    hi there,
    I don't have my name yet, but someone may have mine so I figured I would post some more about me. I don't remember what I put on the sign up sheet so if it is duplicate just ignore. I will turn 37 on Nov. 3. I have been married for 8 yrs to a wonderful man who lets me "take over" the living room for my sewing area. I two boys, ages 12 and 6 (7 this month), and both have a form of autism called asperger's syndrome. so anything to do with autism awareness is welcomed. I know that joann's caries the autism puzzle piece material. could always use more of that. I make purses out of it and each purse requirs a yard and a half. I also have two four legged babies, Katie is a 2yr old chiauwawa(sp) who could always use a winter sweater (size medium) and then we have Dobbie who is an old wire hair terrior mix. They both love all treats.
    I am new to quilting, have only been doing it since June of this year. because of this I do not have much of a fabric stash or supplies stash. I have not done paper piecing or applique' yet, but would love to try something easy. I love all patterns except one that have round pieces in them. Not ready for that yet. As far as fabric choices go, I love Batiks and tonals. Don't care for black or neon fabrics. Can't wrap my brain around them. As I mentioned before, I make purses and would love some light/dark combos to make them with. I sew on a baby lock sophia 2 and could always use needles. would love a walking foot that fit my machine. embroidery thead is always welcome as I don't have much. I have plenty of sewing thread. I bought a large lot on ebay and it will last me a good while.
    we are a snake eating family so snacks are ok. I think that should be a good start. If I think of more I will post.

    Still in the hospital with Shea, she had the wound vac placed yesterday, we are now waiting for insurance approval on the 'home vac' so she can be released. They are also waiting on results back from her blood tests / cultures to see if anything is growing so we will know if she has to stay in the hospital for IV antibiotic or if we can go home and administer them ourselves. Countinued prayers are greatly appreciated!

    Laquita, I'm so sorry to hear Shea isn't doing well. Our prayers are always with you, especially Cindy's! She's enjoying her retirement & just lounging around doing nothing but watch me sew, cook, etc. She's become my other shadow! Where ever I go, I've got the two of them right there with me, matter of fact, she's right here within arms reach right now! I pray that Shea keeps improving & gets to come home soon!

    Give away too much info??? Hmmm...well I'm sure my secret santa will be glad to know that their identity will never be given away early from me. My secret santa will not know until reveal day, I hope. However I do know that my secret santa is a quilter....oh darn...did I give away too much info??? Me and my big mouth.

    Just got back from shopping. Almost didn't make it. Right after I walked into Joanns, the power went out and came right back on. Didn't think much of it, but when I got ready to check out, found out the cash registers and all the phone lines were down. They finally got the registers back on line, but you had to pay cash for your purchases. Usually I don't have cash, today I had $40.00 in my purse. Had to reduce my purchases, but was able to get the little things I wanted for my Secret Santa. Oh, another hint - she has a number in her name.
