    16 stitches to the inch....who quilts like that??? I agree urgodschild2, I struggle to get even stitches without even thinking about how many stitches per inch I can do. If I worried about that, I wouldn't be hand quilting as it would take all the enjoyment and relaxation I get from it away.

    buslady, your DQ just has the binding to be done but I am going to hold it to post until after my weekend stall as I want to have it on display with my other dolls quilts. No hurry with mine though

    RE 16 stitches to the inch - I guess I've been reading too much Elm Creek Quilts!

    Lynnie, I worked on your DQ all weekend and it is almost done. I am not happy with the corners. You will see when you get it, but by the time I finish it up I hope to hide the wonkiness of them. LOL I tried a technique I had never done, but had been thinking about for a loooong time. If I could have got my serger to do some gathering for me it might look better. Talk about using the ripper. Oye!! So much going on that I am having trouble finding time to sew. When I have time, I am too tired. So, a little here, a little there, I had to go out of town Sunday for DGD & DGS wrestling match and to a meeting on Monday, both days were 2 hour driving each way. So I took a bunch of hand work with me. Life saver, as I hate long drives, seems like such a waste of time. Prescious time I will never get back. LOL DH drives for me and I sew. Or read. Or both. Well, I hope to get your DQ in the mail by end of week, but lets say next Monday, just so I don't have to appologize! LOL Oh, I did one thing. I went to the post office today to see what the best way to package for overseas delivery. Line was Looong!! Left. Got a salad for lunch and went back. No line. But no help. Lady behind the counter didn't want to be bothered with looking it up. "I think it is $XXX" I told her I needed to know. Next amount was 4X the first. I came back here and signed up for USPS home postage program. The answer was right there. I think I have a new favorite program. OH, and they put $5 free postage that can be used in the next 30 days!! Whoop Whoop

    buslady, yours will go in the mail next Monday too, should take about 2 weeks in transit.

    Have had a lovely day, got my December DQ from dabbler312 and it's gorgeous. Then had lunch and went to movies (with ladies from our Thursday morning walking/coffee group) to see 'Les Miserables' with our gorgeous Aussie hunk Hugh Jackman, the movie is fantastic !

    Love being retired

    I am doing that swap! it sounds like fun making placemats or potholders or all sorts of other things and the time frame for me works like mid march. I can commit to that. kick myself later but I can commit to that!

    Krystyna, honey child you just stretch and bend any direction ya all like. Me these bones dont stretch that well. and I can big grin here stitch five stitches per inch and evenly. just give me a pen and let me premark that fabric and absolutely I can get that nice straight line stitched for you. hey I have did this in my hospital bed last year so I know it to be true

    doll quilts ok show and tell time girls .. this is the other half of the fun watching all the new fun quilts come in. What a quilt show we would have all of them over the year in one place..fill a large auditorium I think walls of little bits of love. yuppers.. I would love to see a picture of that

    I just put mooretll's quilt in the mail. IMHO I found just the perfect fabric for her, so it's four colors not three. Looking forward to next month. Paper piecing will be my choice, because I really don't want to, but change is good. So they say.

    I would have thought Dragonfly had received my doll quilt by now. oh dear.

    new technique? um how about regular technique. if I sign up next month I need a flexible partner. I wont send hodge podge to anyone. I am barely any good at regular. its working on getting better each month at what I do.. that is what I strive for. a grand goal in my spot. so tada! getting better at .. finishing binding with smaller stitches that hide better. that is a goal anyways. not new but now a challenge.

    I wish I had a giant slushie right now. I am thinking a nice fresh orange one on super crushed ice.. oh yeah. oh I am on water restriction. rationing for life. joy. someone drink one for me, my treat. make it a super sized one if you hate fresh orange how about.. rootbeer? I cant have that either. put ice cream in it (cant eat that either am I having fun yet) hurry sign up!

    Well, Lynnie, I spent my time watching Criminal Minds and ripping out a whole bunch of stitching on your DQ. Just not happy with it. My goal is to redo it tonight and tomorrow night. It took me a couple of hours to do it wrong the first time. Hopefully, it won't take me that long to do it right the second time!! I am sew excited about this one, I hope you like it, cause i do. Not sure I would do another, and absolutely not a big one. Well, maybe. Saturday, our quilting group starts up again. We take a break usually Oct, Nov & Dec. I want to take it and show it off before I mail it. So, prob mail on Tuesday. I get pd on Tuesday. LOL Our group is making a quilt called "Accross America" this round. Of course, we are like most on the board here; do what you want. It is more of a social event than anything else. Actually, if you wanted to see the progress, go to "Quilters on the Move" on Facebook and "like" us. Not a lot of activity right now, but starting next week, I am sure there will be lots of activity. Pictures. I know how we like pictures!

    If you are talking about the way Criminal Minds ended, YES!! Who doesn't love that kid? I felt so sorry for him, it was like.......WTF.......did that really just happen? I gotta say, that was a very well planned ending, I think it shocked EVERYONE!!!
    If you are talking about the ripping, not horrible, but sad just as well. When you see what I am doing, you will understand. Not like just ripping out a seam. LOL That could be consideded a hint, but more likely a tease.!

    I was talking about Criminal Minds -- not ripping, although that is often horrible, too!
    It was so weird that both that show and the one after it had suicides in it. Seriously, what we watch on television has changed so much. I know I'm old but I remember when you couldn't even show a toilet on tv -- and when Lucy was pregnant, they only showed her above the waist. Now ... oooof! I'd rather keep my eyes on my stitching!

    I do think Derek is a hottie no doubt! But I'm kinda with you Krystyna, I think tv has gone a bit to far out there with all they show. I wish there were more shows more values and laughter than all the who killed who and the lack of moral values. But I guess the good stuff doesn't sell ads. Even the news is so dreadful some days.

    On lighter note.... I should be mailing Quiltermomof3's dq! weather permitting! I may have to send it by boat if it doesn't quilt raining! ugh I now have water front property! not by choice

    I agree Krystyna, I only watch it long enough to satisfy my Derek 'crush', don't like the content at all, way too violent most times for me to watch, gives me nightymares and I'd rather be dreaming about quilts

    First piece of business --
    A HUGE THANK YOU to the Lovely Lisa B

    for everything she has done for the Doll Quilt Swap.

    She came to our rescue and did it with great grace and aplomb!


    (Sound: THUNDEROUS APPLAUSE AND CHEERING)

    Second piece of business:
    I'm back.
    (Sound: Bwaahahahaha evil laugh)

    I listened to your whining -- um, I mean concerns -- about the new technique challenge so that is in the trash heap. For now.


    So ... I have devised a new torture for you to enjoy ... sign up is here

    Oh my goodness....I got bored with Criminal minds this week and turned it off to quilt. LOL. I guess I should have stayed to the end. Now I have to watch it on Demand. At least the ending. Don't tell me that my darling bright man is dead I will just never watch criminal minds again if that is true.
