pictures to be posted later. First, I have to get caught up. Woke up this morning at 4 am (after going to bed at midnight), so decided to get up and work on my fabric postcards. This is my "G"- for Girlfriends. If there is anything cuter than these two, I don't know what it is! It didn't turn out as cute as I thought it would, so it's not my new favorite, but I'm happy with it.
My friend, Susan is here from California on business, but she stayed over an extra day because we haven't seen one another in 3 or 4 years. Going to pick her up, turn her rental car in, tour the CNN Center, have lunch, then take her to the airport. Hopefully I can stay awake tonight - although a lot of good that did me last night!

"Our group has many dear ladies on it, and I ask that if you are disappointed with your swap heart, then please keep your feelings to yourself. Every stitch in these hearts will have been made with the greatest of intentions, the grandest of planning and labor from the heart. "
Yes! A kindler, gentler Yahoo group!
I was the 400th member to join the group, and as my reward, a bunch of people have sent me goodies to build my CQ stash! But they're not doing it just for me...any new person who joins can post an email and some of the members will be a "starter stash" package in the mail. Getting the mail every day is like Christmas, and they are sooo generous! Here are photos of some of the stuff they have sent, just out of the goodness and kindness of their hearts!

This is the "sane" quilt I have most recently finished. The fabrics are all batiks, and I named it "Batik Sun Dance" because the quilting makes each block look like a dancing sun to me. It was quilted by Melinda Fulkerson with a really pretty variegated thread. Verrry happy to have another UFO crossed off the list!

This was a frustratingly fun card to do...the theme was Abstract, and this is "In the Style of Mondrian."

I tried to start a blog ages ago, but Ms. Technology couldn't figure it out. And, besides there's the time issue thingie, plus, who wants to read about what someone else is doing? Well, I do - I can get lost for hours reading someone else's blog!
