    I got an awesome package today but I'm not sure who to thank....the card is from Mary H. and she sent some wonderful goodies including a huge pack of smarties, 2 quilt magazines that I haven't seen before, so can't wait to look through them, a box of note sheets, a large piece of creme fabric, a handmade Valentine potholder, handmade Valentine mug rug, handmade Valentine pincushion, a vintage pincushion, and a handmade spools case. Thank you sooo much!!

    I believe there are 6 states with the cardinal as their state bird. But I could be wrong.

    clsurz I'm so glad you liked it. I had fun putting it together for you. Very limited shopping here, just wish I could have filled in a few more of your wants. But I do love doing these swaps, like a little surprise each month...

    For my SP your package went out today. It is currently 63 degrees where you are located at and the other clue your zip code adds up to 15.
    Happy Quilting!

    And I did!

    Kimberly,
    I LOVE the awesome box you sent me. Today had been a kind of rough day, and it was so nice to have the box waiting for me when I got home. It was the highlight to my day!
    For those of you wondering what was in my awesome package...
    I got 3 different colors of batiks , butterfly, Aunt MArtha's transfers, (I think I'' use these for work on a pillow case , great handwork!) Embroidery floss is in colors that I don't already have.
    And the life savers, are going in my bag for church.

    She sent me 2 differnet kinds of rulers, I didn't have either of the rulers , and I am getting used to piecing , so these will be a huge help!

    It was a great package!
    THANK YOU so very much for your thoughtfulness in trying to include so much!
    LaQuita (aka) - Yai-Yai to the most precious grandbaby around of course I'm partial! LOL

    HAPPY QUILTING!

    Krystyna it was very hard to leave all 3 of them. I will have to post a picture of the other 2, Austin 8 and Natalie 5. Today was a good day at the Cancer Center. Everything looks good and the Dr said she is doing great! I take her back again on March 22nd. The funny thing was that she took her "Chemo Quilt" with her even though we were only getting the bone strengthing medicine Zometa and only takes 20 minutes. She has taken her quilt with her every time she went for treatment. She loves Explaining that the blocks come from all over the world!

    I hope that the March Swap Sign Up has already started by then, as I will be gone all day again.

    MsCupid, I make the stilettoes out of turkey basters, but they aren't that hard to make and you probably could do them yourself. PM me if you need help in doing them.

    Brenda, what a cute package you received. And Sue, that egg is toooo cute!
    Lori, can't wait to see the other two grandbabies. I'm glad Marty is doing well and so happy that the chemo quilt is getting good use and lifting spirits!

    Awesome packages so far - love all the handmade items; you're a crafty bunch.

    Secret pal another clue - postman said your package needed a passport.
    Be good to yourself - do one thing each day that makes you smile.

    sp #1- your moniker has two constants and two vowels.

    sp #2 - your state name has a man's name embedded in it.

    Happy guessing.

    My SP package went out today. I was bright and early at the post office. The package is going north of me, with lots of goodies. I hope she likes everything. PO says it should arrive Monday.

    If you look at post #323 on this thread, you'll see the lovely Hummingbird one Vanogay did for me. Photo doesn't do it justice.
