Dear Hubby got the triple star award for giving me such a wonderful gift. Him & Girl M didn't wrap the box, but put it in a huge garbage bag with a bow. He drug the package through the kitchen acting like it weighed 100lbs! I was curious! The box was shaped like a vacuum cleaner, I hoped it wasn't! Then I thought maybe it was a new sewing chair........nope, box was too small! I was truly puzzled!
It was a size MEDIUM dress form! My size? I'm not a medium am I?

Then Dear Hubby had Boy T & Lady K bring over a HUGE flat box for me. It was heavy! It looked like it could have been a new TV. I didn't need a new TV. Maybe it was more cubical shelving for fabrics.........but where would I put that. Once again, I was puzzled.
It was a folding cutting table on wheels! I used to have one but it was donated a few years ago because it became so unstable. The screws just wouldn't tighten enough. I didn't know I needed another one but Dear Hubby said he saw me cutting a large pattern out on the floor one day and thought another table would be helpful
How thoughtful! My aching bones thank him!
I'm always curious WHY a gift. What made the gift giver decide I would like the item. Did I mention it, would it make my life easier? Why? I'm always appreciative, but just curious.
Girl M. and Boy AJ gave me a real tripod for my camera so I can try to take better photos. Just what I wanted! It had been in my Amazon cart forever but I never hit buy!
Boy T. & Lady K gave me the cutest sign.
Boy F & Girl K gave me a vintage Simplicity tin, a camper ornament and devotional guide book for Women.

My sweet niece gave me a mason jar pin cushion filled with the sewing related pins that you wear. I can't wait to wear one or ALL of them to Church!

My Mom gave me a pair of Kia scissors (I've never had a pair!). They cut beautifully! A Joann's gift card that I've already bought some patterns with on their Butterick Sale! Some rotary cutter blades, which you can never have enough and a coffee cup that says "I have an oil for that"! Too cute!
I hope to get back to sewing soon.
Until next time!
