    Thanks everyone for the welcome back.

    have to be honest and say that I have missed all the fun
    of the SP swaps.

    Luvstoquilt - By now you must have a clue that your snowman table runner is a huge hit!! Please include me in your nice, not naughty list.

    Brenda - Jeter is a VERY handsome guy. I hope looks are not deceiving!! I think he would look great as Rudolf for Christmas. He's got the perfect coloring...

    Sharon Anne..what a great idea...Jeter does look like a reindeer! I hope he is nicer than our "Pogo" was. We named him using a Spanish textbook..."El Pogo Pero" we thought it translated to "The little dog" actually it meant "Not much dog"...much more apt description.. he was naughty but funny...he terrified the boxer that lived next door.

    I do hope your legs are feeling better!

    I hope we get or SPs tomorrow! So exciting!

    Checked my emails today and received a 50% off coupon from Joannes. Just waiting to get my name to see if I will use it for sp this month or for something for myself, thats if I can ever decide what to get. Cant pick from a portable iron, rotating rotary mat, or one of those appliqeing sheets that keep the goo off of you ironing surface. Choices, choices, choices. The difficult life of quilting.LOL

    Question for everyone who makes pincushions.
    Do you use (past, present or future) emery sand?
    (the stuff that sharpens pins & needles)?

    I am asking because I will send some to my SP when I
    get their name if they have responded.

    Have purchased approximately 6lbs worth of the stuff
    and have not yet made any pincushions using it (but I want too).

    Quilty-Louise - I just use polyfill for mine. Didnt know that such a sand could be used and will sharpen as said. I would love one if you get me.

    Drat, I missed the sign up. I haven't gotten on in a week, my next door neighbor of 30 years passed away and I've been dealing with funeral things. Now i'm off to go feed her daughter's chickens. I'm going to put "check for next month's secret pal sign up" on my end of the month to-do list!

    I can't find emery sand either, and it is like $7.50 a pound plus shipping online. My local hardware store is looking into ordering emery sand for me!

    I've also been making the little canning jar pincushions, making about a dozen for my friends on various quilt guild committees... I have been racking my brains for something to fill them with to give. Small candies, etc. I considered the chocolate covered sunflower seeds but know one lady in the guild can't have them.... any suggestions, anyone?

    Excited to get my sp's name! Already pulling items to put in their package. I'm still new enough, just 3rd swap, that I worry about what to send. Praying everyone has a wonderful holiday season.

    I had several pages to catch up on. I did see Lori's post for sign up and stayed up late on the 29th so I wouldn't miss it(was afraid I wouldn't get home from work in time on friday) we are extremely busy now at work so no little extra breaks now.
    Mscupid and Quilty-Louise sooo good to see you on here again I missed you too. Louise I did see your sunset pic on fb. nice view. Glad your back and posting and signed up!
    knitette -yes it is a good thing in the interest of international relations that you signed up. I think it is really neat to get things from other countries that give a peak into something of your locality. You don't ever have to send fabric in this swap-it isn't required, and you can send us interesting things from your area. priceless. you could even send me a rock from Scotland, not like I can go out and buy one here. Then I'd have a piece of foreign land hehehehe. Isn't there a royal castle there somewhere-I could own some of the queen's land!
    Now more comments...before I get into trouble.
    churcae--we were all first timers at one time.
    jaba LOVE the Christmas lights. I especially love it when people leave them up through winter here, on those cold winter nights walking through the neighborhood or even driving- it seams a little warmer seeing the lights-except the leds that are clear but look bluish, they make me feel colder. Anyone putting up outside lights its ok with me if you leave them up and turn them on till spring! And Jaba thanks for posting the picture I never could have seen it in the avatar.
    Brenda Are you going to get a red nose on Jetter? Would Miss Daisy wear the Santa hat?
    luvstoquilt I would luvtohave the snowman!
    OK so while I was out getting some fabric for the FQ swap (that one you do have to send fabric) I saw an picked up a cute little fun thing for my sp package.
    Oh I love the emory filled pincushion type thing for shapening my pins and needles. I had one of those small ones that came with the classic tomato pincushion eons ago but lost it and was thinking about finding some of that emery filler. then the GREATEST thing happened. A few months ago my SP sent me a BIG strawberry filled with emery! I never thought to ask for it but it was perfect.
    If you have a favorite notion or aid maybe send one to your SP it might be something they didn't know exists.

    And Lori I was going to suggest that a question for the survey might be if one hand quilts, machine quilts or both. But I didn't get the suggestion to you before the sign up was posted so putting it here now.

    I'll try not to be away so many days next time--it takes forever to catch up.
