Today I received and opened my SP package. First of all, I enjoyed that items were wrapped. It is a treat to open up a present. I noticed right away that i had a package of peppermint bark. My favorite holiday treat. First I opened an offset spatula which i asked for. Thank you. I also had a homemade stocking, you can see in picture filled with goodies: a little poetry book, a stack of rainbow 🌈 FQ, a tin of homemade cookies, quilt clips and a lovely note.

Uhmm. The picture icon requires an URL and the photo is saved on my device. I have a picture ready and waiting.

Thank you so much MizMelly. It was so fun to open everything. I will use the stocking again for my mom because she will be with us this year for Christmas. I plan on sharing the cookies with my DH as dessert after dinner. I want to post the pic but forgot how since the picture icon requires an URL and I can’t seem to cut and past the picture in.

Default Dec Secret Pal

My gift came from Pamela Oryshchyn. Actually she had be for the Secret Santa and the December Secret Pal. She sent a lot of fabric, a pattern, an Accuquilt die and mats, a cute Gooseberry calendar, little notebooks, needles, a log cabin kit from Jordan's Fabric. Two handmade cards that have little pockets that I can reuse if I want to.

I'm attaching both pictures as I put the Gooseberry Calender with my Secret Santa instead of the Dec Secret Pal items.

Thanks again Pam.

One needs to go to "Go Advanced" button that is below the "Quick Reply" box (I haven't had luck getting pictures to post going in that way.) I have to hit the Red Reply Button that is above and below the posts,

Long Answer to post a picture:
We like pictures. In order to post pictures on Quilting Board, you will probably need to reduce or compress the picture to a file size that is smaller than 2MB. How to post images can be found at https://www.quiltingboard.com/attach...020-01-17-.pdf
Don't forget to scroll over to the far right to find and click on the "Upload" button.

I have found that only the big red "Reply" button or "Quote" work to give me the paper clip icon to work for adding pictures.

Some additional info regarding reducing images at post #4 and images for the scroll and upload button can be found at #5 of quilt block ID?

Another way to post pictures can be found at 2021/2022, 2.5” Birthday Swap

Or simply - Make sure pictures are smaller than 2MB
Click on red "Reply" button
Click on the paper clip icon
Click browse - choose picture/s. (only 5 allowed per post)
Once they show up as being loaded, Scroll over to the right side and click on "Upload"
After the pictures show up as being attached, you can close that window and go back to the screen to finish posting your post.

I am still waiting for my package to arrive. I am sure that it will be worth the wait. I'll let you all know when it gets here.

Default Received from Gaijin

Hi Guys,

I received another wonderful swap from Deborah. She is always so thoughtful and send such beautiful items - she knows my takes and likes so well. She also sent a lovely toy for my dog Chloe, but she ran off with it before I could photograph it. Deborah sent a Layer Cake and a yard of my favourite fabric, my most wanted item so of Roxanne's Baste it, a beautiful panel, 2 wonderful books and..... my favourite jelly beans. And the toy for Chloe!!!

Deborah, thank you so much for being my swap partner and my friend.
