I can "tolerate" a lot of stuff that I don't want to eat.

I've never heard of this veggie what ever crap so don't have a clue what it is! I do know it doesn't sound a bit good! Just give me Kraft cream cheese mixed with sugar free jello and I'll happily continue to dip my apple slices!

Please don't even get me started on this President! I did not vote for him! I rest my mouth...... :others-164:

What ever you ladies decide to do for the quilt along will be fine with me. I was thinking that it might be fun to do Table runners?? seems alot of us are doing them lately.

Mamu we will have multiple quilt alongs next year for sure, just thought it would be fun to start thinking up ideas for what we can plan on doing!!

Golo thanks fro the link, I thought it was something like that, the pillow wraps, its a neat idea for sure, would make a good swap too

What about pin cushions? There are so many cool designs for pin cushions, you can make them out of anything it seems. Another idea to throw into the 'pot'. :witch1:

I'd vote for pillow cases, pillows and pillow wraps. I need all of those. How about a combination of pillow cases, pillows and pillow wraps. January and February could be pillows and we could make kind of plain ones and holiday months like Easter or Halloween could be pillow wraps so we would have the wraps for those months. And then have a throw in pillow cases occasionally. We'd want to do international holidays because the Ausie's wouldn't have Independence Day (July 4th).

That reminds me. Gimpy, do you have an autumn holiday like a harvest day? That would be in our spring though. We have Thanksgiving which is the end of November.

How about we do our own version of whatever kind of pillow we want? Case, wrap, throw, etc.

Luvs Im well used to just making stuff to suit the americas and then swapping it around here at home. Im always making the opposite season items LOL, its no problem. We have local festivals for the seasons but I can usually find something to substitute for things like 4th july :D

Just thinking, I guess I should start a separate list of our ideas so we dont lose them in here, and looks like we need to do one for swap ideas too, this is fun :D

Lots of great ideas.....what if we did 12 different things. Pin cushions one month, pillowcases the next month, pillow wrap one month (this would be a good one to do for a holiday), table runner (another good one for a holiday month), maybe one month a small wall hanging.
Or....we could do a bigger quilt type project (I loved the star block quilt along and got two couch throws finished that way)

It would be nice to make something for summer and have it done by YOUR summer. Hey, let's follow Aussie seasons so we can be one time for North American season. :hammer:
