    You have holly leaves? You must be going to do the winter poinsetta blocks? Now you have peaked my interest again on doing some leaves.

    I don't have the die, but Tomilu is cutting them for me. how many do you need? I can sure ask her to cut you some too. I'll take care of the fabric and fusible, just let me know how many. I have a great holly green color fab iwth gold sparkles....Would that work for you?

    That sounds good to me. Now I am definitely doing the winter block. I have some gorgeous poinsetta fabric. Let me know the cost and I will reimburse you. Or, I can make you another couple blocks if that would benefit you. I still have that cute poodle pattern that you are collecting or if there are any others. If you do all 12 blocks, that comes to 48 total of leaves. You are so good.

    How many have made a quilt yet with their blocks? Is this the challenge, to see who gets done first and including the quilting. LOL

    Well, give me about a week since I just got them. Working on the dog swap blocks at moment upon canning season. You tell this toe of mine to finish healing from surgery and the blood clots to quit forming and I will have the bugger put together and quilted. I did not put any stipulation on that binding mind you, that could take me another year to do. The one part I do not like to do. I usually trade quilting for binding.

    I would bind for you anytime. It's my favorite, everyone thinks I'm crazy but it is very relaxing for me.
    I almost have my pink poodle quilt ready. Just waiting for my new machine to get here and Off I will go.
    Glad you're feeling some better......
    What are you canning, Peaches, Apricots?

    I hope it is beets, tomatoes, green beans, and things for that hearty winter soup

    If you weren't across the country I would love to do your bindings, but I think that would be a very long drive to exchange quilting for binding unless you have an extra room for that overnight stay to complete the binding.......lol

    Of course I have the extra room, another child has left the house for college and it is a larger bed. So you are offering to do bindings for me while I quilt. I will have you know I just took two third places in a judged competition in Wyoming. So not bad at this point. I have four quilts right now sitting there for binding, of course several to get quilted, and working on putting together all these wonderful swaps for quilts. I have finished two for Lynnie so mine are not far behind.

    I am canning jams from the rhubarb and zucchini, found the recipes on this board and then tomatores that are well ready. If someone would go out and pick the corn, would freeze a few of those cobs up as well. Sure, have foot surgery and you have the garden to do as well. Praise God I have good help around the house and training up my girls to do food preservation. How do you think I learned it?

    Congratulations on your winning in Wyoming. Sounds like you really enjoy what you do and it shows in your work.

    I was raised to do preserves, jellies, jams, fruit, veggies from our summer garden to have during the cold winter. Nothing tastes better! I have a son who learned to cook and is very good at it......good thing too, his wife never learned at home, so when they were 1st married, they would have starved to death (or eaten out) if he had not been able to cook. She has made great strides in the last 18 years. Now my grandchildren are learning to cook and bake. Grandson made scratch brownies from my sons recipe and took them to band camp.....wowed the girls.....he was amazed they didnt know how to bake. He spent the summer as a camp counselor at Boy Scout Camp-----teaching campfire cooking.....I guess it is in the genes.

    My DH is the best chef ever. He does fabulous in the kitchen. He cooks, I bake/quilt. We make a good pair. He sometimes ha a hard time with the canning idea till he looks at the price and quality on the store shelf and then says we better get it done. I am trying to get the girls to do more cooking and it can be a feat. They can do the easy stuff, but get them to read a recipe now that is a challenge. How did we learn? It is a lost art nowadays I think. Us farm girls are going to be the ones showing the city clickers how to keep alive someday. No school like the old school.
