    Just got back from a trip to JoAnn's. Used all my coupons, spent toooo much money, but did get a couple things to drop into my SS box. Kinda want to keep them for myself, but I won't. Guess I should have bought doubles. Oh well.

    Now time to go work on my ornaments. Along with a bunch of other things!!!! Maybe a little something for my SS will be in that mix too......... you never know.

    Yes, I did happen to see your felt, as I love to buy felt for my felted wool projects!! You are in luck though, as I already have the colors you have, so your felt is safe & sound in your secret place!! You will be surprised where & when you find it. I did find a little block square with a child's school bus printed on it & I thought it would make a nice baby quilt for my newest grand daughter to come in March. I was wondering where you got those cute little squares. I had fun looking around, but am so sorry that you didn't see me!!
    If you see someone without a SMILE, please give them one of yours!!

    why are you adding "felt"
    to a "felted wool" item.
    they are different things right ?
    does felt do something when washed like wool ??????

    Nope, it was the sedative for choice for high anxiety dogs when I worked in the vet clinic. For like storms and car rides.

    Good evening everyone. I'm back - slowly typing with one hand - I used to be a speed typist, so this slow is really difficult. Went to the doctor this morning and, for the present, my broken shoulder doesn't need surgery. I'm to go back in two weeks and if new x-rays show improvement, it's healing and no surgery. If she doesn't like new x-rays, it's surgery to put a screw in. I'm opting for the no surgery. I have a new sling that is 'tied' to my body to keep the shoulder still. However, she did say I can sew! I'll just have to be very careful not to move the shoulder around.
    i'm talking cross stitch projects only. Of course, no lifting of anything. I broke the left shoulder and of course, I'm left handed - quickly becoming ambidexterous.
    Both of my SS boxes are coming along. I need to wrap each item, but I have a friend who has said she will help me with that. I've finished my little handmade items for the boxes - so - guess I'm ready, but won't mail till mid-November. Don't want to give too much away, but one of you went online and gave me lots of info about yourself. My other SS hasn't posted much.

    Hope you heal up nicely... dgd broke her collar bone... she still has a bump but hopefully it'll even up as she is still growing. She has full range of motion so we're not worried.

    oh, i'm sorry! shoulder problems are difficult. hope it feels better soon. just take your time, and everyone important will understand. if there's anything you need me to buy, for myself, er... your santaee, i'd be happy to! you'll save postage, too! tomorrow i head to my closest lqs and see what i can find. i have lots of good info! and i tend to go my own way anyway, so there could be an elephant in someone's box, a little squishy, but very friendly! lol
    The only bad days are the ones you don't get.

    Broke mine twice as a kid, same one. It'll be fine. However, a later car accident caused some muscle tightness on that side that now occasionally makes it feel like the collarbone wants to snap again. So just tell her, no ramming that side into a vehicle dashboard and she should have no worries

    Vanogay, so sorry to hear about your shoulder, hope it heals faster than you think it will.

    Sulabug, when you were snooping in the studio did you finish those ornaments on my Embroidery machine for me? Did you play with the quilt on Queenie? Guess I'll find out when I go out there in a little while. Betcha didn't! Some help you are!! Guess I'll have to do it myself! I've managed to get a few handmades done for my Santaee. Haven't been shopping yet, will see what I can find at the quilt show this weekend before I tackle LQS & Joann's.

    Vanogay - sorry to hear of your shoulder issue!! Hope it heals up quickly and NO screw!!!! DH fell a few years back and tore his rotator cuff extensively, to the point where they can't fix it. No fun at all!!!! So I can feel your pain. Be very careful and do what the doc says....as we want you all healed and ready to tear your gift open on reveal day!!!!!

    Have you snooped the board about your recipient? Just type their board name into the search engine & see what they've been doing here. Also, a bunch of us have posted additional stuff here on this thread, go back & see if they have added to their profiles. Most any of us would love something handmade from someone else, cuz we know they put their love into it. Get creative! Just have fun & go with the flow!

    I'm in the same "boat" you are cindy, no clues at all. I've snooped and only found about 4 posts. Very cute and I like it doesn't help too much. Picked out FQ's and I keep looking at those wondering if it's the right colors or not. This box is turning out to be a maybe yes, maybe no, eeny, meeny, miney, moe. I've resigned myself to just go with it and put a BIG variety of colors, etc. maybe she'll like a few and if not....she'll have lots to regift to someone.
