    Check out some of the pictures from this months swap and some of the past months swaps. That will give you some ideas of what to send. It's a fun swap and it is not stressful unless you make it that way. We have a lot of fun on here. Lori is a great host and can help you with whatever you need.Or sometimes the rest of help.Hope to see you in the swap and also hope you are a poster.Mary

    I am in for October after all. Our fearless and wonderful leader says the mailing date is good to get it here by the 25th. This is so much fun.

    They get 25% of it. I did everything up to the point the appeal will now go in front of the judge, and I felt I needed a lawyer just to be covered for judicial purposes and not get walked over. They want you in so much debt before you get it that all the back pay has to be used to pay for everything your behind on. Ridiculous process. The attorney says they do that to weed out the people who really don't need it.
    This past week they think I ruptured another disk in my back, so I continue to lay in bed. Was up too much today and paying for it today. Husband said, "you better tell the attorney". My wording was, it has to be confirmed or the SS won't care. That is what the attorney says. It all has to be down confirmed on paper before they will even consider it. Just unfortunate we have to go through so much. I checked to see if the process could be speeded up and you either have to be terminal or how being foreclosed on before they will consider your hearing date to be moved up.
    I am so sorry for your sister. That is an example of why I am so upset with the process. It is almost if they are waiting you out.
    My husbands ex was working and hurt her back, and the workers comp doctor got her SS and she only had one back surgery. Here I have all these problems and 6 back surgeries and I repeatedly get turned down. Something is definitely wrong with our system.
    Happy Quilting!

    I agree. I know I try to get the stuff on peoples list and then I put a little of this and that too. Magazines, books, patterns, fabric, candy, thread, lace, ribbon, ornaments, just whatever goodies you would think the person would like. Can come from your stash or you can purchase. I think in this group we all welcome used things. We just have fun with it. Some of us post clues for our SP to see if they can guess who has them as their SP. Glas to have you join with us.
    Happy Quilting!

    Thanks everyone for the prayers. I am still here in bed. I have numbness now in my abdomen and private area. The nurse practioner wanted me to go for an Xray. But the doctor said to wait till swelling was down and she was going to schedule a milligram cat scan for me. So I haven't went to Urgent Care to have the Xray. If I get worse I will. I have a neurostimulator in my back so I can't have MRI's anymore. I have found that nothing seems easy with my body. Will keep everyone posted as things go. Meanwhile, just laying around, very bored.
    Happy Quilting!

    We had a beautiful quilt show for our guild this weekend. I only got one entry made, plus a challenge quilt from year before last (we do a show every other year, so next one is Sept 2015). It is called the Rainbow Connection, as it is made from many rainbow bits I was gifted with or made bits of. There are pieces from several swap partners in here, and it was quilted for me by Sewdamncute!

    Signed up yesterday for the swap. This is my first swap, also doing the Secret Santa in another thread. Thought this would be fun way to connect with new people.

    I have done a row robin before, which was a lot!

    Newcomers be sure to follow along as we tease each other and give hints as to where their package is going and then you get to see the packages as the take pictures of and post on this thread. We do have a good time. Please make sure you go over the rules about sending private messages to your host (me) and your secret pal after you get your package. Just stick with this thread and enjoy the fun! Glad to see some people have returned. Just think tomorrow you get your names......
