    OHHHHH....nice!
    We didn't get a refund this year....but between federal and state taxes, we broke even, so that's a good thing. I can't wait for that Stimulus check to come in. That's my trip to Hong Kong!!

    O Henry, I want to come to your house and play! Good choices. I wished we would have gotten one of those checks too! O the things I could purchase!

    I spent money today but mine did not come from the check that a lot of people got :cry: O well, maybe next year I will at least get a small return of some kind. Until then I will just keep hiding things from my DH! LOL

    Psst, I dont really hide things from him. He is just not aware of the ACTUAL amount I do make! LOL

    LOL

    I think Joanns, when I get to go to the actual store, welcomes me with open arms. lol Would love to be able to get to a REAL fabric store again, but I can dream......

    When I work, we use hubbys check to pay household bills and whatnot and my checks are for play. Works out great that way. Hmmm....maybe I need a job so I can play more? ;)

    You've got to love JoAnn's! I especially love the $.99 fat quarters. Have to restrain myself when they go on sale--I already own way too many!

    Henry, I hope you do not mind but I showed my 14yo SS your threads showing your work and your new toys. He is interested in quilting but see's it as a "girl thing" and I wanted to show him that tough guys sew too and in fact make some pretty neat stuff! He was very happy to see your work and I feel like you being here has helped him understand that tough guy's can create with stitches too! Thanks for being here and showing my SS that he doesnt have to be afraid of the creativeness he has inside!

    President Bush will just be so proud of you, Henry. (and I love those fat quarters, I got an ad in the mail and that .99 price tag keeps calling me...)

    Great choices - i have a few of the books and they are great and the 12.5 X 12.5 ruler is the best. I have worn mine out and need a new one.

    Hi c2cd2008---

    I do not mind at all. Quilting isn't just a "girl thing". My grandfather before me quilted. And he made some really great things. The one thing he ever made for me I cherish the most. He has been gone for 20 years this August but I still have the full size quilt he made me before he died in 1988 of brain cancer. Tell your SS to not let anything stop the creativeness inside. Create and be proud of what you can create. (P.S my wife can't sew at all)

    O Henry, that is so cool that you have a quilt that was made for you by your grandfather. My DH has one his grandfather made him as well and last year I had it re-done becuase he had used it and used it and used it some more! LOL

    My SS was in awe and as he says "A dude" could made such neat pretty things. He cracked me up earlier, as much as he has seen me sew pieces of fabric together, he somehow has in his head you just butt he pieces together and sew them up! LOL I have been teaching him right side to right side tonight. Were working on a special quilt for his daddy using Ole Miss fabrics. Daddy just wanted 4inch squares, which I am not keen on because I dont feel like I am being very creative but thats what he asked for, thats a pretty simple start for my SS though and he is wanting the topper to hurry and get finished because he wants so bad to use the frame. I think that the part that intriques him the most.

    I am glad you did not mind me showing him the pictures you have posted here, trust me they are much enjoyed, you do great work!

    I think it is great you are introducing your son to quilting and showing him that it isn't just a "girl thing". lol. Kudos to you!
