    It cant be said too much; everyone might be at different levels of experience, but that just adds to the fun. I cannot believe how i have grown as a quilter since joining this group. And i believe that to be true for most of us. When i get a quilt in the mail, it is the thought and effort i see, not the workmanship. As long as the gifter has tried their best, i am happy. I am always happy to trade with a new quilter, old quilter, any quilter! Have fun and be happy.

    Oh, the quilts coming in are outstanding. I worked on mine for annaquilts last night and today. Became close buddies with my froggie stitcher. We had a rrriippping good time. Not satisfied with the way it came out, so am looking for a way to "enhance" its beauty. Prob be mid week before it will be ready to post.

    I am sitting in my bed sewing pieces together whilst watching a programe called "call the midwife". It is based on the diaries of a midwife working in the late forties early fifties. It is nearly 9pm here and mothers day so I am not in bed in the afternoon, honest.

    Two bits on the postage question: My good friend works at our local post office. They are instructed to sell the highest price first. Only if you ask is there any other option will you get the next lowest and finally the lowest. She always sells the lowest and thinks its stupid but of course only when no one is looking. I am not one to jump on the highest unless its only a half dollar difference. otherwise slowboat for me. New Zealand is not too expensive to ship to either. The thing in cost is you have to also look at our dollar exchange rate so sometimes it sounds horribly expensive for what they are paying but if we took our 1.00 there we would be getting 1.5 or even 2 times for it so all relative I think.

    I can't wait til Aprils swap. I think I am able to breath enough to jump on the ship again. Will tell in just a week if I get that quilt for quilters done I am home FREE!!!

    I have my DQ ready to quilt. Have just spent 5 glorious days at our shack, sitting on the verandah reading 'Amish' novels and sewing like crazy, enjoying the beautiful autumn (hot, hot, hot) weather ! Now back home and I get my Elna back tomorrow, foot pedal replaced - oh my I have so many quilts just waiting to be quilted.

    Annaquilts, I worked on your DQ on Saturday and Sunday. I used the little twister. Boy are the directions on that thing vague!! It didn't turn out like I expected, sewed it together, ripped it apart, sewed it back together, ripped it apart again. Laid it out on the floor, said POOP!! sewed it back together, now am embellishing. I won't use that tool again, I assure you that! LOL I am very happy with the way it is turning out. Bet you never thought that was going to be my next sentance, did you!! Gonna be next weekend before I get it in the mail, I am sure. Out of town yesterday and most of today. Catching up at work this afternoon. Time change is Kicking my a**! It don't make any sense, it is only an hour!! For goodness sake!! Loving all the stuff coming in, can't wait to see more. I have a teaser, but no time to post. Maybe tomorrow.
