Its been a while since I had anything to post...but...I have finally finished a quilt ! Being Football season, it is my time of year. I have been in a football pool at work for a number of years and this is a thank you to Joan who runs it. She puts a lot of work each week into keeping track of all wins (losses t00) it is !!!

CQ Block

On the HGTV board, I participated in a crazy quilt one block swap...names were drawn and you needed to make a block based on what your swapper loved. I got a really funny lady named Sassy who wanted an all white backgroud, romantical type block...this for me was easy as I love "girlie" type things...I went with a wedding theme for her and this is what I came up with !! Hopefully Sassy loves her block !

Not missing

I havent been missing in action, just trying to finish up a few things for swaps !
Today I finished Terrimae's little Summer mini as part of the HGTV group mini swap. I am calling it Swimsuit sampler and will post a picture once Terri receives it later this week.

I also finished making the foundation block for Sassyneedlepusher for Nicki's one block swap for CQ on the HGTV board....I am very happy with the way it turned out and cant believe that I made it with no help...pretty soon I will start embellishing it for her to make sure it is done for the August deadline.

Im also hosting a Jumpin'Jivin' swap on the HGTV board where 20 women have signed up to make 4 gifts each and in turn I will swap them out when I have received them all. The goal is to have them all reach their new homes in time to open them from July 1-4th !!!!

So...what are you working on ????
