They were cotton, but sure that muslin was used in "those days" too.

Looks like several of us are having finding certain types, and or colors, so I am going to extend the mail by date to 13 October. Please feel free to mail when you have everything ready, but I also understand that finding a specific color or type is hard this year. So take your time, you still have 3 more weeks.

I got my box, Linda Kay!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you, my buddy LK!!
lol had to laugh - all red & white! You're so thoughtful!!
She sent - the beautiful nightgown is exactly what I like - white cotton with old fashioned lace and ribbon! I couldn't have picked out a better one!
She also sent Milano cookies, a white bath "puff", red "aloe infused" moisturizing socks (never heard of such a thing before!); white anklet socks, red nail polish (for my toes?); Foot Scrub, Foot Cream, and Olay Moisturizing cream, and Spiced Apple Cider
The cookies are so delicious! I've seen them before, but never got them... yummmmmmy!

LK - I'm wearing the nightie now! When I got home from driving in this snow storm (well, the snow was lightly falling, but the stuff that had already fallen - WELL!!), I was ready to relax. It was really tough driving in it (and tough to go to my last employment to pick up my timesheet, other stuff, and return the fob). So, after I opened the box, I drifted off to sleep on the couch, then thought "I'd like to Really relax!" So I put on the little white fluffy footsies, the white gown, and my velour housecoat, and within 1/2 hour a church friend of mine stopped by for tea LOL

She came by cuz she knew I'd lost my job, and she's counselled people in my position before, so she thought she'd pop by to see me. She & I are 2 of the only people I know who still believe in dropping in to visit without a whole big production of invitations! I didn't know that about her, nor she about me, but we know NOW! She said she'll drop in some other time, too. I love it!!
We had a lovely cup of tea. She would like to buy one of my teapots (I collect tea cups, and Had to have a few teapots to go with them, of course) LOL

How wonderful that your church friend sees the need to visit you Susan.

Yes Betty, I got those aloe infused socks too in a previous P.J swap. LK gave them to me, weren't our feet saying "AHHHHHH"?

Tina, I love those socks and of course, Liz picked a perfect color! Fuzzy socks too? Wow!! One can never get enough of fuzzy in winter!

I got my nails painted purple, but not my toes. Hmm.. maybe I should join you all for a painting party!!

Mornimg all, cold, damp and rainy day here, it's a "stay in your Jammie's" kind of day..

From what I hear and see of the Jammie's may of you will be awfully comfy in your new Jammie's if it's that kind if day in your next of the woods.

LindaKay, Joyce and Bertie bought bottle of the same after tasting it, however, arms filled with packages, she dropped it entering the hotel..sooo didn't get to taste it..

I'll have to be more vigilant on my outings as to taste booths..did lose my gravy mix in my travels..

OMG!!!
Package of POSITIVELY PURPLE PASSION PJ came here!!!
Here I am reinstating NO kiddy prints, and Kaitlyn (Goober) has humbled me with her very mature thoughts!! God knows she made my day. Kaitlyn, you must have spent all your savings on me!! Thank you so much!!
Read this ladies. See the purple jammies? White moon and stars to lull me to sleep. I'm of course over the moon!!
Not one but 2 pairs of purple fuzzies. Smiling away more with that special bottle of purple nail polish, a good brand too. (I always get cheap brands that don't last but 2 days) Gonna redo my nails and use this just for the big LSU vs Alabama game next week.
The irony is, I'm sure Kaitlyn's been told I'm a big LSU fan.. and she being from Alabama, honored my team's primary color!!
A lovely Halloween card, with a pack of seeds for spring. Looking forward to purple blooms!
You are so generous, Kaitlyn. Thank you so much again.. ^_^ ^_^

Heather, I'm glad you got the box. One of the packets of soup came from France. If you like it, let me know. I'll have my sister send more.

How sweet - Kaitlyn's sent your LSU colours, Jaye!
ah yes, purple. I find I'm wearing a lot more purple lately... no idea why, other than it's a good Feng-shui financial colour lol

That's strange, Susan. Maybe you should consider these.
As far as I know, purple is one of the ancient Chinese imperial's colors. The other being yellow.
Red and Gold are the colors for prosperity. Each year, for Chinese New Year, we use special red envelopes with gold symbols to hand out money to kids.
New Chinese stores will have red banners hung, or red lanterns, to welcome good fortune.
Wearing jade also is supposed to bring good luck and protection. (My first wedding ring is a jade, see how the marriage ended? Lol)

Back in Singapore, we have Feng Shui masters, and they always preach that to bring in good luck, a big buddha with gold ingots held up in the air, should be in everyone's homes! But then, my Muslim family doesn't practise Feng Shui, and I secretly hoard a fat belly buddha and rub it's tummy every day asking for good exam results. That didn't work.

