LaJuan Sukochi Lee:
Patti, I found out that a dear friend from our early newlywed days is a 7th cousin. And, that our former neighbor was a 3rd cousin. And, recently, DH found out that a high school friend (he grew up in northern MS) lives HERE!!! Life is amazing.

We once found out that my daughter's best friend in junior high school was actually her 3rd cousin...and we found out that one of my grandsons and a classmate were actually 2nd cousins.  The man who used to help me with my genealogy research found out after several years of researching that we actually shared a great great grandmother.  This really is a small world.

Thanks for sharing Nancy, I love seeing other people's arts.   Those seam ripper/mustache trimmers vvere featured at one of the shop hops last year and, of course, I bought one.   They vvork pretty vvell on long seams. 

(sorry about the v"s, forgot to cut and paste a real "vv" before I started this post)

CC:  Sprout is so cute, I bet he has a great temperament.  My youngest grandkid is now 5 and the oldest will be 13 next month so no more babies until the great grandkds come along. 

 

PS  Thanks for the loan of a "w" from your post Sukochi.

Joni:
I'm blown away by your gorgeous houses...you have an awesome imagination!

I wish, Joni.  Those are pictures of other quilters' work - on display at the Sewing/Quilting Expo in Minneapolis.  But thanks for thinking that I might be that talented!  LOL

LaJuan Sukochi Lee:
I can see fabric post cards coming from those quilts.

Oh, yes, that's another thing I bought at the expo - one of those rubber postcard stamps for the address side of the card!  Now I have to find a stamp pad big enough for it.  Is there a special kind of ink I should be looking for?

For those of you curious about the hair trimmer seam ripper, it is only 4 inches long with a 1 inch wide blade and runs on one AA battery.  She said it was especially useful when removing paper piecing seams sewn with itty bitty stitches.  I will not be letting Randy trim his beard with this!

Oh, good, I'm glad I'm not the only one who got suckered in!  LOL

Here in Northern Nevada, we call that frozen fog "pogonip".  I believe that is the Paiute name for it.

We don't have a special name for it Karla, but it sure is pretty. Thanks for sharing, I love trivia like that.

Nice work Spudgrandma, I like the colors.

Thank you Bonita, I really like them also, they are really calming. I may have to make a whole quilt out of them one day.

Nancy, does that mean we should expect a pretty postcard from you soon?  :  )

Spudgrandma:
I especially like it when you get the foggy frost that covers everything, the sagebrush looks so cool!

Here in Northern Nevada, we call that frozen fog "pogonip".  I believe that is the Paiute name for it.  It is beautiful when it is clinging to the trees and bushes and, yes, it even makes the sagebrush pretty.

Here in Minnesota it's called "hoar frost" - really pretty on a cold sunny day! 

 

I've heard that before, I just did not know what it meant. Thanks for the info Nancy

I really enjoy genealogy also Karla. I have not done any for the last couple of years, but would like to get back into it. I've been trying to find out about my Mom's side of the family, but cannot get past my grandmother. Do you use Ancestor.com ? I subscribed just before I got sick and then was not able to use it. If you use it, is it worth it?
