    Krystyna, if you have me then pack it all. I could use all that you listed even the cat. Of course, the precious little thing would probably not be very happy once it got here seeing as how it would have been cramme in a box for three or four days.LOL
    Anyway, I love bobins, can never have to many, love yarn, starting to learn to crochet, and love anything else so just pack up everything and mail it here. Ill love it all.

    Sharon - don't forget to vote on the mini quilts, but vote for mine! I entered - here's a hint about it - it's a small thing and kinda cute. Shouldn't be hard to spot.

    Wow, I am one lucky girl. I have a broken arm/shoulder, a husband who has been waiting on me hand and foot (washing ny hair, helping me dress, etc) and today I get the neatest box from one of my Secret Pals. Thanks to CraftyGrannie for all the goodies. Let's see - a Patricia Cornwell book (I hadn't read this one); candy (two kinds - chocolate and hard), Paper & pen, a halloween potholder and a halloween panel; an embroidery pattern magazine with some flosses; some Asian fabrics (with all the Asian fabrics I have, don't have these) and a piece of red Christmas fabric with gold squigglies (off my 'what special item I'm looking for" list) and a very pretty hand made necklace as well as a handmade card!!! Here are my pics --

    Well, the USPS tracking info hasn't been updated and still shows it is here in Great Falls (!?!?!?) with an expected delivery of... today. So I don't know what's up with that. I guess my partner gets no mail today.

    Mailing my 2 SP packages out tomorrow.

    First Sp's hints - At one time this town had the largest swimming pool in the US east of the Mississippi, there were 2 Major League Baseball Players from this town and 1 Musician/Actor.

    This one was a bit more tricky to come up with something.
    Second Sp's hint - Elevation 976 Feet, in 2000 census population was 381, every year this is a flower festival, not going to say what kind of flower though.

    tracking says delivery was yesterday and my SP can't post pictures so I'll put one on for her. Really enjoyed making her bag for her...the name her GK's call her and she wanted something with that name on it. Hope she liked everything.

    SP package mailing at lunchtime or after work today. One of her names starts with the 13th letter of the alphabet (if I counted on my fingers correctly). Have a good day, all.

    OOOOHHHHHHH!!!! Lovely, fun, GREAT packages being received. I am going to try to get mine out today, but if I cannot do that it will definately go out tomorrow. Just need one more thing for it! Thats the problem. Might not be able to get out to do the purchasing. HINT!! There are 15 letters in her name. Not counting the space between! And....you can eat her street.
    I noticed you missed the elephant. Glad I waited to finish reading the thread before I posted, "Is that an "efalant" standing in the back? LOL

    Good morning ladies. I just heard from Brenda with some sad news. Her father is about to pass on and she is on her way out of town to see him for the last time. Please keep her covered with prayer for a safe trip with a heavy heart. She will be back in touch when she returns as she will not have internet access.

    Today was one of those days when one thing after another kept piling up into a big stinking heap of troubles and I was on the verge of letting my worries take me with them down into a big black hole.

    And the the door bell rang! Lucky me!!! Our darling injured wing Vanogay had me this month! Kathleen put together the most thoughtful package and I cannot begin to tell you how moved I was on opening it and reading her notes. She sent me a box of white tea -- which I am trying very hard to use as a replacement for sugary beverages -- a book called The Christmas Quilt which looks wonderful -- along with a FSL lace bookmark (I make so many of these to give away but never had one for myself!) -- an adorable assortment of Christmas fabrics that are going to be used in a jiffy, a lucky FSL shamrock pin that I hope will bring me some luck, and the most wonderful, fabulous, fantastic embroidery program by a designer I always loved but was too much of a luxury to indulge myself with -- and I think that I will use it on one of my son's wedding quilts -- the other one will have ... you guess it ... monkeys!

    Anyway, thank you so very much, Kathleen, for a very sweet and so thoughtful package.
