    To my MR partner. Your package was sent last week. I hope you get it soon. Please let me know when you get it. I hope you like it. This is my first attempt at trying to quilt other than SID. I'm sorry it was so late.

    If your pic is too big, that can sometimes cause this. Try shrinking the file size to below 600 megapixels. One of the programs that's easy to do this with, that is also free, is Picasa. You might also try posting a photo in an album on your profile, then posting a link here once you have the file size resolved. It's worth a try anyway.

    Hello Argentium! I received your BEAUTIFUL mug rugs & treats: chocolate, tea, coffee, decor pins, bling and card. So worth the daily walk to my postbox! Thank-you, thank-you! Your quilting is inspirational.

    Well Wednesday has come and gone.. did you hear from everyone Nelco? did you call on all your angels? Love the rainbow mug rug very cool idea. Are we supposed to be sending all the extra goodies that i am seeing here or is it a mug rug swap? I never join the secret pal swap because of the competition to send the biggest best box it overwhelms me as that obviously went on the 10.00 wayside to anything goes. While its nice to see all the pretty treats it feels like a bit of pressure to add to your package or disappoint your recipient. I hope it doesn't go that way. A simple swap is also very nice especially if your on a limited income (ie me).

    I am glad you liked your bunnies Mary. I had fun making them and so humbled by your work that I wish i could hide mine behind my back! I wonder what next months theme will be. BTW i find some are so pretty you just have to hang them and dont you dare put a mug on that. Kind of like little framed pieces of art. I had a very lucky month with my mug rugs. Thanks for running the swap again Nelco. Great job for so little pay

    Here today... why what a lucky bunch we are.

    This is a mug rug swap if you choose to send more it is totally up you the sender but not a requirement.

    Hey brat...you read my mind. I got extras and gave extras, but always feel like i have to. Sometimes a simple swap is best. Dont get me wrong, i love goodies, but sometimes postage gets totally out of hands.
    nelco, thank you so much for hosting this swap.you did great for your first swap.

    I am just happy to receive a mug rug. I never feel obligated to send anything else but what I signed up for but do when I if I feel like it. I never expect anything extras in return. Just to have fun.

    I never EXPECT to receive anything extra in any swap I do.

    But I DO try to send a little something extra if for no other
    reason than to put a bigger smile of the receivers face when
    they open it.

    So just know that if you ever get me and you do not include
    an extra goodies I am perfectly ok with that as I did not expect
    to get anything extra.

    I just love swapping and making friends.


    Nelco,
    thank you for being a great hostess.

    i agree about a simple swap. everyone likes goodies i'm sure, but this may not actually be the place for them. i'll send a little something once in awhile, but i'm usually so happy to be finished on time, and packing it and getting it mailed, that i forget to add a little something. i never expect anything extra, and i'm perfectly happy with that, too. i do like the little notes people often enclose. i am trying to follow that example! extras do add up and i think most of us are on a fixed or limited budget and feeling the stress of having to keep up with the joneses takes away from the fun of the swap. no one asked, but that's my opinion, and it's worth every cent you paid for it, too!!
    The only bad days are the ones you don't get.

    I plan to put something in with my packages, but the first swap I just couldn't wait for her to see it once I decided to ship (after I was irritated the quilting didn't turn out just how I wanted it), and I left the closing & shipping of the 2nd package to my son & he still hasn't told me what he put in (I told him to get some kind of Valentine's day candy though.)

    Since I ended up with 6 spools of white thread from Denmark that I really like, I think I'm going to share one of them with Nancia when I send her runner. Oh, and if any of my swap buddies loves micro-scraps, let me know. I've been keeping a bucket by the sewing table & will happily share. Otherwise, they may turn into mug rugs for unsuspecting people, lol.

    Keeping up with the Joneses mostly leads to dissatisfaction As a first time swapper, I did not feel pressure to add any extras but I did send a vintage thrifty find! Never felt that was expected though - just a great swap all round! Thx again.

    ok didnt mean to start a fire there lol. I just was feeling the pressure last few times and this month especially feels like its Christmas.. where is all the money going??? gone fling right out the window it appears because it is not in my checking account. birthdays, holidays always make it a bit tight. sorry if my issues here came out of my mouth plop onto the board in a random way. I don't want to hurt anyones feelings. sheesh last thing I would want to do.

    as to the rugs did they all go home? how many did not receive yet? at this point waiting around for senders unless they say they are sending is silly. Whats the score dear woman? so sorry about your cold. I had to take an hour drive to the clinic yesterday. My driver says cant touch anything (she normally opens the car door) because she is seriously down with a massive head cold. GET ME OUTTA THE CAR!! HELPPPP shoot she locked the doors.. ahhh. does she wear a mask? no. she said she woke up with it which means this was her lucky 24 hour most contagious period. no colds allowed is my motto. for anyone. I eat that apple every morning and evening. I sure hope it works. maybe I need three today?

    Here today... why what a lucky bunch we are.
