    I think ok I have decided (key word) that I am perfect. I can sew a perfect block, a perfect runner and that its going to be a sure thing when I make the next runner. Since I have decided it it must be true. this is my new theory. Go with me on this it might be like a magic thing! tada! magically I have done it! good thing I am a believer in this. I think it might take a bit more to convince ya' all. I finished all my ufo's. yup all of them. ok have to quilt this months doll quilt but its not a ufo. lol.. its a current project. one more doll quilt and I am home free. til I partner for this swap and work on my magical quilted runner.

    dinner was a marvelous success.. veal parm and pasta and broccoli with cheese and then of course fresh crepes with apple pie filling and powder sugar. Steve asked me is something wrong with him I didn't tell him yet? he felt like it was his last meal it was so good. lol.. I am so glad there was enough for dinner tomorrow. how lucky is that?

    Dinner sounds delicious - the girls and I had our Ladies Stag Night out for dinner - the club wasn't serving dinner tonight so we went to a local pizza place - I had a Greek Salad w/chicken - DELICIOUS - had the best combination of olives/cucumber/tomato and feta cheese and homemade salad dressing to die for; this one I will have to learn to make at home - I'm a fan of foods with stronger more robust flavors. Taking a coffee break now from project - quilting is finished just have to attach the binding - hopefully done tonight - it's late - my machine hit a snag and needed attention - all the stitches I had done up to that point had to be taken out and started over - not a fun task.
    Thank goodness I have an understanding partner that also hit a snag - she smashed her hand - I hope it's better soon and she can use it once again. I will always be not perfect - I strive to be but there will forever be room for improvement - oh fairy godmother of mine come wave your magic wand.
    Be good to yourself - do one thing each day that makes you smile.

    hey you stay away from my magic, girl! that is for ME. otherwise I might be just average which is not my first choice. heck no.. it might be a reality but its not my first choice smashed hands??? OMG that hurts just thinking about it. Poor partner!

    I hate when the stitching on quilting needs to be ripped. especially on batiks they seem more fragil and easier to tear. on tops and such removing stitches not a big thing.. quilted it is a total chore. ugh for you too! hope that you figured out your machine snag so it doesn't happen again. Last time for me it was a whole big row down a big quilt eyelashed. wanted to cry. or throw it all away. did neither so beneath me lmao.

    OK we have TWO more days for sign ups come one come all, if you guys know anyone who might be interested let them know we are here and happy for a few more. Its still early enough in the season to get one more project done before you do projects come on in!!!

    last day for sign ups I will close this at noon tomorrow so be quick as a cricket and jump on over to the table runner side! you can make a mat! smaller quicker.. or you can make a beautiful long runner up to you.. these are always such a fun project and fairly quick. .... snowmen? santas? trees in the woods? menorah's? ice skating? not sure what kwanza items are but could learn if that is what you want.. we even have someone who has requested a valentine runner so you see.. variety is the spice of life. come ... spice up your life!

    oh oh I like winter blues and whites (el hinto quilting krazy) ok pink lady for sure now we will do a fall retreat at your place I have never seen all those colors in one spot during fall. In the sierras well we had evergreen big old redwood trees and pine trees and well .. here we have evergreen it appears shrubs and a bit of yellow so far that I have seen and in AZ in the canyon we had a lot of yellow trees.. a rainbow of trees is GORGEOUS!

    tlambing is my computer guru. she is like this wiz kid on the computer I am in love with her (she is sticking her tongue at me as I type).

    Pink Lady - those trees are beautiful - thanks for sharing.

    tlambling - how fun to see all the runners/mats in one spot!

    Looking forward to my new partner on this swap! Good thing I already have my fabric for this as right now I am working without pay - courtesy of our Congress!

    well off to pick up the man in the mulch vehicle (it should be mulched is my theory its a beater to be sure) and will be back cook dinner then assign partners. so if your still up in your neck of the woods check back after 8 tonight otherwise in the morning all names will be here for you to see who your partnered with. yahoooo! (amazing no new sign ups.. think I may have scared them off!) ((OHHH NOOOOOO)

    Pink Lady,
    All I can say about that Autumn pic is beeee-yooo-teee-fulll! I love this time of year! Hopefully we will get a "proper" Autumn this year. With the drought, our seasons seem to be all messed up, too...
    Tlambing, I know I already said this over on the other thread, but just want to say it again, Thanks so much for posting the pic of all of the awesome runners!

    (Looks around for partners......nope)

    It's been slightly hectic at work this week, but this weekend is going to be more hectic. Dinner with the man's alumni council tonight, then tomorrow night a party with a bunch of big money donors at one of his colleague's homes. This is the guy with all the exotic hunting trophies, so it'll be fun to see what's been added.

    oK brat fell asleep it was dialysis day. I was going to take a nap it just lasted til this morning my apologies.

    Here are the partners: if I left you off please let me know asap! I will fix that in no time at all and if you just want to join if two of you do then your in otherwise I will have to ask if anyone wants to do two..

    drum roll please! I tried to match you up based on what allergies first as that is most important. after that what you would like to make/receive. I may have blown it this has rarely been known to happen with me (shush up all of you). so here it goes:

    CHEESEHEAD and JABA
    TLAMBING and QUILTINGKRAZY
    GRANDMADI and KLGS
    OKSEWNSEW and CHASEZZZ
    KIFFIE2413 and LIKETHEDOG
    SKADUZY and ALICIAH
    ONETEAPOT and DABBLER312
    DUSTYSMOMMA and Mom-6

    Please contact your partner and discuss what you would like to receive. We had requests for winter, Christmas and for Valentines Day. So be sure you clarify this with each other and if there is any troubles say due to lack of that type of fabric etc let me know I can possibly switch everyone around.

    ps if you have already had that same partner I apologize. I don't keep lists of who sends to who on each swap. We are a small group of swappers here on the board so you will most likely have the same person many times over all the swaps. It happens. Upside is you know your partner Should trouble arrive with this for you please let me know otherwise .. if you can just go with it that would make my life just a tiny bit simpler. phew. I totally go for simpler.

    Yea - partners have been assigned - oneteapot is a new swap partner for me; it will be fun getting to know a little bit about her.

    Nap all you want on dialysis days - we don't walk in one another's shoes so don't have any idea what the other is going through. I logged in super late last night/very early this morning and figured something else more important came up - like maybe you took a stick to that new vehicle of yours - lol just kidding. Every time Brian's Old Ida needs to go to the garage for repairs I cringe if he asks me to drop it off and then laugh hystrically while driving it - it's such a bomb.

    I'm super excited for my paper piece class that starts tomorrow - Glacier Star - I was hoping to use midwinter reds but the shop doesn't have that line - sigh; on the other hand they have all sorts of other beautiful fabrics to select from. I'll try and post a photo over the weekend of my colored interpretation of what I'm hoping to accomplish.

    You all have a fantabulous day.
