    Hello everyone
    Hope all is well. I had a lovely weekend at a scrapbook crop. Have any of you go quilting for a whole weekend??? I have been scrapbooking for about 19 years and still love to do it. I have over 25 books completed plus I have made some for others as gifts. I will have a well documented family ...lol.

    So bad luck in the past few days.....first my dog Sophie was attacked yesterday by two large dogs one of them is a pit bull. Sophie is okay no puncture wounds. Acting very timid, hiding under the bed and won't come out. She is also limping. But she is okay. I did call the police and filled out a report. see what happens next.

    Also my husband was told on Friday that his department is considered surplus and will be losing his job. He has worked for the same company for 34 years. There is no pension just a 401K. He is still working right now until they close things down which we have no idea when that will be. He seems to think that another company will be buying out some of their contracts. That would be good. I keep you all updated.

    Just checking in. I have been incredibly tied up this last month so..... I have mailed out both the September & October packages today. so sorry to be late and this is my first time being so.

    I am assisting in the care of a very ill family member so I will be packaging up the rest of the birthday packages at my next break so I don't get so behind in the last few months.

    I hope all are okay and everyone whose birthday has passed did something wonderful to celebrate. Congratulations on the new grandbaby. To the October ladies whose birthday is coming up, I hope you also get to do something wonderful to celebrate.

    Barb I hope you husband lands well with his upcoming job change. Losing a job so near the end of the year can be twice as stressful. Poor Sophie I hope she gets better. That can be a traumatic experience.

    I received 3 packages today. Thank you NLS and KathyM. Great assortments. I wish I could decide what my next quilt will be. Thank you Jannie for the candy and fat quarter. I have been wanting to make some microwave bowl potholders and those big flowers will be perfect.

    Happy Birthday BENNDM. I will be mailing out your package on Monday. I got home last weekend to find out thay my beautiful Crystal kitty knocked down my board with all my cut squares. I picked them all up, but I still need to organize them back into their colors and plan on doing that when I get back home this weekend.

    Hope you have a great Birthday.

    Thanks for all the birthday wishes. I received a pkg from LetsQuilt yesterday. Thanks. I love the fall colors. I think I've been inspired to make a fall quilt. I'm going thru all my candy squares and pulling out the right colors.

    Today I received great assortments from JaniceMcC and CindyVP. Thanks a bunch for the candy. I received a candy pkg, patterns and quilt quotes from DaisyDew. I love the quotes. I also received candy, card and a mug mat from sewbizgirl. I have a paper towel under my water glass right now so your mat will be used immediately.

    Thanks everyone.

    Barbarakibler23 - Hope you had a great birthday. I have no willpower. I'm opening them as they come.
    Hope you have a good weekend camping. It's supposed to rain all weekend in Missouri. Have fun and stay safe.

    So sorry I haven't been on here lately, busy week. Havplenty I did recv your beautiful little package. Whether a package is late or on time, it's the thought that means so much to me. Mine for Oct was going out yesterday, but unfortunately I put them on the mailbox, and didn't notice it started to rain, so they got all wet. Will have to redo for tuesday. I think theres no mail monday.

    Barbara thank you for my prize it is very pretty,Thank you.
    I left last Thursday to go to Florida for a week with friends we drove 6.5 hours and Friday morning got a call from sister in missouri tat my father had taken a turn for the worst and we thought we were going to loose him,so called my Dear Husband he drove 1/2 way to meet my friends and me,then we turned around and drove 15 hours to the hospital where my Dad is and he's sitting up in bed doing better,but still very very ill.He is 81 lives alone so now he can be alone any more so tomorrow we have to tell him with the Doctor that he can't go home he has to go into Nursing home.
    He will not like it but he has to have 24 hour care,He is on Oxygen all the time,now his Kidneys are failing building up to much fluid and his Heart is to weak,so as the Doc put it his Heart and Kidneys are fighting with each other.
    Sorry for such a long post,just needed to vent.

    Oh I'm so sorry. What a no fun time. That happened to me last summer. I ended up taking care of my DFIL for a week before he passed. He was 94. I charish that I could be there but...it was difficult. You're in my prayers.
