Headed out to post office first thing in morning.  Really didn’t wrap anything, but my box is so full.  Hope my SS likes searching through the box.  Didn’t have a chance to take pics of additional items, but am sure she will post when it is received.  Not sure I will be able to wait to open package once it gets here...LOL

I had to wait for one more thing to arrive today, so guess what?? I got it all done !! My SSS will be getting two boxes... Bulk, is the reason. 

Riana, I like the idea of signing for them. I think I will do that too.

It feels so good to be done.

I decided to write a long letter to my SSS, just thought it would be nice to tell them who I am.

Like Colleen, I took pics of some of the things I made but didn't get picks of the whole package of things that I packed. I hope my recipient will post pics of the contents, Please and thank you.

Colleen, the photo( s) you were supposed to take were in case the parcel goes into the twilight proof of content. I'm sure your SS will post photos of her gifts at the appropriate time. Are you making progress in your recovery?? Sending healing vibes your way.

Guess what? After packaging like sized items together and wrapping them, and rolling my large squishies into a cylinder ( like spa towels), then encasing all in a protective clear bag, everything just fit! A bit snug, but nothing's breakable anyway. I discovered l left the golf tee bobbin buddies at home, though , sigh.l taped the ends, and added SS's mailing address inside the clear bag...just in case.l hope it's not too inconvenient for my SSS that l asked them to get a signature...but l've heard scare stories of porch pirates! So l hope she's home when it comes!

I have a really full day of appointments tomorrow so I mailed my package today. It should arrive at its destination on Thursday. 

I forgot to take pictures as I wrapped items so I hope my recipient is able to get pictures when she opens her gifts.

Linda and my SS, I got the project done that I wanted to make. I was up till 4 am working on it. I had never made this pattern before, so it is not perfect, but it was fun and I think my ss will enjoy it. My Mom was like, " How cute"!

Riana, Thank you. I will look to see if I can put all of this in another large flat rate box. I did have some shipping boxes here, but our painter here cut them up to use when he was painting the garage door last week. I have today to figure it out.

Mary, I love it! Maybe ugly sweater ornaments...LOL!

I have a lot of patterns for Christmas ornaments. Maybe we could do an ornament of the month next year. Or, a Christmas block of the month. Or, both! I'm collecting ideas.

Comment by Mary Moore on December 9, 2019 at 11:29am

I love hand made ornaments!  I would love to knit tiny ski sweaters for everyone (well...depending on how many we  are).
