I'd get out there on the open road, open him up & just sit back & ride! Loved those Western states where the speed limit was above 70 mph! He never liked crawling through California though!

    Cindy.........you can fire up that "BIG BOY" & come & get me any time. I'll be ready for you!! I love a good adventure.

    Oh the places I've been, the things that I've seen! 20 years on the road & now all I want is to stay home & play! Besides which, I just got a new furbaby! A little orange & white kitty to go along with my 2 poodles. It's really funny, if I want to know where kitty is, all I have to do is look for Cindy Lou & I'll find it. (Cindy Lou is a standard poodle, 60 lbs). Duke (the 8 lb one) could care less about miss kitty. Don't have a name for her yet, DH says something that ends in e. Her name will come soon as I figure out her personality.

    We got two kittens this summer. The first was planned for a couple years. We decided when our older cats were between 8-10 we would get one kitten. Which we did. We named out Torti Lizzie, as she was (and still) leaps everywhere. Thus Lizzie the leaping lizard.

    3 weeks later our beautiful older male cat dropped dead. It was a huge shock, Patches was only 9 and had been in good health.

    A week later we headed back go the pet store and there was the funniest looking black and white cat with a black moustache. We went back 2 days later and he was still there. We called him Charlie after Charlie Chaplin.

    It was awhile later that I realized some people thought we had named them after Queen Elizabeth and Prince Charles.

    Both kittens came from pet stores that sell rescue/feral kittens that have been fostered and socialized prior to sale.

    Way off topic, but both of the kittens were hanging out on my SS bag. Today is wrapping day, the first time I have tried to wrap a gift since getting the kittens. It should be fun.

    Well, miss kitty has discovered she likes quilts! Here she is snoozing on one of my sampler pieces I did on the longarm. Took her out to the studio & she had fun playing with the scraps that I dropped or anything she could find. I wouldn't mind naming her Quilty, but I don't think DH would go for that one! Any suggestions???

    Patches! What a cute kitty. She needs a warm washcloth in her little eyes.

    My DH looked at kitty and said it looked like a Sam to him. I said it was a girl and he said, "Sammy, short for Samantha". He didn't know anything about the eeee part. LOL
    Happy Quilting.

    I have a big white long haired cat, and he (charlie) is getting old. I have 4 dogs that are bigger, and we recently took in a little half shiht-tzu and half yorkie. How do I get these other bigger dogs to ever accept the little yappy dog? It is a real challenge. hehe

    It's believed that kitties respond better to names that end with the eee noise. But I have one that is named Muesli (he's the 20lber) and I call him Mues mainly.. and the other is named Turtle, and I call her TurtleTurtleTurtle.. It doesn't really matter what you call them.. hehe.
    What's a female sound name for Boss lady.. hehe cause she's gonna be your quilting supervisor. My kitten Turtle can't NOT touch fabric. omg is like a magnet.

    ok, this is making me nervous! Ya'll are talking about mailing several boxes. I understood that one "requirement" for this this swap is-4 fat quarters. and to spend no more than 20 bucks. we can shop our stash and make whatever else we like to send. first timer here so am I on the right path here? I don't want to disappoint anyone!

    Sounds like you got it just right. Some people have a very large stash with lots of extras already put back. I can honestly say, I may be going a bit over $20. Inflation...and not a very large varied stash. And, I am getting a bit creative on the homemade items. But, unfortunately, it won't be tremendously over. I have a very limited budget at the moment. But, I don't think my Secret Giftee will be disappointed.

    Last year, I was right at the $20 dollar mark. It was fun. A first time for me also. I also was very nervous. I think if you just keep it quilt related you'll be good. Unless of course, your Secret giftee gave you other suggestions.

    I have shopped my stash, bought the fat quarters and a few small gifts. I made a few items as well with things I had on hand.

    I think my recipient will be happy with what I am sending, even though I have had to watch my spending.

    I showed the unwrapped items to my mil tonight and she is jealous (she does not sew, but is a painter).

    Just relax, enjoy what you are making & let your creative side take over! I'm having way too much fun sewing little things to go in the box! I keep thinking of more to put in there!
