    My little witch arrived!!

    Got home last night to a wonderful surprise. My squishey! Sue, you outdid yourself, I just LOVE it. I have it hanging at work, cause that's where I spend most of my time. LOL More people get to see it, I will take it home before Halloween so my DGK's can see it. Thank you so much Sue. You can't see it in the pictures, but it is hand quilted around the Witch. And those buttons are so cute. I like all the "dots'. Thank you sooooo much! Can't express my happiness. Just picture me old, fat, grey haired, jumping up and down and twirling in cirles!!! Ok, now that I ruined your dinner, here are the pictures. The third one is a picture looking in the front door of the office and down the hall. You can see that I have quite a display going!! Sues is pretty small in the picture, but EVERYONE that comes in that door will see it. The last one is a tease for Sue. I will mail mine by Monday. I was gonna say Friday, but why set myself up for failure? HaHa! :.)-

    i suppose i could take a sneak peak pic for urgodschild2 to get primed to receive her dq, or i could just say, ' there is orange involved. and green.' i'm pretty sure it will go out tomorrow or friday. i'm not far from done. since i will be up most of tonight into the wee hours, i might get it quilted and bound ( that's all i need to do, oh, and labelled. i always seem to forget that!). happy halloweeny!
    The only bad days are the ones you don't get.

    Thank you,
    I am hooked on crazy quilts, i love to embellish and when it's a theme it's so much more fun. My son wanted this one.

    finally made it to the post office today. I had a DQ from hobbykat1955. It is really great. I thought my husband's doctor was going to take it with her. She has 4 sons and wanted it for them. Told her "It's mine --all mine" (evil laugh included.
    Kathy--Thank you so much.
    It is reversible so she sent the label pinned to the front. Also sent small wooden clothes pins to hang it with.
    She will post picture as I can't get this camera to work for sharing pictures. I have her DQ ready to put the back together the front is finished.
    I really love my quilt.

    same as the great cats on the pumpkin quilt piece that was shown..

    this is a super fun month. I think everyone is putting in extra effort this month. i want them all.. now can i have the trio of tree quilt or maybe just the birds in the nest one or maybe the orange one too.. oh yeah I got my gorgeous every color in the crayon box with KITTIEs on it quilt that i am Not sharing laid it on the couch back for one minute while I hung a hanger for it and turn around.. my orange kitty is laying on it like.. hey thanks! he was not too willing to gift it back either. Now I need a quilt of the month for kitties so the leave mine alone.

    Been working on Susan's little quilt every night this week. (next month I need to do something a little less involved), that is a hint, I guess! LOL I am having a ball with this one. I have done several techniques throughout, so deffinately didn't get bored!! DH thought it was too dark. Hope Sue doesn't agree with him!!
    Elisabrat, it is what I call "traditional" quilting. All done with templates, not rotary cutters and no chain sewing. And LOTS of set in seams!! Actually, in 2 blocks, I have not done a single straight seam! Each month she gives us the pattern for a block and we bring the finished block back the next month to get a new one. No sewing at the class, just discussion and she shows us stuff. The first class was the best cause she showed us how to make our templates, how to cut them and how to sew them. Very interesting, though I don't think I will be making very many quilts using this method!!
    All the quilts are just gorgeous so far. I usually have several pages to read, and my memory is REALLY bad, so rather than make a mistake, I don't usually comment on each individual quilt (can't remember by the time I get to the end).
    I do, however, remember the bright orange, Krystyna, and that one has GOT to be mine!! Oh, that's right, this is not the secret pal swap, I know who my partner is, dah!!!! And a good partner she is!!!! Just dawned on me. I think I read somewhere back there that Krystyna was going to be my partner, but something changed! She should send me one, too!! Can you do 2? LOL LOL Lots of DQ's this month and I wouldn't mind having any one (or all) of them hangint on the wall where I could see them!! Back to work.

    Next month, Onalee. I'm reserving you in advance!!! Although I have to say I love partnering with new members, too. (I don't know if THEY love it so much, but that's another story!)

    Oh, my, so the pressure is on. Actually, since I will have my sister here for a week, I had debated on joining next month. But I'm too afraid I'd miss something. LOL So, I am thinking on my DQ for next month and thought I might get it started early. Of course, I've heard that before. Did we choose a theme for next month? I've either forgotten or missed it if we did.
