    Very cute!!
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    YAY!!!
    Three points:
    Point One: If you are a Christian, you know this is wrong...Matthew 24:36
    "No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.


    Point Two: erm...Australia is still here.

    Point Three: The Mayan calendar didn't take into account Leap year!

    From the artist formerly known as Missus Fear...Hi, my name is Tracy and I am a hobbyaholic.

    Personally, I think the Mayans just got tired and quit calculating their calendar at that point.

    It's a puzzler for sure. All any experts can agree on is it is a start of a new earth cycle.
    Got fabric?

    I am POINT ONE and sorry, Ladies, if it is God's Day, my fabric is going with me! My Mom and I were talking about today yesterday. And it is all just old old old old stories. She told me about when she was young and the world was going to end, people got rid of their homes, gave away their money, land, animals, everything, went and sat on the top of a hill! And wait! She's 96......they're still waiting. Yes, Matthew 24:36, but read on to the end of Chapter 24. Oooohhhh!!!!!!!Edie

    I figure that the Mayans made a perpetual calender. They had the date 12/21/12 as the last day of the calendar and you just restated at the beginning again. Sometimes the simplest explaination is the right one.

    Tartan, we need more people like you to slice through the hysteria and come up with something everyone can understand.

    It isn't going to happen because there is a LOT more to happen on earth in Bible Prophecy in the Book of Revelation. God is always 100% right!!

    If the end was near why are we rushing around finishing quilts, present getting shopping in, cleaning the house. Forget it all the world will end before Christmas. Ha.
    Finished is better than a UFO

    Just saw a cartoon that shows two Mayans, one says the tequila is ready and asks if the other one wants some.
    The second one says okay, I'm working on this calendar but I guess it won't be the end of the world if I don't
    finish it. LOL.
    Sew Tracy got it right too.
    Everyone have a Merry Christmas.
