    Don't know how that happened, but someone must have been a Very good girl for the post to get that package through so fast!! I sent it First Class, if that makes a difference! It will be interesting to see, I had 2 iinternational pkgs that went out, the other to Australia. I will have to keep my eye open and see how long that one takes. I am glad you like it all.

    busylady - I shipped a package to Australia for the December Doll Quilt swap and it took between 2-1/2 to 3 weeks to get there. Lynnie25 said it's usually a solid two weeks between the US and Australia.

    I'm one of the lucky few - we have a very helpful postal service in our community. They see me coming in every month to ship packages out and the first time I had an international package my postage was $48 and change; I thought wow - never again, I learned the trick to international rates is to keep your package under four pounds.
    Be good to yourself - do one thing each day that makes you smile.

The blades last forever but let me know if you can't find them in Scotland, I ordered a box of them and would be glad to share.
    Thanks Jaba - we can't get them here. I read some very good reviews, so keen to try it - won't be too long I can tell you...... Here's hoping I don't do myself an injury!
    Lang may yer lum reek.

I don't often know the answer. Ho Ho. I am gettiang a little punchy. Leaving in a little while for a 2 day training about 3 1/2 hours from home. Yes, it will be work, but it will be "away" and I have needed that. Whop Whop!! Gonna see my dog, and there is a LOT of show there. Going to Cadillac. I know there are some members that live near there. I love that area. YeeeHaaa!!!!

    With regard to the two from December, I think what you folks say is, 'I'm over it'

    Never look down on anyone, unless you are helping them up.
