I have had an e-mail they say they would put the value on it but mark it as a gift which in my case they not done that so that the allowance is £15 but as a gift £34 so that the limits but value can change in dollars depending or the rate they are using

I am wearing a cupcake apron...love the fabric!!! the cupcakes are set on a black background...well, I did the unpardonable thing yesterday!..I slashed a big junk of skin out of my finger with the rotory cutter!..that will teach me!!..don't forget to wear the special gloves, when using the cutter!!
....I came back to the Nest, early this morning, to face dirty dishes and laundry!..Welcome home! LOL..I am all caught up..so I will be sewing at the table, after the last bunch comes out of the drier...wonderful!
.....great News!..my Julie is taking over our banking!!..that has been a real worry to me!..as you know, Big John has Alzheimer's and Dementia, but insists on doing the books..scary for me...and he won't let me do them..( I think it is a pride thing)..,
...but since Julie is our daughter and Caregiver.,she insisted, and he is listening!!..thank you Lord!... What a weight off my shoulders!..just caring for him, is enough...he is now at the stage, where he wants to throw everything away..then he forgets the reason Why!..we go see his Gereatric Doctor on Tuesday...

Thanks Ruthann

No cupcakes inside one they get squashed in the mail plus the person is diabetic so got her some No Added Sugar Chocolate to go with it

The cupcake fabric was expensive have some cheaper ones but not quite as nice but still nice
