    Amen, Lori, good luck with the surgery. I'm glad you do so much for us considering every thing else you are having to handle.


    Great packages all and I am so glad that I could put a smile on Quiltdragon's face. Watch out for those tornadoes, dang!

    Mailed out my package today to my sp who is southwest of me. She should get it Saturday or Monday.

    I was in a local quilt shop this afternoon and was talking to a very nice lady. She said she was shopping for things for her secret pal. So.....curious that I am....I asked her if she was on the Quiltboard and she said yes.
    This is the first time I have met someone in person that I am familiar with from the board. It is dconroy84....Donna......and we shop some of the same stores. How neat is that to go shopping and meet just out of the blue!
    Hi Donna!

    I sent out my package today. Expected delivery is Monday....so, SP be on the lookout!

    There are some awesome packages coming in. And I will keep all those in need of prayers for healing and strength in my prayers at night. Despite everyone's medical difficulties, everyone on here is so nice and cheerful. You all are a strong and wonderful bunch of ladies!!

    Hi Sue,
    I like you was very surprised to meet someone from the SP Swap. It was so much fun talking to and looking at the material and all the patterns in the new show. Later in the afternoon I went to Mara's to look for more stuff needless to say she and Al were surprised to see me so soon (just there the day before) and I told her about meeting you at the Quilted Thimble. Then while standing there talking to her she was wrapping up some more fabric packets for the shop hop and she used my finger to hold the ribbons while she was tying them. I also learned there is a free book that goes with the fabric bundles if you go to all the shops so I may just try and get the rest next week. Maybe we can meet somewhere for a coffee or tea sometime.

    Great pkgs everyone! Hope to get something homemade done this am and get my sp her pkg in the mail today. (Fingers crossed!) Continued prayers for all on the board and Lori take care of yourself, hope everything works out for you. Hope all are safe from the wild weather. We just had strong thunder storms. DH is away on business and he said they had terrible storms also. You are right so neat to meet someone from the board. Need to get sewing, everyone have a wonderful day!

    It amazes me how many people I have met that are on the board. Our quilt retreats first year (this will be the third) a couple of us were talking and we took a show of hands. About half of the people there were on the board. Some were people from church or that I went to school with, but didn't know they were on the board. Oh, and the ones that weren't on the board were then encouraged to do so.

    Lori, good luck with your surgery. I want it soooooo bad, but my insurance won't cover it. I've been through the classes twice thinking it was gonna happen just to be let down by, proboly, some skinny little wench, at the insurance place. LOL Just kidding with that last one!! I am woman! Hear me roar! I will loose this extra baggage attached to my mid-section.

    My SP's package was delivered yesterday. I hope she got it, I sent it UPS and the tracking says in the reference line "met customer man". Have no idea what that means...

    Went to see Gail today and she is doing well, has hopes of getting out of rehab on Monday and having the rehab at home starting next week... She got her SP package while I was there, her husband brought it from home, she asked that I thank Rebecca Mc Creary ( rmccreary) for the package.. Am sure she will thank you when she gets home she just wanted you to know she received it...

    Have a nice evening everyone.. MY SP you hopefully will have your package tomorrow... ... :-)
