Santa Claus is Coming to Town

On Yahoo’s Bent Creek Group, we had a mid-year ornament exchange.  We were under strict orders not to peek until today, June 25.  Not all of us were able to refrain from peeking.  I was on vacation, so I had my temptation removed. ;o)  I was excited, though.  I went to the Post Office to get my mail this morining, eager to see my ornie.  No mail.  😦  Wha?  I thought I said I’d pick up my mail on the Hold Request.  Now I had to wait until after 4pm for mail delivery.  Boo.  Hoo!  No fair!  I came back from vacation with a cold and a scratchy voice.  I wanted a surprise! >insert pouty tantrum here<

Finally, at about 5pm, the mail truck arrived.  There was my vacation mail, all bundled up with my Hold Request stating that I wanted to pick up my mail.  OK, I haven’t completely lost my mind. 😀  I pawed through the pile of catalogs and bills looking for my package.  My secret exchange partner, Melita, had even added a note to the envelope reminding me not to open until June 25! 

Here is my lovely Santa: >clap, clap<

Santa from Melita 06.07  Santa back 06.07
My secret partner hasn’t posted about receiving her ornie from me yet.  I’ll have to wait to share my stitching.

  1. I know what it’s like waiting for the mailman. I wonder if they know how many of us actually stalk them ;o) Melita did a lovely job with the Santa.
