    Louise dear, I am so sorry to hear of another loss you are having to endure. It is never easy, and it takes all our strength. They are forever in your heart, and you were blessed to have them. My prayers are with you.

    Oh dear louise. I am so very sorry for your loss. I went though this ten years ago and it is a process to recover. Just be gentle with yourself and those around you. Try and take good care of yourself and remember the good times. They will always be there in your thoughts.

    I have decided that if I get names of people who said they liked my felt cushions I will send them the one they liked. I hope that is OK. I just also hope I don't get two people who liked the same one LOL

    Sorry for the delay. I have started swapping names for the pincushions. Still waiting on one in the pin cushion swap to finish her form. Hopefully I will get it by lunchtime tomorrow. My deadline to get your names to you is by 9pm CST.

    On a personal note, I am going to finish up my obligations that I have already signed up for; I will continue to host this swap as long as you girls want to play with me; and there is a small swap that I do enjoy swapping in but I will not be participating in any other swaps. I have had my feelings hurt and don't want that to happen again. DH tells me all the time that I wear my feelings on my sleeve and it is true. Never thought that someone would be so cruel.

    I would just ignore anyone immature enough to not care about other's feelings. If they act that way they don't belong on this board!! Remember most everyone here is supportive and care about each other. That's the purpose! We all appreciate what you do for us in setting up this swap, and get us together to form new friendships. Hope the hurtful person realizes that karma is a B*^%#

    Well, since you mentioned it Ireland - All of your pincushions were very cute! I especially loved the mushrooms. But I don't have any felt pincushions just yet. So when you get me as a partner (ahem!) I would love any of them!
    Seriously though - I love all the pincushions I have received so far.
    QuiltyLouise - so sorry for your loss. The picture of your mom and dad is so sweet. We will miss you this month!

    Tracey, I hope it wasn't someone in this swap who said something mean to you, but if they criticized how you run this swap they should be banned for life from the QB!! It's a lot of work to do what you do, and we all appreciate your efforts.

    Woo hoo, got my names and I am off to cut and sew! Decided on my summer theme pattern yesterday after searching for days.

    One partner is somewhere along the eastern seaboard, the other is almost as far away as she can be from the other. One is in a very small town, the other in a larger one. Added together, the zips total 94,364.

    Tracey, some people just are rude individuals! Do NOT let one person get to you. You have all of us and we sincerely appreciate all your work! This now is the only swap I participate in. It is always warm and welcoming. Everyone is fabulous! I am sorry you went through that. But ya know what... it is NOT YOUR job to live up to someone else's expectations. Soooo phbbbt to them! :-D

    AWESOME, I just got my names and I definitely get to give someone one of the cushions they mentioned in one of their replies. Nope... not gonna give hints will have to wait. It will go in the mail Friday. The second partner never mentioned anything so that one will get one made up for them after I do some stalking.... muhahahahaha

    just came back from the $ store to get my 'shipping containers'. they will be going out on Friday.
    Tracey, I'm so sorry that someone was mean to you. Mean people should be shot. Why is it that
    when someone is so nice, there's an equally mean person waiting to burst our bubble of cheerfulness.
    Why can't these mean people be mean to another mean person, then they'll know how we feel. big
    {{{{{{HUGS}}}}} to you, If they are so mean, they need to be deleted from our little group. Everyone
    here is so willing to give positive feedback. I love this swap, and feel that you,Tracy, give us your all, and
    for that, a big thanks.
    That being said, i'm off to start next months pc. can't wait to see what I get this swap!!!!!!!

    Lynnie, in theory that is good but is somone is mean, another person being nasty to them, it just rolls off their back, no social conscience.

    I just want to say to each of you, I consider you my online sisters. I enjoy logging in and catching up with you. I may not interact or comment on everything but I am listening and do want you to know I am loving getting to know you. On that note, thank you for you kind words of encouragement and outpouring of love. I really needed it. Guess I shouldn't have vented publicly, but it was eating me up inside and I knew that you girls would understand. Hugs to you all.

    lynnie - has next month's theme been posted yet?! LOL. How in the world do you get them finished so quickly? I have my PC's finished. First one looks really cute. Second one looks like junk. Have to re-do that one.

    Finished one today. I love it myself. But, I will be good and send it along to it's rightful owner. LOL... I just need to stuff the other one and get the mailing supplies to get them ready to mail off. You will be surprised swap partner at what it is. LOL .... I love this teasing part.

    Just remember that mean people get their reward eventually. Don't let one bad apple spoil it for everyone. There are always meanies around to try and hurt the nice ones. Stand up sister and smile. There are lots of us nice people around to lift you back up. My mother used to say, "Honey, Never give another person the power over your happiness in life."

    Got up early, finished my two cushions and will be heading to the P.O. in the morning. A small hint: I picked my favorite thing about summer, and no. it is NOT sun!! We get enough of that all year round. Couldn't figure out anything summery that would have gone with my partners' wish list but hope they will like what I made.

    On anolther note, I am really loving all the pincushions I have been seeing on this swap. They are so fun. So I am doing a pincushion swap at my quilting guild and we will do our first swap next month. Seems to have people interested, will see who brings in a cushion. I'm doing it that you bring in one or two cushions, and put your name in a jar for each cushion you brought in. At the break, I will draw names and you pick in order of having your name drawn.

    And a P.S. someone asked me in a PM about my avatar -- it is a tutorial I did on this board.

    Judy, I love your idea for your Guild. Wish my little town had one or that I was close enough to one. Think the closest is Paducah, KY. From Springfield, TN it's about a 2 hour drive one way. How does one start a Guild?

    Paintmejudy, we had the most fun at our guild retreat this year- everyone made or bought a nice pincushion, and then we took the classic "white elephant" gift exchange and called it "rob your quilter" - used left,center,right dice, and passed in the indicated direction, and whoever rolled center got to steal a pincushion. We had a ton of fun and everyone went home with a great cushion.

    Tracey, have no idea how to to this but I joined a guild with the AZ state's quilting society. Maybe your state quild could give you some info on how to start one. But a friend of mine in Oregon lives in a very small town and she is in a group that is informal, they meet once a month to quilt. Maybe that would work for you.

    Dragon, I was going to do the "steal" system but I don't know how many are really going to participate in this so going to keep it simple for right now. If it takes off, I may do a different way to swap/snatch each month.

    Mine are finished and ready to mail tomorrow. I won't show pictures because I have our hostess and I made one similar for quiltermomma. (Why spoil the surprise?) So please girls, post a pic when you receive it. I didn't take any knowing I couldn't post them. Enjoy! USPS Labels are all printed and ready to send them. My hubby got the biggest kick out of them.

    Now... I wonder who got me? LOL...
