    I am an RN too and I know what you mean, working several 12 shifts in a row. Been there, done that.LOL. Sometimes it takes 2 days to recover from the 2 and 3 days you worked. I am glad you are among the living now.

    Jane, my main color is aqua/turquoise-with some pink/orange/yellow/sand colors. Take me back to the Caribbean with your ideas! Batiks are good--some of my fabrics have beachy prints, some are just beachy colors. Glad you're off and can recover a bit from your workdays.

    I got my email and my info is correct. My theme of the seashore is not listed on the email.

    Jane, I've looked at 1930's fabric online. My fabrics look very similar and were called feedsack prints when I bought them. Think they might be the same thing?

    Sherry, I'll need hankies if you have plenty. Unless my aunt wants to give up some of hers. Is there a specific size to look for in case I find some?

    mimim, feedsack prints are 30's reproduction fabrics. They are a personal favorite of mine.

    Jane, I work in industry. I did development work for a food ingredients company. After years of working a straight day job the company did cutbacks. I got to stay but had to go to the quality lab and now work a 12 hour rotating schedule. I couldn't do it if I still had kids at home. I actually think it is easier now in my mid 40s than it was in my 20s with three children.

    Sherry, I will send my info again.

    I was supposed to be off work tomorrow but now I am going in. Probably only part of a day but since I am doing development work I can go on my schedule. Hope to be in, work 8 hours and back home before noon tomorrow. Then I am going to sew!

    I don't have hankies but I will try to find some. I will let you know if I need some.

    Mary

    p.s. Someone asked about my name. My name is Mary Elane but my family runs it together and uses both names. So, it sounds like MaryLane. I have cousins named KimRose, BobbyJoe, RickyRay, David Wayne, DebbieJane, RuthAnn, etc... We live in the midwest. No good explanation.

    Ok, re : names, addresses, emails and phone numbers, I will add my phone number to the list. My info is correct. I have MaryLanes info, mimim says hers is correct- you might pm your phone number to me, please. Jc emailed me so she received it. I still need your phone number please. pm me. Wonnie, I have your information but the email must be wrong. Please pm me. I will gather the info and try to send out the correct information.

    The hankies I have range from small to 13-14". The bigger ones, we will have to fold the wings down more, so if you want the butterfly to have an open wing span, use smaller hankies.

    Yvonne, do you mind some very small splashes of color? Or do you want us to stick with all black/grey/taupe kind of colors? If so, any colors you absolutely don't want?

    Thank you ladies for all your personal info. It looks like everyone got all the right information. MaryLane, have you decided on a theme yet?

    Here is what I have for everyone so far:
    Sherry: butterfly hankies with floral pastels of pinks, blues, lavender, aqua, white, and off white
    MaryLane:
    mimim : sea shore in aqua/ turqoise, pinks, orange, sand colors
    Jclinganrey: 30's reproduction fabric with white tone on tone backgrounds
    Wonnie: The City in black, grey, white, taupe or camel

    Is this right?

    I also find hankies on ebay and etsy.

    No colors, Mimi other than the black, gray, tan and white but I do think "The City" is a little difficult to do. I had in mind skylines, etc. but, thinking it over for my own row I think that's too limiting so how about if I changed it to "Neighborhood at Dusk" and we could do houses ... does that appeal to everyone more?

    No, I haven't decided yet. I am not sure what I will do with this top yet and that would help me decide. There are just so many beautiful fabrics these days.

    Update Sherry!!! Got your message! YEAH! Usually when you get a message there is a repeat of the new message below with a space to enter your response ... well, in that space was MY message and my response would have been sent to ME. Wierd! Maybe that's how Round Robin's work and, since this is my first, it's done differently than normal OR....maybe there's a poltergeist in my computer!!!!!!!!

    I get my message back lots of time. I have usually forgot to click on "reply to message". The City is fine with me. I have never done houses, but whatever you decide, I will try to do my best.

    "houses" was just a suggestion since that would be part of a community ... you could do anything as long as it related in some way to the theme, "Community at dusk" which I'm going to stick with since I feel it offers more opportunities.

    I sent everyone another email. Please watch for it and let me know if you got it. Wonnie, I think that theme is great. I can think of lots of ideas.

    Oh, good, Sherry! I'm so glad you like it!!!

    Barbara, you asked about color ... we are changing our living room to light gray walls with light, wood flooring and going for "kind of" a monochromatic look with all neutrals and that's why I chose only black, gray, white and taupe/camel. Keep in mind there are all different shades of all those colors and you can use light or/and dark gray, black can be dark or charchoal and the taupe or camel can be light or dark. For instance, I found a piece of of fabric called,"Marbles" that is a camel color I'm going to use for some of the windows. The windows will be small so it will be just a teeny bit of color showing. Yellows are just too bright for what I'm looking to for ... remember, it's suppose to be dusk. I don't care if you want to do individual blocks or a row. I will be doing a solid 12" x 60" row with 1/2" seam allowances added all around. I will send along sashing for between the rows and will have plenty of the camel to send along as well if anyone needs it for windows, too ... or for lamp posts

    I can think of things, Wonnie, I do not know if I can do them. LOL. I guess I will be the first to get your top, so I will have to see what you do first, then I will decide.

    Thank you mimim. I hesitate in asking this, and if you feel this is unreasonable or unfair, I will understand. Since most of the hankies I have are larger, would you all mind if I make my blocks 13 1/2" unfinished rather than 12 1/2" unfinished? It would make the hankies fold easier into butterflies. Please be honest with your replies. I will understand and I will abide with what you think. Thank you very much for considering this. Sherry

    It's fine with me to change your square size.

    Sherry - 13 1/2" is fine with me. I agree with Yvonne - - - please remind me - - -

    As long as we're asking for slight adjustments, would it be okay with the group if I ask that you NOT sew your blocks together? I know this is a ROW robin. I would really prefer to set all the blocks ON POINT and cannot do so if the blocks are sewn into a row. It would also allow me more 'creative latitude'. Heck! I might even add alternate setting blocks. It just depends on how all the blocks 'play' together. What does everyone think? As Sherry said, I will abide by the groups' decision.

    Yvonne - - - I found a pattern that I think will go well with your idea. At least, I certainly hope so! I'm anxious to see your blocks!

    JC that is ok with me. I think if we have a special request and it is not too hard on anyone, we need to send that info in a note or little notebook with our row. Then, it will remind each of us as we are working on that particular row. I belong to the CRAFT club! (Can't remember a fricken thing). LOL.
