    Your doggie is sooo cute Mary! glad you got the little quilt. I had a time and a half trying to figure how to get it into a box without scrunching the ribbon up. You see I started out making a twister wreath. I was so happy with it everything cut and started sewing when the brain kicked in. I have a slow starter here guys. I realized I had cut four inch squares not five inches as needed. I wanted to do the floor flopping thing again and kick my feet but decided it would be better for my carpet to just suck it up and figure it out. I hope its not too simple as that was never the intent to start with.


    I love the snowman! super cute and now i want to see that pic to the left of it again please!

    Robin - Such wonderful news - yeah you!

    Snowmen, wreaths, snowflakes, trees.....such wonderful DQs this month - great work everyone.

    A note about my pic posting - The applique snowmen are the extra that HobbyKat sent to me. The last picture was added in error. The Angel is actually what I sent to HobbyKat and was not supposed to be in that posting - but I could not delete it.

    Jacie.....I had my knee replaced 4 years ago...also in DEC. But I got to come home after two days. My son lives with me and took real good care of me and we were living in a one floor apartment in MA. at the time. My recovery was very fast. I was walking the first day right after surgery. My Dr. believes in getting you up and moving. He also doesn't believe in having me exercise on this thing that I saw others using. It was like miniture bichycle peddle thing that could lie on the bed and you lie there and peddle. NOPE my Dr. got me up and walking down the hallway.
    This is a surgery I would do again if I need to for the other knee except....knock on wood...the other knee is fine.

    CQR....How exciting for you. My niece just went through Chemo, radiation and now she has to go once a month for something that they put in the port that they left in. So far she is also CAncer free for the last 6 m onths. This thing they do every month is something I don't understand but it takes about 3 hours to do. But so far so good. I am happy for you and I know that you will have a very happy Christmas.

    ugh knee replacement I had a patellar realignment that is so much better having been done but egad rather not sign up for that. they do get you moving pretty quickly.

    Tam moo what a great doll quilt! superb idea. four packages even!

    hey any suggestions thrown out by quiltingkrazy/krystyn for Januarys DQ swap? I was just curious

    oh and its snowing outside. a balmy 20 right now. Yippeee (not). I like snow in the movies only. Its also pretty from the couch. Not so much outside or on those monster work boots my DH loves to wear into the house and prop on my coffee table, snow and all. ARGH! should set up a chair in the wash room he can eat his lunch there on the washing machine lol how grand of me right? I just think they invented all those treads on the bottom to pull up chunks of pineneedles/mud/snow for ME. well snow is good so I will shut up now and snivel all by myself in the corner with a mop, rag and broom.

    I was thinking new years too bubbles etc. someone else in another swap was mentioning mardi gras for Jan. and of course I want a head start. I am going to do another boom swap so I would love to be able to do both and if I start early... then I can play here too! I just finished quilting my mystery train quilt. I had two days to do it which is pretty hard for me. Regular sewing machine, getting on the floor to pin it (needing help to get off the floor mind you) and then smushing it in and out of the machine argh. finished binding at 12:40 last night. A 17 hour quilt day. Its done. Phew as it is leaving home today. so my table is waiting projects! projects! it calls to me. Maybe I will go rogue and just .. make a doll quilt and hope my partner likes rogue dqs.Name:  quilt inspector mystery quilt.jpg

    Wondering why we don't do the theme for the next month. For January if we do hearts, then the doll quits can be displayed for all of February.

    OK y'all how about for January, (for those who need/want a theme...like me) Since many may want holiday theme....
    let's go with a theme of THREE COLORS! that way you can use red, pink, and white for a Valentine theme or National Heart Month, OR... you can go with purple, gold and green for Mardi Gras theme. Maybe Red,white and blue for Presidents day. OR just any three colors that you like or your partner likes. What do ya think?

    Linda your quilt is beautiful. I like the idea of three colors so we can make in January what will be displayed in February.
