    Finally back in town. Long trip, at least for me it is. Doc gave me the ok and I am doing so much better. Will post a photo of me and daughter on website with the quilt I gave him. makes me feel special to bless him with a quilt because he gave me such a wonderful gift of no pain.
    Thanks for the links rhonda. In touch with my swap partner, we are working out the mailing details on what to send to each other and when. Hoping this week we are.

    Rhonda,
    i haven't participated in any of your forums yet, but I would love to be included in your scrap swap. Tell me what I need to do. I have all kinds of scraps to share but I am really wanting selveges!

    Oh goodness cogito, you want selvages, then I am your person. For some reason I do not throw those away, in fact, my daughter uses them for her hair. Now they are the selvages, I just put them out in the garage because the stack was so large on my sewing desk. So, lets pm and I will send them off to you girl. we can work some details out. I am not picky when it comes to getting them out the door. In fact, you till Monday to swap with me, and I will have more for you. I am finishing up a couple of quilts on the longarm and there are selvages for sure. I put the binding on for my longarm customers and so I end up with those large selvages as well. Then, I can cut some off the fabric I am using in the Boom 10 swap, join in that fun girl. I also have lots of scraps still having the selvages on them. Yep, lots of that here.

    I need to get out in the garage and do some more scrounging. I pulled out the star crazy patch quilt, and find that I have made the small triangles, 20 of them, in lights, three centers in red but need three more and no red in my scraps, they are coming from my swap partner now, then I need to do 60 dark diamonds and 20 small triangles in dark. With 40 more in light. this is one big quilt. I want to get this one done for the fair exhibits in August. Will be busy for sure. This is the last of my oldest projects. The rest are not over 8 years old, and only a couple more of those.

    My Scrap Package Came!

    Yippee, received my scrap exchange from Phyllis (sunrise 4150)! Not only were there wonderful strips all beautifully organized, but a cute pattern and quilt magazine as well. She was nice enough to include a mailer as I had to order mine from the PO (who knows how long that will take) so I can get her package off in no time. Well...no long message here, I have a magazine to read!
    Thanks again Phyllis!

    I will be doing my scrap diving this weekend for my partner and getting it off to her on Monday probably. And, if all goes well, get those selvages in the mail the same time. I have a lot of cutting to do this weekend and finish a Steelers quilt for a customer, to bad I still have to piece the blocks and assemble. Busy fun weekend ahead.

    I received my scrap bag from judy5cents in Canada. Thank you so much. I mailed yours off today. I am hoping gets to you asap, but we will see. If it goes my way, will be there by this Friday, but who knows on the USPS. I filled out the custom forms online this time so no running to the post office. I also sent flat rate mail which is supposed to be within two to three days. Hope Canada Day was a blessing for you. I know this weekend will be great because I am going to do some quilting for four days. Last weekend I got four tops done and the Steelers quilt nearly finished. Bobbin tension went zing and had to rip. Yucky.

    Package received from Sewred. Thank you Sewred! I love the brights and the kids have gone through to snag a couple pieces for themselves.

    You are more than welcome sunrise4150, it was fun. I forgot to put the yellow in though, sorry. Thank goodness you sent me a mailer, mine still haven't come....you would still be waiting. I'm not able to post a picture right now, my internet is giving me problems with such slow upload time it won't work...supposed to be fixed by the 16th.

    It's been a while since I've posted what I've been working on. I took down my blue scrappy fabrics bin and for 2 weeks did nothing but work on projects made from those scraps. They included making some makeup bags and a larger bag. I also cut out squares for future projects and then made 6" strip blocks. With my smaller pieces and strips I then made 110 4 1/2" crumb blocks and finally just got exhausted and bagged up the remaining scraps back in a bag. Sigh...but it was a good start. Still have reds, yellows, browns/blacks, greens, purples, pinks, and tons of whites! If I decide to just give a bunch away to free up my guilt, would any of you be interested in more scraps???
