    Robin, so glad they arrived safely, but so sorry you're ill.

    Ladies, the one thing I would urge you to do RIGHT NOW is to put the names and numbers of your insurance policies and companies in your phones and in a waterproof card -- and take photos of every last thing in your home. Do an inventory NOW and please God, I hope you never have to use it. Upload it somewhere, put it on a disk and send it to a friend or family who lives elsewhere. Don't wait.

    Krystyna, you are so right about lists .... inventory everything with pictures attached and put them in a safty box ... jewelery included ..... in 1998 we had a fire and my husband laughed at me cause everytime I bought a book or a tape or really anything that costs 10.00 or more .... I had pictures of every piece of art work and every doll in my doll collection , all my antiques with prices .... the insurance company sent their inventory team in and estimated the value of everything ..... they were over 10 thousand dollars off on the contients of the house ..... because I had pictures and the inventory it was adjusted ..... you never know how or when you will need these things .... Krystyna, you know now don't you .... my sister had had a fire in the early 80's and she couldn't prove what she had .... so I was determined to do it ..... had it all in my safty deposit box @ the bank.... I brought out inventories and photos and a vcr tape of a walk through of the house .... they had to pay !!!!! Off my trip down memory lane ..... everyone have a wonderful evening ........ happy quilting .....

    Pictures as promised!! Juanitabean did a wonderful job on this DQ!! I love the animal prints, and all the different textures, and each seam is stitched with a different pattern from her sewing machine......with gold metalic thread!! I have not mastered that yet. LOL I especially like the stitch with the scissors, thread, needles, furbabies and coffee cup. About summs up a quilter, don't ya think? LOL I absolutely love it, thanks Juanita I love it.
    Nearly forgot, she also sent 3 fat quarters of very lovely fabric, thank you again.

    I missed NCIS last episode of season. What happened? I was watching "North and South" and I think tonight is the last 2-4 hours of that!

    What is feedback for? I thought feedback was the comments on the board! Elisabrat, you and I must think a lot alike. I have most of those same fabrics but not as creative as you in drawing a "Roasting Chicken", haha. Love it, love it, love it! I guess you could say I'm for the birds! I love your sense of humor!

    Juanita, what a terrific quilt! I never would have thought of using animal prints and it brings it to a whole new level. Gorgeous!

    Bertie, feedback is your "score" - take a look under your avatar!

    Well, apparently I do not have a partner this month. I've been PMing her but no response! Is it my breath? Just as well since I never get to keep anything I make!

    I am crazy about the crazy quilts I am seeing. Lisalisa...quit sewing on mine and send it on over...I am dying to see it!

    Robin so glad you are back home and finished with the blood exchange. Rest, rest, rest and I know you will be quilting again soon and this time will just be a memory.

    I watched "Law and Order" last night and had very disturbing nightmares...awful show to watch if you live alone with just one crazy "watch cat".

    Krystyna your list was really great ... I sent lv2sew2011 a care pkg. yesterday...I hope making the list didn't upset your continuing recovery.

    Prayers are there for all of you.

    Oh, good! NCIS! I forgot about that. Something to watch tonight!
    I cannot watch Law and Order. It is too disturbing to me and so it is forbidden in this apartment (almost said house)

    Sharon, no making the list was therapeutic for me. As a matter of fact I had a conversation with a woman who sells a book called "It's a Disaster!" which she had asked me to promote on my website. Funny thing ... the next day I found a copy in my bedroom and looked through it. Totally useless! (Unless you are an idiot and don't know enough not to go out for a look-see in the middle of a storm with live wires laying the puddles) I told her as much and she asked me to write something for their next edition and their blog. I don't think so. If I write anything it will be for my own book.

    Juanita - very nice quilt!!!

    Robin - good to hear that you are home. Please take care and REST, REST, REST. We all want you better.

    NCIS - y'all need to watch it and explain that crazy ending. I can't figure out who was who at that last scene. Too dark on my TV (only house in America without flat screen and high def) and even my computer doesn't seem clear to me most days. Gah! I feel so OLD -- falling apart. I see Ziva doesn't know whether or not she's going to renew her contract for next year....

    From Lynnie25

    I got the neatest doll quilt in the mail today along with a Tasmania mug rug and a cute bag made from selvages.

    Lynnie25 did go the modern way and what great results! You'll see the dress form, the crazy quilt inside the crazy quilt, and the kitty. I love it!

    As for the bag, wow, she sews a lot! I wish I would have know about using selvages a long time ago because I would have a big collection by now, too.

    Thanks, Lyn, you are a great swap partner. Sassy thinks so, too.

    I really like Ziva--I sure hope she comes back. I get a kick out of her teasing 'lover boy'. I like all the characters on that show!

    I have messed up my computer and I cannot upload pictures of the doll bed now. If you really want to see how it was made, maybe send me a Private Message and I can put it in an email to you. Hopefully. Have to wait until my niece comes out and fixes my computer.

    Hello everybody! Oh how i have missed all the camaraderie here! I just spent the last three hours reading every post this month: laughing out loud (whooping with delight sometimes) sympathizing, saying more than a few prayers... It was exhausting work...LOL
    I sure wish i hadn't missed this month's theme - crazy quilts are a favorite! I love the quilts that have been posted so far! Life is slowing its pace a little finally (knock on wood) so Krystyna I am really looking forward to joining for June. I know you haven't posted the sign up list yet, but I'm lurking in web-land, ready to pounce.

    BuzzinBumble (Lara) love your sign-off line, lol! Mine would have to read "My husband lets me buy all the fabric he doesn't know about!"

    *snort*...otay. I sent her home to you today. Careful not to drop it on a foot or anything. It could do some damage if you're not careful.

    About 10 yrs ago I had to have chemo to try to stop this crazy nerve thing happening in my body. my hair pretty much took a left turn somewhere far away.. and my incoming hair was.. well as my son put it chia pet hair. thanks kid. The upside is these things pass, its only hair and I wish you some incredible doo rags. My neighbor bought some killer ones online wish I had seen those! I will hope Robin that life gives you sunshine.

    I hear tonight we will be moving in June not July most likely. oh lucky me!
    Linda
    Here today... why what a lucky bunch we are.
