    Ms. Cupid if you go to my blog page (http://tricia-ramblingsofaquilter.blogspot.com/) you will find the links for the new Furbabies pictures. I had to use the Humane Society's links for now to show the girls off.

    I have just come from the post office and have mailed my 2 packages. They are both going to the US and both have furbabies.

    SharonAnne...I hope you feel better soon. I had a bad knee problem and it took a year to make it better or should I say "livable". I went to the Chiropractor ..really helped. I have had those shots in the past and really didn't want to do that if I could help it. Wishing you well!

    SLHughes..it could be me...I am in the US and I have a furbaby.

    Shortmom5..wonder if we have the same SP...mine likes paper piecing and wants templates, too!

    Krystyna if you are reading this please know how much missed you are! I hope all is working out well for you!!!!

    Lori I hope today is restful and you are feeling better. You too Greenini!!!

That will help her tremendously.

    Anyone heard any more from Krystyna? I think about her and everyone else in that mess Sandy made. I miss her funny posts.
    Hi Faye!
    What happened to Lori? I thought it was odd that I hadn't heard from her at all since Sandy.

    We are plodding along. The house is going to be torn down -- once they did the rip out it was apparent that the storm surge shoved our poor little cottage so hard that it went off the foundation and cracked ceiling beams. Now we just need to get our ducks in a row for the insurance adjusters. Easier said than done.

    Very excited that we are getting living room furniture on Thursday! Now all we have are two office chairs and a cardboard box. Oh, and a TV on a table we borrowed from Blaze and Melissa.

    I can't wait to get sewing again. Need to measure the space in here and order an L shaped desk.
    I was able to recover some fabric from my studio, but had to wash it several times to be sure it was clean. I guess I should have just thrown it out. Silly how we try to hang onto things.

    Anyway, I hope everyone is well and getting ready for Christmas. I am going to find a tiny Christmas tree somewhere and find a corner for it. Sandy won't beat Christmas out of me even if she did steal my tree and ornaments!

    Hi Sharon
    Oh no! What's wrong with Greenini???
    Ladies we can't all fall apart at once.
    Miss you all so much. A few more days and hopefully I'll be back and posting.
    I need to label a couple of thousand photos and do spread sheets of everything in the house that was lost. 20 years of three pack rats and that's a lot!
    Will check in again soon. Love to all

    >>>Greenini - Your clues so far significantly pertain to me. Be forewarned, I'm really watching you closely!!>>>>

    Ya think so? The package is all sealed up and waiting by the door to go out Mon to our nutty post lady. So if things go the way they usually do, you should know by the end of the week if you're right or not
    . Either way we are both working on crocheting, only I'm trying to do a bathroom rug with a big hook and material useless for quilting. For some reason so far all the material is purple!

    In the mean time I hope you feel better. DH just is getting over a bout of elbow bursitis and it really seemed to help him taking Advil a couple of times a day. See if your doc ok's that. Those needles in the joints aren't fun, but do usually help. I'm smart, I get the ones they knock you out for and then get them to do the trigger point injections too. No reason to waste a good knock-out.

    K, thanks for worrying about me, it's nothing new, I don't think, but just a slump. When I feel a little better, I overdo and then knock myself out. Have spent most of today sleeping....and have an appt tomorrow with a therapist who does body work. I'm hoping she'll help

    So sorry to hear your house is totaled. You might consider a public adjuster if you're not happy with what they want to give you. Please let us know when we can send you some things to get started quilting/sewing again, I know how much you must miss it. I know I've got plenty of stuff around here that needs a new home. I hope that bit of green in the fabric helped you out a little.

    After Sandy I called our insurance, who, btw, handled a minor auto accident really well. I started asking about removal costs, extra costs due to increased material and labor costs after a storm, etc. She was no help, so I can't even imagine how frustrating it is to have to reconstruct your life.Makes me want to get out a camera, so a pan of all the rooms and put a thumb drive in the safe deposit box just to have.

    Lori, hope you're feeling better, and Robyn hello, nice to hear from you. If I missed anyone, sorry my meds are kicking in and I'm 9/10 asleep!

    Brrrrr it's COLD outside (and inside!)

    Being post menopausal I am not one for "getting" cold anymore
    (use to be a time when I STAYED cold).

