OK, I have spent the better part of an hour trying to get a photo of my swap package uploaded. The problem is that the file is too big - it's over 1.91 MB and I don't know how to get the resolution down - the smallest file I have been able to obtain is 2.04 MB and the board keeps rejecting it. But it is getting late, and I still have to do my ablutions so I can go to work tomorrow, so I'll have to resume this exercise again tomorrow. Sorry. Funny that the Christmas tree was less - perhaps it is less busy than my photo of all the goodies. I don't guess there used to be a limit because I never had this problem with the old board.

Oh, God Bless You!! You have saved me so much time and frustration!!!!

Sharon love your Christmas Tree! Really cute. Can't wait to see what you put on the top. I might have to borrow your idea, my Mom and Aunt would absolutely love those.

I really wish there was some way we could mark the post that we have already read.

oh I had never thought of sending shirts from a thrift store!! that is neat

I should preface this by saying that we have known each other for over 30 years. Anyhow, Sheila had Diana's (walk-n-roll) name for the ornament swap. We did well, and kept it a secret.
Well, today I received my sp package, and (drum roll), it was from Diana! How she kept that a secret (considering we have seen/text/talked to a million times since the names came out, I will never know. She said something about always getting someone from Texas, etc., etc. So, even though I thought about her "fall colors" hint, I figured it wasn't me.
Wrong! I got some really cool things, including a little tea kettle timer, a Cadbury Flake bar (!!!!!!!!), a candy bar from IKEA (one of my very favorite places), 2 men's cotton shirts from the thrift store, and also 2 pieces of wool from the thrift store (shirts to cut up for a quilt I want to do, wool because I want to do some penny rug type things), a pattern booklet, a snowman pattern, scrap fabrics, tiny scissors, reindeer bath sponge, Thanksgiving ornament, an ice cream sundae pin cushion (too cute), Halloween fabric, the Jane Stickle panel (maybe the closest I'll get to a Dear Jane quilt), and a soup rug. The soup rug is bigger than a mug rug, and has novelty soup fabric, with a cup appliqued on it with the word s-o-u-p embroidered on it (probably because we have been eatng a lot of soup lately).
I will post a picture later tonight or tomorrow. Thank you so much! And congratulations on keeping this hush-hush. Although, Diana did text me after I got this and said she was hoping that I would have it before we spend another day together (that's tomorrow!). Love those thrift store bargains!
