    Darn, that cute little bag doesn't have purple (my favorite color), so guess it isn't for me. But then, Buslady, I could learn to like the other colors...

    Aw, Jaba. I did have you but since I have three cats and you are extremely allergic, I asked Lori to switch. I DID NOT want you breaking out in hives from something I sent you. So sorry...

    Buslady -- gorgous bag. Those colours really pop!

    I received the nicest package of goodies from catpawski. 30's fabric, a book on piping, emery boards, a pretty notpad, an extra big butterfly paperclip, some Thread Heaven wax and lots more.

    Thank you sew much. I will certainly enjoy the terrific goodies.

    I received my package today from Knitette. Thank you very much. I will post picture tomorrow. I am so excited that I received something from Scotland. My ancestors were from Scotland. I love everything and I already ate the candy. It was good too! Yummy.

    Good morning all. Can't believe most sp's have received their pkgs and thats wonderful. Started working on my SP's gift last night after work and so far its looking good. I figured if I spend at least 1-2 hrs sewing it then I should be done by Friday or Sat. and it'll be in the mail by Monday! At work right now and definitely did not want to come in today Everyone have a great day!

    I'm sorry too Belfrybat, it usually has not been a problem because everyone has been very careful about the cat hair. If I know that my sender has cats then my hubby usually goes through the package first and makes sure it's okay (no hair ) I have only received 1 package that was sent with lots of cat hair attached, but that was a big problem. Literally ran for the RX and skin lotion but it was my own fault also because I opened it. Most ladies I'm sure make it a point to check what they're sending. On another note I received an item from one of my SP's yesterday that she had ordered online. I asked for a bobbin case that would hold the bigger Juki 98 bobbins and she had it sent. I quilt the table runners, mats,etc. on this machine and they are just rolling around in the drawer. So happy to get this, maybe I can keep them organized now. Will show a pic when I know who it is that sent it.

    I'm so pleased the toffee didn't melt. I don't often send sweets as a lot of states are too hot. Not a problem we have here, even in summer, lol.

    It's a pop-up hairbrush - the pic should explain all, lol. The flag is 'The Saltire' which the Scottish flag (St. Andrew's Cross).

    Boy, do I miss all of you! I have been gone for 2 month and it feels like years. My sweet husband is finally going home today after 30 days in the hospital! He has been cleared to eat clear liquids, but will still go home with a feeding tube. The stomach drain will be blocked off and his pic line removed. He has lost so much weight and muscle mass. It will take weeks for him to build up the strength to go back to work. Hopefully, we will find a new normal around our house. We have the new baby, her parents, our younger daughter and the two of us! One thing I know I want to do is sit at my machine and sew. I haven't done that for a month and I miss it. I brought some hexies to work on, which was great. But I miss hearing the hum of my sweet little machine.
