    Congrats to Blaze & Melissa.

    I miss the SP swap also, but I am not sure when i will be able to join
    again.

    We moved mom into a skilled nursing facility and she is under Palliative
    care now, since she was declined for inpatient hospice care. It's hard to
    watch her like this, but we KNOW that we are doing what is best for her
    and not what we want.

    I have taken up making yo-yos for something to help occupy my hands,
    while my mind plays back memories from my childhood. Not sure what
    I will turn all the yo-yos into but at this point I am not thinking about it.

    Love seeing all the awesome and fun packages coming in.


    Hope to join you again someday soon.

    That Blaze looks so cute all dressed up -- don't-cha wanna just hug him tight? There better be some chicken left on "the bench"; I'll bring the chocolate chip cookies. I came home yesterday after being away for over three weeks to nothing but a lot of bills!!! Worse than that, there was no chocolate OR ice cream in the house. Rushing out to store RIGHT NOW!

    Great packages with some great ideas. Sorry to hear about the shingles -- it seems like they are becoming more and more common lately. I also hear "the shot" doesn't necessarily prevent them. Hope you get some relief soon.

    Krystyna congratulations to you and may Blaze and Melissa be happy in their new life!

    I received my sp package today from nancyw and may I saw that I fell in love with the fabric she sent me. She sent me pinks and soft beiges that are so tranquil! I also received rick racks, pink and white, Raspberry Ice (and it tastes so good!), Dove chocolate which I hid from my dd, a book on Machine Applique and a book on the true story of Jaycee Duggard whom was abducted when she was young and 18 yrs later found. Thank you so much for the pkg. Now I will go and enjoy my chocolate and raspberry ice drink. Thank you Nancy!

    Ashjoy, he is very excited and really seems to enjoy it so far, he is glad to be done with clinicals! He works in a lab now and is glad to be going out.

    Oh, my goodness! (can you hear Shirley Temple there)!! The packages are just great. Love the wedding pictures! DD got married 5 years ago. It is an emotional time. By the way, if you even know who Shirley is, welcome to "middle" age. Ha Ha.

    Onalee,

    Not only do I KNOW who Shirley is, but my dad went to school with her
    in the 2nd & 3rd grades, but she is just 7 days older than my dad.

    I grew up watching her movies and am trying to get some of them on
    DVD so my dad can watch them.

    My Wonderful Package

    I got the greatest package from Gail aka Sweetwaterquilter. Here some pics of the wonderful goodies that she sent me.

    Along with a handwritten note, she sent me the following:

    A new scrap pattern book,

    a package of sewing machine needles,

    a package of straight pins,

    travel size hand sanitizer,

    an 8 count of blank cards with kittens on them,

    a small notepad,

    a lanyard that says "To Quilt is Human, To Finish is Divine." Isn't That the Truth!!

    a strawberry the turns into a small tote bag,

    a nice bright book cover with hearts on it,

    4 of the neatest FQ's... One is a Robert Kauffman of little "chocolate Kisses" Just prefect for the "Snack-themed" fabrics I'm collecting for a TV Time lap quilt. And the others are 30's fabrics. They will make for some cute mini quilts.

    A nice length of creamy white solid that I already know where it will go.... I was just thinking about needing some for my 1st attempt at a ribbon border on a mystery quilt that I'm working on. This timing is prefect!!

    A Cut...Sew...& Go Reversible totebag panel. The colors are soooo pretty and with the spring flower print in the softest "brights". Well okay - What I would consider as "brights" ... as I'm a CW/Thimbleberry color type girl. The tote is 36" X 44" that claims after washing, it can be made in one hour. We shall see. The "filler" blue-ish polkadot print on the the panel won't go to waste either... I can get some nice 2.5" squares for at least one or two 9-patch blocks & the rest of the bits are destined for my scrap bag for my FWS blocks. I believe this tote will be just the thing to use as my carry bag to my sewing group on Wednesdays.

    Thank You Gail for such a wonderful package!! The timing was just prefect after a long & difficult week of multiple family issues. I hope this finds you in improving health.

    Sincerely,
    Tricia
