    Well, that's ONE way of looking at it!
    Actually, my husband celebrated his AA anniversary on that day and later when we met and I went to his 10th anniversary I decided to play a joke on him considering the day. I made a very complicated cake for him -- out of styrofoam and joint compound icing! I made a little plaster figure that was supposed to look like him ... in a plaid shirt with vomit on it ... and there were two paths to follow ... and, of course, the good path led to me! (who was vomitless). He was soooo mad that it wasn't a real cake, hahaha! But we had one hidden in the kitchen of the hall.

    So, a couple of years later we got married on that day. I don't think it was intentional, but he got a real cake and was happy! When he was getting ready to convert to Catholicism, we had to get married in the Church first since we were technically living in sin. Well, we had to do it before Holy Week and April 1st was the available day. I should mention that it was my regular Cub Scout meeting night so we had an honor guard of Cub Scouts and a great meeting afterwards with CAKE!

    Did he give you a joke ring ... one of the kind that squirts water? Or did you have a buzzer hidden in your hand? Hahahaha!!! Next year will be 25 years for us. We have to plan something fun!

    We were both19 and didn't have 2 cents to rub together. His step grandfather gave him a wedding ring, from his second marriage, but the jeweler could not size it in time for the wedding, so DH turned a piece of brass on the metal lathe and made his ring. Of course, before the jeweler got the ring done, the brass had turned his finger green. We didn't realize it was April fool's day until after the ceremony.

    Had a nice surprize this morning, my doll quilt from Cuppy arrived. Not only did the quilt arrive but a whole bunch of goodies. My cup runneth over! LOVE the quilt. My family room has old oak antiques and this quilt will find a special place in that room! If I was 6" tall I would just curl up in it and have sweet dreams. Thanks, Cuppy!

    I am going to be mailing my DQ that I made for Quiltymom, Sue, I made the block and was getting it attached to the backing and when I was looking at it I did not like what I was seeing, it was just plain and dull, so I decided to do some hand drawing and sewing on the parts of the block that were dull, well when Sue gets it and she gives me permission I will post before and after pictures of it so everyone can see it. Well hope all you ladies have a wonderful weekend!!!!!

    DQ from Sapphire_Rae

    (Drum roll.... Bugles.... Flags waving....) Introducing ... first time swapper Sapphire_Rae!

    Check out this little beauty. Lynda says this is her first time in the swap, and I was more than lucky to have her as a partner. We decided on going with a "springy" theme not tied into any particular holiday so that we could display the quilts for a longer time. She not only captured spring, but managed to slip in a little shamrock in honor of St. Pat! She also included an adorable pin cushion with jeweled pins and a petal-shaped yo-you maker (one I actually did NOT have - yay!!) The pin cushion is now mounted on my big Brother embroidery machine - not for use, but to remind me of Sapphire_Rae's skill and generosity. Thank you so much.

    OK - you did your morning neck exercise for today - sorry. It flipped back on me somewhere between there and here. Will try harder next time.

    Well, Sapphire, I have to ask, are you hooked? You do beautiful work! That pin cusion is beautiful. Another one for my bucket list. I mailed my DQ to Annaquilts on Friday and it came right back to me on Saturday. I am going to a different PO this afternoon and fine out what I did wrong. I printed the postage from postage.com and they say it is wrong. I have gone back in and cannot figure it out. I don't trust the gal I usually get at the local, she is not real friendly and won't put herself out for you. I paid 15.99 per month for the online cause it has, so far, saved me that much per month on what the po tells me. This is a large bubble envelope and she is saying it is over $10 for postage. On line was just over $3, which is closer to what I have paid for similar in the past. Grrrrrrrrr!! Leaving work early today to go see my ortho guy, now my left shoulder seems to be acting up.

    Onalee when I went to the post office to mail something out last week I was told if it's a larger envelope and over a certain weight amount it has to go priority mail - needless to say what used to cost me six - seven dollars now costs a flat twelve; when they had their last rate increase they had a few package rate adjustments as well.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one have post office issues. For a long time the clerk at our local po was so friendly and helpful and always gave advice on the cheapest way to send things. She retired, and the one we have now was probably sent over from the Motor Vehicle Office. She tried to tell me that it was going to cost over $3 to send ONE block in a manilla 5x7 envelope that used to only cost me barely a dollar to send. When I questioned she went very defensive and tried to embarass me in front of a long line of people (four stations, but only one clerk ever there). They keep trying to close that branch. Aren't the Civil Service people supposed to be working FOR the public, not against them?

    I received my DQ from nancy in louisiana today. Oh my goodness, it is absolutely gorgeous! We went with more of a spring theme and she put on handmade flowers, and there's pretty bright pink, orange, yellow, green and check out the basket!! She put the stripes going different directions to look like it really is weaved. My picture doesn't do the brightness justice. She's talented, but somehow I think you all already know that.

    Buslady, yes i am hooked! I plan to join next month, woo hoo!

    Thank you everyone for the kind words, you are a great group. I am glad I took the leap and jumped in. Nancy, special thanks to you for being a great partner.

    The quilt and Barbara are amazing! I am fortunate to be in the same guild and frequent the same quilt shop as she, when I grow up I want to be like her
