    Ronda - guess what I didn't send a return label either. I missed that memo somehow. Dang I am sorry I can pop it into the mail if you want me to. Please let me know and I send it out tomorrow.

    Peggy, sorry that has happened to you. The nerve of some people. What do they think they have to gain? I guess some people find pleasure in making someone elses lives miserable!

My daughter had bought the house 3 years ago. It is right across the street from me. She only lived in it 6 weeks when she was killed in a car accident. It is her 'fiance' who is there with his new girlfreind. They told me 6 months ago they were moving out at the end of October. So when I gave them the final electric bill they went crazy. But it's not like they have no where to go. They have another house they are moving into Nov. 1. See, I am freaking crazy at this point. I wanted to do more sets but you see why I can't. UGHHHHHH

    Boop, that is terrible, be glad they will be gone! I could not imagine how hard that must be to live across the street from the man that was going to marry your daughter and his new girlfriend! and then they take advantage of you!

    My heart hurts for the loss of your daughter.

    I had a rental for a while and It was really hard for me to understand how people can live in a home that does not belong to them and think they can do what ever they want to it! The people who lived in my house managed to stay there for a year and half, never paying the full month rent (never except a partial payment for rent because if you do the eviction date moves each time, well it did in California in the 1990's)

    When they finally moved out they stripped the house so bad, even taking built in appliances, light fixtures, fire place insert! They even took doors from the bed rooms and faucets from the bathroom! I will never own a rental again.
    Give a smile away today, someone you meet might need one!

    Tealfalcon I want one also! that is the cutest idea! is it your pattern? I love Christmas blocks that are showing up in here, so much creative energy!

    I am making a few 'filler' blocks for anticipating holes. I am just taking a piece of Christmas fabric and putting ribbon on to make it look like a little package. I figured they will be a fun addition to my quilt.

    These are so adorable. I knew I shouldn't have looked. I have last years blocks on the wall for my daughter's christmas quilt and I have some spaces that need filled. But I have not time to make blocks to swap I don't think. Then i would have to put this on the back burner again and is one of my UFOs to get done. Geez, will have to see what can do, not committing yet, I have a few days yet. I want some of those.

    Not committing sounds like almost committing to me...you NEED some of these cuties! I know you do. Get that embroidery machine out and whip a set or 2 up tonight...I'll do the same. Let's go, go, go!

    That embroidery machine is busy making ornaments for the craft show coming up in two weeks. I have grandma's sewing machine getting my UFOs done, the longarm has a quilt on it getting done and the coffee pot just does not seem to go off. Then I want to do another one? You sew some tops for me and I can get them done.

    I have been enjoying reading this thread and seeing all your lovely work. Might I play also? I'm very new to the board, but have some great Christmas prints and would love to join with you. I've sent a PM to rwquilts saying I can make 5 sets.

    My blocks will be rather simple pieced ones but I think the fabrics blend well and will be pleasing to the eye.

    What do I win? Do I win one of those santa suit blocks? Or maybe the snowmen ones, or etc...... they are all so wonderful. I am stitching up some right now. I have some real pretty redwork designs that I may be able to use. They will go pretty withBelfrybat's simple pieced blocks. I would like that. I think I can get at least three sets done and they new blocks I will mix with my old blocks and then I can get that quilt done for my daughter before she has a tissy when we open up the Christmas quilts in storage. I have such a kick when we do get out the Christmas quilts from storage, they all argue who is going to get what and every year they say when I move out, I get this one no this one, we are short some mom. So I have to get busy.

    I will get there, I have one set done and I have a wall hanging about done. Started second set. It is called Tranquility. Wondering if I know what that means for sure but it is pretty. Good thing I kept my grandmas old singer so I can work and embroidery at same time.

    I have been remiss at welcoming our newer swappers! A warm welcome to Bbemerald, Pink Lady, Tealfalcon and Vinae officially! If I have missed anyone please forgive me and give me a shout out? We have already seen some of their adorable blocks being posted. If my count is correct, we are now at 33 participants...two people have dropped out...TheMamaHauser & MizMelly. I'm supposing that my mailbox is going to start getting busy, busy now!
