stuffing etc but because that is in our summer, lots of people nowadays just have a picnic lunch in parks or backyard barbeques and seafood is more favourable than the traditional hot turkey/roast.

    There are a lot more fun holiday days in America than there are here in Australia that's for sure. Australia Day (January 26) is probably our most popular day where everyone joins in some kind of celebrations.

    Hi to my DQ friends! I am in for Sept. and I will do TRICK. One of my designs is in this months Fons & Porter and it is "a cat fright sight" with a cat face and pumpkin button. I stitched one up last night and I just have to put the back on and sew on buttons and its ready to go! Now this is very unusual for me, usually I try and toss out at least three ideas before I get going! So I'm feeling pretty tickled right now! By the way....I missed you all last month.

    Thanks Lynnie, I used to have a good friend from Australia. Her hubby was stationed at the airforce base near us in CA. I couldn't remember what that big day was Australia day is it. She said it was like our Thanksgiving in equivalence. Our boys went to the same school so we tried to do all the holidays together it was a whole lot of fun and a whole lot of holidays! Here in America Halloween is the second best selling holiday next to Christmas. I am for one into a more homespun concept but I think I am alone. I love the holidays but create them yourselves don't go buy it all. not to be for sure. a dying dinosaur I am!

    We came up to the cabin for a LONGGGGG weekend (Friday to Tuesday).
    Than there was a late afternoon rain shower (small amount of lightning
    and thunder but not much), afterwards we saw this awesome rainbow
    on the lake across the street.
    The picture may not show it but the rainbow is in the MIDDLE of the
    lake (or at least from our view it is).


    Have a HAPPY and SAFE holiday weekend everyone.
