Mine is all appliqued and ready to sandwich and start quilting! I have to wait till I get home though. That would be this Thursday.

My back is hurting so bad today. Could it be to much playing with those two little grandkids?????? I need to go home just to rest!!

Mine is about 24 inches square. Hey look, I bought a new keyboard, so can type with capitals and proper punctuation. Had no idea they were so affordable. Its a little small but I can adjust. Cheesy

We still have to decide on a date for the party. My vote's for December 5th, its a Saturday and early enough to not conflict with all the craziness of parties, baking, visits, shopping etc. Besides, mine is finished and ready to mail. Cheesy

Mines approx. 21 x 21. Went to the Chriopracter this morning and I had 5 vertabras in my neck out! No wonder I was hurting so bad. Hubby took me so I didn't have a chance to stop at the quilt shop for my backing fabric for this swap. Guess I'll go later in the week and get some.

You have to steal it. Leave your machine set up and ready to sew at all times. This may mean delaying dinner for several days. Take thirty seconds off everything you do, like brushing teeth or showering. There may be an advantage here in that people won't be very anxious to talk to you. Wear your clothes an extra day, it cuts laundry in half.

Did you know it takes a week for mold to appear on unwashed dishes? And children have been know to raid the refrigerator when they get really hungry. Even the very young, though they are limited to items in the bottom drawers. This is usually fruit, so very good for them and they have access to everything the older ones spill.

I hope these suggestions help.
