Lesson Learned

Wow!!! Were we in for a shock on Friday. We went to UPS to ship one of our pots and found out that our box is now considered oversize inside dimensions 24 x 24 x 47 becomes outside dimenions of 25 x 25 x 48.  This quadruples the weight of the box.  42 lbs becomes 168 lbs. It would cost $315 to ship an $80 pot to Ardmore, OK.  If it were one inch less it would cost $167.  The gentleman suggested we ship on greyhound.  I did not know you could do such a thing.  Greyhound will ship the same box…

Sewing and Stitchery Expo

Hi Gals,

I had a fantastic time at the sewing and stitchery expo in Puyallup.  I was a good girl and only spent $40.  This was my budget for the show.  Got a yard of hello kitty fabric for my granddaughters quilt ($20/yd) wow.  Now to decide what to do with it.  It will be the focus fabric and will fill with pinks, teals and lemon yellow.  I am thinking a bear's paw.
