HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYBODY 

I am resolving to finish 2 projects I have set up. One is a Binche learning piece, which is quite difficult for me. I am intimidated by it. The 2nd is a floral Bucks which I intend to decorate a purse. (Enlarged and worked in thick thread so it will hold up to use) This one also intimidates me.

Dear Lorelei,

I just received the message below, and it looks like spam to me.
Can you inform me about mr. James Pollard? Thanks!

Good Day,

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on ( mr.jamespollard100@gmail.com ) for the full details.
Have a nice day
Thanks God bless.
