    Prayers go out to Louise. I got my partner, cut my fabric and hopefully it turns out lovely the first time and I don't have to try again. I am a still learning a lot but def wouldn't send anything that I wouldn't be proud to receive! Thanks for letting me participate and a big thanks to our hostess! I think people who say hurtful words should not be able to participate in public forums.

    mailed out my 2 partners pin cushions, you should have it by Monday. I'm hoping it arrives all in one place.
    one is going north of me, not to far, but still north.
    the other is going west of me, but not to far, because you're supposed to get it monday too.
    be on the lookout and I hope you can post a pic of it.
    I love having themes, it makes me stretch my mind and gather new patterns. and look on bing for new ideas.
    Who else loves the themes??

    I sure miss swapping this month with you all. I only have 1 swap that
    I am in and I had already signed up and received my partners name by
    the time my dad passed so I didn't want to back out of that swap.



    Yesterday was a bittersweet, painful and tough day, as it was the first
    holiday without my dad.
    I waited all day for my phone to ring with it being dad asking "What are
    your plans for today?". This would always end up being a call I received
    between 4am and 7am and more often than not I would still be asleep.


    I will TRY to join you again for August.

    Quilty-HUGS and love to you all and thank you for the kind words of
    love, sympathies and prayers for my family.


    Louise
    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.

    Are you kidding? It will be handmade, by you, for that person: they will LOVE it!! Handmade items are simply the best!

    I agree, this is my favorite swap. Didn't think that I would continue it past April but it was such a hit. Now that we have added a theme... We do have an awesome group of girls. I love getting to know you all. JuneBillie, where in TN are you? I am north of Nashville about 30 miles in Robertson County. Louise you are very missed this month but I understand why. When my Grandmother passed, I would wait for her phone call. She will be gone 4 years in Nov. and I still have the urge to call her.

    Yes - went postal today! Hmmm.... Clues, clues. Let me see.
    PC partner #1 will receive Tuesday. It is traveling far to the west.
    PC partner #2 will also receive Tuesday. It is traveling to the north.
    I know - those clues are very specific. LOL.

    Not feeling well. Spent the week end in the hospital with an upper respiratory infection. Not much sewing going here. Got the clear to go back to work tomorrow. Not sure how that will go, if I am not feeling any better I will be back at the Dr's office.

    Ha ha ha ... Isn't that a scream? It is a fig tree pattern I found at fatquartershop.com. I read on the pattern where she has a family history of eating radish sandwiches? Kinda sounds a little too hot for me. But, different strokes for different folks.

    I hope you get better quickly tracey. And I am so glad you like your pin cushion.

    Hi Ladies - thought I would let you know about an awesome opportunity if you have need of scissors. Just went on Amazon looking for some scissors for my needlecases. Lo and behold, I found a deal of my dreams, and there are 3 pair left! 4" GINGHER embroidery scissors for under $7 with shipping! Look for the amazon marketplace merchant Zipperstop! I will finish needlecases tomorrow, of all the things not to have, I don't have a button the right color to sew on to close it!

    Hoping you are feeling better. I hate hospitals but end up making about 5 trips a year for respiratory failure..Take care of yourself and don't rush back to work if you can afford to do so. Being in large groups of people when your system is weak can make you more apt to get sick again.
