Karen.

it's a tough job and you are handling it like a real trooper......

We all do appreciate you and if someone gets a bit upset, it must be their bad-day..we all have them.

Sorry about that interview but it just wasn't your job.....yours is out there somewhere and it will find you soon.....

..been away for a few days and been sitting here reading all the posts.....wow....such goodies

Have a good day......Maryjane

Ok...I won't to grump about my brain deadness....I still can't figure out how to get pics from the camera to move on.

But I really want to Thank my Angel for the fantastically gorgeous batik FQ's. Guess she is a mind reader too cause she sent a pattern for a new wallet too. And ALL RIGHT the MMMMM's were for breakfast even tho I was sick to my stomach.

HAPPY EASTER!!!!! Angel

This is for my dear angel...I am very sorry if you think I was mean spirited and a complainer... I have had a lot of troubles in my life lately and was just looking forward to much, to this "swap". Please do not feel obligated to send me things a card now and then will make me very happy. Sorry if I made you feel bad. I will not be posting here anymore unless its necessary.

Oh my goodness! My Angel is such a doll. During the week I posted that she sent me an adorable fabric post card. Well today I received a book from her on how to make them! I'm so excited! Now I don't have to try and figure it out myself! (whew!) She also sent the latest issue of Quilting Arts which is chock full of beautiful/interesting things. AND 2 fabulous soy jar candles. I was just at someone's house and she had candles from the same company (Beanpod Candles)and they burn so nicely and really hold their frangrance. Some others lose them right away. Which, by the way, the 2 frangrances she sent, Earthly Embrace and Fresh Linen, are just delicious. Haven't burned either one yet, but I will! Will get my daughter's camera this week and take a pic of this wonderful gift and the previous gift. Thank you so very much my angel friend. You are priceless! Love you.

I got a squishie! I got a squishie! My SQA sent me an envelope that arrived yesterday .... :-)

The envelope is COVERED with easter bunny and easter egg stickers :-)

But the back says "DON'T OPEN UNTIL EASTER" !! :-(

HOW WILL I BE ABLE TO WAIT THAT LONG???

Well, I waited 13 extra days for my first child to arrive, I suppose I can wait another week or so to open this package ... as long as it sits quietly on the hutch in the dining room and doesn't taunt me too hard I will be okay.

I guess I'll bury myself in sewing blocks for the Boomerang swap. That should keep me busy!

In the mist of darken days
An angel seems to fine her way
To bring the warmth of giving light
To make the day a sunny bright
So angel friend, and gift divine
Bless you for touching a soul like mine


Thank you Ethel my Angel

Dear SQA:

I got a package just couple hours ago. thank you so much, a nice sweet card for Easter of course, then in first picture a whole big stack of fat quarters that are wonderful colors, a package of Hershey's miniatures candies, (how did you know that's what i buy all the time -absolutely my favorites), 2 darling pot holders, and the 2nd picture is a close up of the cutest fat quarter i've ever seen, a rear view of a fat lady (which kinda looks like me from the back), so funny - and it says "Love those fat quarters". hey whoever you are, thank you so much. i just hope my angelee likes what i send her as much as i like and appreciate what you send me.

WOw chew!!! Thats really pretty!

Chele 03-27-2010 04:04 PM

Always such cute gifts and thoughtful angels. I adore the paper pieced Easter blocks, Ethel! You are so talented!

It's so refreshing to see we're a "family of angels and angelees" and we can express ourselves, come clean, forgive, laugh, rejoice, kick ourselves in the rear, commiserate, bicker like sisters, squeal with joy, etc. Now that's true friendship. I think we cover it all!

What a nice poem, and it fits our angel swap so perfectly. Did you find it or are you a creative soul? You are getting quite a collection of blocks!

laparshall 03-27-2010 04:20 PM

Nothing like seeing some great gifts received from some great angels to take our minds off our troubles.
Karielt—I have that needle threader and I absolutely love it. Very nice Easter block too and what a beautiful card you received. My Angel makes wonderful cards too, I love seeing them.
Dojo: great FQ’s and fun springy pot holders.

Chewboo: Happy Birthday! I love that stack and wack gifts. Those brights are right up my alley. Great thread too, that looks like such a fun project.

