    2) You might live in one of the New England States and then again you might not.
    3) You celebrate all holidays

    Pal #2
    1) Your least favorite candy is Black Licorice
    2) Like me you love K-cups
    3) One of your favorite colors is Pink

    I could be either one of these, especially #2

    Wow Krystyna I hope that doesn't make you think of me! LOL! I agree scary!
    DH went to pick up Chinese Food we live too far out for delivery, I'm home on the computer and trying to decide what to make for my SP as she has been sewing far longer than my over 2 yrs. Hard to decide, maybe a tote or mugrug?

    Olive Garden was wonderful. We like it as much as Ruby Tuesday because we fill up on salad and bread as a meal and then bring the entree home! We did not bring the rabbit. We were afraid that my SP might show up and that would not be good. Plus he would have eaten all the salad. I'm making him stay outside tonight and hoping he runs away.

    I think you should make her a nice coat.

    My pal also lives pretty close to me, and she has no pets.
    Never look down on anyone, unless you are helping them up.

    Ruby Tuesday is another of my favorite to eat at here in town. Unlike Olive Garden I don't have to go to Savannah to eat at Ruby Tuesday.

    More Clues

    SP #1 - There are several cities in your state with the name of your city.

    SP#2 - Your city and my city have something in common! Figure out what it is!

    I went shopping yesterday for my SP. She doesn't specify anything
    that she really "wants/needs" so I purchased stuff that I am hoping
    she will like.
    Since she has an embroidery machine this is going to be "fun" sending
    her stuff for that use.I HOPE to have my box in the mail EARLY this week
    but most of that depending on if I can get something made just for her.

    More clues:

    1) You are ALMOST 2000 miles from where I live.

    2) You live near a "body" of water of some sort, it could be a lake, pond
    mud hole or ocean who knows.

    3) It looks like it will be a nice sunny day where you are at. Wish it was
    going to be that warm here too, but alas this IS Colorado, the Bipolar state.
    (because it can't decide if it is going to be cold or nice weather for January).

    4) Your City has approximately 115 square miles.

    5) Some of the research I did on your city cites it to be the one of the safest
    cities in your state for a population of over 100,000 residents.

    That is all the clues for now.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


    Now an OFF TOPIC grump.


    I'm soooo MAD and sad because we have to take our SECOND
    Keurig brewer back to Costco.

    The first quit brewing after 1 week. Got another new machine worked
    great for about 2 weeks then it started getting to where it work display
    "Prime" and flash the lights.

    Tim has been threatening to take the dang thing back, well after it did the
    prime thing AGAIN today (got to where it did it after EVERY cup brewed) he
    said enough is enough. So he boxed it all up to return.

    Not sure what he is going to do next, but I do KNOW he said no more Keurig
    models. He is looking at maybe getting a "Mr. Coffee" brand.

    Guess it is back to the standard ole coffee makers.

    Quilty-Louise,
    I have a Keurig and one thing I found out was that if you use the k-cups, the holder to the k-cup (the black part) make me lodged. If you check the manual there is a small trick to use a toothpick into the "puncture" part and then clean it. My keurig did the same as yours and I never had a problem since. And yes the utility fabrics are on sale at Joanns> May go today for that purple paisley one hope I can find it!

    I called the company about my coffee pot because it was getting slower with each Kcup..they told me to take a paper clipand poke it thru the holes because it likely had a coffee ground stuck there. I did that and it works perfectly...I also "descale" it when I get around to doing that...the book gives specific instructions. Go get another on, Quilty. Remember the 3rd time is the charm!

    Krystyna..that animal gives me nightmares! I hope he can't run all the way to Illinois!!!

    qn4e - yeah we would clean the upper and lower "needle" area on
    a regular basis.

    I just got to where sometimes you could brew 1 cup of coffee and
    work on the machine (until said cup of coffee was cold) just to get
    it to working again.

    This morning it took me 40 minutes of removing the reservoir washing,
    scrubbing, and doing every "trick" the manual and website talked about
    doing. When I got it to work again I had to put my cup of coffee in the
    nuker to heat it up again. TIm never did get his cup of coffee he was "out
    of the mood" to drink any at this point.

    We didn't even have it for 2 months yet and it was the "Platinum" B70
    model (not the low end model either).

    Tim refuses to get another one. He is the type of person that he
    will ONLY give a product 1 "do over" if he has to take it back a
    second time he is done with it completely.

    After 12+ year with him I have learned when he got into THAT frame
    of mind to just let it be and go along with him.

    He pulled my little 5 cup makers out (good thing we didn't get rid of it)
    and I now have a full (5 cup pot at least) of fresh HOT coffee waiting for
    me.

    This swap is so much fun. I am a newbie to the swap, I went shopping last night, now I would like to make my SP something special.

    Clues:

    My SP live northwest of me, somewhere really cold.

    The letter M in the States name.

    does not like chocolate

    I hope she likes what I send.
    Happy Sewing, Lisa E.

    One shirt repaired for Tim (told him NEXT time I have to repair that
    SAME shirt (4th or 5th time now) that it was going to my scrap bins.

    Need to get back to doing some sewing for another project, need make
    a little something for my SP I like to do "embroidery" stuff but since my
    sp has an embroidery machine I am thinking of making something else
    that she likes.


    Since I am now "flying" on a caffeine buzz now would be a good time to
    sewing (providing I can sit still that long).

    Have fun everyone.
