2013 ESSENTIAL TOPS SEW-A-LONG FINISHED PROJECTS

November 4, 2009

DOESN'T EVERYONE LOVE RECEIVING PACKAGES...& MONTH OF TOPS UPDATE...



Dang it, my picture showed up sideways! And of course I don't know how to fix it. I need a Blogger class! Doesn't EVERYONE just love receiving packages (unexpected of otherwise). Well, this one was expected and even though he doesn't know it, I was sweating the mailman about it. I've had the same mailman for the last 20 years, and although he is cute, he is not the most sociable person. He does however, wear short that are toooo short in the summer (at which I laugh at).
Anyways, James finally delivered my package from Smoking Needles' give a way - I won SECOND PLACE - hurray for me, and many thanks to Rachelle. I received a stuff bucket that I'll use to carry my stuff when I go away for sew-a-longs, 4 patterns and a toiletry travel kit. I just found out that I'll be going to a 2 day conference next week so I need that toiletry kit.

  1. Hooray!

    And here's my photo hint... I put all my photos on flickr. Once you upload a picture there, a small button appears above it that says "rotate" and you click which way & it flips it.

    To blog a flickr photo, you just click "all sizes" and then choose large/medium/small/thumbnail/square... and it gives you the HTML, easy peasy. :) Flickr is the greatest blogging photo site.. NAYY, i just love the site.
    Whoa, that was long, but maybe it will help!
