Good Golly!

Belated Christmas Joy

Belated-cat-humor-christmas-ecard-lg(With a tip of the hat in the direction of Kitten Academy) I managed a very late holiday gift excitement this week. In the Baltimore Modern guild, we had a holiday swap way back in December. My poor sender, Barbara Shelton, had to wait forever for me to open my bundle of joy. :) I have to tell you, I had mixed feelings when I did - I was totally bowled over by all the incredible goodies she sent me ... and ashamed (in retrospect) of how little (in comparison) I did for the person to whom I sent (Judy Dunlap - I owe you for sure J.D.!).

Knowing that my favorite color combo currently is hot pink and orange, Barbara sent me this bunch of great swag. I think I will put it all together and make the ultimate travel sewing kit. :)
