a smiley face and a survival kit for some stormy day this winter. i have a pattern already in mind for these repro colors. this came from vic who lives further in the country than i do, so i am hoping she has plenty left for any dreary day that comes her way this winter. **** no word yet from australia on the arrival of my secret santa package. the postman said it would be 5-7 days by air mail, so it should be any day now. *** on today's agenda is a bit of christmas sewing and maybe get that ottoman cover hemmed and on the ottoman. that leaves me with 1 nonquilty project, that of painting the chair in my sewing room and making a chair seat pad, which will be a string thing done with selvedges.
