We'll be arriving on Sat. evening and leaving on Thursday morning. Then off to see new GS in Ohio! So excited!! But will definately be getting my sp pkg in the mail (hopefully today) before we leave.

    Good Morning friends..thanks for the advice... I am so standing my ground with Meadow believe me and dh is on my side. He reminded me this morning that the Uncle of dh has an OCD about being clean. So I hace come up with something to quell that one.. I am going to make him a puppy quilt that will go along with us for him to lay on. I also chatted with a friend last night about this and she suggested that I do a video of meadow and I working together at school, at walmart and all of the places I go...then we are going to send it to them. luvstoquilt thanks for the offer and it sounds wonderful. As christmas gets closer I will let you know.

    Tracy, I post all the time so I know that is not my cat! RATS!!! I love it..will you share the pattern name? I made my sister a pillow once with a cat on it..similar I think the bird was on the cat's head...I am going to go find that pattern if I can! Happy Sunday everyone.[/QUOTE]

    Hey, Luv's, just find a picture of a cat, I use childrens coloring books, and use the outline for your aplique!! I had a really good coloring book at one time with all kinds of animals in it that I used for my baby quilts. It is hard to find them these days, the coloring books seeme to be much more complex pictures!! Have fun!

    I think as I read about your dilemma, a key word popped out. FAMILY gathering. Meadow is part of your family. I say, if one member of your family is not welcome, then none are! Who do they think they are? Just cause they can afford such a fine house does not make them better than you. I am sure Meadow is trained to not chew on the furniture and to go to the bathroom outside. Heck, he's proboly more civilized than some kids I know! LOL Would they tell you not to bring your son? Ok, I'll get off my soapbox now. This seams to really have hit a nerve with me. Sorry if I over did it!

    Happy Quilting!

    Last month I did good guessing my SP but I don't see any clues this month that fit me yet I have a few items for my SP package but have much more to go. It's a hectic week for me as my parents celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary 3 days ago, I am celebrating my 15th wedding anniversary today and my sons birthday is on Thursday. Then we are going camping for the weekend on Friday. I will try my hardest to send my package out by Thursday but if not I will definitely send out Monday or Tuesday. I am having fun gathering things for my SP as her profile was pretty detailed and funny I must add. A small clue for my SP--->>>> You have repeat numbers in your zipcode. Have a great day everyone!

    Secret Santa Swap



    Thanks Brenda,
    I found the beginning thread (that is closed now) and read all the messages and realized that is the one that I joined last year. I enjoyed that swap so much and wanted to do it again but didn't remember that you had to sign up for it so early. I sad that I will not be able to join this year. I put a message in my email calander to remind me next year at the begining of Sept to start looking for the signup.
    Thanks for your help.

    Donna C.

    Hum, i have one set of numbers the same. I've seen a couple that could be me.
    Hint: My SP lives in a state that I have had 2 previous SP's from. Zip adds to 16.
    I went on a little Vacation this last weekend and found some good stuff!! Maybe some of it will wind up in this package. You just never know, now do you?
    I gotta tell you. The colors are ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL in Michigan. I was gonna say norther Michigan, but they are beautiful right here in the thumb area. I just love this time of year.

    Off topic alert!!!

    In case anyone is interested, I am hosting our 2nd annual quilt retreat at Camp Cavell on Lake Huron in Michigan. That is between Lexington and Pt. Sanilac. North of Pt. Huron, which is north of Detroit. If you get your map out, you will find it just about at the first joint. LOL

    Onalee, send a bus for me and I'll be there!

    Hint for my SP - I've had you once before. Or maybe you've had me. Or maybe I'm just confused.

    Just got home from the PO after standing in line forever! LOL! Guess I picked the wrong time to go. So SP you should have your pkg on Thursday. Now to get busy finishing up everything I'm taking to the Grandbabies. I was telling my friend today I think I have quilting ADD because I always seem to have more that one thing going at the same time and I skip around and do a little bit on one thing and then go do something else and then back and do some more. LOL!!

    Brenda and QuiltNut, you are both wrong. I have one number in my zip code that is repeated 3 times. That hint was definitely for me! My package - but I'll send a picture for you to look at, okay?
