    I agree that IS a cute zipper bag. Although I have not yet taken
    on the "task" of trying to sew a zipper into anything...... YET is
    the operative word there.

    Surely it can't be any harder (or maybe it can who am I to speak)
    then making button holes and sewing on buttons all with the machine.

    So excited (or anxious?) waiting to get my name LOL.

    Well I have some errands to run today, so while I am out thinking
    about hitting the WalMart that still has bolt fabric and getting some
    "fleece/felt type batting (which is what I use in Wall hangings.

    I use the "good" batting for quilts to cozy up under. While I am out
    going to see if Joann's is still running their "ironing board" fabric for
    $1 off regular price, if they are I will pass on buying any if not then
    I need to buy up SEVERAL yards because I am planning to "resurface"
    ALL of my ironing board this year (just don't ask "when" I will do that).

    But I can hardly wait for my name so that I can buy their goodies.

    Caio everyone until later.

    [QUOTE=clsurz;5827204]Please let's not start this again "people we don't know" and labeling them as deadbeats until they prove themselves as such. I experienced this on another swap recently being labeled as perhaps a deadbeat because a gal did not recognize me as being an avid swapper when I still had 19 days to send in my swap.

    I guess since 2 months in a row I've not gotten a package from my swap partner, it makes me wonder sometimes. I had to have an angel in Dec. and I am sure Lori has assigned one for Jan. Still waiting on Jan. package. I'm sure people wonder about me sometimes, but I have never failed to send my pal a package. I could have left that last sentence off my statement. I sure don't wont to offend new swappers. We were all new at one time.

    Hav4boys, I'm so sorry to hear about your son. I hope a good solution is found. Prayers going up for him.

    Fayzer, the community/groups was supposed to replace the old matrix that hostesses kept track on. I mistakenly thought that we could have group discussions there and upload pix since those were options, but was recently told that's not the place for it. Ooops!

    TooManyUFOs, I'm so glad that all is well with your daughter.

    Tracy, that tornado looked scary. We had high winds at the apartment complex and it wasn't scary until I looked out the window in the morning and saw that huge chunks of the slate roof had crashed to the pavement below. I decided to stay home that day.

    Tricia, prayers for you and your husband. I hope all turns out well. More prayers going up!

    AntiqueGirl68 PM Lori. It might not be too late.

    Nice bag, Louise!
    Krystyna
    Feel the fear and do it anyway!

    I have a special surprise for someone who is NOT my SP
    (at least not that I know of yet).

    I will NOT give any names YET, but they will know who they
    are once they get the mail next week (latter part of the week).

    They live East of Colorado but how far East I won't say I will
    tell you who it ISN'T (looks at Teresa mscupid), as she is already
    getting mail next week from me (an quilt I designed for pattern).

    So everyone if you KNOW that I have your address be on the look
    out for a little surprise from me. I just hope you like it.

    Hi All -

    I just felt the need to tell you what an amazing group of ladies you are. I haven't known you long, but I feel right at home. I realize that I need to actually SAY it, not just think it.

    This epiphany was brought about, unfortunately, by the loss of one of my quilt guild members. She was with us all weekend at retreat, and by Tuesday, she was gone We were all sitting in the funeral home tonight, and we all made a point to tell each other that. I hadn't seen many of her quilts since I am relatively new (3 1/2 yes) to the guild, so it was nice to see them - the family had put up quilt stands with about 10 or so of her quilts, and her exploding star quilt was on the casket, under the flowers. That idea is going in my list of thing for hopefully far in the future. But I just felt the need to say thanks for being so welcoming to me when I was new, and that I am really enjoying talking to all of you here on the board!

    I agree with about this being a great group.

    On another note I got my name and she is wayyyyyyy south of me.
    But still in the United States.

    hav4boys glad you had some good news, I'll continue to keep Adam in my prayers. And for everyone on here that is in need of prayer. Including you quiltingdragon, I'll be saying some prayers for you and your guild members. We do periodically get that reminder that life has unexpected turns. Carpe diem cause you never know whether there will be a tomorrow -make each day count, or at least be the best you could for the day.

    Cute bags Quilty Louise and Knitette! I have yet to make a bag, but it is on my bucket list.
    Pot roast sounds really good -think I'll make it tomorrow night. Tues. & Wed. we had high temps of 60 + today it was 15, tomorrow the first of 5 Alberta Clippers. I wish I could hibernate all winter. Maybe not all winter but just the freezing days. Ok a couple of months age we had some gloves being swap so quiltnut get your gloves out sounds like you'll need them.

    Got my names so may as well start on the clues;

    Both live in the US
    One of my Pals sent to my other Pal last month.
    They have the same initial.
    One has posted on this thread recently - the other hasn't.

    Hooray! I'm finally going to be able to give at least one of my SPs exactly what she wants the most! Usually quite difficult as there's only one LQS here (and the UK is a bit of a stranger to the concept of 'Free Shipping' if you order from the internet). Should be able to get these posted Monday or Tuesday.

    Can't wait to make something for my SP. She lives south of me. Bet her weather is much, much nicer than what we are having in Illinois.
