    Yep I agree!!!!!

    Normally Tim is not a big football fan, but he watched the Broncos
    play this year because of Manning, and he IS going to watch the
    Super Bowl today.

    With him doing that he BEST (if he knows whats good for him) leave
    me alone in my fabric and sewing rooms.

    My DH got me a coffee maker for Christmas. It is a Hamilton Beach the Scoop Model #49981. You make one cup at a time, AND you use your own coffee. Cost about $60, good reviews, and has been used at least 2x a day since Dec. 25. You should look into it. I like mine alot!

    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.
    Sew many Quilts.......so little time!

    Placed an order from Nancy's Notions last night for my SP. Estimated arrival to me is Feb 6 if they ship on Monday. Hopefully I will be on time. I am OCD when it comes to deadlines. Well, if you talk to my DH, he would say EVERYTHING!

    CLUE#4: Coffee

    I made a mistake in my CLUE #2: She DOES love chocolate from milk to dark

    and does anyone else get annoyed that JoAnns doesn't consider things "notions" that should be "notions"? and when you ask them what are they if they aren't notions, they have no idea

    What notions are you talking about? I know many employees don't even sew that work there. I don't rely on anyone for help when there, but I have been known to ask other customers if they are quilters if I need advice or another opinion. I go for the sales and coupons, and just know I won't get frills when I go.

    Yes Brenda, last year they had 2 color of the 12 12 inch square storage boxes on sale in the fabric section-these were on sale, and a 3rd color of the very same style box in a different color on a shelf end on the other side of the sewing machine area that was not on sale because it was in the craft section -for scrapbooking. I wanted one of each color so I used my coupon for it as I didn't really need it for something else that day. I'm sure they have a former government forms creator now writing coupon policy.

    K~ I wish I had taken Da -da code class, can't decipher your clue, and btw what color is support ribbon?

    Saw a few promising clues, I like Chocolate, I like coffee and teas. And I do like black licorice so I know I'm not their sp.

    My sp is in the states --somewhere in the middle. I'll have to do some research on her fabric preferences. And she list a favorite beverage that is not usually listed.

    Krystyna I thought maybe you made up the "web page" for the squirrel pants but checked it out and it is real. Great find. Only you would have found it I think.

    Knitette I think the monkey couple will be glad to have your monkey over once the have their baby monkey, as a toy companion-don't let him go.

    Wow, we left Thur to go camping in the N Ga mountains, we do it every year. I came back to 4 pages, bunches of clues that aren't me, at least I don't think they are....and an attempt to warm up. I have NEVER been so cold in my entire life. One of the electric heaters we brought just up and died. The other couldn't keep up, ran constantly. We even used the propane heater to suplement. We were only trying to heat a VW bus, not a lot of area...even the cat didn't want to go out.

    Got my SP name, she lives in a state I've never visited, likes chocolate and fabric, has a pet, doesn't look like K's pictures as far as I know, at least I hope not.

    Keurig does make good on there machines. I first got mine back in 2009 and less than 7 months later had an issue with it. Called Keurig and they promptly had me send i the kcup holder and they sent me a new one,,,,,, same model. Well about 7-8 months later the same thing happened and again a call to them and they replaced it. This time they sent me a newer updated version of same model and have had it for about 2 years and just gave it to my son last fall and I purchased the Cruisant KCup because I preferred that model and brand and its awesome.

    DO NOT GIVE UP on Keurig cause they do make good on their product. It just happened the one I got was a batch that year that something was wrong with it and they have since fixed it.

    Mr Coffee also now has the kcups and contracted with Keurig for it.

    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).
    B70 is the very one they have had problems with. Don't give up on it. Also when you descale leave the vinegar in it over night or for several hours and like others have said use the paperclip to get those holes unplugged.

    You can use your own coffee with the Keurig as well. Just get the cup holder and put coffee in and brew.

    Love my Keurig. It was one thing we were able to save. I use K cups when they're on sale but also use my own coffee since I like a potent brew. I usually end up adding some Bustello to whatever dark brew I'm using. There is a new one - Obsidian - love it - but can't find it often.

    Linda R, I love that little pup in your avatar.

    Rosemary, thanks for sending that little pal my way! Love the bow tuck. That was on my to do list - but lost the pattern. Oh well.
