Saved..... Just heard from your SSBG - she's been sleeping all this time and apologizes - now that she is awake your package is on the way so be looking out for it! Hey, when it gets cold like it's been up this way I love to crawl under my blankie and not come out! LOL!

Hi Ju LU! Got to a computer this evening - hope you had a nice B'Day. Your SSBG said to tell you your package is on the way.

Loving CA and having a great time with the grand babes... and had a very nice lunch with Fluer55 and City Sandie - Date night tomorrow night with my son - can't wait!

That so nice Nickilee, I know it just makes you happy to see their faces. Have a great visit. My Birthday was nice my youngest son and his family came up to spend the day and watch the game. My 3 year old grandson had me playing cars for 5 hours outside. I felt like he needed to see me it's been awhile. It's always a great day when I have my kids. Leaving tomorrow for my guilds retreat. Husband gave me lots of monies to spend.

Fluer and JLu - nice gifts!!!

I just got home from California late last night and wanted to come on and thank Fluer55 & City Sandie for driving out to visit me - we had a nice lunch and lucky me - I got to see Fluer's beautiful gifts from Ely in person. Ely you did a fabulous job putting them all together.

Another wonderful day was spent with DecPainter. She came out and spent the night with me at the hotel - had a nice lunch and a lot of laughs.

My visit with my grand babies was the best ever - they are getting so big and had me laughing every minute - what a joy to be able to spend so much time with them.

Ladies, I'm not sure if you all saw my post a few weeks ago (separate one) but a reminder.... After 4 years of hosting the SSBG, I am stepping aside. Due to a lot of personal projects and things going in my life. I do not have the time to properly devote to this swap. If anyone would like to take over please feel free.

Hi Ladies,

Happy Birthday to my fellow Novemberites.

I have not been on this website much at all this year. I apologize for not participating. This is why I didn't sign up for next year. My health has been up and down. Over the summer just as I thought I was improving I went really downhill. I have been far worse than I have been in years. I am slowly improving. Doing little bits of handwork and sewing as I am able.

Karen

Happy birthday fellow November birthday girls! Smile

The mailman just delivered a box that says 'do not open until your birthday on it'~ that is torture!! Eek One of the edges is completely split open, so I hope it didn't have anything small in it. I tried to peek in, but DH was too fast and took it away. Big Grin LOL

My Secret Sister is Nicki
Nicki is one of the people I usually hope will be my swapper, SS or ...
My present arrived on Friday. The pictures got uploaded Saturday and then I was exhausted and didn't post. It is still Sunday evening for me on the West Coast.

I will start with the absolutely gorgeous dyed laces that are part of my gift.

Next is the pieced crazy quilt block she made for me. There is also a lace butterfly that didn't make it in the lace picture. I laid it on the block. This will be fun to embellish. When done it will hang in my sewing studio.

Last but certainly not least is an assortment of items.
1. There is a CQ circle that is all embellished. I am not sure yet how I will use it but it will be used.
2. A package of rice pearl beads. I am not sure that is the right name.
3.A Dress form decorated with music paper. A ribbon is wrapped around the waist.
4.A package with rose beads, trim and things.
5. A package of Krenik silk mori floss. I haven't used this brand before, I look forward to using it.
6. center bottom with the woman on it. Is my "birthday card". It is like an artist's business card but a little bigger.
7.A pretty note pad. The cover is a peacock. I have looked at these at my local fabric shop but would never buy one for myself.

Nicki thank you ever so much for my wonderful gift. I will enjoy using all of it.

Karen

Sweet Karen, I'm so happy you like your gifts. I was thinking of the 2 of us and our love for CQ and stitching when I put the "friendship" package together - your favorite color Purple and mine -Aqua blue. I hope your prezzies helped make you feel better and that your will enjoy creating another one of your beauties. BTW - the beads are called "rice beads" and lend to making some pretty designs when used. Big big hugs my friend.
