I was just checking out the March pattern for the DB quilt along. I think I'm going to see about using my black base candies for this. Will have to see if I've got enough. I don't think I'm going to modify this pattern , but we'll see what happens when I get going on it.

Didn't end up cutting any candies this weekend. I've been working on the RR quilt top and it got away from me. You know when you get an idea and it seems like it's going to be easy? but then it keeps getting more complicated and you spend more and more time? I've got two of the sides done and the "parts" for the other two ready to assemble. Should be able to get it finished this afternoon and then I'm going to clean off the cutting table and cut candies before starting into the next project.

I sent out Cathy's candies this morning. I found the envelope on my desk... glad I found it early. I have never been late and do not want to start now.

Thank you, everyone, for the well wishes and congratulations for baby Madailein!

My first envelope arrived on Thursday, February 25th, from Sewbizgirl. Thank you, Bonnie! I'm sorry I didn't thank you sooner; that was the day that Madailein was born and everything has been a blur since. I'll open all the candies on my birthday.

Madailein and I are doing very well. She has her days and nights completely mixed up, but otherwise she is an easy baby. Every day I feel like I fall deeper in love with her!

Oh my! Absolutely beautiful family! Congratulations again, NZ and family. You look wonderful!

Your birthday candies are officially on their way. Let's see what the post office does with them now. If they get there in a week, I will be thrilled.

Here's a funny story about the candies. When I first got on the board (eons ago) and folks were talking about 2.5" candy squares, I thought there were a lot of candy themed fabrics out there that I was unaware of. I started my M&M fabric collection about that time thinking that eventually I would have enough candies to participate. Everyone gets one true, "candy" square from me in honor of my long lost innocence.

Sewbizgirl, you better not send me a baby with my squares from you!

March – Contest Time "Getting to Know You, Getting to Know All About You!"

I will send a “quilty” prize to someone who answers my nosy questions. Post your responses in the swap thread so everybody can get to know you too.

1. If we were walking down a street, how would I/we identify you?
2. How did you come by your screen name?
3. What was the source of your “real” name?
4. What was your first quilt? Pictures if you have one.
5. What is or was your oldest UFO?
6. What is the source of the song, “Getting to Know You, Getting to Know All About You?”

I’ll put the names of all that post responses to my Getting to Know You questions in a hat, jar or basket and have a grandchild pick one out. Post by Monday, March 8 at midnight. Name will be chosen on Tuesday, March 9. A quilty prize will go in the mail on Wednesday, March 10th. Keep humming that song.

Cathy, what a beautiful photo! Baby Madeilein is a gorgeous girl. And she will have so much love and all those big sisters doting on her. God bless her!

I know I sent my card/candies way early, but if I don't mail when I get the notice I may forget!

Contest answers:
1. If we were walking down a street, how would I/we identify you?
I have shining bright white hair!
2. How did you come by your screen name?
Because of my Etsy shop and sewing for sale, I called myself SewBizGirl.
3. What was the source of your “real” name?
My mother was very moved by the movie, Gone With the Wind. She named me Bonnie Ellen, after Rhett and Scarlett's daughter Bonnie Blue, and Scarlet's mother, Miss Ellen. (Cant help but roll my eyes at this.)
4. What was your first quilt? I think my first quilt was a panel of a bunny that I made for my new baby daughter. Pictures if you have one. No pictures, sorry.
5. What is or was your oldest UFO? I had a wall quilt started, spools in bright Amish colors on a black background. I was hand quilting it, but the fabric and batting were so heavy that it was really a chore to quilt! I schlepped that thing around forever, thinking one day I'd finish it. It is such a relief to have finally gotten rid of it (donated).
6. What is the source of the song, “Getting to Know You, Getting to Know All About You?” In The King and I movie, Mrs. Anna sang it to her new Siamese students. My mother loved that movie, so I grew up watching it.

Can't wait to read everyone's answers to 'get to know you' all better!
