    Loup, quiet? I think my internet was down again or I would drive you all nuts

    my house: sits on 146 acres surrounded by the national forest. Ok the 146 acres have 420 camp sites and two homes. Mine is one of those two. Lucky me. camping year round would lose it at my age real quick. My DH and I have four cats, I own two he has one and the other was gifted to us by my son who wanted me to take her for a bit til he could have her back 2.5 yrs ago. uh huh. My kids are grown and gone, I am home disabled so when I am not napping or gone for treatment I am sewing and thinking about cleaning. I get the surface stuff done daily. I get the real stuff done seriously once a month and half sorta every few days. NOT what they will remember me for how sparkly clean my home was. Decor: huh? huh? I have western pictures, paintings and photographs on my walls. also art work I had framed as the kids were growing and I fell in love with. Bright monkeys, water color trees, bird/beavers and while grown the kids love to come back and see them on the walls. Obviously well thought out matching decor. I have a mans den master bedroom bullets, guitars, knives and framed ugh bugs and football players. yippee. I have a sewing room with paintings we made and doll quilts on the walls. And a dining room table with a sewing machine and all my do it now work on it! so a very tidy designer friendly home. goodwill designers.

    did you get anything done today? I am caught up to this weeks clue in the mystery train. I will try to get a photo of my bunnies on here asap. my dq is finished. ... in my mind. now will I remember this? that is the mystery question.

    Well I imagine that just about everyone is colder than Arizona right now! Hehe, good clue!

    I am a retired government Employee who is having the time of her life! Been married to best friend for two years this December! He is so awesome, we have 3 cats two indoor and one fraidy cat who won't come in even when there is snow on the ground.

    I have two grown kids, 7 grand kids two are born to us, 2 are adopted, and 3 are inherited, the 3 inherited are teenagers! Wow teenagers are fun, and complex!

    I have a small business making fun recycled stuff, and Memory quilts. I always tell everyone I sew so I can see my grandkids! We live in the mountains in Southern California our house is a mountain cabin in natural wood and there is no decorating style except quilts every where... and in Hubby's office is a NFL shrine!

    I love to run and have been know to spend quite a bit of time doing it! You can either find me running, quilting/crafting or painting with my Hubby! (or fixing someones computer who thinks I still know what is going on with computers)

    Life is good!

    BTW... Who likes APPLES??? I am getting no answers here! maybe I will keep it and make another one! In Winter whites! Try keeping that clean!!!!
    Give a smile away today, someone you meet might need one!

    I love your fabric colors Marytl, you had me at apple however I thought cherry pie! yippee! then I said your right but not tomatos goof. When you look inside the pie that is cut its definetely apple for those who still cant see it. I would use that in a heartbeat. Surely no one else wants it send it to me send it to me! I will take one for the team. I will take two for the team as a matter of fact. Oh hell with it I will take them all for the team. I am that kinda gal.

    Well.. I finally made it to midnight made one error today.. not too bad. Was at least productive quite a bit today. lost count but did something like about 45 files. Not too bad for a newbie. I did manage to get my living and dining room clean this morning. I need to vacuum, and wipe down my bathroom.. then tomorrow will be focused on the kitchen of doom. And thursday morning I will probably work on my porch which is where I throw all things that don't need my attention right now. Like, yard tools, my bike, empty boxes, clothes to donate, etc. Mostly i just need to keep them in one corner so it's not so scary looking. I only care because i have a new person coming to thanksgiving this time and I want my family to scare her away, not my house.. haha. With it's gaping hole in the roof and being in the ghetto.. scary enough, doesn't need to come in thinking oh great it's a hoarder house.. hahaha.

    Okay so after finally catching up on the last 15 pages, I see that everyone is telling a little bit about themselves?
    Hubby and I ahve been marries 28 years. We have 2 beautiful daughter, one is married and we now have a handsomely/cute 19 mo GS. Our youngest daughter lives at home and I am her full time caregiver. (her web site is listed below my signature).

    We have lived all over the US and in Saigon, Vietnam as Baptist missionaries. (our girls were little when we went over)After being 'caught' and put under house arrest the Lord brought us safely back to the US.

    I used to quilt with my GM YEARS ago, then got into scrapbooking when the girls were younger, now I am back into quilting, more so than scrapbooking. I quilt for 'therapy'.

    I enjoy doing the different swaps on here as it givem me an opportunity to meet some really great people, learn differnt techniques and trade out some really fun quilting stuff.

    I have the material for my partners runner but won't be able to get started on it until after Thanksgiving.
    BTW: HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE!

    travelinggramma - You figured it out! EVERYONE is colder than me, even other parts of Arizona! It's still in the 60's during the daytime here! (And I'm wearing long sleeves... brr!)

    I didn't get very far with my runner last night. I had one of "those" sewing nights, where nothing was lining up right, and it was 'sew one, rip two'. So I finally (after cussing out the cat for watching me sew too closely) called it a night and put it all away. Unfortunately, it won't be until this weekend now before I can work on it again. For some strange reason, DH would be offended if I pulled out the machine after Thanksgiving dinner and ignored his family to work on my sewing...??

    I regularly... because I'm antisocial and having all those people in my house freaks me out after about 10 minutes.... work on things on my computer after we all eat no one in my family cares.. course if they did, they could get out... it's my house.. So this year I will be working on math homework. Maybe I'll get the whole family to play a math game and somehow get them to do my homework for me... hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. There's an idea.

    You can send apple pie to me, would look great on my kitchen table I'm sure. Be careful what you wish for Miss A, you may have more players than what you really want. If they're good at math that'd be okay, if not......do you really want an F in that class? Might be safer if they watch football and clean up the kitchen.

    I usually just let all four dogs in. They run the company out pretty quick, especially the two Malinois!

    hehe doesn't work with my rottie.. everyone loves him and he loves when people visit cause then he can be a lapdog.. And they love my cats cause they act like small dogs. At this point for math, I'm pretty sure that they might do a better job than I would even if they guessed.. haha.

    Mine are really friendly too, the Malinois are just so big and hyper that they eventually drive everybody out.

    or maybe my hubby randomly walked by the sewing room and was so stunned by the fabrics on the table that he couldnt help but start snapping? he took it but he was not thrilled doing it. the blues are two seperate piles that he thought would be easier if he had to only take ONE picture of if you just put these over here and .. talk about efficient photography.

    efficiency - hmmmmm some days I prefer the road less traveled.

    Apple pie at my house would prompt me to get the apple pie or apple crisp made instead of eating all those apples before their intended use comes and goes; the Mister can just imagine what his pie would have looked like.
    It's a fun topper/runner idea.

    Waiting for some of my fabrics to get here - ordered a layer cake of Wool & Needle; does it peak your interest?

    Will post more photos later.

    That red/burgundy colored snowflake along with all those fun blues/grays are finding their way to Minnesota.

    Oohh! Brat, I think I would happily take a runner (or two... or three...) made from any of those! Pretty!

    But I have to ask... Nude turtles??
