    Received my wonderful package from CherylW today, thanks so much for everything you sent. She made a beautiful table runner with some very pretty fabrics, a swatch of Valentine fabric, 7 wonderful blue fat quarters, a cutting mat, emery board, sanitizer, eye mask, note paper and pen, candle, scissors with a cutting tool for cutting wrapping paper, a Mary Engelbreit applique book, cute cupid, Valentine tissues, treats for Buckley (he enjoys this swap as much as I do, lol), and my favorite peanut M&M's. Thanks so much Cheryl for a great package, love it all.

    Cathy, here's your picture...I enjoyed fixing the pkg for you. Was especially fun since we have the same last name! And you are most welcome.

    GrandmaPeg that is a beautiful runner Cheryl made! Would love to make one of those! Nice pkgs coming in! Let's keep it going until all of our swappers get theirs and we could move on to February! Valentine's is my 2nd favorite holiday (christmas being first) and love decorating with hearts and all! For those of you dealing with the cold, keep warm as much as you can. Nite!

    Down here in SE Louisiana it's been in high 60's/low 70's after all that rain we had two weeks ago. Things are starting to bloom. What a crazy year it's been weather-wise. If it stays this warm, that means our winter only lasted maybe 2 weeks. But that also means more heat, more mosquitoes, more humidity, more sweating... Cold is not always so bad.

    So the person whose name I got, got the name of the person whose name I got on the mug rug swap! Did you get that?

    Well today is Burns Night which celebrates the life and works of Robert (Rabbie) Burns - the Bard (poet) of Scotland. 25th January was his birthday (b.1759) and this is traditionally celebrated in Scotland with a Burns Supper, usually formal, when the poem 'To a Haggis', amongst others, is read.
    Many of you will be familiar with 'Auld Lang Syne' sung at New Year.
    This is another of his many poems, about winter, I thought you might like;

    Winter: A Dirge (1781)

    The wintry west extends his blast,
    And hail and rain does blaw;
    Or the stormy north sends driving forth
    The blinding sleet and snaw:
    While, tumbling brown, the burn comes down,
    And roars frae bank to brae;
    And bird and beast in covert rest,
    And pass the heartless day.

    "The sweeping blast, the sky o'ercast,"
    The joyless winter day
    Let others fear, to me more dear
    Than all the pride of May:
    The tempest's howl, it soothes my soul,
    My griefs it seems to join;
    The leafless trees my fancy please,
    Their fate resembles mine!

    Thou Power Supreme, whose mighty scheme
    These woes of mine fulfil,
    Here firm I rest; they must be best,
    Because they are Thy will!
    Then all I want-O do Thou grant
    This one request of mine!-
    Since to enjoy Thou dost deny,
    Assist me to resign.
    Lang may yer lum reek. (I'm a knitter - hence - 'Knit-ette'. Confuses a lot of people!)

    Wow, what a neat poem/song. I'll be singing Auld Lang Syne all day now. Thanks for all the international flavor you bring to us, Knitette!

    Thank you Kathleen. This might be my last month on here as I'm a bit fed up. Neither of my December parcels arrived, although one SP has emailed a few times saying she's going to post it......
    Still waiting on one from this month too.

    Ohhhh PLEASE don't leave us.

    I PROMISE if I have to I PERSONALLY will make it up to you!!!
    even though I KNOW you received my sp gift this month. I will
    send you another.

    I try to help as much as I can to ALL swappers here, but our
    international swappers seem to get hit hard because we can't
    track out packages to them. This month was my FIRST international
    swap and I would not be apposed to doing it at least 2-3 times a year.

    Knitette, I mailed a package to a friend overseas August 31, 2012. He never got the package of CD's I made for him. I made more and mailed them again 2 months after the first package went out. He got that 2nd package withing 3 weeks. Yesterday he wrote to say the first package finally arrived almost 5 months later. It is a shame we can't track our packages after they leave the states. He lives in a third world country, which I am know is quiet different from Scotland. I paid extra to have my last package signed for every step of the way to make sure it arrived. I hope you won't leave us.

    fayzer, my sp

    Fayzer sent me a great package for January! My goodies include an angle ruler, seam measure, hangers for rulers, little embroidery scissors, fabric in my favorite colors plus a panel, kleenex holder she made, tape measure, apron pattern, thread, micron pen, a daily journal, and my fabulous purse.

    She also enclosed a very nice note and a card with her watercolor site on it. I'm going to check that out next. Her paintings are beauiful!

    Thanks fayzer, I love it all. You were so generous.........have a loving and peaceful time with your family in February.
