    Judy,

    I am so sorry to hear about your daughter. Special thoughts for her and your
    family.


    Sorry if I have not been "talkative" much life is still on a slow pace and I am
    still trying to adjust to the fact that both my parents now gone. I keep waiting
    for my phone to ring and it being dad asking me "when are you coming by again"?


    My heart and special thoughts go out to anyone that is sick, not feeling well or has
    family members who are ill.



    On a side note for those of you who knows/remembers Mary "havplenty" I sent
    her an email a few days ago and she answered me. Told me to tell everyone she
    said HI and that she misses you and the swaps.
    Since she moved all her sewing stuff (machines and such) is still packed in storage
    so she hasn't been able to sew.

    She also misses doing the swaps.

    She is going to try and stop in here some day to say hi to everyone.

    Louise - Ya-ya to Zachary April 13 2015. I collect mugs from the U.S. and around the world. Also collect handmade pincushions, sewing/quilting themed fabrics, and fabric in general.

    Dear SP,
    I was out today with a friend and I got some fabrics in the colors that you like so I got them for ya. I'm trying to make a something that you collect but I'm dealing with several doctor appt. this week... but I'm trying really hard to get it done.

    There no pitter-patter of fuzzy feet in your household.
    You are really south of me and your zip code adds up to 13.
    You enjoy the same type books that I do.

    Sincerely,
    Tricia

    My package was mailed yesterday..should get there on Thursday. I made you something you asked for and I was not happy with the results. I promise another will be made soon and I will replace that one. Still running to Mom on a daily basis though I am not sure she even knows who I am..still she smiles when I get there.

    Just wanted to post a note that everyone that is sick, or has/had a loss you are all in my prayers. I have just gotten caught up on posts so I am a little late. Everyone is in my heart.
    Happy Quilting!

    Oh my...couldn't believe it...I got Painiac for a SP swap and, lo and behold, today I raced back to my car from the post office and ripped open my package as soon as the door slammed behind me and....it was from....Painiac!!!!! We were each others secret Pals. What fun! I will have to discribe the goodies because.....my printer's light is on, control panel says it's ready, can change the format.....IT JUST WON"T PRINT!!!! SO frustrating.
    1.) a Fern Michaels novel....Kentucky Rich
    2.) Hexagon Star Templates by Omnigrid.....love it! have the half hexi by MSQC but not the full size and this hexi
    is 3 1/2" so would be great for SO many things
    3.) the Spring copy of Quilts and More.........didn't have....YEAH!...now I do!
    4.) 4 flannel coasters
    5.) a scratch pad she made.....gotta' get the pattern
    6.) my most favorite in the whole world tea...EARL GRAY!!!
    7.) pattern by Country Threads for basket blocks of Log Cabins
    8.) patterns for Arrowhead quilt and Dragon Screen
    9.) 3 fat quarters
    10) 2 remnants, one pink plaid, one kelly green plaid and a few scraps......I applique
    11) ....and a partridge in a pear tree....NO, JUST KIDDING ABOUT THIS LAST ONE!!! :-)

    Thank you so much, Painiac!

    PaintmeJudy: My heart aches for you and your daughter. I can't begin to imagine how frustrated and helpless you must feel right now. Please know that there are so many of us sending our prayers and thoughts and best wishes your way. Praying you hear good news over the next few days.

    My overstuffed bubble pouch was sent out Tuesday to a relative new-comer (less than a year) to the Board and the swap. Hope you like what I sent. Your questionnaire was rather vague and your Board profile non-existent. Please, folks, try to put lots of info on Lori's questionnaire -- We want to learn more about you, what you like to do, where you live, etc. Getting tired of sending out the same generic things every month. This swap is about connecting with someone and making a new friend, not just getting and giving. We want to know more about you rather than just "yes" and "no" or "anything" answers. It's hard to connect with someone when the only thing you know is whether or not they smoke or prefer coffee over tea. Under the "extra info" it would be nice if you could say what kind of quilting you do, large or small projects, traditional or contemporary, avid quilter or just occasional, paper piecing?, string?, applique?scrap? Do you like to cook? Do comfort quilts or charity quilts? Make baby quilts? Dabble in totes and purses? Play tennis, golf, go boating, jog, swim, have grandkids you do projects with? Farm, raise livestock, bake, put up canned or preserves .... what do you do when you are not in front of the sewing machine? ANYTHING extra would be appreciated. Please??? (And, yeah, I've been in this swap since it started so yes, just sending and not getting to know a person better is boring when I'd rather send a more customized package and feel like I've touched someone's life a little.) Lori, once again you have my utmost respect for the way you handle what is probably one of the more difficult swaps. You've stuck by us thru sickness and in health. Thank you for your dedication, time, and skills in keeping things moving and people happy.
