Early Happy Birthday to me!!!

 So, I decided what I wanted for my birthday and told my husband.  
It was on sale at a local store and I was afraid it would cost a lot more by the time it was actually my birthday.
Then I looked around and realized it was cheaper on Amazon than locally and shipping was free, so I ordered it there.  I guess I should have waited because the reason I was getting it early was because the sale was going to end.  
Minor technicality.

 I found this on my doorstep this afternoon and was disappointed in the carrier.  You would think that now that the holiday rush is over they could be a little more careful.
I took pictures of the damaged packaging because I wanted to show how bad it was in case anything inside was lost or damaged.

The book was ok.  It is a very cool book.

And the big present was ok - well packaged inside it's own box which was inside the damaged outer box.
I'm very excited - I have a bunch of fabric and now I'm going to sew some of it up.  A very good friend has lent me her sewing machine for well over a year now (that is a VERY good friend, isn't it?).  I can return it now, if she needs it, or let Girl Far From Home continue to sew on it.  Girl seems to really like sewing - good thing she got some of the family genes.

And Dena, my dogs have decided that they really like the bigger bed.  I'm going to have to go get another - do you still want the smaller one or would you rather the bigger one?  The smaller one will be pretty easy to mail.

Nice looking machine! Will look forward to seeing your projects! I can't believe you have time to sew with all the knitting you do!
