    Ok.. ladies and germs.. for your viewing pleasure.. from my stash o' books and mags to your eyeholes, I bring you, 88 pieces of inspiration.

    http://www.quiltingboard.com/members...bums17746.html

    Now, I KNOW I have a magazine here somewhere that has a log cabin wreath. But my kitten has a magazine fetish and I had to pull one of the magazines out from under the couch, so I think the one with the wreath is also in there.

    Also, Norash emailed me this adorable table runner pattern awhile back

    http://www.conniekresin.com/2011/12/...-tutorial.html

    So.. inspiration galore! Don't pass out from the possibilities.

    While I was doing this, I came to the realization that maybe I should have asked if people celebrate Hanukkah or Christmas or anything... What do you think? Does it matter?

    I was good, honest, (tiny fingers a bit crossed while my hands are accidentally behind my back).. GOOD FOR ME what are you implying Nancia? its ok I will forget in short order anyways so its all good now that I passed you guys who only have sometimers up I am realizing moretimers is ok too.. moretimes than not I forget something. I cant even remember the good old sometimers days sometimes I remember stuff sometimes I don't. I rely on my special pals to keep me up on what I need to be remembering. My DH is very good at not saying I TOLD YOU OR YOU ALREADY TOLD ME he just repeats what i ask for say the 10th time and its a good gentle reminder. I love him. Same with my pals. I am so fortunate. (now onto better things like poking fun at..).

    I am thinking of using the deck the wall pattern from American Patchwork and Quilting mag Dec 2012. But obviously switching out Christmas colors I just like the design lay out and it looks like its as simple as they say it is.. for me that is always a challenge.. now I need colors for my theme.. and a center piece to go with the theme other than that I am all set (or not at all depending on the hour). Of course I have this cute blue cat fabric that would go great with so many things.. saving that for my special friends. Be scared. Be very scared. Its the ugliest fabric in America gifted to me. Blue cats.. with ties on oh joy! promise if your good to me I wont use it in your table runner (Nancia watching you.. beware be very very worried) last jaba honey you crawling to the post office to return all those runners could make good video footage, is americas funniest videos around still? split the pot with you. oh and wear those support hose and your good clarks sneakers, a hair net would be a good added touch.

    We have a great list and its only getting better and bigger!

    I see I must have paralyzed everyone with boatloads of inspiration. Either that or they are off jumping the gun and working on them already. But.. I don't like the sound of crickets.

    We're up to 20 now. YAY! Where's my marketing crew? Get back to work!

    Hello, I am so mad! spitting nails kinda mad! Oh well does me not one bit of good to be that mad! But my Wonderful sweet kind loving ABSENT MINDED husband left my computer and my Kindle Fire in Laguna Niguel, where we have been the last 3 days painting! I really love working with him but not under this kind of stress! So now I have no way to stay in touch with you all until next Tuesday! Unless my Son or DIL lets me sneak onto their LAP TOP and post a quick hello!

    Right now I am on hubbys computer that is as old and slow as he is! Hehe, I am being so mean, so sorry~ I really love him but wish he would keep his hands off my gadgets. He took the Computer case out of the pick up and put it in the Garage of the house we are painting, thought it would be safer! But he forgot to tell me he did that. So when we got home tonight I asked him where it was!!!! I know I know get over it! I will I will, just have to vent! btw my pickup has a bed cover on it, no one would have bothered it where it was!

    So the Marathon is Sunday! Nov 4th... I am getting excited and also excited about seeing my Son, DIL and Grandson! I am sad that Hubby had problems with his crew so will miss it! he will have to be back in Laguna Niguel Painting! I told him I would give up the run but he is really a sweetheart and knows that all the training it would suck to miss it! So I have to take the train to my Son's house and he will take me to the race! It is such a pain having so much going on right now, but I know he really needs the pickup to work and I am happy to ride the train, wish I had my Kindle though!

    OK My Whiny self is going to go check out some other places on the boards. I will be heading north to Fresno area on Wednesday so until then I get to use this old dinosaur and do it happily, with no whiny noises... well maybe just a few~

    I am glad I have a good long time to get this swap done, I will need the rest! My Son says he will take a picture of me AFTER I run 26.2 miles! I look really old at the end of my race!
    Give a smile away today, someone you meet might need one!

    Marybeth one that is virtually impossible but look ALIVE after it not prone on the cement with chalk lines ok? We know you will complete the race and time only matters to those who care so keep a nice slow pace, so you dont get sick again, its never as much fun the second time as the first and I think you didnt enjoy much but thehot toddys the first round. Jaba, could you get her a hot toddy so she sees she doesnt need to be sick to get one?

    Travelingramma tada! we need some of your lively energy here, jump in anytime feel free to whomp Anastasia for me, I mean anyone who needs it but me if they are bad. Nancia honey there is not enough make up to cover up that whooping so perhaps you should wear long sleeves/ i mean um that fall ,, um tumble you took. AND GIVE BACK THAT QUILT BLOCK.. calling MOOOMMMM somebodys MOOOOMMM come help me. They are all picking on me and i didnt do a think, snivel snivel promise they are being meanies.. oh now your gonna get it.. you guys just wait. Somebodys mom is coming and your in trouuubbble. sticking tongue out at you, you know who you are.. that mom knows too.

    Sorry Elisabrat, you'll still be our naughty girl, no matter how many people join. And don't think you're fooling anyone with this silent music hour stuff - we know what you're doing while you're "da da da daaa da daddada, etc-ing". Now put down the mouse and go sew.

