    I want to thank Quiltymom for my RAK that I received. My son had it in his stack of mail so I did not get it till late yesterday evening although she had sent it and I got it a few days before Christmas. I can't take a picture right now as I can not find the charger for my camera and my phone camera I am having issues getting them transferred right now so a trip to the phone store is needed. But I did get the cutest ornament along with a really cute card. Thanks again quiltymom, it put a smile on my face.

    Many thanks to Ladybug from me, too! I got the same coaster and my hot chocolate is sitting on it right now!
    Special thanks to my buddy Teresa who sent me the most delightful wine country calendar! I really, really, really needed a new one since the one in my office is still turned to June 2001! Thank you!!!

    Thank you to Sheila-in Erie for two books of ornament Christmas stamps. They will match the stamp and punch I want to use to make cards for next Christmas. Love getting 'non-bill' mail!

    It seems to me that an RAK is whatever the person sending or receiving it wants it to be... The person sending it may keep it private or let the person know who is sending it, maybe they just want to say HEY I'm thinking about you, or you are Special,, it's up to the sender there.. The Receiver also can take it as, I really needed that today,, a special pick me up... a time to think about the sender... Whatever you want to do it's yours to send or receive.. A quiet thank you is nice... JMHO ( I know I have thanked people in the past using names and sometimes pictures but this is a new year.)

    I received and RAK from SEW BEAD IT. A lovely surprise with every piece of fabric something I will be using. You know, I keep reading on the threads, that somehow it seems that these RAK's come at just the right time for the recipients. This one came on a gloomy-can't-decide-if-it-wants-to-rain-or-snow day....wind blowing this was definitely the ray of sunshine missing in my day!

    Thank-you Sew Bead It!!!!!
    Smiles from Idaho,

    WOW!!! what can I say other than "THANK YOU!!!!" to Mary (Havplenty)
    and a mystery RAK from Austin, TX or some place NEAR there.

    Today I received a gift certificate from Mary for a restaurant not to far
    from where I live (less than 2.5 miles). I am going to take my hubs with
    me and enjoy a meal and than do a "no-no" and have a small dessert in
    her honor for her generous kindness.

    My mystery RAK is 2 awesome FQ's that I have actually been THINKING
    about buying, but kept walking away from (trying to show myself that I DO
    have restraint against buying fabric for myself). BUT now I have those awesome
    fabrics and I didn't buy them, so I DO have restraint.

    THANK YOU BOTH your kindness means so much to me and I feel blessed
    to have you and everyone on the RAK list.

    We are up to about 45 members (give or take 1 or 2) on the RAK list. I
    never dreamed so many people wanted to do that.

    Here is a picture of the two FQ's. I think I am going to make a photo copy
    of my GC to put in my folder that has all the RAK items I have received, so
    that I can look back and remember it.

    Awwwww by using my "detective" skills (hahaha) I KNOW
    who my mystery RAK came from, but I will be kind and not
    mention any names.

    At least I THINK that is the person who sent it to me, unless
    someone was traveling near that area and mailed it from there
    (I have been know to do sneaky stuff like that before).

    Lynn_z Send a pm to Quilty Louise, and let her know you want to join.

    I want to say a special thank you to Havplenty for the wonderful restaurant gift certificate she sent as a RAK in my sp package I received yesterday. She was SO generous. Havplenty, I am going to send you a personal note to let you know how your RAK impacted me. It meant more than you can imagine! Thank you.

    I received a little package with NO RETURN ADDRESS (!!!) that had the sweetest little FQ's.
    Thank you, whoever you are.

    24 RAKs are on their way to the post office right now. Who will get them? Who knows????

    I need to start doing this again, I have done it in the past sometimes if I win something on a PIF I will have it sent to someone else just because I can. I am unemployed and have run out of unemployment so mine will have to be from my stash or something I make. Thanks for bringing this back to my attention.
