    Darlene, that is simply gorgeous!

    Quiltnut, yes, doing somewhat better. We still have a long bureaucratic road ahead of us lined with endless paperwork tasks, but sooner or later it will get done.

    Wow great packages!!!

    As to Meadow and Christmas... I feel if he is an embarrassment to the family then that is their problem not mine, If they do not want to learn about him and know what that is totally their problem and not mine. I know what an AMAZING animal he is..and I am happy to have him!

    WHOOP!! WHOOP!! Hand pump, the whole nine yards!!! Great package received from Vicki W. Love love love all the fabric. The gold in that one makes it my fav, also the coffee themed, they are all just great. The chocolte will not last long. DH and I pigged out right after I took the picture. LOL The wallet is very nice, I've been thinking about getting one like it!! The furbaby pkg is great, I have never seen that before. And I have thumbed through the book. It is going to stay by my chair, even after I read it. I have had lots of problems with the value thing when picking out my fabrics for a quilt. Can't wait to read it. Then there is the candle and note pad. Just a great package to receive. And the day before my Birthday! Thank you thank you thank you. I love it all.

    I'm going to the PO today to send off my package. Clue number... 4? You like florals and had an abbreviation in something you liked, that I really hope I figured out right!

    Postage Rates Going Up
    The United States Postal Service has announced a major increase in international mail rates. All flat-rate envelopes are going up approximately $7. We're still researching the best way to ship to our valued customers around the world, but wanted to let you know that, unfortunately, you can expect a significant increase in shipping costs. Domestic rates will go up slightly, but we'll continue with a low, flat-rate within in the US. New prices go into effect January 27, so order soon to beat the price increases.

    I agree Segasal...Buslady I do love your tag line and have adopted it as my own. Segasal, I was sorry you and your family which includes your wonderful dog didn't come stay here. You would have been very welcome...sorry you have some creepy relatives but then, don't we all?

    I just check my tracking number from the postal service and package was delivered at 3:14 p.m. on Jan 16th, right on schedule from when it shipped out. You guessed correctly from my borderline clue.

    Hi, guys! It's been an interesting month here at the Greenini's. First I spilled a full glass of water into my aged, but beloved netbook, which killed about half the keyboard, so I couldn't communicate with anyone, including Lori to get in on the swap. Then DH got a bit of flu and thoughtfully passed it on to me. I proceeded to get SICK, I have a revved up autoimmune system and never get sick anymore, but I was even running a fever. And then DH had to semi rehabilitate an older netbook for me. Between dropping 'em and stepping on 'em and dropping water on 'em...sheesh. It's the curse of the Internet.

    So I think I'm back and will try to get in on next month's swap. Fun packages flying around the country....

    Clueless in Texas still. But I just checked and tomorrow is the last day to mail packages, so perhaps my SP is waiting until the last minute to keep me in suspense. OK -- I'll just be more patient. Hah!

    Would not let me load a picture, so here is a link to my secret pal package from Jazs2. It is an awesome package and had so many things I can use. I love the maesuring gauge and the creaser. The material is perfect for a quilt I am working on. Thank you!

    Just stopped in to catch up. Some really nice packages. Sorry to hear so many fighting the flu. Sending healing prayers out to all. Beautiful quilt Darlene-not surprised it won recognition. K~just think how well prepared you will be when you get ready to file papers for retirement. No one ever wants to learn to deal with bureacracy-not sure if I can even spell it. Hope it starts getting a little or rather a lot smoother really soon. One more long overtime day and the Yeah 3 day weekend!

    Woot, Woot, Happy Dance!

    Score! I received my package from Kristine (ada dabbler312)! Wow, she outdid herself shopping. Look at these goodies. Wrap-N-Zap with pattern to make a microwave cooking bag, EZ washout pencils, Slip 'N Grips, sweet needle threaders, seven aqua fat quarters, glass bell (to add to my bell collection) and Mr. Nutcracker (to add to my nutcracker collection). Oh, thank you so much Kristine. I love everything! This was my first time participating in this swap and it was fantastic!

    Well, I was more stressed and busy than I expected this month. I still have 1099's to get out before the end of the month, but the stress level decreased considerably this afternoon. I am very sorry to have not been "on board" this month and it's way too late to read everything and catch up now. I skimmed some of the pictures though and they were great.

    As usual, I saved my homework until Sunday night (or SP package until the last minute) and it will go out tomorrow. It will go Priority, though, so my pal won't have to wait too awfully long.

    Meanwhile I received my package from Trisha (Starshine). Thank you soooo, sew much. What a great end to my work day. She got me JUST what I wanted - Flower Templates from June Taylor. There was a wonderful magazine from 1990 - I have forgotten how good the quality was back then. It's on my weekend reading list. A couple of postcards of quilts for my postcard collection. She knows I like snowmen so there are snowmen shaped playing cards (I do play solitaire - reminds me of my grandma teaching me as a child) and a snowbaby who grows into a snowman when put in water. I also got the perfect kind of Rolos. Mini - bite size. Last week a few of us from work joined Weight Watchers and go to the meetings at lunchtime on Thursdays (today was my 2nd meeting). I lost 3.8 pounds this week, BUT, I don't want to deny myself of things I love, so I allow myself one piece of chocolate per day. These Rolos are "PERFECT". I get the taste and the satisfaction and they are not going to sabotage me. You can see by the photo that I also received a package of pink and lavender FQ's - my favorite colors. Thank you again, Trisha. I love my January SP package!!!!

    Sorry that is so large! It was one of my first quilts and it won a blue ribbon! It is still my favorite!
    I can see why it won. It's so cheerful and bright and makes you feel happy.

    What fun packages! My SP received hers and sent a lovely PM to say thank you. Like many, she has been sick. Keeping my fingers crossed that we don't get sick here, too. There's no time! Now to dive back into the paper work. Ugh. Uh oh. But not before I clean up the mess one of my dogs made. He was always such a good boy, but now he cannot resist the kitchen garbage.

    I got the BEST ever package from sewdawncute yesterday!!! I have never ever had someone who seemed to completely know ME by my list - she beat out all of my quilt guild secret quilters so far, and they know me in person! She sent me a large piece of snoopy fleece - she had no idea that is my favorite snoopy print, and I had one carefully hoarded fq of that in cotton, that I cut up to make my pincushion/scrap bag! She made be a lovely rainbow bag, with an extra rainbow applique. Hot chocolate, a rainbow lunch bag, lots of bright fabric, A 2013 block a day calendar, rainbow beads, milky way, purple slipper socks, Hershey's chocolate, toys for the cat and the dog - chester loves his little catnip pretzel, and Annie played fetch with her new air kong ball!
