    And, there is the fact we're just a nosey lot and want to see what you've created for your partner

    JillnJo, As you know my partner Beckie has dropped out because of medical reasons. I have designed her Baltimore Albumn quilt just with her in my mind, so I will finished it and send it to her. I know what she is feeling cause I am dealing with DH having cancer surgery on Monday the 12th. It lasted 11 long hours and my daughter and I were lke basket cases when it was finally done. We found out that the reason it took so long was, they found another cancer in his liver and they had to remove that also. Now the fantastic news is he was up and walking today with the nurses.
    Thank you for everyone's prayers and support. I might even be able to get back to my sewing now.

    Carolyn, no, I didn't realize the health problems your partner is having and I am so sorry for her. You are very thoughtful to send her the quilt you have made for her! I remember waiting all day during a brain surgery for my BIL, and the news that he would be well blessing all of us who were praying for him, thinking he may have cancer.
    I am trusting your DH will continue to improve and feel better day by day! Nancy.

    jillnjo, what a beautiful quilt you received from Quiltermomma. Warm soft colours, just right for wrapping yourself up in.

    Well, it turns out that it's probably a good thing that my partner probably dropped out of this swap. I had a heart attack on Tuesday evening but I didn't know at the time that's what it was. Then I had another one in the middle of the night/early morning on Wednesday/Thursday. I've never had heart problems before so this totally a new and foreign thing to me. They life flighted me to Kearney, NE Thursday morning and I'm now awaiting a triple bypass on Monday. Funny how life goes sometimes, eh? I'm sure having quilting withdrawals!

    Oh, Rose, I hope everything goes well with your bypass. Sometimes things do work out for the best. Sewing will be a good therapy when you're done. That, and sleeping!

    Rose, I hope all goes well for you! I think it's an important reminder for us that heart attack symptoms are a lot different for women than men! Sending warm fuzzy thoughts your way!

    Rose, so sorry to hear that you've suffered a heart attack. I hope your surgery goes well and you have a speedy recovery. Take care of yourself and get plenty of rest.

    I am SO sorry, EVERYONE, for not responding sooner. Yikes! I am not getting those updates in email that let me know people have posted here! Good heavens! I was also on a business trip for a week. So much has happened here, both good and not so.

    Rose L, oh my. I am sorry to hear about your surgery needs. We will all hold you in our thoughts on prayers. The good new is that your swap partner has not withdrawn from the swap. I'm sorry she has not responded to you. She reported that she is 75% complete with your quilt!

    I will contact her, however, and let her know about your situation.

    Everyone else, I have gone through my entire list of swap participants, and as far as I can tell, those people who thought their partners had disappeared (yaya...) have been reunited. And as far as I can tell, no one is off the map completely. I *am* waiting to hear from a few people who haven't given me their status updates, but who are, according to their partners, still in touch and still involved.

    So... if, as of today (Sunday, 18 March 2012), there is someone who believes they no longer have a partner, or whose partner has been incommunicado, let me know. Several people have volunteered to make a quilt for an "abandoned" swapper-- some even have an extra already made!! And someone else suggested a group effort should that be needed.

    Please do not hesitate to speak up if you've been abandoned or, frankly, if you know you're not going to be able to complete your commitment. Life, clearly!, happens. The good news is: we have a wonderful community here to support this swap, one way or another.

    Jillaine, Thank you so much for this news. I feel so much better knowing my partner is still in the game! I shall continue on with her quilt as soon as I am able to and still hope to be done by July 1.

    Thanks to all of you for your well wishes and prayers, very much appreciated. My surgery is in the morning and I feel confident that it will all turn out just fine. I'll post when I am able to let you know how everything has gone.

    Hugs and Blessings to you Ms. Rose. I'll say an extra prayer for a swift recovery.


    Ms. Carolyn, thank you for the prayers. I'm so happy that your DH is doing well. I've got your quilt on hold until we (the doctors) figure out if the nerve damage to my arm is permenant or not. You dear lady are an angel to be so understanding. God Bless.

    Need to Express my Apologies

    I want to send my deepest apologies to the people I owe blocks to in the Monthly Block Swap. I have your names and block choices but my mind has not been on sewing lately. Things have been happening in my family and I have been trying to help out. Now to top it off I have been told I have pneumonia. Things just keep happening. Please accept my apologies again and know that I will get you your blocks. I may contact you to see if there is a new theme you have now but you will receive the blocks.
    Sorry! Life really gets in the way sometimes!!! lol

    Yes! My partner and I have been in contact and things are moving forward. I know the fabrics and pattern I am making for her and excited to get it started when I return home next week. I'm loving the quilts that have been shared here.

    Sending prayers for a speedy recovery Rose and others with health issues. Spring is just around the corner! Time of renewal and rejoicing!

    Okay, I have an updated participation chart (and figured out how to add numbers to the pie pieces). Things are looking good. Here it is:

    The colors are really close-- especially the blues. 1 person hasn't responded (that light blue on top); 3 people have completed and shipped (the darker blue next to it), and 11 people are 25% complete (larger turquoise blue lower left).

    Okay... I have finished going through all the data. And my apologies to those of you I sent confusing messages to. I used to be really good at record keeping and organizing, but that skill seems to have disappeared along with my monthly periods.

    Turns out we have "one girl out". Tam...Moo is 60% complete with the quilt she's making for her partner; unfortunately, her partner had to drop out due to nursing school demands. Now, Tam...Moo has communicated it's okay not to find her another partner. But hey. The girl's got a 60% complete quilt to give someone (unless she's decided to send it to the nursing student anyway)! And I don't think ANYONE should have to lose out because they lost their partner. So... Here's what Tam...Moo... initially said she'd like to have:

    "Would love to receive a quilt with some applique in it. I love the 30s prints and small prints. I am partial to turquoise blue and don't particularly like orange or green."

    What do you think, folks?

    I have been working on one of those 30s prints quilts and the border could end up being the turquoise blue. I have started the appliques. This goes along with the other one I am making Whigrose so if she wants, I am game. It is on my list to do anyway.
