It’s Here!

The man with the short pants in the Brown Truck paid me a visit.

UPS truck

Can you tell what it is from the box?

Maybe now?

 I was so excited, I thought I was GO!ing to faint!

I’ve almost completed October’s FFF and as soon as that’s done, I will be GO!ing to play with my new toy.  I’m really struggling with myself and am fighting the urge to jump right in but I know that if I get distracted, I’ll have a difficult time getting back to it.  I want a clear head before I get GO!ing.

Like the song says, “Tomorrow, tomorrow…it’s only a day away”. 

Happy stitching!

Kaaren ♥
