I'm sorry that I haven't been too regular about posting lately - it's just that time of year! We have several birthdays in our family at this time of year; there are the holidays - Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's; the kids are full swing into their sports now (hockey and basketball); and so there just aren't enough hours in the day with everything that is going on!
Thank you to those that signed up for my Pay It Forward challenge - I believe I have five now - Heather, Katrina, Mary Kathryn, Laurie, and Angela. Angela - please email me (tadten at msn dot com) your snail mail address! I'm anxious to get started on these after the holidays!
Yesterday, I received a lovely pinkeep in the mail from Marie as part of the USEBB Specific Finish exchange. We decided to do pinkeeps this time. Along with the pinkeep Marie sent some recipe cards, some floss bobbins and numbers, and a wonderfully scented candle. Thanks Marie!
When I arrived home last Wednesday, there was a package from Becky in with the mail - of course I immediately thought that Becky must have had my name for the pinkeep exchange. To my surprise, it wasn't an exchange at all, but rather a birthday gift from dear Becky! (Officially, my mid-life crisis starts next Thursday, Nov 30 when I turn 45!) Becky sent a beautiful needlecase and a Quaker sewing case. They are both stitched with the same autumn colors and are truly works of art. Thank you Becky!
I am blessed to have connected with Becky about a year ago - and I am also blessed to have so many other new friends as a result of blogging and the exchange boards. Thank you for being one of them. Have a great weekend!
