    I have bought some cat veggie series. They are so cute. What is the name of the dog flower series? I have not seen those yet.

    I am not sure if my old ladies really want to be seen with curlers in their hair, or maybe not until I get the curlers finished in their hair.

    Here is the sign up list but remember there is no end of sign up. If you want to join us any time feel free to do so!!

    Anyone else interested?

    There is no time limit. You just need to have a wall hanging made with at least 4 quilt blocks ready by the mailing deadline. You can add anything you like to the 4 quilt blocks. There are no limits other than keeping it wall hanging size and not quilt size.

    If I missed adding anyone please let me know.

    Welcome Lv2sew2011!!

    And this is what it will look like when I finish putting all the leaves on the tree. Oh yeah and I decided to add the scarecrow after I took this picture.

    Your tree is beautiful. I didn't at first have any idea that is where it was going. Adding the leaves, etc. is very creative. Um, I am going to have to get with it. lol.....Actually I sewed a bit last night. I have finished the main center theme of 4 blocks, but need to plan out the rest of my creation. Welcome back everyone. Welcome to this swap to others. Have fun creating and sewing.

    Thank you June, it really looks a lot better in person, than in the pictures, it took me almost all day just to quilt it, I have to take a lot of breaks because of my back pain, I've taking some meds and waiting for them to kick in so I can get some sleep. I feel like a zombie sometimes.
    As you can see I usually do most my posting wee hours in the morning...LOL
    And thank you for the welcome..

    Lu2sew2011, I was thinking a tree (just because I love all the shades of them) but wasn't sure. I think your wall hanging is wonderful. I'm really going to have to get in gear, but Dh is going out of town tomorrow for the week so I will have some long days to sew.

    Have a great day everyone!

    Wow Luv that was quick for you, not due yet. Now I feel slow, (no offense please just funning). I am working on the embroidery of ladies. Goal is to have the ladies embroidered by end of this month then will post photos. I will then have to decide what colors to sash them with to put in wall hanging. Been busy with show quilts and customer quilts right now along with canning and all that summer stuff so a bit slow, but working on it none the less.

    wow! y'all have trees on the brain! lol
    guess i should be making the dog blocks instead of cats. 8-) dogs and trees do seem to go together, wink, wink! but for the record, i don't have the patterns for the dogs, just the veggie kitties.
    everose i love your tree, too. i admit i don't know how to paper-piece. will have to learn soon since i just started a bom with pping. sheesh! don't you love when i need you to teach me things?! lololol

    Well how is everyone doing now on your wall hangings?

    Here is an updated player list:

    There is no time limit. You just need to have a wall hanging made with at least 4 quilt blocks ready by the mailing deadline- October 30th. You can add anything you like to the 4 quilt blocks. There are no limits other than keeping it wall hanging size and not quilt size.

    If I missed adding anyone please let me know.

    I will need your address so if everyone would kindly send me a pm with your address I will start collecting them now so i can send an address(at the end of Oct) to each player for sending your wall hanging to. It isn't a partner situation. I will randomly select each person for each player to send to. So you won't know til you get the pkg who's wall hanging you get! LOL
