    Did I mention that I found the TR pattern I am going to use? I lied. . . or changed my mind is a better phrase. I now have the perfect old school (in my mind anyway) pattern that I just need to turn into red, white and blue. . . and still make a summer theme. How's that for a teaser?

    Here's some fat quarters which were calling me for the runner. Now that the print that went with these exactly is back ordered I'm conflicted. What do you think of the fabric?

    I like them very bright and cheery... love that they are not all solid but more tone on tone..just my preference

    I am glad you guys are at least thinking on what to do. I have visions of making 20 angel runners which all in all would sorta irk me a bit. and I would be slow as always.. like a turtle at the machine. (now that is an image).

    Strawberries wish I was canning some. Saw cherries for sale yesterday from those guys who sit at intersections in small towns? yikes. 7.00 a small strawberry basket full of them. good thing only I eat them. Maybe I will get some maybe I will just look at them instead. That is a bit of change there for not too much. heck one could not make a pie with that amount.. think how much a pie would cost? WOWSA!
    When my kids were small I canned cases and cases of jam. berries of all sorts apricots, spiced peach, pie fillings oh boy and we ran out too at the end of the season. now we eat about a case.. we as in Steve. He loves berry jam. Someone just gave us a large jar of blackberry jam so hopefully he might like that. It could buy me a month

    Salads ok they all sound good. when shall we have the party? I think Jaba has party hats or crowns lol and I have all sorts of assorted glasses for say iced lemonaide, tea, margaritas, chilled white wine.. water.. and oh we need fruit salad who has a recipe for that they love? I am thinking a salad with strawberries, herbed feta and pecans sounds great but not poppy seed dressing. something like a rice wine vinegrette.. light slightly sweet but tart.. and what else???

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

    Oh, berryberry I love them! and since it is for me! yup, I think that is what you should make! yours is finished, but I am thinking I might do another one then pick out one to send to you and one to give to my sister! Hey Brat 20 table runners! Dang girl that is quite the nightmare! maybe you should just sew them all together and make a quilt!!! I am sure you will be happy with the follow through in this group. We all love to sew and make cool stuff and then share~

    Well I am off to the park, gotta let this little one run, and she will sleep good tonight!
    Give a smile away today, someone you meet might need one!

    Love the batik fabrics - beautiful summer fun!!!!!

    My partner likes bright batiks - sounds like they are her favorites - I'm thinking of using small template for drunkards path and making it a little scrappy.

    Summer is the season of salads - I like to have creamy cucumbers when cucumbers are in season. My favorite is a spinich salad with strawberries - red onion - few pecans and feta cheese with a very light drizzle of raspberry dressing served with grilled salmon. I have hartier salads that pull double duty and work wonderful in a sandwich. After all this chatter about food can you guess what I'll be having for dinner tomorrow night - YUMMMO!

    Dabbler, cucumbers! Yum! One of my favorite salads is fresh chilled cucumber slices, salted to make them crisp and then drained, mixed with a dressing of sour cream, vinegar, pinch of sugar, and dill. Yum yum yum yum.

    oh oh raspberry salad dressing sounds grand! and cucumbers? I love them we grew up eating them on a toasted rye or pumpernickle bread, butter and a tad of salt on top too! yum yum yum... tonight we had a dinner snack of dry salami, fontina cheese, duck pate..deer summer sausage and some homemade cheeseball that I made and oh oh some cut up apple and that was a wonderful dinner snack! later I will have a green salad and all will be heaven

    Yosametisa love your fabrics it is hard cutting into your good stuff lol but sorta think that is why we bought it right? it was good? no point in letting it become something no one wants by keeping it in your fabric bin for years. I had this big bin of fabric when i moved to Arizona and became disabled so I mailed it all to my niece. Well when I started quilting again a couple years ago my sis said hey she still had half of it and laurel wasnt sewing any longer so she sent it to me. I thought cool! then I saw the fabric? omg.. my tastes had changed completely and I instantly donated about 80 percent of it .. sigh.. so use it now while you still like it! (warped but its true.. save it cause you like it and you end up hating it later.. what the heck is up with that???).

    I had fresh cucumber salad tonight - I make mine with diced onion - a little salad dressing, cider vinegar, half and half, pinch of pepper - it's the way we grew up making them. I also had fresh broccoli, cauliflower and carrot salad to go with it.

    Tlambing I love it! That is very patriotic I am glad we all got on a health kick with our salads.. I am sure the President and Mrs. Obama will be happy to hear we ate healthy even if it was only in our minds

    Has anyone heard from Aunt Crabby? her partner would like to mail but needs her mail to! and we both have written her with no response.. help! I know she was recommended by someone here.. maybe you know where she is??

    This is why I am going to suggest to you: Don't you mail your runners til you are sure you both are on the same page, are communicating and well know you both will be good to go with sending a runner to each other. I do not want one single person here to send a runner and not receive one back. You can do what you chose to do but please note I am offering this warning. Keep in contact with each other, once a month every two weeks, every day right here in the forum.. por favor!!

    Booked full for today with cleaning, boom blocks and catching up on pictures. Tomorrow is going to be labeling envelopes and picking out fabrics I think (can't rush picking fabrics, it's the best part!) Now what way to go. My partner likes Coca-Cola, red-white-black but gave me freedom to do anything since the last few have been those colors. The question is would she be happier with that color scheme or could something else be the ticket.... hmmmm..... I am perplexed. Any ideas ladies? Really thinking of adding grey into the design somewhere.

    If it makes you happy, it's worth the time!

    The only thing healthy about my diet are the healthy size portions I eat - no wonder I'm a healthy size - LOL
