    Wow after a not grand day to find so many wonderful sign ups and repeats thank you ladies. you made what could have been one heck a cruddy day into a not so bad evening. I hope I wrote to all who signed up if not hit me up again to make sure ok? I have everyone I wrote back to in my list of players.

    please chat here, even one liners are ok. it keeps everyone alert to your playing and hey you might have fun! we talk only serious stuff here (uh huh) and nothing frivolous at all goes on.. so done your serious side and play along its not as hard as it seems! and no one keeps score!

    BRAT!

    No Halloween for me either as we don't really celebrate it. But love any fall themed fabrics and prefer a square/round/hexagon shape rather than a long runner.

    Well, Seriously...water aerobics kicked my %&$ tonight! worked until my arms are spaghetti. Hope they'll be functioning tomorrow! On a frivolous note (shh don't tell Brat) I think I'll sit tonight with a little glass o' wine and ponder this swap. What will the design be? Appliqué leaves? Pumpkins? just a nice piece runner in fall batiks??? What if my partner wants Halloween? That's a whole different thing, maybe 2 glasses are in order

    Lynnie25, good to see you were sucked into this new swap too! I'm thinking autumn theme for the one I make, but am happy to receive either autumn or Halloween.

    This is why I didn't buy that fabric when I was at Joann's last weekend! Some want fall, others want Halloween. It was cute fabric too! I can't believe I went in there for an embroidery thread box set for my new machine (which by the way, the store in Columbus, GA now no longer carries any box sets of any thread) and came out without spending a penny!

    MORNING QUILTIES! I am listening to 10,000 birds chirping in the front hedge. you cant see them but boy can you hear them and they are so sweet they start singing about 4 am. how lucky! uh not. ok its alright you get used to it. I used to live in the woods and these tiny itty bitty tree frogs made a heck of a racket so this is .. just a racket. Coffee is ready so come on over, anyone want Danish? wish I was making those for a few of you! ok ALL OF YOU not excluding anyone see I can play fair!

    Tlambing you were hiding the wine from me because? you know I come with straws??? lol hope you enjoyed your wine and your ideas got better by the end of that glass! sounds marvelous. pumpkins I am all about leaves and pumpkins .. I collect glass pumpkins they are so pretty. could keep them out all year but then well where would the valentines stuff and the fourth of July stuff and of course.. well you get the idea.

    Dustysmomma you get an award! you went INTO a fabric store and left with nothing. I will call it the WHAT WERE YOU THINKING AWARD! let me help you shop next time as apparently I have no issue with it. I just ordered some clearance fabric from craftconn.com and some tina givens stuff was 1.18 a yard or some ridiculously low price. also got me some turkeys however.. every woman in her right mind needs those. and that yard of skunk fabric was so adorable I had to have some of that too.. and well I did much better than you did shopping. 8 yrds of fabric shipping included 24.00 so not bad. it was the skunks that did me in. now I want the beaver and the squirrel fabric that matches backyard critters or something is the line. way too cute. beware I see a runner in the future for those fabrics.

    oh le brat...I see you making place mats to match that critter runner...I'm sure hubby will LOVE the critters you make. Speaking of...how is Wally??? (That is the critter's name that your hubby brought home, right?)

    Having a heck of a time here...lots of tears, lots of things throwing in my kitchen last night, lots of fit pitching while lil man and I were in the bedroom watching Jake and the Neverland Pirates and Sophia the First. Somebody has got to find this man a job before I build a woodshed for myself to hid in!!!

    Good afternoon all, it is ptly sunny, kind of cool but warm when the sun comes out. I spent all morning weeding 2 flower beds and then had to give 3 of the dogs baths! These 3 roll in dirt after they go fishing in the pond and they look like little kids who have been playing in mud puddles - black instead of white and yellow. Need to hang my sheets on the line and then off to the sewing machine! A quilting I will go.....(I'm having a hard time not running off to a quilt shop to pick up a few "fall" colors for my future runner!)

    fun site that sale site to be sure. I found some pretty leaf fabric (fall ones) and some ruby colored mum fabric that will e a terrific blender.. ah fabric. my happy spot. speaking of happy spots:

    22 sign ups already!!! oh happy days, yes it is , oh happy days... thank you to all who sent pm's to join the wild ones here on the quilting board. We love to have you chat with us too so please post a note here and there .. that way the quilt police don't have to come to your home to make sure your still alive!

    skunks, beavers, oh what cute mats those would make. not sure what else one makes with stuff like that but a boys quilt came to mind. a little boy would like it. a monster size little boy (my dh) would too. He is being manly and cutting wood with Jan's hubby today. I think yours needs to go cut wood too. come back in a week maybe. Mine is out of work currently too. way too much bonding time for us. I am thrilled he goes fishing. just scared of what I get in return is all.. and its not the fish that scare me. its the treasures he finds. (antelope legs, deer legs..squirrel skulls you know TREASURES). Wallie the beaver is doing marvelous. He is hanging right next to my little Mexican cross on the bedroom wall. all future treasures are confined to the bedroom. at night I am sleeping who sees them but man I hope he stops 'shopping' for me soon. anyone ever suggest FABRIC? too basic he says. oh.

    RFC,
    Sounds like you've had a fun morning! I can picture your 4 footed babies trekking in all muddy and in need of a good bath...much like 2 footed kiddoes can be on a nice summer day! Its hot, hot, hot here...and windy. Sure do wish we could get some of that rain that gets oh so close and teases us...I am off to bake something, anything sweet and then on to some quilt room organizing (again..lol). I agree with you on not picking up more fabrics...figure its a good thing I live out "a ways" from the shops, as I would probably have 2 rooms of fabric instead of 1...
    Regards,
    K

    I'd like a fall themed runner also. Love the bright oranges, purple and yellows, no muted or soft colors meteringmetering

    I'm going to pretend that I didn't see a site name where I can get cheap fabrics. I may not make it out emptyhanded twice in one week!
