Monday Mixup - Happy Mail Packages , Status Of The Big Reveal, For My Cat Loving Friends A Bohemian Catsody

 Happy Monday.  Fall has finally arrived here in Southern California.  We've had a few storms come thru where we have collected a total of 1-1/2" of rain.  For us, that is a good start but we certainly need more rain to fill our reservoirs and hopefully a good snowpack year will come! In the meantime, many of us are enjoying the cooler Fall weather although not yet time to pull out our sweaters.   Today, Sally and I want to share what we have been up to, as well as a bit of fun for you!

Sally has been busy preparing Happy Mail packages which have now been shipped to randomly selected blog followers.  We both hope they will bring a happy smile to each recipient.  They are simply little packages, each different, with many containing "little" handmade gifts. All meant as surprises to the recipients, to let them know how much we appreciate them as blog followers. Here are a few photos of "some of the items" included in the packages:

Some Happy Mail includes fabric

Some include Halloween decorations

Mug Rugs

quilting templates


zipper bags

and a variety of other items not photographed, but all intended to be "Happy Mail" surprise packages to blog followers who were randomly selected.  More happy mail will be sent to more blog followers soon.

This weekend Sally and I picked up two new machines for our sewing room.  It is amazing how helpful Sally was.  I think she can't wait for me to learn all the new features on these machines and create whatever she dreams up.

We unboxed them in our garage, but haven't yet set them up on our sewing table, nor taken pictures of what is inside those boxes.  So, it will be a little while before we can share our big reveal.  But two big boxes have now been unpacked.

Lastly, for our friends who love cats, we want to share a cute Youtube Video Musical that we enjoyed and we hope you enjoy too!  If you have a headset you may want to use it for better music clarity.

Bohemian Catsody - A Rhapsody Parody Song for Every Cat Queen and King!

We hope you have a wonderful week with plenty of time to enjoy and create.  We'd love to hear what you are working on.  As Darlene is in the process of selling off my older machines and setting up my newer ones, she fears it will be awhile before she finds time to actually sew in her sewing room.  But Sally is doing all she can to help her get back to creating ASAP!

I can't wait to see the big reveal. Those will be lovely little happy mail packages. We got .07" of rain here. We need so much more. Glad that you got a decent storm there. Let's hope they continue.
