This time of year is so fun. A busy time too, but fun. I wish everyone happy holidays and happy quilting too. I'm sure there are lots of gifts being quilted or sewn. I just finished my ornament swap. I was late because when the change took over, it dropped the front sheets with addresses and names so I had to find them. But they helped me. Thank you Brenda21.
I have figured out everything I need to on this board. I'm in and out.
I still have all 10 cats for anyone who followed

It was a lot of fun to make and I'm happy with how it turned out. I liked the fabric so well that I'm now making another quilt from a Jelly Roll from this same line
does anyone know where we could find a free teddy bear pattern. My stepmom, sisters and I do items for cancer, quilts, totes and now we want to do some stuffed bears. I have not been able to find a free pattern that is simple. Ideas?

I just noticed that some members are "Junior Member" and some are "Senior Member". I am a senior but don't have that designation on my ID. How do I get it? I am 70 years old and thoroughly enjoy this site. Anne
Does anyone want to do these menus & grocery list for me…. Just not feeling good at all today but this has to get done. Gotta get groceries tomorrow. Will be nonstop for the entire month of Dec. Yep, I'm stressing already and haven't even started. As organized as I try to stay, it doesn't help much. I am known as the walking calendar. If it's not on my to do list or my calendar, it doesn't exist. I think the list is a mile long and the calendar is jam packed EVERY day.

The irony is that she has always 'nagged' at me to not leave my purse in the
