    Glad I'm back home. Had a wonderful time in NYC last week with my brother and family. Went to the City Quilter, the only quilt store in NYC that I know of. Bought some fat quarters of NYC themed fabric, a batik and a pattern. T hen we walked to 34th st. big mistake, lots of shopping there, then to 42nd Times Square, HUGE mistake! lol! I had fun though, we also visited the 9/11 memorial site. That was very sad with all of the l ives lost on such a tragic day in history. I did take photos of all the area and the new Twin Towers is going to look beautiful. Glad I'm in the Sept. SP swap, love these swaps!

    I work in the Chrysler Building should have stopped by to say hello I have been to the City Quilter once. It is a nice shop although I love the quaint country shops better. I also have the fabric with the subway map on it, but I haven't made anything with it. What do you plan on making with your NYC fabric? Maybe I will pull it out and figure out what to do with it. Glad you enjoyed your trip to NYC. I haven't seen the 911 memorial yet. Not sure if I am ready for that but I have seen pics and it is beautiful! Would love to see pics of your visit!

    Beeboop, had I known you worked in the Chrysler building I would have definitely took the time to meet you! The 9/11 memorial was nice, they are still working on the museum. It was my second time at the city quilter. They have expanded there shop a lot and have beautiful batiks, but being NYC prices they were very sky high..so I only bought 1/2 yard of one batik. I have fat quarters from my first visit of nyc fabric and this time they had different ones. Here's a link to a scrappy bag that I have made so many times. I made one for myself a while back for work and it is so handy! http://www.modabakeshop.com/2011/04/...arm-pouch.html it is easy to make and all you need are 7 5" squares and two fat quarters plus a 9" zipper and fusible interfacing. Some of my secret pals have received them as part of their gifts but they are so fast to make and they make great gifts! So I'll be using my fat quarters from nyc to make myself another bag for work so that I can interchange. I will try to upload the pics but my guy needs the puter now so I'll this week.

    I didn't know you worked there either! I love that building and one Halloween, long, long ago I spent the night dancing with someone dressed up as the Chrysler Building! I can actually see it from the bay side of our island -- can you see me? I'm waving!

    Ahh, if you're going to come visiting, dive in and do a package too, you've got enough stash stuff to fill a tanker, I bet, and if you don't send anything other then say some of your wonderful beach plum jam, which I'm still hoping to be a lucky sp to get some.....would remind me of all the years we stole away to Nantucket off season for a weekend or 2....and now I'm 5 hours minimum to any beach in any direction. Gone are the days I saw the water 5 days a week as I commuted into Boston daily...

    QuiltNut4Ever, I really like that pattern you make for your Secret Pals. Remember me if you get my name and I'll be very happy - I won't care what fabrics you use either!! Glad your trip was good. I've only been to NY once in my life and I was about 16 at the time - LOOOOONG time ago! Hubby and I traveled for the government many times during our working years, but when we retired, we decided to stay home - and stay we have. Trips are short and between sons and sister, that's it. Take care everyone and stay safe if you're in the path of Isaac.

    I know we all like to receive packages in each month, but if anyone would like to contribute toward a one-sided package as an act of kindness for a QB member who doesn't do the swap, would you contact me?

    I am BUMMED EVERYONE.....I think I am going to have to sit this month out also. Finances are tight! But I will pop in and read and look at whatever pictures come in. My Computer is VERY OLD and SLOW and I am looking at replacing it, so my dollars must be saved for the new computer.

    Beeboop and Vanogay you're quite welcome! They're very easy and also wash very nice too. I'll keep you in mind Vanogay if you're my Sept. sp. Everyone have a good day and if you're in the area of Isaac please be safe.

    Oh my dear friends, I am visiting, but signing up? *sigh* I don't think so.
    Too busy with a million things ... tracking down missing quilts for the Doll Quilt Swap (*ahem*)
    Finishing up the Patriotic Quilt for the Joann's employee ... which I am doing right now.
    Finishing sea horses and pink ribbons and who knows what all else for friends on the board ...
    And I have a mountain of tomatoes and peppers and figs and blackberries and raspberries that need to get processed fast ... we got sprayed last night for mosquitoes and I wanted to get as much picked as possible before the truck came through ...
    But ... today is the 29th ... and the deadline is the 31st ...
    If only people would be happy with whatever I put into a package so I wouldn't have to take the time for special shopping ... which can't be done right now ... c'est la vie!

    Oh Krystyna...I wanted you to get my name..no special shopping needed..just some beach plum jam..I have no idea what it is but you made it sound like a piece of heaven!

    Beeboop, you work in the Chrysler Bldg? That is my favorite building in all of the world! My late MIL lived in a penthouse on Park Ave and I used to just sit on her balcony and enjoy that view. I was able to tour it once..just so wonderful!
