Fantastic job!  I'm glad I'm not a judge and having to pick the best one because that's one decision I couldn't make.

A question about the bottom quilt - are the diamonds appliqued on or did you actually cut and sew them into the squares?

Oh my, I just realized it's almost the end of September and I don't have my square done and it looks like no one else has either (or you just haven't posted pictures.)

I'm going to try my best to get mine done this week so that when the October ones are posted, I'm not behind  Grin

4 more days until launch!

You're all starting to make me nervous - I hope you will like the patterns I pick and that the beginners will find the easy ones easy and the more experienced will find the harder ones enough of a challenge!

Wow, that gourd is amazing and oh, so small!

I can't imagine what size brush kmac must have used to paint those ferrets.

I am so hoping that people are still reading this thread so they can see the wonderful item I received from Cinderly as a thank you.  It's not her fault it took so long, the post office lost the first package she sent me!

I opened the package and was awed but also thought she went way beyond 'the call of duty' in what she sent me.  Then I read the note included and knew what was happening.

My actual thank you gift was this wonderful apron

Wow, is it ever hard to take a picture of yourself and not include your head  Grin  (not that brave, yet)

It's not the greatest picture of the apron - you can hardly tell that the fabric is burgundy and the bottom, skirt pockets and upper pocket have an added part that is burgundy with gold dots.

Cinderly knew it was my birthday in September so she included these wonderful fabrics as a present

Isn't she wonderful!  THANK YOU cinderly for all these fantastic items!

My mother had a magnetic pin cushion - I had totally forgotten how much I hated hers - hers was like a little cup with a magnet around the top - and the pins would kind of stick to the ring - but they would also get shoved on down to the bottom and I cringed at thinking about getting those pins out!

I have a magnetic pin cushion and it sounds just like your Mom's.  I have two solutions to when pins get down to the bottom - either turn it over and give it a little shake (the magnet catches the pins) or take the top off and reach inside to retrieve  Grin   Maybe her magnetic top didn't come off but mine does.  I inherited this one from my grandma about 20 years ago and it's fantastic - I've dropped it on the floor and not lost one pin.

I claim devilninny for:

- i need a cute pin cushion!  anything goes!
- interesting surprise package: candy, postcards, mix cds, surprises from your area!  i just got an amazing one from australia and i want more!

This is my 4th claim (1 has been received)

I'm in Alberta, Canada.


A tablecloth (70" x 50") with a snowflake, sunflower or leaf themed fabric.

I'd love a plush teddy bear - around 12" would be great!

A butcher style apron (adult large) with no pockets (see my likes below for fabric ideas.)

A knitting apron like this:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/msg971894 but with different fabric.

9x13 cake pan carrier, with handles


12” squares for a craftster quilt - I like pretty rather than creepy - any colors or patterns are fine but if you need ideas, check out this website:  http://www.quilterscache.com/BlocksbySizeC.html


Eeyore, Pooh or Tigger crocheted in thread - I already have Piglet and he's getting lonely for his friends.  (I can supply the pattern)


A t-shirt (man's x-large) with an M&M character stenciled on the front (it's for my hubby who loves M&Ms)

Address labels with my real name on them.

I like watches that have 'fun' designs on the face or in the band.

Something from your country (preferrably not Canada or the US.)

If you want to throw in an extra with any of the above wishes, I'm looking for pens with cool, wacky designs on them.  The more outlandish they are, the less likely someone is to steal them when I work!

I have themes in my house each season so I like things made with sunflowers, tulips, scarecrows, snowmen or snowflakes.  I also like dark green and dark blue.

I've purchase a few things and know at least 3 items I am making but, since there are still a number of items on my list, I'm going to think of more things to make.

I am in! What do I have to do?

Nothing special.  Check back to this post on October 1st and see the first months squares.  Make one or both of them and then post a picture of them in this thread if you want to share them with us.  Then on the 1st of each month, check here for the new square patterns
