    I can't remember who we were supposed to notify when we mail the DQ's. Can someone tell me who is filling in for Krystyna?

    Quiltermomma,

    I put your DQ in the mail today. I forgot to take a picture before I sealed the envelope. Hope you like it.

    I have received a lovely DQ today from Kitsykeel.
    Kitsy was trying to think of something that says we are thankful, the song by Maurice Chevalier kept coming to her mind. Thank heavens for little girls, without them what would little boys do. Therefore the cutest little pink and blue quilt. I'm going to have to keep it away from the grandkids. Thank you sooooo much, I love it!

    Now that was a great creative interpretation of thankful. I love it! I was just thinking of Neldas signature on the QB it says be a donor become a legand.. I am a transplant recipient who would not be here without that donation. This is a tough holiday for me. i am so thankful its not funny. Grateful, thankful, humbled. Yet I am sad for the family who lost someone and this is their first holiday without their loved one. It is to say the least a mixed bag of emotions. I am also waiting for another transplant with hope. Thanks to science and medical advancements I can hope. That is what I am thankful for this year. and of course, you guys.. you have been here with me, supporting me and encouraging me. Quilting has helped me more than anyone here can know. I had forgotten how to and have been held by the hand by several of you until I get what I am forgetting to do. Hugs to all you for your kindness. What a lucky lady I am.

    Nancia, surprise me ! but I am thankful for good friends, good food and quilting - that is aside from my amazing family Does that help??

    Your quilt is coming along nicely, just got a little more handwork to do on it, then baste and quilting. Hope to have it done this week and ready to send by week's end. I was without my good sewing machine for over 2 weeks but have it back now so it will be smoking hot all week

    Well.... since you mentioned that.... What do y'all think??? I am willing to do the hosting part and willing to swap...
    I think in the past, there has not been a Dec swap mainly because so many have a number of things going on and don't have a lot of extra time. So that being said, I have had a few ask about a Dec DQ Swap. If you want to do a December swap post it here that you want to and ALSO SEND ME A PM. I'm thinking if we do a Dec Swap, should we have a theme or just quilter's choice? Y'all speak your minds and let me know.

    Barbara and Kitsykeel, What a beautiful little quilt, the shades of pink and blue are just right!

    It turns out that I have done the same theme in a different way. My lovely 9 year old friend Lily helped with the quilt. She was here last Thursday morning with her mum and brothers and sisters. Lily's job was to choose the colours for the quilt. I had two piles of fat quarters on the table ready for her and told her how many I wanted her to pick out from each pile. Once she had done that I asked her decide the order to arrange them in, and she even did a bit of the sewing! That's all I can tell you for now because I don't want to spoil Handi's surprise, but I can't tell you how pleased I am with the result. Lily has a fantastic eye for colour, there's nothing little girly about it.

    Then in the afternoon we went out to a charity dress making session. You can see pictures here www.sewscrumptious.blogspot.co.uk and you will all wish you had been there. It was the most exciting day you could imagine.

    OK IT'S OFFICIAL! There WILL BE a December DQ Swap! I'll get the sign up sheet posted in the next day or two.
    No pressure to feel like you have to sign up for the December swap. I know many are really busy with all sorts of things happening with family,work and church. And then there are those like me who lead a really boring life and have plenty of time on their hands. Not sure on theme yet, still thinking.

    Elisabrat!!! I got my "present" today! Thank you so much! I hung it up on my office wall as soon as I received it. And the back.... well since you instructed me not to share...but I love it almost as much as the front! The "girls" are so cute on that fabric. Thank you and I am so glad that you received your gift of life as well. You should receive you "present" by Wednesday.
