    Hi everybody, I just realized, I am on of those that hasn't posted too often. I have been busy busy busy. I have been out of town and have not even started on my box yet. I have actually stopped at 2 places looking for just the right things for my giftee. But, all I came away with is one little ol' fat quarter. (although, I am confident that my partner will like it.) I can't wait to go out again. I'm sure I'm overthinking this. I love to give gifts!! And, my partner did give me lots of good hints. So, I'm sure next week will be fun, fun, fun!! (jingle, jingle, jingle)

    As for myself, I did give my partner some info to go on. But, I love suprises. I really don't have a favorite color right now. I used to think, I didn't like green or orange. And yet this year, those two colors have just called my name. (although, not togehter) I wonder what colors I will gravitate to next year? I think I am getting these too colors out of my system this year. I like traditional and modern styles. The only thing I'm not really crazy for is oriental fabrics and animal prints. And, I made a quilt out of orientals for a friends daughter and an animal print one for a friend I worked with. And, I did enjoy working on them. I hope I haven't made it difficult for you. Really, I love homemade, I love suprises. Please don't stress yourself and have fun.

    My giftee is actually a bit more active on another thread on the quiltboard. Of course, that's not a very good clue. That could mean so many of you. (But, afterall, I wouldn't want to give away the suprise.) She is always gracious. I am enjoying the little peaks into her quilty world.

    I have been more of a lurker of late. I have been trying to get lots of sewing done. It is so addicting here on the quiltboard.

    Yesterday was a good day for my SS. I got a gift for her made and gifts for her furry friends. I will need a bigger box than the one I started with.

    I would love to do more today, but I have a baby shower to go to out of town. I wish I did not have to go to work tomorrow, so I could get more done.
    Attending University. I will graduate a year after my son and year before my daughter.

    I am not sure if that was me or not I did say that yellow was not my favorite color but as you said it can be used for other people. That said all colors have their place in life. Can we start mailing now? As long as the box is here I keep finding things that want to jump in there.Those of us who did not do this last year want to know what happened to tlrnhi last year? If you all find that your box runneth over you can always send the fall out my way. PM me and I will be more than happy to send my address. When can we stop being so nice? After we get our package(s)? Keep shopping all. BrendaK

    tlrnhi: What would it take for you to tell us?
    Be kind to yourself, by being kind to others. When you help others you help yourself.

    Oh and something for the furry members of her family.
    The Fur Kids LOVE stuff. I just signed them up for BarkBox for 3 months. Hehe!

    It's very windy, and dark today, suppose to rain, but it is beginning to feel a lot like Christmas. I know halloween hasn't passed yet or Thanksgiving, but it still feels like Christmas in the air. It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas every where we go.

    If I remember right, I was one who kept everyone in order last year. Remember, I kept threatening you guys with the snickerdoodle removal.

    Okay ladies, here it is.............. YOUR Santa package will be in the sleigh on it's was to you tomorrow!!! This little 'elf' has been busy making lots of goodies for your sewing room, it all matches, and is made of fun & whimisical sewing material. I sure hope you like it all, there wasn't much on your list to go by so after having a chat with Santa, he suggested I just get creative and go with what I'd like. So, I used some of the same fun material I have in my sewing room to make YOUR special items. So we're gonna be 'sewing sisters! lol

    Be on the look out for it. :::::::

    You may not believe this, but my younger son is actually allergic to chocolate. His brother has a standing bet with him if he will eat a package of M&M's...

    I just got finished shopping at Connecting Threads. I lucked out and found the blue material I needed for my Christmas table runner that has been on my to do list for several months. They also had the prettiest _______, and the most gorgeous ______, got a couple of _______ fat quarters, and I ended up getting a whole yard of ________ so I could share it with my giftee, half and half. I also got two _______, one for the giftee and one for me so I could get free shipping. Now I need two more items and I will be ready to wrap. I hope I can find a box big enough for these goodies.
