    Kelly, I was in the service and I thought you were going to bounce that coin on your bunk to make sure it was made right! My kids used to have inspection on Sat Mornings and they thought I was crazy to make them have a bed made right!

    I love your Cowl Sharon Anne.

    Hope everyone is feeling better and looking forward to a great week! Tomorrow is no Mail! Darn, my SP box will be going out on Tuesday, it is going to a State that is East of me!
    Give a smile away today, someone you meet might need one!

    Oooof! Miss a couple of days and so many posts to catch up on!

    Love the sneak peeks! The cowl is gorgeous and looks so toasty!
    Ms Fear what a terrific little quilt -- I think you need to join the doll quilt swap immediately!

    The fair was fun. Soooo much work and it knocked me out for a day afterwards ... note to self ... do not wear flip flops when you're going to be on your feet all day. As for sales ... don't ask I guess we would have done better if we sold cheap junk from China ...

    I would except I am already overextended with projects until spring probably. There was a time I used to make wrinkly and fat dolls with pantyhose though! It's fun because you can really sculpt some great expression into their faces with needle and thread.

    We never had the coin thing. I think our TI was fearful of us as a group - we were his first flight as a solo TI and we were 48 wild and wooly women who wouldn't shut up. And then I spent a year in Korea and the coin-check was a HUGE deal because everyone wanted to get drunk but no one wanted to pay for it. Between my husband's coins and the coins I got, we have a pretty large collection displayed in the basement. But the only one I still keep on me at all times (in my bra, if you'd believe it) was the one he gave me when we got married.
    Mischief Managed.

    Awe, that is sweet! I was stationed in Germany and everybody drank there all the time! I remember a green horn asking as how old you had to be to drink. You just had to be old enough to carry your own bottle! But you learned quickly that if you wanted any kind of future you put a lid on it! I met some amazing local quilters who had never seen a woman in a Military uniform before. They took me under their wing and taught me some really cool hand stitches, of which I have forgotten most of them. But they were some fun quilters. The thing I remember most about them was that they used any kind of fabric they could find and made some pretty unusual quilts.

    I was all set to go to the PO this morning when I remembered it is closed! Drat! My husband, whose name is Christopher, says it is his Holiday. So we have been calling him Mr. Columbus. Oh well I remember when I was working any time you had a day off was a good day, especially if you got paid for it! So everyone who has the day off enjoy yourself!

    Steampunk, Goth, punk, renaissance, classy lady, scrub.... hehe.. I love texture, layers, weight, structure.. Some chainmail is surprisingly soft I love to run my hands through them while they drape when I go to the ren fest chainmail booths. I have a friend that does chainmail jewelry. I am also one of those people that reallyyy enjoys the weight of things, like I love when I get to wear the lead apron for X-rays, and I love really heavy blankets (thinking of making myself a weighted quilt) and I love the weight of chainmail.

I'm sure that will keep your SP very warm and I love the color! The fat kitty is cute! I'm going to finish my SP's home made gift this afternoon and its off to the PO tomorrow. I have to get it to her before she leaves!!!!! (yes that's another hint)

    Good evening everyone. I'm back - slowly typing with one hand - I used to be a speed typist, so this slow is really difficult. Went to the doctor this morning and, for the present, my broken shoulder doesn't need surgery. I'm to go back in two weeks and if new x-rays show improvement, it's healing and no surgery. If she doesn't like new x-rays, it's surgery to put a screw in. I'm opting for the no surgery. I have a new sling that is 'tied' to my body to keep the shoulder still. However, she did say I can sew! I'll just have to be very careful not to move the shoulder around.
    i'm talking cross stitch projects only. Of course, no lifting of anything. I broke the left shoulder and of course, I'm left handed - quickly becoming ambidexterous.

    SharonAnne, thanks for the info on shoulder therapy et al. I will be very careful - don't want the problems down the road. P.S. the cowl is simply gorgeous - wish it were mine.
    Have one more item to finish for my Sps - then both boxes will wend their way wherever they're going.

    OFF TOPIC:

    Okay Ladies.... I have a dilemma and I am not sure how I feel about it. Here is the deal....
    As you all know I have Meadow (who is a guide dog) and I want to bring him to the family Christmas this year and it is being held at dh's Aunt's home (she lives in a million dollar home and it looks that way as well) and I got an email today from Aunt's dh saying that we need to talk about the dog coming to their house for the family Christmas. We are planning on going to Chicago for a day as well during the vacation. We most likely be driving back and forth each day(not sure yet) So do I stand my ground and put my foot down and say that he is coming to bad deal with it. Or do I just say okay if he cannot come and not go to the family Christmas, and let dh go alone? What do you all of you think?

    Meadow is part of your family and especially now is not the time to leave him behind. Stand your ground and if his family can't deal with it don't go. I don't always go to my dh's family gatherings because they are always loud and festive and wears me out within minutes. Meadow is part of you now and if he isn't welcome then they are basically saying you are not welcome. I am sorry I hope this all works out for the best.

    Perhaps, she is just inquiring to his level of training at this time, I say talk to her. He is a well trained dog and she might not be familiar with all of the training. Share with her how essential is it for Meadow to be with you. After the discussion she have her arms open for your entire family to visit including Meadow. I think the communication is key and many family difficulties happen because we don't talk to each other. Then you can decide what you want to do if she is indeed wanting to say no guide dog but I will pray for the best.

    Susan, I agree - Meadow is now part of you and should be included. But, that being said, perhaps aunt is worried about fur and such associated with animals - bet she doesn't have any! She may not realize how much you depend on Meadow for every day living. I agree with Vicki - talk with her first before you make any decisions - then, if you "boycott" gathering, it's for good reasons. Come have the holidays with me in Tennessee - I'd love to have you, hubby AND Meadow!

    Does she understand that Meadow is "working" and not horseplaying? Maybe explaining the difference might be helpful. Maybe sugguesting that she will part of the training process, she would be helping in keeping you safe in the near future. Does she understand that Meadow will now be a permanent member of the family and will be expected to go where you do. That Meadow will be you safe in her home and in public in general. I think if you make her part of the training process - she might be more understanding. Offer to do a demo as part of the gathering so that all members actually see & understand the difference from working or pet dog. I don't know... just some random thoughts.
