UGH...I agree with Janice..I wish connecting threads would bring this pattern back in any of the colors they had!!
    Joan this is really pretty that ted is awesome with it. I also agree I wish this fabric would come back it's pretty in all the color combination.

Turns out I was shipped at least a 100 of bubble wrap Priority Mail envelopes! LOL! Guess I will share the wealth and restock my local post office.
    hahahahaha thats pretty funny I wonder if this automatically registers you for the next 50 booms.

    LOL, Billi!

    Janice, glad to know my package got to you without bursting at the seams! It was stuffed so tight.

    I did the the same thing the lst time I ordered!! I didn't get 100 but got 20 because I just asked for 2. The next time I "noticed" the little note at the top that says they come in 10 each packages! lol I cant imagine getting 100! But hey Billis right...you must sign up for the next 80 booms!! How funny

    Sewbizgirl, you couldn't have fit one more thread in your package, much less another f8. It was a wonder to behold. And it was a wonder it didn't simply explode when I opened it. You're the Packing Queen!

    Bite your collective tongues, boomers! I'll be retired (and now obviously hiding out from all of you crazy people) in the New Mexico desert long before we get to 20 more.

    Beautiful libster, I don't know the name, but there was a recent thread asking about that block, maybe the poster got an answer.

    Thanks, Kass. That's where I first saw this. Nobody there knew what the name of it was either. It looks simple, but it's a pain in the rear to make. Too many thick seams for me.

    Really pretty block. I saw it on the other thread too. It looks like a simple 9 patch layout. Why not call it a winding ribbon 9 patch until someone can discover the original name?

    Pretty block, Libster. I love that quilt that Kass linked to. Maybe the actual block doesn't have a name. Sometimes only the quilt has a name with the more modern patterns.

    Janice - sounds like you've got a job as hostess for the foreseeable future. I know I really appreciate the effort you put in coordinating these swaps. BTW, could you use a few bubble wrap envelopes?

    Been dealing with snow and cars breaking down or getting stuck or going off the road. Hopefully will get in mail tomorrow. Sorry for the delay. Life has not been fun. Now I have a cold to top it all off.; That's what happens when you help push people out of the snow and then shoveling it.

    QM, hope your cold doesn't last long. Can you snuggle in for a few days.

    we have had snow and rain here. The one night when I was driving my sister to my house after we had spent another day at the hospital my car was sliding all over and the roads were packed with a late rush hour. Was a nervous wreck by the time we arrived home.

    Wish I could, but work calls. They have finally plowed our subdivision I am told, so won't have to deal with that issue for a bit until the next storm comes in.

    Missouri Dept of Transportation has issued a NO DRIVING warning for Fri night into Sat. Suppose to get freezing rain and sleet. The weather map shows Missouri ALL in purple..Something tells me I wont be going to work Friday! Fell down 2 steps last Friday with my grandson. Thought I was ok but shoulder keep bothering me so had to have an MRI today. Can anyone tell me how people can invent things like copy machines, cell phones, heart transplants and they cant make a comfortable BIGGER machine to have an MRI in?? I hate those things...my shoulder is really painful and they wedge it in there and say "now dont move for 20 minutes"....yeah right...Hope its just a pinched nerve! And glad the kid wasnt hurt when I slammed him into door then fell! LOL His comment....BAD grandma!!

    Hope nothing serious is wrong with your shoulder, Joan. Did they see anything with the MRI? Those are so scary... all that weird noise. Esp. if you are claustrophobic. I had one of my head a couple of weeks ago because of the vertigo. If I wasn't totally drugged up when they did it, I might have freaked out in that tube. The operator covered my eyes with a cloth... I was thankful for that.

    BAD Grandma... Ha. Poor little guy!

    I have to have meds if I have an MRI. I'm claustrophobic enough that those things send my anxiety through the roof!
    Joan, stay in and stay safe. Sounds like a perfect opportunity to quilt.

    My grandmother slipped on ice and fell with my daughter (35 years ago). Fortunately neither one was hurt. Hopefully there's nothing seriously wrong with your shoulder.

    Wont get results till maybe tomorrow. Im not claustrophobic at all but the way they had my shoulder wedged in there and told me to keep my right arm straight was very painful...my hand had been tingling before and by the time the 20 minutes was up it was really hurting! She offered meds before but would have had to have a driver so I went alone but DO have a couple pain perscriptions for a few days! A 67 year old woman on a skinny 12" board dont match! LOL

    I told the "handsome" tech he needed to warn people of the noises because I thought at one point there was a jack hammer in there with me! The music sure helps but I hope I never have to have another one!

    It seems the post office and me are having a bit of a battle. I ordered the padded envelopes on Monday and they still aren't here. Guess it is a trip to PO with a label ready to go.
    Here are my fabrics. They are Kaffee Fassetts. No black and no white.
