    No big deal. luckily, I keep buying stuff when I see it and have a pretty good sized stash so it's not a huge deal, I can pretty much match up with most anybody on something

    You'd be surprised how often it happens and it really makes the job of being a hostess HARD and frustrating. And worse yet, you don't want to leave someone negative feedback even though they might deserve it.

    I had no idea that it happens that often.
    A big thank you to all of our hostesses... and the Angels who pick up the slack.

    It is so depressing to see people still waiting for their pkg to arrive. Not to wish bad on ANYONE, but I hope they have a good reason and just neglected to do it! I am sure they received their package. I hope this doesn't spoil it for anyone, cause this is FUN!!!

    We have a great hostess and this group is awesome... I love this swap.. To me it is the fun in putting together a package that my SP will (hopefully) like... I have 1 thing left for my October package then in the mail it will go.

    We do have a wonderful hostess, and she will make sure no one is empty handed. It just takes a little extra time, which is soooo hard (I've been there) when you see all the lovely squishies arrive.

    I received my SP package from "Angel" Greenini!! What a great package it is. Very pretty fabric in my favorite colors, (6) cutting wheel replacement blades which I needed very badly! A quilting blocks book, I'm very excited to sit down and choose my next project. Also, rulers, tea's, sewing needles, hoop,Janet Evanovich book, some ginger chews. I had to try one and they are really good and refreshing! I can not thank you enough Jo... HUGS

    Great package. Sorry you had to wait so long for it, but the Angels always come through for us, don't they?

    what a joy!!!! its been like Christmas Morning for me. Thank you so much lauriejo for making me so happy.

    I am glad you enjoyed your package, I had fun looking for skulls. I have found a new brand of gluten free bread, Goodbye Gluten, and I almost sent you a loaf. But I was afraid it wouldn't ship well.

    Yep, it's just cut strips of fabric. I like the frayed look so the strip edges are raw. I have made them for every holiday because they are so easy to fluff up when unpacked.

    I think I got them at Pat Catan's outlet store. It was a while ago so I'm not sure. They are supposed to be for macrame.
