    Received my wonderful SP package today!

    I received my lovely package today from catpawski (Sandy). She stuffed that envelope till it was near bursting. I love everything she sent, thanks Sandy! I got some lovely fall color fabric, a simplicity pattern for sewing accessories, some Mary Engelbreit note cards, a purple sparkly pen, row marking safety pins, a pattern for a whirligig quilt, the cutest owl plastic pouch with matching post it notes, some quilt labels, Angel stickers, cute eraser and a large flower paper clip. I'm a happy girl :-)

    Hoe to get to go home tomorrow. I have been in the hospital since Sunday evening. Felt really bad when i woke up and it just got worse so I flipped a coin...call Marty .... call 911. Called Marty I didn't think I could walk down to my car and put the walker in the back. Called Marty and worn a mask, in my defense I DID offer to call 911 and she wouldn't hear of it. A flair up of COPD, nothing bad. Such lovely packages I have been seeing! Keep it up. I have 11 who have not mailed yet and 26 who have not received yet.

    I hope you're better soon Lori.

    My parcels will be two of the ones that haven't been received yet . I posted them on the 4th and they still haven't got there. I'm getting worried as mine arrived in a week from US - usually it's the other way around .

    We have 'Proof of Posting' here - it's a receipt with the address of where it's going, which proves you posted, but doesn't provide tracking. Not much comfort if your pal doesn't get her parcel though! If they haven't turned up by Saturday I'm going to pm my pals and resend next week. Fingers crossed!!!!
    Lang may yer lum reek. (I'm a knitter - hence - 'Knit-ette'. Confuses a lot of people!)

    Here are the great items I received from LaQuita. Love the needle case, pink bunny, needles, pins, needle threaders, fabrics, scrapbooking stickers, scrapbooking templete for journaling, This & That quilt pattern and storage box. She also wrote a nice note. The buttons on the needle case are so cute. I did not have a needle case, now I do!! I will put everything to good use. Thank you!!!

    Lori - I hope you get better fast. You have been ill a lot lately - don't let it get you down.
    Sharon - I'm happy you liked the items I sent. It was fun trying to find things that you wanted and/or in your colours.
    clsurz - I love the group therapy tag! I think we all need something like that at times.

    My package from tracibug is almost like yours except my bag is
    a little different and so is my fabric.

    I just love the mug rug she made us, so cute. Will have to make
    sure my oldest daughter doesn't see my bag or mug rug because
    she might try to make off with them.

    tracibug, THANK YOU again for my Feb. SP package.

    I will post pictures this evening when I get home from work. Just
    FINALLY found a program to use on my NEW computer to resize
    pictures.

    I do know that getting used to Windows 8 is going to be job that
    will take time, but so far I like it.

    Lori -- You poor thing, wish I was there to help you and Marty out. I hope the weather clears up and gets warmer soon -- I'm sure that will help. Please rest and take care of yourself.

    I love those patterns for the purses with all the ruffles -- will have to look for that one. Granddaughters would like those.

    It's been overcast, windy, and drizzly here lately. Just want to (yawn, stretch) go back to bed and read. Very hard to get motivated to do anything, especially when there are 3 dogs just waiting for me to lay down so they can hog the blanket. Still waiting for my pkg, too. Just think how bad its going to be when the PO stops Saturday deliveries and combine that with Monday holidays. Everything will be late.

    Not SP related but fabric related....

    This question is not related to the SP swap, but it is questions
    about fabric.

    MANY months ago (late summer I believe) one of the "regular"
    monthly swappers (maybe even more then one person) made
    mention that they used/wanted the following fabric "scraps" but
    for the life of me I do not remember who they are.

    Below is some of the information I had written down, but no names
    to go with the notes (bad Louise).

    String scraps (anything LESS than 1/2") was used in a "preschool",
    kindergarden, or young children's classes for "art" projects.

    Selvages of various lengths.

    2-1/2" wide of various lengths pieces all SHORTER then 12-18"
    I am starting to get "over loaded" in 1 gallon and 2-1/2 gallon
    bags of these, need to start getting rid of them I guess.

    Before anyone says it NO I am not "into" making scrap quilts
    and have no plans to use these scraps.

    Just curious if anyone remembers who wanted the string scraps
    and selvages though.

    I have to brag about the super package I received from sewdamncute, I even recycled the tissue paper, it was so pretty. A lovely collection of pinks, 2 beautiful tea towels in blue & yellow. (too nice to use on dishes). I have a book to read, embroidery thread, a transfer pen, a table runner pattern, so many nice things. Thank you again, Darlene.
