    Robert, the Sinter block reminds me of my father-in-law. He would get an orange from Sint as a child In Amsletveen, and we got Drost chocolate oranges every year as long as he was alive.
    I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.

    Robert, I've finished your Christmas Star block and will try to get it out tomorrow. Can't wait to see what Santa you pair with it.

    That is awesome. Isn't funny that the things we see, smell, sounds remind us of the fondest memories.
    Thanks for the note

    IDK, I was wondering about that also. But, maybe they are just busy with life. I also can't wait for my partner next month. I also had lots of fun thinking about the theme, picking out the fabrics and then finding a quilt block pattern that fits. Or trying out a block I haven't tried before. I love the mystery of a block designed and made by someone else.

    Judith1005--I know life gets in the way but it's like a ghost town except for couple people,
    I know what you mean I think the longest for me was finding the perfect block, and challenging myself to do it, cause I picked a block I had never done before, and was so excited when I got my block the not knowing what was coming except for the colors. So much fun!!

    I think things kinda slow down towards the end of the month. Then the excitement for the next month starts and more people post. Just a thought. I love this swap. It really has given me the opportunity to try new blocks. Sometimes they turn out good and sometimes not so good. But everyone here is very supportive. Can't wait to get my new partner for November.

    I'm so glad I found this thread I think I was posting in the wrong place. Hello everyone so glad to be a part of this group. I sent my first swap block out in October and can't wait for Novembers swap. I didn't take a photo of it so I hope my partner will post it. There are some lovely blocks I'm hoping to get to try all sorts of new ones.
    Everyday is a good day for Quilting!

    I heard from Dot and she is ok and so is Lynnie. There were lots of trees down by Dot and Lynnie is recovering from her knee surgery and her place is not damaged. As far as I can tell from whom I know of over there, Krystina of the DQ swap lost everything. Sad.

    Message from Roberto Fabuloso:

    ... back in the hospital!! I can't get on board in the hospital: Yes back in and probably 5 or 6 days. My heart went into V-cat ( pumping at super speed and blood not getting out of chamber. So they are doing a angiogram, with contrast dye ukp the artery in the groin to put wires in the values and chambers. If they find a block they will use the angiplasty to put in a stint if they do.

    I do have a quilt for Krystyna. I will ask Cathy to pull it out of the space bag of quilts.

    I'm better but they want to do this before I can go home.
    Love you
    Also, please say that for those that I am doing prjects for they will get done as soon as I get home. Beth you BC blocks are almost done 2 to go and I more table runner for my Aunt and I will ship them off to you.
    tam-Moo the santas for your friend have all the santa robes are ready and soon as her backgounrd fabric gets here will get them done, And Jean I have 3 more hummers to go for you, and Nelco I have you New Mexico flag in the memory and ready to go as soon as I get home.

    As Robert mentioned, I am collecting quilts for Krystyna and her community in Long Beach, Long Island, NY.
    She lost her home. There is no power, shortage of clean water and gas. I have a beautiful quilt I made from Boom 6 that I can part with. And some UFOs I can quickly finish. I hope to drive out there (30 miles from NYC) as soon as things settle down. Yes, there is another storm coming Wednesday!

    Hi all,
    Newbee3 and I are November swap partners. I posted a photo of the blocks I made for her over in the Community_Groups album.

    She wanted any block in fall colors.

    Thanks for looking.
    best,
