We need to have an open Skype or something
so we can all toast to D. with our wine,
gorge on artisan cheeses and crackers, and
stuff the ballot boxes for PP.

I was just thinking how far $1 from each member would go
towards a charity too....like SM's for Africa.
Kiva is one great program we participate in. They have found
making a loan of under $10 can help a woman start a business to
support her family.

Keep us posted as the time gets close. I do not check the count very often, and this kind of thing slips past me. Thanks for the reminder.

I am a Quilter at heart. I love to play with fabrics, patterns and colors. Recently I have discovered I enjoy doing applique. I love making pictures. Using a sewing machine is much easier than counted cross stitch or oil painting for me. I enjoy landscape quilting as well. I am working on my first applique project in the spring of 2014.

Agreed, if the rest of those guys can glut out at banquets and diners campaigning for going on 2 years, we can toast for a few hot summer months.

You California, Michigan, Aussie wine growers, how about we lift our skirts, step into the tubs, and stomp some grapes to keep the supply flowing at PP's summer house--a dose of anti-oxidants to preserve PP's brain cells for all the vital decisions she will make in our futures....

I am mostly outside these days clearing a bit of land to raise chickens.. since who but the rich can afford eggs nowadays..

So, if you want to send me that l0 bucks to start a business with.. .I can put it towards the chicken coop.. And sell the extra eggs.. so I should qualify doncha think....

With $$ how can we be sure you wouldn't head to the nearest fabric store to add to your stash? We could stuff the ballot boxes with parts of our stashes instead of dollars too....that way there is no federal investigation down the line and the Pink House can be re-decorated in style.

Since we do (a lot of us) pay to help the site up and running, maybe they could draw the name of one of us to be given an airplane ticket to a fabric meca and then be filmed trying to only buy enough fabric to fill our suitcase and not go over the wieght limit? Comedy and drama at the same time.

Ha ha!
Imagine a TSA agent telling one of us "Strip Search!", then having to go thru 37 layers of smuggled fabric wrapped around the body.

Or how about our own cargo ship with containers full of fabric from Japan, India, Italy, etc??!!
International fabric scraps raining from the heavens upon PP's victory, rather than confetti....

this is sounding very exotic!!! When I hear of fabrics from Italy and pretty much anywhere but the US my ears are tweaked.
I am only 5 hours from Dallas lets have the party at pigling's house.
