    I also have been the receiver from two quilt angels. It is difficult to express how great the feeling was that someone(s) cared. This is the BEST of the BEST of everything. I thank all of you.

    That's awesome, and THANKS for sharing here....it's always good to hear a good surprise like that one. I too feel as though I've found 'friends' here, and that's not always an easy thing to do (for me anyway)...I've lived here 4 years now and don't feel as if I've really made friends...except some on this board! I even got teary just reading about your surprise!! :) Thanks again for sharing....

    I am so sorry to hear about your niece, and I also am whispering a prayer for comfort for her.

    I make 21 inch dolls (like a rag doll) that flip with common joined skirts. It makes a doll with 2 personalities. One side is dress up with an embroidered face, the other has a nightgown with a sleep face embroidered. They are given away to local kids with cancer. (Yes, I do boy dolls but of course they are not a flip doll) So far I have 15 done and given to the ACS, and 21 cut out (Bodies) waiting for me to get back to work. I made my own pattern for them.

    Getting back to the point, I had Christmas in August from all over the USA when I posted one of my dolls here, and over 13 people began sending me fabric and trim for making the dolls more possible. I can hardly contain the heart warming experience it was to have all these folks reaching out to help make a child with cancer happier in this small way. I spend about 12 hours, to bring a doll to 'life' but these children suffer a long time . I have a breathing problem but this and the chemo caps, knitting etc....I can do for them.

    Anyway, I can only say thankx to those, and because of this 'board' , packages have come to make the difficult possible. Now, to all those that sent packages, it is your gift to the children for these things and my honor to provide the labor. I will be glad to provide the link if you haven't gone there. Just let me know and I will post it here. I just turned 70.

    I can sure understand the thrill of getting an unexpected package, but in my case it was several and for little guys with cancer. THANK YOU EVERYONE....THANK YOU!!! Hope this message wasn't clear as mud.

    yes, these unexpected quilting surprises are awesome! I recently sent one to someone that I don't know personally and I hope she liked it. It's a lot of fun sending them, too! :D

    My friend and I make dolls for the children who are in terminal care at one of our hospitals. It is so rewarding. Some even go to their siblings who come to visit and need a hug from their own "buddy" Keep up your good work

    I would say that ....that's what pay it forward is all about-
    Angles come from everywhere and when you least expect it, as you have found.

    Wow, Santa in Aug. It sure would be nice if he dropped by here. My DH is on SS and I can't work. Going in for back surgery soon. So I will be down for a while. Trying to get as much done as I can before then. Good Luck on all your sewing and quilting girls and guys.

    Me too, how do you get the address of those you would like to be an angel for/to. Some times the spirit just hits you and you want to do something for someone.
    Another question how do you get personal massages and how do you send them ?? I think I have one waiting and do not know how to retrive it. I clicked on it and that did not help..

    Well, one way is to ask them in one context, as in sending them something that they ask for, then keeping their address and becoming their angel at a later time. Another is getting their address from a friend who might have asked for something in their name if they have been too shy to ask. A third way is if you see someone else has sent that person something, you can ask that third person to share the address so that you can become an angel. In this third situation, you can search threads from the pay it forward links to see who might have addresses to share.
    As to reading your personal messages, just click on private messages at the top of each page, and that will take you to your INBOX. If you have a message, it will take you right to it, and you can read it in the box under the heading: Private Messages:Inbox.
    Below the new message will be a list of any other messages you have in your inbox. You can click on any of those to see them. Other unread messages will be highlighted as opposed to messages you have read.
    You also have a SENT messages box, where you can review any replies or messages you have sent to other members of the board. You just click either on Inbox or Sent to see the one you wish to read.
    Hugs and smiles and happy reading!!

    To send a personal message, just click on the persons name and it will take you to their profile. There you will see in dark letters, Send PM. Just click on that and it will open the send personal message window. Type your message and click send. The person will get your message and a copy will be kept in your SENT file for you to see for review or reminder.

    My Post Office will not accept packages without return address. Said it is the law since 9/11. Wish they would.

    Perhaps an address but no name?

    You could always put fake Initials, and a fake address. They do not check it anyway, as long as something is written in the return address spot. I have done this before when trying to surprise someone. Worked!

    Oh, another thing i have done is put the person's address (the person i am sending the package to) in the return address spot as well. So thier address would be showing twice.
