You did quite well....what pattern, I see several. If you hav. e rubber grips on your gloves they are nice for machine quilting. Can I have a bunny you have 2

I wonder if they would be good pin cushions lol

What a GREAT EASTER PRESENT!!! ;) You received a huge amount of "loot"! I love all of those patterns! I need to make something for my Angel, maybe a tote bag. I always worry that she might not like it. . . . . .then what? Re- gift?? :cry: I need to find something cute, like those bloomers!! I remember seeing those many, many years ago. I didn't know they still made those kind of dish cloths. Well Angels, it's sure nice to see all of the great finds. :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

KWHITE, you have a really difficult job! I sure don't see anybody volunteering to take your place. :hunf: Don't look at me....I could not begin to fit your shoes. Way too much work! :hunf:

* You cannot do a kindness too soon, for you never know how soon it will be too late. * So Angels, keep in touch!! :thumbup:

The turtle rag quilt pattern- I wanted that soo bad lol and now I have it. I still need to finish sewing what I am making for my little girl out of all the fabric she sent last time. I will post a pic when I am done with that. The kids ate all the candy already lol and NO they are MY BUNNYS lol get your own- Actually the little ones claimed them already :-)

K....don't let anyone get you down.
I went thru the same thing with Secret Santa.
It's a shame that people sign up for things, then decide that for what ever reason, they either don't want to send anything or maybe they forgot they signed up.
In either case....IT'S NOT YOUR FAULT!! You are just the facilitator that was nice enough to suggest this and took names to coordinate. What I would suggest is....if you keep getting complaints about people NOT receiving ANYTHING, then "oust" that person to the person that is supposed to be receiving and let the 2 of them hash it out.
Other than that, there's nothing you can do.
I know you have others that step in and help out, which shouldn't be the case, but well..........it just sucks when that happens.

For those of you who are sending to your SQAs, I commend you.
For those of you who are not...SHAME ON YOU! You know who you are and you shouldn't sign up for ANY swaps in the future since you are reneging on this one. If you aren't sending because you are having some sort of a problem, then you should be contacting Kwhite and letting her know so someone can step in for you.
Hurt feelings happen, but when something like this happens, it's more than feelings that get hurt.

Ditto, Terri!

Well said, Terri. It seems to be true that no good deed goes unpunished -- at least in KWhite's case. This swap has meant too much to too many and has brought our little world so close together. I see so much support and generosity and honest concern among the board participants. Life does get in our way sometimes, as do good intentions. This is a lesson in compassion -- and maybe human nature.

KWhite, I do appreciate all the effort you have gone through on behalf of this swap -- in spite of your own life demanding attention. Thank you. Maybe Terri's right -- just "out" the non-performers to their angelees and let them face off -- there may be legitimate excuses or maybe not. In any case, someone should learn a lesson in the confrontation.

And where is YOUR SQA, KWhite, as you endure all the "grief" being thrown your way?

Chele 03-26-2010 07:46 AM

kwhite, I appreciate all the time and effort that goes into hosting a swap. And the SQA swap is a big, ongoing one! If I can do anything to help (send PMs, e-mails, reminders, etc.), just let me know. I work cheap! I'm sure others would be willing to lend a hand too. Or be angels for the angels! Thanks for all you do.

Barbm 03-26-2010 08:29 AM

kwhite- ((HUGS)) to you, we all appreciate everything you do to keep this together.

I wish you were closer to me, I need help (once again). But a 4 hr. commute would cut into your quilting time. Good luck on your job search! The right one is out there somewhere!

karielt 03-26-2010 09:17 AM

Kwhite I need to let you know also how much it means to me that your willing to spear head this and take on the good and bad of it. You are a wonderful person and I am very very greatful. If there is something I can do to help please let me know.

sharon b 03-26-2010 10:07 AM

I agree with what Terri said :thumbup:

And another thought ,Maybe Karen gets an email from someone who is NOT mailing, saying life is in the way but I want to continue as soon as possible, what is she to do ? Not saying that not sending is right, but if you can't do it , be fair about it and just bow out without any hard feelings.

