    Oh dear...everyone else on here is so up on things! I have a project planned and fabric bought for it, for my person, but have yet to cut or sew a stitch! I did manage to buy some nice fat quarters (that I considered keeping...but I'll be good!), but so far no other gifts to speak of! I do plan to get some handmade chocolates from the local chocolatier.

    I'm trying to get my inventory done for an upcoming craft show, and haven't quite found the time Don't think I'm not thinking about my secret person, though! Guess I just need to get my rear in gear!!!

    I am almost done shopping for my secret giftee. She has a furr baby or is it furr babies (hmm, which is it?) that I want to tuck in a little something for. But, I haven't found what I'm looking for yet. And, I've been busy cutting and cutting and cutting. Did I mention cutting, snip snip snip. Oh yes, my secret pal and I have some very similar interests. Does anyone else like quilting also? lol Interesting huh. Who could it be? I still have one more little goodie to whip up next week and then will be mailing off soon. I think I will delay it just a bit till after the storm passes. My package will be heading east of me. But, is it northeast or southeast or just plain old east. (:wink

    I am having such a blast putting together my package. It is so much fun to incorporate my partners interests into a gift put together just for her.

    To all our quilty friends who live on the east coast, batten down the hatches. And, try to stay safe. (Prayers for safety to you and your family members.)

    Well Leota, will add your DD to the prayer list. With the hopes that family and friends will remain safe in the event that the storm does do what predictions say.

    I don't know how to crochet either. I am just a beginner Knitter. I really do enjoy it. And, there is some great knit patterns out there. My mom knits beautifully!

    my mom was fantastic at both but she passed away long ago when I was younger.
    my last knit project was a few years back. I took 5-6 beautiful yarns and blended
    them to make knitting that many at one time on the needle. they turned out beautiful.
    fringe on both ends showed the actual yarns used ti make them. most were different.
    had fun and it was over.

    It sounds beautiful Dreamer. I'm so sorry about your mom. But, she lives on in your heart and memories. And, now she watches over you.

    I am so excited, I pick up a few things today for my giftee. I have tried to obtain everything on her wish list, in a way..... Some of the items she asked for I cannot do, but I am sending her a few things that might help her do it for herself. I am so excited!
    Now for whoever my SS might be, I am so excited, but I do hope whoever you may be that you do not mind if I don't open my presents up on the day set. I want to save them for Christmas. I want to have something under the tree this year for me!

    When do they need the hats. I would love to make some and send them to you. You can PM me if you don't want to disclose the location of your lair. Let me know what size and if there is a special pattern they are using.

    I lost my DH 15 years ago. I know how that "call me if you need anything" works....NOT! Then my kids wonder why I don't ask them for help any more. I do most everything myself. I do have a lawn boy (age 79) that does my lawn mowing, but most everything else is done by ME.

    I just have to finish my last thing for my santee and I'm dreading it. Oh why oh why did I choose this design.. torture for myself I guess. Geez. Gotta get 'er done tho. Might run out of thread. Who's idea was it to put 165 yards of thread on a spool? worthless.

    I'm mostly hung up on the technical aspects of some things... what will be the best way to achieve the look and the thing I need to do.. hmm.. argh.. I think I need another spool at least. It'll only take a day to finish.. maybe only like.. a couple hours. I just gotta get started.

    Sure hope all you guys on in New England stay safe. I am in North Carolina, been looking like rain all day but just stayed windy and cloudy. Chilly too I love the colder weather!!!
    Got the last few things for my ss person today, hope to get their box out next week!!! Still waiting to get mine, but silently thanking my ss person for not sending it to me yet, as it might have put me in the naughty corner keeping dreamer company!!! Sure hope I can wait until reveal day!!
    Stay safe and warm everyone!
