    I'm back from Michigan tonight, was excited to check my mail box but still nothing of a MR. It's ok, I'm going quit looking. Sandy sent me one out of RAK, that was sweet of her and thats good enough for me. Loved the swap though. Mine that I sent my butterflys and chocolate MRs to didn't say if she liked them or what, just that she recieved them. I was affraid she wouldn't like them. It's ok I did get a couple of comliments from a few folks. Good enough for me. I seriously don't know if I'll do the next swap though. I may think I'll be moving about that time.

    wow, momma, moving is kind of extreme to get out of a mug rug swap! i just hate it when people don't carry through. i know life happens, but at some point they should be able to find a moment to communicate what's happening. jmho. it does seem to happen to someone in every swap. it's too bad!

    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.

    Bless your heart! I feel better after reading your post, thank you! But not moving because of the swap, yep, a touch extreme for that but I seriously may be moving soon, the house I'm renting now may be sold soon and of course the new owner would raise the rent and right now $600.00 is just the right amount my daughter and I can swing for a while. Besides, I really need a place for my dogs to run freely if I can find a fenced in yard it would be terrific!
    As for the swap, I'm sure I'll make it again...I would like to anyway. Just IF I can find the time since I'd have to pack all of my fabrics...unless I keep at least a tote of favorites within reach!!
    Thank You Lord for answering my prayers, in this I am truely blessed!

    Thank you so much Lynnie, I'm in good faith that I'll find a nice place. WOW! 20 years ago!? I can believe it though. I have a real good friend that lives in Staten Island near Lemmon Creek. He pays $800.00 for a small 1 bedroom apt. It's in a nice area but still expencive. In my area here that $600.00 is a steel, my landlord is a very decent person and knows he could get a lot more for the house. I really have to say I'm blessed to have the home. Nice of you to think of my kids "Furbabies", they sure mean a lot to me.
    Have a wonderful day my Quilty Friend.
    Thank You Lord for answering my prayers, in this I am truely blessed!

    Thank you JuneBillie, I'm confident that we'll find something soon. As long as I can have my babies a nice yard to run in I'll be happy. I'm glad there are people like you ladies here that understand about the animals. Not just dogs but the cats are people too! I live in a small town outside of Chattanooga TN. I like the area and hope I can stay close by for my mothers sake.

    I've been practicing on the making of a few MR's for the next swap, so by April/May I should be pretty good by then! (I hope!)
    Thank You Lord for answering my prayers, in this I am truely blessed!

    I'm furbaby-less. I'm a dog person and my boyfriend is a cat person, so we just never have ever gotten any pets. I'm especially fond of small dogs. My last one was a miniature red poodle named Ginger. OMG was she prissy. She'd get in trouble and go hide behind the couch and sulk. What we didn't know until after she died though, was when she was hiding behind the couch, she was also chewing on the bottom of my end table.

    I like cats OK, but I don't want one. We had a tiny stray show up right after my ex-husband moved out. I stopped at the end of our driveway to get the mail and heard it crying in the wild undergrowth by the fence. I instantly knew what it was and called "here kitty" and she ran out and jumped in my lap in the car. Dusty begged me to let us keep it, and after thinking about it, and the timing, I said OK. I went the next day and got a litter box and good litter, and called the vet for cat food advice since she was a little thin. Two out of the next 3 days when I came home from work, as soon as I opened the door the litter box smell almost knocked me over. The box was at the other end of the house! I scooped and sprayed and scooped before work the next day again and still came home to my house smelling like a rotten dumpster in the dead of summer. I left it at my ex's mom's while I was at work & took off early & got it looked at, just in case there was something wrong & was told everything was OK. I couldn't deal with it though, so my ex's mom took the cat.

    She had that cat probably 6 months before she took it to the vet. By then, she and my son had named it Katie-Kitty. She's in there and the vet takes the cat out and comes back with it and is talking about male cats. She's thinking he's crazy, my cat's a girl. Why's he telling me about boy cats? She finally stopped him and he told her it was a boy. She had him about another 3-4 months, then he disappeared one day, but after that day at the vet, his name was Coty.

    i had a similar problem with rabbits. i could never tell boys from girls. i had a favorite rabbit named bert (our guinnea pig was ernie) in my classroom for 3 yr olds. bert would let the kids pick him up and carry im any old way, and would sit in their lap, and was always very sweet. my co-teacher had a white rabbit, a boy,too, and she wanted the 2 to meet.a bad idea! if bert and twinkie were both boys they would fight to the death. if bert was a girl she'd be pregnant in seconds-really!. the inevitable happened! she put them together. bert had 5 babies.

    My kitty has an odorless kitty box. Seriously. Have had cats my whole life and stumbeled on this about 15 yrs ago. Its a cadboard looking tray made out of recycled paper.fillit 1/4" to 1/2 full no odor. Zoey gets a new box every month. We scoop and every two weeks gets all new litter. The worst thing you can do is plastic.. makes a big stink. This recy led box NO plastic liners.
    Even zoey loves it.

    JuneBillie!! OH MY LORD!! I received my box yesterday and just opened it this morning. Dead tired last night but honey I had Goosebumps opening it and saw the most adorable MR!! I almost came to tears seeing how special it is! You say you're a new quilter but no-one would ever know it. And the fact that you labeled it on the back was an extra special touch!! Oh I SO appreciate the gifts so much!! And to everyone else I also received a big ol Hershey Bar, a pretty yellow fat quarter and a cute well needed manicure set in a gold pouch!! I feel as if I made a new friend and thank the Lord for precious people like Susan...Thank you dear sweet Lady... I'll post a picture as soon as I can but for now I just had to get on here!!!
    Thank You Lord for answering my prayers, in this I am truely blessed!
