    Christmas songs! I sing them all day long just to drive everyone nuts and the weirder the look my DH gives me the louder I sing. I can't sing worth beans but it doesnt bother me or the cats so majority rules. I have only one CD of music an old Kenny Rogers. I used to have a ton but this really good stupid butt idea came into my head. Load them all on the computer and then you can get rid of them! yes! I hate clutter CD's equaled clutter. Then my computer died. no music. sigh. I hate my good ideas.

    Hey Brat - didn't get all my lefse done yesterday - I burned out the electrical outlet I plug my lefse iron in; Brian told me "No more - you're going to burn the house down"; electrician just left so now I can finish up. Talk about cutting it close to the deadline.

    The whole reason I joined this group back in January was that I had the great idea of practicing quilting on my sewing machine. Hmmmmmm....I hate to admit it but it is true....not one quilt did I do on the Machine....all hand quilted. So
    I am going to do DEC on the machine. All I can say is it is about time I did this. Do you think????
    Dotty in NYC....your location has UWS after it. What does that mean??? Curious minds want to know.

    Oh Elisabrat, your posts make me laugh - I want some of your cheeriness (or your meds) I read QB every morning as I eat breakfast and it's a great way to start the day - that's if I make it through laughing and eating toast at the same time without choking !!!

    Yay to urgodschild for being brave enough to machine quilt her Dec swap. You can do it !!!

    Dabbler, hope you aren't going to burn out your sewing machine like the lefse iron or else I won't get my DQ LOL

    This is my wonderful DQ that I got from NanaKathy55

    And the extra goodies she sent to me.

    I hung the DQ on the wall with all my others and it looks
    good there too.

    The small chicken is an ornament, but since I don't put up
    a tree I decided to treat it as a pincushion and hang it up
    with all my other handmade pincushions.

    I love it all!!!!!!!!

    Thanks again Kathy

    I Can't believe I did it. I quilted it on the machine. It is very basic. Nothing fancy. Stitch in the ditch and cross X's.
    Just got the binding to do which I will do tomorrow while I watch football. Then it will be ready to go into the mail.

    Well done, nothing wrong with stitch in the ditch, that's about all I do - well quite a lot of stitch around the ditch, stitch over the ditch, stitch alongside the ditch, etc etc.

    Oh yee of little faith - I fly by the seat of my pants when there is a deadline fast approaching, all the while wiping my brow. Nice thing about my sewing machine is I can turn up the speed if needs be - no need to worry your pretty little head that my machine will burn up before I get it done as I sew in slow speed for better control.

    On another note - all my lefse was sold out within the first hour of fundraiser; if I truely need to chase down an extra buck I could easily supplement my income by selling it; truth is I'm Sloth's momma and that boy gets it from me.

    Elisabrat -- Honey, I think you need to check out some of those meds you're taking ... You're wearing me out! But with all that going on, I applaud your upbeat attitude towards it all. You go,girl!

    Blessed are the cracked, for it is they who let in the light.

    Beautiful quilts coming and going. Keep those pictures posted.

    Hahaha, must admit my sewing machine languishes on the slower speed too.

    My gosh, your lefse must be good. I haven't ever heard of it let alone tasted it but seems lots of people love it so how pleasing it would be to see it sell out so fast.

    dabbler312, your DQ went in the mail today so just maybe you will get it before Christmas. I am so pleased I talked myself into doing the Dec swap as this one was fun to do with my odd little twist thrown in.

    Hi Girls! Just took a break from my endless inventory spreadsheet for the insurance adjusters to read through this thread. Man, do I miss you all! Love the sneak peeks! I can't wait to see more! And I just thought I'd let you know that I will happily trade lefse's for some mmm-mmm-good MRE's! Who doesn't like food in a pouch? Well, back to my Excel insanity. Remind me not to own much of anything ever again so I won't have to go through this again.

    I had to share the label of the blankets the National Guard was handing out. What a relief to know there isn't any DDT!

    Happily we had these a few days later. That's my son, the Eagle Scout, who tied them to his backpack with bungee cords -- before we acquired the "must-have accessory" - a shopping cart.

    And a couple of days after that we went to the "refugee center" -- formerly our ice arena which was a mountain of donated stuff. I found this nifty king-sized hand tied quilt laying outside in the playground and I guess no one wanted it. What a treasure for a quilter to find!
    After a couple of spins in the washing machine at our apartment it just needs a little re-stitching here and there. Not my favorite colors, but it will be nice to give to someone.

    Well I'll check in again soon.
