    Sewdamncute is a jewel of a gal.

    Wow! I cannot believe how much was stuffed into that pre-paid!! Quilty-Louise sent the most fabric I've seen outside a quilt shop!
    Heaps of FQs, cuts, thread, clips, handcream, notebook, notelets, ripper, case and the most adorable hand crafted bookmark and tree ornaments - a very talented lady! I am thrilled to bits - thank you so much for your generosity.

    Knitette (Eileen),

    I am so happy that you liked what I sent to you. As you where the
    FIRST International (other than a letter) I was not sure what all I
    had to do. SO I went to the PO to talk to them about what/how to
    do a package. What was needed for the customs form etc. The postal
    worker told me I could use the flat rate padded envelope IF I kept the
    weight UNDER 4 pounds thus allowing me to just need to complete the
    "short form" for customs paperwork.


    Hope you enjoy your binding clips as much as I do. I sent them to several
    friends and so far I have not heard of any complaints about them. I just
    found out too that they came out with a larger size, so now that will be my
    next "goal" in finding them.

    Happy quilting!

    I received my package today from LaQuita. There were several pieces of fabric, a retractable kitty ruler marked in centimeters -- guess I need to brush up on metric measurements -- patterns, a lanyard, calendar, and other goodies. Thank you very much.

    Great packages!! I'm still waiting for mine, but my SP told me already it may be on the mule train.
    Which is fine, since I know it is on its way
    Everything important in my life, like naps, I learned from my dog.

I received some lovely fat quarters, binder clips, a small whisky flask key chain, a scotty dog key chain, the funniest coaster which reads "If ye belive in love at first sight, Look again when yer sober!", a recipe book, historical scotland playing cards, tea, a scottish treat which has already been eaten and enjoyed, some literature about her lovely city and a nice long letter giving me some history of Scotland and some details about her life in Scotland. Thanks a bunch Eileen, love it all! :-)

    I've just sent you a pm . I am an idiot. It wasn't until you mentioned about the cookbook that I realised - I addressed the parcels to the wrong SPs. You must have thought I'd lost it when I wrote about the dog hair bows for your large Labradoodle. the other SP has a tiny dog.......................

    She'll shortly be opening hers and wondering what planet I'm from, never mind country!!

    Humblest apologies Sylvia and I'm so glad you liked it anyway!

    Well, I finally joined the received group after waiting what seemed like an eternity - it really wasn't, but when you're waiting... Well, got a wonderful package from Cherrio. Seems she was also my table runner swap partner, so it included the table runner she had made for me. Made the wait even better to get two great things. My secret pal package encluded lots of embroidery things - my second hobby is surface embroidery/cross stitching, but don't always give it much. She send me patterns so I have something new to do. Some cute elephant fabric with elephant buttons, a candle, one of those fold-up bags that is about the size of a mug rug before you open it out and use it (then try to refold it, yuk,yuk), more embroidery patterns, a fabric bowl, notepad and pen, yarn, dry erase board, candy...picture is attached - also attached picture of my table runner so you can enjoy that too!!

    SP Package arrived this evening..........what a pleasant surprise

    I love learning about places where other folks live so the materials and wonderful long letter sharing about yourself and your country was the tops. As a young child I did all my traveling reading books and in the 21st century I do it by viewing the Discovery Channel on the Tellie as well as the internet.

    Now to hide the pair of socks from my ten year old granddaughter and also the wonderful treats/candies you sent. Yes it taste very good.

    Everything is wonderful and I will truly enjoy the teas you added.

    Now to figure a project to use the fabric on!

    Will also have to hide the pencil and magnet from my granddaughter. LOL

    Thank you again! You made my day.

    Box received SP

    Tammy B, thank you for the box I received today. Your note card was unique. I received a Washington state thimble and a Washington state mug, along with hot cocoa mix. There was also red valentine socks and green garden gloves which I may also use for quilting. Tammy made me a mug rug along with a red and a red and white mug rug. She also sent a package of Laura Ashley notecards and a ruler gripper. I loved the 2 packages of York peppermint patties, my favorite. I sure did enjoy these surprises.

    I received a wonderful box from VANOGAY!

    Last night I came home tired and cold. As I sat down to supper, my husband presented me with a box from VANOGAY.
    It was full of wonderful things! A special bag with many compartments for holding fabric and notions. It contained lovely fabrics, buttons, a souvenir spoon, and a special "Breast Cancer awareness" stick pin. I also received a book, Twizzlers, a measuring gauge, an embroidered panel (with an oriental scene), and a beautiful card!

    VANOGAY,
    Thank you so very much for your thoughtfulness!

    I didn't hear from mine for a few days, but she was sick. Lots of people have had the flu, so be patient.

    And speaking of being busy, I am drowning in a morass of post-Sandy paperwork with deadlines looming fast and furious -- so overwhelming! So if you haven't received a thank you note from me, it'll be there soon. Thank you to everyone.
