    I've been playing with pieces that are sewn on top of the background and it looks nice with a frayed edge...that's why I want to cut with the pinked edge...

    As often as we buy things, I went for the newest with the largest screen, so have a Fire 8.9. Hopefully we will have it for a long while. DH is doing more online searching already. There's so much farm info out there for him to look at and at the touch of a finger.

    I have a tablet that I just play games on but it doesn't have enough space.. I want something that I can download on and then use it without the internet...I think you can do that on the Kindle..I've been checking out the Fire 8.9 and it's almost the same size as the tablet...looks like I'll be getting the Kindle for xmas

    Anne, I've never used a pinking blade but when I use my pinking shears I aim right down the middle of the line I've drawn. Not sure how I'd do that with a blade but Carrie's suggestion sounds right.

    I have one of the first Kindles that came out. Very basic but I hope it lasts; I love having the keyboard instead of a pull down. When this one goes, I'll probably go with the Fire and adjust. I just use mine to read free books, pics show up small and in black & white so I don't download quilt mags/books. Do I sound like June Cleaver? Still living in a black & white world LOL but I don't wear pearls.

    I'm just going to have to practice with some scraps....my concern is sewing using a guide and the points of the edges butting up against it...practice, practice, practice...

    I bought the 7 1/2" Kindle Fire when the "fire" first came out a few years ago. I really love it! I use it mainly for reading books. I download them from my local library, and from Amazon. Lots of free books out there! I really don't use it to its full potential. I do use it for internet when we are traveling and I don't have my laptop set up. I put photos of my grandkids and have an album for my quilts, when I want to show them to people.

    I went out yesterday & today looking for the 8.9" kindle and none of the stores I shopped had them in stock...I need to actually see & hold it before I invest in one...I stopped at Hobby Lobby to check out their fabrics and their selections were on the slim pickins side..not much of a selection..it's a brand new store...maybe they didn't have all the stock displayed..
    I'm debating whether I should put an artificial Christmas tree on the front porch while we're away...My neighbors said they would watch it for us......It was a $5 garage sale find... still thinking on it....I'm not concerned if someone takes it...
    Jeanie, I might be starting the Grand Illusion on a small scale..might, might, might...when I get home...I downloaded all the info so far...
    That's it for tonite...Later Guys, Anne

    QNS, please take care of yourself! Make sure after you get your canning done you elevate that leg; try to take some breaks while canning so you're not on that leg too long. Yesterday at work we had 3 patients that had fallen over the week-end and were pretty banged up. I think maybe we're all a little distracted this time of year and falls increase.

    ONE MORE WORK DAY!!!!!! Yay! Yesterday was brutally busy because the office was closed from Wed thru Sunday because of Thanksgiving. Saw twice as many patients and answered twice as many phone calls. But I kept telling myself "one more, one more" and got thru it with a smile. When I got home I threw my scrubs in the laundry; MrJanRn laughed and asked why I didn't just throw them out! Our office Christmas party is tonight so next week I'll tell them I'm done after my last scheduled day Dec. 22. Can't wait. Found out today that my sister is also retiring at the end of the year. She's been an art professor at a major university for the past 35 years. She plans on continuing to exhibit nationally & internationally and is looking forward to doing art for herself, not teaching students.

    Take care everyone, no more accidents please. We're getting freezing rain & freezing fog but it's supposed to end soon.

    Oh I do love the Grands, but did they have to give me the triple whammy of coughing, vomiting, and diarrhea! Every joint in the body hurts.

    Take care QNS....ouch.

    What a cutie! Kids love gadgets, don't they? Love that he's helping Grandma.

    OK hope you're recovering from your "triple header"; we haven't seen much flu or stomach flu around here yet. Usually hits at Christmas.

    Had our office Christmas Party last night. I had the best Osso Bucco over creamy risotto. OMG the portion was so huge I brought half home with me. My elastic waist pants are too tight today!! Now does anyone have a good recipe for it? It was made with pork shanks (which I don't know what they are) and was falling apart-didn't even need a knife. I'd love to make it if anyone knows how.

    I have a wonderful recipe from the Silver Palate Cookbook...the dish is generally made with Veal Shanks...The shanks come from the lower leg of the calf between the knee & ankle...the "shin bone" is part of that area..have you ever seen soup meat with the little round bone in the middle? the shank is the section that isn't sliced..OK, the shank isn't considered above the knee is it? I'm not sure about that.

    "triple whammy of coughing, vomiting, and diarrhea! Every joint in the body hurts. " Sorry OK, hope things start looking up for you and your grands.

    I think, Honchey, you are right. From the knee down to the hoof on veal or pork is called a 'shank'. JanRN, a good cook book shows the cuts of meat with beef or hog.

    Now, JanRN, you will have to plan your 'retirement free time' to see if you have any spare time at all.

    Did a bit of quilting shopping today...picked out yellows to make a 'sunshine' quilt....its going to be needed this winter.

    Jan, I'll email the recipe to you after I get home this weekend...

    Today was such a crazy day for me..the community intranet had a villager selling a white wicker bedroom set & a TV cart..I got it for $100...here's a couple of photos.. a bedframe & mattress came with it but I didn't need it..We had to move it today!!! I can't believe it..our neighbor helped us out with using his pick up truck to move it all.....

    I added more gels to the door window...

    Anne, I'd appreciate the recipe. I Googled it and got too many options. Nice bedroom set--all for $100 is a good buy. The girls at my office are hooked on those gel decorations. We have the sliding windows dividing sections of the office. They try to out do one another with their decorating.

    Qns, I'm so looking forward to "my time" even tho I've only worked one day per week for awhile. This is the first year in a long time that I'm not curled up in a fetal position with seasonal depression by now. I think it's because I'm satisfied with my decision, not second guessing myself like I did before. Keep your fingers crossed for me that this state of mind continues.

    Finally got some sewing done today. Started quilting the bedrunner for the B&B. I'm still not sure she'll like the batiks--maybe too modern, not rustic enough. (Here I go second guessing myself LOL). Hope to have a pic for you soon.

    Anne, what a buy you found; perfect bedroom suite! I would like the recipe, too, if you could email me also, thank you.

    JeanieG, when I got my email from Laura, she must have been rushed in time; very short, nice and direct. She will let me know when the autographed copy is available for purchase.

    Good luck to you, JanRN. My dh can think of more things for me to do and give me 'heck' about the rest of it. Now that he drives me everywhere, it seems I cannot escape him at all...my only choice is to let him sound off until he runs out of steam. If I say anything, he takes a breathe and starts over...Lord, help me! And firmly shut my mouth!
    I have more friends than he does, I went more places than he does, etc., and I made many a trip, tried as an old dog, to do his biding and think of him first. When he is good, he is good, but when he is bad, its all bad...almost abusive in words...and then says he is not abusive...as if I have 'earned' the lecture by caring for him.

    No sunshine today, and I could sure use some sunlight today! May it get better. May all of you have a good day!

    I'm listening and hearing your comments on RMr's. Know my DH would benefit as he works so hard, but once he finished with the "I want to" list he'd be underfoot as well. Ah the dilemma...

    Where are you going to put the wwicker pieces,H? I'm thinking accent tables in a sunny room would be perfect using batiks for fabric choices. I call this a major score! OK, must get some work done. Sun's shining..enjoy it��
