I'm getting bummed . . Not even a note from my angel since a great July 4 package. I don't need gifts, how about even a card now and then?

Hi to my SQA. I received your wonderful package yesterday.
The little hatbox is adorable and all the sewing goodies
inside are terrific. I love the quilt jigsaw puzzle. How
did you know I like jigsaw puzzles? Came at the right time
too, cheered me right up. Thanks so much.
Hugs to you.

Peach - I laughed so hard when I read what you wrote about Pete, tears ran down my legs!!!!

Leota - I love, love, love picked okra. I agree about the store bought not tasting as good as home made. I love fried okra, whole okra baked around meat loaf, whole okra dropped in and cooked with blackeyed or purple hull peas (when they are almost done) and steamed whole okra. I just love okra!!!! I also love pickled beets, yellow squash pickles and the mixed pickled vegetables. Both my daughters will just sit and eat pickled beets right out of the jar, not just with meals. I could never buy enough fast enough.

Man - everyone has been getting such beautiful and thoughtful gifts. Some of our Angels are really talented. I also have not heard from my Angel in awhile but know she cares cause I get a great box every 2-3 months.

Oh....did I tell all you great folks I am going to be a grandma again? Grandson due Nov 11 by youngest daughter and another grandbaby by other daughter middle of Feb. Don't know yet if it is boy or girl but been sewing like crazy. I am still making baby quilts for new babies born at Church and our Church is called "New Life Church" and believe you me, we give meaning to that name!!! lol

Have a nice day everyone and enjoyable weekend. Love ya'll!

I know I've been here a few months, now. I have a confusion. Are there two avenues of secret quilt angels? like one permanent for the year then one month by month......am I straight with that thought?

Blessings, Ruth

Mrs. Pete....yes, first we started a year long SQA where some of us commited to do this from Jan thru Dec of this year and in December we are to reveal ourselves to our Angelees. They are also doing a monthly one on the Member Swaps and Trades section. I'm not part of it so not sure how it works.

That one is referred to as Secret Pals -- no Secret Quilt Angels (SQA) as this one is.

I'm only in the SQA swap (which participants signed up for prior to January and which runs for a full year) but have read about this month by month pals swap. This link regarding the June Secret Pals swaps should help clear up your confusion: http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-45851-1.htm

To my Angel,

I did get your very thoughtful card earlier in August (did post a thank you note) - your card said to watch for a package.

We have just headed out for a couple of weeks, so if it arrives while we're away, it will be safely set aside for us with all of our other mountains of mail, patiently waiting for us to return :)

Linda
