Happy New Year


I hope this finds everyone starting off with a great new year;} I need to post my goodies from my SSCS. I did send her a note telling her how much I loved them but couldn't post a pic of them cause my camera wasn't working but guess what. I took a break from work today to do a little catching up on blogs. Over on chookyblue there were my goodies that I received from Yvonne. Thank you so much. She had been following my blog and saw how much I had liked my goodies from my polka dot and rick rack swap that she actually sent me the book that had some of the patterns in it:) how awesome is that. She sent me some great chocolate and a great table runner. I have that at my desk at work. This is were I spend at least 10 hours a day at so I get to admire it the most:) It was great having a gift to open on Christmas. I wish I could have shown you how beautiful she had it wrapped. Thank you so much Yvonne and to elf Donna:) It made my Christmas that much more special to have friends that would take so much time and consideration into my christmas present.

The bad news is that my doll swap partner did not received here little quilt so I am making another one. The good side is that since I made it once the second time it is going a little quicker. I learned a valuable lesson on this. NEVER send out a swap gift with out a tracking number. Pay the extra to have someone sign for it. Anyway I feel so bad for my partner and am working like a mad person to get another quilt done for her in the meantime she is watching for the first one. It doesn't help that I am working 12 hours a day 7 days a week right now and starting school on the 12th of January so I won't be signing up for any swaps for a couple of months probably won't have time to do a lot of posting but will be thinking of you all everyday and saying a pray that you are safe and sound.
