nearly there...

Here's an update:

There is one quilt not yet mailed -- hoping that will happen tomorrow!

I need to hear from Marie and Suzette as to whether you've received the quilt that was mailed to you (sorry if you told me and I missed it...)

Laurina's quilt has been mailed (and delivered) to her mother's house in the U.S., and she'll arrive on the 20th.  If everything else is in order I might do the Big Reveal before that, but maybe I'll wait.

Stay cool,

Another Quilt is Home

I picked up my little quilt today ... thanks to Marie, Julie and Nan for this little wonder.

- Posted using BlogPress from my iPad


...and it's here. I agree, Glen, it's stunning. Thanks so much to those who worked on my quilt (whose names are in the other room) - you all did an amazing job.  And of course thanks to Julie for organising us again...

My Mini Is Home!

I received my little quilt in the mail!!!  Yay!!!  I love how it turned out!  I  am always amazed at how everything turns out!!!  Everyone does something I never would have thought of and it suits the quilt so well!!!!  Thank you everyone!!!!!

Opened My Little Quilt Package

So I couldn't handle the suspense anymore.  I had to open the package that has been sitting here.

I am always amazed at the talent in the hands it passes through.

Incredible.  Once again, incredible.

Thanks to all who made this wonderful piece!

I can't wait for the Big Reveal.

Can't wait.



I've received my quiltie today! And it's a cutie! Thanks to whomever worked on it.

Late ... But On It's Way to Cathy

It has been a real comedy of errors around my house, made worse by a huge dose of life stress ... but Cathy's little quilt is on it's way to Iowa.

One of the things-gone-wrong was when I broke a sewing machine needle last night and couldn't find a package of needles anywhere. Earlier in the day I was supposed to find out if I was going to be offered a job ... instead I heard that one of the interviews (of another candidate) was moved to next week, so I won't hear anything until then.  I really need/want this job and the stress of waiting all week to be told to wait another week got to me a lot.  So much so, that when I broke the needle it didn't occur to me until much later (this morning), that I could have used one of my OTHER sewing machines (or at least taken the needle out of one of them ... doh!

It was a bit of a mad rush to finish before the Post Office closed ... but I made it and it's on it's way.  Sorry for the delay.
