    Oh how I wish I was close so I could offer to help you with
    all the household chores and kid sitting.

    If this wasn't such a sad time I would offer (jokingly of course)
    to send some industrial strength velco to help with kid sitting,
    but seeing as this IS a sad time I will just offer my dearest thoughts
    for all to go well.

    oh louise i am not a sad sally kinda person. this is just life and one deals with it. and YES i could use the velcro. my brother's children need some exercises in listening. i'm gonna have to work with them on that next time they come stay with me. because i am not one who likes to keep telling children to stop doing what i told them to stop doing 5 minutes ago and 5 minutes before that. i am the time out - go take a nap - stop all that crying kinda auntie after i told you twice to stop it. yep send me all the velcro you can.

    Hey!!!!!!!!! you sound just like ME.

    My best friend of 32 years had a 6 year old daughter
    when my family moved 2 doors down from her and
    her family. Come spring break she needed a sitter for
    her daughter and asked me if I would do it.

    I told her yes being a sitter would be great that Penny
    and I would have fun that week IF she was good, if not
    she would be spending lots of time on the "time-out" stair
    with NO toys or anything to play with.

    Her mother liked me instantly because she KNEW right
    then I was not going to be a push over even though I was
    only 15 yrs old. Penny was the kind of child that could make
    the sanest of people want to drink, calling her a "problem"
    child would have been much to nice about it.

    From that day until they moved away to Michigan I was their
    ONLY babysitter for Penny, if I couldn't do it she would have
    a major melt down and crying jag.

    I was ALWAYS a firm, but fun baby sitter and all the kids liked it
    when I was in "charge" because I made it fun for them, but they
    also knew NOT to push me to far or I would not be the fun likable
    sitter anymore.

    It has been so long since I have had any dealings with young kids
    that I don't know if my patience to do it would last long.

    FULL mail box today

    Today I had a mailbox FULL and I mean it was so full
    that the mail carrier had to put part of my mail into the
    "big" mail box (used for bigger items being received).
    He also stuck a personal note in my box that said
    "popular much?"

    I got my last SP box, mail with my fq's from the May fq swap,
    a new cell phone case in purple for my new smart phone, plus
    numerous other mail. AND on top of all that I got 2 wonderful
    RAK's pictured below.



    #1 that I opened was Kristin (craftykk) had some random scraps
    fabrics with metallic gold and I LOVE them (I was needing to find
    more pink/mauve and purples with the gold).

    #2 that I opened was from Debbie (mooretll) was an adorable jar
    with two packages of cute buttons and 2 "button" themed fq's.

Size:  702.4 KBIsn't this the cutest!!! I was part of a swap that send 5" squares and most of these are from that swap. But I need your help. If anyone has a scrap of at least 5" square of animals that I could have, I would greatly appreciate it. This is the tumbler from Missouri Star Quilt Co. The lady had a tutorial using a 5" charm pack, but I could see it in animals.
