    Nancia who gave you permission to get sick again? knock that off right now!!! (sorry to hear your down and out hope it is a short term thing).

    I finished one of my mug rugs and it will be in the mail on Monday if I dont make the postal today. they are not open on Saturday after 11. I have dialysis today and tomorrow or it would fly out of here right now. I think even a leprachaun would give me a thumbs up.

    I was going to start my Rug but Tuesday my mother fell at work and broke her wrist. She depends on me quite a bit so guess what...I'm been Mommy sitting! She's so independant bless her heart but I refused to let her alone. My brother lives with her but brothers can't snap bras and help give sponge baths! Ha! She has a splint on until she get the cast on but...get this...the woman is back to work today! Light duty and filling waters and delivering menus and such but she's a real trooper at age of 74! (she works in our local nursing home as a cook). I'll be working on my MR this weekend. I can't find my "lady" on this thread anywhere but I did get to her profile and found she likes "things" so it gives me something to go on. Oh, Nelco sent me her fave colors so thats helps also. I didn't say what she likes in case she's reading this! Ha! Beautiful Rugs Sandy, love the Bird!!

    Cute MR's Sandy! I like the bird one and especially the busy bee one. I think the prairie points are a cute idea too.

    On page #32 , LoupEsprit said " Just a thought; I personally have posted my preferences in my 'profile' area, so regardless of the swap, the info can be found there. If everyone does it, the info can be easily found without giving anything away. (and it's not like personal color/theme preferences are 'personal info')"

    What a great idea !! I have been searching thro the 40+ pages trying to get more info about the person who I got. As soon as I finish looking, I am going to make that change in my profile. THANKS ! LoupEsprit.

    It is what it is !
    But it will become what you make it.

    Thank you NElco for all your hard work. I hope my person likes what I will send. I've never made a mr before so I hope you won't be disappointed. I've been out of town all week taking care of my dau and her 3 little ones. My dau and her youngest got the flu and the little one was hospitalized. I don't think I'll have time to go back and look for my partner so ahead of time I'm sorry.

    I have received my MR partner and have done some "snooping." My project for this long weekend is to complete this and get it in the mail. I like that it is a surprise.

    Just finished mine and am going to try to mail tomorrow since the post office is closed on Monday. At least it will get a start on its way. Hope she's going to like it.

    Sorry Nancia I was out of town, but you go to their profile, and click on the links under their name for their current posts or started threads. And hopefully they have talked about themselves or mentioned what they like in some of their posts. It can be time consuming if you get someone who is chatty, but those make for the most fun because they always spill the beans about what they like.

    Nelco, well, many of us are mothers, and you know there is no secret that a mother can't find when she puts her mind to it! I used to say when they were looking for Saddam and Osama that they should just get a bunch of mothers on their tail, they'd find both of em quick! Same with the nukes they were looking for, lol! My mother used to say "Mother knows all!" Pfft, if she only knew!

    Pretty pretty so far! I love all these colors!

    I'm going to Montgomery, AL tomorrow with a friend to a quilt shop that's going out of business. They're giving their signed up customers first dibs on the closeout pricing, and she can bring a friend!

    I thank you guys for the well wishes. Dialysis is ..boring. everyone else gets to sleep and you want to like someone hit ou on the head wonk your out.. but me my blood pressure is naturally low 90/60 on a real good day and well it drops to 60/30 today 40/22 an well they get all hysterical and no napping for the brat. i even have to do like aerobics from my chair frantically waving arm over and over lifts whatever to get it up high enough that they let me go home. and pass out tired I am just so .. tired guys. Trying to do my best and it seems its taking more than normal. Fingers crossed there is a kidney with my name out there. faith is a good thing.

    I finished one mug rug! bet your green with envy huh? maybe its yours! maybe not. yours might be the other one.. I found so many I love on pinterest then I got back to what i can do right? lol some of those are so adorable its not funny. here is one that had me big time smiling today wouldnt this be the cutest thing ever?

    Isn't that the cutest thing???!!! Wish I was talented enough to copy that idea. Two mugrugs done so far....working on more and then will choose the one I think is the best to send to my partner. I have no idea what colors she likes so I hope whatever one I send, she will be happy with.

    The color question sorta cracks me up. We are quilters and need color from all over the spectrum to create our little beauties. I think we gravitate towards some more than others but like a painter you never ever fill your box with only some .. you need them all. I need them all and while my house is coordinated per say those neon mice on the floor. the green tiles on the end table, the paintings the kids did in crayola color (twenty years strong and counting) and pale roses yet brown .. you know its more colorful than I would have said. I would have said its neutral. Whatever you make will be truly enjoyed dont stress it. here is another one that I found that said cute too:

    Those are both so cute Elisabrat! Super curvy stresses me out when I'm sewing.

    I made my first FMQ attempt last night. I was going to just jump in with both feet and do it on this playmat I'm doing. Epic fail doesn't begin to describe it. I ripped it out and am putting a 6-1/2" wide diamond pattern on it instead that I can use a "normal" stitch for on my machine. My machine was pulling the top thread down to the bottom side and leaving big loops of it everywhere, then it hiccuped and I just got mad and tore it all out. I tried tension adjustments on my test piece, and never could get it where I was happy with it. I have a Kenmore 385 sewing machine that my mother bought me as a wedding gift in December 1991, and it was not made with FMQ in mind. At 21 years old, I hate to put a lot into buying new feet if I'm going to end up upgrading before long anyway, which I may do in the spring with my tax refund.

    Here's a clue

    I didn't realize we should be giving clues.
    Well here's a section of the rug mug for my partner.
    I hope it fits the bill (request for young boy)
