    SOOOOO glad ya'all are on the mend, so to speak.. Just take care of that ol' ticker. Another surprise is coming your way, be on the watch...probably about Monday or Tues..

    OK....it is almost the middle of the month, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE - everyone in the swap PLEASE make contact with your partners. Everyone should have heard by now. I know there are some that really are a whiz on their machines and get their blocks done early in the month, but not to contact your partner is just not acceptable. I know life happens, but take 5 mins to let people know what is going on. IF you see you aren't able to make a block for your partner, at least let ME know thru PM

    Don't let your partner down, just let them know what's going on with you. I know this month is a busy one, but we all knew this month was coming and stayed in the swap, so do your partner the honor of contacting her. Thanks. Hope all is well with everyone.

    We had snow last Thurs/Friday, I was in hawg heaven, so to speak..had 5 days of frigid temps too. Today it made it to 37, I still have quite a bit of snow in the yd, but it's looking kinda messy! Da dawgs just don't care where they walk..LOLO I told them to stay close to the house, but they didn't listen, go figure.. Supposed to rain/32 degs...tonite/tomorrow. But on the 20th saying some very frigid temps headed this way, going to be the coldest in years..we shall see, Oklahoma weather can change in a second!! I just want SNOW...heee heee heee...

    I guess I've gotten too used to doing the Boom swaps with a 4 month turn around-- I better get sewing! It may be next weekend before I can get my blocks started, but I promise they'll be mailed by Dec. 31.

    This weekend is solely dedicated to "Christmasing". I have tonight to work on some unfinished presents, tomorrow morning to clean, tomorrow afternoon is hubby's office Christmas party, and Sunday is church and gift exchange with my best friend. Shew! I am pooped just thinking about it.
    The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow. Do good anyway.

    Finally Snow! That was a good Christmas present for you. You probably were sitting out side having coffee and watching the dogs. I can see it. LOL. We had a little snow, but didn't stay around. It was gone the xext day, but bently loved it. Can you believe I got all my santas done and have 4 more new ones for someone in OK. Going to get Natasha's out to Austrailia. Everyday is a gift to be able to get us and do the things you love.
    Hugs Friend,
    Roberto

    Oksewnsew, I hope you get your quilt block by the middle of next week. With the holidays you never know, but it's on its way to you since yesterday. I enjoyed making it, but it is not perfect as in it has a few flaws. It is pretty and Christmas y though. (not sure Christmas y is a word) I am learning more with each block, and that is why I am here. lol.... Well, that and nice folks.

    Merry Christmas!
    Everyone

    I think everyone will get it done this time! after the massive rush for the holidays .. there is like this huge amount of free time that is like a gift to yourself right? same amount of time we have on a regular month but suddenly after the push push push it seems like OMG where did all this ME time come? love that part.

    I sent my block thinking it got there today .. hope it does! I had a lot of fun making it and well since everything I do is absolute perfection I think everyone should be perfect. or perhaps you should leave your glasses off and view my blocks from say across the room.. looks like everything matches up right/ of course it does. Glasses should be .. disallowed so we all get .. that perfect vote! Today I worked on a center for a round robin got that done and 2/3rds of a wall hanging for another swap.. feeling pretty on top of things.. today lol. tomorrow will have more challenges to finish. like the two aprons I have more than half done, need ties that is it. why I avoid those, no idea.. is it just me? you start one project and hope around to other ones before you get back to finish some of them?

    Here today... why what a lucky bunch we are.

    Brat,

    I did receive your blocks today and they are lovely. I'm sure they will fit right in with the others to make a wonderful quilt. Thank you so much for your hard work on them. I have identified the fabrics I want to use in yours but have not settled down at the sewing machine to make them. I promise though they will be mailed before the end of the month. I'm on crunch time with a couple Christmas gifts I need to get done. Oh, also the craft faire went well. Not as well as last year, but I don't think we had the traffic we did at last year's faire. Worth going to, just wishing for more.

    Howdy neighbor!!!!!!!
    Thank you for the snow.......it's a first for me, as growing up in the Central Valley of California! we just had one dusting of snow.....when I was five!!!!! Lol!!!! I did the mandatory snow angel, bought the mandatory long johns, and of course my rubber boots!!!!!

    Our chickens had never seen snow as they are only a few months old, so when it began, they were chasing and trying to eat it as they thought they were bugs...hee hee hee! but we do have one hen who stubbornly does NOT want to walk anywhere in the snow. It is HILARIOUS!!!!!

