Thank you

I want to thank everyone who made a block for my birthday and those who also made one to honor my Dad on his. I just can't tell you how much this means to me. If everyone who's indicated they're sending blocks directly to me makes just a block or 2 I'll have enough to add with my 40 to make 2 quilts that will be donated locally. And if I'm short a few blocks I'll just request what I need from the kitty to make up what I need.

For those of you who've offered and are waiting for me to send the instructions. I'll send those tonight. I've not been feeling well so I've gone to sleep pretty much as soon as supper was over the last few days. Please be patient with me and I'll answer all your emails soon.

Ironically after asking ya'll to sew along with me on my birthday I did NOT get any blocks sewn at all this weekend. I spent most of Saturday trying to keep up with email and catch up with blogs. SLOWLY I'm working my way down the list. Problem is with the holidays over and everyone getting back into their normal routines you ladies are getting quite chatty again! I hope to get thru the rest of my list this week. Then I can start all over again this weekend. LOL! Sometime in there I'd like to actually SEW something instead of just reading about what you ladies are doing!

And Sunday I wasn't feeling very well so it was a lazy morning. Then David and I went to town to run a couple errands and have an early birthday supper. Afterwhich I found myself sleeping in my chair for the rest of the evening/night. I do have 20 blue blocks prepped and ready to start so I'm going to get on those tonight when I get home while my supper cooks. Then I can go to sleep in my chair after I eat with a clear conscience. :-)

At some point I really need to get started on a UFO cause the ladies on the Stashbuster list are finishing things at an alarming rate! I started out at number 32 on the list but at the rate they're going I'll be queen in a few weeks! good thing I have one small UFO that just needs a bit of quilting and the binding to be finished. Now if I can just find where I put it.....

Good luck on finisheing that UFO!

Unfortunately the things that I have been working on were not even on my list - WTF I completely ignored the things that just need borders & I know I did not add those things that are ready for quilting.... (I send my stuff out, so it was no longer my job...)

Nancy, I'm a little behind. Send me instructions and your address. I'd be glad to do a block or three. What are they for again? I'm not even clear on that. Whatever it is, count me in.

Hi Nancy! It's been awhile for me too! LOL! I have been working on binding several of my projects. It takes me awhile, I can't hand sew very fast. Or pretty for that matter. LOL!

Take care and Happy Belated Birthday!

Nancy, I'm sorry you aren't feeling well. Hope you feel better soon.
I was going around bloglines, and everybody was talking about your string blocks, so I had to let you cut ahead in line, so I could figure out what they were talking about!

Hi Nancy -- I don't want to join (yet another) Yahoo group, but I'd love to have the instructions for the heart-strings blocks! They are all looking just beautiful and I think I need to join in. Thanks,
