A Fabulous Parcel and 9-09-09

I had to do a post on this day as it will never be this date again for a long long time. It’s rather scary thinking about when it will be this date again…9-09-2109? I wonder who will look back at this post I am making now and think about who I am and what I liked and loved and did and all that?


On another note I got a fabulous parcel in the mail today..My lovely Aunt sent me it and its full of her collection of laces, laces and more laces, needles and fabric and even a wonderful Thimble! It looks like it is bakelite but I am not sure. I will take a photo tomorrow as I have had a busy day today doing some sewing and other things. I can’t show you what I have been sewing as its not finished yet.

It feels good to be sewing again and I want to thank all of you who asked how my wrist is going. The break is all healed!! But rheumatism has set in and it is giving me a fair bit of pain now and again. But I will overcome it…Got to think positive!!

Hugs to All…..Vicki

That sounds like a wonderful parcel to get! I'm glad the break has healed, but boo to the rheumatism.....can you make yourself a small rice bag to heat in the microwave and put over it?

I guess it will take a while for your wrist to get fully back to normal. Glad you're able to stitch again though!! Sounds like a fabulous parcel from your Aunt ... what a sweety she is to send it all to you!! Can't wait to see what's inside :o).

So happy to hear your wrist is all healed up! And I would love to peak over your shoulder and see what is in that package. Have lots of fun opening it. Kind of like Christmas! Carol


Glad to know you are back to stitching--know you will be coming up with some goodies to show us!!
As for the date today--I did realize it was 9-09 as it would of also been my wedding anniversary (actually is my anni) it would of been 42 years today--even though the marriage did not last--it is still a sweet memory for me--and I was sewing clothes back then and I made my dress and all the bridesmaids dresses--what fun--oh dear--sorry about carry in on so--see ya soon--hugs, just, Di
