    Thank you for doing that....at my house you wouldn't have to go far and you would find plenty. I like to think its because I live across from a farm field and it blows over but deep down I know better!

    [QUOTE=buslady;5592659]Sharon, every time I see your avatar, I smile. You look so sweet in that picture!! I think your hair is almost exactly the same color as mine. I love it.[/QUOTE

    What a kind comment, Onalee. Thank you. Naturale isn't so bad really. There's a great website for grey haired women about styling, self-esteem, etc. Actually, I'm more happy inside than I ever was when I was younger. It's a good feeling - kind of like sweats, comfy shoes, or a cozy quilt.

    Luvstoquilt (Sharon) - cranberry red, fire engine red, sparkly red. Just put it on your profile in case I get you in Nov. Thank you for the well wishes for the mini-quilt contest, but I did not put nearly the time or effort into mine as did a couple of others. I will vote for one of two I particularly like, once I make the tough decision (and it won't be mine). Vanogay - I'll bet yours is one of the two I really like!! Good luck. I learned something from this contest and that was my main reason for entering. It was well worth my time to try and I'm happy for whoever wins. I have made less than 10 quilts (all but one is a wall quilt) and have never finished a full sized one (it's a UFO and only needs to be quilted - lol), so this was a good experience.

    To the other Cowl Requestor - Sorry, I did not have time to go back and re-read and my memory forgot who posted, but I did remember someone else mentioned wanting one - maybe you will be my SP next month. Stranger things have happened.

    Ana - Love your pumpkin. You make the cutest things.

    Judith - So sad that your beloved baby daughter was called home so early. I'm sure her light is shining upon all who loved her.

    Quercus - Thoughts and prayers for the precious new child in your life.

    Mooretll - I hope the CT scan reveals what is causing your issues soon! Thoughts and prayers for you, too. Your DGS is going to be a heartbreaker someday. Those eyelashes are amazing!!

    Nexxus - Miss you, and am sorry you are not able to play any pumpkin games this month. Hopefully you'll be back in time to play reindeer games next month.

    And to everyone on here - you are all amazing people and I'm so glad I was directed to this board. Hope all your packages arrive soon, although bench sitting is fun, too.

    Thanks ladies for the wellwishes. I started a new med for my RA and they think that is what has caused all of this,so no more med. Thanks for the comments about my grandson he looks just like his Mama at that age all but the green eyes. He is my heart. I do feel better this morning so keeping my fingers crossed that it was just the med.
    I love to collect roosters of any kind. I also love embroidery thread for my machine. My favorite color is purple and i am just a plain old country girl.lol

    Lots to read today. Unfortunately, old age has made it impossible for me to remember from one post to the next who said what. LOL Seriously, though. To all that are hurting or sick, best wishes for speedy relief. This is the place I come when I need cheered up. Aren't grandkids the best? I have said many times that if I had knows that being a grandma was gonna be this much fun, I'd have done it first. LOL I know, it don't make sense, but that's me. The other day I saw or heard someone say that grandkids are our reward for not kolling our kids. I guess that fits better. The packages this month have been just great. I am "on the bench" enjoying coffee and a cinnamon raisin muffin slathered in real butter. Mmmmmmmmm. Must be lunch time, I'm getting hungry. LOL

    Well, it's lonely on the bench. Pass the hot chocolate, please. Mail has run for today and I'm still waiting for one package to arrive. With my broken arm, I can't sew to pass the time, so it seems like waiting forever. Yesterday, I loosened the shoulder bindings so I could use my hand somewhat and did some hand sewing on a quilt binding. I paid the price later in the evening, though. Don't think I'll do that too often. Hope this thing heals quickly.

    Everybody's packages are amazing! I am anxiously waiting to hear that my SP got hers. I am watching every day for the mailman to come. It's like waiting for Christmas

    Off Topic: My sweet little doxie, Joey, had to have oral surgery today. He had 8 teeth pulled. It was quite expensive. But, when I arrived to pick him up and settle my bill I was told that someone came in and anonymously paid $100 of it! What a blessing that was for us! I am thanking God for that special angel!!
