    Ok, SP!! Your box went to the Post Office today. Scheduled Delivery Date is 12/7/2013

    Hm, let me think, it was full as I could stuff it. LOL It has merry things inside. It has doggy treats inside that mine shared from their own box and they don't do that often.

    You like Christmas fabrics, so it has some of that.
    You like helping those that are Far Far Away from their families!

    Received my package today from dotcomdtcm-she was really with it. Thank you so much for all the wonderful things-made my day! There was a master carpenter pattern,Christmas cards, homemade cards, snowflake brads-that will be so cute for a scrapbook page of my new granddaughter,a very nice tree ornament out of Christmas material, a Christmashot pad and a crocheted one, a note pad, some fat quarters and a very cute pin cushion that she said was made by Lynnie. I will try to get a picture posted when I see if my son-in-law can figure it out. I am technologically challenged. Hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

    Hi Guys! Thanks for the prayers. I'm not dead yet. Of course they still don't know what it was or why my blood pressure spiked to 185/120. All good now, I guess. They did a angiogram and I'm still a little sore from that but ... ha! my arteries are not clogged at all. Only 20% in a couple of little spots. So please pass the butter.

    Good news Krystyna! Glad it doesn't appear to be life threatening, but hope they find out what caused it - you don't need a repeat! Hope your DH is on the mend too. Things were a lot bleaker this time last year, so chin up!

    Krystyna - so glad to hear you didn't have a hear attack, and WTG on the clear arteries.
    I received a nice package yesterday from Dotcomdtcm. I don't think I've ever received one this early in the month--she is really speedy! I'll post pics later today. Thanks, Dot.

    I mailed my SS package yesterday and it is winging its way to a far away land and I also received a most generous package from my SS partner Verna2197 yesterday. Beautiful things she sent and I will post pics later today (I have to do the dreaded housecleaning today plus make table decorations for 30 tables at the local senior center for our Christmas party on Thursday) But I did want to thank Verna for her great selections she sent and Verna, I hope you are feeling better. Warm hugs and get well wishes sent your way.

    I posted my parcel on Thursday. I wanted to be super-early as I've no idea how long they're taking at this time of year. You:

    - didn't get the thing you wanted the most.....
    - didn't get anything hand made.....
    - I forgot to put in your Christmas card (and I'm not sending it as I think it might get there before your parcel)....
    - also forgot to put in the spool of thread which must have rolled on to the floor......

    You're really going to have to repeat, "It's the thought that counts.............." and believe it too!

    I am so glad you like everything my Dh really did good picking everything out. Will have to send him more often. Went back to the doc yesterday and he thinks a lot of my troubles is coming from my back he was really surprised that my knee wasn't completely healed, so now I have to make a appt with my back surgeon oh yes this s going to be fun. Last time I talked to him he wanted to fuse 5 vertebrae together and I told him there is no way. Now we will see what he says.

    Thanks everyone for the well wishes! The worst part of it was the anesthesia. The doctors told me that I could watch the whole thing on a screen. I said, NO THANKS!!! Give me some knock out drops and plenty of them. Well, there went the next couple of days, LOL!

    SP, you asked for something very specific and I was finally able to go shopping last night, so your package will be on the way on Monday. I sure hope you like it all. I just need to make something special for you today.

    Good news! I think we may have found a house. It's a little closer to the water than we'd like, but it's a nice neighborhood and the neighbors seem lovely. One is my old neighbor's son! It's bigger than our old home and I think it will work nicely for a blended family (son and daughter in law til they get back on their feet). There's a huge room that will be my studio, gorgeous bathrooms -- one has a jacuzzi tub -- and a pool (not in the bathroom ). The sun porch serves as a laundry room and there is a stinkin' fancy dryer that is also a dry cleaner! There's a formal dining room that oddly has a loft at one end that I guess a spry guest could sleep in. Now all we need is some furniture, hahaha! But we've run into some of our long time friends who do estate sales and they've promised us rock bottom prices. So ... if all goes well, quilting retreat at my house this summer!

    omg I just checked on my 2nd SP package and I can't believe it. I mailed this package on the 4th and its just now out for delivery today. Took 5 days to get where it is suppose to go. This package was suppose to be delivered on the 6th. I am so upset by this.

    No wonder I haven't heard anything from her. She is only a few states away from me, not going clear across the world.
