    Wow!

    Thank you Pamela for all the goodies. 4 patriotic fat quarters, yardage of amazing paisley fabric and tone on tone creme Moda fabric, a template and floating hexagon pattern, the cutest little scissor, "Quilters make good covers" button, and an amazing Flag wallhanging/table topper. Most of it patriotic. Just my theme! Thank you. It looks like I got the beginnings of a quilt or wall hanging here.

    I sent my SP's package out today and once again I forgot to put a note in with it. I hope my SP will enjoy the goodies I chose for her. If there is anything she can't use or just doesn't want, I hope she will feel free to send it on to someone else who might like it. And, of course, I wish her a very happy, healthy, and prosperous new year.

    Thanks so much Tumrub, I got the package today in the mail. What a lovely selection!! It's all great. Of course the cats wanted to sample the kitty treats first thing. Your DH woodworking is very nice. I'll probably paint it. I needed needle threaders. Thanks so much.

    Mary Christine-------I had your sweet package waiting for me when we brought our daughter 29 yo) home from the hospital today. The package was greT! Had several different kinds of teal fabrics (my fav color) a magazine, a fictional book pertaining yo Quilting (I have not read this one either) �� A quilt happy booklet of assorted stickies, a quilts sponge for all those threads, a crocheted dish towel a pattern for a table runner and the cutest tape measure as well as a bendable helping hand. I loved it all, THANK YOU SO MUCH (if you have a picture p,ease feel free to post it.)

    Regarding our daughter, She was scheduled for her 9th shunt placement in her brain. She has IH (aka hydrocephalus) This one was placed in a different spot further towards the middle of her right side right above her ear. Usually we are in one day and out the next. Well, this time there were complications, we couldn't get her to wake up after the first surgery at 7:00am. No amount of physical stimulation would arouse her. Dr went back into her brain a 2nd time about 2:00pm. She was then placed in ICU, by now she's been non responsored for over 14 hours. Sometime late in the evening she started coming around. For this we were praising the Lord! She has spent 4 days in the hospital and will be in extensive rehab for a while. Her left side was greatly affected. She is unable to dress her self, feed herself, walk by herself, but she can talk, and she can walk with the assistance of a walker with arm supports/rests. Please pray for her / us during time of recovery. Thank you all!!!! BTW; her name is Shea pronounced like Shae.
    LaQuita (aka) - Yai-Yai to the most precious grandbaby around of course I'm partial! LOL

    HAPPY QUILTING!

    My apologies to my partner. Your package will go out tomorrow. I normally don't like to wait for this late to mail but with health issues it couldn't be helped. At least it's within the timeframe. Hope you like what you receive as I wasn't sure what to send. I do wish you a very Happy, Healthy, and Prosperous New Year. BrendaK

    My secret pal package went out today too. Not sure what I was waiting for. If I was waiting for something, it did not come so the package went out today. It is headed to someone whose name comes from Old Nordic and means torch or sword.
