    CharlotteMarie,
    I just got mine mailed out to you this a.m., so it should be there around Thursday. I had trouble with one block, I'm still not happy with it but I can fix it when it comes home.
    BusLady, I agree with MizMelly on the size of the blocks. I'm ok with 5 same size blocks or 3 rectangular blocks or small blocks stacked - I like the added interest it gives the quilt.

    Charlottemarie, I received your row today...the snow women are so so cute Nd I love the fabric in the nine patch blocks too. Would you prefer more snow-people blocks with more Nine patch blocks or just snow people?... Inquiring minds want to know.....

    Those snowment are "to die for" I cannot wait to get that one. i am really into snowment this winter for some reason. Plans for a couple of things if I ever get caught up. I feel like such a slacker. My row is complete, I have my letter done, just need to proof it and see if it needs anything else, and I have to make my label. I PROMISE to have it in the PO before the end of the week. It is my intention to get home early tonight and finish it up for tomorrows mail. Oh, and I got my pkg from Tam...Moo Saturday. It is great, I can't wait to start on it. Been perusing the stash to find something that will work. Do you have a particular color scheme you want to stay with? Would you prefer to stick to the blue as the dominant color? Do you want us to stick to the colors in your floral boarder? So many ways to go with this, not sure what direction to take.

    MizMelly,
    Your kitties were waiting for me in my mailbox yesterday. They have been very well behaved. I'm still deciding on what kind of friends to make for them. I'm toying with the idea of a Mardi GRAS kitty, or am I thinking too far out of the box with that one?

    Tam Moo, I really would prefer more snowpeople. I worked on putting some embroidery snow people in 3 blocks and they just didn't look good. I would love to have all snowpeople. The 9 patch and the middle snowperson block are going to be erased when they come home again. I just was in a time crunch and had to do something to get them out on time.
    RainydayQuilter, I will be watching for your row and let you know as soon as it arrives.

    buslady,

    You do whatever your heart desires - if you want to pull the colors out of the flowers that is great or if you want to stay with the blues that is great too - I love everything about country life so just have fun with it and I know I will love whatever you add.

    Charlottemarie, Your snow people are just too darn cute! and so snowpeople I will add - something new for me I have not ever done snowpeople but I love them so I'll get busy!

    Well, I got those beautiful cherry blocks yesterday and I love them all. Lynda, your quilt is going to be beautiful. I especially love your scotty dog! Could I post pictures of your row or would you prefer it to stay anonymous?

    CharlotteMarie,
    Yes, you can post the pics. I've tried a couple of times to post them this week, and I couldn't get my iPad or laptop to cooperate. Of course I was trying to do it when I didn't have very much time, which I'm sure was most of the problem. I wasn't happy with the big flower type block, it needs something.

    These pictures do not do her blocks justice. They are fantastic!

    BeeYooTeeFul!! Love those cherry blocks! I've already started mentally cataloging the cherry fabrics I have! And I better set them aside so that when this one comes to me, I'll have what I need to get started right away!

    I got my row from TamMoo last week, been trying to get caught up so I can work on it, but problly won't be before Christmas, Though I have looked at material and have a mental picture of what I might do. I also, finally, got my row sent off to MizMely this morning. Broke my embroydery machine, so made my label without the embroydery. I can add it later if I want. Also, embroydered moms and uncles name on freehand, that will HAVE to be fixed!! Anyway, just needed to get it out the door! Love the pictures, hope we get to see more.

    Don't feel bad, Buslady! I didn't have time to do a proper label myself. I was going to paper piece a design and make it real fancy. Guess I'll do that when I get the signed fabric back! I'll be looking for your blocks and let you know when I receive them!

    MizMelly, just checked, it is in AZ and shows delivery tomorrow. Wish I could have hand delivered it, maybe one in the future. LOL My dad and sister live in AZ, used to come out every January, but haven't in a couple of years. I do hope to change that by next year!!

    Don't worry about label, we can always do one later if we want one, I had trouble getting my things out too so I forgot about it. I thank God everyday we have such a good group! I'm in another one, but it's not at all like this one. I found some more cherry fabric and a fabric by Kaffe Fassette (sp) i needed for another group.

    Boy, I hear ya!! That's why it's nice to sit back with a cup of hot coffee and a bagel with your feet up! I can't seem to get much done after work at night. Especially with all the Christmas stuff to do. But I try not to go anywhere on the weekends, that is my time for sewing. Last Sunday I met my DD and DGD for breakfast, took the dog for a walk on the beach, and sewed. Period. I'd like to do that 24/7. By the way, Petosky stones are easier to find this time of year, but my dog don't like to walk in the wet/hard sand. He stopped, and stood his ground. LMAO at him. Found 5 or 6 nice petosky stones that day. Lost one down the garbage disposal. OOPS!! DH was able to flush it through, but he couldn't retrieve it. He's on the naughty list. Right along with me. LOL Merry Christmas to all. Hope some of the others at least take a breather for a fresh cup and some chit chat.

    Hello!! Just darting in to say YES, I received your package Buslady!! I am contemplating some fun blocks based on your lovely letter about your mother!! (in January).
    I sure do wish I had time for more than a 15 minute break right now. I'm in charge of moving our library (academic library that is) at the college. Seems they don't want us on the 2nd floor anymore, so we are moving to the 5th floor, and the area is still under construction. So we loaded rental book carts on Monday and cleared the shelving since it has to be dismantled and moved first, and the lighting has to be removed and also installed upstairs. The staff is madly packing areas (we have a LOT of "stuff" to move!!). We've been at it since Monday and are still busily packing and tossing!! Maybe by Friday afternoon (at 4:30), I can sit down, put my feet up and have a G & T or something equally "adult". We are off from the 24th through the 1st, and when I come back to the office on the 2nd, we'll be doing this all in reverse the rest of that week. So, y'all enjoy your relaxation times, have a raisin cinnamon bagel and a cup of coffee for me!!

    Oh, my. Maybe we should bring the party to you. We could each grab a cart and empty it while we party. Oh, wait, you said this was a library. I suppose you want the books put back in some sort of order. Ha Ha. We have two, three-day weeks coming up. I am hoping to do some serious sewing!! Keep in touch as you can.

    Well, finished all the hard work of packing. Now it's time to sit back and relax through the holidays (I am off for winter break as of 4:00 today). Then, when we return on the 2nd, we will be unpacking and loading the shelving in our "new" location. Theoretically. If they pay the maintenance people to work over the break that is.
    Anyway, I am more than ready for time off to relax and do "fun" things!! I just finished my last commission and will be delivering that tomorrow, so the only obligations I have now are for things I really want to do!! Like quilting!! Yippee!!!

    Enjoy your time off. I used to work for the school. I miss the breaks. Summer off. Oh, wel. We always earned those breaks.
