You should be able to get a disposable one fairly inexpensively, I think. :D

Not a problem charal. There are times I don't get on much either. And right now I probably should be sewing. Still things I need to finish for Christmas!

Me too! I have narrowed mine down to Stars, Hearts, or Cats. Am leaning towards hearts, though. But stars would be lovely, there are so many.... and I have five cats living with me, so that would be cute too. UGH! Would flip a coin if I could find one that has three sides, not two and an edge. lol!

Stacy,

I mailed your blocks on 12/8. Sorry for being so late. I took them to Charleston with me to mail from there but left your address in San Diego. Ugh!

Anyway, have you received them yet??? I hope so and I really hope you like them.

Merry Christmas and Happy Birthday!!!
Lora.

Isn't it fun to pet nice blocks and fabrics. DH does NOT understand that one though.

I finished my BBS quilt last night. DH hung it on the curtain rod (but he will have to move it later, so it does not touch the floor). This am, when I got up, it was like seeing a new stained glass window. The picture does not nearly do it credit. Thank you all for your lovely blocks.[url=][/url]

DH stood there and admired it rather loudly as I made breakfast this morning.

Marynel, That is a stunning quilt. How beautiful it must be hanging in the window. Like looking at a stained glass in a cathedral. Awesome!

My blocks are still sitting in a box too! Embarassed

For anyone who wants to do a window quilt, remember the backing should be bleached muslin, or other white, for the best effect.

Hummerlou, the DH and i like it just fine where it is.

Today I decided to work on BBS 09 so that I would have a better idea of what scraps i really won't need.

Bizkitea98 Finished the one remaining seam

Bearfoot, I found a block in my stash that I think is right for you.

Cottonpicker. Done DH likes it.

Iambuzzysma...I hope to take that one as hand work at Dr. visit tomorrow, although I MAY not as I am unsure of the background. A floral? WOW? a pastel?

LEM almost done I stopped for tonight.

Linda 2B done. I'll probably ship it with your scraps.

Charal Still deciding which block to do. I have definitely decided this one about 6 different ways. Currently thinking of some sort of star, but it may be an animal or a basket or......

StillStitchen in Alva Done last week

TLC done today

Stcycly66 done yesterday, except for the hand.

PK done yesterdaY lovehearts

iambuzzysma, Not as far as I'm concerned. I'm perfecly willing to ship directly when I've recovered from today and pressed. (After about 4 hours of sleep, we traveled to Redding (1.5 hrs), had a shot, waited 4 hrs, then had a total body scan. DH and I are pooped)

After I gave the DH the wrong label for shipping the Bblocks, shipping them off to LEM, instead, I couldn't find the gift for my secret bunny. Fortunately, the cleaning crew found it today. I thought it might have gone with the BBS package.
