    Mine went out. today, and I think the lines are really really long because yesterday was a holiday! there was a guy in line ahead of me sending out about 40 presents for Christmas Already! Wow I still have halloween costumes to make befor I can even think about Christmas!

    OK clues to SP we have exchanged before, well one of us did! And me being the brain dead person that I am, never did get to tape the note to the back of your package! So I will be sending it out on Thursday. The PO said you should receive package by Monday the 15th. I have a tracking number but I have to find it first!

    We ran errands today, including a trip to the dump! Talk about long lines! The receipt from the PO is somewhere in the piles of stuff that was purchased, hopefully I don't put it away in the freezer again(I found a receipt from PO in freezer before)

    I have about 16 more things to get done and get in the mail before I leave on Friday at 4:30AM! My husband does not understand why I leave so early and get home so late, Airline tickets are a lot less if you go real early and get home real late! Plus more time with Granddaughter!
    Give a smile away today, someone you meet might need one!

    Well I found the confirmation number, and it was not in the Freezer! But yes I did look, just in case!

    It was in my husbands bag of things he bought at the 2nd hand store, I got some really cool quilting hardback books for a quarter! and some fabric for $2.00 that will back a lap quilt I am making for my great nephew.... I am not sure what he bought but he was very secretive about it!

    So the confirmation number is 03121430000100072637. it should arrive by Monday, it is going East To a Hot Place, well it is very hot in the summer and that is the only time I have visited that state. Been there 3 times and all 3 times I wished I was someplace cooler! But it is a very Beautiful place. I am not sure how close to your Town I actually was, after all it is a VERY Big State!

    Alrighty SP, I just finished two more handmade items for you. I still have at least two more to make. I was planning to make one of the items that you most wanted but not sure if I have the time with all that is going on. Hopefully I will be able to get to it. If not they're are plenty of other things in there that are a perfect match to your list.

    Okay time for another clue, SP your state is the home of one of the most well known battles.

    Received an absolutely beautiful package today!

    I just sent out my package this morning and this afternoon the mailman left one for me! It is from "jaba" who sent a very generous and thoughtful package. She included some beautiful fabrics, her own homemade raspberry jam!, crocheted hot pads, wash cloths and the cutest pin cushion, a pretty tissue holder, mug mats, a beaded stiletto, bobbin wraps, my favorite tea, snacks, note pad, book, even treats for my furbabies. Thank you, Jan.

    By the time I stopped by it was already bedtime, so read a few pages, but I'm only on 27 and the last one is 37, so I will have to finish another time. Hope everyone on the mend is doing well. More prayers coming.
    Sharon I love your hooded cowl, and if I'm your sp you can send it! and if I'm not but am another time you can make me one than with any yarn you want to use up. It isn't as cold here as Wy. MN. or ME but it gets cold enough to keep the head covered.
    My hair is natural and it is starting to grey- thanks Anastatia I like the phrase greyhighlights. I wear mine wash n go. Another nice thing about going natural is your hair doesn't get all dried out.

    hint for my sp hmm I'm getting things collected. Your west of me but not Very west, and more than a state away.

    G'night. I will try to catch up with you guys tomorrow.

    What lovely comments about the cowl. I even shared the pattern with a coworker. Little did I know my dabbling would be so warmly embraced. So the next clue is that someone who said nice things on here will be getting it. I am waiting to mail on Thursday for one more thing I want to buy. There's a Hancock's 1/2 mile from work, so will look there tomorrow (Wed is Senior Day and we get 15% discount - better than full price, right?).

    I was so nervous and excited to send in my mini-quilt photos tonight for the competition. It's my first time entering a contest for anything I have made. I hesitated and my finger hovered over the "Enter" key before emailing for about 15 seconds. Almost changed my mind, but then closed my eyes and hit it. All caution to the wind. lol.

    I wanted to comment on a few posts, but have forgotten what I wanted to say for the moment. It is nearly midnight and I have to get some rest for work tomorrow, so I'll try again - next time I'll write the thoughts down BEFORE I begin to type.

    Sweet dreams everyone.

    Sharon.. I have to admit I keep going back to look at that most beautiful cowl that you made and I'm in awe. I'm lucky to get a double stitch row to come up with the same number for more than 3 rows. Can I be like you when I grow up and learn tomake that? I think it would have a most loving home here in Mid-Michigan. Do you think about selling them. I think that even with my flat red-hair with the grey highlights that have started already (lol I'm only 40 for Heaven Sakes!) that soft & natural coloring is just delightful.

    Toodles,

    Working on my package. I promise to mail on time!! Worked on my DQ the last 2 nights, gonna go look for something she requested when I get out of here tonight!! Then I think I will make something, just for her. Now, what to make? She wasn't very specific on anything in her bio, so I guess I will have to use my imagination. Who could it be, who could it be? Zip equals 16 and S. is in her address. by the way. BOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

    SharonAnne~I'm sure that your mini quilt will be awesome in the contest...thought about entering myself because I had an adorable pattern for one but the measurements were too big and I don't want to reduce the pattern...can't wait to see all of the entries!

    Shortmom~very nice package of goodies!

    SP package sent out today. Meant to send yesterday, but spent the day sick in bed instead.

    Hint: My SP lives NW of me smack dab in the middle east of the US. Though her state is 3 states away from me, her state is still considered "southern." Sent priority so she should have it in 2-3 days!
