Just wanted to remind everyone that tomorrow is the deadline to sign up for the zippered pouch swap so if you are thinking about joining in on the fun, please go to the forum & sign up.  They are fun to make & fun to use.

GREAT design, QD

Comment by QuiltDragon on Saturday

Hey Barbara Blackwell! Long time no see - glad to have you in this fun group!

Ally, Spunky Stitches has a bunch of great bags & very good instructions. I just made on from Off With Their Threads that are also cool with good instructions.

I've been working on a Secret Pumpkin swap for an online custom fabric group. Will post pics at the end of October - I don't think she's in QWU, but don't want to take any chances. I did make this string backpack for my website.

Thanks Ally.  That is funny about your friend Barbara.  Isn't it weird how CT can block her, but not find the time to let all of us know what they intend to do with this site?  I am the type of person who likes to get as much info as I can before I make a decision so this is frustrating the tar out of me.

Sheila, be sure to post a pic of Ms. Yazi wearing her new duds when you get them done.  I will have to go check out that designs.  I signed up to get Urban Threads e-mails, but have yet to actually buy any of them.  

I have been working hard to get the quilt finished made up of the spring blocks several of us swapped a few years ago.  Today I decided to put 60's on 6 on the Sirius XM I get on my Dish Network & put the pedal to the medal.  If all goes as planned, it will be ready for binding by Sunday.  After I have my elbow surgery, I plan on getting started on the quilting of the top made from those house blocks that I believe are even older than the spring blocks.  Longarm quilting is getting to be so expensive that I just can't afford to send that many tops out any more.

Jannaka is hoping to get married next July so she asked me to make them a new king size quilt out of purples & greens so I think I'm going to make a French Braid quilt.  That one will definitely be sent out to be longarm quilted!

Janet - i have only made one zipper bag in hoop under instructions from class , ages ago so hope you don't mind bag will not been done in the hoop.

Also I had a chuckle when you posted Barbara Blackwells joining. She is my Aussie friend who we go see when in Australia. So let me fill you all in. Remember the lady that offered another site to join. Well Love of Art Quilts were concerned that we would lose all the pictures from swaps and challenges so Barb got her hubby to go in and try and transferr them to a file, in doing so he crashed the site and seems join ALL the different groups. So Connecting Threads blocked Barbs account so they had to get in touch with Admin not sure if they thought it was a hacker. Eventually they let Barb back in and now she has to unjoin the groups that accidently were joined. So I think we are all in LOAQ going to exchange emails just incase we get locked out. And maybe if the time comes even maybe make a group on Facebook. Just talking about it. Will let you all know what they decide to do.

I don't have peoples email addresses here but do see a few on facebook and I think a couple of people see my thread painting site.

Janet i expect you will want peoples email addresses for this swap. I will put mine in messenger FB for you.

Saw that, Janet. I have a design from another source I'm pondering, though.

Heather got Yazi a new (to her) jeans jacket. Remember when I put the paisley's on the old one? Well, Bill went to Columbus and picked it up and Heather chose an Urban Threads design - it's UT20710 if anyone is interested. It's going to fit perfectly in the space! That's on my agenda for the weekend. I'll post a pic once it's done. I'm still ruminating on colors since it's going on a denim background. Trying to decide if the colors as shown will work well with that. Yazi actually picked it out of several designs that would work (unicorns, mermaids, etc.) LOL! That kid.

Happy Friday to everyone.  I wanted to let everyone know that Embroidery Library is having a sale on some designs and included are 3 zipper pouches so if you don't already have one, you should check them out.

Go Tanyel! Got a loaner - That's GREAT news!

Barbara Blackwell - Welcome! We're truly not as nuts as we may sound. We're just here to have fun.
