    AlaskaAlice, thanks for letting me know you got the package. I have to 'fess up. I did not make the patchwork purse for your sewing notions. Got it at a retreat a couple of years ago and never used it. Thought you might be able to. Will post a picture for you of your quilt "I'm a Little Off But I'm Not Completely Crazy". Now you know how I think, haha.Click image for larger version.

    AlaskaAlice, not to worry. I will love whatever you make. I'm very easy to please. It's the love and thought behind the stitches that count, really. I had assumed May would be "baskets" and I had just seen a pattern for one somewhere on the web for a "crazy quilt style basket" so I started on one and then May was announced "Crazy Chaos". While I love all the crazy quilts, I had not started off right to do the whole thing in 'crazy' so stopped while I was ahead. I liked the way it turned out so glad you do, too!

    I've made some pretty obnoxious pieces, but this one takes the cake. My partner said she kept putting stuff on until she ran out of room, therefore I vowed to do the same. I think I might out crazy her. We shall see. Here is a teaser

    ummmm, was I supposed to do it all by hand? Cause I did not do that.

    My husband just looked at it and said, "Is it supposed to be that gaudy?" EXCUSE YOU MISTER?! Next he will be asking if the brownies are supposed to taste that ex-laxy.

    hmmph

    self portrait

    Ok self portrait. Decided it could be rather easy after all. You see about 10 yrs ago I lived in Sedona. My lil sis came out for a visit we did the tourist things took pics here there all over. She then came back to California and showed the photos to my aging mother. She would have been 83 at the time. My mom kept saying oh and ah and then she grabbed one picture and told my sis.. Linda looks so good in this picture! my sis said she almost choked from lauging. You see mommas eye site wasnt all that. That good picture of me was a tree. A TREE! so there is my self portrait ladies.. I apparently am a tree. A narly pinion tree at that. lmao.. it was so funny she blew up the picture and framed it for me. NOW WHO WAS THE BRAT THERE???
    Linda
    Here today... why what a lucky bunch we are.

    Jean D...are you okay? Did they catch the fugitives????
    Bertie..your little quilt is FABULOUS! Loved your method of housekeeping..."pilot here and there"..funny.
    I am Lisalisa's lucky partner and I can't wait to get my hands on that little quilt! Maybe you did get more stuff sewed on yours than I did but I am not sure! I will keep you posted.
    Robin I hope all is going well and according to plan!
    Brat do you really look like a tree? I am thinking a self-portrait in the style of Picasso...you know an eye here, a nose over there, etc...I think I will stick with where I live...in a cornfield with Chicago far off in the background. What was this Manhattan woman thinking when she moved to Illinois? Grandchildren that is what!!! Do miss NYC but planes still fly!

    Sharon, you're not missing much in Manhattan. It has changed so much since I lived there ... a real nanny state now.

    LisaLisa, if memory serves me correctly, I think Brenda21's husband made a similar remark last year! Philistines -- all of them!

    Today I have learned that the old saying "what does not kill us only serves to make us stronger" is so very true ..... started the neupogen shots .... they make the stemcells multiply and to do that they work in the bones ..... making every bone in a persons body ache sevearly ..... it took the shot about 30 minutes to start working and OMG thank GOD for pain pills ..... 500 mils ..... my hips and spine hurt so bad ..... now the fact that I gave myself the shots was ok ... but two of them!!!!!!! ....ohhhhhhhhh wow .... I might add that was the easy part ...... I have to take them for 7 days ...... ouch !!!!!!!!! .... at day 4 a heart cath goes in with surgery ...... at day 5 they will start running my blood through a machine that will seperate the stemcells from the blood then put it back into me .....lol..... that could take till next Friday to get enough ...... then home for 3 or 4 chemo treatments .... God will be the pilot here ...... that was yesterday @ 6pm..... still hurting when the pills wear off and another shot tonight @ 6........... no more posts from me till this is over ...will be looking at the beautiful quilts ..... pain pills are a good thing and I will be trying to stay ahead of the pain ...... happy quilting ladies ........

    thanks brenda......i have a 22 in square are muslin I have been working on....further along so far. I am liking it. Kinda like doing a scrap quilt in every direction. LOL no set pattern just place and sew. I think so far the hardest has been making sure all the ends are completed seams. I know I can cover them with the embleshments. This has been fun so far. Cant wait to see it when I get done with the piecing. Hope it is before I take mom out for her birthday dinner.

    Cindy, no matter which way you go, it's going to conflict with a quilters sense of order. Just embrace the funk and go with it. Mine is so funky, but the more funky it gets, the cooler it becomes.

    I also wanted to send Robin my well wishes. Here is a little sunshine for you. She always makes me feel better.

    Thanks Lynnie25......I am heading out the door soon for a dinner date and taking mom and dad with me for her birthday and mother's day.

    I will be adding the crazy stitches tomorrow. The camo fabric is actual minky. I will have lots of fun with the embelishments.
