    Ok decided to post the pattern for the crazy pillows after a few asked for it.
    Not sure how this will work out but my advise is paste and copy into "word", enlarge to size needed then you may have to print out on 2 pages. Good Luck

    Krystyna, I am just going crazy. I will go crazy having done enough to be confident. not doing hand stitching girls sorry just the pattern. This is NOT my favorite thing to do but being a conformist I will go along with the theme.. yup thats me. You guys should be so proud of me I am taking a new leaf on life. I am going to go with the flow. just follow along with the rest of the herd oops I mean group..yuppers I sure hope you pick me as your partner Krystyna I know just what YOU need lol.. and btw we are so happy you took over. Your forum is always fun and light hearted yet kindness from allof the group on their encouragement and comments. Applause? yes its due..clapclap clap clap clap everyone join in!!!

    to those new or old: the sooner you add your little tidbits the better you get to know us! grand trick and we all welcome those who havent chattered much. Saves us (me) from having to make a total donkey out of myself all by myself

    hugs!

    Grandma Di -- I think you have me as your partner, so keep up the good work and send it along when you're done. I think it's looking great so far. Love the idea of a nature theme.
    I know you were still in your PJ's but ... Grandma Di is your partner? Wishful thinking sweetie!

    Well its me the conformist here... getting ready to take the plunge... yup this is going to be a royal blast and I am so happy to start it because it means I am closer to being finished and not having to do this again for a really long time. I want to savor the joy of having made one this time ..(uh hum). I love the bird fabric!I just picked up an assortment of 10" squares of all sorts of birds I think 10 of them. Not sure what I will ever do with a LOON piece of fabric so if any of you are major loon lovers let me know I think they are not the bird of the west coast lol so the will have more meaning to a east coaster. I can slip it into an envelope for you no trouble at all

    Everyone who wants to be non-crazy please raise your hand!

    Krystyna your little illustration reminded me of something my DH would say to me in an amorous moment and uh I think we have two ideas of crazy and magic so I am sticking in my own little box of comfort. If any of you have seen my quilting well its either very traditional or one step short of totally off my rocker. You can have both and surely Krystyna No one would dream of bucking the system here and going rogue on you. Especially me (angel eyes).

    Ok, I may be crazy but I am going to jump in and sign up for this swap. I have not done a crazy quilt before but I know I can do it.

    Need to add something to my ugly grey cube I work in .......... LOL maybe that is what is making me crazy.....no color.

    You are funny! A spider web to catch your memory. Now that is a thought.
    The whole thing about an extra wife or husband. Well I can relate.
    Your logic is sound. That spider web must be working. An extra wife would be the best option.
    If you get me as partner I would love a wonky chicken. Chciken anything is good. Can't wait till there is another chicken swap on the board. Those chickens are so cute!

Native Americans use a dream catcher (a sybolic spider web) to catch your dreams before they fly out of your home. Ok well my dreams are not all that so they can fly out anytime. And if it caught MEMORIES like current short term memories I might consider it (no no I wouldnt). I am one anti spider person to the 100th degree.

    Stickie Alert: We have one so your safe but post away it encourages people to come check us out! I think a wonky chicken is in my horizon.. Tracibug???

    Also: I promise to not propose to any more members when your looking ok? that is a good compromise! and the DH tells me I cant bring home another wife no way no how . ... apparently one is enough. I would like a wife! I say two men are one too many for sure. anyone else agree with me?? unless a second hubby rubbed ankles and um gave scalp massages and did dishes and laundry and smiled while doing it.. then a second hubby might not be too horrible. especially if he was a honey do guy. oh yeah.. rethinking this.. nah more in another wife. they do EVERYTHING lol..

    Well, I was out shopping and bought some goodies for the embleshment of the crazy quilt. I will be flying by the seat of my pants with this one, have never done a crazy quilt before. I am eager to see what I come up with. I have been doing some searching online for some basic instructions.

    Any input from those who have done them before would be welcomed.

    Cindy~ a lot of us did the crazy quilts for the first time last year...one of the good things about them is that anything goes haha...if you use different types of fabric in it (velvet or silk, etc.) make sure to iron (press) it well...and you can never have too many embellishments haha
