We are using the book, Fast, Fun, and More Gifty. It is compiled and written especially for us! Our newest Gifty book is the best ever for preparing a gift-giving extravaganza. There are even MORE small and quick projects. Hey, you'll be able to use the projects in this book all year long!

  1. Time frame is from July 18th - December 19th, 2016 for the weekly projects.
  2. Please post all project questions on Notions where you will find the complete blog. All information is kept together there for reference later and It's much easier to find!

Thel, nothing wrong with protecting yourself, You might even consider a mask, just say your immune system is compromised and you don't want to get sick , you can tell them that Dr Mary Rita advised it.

Typing all done, that print was so tiny and the legaleze so boring, , I am grateful that Finn helped me proof read, all corrections are made, and now just have to be sure I enterpreted the chicken scratch my son in law did to make his (improvements ) are indeed what he wanted. It was kind of fun for a change of pace , and they are willing to pay for my time. So win win .

I still have a little time left at the end of my day to cut some more geese, been sort of poultry day, cooked some chicken for the cobb salad, and the rest will be chicken and dumplings for tomorrow, now I am going to cut geese for BH. Pock Pock Pa Docket. ( sp)

Cold here, but still in lower 20's but no snow in Spokane yet, we have a couple of inches left from the last storm, Kathleen can keep hers, I am sure our time is coming.

I will probably hear about this, but as far as ME machines, I never felt it was a big crafty deal to have the machine do the work, after programing the computer, then you walk off and do something else, also looks to me like a bit of a money pit with all that thread and patterns. Just my bah humbug 2 cents worth. I will still eww and Ahh over everything you talented girls make Me, however.

Sounds like a fun time Mary Froggie.  and new fabric to fondle.  Lucky you.  Nice on the mugs and the snacks.   Flying.............Flaying..........you crack me up too.   Hehehe.   That was a party to remember.  

Fun with Mom, that's great Kim. 

A bit of a furr battle is going on in my lap.  Ms. Penny is curled up getting cuddles but Baby wants her space too, so they are pushing and showing at each other a bit,  ............well as much as two tiny little kids can push and shove.   

I guess I need to get rolling with my bedtime routine.  I've been trying to get a more reasonable bedtime that 2 or 3 am.

Just getting here today to post a comment. I think I'm caught up with reading. Sounds like it was a soup day for most.

I was out the door early today to go shopping with my Mom. Had a good day and did manage to find some stuff. Hopefully we will get the tree up this weekend. It was a full day to say the least.

Hope you all had a great day. Be back tomorrow.

Bobby Fly, Thel? Some new chef? I know Bobby Flay. He likes to cook a little. I crack me up. 

I love EB too, Barbara. I don't know why I don't watch her videos and jump into making the quilts. I have an e mail about her latest blocks or quilt. Divinity? We talked about divinity and date nut loaf today. One person used to get date nut loaf but doesn't have the recipe now. Myra makes it a lot, I haven't tried it in a long time. Maybe I should. I love that stuff. It's such an OLD recipe. Yum. Nice and sugary. Good for our diet. 

I think you are right, Rita. I had more of my turkey soup. I remembered the noodles this time. I think it's too salty, maybe if I add a little water, it will thin it down a little. 

I wish I could make potato soup just like my MIL did, Mary Alice. It was so good. 

It sure warmed up here today. Very cold this morning, but when I left sit and sew, I didn't even need a coat! I took some pretty gloves and some stuff similar to crunch n munch, it got stolen as many times as the rules allowed. So did Myra's gift, I like that. I like taking things people end up liking. Myra really liked the gloves, I think I am going to go to Kohl's again tomorrow and get some more. I got all the pillowcases cut out, and finished the pillowcases for B Sew Inn, and got four finished after I got home. They were all ready to sew up. 

Almost time to go to bed already. Another day in the books.

I know of which you speak, Barbara. Yuck, all day long,and you get a thread ball. Yuck. Yuck again. 

Yep, you are smart like that, Thel. Keep those pipes from freezing. We lived in a mobile home in South Carolina in the mid 70's, and the pipes would freeze in the winter if I forgot to leave the faucet dripping. I hated that. Was there food? Oh not at all. I took Chicken Enchilada dip and chips, and Paddy took chicken enchilada casserole, and there was fruit and lots of goodies, and desserts. Yum. Oh and we did dirty santa. That was fun. Poor Nancy kept having her item stolen. So, I was last to go, and stole her big insulated drinking mug, 30 oz, and there was also a coloring book and two FQ's. The FQ's are so cute, I think I am going to make some potholders with it. It would be perfect for four new potholders. Yippee! Maybe that will get me off my pillowcase binge. 

OK on to page 1...

Speaking of potato soup !!! I realize I have everything in the house for a corn chowder................emmmmmm.   That might be a meal for later this week.    

Comment by Thel in Mid-MO 9 hours ago

I'll have some of that jam please Rita !!!     The typing job sounds like it'll take a while.  I hope you enjoy typing.  

OH yah,  I have cabbage in the fridge too,  well,  soup is all softened up so that'll wait.  Pretty much my soup has turned into what we've lovingly called "Kitchen Sink Soup"  (some of anything and everything in the fridge).   I  don't add rice or noodles to the soup either Mary Alice.  I have it cooked and ready to add to the bottom of the bowl before adding the hot soup.  That way they maintain their texture.

I set out to do things and nothing turns out--go figure.  I did make the menudo.  Got 3 batches of it in the freezer now and some in the fridge for later.

I love soups!  I keep meaning to make potato soup and always forget.  A good chicken soup sounds good too.  We don't make it with noodles, but rice, and huge chunks of carrots, celery, potatoes, zucchini, and small ears of corn on the cob and some cabbage.

Looks like we have a big influence on each other's cooking,that is good, sort of like stone soup,all those soups sound good. I am making huckleberry/raspberry jam today, a casserole from the freezer, and a Cobb salad. I have a big typing job to do for dd1,bunch of legal documents, so BH geese are set aside for now.

The weather difference is really crazy.  I hope you and yours are staying safe Carol Ann.  Is this heat normal for you at this time of year?  

A couple of my church friends have the flu, Influenza Type A.  I sure don't know the difference etc and know I don't wanna get sick.  It's a food pantry trip tomorrow so wanna make sure to have minimal physical contact................same with church on Sunday.  I have a ride planned.  Everyone is rather touchy feely with their greetings so need to decide how I wanna handle that too.  I know it'll include the liquid sanitizer, the weather will allow gloves without looking like a geek just need to decide how NOT to breath in the germs...........Do I sound like a hypochondriac?   Probably.  but I don't wanna be a sick hypochondriac.    I crack me up.
