    Not sure when I will be able to send. I am still waiting for items to arrive that I ordered. The hens, eggs and fish are adorable. BrendaK

    This is what we get for letting the post office raise the prices. I mailed two boxes and they are even on the same recipt. One to my SP and they said Monday and the other box to Harriet with 2 more quilts. They promised Sat. and it did not arrive. Now says it was delayed and is still in transit.

    Thank you, cuppy!

    Received a swap package from cuppy yesterday! Lovely dog and food themed fabrics, heart-shaped cookie cutters, adorable spatula and brush set. and a package of lavender seeds (my favorite flowering plant!). The seeds are already put away for spring. Cuppy's card features Sharpeis- I raised one from a puppy and had him for over 14 years!

    Many thanks,

    Deborah (Gaijin)

    Great packages coming in.

    On Sunday, I made a quilt top for my SIL's birthday. Quilt it tonight so it is ready for her tomorrow. She loves turquoise and burgundy.

    Have4boys, that quilt top is amazing!!

    SP CLUE: What comes before summer and after winter?
    NOTE: I wanted to grab some things from the internet and my order might come late which means I might end up mailing on the last possible date I'm sorry for the wait.
    on another note. I have been shopping online for fabrics and have not been sewing much these days. Since my gym session was canceled I decided to take out a pattern and trace it today ( have been sewing mostly knits/apparel lately) For anyone interested I will post photos below!! Also I have been itching to make a bag though and do more quilting! I am so afraid of zippers, they never come out good for me. I always mess up the ends. Can anyone relate?

    Very nice. I love the lemons one.

    Have you watched a Youtube tutorial for zippers?

    Thank you! I have watched some youtube videos and I have even taken a class when we made zipper pouches. I just can never do it the same at home. I should sit down one day and take my time to re learn

    Thank you! I did make them. I have been making clothes lately rather than quilting but I enjoy both so much!

    I am sure your Secret Pal won't mind once they know why it runs late.

    cuppy, Thank you I will check it out! Do you sew with wovens, knits both? I have been using from PDF pattern companies I like patterns for pirates the most. It's a little bit of a pain to buy online (with printing and extra tracing) but they have a lot of good resources and a great online community for support. I have gotten a few wovens in a mystery package, I'm afraid to use them!

    I recieved the most amazing box from Battleaxe. A large box stuffed with fabric, zippers, ribbon, a pattern, some cross stitch paper, ...did I mention fabric? I mean yards and yards! Oh yeah, and some yummy and healthy dog treats for little Ellie. Thanks so much Battleaxe, I love it all! I really did get spoiled this month!!

    You are welcome Pamela, I read over the bio and stuff just kept falling from the shelves of my stash into this BOX. I actually had to buy the dog treats. They came from Chewy in the same box as my kitty food. I called them and said it was a Bishon ???? and that is what they suggested. I guess 9 out of 10 Bishons agree those are tasty.

    Thank goodness the package I have waiting for came in today. So I'll sent my sp package tomorrow. I don't know if I will order from this company again. I ordered the things the day after I received her name and it just now got here. This is the second time this has happened. I do like their products but I don't like cutting it so close to the last day. I am just glad that it got here. So SP I'll let you know tomorrow when you can expect a package in the mail.

    Yippee!
    Received a big secret pal package today! Thank you Gaijin! I received some fun camper fabric. We just bought a new 2019 Class C RV, and I think this would make a great picnic table cover. Also received some yummy FQs in a bundle of teals, blues ,grays, my favorites. Japanese clover pins, insulbrite, fun socks, lavender soap, A chocolate bar, and some doggy treats for Bingbing, our sharpei. Deborah, also sent me a pic of her sharpei, just love it. Thank you so much, We were secret pals for each other. What fun, thank you again.

    Rachael, I can’t PM you to say thank you personally because I don’t know your screen name.... but hopefully you will read this... so Thank You so much for everything. I have never seen those rulers before so I will research them and give them a go. Thank you again for being my swap sender.

    Hugs

    Caroline
