    Quiltingdragon, grab an extension cord and bring your machine to the bench. The rest of us will keep you company while you stitch. Oh and some bug spray would be good, too.

    Is anyone else having an unusual high pollen season? Maybe it's just because we lived by the sea with hardly any trees and a constant breeze, but living in the apartment I am horrified at all the pollen. The streets and cars are florescent green. And even my TV table which is next to the window -- yikes -- I thought it was dust -- and a lot of it until I noticed it was green!

    Thanks Krystyna it is great to be rid of those so quickly. lol
    Happy Quilting!

    for the first time in my life I found out pine trees have pollen??? yellow clouds blowing across the field, enough to actually see the stuff. I thought the barn was on fire but it was clouds of pollen blowing...weird...we can always be surprised can't we????

    Morning all. I hope that those that are on the bench will receive their pkgs today. It is unfair to not receive something from someone who signed up with intentions of following through. I understand that there are circumstances that impede...that's when one needs to notify Lori ASAP. I've been on the bench a few times and the SP Angels come through but it isn't fair to those who do participate and follow through the rules only to be waiting and waiting. SO if anyone will be signing up for the June SP PLEASE follow the rules. I may not be joining next months due to medical issues that have arised for myself but I can only hope and pray that those who do join follow through. I know many here have made the point to follow the rules and I thank you so much! LORI YOU'RE DOING A GREAT JOB!

    Well, the mailman came and no package today. I am still on the bench. The part that makes me upset is that I mail my packages within a few days after I receive names. And I always mail before the 15th. I have been on the bench many times and it is not fun.

    That stinks that you are still on the bench and everyone else that is with you on the bench. If you sign up we all need to follow the rules that are laid out. I wonder if those that are late are always late. I have only been involved for a few months, and and thinking about not joining again due to the on going problems of packages being delivered on time.

    I know at times life gets in the way, but you still have a responsibility to at least let the hostess of the swap know what is going on.

    I'm sorry ssnare. This is so unfair to folks wanting to enjoy this swap.

    Cindy I hope you won't let a few bad apples keep you from playing along. The majority of the packages are really shipped on time. I have received packages that arrived a little late (either after touring the country or being shipped late), and I have had a partner disappear and received an angel package but mostly it works out fine.

    I have already signed up for June. I am not ready to call it quits just yet.

    Good for you. We need to keep the ones that play fair. It's really not hard to follow a few simple rules. I just don't understand it.To me it's just as up setting not to know when my partner recieved their swap as it is to not get a swap myself.Maybe more. I gotta say this is a very fun swap. Thanks to Miss Lori and all the ones that play fair. Everyone have a good week. Mary

    Couldn't agree more. As you know I can't track my parcels, but so far everything I've sent has arrived safely apart from the February partner. She disappeared not only from the swap, but from the board too! I emailed her but never got a reply....... A mystery indeed.

    Hello everbody! I didn't get to come hang out on the bench this weekend as much as I would like. Friday, my Dad called and asked me for my social security number. He had been cleared for light activity, but Mom wouldn't let him go alone. I hadn't been fishing since my 7th grade class trip, so it was an adventure. I managed to catch a small catfish. I've spent the last two days frantically cleaning my sewing stuff, as i'm moving my machine into my room for awhile until we get the basement worked on, and cutting squares for the charming addiction swap - I didn't do the math that 30 sets was 1500 squares I had to cut! So i'm trying to get that out in the mail and a handmade item made for my June package - I bought some sewing themed fabric, I think anyone should like those! How is everyone? I have missed hanging out on the board with you ladies. I'll try to check in tomorrow while i'm still off work, but if not, i'll talk to you all when my package gets here!

    I signed up for June, even though I have not received a May package. I know there are good people out that sign up for this swap.

    That really stinks! I hope the partners you bench sitters get in June mail you great packages and ON TIME! We all know and run into extenuating circumstances but when that happens just notify Lori. I totally agree it is disheartening when you mail your package and you don't ever get a PM. Makes me wonder where that person came from that they can't take a few seconds to say the package arrived and "thank you"....end of lecture! I signed up for June!

    Being that I was on vacation this month I didn't sign up for fear that I couldn't mail on time. Now I'm debating if I want to sign up again, seems as though things haven't changed very much. ssnare we are usually sitting right on that bench together, it sucks truthfully. I think I must have been wrong or taught wrong my whole life, always told if you say you will do something make sure you do it. It's your word and that is the most important thing you will ever be able to give someone. Taught my kids that too. I'll get off the lecture podium too luvstoquilt, but I truly do not understand this. Kind of makes you wonder doesn't it?

    I am still waiting, but my partner mailed hers almost 3 weeks ago. Maybe the post office sent the package via scenic tour?

    I got one, still waiting on the other with no word from my partner, or from Lori that my partner let her know. I wouldn't mind getting it late at all, I know things happen and have had to ask for a lot of grace myself lately as things have been crazy, but wish they'd let me or Lori know. Oh, well, maybe tomorrow.

    I've got to think about this. I am so over-committed right now with house stuff, but I know I'll really miss it if I don't, bench sitting or not. Hmmmm.
