    LOL @ Barb. I tried to hold off until all of the packages arrived to open them, but my dinning room table nearly got lost! It makes a much bigger pile than I expected. Have fun.

    Okay sorry so late....not promising anything any more ......we have a winner for last weeks contest....congrats to nls Nancy...your prize will be in the mail soon...


    Just wanted to share my sad news of my kitty Oreo passed away on Friday. Early in the summer he started to throw up every time he ate...so the vet said give him wet food only. Oreo never really liked wet food but I tried to find one he liked, he would eat it a little then stop eating it. This went on for months...he lost a lot of weight.....finally I had the vet come and see him (we have a vet who makes house calls) she did some testing and Thursday we found out that he was in end stage of kidney failure......so we had to put him down. He was the sweetest thing. Very social, would talk to you when you came in the house, cuddly when I slept and even played with our dog Sophie. We left out of town on Friday so it really did not hit until Sunday when we came back home to no Oreo. He will be missed. I think our dog Sophie is sad too, she is not eating and just lays around. This had been a tough year. Oreo was 15 1/2 years old.

    Barb,
    I am so sorry for your loss! Hugs and prayers coming your way. I know how it feels as we lost one of our fur babies this summer. Domino was 12 and black and white. She was a stray cat that warmed our hearts and quickly became a member of the family. It is so hard when we lose one of our fur babies, my heart and prayers go out to you and your family.

    Thanks Carrot, Fraew and oneteappot.

    I know that a lot of us have lost loved ones (me included)in the last few months. So I felt kind of bad posting this. But I know that our fur babies are an important part of our lives.

    I am still kicking, too. I have been out of town for my Dad. They tried to do angioplasty in his right leg last week but couldn't. Doc said he may end up losing that leg. He has had so many heart surgeries that he has no useful arteries left in either leg. They did the right leg in June and it is doing good. May go ahead and do a replacement in that one before Christmas.

    Barb, I am so sorry for your loss. It really hard when we lose our fur babies.

    I am here as well - job hunting is discouraging - too many applicants and not enough jobs. I am getting really depressed. Been busy with the squad fundraisers and some table runners to be auctioned off for Cabaret Night. Fun but nothing that brings in dollars. .

    So....

    1) What is your favorite quilt pattern? Yikes. There are a lot but so far the Chiclets pattern, the Bento Box and the Mexican Star top the list.
    2) What quilt gadget that you can not live without???? A really good cutting board and a VERY sharp pair of scissors!.
    3) Best sewing advice...(I hope to learn a lot here) Buy the very best machine you can afford. My quilting improved dramatically when I got my BabyLock Quilter's Pro =- especially the FMQ.
    4) Favorite quilt site besides "the quilting board" I like the Crafty site - they have good tips and free patterns
    5) Name other crafts you do besides quilting....mostly home improvement stuff - I just redid my basement.

    Just FYI - since I have been doing a lot of applique with Wonder Under, I found that fabric pens in many colors make a nice addition to my tool set. You can add all kinds of fun designs, outlines, and embellishments.

    I will add pics to a new thread.
