Remember this post? I showed you the boxes I had received in the mail from my two bestest buddies Robin & Peggy. I finally got to open them Monday night! We were all trying to open them together...but Robin is in the middle of moving (yes, she's moving the week of Christmas, poor girl!) and Peggy was celebrating her birthday with her family. But we all finally gave the go ahead and said, "Open 'em up!!"
Here is Smokey, waiting to "help" me open the first box.....
Robin sent me a cute, cute blue scarf that she knitted and 'Peanut' the elephant. Look at those teeny tiny yo-yo's!! There was also thread, a cupcake pincushion, a Christmas notepad, candy and more!! Oh, there was also some fun "popper" things, but my son, Zach, and I popped them open already! There was fun little trinkets inside.
Here is what was in the box from Peggy...look at all those gifties! I think she bought out the stores!! :) She said she's been shopping since the summertime and bought little things while on vacation in North Carolina and Hershey, PA. She sent a cool polka dot ironing board cover, the "Jelly Roll Quilts" book (I've been wanting that one!), recipe cards, ornaments, candy...oh and she made me one of her fun little totes. It will be perfect for makeup and such while travelling.
Aren't they the best quilting buddies a girl could have? I love each and every item and feel so spoiled!! Thank you two!!!
I also wanted to send a cute picture of the kitties. These two aren't the best of friends....actually, I should say that Whiskers (the older black cat) isn't fond of Smokey (the younger grey cat), so they hardly ever get very close to each other. I caught them both looking out the back door. I realized they were watching birds. If you look closely, you'll see a small patch of grass showing through the snow. There were about 10 birds out there looking for something to eat in that little grass patch...poor birdies!
Hope you all are finding time to enjoy the holiday with your families!!
