    I got a wonderful bird pincusion from someone who said she had made it while visiting her parents in Japan. Unfortunatly it arrrived the day my very efficient cleaning lady was here and she whisked all the packaging out, before I could put it too safety. I would very much like to thank my bird maker because I dearly love it, but someone is going to have to confess. Please?

    My tree isnt up yet.
    I try to get my swap things done early so my partner isnt waiting forever for it.
    i hate when im sitting and waiting, so i assume others are too.
    i decided to add some glitz to my ornaments, so i will do that tonight.
    ill mail by the end of the week. I have about 10 items going out to other board members
    So ill mail everything at once.

    Sucia,

    It was me! I was actually visiting my folks in New York and made your "bird" while escorting my father to his dialysis sessions. I was in the waiting room for about 5 hours, three times per week, and working on my pin cushion kept me sane! I left it with my mother to mail when I went back to Japan. I am glad you like it. All the notions were brought from Japan, as was the fabric. I guess I was going for an oriental bird look!

    ok now I am hanging my jibb the post office lady said be patient it could have gotten on the wrong truck and might make it back to its owner.. the ownly thing else I can truly hope for is my partner received hers in Ohio and simply forgot to post. I have gone back three times looking to see if I missed it but if I did I am blinder than I thought which is really blind. Opting out of a Christmas swap this round as I need to do my three kidlet stocking packages to give them and that always takes some creative thought. Not alot of cash so its full of thought lol. placemats! great oh crud no dinner tables not a one of them.. hot pads again. hey it beats burnt fingers. And they will always be fashionable with the current old fabrics momma finds for them lol

    Lynnie I make Christmas Tea for them and put it in pretty jars ala the thrift store. My daughter finished hers the first week. It was like a month supply.. my sons both finished theirs pretty fast. They always get Moms jams a couple jars, spices as no one likes to spend money on that homemade taco seasoning stuff like that. I am on the end of what money?? so I try to pick at it a tiny bit at a time. i have kitchen towels for all of them and a small throw blanket for their couch that I made/making.. and some candy or ornaments too. My daughter wants a Tree skirt so she is getting that. I silly me gifted her for her birthday this year a holiday of the month item.. I make wall hangings or table toppers then add something like a candle, a bag of seasonal candy etc and whatever I find cute at the thrift store for under $3 (hey it adds up) and send it the first day of the month. I have to figure out her thing for Nov.. a turkey for sure but what turkey.. and I made cute cute snowmen little wallies.. like 12 inches of cuteness .. for her for Dec so she will be set. The boys .. a bit harder. oh and biscotti white chocolate apricot brandy biscotti with chopped dried cots and dipped in white chocolate.. those are monster hit. Love making those easy and well a ton in one batch lol what do you do?? I ask my kids for a card and only a card. They have partners or kids of their own and all are young and have no money. I want their company and they know I mean it. works for all of us.

    We have quite a few folks that either have sent late, or not at all; and there are
    those who are still waiting. Hopefully some of these will be resolved shortly.

    If you have not received a pin cushion, AND I am not aware of it, please send me a PM. We want everyone to fulfill their commitments.

    Mariposa should I PM my partner in Ohio and see if she got it yet? or is that something you do? I am worried it didnt get there but she also has not posted anything in a while so maybe its there and she forgot to post?

    I like the variety of creative idea.. one subject but so many wide and different ideas that come back..super fun. I think they are all my favorite so fork them over ladies.You have shelves of them you wouldnt want mine to be empty right? (running to ace to buy a shelf to put up so I can show you how empty it is.. ha ha ha running not catching my breath well.. this is work..)
