Cindy- hang in there! A friend of mine just had her baby last week, she was 2 weeks past due! Ultrasound estimated baby at 9lbs, but she was only 7 something, so you just never know.

 

Owlvamp- unfortunately 8 homes, an 18 unit condo complex, and 2 businesses have already been lost, and 1 confirmed death. Over 9,000 acres burned as of last night. Such devastation...my heart aches for these people, I've lived in a couple of these neighborhoods. Here's the latest information I've found:

Send that rain to CA!

that would have been ideal,until the water subsides there are a lot of streets and interstate ramps closed due to flooding

Cindy I am glad the job news is good.  Now waiting for little one to arrive safely.

 

Kuddles, what a nice prize, I am sure you will have fun with it.

 

Anne 2x in one day from you =super.

 

I also hope they get those fires contained soon.  The destruction is so sad to see.  I have friends headed that way for their daughter's college graduation.

 

I had to carry plants back in and cover my tomato plants as we had frost last night.

hi all,

 

well, as it stands now, there are more FOR the one square a month biggest square

than there are for doing dual or multiple squares to finish up.

 

I added in the late comers to the yet to be biggest squares, so I think this is how it will stand......

 

There are six more  people to be biggest squares, that will take us through to Dec, in which we will have another Christmas People's Choice, or a secret santa type swapping of squares, and in jan, 2015. we will start our birthday month biggest square, is that alright with everyone. That way, those that are with us right at this moment, will all get a chance to be biggest square!!!

 

I like that it worked out like that...

 

Now if anyone else joins between here and Dec, we can either try to squeeze them in, or they will only qualify for the birthday bash BiggestSquare,ok ok, fine fine, good good, sigh,now that it has been decided,lol

 

So on the 25th, all you "biggest squares" out there, that haven't been yet, one of you will get a pm from me, askin you if you wanna!!!!!! lol that's easy!!!

 

I have few more puffys to mail, try to get that done tomorrow, or early nextt week, waiting on a couple of replys, if I don't get a pm, I will hold onto those couple, till if and when the recips decide to return to our waiting arms, lol

 

In no way should people not still join,we will get you on the list for birthday month asap if you join now!!! thanks all, for the voting and all, glad it worked out,either way was fine with me!!

Hey all!
Really sorry for not being around of late. Got quite a few problems going down in the Skoggy household at the moment.

 

Got some nice squarey eye candy to show you tomorrow. I got my choco squares out and took a pic (I haven't gotten round to sewing them together yet) and it takes up nearly all my kingsize bed. I love it! Big :hug to everyone who sent me squares for it.

 

Thought you'd like to see a pic of how big the Skoglets are now.

Felicia is going to be 3 in July. Where did that time go!?!? Isabel is growing up so quickly. She is just over 1½ now but seems so much older. :)

 

Hope everyone is well. x

UPDATE on the job in VA! Hubs just got an email from his soon-to-be supervisor and he has been approved to skip the requal and just do a modified refresher. He also got an email from the head of security that his clearance went through (wow, that was fast!). Now all he needs to do is clear medical and the job is his, unconditionally. YAY!

 

Yay!!! Congratulations!!!! Can't wait to have you in Virginia!!  :yay  :hug

 

Good morning chatty group! Wow!

 

Brenda, hugs and prayers for you and your dad! Keep us posted.

 

Cindy....hang in there, that baby must be coming soon! And Woot on your hubby's job!

Hope all your problems clear themselves up soon! And your girls are beautiful!!  :manyheart

 

:ty  Katy  for the beautiful squares I found in my mailbox this evening! I'm going to work on getting them added to my ghan tonight. They'll be lovely with what I have so far! Then maybe tomorrow I'll actually remember to post a picture of what I've got so far!

No big plans here for the weekend... tomorrow my sister is bringing Peanut over and we're going to have breakfast since DH will be out and about (He doesn't like breakfast food... crazy, i know!) and then go to an antique mall/flea market down the road. When DH gets home tomorrow evening, we're going to go to the Lebanese Food Festival in town for dinner. We're suckers for a food festival and they have these fabulous desserts, zalabias I think they're called?? Basically they're little balls of deep fried dough covered in fresh honey. They're hot and ooey and gooey and amazing!! 

 

With all the activity tomorrow, I think Sunday will just be a relax and get things done around the house day! I'm hoping to have at least one and maybe 2 puffies out this week. I still need to track down that elusive missing yarn from the squares several weeks ago! 

 

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! I'll be checking in once in a while!  :)
