chocolate?   ... there was chocolate? ...

Betty ... you was right to be all sneaky about that ... as we all just might have snuck in there and snagged it while you wasn't looking ... ... lol ...

maybe my hubby will remember how much I might like a couple of pieces of dark chocolate fudge from the local candymaker ...  

hmmmmmmmm ... maybe I'd best go drop him a hint ...

The valentines are sure looking fine ...

and I got mine!!!!!!

Carol ... thank you so much for the lovely gifts!!! The fat quarters are such a rich shade of burnt orange ... I just love em!   ... and you were so thoughtful to send the needle threaders ... with my vision, I sure need them and the last one I had pulled apart awhile back and I had not replaced it ... these look much more durable ...   ... I had never seen one of those Kwik Klip aides for pin basting ... looks very handy and will save a lot of wear and tear on the fingers ... ... such a pretty handmade brocade heart, a mini-pincushion just the right size to use for my hand needle (which I am always misplacing otherwise) ... ... all wrapped up with a lovely card and tied with a pretty red ribbon ... thank you for being my Secret Valentine! 

... and here are the piccies for everyone to enjoy ...

Cindy and Gerda ... thank you for running this wonderful swap for all of us!

:) Pat

Sherry, so glad you got your package and you enjoying it! It was fun picking out some things for you.... I found those darling little scissors and just had to get them for you.... I was really trying to finish your scrappy strings to send just one package, but it didn't happen, so those will go out this next week, I hope.

Gerda and Cindy.. thanks for putting this swap together.

Good Morning Debbieann
I see it is only you and I plus a few guests on here at the moment (6.44 am here)What time is it with you?

I'm sorry to hear you haven't received your St. Valentine's gift yet, I'm sure it's on it's way. The person I sent my gift to hasn't posted that it has been received yet either. I'm hoping both gifts are just on a slow train and will be with you and her very soon..........

Speak to you soon, here or PM. Take care and keep resting your pesky leg, how is it this morning?

Sue xx

Thank you , thank you Nola...........................

Your lovely Valentine parcel arrived today. The ladies were so curious at the post office, not the usual shape of quilty things I receive......

I got the sweetest fq of kitties, they are so pretty it will be hard to cut.lol

I also got an aqua blue swirly fq, gorgeous. Then a whole bunch of little treasures - a spool of thread, a marking pen, flower head pins and the most precious floral spool-pincushion. Handmade by Nola. I must tell you it was the first thing Ms. Miai tried to lay claim to. kitties........

Again thanks so much....I just love them....Here is a pic of the collection.


almost forgot the tiny little kitty greeting card such an oldfashioned sweety.

Debbieann-
I told you that good things come to those who wait!! That was definitely worth the wait... even if it does have kitties on the FQ!!
Hope that your leg will be fully healed in a short time... and by the way, when you go for your spinal MRI, you might want to remind them where your "spine" is. Don't want a repeat of your last episode.

Take care,
Midge W

I'm SO glad the pkg. finally got there, DebbieAnn!  And happy that you like everything.  The store I shopped at was really limited in cute notions, but you'd mentioned that you needed a marking pen, and everyone who quilts seems to need pins often!  The pincushion was such fun to make - the idea is that you can stick in in the top of the spool of thread and have it handy when you're doing hand-sewing (like I do in the evenings when the rest of the gang is glued to the TV!)  Worst thing was, I had to buy a whole bag of about 50 golf tees, to get one to use on the pincushion!  I'd have begged one from my golfing neighbor, but he was in Florida when I was making that!  But they weren't expensive, so I guess when I get bored I'll make up lots of little pincushions!

Sorry your pkg. was so late, but at least it got there OK.  And I'm happy that you like the FQs!  I loved the blue piece and the kitties were so cute - just begging me to buy them!

Hey, Nola, those golf tees make great noses for snowmen!! That's if you make stuffed snowmen for decoration. Just a thought. Mind you, if you want to get rid of some, I'll send you some $$ for a few - saves me buying a whole bag! Let me know!

LOL!  DebbieAnn, I'm much more of a "dog person", but I don't dislike cats!  We have quite a few at the barn - a big fluffy long-haired butterscotch 'n white one, several black ones, and a couple calicos.  We used to have two housecats - John had a huge butterscotch 'n white one, and I had a much smaller all white cat - but then John got his Sheltie and she hated cats.  My little Mikki love them - he was never sure if he was a cat or if the cats were dogs - never had a problem with him, but the Sheltie wouldn't tolerate the cats, so the cats lived on the big enclosed front porch.  They were happy out there with 11 windows to look out of, an old sofa to sleep on, etc.  Don't have any cats in the house now because I'm not sure what the beagle and the two crazy mixed-breed dogs would do.  My grandgirls love the barn cats tho'

Gerda, when I send that bag of "corners" and scraps to you I'll toss in a handful of golf tees - no need to pay me for them.  I think that whole big bag was only a couple dollars and I'll NEVER use up all of them.  That's a great idea tho' of using them for snowmen noses! 

Nola
