    i love fatcat designs! the lady lives within spittin' distance of where i used to live in texas! i saw the fish quilt and fell in love, and the castles for my princess dgd, and then...... i just can't find one i don't like!! i have to make her (my dgd) a tea party quilt since that is my big thing and i want to have teaparties on skype. cutest little teaparty story to share. when sally was 2 she set up a tea party for herself and her daddy. he was enthralled with how cute the whole thing was. when mommy came home, sally's daddy told her all about the teaparty his clever little daughter had put together. the mommy listened and smiled and when the daddy finished with how sally had poured tea into their cups, and went to get more after they finished drinking the first cup. the mommy smiled and said," and i bet it never occurred to you that the only water she can reach is in the toilet....."

    oh oh thank you for finding that pattern again for me. I spent a good two hours trying to locate that. argh! has anyone gone to stitchsanctuary.com tons of bom's to drool over.. sigh love those block a months I can fit a block a month in my life think I am going to do that owl one though its pretty darned cute. I need that earth tone fabric quilt and well they could be sorta earth tone just with a picture too... for the older child not the new baby. might be scary for a little one? I might just want it for me however also as its super cute .. and i am not an owl person. really want a chicken quilt. on black. crazy bright colors. Tracibug is probably going to have a swap for those.. wiggling eyebrows.. doesnt that sound fun?

    OMG, they do have adorable pants!

    Once again, I was going to start cutting last night, but ended up working on Nancia's runner for the other swap instead. I did realize I'd not done something I should have in the calculations, so I did that too. Rip roaring & ready to go now! I think it'll go together fairly quick, just a lil tedious & requires concentration.

    You're quick! Well, maybe the others in your group will finish soon. If you don't want to wait, you ship at your own risk.

    so... is the work on my runner a lil tedious and slow? or is that referring to your home dec project? just trying to keep an eye on your progress. 8-)

    Mine will be ready to go in the mail on Monday .. so I will be hoping that Dustysmom is good with that.Oh well I AM good with that and as stated if they do not return the swap well it is not something i am going to cry over. I have faith things tend to work out.

    I have a couple urgent get done by tomorrow projects so wish me a day without naps boy wouldnt that be good. I really enjoyed making this project. not sharing what kind of project it is but it came out pretty. that counts still hoping that Christmas quilted item your making for me does not get lost in the mail. I have a PO perhaps I need to send it to you to make sure you have it correct?

    Nancia, I'm talking about my home decor project. I'm actually just modifying a quilt pattern to make your runner. I think you're going to be a lil surprised when you see it though! I just hope it's not too whimsy for you!

    Elisabrat, as I've said before, if you don't want to wait, you ship at your own risk, but that's your prerogative.

    hello dont you need that PO it looks like its absolutely delicious so I will take good care of it. Honest!

    Dustysmom maybe I have an idea! ok I always have an idea. re the owl bom perhaps we can chat about that???

    I found a bom I am dying to try. its called Something to crow about. My issue is its pretty simple when you look at it. Online its like 25.00 kit per month for 13 months. Not the end of the world some have a sign up ridiculous and not paying 25.00 more to sign my name up. Ok found a store that has it for 16.95 plus shipping so like 20.00 less still but I think it can be done on my own. think is the key word. I have tons of scraps heck my supply is tons of scraps. I have pattern central here with quilterscache and 501 quilt patterns book so I am positive its all in there. its figuring out sizing and sashing distance and all.. is it worth it having to do all the searching for it all or should I just bite that huge bullet and go for it? that is huge for me that is fabric money for the MONTH or its postage for sending these goodies out. I found the center panels that are in each block on ebay for 14.00 shipped. so what to do what to do.. like I need another project. I have projects up the .. pile on the table thats where I have them.

    I hope everyone heads on into a lovely weekend coming up. Happy Valentines Day to all of you. I just made some fresh from the box german chocolate cupcakes with that coconut frosting.. and they are disappearing off my plate as I type. I wonder how many he will eat before he is too full for dinner? too many. I would be that out of 16 there will be only half by the morning. and I wont eat one.

    sikesjj, it looks like it's fairly easy blocks, but with lots of appliqued pieces too. Only the first block is up so far. Runs through August, 2014.

    I spent some time last night "cutting up" with Dusty....

    So, here's a teaser for half my project anyway. (Yes, the papers under the fabrics have all my calculating on them for each fabric!) The stitching will begin this weekend....or maybe I should finish Nancia's runner first, lol. Nancia, whatcha think?

    Nancia, yours is neither. It's just fun! OK, since you're going to be last minute too, I'm getting busy over here for a bit. I was supposed to get some more work done this weekend, but we'll see. I may be sewing the above piles of fabric all weekend

    If I haven't heard from you in a while by email, or you're not posting in this thread regularly, now's the time to comment or shoot me a message that you're still participating. If I haven't heard from everyone in the next week or so and I can't reach you by email, I'll have to take a look at moving around partners to cover. I really don't want to do that!

    I should be finished with home decor gifts for my swap partner by end of this month but she hasn't posted on this thread much. Perhaps she is busy. I do see her postings a few other places on the board so she is still here. :-) If she is in my age range...she just might have forgotten she signed up for this. LOL!! I know that is why I haven't signed up for any more. Can only keep track of a couple at a time along with everything else that is crowded into my mind. Sure makes it hard on the hostess when all the sign-upee's do not help out. Not being mean, just thinking that folks get busy and forget.
    She who dies with the most fabric, didn't sew fast enough!

    Yep Sandy, it happens. The admins require that I keep up with the participants though, so I'm doing my "due diligence" and checking up on everyone since we're nearing a month since names went out, a.k.a. "halftime". Gotta make sure nobody abandons ship without me knowing about it!

    Now I'm going to sew. Been helping my bestie clean up posts on her online yardsale group on Facebook all morning. People get so mad when you tell them they're not posting within the rules, or you delete their items because they abandoned the listing. I think I need some hot tea, a couple advil, and a little stitch therapy to calm my nerves a bit now.
