Finally back to posting~~~

I feel as though it has been forever since my last post!...Lots to post so I best get started.
First...Patty C  and I did a private exchange...look what arrived for me...

But look inside these cute packages...

A pretty selection of threads on a stand...a needle holder, a pin keep and pincushion...and in my favorite colors too!
such detail!

exquisite work...
Next I received a PIF from Elisa


Isn't this pretty...and the card was "tasty"!Just wanted those donuts!
I guess you can say I did okay with gifts...it helped since the computer was on the blink...about that...I had it cleaned out and checked by the Geek Squad and I am back up and running. Next step will be to replace it as it is a bit old. I just mailed out my Spring Exchange gift but you will have to wait to see that...it has some distance to travel.
The temps here in Arizona have been warm...93 yesterday.Next week at this time my brother arrives for a 4 day visit.
I did lots of stitching on my day 9 piece....want to see...meet me over at my other place....I have missed all of your blogs and will try to catch up...thank you for sharing some time with me. Have a great day.
