    WEll, thank god I didn't lose that sig row for the snowmen!! I've been working on cleaning out my sewing room and was fretting about finding that. I haven't started the cherries yet, saw something on a website that gave me an incredibly silly idea. I love visual puns!! I will get that block made up (maybe today??) and post it. I still am working on ideas for the others. Every time i clear a space in the sewing room, I pile stuff back on surfaces as I continue to clean. It gets messy....

    I thought it was only me that did that! My room is in the biggest mess I have ever seen. I get it halfway straight ananother inspiration puts it back into disarray. Oh well, as long as only I see it, I can live with it!

    My sewing room was beyond messy. Have you ever watched an episode of Hoarders? Yep, that was my sewing room. I still maintained a pathway to the cutting table and the sewing machine, but there were piles and piles and piles! My friend who is also a quilter has been helping. We started in June and have the room 3/4's emptied. Now everything that I'm keeping is in plastic bins (for ease of moving). I plan on tearing out the 40 year old carpeting and putting in a floating linoleum tile flooring, which is why things are packed and all over the place.
    However, now that I've cleared most of it out, I have 3 cherry blocks made and two more to go today! I will be able to mail to RainydayQuilter by next weekend!

    Very nice!! I have 2 blocks done, 1 almost, but I don't like it, so if I can't fix it will do another. The cat don't look like a cat or something, I am working on it though. Then 2 to go. I have them started. Hopefully will mail soon.

    MizMelly,
    Those are wonderful and I LOVE the cherry pi. That is perfect for some of the people in my family! I truly feel blessed by the work everyone has done with my cherry theme. Who knew there were so many different fabrics out there with cherries.

    Hello, I'm going to try and get this mailed out to you by next week. Waiting for an influx of $$ for another quilt commission that I hope is coming my way!

    Whoop Whoop (hand pump). I can't wait to see it. I have 2 cat blocks done and 2 started. One is a UFO, and the other one I just don't like. At a standstill cause I don't know what to do with it. By the time I finish 2 more, I hope to have found a solution, otherwise I will start over on that one. DDIL was over yesterday, and I could tell by the look on her face it just wasn't right.

    You are so funny. It was a honor to work on your row quilt. I hope you like the blocks I have added. I put your package in the mail this morning - suppose to arrive late Wednesday.

    Thanks for the heads up I'll be watching for it. I need to get the snowmen finished this week so they can hopefully be on their way home next week.

    Tam Moo, your blocks are on the way to you. I hope you like them. I put a note to you inside the package. It is in plastic and insured, the works. It was a pleasure working on your blocks. Everyone else, I have enjoyed the round row robin with all of you. I thank you for putting up with me and I hope everyone is happy with their blocks. I know I will be when I receive mine. Do not over rush yourself with the snowmen. Take care everyone and if you should need to reach me use my email: [email protected] . Charlottemarie

    My cherries arrived home today. And I am happy, happy, happy! Y'all did a wonderful job on my quilt. The blocks play so well together, you would never be able to tell that it was created by five different people. Will try to post a pic after I add sashing and borders. But first I've got to get the snowmen finished. It's getting too hot for them here in Oklahoma they might just melt.

    Another happy swapper!! My rows arrived safely home on Saturday. You all did a wonderful job reminding me of my mom. DH was impressed! That takes a LOT!! LOL I will attempt to get pictures ASAP, I may not get them sewed right away, I am so far behind! I still have to make 2 blocks for the Kitty row!! I have been so discouraged cause my "studio" was such a mess that I can't find anything. Seems like it takes half as much time to make a mess than it does to clean it up!! Got in there yesterday and couldn't take it anymore. Sew, no sewing yesterday. I folded, stacked and cleaned ALL DAY!! Barely made a dent, but I feel better!!

    I received my rows and I love them all. I cannot wait to get my quilt put together. I want you to know that your generosity and the time and special touches along with the extras mean so much to me. I look forward to future swaps with all of you my quilting friends!

    Is everyone getting back their rows? Checking in to see how you are doing on finishing on time. We are to try and finish by July 31. Anxious to see some photos of the ones I know have received theirs.

    Finished it up last night!! Brought it to work with me, gonna try to get it posted this morning. It really turned out nice. I also have pictures of mine to post later. I caught a summer cold yesterday, woke up in the middle of the night sneezing! Took some cold tablets, but still sneezing over and over and over and over............ Yuck! Michigan weather has gone nuts!! It is like fall weather here. Talk later, as soon as I get that package out.

    OK, it is in the mail!!!! Should be there by the end of the week. And here are some pictures of the cats I added and of my completed set for my mom. First is "kitty's celebrating spring", then "a beach party", "Any day spent sewing is a holiday", "Lovers on the fourth", and finally "Happy Birthday to you". I had fun, though this one did give me a few fits! I think it was because it was the last one and I wanted it to last. That's my story, anyway. I want to thank each and every one of you guys for the thought you put into my RR. It is perfect, and I cannot wait to get it finished so I can hang it up.
