    Have all the appliques traced for your row scrapper. It is going to be so cute. So glad I went thru some old magazines because I ran across an advertisement page and it jumped out and screamed "Make something like me!" Just what I was looking for. Good thing it does not bite otherwise I would have lost my nose for sure. LOL

    Hi everyone, sorry I have been MIA for so long ... I'm sure you all heard about Sandy ... while we were minimally affected, a lot of our friends weren't, so I had lots of 'visitors' - then there was Newtown, a lot of difficulties there too, one of my co-workers lost a child, a teacher in my town lost a child and my mentor knew another child ... it happened only a few miles from where we work. It's still very real and raw for a lot of us here, especially when I hear that some people doubt that it even happened. Believe me, it happened.

    Then to top it off, my left rotator cuff is acting up - again - and I apparently tore my right meniscus ... I have an MRI Wednesday and follow-up with the Dr. on Thursday ... keep your fingers crossed that it's only a bad sprain, since my COBRA runs out on January 31st and not sure when I can get more insurance (good news {?!?!} is that come December I qualify for Medicare ... yeesh) - today is the first time I've been down in my girl cave since mid-October. At least now I'm on some pain meds so I can move around better, can even leave the cane home sometimes. Whoever said 'growing old ain't for sissies' knew whereof they spoke! Sure wish I had gone for the extended warranty

    Good news is that I hope to be able to get caught up within the next two weeks and mail off my row and Wanda Lou's sooner rather than later - Scrapper, my dear, since I've stuck with my idea to do a flying carpet of blocks, i.e. places I've been or want to visit, you can get a head start on your blocks to add to my row if you want. I really am so sorry, Life with a capital L has definitely been dumping on me lately, I'm sure it will be better going forward, can't get much worse, right?

    Hope everyone had great holidays, I'm still trying to figure out how I managed to not send out any Christmas cards for the first time since I was 16! Meanwhile, I'm down here in the basement, starting to stitch together the blocks I had started before everything went to hell in a handbasket and working out in my head what I'm going to do to add to Wanda Lou's bookshelf ... if I made it to look like my bookshelves here it would be stuffed with books and a few doodads - so it will have to be imaginary, maybe I'll look in some magazines to see what other peoples bookshelves look like ... mine are just too messy to use as inspiration.

    Hugs and Happy New Year to all, I will be back up to speed soon, I promise.

    Holy smokes MdmSewnSew, you have been dealing with a full deck, or is that half a deck, not sure. Been getting the short end of the stick as the phrase goes. Hang in there girl. You are making it and that is what matters. We are pulling for ya.

    don't fret over the Christmas cards, I few years back I reduced my list and you know I don't think anyone noticed.

    In my house if the kids and husband don't do the cards, then they don't get sent. This last year they were late and some did not get one. I always figure if they don't get a Christmas card, the least I can do is make sure they get a Valentine's card and no less than an Easter one if I don't get them any sooner. By then I can get some made up with my rubber stamps or quilting. One year I missed those Christmas cards so I made little quilted heart cards and mailed those instead. They notice it then because it is not overwhelmed with all the other Christmas stuff.

    Thank you for your kind words, everyone, I will be working twice as hard to catch up, don't want to let anyone down - at least no more than I already have. Hugs to everyone!

    So how we doing. Mailing is this week for us all. I am nearly done with scrappers and loving it so much. I have to finish cutting up some winter snowmen and of course a winter kitty, applique them down and send. Found my black thread so will hopefully get this done tonight if my lunch goes as well as I hope and I get them finished cut out. I am so trying not to crowd out the scene I am making. Will you want a look when done scrapper?

    My theme is home sweet home where each row represents a season: spring summer autumn winter. Each person can do whatever season is available when they rcv the row.

    Now I am thinking I need to change my background, it is not quite right with the appliques, hides them. I promise to snap a shot before sending on.

    Wanda Lou, you may kick my butt if you like, but you will have to wait till after the back ache and flu have finished their tour. I am down 80%. I barely make it thru work, yes, I am going to work still with the flu. I am the only person in the office and if I am not there, the office is not open. Boss has been out of town and the guys are finishing up a job. I get home and it is straight to bed so I can do it again. So sorry I am running behind. I have all the appliques cut out and ready to go on background, just haven't had energy to finish it. I am hoping I will be able to finish this weekend and get in mail on Monday. I am doing winter so you can pick spring or fall, unless Qbee gets back with us. I promise to post photos when done for you Scrapper.

    QM it's all good, I will start working on Fall.
    I have not mailed your top to Mdmsew yet, It's going out Monday.
    I hope you feel better soon, drinks lots of fluids and try to rest.

    Feel like I am surfing for sure. Was in bed till Super Bowl then was corner of sofa then back to bed. Feeling less tired, but ugh to the cold stuff. This is the second bout with this. Sure hope it is done soon. I may push self to finish row. Been working on computer virus at office all day. Cell phone is slow but works.
