    THANK YOU Wanda!!!!!!!!

    We were RAK'd by wanda lou. I received a cute card and note pad/calendar
    combo, and my furkids received a homemade mouse catnip toy.

    They ALL (4) got in the act of playing with it starting with the older timer
    Bandie, but it was Gizmo who took it to the limits and was getting very
    wild in his play.

    Now all four of them are zonked out on the bed, and the toy lays on
    the floor slobbery wet (yuck).

    Thanks again Wanda love it all.

    i have a question, how many of you like & use the ponytail holders for your bobbins? i saw on a thread that some didnt like them because it prevented them from seeing the thread colors. i am not sure how that happens because the plastic bobbins are see through and the metal ones have holes in them so you can see the thread plus you can always just move the elastic down just a bit to see your thread.

    i love them and it has made a world of difference in preventing me from having a bobbin thread tangle monster mess. they are very economical and so easy to use. in my mind, what's not to like but i know as many different quilters as there are, there is at least that many different opinions.

    Hearing happens when the ears and the brain team up, but listening happens with the ears of the heart.

    I collect Angels, enjoy reading Cozies, ( light mysteries especially about quilting and other crafts)...

    I use them ALL the time.

    In fact I buy the small ones (like from WalMart) to use on
    my spools of thread embroidery and regular. I go to Family
    Dollar and buy packs that have about 1000 mini size that I
    use for the bobbins (they fit better).

    And MANY people who have either been RAK'd or a swap
    partner of mine have been getting these in their packages.

    When doing FSL (free standing lace) to get the "best" look
    you run the bobbin thread the same as the top thread, so
    I put the same color wrap on both the spool and bobbin (in the
    same color family as the thread) so that I can "grab" the right
    bobbins when changing colors.

    That is just something I find works for me.

    But yes I LOVE the pony tail holders which I lovingly call
    bobbin wraps.

    LOL

    Is anyone else having issues with uploading pictures?

    ALL of my icons are greyed out "size" "font" color"
    etc.

    I have double checked all my settings and nothing
    has changed there.

    Even restarted my computer 4 times (for various
    other reasons).

    Oh well not even the "smiley's" are working.

    A while ago someone sent me some tiny terry pony tail holders and (this was such a blond moment) I thought, now how did she know I wear my hair in braids these days? DUH. Well, they're now going on bobbins. Love them!

    And yes, Louise, the board has been a little flakey today. Maybe too much traffic on this chilly Sunday afternoon.

    I've been spending (too much) time sorting through my bookmarks. What a bunch of wonderful stuff I've found. I've been thinking of putting all the pdfs for patterns onto a disk once I've gotten them all organized - anyone else do this? If so, would anyone eventually like a copy?
