I am a very, very bad MORTAL!!! I recieved these lovely gifts a week ago and never posted them on my blog. My angel was a very sweet lady from Norway named Marit.

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you Marit!! I loved all my gifts and even though I did not want to share I broke the chocolate into pieces and shared with my husband and grandchildren. They said that that was the best chocolate ever.

This swap has really been alot of fun and I hope that you and I can keep in touch. I will have a special friend now in Belgium, Australia, and the United Kingdom .

Savannah in her Scarlett O'Hara costume

I can't resist a good garage sale and 2 fridays ago I came across a wonderful big sale and acquired several goodies including a Gone with the Wind type of costume for a little girl. It was only $3 and I couldn't believe what a find it was. I was sure that my granddaughter Savannah would want to wear it for Halloween. Unfortunately the lure of that little "Twit" Hannah Montanna is to strong. The only good thing about her choice is she wants to go as a DEAD Hannah Montanna. I at least got her to try the dress on and do a little modeling for me. I think she is sooooooooo pretty in it.

I have been busy trying to organize my material into bins where I can see everything that I have. I have 8 of the large plastic tubs full plus at least 5 cardboard boxes. I am trying to find a carpenter who can build me some open ended boxes to stack on top of each other on one wall. Man, I have so much material I could open a fabric store.

I also finished a baby quilt with some jelly roll strips I bought for half price at the quilt shop. It wasn't a full set but it came out pretty good I think.I plan to do a small inner border with the lime green and than do a white border and put some embroidered flowers on it. If any one has any other ideas please let me know.

Have a great week to all of you.
