    Hehe yea my boy is hyper and friendly too but my family is too dense to get scared out. I like all the fabrics being posted.

    Omg this was the longest day eevverrrrr. Midnight would not come soon enough haha. But I sat with the most adorable gay black guy that told me all about the drama with his other gay friends. It's hilarious. he's like 28 and ONLY listens to music from the 50's and 60's and he had so much energy he was just vibrating. So the whole time I was trying to do the work while he watched, he couldn't sit still, so we worked out a system where I checked the files and he ran the computer, so that helped. His favorite person is Barbara Streisand. So funny. I love him to bits. I am liking most of the people at this job. So at least I had good company for the longest day ever.

    I was pretty concerned that I wouldn't make it home on the amount of gas I had so I knew in one account I had $4 and I tried to use that card, and it said no.. I was like.. well poo maybe I don't have $4, tried to call and it tried to give me to a banker.. I was like.. oh god I don't have time for this shiznit.. I knew I had $5 on another card so I went in to use that then came back and called about the other card.. And was finally told they deactivated my card cause one night a couple weeks ago I was trying to buy something for my BF but I needed it to attach to his account and so I couldn't enter the numbers, so he kept screwing it up and it locked up my card and they called and I verified yes it was me and all that, so why did they deactivate my card.. grrr.. And they didn't TELL me.. in no way whatsoever.. That's annoying. I'm like, I work for you people, stop doing that stuff to me. Bout ready to get a new bank but they do have their uses.

    So I made it home. Grabbed the mommy so she could come over and we unearthed my kitchen and cleaned out my fridge and did up almost all the rest of my dishes ready for tomorrow. Let my dog out and he didn't even care that Grandma was here, he wanted his dinner. haha He needs a bath before people come but I kinda don't care anymore. I suppose I should go to bed

    Yay naked turtles!

    Good morning fellow toppers/runners I just turned the oven down to 350 for the next 45 minute while I wait for the pumpkin pie to bake - yum. It's the simplest pie in the world to make and it mixes up so quickly. I'm grateful to the Pillsbury company for coming up with the ready to bake pie crust found in the cold case at the grocery store - took me only ten minutes to get both pies in the oven.

    I posted the following on another thread this morning and wished to share with you.

    I just wanted to wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving.
    If you're traveling to have dinner with friends or family be safe on the roads.
    Remember to reflect on the important things in life and what matters most;
    I'm grateful for my friends and family whether I've known them a life time or
    in fragments of time while passing through our busy days.

    Happy Thanksgiving to all you fellow threaders if you're celebrating today.
    Be good to yourself - do one thing each day that makes you smile.

    I looked at y clock its 6:40 and your cooking already? omg. What a long day that would be. Then I realized your probably east of me, most of you are seeing as I live in CA. a DUH moment taking a bow thank you. But regardless yoru on top of the game and the house must smell amazing ALREADY. I am making a rib roast probably put it on at 10 or 11 am. make some smashed potatos and I am golden. Bag of salad, oh crud need a caeser salad dressing recipe that is tried and true anyone have one send it in Pm to me. I hate guinea pigging it for something special. agh!

    HAPPY TURKEY DAY everyone. I wonder if that fabric can be divided 10 ways so I can send table runnes to all of you.

    I am thankful for everything these days. I love this board and the ladies I am meeting on it. The support, the laughter and the sharing of 'life' we do with each other. A special group to be sure quilters. We get each other so wonderfully THANK you everyone for making this a great place to come.

    Anastasia, I am glad you got home. I think a whole bunch of us have been in your shoes before. It happens. Cruddy though when it does. Look it as a great excuse to not have to go out for errands or shop on black friday. shuttering at the thought of a store with lines of people pushing to get in. To those who do it, enjoy to those who dont yahoo I am not alone. egad that is not a good image. wiping it clean of my plate. schwing! gone.

    Here today... why what a lucky bunch we are.

