    We have 79 signed up now, have been busy packing and taking boxes down to first floor apt and unpacking. They do not have the old carpet tore up yet and the new carpet in so can only put stuff into the kitchen, bathroom and storage closet (where most of my fabric is). They are not carpeted areas. Purging as I go. Am dead tired!

    Krystyna, I really need to ask you why you feel that you must going shopping for something "special" and not what you have already purchased and have on hand for just these swaps?? Or what you have taken the time and effort into making. I think I've put together some pretty great boxes and have bought here and there as I have seen items that I thought would be enjoyed. I know they ask what would you like most but sometimes that just isn't possible. Maybe I have totally missed something here and don't belong in this swap at all. I just don't understand why you would even think something like that. If I am out of line, please forgive me, but I truly think you are being way too hard on yourself. I feel like this should not be a hardship on anyone, but an extra little surprise.

    Finishing sea horses and pink ribbons and who knows what all else for friends on the board ...
    And I have a mountain of tomatoes and peppers and figs and blackberries and raspberries that need to get processed fast ... we got sprayed last night for mosquitoes and I wanted to get as much picked as possible before the truck came through ...
    But ... today is the 29th ... and the deadline is the 31st ...
    If only people would be happy with whatever I put into a package so I wouldn't have to take the time for special shopping ... which can't be done right now ... c'est la vie!

    I would be willing to wait for my package until the end iof the month.....if I got you as a partner! HUGS to you!

    It's Scots - the literal translation is, 'Long may your chimney (lum) reek (smoke)'.

    In other words - 'Have a long life!'

    I don't think you're dumb at all - there's probably quite a few - including those who live on the same island - who were wondering too!

    Krystyna I think you have plenty of stash, patterns, and other goodies to do the swap. I remember your pictures of the multitude of fabric you had. I'm sure no one would have a problem with you not shopping. I guess you are out numbered, so sign up before it's to late. Oh, you also have jam, don't forget.

    Us pesty? Now where did you get that idea? But I do too share with the rest! JOIN US AGAIN IN THE SWAP. On a serious note, not that I wasn't serious to begin with, sometimes all of us individually have things in life that are more priority and we do have to take a back burner on some things...so if you don't join this swap for sept. then I say that there should be a penalty for you: you send us all of your great jam!

Hope 'who ever' I gets likes what I send, of course i'll have to wait to 'personalize' wach box until i get her info...... hum..wonder who 'they' will be? Wonder where 'they' will live? Far or near?

    I so enjoy these swpas ladies, thanks for the time and effort you all put into making each one special.
    Have a blessed day.
    LaQuita (aka) - Yai-Yai to the most precious grandbaby around of course I'm partial! LOL

    Beeboop, you work in the Chrysler Bldg? That is my favorite building in all of the world! My late MIL lived in a penthouse on Park Ave and I used to just sit on her balcony and enjoy that view. I was able to tour it once..just so wonderful![/QUOTE]

    Yes I have been in this buidling for about 2 years now and I really enjoy it. I think the best part for me is I have access to the subway right inside the building so when the weather is horrible I don't have to worry about it cuz the train leaves me right under my desk as my DH likes to say....lol The building is gorgeous and it is always filled with tourist taking pics of the lobby since there is no observatory like the Empire State Building. I enjoy watching tourist enjoy what our city has to offer. My dentist is on the 69th floor of the building and it is quite a view from up there. A little scary but none the less it is breathtaking! I only work on the 12th floor so no view here, other buildings block everything. My old jobs I was on the 28th floor with a view so when I go to my dentist thats when I take it all in... I hope you weren't in the area of the Empire State Building the day that man shot and killed his ex boss in the morning. I think it happened the day you left. That was madness! So sad that people will take another person's life like that.

    Krystyna- If you send me beach plum jam I'll send you some red raspberry jelly. If by chance you get me as your secret pal.

    Krystyna, don't worry about making the packages special by shopping - I agree with Jaba - make them special with what you have. I'd love to receive one from you. SIGN UP!

    OMG apple butter! I grew up in Western NY and all things apples remind me of growing up.

    ESPECIALLY apple butter. It's epic. And no matter how much companies try, there is no duplicating home-made apple butter.

    I have my package all together (except maybe favorite colors, and if I have on hand something they love!) I was going to ask a profound question of utmost importance~ slipped right out of my mind! I hate it when that happens~

    Maybe I will be back later if I can remember what it was!!!!
    Give a smile away today, someone you meet might need one!
