    I have an extra Christmas block. I will send it to you, no trade needed.
    How about silk autumn leaves for your decor?

    My partner and I have got together and happy happy day, we can get our block done now. I am working on a bedspread quilt for my bed right now. Let's see..................my bed that I share with my DH. and two bostons. Sometimes they let me sleep on the bed, most of the time I end up right on the edge.
    sigh..............isn't life wonderful.........
    By the way I grew up in Oakland, across the bay from San Francisco. Earthquakes terrify me. I've been through so many and just never got used to them. You don't really think of them until one hits, then the terror starts. One time in Alameda, we had a pretty big one and my kids were on opposite sides of the house and I just stood there watching the chandeler swing back and forth. I couldn't make up my mind which child to go get. And then the aftershocks............

    I received a FQ swap but who ever sent it didn't send a screen name. I am posting a picture. I hope that who ever sent these FQ's will give their screen name so I know who to thank. These are really beautiful and I thank you.

    maybe those are the fq swap??? pretty fabrics though!

    I guess I am just one of the unshakeables. I was also fortunate .. my house had almost zero damage two or three ornaments for Halloween fell off my mantle. 7.0 earthquake. My sister her tv flew off the stand bookshelf tumbled and well she was terrified of those things. My hubby at the time was a structural engineer and he loves earthquakes and was well .. in big business when they come around. He also knew exactly what type of land our house stood on and what type of shaking we could expect. No such thing as an earthquake PROOF house but there are earthquake resistant buildings. We were safe there. And you made me laugh with the which kid to go get.. that came to mind often to me as mine were all over the place playing sports. if one hit.. which one do I go get first? interesting thought isn't it?

    block making today! pulling out my holiday fabrics and then will pick a block that works with them! yahooooo!!!

    Oksewnsew, you have my kind of luck. I'm glad I'm not the only one who is always faced with some kind of mess. My little white golden retriever got skunked one morning as we were going to the barn. I saw her take off towards the woods and just in front of her was some little black fuzzy critter that I was hoping was stray cat, but I caught glimpse of white on the tail and I knew it wasn't a kitty. Maggie barked once and then turned and came toward me shaking her head and blinking her eyes. Yep, in the face, I guess that's right at squirt height. Luckily, I escorted Maggie back to the house and put her in the back yard until I tended the horses. The only thing I had was a large can of petite dices tomatoes that I had bought for chili too. So she got rubbed good with tomatoes, I think the acid smell of the tomatoes cut the skunk. It didn't completely neutralize the skunk smell, thankfully I have some spray called Nature's Miracle that I use to spritz them in the summer - my dogs swim and fish daily in the summer and it's not good to shampoo them weekly so they always have a wet dog smell. Rubbed the Nature's Miracle in and you never would have known she was skunked. Now I wonder if she saw a skunk again it she would remember not to chase it?? I feel your pain!

    Two beautiful blocks. They are going to look great in your future projects. Are you collecting only certain color string blocks?

    RFC, my Dad always called skunks 'stinkin' kitties', good name for them! This one was potent, the smell is still in the are where he got Zoe`! Even after a hard, long rain yesterday evening & nite, and cold weather. A quilter mentioned putting moth balls along the fence, skunks don't like them.. But, I feed the squirrels and birds, not sure if that wud keep them away. She also mentioned, later, that orange or lemon peels spread around there keeps them away. I took some Real Lemon juice and sprayed it around down there, seemed to help.. Next time (which who knos) I'll use the hydrogen peroxide and Dawn to bath her..They say the hydrogen per. breaks down the oil in the scent and the Dawn washes it all away...The first time she got it, couple yrs ago, she chased the darn thing, and got it all over, this time she didn't see him but when she got up from her squat, guess he thot she was coming after him and UP went that darn tail!! right in the face. The full body one was awful to get rid of..I went thru a whole BIG can of mater juice and doggie soap. It is without a question the worst odor to remove...whew!!!

    My dog Oskar was a skunk lover. He loved to sniff their rears. and would come running in with the oil on his face..omg it was like a chemical warfare smell in the house.. horror of all horrors. NO shampoo worked from the pet store, no amount of tomato soup, nothing worked but a whole lot of baths. and time.. and prayers for NO RAIN while he still smelled or it was like getting fresh spayed all over again. Dawn seems to get the oil from oil spills of ducks so maybe it will work on skunks. sure as heck worth trying. and buy lots of everything. maybe you have a skunk lover too! (YIKES times two!)

    I finished my block today and will make another one on Friday to go with it.. I am unsure which fabric is the better choice so might as well make one of each and dotty thank you! I will gladly take your unused Christmas block.. what a wonderful surprise! oh and fall garlands might decorate my Waldo just nicely.. Waldo the jackalope is sans fall décor at the moment. I promisd the dh when he gifted him to me for my birthday well he was going to be decorated if he had to hang in my livingroom.. and I will keep up the decorating. if you have decorations that might work on Waldo please feel free to send them. He has those marvelous antelors and a small neck and a small spot between the antlers available for holiday décor. The more over the top the better he has a lot of holidays to plan for. busy busy .. rabbit.

    Ugh, there is nothing worse than skunk smell. I'll take horse manure, dog poo and just about anything over skunk stink.

    Oh man, me too. I cleaned the bathroom today, had to laff, there was tomato juice splattered everywhere...LOLO.. in hidden areas. Think I finally got it all. Of course it didn't help that she kept shaking her head!! I'm 5' and I found mater spots way up on the tile..lol Thot I'd rinsed everything down the other nite.. I'm sure the hydrogen peroxide & Dawn would be much easier to clean up..lol She's doing fine now - after dark I do check the yard before letting her out tho.

    I finished a block for my partner only to realize I go two of my swaps mixed up. I did a vintage fabric style block and its my wall hanging partner who wanted vintage and my partner here wanted more reds/whites/greens snowmen santas.. what was I thinking??? so she will get both lol .. darn it. This is where I should write things down. How brat like of me to mix things up I always mix things up!!!

    Today is such a beautiful day and its MINE ALL MINE no clinic, no runs to the market nothing just sitting at the dinner table sewing. How much better than that could it go?? I was sitting here thinking of all things.. of candy. I love licorice jelly bellies.... why did that come to mind I am not hungry in want of one.. but I think its one of the less loved candies. What is your favorite? Like as a kid we had boxes of ribbon candy all the time at Christmas but now as an adult short of enjoying how pretty they look I doubt I would even be tempted to eat any of those. blick all big and sticky and hard and lol... sure are pretty though.

    I was always a black licorice lover. I love those little black jelly beans. I would pick them out, and no one else wanted them. I grew up in Chicago, and ate just about every color licorice there was. Now in Tennessee I mostly see the red, and some black. Didn't mean to go on, but it brought back memories of a time long gone.
