Yes, I did. It was from the candles and the fire they had. Rough year last year. NOT going to repeat it.


Thanks!!!

They'll also have an optional round-table get together after the end of the class for anyone who wants to stick around and talk with the instructor.


That's exciting. I keep watching for a class around here .... nothing.

I'm looking forward to the quiet.




Just grilled salmon .... no salmon burger for me. The guys may have regular burgers, though.


I hope not, too. That's what I'm trying to avoid.

It's doubtful I will ever totally give up the paper crafting but remember I have been sewing since I was in 7th grade, and seriously sewing since high school. I did take a long break but it feels right to me to be behind the sewing machine. Card making is just plain fun to put something together in a short period of time is a joy I need that quick creative flow sometimes but I doubt I put much more $$$ into it. On the other hand I scoped out the local quilt shop today, big disappointment. It's a very small store, very overcrowded. I'll go there for thread or a quick "I need this now!" but I'll find better not too far away. Also the quilt guild is a bummer, they cut off membership at 150 & have a waiting list. oh well, when it's meant to be it will happen.




It's tough when you get a houseful of people, isn't it? I have a teen, so we spend quite a bit on food each week. I know what you mean, though.... when Jared's home, we spend a whole bunch on food.....




Sorry about the quilting guild and stuff. Such a bummer. We don't have good places here, either.

I actually still have a cape I made when I was in HS! It's reversible and has a leopard print corduroy on one side and a fuzzy fabric on the other side. I'm thinking I need to get it out and take it to the cleaners just to freshen it up. I also need to sew a couple new buttons on it. Can you believe it's 50 years old! It's almost an antique.



I bought a pattern for a cape yesterday. My mom wants me to 'practice' on mine and then to make her one.

Yes, we got our passports renewed in June...did it for our anniversary. We also got the passport cards...which can be used for ID and for Canada and Mexico. But, not flying out of the country. Hey...you want you passport stamped anyway. I still have "non used" passports....this is my 3rd! But, you never know....we might actually go someplace this next 10 years!!! Who knows!

That sounds like an awesome bonus!


At writers conferences we usually have the opportunity to try and get a seat at the same luncheon or dinner table with the editor/ agent whose brain we'd most like to pick You get the best information that way.

Dody...sorry to hear that the quilt shop and the guild were a bust. Is there another guild close by that you can join? I almost got into the one around here....but, the meeting time conflicted with something else. Don't remember when they meet now. Shows it hasn't been needed lately! I have plenty of sewing projects to do! I do need to get back into that again. Maybe this next year....yeah, I know that's what I said for this year! I've been sewing since I was in 7th grade. I didn't have the patience as much then. It has slowly developed with time!!! I guess I started doing stamping after college. But, I really didn't know what to do with some of the stamps that I got. I think with the knowledge that I have for card making....I could do so much more with some of those older stamps. Most of them are single stamps....sure like the groupings that you can get from SU...and some other companies.

well...I'm off to work on some cards....still have one more to make from the envelope that Krista sent out. I was hoping to take pictures of the cards I've already done...but, not enough light now. We had Chinese for lunch...then went to Hobby Lobby ...and then Sprouts. I'm sure we will have soup for supper. Certainly don't want much!

hello, my supper is in the oven, got my hair trimmed, pulled out a few more things for one of the ways to list it and went to the library...

I had a call from Donnie, he and Sue started out, had to return home, stopped for speeding~ which he and Sue both said was bogus~ they had not updated their license of new address so got a ticket for that ~ went back to take care of all of that and are having issues... things are so different now they only had 10 days to have their actual drivers license changed, and need a sealed copy of birth certificate to do it ... it is not like that in illinois, or at least is hasn't been ~!
... I am doubtful I will see them before Thanksgiving , I truly doubt they will try to make the trip at all ... Donnie is so upset, Sue is mad and well I am pretty sad...

If this is one of those things that happen for a reason,
I sure hope it is a good reason

I'm so sorry, Sonja. I hope they change their minds and try to make the trip again after getting it all settled.


