    Spying in here seeing what everyone is making. I guess I will have to wait for a jan/feb swap of maybe some cool valentine stuff not whacky.. I have blocks to finish first for another swap and one at a time one at a time. Marybet they have coupons for hobby lobby online. I shop there but online only. No stores near here. Like a Michaels all in all more crafty stuff.. but good online printable coupons.

    I love the blocks your creating everyone it seems like it will make some cute Christmas items,, all hangings, table runners? table mats? oh oh so many choices such wonderful blocks to work with. I hope everyone posts an after pic of their finished blocks wall hangings.. let everyone else drool. I will, promise.

    I'll most likely sign up as soon as I clear a few things off my plate.

    Thanks you guys! They are taking a bit of time. I was going to put carrot noses on, but decided whomever gets them can do what they want for noses or no noses.

    That is just too weird... I write and then my typing just disappears right off my screen. I have never seen that before! must be in the twilight zone again I better go to bed.

    No running tomorrow but I have to do the toning and I don't like that part! lifting weights is not my thing. But Coach says it will help me in the long run! 34 Days left to get it right! It won't be long now.

    I did forget what I was going to type... I guess I need to go to bed for real! What to do now that the blocks are in, I have to just come in and encourage everyone else!

    I love them, they are adorable! where did you get the pattern, my GD might need another quilt! One special for when it snows and she gets cold just looking at it! LOL... my daughter would have my head if I make her one more quilt before she turns 5, that was the word!

    I have had my embroidery machine on most of the day, so I can kick back and compute while it is doing all the hard work, I just have to stop and change color.

    I told my husband he needs to sign up on the boards so I can make more holiday blocks! He said no way, if he didn't do it to get the candy with the SP exchange he would not do it so I could just make more Santa's & stuff!

    Ronda, those snowmen are too cute! I'm hoping to get one but if not I'm gonna "borrow" the idea and try to copy it! I started on another set of 12" square blocks. I decided to use the asterisk quilt block pattern with holiday fabric. Kinda looks like a big snowflake. I'll post a pic tomorrow.
    Marybeth, you are too funny!

    My photography stinks, but here's a sneak peek of my blocks. The first block with the tree and the last block with the poinsettia/angel didn't show up well ... they're "richer" in person ... but hopefully you get the idea.

    Moonrise those are stunning!! I have GOT to get my embroidery machine going, just waiting on all the thread I ordered. You ladies are my inspiration, I've put using it off forever and now I can't stand it, gotta' learn how to do this. Well the machine knows how, it's the input you know...the part of what you program in is what comes out, yup, that's the part I'm not to sure about.

    You can do it jaba! You really can. The first one is the hardest than there will be no stopping you. I speak from experience and give my support. I would not be doing any embroidery if a friend here on the QB had not done the same for me. ( heart to Fraew )

    Hey Moonrise... I hope this is not out of the box. But, that block with Ice Skates, how much would you charge me to make one? So many swappers and only one Ice Skates block... It reminded me immediately of my mom, she loved to ice skate, and she was the only girl in the family, on her birthday after she was married and expecting her first child, her uncle asked her what she wanted, she said "Ice Skates" and he got them for her. I still have them. I am going to put new ribbon in them and put them by my fireplace this Christmas. I would love to have one of those blocks to put in my Christmas quilt I am making. Would you consider allowing me to purchase one? Help a girl carry on a precious memory of her mother.

    Moonrise, your blocks are beautiful! Forget my PM asking if you can pics of your blocks. LOL! I read your PM before coming into the thread this morning. You're waaay ahead of me! I have to admit you gals doing your machine embroidery work are surely adding to our swap! I love getting a nice variety of blocks as it makes a quilt more interesting!

    A warm welcome to Moonrise and Girlscouts1! We're climbing and up to 23 participants!

    Thanks for the encouragement SheriR, I'm going to need all the help I can get have a feeling. MaryBeth has also been great, giving me all kinds of hints and sites to get more patterns. Just got a notice saying the thread order should be here on Monday. Wish it would come early so I have all weekend, don't know why, it's not as if I go to work 8 - 5 on Monday, I'll probably still be in my nightgown at 10 am . I'm really praying it's just going to pop right in my head and be smooth sailing, like the light bulb came on, right kind of unrealistic huh? Time will tell.

    Forgot to say welcome to moonrise and girlscouts, yup yup we need more blocks going around. Now if I could convince rwquilts to just send me the embroidery ones then I'd have some examples to go by. Might have to work on that, she'd help a poor girl out don't ya' think????

    Jaba, I am new to machine embroidery too! I bought my fancy machine as a graduation present to myself in 2004...just opened the embroidery box in July! No pressure from SheriR though. He he. My first one was pretty ambitious with 20 color changes. Stitched nicely but puckered. I showed it to SheriR, she helped me fix the puckering and off I ran! Talk about a whole new world and my machine uses floppy disks so talk about a fast learning curve. It's super easy, lots of fun and I have had a great response from board members. Thanks to all of you for your support and Jaba, you know that we are here to support you too!

    BTW - my 2nd embroidered block is in my albums "finished"...Santa's getting ready".

    Now get out there and stitch up some stuff! Hugs
