    Just sent the I hope the right answers, I didn't check the board yesterday. I am working on a pair of socks and was turning both heels at the same time. Doing a pair from the toe up, certain areas I have to concentrate so no computer.

    I am still around, have been abit overwhelmed lately with too much going on here at home with my parents.

    I will be looking for some fun fabric and a block that will be cute and fun.

    I am off until Tuesday so I hope that this will be a productive weekend. Did most of my shopping today.

    I don't think that we are so great at looking at the back side of a suit. Even gals who are a sized 2 think their butt is big! LOL... Oh well beauty at each age, I say.

    I am finished except for the binding. I just need to buy some little goodies to go with it to my partner. Woo Hoo!

    I have been offline all weekend. Had to get things done up. I finished an oven mit, pincushion for June swap, dq for June, four baby quilts all done except that binding thing, a scrap quilt quilted and ready for binding, my quilt for quiter's swap quilt done and ready for hand binding, then did my mug rug and had a plan, did my pinwheels in red and white, with blue setting squares, and come to find out it is 12 x 16. Yep, have to redo. I scrounged thru my stash to find something else, and so it now sits waiting for me to get to it. Oh buggers. I am working on a plan for the border of the center design. So overall, a productive weekend while off line. The customer loved their quilt so much they gave me an extra $50 tip. After 16 color changes and five turns on the king, I think I earned it for sure. The feathers turned out awesome.

    YIPPEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I feel special I won. Thank you so much.
