    Look at what my son made for my birthday!

    I asked him if he could make me a thread cone holder. He showed up this morning with a disgruntled thread server! OK, you gals, I need to name her! Any suggestions?

    Don't know about a name. Your Son is very creative and has a great imagination. He did a great job on it.

    She looks like a mean, old nanny! LOL! Paul has a real sense of humor and is very good with his hands. He had a lot of fun making it.

    She is way to cute. She'll put a smile of your face every time you use her.

    Your son must be an artist. What an imagination! I bet he could sell those by the dozens.

    What a great sense of humour your son has! I agree with Crqltr - he needs to make these for a quilt show, because I'd be first in line to buy one.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    That's what I told him. He's been using a welder that belongs to a lady he did some work for. It belonged to her husband, but he had a heart attack and died a couple of years ago, so she has let him use it. However, she is getting married and moving to Odessa in September, so she's taking the welder with her since her new husband is interested in welding. We may have to look for a welder for him. He was laid off from his job and hasn't been able to find one with good benefits. His wife is diabetic and he has 2 girls in college. He is very talented and has a lot of applications in, but you know how the economy is right now. Hope he finds something soon. Meantime, he's working odd jobs, installing cabinets, putting in tile, building fences, plumbing and electrical work.

    Your son is super talented!!! When I look at your thread holder I don't see a girl, I see a guy - like a concierge. Maybe Conrad or Connie?

    What a great gift from your son. I am sure that you will cherish it always. My first thought of a name was Gussie. She is disgruntled or disgusted so I came up with Gussie.

    She resembles Aunt Della...especially the disgruntled part. Aunt Della was my grandfather's sister...she lived to 94.

    Tell son that he did a great job.

    I'm sorry, but when I look at her the first thing that came to mind was "Fancy Pants". I guess by the way she stands w/hands on her hips and all. It is very cute and your son did a great job.
