    I will keep you all company on the bench and bring a tall glass of blackberry iced tea.
    Never look down on anyone, unless you are helping them up.

    Morning all! Great pkgs coming in. TGIF! I'm so glad that its the end of the week so that I can sew! May plan on going to the lqs this weekend and/or joanns. I do need to clean out my sewing room though but one never knows what they can find in their own stash that's been missing or a repeat of something I already have! Everyone have a great day!

    Well, my memory was jogged. By a great package from Heather, I think her board name is Yankeegirl. Laughed, with DD, I was on the phone talking to her when I opened the package and found a roll of pink and brown plaid DUCT TAPE!! I have been wanting to buy some for crafting with DGD, it never occured to me to put it on my wish list!! It will be on the next one. LOL Lots of great stuff in the package, it is sitting on my desk at work until DD comes up later. I will have her spread it out and take a picture for me. Fabric, TRUFFLES, wind chime, magazines, candles, Insulated glass, sticky notes...... did I say duck tape? Worth mentioning twice!! Made me smile, thank you sooooooo much Heather. Heather is a "newbee", and she did a wonderful job on this swap. Welcome aboard and many more to come. Sounds like a wedding toast, but it does fit. LOL

    Thanks Vicki W for an awesome package. She sent a vintage apron that her aunt had made-how special is that? Will take good care of it. Received some puppy treats (Buckley enjoys this swap as much as I do), 3 half yards of pretty blues, 2 half yards of black and white (for a future quilt), carmex, a darling bag filled with buttons, and 2 magazines.
    Thanks so much!!

    No. You actually said DUCT tape.
    Thank you for spelling it correctly.
    Well, the first time.

    Actually, the BRAND is "DUCK", so HAH!!!!!! I do so hate it when the grammar and spelling are really bad, then I started this thing lately where my fingers don't do as instructed and I have soooo many typos. LOL

    I know this is not the place you're supposed to share this. But wanted to share with my sp swap friends. A friend of mine closed her LQS last month. She decided when she opens her new shop that she is going to start all over, so she said come over and see what you want and I 'm going to have a yard sale. Well I get there and you won't believe this but she's selling it for $1 a yard, (still can't believe it) but you have to buy whats on the bolt she doesn't want to cut it. Moda, In the Beginning, Benartex, Newcastle, all really nice! It was almost overwelming, didn't know what to pick! Anyway I got over 300 yrs! Now to see where to store it, my sewing room is very small. But I'll find a place! LOL!

    Lovely packages, and it's so good to see people posting pics. I do so enjoy looking at others' goodies. And talk about goodies.... My package from NanaKathy55 arrived yesterday. She really outdid herself on crafting and picking out things just especially with my tastes in mind. She made a butterfly mug rug, lovely cards (on the right) and a 3-D wall quilt that I've already picked out the spot for. In addition she was very generous with fabric and patterns. I'm dancing the happy dance today!

    I finally got my two SP packages in the mail and when I returned home from the Post Office discovered the cards I had so carefully written out. Pits! I will keep checking and the when the packages are out for delivery will write a PM revealing myself. Can't believe I did that. One of my SPs has moved over to the bench, but she won't be there for long. The other doesn't post on this thread, but maybe she reads and will know her package is winging its way north.

    Such wonderful packages. I think I drooled on a few, but then fabric does that to me.
    Everything important in my life, like naps, I learned from my dog.

    I am off the bench. I have several pics of my pkg. I received a wonderful pkg from DeeDee. My granddog was helping to open everything when he found out something in there was for him. He had to take his pkg outside to show grampie what his sp sent.
