Is this it? Yes, yes, I think it is! This is my spot.  Grin

Group 1
Sloth003 - block 1 & block 3

Stellou - Friendship Star blocks

Sparkledust - Anvil blocks  Even though two of the blocks look blue, I promise they're really purple. I had hoped that photographing them outdoors would give true colors, but guess the problem is with my camera rather than the lighting.

Alwaysinmyroom - Garden Fence blocks


Group 2
Carolmb - Road to Oklahoma blocks. My paternal grandmother was born in Indian Territories, which became eastern Oklahoma, the first member of her family not to be born in France. My paternal grandfather immigrated here from Italy. My maternal grandfather came from St. Louis but his mother came from Bohemia. My maternal grandmother was born in Texas, but her ancestry traces back to Scotland, Ireland, Wales, a co-author of the Declaration of Independence, and a signer of that document. So the Road to Oklahoma block truly does represent the paths my family took to arrive here. The background looks like dust swirls, which reminds me of the Dust Bowl that ravaged western Oklahoma in the 1920s and 30s. The green represents our trees and grasslands. Oklahoma is home to one of the largest and last untouched grassland prairies left in the US and my part of the state is referred to as Green Country.

Melladh - cats

Cursive_Queen - Halloween stars

Emisaurus - Broken Herringbone

Cute star beads! Like the hole placement especially. Looks like the beads will hang so much better than the commercial ones. How did you get them so precise?

I'm not a big octopi fan but that one's just too cute not to love it. Really admire your clay talents. I keep telling myself that I need to try making something, but then I fall right back into my comfort zone of crafting with paper or fabric. Think that clay work needs to be on my bucket list, but it's so much easier just to admire talented people like you!

Very nice job on the clothing, too!

Went through a lot of patterns last night looking at things my partner might like. Guess I could be on pinterest instead, but that's like the bottomless pit of ideas. Sucks your time away but what a great way to go.

Skatergirl, now you need to do Lilo so Stitch isn't lonely.  Cheesy

My partner finally sent all her crafted notecards, so I got mine this morning. Yeah! She said she tried to use a different style for each of her partners (She had 5 counting me, so we'll see how she did when the others arrive in Canada, Texas, and Oregon). She said she's been on a scalloped lace and flowers kick, so that's the style she used on most of mine.

What a generous partner to include the basket, too. Very helpful.

Post office says my notecards should arrive tomorrow . . . something about they couldn't deliver until the cards for the real swap had been sent to my partners.  Huh

As Suereal suggests: Take lots of pictures! At most shows it's okay to take photos of the display quilts, but if there are vendor booths it would be a good idea to ask permission before snapping away. Usually the quilts in those booths are patterns or kits that they're selling, so they don't always appreciate photos unless you've bought their product.

Another suggestion is to look at everything before you buy. It's easy to binge buy when you see so many awesome goodies. But it's painful when you get to the end, find that one absolutely perfect item, and you've already blown your budget. I don't think I've ever managed to stay totally within my quilt budget, but I AM getting much better. Grin

Above all, enjoy, and give yourself plenty of time just to relax and absorb the beauty and artistry.

Nearly done with my last set, so hope to send everything tomorrow. Otherwise I won't be able to send until Monday.

Haven't finished looking through your link, Lindy, but just had to stop and laugh when I saw you had pinned the Charlie Brown ornaments I made for Sarahelise last year. Even if we don't have each other for partners, I may have to drop a set in the mail to you closer to Xmas. I love sending things to good homes and yours is one of the best!
