    Can't wait to get my name...I don't always send homemade stuff but I always send a package I would love to receive...don't we all? I think I have been a "swapper" for about 2 years now so I guess I am not considered a "newbie"..I am sort of hoping for a newbie so I can send some of the tools I have collected (especially the ones I have bought over and over again!) I simply love the anticipation of my SP receiving the package I send and I can't wait to see what comes to me...it is all fun. I am already packing up some stuff and will add what I can on my SP's "want" list.

    I wish all of you were coming for dinner tonight. It is snowing here but not enough to mess up the streets and it is COLD so I am making a pot roast..it is definitely comfort food night tonight. I have a fire in the fireplace and my house smells like my grandmother is cooking in the kitchen.

    I am going to try this post a second time.

    Ohhhhhhhhhh yeahhhhhhhhh today is jan 31st. totally spaced
    out todays date.

    I can't wait to get my name.

    On another note yesterday I got 2 (of my many) subscription mags
    in the mail Quiltmaker and American Quilter.
    There is an ADORABLE tote bag pattern in QM that I am thinking of
    making for myself (to see how easy it is) pattern says the experience
    level is an intermediate. Depending on what it is will depend on how
    I deem my experience. For tote bags I will say beginner. LOL

    Of course I THINK I have the fabrics picked out (in my mind at least)
    that I will pull from my stash for this. Might even add a touch of embroidery
    to it.

    Here is a picture of the tote bag.

    antiquegirl just send a PM really quick, I'm sure you'll make it.
    QuiltyLouise I have made that bag, I just made it with the strips though out of batiks. Not hard to make. It did sew on velcro at the tope inside for closing it up. Didn't have any magnetic snaps. But it is very nice, think you'll like it.

    Reading the (de)tructions (I am good at detructing stuff when not
    following a patterns instructions properly due to misreading). I think
    that I am going to add LOTS of pockets inside and make the straps
    longer.
    As for a snap closure I have about 10+ of them laying around so I
    have no worries there.

    Yep I can see that bag in a nice range of yellows & purples. What do
    you think?

    Now to just get it DONE and not talked about.

    I am a newbie since December, so I hope you get my name. I am new to the secret pal swap. I missed the January SP swap, so I have been collecting since then in order to participate in the Feb swap. I am so excited. Ready for my name.
    Happy Sewing, Lisa E.

    I confess, I am a newbie, but LOVE to swap stuff. Already have a few things in the box to go to my secret pal. Totes are my downfall. Everytime there is one on the cover of ANY magazine I buy it. It has been a while since I made a tote though. 19 years to be exact! I made two. They were both bags for my DS. One was an everyday bag to take to daycare and the other was more dressy for church.

    Pot roast is my favorite comfort food.

    The weather is so screwy around here. Tonadoes the last two days and tonight it is starting to snow. Tennessee weather!!

    Stay warm.

    UPDATE: We saw the specialist who had the results of the scans and all the tests. I have to say God is so good. The hearing test resulted in some surprising results and results very different from Tuesday the 19th. Adam has better hearing in his left ear than his right and it is perfect hearing. Then the specialist showed us the scan and said he is speechless. The "tumor" is not a tumor, it is an abnormality in the bones behind his ear. I started to cry with relief. He said he would like to complete another scan in 6 weeks, but he is sure. They want to keep him on the Topomax since he has not had a headache since starting the medication. In addition, he needs to see the Ear, Nose, and Throat doctor to deal with the balance issue. I AM ONE HAPPY MOMMA. Thank you everyone for your prayers and lifting my family up. I cannot tell you the joy I am experiencing.

    Good morning all. Its not a normal warm day today in SWFL. Woke up to 43 degrees. Now I understand that there are many who are suffering worse cold weather than I am but this isn't normal for us here so its a bit chilly for us. Hav4boy I'm so glad to hear that the outcome was great on your son! Knitette, pray tell, where did you get that pattern? Those look so cute to make! Everyone have a great day, TGIF!!!

    The pattern is 'Bridget's Bagettes' - there's three sizes. I made a tartan one for some lucky (?) SP this morning.
