    Yikes! Hope the doctor fixes you up in a jiffy Krystyna.

    Cognito/Cogito and Korruptyna you two are kookalukes - what a riot! Krystyna you two simply have to be partners soon so the rest of us can get our daily laughs over your conversations.

    Cogito and also Chasezzz and Krystyna - thanks bunches on the great advice! Nine patch it's is! I think I will also teach Wendy some variations with HSTs in them so I can also show her how awesome HST papers are. We'll see how much time we have. It might take more than one visit. They are coming over tomorrow so wish me luck!

    9 patch is also an easy one to show the differences that light and dark placement can make in the finished block/quilt.

    Ok, I'm putting a plea out....I have only recently learned of the wonderful things you can do with selveges, and oh what wonderful things one can do! I have been bitten bad and just realized it will take me forever to collect enough selveges to make anything of any size! So I am pleading to my doll quilt friends...if you have selveges and don't use them, will you share with me? I will gladly pay postage. Feel free to pm me. Who knows, maybe you will see it in one of my upcoming doll quilts.

    wow i step away for a day or two and you ladies are really having a party. with lovely bathing beauties and dragons and the whole she-bang. The Bathing Beauty is lovely, i never had that nice of a shape, i look more like a tank.

    so i am done and ready to go because someone gave me a heads up in June and then changed her mind so i finished it and then had to make a red white and blue oohhh whoa is me, dont make me sew any more ha ha ha!

    i found a great idea for a christmas themed DQ, so i think i am in this swap way past 50...

    i am usually caffeine free... powered by chocolate here!

    Cogito, I have been collecting selvages for a while and have quite a few projects planned for them. Here is some of my collection. Maybe I can send you some if we are partnered in the next few months.

    BuzzinBumble, I love your spelling of my secret identity!

    Lyn! Wow, what a huge load of selvages!!!

    Leg is now human sized. Came home with a wad of new Rx's -- some that seem rather scary in the side effect factor -- and a zillion appointments to get poked and prodded in very unpleasant manners.

    Quilt Received from Krisb

    Just got my little DQ today from Krisb and I'm in love with it! Thank You, Thank You, Thank You. This was my first time doing this swap and really had a good time. I hope all the pictures post as I'm doing this with my iPad. First picture is of course the full quilt, second picture is a close up Lady Liberty that is made with thread - yea can you say "WOW" and the final picture is the backing and label.
    Krisb should be getting her quilt from me today also according to USPS tracking. I hope she enjoys what i made for her as much as I love mine.
    Oh and by the way I'm originally from the east coast (NJ) and my grandfather came throughout Ellis Island as a small boy from Scottland.

    Cogito you are a fickle femme...already blowing off Krystyna for a few selvages...hmmmm...I have one saved for you anyway...I saved one after I read about using them here. I think it has your name on it!

    My internet was down for a whole day and it seems everyone went crazy with the messages...finally caught up!

    Glad your leg is the right size again, Krystyna.

    Krystyna,
    hope you are doing better now. Remember, I am a nurse, so it's hard to get out of that mode....if I were closer, I would be ministering to your needs! It's a bit of a drive though from Iowa. You now have a legitimate excuse to sit and keep your leg elevated, guess hubby will have to do the cooking for now. Lol!

    Too funny luvstoquilt! I probably am fickle....BUT, I am not abandoning my nemesis! As a matter of fact I LOVE having multiple partners....uh oh, that sounds a little weird. Well anyway, nothing says I can't make TWO quilts in a month.

    Oh he should do dishes and vacuuming too you know Cogito. I hope they can fix your leg up Krystyna and that the side effects leave you alone. Didn't realize I spelled your super villain name differently until I read your post, but it is kinda neat that way - closer to your name.

    Oh DO decide to join again in July Mamaskeeto! And do it soon before Krystyna makes the partner list.

    Sharon, I was starting to wonder where you went. You were missed!

    Yeah Brat..what is wrong with July? It is my birth month!!!

    Tara, With the internet being down and a few other things...I really missed a lot of good stuff going on. I have started going to my mother's just every other day now..gives me a bit more time for me...she is in La La land and NOTHING she says makes any sense at all but she can still let me know I should come watch her sleep every single day. She is really pouting but better her than me. I wish I had some siblings to share this one for sure!

    On Monday our power was off from 4 pm until 3 am...funny part was dear son and dear DIL do not have house keys..they come in through the garage and with no power the door won't open. (DUH!) They were at the Water Park when the storm sirens started blowing so they came to me and we had a sleepover...it really was a lot of fun. My grandchildren were at a loss for what to do...no TV, no lights, etc. We played Skipbo by candlelight and really had a wonderful time..Got to say I was glad when the lights worked on Tues morning...more to the point, the COFFEE POT!!!

    Hope you are better today Krystyna!!!! What ever happend to the spot on your head? I hope it was nothing.
