    Well... it started out that I needed to get some practice fabric for setting up The Six on Wednesday. And I had to bring my son with me because he had his winter choir recital and they let him go home early. No one else could make it to the recital, so I used the camcorder app on my phone. Which drained my battery.

    Then my son decided we need to make Cars (the movie) fleece tie blankets for 2 of his friends. That drained my debit card. I should have just waited and gone tomorrow while he's in school. Valuable life lesson learned there.

    I usually go to Joann during the day, since I'm not working right now and it's 45 minutes each way, but I never go alone, and it's me that is the drain to the card, lol. I went last week to get 1-2 things to finish up a teapot cozy for my boyfriend's mom, which I'll be throwing together today, to match the placemats that I made her (that seemed to never end) for Christmas. I ended up spending $150. But....they had an awesome sale on Guterman thread (I got the box set that has about 20 spools for $20, plus 2 spools of white and 3 big spools of variegated thread for 50% off and 2 more spools of transparent thread), and of course I raided the remnants that were 50% off. Now I'm going to have to spend some more money and either make some storage bins for all this fabric I'm accumulating or buy some plastic bins to put it all in. My boyfriend opened the guest room closet the other day and saw all my plastic bags (sorted by stash and upcoming project) and had a fit about not being able to get to anything else, lol.

    You beat me to it! I was just putting the pics on the computer so I could share!

    I got the most PERFECT runner from DustysMomma in my mailbox last night!!! It has my Christmas Blues, and COFFEE!!!! And it's even reversable with ALL coffee and some eye-spy mugs on the other side! I love it! I was so giddy over it, my husband and his best buddy were making fun of me for being so grin-ny over it.

    But Dusty, I have to ask; exactly WHEN did you find time to sneak in my house and measure my kitchen island?? It couldn't POSSIBLY fit more perfectly!!

    THANK YOU!!! THANK YOU!!!!! ::happy dance::

    Haven't heard that my swap partner received hers yet - but, I haven't taken the time to check my confirmation number either. Will try to remember to do that tonight after dinner. Lots of really neat runners/toppers showing up. I'll be waiting for the mailman to bring mine, but I know that they don't have to be here until the new year - just have that anticipation......

    Tracibug, what a nice guy you have holding your runners. Love the lower lip!!!
    Traced my package. My partner received her runner on the 14th, but she hasn't posted here at all. I do hope she likes it. I have that problem, when someone doesn't at least acknowledge receipt, I begin to think my gift was not liked and that's their way of blowing me off - terrible, isn't it?
    Ana, great on your grades and keep the bugs at bay so you can enjoy the holidays.

    Vanogay happens to me ALL the time the worry the oh heck I blew it.. you my dear are not alone. Just two seconds to say thank you even if you cant post a pic is the right way to do things. I think it is the do unto others thing that is going on.. and we all want acknowledgement. Maybe they are gone for a few days ? I will wish you a posting asap if you don't get a response ask Anastasia to check in with them and if that doesnt work show us your runner as I am always loving these showings.

    Tracibug you lucked out big time. I am loving sock monkeys too ..my husband is scared of them lol.. yes yes he is. The twister is wonderful and I think you scored big time. Hey you got TWO?? WOW lucky duck.

    Today I will work on finishing at least the top to my second runner. I have two cut one sewn and then to figure out the design I want. Not sure what say you to a shorter than 36" table runner? is that unusable or should I make it larger? its going to be about 28" right now.. my partner did not post what size she wanted to receive.

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

    Elisabrat on page 1 says minimum of 12 x 28 for runner. Everyone's getting some nice runners, still waiting for mine. Hope she lets you know Vanogay, trust me I feel the same way. Just want to know they got it, I know delivery confirmation and all that but it's nice just to have that definate "yep, I got it"
    Congrats are great grades Anastasia, you should be very proud.

    TracibugI am so happy you like them. I had so much fun making the twister wreath. I wanted to sew on buttons on it but didn't think that would be a good idea with being on a table with things on it. I wanted to give a nice large candel for the middle of it - but postage is too much lately!
    Love your son's pic!! enjoy yur trip and Christmas!

    VANOGAY: I have been out of town and just got home a little bit ago, and had a beautiful Christmas table runner waiting for me. THANK YOU so very much!!!! I think it's new home will be on my coffee table in the dining room.

    It's somply beautiful, with greens/gold/& reds in it. I hope you took a picture of it b/c I still can't figure out how to get it off my phone, onto the computer then onto the board. sorry. But if you took a picture and can post it for me that would be great!
    Thank you again for your thoughtfulness.

    LoupEsprit, I guess a little bird must have put the measurements in my head, lol. And here I was worried it was going to be too big! I have to admit I wasn't too happy with the tag, but if I get some personalized ones made (which I plan to do after Christmas) I'll send you one to put over that ugly one, lol. I'm glad you are so happy with it! Just tell those nasty ole boys to go look at some tools or electronics and then laugh at them about their reactions!

