    I am so happy that many are mailing early! That helps to get the swap done on time and can start on the next one faster! Thank you.

    We never mix vodka with fishing, the vodka is for AFTER, while sitting around the fire, although Mart likes to have a beer or two while fishing. Marty is a pyromaniac and builds fires from the minute she gets up to the time we go into the cabin which is sometimes around 1am usually, then we would play scrabble, now with the cancer she couldn't stay up that late, the day just tires her out to much. I always kid her and say they can see the fires she makes from space.

    I am making those also (the embroidery earrings like K is making).

    She has been corrupting ME (again) and i have been getting more
    designs.

    I have developed this "liking" for making earrings because they are
    pretty, easy and FAST to make, the hardest part is picking the colors.

    I also made some peacock feathers and LOVE those!

    HERE is a picture of some earrings I made this week 2 sets of peppermint
    candy (one ALL metallic thread, the other with a little metallic), ladybugs,
    feathers, and, seahorses.

    I have sand dollars, pink ribbons and can't remember what else still on the
    hoop waiting for more to finish "filling" up the hoop.

    But I LOVE K's different color seahorses.

    Vodka? What vodka? *hic*
    I love, love, love the sand dollars. Making them in sets of earrings and pendants ... but what to hang the pendants from? I'm now running some in white with glitter thread details (no, not real glitter ... more like a shiney translucent thread -- laser colors) but what a PITA to stitch out. I need to try the needles Louise just sent me ... and then I will also run some sets with organza in the middle! No sand dollars for stinky girls so be nice!

    Louise, those are fabulous. A note to someone who shall remain nameless ... I was going to buy the ladybug earrings to make some ... but someone else who shall remain nameless beat me to the punch, so I am bugless.

    K,

    Did you get the needles yet? TRY them, I am almost SURE that you
    are going to find a BIG improvement with stitching out metallic thread
    and FSL.

    In fact that is about the ONLY needles I seem to use anymore for ALL
    embroidery because I find that everything just stitches out so nice for
    me with them.

    Dear SP, dummy me ordered you something special. Unfortunately I did not see that the order was coming from Canada. The order was shipped on June 2nd. Now they are telling me it won't be here until the19th to the 21st. I am so mad at myself. I am going to wait until the amen hour to mail your package. I am hoping and praying it will get here by the deadline date. Otherwise, I will have to mail it separately. Fayzer

    Wow those are beautiful earrings, Krystyna and Quilty-Louise. I love them

    Also, SP, your box should be going out today, still adding a couple more things! Then it'll be headed toward the East Coast!

    Awe, those are so cute! I want you for my SP~ I like them all! but really like the bottom pair. Wedding dress was not to hard I just used a canning "bath" pot, and did it before I sewed it together. I got the idea from a crocheted shawl that I found in antique store. The girl working there that day told us, "my mom dyes them with tea all the time to make them look old!" I am quite sure her Mom would not have wanted her to tell us that! LOL... But it worked really good for the dress and matching slippers and trim on hat... Really was a fun day, and it cost me less than $10.00 because I got the fabric at 2nd hand store! for two dollars! with all the lace and trim too! I love shopping second hand!
