Welcome Aurora, glad you decided to give quilting a go again.  Sounds like you're ready to really get into it now.  We'd love to see the wall hanging that got you started.  Wish you many happy hours in your new sewing area in your new home.  Please share pics.

Looks like a Janome advertisement, Leslie!  I love your little felted project, nice work!  Keep on sharing what you do with both machines, you'll be able to make some Christmas napkins with your serger, how exciting for you.

Patti:

MNnancy:
I think our skunks are all in hibernation already.  Want me to send some cold air your way?

I am so glad to hear that they hibernate.  It won't be long now.   No need to send your cold air.

Patti, not so fast.  According to biologists skunks do not truly hibernate.  However in the coldest weather they do close up their burrows and sleep a lot.  But it is not true hibernation.  On sunny "warmish" day during the winter they will come out and hunt for food.  I wondered, because we have seen them and their tracks (with an expert) in the winter.

Karla:

Our wildlife consists of deer occasionally, coyotes, and jack rabbits.  But the most beautiful wildlife we have are the wild mustangs...they are all over and at times we can watch them from our back yard.  

Karla, I would love to see the wild mustangs!  That must be an awesome sight!  Last summer, we had planned to go to the Steen Mountain area of south central Oregon specifically hoping to see the band of wild "Keiger" mustangs that range there.  They are an isolated strain - believed to be the descendants of horses with the early Spanish explorers.

We didn't make it last summer (life got in the way)...but hopefully this next summer.

They are beautiful...we have a herd of about 10-20 that run near here, sometimes as close as the field behind us...but most of the time I see them near they LQS which is at the base of the foothills that surround our little valley.  Their water supply however is the canal that runs right behind our house.

Well this upcoming wedding is lots of work!.Lots of family are coming from out of town, some 10 days before the wedding. The next 5 weeks are going to be crazy. I was worried how I would find time to shop and get ready for Christmas for all my kids with all that is going on, but now i've found a great solution. We are going to surprise the kids Christmas morning with the news that we are going to the Oregon Coast for a few days, to the place we had the quilt retreat at. Much less stressful!

That's great Jacy. I remember you talking about that possibility. What a wonderful place to take a family.


In the beautiful Pacific Northwest!

Debbie:
CC - what is the pattern on your cancer quilt?
Ah-hA!! I finally found it, Debbie!  The pattern is in the Jan/Feb 2003 issue of Quiltmaker Margazine. They called it "Facets" and it's on page 18.

Quilters are people who strip so they won't go topless.

 SA-Weet!! What a  wonderful gift. I can already picture the boys picking beach rocks.

Yes I think it's going to be fun after the stress of the weeks before. Pack up some warm clothes, groceries and beach toys and we'll be set. CC, you are right, those boys are going to have a blast hunting up rocks, shells, treasures. I know Riley will not be able to stay away from the water, and when they are cold and wet, they can just come back inside and dry off/warm up. I may even get some hand-sewing time in too, as well as some exercise walking up and down the beach.

What a weekend!  My friends and I spent a quilting weekend from Friday afternoon till tonight. I managed to finish two quilts and begin two more baby quilts. Next step is to quilt them and then I can start on Christmas gifts. I'm knitting socks for friends and will make hats too.. 

CC great picture of Sprout...and very nice quilt too.

 It took me an hour to catch up to all of you. Leslie I'm quite envious of your new machines.  Your flower looks so delicate.  

Max, arguing with DH on renovations could be an Olympic sport!  I keep telling DH that I know what I need in the kitchen and bathroom, but he doesn't get it unless I explain in details..it requires so much energy!

i loved seeing the pictures and I know I missed some important stuff.  Oh and we has s€#w since Friday. And it is cold. As we were standing at the cenotaph for the Remembrance Day ceremony, the sun was so bright but brrrr, baby it was cold!
