I skimmed the designs this am here at work. Planning on a closer look at home tonight.

Off to get my shingles vax in a bit. Ugh.

Janet, I already shopped the cat designs and bought the little cat zipper pouch. Both my sisters love cats so they may be getting these for Christmas.

Good morning everyone.

Barbara, thanks for the link.  I will have Lou Ann look at it & see what she thinks. 

For those of  you who love cats, Sweet Pea is having a 25% off sale on their cat related designs for today only!  I have been wanting to make the adorable tablerunner with the funny cats for a long time so I bought that design.  $11.25 for one of their designs is a bargain in my book.  Both of my sisters love cats so I'm going to make something for each of them for Christmas with a cat on it.

This isn't a raisin but it might work.


I didn't find the California raisins either. I wonder if you could have someone digitize a picture of them. That might be too much fuss though.

Ally you are so talented. I guess your arm is better but now you're dealing with gut issues. Don't wait to get the antibiotics if the diet plan doens't work. (My nurse instincts talking)

And Sheila, I hope it's just the heat and not kidney or heart issues.I'm assuming the DR checked those things out. I'm on water pills all the time because I have poorly functioning veins. My swelling is usually just the right leg and it is worse in hot weather for sure.

I have a crossbody bag to make for my sis for Christmas. Thankfully I have a pattern from a DIME workshop. I just have to refresh my memory on how to make it.

Have a great one.

Janet, that's a funny story. I looked online & couldn't find any raisen embroidery designs, but of course there were many for grapes. LOL Let us know what you come up with!

Ally, your thread paintings are beautiful!

This is going to probably sound like a weird question, but have any of you seen patterns for machine embroidered raisins?  The back story is: years ago my friend Lou Ann made a quilt for her husband's nephew, who is now 20 yrs old.  He has loved that quilt almost to death & wanted her to repair it.  She looked at it & told him he would be better off if she just made him a new one so she asked him what theme he wanted.  This was during a telephone call as she lives in Pasco WA & he lives in Fairbanks Alaska.  She thought he said raisins, which she did think was kind of odd.  What he had really said was ravens!  So I am going to machine embroider a label for her & she & I thought it would be funny to add some raisins to it as Cameron thought it was hilarious that she would think he wanted a raisin themed quilt.  She was thinking something along the line of the California raisins if such a design is available.  Any suggestions would be welcome.

Sheila, good to hear the pills are working. I take them for high PB and if I don't take it for some reason, I can tell by my ankles.

I'm trying to clean out, get rid of and pack for moving on Sept. 17. I'm sure it'll get done, but right now I'm not so sure. :)

Hey all ! Water pills working some. Couldn't take 1 today as I'm Yazi sitting while Heather gets her hair done. Feet are about half the size they were yesterday . Ally, one of my docs said there's a little bit of diverticulitis  with me but not worrisome yet, thankfully.  I've heard it's no fun. I love your thread paintings.

Sheila & Ally, I hope you both feel better soon.  

Ally I love your thread paintings!  

Sheila, if you have not used the Soft and Stable in the past, you will love it.  It sews like a dream

Ally - those thread paintings are beautiful! So sorry about the health issues. I hope you can rest and get well soon!
