    We had freezing rain last night.. that was fun.. We "ice skated" across the parking lot to our cars after work. It wasn't actually too horrible driving home and it was fine today driving. it's supposed to snow again tomorrow. So we went from like negative 14's, to 36's, now we're going back down to 3 tomorrow. January is our worst month here in Minnesota. But it's been pretty mild comparatively. I really need to move somewhere warmer. I often try to think of where to go.. I think it'd have to be somewhere still midwest because I don't want hurricanes and I dont' want earthquakes.. We get tornados here and i've seen a few far too close (one ripped through my neighborhood about 2 blocks away a couple years ago) but that's really about it. We have a pretty wide range of temps and 4 seasons. There are places that could be tons worse. But I'm sure, if I just inch a little closer to the south, maybe I can get a little longer warmer season... without the crazy storm things.. maybe one day. I'm kinda pretty sure I"m suck here for the rest of my life.

    Well, there's a miserable looking line of storms heading our way in Tennessee. Could bring tornadoes too. I've been through every natural disaster there is (forest fire, house fire, tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes) except a tsunami - and I've seen those. That's close enough, thank you. I left early this am for the grocery and made it home before the rains started. Unloaded the car and then backed it out of the garage to get the dirt and dust at least washed off that way. It has been so cold and nasty that it was impossible to either wash or go to a car wash lately. My poor baby was awful dirty. Stay warm and safe everyone.
    I'm sorry Cherrio that you haven't gotten your runner. Think positive - either your partner will finally come through or that angel will.

    ladies, my partner sent a beautiful soft blue wintery runner. arrived this morn via fed ex. almost tossed it in on the table assuming it was some military thing for my son in law. It was in a tube. but being nosy I did give it the once over and it had MY name on it. Sorry for whining! The runner fits nicely on my lg farm table. I am heading to email my partner now.

    Hi Donna, Thanks for the help but I can't find the place where I can do that. The software that lets me download the pics to my computer doesn't let me change the size, then when I try to import it to the QB from my PC I couldn't get it to the right size. I'm stuck.

    Did you try the Picasa suggestion I posted? That's how I do mine. If you wanted to email me your outside email address, I could make a pdf tutorial and email it to you over the weekend.

    Most people should have Paint installed, I don't know about Mac users.. I pretty much shun all mac users including my mom and i bought her the darned thing.. Anyways, paint is very easy to resize in.

    Talking weather and I have to insert. MICHIGAN. We have 4 seasons, often in the same weekend!! We had below freezing temps, got lots of snow, it blew and made us miserable for a day or two, then the temps were close to 50, rained, thunder, lightening. Icey backroads, now today below freezing, wind blowing, but no snow left to blow. We've been on this roller coaster all winter. What is going on with Old Man Winter. It makes you wonder about the global warming thing.
    Got my runner. Out of town so couldn't post properly. It is gorgeous!! Left the package home and have not had a chance to take a picture, but will post as soon as I can. She keeps appologizing for the runner, and I think there is no need, it is very beautiful. Blue and White, just the right size. I will post a picture as soon as I can. Thank you so much, I love it

    Well, Nancia, depends on where North is in your room - it is winter and you need to make them fly properly...

    But that also means you need to be prepared to turn them south for the summer too, lol!

    ack=chew-alee, the geese here in the delaware valley do not fly anywhere . not for the winter or the summer. they were all born here and have never been anywhere else, much like some of the people i've met. someone here decided we need geese so they brought some in. these guys often travel from one side of the road to the other ( why did the goose cross the road? because he was a silly goose!) and they walk it, they don't fly. mother geese lose track of their babies because they can't count higher than 3. so there are 3 numbers for mama g , none. 3 and ida no?!

    Nancia- so glad the geese found their way east and landed at your house! I'd love to see a picture of them hanging on your wall. Nice to know they won't be traveling outside your area

    While I was taking pictures of the mug rug I got today, I thought I'd snap a few of the runner I got from this swap too! It's very happy on my kitchen table....

    Speaking of the feedback scores. I've written Patrice about how to make them appear on this page - like Stitchin and DustysMom. Mine don't show up. Any idea how to change my profile or what to make that happen?

    They won't show up on this page, only on their feedback page. I created an album for my swaps so others can see what beautiful work I received!

    nancia- love your photo's. The "geese" look content! Really like your hugging cat and mitten table runner. Both very cute!
