    It Came!!!!!

    Wow! that book is GREAT! I have been putting all my stuff, envelopes, etc in a box. Got it out a couple of weeks ago, was gonna organize and get all written down. Yea, RIght! I can't remember what I did this morning, much less which letter went with which DQ, did I send? Did I receive? I will figure it out. Someday. LOL
    On a MUCH better note, just look at the beautiful DQ Hearthhush sent me. And a matching Mug Rug. You know, I am growing very fond of Mug Rugs!! Yellow is my all time favorite color. This looks so bright and cheery. Makes me think of spring. Thank you Hearthhush!! I love it.

    I gotta ask. How do you get the notes I see at the bottom of some of the pictures? Tells you what the picture is?

    Lynnie, what a wonderful idea for keeping track of your DQ experiences!
    Beautiful DQs' coming in, love all the creativeness.

    Tesspug: Mailed out your DQ today, you should see it on Friday per the PO Bosses.
    Sent my PM to Krystyna for the March sign up, can't wait!

    Lynnie-love the view from your porch...perfect for sewing, reading or just daydreaming. You were my first swap partner, and I stitched some poppies for you(don't know if you remember, but I do).....love the book idea....think a few of us ought to come on down, sit on your porch and chat, maybe sip tea together. Sounds good to me.

    I do each page in Microsoft Word and insert the pictures into the page. It's real easy to do and I just use the month's before template to do a new month. The display folder is great to hold the pages and I attach letters, notes, received from my swap partners to the back of the page. LOL you can see I was an office administrator for over 30 years.

    I am happy to send you a template of a page if you want, just PM me

    I love the poppies quilt you sent Linny, I get it out every Anzac Day (April 25) and display it as a tribute to our fallen soldiers as poppies are sold on this day as well as Remembrance Day in November.

    Okay, there will be a QB Quilting Retreat in Tasmania, anytime between December and March... any year !!!

    Oh my, I love the cheery 'braid' quilts that have come in, was a great idea to do a strips and stripes theme.

    tasmania? sign me up! lovely work you ladies are doing. fine job root toot toot and all the rest. I never even gave the braid a thought at all. such a pretty item and didnt once occur to me. Now maybe I have to try it I am making runners right and left and that seems like it would work terrific for a runner too.

    Being a country girl, this made me think of skyscrapers in the city. I just love it.
