Thanks so much for posting a pic of what I sent you frosty772; I know I took pix but idk where they wandered off to.

I've started to leave feedback for round 107, but with several of our participants across the pond or down under, shipping takes a bit longer. Isn't it difficult to wait to see these crafted goodies??

Please let me know via pm if I have your claim marked wrong as far as if you've sent or received.

Tomorrow I will have in my hot little hands some new fabric for part of my claim so that I can get the rest of the goodies off to Estzer in Hungary.

I had a funny find today while thrift shopping... I came across this shirt and facebooked it to Estzer saying look what I found!

Wasn't expecting to see a shirt from where she lives in my area when I was out looking for (among other things) tshirts to send to her! We both had a good laugh over it (no I didn't buy it). Isn't it wonderful that I could snap a pic and share it with her on the otherside of the world almost in a few seconds?? (we are only 4,722 miles apart!)

i literally yelled "Ive hit the motherload!" when i came across 4 books about ___________'s and one about _____'s at the vinnies, which was the 4th thrift grandson and I hit today. Now I have some awesome things I can claim a few folks with after I rip em apart and do a round of modge podge Smiley

also nabbed a ton of tshirts with son's college on them, as well as packers, brewers, couple badgers and a few that folks ive claimed in the past are looking for, and a couple for Grab a Coffee towards her tshirt quilt.

Overall it was a great afternoon, boy fell asleep on the way home, but i got some shimmery thread to work on his spiderman/superheros quilt to the spider web part.

heres a pic of what i had done the other day.....

the light blue lines in the background are a big web behind spider man and im gonna use the opaque white shimmery coats metallic thread on those, might not do them all but it will be cool in the background. ive got lots more done than this the last couple of days. its fun. the back is the superhero pattern you can see just a wee bit at the bottom, and it will fold over to be the edging as well. cotton batting in the middle. the spiderman is a panel i got somewhere.

he has seen me with the thing folded up and asked "hey thats super heros!" and i just replied, "i dont think so." to kind of throw him off. he won't go snooping in my craft room, its too messy LOL

i had purchased a kenmore in 83 when we got married, it lasted till last year when it more or less froze up on me. i had already bought a brother with 100+ stitches and that sat in the box for 9 months cuz i was intimadated by it and when the kenmore finally died, i got the brother open and love love love it! I also got a vintage treadle machine from the late 1800s or very early 1900s at a rummage sale about 2 blocks down the street from me, paid $60 the original price it sold for when new. the gal said she has several others, this one runs, i have not tried it, but its cool.

here are a couple pix of the old girl.....

some day I'll have her up and running Smiley

Hope this is the right gallery. BrandyK sent me 3 super grocery sacks that I will put in my car and hopefully remember to use.

the blue one has the swirl on the bottom with black straps; the swirl at bottom has a blue bottom and blue straps; and the all swirl at upper right is all swirl, body, bottom and straps. They are made of a thicker fabric so should hold up great.

Thanks much Brandy! Love em!!

Here are some pix of the table cloth Jessica made for me out of red, white and blue bandanas. I laid it over the foot of our king size bed, it hung way way over so Im sure it will fit the huge dining room table just fine Smiley

Here is a bills/receipts folder; some green floss; a beaded wire bracelet in my favorite colors; two owl pendants,  the pink one looks as if he is napping Smiley and a coffee sleeve in all my favorite colors--love it!!

this is a bottle of citrus/lavender body wash, and a whole huge bunch of postcards with bible verses and phrases that I will use to send to people whose names we draw the beginning of each month at church to pray for each other.

Thanks so very much Christine!! Love all the goodies you have sent me. I am finishing up a couple of your items today Smiley
