    My SPals zip adds to 17. I bought candy for her today.

    Krystyna I will come and live with you when you move south. The older I get the less cold I can stand. I am freezing all the time. My home is usually about 63degrees. Heating oil is too expensive. Yes we are expecting 12-18 inch of snow, if the storm turns back in we could get 2-4 ft. The wind is going to blow up to 60 mph as well. That Northeast wind blowing off the water will be extremely cold. I am sure we will lose electric as well.

    I live up here in the cold north, we are not going to get the bad weather that you are going to get. Just wanted to say "stay safe, praying for you to come out OK."

    We are preparing for the storm, not going to be good for us since it is going to be a coastal storm. DD and I were suppose to go to a quilting retreat this weekend, but the hotel canceled it. The hotel was concerned about snow removal and the loss of electric. The hotel was worried about our safety. DH went aboard his lobster boat to add some security lines. Everyone stay safe.

    Oh Lori she is sure a cutie!
    Krystyna hope everything goes well. My sister has been through that twice now (yep twice) they love living on the water so they've had to almost totally rebuild both times. This last summer they rented a storage unit away from the water and moved their furniture when we were suppose to have a storm and luckily it went further west of us. But I sure do not envy you all of that paper work. Keeping you and your husband in my prayers that it all goes smoothly for you! I've got family in both Chattannoga, Tenn. and Ring Gold, Georgia I'm sure you would like either place.

    Tonight was my late night to work to 8. Tomorrow I work 9-2. Thought I was gonna be able to come home and play in my corner, but just heard from the MIL. She is planning a visit this week end. She lives in Lake Lure, NC. So needless to say, tomorrow afternoon will be dedicated to CLEANING. Sat. I had already made plans to have girls day with DD, neice (who is 7), my sister, and mother. There is a Tea Shop that has an amazing menu. That is where we are going to have lunch. Then its back to my brother's to play with my neice for a while. MIL is going to tag along for lunch. We haven't planned out the rest of her visit yet. I do know she will have others to visit as she didn't make it for the holidays.

    I hope to get to JoAnn's for a few more things to go in my package before it heads out to the west coast sometime on Sat. Nancy's Notions arrived today and I finished the little tote. Hope to be postal on Monday.

    I received a wonderful package from LindaR. It was a goodie. I receved the most awesome handmade bag (in bright colors) loaded with items. I got pins, chaulk, a great sticky not pad, a file, tans and browns quilting squares, scissors, thread, snowman lifesavers and batting seam tape.


    My son was so happy to get the chocolates, but brought them back to me and said, "I think these are for you." They were quilting squares. I was ROFL.


    Thank you for a wondeful SP package LindaR.

    I'm glad you like it Wanda Lou!! I had all those white buttons from that estate sale and since I don't do much with white, I figured you would with your crazy quilts. I know nothing about those jars, a friend was thinking one time to collect because they are supposed to be worth money, but apparently not. lol I hope the tiny white on white is tiny enough too. Have a great day!

    The blue ones do hold value, the last one I bought I paid 10.00 for it, I am still looking for a number 13 those are hard to find, because in the alcohol making days they broke them into pieces, they thought they were bad luck... but one of these days I will find one.
    I am so happy with my package... thank you so much.

    SP HINTS:
    My SP seems to be fairly new at this swap.
    I haven't really seen any posts on here from them except maybe to say they were in for the swap.
    Zip adds up to 19 in normal math, not krystyna's.
    Has not even been a member of this QB for a year yet.
    Does not have any pets.
    New to quilting.
    Has 3 vowels and 3 consonants in their name.
    Lives south of me.

    That is all! Will get pkg early next week and is a medium flat rate box!

    No. Sad to say, they are NOT paying replacement value at all. So far I've gotten about $70,000. About $15,000 went for the rip out demolition. Not the demolition of the house. The bank has the rest of it. Each engineer will be about $5,000. The lawyer is getting a LOT that he didn't earn. The money is flying out the door at a mind boggling pace with nothing to show for it. I got $6100 for a new roof and new garage door and roof. Maybe I could get them made out of cardboard at that price. Not even going to talk about the contents settlements. The bottom line is you have to fight for every last penny.

    Lori, what an adorable little girl! How could you bear to leave her?

    Jill, I don't care for centipedes either. Stink bugs? Hmmm ... I'll have to rethink the south! A friend of ours lives in Stone Mountain, GA and my sister-in-law is in Smyrna, TN. Both love where they are. But then I used to love where I was/am. As long as my son is willing to relocate, I'm good.

    Now to figure out the important things - is there a Joann nearby? A church? Decent health care? A low cost exterminator/trapper -- just in case there are unpleasant critters!

    SP, hoping to make something for you today before the power goes out.

    Everyone in Nemo's path -- be careful! Stay warm!

    Linda, how beautiful!