    But I have to tell you today I am COLD!!! my feet are freezing and
    I even have thick fuzzy socks on.

    Guess this means I need to turn the heat on, last winter we only turned
    our heat on 3 times, and that was AFTER the beginning of the New Year
    this winter it is going to be TODAY when I turn the heat on.

    I think our low last night was 16 degrees and our high today is supposed
    to be about 37 but could have fooled me.

    My SP package is in the mail today!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Good News - my package is on its way I made it to the PO with one whole minute to spare to catch the last post to US before Christmas.

    Bad News - I have had a nightmare of a day, arrived at DGD's Christmas play to discover it had started 30 mins earlier luckily I got there just as she was about to go on to do her piece wonderful.

    Then I could not find a store that had padded envelopes in stock tried four until I found one, arrived home with envelopes with 20 minutes to make up package and get to PO.

    So SP partner your package is on the way BUT I forgot to put one thing in so sorry and I was very short of time on another item so you might have to trim a few threads (HINT you like hand embroidery).

    Fingers crossed PO gets package to you in a timely manner. More clues to follow

    It's snowing buckets here today and 13 degrees. Have to go to the post office and mail Christmas packages for family and don't want to even go out of the house. This will be a homemade chicken noodle soup night with hot french bread.
    My secret pal should have her box very soon, it's out for delivery. Hope she likes her little goodies.

    Sewdarncute Darlene, you have to be sending me a package as all the clues are me!!!
    Brenda your new dog is just too cute. Hope he is working out.
    So nice to hear from Krystyna and good luck with everything.

    KRYSTYNA, so glad to see you are back and sending Sandy a message. YOU go girl and rock it. Its so nice to see it when something as bad as Sandy tears peoples lives apart and those same people just pull up their boots and stick their tongues out at it and say you cant beat me. Its gives the rest of us a little perspective on out smaller isssues.

    Now onto the good stuff, SP I am working on you package and hoping to be able to get something homemade done for you. I had to pack up alot of my sewing stuff and stash it out of the house in storage so we could get our tree up. Space is limited here so I am still trying to reorganize my resized space. Hoping to get it up tomorrow and sew something.
    Now for another clue, you live somewhere that many people visit each year especially with their children. More clues to come later and hope you like your package once its done.

    Package

    I received my gift today from Inspectorcmm........Sharon. Some chocolate that I have been eating already, lotion, cream colored fabric, a template set that I am anxious to try and some great handmade items..........a tissue holder in red and yellow butterfly fabric, a mug rug too nice to use all handsewn with applique and beads ( I'll probably hang it on my Christmas tree), and the cutest potholder with a farm scene on one side and little pigs on the other. The patchwork pigs are the side I like best. All great work! She sure fulfilled my wish of handmade items!

    Thanks so much Sharon, I love it all.......but like the piggies best!

    Thank you SSnare for the December secret pal package. I really like it. I am unable to take pictures to post though.
    She sent me a quiltermaker magazine, A Christmas table runner she made out of scraps which is totally awesome,a little sunflower fabric little bag which is just awesome and will work for my insulin and supplies when I have to take it with me...thank you so much for that. Ive been needing something like that. She sent me a notepad, 2 Crocheted Christmas Ornaments, a little needle case she made, a chicken pin cushion she made that is so cute, peices of childrens fabric and several shades of browns fabrics that I will use for my brown bargello quilt eventually. And a nice little note on a pretty butterfly card.
    Thank you so much Sherry. Happy Holidays to you too.
    There comes a time in life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh, forget the bad, and focus on the good. So, love the people who treat you right. Think good thoughts for the ones who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of LIFE...Getting back up is LIVING...

    Dear SP, I haven't forgotten about you. I got your name late Friday night and woke up to 2 feet of snow the next morning and, because DH was out buying Midget his very first firearm (and took the 4WD truck to do so) I will be shopping for you on Wednesday and hopefully mailing on Thursday.

    I promise it will arrive before Christmas.

    Received my SP package today from LindaR. It included several pieces of pretty Christmas material, M&M's, a magazine, lint remover sheets, flavored tea, scissors charm kit and several patterns. I look forward to using the patterns. There was also the neatest zippered bag made from printed selveges. Thank you very much as I really appreciate everything. Have a wonderful and safe holiday season everyone!
