Congrats to Renata :!: - you've found your FMQ groove - Thanks for sharing you success. It's sound like practice and music are key. Last week, I tried FMQ and turned out not too bad, but I had to keep my shoulders down and didn't think of playing music - I just sang out loud to myself - "I've got peace like a river...etc." Now I just have to practice more.
BTW - my singing is private - not on utube or anything. no one else would be blessed - I have a very shallow range and lots of gravel in my throat! :oops:

Now, I did say I thought I found my FMQ groove... my stitches are more regular, but I did not say anything about getting a pattern or meandering design to look good yet! :) Hopefully, that day will come too... In order not to find excuses for not practicing, I made up a stack of 10"x10" quilt sandwiches and keep them handy.

In the meantime, congrats to you in your success with FMQ and yes, practice, practice! We can do it! "I've got peace like a river...", eh? :D :D :D

Ooh, I'm a happy bunny - fun AND a prize! :)
Lorchen, I have emailed you then realised I hadn't put my forum name so I'm also known as Fiona! Put it down to excitement.... :)

Anyone have a favorite recipe for walnut cake? This is just too much to bear! With buttercream icing for Rosemary, if possible... :)

That walnut cake does sound tasty. I guess you can get a boy to do just about anything for food. I am very excited to see what prizes Lorchen has come up with.

I don't mind that I didn't win - I seem to have missed the beginning bit of this thread so I was unaware of there being prizes - but coffee and walnut cake, now that's a different matter! I suppose there was icing on it and everything? :D

I love, love, love all the beautiful pictures!

Please, everybody, don't forget to click on the picture of Rosemary's fabric so that you can see it much bigger. It's drop-dead gorgeous!

And now........ drum rolls...... Andy has been, rolled his eyes, mumbled something like 'You are always up to something, Mum', picked three pieces of paper out of the box, gobbled down a large piece of coffee and walnut cake, and vanished again. Here are the three names:

Please, send me a message through my profile page with your snail mail address, so that the three envelopes can be sent on their way. I hope you'll like your little treats. :)

Go to sleep, wake up and look how much there is to catch up on!

Rosemary, your thimbles are beautiful and I bet they are comfortable to wear--I would have never thought to make a thimble!

Lorchen, your granddaughter is so sweet but I see the spunk and have an inkling about where it comes from…

Rita, love your peonies and the story behind it. They do turn into monsters but they are such beauties for the ten days or so that they are in bloom. The yellow of yours is so beautiful!

Lois, I LOVE your avatar!!! And pink looks SOOO good on you!

Margo, what a lovely way to spend Mother's Day and the look of iced tea, scented gardenias, lace and scattergories (beautiful composition)… I wish I could have been there!
