    So ssnare and Wonnie, how is that snow over there? Are you snowed in? Hope you have enough fabric to keep you content.

    My husband went out and shoveled snow. He shoveled a curve path in the street so my son could get back into the driveway. It snowed all day. No school, no nothing today.

    Sorry to be so late to respond Quilter Momma.....computer down since a week ago Sunday!!!! ..cable company just left and back on line...YEAH! We had about 3" but I love winter and cool weather. Just don't like driving on ice!!!...At least you have some traction on snow. Now if I had 2 or 3 feet of it I might feel differently!!!! Love to smell the fresh air.

    Sherry...know you like butterflies. Do you ever go to missouriquiltco.com? If not, just go to the website and then click on "Quilters Daily Deal". It's the "Chloe" layer cake ....you get 36 - 10" squares with 4 of each design...normally $36 and today only for $19.95. Think it's just lovely.

    We had a snow storm come in the morning, dumped about two inches, and gone by afternoon. Today we have some sunshine which feels so good. I am loving it to the max!!!!!!! I am so ready for spring. I am tempted to plant the bulbs I did not get to last fall right now and pray they come up this year. Love bulbs, they are easy to maintain. The only bad part would be that I won't be able to till the mound and keep up on the weeds. Maybe one of those flower bed rugs would be a good idea.

    So how are the rows coming along ladies?

    No problems, Yvonne! I'll just enjoy my So Cal weather - - - - lol. A bit chilly at night but I just add another quilt & all is well.

    Not sure which is the worse part of a move; the actual moving or all the packing & un-packing. I'm now up to my eyeballs in boxes!!!

    The good news is I get to re-organize my sewing room!!! So (sew) excited!!! I previously had a make-shift space which was okay but not ideal. Now I have an actual room!!! Will post pics when I'm finished.

    Hope all is well with my fellow Perfect Tens. I'm @ Panera using their wi-fi (and having dinner) b/c my internet isn't set up yet. Oh, the trials and tribulations of moving. . . . .

    Back to the boxes. . . .

    Oh, I SO know what you're talking about Jane. Where on earth did you find boxes??? Tried to downsize a while back and went to the Box Shop to buy 3 boxes to take books to the Half Price store and other things to the Habitat Restore. It's impossible to get boxes from the stores anymore at least around here as they now break them down immediately and then resell the used cardboard. At any rate those 3 medium sized boxes cost me $30.00!!!! I about fell over. Yes, packing and unpacking is no fun! But if I were there I'd be happy to help out anyway. Do hope you enjoy your new abode! By the by today was rainy, cool, windy and cloudy so I helped myself to a cup of hot mint chocolate and a good book!!!...BUT, snow is in the forecast for tomorrow and Thursday... Do you have Daylight Savings Time in California? Spring starts here March 20th.

    Sorry QuilterMomma - those blocks have my name on them. Wonnie, yes, moving is a pain in the a** but all in all, it was the right thing to do. Honestly, I got most of my boxes from work. Working at a hospital has it's advantages. . . besides those, I went to Home Depot. They have AWESOME boxes at very good prices; better than U-Hauls' prices.

    Now that I'm getting settled, I'm putting Marys' rows up on my wall; have ideas in mind but had to wait til after my move. I have some of that 'measuring tape' fabric in yellow. You used some (in red) in the center of one of your blocks. I was going to use some but you said you don't care so much for yellow. . .

    Will post pics before I send my rows along - - -

    A little bit of yellow is fine, Jane. I am just not a yellow person. It is fine as an accent but when it is a main color it depresses me. My original tape measure is yellow and still in my sewing room. Can't wait to see what you do. I have been working at my design for Yvonne's. I can see it in my mind. Just haven't got it to work out from my hands yet!

    Happy quilting, y'all!

    Mary

    Ah, darn, I wanted those blocks. Oh well, I know they will be in good hands and loved as much as I would love them.

    ACCHHHH!!! I now have two people's rows. I'm holding up the works! I have been working on Yvonne's. I hope it turns out well. I am a little worried because I changed background colors. My SIL thinks it is fine but I worry. Jane's will be much easier for me. I have tons of 30s stuff - fabric and patterns. How is everyone else doing?

    Barbara, well, I worked that ole' block out alright...I REDID it!!!! Now I'm happy! Need to make a few quick stitches on the last one and then sew them together and then I'll attempt to post some pictures. Had to put small sashing strips between my blocks because some idiot ( hmmmmmmmm...wonder who THAT could be???) measured wrong!!!
    Will probably mail Mon. or Tues. Sherry but I'll let you know for sure when it's in the mail.
    Are you all moved in Jane??? How do you like it? Is it closer to work?
    How you coming along with your rows Mary? Seems like "life" always gets in the way when we're creating, doesn't it?

    Yvonne, I have worked all week off and on and pretty solid yesterday and today. I am trying to remember how to post pictures and will add some. I am disappointed with the effect. I wanted to mail tomorrow but I think it needs more. It looks plain compared to the other two rows. I gave things too many sewn details instead of doing more things.

    This is my row laid out under the others. I live on a farm and thought that would be appropriate.

    Some detailed pictures.

    Implement shed with a sleeping tractor.

    There are so many more details I could add but I go back on nights tomorrow night. I noticed after I was done that both of the other rows have a moon and bats. I did everything on here on my sewing machine. I used several decorative stitches and lots of thread changes. I am stewing on it as I fix supper. I may add more detail.

    What do you think, Yvonne?

    I LOVE it Mary. He, he...mine were birds not bats...still laughing ...looked at them again and they could!!! be bats by golly! You stuck to the colors and the theme and you did it all by machine!!!!!....can't imagine! And it's YOUR neighborhood which is perfect! Remember when you add the black sashing I sent it will tie everything together. Thank you so much!!! I'm more than pleased!
