    Those are too cute! I love the kitties. Miss Snowman is adorable also. I've got to stop procrastinating and make the time to get my blocks finished this week.

    I love your kitties! That is a wonderful theme for you to do!! I just got a catalog with a lot of snowpeople and I am going to use some of them in my blocks. It's just a magazine that sells all kinds of stuff. (Collections)

    I already have one or two snowmen in mind for yours, Charlottemarie! One of them is an Arizona snowman! I won't say more, want it to be a surprise when you see the finished block!

    Oh my goodness! Great job ladies. Now, to get my butt in motion! Still not past my "thinking" stage. Been so busy, but cannot wait to get started on it. Love to see all the pictures, I am inspired!! Now if I didn't have to work..........

    MizMelly, I think you mail to me. I've been thinking about your kitties and I have figured out holidays/celebrations to go with fabric that I've got in my stash. I'll pm you my address. Wishing everyone a happy thanksgiving, hope you make some good memories this holiday.

    You will always ship to the same person no matter whose row you finished.
    Order of rows to ship:

    1. Charlottemarie

    2. Tam...Moo

    3. Buslady

    4. MisMelly

    5. RaineydayQuilter

    Example for first row shipment:

    For December 1, 2012

    Charlottemarie will mail her row to Tam...Moo
    Tam...Moo will mail her row to Buslady
    Buslady will mail her row to MizMelly
    MizMelly will mail her row to RaineydayQuilter
    Raineyday Quilter will mail her row to Charlottemarie

    I will always ship to Tam Moo, she will always ship to Buslady, Buslady will always ship to MizMelly, MizMelly will always ship to RaineydayQuilter, and Raineyday Quilter will always ship to Charlottemarie.


    Just copied this back in so everyone has their schedule.

    Have a safe and blessed Thanksgiving each one of you!

    I need to get mine in the mail tomorrow. I was all done except for the label and the note. Then my printer at home died, and I kept forgetting to write something up at work so I could print on the work printer. So, I'll get my head in the right place, do that today, then get my package in the mail tomorrow. I also did not make a fancy label, I'll send something along for everyone to sign, and then create a fancy border for it when I get it back. That works for me, I would rather just send a piece of fabric that's a "future label" and I can do the appropriate piecing later.

    WOW!! great row!! Mine is ALMOST ready to go. And I still have to think about the label and write my letter......... And this dang 'working" thing just really sucks!! I'd rather be home sewing. LOL I will get some pictures, hopefully tonight and post some "peeks". Last weekend I decided to take pics and battery dead in my "to go" camera; of course I didn't have any spares. And then I realized that my good/big camera is missing. Lost in the move. Hopefully I will come accross it soon. I figure it is hiding out with the foot pedal and power cord to my Janome sewing machine. Aaaaaaa... The thrill of the move! LOL Will mail by this weekend, with any luck!!!

    Ok, guess I lied. I was going to have everything ready to mail today, but gee, went grocery shopping on the way home from work, and then after dinner and feeding the cats, I did "cyber monday" shopping (a day late). And forgot all about it. DUH. Ok, I'm making a note to myself. TOMORROW I will have my blocks in the mail!! Really. For sure.

    Took the words right out of my mouth!! I have like 10 minutes work to finish mine and just couildn't do it last night! Now that's bad. Five 12.5 X 12.5 blocks will finish out 144.5 in length, right? still leaves the 2 quarter inch seams on the ends. Thinking out loud here. My starter is NOT 5 X 12.5, but it does end up 133.5. I don't see any problem with it, and since it is mine, I guess that is what matters. My question is this: Do the ones on other peoples quilts HAVE to be 5 blocks? or can we get expressive? What is you all's feelings on this? I will comply with whatever you decide. I will actually post a picture of mine so you see what I am talking about. I just had one subject that was wider than the 12.5, and one that didn't need that much........ Can you tell I am pretty unconventional?

    I don't mind, I tend to like quilts that have some interest and movement to them. That being said, I'll abide by what everyone else thinks!! I do, however tend to do that a lot on commission quilts since tshirts are not all uniform in size and I don't try to force cutting them to fit!
    By the way, i did what I said I was going to do, I mailed my blocks out yesterday to Rainyday, so Lynda, be on the lookout for a Priority Mail flat rate envelope! I squished mine to fit cause I don't care, they will iron out flat. I promise not to do that on everyone else's blocks. A few $$ more to mail stuff flat won't hurt my pocketbook!

    Girls, I am late as usual. On my way to Post Office now. Hard a hard time finishing up as you will be able to tell when you get it. Anyway, hope everyone got finished up, please post and let me know if you finished. I can't wait to get started on someone else's row.

    Well girls, I got my row shipped out with two hours to spare. How did you all do? Did anyone have any problems? I did, went to Cracker Barrel to celebrate and have lunch. Fell on the way out in the parking lot and have scraped elbows, knees and pride! I am really sore now. Please tell me you guys had a better day.

    Tam Moo, the center block on my row will probably be removed and replaced. I had to cut a lot of it off to make it do. Machine embroidery blocks just would not work.

    Here are my pix:
