    Sounds like you all are having fun. Going to be some great blocks! I do hope all will post pics, as I am not joining this month! My sister is still waiting to do the double mastectomy-she has to have her female organs all checked first, as they think their is a problem there. And yesterday, I did biopsy and will know tomorrow. It has been an emotional roller coaster ride the last few months for us for sure! But I love to see the blocks. Dan, have you done anymore of the twister quilting? That looks so cool, hope to do one myself soon if able! And Sandra, can't wait to see the canning jar quilt finished!
    Enjoy! Melinda

    Four fantastic shell-looking coasters arrived in the mail today. THANK YOU BEV! The batteries in my camera need to be replaced, so I'll have to describe them to you all. The tops are made of fabric with lots of shells in it, and the bottoms are sky blue with poofy clouds mixed in. They are all shaped like shells, and Bev quilted the shell lines into them. They are just too cool, and yes Bev, perfect! Now, how did you ever know I'm a beach addict? LOL! Either tomorrow or Saturday I'm going to have to go to the grocery store and pick up the ingredients so I can mix up some pineapple sunrises and use them! Thanks Again Bev!!!

    home again, and exhausted. who knew that waiting 5 hours in a hospital waiting room could be so tiring? and those chairs are NOT made for comfort! while I was waiting for my roomie to get through his tests, I got a phone call from my mechanic, letting me know that the transmission in my car is indeed shot, and the bill will be just under $2000. thankfully, I've been able to save up that much, fearing the worst. I will have my car back either Tuesday or Wednesday. okay, enough of my griping tirade. I'll post again tomorrow in a better mood. I did want to say though that Michelle's 8 blocks arrived today, and they are simply beautiful. It was like receiving a bouquet in the mail... thank you Michelle! Michelle appliqued flowers onto her blocks, and they've inspired me to try my hand at it sometime during this extended vacation. as santa would say... peace to all, and to all a good night.

    Goodevening All, Just brought myself up to date on the postings. Dan, have you had a hard or is your sugar acting up again? I have also recieved all my FG's. It's been a great trade. Faye, I recieved my FG's today. Thank You so much. They are already in my room and put into the box for the next project. So...I can't discribe what they look like, but they are cool. THANKS again. Bev, Have you decided on the water bottle tote? The machine that cuts Applique pieces is called AccuQuilt Fabric-Cutting Machine. When I was a Libraian we had a like machine for cutting paper For projects. I have never used one for material. Thanks to all for making this a great trading stop. It's the only one that I do other than seeds in the fall. Nite All! gmom

    Q

    Bev asked me: 1. How old was I when I learned to sew? I think I was about 13..ummm..which would have been quite a bit ago..LOL 2. Who taught me to sew? Well, I learned in HOme Ec and then didn't sew for years. I started back up in my 20's and then sewed off and on for years. 3. What do I have on my "bucket list" that I would still like to do? I would love to visit Ireland and that is my ultimate dream!! My great grandmother came from County Cork. Questions from Sharon: !. Why am I in this swap? Is it everything I hoped for? Well, I'm in this swap because Dan threatened me with pins and needles! Actually I really enjoy these swaps and look forward to them each month. I always enjoy seeing what other people send me. 2.Have you ever taught anyone to quilt? Who and why? The only person I have taught to quilt is myself. I wanted to learn because I have a quilt top that is almost completed by my grandmother and great aunt. Both are gone now and I would love to finish and display it. 3. What is the best quilt I ever made? what did you do with it? So far I only finished one quilt. It was a lap quilt that I made for our family reunion this year and my mother won it! From Dan: Is there a block pattern I'd like to try but haven't yet? I would love to try the Dresden pattern but I don't feel confident enough yet. 2. What sewing magazines do you subscribe to? I've just subscribed to two but I can't remember their names.LOL!! 3. What is your favorite quilt block pattern? Well I like this tulip one I just worked on. I think each one I do is my favorite till I try another one.

    Sorry I've been silent - just busy cleaning up after the flood! We live 1/2 block from a large creek that just spilled over its' banks Mon pm - made the national news for 3 days so I've heard. (Who has time to watch TV??)
    Anyway, garage got hit, house is fine. Still have a mini Lake Erie in my backyard - after 4 days now I'm sorta of sick of looking at it (only 'cuz I can't afford to buy a boat! LOL) Wondering what effects flood waters have on the gardens - never lived here during a flood before, Thank God! Seems many of our neighbors have a whole system in place. Really don't want to get to that point, but apparently we'll have to! :(

    So, nottougly, I need your addy,please! Dan & quiltingfox I already have yours. Going to sew tomorrow after Dr appt - weather forecasting 2-3" of rain Fri & Sat. Whoopee!!

    What a week it's been!
    One of my nephews is in the hospital with a lung that's collapses twice since Thursday, so he's going in for surgery to repair the hole this coming Thursday.
    Earlier this week I had a huge fight with my best friend, but thankfully we got past it and all is well now.
    Last night the main waterline for my area broke down, so the water was shut off for about 10 hours. When it came back on the pressure was too much for one of the lines going to my shower, so that had to be fixed this morning after I demolished the cupboard space it was behind. This might turn into a nice remodelling of the bathroom cupboards, but I wasn't planning on doing any remodelling, that's for sure!
    And of course, the snow keeps coming and coming and coming and coming.
    Sometimes I wish I could push the "pause" button just long enough to catch my breath and get back some of my sanity. Don't you???

  • 13 years ago

    Dan were do you find this pause button? I so need one! LOL
    Hope everyone has a better week.

  • 13 years ago

    I'll drink to that! Here's to a new, better week for us all!

  • 13 years ago

    Must just be a bad week! My daughter and her boyfriend had a huge fight and she and the baby have been here for a couple of days. They're going back to her apartment today and hopefully things got worked out.

    I AM going out to lunch today with a dear friend...as long as it doesn't keep snowing and make driving impossible...where is Spring??????

    I have everyone's addy that I need and have my material ready to go!

  • 13 years ago

    Wow! I was taught that when life gets hard, just look around...there are plenty of other people going thro worse things. You all are having a rough time, huh??! I thought the flood was bad - altho it didn't get as bad as it could have - but dirty water is easier to deal with (lots! easier) than health & relationship issues. I'll add you all to my prayer list!
    On an UP note (we all need one:) the rains that were predicted this second round weren't nearly as heavy as they thought. So no flooding this round. (Go figure, 3 dozen sandbags & we don't need them!!...yet!) Since spring isn't here yet, we'll keep them around for future use - then add them to the gardens. I figure they'll amend the clay-ish soil very nicely & help w/future drainage. Trying to find the good in this whole mess!
    My blocks are finished & getting ready for mailing tomorrow. This was a fun swap, Dan :) Thanks! for hosting. It has helped lift my spirits & keep me from looking out the windows every 5 minutes!!

    Raising a glass to a great week for ALL!! Starting NOW!!!!!

    ~Cindy

  • 13 years ago

    Melinda I will keep you and your sister in my prayers.

    I have my block pieces cut out, will pull out the machine and sew them later this week. Cutting out a few extra blocks to put toward Grandma's quilt. :-) Hope everyone enjoys the rest of their weekend! :-)

    Best to you,
    Sandra

  • 13 years ago

    My blocks are in the mail :)

  • 13 years ago

    Mailing my blocks tomorrow. :-)

  • 13 years ago

    It feels like forever since I last checked in, how is everyone doing? We've had a few nice days (over 30F) hereabouts, so that's made things a lot better! I was going to sit down and get my blocks ready to be mailed out in the morning, but they've disappeared. I'm just glad the were 9-patch blocks! It'll be easy to whip up another batch once I'm offline. And of course, they'll show up soon, probably tomorrow evening, but that's okay. They can be easily put to use in some project down the road, right?
    Hopefully everyone should be getting their blocks mailed out by Monday evening, and then we can all sit back and enjoy watching everyone receive their new quilt blocks.
    If anyone has NOT heard from their partners regarding addresses, PLEASE LET ME KNOW, okay? Thanks, and have a great weekend!

    Wow! Woke up this morning to a white wintery wonderland! Too bad it was real -- I had hoped to be able to turn the page & find it was really 65 & sunny!! And to top it off we lose an hour of sleep tomorrow night!! AAGHHGHHH!! Losing sleep is NOT on my 'to-do' list! I can do that enough on my own ---- don't need to schedule it! LOL
    Working this weekend on a RR quilt. It was gorgeous when I got it, so the bar has been set pretty high! If I can keep at it for a few hours without interruptions I should be mostly finished by Sun eve. 'Course I could get more done if I wasn't losing an hour of sleep...(grumble,grumble...)

    Hope everyone had a better week this week than last!! And be grateful we don't live in Japan! Praying for all there.

    Counting my blessings,
    ~Cindy

    My packages went out yesterday. Don't laugh when you get the big envelopes. I'm not myself right now and I had it in my head a 12x12 quilt block needs a big envelope. So I already had them address before I went to put the fabric in and noticed...duh...they can be folded and would fit in a nice small envelope. Well by then, it was late at night and I just wanted to get them in the mail. So have your laugh at my expense and then hopefully enjoy the quilt block:)

    From a natural blonde...you could tell right?
    Bev

  • 13 years ago

    After consulting with the Wise and Great Bump, I found my blocks last night! YAYYY!!! And now they are happily in the air, flying to their new homes!

