Exchanges received and gifties

I had a chuckle when I opened the Lizzie Kate Exchange package from Eileen. Earlier in the week my cat Tobie, made it into the house with a bird in his mouth. I always check, because he loves to bring me live critters. Somehow I missed this one. Guess it was because it was dark and I didn't check! Eileen wrote that she saw where I liked purple, hence the purple feathers! Thank you so much, I love it and have it displayed where I can see it from the computer.

My friend Lynn, OK Stitching News that Counts, brought this beautifully stitched accessory bag from her last trip to Wisconsin. Do you think she knows what my favorite color is? She said it is made from recycled saris. The photo does not do it justice. Her husband woodturned several stitching aids for me, so I bet they go in this bag. Thank you Lynn. I love it.

I have no idea what I did to deserve this beautiful afghan, but I'm keeping it anyway! My friend Karen, no blog, crocheted this beauty. I'm so ready for cold weather so I can snuggle up in it and stitch away. Thank you Karen, I love it!

This is my first day back on the internet since Tuesday (from my home). Seems the fellow who does my yard weedeated (?) my telephone/dsl cable. I certainly do use my service alot and missed it terribly. It's how I read the papers, blogs, etc. I'm behind on my Drudge Report! Hehe.

One last note, when the AT&T serviceman came to the door this morn, I got my feet tangled trying to get up out of my chair. Took a tumble on the floor. Not a pretty sight to greet him with! He asked if he should call 911. I told him no, it would just take me a minute to get up. I'm sore now and my knees are really tender as they took the brunt of my weight! Good thing I had straightened up around the "nest." No telling what kind of damage I would have done to myself!
