    Enough said for now. Good night all.
    Is it me again?!!? I agree, I could rack up some frequent flyer miles, that would be awesome. And we have Tuesday Morning here as well, was my sister's favorite store. Hadn't been in there in awhile and went kinda recently and found the asian teapot I've been wanting for about half the price they normally retail. So exciting. There was a rug I REALLY wanted but didn't have the money for, but not really much else I was in love with. Didn't see any sewing related stuff there though.

    Hehe, I love to torment my critters with costumes! Sadly, they don't make them (at least nothing cute) in sizes to fit my dog, and the fatso cat is 20lbs so he can fit in some dog costumes.. hehe but the itty bitty is only 5 pounds so I can keep dressing her up for awhile. I just put her in the sacred panda costume for the first time a couple weeks ago. It was funny watching her zoom around backwards every time the hood fell forward.

    Good morning all! Starshine, you'd be surprised that there are some days in FL that one does need mittens. I'm in the south area and though they are shortlived I remember a cold front a few yrs back that for a few days it dropped to 29 in the morning! Granted they don't last long but wow I had gloves, hat, work jacket and all, minus boots since clearly we do not get snow. Everyone have a great day!

    I have a granddog who loves to get dressed up for Halloween. He goes to all the local businesses, and out of town businesses. I'd say he goes about 80 miles one way trick or treating. People call to see if he is coming, so they can get him a special treat. We started going to just local businesses and friends. We would put treats in his pumpkin for him to give out. Yes, he carries his pumpkin in his mouth! Now people ask for him to come and give him boxes and bags of treats. His costumes are too expensive, since he wears a 2xl. This will be his 8th year and he is going to be a dinosaur.

    Oh my your granddog sounds absolutely adorable. I do not have any pets at the moment as my 2 cats passed away but we have been discussing getting a small dog. My daughter has been begging for a dog for a long while and she just loves animals. I would totally dress my dog up for halloween if I had one. Some people may think its torture but what fun! Would love to see a picture of your granddog in his halloween costume. Please post...

    Marytoddliz, if you got me I dont think the you would want my critters wearing them seeing as they are outside farm dogs. Although I still wouldn't mind receiving the costume. I have a stuffed cow in my kitchen, I collect cows, that is about the size of a Chihuahua. I hope I spelt that right. Anyway, Fred the cow would look wonderful in the costume and I know for a fact that he wouldn't complain. As a matter of fact alot of my cow friends in the kitchen would love a halloween costume. So if you have me send it on over here and me and Fred will have a blast going trick or treating with the kids.LOL Look out crazy cow lady coming with her dressed up bull.LOL

    So.. I was stuffing my box minus the one thing I need to finish making.. oh sorry two things. 3 things? crap... And I ran out of room. hmm.. how to remedy that. I need my own box factory I think so I can just pick and choose boxes at whim. It'll be a box stash like a fabric stash. I think I need both.

    Soo.. Being the lazy person I am, I didn't print my email and bring it with me but I remembered the person's favorite colors.. and got fabric in those colors.. and NOT the colors they were looking for in FABRIC.. doh.. *sigh* there might be time to remedy this.. but there may not be space.. We'll see. Maybe I'll be kind and share my beloved Kona black... I'll have to see how much of it is left cause I need it for the project I'm making for her.

    I got my names too late to bring anything personal to them back from Spain, so I hope they like the little Spanish souvenirs I got them. If I add something from Scotland will the gifts be Spottish? ��

    I don't think I've seen any posts from #1 and #2 doesn't post a lot.They both live far away from me, but in different country's to each other.
    My #1 pal is making something that is made of fabric from the place where #2 pal lives.
    #2 is making something from the country #1 lives, from an area Elvis was fond of and has been quilting her whole life.
    Lang may yer lum reek. (I'm a knitter - hence - 'Knit-ette'. Confuses a lot of people!)

    Went shopping for my SP this morning and found a few more thing I could fit in that box and sent it out today so it should be coming to you shortly. Had so much fun shopping for you. You are east of me and you have meow's and woof's that live at your house.

    I thought about joining for 2.3 seconds and then said, "probably not this year," and this is why: I have consistently made quilts for auction to raise money for the wounded EOD warrior project every year - 2 per year: a small one in November and then a big holy-crap-that's-huge one in the spring. The one for the spring is turning out to be a bit more intricate than I'd planned and I've had to scrap and restart twice now. I am worried if I add a single extra sewing project to my plate, it'll never get finished. It is going to be made entirely of 4.5" signature squares with the name of each and every EOD (bomb squad) technician across all 4 services that have died and been put on the memorial wall. The putting the name on the block has been the problem part, but I think I've finally found a solution there. The blocks are white with black corners and it is going to be very solemn and stark looking - and powerful. The quilt I did in 2010 raised almost $8,000 at auction, and the money all goes toward scholarships for children whose parent was an EOD tech that has died or toward supporting wounded EOD technicians as they reintegrate into society.

    Yep, I think that MEADOW should get all of the boxes .... it would make His mommy very happy. Training is going well. We worked at night again tonight and I could not believe that I walked at night in my town and I was not really scared that I would miss something !!! It felt so good!

    I haven't seen my sp post before, but I'll give clues in case she is reading them. She wants something homemade,has doggies, and likes batiks.

    I'll post pics of granddog dressed up. Got to get new batteries for the camera.

    So I guess I'm not doing this month's swap. I asked on the 1st if I was too late to sign up, but never heard anything. So, I'll see you all next month.

    I think I should have borrowed Meadow. I was out walking yesterday (broad daylight) and tripped and fell. Yep, you guessed it - broke my shoulder. Got the humerus bone right at the shoulder. In a 'stabilizer' - at least it dtdn't require surgery or an overnight in the hospital. Made a three-point landing - got the right knee pretty bad, my left hand and elbow plus the shoulder. Ever saw "The Walking Dead"? That's what I feel like. Pretty sore this a.m.

    Now, Secret Pals - I think your boxes were mostly finished (thank goodness), but hubby will have to help with the finishing and the mailing. My boxes stay in the general vicinity of me. I'll try to get them done and mailed early next week as I am movuvg very slowly.

    Vanogay I hope you heal soon! This weekend I will be working on my SPs package. I'm really tired this morning and keep asking myself "Is it 5 o'clock yet?", and the answer at 7:30 am? Yes it is...SOMEWHERE ELSE! LOL! Everyone have a wonderful day!
