    Oh no I would never throw it away, don't worry about that. Miss Brat sticky rolls everything she sends to me and it's fine. Sorry to say I've had a couple of "experiences" with the Secret Pal swaps that I was miserable for about 4 days. I try to be aware if they have kitties, so I can open very carefully and slowly. Never never never throw!!!! You make way to awesome of "stuff", I want it. In advance thank you for the sticky rolling and being aware, lots don't want to mess with it. I say I have allergies but sometimes it gets overlooked and that's okay, hostesses have enough stuff to fret about they don't need that too. I figure it's at my own risk, I certainly keep signing up for things

    Nancia I figure with so much hair rolling around the baseboards no one will notice if you shave your legs or not you can just say oh those darn cats! and I thought those were chaps you were wearing the furry wild wooly ones I now realize if I had my glasses on I would haven seen you just velcroed your cats to your pant legs.

    Vanogay can you please respond to Marybeth's PM she is worried she has sent you two packages of fabric now that she has something wrong so check your PM's por favor!

    Ok last but not least I had a nap, 20 minutes well worth it. wish it was longer but the upside is tomorrow is a grand day for napping. I am going to work on binding in clinic and then come home and nap with my new bound quilt! pics forth coming. I have been super at not signing up for anything extra right now. I have watch guards keeping me from putting my name to another project. And I am making grand progress on big things so maybe a little tiny restraint for me is a good thing. til next month. and Jaba if I worked at your speed I would sign up for each thing and go back and sign up for one more. just to keep partially busy. Ladies she is like lightening in the sewing room. ZOOM ZOOM ZOOM.

    i have some weird allergies, a couple are life threatening, but nothing i'm deathly allergic to would show up in a swap. ok, someone might include candy or something with tree nuts in it and that would be a problem. but i know enough to not eat cookies or candy until one of my food tasters tries it first. that's why i married and had kids, lolol. anyway, i take responsibility for my allergies, just as you do, jaba. but that doesn't mean i can't use a little help now and then. i try to be respectful. that's one reason i usually don't include candy, etc in swap packs. usually just fabric or something i've made, like a pincushion. it's not going to be much fun if we start killing each other off. i once jokingly told my dr i was going to the mall to get a mrs fields' chocolate chip pecan cookie and end it all. ( he said that wasn't funny.) sometimes the truth isn't. anyway, it's good to know if your swap friends have allergies so you can at the least limit their exposure to the allergens. isn't that what friends try to do?

    just for the record, miss brat, i have about 6 hairs on each leg. the others all migrated to my face. about that time my tush started melting into my thighs and my face is truly just melting. i have an extra chin if anyone needs one. i used to say i didn't want to be like those crabby old women who are always frowning. how was i to know that's what happens during the hot flashes. your face starts melting, and your boobs, and your stomach, and i know i mentioned my derrierre. honey, i am walking proof that gravity is alive and well! it's not just annoying. it's the LAW!

    Walnuts big time allergy here. One time we went to dinner at my neighbors house. It was our first time over there and she made this amazing beautiful dinner. They had this killer backyard landscaped gorgeous she put out these grand hanging lanterns, floral arrangements in several places and it was like martha stewarts best homes thing. So we sit to eat and she begins to tell us how they have a Walnut orchard. Oh how lovely. The salad had walnut oil on it, the meat walnuts mixed into it, the appetiser had cheese walnut roll thing, and dessert ..walnuts. The only dish without walnuts was an black olive garlic dip I had brought. Yum what a lovely dinner that was. I bet she never used walnuts in all her dishes again for guests without asking. I was embarassed to say something not wanting to hurt her feelings but I wasnt going to die for one meal either. Here I also have testers and I use pecans in everything walnuts are called for. works.

    I did use a walnut shell for an ornament however. made a tiny mouse head out of felt had him sleeping under a blanket with a curled up tail (pipecleaner) sticking out on one end and a little pipe cleaner hand hanging over the side. it was pretty dared cute. I dont think my hands and eyes are so good to work on things that tiny anymore but I think if they were those would sell super fast at craft faires in the holiday times. Eat your heart out martha. I am just as creative as HER TEAM is. wonder if that woman actually created anything that someone didnt design for her?

    last saw Barbara Walters on tv the other day. She is in her 80's. Ok I think I have more wrinkles than she does and I am 51. sheesh! Nancia I think i more closely resemble that cartoon lady maude? the one on the cards where her chest is about belly level and she has grand arm WINGS.. that is me. flappy old turkey skin there. I am fairly slim up on top but boy wings haunt me I think they could be lethal weapons if needed!

    Thanks for such a great start on the day ladies. I didn't need the allergies to turn into gravity Everything around here is in a downward slide. Just thinking if I could have an escalator installed in my house I could hang the extra on it and maybe it would just pull it on up for me. What a novel thought....I'm scaring myself.

    i just start at my toes and pull the skin up and up, like panty hose. and then when i get it all to the top of my head i put a thick rubber band around it and then a lovely bow. i've been talking out of my belly button for years, and i hear with my boobs. i look a little like a bloodhound. need to get my nipples pierced so it'll look like earrings. ah, the things i do for fashion!!! see, getting old is too fun!!

