    Oh that is very pretty Yosamitesa. If I were you I would hide it now like oh dear no idea where I put that! until after mom leaves then you can put it on your table. Sneaky sneaky rules the day sometimes Thanks Krystyna I am working hard at having fun .. so far to minimal success but the week is still young! two more days.. I am so mentally gone my house isnt mine anymore.. nothing of me in it. weird how that changes up a place instantly and how quickly we lay 'claim' to something once we are living in it. Marking it in a human way lol..

    Krystyna, I received my runner on Monday. So sorry I have not been on the QB this week. Too much going on around here. WOW! It is perfect!!! I love it. Thank you!!!!! I will take a picture of it tomorrow and post it.

    I have one more corner to quilt. Then on to binding. My plan is to have it completed so I can mail on Monday. I was scheduled to work tomorrow, but because our accounts were in line by the end of business today. I will be in the sewing corner all weekend.

    good for you queenof2802. Sitting in a sewing corner is a fantasy of mine right now. Forget Fabio and all that stuff.. I dream of sewing corners. My how life changes as we grow older lol. Today I start "Le Grand Adventures of Le Brat and her entourage". We head out this morning in just about 1.5 hours and I am READY. sorta. lol. I figured it was better to call these the grand adventures than getting in the car with El Grumpo and my screaming cats. I will update on the wonderous trip, the beautiful views.. and the calming music I will enjoy in the car (LMAO)..Everyone have a beautiful day and I can't wait to see the rest of the runners on here. So many are still.. silent. oddly so in fact. partners on both sides. Yosemitesa how many have received so far?? (she is my record keeper I had to hire her I suck so bad)

    I am so relieved that you like it. Granted it's not to everyone's taste. I'd love to see it on your table!

    Here are a couple of "teaser" pics that I am posting for babyfire04 to see what I am making for her, pics are actually sideways like the table runner would be running horizontal, sry for the goof

    I told babyfire04 she would get a big laugh out of the pics and that the rest of y'all would probably think that I have lost the few marbles I still have.... Another hint: the "theme" of the runner actually has to do with something that she says she loves to collect....
    On a side note I am battling a kidney stone...have had 20+ of them thru the years, started in my early 20's. I told my Uro Dr that I wanted the week-end to try and pass this one...but my track record is not good with passing them without surgical intervention...think I have passed 2-3 on my own. Mine are usually too large and they look like goathead stickers.
    Off to keep working on the table runner and the kidney stone...(sorry for my bad sense of humor...I have to make bad jokes to keep from crying sometimes...)
    Regards,
    Kif

    Mine will be ready to be mailed soon, just need to finish the binding and wash it. Now my partner will be on vacation until mid July and may show up here in my neck of the woods for a short visit to the Batik store here. Hoping we can meet up and I will hand deliver her runner otherwise it will be delivered closer to the time she will be back home.

    I made it! We are here I am super pooped out! and Jan is a seriously gracious hostess. Last night she cooked us a home cooked dinner which is exactly what the doctor ordered. Today is checking out our new apartment and then dialysis at noon til 3, move furniture after 3, fall over dead shortly after that lol and then find a way to get groceries and all that is needed after that.. and 100 doctor/medical insurance appointments dmv, social security other than that I see us sitting back and relaxing. Its truly lovely here and we both feel we did the right thing coming. More updates later seriously have things to get done before we head on over. The cats are residing in Jaba's green house at the moment. I am off to see how they are hating I mean enjoying it. They have determined they hate moving. Seriously hate moving and want their stuff back immediately. like two days ago immediately.

    ps wonderful to hear so many runners are being sent out. Right on you guys! Skaduzy has not heard from her partner, I have left a phone message but so far.. nothing. so if you find you are in the same boat come the end of the swap she would be happy to swap with you so keep that in mind! in the mean time I will hope her partner comes back and does what she signed up to do. frustrating so please keep in touch with your partners, let me know if you cant find them asap.

    Wow!! Lots to catch up on. But first things first. I finished my runner. Gonna put a label on it tonight and mail it out in the morning!! Yippee!! Skippi!!
    Sooooooo sorry about the kidney stones. They are HORRIBLE!! Drink lots so you will pee lots!! Yea, like you didn't know that.
    Wow, Bratt, sounds like you got lucky. I am still looking for a quilting partner that won't poop out on me!! When we moved I lost 2 quilting buddies, too far for them to come often. One went back to school and the other was elected township treasurer. My sister live all the way accross the country. Visited a local LQS, but didn't feel real welcome. Prob just me, I am hard to get to know, I guess. Thank goodness for the QB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Well, my runner top is done and it is now in line on my "big" table waiting to be sandwiched. Had good intentions to have it done by today, but had a visit from grandbaby ... and you know how that goes. Anyway, it's coming, MrsMack, don't fear. Will let you know when i put it in the mail.

    Brat -- congratulations on arriving at your new home. A new start -- kind of exciting. I imagine the cats will milk the sympathy out of you over their displeasure for a good long while. Best wishes to you and hope you find really great places to put all your "stuff".

    Sounds like most everyone's runners are getting finished or close to it. Will be fun to see pics soon. Brat, I am so relieved that your trip went well. Hugs those kitties for me and tell them life sometimes changes. Jaba, it is so wonderful that you are such a great friend! I am finally able to move my index finger on my left hand. Got stung Fri. morn by something wicked and my entire hand was swollen up until Sun. night when things began to get better. Nice to be able to do things with two hands again.
    She who dies with the most fabric, didn't sew fast enough!

    Glad you liked it AuntCrabby and hope you enjoy it. Looking forward to receiving mine. Got the Brat to her apt and she is busy with appts and all the other things that go with moving, t.v., internet, etc. . She will be back on hopefully today when they get re-hooked up

    Some very pretty runners here. And they are off the starting line up it appears. Ok, enough of puns. I look forward to seeing mine from you gals. I have not heard from KGoodhand if she received hers up north of us. Hopefully she has.
