"Exactly, no pressure. However, I am trying to stay on top of this quilt so that in January I can put it all together and have it ready for the next year. After all, I have Winter Memories to finish up (4 more blocks) and about 40 more…"
"OK I will post a picture of my pattern ... it shows the eye design, and I will place an "X" (smallish) where it should go. I have some of the "white with floating black pupil eyes" that I use with little animals, I may…"
"8 little fishy done, 8 to go. Have to affix and applique on. That is for tomorrow afternoon. Have Featherweight meeting in the morning. Here is a finished Moorish Idol fish. Debating, embroidered eye, button or ??"
"OK I am in....I might do a combo of embroidery and pumpkin ... will have to think about design AFTER I finish with the fish, plus I have 2 baby quilts to make (both due in October) and 3 QOVs to finish....Carla, you are a slave driver LOL"
"Make special quilts for special people in memory of your son. Think you will feel his presence as you do those acts of kindness. Am sure there as senior centers or memory care units for our aging family members who would love fiddle…"
"Ok, I thought and thought and decided to add the border. The change I made was to make it 1/2” instead of the 1”. I figure once I add the binding in the same color, it will be a nice 1” border. So it is now 44 x…"

Tell us about yourself—as much or as little as you like.
I am a crafter. I knit, crochet, sew (fun stuff, no clothes), and quilt. I learned to applique also and love to needle turn, but eyes are not as good as they were. Live in Sun City Anthem in NV and belong to the Sewing Club.
I'm just one kitty shy of being a crazy cat lady. I foster orphan kitties for a rescue organization. I kept all four of my kitties the first time I fostered. I already had 3. I make tiny kittie blankie a with Minky swirl fabric for each kitty to take home. Next kitten season I'm sure I'll be a card carrying crazy cat lady.
Looks like the "friending" worked, but when I try to compose, it is saying I have no friends. Anyway, I have lots of flower patterns I could adapt to the Got Water theme. Thank you for the offer. There is another row by row with watering can and flowers...may wilt the one the can can't reach.
Thanks so much for the you tube site, now I'm going to be in trouble making boxes. I also have some pre-quilted fabric I'd like to get rid of so guess where it's going? Those boxes I think will make good thread catchers by our chairs where we hand sew, will make as quick Xmas gifts foe my quilting friends. Again thanks, Judi
