    This is my wonderful package from Belfrybat. It arrived last week, but this month has been eventful, to say the least!

    In this picture you can see the beautiful floral bag she made me, leaflets about the wild flowers of Texas and a fabulous stiletto - so pretty.

    In this one is the rest of my amazing haul - Kaufman Hanky Panky fabric I asked for (with the fabric I got sent from Gaijin I think I now have enough to make the quilt - yay!). I also got two other pretty fabrics and some cream I wanted. On top of that, a McKenna Ryan pattern I asked for - very difficult, if not impossible to find here . There's a wonderful appliqué pattern book, Sewline pen set, notelets and something which really tickled me.............. Texan Santa fabric! I laughed when I saw the armadillo . The last time i was in Houston I brought back an armadillo in a cowboy boot (ornament), lol.

    I forgot to photograph the purple 'Cutter Cubby' for holding your cutter and/or pencils. It was a marvellous and generous parcel Belfrybat. Thank you so much.
    Lang may yer lum reek. (I'm a knitter - hence - 'Knit-ette'. Confuses a lot of people!)

    Glue stick, bobbins, binder clips, shout pad and the cutest little wooden clothes pin. I don't know if you can see it in the picture, but Wanda tied a bow on the black basket. It has given me ideas to decorate those baskets ( I have a ton of them) so you can look for some in future packages!!!

    Wanda thank you so much. I loved everything!

    Knitette -- glad you liked your goodies. It was a pleasure hunting them down for you.
    Err - just one question, was there only one Texas Santa strip or three? If only one, I'll hunt for the others and send them as I had planned on sending three in case you wanted them for borders or binding.

    I use paint to resize down to 25% and it has always worked before. I still get the tree icon, I have option to browse computer or URL.

    October signup is now up. Have 2 Dr. appts. today so fit it in early. I had to drop 979 keystrokes to make it fit ( another Quilting Board change.) In all the time I have posted the swap have never had to change it, other than the dates and then sometimes I didn't change all of them lol.

    I came home yesterday to find a fantastic package waiting for me to open from Knitette. I was so excited to see all the goodies. Best of all was her letter describing Aberdeen and all the interesting facts. She included two half-yard cuts of beautiful floral fabric (I know how precious that was to her) and a wonderful piece of cloth with Scottish themes. I have a friend from Scotland and will be making potholders for her and me with that piece -- too special to cut up and want to highlite each and every picture! She sent some shortbread cookies and a special "biscuit", all of which arrived in one piece. My husband, who has Scot lineage a couple generations back and has learning to play the bagpipes on his "bucket list", just loved the letter and the travel brochures. The thread and tweezers found an immediate home in my sewing basket. She also made a really cute owl hotpad, which I really love; and she included the pattern!!! Also note the little bag of safety pin markers. You have no idea how much I needed them. Paper stickers just don't stick. Great idea. Thank you again for a very special treat.
