Hope so. Just delete me if I can't.............(oops, negative thought not allowed! LOL)
I am so excited about the Scrap Swap. I was really hating my scrap bag. Same ole, same ole. Nothing exciting. Just how do you expect me to live the rest of my life with THESE boring scraps? Augh!
Then the Scrap Swap grew out of V's head. And there was hope for my sad pile of scraps that I had shunned and pushed into the corner of the sewing room.
Wow! It is amazing how much you can get into a bag if you squish it! I am still stuffing. But there is a startling development. All of a sudden I am liking my scrap pile. I am looking at them from different eyes, those of my scrap partner. She is all the way over the ocean. And my stuffed bag of scraplets have to represent me! Augh!
I talk to the prospective puppy adopters at the shelter I volunteer for. You have to make sure they have the right home for your precious pups. And deep in my heart I know my Across The Pond Swap Partner is going to be good to my precious scrappies. She will treat them well, feed them often but not too much. Exercise them daily, and give them plenty of sunshine. I know this, but it is still hard to part with my lovelies.
Trudi, darling, you have been approved for ownership. You are a wonderful home, I know. But it still hard to look at the box, knowing I must let go, and imagine it as it crosses the ocean.
I hope Raggedy Ann doesn't get seasick. I am sure the Watermelons will help her though the journey. She will have the Flags to take courage from in her new home in the faraway land.
Bye, my favorite fabrics, good-bye. Be on your best behavior when you get there, Trudi doesn't need trouble from you. Line up in seams and lay flat when ironed.
