    Yeah, I've totally given up on trying to get the elves to come back and help. I think it's cause I can't get the gremlins to leave.

    I fired my elves because all they wanted to do was sit around and eat candy canes all day, and they messed up my sewing room!

    I think my cat Zipper has them cornered under my sewing table. He refuses to come out even with the promise of treats.

    I think this is when they get their vacations. To get all rested and refreshed before all us last minute quilters scurry to do our Christmas gifts......

    My elves stayed at my old house in Texas. I left them my new address in Oregon. Maybe they are traveling by night? Hope they get here soon. Left a thread trail in the hotels we stayed at during the move.

    I hope they arrive soon. They can help finish with the unpacking and hauling boxes of to the recyclers.

    I need to hire a few to help with the garage cleaning. It's either clean or another vehicle payment for a smaller truck so everything will fit inside....LOL

    They were here alright, but all they did was hide some things I thought were in plain sight

    I just saw my sewing room elf take off with my laundry knome...they're in cahoots and I don't think they're coming back.

    Some people are like Slinkies - not really good for anything, but you still can't help but chuckle when you see one tumble down the stairs.

    I believe they are all very busy sitting on shelves.
    I promise not to buy any more fabric until I see something I really like. Or it's on sale. Or I think it might match something.

    I'll add that all the good fairies and elves are hiding out until the good times roll in again. The gremlins are hoping we never find them in their disguise as politicians.
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    I am not sure if mine made the move with me or not, but I think some of the messier ones did. In fact now that I think about it, all the ones at the old house did was mess things up and hide things from me, and now I think they have switched the boxes that I packed things in as I can't find anything and I know I packed it this or that box! Don't know if I will ever get it all organized or not, and the room I claimed for a sewing room has shrunk to an unbelievably small size all of a sudden. I don't understand why. There was plenty of room when I started moving, and now I am scrambling for space, don't know where I am going to put it all! I just don't understand how these things happen!

    I had a very helpful elf last weekend. I moved 2 weeks ago. DD elf was here Sat. to help unpack and organize stash and books/magazines--still have to unpack and organize all the notions/rest of the stuff but my elf gave me a big start.

    OOOh,
    I know where they are.

    They all moved into my house,
    they sit all day and watch TV,

    and I cannot get them to do a darn thing.

    Just totally useless.

    MaryMo, maybe soon I'll learn how to do the "quote" thing, but in the meantime, I loved your statement, and think it should be put on "utube"--so very appropriate right now.....Love it.

    I'm afraid my sewing room elves are full of mischief and no matter how carefully I try to keep projects together, they manage to mess things up.

    Our kids and our 2 granddaughters just moved into their own house. I get to turn the nursery back into a sewing room! They have been with us since April, so I miss have the girls here, but I love having my house back! I really need those elves to come and help me.

    I saw my elves down by the beach one day last week. They were out in a sailboat fishing. They waved at me. I wonder, was that a "good bye" wave? Or an "I'll see you later" wave? Or, and this is what I thought, was it a "stuff it in yer nose" wave? They hid some really important sewing items on their way out the door. I hope they enjoy themselves. NOT!!
