    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.

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.

    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!

    Hi Anna,

    It was from me.... I forgot to put the note in.... I found it on the side when I got home from the post office. I hope you like everything.

    Hugs

    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

    Caroline

    Hi Everyone,

    I received a wonderful package from Deboarah..... I always know it is from her, even before I see it as my Westie goes mad jumping around when I get a package from Deborah as she always send Chloe something, which makes for one happy doggie!

    Deborah, you are always a thoughtful and generous swap partner..... and my friend - thank you!

    Hugs

    Caroline
