    Today was one of the worst - late for work, spilled food on my clothes, bumped into my desk right on the bruise I made when I did the same thing much harder on Friday and then I smashed my right index finger tip in the car door! Aaaahhh!
    But...then I came home to find 2 squishys - The first was shared fabric from Judith for our Round Robin and the second was from my July DQ partner. Life got in the way and I told her to put me to the back burner while she caught up on other commitments.
    Boy was it worth the wait. Aren't these just the cutest? Such cuddly flannel you want to just touch them over and over, and all the little appliqued birds and ribbon flowers - not to mention the cutest bug buttons.
    Thank you Eagleone2you2.....I love them!

    TY Krystyna - I did not know how hard it was to do things without that finger - like type, use a mouse, write......I hope it won't impede my sewing! That would really *&^% me off!
    Too sore tonight to find out - so I guess I will just watch TV as this trying to type is a pain...literally!

    Contacted my partner today (cuppy), and hopefully will have her quilt in the mail by the end of the week....had fun with it partly because it is something new for me, and also because fall time and halloween is a great time of year.

    TY QCR & jillnjo At least it isn't broken LOL

    The quilts are each 8" x 10" and the flannel makes them sooooo soft. I just want to keep touching them
    Very comforting after such a rotten day.

    Paula, not a good day for you, bruise on bruise is way too much pain and you know you should have your sewing fingers/hand/arm/shoulder wrapped in cotton wool so nothing nasty happens to impede your DQ creativity.

    BUT.... I love your little DQ and I have eagleowl2u2 for my partner this month so let the trick and treating begin !!

    urgodschild2, i have picked out 3 fabrics so far, but i can feel i'm not done! may take swatches to my favorite lqs ( which isn't very local) and see who jumps into my arms and makes me take them home! i am looking for a new source of solids since the ones from JA's shrank in cold water. never heard of such a thing! but they did hold their color, as did the batiks in ds's quilt. that was a very pleasant surprise and the happy waste of 4 color catchers. i have found connecting threads quilters basics or candy or whatever they call their solids to be good and hold their color, too, but i'd like slightly heavier yarns.
    paula-- i'm so sorry for your bad day and so happy it will never be that day again! big hugs and kisses and if you need them, i have strawberry shortcake bandaids. ( don't tell anyone, they'll all want one). they are guaranteed to work twice as fast as regular bandaids to get a smile from a child. and i've seen them work on adults, too!

    Marybeth, oh such a hard choice.. spiders or cats.. let me think on that for a nano second.. cats please! I am excited about trading too and when did you get my Henry cat to take photos for you? they could be brother and sister cats. He is a pretty cool love bug cat. When I go to bed he zooms into the room gets there before me and rolls into my arms for his evening pet and snooze. Henry time.. I swear he can be anywhere in the house but I go to bed and zoom zoom zoom and surely that is not me.

    I am so happy to hear the excitement here. fun city. BLAZE? sounds like a hot guy from one of those romance novels.. and the room went silent, her mouth went dry as he entered the cabin. HE slowly unbuttoned his shirt, his skin glistening from a hard days work, the muscles standing out like.. yeah that is Blaze. You cant kid me, patron saint of animals.. he is a heart stealer is what he is. Same with the other one, trouble in the making, women will drop at their feet, forgive them anything.. those eyes.. ok ok.. I also wanted a name you couldnt shorten. My first son is Derek. I never heard it thought it was great. Then watched tv in the hospital the morning after he was born. There is this football player on big big boy named.. derek. sigh. and I brought him home and everyone started calling him BIG D. ok so much for not shortening the name. D doesnt mind it , momma does. lol.. and my daughter, named her Genavieve with the full intent of calling her that only when she was in trouble.. Gena was what she grew up with NOW she says no one calls me that mom its GENAVIEVE please.. I said I am mom your Gena kiddo until I am mad then your in big time trouble. That is your yelling name. lol funny how names seem so important. I wonder do they help shape you because of them? thoughts..

    Here today... why what a lucky bunch we are.

    K, I was thinking the same thing as I read it, that is my 12 year old grandson yuo are talking about. I don't know how you got the description so accurate!!! He is going to be a lady killer. And there is two of him. He is an identical twin. Logan Bailey and Mason Blaze.

    Sneak peek for you miss Brat!

    Hehe I had to laugh when I read your description of Blaze, although the name does make one think of a sexy God, I know just what you mean Krystyna, my son is almost 35 and the girls have been super crazy over him since he was a baby! I have girlfriends who tell me he is Sexy! The last thing you want to hear as a mamma bear!

    But I am so proud of my Son he really turned into a fine man and this mamma is still over protective of her baby boy! I have one son and one Daughter and would love to live closer to either one of them! I just say thank God for Skype and long distance phone plans!
