    Hey! You pickin on me? I hope so, I love to be included! LOL
    I did take 2 this month. If you add their zips together it totals 66,398. I hope that hint doesn't give it away. LOL They both own a sewing machine and they both like to make quilts. Hummmmmm chocolate covered jawbreakers.

    A hint or two for my SP.

    She has no pets. I figure she has UFO's that make up for them.

    She also likes a certain type of fabric line, which I'll see if I can find at my LQS.

    I also took 2 SPs this month and hopefully I can get them into the mail tomorrow.
    Clues for my SPs. Both of you have dogs and love to read.

    SP #1- your zip code adds up to 26, your town has had 3 different names, and there was a major fire in the early 1900s that destroyed almost all of the town. I have seen you post on here alot.

    SP #2- your zip code adds up to 22, your town was named after the founders, the mill in your town supplied meal and flour to the Confederate States Army. I don't think I have seen you post on here.

    Looks like some HST in the corners and then strips around a center square... put on point and then 2 rectangles, and a square with strips between them... Doesn't look too hard. Graph it graph paper is your friend!

I will be leaving on my roadtrip Thursday night and my kids start school tomorrow so no real time to make anything until I return on Wednesday. I will find a way to have my package ready to go by the deadline so my SP doesn't have to wait too long.
    This could be me. I listed a couple of projects that can be a little difficult. I like the challenge. A few more clues would be nice.

    That eliminates me. I don't have any pets anymore and I love coffee.

    Catching up here and past my imposed bedtime again. So far none of the zip clues are mine, I'm west of you Cheryl so I can scratch you off as my sp, I'm west of grammyj but not waaayyy west. scratch. However my sp is west of me-a good bit. I love all the colors so I don't usually list a favorite. I love surprises-but doesn't everyone in this swap? So that one could be me unless she listed the zip total-if so it couldn't be me (see above)

    Wouldn't that be a hoot if someone signed up for 2 and another person signed up for 2 and one of them got the other one's name twice ~say if Lori drew names from the bowl or hat or popcorn bag, and she left it as it was. LOLOLOL, hahahalol.

    Krystyna i bet you have Scissors Queen. Nice job on the send off QAYG sorry I couldn't manage a square for this one, but I'll owe you one in the future.

    Ha ha... now that is a funny clue... Are you sure, really really sure she has a sewing machine!... the statistics are pretty much against me since my zip is more than both of those combined! I am sad~

    I am sending out 2 SP boxes this month... I feel like sending out pink chocolate! I always worry about sending chocolate because what if it melts, it is so hard to get it out of the baggie if it melts. I guess you could put the baggie in the freezer and get every last drop that way!

    I am going to be Visiting in the same State as one of the recipients of one of my SP package??? I would love to go to the other State also but I am waiting for an invitation!

    I think maybe they both garden, not sure but I am hoping so. I have some really cool gardening stuff I want to add to the package.

    Today was a shopping trip for my quilting buddies and I, we had so much fun. I love going into the city to buy fabric, we always look to see if we can see a movie star. But very few of them hang out in fabric stores. But I did see a limo on the freeway today, we tried to guess who was in it. (The fun things to do while stuck in Southern California traffic jam)

    Ok I am going to bed now, this night owl has had a long day~

    sweet dreams~

    I know that you will be visiting the Seattle area soon, will you be able to get out and visit some quilt stores? My dogs ate all my plants that I started so I gave up on gardening. I can let you know the most interesting stores to visit

    ...........and they're off!

    Before I go any further, I'd just like to say - Kystyna, neither of them are for you.............

    My first SP has two furbabies and two SPs. She wants patterns for something I just made last week (pity - no pictures up). Something she collects is winging it's way to her............ She's a cheery person who doesn't post a lot...........

    My next SP is a cat lover, has a new furbaby and still has time to cook! Doesn't like the same fabrics as me - too bad I didn't mention what they were in my profile............ Bit of a sweet tooth........... Doesn't post a lot, but I know she'll be reading this......

    Hmmm I have an SP who doesn't want candy?!?!? She lives west of me, unless you want to go the long way and then she lives east of me. I want to hand deliver her squishy because she lives in a place I have always wanted to visit. Do you suppose my new boss would mind if I took some time off?
