Got an idea and started on Kathy's center.  Just have to figure out the corners. I'll have it done before my surgery witn no problem.

Well, it's nice when everything falls into place. I finished Karen's first border and I'm very happy with it. Bethany, I am ready to ship it off whenever you say it's ok. No rush. I'm just thrilled it came to me so quickly.

Bethany Jane, I received your center today.  I must say you do incredibly beautiful work!  I am going to look at it for a while and wait until I get your journal so I will have an idea of your vision of the finished quilt.  I have already picked one PERFECT fabric for it.

Kathy, thanks for letting us know you received Bethany's center. That accounts for everyone in the whole RR having a center to work on except our newest member, Deb.

And I  just got the address to mail it to and will be doing so tomorrow (hopefully I can get there) or the following day. Hopefully I have followed the directions correctly and do not upset the apple cart! I am so looking forward to this new adventure of quilting. And maybe, just maybe I will finally keep one of my own.

Yahoo!  We are one lucky group. Hahaha. We will get 5 borders instead of 4. More room for creativity. 😉

Oh, this has been a wonderful day!!!  I got home from work and I had two packages in my mailbox. One from Kathy and one from Deb. LOL  I opened the one from Kathy first. Oh my, beautiful butterfly fabric unfolded in my hands. I have a collection of butterfly fabrics so I was thrilled!!! 😊 And to top it off she sent a Little Wallet sewing card. I'm one lucky gal today. It felt like this was my special day. Thanks Kathy!!!

Now for Deb's package, our newest member. I open the package and spread out a beautiful 1930s center done by hand. Ooooh!!!  Deb, you are in luck. I worked on a quilt last RR that was 1930s. I have never been into 1930s fabrics but I thought if I'm going to buy the fabric I might as well buy extra (don't we all). I was wondering what I was going to do with all that 30s fabric and now I know how to use some of it. See girls, stock piling fabric can be a good thing. LOL. Now where did I put all that fabric?  Hmmmm. 😳

I have plenty to keep me busy this weekend. Top of the list is to compile the results of the survey and post on Sunday. While waiting for those results I will be cutting and sewing blocks for the mystery quilt 9. When I'm tired of that I will oogle and contemplate Deb's center. Then I will move on to sewing on the 16 raggedy flannel teddy bear quilts I'm making for Christmas. Lastly and pretty important to 4-yr old and 5-yr old are the halloween costumes Grandma Sunshine makes each year. We trade off years for ideas. One year the girls choose and Grandma Sunshine grudgingly complies. Luckily, this year is my choice. The girls won't know what they will be until I deliver the costumes in October.  Way too fun!!!  They are into Barbie Dolls right now but I collect Raggedy Ann and Andy memorabilia. So I will combine the two. They will be dressed like Raggedy Anns but in Barbie Doll boxes. On the side of the Barbie box it will say "I'm just a Raggedy Ann in a Barbie Doll World."  I love coming up with this stuff. I've made all the costumes from scratch (including the Curious George mask) except the witches costumes. Grandma just couldn't get into the witches so I bought most ofthe costume. 

Grandma's choice: bumble bee (Mom was a bumble bee too), slice of lime (Dad was a bottle of Corona);  can't find the pics but rest assured they will turn up eventually. LOL

Mommy and Daddy's choice: little Bo Peep (mom was the sheep), Curious George (Dad was the man in the yellow hat);

Grandma's Choice: tropical fish

;

Girl's choice: witches (that was the girl's choice last year);

Grandma's choice this year: Raggedy Anns as Barbie Dolls. 

To be posted soon. LOL
