Pammy...nothing personal, but UGH I cannot stand Douglasville.... we had the most horrific experience there with a stupid traffic ticket my DH got there while driving from SC to TX for drill weekend....1 speeding ticket required 1400.00 in fines and court costs, 3 return visits to GA, 1 yr probation @ 45.00/month....it was crazy. The judge even made my DH wait till 4pm on his SECOND TRIP back to GA for this ticket (After we had paid it already) while he called an AF recruiter to come into the courtroom and verify each of the ribbons on his uniform. He didn't believe DH could have earned them all and thought he was lying. They hunted down his FS and complained that he was "impersonating an officer" by claiming to be a police officer (which he is) when he is only military reserves (which he also is, but he was active duty at the time of the offense....and the court visits)

I'm game! Sounds like a fun swap, I didn't join in the one on BC though, so will have to have rules and guidelines set out

on a positive note....the last time we had to go back to GA for that #@$ ticket, they gave us the wrong date to appear at the probation office (yes, they made him come BACK from TEXAS to GA to meet his PO, but they wouldn't see us on the date we were given, we had to wait and come back the next day, so we spent the day at Stone Mountain and then the Aquarium. I hadn't been there since I was a child, and although we were thoroughly disappointed at the commercialization that has taken place over the preservation of history, we had a good time anyway. We hiked up to the top of the mountain, no small feat at 1.3 miles of granite uphill, but it was a unique and fun way for us to spend some time together.

I digress....I'm searching through patterns that could be done fairly simply but have potential for all sorts of interpretations. After I get the last side of border up on this top i'm working on, I'll get more focused on this, as I'd like to have it ready to be fully posted to begin once the retreat has taken place.

I'm hoping we can get enough people to participate to where each person will end up with enough blocks to make a finished project. Nothing would be more irritating than for us to do a swap and each end up with not enough pieces in the end to make something really fun out of it. :)

hehe to be honest I was so focused on the family heritage challenge this completely slipped my mind...when I get back later today I'll see what I can come up with. My "to do" list suddenly got alot larger so I'm trying to get as much out of the way this week as possible.

Man do I know about those "to do" lists!!!  Just found out the antique baby quilt I'm supposed to be repairing is needed by March 18!!!  OOOOOPPPS!  Not worried tho' - the family wants this 50+ year old baby quilt repaired so the new baby can use it - the new baby is the great-great grandchild of the lady who made the quilt.  I'll repair it, but I'm going to tell the family they'd better not plan on using the quilt.  It's pretty, but very fragile.  Going to suggest that they have the new baby's picture taken with the blanket, then just drape it over a rocker, or something like that.  It simply won't stand up to much more washing, even very gentle hand-washing.  And besides this, I have mending to do, my Family Heritage Challenge block to do - have the pattern picked - just need to figure out which fabric to use.  And I have my Sweet Child blocks for March to do yet, as well as finish putting together the February top and get it mailed to Sandy for quilting!

I have a pretty full plate (or is it platter!) also. Between a new job, casses, and teaching my lovely young ladies to piece a quilt, oh, and let's not forget the dogs and 2+ hours commute every day (yes, that's 7 days a week!!), my time is eaten up.

Maybe I can join in by the fall :)
