    Debbie, that is a cute little quilt!

    Sign up for March isn't up yet. It's too early ... but the theme will be ... "A Little Bit of Green" ...
    What does that mean? St. Patrick's Day? The first peek of spring greenery? Green with envy? Going green?
    You decide!

    Moonrise, what a lovely creation!
    Received my DQ from Tess, it is beautiful! Also, potholders and ribbon, I can feel Spring seeping into these old bones. Thanks Tess, you were a great partner!

    Tess, forgot to add, I will be mailing yours on Monday when the Post Office opens up. I have been having trouble for two days getting page 9 (last page) to load, when I would hit last, it would take me to page 7. Anyone else having a grumpy computer?

    I got my DQ fromHearthhush today. It is absolutely beautiful! She used a pattern I just downloaded cause I liked it so much, and it is my favorite color! Yellow, very springy! It came with matching mug rug. I will post pictures when I get in to town on Tuesday, or when I figure out how to do it with my phone. Thank you, Hearthhush, from the bottom of my heart.

    Updates from the MIA side!!

    I got a BEAUTIFUL doll quilt from DiFergie!! (I'm embarrassed how long it's taken me to post this!)

    Di - The star was adorable; what glimpse I got of it! My son immediately announced, "That's for me" and marched it off to his room to hang it up. It's hanging proudly on his wall now; he loves finding 'his' ::ahem, MY:: goodies in the mail!

    And yours is on the way! Shipped it today!

    DiFergie, great strips and stripes!
    Megan, what a cutie you have!
    Tulip, yep. Green. You can interpret that any way you want.
    And it can just be a teeny tiny speck of green.

    Here's how I have just spent three wonderful days - lovely sunny weather, sewing and reading on the verandah. Got the blocks for 2 quilts done and ready to join together. Why don't you come join me??

    I have been doing the dolls quilt swap for over 2 years now and I have kept a record of the dolls quilts I sent and received each month in a display folder. Some of my little DQs are displayed on the wall in my sewing room and I have had displays of them occasionally in the public library and the local community centre but other than that, they are packed neatly away in bag. I find having the record in the display folder allows me to look through them every now and again to refresh where I sent a quilt and where I got one from. How does everyone else keep a record of what little quilts they sent/received?

    Lynnie25, what a lucky girl you are! AlaskaAlice you did a superb job on the DQ you sent! I love your scrapbook Lynnie! I can't remember what month and year you and I were partners, but I imagine I'm in your book? What fun it would be to chat and sew with you and Krystyna! We can dream right????
