    Stacey, I am so glad your package arrived before Christmas...I was sweating that since it was packed full of snowmen and Christmas fabric! It was such a fun package to put together and I am glad you liked my "homemade" things. I was on a roll for sure...at least for me! Merriest Christmas to everyone.

    Lori I like the sound of taking the train. I keep thinking I will do that next time I go back to NJ! Please be well.

    Yea, My package arrived in Canada. I wanted it there for Christmas since it was full of snowmen! Now I just sit and wait to see if mine gets here soon...so exciting to wait for the postman!

    YAY! Heard from my SP yesterday.... still waiting for my box to arrive! this is what I have been working on while waiting for my box! Here you go!

    1 tube sock
    1/2 c of rice
    poly fiber fill
    twist tie or 1/2in ribbon
    pom for hat
    googlie eyes
    puff paint for the nose
    thin black marker
    buttons
    floral wire
    hot glue gun and glue
    fabric of your choice..
    1. fill the bottom of the sock with rice
    2. Stuff the poly fiber fill on top of the rice to make the body
    3. tie off so you can make the head
    4. take more poly fiber fill to make the head.
    5. Tie it off again this will be your head
    6. fold top of the sock down around the head
    7. hot glue the pom into the center of the folded sock
    8. cut a 2 1/2 in strip 30 in long. fold in half and sew make a tube so you can turn it right side out
    9. iron the tube.
    10.take the tube with the finished end and place it around the head of the snowman.
    11. Cut the tube make sure you have a little to tuck under the finished end
    12. hot glue all the way around the bottom (cuff of sock) start with the cut end and place fabric around the hat.
    13. hot glue the finished edge down you want to cover the cut edge.
    14. the rest of the tube will be your scarf. cut it to the length you want after you tie it.
    15. cut out mittens, I used applique heat n bond to the back of the gloves you will need to cut out 4 of the gloves for the front and back
    16. place the floral wire on one side of the glove with the adhesive on it...place the other on top and iron. repeat for the other glove
    17. remove the scarf and wrap floral wire around the neck of the snow man a couple of times . I used a pencil to get the curly in the wire. Just wrap it around it.
    18. hot glue the bottons on the body
    19. Put the face on your snowman, the puffy paint will take about an hour to dry, while it is drying I lay them on their back.
    20. re tie the scarf around the neck...

    And it is complete!
    Let me know if you have any questions!
    Susan

    I didn't have a dowel at the time and I wanted to hang it so I tied it with ribbons for now until I get one.
    Merry Christmas to you and all the board members !!

    I just received my package, from Japan. It didn't include a screen name so hopefully you see this. I received a fantastic package full of goodies. Fruit snacks (hiding those just for me), chocolates (again hiding), for my furbabies a bag of treats, kamille hand cream, a Japanese calendar tea towel, a Christmas panel in a very pretty blue, 5 cuts of Christmas fabric, 3 fat quarters that are just my style and colors, needles, and a most beautiful needle case to add to my collection. For a first attempt at making a case you did a fantastic job! It is so well done and I love the colors.

    It's me! I thought I put my screen name on the label, but maybe not! I am so glad you like the needle case! It was fun, but a little scary, as it was uncharted territory!

    Checking delivery confirmation site, it states that my SP package was delivered around 9:00 a.m. this morning in the big state of TEXAS. I do hope my SP liked the items in her package. It was a lot of fun putting it together.

    Yes I got all the lovelies that allthreecats have been showing off. The knitted hat came at the perfect time as it is cold and rainy here. And also got some patterns and a full kit of batiks for a table runner. A pin cushion filled with emery sand, Pretty fabric. The festive mug rugs will get good use this season.
    My Nephew said it was Christmas for me JTHANK YOU Ann

    Eureka. After nearly a week, I'm finally able to get my leg into my car and drive without passing out. I can bend my leg about 60 degrees now, but still have to baby it when moving it side to side. Still, I'm ecstatic at the improvement. Once I'm done on the computer, I plan to elevate it for the rest of the evening to get the swelling down.

    That said, I was able to drive to the Post Office today, and my SP from the mid-Atlantic coast should receive her package on Wed. Sorry it's late getting out, but at least it should be there before Christmas. Hint - Fassett.

    Love all the packages. Very nice things everyone is receiving.

    To my SP mailing off your package today. Lori don't worry will send you pm once its mailed!

    SharonAnne, glad to know your're getting better with the knees and getting the rest you need!

    Lori, sounds as if you're getting a bit better, take it easy before you go on your trip!

    Quilty-Louise, aren't those Kuerigs great?! I have one and though I don't drink coffee my boyfriend does but I do buy the hot chocolate kcups (not starbucks though, they don't carry it ).

    Everyone have a great day. We just had our christmas breakfast here for staff meeting and it was great! I'm looking forward to being off all of next week and won't come back to work till the 2nd of Jan. Going to catch up on my sewing and embroidery that's for sure!
