    Hello Ladies,
    I've sent a PM to Rhonda about joining this swap. I've got a wall hanging almost completed, all except for the hanging sleeve on the back. Then it'll be ready to ship.

    The wall hanging is in many shades of purple,lavender, lilac, & white..... I hope there is someone out three that like these colors,!!!

    HAPPY QUILTING!

    well, of all the nerve!! i somehow fell off this thread! fortunately, grann said something about it and here i am, back again! and you thought you could get rid of me that easily???! lol, of course, not! i have just spent an amazing amount of time catching up with the posts. i am still considering my options for a wall hanging pattern. i see many are doing spring. such a beautiful season! and those daffodils are so lovely! but i'm not sure i'm very much of a spring colors kinda person. i do love my brights! so may lean strongly in that direction. anybody particularly like polka dots?? i admit i enjoy them. whimsical sounds nice, too. hmmmmmm....... i may have to really think about this, some more. i also love modern quilts, and mini quilts. the hardest part isn't the making, it's deciding which road to take. and that involves cleaning up my quilt room so i can find something to work with. other than 1 or 2 board things (like this), i am taking february "off" so i can finish up some projects. i love the swaps, but then i don't work on my other stuff, like quilting for coyote magic, who probably thinks she'll never get her quilt back, or finishing strip blocks for my jellyroll partners, or making a new needlecase because i didn't like the work i had done on the one i swapped. and then there are all the family quilts, that i have the fabric for, and the patterns, but haven't started. i know i won't get everything done, but i intend to at least make a start!

    I'm back as well! Life knocked me for a loop for a while, but I bounced back up swinging!

    A new job literally fell into my lap, and I *LOVE* it!! (the pay is less, but the fact that I love the job makes up for it). It's done wonders for my attitude, that's for sure!

    Anyway, I'll post more about that in the 'diary' section. I'm back and ready to get to sewing!

    Nancia in case laquita doesnt love me back I love polka dots and pretty bright colors.. (wait i am soliciting wall quilts here.. wonder if that is illegal?)

    mine is being sewn, just took a coffee break. pale to medium spring colors easter egg fabric, pink, lavendar yellow.. happy spring.. it will be good to put out til after easter so it could have a nice run for the spring. how can you not find easter happy? thinking chicks it needs chicks. for some reason they are on my need to do today. so chicks r us.

    happy holiday everyone. its gorgeous about 60 degrees today and sunny. wrong for January but right now with the door wide open the pineneedles smell marvelous and well .. what a lucky day.

    I was working tonight on some of my little boston blocks with shades of pinks, white, and green. It was very interesting, and fun. I am a little slow right now though, because last night as I was walking across my living room a muscle/tendon tore badly, and I have to go to the doctor in the morning. It felt like someone come up behind me, and hit me in the calf of my leg with a hammer. But, tonight I got to relax some with my little blocks. These blocks are a first for me, but such fun.

    I have tore some ligaments in my leg. I had been on cipro for 2 weeks for kidney infection, and one side effect is torn ligaments, and with lupus etc. I cannot take this med anymore. I go next week for some physical therapy. I was a bit concerned, because in the past I have had a blood clot in my leg, but I am thinking this one will be ok with therapy, and rest. I will just have to work on some more of my quilt. That is always good therapy.

    First and foremost I am so sorry to hear of your leg trouble. boy it sounds like a tough one and hope you find some relief.

    Ok second..
    drum roll please: I am DONE. tada! finished TADA! happy dance double time.. da da da daaa daaaa dadada da da!! I just got in this mission to finish things this morning and I finished this one and all but back sewing of binding on another. yahoo. now to go hit the last boom block um this boom finished Jan 1st mind you and the fabric just came a week ago.. a tad late boy I dont do late well.. well going to finish it because. I made a spring with easter egg fabric combined happy pastel pinks, yellows, purples cream its cute. I wish I could post it for you but the camera has broken. maybe the good dh can take a pic for me otherwise when you receive it please photograph and post it! this was fun once I got rolling. I am thinking its about 17 x 22 maybe 24 I forget now.. sigh such as it is to be me and I surely just measured it a couple hours ago. If you like soft colors and easter you might like this. PS no bunnies or chicks sorry went with pinwheels, tulips and butterflys and of course.. easter egg fabric too. so if you cant do easter for religious reasons would you tell Rhonda so you dont end up with something counter to your beliefs? gracias. Rhonda surely you understand this too and can accomidate anyone who might not want that at all. i am patient can send when you say your ready. OH yes the postal closes on Saturdays at 11 and I am in dialysis so in theory you can give me a Monday or later mail date and I wll get you all the confirmations you need. Unless you have someone sitting in their chair waiting waiting waiting then well.. I can go out before they close today. Gracias!

    I'm still looking for inspiration... I had an idea, but used it in a smaller scale for the mug rug swap. I'm not sure if I should do the same 'theme' again... I suppose I could, because I won't have the same partner.

    Hmmm.... Opinions?

    I keep watching this and kind of have an idea, but have a couple of questions please. Do you put a hanging sleeve on the back of them ? and if they are suppose to have one, what would you do if it's 2 sided? Thanks for suggestions.

    Adding a hanging sleeve is a good idea but it is up to you. If you want you could add some loops at the top for hanging if it is two sided.
