I have been MIA for a while, Life is getting in the way of chatting. Spent last weekend cleaning, bottling wine and traveling to be with family, our niece had her confirmation on Sunday. Work is getting a little more intense, so I can't take as many short days. I have lot of sewing to get ready for Christmas. I am trying to get 8 memory quilts done before Thanksgiving so I can gift them this year. I have 9 sets of squares done, trying to make interesting blocks from the shirts, PJ's and bathrobes. [ATTACH=CONFIG]534266[/ATTACH] Dad had some really bad shirts, for his colored ones. He had over 40 white shirts and over 50 ties (some really skinny), I have three more sets to do so I'm getting close. The blank square is going to be one of dads handkerchiefs (around 30 of them) with the persons picture with dad on it. 72 blocks done only 24 left, then to sash and get them to the Long-arm.

For the latest questions
do you like to garden? I do but I do most perennials.
do you like to read books or magazines? I read all varieties of books paper and e-books but no magazines!
are you a salty or sweets kinda person? Both, sometimes at the same time
do you like all holidays and do you decorate for them? I do most holidays, I don't decorate much except for Christmas, It's only the DH and me here. If the house was big enough we would have a 20 foot tree. Our outdoor lights are up but not on. DH turns them on on Thanksgiving the they are on every day until Jan 15th.

How long do you leave your decorations up? long time or short????

I suppose you might also call them 'gadgets'. Things like that are difficult to get here and very expensive and anything new, like Bobbin Clamps or Peels for example, take months to be sold here! Please don't worry about my parcel - although I gave a lot of info (I think!), I'm easy to please and will be happy with whatever you send. Thanks for thinking of me .
Knitette, Deepest sympathies on the death of your dear mother-in-law.

I've never heard of Peels before or seen Bobbin Clamps like your picture but they both look like nice products.

Question: Just to make it a little interesting all over again. I know some are done, but that's ok, you can still answer.
Do you like table runners? Do you like table toppers? Which do you prefer?
