    Just popping in. Hello everyone! The doll quilts are all as gorgeous as ever!

    Was I thrilled to see the lovely picture of Krystyna grinning out from under her big quilt! Krystyna, I'm so delighted to see you looking so well and back in the swing of things will the doll quilt swap.

    Barbara, what a fantastic job you have done putting the quilt together, the sashing holds all those blocks together so beautifully. And how many miles have all those blocks travelled? Krystyna, no need to count sheep... zzz... z z z

    DebbyG and Dabbler - what wonderful little quilts. Love them both!
    Muv- we miss you! No need to count sheep is truer than you know. Last night I was curled up in my quilt and looking at each of the blocks thinking I'd write to each and every one of the quilters and ... *clunk*! Sound asleep.

    Received my DQ from Lynnie25, I think I got that right, not a good speller). It is B E A U T I F U L ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! Really has an "Aussie" Flair. I've been showing it to everyone. I love the story of the dragonfly buttons. Thre is one on the "map" where she lives, fishes and vacations!!! How cool is that? And, do you see the label?
    Whoop!!! Whoop!! ((fist pump X 2)).
    Mine is in the mail, I hope she would get it just about any time now!! I hope she likes it as much as I like mine!! Great DQ, this one is hanging on a wall that everyone will see when they enter. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

    Oh, did you see the fabric? She sent me a nice big piece of the backing fabric!!

    That quilt is amazing! And the fabric is too precious. What a label! Aussies rule!

    wow! i was evidently dropped from this thread, but i think i have caught up, mostly. i am still working on nancy's dq. i worked from 1 to 6:30 last night/ this a.m. and spent as much (or more!) time frogging as sewing and have precious little to show for all that effort! i am hoping it will be something that nancy will like, especially after the long wait! sorry!!!
    krystyna-- glad to see you happy and in a bed of your own! the dogs must be so pleased you moved out of theirs! i think you can expect them to sleep in your bed for awhile. turn-about is fair play! rotflmfbo!!

    I get dropped all the time and have to log in all over again. If not logged in, I don't get updates. Crazy and inconsistent.
    Was worried about you, Nancia -- haven't heard anything and didn't see you on the Feb DQ signup. Wondered if you were ok.

    Just got delivery of a replacement mattress. The first one we ordered was like sleeping in a bouncy room. If someone sighed, you'd go boinging all over the place. Thank goodness Bob's had a program where if you don't like it after 30 days, let them know and get something else. I sure hope we like this one. It's memory foam, which I'm not too sure about, but time will tell.

    As for those stinky dogs, I can't keep them off the bed. And the worse part is that they take up the whole thing! Feeney is like a giant warm log. Once he finds his spot, you can't move him for the world. Daisy is another story. She alternates her "must have's" for sleep. If it is very cold, she MUST crawl under the quilt and attempt to sleep between my legs. Not my favorite thing at all. Not. Alternately she takes over the middle pillow and sleeps with her butt in one of our faces. That is, except when Rod gets up to use the bathroom. Then she takes over his pillow. When he returns, she growls and tries to bite him. There has to be an easier way to sleep.

    Krystyna, I feel understand the lack of bed space due to those lovable mutts! It is amazing how much room they can take and then become like cement logs you can't move! We are looking for a new mattress and I told my husband we should go Calif King and maybe, just maybe there would be enough room for me and him to sleep as comfortable as the dogs do! lol I doubt it though.

    Look what arrived this morning, my gorgeous DQ from buslady and oh my there is so much work gone into this beauty. I love the fabrics and the gathering strip, how on earth did you do that buslady. Second photo is all the extra goodies that came with the DQ, some lovely fabrics, a monthly calendar planner and pen and some candy which I will need to hide from DH. Thanks again Onalee for being such a great swap partner.

    I am so glad you like it. I had a ball making it. And added to my stash, it was necessary to get some fabric that would work just perfect with my idea. LOL That's my story.

    I received my DQ from Robin today. love the red and tan together. It looks like the harlequin prints
    that are used during Mardi Gras. Love the tiny porcelain doll, (we discovered we both collect dolls). Then there
    was a DQ pattern (fcalled the Evening Star), a bee's wax needle thingy. She also sent me M&Ms. It was great
    fun to be her partner this month. She finished the quilt with a blue backing that she brought to the front and finished the quilt. She also included a very pretty 'lacy qpplique on the front of the quilt.

    Thanks for posting both your quilt and mine. I'll forgive you for no label, looks like you have your
    cramping little hands full with the wedding quilt.
    Thanks again.

    What wonderful quilts! Love them so much! Onalee is that light blue gathered?

    Lisa, we have a King. Don't know if it's from California or not but I feel like I'm sleeping on a football field. And despite the size, there is no room for all of us thanks to those stinkers!

    Prayers for tomorrow, please! We are meeting a new lawyer - who will hopefully tell us he can extract the max from the insurance companies -- and then the SBA guy who will hopefully tell us that we can borrow enough to put up a modular home. Or ... we will eventually be living in the garage!

    i am alive and well, finally! just re-current bouts of whatever it was, and i was dropped for not talking enough--oh, my! prepare for the apocalypse!! never thought THAT day would come, lololololol!!! anyway, i've been snowed under and am taking february off to catch up! last night and into this a.m. worked on nancy's dq. will do more tonight. i am working during vampire hours and no interruptions. yup, i'm a night owl and it takes nothing to get me back into the dark. dh likes when i am in the bed while he sleeps, and whither i goest there goest the animals, too, so i watch shows on netflix. i prefer to be sewing but sometimes that's not an option. once in a while the animals spill over to his side then he just pushes them back. my 20yr old cat sleeps on my shoulder and head, tiger sleeps on the other side and the dogs fill in any gaps. sure is cozy! may be part of the reason i don't sleep much at night. they are all so spoiled they wouldn't dream of sleeping in their own beds if i'm in bed.

    I wouldn't mind if my cat would sleep in bed with me. Nooooooo, not my Chessie. She walks around my head, gets on my dresser and turns on the light, throws my glasses on the floor and sometimes turns on the cpap. Then she combs my hair, well that actually feels pretty good, and washes my face. She don't come near me any other time. She sits on DH lap, but not mine. She actually does sleep at my feet, not touching me, but right on the corner of the bed. If my foot peeks out from under the covers, it is fair game. I have been woken up to a cat attacking my foot more than once. Like I said, other than that, I don't see much of her. Oh, on the rare occasion that she does get close, if I try to pet her or anything, she bolts. It all has to be on HER terms. LOL

    I'm part of the dog pack - I'm alpha in our house and if that Mr. Beasley thinks he's going to sleep in the same bed as me he's is in for a rude awakening. When he stands on his hind legs he stands almost as tall as me (5'9.5") it would be like having another person in the bed with us. As soon as Beasley gets back in from doing his morning routine he goes back to bed on my side which he thinks is his; when we're both at work he lays on the bed.
    Be good to yourself - do one thing each day that makes you smile.

    Well we have to many critters! I live in 'animal house' for real. We have 5 cats, 4 dogs, 1 rabbit and 1 chickens. Of course the rabbit and chickens are outside 24/7. Two big dogs are out most of the time and two little ones ae in most. Then the cats, well they rule the roost! Yes know about about walking on your head, knocking things off the dresser at night, sleeping at your feet and fuss if you invade their space.

    Just had to share pics of the DQ sitting all pretty in my office at work! Perfect for this little table I have.