In this house, I have a three legged frog with a penny in it's mouth.. I'm about to extract that penny!! Lolol!!

I saw that, according to the Bagua, you should have something purple in your "financial" corner, which is the SE corner of your home. Whether it's a purple flower, or something else, doesn't matter, as long as it's not a dead object, so dead (or plastic) flowers are a no-no...
I know about the New Year custom of gold (chocolate covered) money in envelopes being given out. A previous neighbour of ours gave us (adults) gold foil-covered chocolate money, in an envelope, on Chinese New Year, in January.
We don't have a Buddha, but I have seen Buddhas such as you describe in Asian restaurants, as well as small fountains with gold (?!) coins in them.

Liz they are so pretty! I haven't worn my fuzzy socks yet. Waiting for a real COLD day. The a/c is still on here!

Thanks LK. Looks like the mug rug got hidden somewhere. That's the reason I've been slow in mailing out the box.
My first attempt in doing a hexagonal one, and goodness.. no one warn me!! The hardest part was getting the points to meet!! I can feel some quilting sisters' grinning away!
Heather, I hope you can use it.
I tried to 'bake' your name on the coffee cup, but the pen I use wasn't the right one.

Liz.. the instruction I found was to use a Sharpie, then bake the cup @ 350 in a regular oven for 1/2 hr. It didn't work. What pen was I supposed to use, do you know?

Anyway, to preserve my memory, here's a pic of the mug rug. Ehem..

OMG the mug rug is AWESOME!!! Kinsey cat tried to steal it from me. Sorry it didn't make it into the pic. It's beautiful & the mug has become my official cocoa mug. I had the potato soup for lunch Sat soooo yummy! I'm taking the chicken to work tomorrow. I love soup. I'll let you know if I need you as a dealer for french mushroom soup. It looks really good. I'm going to make it for dinner tomorrow. Great soup weather now. I love it any time of year though. I have to go to the web address on the other packets & see if I can order some. Haven't seen that brand in stores here & wow is it yummy! I just made myself hungry.

So glad everyone likes their pj's. Goober had so much fun getting them and she helped pick mine out for Liz too.

I just love my gown and will try to post pictures when I go to the library tomorrow.

Thanks so much Susan!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Goober subscription has run out and hopefully I can renew it next payday. We have spent all the extra on insulation for the new place . It is 39 degrees in the house right now so I am going to get in the new car and go to town and get more supplies. I am hoping to find an attic door with stairs at the habitat for humanity restore today. Then I am off to visit Crystal.

Susan, if I know you, you've already begun praying for all that's good for Kris and Goober! And that costs your heart, my dear...

Heather, would you be surprise if I were to tell you that all but one package of soup are purchased at Walmart? Yes m'am. I was delighted to find them!!
The Tiramisu cakes were purchased at Big Lots. You can find a bunch of international goodies there. maybe you can find something for Kinsey!
I can live on soup, especially now.
Be safe Heather, don't wait till the last minute. That storm won't be having any friends.

I want to thank whoever got Goober the subscription renewal. She will be online after school to add her thanks.

I got my attic stairs yesterday and a waterproof shower light and also a mirrored bar light to go over the bathroom mirror. And all for only...

$59.50!!!!!!!!!!!!

Then went to goodwill and scored 2sheets of pegboard for only $8.08!!

Got 10 rolls of insulation too.

Then went to hobby lobby and found an ottlight. Regularly $109.99. I scored it for only $28.90!!!!

I really needed that for my desk, I can use it for so much of the tiny things I work on and it will help me with my one-step painting too. I want to do a undersea mural in the bath room and some of the clay work will involve very detailed underglazes. I still felt guilty getting it as I was really not on my list of" necessary items. Ralph was ok with it though.

Then went to see Crystal / Golhillal.. We had a great visit and she let me steal a huge pot of bergonia's.. Pretty sure I misspelled that. Any way it was a great visit.. even stayed to late and had to drive home in the dark... That was not fun at all...but I made it home and all is fine.

Wearing my super soft nightgown right now!!! Need to get dressed to got to the library.. but it feels just too good to take off. I was very warm and happy in this last night!!!!

And Susan you owe me nothing else... This is the perfect gown for me!!!!!!!!!!! ;)

You're such a sweetheart. I'm so glad to have you, my fairy friend!!
Glad to hear Goober's got her account updated and she can access again! There are Angels at DG, for sure!!!!

Got a call today from an agency - they'll put me forth as a candidate for a perm job with an aviation company. It's for an Exec Ass't job. I'll likely hear mid-next week as to whether I will get an interview.
It's the agency that put me in my last temp position.

So tired - think I'll go for a nap. Had an app't with a Job search company this am, then a funeral this afternoon... now ready to had a wee sleep...
