    For those that don't have their names yet,,,,please be patient.
    I had a glitch in my system and I'm trying to get everything fixed.
    Lost a few names and something went wonky.
    Those that have their names already are fine...it just happened to those that I didn't get to yet.
    I'm working as fast as I can to get everything inputted to finish this up.

    Thank you for your patience....

    Here is the list that I promised after getting our names!!

    For my FQ'S, I would love to get pretty floral (small to medium size) print's in beautiful color's. If that's not available to you, I also like jewel tones & white on white or light beige tones.

    My Favorite Flower is the Iris & Lilly of the Valley. But I love all pretty flower's to.

    Pretty Christmas fabric would also be welcome, also lovely fall print's. Nothing drab.

    Could always use white or light tan thread.

    For my gift I would love to get some Gutermann' variegated thread. I have blues, greens & tan's. There are several color's available. If you can't find it that's OK too!!

    K-cups are would be great too. Coffee of different flavor's, Tea's or Hot Chocolate. No-De-calf please.

    I have one small lap dog named Rosie & she loves yummies & goodies to.

    I have no allergies.

    I enjoy getting hand made item's that you love to make

    Quilting Magazines are always welcome. Gently used is great too.

    I love to quilt, mostly with paper piecing as my favorite kind of blocks to make. I am always up for the Mystery Train Rides they are so fun.

    I have several seam ripper's, but could use smaller rulers.

    No Clover clips or zippers.

    I also love milk chocolate candy. Cadbury, Lindt, Dove & a lot of the other's.

    I like to be surprised, so if you really like to make something, I know I would love it too!!

    Repurposed item's are great.

    I like hand lotion's of any scent & bath items also.

    I would like Post Card from you state or something with your states name on it.

    Pot Holders, dish towels.

    I guess you could say that I pretty much like it all!!

    If you need more information just have another member ask me, okay?

    I also plan to make a peach cobbler this weekend too.

    Wait to get my lil elf name so I can get busy with the shopping.

    Hi Louise. I just made some vegetable beef stew and canned it. Made 21 quarts in 2 days.
