    Sounds like a plan. Daughter helping me organize my fabric again so I can see what I have to work with. Nice to have a helper while the glue is drying on my arm. So, to find a cow. If I can make the time, I thought would be fun to do a combine or tractor embroidery and frame it with vegetable fabric. I think i still have some. Oh, what about a fruit farm? We can use apple, cherrie, strawberry, or potaatoes, carrots, lettuce fabrics. I think I have some. I can get some if need to. My family was big on potatoes. Love my dads taters, one would make a meal and we would make homemade french fries. Yep, lunch time is here and I have no lunch today. Hmmmmm and alone in office. get that.

    No it has not and it is just laying there tapping its fingers. Then I had to use the rice I had in the rice bag I am finally finishing to make for lunch. Yes, it was fresh out of the bag so had not been "used". Was not bad, at least low on calories. Good thing I picked up something at the store today, boss gone again and so would not had any lunch. Whew. Well, I will wait by the mail box to see if the glue and tape get here, did I even give you my address to mail it?

    Looking for an applique cow pattern right now for that fun fabric I found so I can get ready when I have time to make blocks seeing how my arm is still healing. Duct tape and glue are here but taking time to heal.

    Well if you must know I have been busy working on a quilt for a one armed lady..lol. Now I have a certification test on June 30th and I could certainly use your prayers for that and then I will do blocks for these great swaps.

    Oh, you know that quilt you have been working on for that one armed lady who has duct tape and glue Ms. Grace mailed from down south, she has received it and it sits in her family room across the sofa to grab if needed since it is still cold up here north and there should be one arriving to you no later than Friday that is so cool, you will want to drop that certification studying to type on the quilt board again. Of course I will pray the word of God over yout o bring all that you study to mind when you are taking your certification test.

    nice selection.
    Is your arm heeling any better? I saw some Gorilla glue today at Wal-Mart. It's suppose to be super strong.
    Want me to send you some?

    I'm working on my first set now. I'm doing a barn. Every farm needs a barn....right?
    I'll post a picture when I'm done.
    Let's start sharing pictures of our blocks. Maybe it will get others to join us.
    I'm going to make a wall hanging for my kitchen with the blocks that I trade for.

    Hey Scrapper, that pig looks like a perfect pattern.

    Now that I looked for ideas, I have nine I want to do and that does not include my embroidery machine designs. Hmmmm, guess I have to pick, oh darn. I could make one of everything of my ideas and then whichever I like making more of, will make those. Yeah, that is what I will do.

    I know what you mean. I have so many ideas of blocks that I want to make. It took me a while to decide which one to try first.

    I think there should be a rule..."no more cute block swaps"! I just stumbled across this swap...you guys are baaaaadddd!!! I loved the Farm block swap Mariposa hosted last year...made some cute piggies and sheepies and I don't remember what else. I'm canning fruit for another swap...I might could can some more fruit for this one. I will keep an eye on you girls and see how my summer goes.

    Hey Ronda!

    Fancy finding you here. . Maybe we need to set up a group so that those of us that travel as a pack can make sure that we all gt to the next swap(s). Or maybe designate a swap watch dog to alert us.
    None of us have the ability to turn down a cute swap do we?

    No we just can't turn them down, after all we keep pushing each other off the fence, breaking arms from twisting, then send ambulances to take care of each other by using glue and duct tape, we are stuck together.