    Let's see who's posted what, shall we?
    dan_the_mailman sends to lindaruzicka, gmom, bev2009 SENT
    quiltingfox sends to quiltpartner, nottougly, gmom SENT
    bev2009 sends to quiltpartner, lindaruzicka, chrizty SENT
    quiltpartner sends to Dan, nottougly, quiltingfox SENT

    lindaruzicka sends to Dan, chrizty, quiltingfox
    chrizty sends to nottougly, bev2009, quiltingfox
    gmom sends to Dan, lindaruzicka, quiltpartner

    Okay, so it looks like we're about halfway there. I'll give it until Monday evening for the other 4 to post, and after that I'll send out reminders to any and all who haven't sent out their blocks yet.

    Bev, thanks for the chuckles! I'm not laughing at you though, just at the memories of doing the same thing! When I first started GW I would send bubbled envelopes to people INSIDE bubbled envelopes! Can you believe it? Since then, I've learned to send a bubbly containing address labels instead. I'm sure I caused some head-shaking with that! In fact, I seem to remember a certain resident busybody posting about her amusement within my rate & review thread...hmmm. All I can say is it's better to spread smiles than frowns, and even though smiles are contagious, at least you don't have to use any penicillin as a result of catching one! (some parties here on the ol' GW DO get out of hand, don't they???)

    Happy Weekend to Everyone!

    my blocks are ready to go out in tomorrow's mail.."S"

  • 13 years ago

    All 3 of my blocks are in tomorrows mail.
    Faye!

  • 13 years ago

    Dan, LOVE your rants! :):) You ALWAYS make me smile:) & I say 'rant' in a good way! :)

    Sandra, got your lovely block & seeds in the mail Sat. DH found it Sun when we came home from church - evidently DGS missed it when he 'helped' by bringing in the mail! :) THANK YOU!! Adding it to my Feb garden blocks for a garden quilt to remind me of all my GW friends.

    Hope everyone is recovered from that killer weekend we had (hate the spring end of DST)! Sun is shining here!! WooHoo!!

    ~Cindy

  • 13 years ago

    Chiropractor popped my joints back into place today - yeah! It was a little gloomy while in town and on the way home, as it is a rainy day. But when I checked the mail today, it so brightened my day - I got a block and seeds from Cindy! Thank you bunches Cindy! She sent cosmos and echinacea. The block had 4 smaller blocks made of 9 squares each so as she put it, it is a real nines in nine. I did not know you could sew that small of blocks on the sewing machine, so I have learned something new. The fabric is beautiful floral print in brilliant spring colors. It is a really beautiful block that is going to look great on the quilt I am making for my grandma! :-)

    Well off to sew some 9-patch blocks for grandma's quilt and wash some fabric for my cousin's baby quilt. Hope everyone has a great week!

    Best to you and many thanks,
    Sandra

  • 13 years ago

    Cindy, if you like my rants, then you should check out the link below. Back when I was just a newbie here on the ol' GW I started a thread called Confessions of a Serial Gardener. The basic format for it was that there really wasn't a format, I'd just sign on and write about whatever was flittering and fluttering within my skull. I was a lot of fun to do, and I met some great people by doing it. When you spoke of me ranting, I thought of it immediately, and yes, after 4 years, it's still there.
    How time flies by, eh Linda?

    Here is a link that might be useful: Confessions of a Serial Gardener

  • 13 years ago

    I received Dan's and Bev's blocks in the mail. What a nice treat instead of the usual stuff!

    Anyways, Bev's block was a 9 square of assorted flowers. The block in the middle was of hearts in memory of her grandmother. It will have a special place on my quilt.."S". She also sent pink columbine, yellow cosmos, and lilliput zinna seeds!

    Dan's block was burgandy solid for 4 of them with a wildflower square for four and then an oat grass for the middle square. Very pretty.. He sent yellow Hibicus and broom corn seeds as well!