    Well we're off to the airport to fly to Denmark. Merry Christmas!

    Well, Laquita, I did take a picture of your runner before it left here, so will post it below. Sorry I got so worried about you not getting it/not liking it, but that's the way I am (and obviously a few others, as well). Glad you did like it - and hope it matches your kitchen curtains - or at least doesn't 'clash' with them!

    this is a personal message to my secret partner which is why i can't p.m. you. if i did then it would not be secret anymore. i have set up times to do all my projects based on the due date. so.... you will be among the last to receive your table embellishment. keep the faith! it will come!!

    Wow, Nancia, let us know how that works for you. LOL I have all kinds of time lines. Then life hits. Can't wait for the weekend so I can get all my projects finished up.

    Well ladies, I can officially post the following awesome things:

    -Final grades came in - 4.0 for the semester, 3.93 overall (because of one "B" my first semester from an ogre - side story, there were only 2 of us in the class, he was a bully, and the following semester we led a revolt that resulted in him resigning his position of 30 years. But the B stands. Asshats.)

    -The Six, aka my longarm, is residing in her new home (my basement) and I've already used her to do a crib-size FMQ (which looks like I stood there & had a seizure while she was running). The computer is up and running (for the most part) and I'm looking for donation quilts to practice on (PM me if you're interested).

    -Alice the A$$hole (my dog) had her surgery last week and is still walking on 3 legs. The good news is she has stopped puking every time she eats. (Yea for puke-free Christmas!)

    -Midget's last day of school is today. Cookies tomorrow.

    -There is no new snow projected until *maybe* Monday.

    These are all my reasons to be happy. I'm planting my but in bed and enjoying my last day of do-nothing, no-deadlines, be a bum for 2012.

    Nancia good idea if it works for you. My timeline is when I sign up, then pull and match fabric, sew it and send. I'm just one of those that if it was sitting here I'd go nuts.
    MamaHauser awesome grades even if there was an a-hole in your life at school too! Gotta' say as for Alice, it''s probably a really good thing you like her alot However, bet you don't stay in bed all day, you'll go nuts......

    Nancia, not sure that particular line of reasoning works with me. When I get a project, I start working on it. May not finish it right away, but I'm like Jaba, if I don't get it out, it drives me crazy. Now, my own things, that's a different story - some of them sit for a looong time before they're finished. I've got a list for 2013 of projects already - and some of them are actually older quilts that I'm planning on finishing - some of them are hand work (crewel/cross stitch/surface embroidery) as well.
    Mama, congrats on the good grades. Hopefully Alice will get better - and no puke is a good thing!! If I could convince my one cat Que of that that was a good thing, it would even be better.

    we all do what we can. i have never defaulted on a swap, even when my mom died last year. i, too, have had things come in months later, and things just never get here at all. i have always thanked my swap partners , either by p.m., or more often on the thread. and i ask if there is a need for rushing.
    mama-- good job!! there are unhappy people in every career. too bad you got the one at your school. 3.8 is nothing to sneeze at!! no puking is even better!! lol

    Nancia no one was picking on you sweetie everyone was just stating how they work on things. I am sure you complete all your projects. I personally get in a panic mode if I dont get to something asap. The hard part however is when your due on several projects be it personal or here and then its for me the AHHHHH moment in life. I get sick to my stomach with nerves. You are obviously someone who is a whole lot more organized than me and handles things one day at a time. Good for you!

    I have half way got the top done. I did see the 28" rule just wondered if most preferred long or super long? I like long and wide for the coffee table but smaller like a table topper which certainly is not 28" so that way we can put a hot dish on it and still all sit and have plates fit on the table too. so it depends on where its going. I am going for longer. Seems safe. I found the perfect middle block for the runner yup its blocks again but switched up a bit. I am working hard at using the two colors my partner asked for.. (that was your hint partner).. and it will get done right after Christmas going to finish the top today. Wish me luck! Snow.. Snow.. SNOW! (oodles of snow coming my way today).

    Last CONGRATS to both our girls Anastasia (Erin) and Themomahauser (Kelly). You both are so smart and I think its wonderful that your out there in school with all those little kids (lol) and your flying high right on top of the pack. way to go!
    Kelly you sound like your setting up for a really wonderful start on your new venture. I am so glad to here your pup is doing better they heal so much faster than we do. And you have are going to have a good holiday. You are a lucky lady.
    Vanogay: love the table runner I wanted that one when it was posted a while back .. that is a very pretty lil quilt.

    Mama, congrats on the grades! I graduated from college 2 weeks before my 39th birthday last year with a 3.87 GPA, so I know what a challenge it is. A puke-free Christmas is always a good thing. Good thoughts coming your way!

    Oh, and I bet you didn't stay in bed all day either!

    Good night from Denmark!
