    Far be it from me if this is what you want to share with the group quiltermomma. I come from a different point of view, but, hey, to each his own.

THEN I GOT A SWIVEL CUTTING MAT THAT WILL BE SO HELPFUL IN CUTTING, A PERRY T SHIRT WITH A COLLECTOR PHINEAS AND FERB PIN. I EVEN GOT FIVE FAT QUARETERS THEN FRENCH RULERS FOR MY QUILT DESIGNING AND LOTS OF LOTHION TO SOFTEN MY HANDS FROM THE QUILTING. I AM SO BLESSED. THEN THE HUBBY GOT ME AN IPHONE SO I CAN KYPE WITH CHILDREN AS WELL. OH SO BLESSED I AM.

    Whew, Quilter Momma, you definitely got me beat. I'm so very glad your family treated you as top momma for the day. It sounds wonderful.

    I hope your hand/arm is doing well. Can't wait to see what blocks you come up with.

    Sandy, A BBQ sounds awesome as well. You earned a well deserved break and quality time with the family.
    I love all your blocks so far. I'm particularly fond of the kitty cat on the vanity. (Shades of my daughter sitting at hers when she was younger.)

    To all you moms of the 2-legged variety or 4-legged variety....Happy Mother's Day!

    I haven't started my blocks yet...But, I know exactly which ones I'm going to make. I really had to think about what blocks to add to the mix that would feel right. It definitely got easier when I started to think of what my favorites were. Then of course I had to rein in the ideas. lol I look forward to seeing sneaky peaks of everyones blocks. I hope to have a set done by the end of the week.

    Sandy, I will definitely have my blocks to you early. My daughters baby is due in early October. My first grandbaby. It's a boy. I definitely want to be with her.

    quiltermomma.... wow! You cleaned up! I got mixed live flowering plants for all of my big accent pots and hangers. Eight of them. But, that is what I wanted. I don't need anything really.

    Thanks Ms Grace... I will sure make a point of trying to sort one to you.

    I am a quilting diva for rulers and tools. Since I do custom quilting and longarm, the design rulers are going to be such a help. On the doll quilt swap, they may end up with some whole cloth quilts while I get it perfected for designing. And of course, will help with the trimming of swap blocks. The mat is 6.5" so perfect for that kind of work. Have to wait a little longer, hand not ready for holding ruler, can't hold firm enough yet. I was just so excited ladies that I wanted to share. You may see a couple pieces of that fabric in your blocks on this swap. Well, back to work

    Me too quiltermomma! I love tools and rulers and patterns. But, my family wouldn't have a clue what to get me, so they sometimes buy me a gift certificate to my favorite quilt store or the Hancock fabric store. That is so fun to go in and blow a hundred bucks on quilting things. LOL!
