    Marytoddliz can you post your apple runner now that it has been received? I would love to see it since it accidentally DIDNT COME HERE.

    I have quilting to do today. Last night I made an amaretto cake to gift to a couple people. I used a rum cake recipe so wish me luck that it came out ok. I tried a small piece out on Steve who does not like almonds and he said it was definetely good and will be loved. I sure hope he is right!
    oh and Marybeth I dont eat chocolate much. Its not like jelly bellies. Jelly bellies rock. and taffy, and carmel and things that stick to your teeth like licorice. So question of the day if you could have only ONE candy what would it be? today for me.. Grapefruit sours.. not sure they are sours but they are these sugared fruit slices that have a semi tart grapefruit flavor and ohh I havent had those in years. yuppers three or four of those would make a great breakfast!

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

    You really need to send me that recipe for amaretto cake so I can make one, it sounds wonderful.
    Quilting, I'm so happy you liked the runner, I really enjoyed making it for you. Pattern was new to me but I think I'm addicted to it now. I love making them!
    MaryT show us those apples, didn't come to my house either.....

    Well, I am sad to say that I did not have a camera then! But I did take a picture with my web cam, but did not turn out real great! But will try to load it up!

    I have a camera now! and I am working on finishing the best DQ I ever made! It is being finished and hitting the mail as soon as I get the address for my Partner! Pink Lotus.

    Sorry but this is the only picture I took with my Web Cam, Dappler312 will post a picture, I wanted to show you the back too, I embroidered it and it turned out pretty good!

    Well I have to get back to work, I have a quilt to get in the mail today. It is going to Vermont, the back is Cammo and the front is various Woolen plaids! (I am allergic to Wool, and can only work on it for a few hours at a time) I will post picture in the picture thread when I am done!
    Give a smile away today, someone you meet might need one!

    Donna, I love that table runner, you did an awesome job with it! I really like adding a little bit of embroidery to everything I make now, it is addicting. And having both machines running at same time it really does not take very much longer.

    But my old trusty 30 year old New Home Memory Craft 6000 (Nellie) is starting to show her age. She has been in the shop a lot lately. I am now looking for a new machine, well actually and old one.

    I want to find a singer 301, They were made in 1951, 1956 and 1961. they are a really good machine to sew denim with, which is most of my business. My Nellie will get used just for making clothes for my Grand Daughter. The 301 is made with all metal parts and can really take the heavy loads of denim, leather, and Twill heavy fabrics. mt friend has one and I can't help but want to take hers! LOL, she got it at a yard sale for $20.00 I am saying prayers that I can find one just like it, hopefully for $20.00 too!

    *stumble, grumble groan grouch*.. ok.. so.. I friggin hurt.. from the gym trainer, then the foot of snow, then unearthing my truck this morning after 1 hour of sleep, to shovelling again when I got home.. I'm tired. Boss told me.. oh you gotta be here at 6... nope.. didn't have ot be there til 6:30.. *scowl* coulda slept a little longer. I'm thinking I need a nap but then I worry I will have another 1 hour sleep night. See why I can't think of sewing right now? I still haven't finished my paper due wed.

    Pamprin and Exedrin both contain a good dose of caffeine - I've used them both before when weaning myself off the sugary, bubbly crack in 2 litre bottles.

    My runner left the mailbox on Saturday for somewhere south and east of me.

    I had 3 finals today, 1 more tomorrow and 1 that is for an online class. I'm going to finish that last one on Weds when Alice is having her surgery.

    This has been an incredibly easy semester, but it feels like it's been going for 8 months instead of 4.

    this is one of those threads where you snooze, you lose! always so much to catch up on! i have taken a detour from my usual swap work, to make reversible christmas stockings. i will post pictures! i am making them with one quilted side and the other 3 plain. flip it inside out and it's a different stocking. i am making 8. 4 for each family of three. perhaps the extra stocking will inspire them to create a 4th family member (devious grammi at work!). they have been fun to make, but have taken more time than i planned. grrrrr. just for fun i bought both of my olivias matching outfits and pne for o'lala's 18inch doll. i hope they look adorable! and more important, i hope they all fit!!! once the stockings are finished i'm back to swapping! and i hope they get here tomorrow so i can turn it around and mail it out ! aren't the holidays fun?!? i asked for an 18" henry doll from pottery barn kids, and 'accidental' i ended up with two! congrats to me!!!TWINS!! LOL

    ok I seemed to have missed a bunch too! Love to see your tablerunner Marybeth when your partner posts it! I am almost ready to make my second one. My dq's are all in the mail and my Christmas project is moving along at an alright pace got a reprieve it doesnt have to leave here til Christmas day so that gives me til the 21st so its finished before my daughter gets here. Yippee! I think those are cool sounding stockings Nancia please show us!
    ANASTASIA ball fringe? BALL FRINGE? are you making a dual use item? like a table runner / cat toy? please say you didnt draw my name and have an evil side to you?? My cats would thank you profusely and send you whats left when they are finished. I had a bit of that fringe once and it was sooo much loved. same with tassels. ohhh sooo fun.

    Kelly and Anastasia CONGRATULATIONS school is over! (for a bit) I know you both will do superb on your tests and hope you get at least two weeks off for bad behavior!

    Marybeth, good luck looking for a 301. I am looking, too. Sent mine home with my DSister. She came, we sewed, she loved, I sent!! DH wanted to know why I sent one of my favs with her. Cause I knew it was reliable and easy to adjust and fix. I have a 501 that just needs cleaned u p. I am nhoping it is just as nice. But with cams for decorative sewing. Though I will prob still use my modern Janome for that. You will not regret purchasing one of those machines!!

    I'm pretty sure I put it on there, but if not it's on my profile. Figured I'd make it easier for all future swaps and put my likes/preferences in my profile!

    Ready for a piece of apple pie

    Hello fellow threaders - this is the table topper Marybeth made for me; she does awesome work; she even included a couple of mug rugs - the cookie mug rug reminds me of a cover for an old cookie cookbook. She truely did a wonderful job customizing with my name, the name of the swap and the artists name and location.

    Oh so nice, makes me want to bake an apple pie almost. But you are right, her quilting and embroidery are truly beautiful. I need to make some cookies too, husband thinks he's deprived at this house. Finally yesterday I think I got everything in the mail that needed to go. Better check tomorrow to make sure....then he might, trust me might get a batch of cookies.

    I didn't put a name or date on the one I did. I don't embroider and wouldn't want to mess it up with permanent marker, lol.
