    Hmmm interesting analogy Foxflower!!

    That's what happens when I get tired I guess. I'll remind myself that little princesses aren't all they're "cut out" to be and it'll all be good.

    Ive got a million toads in the other room. I dont know if the princess will kiss that many toads, so i might be scrappy quilting forever.

    I can help you out with that lynnie, just send me the princesses and all send you a bunch of toads. I like the scrappy but I usually always start with the princess first, controlled scrappy I guess. About every 2 years I just make a string quilt out of all the fabrics I have used in the quilts that I have made. The nice thing is I can look at it and say that was in so and so's, that in so and so and the kids even come home and see their fabric and say that was in mine. Kind of comical, but it doesn't use nearly enough of it. I normally just send it to someone that wants strips and pieces.

    That's funny too Lynnie.

    Here's a scrappy pattern I made and enjoyed (only I didn't cut into my Madrona Road to do it! They're still princessess in the stash). http://aquilterstable.blogspot.co.uk...-tutorial.html (Don't look SandyZ unless you want a hint of what's coming.)

    Jaba, that sounds like a good plan. I do like those string quilts.

    Hurray! On this gray, gloomy, snowy 'spring' day, it was so nice to find the package in my mailbox from Foxflower. She sent me the nicest little 'several zippered pockets' purse made out of the CUTEST cat fabric, a scarf (more kitty fabric) to wear when I am out in the yard working, a notepad of kitty paper, a nice pen and some chocolate. I plan to use the little bag to keep my small scissors, seam ripper, needles, thread etc. in and it will go in my larger bag when I go to quilt retreat and our regular guild sewing days. Thanks so much Foxflower. I love everything!

    Well Lynnie, as it happens, I have more kitty fabric than beachy fabric and I was just cutting a kitty strip to make 1 or 2 more of those with kitties peeking over. I also just bought a bunch more zippers. So, I could probably be convinced. It's finding the time that is the trouble. I see you saw the tute. I could just send you the fabric piece and you can alter the pattern a smidge to make it work. I'm glad you like it and I'm especially glad Sandy likes it!

    Sandy I got your wonderful package too. Thank you! I'm going to email you personally though and I haven't had a chance to take pictures yet.

    Does everyone know about Bonnie Hunter's scrap quilt books and website: quiltville.com. All she does is scrap quilts and her quilts are very fun! She has also written 3 books that can probably borrowed from your library. Even if you make just one of each of her quilts, you would have enough to make in your lifetime.

    Rhonda, I think we need to do a pouch swap!!!

    I've looked at Bonnie Hunter's stuff a lot and was going to do a mystery quilt. She must sew really fast because it had tons of pieces and I didn't have time. Not all of her quilts are like that though. I didn't know about quilt cam. That's cool.

    Here are all the wonderful things SandyinZ4 sent me. There were so many it's hard to see them in the picture! Thank you Sandy. Oh, and there were 3 more chocolates, but those got eaten in the car after I picked up the package....I even shared with my kids. They thank you too.

    for some reason I'm not able post pictures like I usually do. I'll have to try later.
