    It is not that you have to retire is is a blessing that you can! Only one year to go....I am not so fortunate...I have years to go before I can even think about it.

    Me tto - the snow people are coming along! I hear they will work for freezer space - just kidding. I think it is time for bed - bad jokes are a true sign of fatigue.

    Did my row last night. What a pain the the A$$$$$$$. I couldn't sew a seam to save my sole. I ripped and I ripped and then I ripped some more. But now it is done. And when you see how simple my pattern was, you will wonder what my problem was?!?? Not sure and don't have time to go back and read, Do we, or do we not attach our row to the ones we get in the mail? I was gonna baste it on, but not sure what the decision was. Also, should I post a picture, or let the recipient do it, how did we decide we wanted to handle that. I have to go find the schedule too. Should have printed it, or put it on my calendar. LOL

    It is the Michigan state stone. Found on our beaches. looks different when wet so hard to find, sometimes. It is a fossil colonial coral formed in the warm waters. They can be polished up and made into jewelry, they are carved into beautiful art objects. I have found several in the sand that are already polished and ready to use. I put clear nail polish on them so they shine as if wet all the time. They are just fun to look for. And find.

    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 February 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.

    Hello Buslady! Did you have any certain colors in mind for your memory quilt? I'm ready to go gang-busters on the blocks today, hope to get 4 done, waiting on the 5th block until I get a crucial piece of fabric from my sister. I am mostly doing paper piecing, so will be using scraps if that's OK with you?? Hope I'm not being too literal with your description! (it's fun tho!!)

    Yep, it should be basted. I wasn't going to attach my row to the first row, it would be harder to remove it later. What was everyone else going to do?

    Basting row together and not join rows is what I think we said.

    Great!! 2 blocks done, mulling over design for the third and 4th. Why is it with all the scraps I have, I can never find the right color for what I need to finish a pattern??!!!

    The snow people are on the run to their new adventure.... I hope you like the additions...I sure had fun with them. I did not sew the rows together since you mentioned that you were going to make some changes. Also -I did not find a label in Name:  2013-01-13 011.JPG

    I can mail mine any time now. Signed up for the USPS on line, so maybe it will be easier than trying to get to the po. I like that I can play with the delivery type to find the cheepest way before I box it and seal it. Shall I post a picture before I post? I really cannot remember what was decided. Don't remember when the mailing date was either. I'm an 11th hour person, so I am doing good to have it done now. Now someone tell me I wasn't supposed to mail last week. LOL I can't wait afor the snowmen to be at my house. I will find something cute to add!! I think there are some cats that should be coming at some point that I think will be fun. Also, anxious to see what is done with my memory quilt. Fun fun fun!!!

    Don't quote me on this, but I think we were all OK with seeing photos of our rows??
    And we're supposed to mail by Feb 1st. I'm working on my blocks this week and also over the 3 day MLK weekend, so will be able to mail by the 25th (when I get paid again).
    Wait til you see what I'm doing with your memory quilt, Buslady. I "cherry picked" phrases and comments out of your lovely tribute to your mother, so I think you'll get a kick out of my interpretations. I do tend to be literal with my blocks! And I will take pics!!!

    I love those also! Way to go! It's okay if you post pictures if the person doesn't mind. I'd ask first.
