    Wow 12+ inches that might delay things a bit. plus so many packages are being processed now too for holidays. At least enjoy a snow day of staying in and sewing/crafting. Hope those stray packages arrive soon.

What a wonderful package of goodies!!! Thank you, Knitette!!!
    So glad you liked your package. I love searching for hand-crafted items and Scottish souvenirs/novelties. You may not have noticed, but there are Thistle flavoured and Heather flavoured tea bags in with the Whiskey ones.

    Lori - hope you're making a good recovery.

    Krystyna - so pleased to see you looking so well!

    Swap package received from Starshine

    Received an awesome package from Tricia - aka starshine yesterday; she went out of her way to find a fabric panel that I had on my wish list - can't thank you enough for that. Also included was a handmade pin-cushion (it is much needed); an ornament for my feather tree; a red and white stuffed dog - guess I'll name him "Target"; a red and white snowflake fabric; chocolate covered coffee beans that are to die for and a beautiful Christmas card. Thank you for such a wonderful package.

    For the eye mask I traced around one I already had. The first aid kit tutorial is at http://www.positivelysplendid.com/20...-tutorial.html
    I don't think you have to put all that in. Just go to positivelysplendid.com and look for it. It is really easy and fun to make. I am using a hair tie instead of the ribbon. I will try to post a pic tomorrow morning. I'll also post the rice packs.

    K great to see your smile! Wonderful packages coming in all! For those of you dealing with the stormy weather hang tight. Though I live in FL we will be receiving rain and our temps will drop, ok not as much as up north and west but for us the 40's is a drop If you don't have to go anywhere stay home and quilt or get some needed rest before the holidays approach!

    Dabbler lets trade houses for awhile. You can have all the cold you want right here in Wyoming. Got snowmobiles you can use and go to Yellowstone Park and see it in the winter and all. It's a balmy 11 degrees right now and 10:41 am........snow covered ground, you'd be in glory heaven. Let me know when you're ready, trust me I could be packed by tonight.

    Nice packages. I am still sitting on the bench waiting for mine. However, I needed to come inside today. It snowed last night and the wind chill is 13 degrees. Brrrrr!

    Well, your photo is no worse than the one I posted on RAK recently. We just never like those taken. The quilts are wonderful - and yes, doggies always love quilts with their people.

    Dear Secret Pal, I shipped your package on Dec. 16 by Priority Mail. The USPS still shows your package in Pensacola, a 1 1/2 hr. drive from my house. Hopefully you will get it before Christmas! I promise, it wasn't me! Fayzer

    well Shucky Durn. No package for me today either. Leaving tomorrow to go and have Christmas with the kids and grandkids so I won't know if it comes while I am gone or not. So whoever had me as their SP I am not ignoring that I got a package, just not home to let you know.

    Are you close to the south entrance to Yellowstone Park - I was out visiting sister in MT years ago and loved the area; it's absolutely beautiful; my perfect winter morning is when the sun is shining, the snow glistens, there is no wind and it's around zero - if your lucky there might even be sun dogs hanging around the sun; how can you not love it! The air is just fresher this time of year.

    I love Winter, too. We are expecting our first snow of the year tonight. My shovel is ready for the morning! I can't wait! I did buy some sleds for the DGK's so about 6 inches of snow would really be appreciated about now! Brenda that is a great package you sent Sewdamncute...love the look of the packages that are arriving..Postman came today and handed me some cards but no package from my SP! Hmmmmmm...
