    All signed up and already started putting stuff in my new sp box.
    So glad you're back Krystyna, we missed you!
    SharonAnne I'm praying for you and all of us for a better and Happier New Year!
    To all those hurting- praying for a speedy recovery!
    Happy New Year to all! (We'll be spending ours at home with 3 of our Gkids - best time ever! LOL!)

    Sharon Anne, how sad. I hope they find their way and even without becoming their caretaker, I know you will do what you can to help them become self-sufficient. I've always thought you had such a kind and warm face, so I think I know why it was your door that poor young man knocked on.

    SharonAnne, so sorry for the ill fates to be shining on you recently. 2013 really can be a better year - for all of us. And yes, I do believe in the theory of the threes - but then again, I believe in some voodoo as well (being from New Orleans, that's not surprising!)
    Have a wonderful and prosperous 2013 everyone - eat your beans and bring in lots of money! (Use beano for the gas)

    No beans! Eat herring if you want luck in the New Year!

    Does anyone want/like a "themed" kind of SP gift for January? I am
    talking about something themes such as "snowflakes" snowmen" "icicles"
    etc...


    Just trying to get ideas of things to send in the package when I get my name.

    Now onto something else...................



    On this cold day in the mountains; thought I would share a picture of
    Shadow Mountain Lake (iced over of course), and than I am going to
    warm you up with a nice toasty fire.

    The chair I am sitting in is 5 feet from the fireplace and it feels so good.

    ENJOY!!!!!

    Louise, reminds me tooooo much of what it was like when we lived in colorado Springs. The back of our house faced onto the 15th fairway of a golf course, so where your lake is our open space was - in the winter very much alike - from inside the warm house. I'm glad we're in Tennessee now - cold days, but nothing like you're experiencing (4 degrees, brr, brr)

    Anything is fine for me seeing neither of my December packages arrived. I did hear from one SP a couple of days ago however and she says she'll be able to post soon.

    Have a great Hogmanay everyone! Here's hoping 2013 brings you everything you need and some of the things you want.

    Wishing you all a wonderful New Year. Despite all the bumps in the road, life is good -- especially when you have wonderful quilty friends like all of you!

    Knitette, I like that Hogamany thought - a wish to have what you need and some of what you want. What more could one wish for? Hope your packages come soon!

    Here's some herring for luck! I couldn't catch and pickle my own this year, so store bought will have to do.

    When I lived in NC my grandma used to make black-eyed peas,
    collard green (or she preferred polk salad and that stuff STINKS),
    hog jaw (cooked and tasted just like bacon) and something else
    but I can't remember what the forth item was that was cooked.

    We use ham hocks in the black-eyed peas to season it but here lately (around here anyway) there isn't much meat on the hocks so I use my ham bone from Christmas with plenty of ham on that bone still!

    We eat black-eyed peas! You enjoy the Herring! Happy New Year everyone! A neighbor is coming over after while and we will have a drink or two and I am pretty sure she will go home before midnight and I will turn in. I am almost finished putting together a Christmas quilt I started over a year ago. If I don't finish before Leemarie gets here I will finish tomorrow. I am really thrilled with myself! (Another UFO is going to bite the dust!!!)

    Sharon Anne I am so sorry about your neighbors. I wonder if there is some sort of "half way House" that could help them. They sound like they are unable to make it on their own. Sorry about your uncle, too. And I do believe in "3's".

    Vanogay I would love to hear about the VooDoo...that sounds pretty interesting for sure! I do love New Orleans!!!

    Lori I know you must be having a grand time with your family. I hope you are feeling better and getting lots of hugs!

    Krystyna if you get my name just send me a card...that will be all I need and I will love it!

    Be well everyone..stay safe and sober!!! (LOL)

    This is a picture of the Stonehaven Fireball Swinging ceremony, about 15 miles from where I live, held every Hogmany. It's believed to have originated as a purification ceremony to ward off evil spirits.
