since I had not had a very great day at work, there was a bad snow storm so they closed schools and we all rushed around trying to get out of work early and off the roads before dark, and I got stuck in a snow drift a mile from home. it was really nice to find good things waiting for me. I had to call "FarmGuy" to come get me unstuck from the snow drift partly because I hadn't put a good shovel in the car and partly because I was stuck enough to need help. He got stuck again after getting the car out of the drift, so I didn't feel quite so bad, but I was cold and my jeans were frozen from the snow.
and here is what I found in the mail
From Lynn Demsky in Michigan, I received a very nice Tatting Christmas card with very pretty pastel variegated thread labeled Rubi Brilhante Cores Firmes 20. ( I did receive Lynn's thead about a week ago, but wanted to wait to post until all the threads came.)
From Roberta Lawson in Australia, I received 2 new threads I had never heard of Cap putri Duying in Royale Purple and Cap Putri Duying Benang Sulam istmelia in Teal. She also sent a CD of Australia, I have not yet had a chance to play it, so am looking forward to a few minutes of quiet time.
Patsy Goodman in southern California, sent 2 threads as well, Beyaz 1 Altin Basak size 50 in white/silver and Omega size 50 in Green that she bought in Mexico. She also included a very nice
letter and Linda Davies Christmas Tree earring pattern.
Sue Anna Scribner from Illinois surprised me with 2 of Marilee Rocklee's HDT Parchment Size 20 and Snowflake size 30 and both were wound on what I think are called EZ bobs. I think I am going to have to take another look at these thread holders. they look very handy. She also sent a nice card with pictures of her tatted motifs and 2 snowflake patterns, Jon Yosoff's Double -Decker star and Flurry Snowflake by Jane Eborall
Jane Armstrong from North Carolina, sent a pretty variegated thread in pinks and blues and she included some beads that look just right with the thread. she also sent a very pretty hand towel with a snowman on it holding a sign stating "Let it Snow", can I blame her for the snow storm today? Tee Hee, Jane wrote a note on the outside of the package stating that she had forgotten to include the card, so I don't know what type of thread she sent, so will have to wait to find out.
and last, but most definitely not least, from Lily Morales also out in California, i received a big bunch of fun. 3 of the EZ Bobs, and they contained the following threads, a Christmas colors variegated Flora in size 50, and red and green Cebelia in size 10. Along with these threads she sent a pretty Gold Christmas ornament, of the kind you can attach tatting on and a folding scissors with a very nice knotted fob that I am sure she made, as I have checked out her blog where she shows and talks about knots.
I have been doing some tatting, but haven't posted any, so will have to get at that sooner or later.
