Hiya! Long time no see.

Just reading your blog heading made me think that I really ought to pull out SINS from my kit box and get some auctions going.....

Hi Gina,

It's been awhile. I had a lot of reading to do to catch up on everything that you and Ken have been doing. You guys sure keep yourselves busy!

I loved seeing all the lovely new pieces in your linens collection. The supper cloth with the rose pattern printed on it, which belonged to your MIL, will look amazing once it's stitched up. The pink rose that you've done thus far is so pretty. And I love the two tone colour on the leaves.

Your newest crinoline ladys doily is very pretty too, and quite detailed. I like the lace trim around the outside of it.

And the cloth for the card table is something I've never seen before. I rather like the colour of the flowers in each vase. Something different from the usual pastel colours.

You find the most interesting things in thrift shops Gina. You must have a good eye. We have a thrift shop run by the Humane Society in the little plaza near where I live and I keep watch for anything that might be of interest to you. Not much in the way of linens though. But stock is changing all the time there so I'll keep watching.

I was interested to see the linens stamped with the British cathedrals. Since Chichester is sort of home base for us in England it was neat to see Chichester cathedral featured on one of the panels.

On your other blog I was fascinated by Ken's new Zebra finches which are quite a lovely looking bird. They must fancy themselves to be very lucky to have such big, fly worthy digs now.

Looks like you had a wonderful Christmas season. I can't believe that it's back to work tomorrow for us. Time flies when you don't want it to.

Warmest best wishes to you and Ken for the New Year.
