You made a great trade. Your work on the quilt is beautiful.
Deanna I just looked at your quilt and it looks great!. You did a fantastic job on it and that was a great trade. Hugs /Lillian
THANKS. ITS ACTUALLY A LARGE WALL HANGING FOR HER ROOM
You got a REALLY good deal!!! My sister had to pay $1,500 for one full grown tree!!!
ooooh...He was cutting my trees from asplandh and i just happened to ask if he knew anyone that cut trees...he did it on the side...
Well done Deanna. The quilt has turned out beautifully. We've just had massive storms up here in Newcastle and the Tree loppers are in great demand! It was a great barter - but I think you got the better deal. Love Chris
The wallhanging looks fantastic and I think it was a great deal. It would be more likely $5000 to have the trees cut down here -including them being insured etc.
oooh...that is awful highway robbery....where are you living?
Marianne lives in Melbourne, Victoria Deanna. She is a lovely woman. I've met her! Love Chris
Beautiful job and a great deal as well.
Well done, bartering where both feel they had the best of the deal is the way to go!!
I think more of the worl needs to barter.
Great bartering deal!!!! I think made out best on this swap - good for you!! Lovely quilt, I'm sure his mother will be quite surprised and touched by your efforts in her honor.
Thanks and I hope so.
Wow! It is great! You must be pleased.
I am pleased with not having to pay money out. my time doesn't really cost me that much...I enjoy doing crafts. I kept worrying that 1 tree would fall on the house while my grand daughter was here.
You did a lovely job on the quilt. That was a lot of quilting. I'd say you both got good deals. Good that everyone is happy! My sister just paid $4000 to have a huge oak tree taken down close to their house and the guy got to keep the wood.
Owwww. i actually asked the secretary at our church if she knew of anyone that needed wood. one of the guys came out and actually cleaned up the wooded area in the corner pof our property. there were a few smaller trees down. He then helped cut, load. rake, burn. and clean up the area after they were done. struck a GREAT DEAL there...free labor.
Great job. A very good swap Thanks for sharing
a great swap...i think i came out ahead. those were some very big bad trees.
You did a beautiful job.
Great job...and great deal for both of you! Did you quilt this on a long arm or ??
I haven't used my long arm for a couple of years. my stitch regulator is off. my friend had to come over and get it realigned for me...and help fix my boo-boos
Good deal and a lovely quilt. Everybody is happy.
I sure am.
It is a great day for you and for him. You did a beautiful job and he has an extra special gift for his mom. I think it is a very good deal for you both.
It's awesome! Hey, if everybody is happy it's a GREAT deal for you both.
I soooo agree. we had an emergency come up and couldn't afford to have to pay out right this minute.
good deal and good job by both!
Beautiful quilt. I think that he is the lucky one. His mum is going to be delighted
Its really a large wall hanging. I hope she does. the man must care extremely a lot for her. i would be shocked to get something from my son like this.
You both were winners in this business transaction. His mother will be very happy to receive it. Marian
I totally agree on the winning part.
What a great deal for you. The photo quilt you made is lovely. I know his Mother will enjoy it.
I hope so...reason why i don't do this for a buisiness..i stress at too much...hehe
