OH well--Holidays are fun--but now we have to get back to doing what ever it is we are suppose to be doing!!!!(that was a "mouth-full" of words!!!!)
so as we usually do--lil sister and I took the bus to wally world--
she needed kitty litter for Morris==I needed kitty food for miss gracie!!
lil sister does not use my brand of kitty litter--
and miss gracie does not eat Morris's kind of food---
we were surprised to still see so much Christmas stuff on the isles--
Usually by the second day after Christmas it is pretty much all gone--
but our Walmart is still full!!!!
OK--Now for my gifts for Christmas--
First we have--
these three items from lil sister--
the set of blue bowls is a set of three and will be perfect for my decorating with my snowmen later this week !!!
this adorable Boyds Bear--
that came with a really cute tag--
and was a gift from Sunny @sunny-quiltingdreams.blogspot.com
Remember the tiny package that was under the tree--
it was a pair of real pretty earrings--
unfortunately I can no longer wear earrings--
but my new "Sunny" bear can--
and they are the perfect color to go with "Sunny's" quilt!!!
Thank you soooo very much Sunny!
came from Kady--with the gifts for miss gracie--
I did show you the kitten ornaments--those will be out all year!!
and the two story books were delightful to read--
what neat gifts--thank you soooo much Kady!!
this stash of goodies came from Alice @aliceinquilterland.blogspot.com
(Whom we need to get after so she works on her blog site more!!!!)
See the fabric that all the gifts are displayed on---that came also and is what Alice used to wrap the little wooden bird house in!!! And yes there is a box of Chocolate there--she knows how to stay on the "sweet" side of me!!!--be sure to take a look at that 3-d Card--how cute is that--and look even a "cat" ornament!!!
and then there is that "FABRIC"--oh my how sweet--
Here is a look at the three white and black designed ones--
do think I have a design rattling around in my head for these!!!!
SO--Alice thank you sooo verry much!!
this cute package came all the way from AU and is from Joy @joysquilts.blogspot.com
she is getting ready to move in a couple weeks back to Saudi Arabia--
yet she took time to send me a package--
the scarf she crocheted--it is soo cute and it is in my favorite color!!!!!
But look at that cute tote--
the scarf is coming out of a little pocket that is on one side--
I just love this--and that card is sooo cute too--
What can I say--
Thank you soooo much Joy!
and this pile of goodies came from Lola @ansewon.blogspot.com
Lola and I were in an exchange group last year--and I had her name--
we have kept in touch since--and now her and Alice are good friends as they both go to the same quilt shop in VA and they often get together and stitch together--
so maybe I need to move to VA???
Any ways--look at those prim kittens--this is a panel that has several different things to make with the kittens and these kittens will go great with the ones Kady sent me--how cool is that??? Then look at that pretty pink and green and tan fabrics--I mean--how could you not love them--(have to keep these out of lil sister's site--she's awant'a them!!)
Thank you sooo much Lola!!
I got these gifts from an old pen pal---we have been writing back and forth for over 10 years now--Cindy lives in PA and she does not have a blog--she is still a letter writer--
so once in a while I have to get out my pen's and sharpen them up and write her a letter!!! I really needed the little calendar--it will go over my computer desk here where I type--can always use note pads and that towel is just perfect for me--all the right colors--chmas green , chmas red, and white--
Thanks soo much Cindy!
well--that is about it--
this has been my "bestest" Christmas in a very long time--
so how do I really say "Thank You" to each and everyone of you???
and then there has been all of you blog friends who have sent me "wishes" by way of the Internet---they are sooo meaningful also--thank you!!!!
Now it really is time to go back to work--
well--maybe just "think" about it--
we could wait until after the New Year to really get going again!!!!
and kitty "purrs" from miss gracie!!!
