Well ladies, I guess I better add my name to this list before I forget.  I would like a 12.5 x 12.5" scrappy string block.  Recently, I have really gotten in the scrappy string block mood.  I love…Continue

Colleen would like the same pattern used as Kris, but with a slight twist.  She would like the center blue, the short side white and the long side red.Continue

Lee would like crazy blocks.  12.5 x 12.5"  Red, Whites, and Blues, of course.  I know that Lee likes live theater, so I was thinking maybe blocks that represented a different Broadway play.  Even…Continue

Kathy - my kids are going to LOVE seeing those shirts.  IF I can get Tom to wear his, lol!  I'm going to try.  You're the best :)

Here is the list we'll be voting on tomorrow!  As most of you probably know MQP is shutting us down come April. Riana Noyes is setting us up in Needlespot to try to keep us together. You must become a member in if you wish to continue on with the UFO group. I will not be having a Secret Santa group this year due to the transition of this move and my personal move.

I mailed the rest of my blocks yesterday.  SS sister’s block is in her box.  I repackaged them.  It went from $4.20 each to $1.08 each.  Just changed envelope size.  Crazy.  They will arrive at various days over the next week.  The box is supposed to arrive by Saturday.

Wow! Ginny, you sure hit the jackpot!! Love the grinch ornament with the quilt chimney! Can't wait to see the puzzle finished...looks like fun.

I received a beautiful Ohio star block today from Beth. Kris gave me a lovely Ohio Star block during her visit in November before I moved. I'm sure others will catch up to me soon.

Rhoda and the grandkids weren't able to visit this weekend as Joshua was exposed to Covid. So they are waiting till they can all be tested next week and will be up next weekend as long as they test negative.

I got so many wonderful things from Beth! She was so "Over the Top" generous! The lighted tweezers are my son's favorite thing and I will have to keep an eye out or they may "disappear"! LOL She got me things on my wish list and things I didn't even know I wished for but am very happy to receive. A Christmas story book, a beautiful spiritual journal, a new ruler to experiment with, a pair of Christmas hot mitts, a wool penny rug kit, a ladybug pattern, a seam guide for my machine, a jigsaw puzzle that is a quilter's fantasy lodge and I plan to glue together and hang when I finish it, a bottle of Best Press that I have only seen and never used til now, a nice set of Sunflower quilt note cards, a very cool coffee mug with a handmade cozy for it, cranberry quilt blocks soaps that smell yummy, two pattern books (one I have wanted for years!) fit for lots of scrappy making, a new Jack the Ripper to date as infrequently as possible, an adorable Grinch Christmas ornament!  As I said before, I am overwhelmed with gratitude.

WooHoo, I got a box from Colleen today and I couldn't be more thrilled.   It has my favorite tea from Republic of Tea.  It is the Red Hot Holiday blend.  It is a limited edition that they put out every year for the holidays.  I tried to order some, but they were sold out, so this was such a welcome surprise.  There were lots of other fun surprises, but for a tea addict, this and the mug topped the list.  She sent me so many great things for my kitchen,  Towels, apron, notebooks.  I woke up with the virus this morning and feel like crap, so this really brightened my day.

Kris, I knew you and Tom have such a great sense of humor, so I hoped you would like the shirts.  I hope they fit, if not, let me know.  I thought that your kids and g-kids would get a kick out of them too.

Anixously awaiting my ss box to arrive.  Hmmm, wonder who it is.

Comment by Kris Howell on January 6, 2022 at 8:29pm

My SS box is mailed, and projected to arrive on Saturday.

Linda - yours is mailed and is projected to arrive on Monday. 

Comment by Kris Howell on January 6, 2022 at 8:29pm

Got my box today and found out it was from Kathy Gurgone which made it extra special as we got to meet Kathy and Joe this summer!  Amongst other fun stuff was a T-shirt for me which said: If found wandering aimlessly around a fabric store return to Tom.  And a T-shirt for Tom which said:  I'm Tom.  I roared with laughter.  There are many other fun things in there and I'll take a picture tomorrow.  Thank you, thank you, Kathy!  Loved finding the box too.  Earlene Fowler's books, all with a quilt block as the title, are great fun reading and I haven't read Fool's Puzzle yet.  Looking forward to it.

SS box got mailed yesterday. Now my goal is to get my blocks finished this week so they can be mailed Monday - have a couple more to do. Kitchen remodeling is almost done -appliances came yesterday and washer, dryer and dish washer will be hooked up in the next day or 2. All the bathroom stuff should be delivered Monday and then the contractor will start the bathrooms. Hard to believe how long we have had to wait for some of the things we ordered. Next project is for me to start taking the wallpaper off the dining room walls - grand children are going to come help remove the wallpaper  so we can get it and the kitchen painted. We use to do our own painting but no more. It is to hard on my back, neck and shoulders and my husband hates painting.

Hope everyone is stay well and safe.
