    Hmmmm. MY SP has more than one pet (does than narrow it down)

    Okay, this may help. My SP lives in a state that passed a law allowing women to vote before the national suffrage act was passed.

    I thought long and hard about a hint and came up with this -- my SP lives east of the Mississippi! There, that narrows it down. (not really)!

    By the way, there are 10 states that passed the Women's Suffrage Act before it became the 19th Amendment to the US Constitution in 1920. Thanks for the history lesson!

    I am finally feeling better. I am one-armed at the moment but doing better. Monday I see the ortho doctor to determine if I will need surgery on my shoulder. I managed to fracture the scapula right around the socket.

    Hope all is well.

    Hav4boys, glad to hear you are feeling better! Don't try to do too much - I give you permission to take it easy for the rest of the week, lol.

    I received an Amazing box from Cheri Jacobson yesterday. (I have spent time today trying to look up her name under the members list but can’t find her). I’ve sent have4boys a PM, but I thought while I was waiting I would post here.
    I got a box of goodies for myself and our “girls”. They live the treats and new toys. They are like kids, fighting over the toys! It’s funny to watch. Thank you for thinking of them.

    I live the snowman kit and other pattern you sent. The wallet is just beautiful! I have never seen a wallet that looks so professionally done. As well as the pouches. Our girls say I am a “bag lady” so you made a hit with the ones you sent!
    I appreciate the magazines, spent last night looking through them, the candy will be enjoyed later on. You sent so many great things, oh the socks with sewing motifs are precious. My feet get cold, so I will be wearing them out!

    I love everything you sent, I’m sure I’m forgetting something, if you took a picture, please feel free to post it. I haven’t learned how to do that from my IPad.

    Thank you again Cheri. Happy Quilting everyone!!

    Cuppy thank you for the lovely package. I have not seen metal labels for quilts before. All the fabrics are wonderful. Especially the leaf fabric.

    Wow! Opened my last package today. Here are my goodies: my favorite tea, a triangle ruler for a current project and a variety of black and white fabrics in yardage to be worked into my b/w quilts. Thank you so much Queenbarbiej.

    Lovely package from Miz Melly!

    I received a wonderful package from Miz Melly today. She sent me a large bag of selvages that she cut, as my most wanted item. I use them to make zippered selvage pouches. She also sent me cutter blades, a wonderful baggage tag, a beautiful mug rug, a marking pencil, scentless laundry wash, a set of round plastic templates, lovely cherry fabrics, and a sweet card!

    Many, many thanks!

    Hi Guys,

    To my Secret Pal..... I have mailed your package and I just found the note that I should have popped in with it. So, when you receive a package from England without a note.... please know that.... I did write a note, that I hope you like what I have sent you and that I am not rude... just forgetful - LOL LOL LOL.

    Hugs

    The order I placed when I received my SP's name came in today. That's the good news, the bad news is that I didn't received what I ordered. So, SP you will receive a small package one day, hopefully not too much later I will be able to send the rest of your package. BrendaK

    My secret pal's state was the starting point of the famed Pony Express. This state is the only state in the U.S. with a cave restaurant.

    My package is one its way. It should be there Wednesday. It was like arranging a puzzle to get everything in.

    Secret Pal, I mailed your package today, but I forgot to put the note I wrote to you in it (again! �� ) Sorry about that, but I hope you like what I sent.