    OMG you girls keep me laughing. my daughter at the age of 4 which put me at 33 sat on the counter in the bathroom watching mommy put on her make up. she says will I have fur on my face when I grow up too? outta the mouth of babes. I have blonde hair and I guess the 'fur' was highlighted by the morning sun and well I have shaved my face since then. lol. secrets we keep from our dh. hey baby can i borrow your shaving cream? uh no. God help me coming up with excuses when I nick my chin trying to get that goat hairout. ok what is it with one or two really long hairs? does everyone get those or is it just nanny goat me? right on the tip of my chin. cant see it til I turn sideways in the light then that blonde crud just BLINGS right out. and your right the older you get less leg hair to worry about and more facial trouble. I havent had arm hair in years. sometimes growing older has a few benefits not too many mind you but some. like not caring about saying hey gotta go shave my face brb. lol.

    Vanogay mail away! Anastasia I hope your scraping along there in the new ride. I had a grand am. loved loved loved that car. talk about low to the ground. wonder could I get out of that now? I ride in a big ford truck. I have this foot stool I use to get in, dh drilled a hole in the top I have curl sheen ribbon pulled through it so when I am in I just reel it in with me. lol pretty goofy but I cant just stand there and stare at the truck otherwise. its not on high lifters. I am 5'3. everything is high. like hello there up there? help can you just shove from behind and maybe i can do it? oh heck no.

    i'm beginning to pray for all-over baldness. truly, the only "problem" hair is on my face. i think that chin dagger is a hallmark of having reached maturity. when i was younger it was a big, red, glowing pimple that shouted to the world "Hey, look at me! I have my period!" then as the periods showed up with less and less frequency, a LONG, COARSE and very DARK bayonet grew on the point of my chinny chin chin. blame it on the 3 little pigs! they drew attention to it.-- thank goodness wigs are so realistic now, who'll know? then again, the female pattern baldness has hit and my hair (formerly on top of my head) has now turned whiter and less obvious and my hairline gets drawn in every morning with crayola markers. fortunately, my eyebrows resemble 3 sleeping fuzzy caterpilars ( it's going to be a very cold, long winter). at least my nose hasn't grown too large for my face yet, perhaps because with 3 chins my face is soooo much bigger than ever ( except that 2 weeks i had a face resembling a red basketball inflamed with poison ivy that swelled and immobilized all my features. yay me! how could i know my immunity had worn off?) my gmother once looked me over, as opposed to overlooking me, and declared i wasn't beautiful. or even pretty, but i did have a clean look. figured if i got my face dirty i was doomed to a life of ugly. the payback is i look a great deal like her as i get old-er. still feels like i'm the one suffering. i learned all my backstabbing and tact from her. i do have pretty toes. they make a lovely pattern of straight and crooked. i remember trying to cut dgm's rhino tusk toenails and can muster only profound gratefulness that the toe fungus i have makes the nails soft enough to peel. my ankles and feet now are very patriotic-- white fungal nails, red athlete's foot, and blue varicose veins. i'm a yankee doodle dandy! i have developed a strange finger arthritis. my thumbs are curling in and the tallest, longest, most readily noticed center finger has developed a stiffness that makes it resistant to joining the other fingers in a fist. yes, double eagles! is it any wonder i prefer staying home and quilting? on the positive side i laugh alot and loudly so we can all enjoy the joke, and i do love jokes. thank you, ditter! those maxine cartoons really explain aging accurately and still give me a giggle! thank goodness.

    I on the other hand am tall and stately. Nicely honed and well proportioned. Good perky boobs and a small rounded tush. Beautiful straight teeth and a smile to warm the cockles of your heart. Mirror, mirror on the wall, who's lying in front of ya'll? Now pardon me whilst I go throw up.

    Yikes, I can't wait for all this glorious reallocating of the hair, lol. I have the longest hair on my arms. Luckily I'm the only one who notices it. I use an epilator on my legs, because I'm too cheap to go pay someone to wax them. Yes, it's a little painful, but it's worth it. I used to have those caterpillar eyebrows too, but at 16 or 17 some good friends held me down (with permission) and did away with them. I plucked faithfully until they stopped growing a good number of years ago. I was glad to see them go. My mom's going to be 67 next month, and as far as I know hasn't started with the facial hair yet, and Gramma never did either. I'm hoping that's a sign of things to come, or better yet not come, for me!

    That's not at all fair DustysMom - everyone should have a generous supply of facial hair - moustache, chin, ears, wherever. You're right, not as much arm hair anymore, but always have a profusion of leg hair when it's time to go to the podiatrist or orthopedic surgeon - never fails there.

