Did you all know that there are 323 3/4 pages of members who have never posted anything on the site? There are 30 members per page. That is roughly 9700 people who have joined this site and have never spoken to us.:shock: 1252 members have only spoken to us once. On the other side of the scale there are 4 members in the over 3000 club :up: , 3 in the over 2000 club :bg: , 8 in the 1000 + club :smile: , and 145 members that are in the 100 to 1000 range :bluesmile .

Susie,

I didn't really have the time, I was procrastinating. But it only took me about 10 minutes to gather thie info.

Yes Patty, quilting teacher, I am working on my homework. I am down to two choices for my block. The colors hopefully will just come to me.

Gina....the reason why I like your avatar so much is because you look like an "imp."

really nothing else to do, Gina?

like me - reading this.

I too am amazed at the number of people who join but never post - some of them have been inactive for a long time - how about some house cleaning??
love and kisses, Jan

I know that I'm listed under 3 separate names because of having to re-register do to log on difficulties. Any way to get rid of the ones I don't use any longer?

An imp is a mythological being similar to a fairy, frequently described in folklore and superstition.

Imps are usually described as mischievous more than seriously threatening, and as lesser beings rather than more important supernatural beings. The attendants of the devil are sometimes described as imps. They are usually described as lively and having small stature.


Some accounts of imps treat them as capable of being turned to good, because they are so desperately lonely they would do almost anything even commit good deeds to have a committed friend; however, it is regarded as almost impossible for any imp to fully forsake its "impish" ways.

Other than being an attendant of the devil ths does describe me quite well.

Patty,

I can't take credit for any of that. I just copied and pasted from a dictionary site. Although a poem about being an imp could be interesting. Although a story might be even better. HMMMMM! A sewing/quilting imp. Ideas are begining to roll around in my head.

procrastination - the act of procrastinating; putting off or delaying or defering an action to a later time


hmmmm... procrastinating......kinda.

But you have to be in a good mood to sew, or all hell breaks loose. And after reading this site, who wouldn't be happy??
Cheers, Soph.

I'm happiest when I am sewing!
