Wow, that WAS slow--but I'm relieved to hear it arrived.  Better late than never, right?  That must be the philosophy your mailman uses.  Sheesh! 

Anyway, glad you like the bag.  I have fun making those.

Thea, 

I forgot to say that your belated gift is on its way from me.  you should have it within a few days.  I'm very sorry to be late!!! NOT a good example to be setting for the group.  For what it's worth, this is my first late one since the Jan 4 that I just literally did not have time to do when the group was FIRST starting up.

hi ladies. i sure hope this gets posted. i have been having so many issues with trying to get on here.  well been trying since april... let qca know many times so hopefully now they finally got it fixed . well i did receive my surprises.. and they were very much surprises for me too. my son brought them to me while i was in the hospital . they cheered me up .greatly. i had forgotten about that too. i have had so many health issues and been in and out of the hospital so much this past year. i am praying i make it the rest of the year without going in. even though i will be needing some surgeries trying to put them off till after the holidays.

i want to thank all the ladies that sent me the surprises.. i received them even though i wasnt sure what some items were. LOL

how do i add pictures of them on here.???

i would like to get in some swaps if i still can . hope this gets posted and i have missed everyone here too

I just discovered that, for some unknown reason, all the messages from this group have been going into my spam filter!  I am sure it must be something I accidently did......  Anyway, glad to find you all again and see that fun stuff has been going on while I wasn't looking!!!

I got the most wonderful surprise in my mailbox. What a treat to end a long, crazy holiday weekend. It is a bit early, but I don't mind at all!!!  :)

Thank you Yvonne!!!  This little mouse pin cushion / thread holder is **adorable**. DH and I both noticed the Hawaiian fabric on the zipper pouch right away- love it!!  Everything is great!  Thank you so very much!! :) I

wish I'd gotten a better angle on this photo, but you all get the idea.  The pink mouse is a pincushion and his tail is a bendable wire thread holder. The cup is a thread catcher. And a cute wall hanging pattern behind.

Thanks to both Sukochi and Mimi for extending my birthday a few days!  Yesterday I received a lovely package from Sukochi--a fiber postcard, bookmark, a kit to make a Kleenex box cover, a pen and fabric.  Then today a BIG box showed up from Mimi.  Wowsers!   Too many items to name, all in a wonderful basket she made--with lots of pockets and each pocket was stuffed with goodies.  I'm going to try to post photos, but haven't had much luck in the past...we'll see how it goes. 

 aha!  It worked!  These are the goodies from Mimi!  Thanks, Mimi!!!  You certainly know how to spoil a gal!

Now to see if I can find where the photo of Sukochi's pressies went.  Hmm!   Okay.  Weird.  I got Sukochi's photo on the top, even though it was the 2nd one I posted...but HEY!  LOooookeee!  I can post photos!!!  

Success.  

Thanks, Sukochi, for the goodies.  I especially love the cover for the Kleenex box!

So glad you like all your presents.  Hope your birthday was wonderful. I made the little basket at my LQS.  It's a Tool-rific.  First time I ever sewed on plastic.  Hope you can find lots of things to keep in it so you are super organized while you quilt.  <<<Hugs>>>

You have one more on the way, Yvonne.  I don't know why it's taking so long.  I mailed it priority mail before I mailed by Secret Santa (which was first class) and the secret santa already arrived yesterday.  I'm sorry it's late.  Know that there's one more on the way.  Great job Sukochi and Mimi!!

StefiKay, I received my beautiful surprise today.  Oh my, I just love the batik pack and have the perfect purse pattern to make with them.  Also, am addicted to the Flexion pens, so another one is always welcome.  And pins, can you ever have enough pins??  Thank you so much.

And just to let you know I mailed your surprise yesterday thinking it was in plenty of time and the PO told me it would take 2 to 3 weeks and we cannot get tracking numbers for Canadian packages.  well, we can, but it will only trace as far as CAlifornia so what good is that.  So someday, you too, will get a surprise:)

Carolyn what a nice gift surprise.  All the gifts are so nice.  That mouse is cute and the little basket & pouch.  I love snowmen too.  I hope you have a Happy Birthday.

Happy birthday, Yvonne. The fiber on that post card is a mm paper towel painted with water color paints. Who knew you could paint on paper toweling. Glad you had such a good birthday. Mimi rocks at birthdays!