Yes, things here are much different with the licenses. We could renew online the last time I did it - and could make it for 10 years. Now, though, you have to go in and you have to have 2 forms of id, as well as your SS card. There's more, but I can't remember. Totally ridiculous in my opinion.

well it has nothing to do with changing their their minds, there are just too many issues that are not able to be corrected easily or in a timely fashion

So I will just wait and see, I just am sad for them, they both wanted to come so bad...
Some of what they had to do today was fairly expensive,they are dealing with long distance phone calls and mail
like Sues birth certificate needs to be replaced and she is from Ohio...her copy is not sealed So $$ to get that and get both new licenses, and extra to Ohio courthouse and then a ticket too...that took a good bit out of their traveling money
So I just do not think they will be able to I totally understand but in honesty I do not want them to try to come and not have enough $ or get stranded or some thing They are on a limited income just as I am I want them to be safe and be able to enjoy Thanksgiving, so if staying there is better then it is ok
I am just sad I miss my brothers so much

oh yeah, I know about that 10 day thing! We really pushed it here & waited a few extra days so we could vote at our old address. But I have heard of people getting pulled over for speeding & getting a higher fine for the past 10 day thing. We have been very quick to get everything into this address because of that. We had to change everything twice now!

Suzy, yeah...I think there is a guild in another town not far from here. I know there are more shpos as well, some that are huge so I am not too worried.

Shell, I guess I had such a shock shopping today because I try to keep our food bill around $100 a week. I knew we would go over since I am still restocking the freezer & pantry but whoa!!!

Maggie, I would like to see a picture of your cape if you get it out. I made my wedding dress when I was 18. It is wrapped up....I don't even want to see how skinny I was to fit in it!!! But it's on the shelf in my sewing room with some other heirlooms.

Hahaha ... and it doesn't seem like a ton to me because I have 4 in the household ... including a 16 yo boy. I can't imagine spending only $100 a week on groceries....

I'm in the same boat, Dody. I just don't have that holiday spirit yet. Maybe after the decorations are up .... or after Thanksgiving .... or when I get Christmas gifts going....




I'm hoping to make a bunch of gifts this year.... we'll see.

Sorry for all of that...in short...

it is not their minds just their abilities... some day I will learn to keep my mouth shut...

I just saw on FB they are coming, but I will believe when I see them

I gave it to God and asked him to keep them safe where ever they were and supply them with love ...

Good morning Quackers. Had a fun time at the Baby Shower last night. The mom received lots of books for her children. Her little boy is 2 so I know that they will all enjoy looking at them. I gave her a GC to Amazon so she could pick out some of her own choice. It was so nice to hold that little baby girl. She's such a sweetheart and I just love her mom. She served with me in the Relief Society Presidency when I was president before they left for Utah for 2 years. We're all so happy to have her back here.

Sorry about all the issues that Donnie and Sue are facing, but I sure hope that they will be able to come and spend some time with you.

I suggest that you check out the PSC blog this morning.

I need to ask you this morning for prayers for the family of our Stake Relief Society President. I just got an e-mail this morning that the 7 week old baby of her oldest DD passed away yesterday during a nap. Sounds like SIDS. The mom has 5 other children - the oldest boy is 8 yo.

Good Morning, I am up but moving slow...
trying to decide if I want to go to town or stay home and finish up a few things here

I slept pretty good, I woke up at six, but went back to sleep, it seems those last 2 hours I sleep the best ...

Funny story... you all know about my raccoon... Miss Thing. She is becoming quiet spoiled. And apparently has lost her watch. Instead of coming around 9 or 9:30 at night now, she doesn't get here til 11:30! The dogs got me up night before last for me to find her falling out of the bird feeder and making a bee-line for the front deck. I came in to get her crackers and the storm door didn't close all the way. I turned back to go out and her nose was sticking between the door and door frame...just waiting.

Last night she tried to follow me in the house! LOL Really have to keep an eye on the door now.

I played with that same decision last night. I decided to keep writing today. Then I'll go in late afternoon for some light shopping and catch the 7p.m. Twilight.

Congrats Soni! It is a very pretty card and very much in keeping with the theme of the challenge. Did my heart good when I wrote up that post last night. I hadn't looked at the Poll until I got home from the baby shower, so I had no idea who the winners were going to be until about 9 last night. Make sure you put that button on your blog!

Need to swap loads of laundry. Little early to put them on the line but they'll be washed and ready. We should hit 65 today.
