    I didn't mean for you to do embroidery. I meant ME! I have so many happy hearty designs!

    Lunchtime's over. Back to the grindstone!

    It's winter frolic here in Ralston, WY. Snowing, the ground and trees are white, and the wind is blowing. It's a chilly 32 right now. It's suppose to snow all day tomorrow too, hope not I have to drive 115 miles for my doctor appointments to find out when and if they are going to do surgery on all the discs and sciatic nerve. Hate slick roads.

    I envy y'all with the snow.. I miss Fall and Winter! Hopefully this year in my lil neck of the woods we'll get them both back! Have been in such a drought the past 2-3 years. And unusually warm. I am up in the panhandle area of Texas, one reason I love it here is we get (or used to) all 4 seasons of weather. We had a cool front blowing thru earlier, highs supposed to be in low 70's today, hope weatherman's right. Though rainy and cooler, or snow and cold would be much better!

    Snow is beautiful if your inside right now there is a good 8 to 12 inches in the front it piled up more on the porch and steps looks like we have no steps. Hubby is freaking out. We haven't bought our chains yet. dumb bunnies. he slide out on his way home from work last night right behind another car that slid out. he got back on the road and made it just 1/4 mile farther slid again pulled over said hell with it called a tow truck. cool. got home 1 1/2 hours after he got off, ten minutes from home. Cab company is booked (all one car they have I guess) asked last night. he is talking hitch hiking.. really> walk a mile to the highway and hitch hike? oh great. Praying one of my neighbors goes to work this morning and if they do they will give him a ride. or I have one GRUMPY man on my hands. yikes.

    These pics just for you Kiffee. Part of the back yard, the shrubs around my koi pond and this is a big pine tree out my kitchen window. All those branches are so loaded they are laying on the ground. Over a foot of snow and it's a whole 15 degrees. Suppose to snow all day until midnight tonight.

    Wow! Beautiful snow pics!
    lAnd we're supposed to be over 90 this afternoon. Then cool front over the weekend dropping overnight low into the 50s and daytime in the 70s. I'm sure we will be back in the 80s by midweek tho.

    Oh Jaba!!! I don't know whether to send you a big cyber hug...or tell you now I really am longing for snow... So I will do both! Those pics are breathtaking! Probably takes your breath being out in the cold, too...
    I am going to re-look at those pics again...and drink my iced cola with our almost 80 degree high sunny day shining outside my door.
    Guess the old saying "Grass is greener" (or snow whiter) really is true

    Hubby has just been shoveling all day, it has melted some though. Still very cold. I'm dreaming of your warm weather would be so so nice. I might have a cold cola but I certainly added something to it today.....think while I was sewing I was singing jingle bells rock or at least my version of it Gees, better check those seams tomorrow and see how I did

    Do you mean jingle bells on the rocks? With a twist of lime??

    While I do not miss the 80's I live right down the road from Jaba and my yard is a ditto on her yard. only diff is we do not have shrubs around the house we just have 3 feet of snow drifts there. warmer today so maybe it will magically be gone tomorrow so I can forestall on that Christmas music a bit longer. I love the holidays and well a good hot toddy sounds pretty good right now. its cold! when I head out tomorrow it should be a balmy low 20 I think at 6 in the morning. oh just yippy yeah! Thanks Skaduzy!

    The jingle bells rocked and the splash of lime wasn't bad either! Nice and toasty with the fireplace going, sewed tablerunners all day. Got on a roll I guess, 2 Christmas, 1 fall and have one cut for Valentine's. Need to quilt them and bind but the binding is ready to sew on. I'll be ready for any partner's wants I think. Just have to hide them when the kids are here in a few days. Hope all our snow melts Brat.....not ready for this cold yet.

    OK, I'm officially signing up. I sent a PM to Elizabrat. I just hope the only snow I see is either in photos on this thread or printed on fabric.

    Yay! A newbie..glad to have you join in, Likethedog! We're all "nice folks" I think..sometimes a lil "toony" maybe, but still nice. Or I should speak for myself and say I can be a tad "toony" .

    Sewed yesterday and started putting a package together for the Secret Santa swap. Today I better clean up my mess, clean out a drawer and hide these table runners from my kids or I'll have to start all over again. That would be a shame.... Need to get a quilt off the long arm as dear grand daughter is bringing one with her that she wants to quilt. So much to do and not enough time.

    YIPPEE Mom-6!!! and another one comes and another one comes and another one signnns upp! (sing it with me ya'all).. I knew you couldn't resist the marvelous charm of all us chatters , I mean quilters! We needed your colorful comments and ideas. so if Mom-6 joined and all the others.. WHY ARENT YOU??? This is such a cool swap you definitely need to join.

    Today I finish the binding on a runner. I hate hand sewing it yet haven't figure out how not to lol and have it come out looking decent. I am a bit unhappy it appears to waffle a tiny bit on one side no matter how I press it. argh pirates. if it does not lay flat I might just sew another one. I am not embarrassing my self here ok well not with my sewing anyways. I am so far from perfect in my mind.. it always works out but on the sewing block.. not so much. I tend to stumble on the quilting part. Its easy to make the tops its the quilting that well .. needs lots of work til one day one year I get it right. or not so be easy on yourself and enjoy the ride its awfully fun. And you can only improve with each and every project. (this is a theory I have).

    I wholeheartedly agree with your theory! I told my husband that since I'm learning to sew, buying fabric is like "tuition."

    I finally read through all the chatter - love the snow pictures jaba - my niece made a beautiful snowman wearing a cowboy hat and scarf - what fun to be able to play in the snow; early season snow will be gone by weeks end.

    Lots of fun ideas - I'm up for winter shenanigans!
    Be good to yourself - do one thing each day that makes you smile.

    Seems like most of us are our own "worst enemies" eh??!! I know dh has jokingly told me he thinks I actually LIKE taking out my work more than I do making it...or that I like to make a 2nd or a 3rd one...I turn it around and tell him he seems to be the same way on his woodworking projects. 'Nuff said!
    I know when my "quilty sisters" in my quilt group bring in one of their newly made creations, and they say "this is not right, or don't look at this part..." That usually I can't see/wouldn't have seen if it wasn't pointed out what they were speaking of...and I am guilty as charged of the same...So, here's to us trying to get better from that ( riiiiight...lol)
