I stumped Julie and Rosa both on the same night. I was so excited!!! I stumped Rosa with stultifying (which didn't mean quite what I thought it meant), and then Julie with bolthole. I'm just so cool!!! I'm a sesquipadalianist. (It's a really big word for people who like big words. It's my fave word in the English Language.)
I got another card today. It's cute. Pics here:

Anyways, the inside says, "May all your birthday wishes come true." It's from Tama, which I really appreciate it Tama!! Thanks so much. Tama's blog is here, if you want to go see her. She also sent me a cute little kit. It's a beginner kit, so for a quick finish or to give to someone else. I'm thinking of giving it to my neighbor, who used to stitch but hasn't in years. Pic is below. I'm hoping to convince my neighbor to come and stitch with me sometimes. I'm hoping, anyways. And lastly, she included some treats for Yes Dear. She loves them, and I can see I'm gonna have to hide the bag if I don't want her to chew through the bag and eat them all. Great job Tama. I'm thrilled with everything. Thanks Tama!!!

I got one of Randi's packages today. I went through it and matched everything up with the invoice and everything was there, so it's all good. I'm still expecting a couple of packages. Bec's stuff from Joann's still hasn't shown up, which is not a problem, but it shouldn't take this long. Or, maybe I've been spoiled by ordering from 123stitch.com. They're super fast. Randi ordered her package the day after I ordered Bec's stuff, and her package is here already. Also, I've been gifted. A blogger friend of mine (Anne, of Doll's Musings) is giving me a piece of opalescent fabby. She said it's pretty small, so I may take a week off of my rotation this year at Christmastime and make a few ornies. After all, I just got the 2008 JCS ornie issue from the Traveling Stash Box. I'll have to see what I come up with.
I'm dog sitting this week, which is very bad timing. I just joined a new group, and they're VERY busy. Almost two thousand emails this month alone. But I know quite a few people in the group, and I like the premise. It's a Yahoo group called The Stitch Specialists. Basically, the owner, Abi G. is making patterns and trying to incorporate as many specialty stitches as she can. I love to learn new stitches, so I finally caved. I kept seeing the first pattern she had done (Tree of Stitches) and it's gorgeous!! So I finally broke down and joined. I may do it as a SAL with someone. I absolutely cannot (CANNOT) add another piece to my rotation. But if I SAL it, we'll choose a day of the week and it shouldn't take me too long. So we'll see. Still, I'll have twenty two projects on the go. Can you say serial starter, lol. Anyways, that's all for me tonight. I have emails awaiting my attention!!! Hope you're all having a good night!!
