    Suzyq nope I am still waiting for my package too. By the time mine gets here I will be old and wrinkled like a prune. Lol
    There comes a time in life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh, forget the bad, and focus on the good. So, love the people who treat you right. Think good thoughts for the ones who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of LIFE...Getting back up is LIVING...

    Oh my I hope your feeling better soon. One of my daughters was bitten literally in her armpit when she was 15 years old by a brown recluse spider and she ended up hospitalized for several days from a reaction to the meds they gave her. She has a hole in her armpit the size of a fifty cent piece because the venom from the spider actually rots your skin. So hopefully it isnt that bad for you. Get better soon.

    Good morning all! Lovely bag I may say and such a wonderful pkg! Hope everyone has a good day. I'm at work, and would rather be home sleeping right now but I'll make it. Hope those who are waiting for their pkgs will get them soon!

    The Kitties Nosy Rosy(darker one) & Honey Bee LOVE their new toys. It's the first they got something other than the empty box. These are my Christmas Presents from last year that we adopted. They are sisters.

    Here they are ... all tuckered out. As you can see the mouse found a new home on the windowledge and the white one was last seen getting tossed the kitchen. LOL.

    Again We all Thank You Ms. Lori.

    Sincerely,
    Tricia

    I am one of the "bad" girls this month. My package went out late, so I am sorry to my SP, and one of you won't be waiting much long, I hope!! Great packages coming in.

    Quiltymom: I received your package a few days ago. Thanks for all of it. I will use the 9 patch pattern booklet and the embroidery designs. The postcard is cute and so are the toe warmers and notebook. Thanks also for the 3 fat quarters, the lovely mini bag and stencil. The chocolate mints are gone but I still have the charms balls, unopened.

    Secret pal your package is on its way and should be delivered by the 26th according to tracking. thank you to every one concerned about the spider bite. they gave me the scientific name for the spider but that was way to difficult to remember. But it was about the size of a quarter, a orangeish brown color with dark brown spots. it kind of reminded me of a wolf spider in its body shape. it has a smooth body, no hair like some spiders...

Why couldn't you pull out just maybe 3" more than you need, cut off what you need and lock it in position so you could just continue to pull it out the next time by pulling on the 3" you left extended? Ask your husband if I'm in the ballpark in my thinking. You could duck tape the lock maybe so it wouldn't accidentally move.
    What do the rest of you think?????
    His lock is broken LOL. I am going to go shopping tomorrow and see what I can find. Duck tape sounds good.

    I received a great package from Starshine today! I got a yard of white on white fabric, some pattern sheets, some coffee packets, a hand-knit dishcloth in my favourite colour, and 2 great books - one on crazy quilt stitches, and one on making 3-D flowers. I can't wait to read both bookName:  image.jpg

    I was lucky enough to receive one of those knitted dish cloths too. It is so pretty, I won't use it. I love it.

    Hi Fayser......have done a little snooping around and think I'll just order mine from Amazon. If you can't find it cheaper or don't want to run around, google: Tajima HL-16BW......it's a 16' Carpenter Scale Tape Measure with 3/4" Steel Blade. I figure it won't be wasted because I'll probably make snap purses for Christmas and could use another one for a makeup bag.

    snap bags are really handy.You can make them a little longer and they are good for sunglasses or reading glasses or a camera etc. Mary

    Bilben glad I found some things that you could use. I'll be watching to see what shows up on the Doll Quilt swaps in the next several months. If you like, the cloths can be used as facial washcloths instead of dish cloths but I wouldn't suggest interchanging usage. Looks like delivery was 2 weeks so that was pretty good, of course there wasn't a need to have customs translate the address either. Hopefully more are getting their packages today.

    Well "tomorrows" have come and gone and still no package. The mailman must think Ive got dementia or something and thinking I dont know what I'm talking about. Maybe I will make my own secret pal package and mail it to myself. Lol...maybe thats not a good idea after all. I'm sure he thinks I'm nuts but if I mail my own package to myself..that would just confirm his suspicions. Lol
