Helping and being helped in blogland.........

No doubt about it blogland is great.............I am totally addicted to it..............people are just so kind..........and the last few days I have had a chance to "really" talk to 2 bloggers...........so exciting.....

I helped Tracey with a blog problem and that phone call took about an hour and we could have chatted for longer............did you see, check this, OMG did you love those pics etc ..........on and on it went.........it was so fun and yes we did get her little problem sorted out and that took and about 10 minutes you can imagine the rest.......chatter, chatter, chatter....lol...........

Finished this bag today...............

Then today I need a little help from someone to do a swap with.............who else to ask but one of the most prolific sewers in blogland.........(he shows a little on her blog but different parcels show up all over the world).........and so appropriate Linda the Aussie living in US receiving a present from an Aussie for Christmas..........it is a direct swap so they know who is sending and receiving.........but then she says.............what is your phone number................hey I live in OZ and you the US but no a few mintues later the phone rings and Linda is on the other end............ (no international calls made to this house I have no friends/family overseas) I was so excited and then she says "oh you are a silly chook"...........who me a "chook"..........lol........it was so much fun to have a real conversation and no we didn't talk for an hour...........but we fitted lots in........

*******************

Oh and I better tell you who Linda is having a 2nd swap with and it is direct so they both know who is making for them..............welcome Carey.........who has now joined the swap.............she offered to fill in a spot if someone pulled out and no one has and she was keen to get a deadline for some sewing to get back into the swing of it........she has 10 days to make something........nothing like a deadline.........

..............No matter what your problems are someone can always help you just have to ask.........

Like last night when I had to do a urgent phone call to Jodie while trying to work out paper piecing...........
