A lot has been happening here this past week, I was hurrying from the post office and I fell. I had to be taken to the ER by ambulance. I was pretty banged up and I'm still hurting after a week.
Anyway I had some good news, both Miet and Susan received the other part of their Christmas boxes as you can see from the photo below, courtesy of Susan. The only difference in the packages was the color of the humbag bag.

We had a new swap on the CAPC group and this is what I sent to my swap partner Marian in Australia.

This gorgeous mouse angel is what I received in return, together with some fabric, a postcard of where Marian lives and all wrapped up in the cutest baggy.

This is the back view of the mouse angel where you can see the scissors Marian added. Thank you Marian for a wonderful swap package.

Now I'm working on some new pincushions, one is for a birthday and two will be for swaps.

Election Day

Today is Election Day here, we are hoping that our candidate will win. It started to rain as soon as we left the house to go vote so that meant that Liat couldn't get out of the car as her crutches slip on the wet ground. When we arrived at the polling station we also found that instead of our usual classroom (we vote in the primary school near us) that they moved our station to a new place (the size of a closet) and with steps up to it. That also meant that even if we had waited for the rain to stop Liat still couldn't vote because of the steps.
My friend Susan gave me permission to post a photo of Abby, her new puppy. Take a look, isn't she the cutest puppy you've ever seen.
Here is Susan with Abby.
Till next time,

February already

Can't believe it's February already. January just whipped by and I didn't manage to get all my photos uploaded. Oh well there's always tomorrow. I sent off the rest of the Christmas packages for Miet and Susan. I didn't take photos so as not to spoil their surprise. I hope they like what I sent.

My friend Susan has a new puppy, Abby is her name and she is just the cutest little doggie. Susan took a photo of her in a cup - LOL, I'll ask her if I can post the picture here too.

We had a "Swap 3 items" on the CAPC group for January, Sahar helped me package up my swap for Marian in Australia but left out half of the package - LOL. I sent off the other part on Friday so I hope it all gets there soon. As soon as I receive my package from Marian I will upload a photo.

Liat decided that she wanted to try and drive her own car today. I've been her driver for the past two months. She did very well and is now thinking about going in to work for a couple of days next week to see how she manages that. We have to go back to the specialist on the 23rd so we'll see if there is any improvement with her ankle and if he'll let her put her whole foot down and not just the toes.
till next time,
