    Tricia, so sorry for your loss. Know that must be very hard.
    Jaba, your package could come here, I wouldn't mind.
    Sharon Ann, would love a cowl - don't know if you caught my "Oh, I'd love one" last month or not, but, if not for me, there's always the future!!!
    Got my package mailed - maybe there Wednesday.

    Live today as if it may be your last, for who knows...

    Tricia sorry for your loss, can't even imagine. Prayers.
    Krystyna, hope everything goes well with the insurance company and things calm down for your family. Prayers.
    Brenda, your table runner is very pretty, such a fun and easy pattern but they look like a million bucks.

    Looks like a quick table runner, would make a great gift. Easy one to make for all the different holidays throughout the year. It would be a nice hostess gift or house warming. Why don't you just type out those instructions so we all have it. I love it...hint hint, I'll watch for the post and be sure and print it off. Please, it would be very nice to have. And what a plus, no hand binding, how can you beat that??

    Hey hope everyone has had a great VD. So very happy for Krystyna! Love the table runner Brenda! Tricia there are simply just no words, my prayers go out to you and your family! Sp your pkg will go in the mail tomorrow. Just a couple more items to add. I've had you before so trying to remember what I put in there last time... LOL!
    Pray for my FIL he had a small stroke almost 2 wks ago and today we got a call from his vet and had to put his little dog down. She was ate up with cancer. He's of course having a very hard time.

    To My SQ -

    I haven't seen you post in this thread.
    You live in a state East of me.

    I ordered something for you that will arrive separately from your main box as nobody around here had any of the things that you collect. Your main box will go out tonight if I get off work in time, or tomorrow since I am OFF!

    I received my package from Grandma Peg!! She sent me the most thoughtful gifts, M&M pretzels (my favorite), 3 lovely fabrics, Christmas buttons, an organizer box, 3 beautiful handmade Christmas ornaments and a 6 1/2" ruler. I had not asked for the ruler, but somehow she knew that I needed one for the new class I start on Wednesday. Thank you so very much Grandma Peg.Name:  IMG_0357.JPG

    My secret pal package went out today. I put some home made items in there. One of your favorite colors is purple. You live west of me.

    Nice table runner. The table runner is called "10 minute table runner". It looks really cute with the Christmas tree napkins.

    Crafty Darlene I send my prayers for your FIL...poor man..what a time to lose his little dog, too. so sad...

    Brenda, I love the table runner and do hope you share how you made it. It would be a great gift! My SP's package was delivered last Saturday but have not heard from her...this is almost as nerve wracking as waiting for mine to get here. Mine did on the 8th and YES I DID tell Lori! Actually I do that before I let myself get into all of the goodies so I won't get all caught up and forget. Lots of senior moments around here for sure! I am going out now and rake leaves...it is a nice sunny 40 degree day!

    My gift is off and coming your way! Your zip adds up to 13 and you love homemade things and homemade you got. Hope you enjoy everything!

    Okay secret pals, they are in the mail. I was waiting for 1 thing I ordered and it came today too! I was unwrapping one pkg. at the post office and putting it in the box and then taping that one. Post lady just laughed and said "called that one a little close huh?" When you get it, you'll know, it's right on top. Zip codes, here's another hint one adds to 19 and the other is 22. Hope they're there soon for you, can't track them until tomorrow

    Had another package in the mail too! for me from 1 of my SP's sibi. She sent me some beautiful FQ's, favorite colors too, a set of flower templates and a new magazine, don't have either of these. A sparkly pen and little storage box, a notepad, a little cute frog magnet a bag of peanut butter M&M's, I know I certainly don't "need" them but they are so good. She made me this really cute bag with velcro closing with the pink flower button and then a beautiful angel wind chime. I love everything so much Sibi, thank you for picking out such great things for me.Name:  DSCF0948.JPG

    Clue for secret pal - you like warm socks and mittens and might even put on the occasional stockingcap - does this sound like you?

    Sent out my SP package today. Sorry it took so long, financial restraints. The good news is...
    Hint 4 - you are west of me, but I could maybe drive it in 8-9 hours.
    Hint 5 - A past president is from your state.

    Next post: package received...stay tuned.

    Verna made me one of those little carry cases for quilter's stuff. Thanks! I love stuff made for me. Inside was a HUGE Hershey bar. Now my kids and DH remembered one SP gift a got that had candy in it and they were over my shoulder begging. Ya, well...it's chocolate...I DON'T THINK SO. Told them I had to take a picture first and stashed it when they weren't looking. Too bad they know I have it. Lord, give me strength! I got a cool panel with a teapot and cups and some black lace that wants to hang out with it somehow. I got several cuts of fabric in off white and red. I got a new tape measure and gauge, I got a couple of magazines, a calendar, a table top thingie, some lotion (who told her about my age related dry skin????), some napkins...Verna, how did you know I use cloth napkins...do you have a spycam installed here? , a grabber thingy for my rulers, and a needle nest with a threader. See, she saw me break mine the other night!!!!

    So much nicer than Christmas! Thank you again Verna and Lori for hosting.

    Received my package from Sue ( sustialey) today and it was great...Will put up picture tomorrow... Have to fill out a form for therapy tonight... Here is what mostly wasx in the package...
    Pixie says thanks for the goodies and believe me was thinking about a York pattie just yesterday.. Don't
    eat candy very often but really enjoy one of these once in awhile... Love the collection of fabric, although am not into plaids, especially orange, but thhink I have the ideal place to use it for a Charity quilt... The paid is already on the chair in my sewing room and and of course the needles arrived just in time and the seam ripper is ready to replace one that I use constantly... Know there were paterns and the magazine love that... Thanks for it all...

    Thanks Sue, God Bless Rosemary
