    A Lovely Package!

    My swap partner was Frickles and I received a stuffed-full package of joy about a week and a half ago. I am posting two pictures of all the goodies. A sewing kit with scissors, embroidery scissors, fabrics (including a certain blue that I just ran out of!), note paper, an embroidery kit, a special magnet you can use anywhere, a little clip stand, a chicken/rooster panel, safety pins, and some great sewing projects!

    Thanks again, Frickles!

    Woohoo frickles is my real life friend I got her started on the quilting board. Shes a very very special lady. I always hope she would get me or I get her as a secret pal. Never have though. She sent you a lovely package.
    There comes a time in life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh, forget the bad, and focus on the good. So, love the people who treat you right. Think good thoughts for the ones who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of LIFE...Getting back up is LIVING...

    Catpawski I hope you receive your pkgs soon! Its a bad thing to wait all this time. Krystyna glad your husband made it well from surgery and hope he recovers just as well. Verna, wish you the best and speedy recovery on your surgery! Has anyone heard from Lori? I pray that she is doing well and resting.

    Thank you everyone for the well wishes. I am home laying on the couch with my leg propped up. Tried to watch the voice, didn't go so good had to replay couple of times on account of falling asleep.

    Got my package friday. It was a nice package. I love the plant mats..I got lots of plants. The fabric was so pretty. This was my first SP swap. I am really pleased with it. It was so much fun I may have to do it again.

    You really have me confused............I checked my pm's for this month and I received your information on October 2nd along with Belfrybat.........so as far as I know you didn't get the secret pal package by mistake you were one of my two secret pals............I didn't hear anything from Lori about a mix up.......

    And yes it's a bad month.........I still didn't get either of my secret pal packages.........I did PM Lori but no response yet.........and since she hasn't been around due to her surgery I'm not expecting to hear anything for awhile...........

    Sounds like a mix up of some sort happened.............maybe noboby was assigned my name to be their secret pal ...............that would makes sense as to why I haven't received at least a package from one of my two secret pals

    This happened to me last December - neither of my two pals sent (although I did get something in February from one of them - but that's another story.....). It's a horrible feeling, so can empathise.
    Chin up, Lori will sort it when she's up to it. Don't let it put you off further swaps.
    Lang may yer lum reek. (I'm a knitter - hence - 'Knit-ette'. Confuses a lot of people!)

    Finally home from the hospital. Ran into a lot of problems. 1 hour surgery lasted 6 hours. I made it and getting stronger every day. I am staying at Marty's house, until I feel better.

    So good to hear from you. We were all a bit worried. You take it easy Lori so you can heal fast.
    There comes a time in life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh, forget the bad, and focus on the good. So, love the people who treat you right. Think good thoughts for the ones who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of LIFE...Getting back up is LIVING...
