    I've been telling y'all how lucky I am with a wonderful hubby helping me with so much since I broke my arm - well, I'm even luckier than I thought. The lady I walk with (No, she didn't push me down that fateful night...) anyway, my friend came over today to help me wrap my Santa boxes. All the stu--er--gifts are totally wrapped - BUT, she wrapped the bells so they wouldn't jingle all the way. So, no noise from ny boxes. I plan to mail them right around 1 Nov so thet'll sit here safe for another week or so. And one of them might get wet crossing the pond.
    Reveal Day is Dec 9th, right? I have it circled on my calendar. No fear - they will be marked from Secret Santa

    Well gang, I'm home from the quilt show for the day. What a time we all had! Quite a few people came to see the quilts! I was surprised! I did get to meet one of our fellow board members too! It's sure good to meet some of the other members!
    Now for ribbon results. My French Braid took 3rd place & my Mystery Train Ride#2 took Honorable Mention. The entire class where Texas Butterfly Ballet was entered wasn't scored...no ribbons on any of the entries, so our co-ordinator is going to go back over the sheets & possibly call the judge tonight to find out what happened (she had a quilt in that category too!). Deep in the Heart of Texas & Black & White Orion didn't get anything. But that's where the bulk of the entries were too. There's some awesome quilts on display there. If you're in the area, come on by!
    I did pick up a couple of items for my Santaee too. I think they'll really appreciate them...or at least I hope they will. I already have my jingle bells in the box so the mailman can guess too!

    Well, I'm off on a shop hop tomorrow! First time I've been able to go on one, and I'll be looking for some fat quarters and a few other goodies to go in my box! I invited a lady from church who does some quilting. We've never done anything together so I'm hoping the day goes well and maybe it will be the start of a quilting buddy friendship. I've always wanted someone to do quilty things with!

    I see you are from Florida...Chocolate melts very quickly there..Since you wouldn't want that to happen creating waste, let me know where to meet you..I am in FL too, so I am perfectly capable of meeting up with you and helping keep that chocolate fresh and not melted
    Pat, I can eat the chocolate way before it starts to melt...there's also the refrigerator! I like my chocolate cold!!! Just call me a little chocolate piggy! If you're a chocoholic too, bet you don't share either.

    Some sort of copyright issue I believe. It's now called Red Crinoline Quilts.

    Hi all, Everyone is just having too much fun. Just wanted you all to know that I have been very, very good. If chocolate is coming my way no worry about being melted I can always put it in the frig. to get hard again or use my spoon. I don't think that my box can hold any more. I got the biggest box at the post office, may have to use another box. I keep seeing things that I want to put in the darn thing. My DH says that I can stop anytime but this is so much fun. Some of the things I have put in the box are things that I have never used or things that are duplicates. Is that bad to do that? I'll be watching to see if my SS posts anymore about what she likes. Is it you? Take care all. BrendaK

    I am really anticipating my many boxes - well, two or three - if they're overstuffed and you need more than one. PM me and let me give you my address once again just in case. Since my sewing has been cut short with this broken arm, the only things I can do are dream about sewing, watch someone else sew, read a magazine about sewing or sit on the QB and write about sewing. And plan what I'm going to do with my boxes - and all my jingle bells..........hurry up Mailing date and then Reveal date

    can you do ant hand work at all ??

    hand work is what I am doing, I loosen the body wrap and have some movemant of my fingers that way. I'm doing a blanket stitch on a Christmas ornament and a binding on a small quilt. Because I am left -handed, it takes me longer to make any stitches with the right hand. I'm relying lots on my frame weights for any crewel work I have. It took me 2 hours to do three leaves on Thursday. i'm sewing, but nothing is fast. My typing is even slower...

    glad you are not just sitting around.
    was in full arm cast for 6 mths and had
    to learn to be left handed. had so much
    to do could not sit around. was a
    learning lesson for sure.

    Well I am stumped. I have researched my partner and now I have a list of interest and likes. That list has grown to the point that I now cant decide what to get you or make you. Oh the termoil. LOL I sure know one thing its better than not knowing anything. I do have just one question though, What is you favorite colors? That I have not been able to find. Since I havent seen you post alot on here I guess I am gonna have to just guess or go with a xmas theme in hopes that will do.

    I do not think you need to worry too much about colours. There was one person who posted no yellow at all, but I am sure the rest of us can use just about any colour that comes our way.

    I know there are colours that I would not use for a quilt for me, but I would happily use them in a quilt for others.