    Huh... well.. I got a whopping 4 hours of sleep and got up to put this GIGANTIC 22lb turkey in.. then I gave the dog a bath.. Course that means he's now shedding everywhere. We're supposed to eat at 1 (who's idea is that?! my mom told everyone 1). I don't think this turkey is going to cook by then. haha. Definitely not. hahaha. I think we put it in at 9:30.. haha. Ohwell. I'm always too broke to shop and don't deal with crowds so no black friday crowds..

    It's been one of the most joy filled and peaceful holidays we've had so far. However now I'm stressing that I have to finish my homework, due tomorrow.. eek. Well I think we ate at about 3ish. We just finished up pie and ice cream and we've been playing Wii games all day. It's been fun. My older brother brought his new GF this time and I know she was apprehensive because she has social phobia/anxiety like I do, but I think she's doing ok. I can tell she's not entirely comfortable because she's still sitting on the edge of the seat but at least she's laughing and will talk. So it's good. I have soo much turkey and sweet potatoes and mashed potatoes leftover.. YAY MEEEEEEE!!!! Dinner for this weekend.. woot. I make this sweet potato bake that has orange juice and is supposed to have rum, and I think people generally put pecan crumble on top but I put marshmallows. It tastes just like apple pie.. so it's super good. But my little brother still won't touch it cause he knows what it is.. silly boy. Ohwell. More for mee Hope you are all having a good and peaceful day. My new neighbors were out barbecueing right.. and all I see is flame and no one attending it, then I'm picking the turkey clean and I see it start to snow and they come out and I hear them curse cause their flame went out what's why you don't leave it unattended silly!! and you don't rely on lighter fluid.

    Left overs? what time is dinner Anastasia? I am good at eating left overs. We had prime rib as the kids wont come til Christmas and one turkey no matter how small is a whole lot of turkey for two people. I cut out one of my table runners last night. TADA wonder which one??? probably the multi colored rainbow one.. wait not making one of those. Ok it must be the turkey one.. nope wrong swap. Well definetely one of them. It will be a wonderful project to keep me out of trouble. I could use lots of help with that.

    Today is my Friday. Yipppeee! This means oodles of sewing time coming my way. I am jazzed. What wild and exciting projects are you ladies working on?

    Have been working very hard in my room today. Hubby started a painting job - our bedroom wall, so I am out of his way. Have finished two small placemats and put the bindings on 4 quilts. I'll have plenty of hand work now to last me through a football game or two. I'm on my way back downstairs to cut my table runner for my swap partner - and maybe cut two. I have two patterns, unsure of which I really want, so may have to do them both and then decide which to send and which to gift to someone else.

    OK, now that I can sit up and eat a little without turning green, I'm here to check up on you ladies and catch up on my reading! I see there's at least 1 already shipped. I shall start tomorrow if I'm able. My boyfriend evidently had a virus, not food poisoning, which started effecting him early Tuesday morning, and by Wednesday afternoon, it was effecting me too because I stupidly chanced sleeping in the bed with him Tuesday night. We've been a horrible pair the last few days, and still haven't had anything remotely "Thanksgiving" to eat. Thankfully Dusty was at his grandparents and didn't get it too.

    Jaba, now now, if I post what I'm looking for, I assure you that it will give away who my partner is. I had another idea, so we'll see. I did manage to get everything worked out on paper. I'm going to go for the applique, if it works out ok on a scrap piece, as I've never tried it before and have to get out the manual for my machine. I think I've decided on a way to incorporate a little flavor for the whole family too.

    So, I guess I will hint that my partner lives West of the Mississippi River.

    I can't post any more hints either... or I'm sure I'll give it away.

    I feel sorry for my partner, because I'm such a beginner I see soooo many faults already.

    I finished mine so will be mailing out tomorrow to my partner. Figure it might as well be at her house instead of mine. Hope she likes it, she still hasn't posted

    It's ok Tree.. I've only tossed around little ideas in my head but I haven't had the time to look at the colors of my partner to settle on anything but I have to get other stuff out the door before christmas too. Mainly my boom blocks and my neice's quilt. Which means next weekend I have to get the backing fabric for her quilt and this week I have to get her borders on. So it has time to get longarmed and sent back by christmas. I should be doing those borders today but I haven't the energy to go pull all my sewing stuff back out.
