    To my SP....
    Your package is ready, the weather is just NOT cooperating! Dug out of 30 inches of snow this weekend, and tomorrow we are in for some delightful freezing rain...happy, happy, joy, joy! So in the mail on Tuesday.
    Favorite colors yellow and blue!
    Blessed Be

    Well, my SP didn't post a photo of her pkg, so I thought I would for her. I asked if she wanted me to, but got no reply, so here it is-minus the Chaco refill I picked up at my LQS on the way to the PO. I am glad I took a pic before sending it.Name:  image.jpg

    My 2nd SP's has also been delivered but haven't heard anything from her yet. Waiting for mine to make there way here. May take awhile with all the snow everyone has been getting. Corrections, that some of us are getting. Wish I had the nice sunshine.

    Haven't been on much lately and trying to catch up but I have to quit for tonight so here it goes
    gzuslivz-I totally agree with you on your experience, I too would have been hurt if I made something for someone that they specifically said they wanted and in their favorite colors, and then they sent it to someone else, And on top of that to not even mention it was made by you. In your case it was made specifically for them and it was something they asked for.
    I do try to stay in the $10 budget, using coupons, looking for sale items, close outs etc. I do so as consideration to all who want to participate. Last year a few had expressed they couldn't afford to spend more and dropped out one did say it was because she felt her sp would feel slighted because her package wasn't as full as others. The padded flat rate priority is under $6, unless it went over with the latest increase, and unless something is fragile I can usually get my stuff in one of them. Ok moving on.

    The Cardinal is the state bird of 7 states: Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, North Carolina, Ohio, Virgina, and West Virgina. And I think your are correct skaduzy about Ohio the only state that has Hang on Sloopy as their official R & R song.

    I hope to get my package in the mail by Tuesday; It will travel more than 500 miles, but less than 1000. I gave other clues earlier, but don't remember if I said it is going west of me. They are not having a heat wave right now either.

    Krystyna hang in there. I haven't had personal experience with rebuilding after a disaster, but it seems seldom do folks get reimbursed for their total cost, and nothing for all the work you have to do to get any of it done.
    Hope all that were hit with blizzard weather are ok. Think there were 2 in the country this weekend the NE and west / midwest areas.

    Lori glad Marty is doing well. Good news. And Yes your GD is adorable!!! can't wait to see other pics, well maybe they are posted but I'm only to pg. 44 so if they are on I'll see them tomorrow.

    Hope to get my package pic posted after work tomorrow.

    Just to be clear, I am not the Jill that had the fire. But, it has made me more aware about leaving my iron on, even though it has auto shut off.

    Ok, SP, your package is out in the front hall for the mail lady to pick it up for you and wing it on it's way. It's going slightly west and north of me, but not too far.

    Today it's just wet and cool, not anything like the NE got nailed with. We lived there in '78 and had a very interesting time trying to get home to E. Mass from W mass...can just imagine how hard it is to get around. One of the very first things we sold was our snowblower and ya know what, I don't miss it a bit.

    K, keep fighting. I know when I was trying to get disability, they just keep saying no so many people just give up. I wish it weren't such a mess and that you could just go file a simple set of papers and get a check. Good luck.

    Secret Pal here is another clue for you - about 20+ years ago your home was more than likely part of farmland but now your community is a sub of a suburb.
    Be good to yourself - do one thing each day that makes you smile.

    Love , love all the wonderful packages! I don't have a stilleto and if anyone out there is feeling genorous, my birthday is March 13 and there are lots of things I have seen here, you are all so talented that I would love to have. If there is anyone close to Ottumwa Iowa who would like to give quilting lessons I would be interested and maybe could get some others interested also! lol

    Sent my sp package off today! A pro-football hall of famer quarterback was born in your town. The population was 1,081 at the 2000 census. Tomorrow your weather would be a partly cloudy 65 degrees with a low of 48 in the morning.

    Lori, your grandchildren are adorable!

    Great packages coming in!
