Can I ask if you received my piece to finish?  I have not heard anything yet and it should have gotten there by now.

Received my finished Wallhanging

Thank you Helen and the other Cotton Robineers for creating such a Patriotic Wall hanging for me.

Dear Nan

I received a gorgeous block on Tuesday. When I saw the package still next to my chair (thank heaven!) I realized I'd done nothing except tear it open. You'd have thought it was my final quilt the way I opened it.
Any way, it's here and I am finished with school (forever!) on Thursday, so it looks like I'll have a fun project for my first day of retirement on Friday. I am very excited to begin work on this one.

Apologies to Helen

Helen, sorry, I think my brain's gone all middle aged and forgetful - I did send the quilt with two borders on to you to be finished off on the 19th of April (I've actually written the date on the instructions sheet - wasn't that organised of me?) - I have this clear (I thought) memory of posting a note here on the blog to say it was on the way and so forth, but apparently I either only wrote that note in my mind or I forgot to save it on the blog as it seems to never have appeared, and it wasn't until Julie chased me up to see if I'd sent my piece that I realised I hadn't said anything. I do hope it will arrive soon - seems to me it surely should have done so by now!

Quilt with row 2 received!!

Weeks ago actually!  From Peggy
Excited to get started....

Oh, and...

I also received, several weeks ago, the finished block for me to quilt from TracyAnn C. It's a beautiful top. I'm looking forward to quilting it.

On Its Way!

I just sent off my finished block to Sophie W. It should be there soon!

Mailed and Received

I got the top off to Donna.  I hit the post office between the vet and the lawyers office.  Yep, filing a suit against a contractor.

When I got home, my top was in the mailbox from Julie.  Wow, what a dramatic round!  And I had to look up a word....that ought to confuse everyone, huh!

And would you believe, I don't have a single piece of *the main color* in my flood depleted stash?  Figures that I would get that one, right?

And the quilt shop closed after the online shopping it is!  Which is very, very, very dangerous......


Whew Made It! 2!!!!

Got the second row on and it's hitting the mail today to Peggy, SC.

I LOVE it!!!!

Hey girl, when  you finish it, just send it on back to me!

Received top...

...and it is really cute.  In my humble opinion, I think there were some great design choices!  Now to quilt!!


Received my finished top to quilt, yesterday (or might have been Thursday - it's been a busy week, I'm not sure I remember accurately). Looks amazing. I really am not sure I will want to send this one back to its owner when it's quilted, lol. Now to think how to best show it off!

My second round is finished and on it's way to Terry. Should get there by Monday!  Now to play with the quilting on my final round!!!

Another deadline approaching...

Okay, Robineers -- please note that the deadline for mailing your top-with-2-borders is May 8!  (Mine is going to the post office today or tomorrow).

If you already know you're going to be late, please let me know now, so that I can alert the next person in line.



I received my top+2.

It's so lovely and fun!  Will begin quilting soon!

Late, but I have a good excuse

I may be a bit late.  We had that baby early!  8 lbs 9 oz, big big big boy, he was.  I got to stay in the delivery room! 

Didn't think being a grandma would be so hectic!

Quilt on its way to Kate

I put the quilt top in the post yesterday. I had actually finished it a while ago but could not manage to get to the post office until now. It has a long journey ahead of it from NZ to the UK but it shouldn't take too long. All of that distance, but only a couple of hops on a plane between us.
