    Just a note, most months I get the SP data and it's all scrunched (technical computer term there guys) together. So I copy the info to wordpad and then separate it into lines like it started out. Takes about 5 mins but it's soooo much easier to read!!!

    My SP this month has an embroidery machine, and I was wondering if she might be able to use an M bobbin, I accidently bought some instead of the smaller bobbins I use.

    On to the buying and packaging and shipping and finishing up the handmade thing if I can!
    YES why is it all together like that, it doesn't even have spaces between the words. VERY hard to read. I don't understand , it comes to us in list form and we fill it out and it comes back all run together ??????

    I found something special on my secret pals wish list - YEA!!!!!

    Every month I sign up for the swap I feel like I'm sending a "Dear Santa" letter but in our case it's a "Dear Secret Pal" letter - it's very easy to confuse the two as sometime throughout the month a package will arrive in the mail bringing with it all the magic and excitement of mystery wondering what is inside - just like Christmas morning waiting to open the package that Santa delivered to your house.

    Got my SP info - can't wait to put together a great package. I am currently in Colorado Springs visiting my parents and lots of quilt shops. Will definetely look for fabrics to include in her package. To the person sending a package to me....I will be back home Wednesday. DH is there to get mail but cannot always count on getting the message that a package came for me. Hope everyone is doing well. Must continue shopping!!

    Got my SPas well, cant wait to start packing. I think this is my third time. I have kept a tote in closet for years that I put stuff I find on clearance. You never know when you might need a last minute gift. This swap is perfect for this tote of mine. LOL anyway. Iv visited about half the states, and surprisingly, never been to the state she calls home. I do hope to get there some day.

    So My SP is really a long way from me but I have been to her State and I truly love it there! I have been sewing like a crazy quilter today, trying to get some projects finished.

    Lori, you are great and when I thought about what it takes to set things up, I'm guessing you have to use a spread sheet just to sort out this motley crue! Sorry if I was impatient, this is just about the most fun that I've had in a while.

    Joe-joe: don't know what is going on for you but I've been there and have managed to get past the rough spots over time. Hang tough and remember that you are stronger than you think.

    As for reformatting the SP info, I do that with each person so that I can highlight a few key ideas or wishes that I'm going to tackle, especially colors.

    I'm feeling very "piggy" since I went for more than one this time around and boy am I all over the map. I also made some new buddies happy on another board where they were seeking Harry Potter fabric which I had languishing in my stash. It feels good to pass along something that someone else so desperately wants and I won't ever use. Does anyone else sell stuff on here?

    I went to a quilt show yesterday and managed to lose my Sp printouts so I didn't find anything off their lists but I did see a really cool idea that I can make so my SP buddies will definitely be receiving something homemade and it won't be a glittered monkey or mini- manicure set which absolutely no one seems to want.

    and now the hints:

    One loves dark chocolate just like me, not sure how I can get it there intact because of the heat....
    One loves purple. Like swirls girlfriend?
    I had to place a special order to make one happy.
    One has a pet I've never owned but my son Noah has one named Bodega (rescued from the streets of Brooklyn)
    One does volunteer work in a place that is near and dear to my heart.
    One uses the same quilt patterns as me.
    One collects something I think of as rather practical but she must love having lots to choose from.

    and finally, one question to you all: Has anyone ever made wonky house blocks? Just to be an over achiever, I signed up for a block swap too and although my blocks aren't very crooked, they are kind of awesome (at least in my humble opinion). I still could use some help with improving there wonky-ness.

    Have a happy day everyone!

    there is a for sale section on this board. if you click on the 'home' tab you will find the thread and rules for saling. i believe the thread 'is members only thrift store and yard sale' and there is also a thread for 'items for sale'.

    and yes lori goes through a lot to keep this swap running smoothly. plus she has to deal with all of us

    Well I have signed up for this months swap and have received my sp info. Can't wait to get started on her package. Still have not gotten my sp package from May, guess it feel into the ocean. That makes it really hard to get motivated to do another one but I really do enjoy this swap.

    I hot the jack pot with my SP name.....I was given a HUGE box of fabrics a while ago...and now my sp will reap the benefit...and since it was given to me it does not count as part of the 10.00 right? Then i went through my stash to see what I had in there....and then she will be getting the one thing that she really wanted I had to go to Amazon to order it....none of the LQS's has it here...not even joann's so as soon as that one thing comes .... I will ship my SP box! I just hope that she likes what she gets!