    Thank you both so much. They will be wonderful additions to my "Garden Friends" quilt. ((HUG))

  • 13 years ago

    Hi Everyone,
    I posted on Sunday But I don't See it. Don't know what I did but it is not here.
    I've been outside burning Mother Natures cast offs. Dead and dying trees. Some have been down since the last logging day in the 80's. We've been here for 10 years and my piles never seem to be gone. We keep cleaning our 2 lots but never done.
    What a beautiful day it is. I ate lunch outside and pulled up my sleeves and pantlegs for some vit.D! It was 42 Degrees.
    I'm still in this swap only slow. I recieved blocks from Dan and Sandra. What a nice selection of colors. Also got seed from them. Thank You. Mine will be in the mail as soon as we go to town this week. Whatever day that might be.
    I'm hoping for lots more of this type of beautiful day.
    Happy gardening!!
    gmom

  • 13 years ago

    Linda, I'm glad you like the block. Since this is my first time, I'm not sure what the "usual" is? It was my mother who passed away. Did I say Grandma in the letter? Well, that was what we usually called her since two of my kids live with us as well, so I might have used that name. Since she passed away on Valentine's Day, hearts are going to be my thing going forward. I made a bog garden last year and it is sort of in the shape of a heart, so this year I am going to accentuate the heart with stones. It is right outside my dining room window and in the middle of the butterfly garden, so we will see it everyday. I sure miss her! This has made me so much more sensitive to friends who have parents who are aged.

  • 13 years ago

    OMG! Dan! :) Too Funny!! Thanks for the link --- been reading for quite awhile & you're still ranting! So time for a little snack then on to bed. I flagged the link so I can go back to it tomorrow for another 'Dose of Dan' !! LOL I kinda like that term too - dose of dan -- just what I need when I'm tired & some reflective quips will pick me up! (No, you can't pick me up...but what you write sure does! LOLSM!!)
    Aren't we glad the GW saves posts??!?

    nighty night!!
    ~Cindy

  • 13 years ago

    Bev, I do apologize, it does say mother. I like the idea of the hearts being a connection to her, with my father it's pansies. Your block was perfect and exactly what we do.."S"

  • 13 years ago

    Linda,
    I love pansies. Can I ask what the connection is with your dad? And what does the "S" stand for?

    Bev

  • 13 years ago

    "S"..stand for "smile" and pansies were my Dad's favorite flower. I make sure i have some planted each year when I do my gardens..."S"

  • 13 years ago

    Linda, I received your block today! The four blue middle blocks remind me of water for all of those dragonflies in the four corners! NICE! Thank you!
    Where did you find 4 different types of dragonfly fabric?
    It's funny that you mention your dad liking pansies. My dad has to have them in his flowerbeds every year! He also likes pink roses, which I think is pretty cool. He's definitely one of those "old school" types, a do-it-yourself-er, tough-as-nails, know what I mean? Now that I think of it though, he's probably where I get the "teddy bear" tendencies, lol!

  • 13 years ago

    Dan, I got the dragonflies on ebay at an auction. The lady has butterflies, dragonflies, bumblebees and all kinds of things. She sends one square of each she has so there aren't any duplicates. I'm glad you liked it!

    And yes, that's probably where you got those qualities!

  • 13 years ago

    I got a beautiful 9-patch block in the mail today from Linda. It will go great on my Grandma's quilt! :-) Dragonflies in the corners with a sun dial in the middle. It is just perfect for Grandma's quilt! Thank you bunches!! :-)

    Am working on my cousin's baby quilt. Lots of teddy bears with a chocolate brown backing and 1 inch border. Just started quilting the layers together last night, and that is what I am working on this afternoon. Having a lazy day hand quilting. :-)

    Best to you and many thanks,
    Sandra

  • 13 years ago

    I received a lovely block from Sharon today. You always amaze me how you take a pattern and do something cool with it. It's done in blues and golds and she also sent seeds!

    I posted the new Seed n Stitches for April if anyone would like to check it out! Jump right in and sign up!

    Everyone have a Wonderful Weekend! I get to do some carpentry indoors and outdoors (if the weather holds), and maybe plant some peas. AND, I've got two, count'em, two days off!!!

    Can I get an amen?

    HUGAS!

  • 13 years ago

    I received a great-looking 9-patch within a 9-patch quilt block from Sharon today! It's beautiful! Even my roomie, who is usually a bit ho-hum about anything to do with sewing had some great things to say about it. Now, that's what I call impressive!
    THANK YOU SHARON!!!

  • 13 years ago

    and what gets me is that Sharon was sick!!!!

  • 13 years ago

    Glad to see you back online Christy! :-) Got my beautiful block from Christy, will try to post a pic later. :-) Off to cut strips for my mom's canning jar lap quilt. It is already in the 80's here temp-wise. We are getting hot weather rather early this year.

