    OMG, Brat.. I love it. Now you do know, ya'all have the whole month to do the blocks...LOLO You can send your LOVELY weather down to me. I LOVE LOVE LOVE snow and winter. Always have, guess I always will, regardless of age. Just be careful if you have to get out.

    Have a great day, enjoy the 'stuff' for me..

    its not lovely weather btw. dh slid off the highway last night twice, ended up calling a tow truck to bring him home he was too uncomfortable (ok scared) to finish the drive. too many cars were sliding off the highway. ten minutes from home he got here 1.5 hours after work so not a picnic. he was shoveling all the walkways this morning. and he was not smiling at me.

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

    I'm catching up with my reading and just saw Roberto's post about our being partnered. He said he thinks it's amazing I'm a retired fire chief and I think it is amazing that he has turned his time into being a fabric artist! Yes, I have looked at some of his older posts, Terriamn told me he is an embroidery expert. I feel super lucky to have been paired with Roberto, we've exchanged emails and I am super excited about swapping with him.

    Brat, careful on the roads. People in our area forget how to drive in the snow from year to year and we always have a ton of fender benders with the first snow. I didn't know Cody got a lot of snow and so early. Maybe I feel luckier to live in cold, dreary mid-Michigan now. I don't mind the snow too much, it would just be wonderful if it didn't snow on the roads, driveways and sidewalks! Think the Lord would take a suggestion?

    Had planned on making my blocks today ( partner and I are exchanging two blocks) but had terrible sinus headache, after . Wonderful time of year for allergies that always lead to sinus infections for me. Finally feel better, maybe I can get at least one block started

    Glad everyone is making connections with partners. I've had quite a few ladies that missed sign up time - got them partnered up.

    We've had a few members starting this month too. I paired them with 'already' members. Elisabrat, Groovy Pieces, Kathy Phillips, letsquilt, MandaLynn, Retired Fire Chief, Sewing60, Sunrise450, Terriamn, The MamaHauser, and Wanabquilter Our newest member is Chickadeee55 (Marilynn) She's been in several swaps on the board, just not this one.. I partnered her with Nattoddboyd in Australia - so everyone is fixed up,
    so far..lol That makes 13 new ones - isn't that great? Cool beans.... IF I've missed anyone, don't hesitate to let me know...

    I'm so glad to see most everyone has re-joined, this IS such a fun group. I hope all enjoys it. I hope all that are having health problems, get to feeling better very soon.

    Mine hit the mail tomorrow! I wonder for you OLD TImers like are you old or just old timers in this swap? oh that is not what I wondered at all! I was wondering what do you do with your blocks? at one a month do you just hang onto them til you have enough of something or what do you make? a big ufo pile lol? I am hoping to add to a scrappy red/white/green/Christmas quilt I have made blocks for already. I was more than half way to my goal so this will finish things out so I can quilt it next year and well .. a gift! what are you making?

    Now watch it there Brat, OLD can be construed different ways...There are none on here that are OLD, but quilters that have quilted a long time, hence, 'old timers'...

    I'm sure some are quite fast at putting their blocks together, me? I've been in so many swaps I have several totes with blocks of all sorts to be set together, some day.. They're just eye candy sometimes when you want to remember where they came from, and see all the different things folks do..

    I kinda took the day off today, watched several movies, then working on a couple 'Bee' blocks..;o) Now I'm getting ready to make cinnamon rolls.. Am watching Once Upon a Time, then Duck Dynasty...quality TV time..lol

    I am excited to see what blocks everyone receives. yahoo! I will mail my blocks out today also. I had fun making them and thought about my partners when I did. Especially the whip cracking leader of ours. I was thinking and praying the whole time.. this has to come out perfect. I don't want to be a failure on my first shot here. I wonder how sometimes you sew a block and its perfect. no seams need ripping out it measures exact and then you sew that block again and its off 1/8th an inch. in the middle now its lots of seams coming out. I think I am doing the exact same thing and yet there is a discrepancy. argh that bugs me! On my own blocks for me? it can be a bit off I can fudge it into a quilt but with block swaps its not an option. Perhaps this is a good thing forces one to work to be better. ok its a good thing

    HAHA, Brat, you're not the only for sure. Don't know how many times I've made duplicate blocks and one will be off a smidge!! Yet they were cut and sewn the very same way.... I'm in a BOM at a LQS here, out of 10 we've made, I don't think there is one that measures correctly. I have come to the conclusion it's her measuring when she typed the instructions!! Several others have complained too, so we'll just adjust, but it's disgusting to pay for blocks and not have them correct!! One gal said the other day "guess I'll just make all 10 1/2" and be done w/it!!" Sad...

    Hey, do you like applique? I have one partner's blk done, working on yours, it's applique, but if you don't want that in your quilt jes say so, I no problem making something else..

    Ya'all be sure to post blocks you receive, if unable to post, have your partner do it.. Thanks... Eye candy is always good, ya know....

    I came home today to find a fantastic block from Groovy Pieces. I am sorry I can't post a picture of it. I am hoping she can. It is made from fabric of prary colors representing sports with teddybears watching a game' and adorable Peanuts characters as well. Certainly will make any child who receives it in their charity quilt smile. Thanks so much, Groovy. Your block was mailed today.