    I am almost done with my partners December block......hope she likes it, as it is the first time I have tried this type of block. Will post after she receives it.

    Hope everyone is having a great Christmas season! love you all. I love seeing all the creativity and warm thoughts on this special place.

    December Block Received

    I received a beautiful Star Block from Groovy Pieces! She did a great job! Gail I'm working on yours, hope to finish it today and get it the mail on the way to church tomorrow morning!

    That is if I can get it done in the next hour or so! The day has just disappeared on my, grocery shopping in morning. By the time everything was put up, had lunch and it's after 2 pm. Will need to start supper about 4:30 so I'm off to sew!

    Gail I love the block! Thanks!

    Hugs,
    Cajun

    ABDC -- I'm almost done with your block! I put the sewing machine on the block today and I'm pretty happy with how it looks -- hope you like it! I just need to add some details and get it ready for mailing on Monday!

    patiently waiting for next months swap tap tap tap of the toes (ah the brat is back!).

    I just posted in block of the month a new quilt along . check it out .. no swapping involved but a grand learning experience on making a Medallion quilt. Today we will be toasty too think almost 40 before the wind hits. the snow is now ice on the ground wishing it all would go away. I am not so much a fan of snow. I can not go outside without help if I am to walk on it. So snow snow go away don't come back another day! Today I will finish my last tiny Christmas shopping. I need one item. ok its the only Christmas shopping I am doing at all. No black Fridays for me nor crowds. oh heck no. I hope you all are finished and relaxing now too.. something wonderful about sitting back and saying I don't have to do one more thing. This makes oodles of time for quilting then

    I finished my 2 blocks also and one wasn't perfect even with my glasses off, tried new blocks and just couldn't get the points to line up right but the block still looks nice to me. Hope my partner is ok with it

    oh GOODIE! I can hardly wait! I am so excited I just cant hide it! I am singing to myself this morning that seems like a good song to sing its going to be a nice day for the most part but snow tonight, ugh. I can hardly wait. sigh.. no singing then, and no I wont be joining good old Bing Crosby in "let it snow, let it snow, let it snow" oh heck no. That song is off my list forever now. Jolly old snow isn't so jolly when it freezes your highways and streets and you skateboard across the ice in your SUV. nope not fun. I will learn how to drive on it eventually. I just prefer not to. I am fortunate enough to have a partner who doesn't mind being my chauffer. phew. He doesn't want me wrecking the beast (suv). fine with me. CHICKEN I admit it freely. BIG CHICKEN in fact. Oh sun where are you when I need you??

    Oh Brat - how I wish we had your snow! I should have moved to Montana or Wy many years ago, wanted to, just never had the chance! Try to enjoy it for me (just a little, please), even if you grimace while doing it..LOLO

    Yesterday was a great mail day - I received 2 sets of blocks from my partners. Retired Fire Chief, I LOVE the blocks, you 'may' be a beginner, but your blocks are wonderful..very nice. Of course candies (my fav) and thread catcher are nice additions too. Thank you so much.

    JuneBillie, your block is also very pretty. It is very nicely done - I love how you put the poinsettia in the center. I will post pictures as soon as I figure out how to transfer pics over to the computer! My son (Scott) gave me a NEW computer for Christmas, I'm still learning it..lolo It's a HP Pavillion All-in-One, boy it is nice. Of all the computers I've had, THIS is the first, very first NEW computer I've had..lolo I always manage to get the hand-me-downs.. The one I've had was over 7 yrs old, and was sooooooo slow lately, I could nap waiting for something to open or load....yawn....

    I will try to post pictures this evening after son of mine gets home, he's the computer guru.. Thanks again ladies, I truly do love the blocks (and goodies). Your blocks are in the mail today. ;o)

    Merry Christmas
    Jean

    Love the star block, love stars period and that one is gorgeous.

    Oksewnsew, glad you like the blocks. I really enjoyed making them and I thought the fabrics were beautiful. I would love to see some of the Christmas blocks you have received, I think you are going to have a cute Christmas sampler.

    Today is my first day at work this week.. I have caught a nasty crudbug! Sniffly, coughing, fever, yuck, yuck, yuck. I did pull fabric for tqualley's block, so never fear! I will get it done.

    It's truly a sad day when you are too sick to sit at a sewing machine!
    The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow. Do good anyway.

    Frenchfryqueen (love that name!) sorry to hear you have the crud, been there done that. The very best thing is to go to bed and stay there and drink lots of liquids. Everything else can wait because when you feel really yucky nothing goes right anyway. Get well soon.
