I am sorry I have not posted sooner, I have been living in HELL the past week. I Received a wonderful card from my SQA. I wonder if she made it because it is a flower made of fabric with a buttom in the middle OHHHHHHHHHH so cute. The envelope was opened (my post office is the worst they open in going and out going mail lots of times) Thank you it brightened my day.

ps....... if I am not around to thank you in a short period of time I am sorry. If you want info you could contact esqmommy or gwyn they are good friend of mine, they could tell you what is happening in my life. THEY WILL NOT GIVE YOUR IDENTY AWAY.

I posted early this week in another spot about how my SA had sent me something. Don't remember what I said but here a recap as I remember it.
I have had shoulder surgery and family issues and had slipped into some major depression. I am not a setting person as most farm wives work as hard as their husbands. My shoulder turned into a major thing and I have really been dealing with a lot of pain and feeling of helplessness. Plus I almost lost my baby sister Christmas week ( another story to long to tell right now). I have basically gone into hiding.
My husband came in to the house with a big envelope, saying, What you order now?
( I am good at ordering of line.)
You got to stop sending but he was grinning. I knew I hadn't order anything.
It was a gift from my SA. It was wonderful. She sent a group of F4 that will go with the mystery quilt I want to do just perfect. Like they been picked at the same time I picked the ones I have. The are light greens,pinks,rose and beige. She also put some pretty chicken fabric in there. Two pieces enough to make a pretty apron and even some left over to make a apron for my side kick in baking ( my 2 1/2 yr old grand daughter Aurora ). But that wasn't all. She had note cards with chickens on them and a week planner. But wait there even more. A CD with quilting things on it. I set in the floor looking at all of it and crying.
My husband and daughter in law said, See Gods telling you at all going to be all right and you be able to use your arm
again.
But the most wonderful gift was that it helped start me out of the depression, I had been in for a month now. I had refused to go to town or even go to church. My husband said, Now that you got this wonderful gift from your SA, would you want to go to town tomorrow and get something for your Angel? This from the men that had a fits about what I spent on my mystery quilt fabric. Go figure
I haven't got to go to town yet but will Wed when I go back to the Dr. and I can't wait to shop for my SA.

I haven't figured out what she likes yet. Someone said to look in past post, like say ( and this isn't my person just some names I saw )Jim' Gem,Country maid,Joan or moonpi.
I would go look up what Country maid says she likes or dislikes. Right. I am just not sure now to do that. But I bet I will figure it out. I hope my SA will be as Blessed as I was to get my package.
It never stops amazing me how God hands guide people when you need them the most.
To my SA, you are a special Angel sent to me by God and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I have been looking at post and who sent them and there some of the neatness and different handles on here. Like brabus or Sugar pumpkin. so, I got to thinking it might be fun to tell how we picked a handle.
My name Kathryn and I am called Oklahoma Lightning.
I picked my name from a country song that is about lightning.
There a line in there that says Thunder makes the noise but Lightning does the work. I started raising Heritage turkeys this year and was looking for a name for Back Yard Chickens where I belong. I want something that said where I was from and people would remember. I had been sing that song for days. So, I decided that would be my name. It has worked so good for my business that I now have applied for a pickup tag with that on it from my tribe. My new Web site for my turkeys will carry the name. The opening picture will have lightning in it along with the Heritage turkeys.
That my story and I am stucking to it.

charismah 01-16-2010 12:01 AM

Well I got my email as did all of you from Kwhite.....and I have to say that until last week or something..I didn't know we were supposed to post a message on this topic saying we got our gifts..so I am sorry to my SQA that I didn't post sooner..my bad. It makes complete sense...I just wasn't aware...I did mention it on my blog....but I know not everyone looks there...so anyway for those of you just waiting for the thank you ..that si one possibilty of why not.

diannemc 01-16-2010 05:30 AM

I just want my secret angel to know I am thankful for my gift..( cutest angel fabric, heart buttons, and a plack that reads..I'm sew happy!)I have not been able to post picture..I don't have a camera so have to wait for DD to come home from school...I just want to say, I don't want my secret angel to be burdened with this..I don't expect something all the time, and if my secret angel can't send another thing that is just fine with me..I know how life is and you never know from day to day what will happen...Thanks again..

I like your name and why you choose it. I would love to hear from others on how/why they choose their "handles"?

brushandthimble= I wanted to combine both my hobbies / teaching subjects; brush =I have been teaching tole painting for over 20 years, only as a hobby , I also teach quilting for the past 10 years. I love needle turn applique and hand sewing bindings, and I use thimbles to do these:)

sandpat 01-16-2010 06:49 AM

Somewhere on the board is a loooong thread with everyone's explanation of their screen name...I can't find it right now though. Its interesting to read though.

Chrickett 01-16-2010 07:41 AM

Truepeach, I am sorry you have had a terrable week,I hope that this new week will bring you some happiness. I will pray for you and hope things smooth our for you.

GladGrams 01-16-2010 09:01 AM

My Special Angelee has not heard from me - and for that I am so sorry. I am stuck in America as my husband has been hospitalized and they are still testing. Cannot get back across the ocean for at least another week or so. When he is discharged I will have some breath to mail off the fun package to make her smile. I will send a note about a gift I may have rec'd at home when I finally get there.

Not to worry, we are doing well and being well cared for by the hospital people and local family. Expect definite answers soon and maybe a discharge today.

sharon b 01-16-2010 09:31 AM

Tru and GladGrams so sorry for all your difficulties

I'm home haave received all of your cards and gifts. THANKS I'm one special angel this year. I am going to try to make the mini fabric ornaments this afternoon. I have a busy 2 weeks ahead of me. Gwen Marston is coming to our guild to do a lecture and workshops. I am the lucky girl in our guild to have the honor of her staying in my home and sewing room. To you that know Gwen you know how funny she is and to you that don't --Take a class from her any chance you get. She is cutting way back on her classes and lectures.

I hope my angel has received her packages and looking forward to the many more that are on the way.

My SQA sent me another package. Thank you so much. There is "Snowman Soup" (hot chocolate) with a tiny wisk attached. A double crisp chocolate snowflake ( which I am enjoying now.) And last but not least, the latest issue of Fons and Porter Quilt magazine. I have looked at it several times but never bought it. You must have read my mind lol.

Thank you again for brightening my day.

Thank you so much Quilt Angel!!! I went and picked up my package from the post office yesterday. :D
I received some awesome fabric! The middle striped fabric reminds of summer on the beach. All the bright colors! (beach balls and umbrellas) I think I might try and make a cheater strip tube quilt. :lol:
The white fabric with the tuffs of colored fabric is so cute! It makes me want to go get some minkie fabric so I can make something real sweet. And the red and gray striped fabric will fit perfectly in my stash! I also got some straight pins, a cute tin with some safety pins, a leather thimble (Thank you!) and a wonderful card!
You rock secret angel!

Knot Sew 01-17-2010 07:05 AM

What a great angel gift for some one in snow country. Save your scraps, get a bit of sand fabric and make a little beach wall hanging.
Think sand and sun :-D :-D :-D

I don't know who my angel is but she has something going on right now...so I am sending a prayer and a hug.

sandpat 01-17-2010 08:25 AM

Ruth, I bet your angel will make up for it when she can. I'll send happy thoughts your way!

karielt 01-17-2010 12:38 PM
