    nancy in louisiana-- just need to bind and then your dq will be on it's way to you! i am very put out with parts of it and i now consider it part of my learning curve. i tried a mini-quilt and i'm just not accurate enough to get the results i want. if you can hitch a ride on that galloping horse going by it will improve the look of the quilt immensely! LOL (sad, but true). i hope you will enjoy it nonetheless, and know it was made for heart to heart nancy(i)s!

    Today is a good day to stay in and sew! We didn't get that much -- and I am worried about my sisters. One is in Ipswich, MA and they have huge drifts and it was still coming down. The other one is on the north shore of Long Island and when I asked how much she got, the response was "A lot."

    Hoping everyone is safe and warm!

    Anyway, here is the view from our bedroom window. The tan thing to the left of the big tree is the infamous mailbox bank.

    I have received my doll quilt yesterday from Krystyna, and it is pretty awesome!!!! Love the color combination and the quilting is nicely done! I also received a lovely silk scarf and a delicious jar of Wild Beach Plum Jam, that we had for breakfast. Thank you so much, Krystyna.

    Yep. I still have a little bit of that precious jam left. I also have some of the last jam I made from my raspberry and blackberry bushes -- and some has chocolate in it, but I don't know which is which. Never got a chance to label it.
    Ipswich is so pretty, isn't it? I haven't been up to visit for a long time, but I'm hoping to go this summer.

    Nancia -- take your time -- no sweat. And I know I will love it because of the thought and time and effort you put into it. And these little quilts are supposed to be opportunities to reach out and try new things. I'm in Texas this week so won't be home until Fri or so.

    Post office alert -- I know the rates went up, but this is ridiculous ... I went yesterday to mail out one block for the scrappy block swap. I folded it like I usually do and put it into a 5x7 manilla envelope (no clasp, just like I was told), and put two forever stamps on it. That had always been enough. My regular counter lady retired, new one at the helm. Just to be sure, I asked if I had enough postage. She pinched it, weighed, pushed at images on her touch screen (her nails too long to make regular contact) and told me I need $2.25 MORE!!!! Said it was considered a parcel since didn't have any paper in it. I said "But I've done it like this every month for the last several years!" She shook her head at me and said "No way .." That's the only post office locally. So, that's it for block swaps for me -- $3.25 is a little bit above and beyond the usual 2 forever stamps.

    Nancy, I suspect you won't be alone in this decision. Do you have a postage scale? If you do, you might think about weighing your package, looking at the cost online and if those forever stamps work ... toss it into the mailbox and bypass the stinky fingernail lady. Seriously, the post office is ruining small business.

    I found it's not so much the weight; it's the size. Once you get past a certain size they call it a parcel instead of a letter. No wonder they are going broke. No one is going to use them when they do that. A lot of things I order online now come through FedEx next day; seems to be cheaper than the P.O. (I'm not saying anything against postal workers; they are caught in the middle with all the regulations they are told to enforce.) I for one am glad they are eliminating Saturday mail. I didn't grow with six days a week mail. We don't need everything to be open 24/7 to "accommodate any of us." Like grocery stores. People need to plan ahead a bit. We need to use our resources wisely.

    doll quilt

    I received the neatest quilt today from TammyB .......it is so cute! She tied the 3 colors, red, white and blue, with Valentine's Day and came up with this adorable doll quilt. I LOVE it!!! Such nice quilting, too. Even the back is red, white, and blue. Love, love, love it!! Patriotic is great for me.

    She also sent me lots of gifts....emery boards, note pads, springtime towel, hand gel, and 4 fat quarters. What a nice package to open on an ugly weather day in Cleveland. (I think I'm spoiled )

    Thank you, TammyB, you did beautiful work on my doll quilt and I enjoyed having you for a partner.

    Sue, so glad it arrived safely and that you like it. I enjoyed making it just for you. You were a wonderful partner and I'm glad I got to know you better. Hope we stay in touch.

    I missed signing up for the February DQ Swap so I'll catch up again in March. Everyone on this board has been great!