All the gifts are GREAT :mrgreen:
Karen GREAT job with the swap and good luck on the job search

It has been a long time but today I got a package from my SQA. I really thought she was dropping out. It was nice to hear from her. She sent me 4 one yard pieces of the softest fabric from seaside quilting supplies. I am anxious to make something but really hate to cut it up....again thank youSQA glad you are among the living once again...God bless :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

OK, I did not join this swap, because I knew this was going to happen, even though I was happy to help Karen get it all set up. I am APPALLED at how some of you "Ladies" (and I use the term loosely) are acting over this!!! Shame on you!! And I am going to tell more than I should, but Know Sew, your angel doesn't even live on this continent, so it is a big, fat, hairy deal for her to send you anything!!!!!! Don't expect something even every month.

You guys all sound like whiny children "Her piece of cake is bigger", "Her cookie has more red sprinkles than mine", "Mom loves you best". "Mom loves ME best!". Grow up!!!

Grama Lehr 03-26-2010 12:42 PM

your fabric is lovely knotsew!! With one yard pieces, you could make something really nice! ENJOY!! :thumbup:

magnolia 03-26-2010 01:05 PM

I wanted to say a big Thank you to my SQA! I received a card in the mail today with a Joann's gift card. She also noted for me to look out for a package that will be coming. THANK YOU SQA you are great.

I also want to say thank you to kwhite for all of the hard work she does to keep this swap going and arranging everything so that we can enjoy having new friends.

Chrickett 03-26-2010 01:47 PM

Ok, everyone I want you to know that I have apoligised to kwhite and I will tell you that I should of never done what I did. You can be assured I will never do anything like that again. Now can we please get on with more pleasent matters. Chrickett

May I ask why you decided to pick me out of this whole swap to comment on.....what the heck did I ever do to you..... I will not sink to the name calling level...but MYOB

lfw045 03-26-2010 03:55 PM

Maybe you're the one that needs to get over it, gaigai......after all Knot Sew acknowledged and thanked her Angel for the lovely fabric and gift she received. What you said was just as uncalled for. You're not the one being totally forgotten. It is very easy for anyone to push a button and send an email if there is something wrong and they can't continue with this type of swap. It's also common courtesy. Everyone would understand and go on with it. I know that Kwhite never dreamed it would turn out like this......I sure did't and it is not her fault. Lesson learned.....but I'm glad I got involved because I met a very sweet friend and I value that connection very much.

Everyone needs to take a deep breath and relax.

gramqlts 03-26-2010 03:59 PM

Can we all act like adults now and not squabling siblings and get on with life. Every one take a deep breath and remember "Angels" are one of God's most prescious carriers of good news and love.

Enough already!!!! We are adults and creatures of God too...right? I love you all!

OK so now I change my name and e-mail I just checked I am not getting update under the new e-mail what the heck!!!!!!!!!!!!!

kwhite 03-26-2010 05:08 PM

Thank you all for your kind words of support. Never fear, None of this has me upset or discouraged or anything like that. I have worked in a prison for 8 years. Nothing that happens here is going to get through this tough skin. I like very much to be nice but I can go from nice to "B" in .3 nano seconds if need be. All of my pants (unfortunately) are big girls pants. I am working on that but that is another thread altogether. Anyway I knew there would be issues and I try to deal with them. I viewed this as sort of a lottery scratch-off. Sometimes you are going to hit it big and get the top prize but some times people will get the "free ticket". Before I judge a non sender as "inconsiderate" or any other label I will always give that person an opportunity to explain. If they choose not to reply within the allotted time I will remove them. It has happened. Anyway, Thank you again for your support. Your kindnesses are what keep me going.

And someone asked about "where is my angel", Trust me she is awesome. Very generous and thoughtful. Now lets get back to the fun and put all this ugliness behind us. If you want ugliness go look up the ugly fabric threads. There is plenty there and you will pee your pants reading them.

gramqlts 03-26-2010 05:22 PM

I want to read it....where is ugly fabric threads? trupeach1 is just as sweet as trupeach....I know cause she is my friend~!

STAR 03-26-2010 05:24 PM

well I like truepeach1 because after all there is only one and she is it!!

Try clearing out your temp files on your computer. Often it helps.
