    I am beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel here ladies. Yea!

    Yesterday I completed a huge project I have been working on, it's done but snipping threads. Then to get it off in the mail to its owner, hopefully tomorrow.

    And what this means is tomorrow I can open up the USPS package that has been sitting on one of my works tables since the day it arrived. Babeyruth, I can't wait to open it! Seeing all the gorgeous pictures of it growng have been killing me not to be able to play with it yet. Outisde of maybe needing to augment some of my fabrics, I think I should be able to have it done and out the door on its way to you before the deadline. Barring life.

    Dh and I will taking a month long road trip during September heading to Wyoming, Montana and if time permits, Idaho. We are so excited! So if you know any great don't-miss diners, shops, places to see/experience, please share. While we will be seeing Glacier, Yellowstone, Teton and other National Parks, we really want to experience the towns and communities. We will be going through Minnesota and one or both Dakotas. Really no plans, no itinerary, no commitments-just going free.

    The big decision is -do I really want to drag along a sewing machine for the times he is fishing? Maybe my handcrank? Knitting seems so much more portable-and much lighter to haul around. :-)

    best,

    Anna,
    The elephant quilt is adorable! And how ingenious to leave the ears flappable. What baby isn't going to have fun playing with those?[

    Best,

    UOTE=Annaquilts;6177882]Yes there is one more whigrose's sewing machines row.

    Off topic but here is a link to the elephant baby quilt I just finished for my grandson.

    Whigrose I am actively working on your row. I also hope to have it done by the dead line. When ever people walk into the studio they always comment how much they like it.

    Well that was quick Anna, you knew what you were doing for sure. And look at that, a whole extra 12 days to spare.

    I worked on it almost exclusively since I got the elephant quilt and batik blocks done last week. Just yesterday I got to bed at 1 am last night and got up at 6 am this morning. Yes, I did know where I was going thanks to your help. I hope whigrose will like it as it is rather familiar. (hint) I did this hoping to tie it all together.

    I should be and will for another six weeks till it is officially my birthday. The girls decided since both their dad and I turn 50, his on June 3 and mine on August 23, that the middle of July was best to celebrate as not to favor either of us. the party is at 2:00 tomorrow, when can i expect you all?

    Anna,
    I have seen your work, multiple times in fact. You do top rate stuff! I would NEVER change anything you do for me.[

    ~~dancing ~~ can't wait to see what you have done for me. If you'd like, post a pic. If you don't want me to see, shoot me a pm and I won't peek.

    Best,

    Beth I'll be early to help with the last food preparations. Afterwards can we play with your long arm?


    Aaahhh I see whigrose will be fashionably late.

    Cool

    Last night DH helped me pack up whigrose's row robin and today it should start its journey home. I am happy how it turned out and see it go home but it is a bit bitter sweet as it is the last of this row robin as I am now done. Of course I do get the excitement of putting my rows together and I hope to post pictures of the top when it is pieced but I'll miss "our" little row robin group. Special thanks to all who participated and the wonderful work you did on my rows. I really enjoyed the privilege of working on your rows too. Please post pictures of your completed rows/top if you can.

    Oh Anna, how exciting for me! I cannot wait to see all the rows in real. Anna, feel free to post a pic if you want to.

    This leaves only babeyruth's rows out and they are safe with me. Hoping to get to them before too long.

    So ladies, where were you. I was outside on the corner of the street waiting anxiously for you to be there. Boy was I disappointed. So Mariposa came instead and we played out on the longarm or at least admired my new blocks I received with the gorgeous applique that I will be assembling this coming week after I set my machine back up from the cleaning the girls made me do. My house is immaculant. Then the girls gave us a weekend getaway in Coeru D'Alene so we will be having a little time away, just the two of us, sounds good, but yet leaving the house unattended with just the kids? Have to think on that one. Was this a ploy? LOL
    Excited to see the rows going home although there is still time for those who want to use it to the max. I have three other rows to do in another row robin because we had some issues, but all is good, they are moving along. Life is wonderful, but gives us our time constraints when it comes to our quilting.

    Hi all,
    Just popping in to let you know I am still around. Our lives are spiraling right now (have been for the last several weeks) and someone or something is messing with our navigational compass - we're not really sure which direction our bow is pointed.

    Basically, I want to once again assure Ruth you have nothing to worry about regarding your rows. With the state of our house being readied for sale in the near future, I am not able to access my sewing room and will not be able to for about another week - I have three very large parrot cages in here while the room they will be moving into is being painted from top to bottom. We just completed the hardwood floor in that room yesterday.

    Ruth, if you have any concerns, please pm me and include Quiltermomma in the cc line. She and I are off-line friends and knows it is only life that has prevented me from meeting the time constraints for this exchange. Other than not meeting the deadline, you really have nothing to worry about.

    On another note, my rows came home and they are each and all fantastic! I am over the moon about them and cannot wait to join them together, although that is some time away. Thank you ladies for your contributions. It amazes me the work total strangers are willing to do for others. You ladies have exceeded even that.

    Thanks, and best,
    d

    Doing the happy dance! Finally was able to start and complete Babeyruth's row and they will be heading to the Post Office in just a few. Babeyruth, thank you so much for all your patience - waiting on these rows was a trial, I'm sure.

    You won't be disappointed. Your rows are my absolute fav! I totally love the colors; unfortunately my camera didn't pick them up accurately, but anyone that has worked on this set knows how vibrant the colors really are.

    Enjoy. And please, send us all a pm when you put this baby together.

    best,
    d

    Well a kind friend suggested that some small blocks of flying geese or so might look nice in the sashing of my quilts. I just haven't gotten to it. this one is for me so it will tend to get pushed to the bottom as I have birthday and Christmas gifts to make. But yes if you made your top or quilt please share.
