    Alright I'm in. I just finished my Christmas presents so I'm ready to make my wall hanging for another swap. I can add one more for February lol.

    Just so I don't forget a few of my favorite things...not including my daughter. Lol. Cats (I have 5) and my mini doxie (he's an odd ball and has dapple markings that match dfs Harley). Pink and green are my favorite color combo along with black and grey. My house is super country style lots of dark wood work and browns so I stay away from those colors unless I put on my boots.

    There's really only two colors I don't like. Purple and emerald green.

    Ok off to send my info to our gracious swap boss!

    I wonder too.

    Love my 3 fur kids, quite often they bring me much laughter
    with the crazy stuff they do.

    The "dude" aka Gizmo likes to sit in the bathroom and yell
    to get someone to come give him some attention, then he
    wants the linen closet door opened so he can jump in the towel
    shelf and make a mess out of the neatly stack hand towels and
    wash clothes.

    Miss "whiny " aka Nim will give you this "poor pitiful me" look
    and meow to get you to give her some attention. Or she sometimes
    will steal my elastic hair bands and brings them to my hubs so he
    can throw them for her to go chase.

    Then there is "the monster" aka Kiko now my oldest. When she decides
    it is time for attention she will wait til I am in bed than climb on my side
    or stomach and I swear she has volume controls on her purring because
    she always gets louder when I am watching something on tv, but let a
    commercial come on and she has a soft low purr, and she demands to
    get pets. But when she is done with the attention and pets instead of just
    getting off you and leaving, she will bite you to make you stop they she runs
    off the bed.

    I have 2 bins of "cat fabric" on top of everything else that I have.

    I think I had more than two bins full of cat fabric. I'm not sure how much I have currently, I had to totally purge my sewing room in order to pull carpeting. Now everything that I couldn't bear to part with is in bins and boxes. At least now I can find the pins on the floor, and when the kitties leave me little prezzies, I see it before I step in it, and it's easy to clean up. Last night one of the dear creatures did something unmentionable on my christmas tree skirt - I had to toss that in the wash and hang it up inside since we got rain overnight (buckets and buckets). Luckily it washed up fine and it's back under the tree this AM. This time there's wrapped presents on it to keep that from happening again. What a bunch of brats I have!

    oh dear LADIES no sharing the bad things cats do.. it makes those 'haters' find an excuse to say SEE SEE cats are rotten! its not true! they are adorable and a very huge part of my life. the best thing about my cats: they love me when I am down and out, in a cruddy grumpy mood, sicker than a dog, no make up on, wearing jammies all day they do not care at all. they just think I am marvelous and they are so easy to please with a simple pet or two. I say cats are worth their weight in gold and then some. Just saying you know.. a little bit of a cat lover. My email is a goofy one about cats.. I used to run a kitten rescue. did over 300 kittens in two years. The shelter has to put down babies that need bottle feeding. Not enough help to save them. I took them and cared for them, fixed vaccinated and adopted them out.. it was such a small thing to do and so very rewarding. Yup a little bit of a cat lady here.

    RUNNERS, I know you can't pick fabrics yet til you get to know your partner (by the way what a cool thing getting to know each other more than just by a name) but you can be picking patterns. there are a ton for free, killer ideas on pinterest that you can find also.. so I suggest if you pick a pattern or two now you will be ready come January when you get your name. The pattern picking takes ten times as long as fabric picking does. Show some ideas of designs you would like to make. its a fun way to encourage each other in creativity.

    I have a hoard of table runner patterns, and have more than a few ideas from Youtube videos! Haven't checked pinterest yet, but that's next. Fun, fun, fun!

    I've been collecting fat quarters with cats, whenever I find them. I have eight or nine now. Eventually, I figured, I'll make something from them.

    I love all animals, but ya know what…I don't have a single cat fabric at all! I have a few scraps of doggies left over from a Boom, but, not a single kittie.

    Had lots of fun out with quilting friends for lunch today. We celebrated my birthday as well as Christmas! Came home with an armload of gifts. It's so fun to get together and we hardly talked about quilting at all! One of my gifts is a spectacular owl pillowcase Which is one of my favorite things. Owls are as adorable as they are wise.

    Happy Birthday Tlambing. Glad you had a fun day with friends. I don't have any kitty stuff either, maybe because I'm very allergic to them....Name:  stock-vector-vector-illustration-of-a-happy-birthday-greeting-card-129349514.jpg

    I'm going nuts having to wait to see what my partner wants me to try and make. Got a least part of it done, have a couple of table mats picked out and about 3-4 runners, so one of them should fit her favorite things...I hope.

    I would love to hoard cat fabric but df does not care for cats. It's a true show of how much he loves me that he let me have five considering before we got the first one he said he hated cats. I think df would draw the line for me at having cats and spending money on cat fabric. Lol. I would love to collect car fabric for him though.

    I'm collecting car fabric too! DH and DGS both would be willing recipients of something made with such.

    Has anyone had a chance to look at prospective patterns for our swap? I'm leaning toward a more contemporary pattern if it works. Really wanting to try one I've never done before. Can't wait to find out what my partners likes are……..I'm hoping some of my batiks will fit in there somewhere

    If you're on the fence wondering if you should jump in and join us, please do! The more the Merrier Ho Ho HO! We are open to new players until Jan 10th, well after Christmas and into the New Year. You'll have had plenty of time to recuperate from all of your holiday festivities.

    Happy Holidays!

    Tlambing -- how many have signed up thus far? I think it's going to be a really fun swap, so I hope more people take advantage of it.

    I'm going to try a pattern I've never done before -- I like trying new things and I like variety. Fortunately, a new pattern is easy for me, since I haven't done very many yet.

    Merry Christmas, happy belated birthday Teresa and well I hope that life is treating all of you so well. I am going to have a beautiful Christmas day. Early this morning they had a fire on the tv with music almost like sitting in front of the fire sipping coffee early on lol. not quiet. at all. but did I change the channel? no no I did not. figured what the heck no thinking required

    I hope you all pick wonderful patterns and those on the fence really have to check out the last couple table runner swaps. Tlambing put all the pictures together in one big photo collage and the selection and creativity was amazing. I am positive this will be the same. by tomorrow morning you should be able to breath again and well with that signing up will be so much easier!

    Quilty-Louise I haven't got mine in the mail yet. Now I want it to hurry up and get here! I want a Valentine's table runner, think that's going to be my favorite thing right now. One last chance to say Merry Christmas to everyone and hope your holiday was filled with family and friends, wonderful memories and good times. I'm looking forward to the new year and new experiences!

    Howdy Everyone! Hope you had a fantastic holiday! I'm smack in the middle of my holiday celebrations (they go all week). First was Christmas, then my B-day (today), then on Saturday is 12th Night, celebrated with many friends, and then last but not least, New Year's!!
    Looking forward to this swap, I missed out on all the fun fall swaps due to a major house purge/renovation, and family visiting from the east.
    I do not have any pattern in mind yet, there are so many to choose from!! I'll wait til I get my partner and find out what they would like before I pick one.
    I did hit a huge fabric sale at one of the local quilt shops tho!! 30% - 50% off everything in the store!! And of course another cat fabric followed me home....!!!!!
