    SheriR - Ohhhh love all the blocks but sure hope I get one with the hair crullers. That brings back memories of the 70ies.

    You know you make plans and they all go out the window. I only have time to send inthe 3 sets that i have made. I won't be able to do the last one because my friend is dragging me around to see everyone that wants to see me. ( I love that so don't mind) So I really haven't had time to sit down to sew yet and probably won't until the 10th or 11 and I hate to be pressured to finish so Iwill only be sending in three sets. will mail them on Monday.

    I am going to have to really knuckle down so I can finish up mine. I am doing one now on the embroidery machine. I am going to have to get two more sets so I can get some of these wonderful blocks. Oh I just have to have that curlers chicken. It just cracks me up. Reminds of my mom when she was younger and would set her hair. She still does but not as much. Got that Mariposa? I really need her. One of my designs is three little chicks in a stack. If I can, will do the chickens on a stack, but wanting to do the chicken in the bucket design I have. Will see. My DD has a young man staying with us this weekend to meet. He has no idea what he is in for. We have yard work and gutter work lined up for him to help with. No one stays here for free especially if you want to date my daughter. We are so ready. Even have the list of interview questions for him. She is smitten with him so we need to le thim know where we stand and what we expect to date our daughter. I know she is 21, but she is still our baby.

    Love it! And the list of things to do too!

    @SheriR - all I can say is get ready for some side swaps sister because the pressure is on for hair curler chick! Everytime I look at it...I just burst out laughing. It is so cute and funny I just can't stand it.

    Of course he does if he behaves and measures up to my standards. He has to be as good as my man and better. One thing I have noticed is that he is always smiling just like my daughter and expects that smile to smooth everything out. It reminds me of my dd. OMG. We did work him pretty good and I slept with daughter to be sure nothing happened and I am sore and tired already this am. So not the thing I want to keep doing. He did behave and what a suck up. I was laughing just because of the "kindness" he tried to push over on me. What a ham he can be. I know he is just trying to impress us, but still, be real please. Will report later. I did manage to get one more set done, now doing another one this am. My back, from the work I did canned 22 jars of soup for daughter for college, so I was such toast last night and afternoon. Hate to think surgery is on its way, but may have to go there if this insurance pays for it. My other insurance would not and the nerve has decided to act up again. Back to the grind stone.

    I have four daughters and would the same. If the guy decides he wants to date our daughter he has to come ask us first or it's already a no. If you can get in the door you are lucky but be very prepared for a drill of a life time. I'm really hard on all the girls but I really want them to be happy and choose a wonderful man and not just settle for one. It's a day and night job. 1 is married and 2 in college and one in tenth grade. My son says im just terrible and need to learn to let go. But no way I don't stop being a mother.
    Get back to those blocks and get them sent in. Times a ticking. LOL
    I do feel your pain though.

    HELP! Mariposa's mail box is full and I can't send her a PM. I forgot to bring her address to NH with me and I want to mail my Chickies to her. So if any of you have her address please PM. Thank you so much.

    I LOVE THE CURLER CHICKEN. Too too cute.

    I am almost done with my fifth set and have the sixth at least ready to cut out the applique. I will be sending in one applique set, two multi colored embroidery designs, one blackwork design and two pieced block sets. that should cover me.

    Did not get much quilting done at all, but a young man knows who to watch out for if he does not behave with our daughter. So glad the week is here. Now to get some sleep tonight so can hit the quilting road again.

    I agree! Had a house full of kids and their friends, and am glad to see Monday, so I can get back in the swing of things!
    Lots to accomplish!

    I finished cutting all the appliques, ironed them down, now just need to stitch them before mailing. If I mail no later than Thursday, they will arrive at her door step on Saturday. Will get busy to finish. I just crashed last night and only did my pincushions because they were handwork and the football game was great to watch with DH. Will get busy here. One more embroidery design to do and then all six sets will be out the door. I still have the wonderful pickles to do again, salsa to make, and tomatores to can while getting a daughter off to college. It is so great to be able to be busy. Thank you Lord.
