    I was waiting for the bottle to be passed this way but doesn't sound like there is enough to make it this far

    I can already hear the "wind chimes" when the wind blows with all those bottles tinkling against each other Wonder what the neighbors think LOL

    Terri- nope I am not buying into that " you just want to protect us " isn't that what you tried last year ???? Didn't work then... not going to work this year

    Okay - for those of us still around here - take a look at this - it is awesome - but before you start - put your drinks down cause you just may spill them when you start laughing!

    Well, even after all this time, I still haven't heard from my SS. The one I sent to. I checked with our host and she received it back in Nov. but never has posted or PM'd me that she received it. (I did have our host check with her back in NOv so I know it arrived at her house okay) Makes me kind of sad, we spend $ and put our hearts into making things especially for someone per their colors/requests ect.... and not even a simple thank you. I have had this happen to me more than once howeve I know that majority of everyone does make some sort of posts or PM. I know we are supposed according to 'the rules' but not everyone follows them. I will have to really think about joining anymore for the new year. As much as I enjoy the various swaps, just some common courtesy would be nice. Thaks for letting me 'share' with you all. MERRY CHRISTmas to you all.

    HAPPY QUILTING!

    Again, as I said before, let's give her the benefit of the doubt. She may have had some family emergency that made life more important to her than SS. If receiving a thank you is important to you, than, yes, maybe you should rethink joining these swaps. I don't join many because I am afraid that I may forget someone, in my rush to do other things. I am sorry that you feel "forgotten", but as I said, there may be some good reason. I like to think the best of people.

    Grann of 6, I know how Laquita feels as that is the way I feel, too. I try to do the best I can with the information I get on the sheets and my limited funds, et al and a simple thank you - even if I have to write myself a note to do it later because of some other more pressing issue - is not too much to ask. I don't think this would make me not want to join (please Yai-Yai, reconsider this) but I know I still would like that simple "Thank you".

    Kathleen, Thank you for your understanding,

    Grannto6, I KNOW 'life happens' as we have a 23 yo dd with special health needs, and I at times feels I can't be depended on b/c of various things going on with her. However after over 6 weeks surely a PM of thanks could of been worked in some where?????? Like I said it's not just this one person, this has happened more than once for me on various swaps. Just something I have to consider personally.
    Happy Quilting

    i'll confess i did a side swap for this ss, including my secret ss. it was alot more fun getting to know the person i was swaqpping with and i found out more useful info. yeah, i know, it ruins the secret part! but she and i are going to do a birthday swap, too. love the people i meet thru the swaps, and that is the true gift of swapping.
    The only bad days are the ones you don't get.

Thank you thank you thank you to my Secret Santa SASquilter. She made me a great pin cushion and a matching quilters accessory pouch. They're awesome and there were even some gingher scissors in there! :-D wow wow wow! There was also great fabric and a mini iron and and and...well, check out the pics! I'm super excited.

    LaQuinta and Vanogay I totally agree with you, as you know I have stated this several times. It doesn't have to be "Oh I love these" just even say "I got it" That truly is all it takes for me. Just the actually knowing your swap partner got it. To me it's like teaching your children to say "thank you" and "please" I do get very upset and I will admit it whole heartedly, although I'm at the point of when I've had enough I'm done. I'm just not quite there yet so keep doing the swaps and trying to keep a positive attitude. Yep, some days are more difficult than others and then I think "Hope they are enjoying it and they must need it more than I" . I guess to me it's like signing up for a swap and the deadline is months away or weeks, and they don't even start doing it until the very last minute....excuse me, here's another one that you might get a month or more after it's totally done. Why are there rules you're suppose to read and then not ever have a penalty for not fulfilling your part. Example I got 2 blocks back 10 days ago from the batik swap that was done and over with 6 months ago. Orphan blocks, quilt is done. Sorry I'm still on the bench this month waiting for things that should have been sent long ago and I know Vanogay is also, but that being said don't give up LaQ___ hopefully it will get better..................

    I never heard One word from mine.And I sent her special rulers that she wanted(not cheap) I also had her and another one in Oct for spal and nothing from either of them. I'm done with s pal. Most were good to let you know they got it and thank you , but I kept getting the same ones every couple months.I don't know why. Some don't follow the rules and they keep letting them on the swaps.
