Woohoo! I received an amazing package from revpam. She made me two of the cutest patriotic mug rugs. I love home made gifts like that, very special. The package was also filled with tons of my favorite fabrics, thread, needles, and the sweetest note. She send a kit and pattern, that makes a full quilt. Yes, I am totally spoiled rotten. I love it all Pam. Thank you for sharing so generously from your stash. Just my types of fabrics and colors. I took a picture but I am having a hard time posting. I hope to add it later on.

I got double spoiled yesterday. I also received an amazing surprise package from have4boys. A big stuffed envelop showed up midday. I right aways saw it was from Kathy and could feel a book, so ofcourse I was very excited and ripped it open. Out popped this amazing jelly roll of patriotic strips. I gasped as it was just my colors and style. The book was actually two books and a pattern. One of the books and the pattern was on making quilts from strips so that was perfect. Thank you Kathy. 😊 Again I did take a picture but was not able to post. Hopefully later on it will let me load and post it.

Hi All -
After an unexpected delay after unexpected hemorrhoid surgery complications, my package has headed out to my pal and I received a lovely package from LindaR! I'll get a pic as soon as I can take my phone off the charger.

Default Swap received

Hi Guys,

I received an amazing package from your wonderful hostess Kathy today. She knows that I love Jelly Beans and sure enough there inside the package was a big pack of them. She also sent some Kansas Troubles fabrics which I adore (she was over generous as always) and a cross stitch set! Kathy you are amazing to keep this swap going and great to have as a sender..... thank you so very much.

Now to my person.... I promise that I did mail on time and your package was due to be delivered last Wednesday... but it was held up in Customs until this morning... they blamed Brexit!!!!!! Anyway, it is on the plane today to the USA and will be with by Wednesday.. hopefully. You may also have received a ruler from the MSQC that I sent to you..... but I realised after I sent it that I mailed that to you the last time your were my person.... It did seem familiar when I was doing it - LOL. Anyway, sorry for the delay which everyone is blaming on Brexit - which I did NOT vote for!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sorry to be political - LOL.

Hugs

Caroline

So glad you are enjoying and really hope you enjoy the book. I found the series a few months ago and just finished book...6 I think that just came out and have the next preordered. The long white stuff is thread sock, you just cut a piece to fit your spool and slip it around it, and then the little plastic circles click around your bobbins!

Hello Friends!

I received my secret pal package last week and my husband brought it to the rehab where I am recuperating from a broken leg.

I have to say that my secret pal was creative and fun with my package and a lot of thought went into it.. It really brightened my day to get it.

The only problem is that my Secret Pal is still a secret to me. I didn't find a name on the package or in the package.

I'd like to send a proper thanks to my secret pal whoever you are. Please send me a message at Crispy_Frog and I will get back to you!

Thanks again!

Crispy/Judy
