    Congrats with the Accuquilt Go Dusty - I don't have one but they look to be a lot of fun; I especially like that you can do applique type cut-outs. Have fun playing with your new toy.

    BOM working on

    this is a copy of the BOM quilt I'm working on this year through our local quilt shop. It's done in civil war fabrics. It's a lot of flying geese blocks - I finally broke down and purchased one of those tools "Wing Clippers" they're made for the flying geese block.

    oh Dabbler that is awesome... I think you will end up with a killer quilt. I saw the elenore spell check burns barn quilt at my quilt shop in Sonora. Love it. Ask do you have a class for that? no just a book. well thanks for nothing! it sure was a pretty quilt though. One day I might find that barn book for a bit less than the 28.00 they wanted and make one myself. one day. after all the other projects I have signed up for. Just downloaded my fat cat owl pattern for the month. Now to get Dustysmom to accucut my pieces for me. all those scalloped edges.. ugh! I could use some cats cut out happen to have that pattern dear? doubt it is one of the 20 you start with. squares are good too. charm squares. like if you wanted to do a postage stamp quilt cut 1000 of everything with your handy dandy machine. yahoo!!!

    hey, brat~ i have the seated cat from accuquilt go. either send me fabric or tell me what you want and how many. it's absolutely dynamite for things like that! i can get my binding cut in a flash! the 2.5" is probably my favorite die. cut my own strips, then squares, slick, mama!!

    Brat I'm actually waiting for the new Eleanor Burns book "El's Kitchen" to come out - I preordered way back in November; it's based blocks from the thirty's. On another note - I have all of the barn segments for Quilt in a Day saved on our DVR machine - Brian keeps asking me when we can delete them and all the Love of Quilting segments that are saved - "NEVER - I haven't finished that quilt yet" truth be told I haven't even started it - we have well over 100 quiting segments saved - it's my someday project. I'll keep my eye out for the barn book for you - every once in a while you come across them for little or nothing at a tag sale if you're interested. Her directions are super simple to follow along with; I've done her sampler and underground railroad quilts.

    Nancia the colors are all gold/tan/cream/brown/black - the photo doesn't do it justice. They offered a batik or a Kansas Trouble color option as well; all are very beautiful - the civil war just looked a little more timeless.

    I do want to sign up it's just that I don't have a clue what I would wish for at the moment; I still have a couple of weeks to decide.

I only need one! oh you would prefer I sit there and wait patiently with the other good children? I would but Nancia keeps kicking me, Jaba already has hers finished I know it and well I never get to have any fun. your not a fun babysitter Dustysmomma.

    thank you. jamie, for defending my honor! ( sorry then, was that you i kicked?) and unh, further more, how , ebrat do you expect someone as sweet and darling and (able to be bribed) uh, upstanding as dusty's sweet darlin mama, to be nice to you when you call her mean things like, a bad babysitter, i think she's a wonderful babysitter, and that's why she likes me better than you! oh, and i whipped out some marinara sauce and ATE the gosh darm limp noodle you gave her.
    oh, and the whole reason i was answering your bleat, is to tell alberta i would be honored and delighted to be her partner in canada. thank yoy very much. humphf. ( you know, every time i put that little cursor hand up to the emoticons and choose the laughing one, i stick my finger in it's nose. he's gotta be some kinda natural born idjit to keep laughing after that! go ahead, you try it....)

    Sigh.....I've been off on a pouting spree today. Ok, I tell a lie. I didn't come home for lunch because we had a cookout at work. Then we had a function for my boyfriend's office this evening. Came home long enough to let him get out of the tie & jacket & then we went out to look at luggage. Picked him up 5 awesome ties, new socks for me, and a couple belts for the newly employed child-o-mine. I'm whooped. Entirely too much walking in the boots today. It's almost midnight, so why am I still up? I think it's time for some valerian and my pillow.

    Bratty le pew, I'm in like Flynn. I've ordered a new box of dry noodlers for you young lady!

    Oh, and as someone with a little Canuck blood in her, I'd be happy to have the Canadian partner as well. Actually, I guess the proper negative slang for that line of my heritage is a Pepsi. That explains why I hate Coke I guess, lol.

    OK, I'm going to bed before I get any sillier.

    You guys what did I do? (batting eyes looking every bit the innocent).. I am always in trouble. I guess I could just sit this one out.. no one wants me, everybody hates me, think I'll eat some worms. really big fat ones. little tiny skinny ones. look how they squiggle and squirm.. I'll bite off their heads and suck out their guts and throw the skins away.. oh nobody knows that I eat worms.. forty fifty times a day.. oh yeah. so there.

Dustysmomma I want that one ok? you know.. that one (wink winkle).. ok not that one? sigh hows about that one? ok perfect partner be ready for me! lucky lucky you LMAO you get the.. brat. bet they sit back drawing straws on ok if you get her I will take her from you don't you worry.. well I am still playing so just grab your chair backs and prepare for "le brat" designs. Surely to take you by storm! tada! oh yeah! hurry up swap this is taking forever to start. good thing today I am sewing a tropical tablerunner to fill my time. Its going to be so pretty I might just make two. One subtle one bold and this way whomever I partner with will end up with the runner that fits them the best. tada! what a good idea. They are going to be pretty little spots of sunshine I think

    Well, we're at 9. That's over half the total we ended up with last time. It looks like we're going to have a good turnout again!
