Lori that is such a cute puppy on the blog. We haven't had much snow in northern IL, but I do love the clean look of it.

On a quilty note, What am I going to do with that challenge fabric? :-P

Lori, I have referred to the blog several times. You have lots of information there we need to read and refer back to.
I missed the Sunday tab this week. I will pay attention next Sunday.

Gonesew, I have a gmail account (gmail email). If you want users that do not have specific accounts to be able to post, you need to open comments up to anonymous users.

Normally I would say not to do that, but with the blog only being used for a few more months it shouldn't be too bad. You can monitor the comments and only release the ones with signatures, or delete any bad one once a day. Call me if you need help. But not today until after 5, I'm having a root canal at noon, by 5 I should be able to talk. Smile

Im back! The DDS wasn't as bad as I had heard, but it wasn't what I would call a picnic. Big Grin

Still tender, and I go back in 3 weeks to finish the procedure. The best part is he is working on a tooth that has a crown. So he is drilling thru the crown and in the end says he will fill the 3 holes just like a cavity. Wait - thats the Best Part??? It should save me a little $ at least.

And on a quilty note: My QOV top is done, I will get a pic of it during the day tomorrow to post.

I've had a couple root canals in my day - I would rather give multiple births!

Again we didn't reach 13 so, again, no prize this week.

I posted a new Sunday Sur-Prize though, hopefully more will join in!

Really? It's that slow? Here I've been trying to answer as soon as I can on Sunday because I thought that everyone would be playing. There is a lot to do in the area. I don't live that far away and I'm surprised at all there is to do. How do we have time for classes and other retreat activities?

Well, I think I found the answer but I don't have a gmail account any longer and don't want a new one. I won't post what I found so that someone else can find it Smile I do read what is there every so often but since I don't have one of those accounts I don't post anything Smile You may be getting more traffic than you realize.

you may send a PM if you don't have email.

for some reason there aren't a lot playing. If things don't pick up I may start throwing the player's names in a hat and choosing a winner that way...

Come on ladies. Lets start playing this game on the blog. If more of us start playing I may have a chance to win a prize.
At any rate, if you haven't looked at blog recently there is a lot of neat information on there. I can't wait to see Pennsylvania!
