One Bad Blogger :o(

Yes, that's me. Bad! Very, very, very bad :o( I've been very neglectful of my Blog and sharing with you some wonderful things that have landed in my mailbox as of late. I apologize profusely to those that deserve these HUGE thank yous and I will accept the thirty lashings of the wet noodle...

When the woman at the post office handed me over this huge envelope, I had no idea what it was. I saw Terri's name on the return address but it wasn't until I opened the package that I realized it was a RAK :o) Terri was SO generous! Look at all the goodies that she sent -

I was just thrilled! But then I opened up the tiny package that was included and just stared in awe -

Terri stitched this over one and it's beautiful! Right now I have him/her hanging on my Ott-Lite but come Christmas, he/she will go right onto my ornament tree :o) Thank you SO much Terri! I know I'm late with my thank you but I can tell you that you definitely put a smile on my face that day and each day that I look at my cute little bird.

Last week another package arrived and I was just as stumped. This time it was from Myra! When I opened the envelope, this is what I found -

Isn't that just the cutest little pouch? But wait...there was something inside -

What could it be?

Myra made me a magnetic needle minder with my initial and a pumpkin :o) How perfect a combination is that? Not to mention the fact that I'm always putting my needle in my mouth (I know, a HUGE no-no) or pinning it to some part of my clothing (equally as bad because I sometimes forget where I pinned it) so hopefully this will get me out of those bad habits. LOL! Thank you Myra. You make such lovely things and I'm honoured to have a few of them in my home :o)

Where does one find the "innards" for the needle minder? I am a "needle through thetop of my shirt" needler and this would solve a LOT of my "lost needle" problems.

Lucky lady! What fun mail! It's all so lovely.

I put needles in my mouth all the time. I even lost a few when I opened my mouth to talk and dropped them. Not my shining moment of brilliance lol!
