    Am just drilling down into SP's list now, so it shouldn't be too long before it's winging it's way ....to a state that is on a great lake....got the candy, check, got the whooha, check, got the whatsis, check, got the thingamabob, check....now just have to wrestle it all into a package so I don't scare off the maillady....who informed me the last note I left for them that she was NOT a mailman, but a maillady....hhhhmmmm last time I saw the mail deliverer he sure looked male to me

    Was going thru my books to find one to include and saw one that was called "Quilts to soothe the Soul", so since my SP said she likes to quilt to relax I thought AHA. Well, after looking through it, I decided not to send it, it's all about memory and memorial quilts for the departed, I'm not sure my SP wants to get quite that relaxed....

    So I have a question for you swappers especially the international ones. If you received a box with two yards of fabric with a comment on the shipping label that it was from your swapper would you be ok with that? Or if they dropped you a postcard in the mail saying that a box was coming? The reason I am asking is because I was able to purchase two yards of this persons favorite fabric for just four bucks more than the limit on an online shop and the shipping was the same as if I were to go to the postoffice and ship it off. I figure the four bucks more saved me a lot more in gas and time going to the store and post office. Does this see unthoughtful? I hope my person doesn't get offended but I did send her most fabric fabric line sooooooooo

    I think it was a great idea! They are letting her know that it was from her secret pal?

    well they said that the comments section will be on the invoice with the package. I sure hope they do. I am still going to send out a postcard I think.

    Nexxus~I think that it's fine...that way you aren't paying to have it shipped to you and then you ship to pal (even more economical if it is international).....I've done stuff like that before and my pal has never had a problem with it....I've also had someone who had too many things come up to prepare what she thought was a "good enough" package, and received an email saying that I had a $15.00 credit at Connecting Threads and to go online and use it (she figured that between the $10 limit and the shipping it would be $15)...I thought that one was really different and I really enjoyed that one!!

    Don't think it'll be me again, but postage is so expensive for international and fabric so pricey outside the US, a couple of yards would be a great parcel! Who wouldn't be delighted with that? (Hope it is me, lol!)

    Oh I did not know that fabric was so pricey over there. I will have to remember that if I get you as a pal again.

    I am 21, is it me? well I am not really 21, my zip is... don't think me to lame here but I can't tell you how many times I had to add those numbers together... I figure if I say something then you will all remind me when you see someone mention the zip code is 21... thanks, I need every little bit of help I can get!

    I made a totally awesome wall hanging for another swap, Rhonda's Wall hanging swap... anyway I loved it so much that I was going to go into production, but by the time I actually finish it I don't think I will feel all that good about going into production, not that it isn't something you would all want, I am just getting kinda burnt out on it!

    I actually came in here for a reason but after reading all the posts and clues and then having to do math and well OK I FORGOT! Sheesh, oh well time to go do something else, I even forgot what else I was supposed to do, I know Nap Yep that is it a good long nap~
    Give a smile away today, someone you meet might need one!

    Dear SP,
    I tought of you today, but sad to say I have not had a chance to work on your package yet. I know this is disappointing to you, don't dispair though I promise I will take time to get it together before the 15th. I have been very busy as my youngest son is getting married this month. I will be having company stay here for a few days and I have been trying to get my house ready. As I have been cleaning the past couple days ...I have realized I have spent WAY too much time quilting ! Your profile info tells me you are a busy lady too...making things for children. You must be such a special lady. Well I will let you go for now.
    Remember I haven't forgotten you

    So excited. I got some awesome fabric for my partner today and got a really good deal and I think it satisfies all their requirements (except favorite line) for their favorite. Gotta a few other things, good deals, gotta love sale days! Now I have to make a few things then I can package it all up and get it out.

    Marybeth and Leiladylei54, sorry, but you are not my sps this month, maybe I'll get one of you next month. SP another clue you like diet coke. I am going to a quilt retreat 14th-16th, so I guess I will have to mail the pkg early. I would like to make you something you collect, but not sure I will have the time.

    I did mention a favorite candy, think I might have mentioned a thingamabob but not sure about the wahoo-ish thing.

    Nexus, Melinda, I think you did a great job on the secret pal swap. I think a note also is a good idea, it is part of the fun of getting to know each other.

    ToomanyUfo's your clues eliminated me too.

    But on a happier note I received some happy birthday squishees from some of my friends here on the board, last week luvstoquilt sent a fq and a note, yesterday I got a fq, pins, and some homemade notecards from everrose, and today an angel fq from mscupid804, and they all included notes for a happy birthday. Thank you ladies for making my birthday shine so bright!

    Nexus - I think you made a really good choice. Who wouldn't want to get 2 yards of lovely fabric from their SP. So I say, good job.

    My DH, DD and I took a road trip to Mt. Rainier yesterday and I picked up a couple things for my SP. I also found something cool at Home Depot. After making something, the package will be off in a couple days. It's heading quite far away from me. Wait until she tastes the surprise!!

    I need to apologize to my SP this month. I had every intention of getting your package out in the mail the other day but I have had a relapse with my sickness. Am going back to the dr tomorrow so hopefully I can get it mailed by Saturday. I have not been this sick in I don't know how long. I have everything in your packages, just need to seal them and get postage on them. Please forgive me.