    Best to you,
    Sandra

  • 13 years ago

    Okay, all the blocks are in the mail, and we've already seen some arriving. That's great! Keep posting when you receive your blocks please!
    -Dan

  • 13 years ago

    Sorry for not following up, Dan. I wanted to take a picture and post, but that hasn't happen yet. I took the picture the other day, down loaded to the computer today, so maybe tomorrow I'll get it posted! (But I did work 2 hours in the garden and worked on a quilt I started piecing about 30 years ago. A lot of the fabric is from clothes I made for myself in high school and others I sewed for. It is really special to me so I can't wait to get it finished.)

    I received from Dan and Faye. They are both lovely. I like the Monetish green fabric Dan and the cute roosters Faye.

    Thanks! Bev

  • 13 years ago

    Hi All,
    All the blocks should be arriving to their destination any day now. Hope they are well liked. Thanks Dan, any day.
    I have recieved all 3 of my blocks and have homes for them. Thanks to Dan, Sandra, and Faye. Also thanks for the seed.
    I enjoy this so much.
    What quilting magazines do you get or read. I go to the library and read any quilting magazine they have. I also put out the word that I needed magazines so when my friends are done with them they are given to me. I don't know which are my favorates.
    Have a great evening.
    Dan are you ready for our storm? I'm not. I was hoping winter was over, but I guess nobody told mother nature.

    gmom

  • 13 years ago

    Hopefully here are pictures of the three blocks I received. Yes, Christy, I got yours today and it is lovely, thanks.
    Dan's if the first, Christy's second and Faye's third.



  • 13 years ago

    Here are pics of the beautiful blocks I got for the March Swap:

    From Cindy:

    From Linda:
    {{gwi:1249495}}

    These blocks are gonna' look great on my grandma's quilt. Thank you bunches!! :-)

    Best to you and many thanks,
    Sandra

  • 13 years ago

    They look great!! Ill get pics soon as I get new battiers for the cam.
    I ment to add a note in mine that said I hope your grass gross green n your flowers florish lol I forgot.

  • 13 years ago

    Okay Gang, we're almost there. I just went through the posts to see who has received their blocks, and this is the list I've come up with of people who still need to receive their block(s). Please let me know if I've missed something, will you? I'm not exactly working at 100% here. Anyway, here's what I've got...
    Dan receives from quiltpartner/Cindy
    Faye/Nottougly receives from chrizty, quiltingfox, quiltpartner
    Quiltpartner receives from Sharon/gmom and Bev

    I'll be e-mailing Faye and Cindy here in a few moments to see how things are going with them. Have yourselves a good night and a great Sunday!
    -Dan

  • 13 years ago

    I mailed my block to Faye the week of March 7th so she should have it by now.

    Best to you,
    Sandra

  • 13 years ago

    I think all the blocks have been mailed by now Sandra, but we all need to remember to post that we've received them when they arrive, hopefully with either pictures or a description. That way we all know that they aren't wandering around somewhere within the mail, which does happen from time to time. Cindy's mailed mine out with the others, I'm sure, but it hasn't arrived yet. As soon as it gets here, I'll post about it, letting her know it's here. When I send out blocks I start looking for postings that they've arrived. Until I see those posts, I'm left wondering, know what I mean? This is probably something we all start thinking about, making sure those arrival posts are done in a timely manner, y'know?

  • 13 years ago

    Yes things do get lost in the mail from time to time. Guess I am just a little anxious and hoping my block made it to Faye's house. Am working on my April blocks today. Really enjoying the patterns Linda picked out for us. :-)

    Best to you,
    Sandra

  • 13 years ago

    Hello everyone,
    Yes I did receive all 3 of my blocks.
    They are all beautiful and I love them.
    I have been so busy with mom's final stuff I have not had time to post.
    I can not wait to get enough blocks to make a quilt and use mom's quilting frames.
    Thanks to everyone with your understanding.
    Thanks,
    Faye!

  • 13 years ago

    In her last post, Cindy said she'd received her 3 blocks. I missed it because it was at the end of her post and I didn't notice it. So, the only block missing is the one Cindy sent to me. Everyone else has received their blocks, so I'm going ahead and banging the gavel on this one. Thanks Everyone!

    Cindy/quiltpartner's block went astray in the mail (I've seen that happen plenty of times to mail). After waiting to see if it would eventually arrive, she re-mailed a package to me. I was only hoping for one quilt block, but instead, Cindy mailed out 2! And they are fantastic! Each is a 9-patch block, with smaller 9-patch blocks inside the pattern. One screams Spring, and the other suggests Autumn, so I will be pairing them together in the quilt I eventually make from the blocks received from my friends here in Seeds-n-Stitches.
    CINDY, THANK YOU!! And you don't have to wait for an excuse to come visit, you're not that far away now that better weather is arriving...lol!
