I like sock monkeys, yes and no on cold, depends if I am having a hot flash or not. At times my feet are cold and if they are forget it I am freezing. But I have lots of sock slippers. I don't take a lot of classes because of my work. No theme on the tree. I don't have a star or anything for the top of the tree. I like snowmen, nut crackers. My favorite shirt color???? I don't have a favorite, depends on the shirt.
Purse, I got so many hand bags, and some I need to finish making.
Besides quilting, I like embroidery-machine I have a brother 7" hoop, PES. I am a new grandma, and she just arrived, we are going for a walk. The dogs have never meet her so its the first time. Bye for now Hope this helps you.

  • Other than quilting, do you have a favourite hobby?I dabble in knitting/crochet, machine embroidery


  • What is your stance on Sock Monkeys?don't mind looking at them as long as they don't attach themselves to  me!


  • Could your purse be considered a piece of luggage?How did you know DH calls my purse a 'Samsonite'?


  • Are you always cold?NEVER


  • Do you do themed Christmas trees (or trees at all)?traditional variety, don't go for the color themed stuff

Hi Everyone,

Has everyone taken a look at their likes and dislikes and seen if anything needs to change?

Maybe bring it forward so it's easier to find?

Finished my gift last week and Cassie finished hers. I am going to pkg them up and have them ready to pop in the mail. Might send them early so I don't forget in the up coming cooking/decorating frenzy.

She is Sophia (after my Aunt/her moms cousin) Hortensia (after Anton's grandma) Campos.  

I was so upset and later thought I shouldn't have vented on here, so deleted it.  I am the closest, home during the day, his stepmom is home, but she watches her daughter son who is a handful & her mom, she is op way of daughter in laws job.  Her sisters mother in law who watches her kids, watches them in her home, but she comes 30 mins away to do it.  She has money and is retired, does a lot for her son and daughter in law because she can.  They don't want her to watch the baby also they don't think much of her, she is very nice, I like her.  Her mom works, stepdad works at home, but has to go places at times.  I don't think he would drive in traffic everyday which would take him almost an hour to get out here to watch the baby for possibly 2 hrs.  But maybe I am mistaken.  
So, I am the best choice.  I am thinking its my dogs and her sister who says mom mother in law comes to me tell her the same.  I am sure of that.  But its not going to happen so, we will see.  

I always had a hard time finding someone to watch my son, was very thankful when his dads mom could watch him.  Back then I didn't drive so she would come and pick him up, 15 min drive.  I would let him spend the night so as she wouldn't be driving back and forth.  

Ok, I got to talk my husband into letting me buy something so I can get going on my secret Santa gift for............... Which reminds me, you left off my name above so I take it you don't have me.

In July Linda 2B made me the cutest wall hanging with a flamingo.  I just love it.  
Ok timer for breakfast going off bye for now.

Polska Thumbup congrats !
Spent Saturday with Gwennie and the kids. Yesterday did a little shopping and just relaxed mostly. Managed a little sewing. Going to work on some projects in the sewing room today. It
s freezing out today!
1. Yes, I love to dress up!
2. Besides quilting I love to do needlepoint - counted cross-stitch.
3. No my purse is big, but not that big!
4.I used to be hot all the time. It's gotten lots better the last couple of years (Finally)! I get cold really easily now.
5. Don't really have a theme for the tree. A mish mosh of ornaments. Most are special ones given to us or ones the kids or grandkids have given us or made us.
6. I have taken classes in the past, but nor for a few years now. Have thought about taking some again though.
7. My favorite shirt is green.

I got the stuff to make mine. Instructions seem clear, but waiting for tomorrow when I am off and have all the time to make it. Don't want to rush and make mistakes. Its something I haven't done before.
All I will say is, Mine has to go over seas, so if its late sorry. But I do plan to try and get it out in mail before next week.