Ducky 03-27-2010 04:21 PM

Trupeach knows that the Ducky loves her and just enjoys giving her a hard time. ***though, she is ornery***

montanaquilter 03-27-2010 04:26 PM

what nice gifts everyone has been receiving!! love the colorful fq's too!! everything you two received looks so fun--enjoy!!

sewnsewer2 03-27-2010 04:46 PM

Wow, your angels put a lot of thought into sending your goodies!

brushandthimble 03-27-2010 05:45 PM

Great gifts from all the Angels to their Angelees!

Kwhite, thank you for orgainizing this, it is nice to see what everone gets, and I love sending to my Angelee.

I again got dropped from the threads, had 5 pages to get caught up on.

SulaBug 03-27-2010 05:45 PM

OMG!! :D Our wonderful Secret Quilt Angels sure came through today!! Everyone's gifts are so wonderful. I especially LOVE the FQ that says, " I Love FQ's". I am sure each one of us would love to know where that one came from!!
Have a Blessed Day Angels!!
:D :D :D :D

wvdek 03-27-2010 06:55 PM

Wonderful that your days were uplifted by your SQA's. So many wonderful gits and goodies. Bet that choclate doesn't stay around long. :lol:

Everyday when I look at the goodies my SQA has sent, it makes me smile and I remeber to say a prayer for her. If I never receive another thing, she has a special place in my heart.

Now to get busy and get April's goodies together and sent to mine.

dojo36 03-27-2010 07:04 PM

I feel the same way. When the end of the year gets here and we all find out who our angels are, i want to make something special to send to mine, i already have something in mind. it's been very exciting giving and receiving. i just wish my angelee was better and not having so many problems so she could enjoy all this more. so everybody have a very Happy Easter, and let's all just remember the reason for this holiday.
God Bless

STAR 03-27-2010 09:17 PM

I love that when I leave the house I can hear my little windchime ringing, I hung it up on the garage, there is a small hook, I think for a plant. But my chime fits just right!

kwhite 03-28-2010 07:42 AM

Ok ladies. I need your advice. I know some of you have set up a way to chat back and forth betweent Angel and Angelee without letting the Angelee know who the Angel is. Can you explain how you did this (without my involvement. Thank you) so that others can do so as well?

Barbm 03-28-2010 09:21 AM

my crazy SQA set up a yahoo account- using secret quilt angel in the name. First email I got- I was SURPRISED! and shocked and scared. She/he probably got my email addy from the mass email you sent out asking we had contact from our angels. After a moment of "stalker" crossed my mind, I realized I just had a internet savvy angel.

I have a smart angel. Now I get frequent emails to say hi and how is my day going. Always brings a smile. We are playing a game to see if 1) she/he can keep their identity a secret and 2) I try to ask questions to figure out my SQA. I hate having secrets kept from me. I am losing this game terribly.

Love my SQA!

KGoodhand 03-28-2010 09:47 AM

I wanted to let me SQA know that I have not forgotten about Easter, I am planning on sending something out on Monday or Tuesday! So I am sorry that you may get it late!! Oh well, it is the thought that counts right?!?! You are in my thoughts lots!!

Hello to all, been laid up had cancel out at the "quilt-in" I had been looking forward to. but My Angel must have known I was needing a cheer-up. Last week she sent me the Moda charm pack, very,very nice. Then this week I recieved an Easter basket, first one since I was 10. So thank you so very much for all the extra special goodies. :D I hope I attach the pics correctly......

I went in and made a seperate email account with my email carrier. Most carriers allow you to have more than one screen name. My angelee gave her email in the info that was sent to me when were assigned our angels.

sandpat 03-28-2010 03:58 PM

I set up a new account with one of the free email servers. I can't say which one..my angelee might figure it out...I got her email from somewhere....can't recall how I figured that one out. But, no...I'm not a stalker.

Be sure when you set up the new account that you DON'T put your name in where it says "Your name"....you need to put Secret Angel or something like that or else your name will show up when you send them an email. Just set it up, then send yourself a test email before you send to your angel so you can make sure nothing about you shows up.

THANK YOU, THANK YOU SQA! Look what I just got in the mail from my SQA. I just love it all. That bag is just the cutest fabric!

There is a pattern for a quilt/runner & fabric with it, a bag, embroidery floss (beautiful colors) and more fabric! Also a cute Happy Anniversary card with skunks on it as today is our wedding anniversary. Perfect timing SAQ.

Thank you again.
