    Today I received a second package from Annaquilts. Thank you so much for the Fat Quarter bundle of Grudge fabric. They are super, I love them. This is going over the top. Know that I really appreciate what you have done.

    Hugs Anna

    Secret pal, your package is on the way! You can expect it by Saturday. Once again, I forgot to put a note in it. I don't know why that is such an issue for me, but it probably has something to do with age. Anyway, I hope you like what I picked out for you.
    Gaijin, are you going to Keepsake Quilting? My husband's favorite part of that store is the porch lined with rocking chairs!

    Came home to a lovely package!

    I received my swap package today from Mary Christine! Fabrics, bobbin clips, quilt charms, beeswax and holder for my needles, a Thanksgiving towel, lovely Fall socks, two spools of thread, a novel, and snacks for my "little" 80 lb. puppy. Take a look!


    Many thanks!

    Today I received my goodies. Mr. Darcy was all over it because he knew there was something in there for him. Once I gave him one of his treats, he left me to enjoy mine.

    Thank you so much Brenda K. These goodies will definitely help me decorate my home for autumn. Perfect timing because I am having a small dinner party on Thursday.

    Will take a picture and have it posted by tomorrow.

    Have not heard anything from my secret pal. As the host, I know I should not get bummed, but I do and I am.

    I am also waiting still. Want to come and hang at my quilt room for the day? Good things come to those that wait. Maybe the postal is having fun with our packages? Can't wait to see if there is something in this afternoon's mail.

    Anna, I wish I could pop in and quilt together.

    Life has been so rough lately. My sons' dad broke his back in a car accident on Saturday. He has no one so we have all be pitching in to help him. They are going to release him from the hospital today and he has no one to care for him. Since my husband is off work with the broken wrist, he is helping the best he can. I am just overwhelmed.

    The secret apl package I sent was delivered Tuesday last week and I have heard nothing.

    Took this quickly before heading out with my mom who is visiting this week.

    This took my breath away. It was such a boost on a difficult day. Thank you Brenda K. I am having some people over on Thursday to meet my mom and I will enjoy using these decorations. Loved the old quilter’s magazine. I miss those ones.

    Oh no! You have had such a huge run of bad luck, I’m so sorry to hear.

    it is discouraging when your secret pal doesn’t acknowledge the package you sent. And you send such fantastic packages too! I always look forward to seeing what you’ve sent. Love your clues too.

    Thank you for all you do to keep this swap going for us.

    I received my package all the way from across the pond. It was half way open on one side but I hope everything is in it and it looks like it might be as it was full. I plan to take a picture tomorrow and post. I do not know who it is from as there is no note and it does not say on the outside of the envelop. I just want my partner to know that the amazing package she send arived and I love everything. I plan to post more tomorrow as I have not had a chance to sit and look at everything and take a picture. Thank you again!

    Look at all the goodies I received from Caroline. She really made an effort to send me goodies that were on my list and I received a whopping 9 FQ of Patriotic/ Americana muted fabrics. Thread, clips, wooden buttons, lotion, a quilt book and needles to go with it to get me on my way. Look at the cute charm she made from a spool and the lavendar sachet. Thank you again Caroline.

    Hi Anna,

    So glad you like what I sent.... sadly not everything arrived.... there was another reel of Aurifil and a bird christmas ornament. I will make another and pick up some more Aurifil ready for the next time that I get you as my partner.

    As for the Lavender..... yes, it grows in our garden although I cannot take credit for it as DH is the gardener... I just harvest, dry and shuck it!

    Hugs

    Hi Everyone,