    I think you are taking it fairly well Marybeth but to make sure your frustrations are all gone here's a suggestion...Put a pic of hubby on the toes of your running shoes, by the time the race is over you will have stomped the poor man in the ground and you'll feel better and have your gadgets back. Win win situation, just let me know how he looks at the end of the race. I might have to bring him a toddy too!
    Vanogay, brat is naughty because she has her day and nights all screwed up. By the time she takes her dose of medicine at midnight, she's awake...then the little devil is all mischief!!! She has to do something with that idle time, poor thing she's yakking at us and we're ignoring her. Sorry "brat"...we gotta' do something about this. Should I start setting my alarm to keep you company? I've got to straighten up sewing room today, been getting boxes ready to send out and have stuff from one end of it to the other. Drives me nuts!!! so best getter done.

    Jaba, I keep her company and attempt to keep her out of trouble. I have my days and nights mixed up too, then days like today I have to get up all early for an interview.. blargh. Wish me luck.

    Good luck on the race Marybeth, I agree, maintain a steady pace and don't worry about time. I couldn't do one. I'm only able to get my large rear in motion for about 8 or 9 miles total in one stint. And my feet really don't like that afterwards.

    hey I resemble that name, .. brat. I am however an angel in troubles clothing. or something like that. I have the table runner for my daughter all cut out and ready to finish. You see I cant cut at night without messing things up so I dont sew then either.. talk about zombie land. And I would so love to sleep at say 9 or 10 like some regular sleepers do but that doesnt work or if it does I have to get up at midnight anywhoo so there you go.. here I am! I will not post a single thing for 24 hours you watch me. if I forget oops
    Vanogay, um.. me trouble? why never ever and singing? love to sing .. especially when you are in possession of something I need.. like a cool tablerunner then I might accidentally say and point at the same time "LOOK PUPPIES" everyone will look and the table runner.. well dont know where it went. No one is allowed to come to my home either the stacks are getting bigger by the day of pretty wall hangings and ornaments and.. you all have a wonderful 24 hours I will harass our dear baby girl here later tonight. She can report back to you how good I am.

    I'm up with you both more than I care to think about. My internal alarm has been going off at 3 a.m. for don't know how long. Don't turn on the computer though, go downstairs and sew or cut or do something. Can always find something to do there.

    ehheh I get some of my best sewing done between 1-3am. Seems to be the peak of my energy time and boredom because everyone else has wimped out and gone to sleep I also do a lot of homework at that time, and I spend days sitting around goofing off and planning and watching tv, etc.

    Crud, have to get up at 11am again tomorrow. Ohwell. I should probably work on my Ethics discussion homework due tomorrow. I need to get packages out of my house so I can stop thinking about them.

    My best work happens in the first 3 hours of consciousness and the last 45 minutes before the sleeping pills kick in. The other 10 hours of the day are kind of a waste.

    I want to call the wambulance for you getting up at 11. We are up at 6:45 every day because it takes my rotten 8 year old 40 minutes to wake up and crawl out of bed. If I slept in any later, he'd never get to school in time.

    The fall time change can NOT come any sooner. Seriously, why hasn't it happened yet?

    I ALWAYS look forward to the fall time change. I love sleeping in.. obviously.. heheh I've never been anything less than a stabby crabby zombie before noon. But the problem isn't the getting up at 11. Its the getting up at 11 after going to bed at 7. hehe. I'm used to about 5-6 hours of sleep, I can function on 3 but it ain't pretty. I'm lucky tho, I have very little obligations at the moment and only crazy kitties and a dog for kids. They don't require me to take them anywhere. I'm enjoying it and letting my natural clock do it's thing, and that's.. 5-8am bedtime and a 12-2pm wake up. The first few days after trying to shift it back to something "normal" (who's normal?! can I beat this person up??) is really rough.

    All around, less people get stabbed if I stay up late and sleep in late

    Why is the water warm? Should we be concerned about that?

    so much chatter here. it took me 10 minutes of reading to catch up.

    If I find something in my UFOs that I can incorporate to a "Winter" themed table runner, then I will sign up. I am sure Jaba and Elizabrat will remind me constantly to be checking. Which they will have to because I am so busy getting ready for the craft show and need to finish up my UFOs for the year. Told DH that if I could stay home for a month I could get them all done and he would not have to look at the mess I continually make. I have overtaken the dining table, part of the kitchen counter and of course the living room has quilts all over it and overflowing from the back of the love seat. I want to sell them but around here, no one is willing to pay a decent price. well, enough of me, back to work so I can do some quilting during lunch today. Will keep watching and know I can rely upon the prodding to see if I have anything that will work. I know I have some fun Snowmen winter embroidery designs that would be fun. But to find the right fabric. Have to check the UFOs first before creating something new.

    Heheh. Gosh I gave up keeping track of my UFO's.. and you tattler Brat! Yes, I'm only playing if we have an uneven #.. it only makes sense. So I don't have to worry about finding someone who wants to make 2... And dont' start telling me that crap now cause this is my first let me figure out how to do a 1-1 pairing before I start doing 2-1 or anything else like that. haha.

    And.. uh.. I can't tell you why the water is warm..

    My lovely daughter took an inventory while we were cleaning up my stuff in the garage where the longarm was going. Yep, she counted 130 and quit because I had way to many and she did not even get to the ones hanging to be quilted and the ones under my sewing desk. The WIPs were not counted which are the ones that are the 1" squares and the 1.5" squares, and the 2" squares boxes. Yep, I have an addiction and working to cut them back.
