I had a nice reply to your post...and my machine got the Blue Screen of Death..sigh...dunno why...hopefully it does not do that every time I post to the forum!!

yes..they are sitting on my sewing table...

one of the things I acquired in the last few months is a set of snap on feet for a sewing machine...unknown if they will work with my slant machine..but I do have the slant snap on adapter..so I think they will...I was wanting to try a few of them out with these two projects..but I have been so super busy at work (triple booked) and have some outside of work stuff that is taking up a lot of time...so we shall see if I can eek out a bit of time to play...if not..they come back to Retreat as they are!!

sigh.  February is getting nearly impossible for me to be away from work.  Perhaps as time gets closer things may change, but for now I don't think I'll be able to go again this year.  Sure miss you guys.

And.....once again, I am behind on my retreat projects!! Happens every year!!!

Yes, me too!  I need to get my lizard project quilted and my fat qtr challenge made.    I guess I need to work on them in the early morning hours when it's quiet.

Wouldn't you know it, Zahn dragged them in there to show them something.  Dang! Doesn't it figure.

Oh No, well it probably wasn't as bad as mine at it's worst.  :).  Don't you know creative people do leave messes.

Sorry you have been sick and I'm glad to hear you are on the mend, albeit slow.  Good to see you here.  I haven't been here much either, this year has been a busy chaotic one.

Announcing the Lotto Block ---***--- (Apologies for my absence - no internet at home)

String Block

1. fabric foundation - use cheapest - thinnest - muslin (even poly blend)

2. Size of block - raw size 9 1/2 inches

3. Diagonally sew strips.

4. Center stripe is Kona Prussian color # 454 - 2 1/2 inch wide strip sewn from upper left to lower right corner.

5. One side - use dark strips - other side use light strips - Any width strips are acceptable - wonky adds interest. Trim roughly to size - any where from 9 1/2 inch to 10 inch sq. is just fine.

6. Maximum number of blocks eligible for drawing tickets - 15.

You just wait.  I'm going to waddle over there and sit on you.

That was off the table months ago.  Have you started yet?  It was awful!
