Ouch!  Looks like that hurts! 

HI Gloria. Welcome to the forum. This is a great group and lots of fun. My name is Ami and I just moved to Colorado.

It sure was. I wish I could go back. Thumbs ok. Cast off Thursday & new X-ray hopefully it’s healing. 

I hope all is well at your house. :0)

Ah no, here we go. Lol..

you’ll be at the naughty table right away!

On the challenge to make something out of the "ugly" FQ from last year's LEFT-RIGHT story - something in which you can put something - is there a rule about how much or how little of the challenge fabric we need to use?  I didn't think there was - just so we use that fabric as part of it.  But just wanted to check to be sure.

instructions say FEATURE your fat quarter in an item you make that is "SOMETHING YOU PUT SOMETHING IN".  Up to you to figure out what FEATURE means!! 

the item I am thinking of making,  since I don't consider the fabric to actually be 'ugly', will be composed mostly of the FQ...your mileage may vary!

I have managed to finish another block for my Deco Garden Forever Project.  If I am remembering correctly, vi have 3 more floral blocks of this size to do.

I've stitched all the leafy parts of the border blocks and need to stitch the circle accents on 10 of those border blocks.

The light at the end of the tunnel is getting brighter!

Edit:  I dunno why my photo isn't posting.  Entering messages from my cellphone is annoying.  Y'all will need to wait until I get back home this evening when I'll retry posting the picture.

Edit #2:  and there's the photo!  :-)

Thanks for all of the ideas Jo!  Those help.  I guess my bigger problem is that I don't care for this fabric...  at all.  I'll just make something and "gift" it to someone afterwards.

Hey Patty!  Does your group still use tote bags for kids books or something?
