    I am so glad that you liked it. I found the fabric while at my retreat in Panama city. It was a joy having you as my partner!
    I love to collect roosters of any kind. I also love embroidery thread for my machine. My favorite color is purple and i am just a plain old country girl.lol

    Beautiful quilts! Such creativity, too! Plus any fabrics that have metallic accents or have metallic thread quilting are right up my alley!! And I am the gal that thought I didn't like too much bling...that's what I get for thinking! HA!
    KwiltKrazy and I are mailing ours to each other soon. I had hers finished, took it into town when I was running, er..driving errands. Even stopped by post office. But changed my mind and decided I wanted to put in a couple of Christmas ornys for her. So back home, ornys finished, pkg carefully untaped, ornys added, pkg carefully retaped, ready to mail tomorrow. Last I heard Kwilt was finishing some paper piecing on my dq. I am sitting out dq #51, but will be lurking, have to ooh and aah over all the great quilts I know will be posted...

    She has thought about adopting an older child but would prefer to
    adopt siblings (she grew as an only child and always wanted siblings).

    My middle daughter (age 23) lives in Virginia Beach with her her husband
    who is in the Navy. Don't know if/when they might have kids.

    The youngest daughter is a Junior in College and is double majoring
    in Chemistry and Biology. She doesn't have a boyfriend, and doesn't
    plan to get one, or get married and have kids until she is finished with
    ALL of her schooling. This makes us VERY happy to know she is thinking
    about her career and future first. She will be 21 in December.

    At the rate things are looking though IF I ever do have grand kids it
    might be with the youngest girl. Unless my daughter gets more sure
    and serious about adoption.
    I have to tell you that before ds married (only child), I had gotten to where I would tell him I was going to be my own grandma since it appeared I would never be anyone else's! Lol.. Son would tell me, "Heck Mom, at the rate I'm going I'm going to start having to ask potential dates if they have grandkids instead of kids!". LOL..
    He graduated college, bought his house, and is established in his job. 1 year ago this past July he married a great girl (I say girl, she was 27, our son 28..lol). In addition to gaining a dil, hubby and I also gained a darling granddaughter. Dil was widowed at the age of 24, dgd was only a few months old when her daddy passed. It has been sad, bittersweet...but with sadness we also gained happiness. Our son is in process of adopting our dgd. She was 4 in June. And now her lil brother is due next month. So you never know when you will be gaining a grandchild!! And I must say it IS as great as it's cracked up to be!

    I received this gorgeous quilt from BertieD today, along with some extra fabric and notebook and candy! I love the shimmery effect of the flames and star, and she hand embroidered around them to make them really pop! Thanks, Bertie, I LOVE it!

Size:  850.9 KBBilbain and I must have been on same wave length. I received my quilt from her yesterday, too. So here is a copy of a most wonderful mini quilt from October 2013 Candle swap with her. I love her style! All that glitz--eat your heart out, Kiffie! It's mine, all mine! I love it! LOL!

    Bertie D and Bilben, what great quilts! Took the candle idea and ran with it! Love the applique and bling...I don't do applique (longstanding joke between me and a co-leader of a charitable quilt group who is an applique pro...but I do pretty good piecing!).

    I too love the bling factor in fabrics.. never in the clothes I wear (ok in a couple shirts there are rhinestones and sequins) but I love it in fabrics. that metallic thread? gorgeous! metallic fabric? gorgeous.. just enough to make it shine and this month is outstanding for that. Perfect outlet for us to get it out of our system. oh heck its never out of my system and I admit also I never wear any jewelry doesn't mean I don't ogle a pretty necklace, or ring or bracelet. out here not so much of that, more subtle but back in the bay area well some women went with the MORE is good.. a bit of the Hollywood factor lol..

    the candles are wonderful every single one of them, similar and different all at once. I could not pick a favorite this month at all.

    Here today... why what a lucky bunch we are.

    Oh I could pick a favorite! IF everyone wants to send all of their doll quilts to me so I can keep, er "inspect" them up close...and for a loooong time I could pick one, I am sure of it...it would just take me a while, though, a loooong while

    Just arrived home from another few amazing days at our fishing shack and look what was waiting for me....this beautiful little quilt made by emc118. Libby, your free motion quilting is very good and I love the colours in this little quilt. Thank you so much too for the wine holder and coasters, they will certainly come in very handy

    I hope my little quilt for you arrives soon.

    And for those of you who think here in Tasmania we are enjoying nice sunny spring/summer weather, think again as this is what I woke to on Saturday morning - 5inches of snow, the trees were amazing and apart from the day without power (sewing withdrawals), it was spent taking endless photos and walking in the snow enjoying the experience !!

    I am glad it arrived and you like it. When I got home tonight there was a package waiting for me. I was so excited until I saw it was from Amazon!! I am a patient person, it won't be long now.

    The snow looks beautiful! It looks so peaceful...... I just don't like it on my sidewalks, driveway, any street I have to drive on, etc.

    Keep hoping KwiltKrazy gets the dq I made her soon!! I always have said you can tell when you've really grown up. It's when you are more excited to see what others think of what you give them than waiting to get something for yourself.

    Kiffie;
    I received your lovely lamp-lighter quilt today, it is superb. You couldn't of made me happier if you'd sent me the Taj Mahal. Will post a picture tonight, along with my wonderful Christmas ornaments.
    Would you like a small preview of your quilt?