    LMAO you guys... Vanogay I could tell from here you were tall stately and unaging as ever. How does she do it? I think its oil of olay! or is it vasoline on the mirror AGAIN? I know I was young and pretty once. I had the boys chasing me like I was the next best thing. Now glad there is no chasing (who the heck has energy for that) and it is so not the point of life. I think pretty comes from the inside out. lots of people who are outside pretty and mean as a crocodile. trust them like ...oh never. My father did the same thing Nancia in his own "nice" way. My oldest sister was striking! my next was a classic beauty and me I was cute. I grew up wishing i was a classic beauty but not was the case. Why on earth do people do that to their children or people they love? why not say your all beautiful? labels suck.

    I think the truth is most of us if we look back at us say at 16 or 20 or even 30 think wow I wasn't so bad looking. so I say celebrate it. I am kinda majorly aged since last year but I know hey I had my day. Even at forty I still wore a corsette shirt and had a chest to rival the best and small waste and well looked pretty darned good. I am going to hit my dh computer. I had him put all my pics on a disk for the children to have. me growing up. from baby to now. I was the type who threw away my pics. all in all maybe 40 pictures of me. I always hate how I looked. Oh by was I dumb. lol beats the cartoon maude I am now by oh 10 miles. Will post and share the difference for you all. drink something strong when you look ok?

    ok here is a random thought which is so out there for me right, random thoughts? really??

    what do you sing in the shower? I know you do. I do when no one is listening (ok who would be listening to me in the shower??? NOBODY). what do you think I sing? what is your song you sing most often?

    ok for me.. drum roll.. its AMAZING GRACE.. always the same song been the same song for years.. never ever sing that anywhere else... but sure think of it when I am showering. hope there is no symbolism in that! like if you sing this song it means.. probably someone did a study. I just dont want to know what it means like when you dream a gurilla is chasing you on a train and your eating croissants and the dog chatting with you.. you know like that. I dont want to analyse that. I want to just .. wonder what i ate the night before that made me dream that goofy stuff. the wondering is fun.. so no one but Nancia and I sing in the shower? nobody? wow.. what a conservative shy bunch we have here. NOT> come on guys...

    You guys can have all the singing you want and you'll have to sing for me too! I don't ever remember singing in the shower, I always think of what I have to do next or what I hope to get done. Boring I know, just like going to sleep at night, I should have done this or that or I have to remember to do this tomorrow. Had a call from a lady this week and she forgot about a baby shower that she wanted me to make a quilt for. Got the fabric yesterday and have been sewing on it all day, it's on the long arm ready to quilt tomorrow, binding is ready to sew on so I can get it done. Have 2 days, its got to be in the mail on Monday to get to her by Friday. I'm tired! But tomorrow night I can sit and hand sew the binding, probably Sunday too but think it will be on time.

    Acoustically, the shower is the BEST place to sing! There've been entire albums where all of the vocals were recorded in a makeshift booth in someone's shower stall.

    I rock out to Evanescence, or the Beatles... depends on my mood. Sometimes it's country music, but not very often.

    i think this is a good place to make the notation that brat and i do not sing in the shower together, that is to say, when we're in the shower we sing, but not when we're in the shower together, um , i mean, we don't sing together when we're in the shower. but she sings and then i sing, when we're in the all-together, but not together, in the shower, not .... oh, heck. we just like to sing.

    Nancia thy protest too much my dear lol.. you know they will never believe us now don't you? sigh. the secret is out. ok ok ok it goes like this, we have two margaritas while enjoying our quilt calendars with burritos and oh yes men on them and then we call each other as we live in two different states and jump in the shower at the same time and seranade each other.. yeah thats the ticket. probably not but this showering together thing is getting harder and harder with all those miles between us. guess it will never be. a lost hope Nancia a lost hope.

    Morning ya all. Another gorgeous day in paradise here, maybe a drizzle but other than that smooth sailing. we are going to be warming up for the week today 50 but by Wed 58 that is toasty and almost sit in the sun weather. wish I could do that sometimes. I miss it. not tanning just sitting there for 20 minutes and feeling it warm your skin a bit. can't because of medications sun is no good. darn it. so someone somewhere will you sit outside and warm up for me please? its a balmy 33 right now and I am about to brave the weather in two minutes and head to clinic. I hope everyone of you has a good day and I will be back later to enjoy the chat.

    It is getting closer to shipping time. :-) I have mine all packaged up, addressed and just waiting for the go-ahead to mail. Have to say in regards to singing in the shower, I am also one of the 'never did that' ones. Never wanted to frighten the family if they might have heard caterwauling coming from the bathroom. I do have to say though that as I get older and winters seem longer, it is harder and harder to turn off the hot water and get out.
    She who dies with the most fabric, didn't sew fast enough!

    Maybe misslov2sew can post a pic for us? signal reception is horrible in some places. so much for the new highspeed internet right? mine is good then rotten then gone then great but wait gone again.. hear you completely. hope you can at least enjoy reading with us.

    Sandy your supposed to sing and shower AFTER everyone is gone from the house then its belt it out baby! try it its so fun and heck if they come in girl just sing louder. scare the heck out them. come like like nothing ever happened and play dumb if they look at you wonky. being wonky is one of lifes simple pleasures. You only live once. Give it what you have while you can.
