    On my way home I stopped to check the mail, it was a bit early but was not planning on going out until later (which turns out that I don't have to now as there is not biathlon practice tonight) and there was a package there for me, I rush home, it says that it isn't my SS (which I didn't sign up for, wanted to but knew I was short time at the moment doing all the embroidery work) And a big heart with SURPRISE written in it. It was a huge touching surprise. A Quilting Angel, a big one, sent me the Dear Jane Software with the rulers so that I can participate in Jan with the sew along. Some know that we are having a few financial difficulties right now, DH was released medically from the military earlier this year and right now is doing retraining and his disability check doesn't come close to covering much of anything. So the program just wasn't going to happen any time soon, even when he is back at work it will take a bit to catch up on some of the bills.

    So, I am sending a huge hug and kiss out to my ANGEL, and it isn't the only one that I have either, just yesterday another box arrived, with something for under the tree for me, knowing that in situations like this that mom is usually the one to take a hit on days like this. (It is still wrapped so I have no idea what she sent me) ANd she sent me a little extra spending money as well to make sure that there was food on the table and a little room for an extra or two at the store.


    I am so touched by the generosity of the people of this board, I hope to be able to pay it forward when ever I can.

    There are some very large hearted people here on the board, They deserve more than a cyber hug that is for sure.

    Thanks Tuesy. I am finally getting answers, it is to bad that someone has to go to these lengths to get information, And he will be back to work soon I hope, he has a week and a half left on his course.

    I am so looking forward to loading the program and playing with it, I am waiting for a day or tow (though I might crack tonight) I am hoping to get some more work done before getting caught up in it. Though it looks like such fun. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

    How fun for you CB - sounds like you've been a good girl this year and Santa is coming a little early. I'm so happy you get to join the cyber sew in January. It's going to be so much fun. I'm hoping DH gets back to work soon and you guys land in a better spot. I do know how you feel. My DH has been out of work since late February and for him, it's been a total nightmare finding a job! We're keeping our fingers crossed that this next month will be good as he has 3 interviews lined up.

    Have a great holiday Cutie!

    I plan of spending time playing in between everything, so extra hugs and stuff go out to all the angels on the board, there are so many, and so many more would if they could. it is so great to see, I am looking forward to doing the dear jane, I am not sure that I can wait, or take that long, I may end up ahead of it. though that isn't a bad thing either. I hope that I do it justice.

    That doesn't seem like work though, and I enjoy helping when I can. I can't wait to finish off other things like the next mystery. :D

    I have opened the Box and installed the program.I read the first bit which is further than I thought that I would get tonight. It looks like so much fun!!!!!!!


    I hope my angel knows just how much even the thought means to me. I wish that I can do the same for more people and pass on this wonderful feeling.



    I am here on my iPod and thinking that it should be compatable so I can play with it anywhere!!!!!!!!!!

    Thank you SandPat, I just hope that I stand up to it and help pay it forward when I can.


    The delivery man hit again today, oh joy oh bliss!!!!!! I feel so blessed and loved. The delivery guy almost got kissed, I don't know if he knew it and was why he was standing back a bit from me. :shock: :mrgreen:


    And in it was some glorious things, a bunch of fabric, some fancy as the sender knows I sew all sorts of things, and a beautiful little quilt top that I can't wait to finish.
