    this was my swap from jamimclaugh-she made the cute tote. I forgot to mention Gail made the pretty cute placemats she sent me. Thanks ladies. My computer has been in the shop for 3 weeks so I am just now posting pictures.

    I received my SP package from Sewsonsaturday ( Shannon) and it was a great package.. 6 FQ of Christmas fabric along with 2 yards of a beautiful gold print material, machine needles, butterfly head pins scissor sharpener, she made me 5 really cute ornaments couple patterns from Joann's.. a note in a really cute notecard... Enclosed is picture. Thanks so much Shannon. Forgot to mention the deck of cards, it's a deck that the dealers use in the Casino's my son works for the Chippewa tribe as a Computer programmer and when we were up there in Michigan I got one of the Casino decks of cards, when they get through with them at a table they put a hole in the middle of the deck, so no one can slip one in when they are playing... LOL

    Knittette!! Nooooooo! That is the package I sent AFTER I sent out the first one!!! Got home after mailing and found the fat quarters still in one of my suitcases!! Oh, I wonder where the original package has gotten off to!??!! There was a couple of days difference in the mailing, but the one you got was sent after the one you didn't get. Please let me know if you do not get the other package soon, I will send another. I would not send out just 5 fat quarters!!! You must have felt soooooo disappointed!!! I am sorry. First I was late, then I forgot a significant portion of the package, then the first package doesn't arrive. I am done with the SP swap for a while. I gotta get my act together!!

    Man, I hope you can sort it out, Knitette! another $30 seems like WAAAYYYYY too much! I can't wait to hear what they say. I will send you the money if that is what it is!! I used my postage program on the computer, which has been good so far, I can't imagine what would cause the issue. Do you have pay pal?

    I wouldn't dream of it! I'm going to argue the case when I go to collect it - I think I can also appeal.

    Even if I can't, the charges are pay back, lol. The number of HUGE parcels I've had from swappers? I also order most of my fabric from the US and usually it slips through without charge, so it's 'poetic justice'

    Buslady sent magazines, fabric, tools, socks, coasters and my most wanted - a McKenna Ryan pattern. Thank you Onalee.

    Great package. I think I'm going to invest in that McKenna Ryan pattern if I am good and get some UFO's done.

    Sorry to hear this. I thought everyone had received from August. I imagine you've been very lonely on that bench all by yourself. If you'd said something earlier, I'm sure several of us would have joined you. Here -- I'm passing you a Texas Cowpatty cookie. (Yum!)

    I think that Ladybug posted on the wrong thread. She has received her August package.

    I'm curious. Knittette said she didn't know what the tools were that I sent. How many use a "hemostat" in their sewing? I love mine. Works almost like a third hand when you need to hold something, and I have very fat fingers and acrylic nails, so they are great for getting into tight spots!! The fishermen in the family, and there are many, have them to help get the hooks out. (hopefully from the fish, LOL). The other is a pair of tweezers, but work in reverse of the usual. Squeeze to release. Just found them at a sale and bought several pair, as I thought they would come in handy for much the same things!!

    Well, Lori, you will have to think of that tool then next time you are in a "tight" spot while sewing. LOL
