Warning Drugs and quilting DO NOT MIX!!!!
So, I took my muscle relaxer because I was having spasms in my back and neck. I waited all day long because I had to go get my kids from school...I have to tell ya'll I DO NOT like to take medicine!! If I am offered a pain killer after teeth or whatever I opt to just take Tylenol (I cannot do codine it makes me sick) and sometimes meds have a FUNNY effect on me.

OK OK to the block and the problem... D-8 Dee Dee's Delight
Now at first sight it really does not look that bad (never mind those puckers I know when I press it I can get those out!!
 I have a few strings hanin around here and there...
any of ya'll catch my GINORMOUS OOPS...
well I was half way done and set down my work to go do something else and that is when I cought it.
 let me show you a pic of the back Yup I had sewn those darn little melons onto the wrong side of the fabric!!! at this point I was slurring my swear words and there was no way in this world I was gonna take it apart! (This morning I laugh, but there was no giggles from the peanut gallery last night) well I finished it anyway! Even if it is backwards!!
Charachter I keep telling myself!
Oh and lesson learned!! I had never taken those meds before and now I know how they will get me drunker than any alcohol ever would! I fell asleep at 6:30 last night (and woke up this morning at 3:30)

yes folks, I pulled out Jane. truth be told my body is killing me and I took a few drugs (legal drugs) yesterday and sat on the couch most of the day. I had DVRed the Lord of the Rings trillogy (because I have never seen them) and I sat on the couch with some hand work. This was the stuff that I had preped to take to My Baby Brothers house (and worked on very little while I was there). I have two more in bags and I just might curl up on the couch again this afternoon. I am just sore all over grrr shange of weather!
OK anywhoo

L-13 is Harvest Moon (or in my case wonky circles! LOL they were giving me a tough time)I do so wish there was a way to flip these photos here! This is not how I took it one my camera! Why does blogger insist on changing some of them! LOL I guess I just have to be happy that this is not a photo of a person and now they are lying down! hehe I am cracking myself up and getting a little off subject OK so I know it has been MONTHS since a Jane update, so here I am...

The crazy dress

So remember the post about my friend Beffy and her dress... well she posted pics today (yes I know it is far from Halloween, but giver her a break she a busy gal)
 She was a little ummm well unsure about the gals being so, well, out there!!  But she was going to a local bar (from our small town) and over 90% of the people in the bar were friends of hers! I did feel bad that this was all of her breasts I could cover, but if you recall she cut the material prior to me coming in on the project and she did not want to purchase more material as it was 'just for a costume'! Well she and her husband were a REAL hit!! I just love her and her husband they are great people who would do anything for you and I could not say no when she asked for help!!!
The 'Liesure Suit Larry' beside her is her husband Jason and to say that he was wowed by her costume is to put it lightly! I went to high school with all but one of these folks. Oh and not Jason either. He is normally a quiet guy so the fact that he would be this crazy... well Beffy has influenced her Jason like I influence my Honeyman!!
OK maybe today I can get something done...but the housework unfortunately has to come first!! gggrrrrr! hehe
Lots of luck getting projects done today,

My package came YAY!!

Well OK one of the three I was waiting for! I think I said I am doing two swaps. One of them our fabrics had to be in Oct15th, but she had a heck of a time getting everyones stuff there and black listed one person and well I have not yet gotten my fall colour exchange blocks... The other had to be in by Nov 1st (mine got there a day late darn me!!) That one was Christmas material. I am very patiently awaiting these two packages! I do so LOVE to do swaps!
OK But here is my THRIIIILLLL!!! I ordered material from Connecting Threads on the 8th. It arrived yesterday!! That is some great turn around!! OK they had some clearance that was can you guess oh yes 30's stuff!! And if you order $50 or more the shipping is free! Well ummm yes I will order enough so I get free shipping. I ordered 1/4 yard of all but one of the materials (that last one I ordered 1/2 yard). I ended up getting 32 materials for just a little over $50!! That was a LOT of fabric for the price! And it is BEAUTIFUL!!!
OK Let me start by saying so sorry about the lovely quality of the pics, my camera and the light (or lack there of) were really not cooperating with me this morning! So LOOK at that  HUGE BOX! I have never ordered material from the internet before. First of all you never quite know what you are getting if you cannot feel it and see it in person! But I have to say these are very nice materials! 

