    No singing in the shower for me...ever. Would have had the family come a runnin' to see what was wrong with mom. As to my SHDSP, it is all wrapped up, addressed and just waiting for the ok to take it to the post office. Getting exciting as the countdown begins.

    To all you kitty lovers, I just saw that Keepsake Quilting has a bunch of kitty-themed stuff on clearance. They have a whole line of wall quilt patterns that have cats made out of food. There's one from an ear of corn, 3 cat heads as peas in a pod, a broccoli bunch, a stretching cat from a banana, heads as a bunch of grapes, etc.

    You know how you (well I do anyway) get to a certain point in a project and go "OOOH! I hope I have enough fabric!" Well, I was at that point before I started sewing today, and about 20 minutes ago I came to the conclusion that this time, I really may be short and not just terminally paranoid. I'm going to Columbus, GA tomorrow, so I'll be taking a scrap with me and begging the fabric gods that there'll be more just like it at Joann's! Otherwise, you may hear me weeping and cursing all the way from Elisabrat's house.

    these cats come separately and there are about 20 different ones. i couldn't make up my mind which one i liked most so i entered a bom at quilters quarter in kansas. each month i get a new one. on these 4 i chose my own fabric. on the quilt i plan to make i'll use the kit fabric. they are fun to do! ehe designer is also starting a series of dog flowers. i'll look up her name so i can post it. the artist's name is helene knott. her website is under construction so there's only a home page right now. the qeilts/pictures on her home page are gorgeous!

    Dustysmom, there are some here that are concerned that there is not any chatter about mailing. Could you enlighten the masses again one more time por favor? I know last time i mentioned it you said your group.. did you break it up into say three or four groups or are we one big giant group? curiosity for me on that one. But the overall concern again is that there is not any directions yet on what to do. thanks girly.

    too cute those veggie cats. peas in a pod is my favorite. what a fun boom Nancia.

    Here today... why what a lucky bunch we are.

    Did everyone remember to set your clocks ahead this morning?

    Here's where we're at with the swap. There are 4 groups of 3-5 people. Of those, 2 groups are waiting on 1 person. The other 2 groups only have 1 person who's said they're ready. I've emailed everyone this morning who didn't recently post in the group about the status of their project.

    I'm not going to post a "naughty list" at this point because we're not past due yet. But, if you're not ready to ship yet, please let me know you're still alive and about how long until you think you'll be finished & ready to go.

    I've got to run to Columbus, GA to work for a bit today, but I'll be back mid to late afternoon to check email. Happy Sunday!

    You're in 1 of the 2 groups with 1 person not yet ready. I've got you marked down as ready to go.

    I am still working on mine, I have had some setbacks with being sick, my kids, and my house flooding. I hope to be done and ready to mail by Wednesday. I'm sorry if I am holding anyone up, but life happens and it has been happening a lot.

    Things happen & there's things that can't be avoided. As long as your family is safe, that's all that matters.

    The first group is ready to ship and has been notified by email. So.....go check your box!

    QK, I have to say I am jealous of your 'beautiful and warm' but happy for you too to be able to get out in the yard. I still have 3 foot drifts in most places but slowly melting. They might be gone by April 15th. LOL! This is like the count-down until Christmas!

    Well I took my Beau Beau to the doctor this morning and besides his crazy allergies, he has strep throat. This weekend he has been coughing a lot more and started chocking on his food, I looked at his throat and his tonsils were so swollen and red they looked like they were touching. So ten days of antibiotics, and he doesn't act like he is sick. I did find some sore throat suckers that he can have to help with the pain. Hopefully he will mend quickly.

    No productive sewing for me this past weekend - people in and out all day Saturday and yesterday my wonderful kids wanted to celebrate my birthday early as my son works on Tuesday and he won't be able to make it for dinner; great fun day bbq'ing hamburgers and bratwurst - with some camper beans and salads; blueberry cream-cheese dessert; baby girl brought appetizers - left over crawfish boil from Friday nights mardi gras party - YUMMO; local tavern hosted a cajun style mardi gras party Friday night - they had live crawfish flown in from Louisiana - made jubolia - it was a lot of fun - guess my weekend was full of celebrations and no sewing. This morning we are back at the grindstone shoveling snow - 8 inches of heavy slush snow; my arms still feel like rubber from all that lifting.

    I got my notice today from DM - ten days and counting.

    dabbler you know that all that armwork is great on the bo.. i mean bust upward movement! no snow here, hence the bean bag chest.. half filled and enjoying gravity. send your snow quick!

    I mailed my package priority this afternoon so I think we will see a picture soon. I stupidly did not photograph it for me however. duh. So please secret partner post a picture if you could be so kind? I was mostly pleased with what I sent. Now to see if the colors work, crossing fingers....

    oh Brat - I have such broad shoulders now I don't need anymore bulk - what needed bulking years ago has headed south or is in hiding somewhere under the armpit. More snow called for again this weekend.

    Finished with table runner/topper swap project now to get going and finish this one - I've done several like this before so there shouldn't be any snags - actually DM has been cracking the whip making sure we stay on task; who's been giving her all the pointers - she's doing a great job moving us all forward.

    So sorry he is sick. Where did you find the suckers? I myself have been sick going on 2 weeks now.

    I save my whip cracking for D-day, lol. There's still 1 person I haven't heard back from yet, and that frankly has me worried.

    13-1/2 hr day today, so no sewing for me tonight, just a lot of heating pad for my neck.

    DM, Hope your neck is better tomorrow. Bummer about the one person not answering. Seems life must always get in the way for someone. Hope she emails soon. There are still a few days left.
