    Dear, dear k3n sent me a squishy with the most beautiful quilt. I got teary, 'cause it says "Liberty, Equality and Sisterhood" on it. I LOVE all things French, and she nailed it! My house is decorated with French scenes, and this fits perfectly!

    AND she sent the most beautiful Dutch fabric with matching border fabric, a couple of really neat French Quilting and Decorating magazines and of course goodies for all the critters, including the birds, along with other goodies for me.

    K, Guinness immediately grabbed the stuffed key-ring kitty! I had to snatch it back from her before it got all slobbery!

    I can't thank her enough! What good friends I've made here on the board, and I am VERY appreciative. SISTERHOOD!!!! :P :P :P

    Goodies for everyone! Look at that beautiful fabric and border fabric!

    I keep thinking of the song "Sisters" from White Christmas! It's stuck in my head (in a good way, 'cause I love Rosemary Clooney!) Enjoy!

    Way to go! Nice quilt and wonderful goodies, too.
    White Christmas is one of my favorite all time movies. I think I know the lines by heart. I decorate the tree while 'watching' and singing to it. Not much longer.

    I love the quilt, this forum makes you feel like part of a big family. I am glad to be a member.

    You said that you liked Rosemary Clooney, she is from here. We just had the Rosemary Clooney festival in Sept. it rained the whole weekend. They have it every year. Her brother Nick lives in Augusta, about 19 miles from here.

    Sandy, squishies are soft packages of fabric, or a little quilt that someone sends you in the mail. Because it's fabric, it's soft and you can "squish" it, kinda like Mr. Whipple squeezed the Charmin! :mrgreen:

    A firmie is a package that has a book, or magazine in it. It obviously doesn't squish.

    If you get a mixed bag (both fabric and books or other gifty things) you can decide whether you want to call it a squishy or a firmie!

    They are really fun to get, and most of the time are a complete surprise to the recipient.

    Some people call fabric they have ordered and receive in the mail squishies, but most of us just refer to it as "look what I ordered!"

    Here's wishing you lots and lots of squishies!
