    a few weeks ago my sister emailed and said she had a gc to spend at the fat quarter shop but didn't have enough in her cart, so did I want anything. I showed her a couple of fat quarter sets I liked but told her I would pay her back. As usual she'll have none of that. So anyway I told her I liked the blue one better (there was a blue and green-same price-riley blake's sugar and spice line). Today I get a box in the mail and here's what's in it:
    3 Judy Neimeyer patterns
    extra foundation papers for printing
    purple thang (what do you use this for?)
    add-a-quarter ruler
    2 jelly rolls, one of which is a batik
    2 charm packs
    and BOTH of the fat quarter sets :shock:
    Plus a few scrapbook magazines

    My sister sends me fabric care packs all the time. I so lucky (and spoiled) to have such a great sis!! :mrgreen:

    It's good to be spoiled!:thumbup: I use the "Purple Thang" to help me remove foundation paper from the back of my blocks.

    That is so cool. I had a sister that was like that but shes gone now. Her and I were the best of friends. And she would always give me stuff. Not long before she had died, she started quilting. Shes been gone almost 11 years now, and her husband still won't depart with any of her stuff. But maybe one day he will. :)

    I really want to do something for her but I don't know what. She is a way better quilter and sewer than I am and probably faster too. She also knits, which I can't do (she made my dd the most adorable lettuce edge leg warmers). I need to think of something though...

    Well, hell's bells. That is awesome! I don't have a sister; only one mangy brother. Yup, you have been promoted to "spoiled brat" in my books.

    Great sister! Bless you both. Maybe just make her a mini or doll quilt. Just enough to say thanks in a special way. I always wanted a sister. My older brother died young and my younger brother lives far away now. He's a treasure to me. I've started to gather fabrics for a baseball and photo quilt for him.

    My sister and I have a running joke: You're the "nice" sister. I was telling a coworker about my sister being the nice one in our family. His comment was that I was a nice person so when I told my sister the story, she agreed with him. But really, she's much nicer than I am.

    Sister Love! What a selfless sister you have! She sounds like a very special person. It's also nice to see how much you appreciate her.

    That's so sweet! My youngest DD passes a LQS every day twice a day taking grands to school. When she has a little time to kill she'll stop in and ask What's new my Mom doesn't have? The owner knows me and always has something I think I need. LOL. I get all the new quilting gadgets from DD. I told her they will all be hers one day so may as well buy them now.

    You are so fortunate to have such a generous loving sister. The Purple Thang is used to turn corners right side out, ie. you make a pillow, turn it right side out, and use the purple thang to get the corners pushed out. You can also use it as a stiletto...holding those seam allowances in position before they go under the needle. Make sense?
