Welcome to the Quilting Board!
[QUOTE=clsurz;5827204]Please let's not start this again "people we don't know" and labeling them as deadbeats until they prove themselves as such. I experienced this on another swap recently being labeled as perhaps a deadbeat because a gal did not recognize me as being an avid swapper when I still had 19 days to send in my swap.
I guess since 2 months in a row I've not gotten a package from my swap partner, it makes me wonder sometimes. I had to have an angel in Dec. and I am sure Lori has assigned one for Jan. Still waiting on Jan. package. I'm sure people wonder about me sometimes, but I have never failed to send my pal a package. I could have left that last sentence off my statement. I sure don't wont to offend new swappers. We were all new at one time.
I have done some shopping, got a few things for my partner.
Hav4boys, I'm so sorry to hear about your son. I hope a good solution is found. Prayers going up for him.
Fayzer, the community/groups was supposed to replace the old matrix that hostesses kept track on. I mistakenly thought that we could have group discussions there and upload pix since those were options, but was recently told that's not the place for it. Ooops!
TooManyUFOs, I'm so glad that all is well with your daughter.
Tracy, that tornado looked scary. We had high winds at the apartment complex and it wasn't scary until I looked out the window in the morning and saw that huge chunks of the slate roof had crashed to the pavement below. I decided to stay home that day.
Tricia, prayers for you and your husband. I hope all turns out well. More prayers going up!
AntiqueGirl68 PM Lori. It might not be too late.
Nice bag, Louise!
Measure once. Cut twice. Cover up with mess with lots of quilting. Voila! Art!
I have a special surprise for someone who is NOT my SP
(at least not that I know of yet).
I will NOT give any names YET, but they will know who they
are once they get the mail next week (latter part of the week).
They live East of Colorado but how far East I won't say I will
tell you who it ISN'T (looks at Teresa mscupid), as she is already
getting mail next week from me (an quilt I designed for pattern).
So everyone if you KNOW that I have your address be on the look
out for a little surprise from me. I just hope you like it.
Louise - I collect mugs from the U.S. and around the world . Also collect homemade pincushions, and sewing/quilting themed fabrics.
When are we suppose to get the name of our SP's?
Oh Hav4boys I am so happy for you!!
Knitette, love those little bags!
Hi All -
I just felt the need to tell you what an amazing group of ladies you are. I haven't known you long, but I feel right at home. I realize that I need to actually SAY it, not just think it.
This epiphany was brought about, unfortunately, by the loss of one of my quilt guild members. She was with us all weekend at retreat, and by Tuesday, she was gone We were all sitting in the funeral home tonight, and we all made a point to tell each other that. I hadn't seen many of her quilts since I am relatively new (3 1/2 yes) to the guild, so it was nice to see them - the family had put up quilt stands with about 10 or so of her quilts, and her exploding star quilt was on the casket, under the flowers. That idea is going in my list of thing for hopefully far in the future. But I just felt the need to say thanks for being so welcoming to me when I was new, and that I am really enjoying talking to all of you here on the board!