 Now most of what I got was 30's stuff, bit I will start with the few that are not (as that is how they happened to load up on this contraption and I have the hardest time moving the pics around on this blogger) I digress... I got two christmas loved the little trees... and the other four here are a woodland creature thing with a flowery material to coordinate! Not sure what I am going to use them for, but the little mushrooms and racoons were just to cute to pass up!!

When I do find a material I like, especially if it is such a great deal I can't pass it up... Yes I am that gal who gets it in evey colour!! LOL it is just like if you find a great fitting pair of jeans or shirt right!! Four of the little flowers, three of the 'lifesavers', I do think I already have this one in red from my trip to Door County, just checked and YUP, so yay another coordinating, and you can NEVER pass up a good solid right! The solids are the coordinating for a collection called 'Canning Day' and oh yes, if they had it I bought it!!

 Really bad picture alert... Well there are two of the tiny polkadot, not so sure if they are really my favorite, but I know they will coordinate well and make a great addition to any of these fabrics!  I do so wish I would have been able to find a few more purples! I will have to keep looking! The reds ALWAYS speak to me and there is a whole lot of flowers going on here!! I was just talking to someone the other day and said I find it crazy that I am so drawn to the 30's stuff when I am 1. not a pastel gal and 2. really not a flowery gal!! Go figure right!! But when you love something...

Loved the cherries and apples! The apricot coloured cherries material is the one I got half a yard of. I think the crazy teal apples just jump off of the material!! and there are the cute little leaves! I have a few ideas what I am going to use this for!!
Sad Christmas is coming, no more material till the new year! I have to start shopping for my kids!! I get kind of grumbly with christmas shopping, but I guess that is for another post! LOL

Hope you have found as great of a deal as I have on something that you LOVE!!

So I have downloaded and they are BLURRYYYY! But I guess that blury is better than nothing for now!

"Spiders, Bats, and Kitty Cats"

 So, I tried to upload a pic of just the green border and my computer and blogger are not cooperating! So I guess I just get the finished top! I loved the bright green and it keeps it not so dark! I did also do a bold black border to ground it all, and I am thinking purple for the binding. I did move some of the blocks around! I remember reading Robin's blog about her taking a pic in black and white to try to organize her thoughts when there is so much going on! Thank you Robin! I did just that and boy was it lopsided!! I rearanged a few times and was much more pleased with this layout!!  I do listen and REALLY appreciate all of the things that my bloggy friends share! I realized I did not take a pic of my backing and will have to follow up with that! My Honeyman is asking so many questions now about quilting it and how long and on and on and to tell you the truth I do not have the answers! hehe! I guess I will figure those out as I go along as well! I do learn best hands on anyway!! I am (hopefully) going to a sit and sew on Friday and will have a few of my questions answered there!!Not all that long ago there was also a post on a few of the blogs that I follow about our 'work area' well, this is my little nook off of the end of my living room! The 'seat' is actually a cube that holds afghans that I have made! I do need to make some kind of pillow to top it as it is kind of hard! LOL but the nice part about where it is...I can see the TV (have to have background noise) and the fire place (fake, but still gives off heat) is right behind me for those chilly winter days! My tabke is kind of a mess here and I was watching Netfilx on my laptop. Law and order is my best friend when I am working at the machine! LOL

Hope this finds everyone warm! and finishing up a project!!

No pics... but maybe tonight!!

So I am so very thrilled and proud of my self right now! I have finished up the quilt top for my QuiltUberfest Blocks!! But sadly my daughters friend took my USB cord so I cannot download the pics of it. I have it hanging up in the other room and I stop and look every time I walk past! I now have the pleaure of trying to figure out how to quilt it! This will be a whole new adventure! But I am ready for the task! Oh, I also got the material for the backing and am going to put that together either today or tomorrow.
I also have ordered some more 30's fabrics and cannot wait to use those! I have a pattern picked out from my Jelly roll book. Then there is to figure out the best pattern to use for my Honeyman's material! I just have not found a pattern I like for it! And I know that I will be mad at myself if I use something and am not altogether happy with what I have chosen! So off to look I will go!!
It is cold and blustery and rain/sleet/talking about snowing outside! Grrrrr well what better place to be than inside working on a project!!
i have also joined a local quilt group. I went to my first meeting last Tuesday and there is a sit and sew this Friday evening that I am hopeing to attend! SOOO much going on! Oh and next week have to ship my Dad off to my Baby Brother's (From IL to TX) Busy, busy, busy! But I would not have it any other way!!
Hope this finds you all well and just as busy and content as I!!
