Wow!!!! That is really great!

Hattie's sending me some Mexican textiles and I'm trying to think of what I want to do with them. I'm sure that when I see them I'll know.

Kay--You've just given me a super idea: to incorporate a Kenta cloth bookmark that a Red Cross friend brought me, and a small square of fabric that a pen-pal sent me from England in 1955 into a quilt. Thank you and good luck with your Mexican textiles, you lucky thing, you!

Very nice, and not "blah" at all!

Kay and Bogie--Thank you for the compliments. (Bogie, the colors may keep your father from getting his nap. He hasn't done a trial run, yet, since he's been working at the Red Cross this week.)

WHOOT!!! You got it done! YEA for you!!

Isn't it great to finish a project? I've spent the past few months trying to do just that. I've had three of EM's lap quilts machine quilted, and I've bound them. I've been working on a project for my sister and her girls, and Dear Husband's "Sails and Whales" quilt is finished except for the binding. I plan to do that binding during the week between Christmas and New Years.

I'm so glad HH has his lap quilt, and I'm eager to see what you do with the fabric I gave to you. I think it's a great idea to incorporate fabrics from other friends. I've made five wallhangings (tops only so far) from the material you gave to me, and I have a lot left to use in other quilts. Each time I see one of those pieces of fabric, I'll think of you.

Merry Christmas, my friend, and all the best this coming year!

Have a wonderful holiday. And oh I am not the Hattie who is sending the textiles but another Hattie entirely!

Buffy--Yes, it's great to get that item off of my plate. The fabrics that you gave me included a Jacobean print and coordinating vines/twigs/dots. The only fabric that you sent me that will not be used in this quilt was a green moire-patterned fabric that I used, instead, in a Trial Quilt previously posted.

Hattie--Thank you for the wishes and for clarifying that there are more Hatties in the blogosphere than I might have thought. After my Aunt Hattie died (about 50 years ago), I knew no others until I ran into you via Ronni's blog. Interesting. Happy holidays to you!
