    Well, my SP received her package yesterday morning at 9:12 am.....31 hours ago. Haven't heard anything. Maybe she didn't get it? Should I post pics of what I sent and to whom? This is my first swap so I hope I didn't totally flop with what I sent.

    Sometimes it takes a couple days for someone to post they recieved it. Maybe you can post tomorrow if they don't.I for one like to see what's sent.

    I saw a couple of people are on vacation, maybe she is one who is out of town at the moment and it was picked up by a neighbor. Never can tell. Be patient and let them reveal themselves.

    Got my package from Liza 63.. a really nice package, the seam ripper is perfect just threw one away that I was using at my cutting table and the back end of that can be used to rub the threads away from where you have ripped..... love the tablet holder and the FQ's are just the right colors... The pins are just what I needed...

    All of the fabrics in the pic, except one I believe, are FQ's from Joannes. The small strip of purple in the Mug Rug is a FQ I used from a previous SP's package . The bag clips I bought at Target, in their dollar section. Aren't they cute?

    Wonderful pkgs everyone! Such a cute apron! Finally finished cleaning and making my sewing room (MY) sewing room. The closet was full of Grandkids toys and games and anything else nobody knew where to put. You can actually walk in there and see all my goodies. I'm actually sick of comic book boards! LOL! So SP you pkg will be in the mail to you tomorrow. It's going north, and has some blue fabric in it along with a few other goodies that I think you will like. Everyone have a great night!

    Thank you very much Pat you your thoughrfulness in putting my package together.

    Glad you liked your package. Tried to get various items for you. Enjoy!

    I just love all the pictures of the packages. So many items I see I would love to have too. So many talented people in this swap. I am patiently waiting on my package. Hasn't made it to my porch yet. I think I will have a glass of ice tea while I wait.
    Happy Quilting!

    What wonderful news! A new baby GS, no glasses...sorry about the headache and hope it is all gone now! Will you get to keep the dog if you can see? I hope you can. Thrilled about your graduation!!! I know how hard that must have been for you. Best of luck with your next surgery...so happy to hear from you!

    Most stressful part of the swap for me - y'all know I can't track my parcels.

    I'm grateful if swappers just pm to say 'It's arrived - I'll thank you properly later' (even if they don't, lol).
    Lang may yer lum reek. (I'm a knitter - hence - 'Knit-ette'. Confuses a lot of people!)

    Hi all! Hope you're having a good Saturday! SP mailed your pkg today and you should receive it on Monday! Hint - it's going North, it has some things that are Blue, and your zip code adds up to 23, the normal way. LOL!
    So excited my Son and his family are on their way from Ohio, will be here for over a week. Got some great news, he graduated in May and took his state boards today for his paramedic license and he PASSED! So proud of him!! Our 6 yr. Granddaughter is staying with us for the summer, my DIL is in the Air Force and she is deploying for 3 mths. Our youngest grandson who is 9 months is staying with dad so he doesn't lose his spot in daycare. Hope ya'll have a great Father's Day with your families!

    I'm back from holiday. Great packages appear to be arriving. I'll know tomorrow if one is mine as I had the mail held until then.
    I know one I sent was received and acknowledged by Cogito, and since the other is heading North into Canada, I doubt it is there yet.
