    .. But a pin Cushion, where did you get your pattern for the pin Cushion Rosemary?[/QUOTE]

    I sorta made it up, basically all you need to do is fold it in half after you got for of the windows filled ( you only need 4)and together... then fold in half and put pieces in those windows, pulll one more edge together and stuff and then sew it and flatten it and add the other window filling.. Hope that makes sense if not PM me and I will try to explain it better..

    Verna 2197....Thank you so very much for the secret pal package. I LOVE everything that you put in it. I thought when I opened up the one piece of fabric I was going to laugh so hard that I was going to wet myself...that was the BEST THING ever.....Verna wrapped a REAL LIVE LEMON in a piece of fabric and sent it to me all the way from Tennessee!!! I got the package on Tuesday, the day I go to my sewing group and I took it inside and opened it. She also sent me a bunch of other fabrics )) and I like all of them too, a note tablet, a quilt of the month quilt pattern that is called Rustling leaves, can't wait to make one of those blocks. , a little pair of craft scissors,some hand lotion, a pack of safety pins and a package of rotary cutter blades...And she also put in 2 BIG doggie treat bones. My dogs thought they were in dog heaven with those as we give them the little tiny ones. So these were a big treat. Thank you so very much Verna. ))
    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...

    sp

    First of all , let me say that I mailed my package to my sp today. It is going way west of me and she was my secret pal a while back. We also share something and that is our name.

    I finally got something right! I guessed Nelco was my sp by her clues and I was right! I got the neatest package from her yesterday. I am going to try to list everything. Tea made in the town that she lives in, Springfield, Oregon, treats for the Sass, wine glass charms, memo note pads, pattern for wallhanging with cats on it, dust from Oregon (for my collection), hand sanitizer, post-it pad, chocolate caramel Werthers, 2 little containers for sewing notions, homemade hanging towel...very nice. Quilters survival kit with M & M's, silver picture frame, note cards, paperback book that looks real interesting, firestarters (how did she know I had a fireplace?) made in her town, some Jo Ann patterns, fat quarter kitty and patriotic fabric, some charm squares in patriotic fabric, glue stick. Also a postcard of Mt Hood with a nice note on the back. I've been to Mt Rainier but not to Mt Hood.....yet!

    Can you believe she got all that into the box! Thanks Nelco. It was a great package and I'll use it all.

    I have my secret pal's package ready for the post office. I'll mail it on my way home from work tomorrow. It has a far way to travel. So anyone on the porch west of me look for it next week.

    I'm slightly west of PA, so it has to be me for certain. Finally I guessed my SP.. I was about THE worst 20 questions player in the world when I was a kid. Still am!!!

    I know I'm confusing everyone by not keeping promises to mail, but tomorrow for sure. It would have been today, but I had to wait for glue to dry - it took it's merry time. So for another couple of clues.

    Animal name = food name. SP has been quilting for a "lucky #" of years. Frankly, I think SP is on to my clues. Maybe I should try to be more tricky. I did not get to sew unfortunately, but I hope my goodies are liked anyway. There are handmade things, although not what I intended to begin with. Cheers everyone.

    Yeah that they do Ana....my daughter opened all my envelopes again today but at least this time she did it in front of me. I thought it was funny she got poked the other day. I don't mind if she opens them when I am there but told her it was illegal for her to do it when I wasn't around. I think she thought I was joking but I will have my dad tell her it is the truth (he is retired postal worker)

    PLEASE READ:
    I rec'd a pkg in the mail today and when I opened it, I found the most beautiful quilt ever that touched my heart in so many ways I can't begin to tell you. I cried like a baby and am still tearing up trying to type this. The love I felt when I held that quilt was the same love I felt when I held my 1st born in my arms for the 1st time. How can 1 person have so many dear friends whom they've never met in person? To have 1 friend you are truly rich, I am so overwhelmed to have so many on this board. My heart-felt love and many thanks go out to all of you who put your heart and soul into making this quilt for me. I am truly Blessed to have each and every one of you as my friend and I love each and every one of you! I am proud to show this board what you all did for me. And I would like to say I have 5 more treatments to go!

    Finally got my SP box together today have a few more things I need to put into it. Then in the mail it will go. I hope that my SP likes what she got. I was unable to find the one thing that she wanted, because with the other things that I purchased for her would of put me over the 10.00 limit! I am sorry SP..... Box will be going in the mail this afternoon though.
