    I received a wonderful package today from Guzlivz. I don't know how she had time to make me the love mug rug with all of her preparation for the new little one. It's it lovely. She sent me two patterns, a love piece of fabric, a Casting Crowns CD, some vintage handerkechiefs, a part of snips, nail files, tweezers. I hope I didn't miss anything. thank you again GuzlivzName:  DSCN0281.JPG

    I'm still on the bench too, tracibug. I doubt mine will ever come. It's probably one of those who sign up and not follow through.

    I'm still on the bench too. According to list my SP mailed mine on the 15th of Feb. It must be taking the long way around. I'm sure it will come when I least expect it. I'm glad it's a little warmer out today in the high 60's, weather is suppose to hit into the 80's by Friday we'll see.

    Oh, I hope not. But if that is the case, I know there will be an Angel waiting in the wings. (Bad pun)

    Yes, I know there are Angels out there (as I have sent out Angel packages several times before) but somehow it's just not fair for someone to send out an Angel package when the person who signed up received a package and didn't follow through with theirs. It's just disappointing, that's all. In my and tracibug's case, I noticed Lori had "????" next to our names and not that packages were mailed out. I guess that's the risk we take when we sign up and have to trust that whoever gets our name follows through.

    Well, it's not coming from Scotland, I'm afraid. That said, one of mine seems to have disappeared into the mist, although I've now emailed the recipient to see if it did actually arrive, so waiting to hear back.

    I heard from my SP last night that her mailing was late and her tracking says it should arrive on Thursday or Friday. I was very glad to hear from her and due to her PM, I can be patient to wait longer. I think that when the Swap package is this late in the game, it's a good idea to let your partner know. I know that I am more than willing to wait now that I've heard from her.

    I'm just glad to hear from my SP more than anything. It certainly makes the waiting so much easier. Hope tracibug and pbadder hear from theirs.

    I always say that someone has to come in last and I am secure enough to have it be me. I'll take February for the team, ladies!!

    Hoping nothing tragic happened to my partner as I do understand how life happens and foil our best intentions.

    I can tell two of you that are on the bench that your packages will be arriving on Thursday....they were mailed in flat rate envelopes that needed taped up to close....they were sent back and I was told that they must close flat without being taped up or you will not be allowed to pay the flat rate....had to repackage in flat rate bubble envelopes which actually hold more anyway...so there is one on the way again to CA and OH.....

    Bah! What postal bunk is this?!?

    I get flat rates in all shapes and sizes, someone there just has to ruin it for us creative types.

    So sorry you had to deal with the reship.

    I found a way around the tape issue -- position your label sideways and then since you have to put tape on it to keep it on the label, you can let it overlap the flap!

    I put tape on the flat rate bubble envelopes and the flat envelopes all the time with no problem at all. Guess it depends on who sees it at the post office.

    I received a wonderful surprise from my swap partner in Japan. GiiJin, I think that is right,. She was actually who I sent a package to this month. She returned a package to me with a very lovely pc of "Made in Japan" fabric and a lovely note. I am hoping this is the beginning of a great friendship. Thank you Deborah!!!

    Hope-

    The package came today, thank you so much. I've already found a pattern in one of the magazines I want to try out soon!! The fabrics and ribbons will surely go to good use, especially the sock monkeys!!!

    The mug rug is in my bag to go to work. Now I have 3 of them so i can rotate them.

    Im off to bed, lots of extra hours at work lately. I'll try to post a pic tmrw. Thank you again. :-)
