So, to put all your minds to rest...the Star/Skirt issue is fine. I reread the pattern and I'm o.k.; no frogging necessary! Woohoo!
Now, for some real excitement. I received my dotee from my swap partner, Boxoftrix! All the way from Scotland and she's a very talented lady. And thoughtful too, look....
When I was assigned as her swap-bot partner, she checked out my blog, emailed me to confirm that Whoppers were indeed like their Maltesers. I told her that yes, they were similar, but that their Maltesers were far superior to our Whoppers...and she sent me some!! Isn't that sweet?! And a pair of earrings. I received this package the day after my birthday; so it was a special surprise.
The problem I'm having now is my daughter (8) made me a pair of earrings too and wonders why I was wearing these other ones instead of hers?!
So many earrings; so little time!
