    Thanks to Marytoddliz for a super package. Lots of pretty fabric, including some shamrocks. Workbasket patterns, how many years ago did i subscribe to "Workbasket"? A little utility box, pad, magazines, and, for my monthly quilt group meeting, a denim tote bag and place mat. Yes, we do lunch. My DH was fascinated with all the inside pockets on the tote. As I was packing for a trip, I grabbed the chocolate for my purse. Thank you soooo much!
    My sp should have received hers Monday am, but I haven't heatrd from her yet. Hello!!!!!!

    Hey, anyone ever given fresh homemade bread in their package? I think I've seen people send banana bread, but what about just plain fresh bread...? ok so it's not exactly FRESH when they get it 2-3 days later.. But it's still homemade... I ask cause I'm back into baking mode and I have a loaf of bread going right now, probably make another one tomorrow.. I always have the stuff for bread of some type or another. Since I don't can....and I don't have a garden.. or lobsters.. or things like that... well I could send parts of that ginormous chocolate cake in my freezer if there's still some next month.. which I'm sure there will be. I love to bake stuff... I just don't want to be the one to EAT it all...Ya'll getting some baked goods next month.. in probably various states of squished by the time they arrive.. but that's what you're getting.

    Anastasia -
    I would love to be your SP next month and get some home made bread. I can already smell it baking and see the butter melting....must stop.

    A note to my second SP - your package went out yesterday and I got you the one thing you didn't want....but I think you really did want it. Here are a couple of hints - it is going to a New state and Park is included somewhere in the address. You should have it on Monday....can't wait to see if you like it!

    My other SPs package was going over the water....I hope it makes to her in one piece. Sent it on the 10th. Keeping my fingers crossed.

    Krystyna - I will take some pics tomorrow.

    Have a great weekend everyone!

    Ana, I will be "firing" up the kitchen aid mixer when it cools
    down again enough to turn the oven on and making Parker
    House dinner rolls again, french bread mini rolls, soft pretzels
    and other baked goods (at least I WANT to make them this year).

    I'm glad you like what I sent to you.

    Well I DIDN'T know that QW was your favorite magazine
    I just know that it is mine and I get BOTH print and digital
    versions of the magazine. Since I have EVERY digital copy
    going back to Feb 2006 I figured it wouldn't hurt for me to
    start sharing the print issues in my SP boxes.

    Just hope you didn't get an overload of "green".

    LOL

    Enjoy the goodies.

    Went to JoAnn's today to buy materials for a Craftsy online class I signed up for with Lola Jenkins. I like small art type quilts. I figure long about April 2013 or 2014, I'll be ready to do the class. lol. I just had to use my 20% off of everything (incl sale items) coupon that was expiring today, so I'm all set, no matter when I begin the class. I needed Fabric Medium to set the colors from the colored pencils and several other items I had never used before. What fun. Then on the way home, I braked for a yard sale because I saw an antique sewing machine. It was a bit weathered, but was in a cabinet and the decals were fully intact. It was $50. No, I did not buy it - no place to keep it and no time to clean it up and sell it, but I sure wanted to!!! Today was shopping, tomorrow is hiking at Pebble Beach and Carmel. Weekends go fast!!!!! And tonight I MUST get crocheting on my baby afghan order before the baby arrives. Let's hope she does not deliver early.. Hope everyone here is having a great weekend, too.

    Krystyna - Would you please post another photo of the fabric you are looking for? I cannot find your original post or your website address. I found some very pretty bridal veil fabric from Bridal Impressions called Ivory Heather and also White Heather, but I don't think that is what you wanted. It was $24.00 per yard, on special for $10.99 per yard and I had a 20% off coupon. Wish I had been able to contact you while I was at the store. And dumb dumb me forgot to take my camera, so I can't even show you what it looked like.

    I'm beginning to feel like the red-headed step child. No packages today. Nada, nothing, tears beginning to well up. Now it's another wait until Monday.....

    So many yummy packages. I can't wait until I get mine! I have been cleaning my sewing room and now I have a backache. That is what I get for having old heavy machines. I'll bet that Morse 3400 weighs 35-40 pounds. Oh the other hand......maybe I'm just getting old. At least in a few more days, I will have my sewing/painting/guest room organized. I'd hate to have someone down for a visit and lose them in that mess. I couldn't hold off cleaning one more day. Just found the original post when I first got that Morse and it weighs 44 pounds! No wonder I love my featherweight!

    I have sent my package out. It is traveling a L-O-N-G way. Everyone is getting such awesome packages. We sure are a generous and talented bunch! Lol. I have been busy sewing baby things, clothes for my 21 and 25 year old daughters and mug rugs. I hope to work on a quilt tomorrow. I'm thankful that the weather is cooling down. Autumn is my favorite time of year. I love the bite in the air, all the colors and the amazing smells.
