Comment: Thanks! I'm using your block in my quilt, even if it is slightly wrong, the fabrics are beautiful! Thanks for resending! I think I'll swap your block out for some of the ones that aren't my taste!
Response: Thank you so much! I just put two more blocks in the mail to you. My life is so darn crazy these days, I thought I got the instruction correct, but no..I didn't! I truly appreciate your kindness. Thank you.
Comment: OMG what a package! I opened it up and saw gifts for all of the kiddos! I mean wowsiers....this is more that I ever expected! I figured you would just pick one pet! Since they are all wrapped, I won't undo until Christmas, so that I will have something under the tree. Christmas is never much for us around here, so it will be a blast watching the kiddos open their presents. Thanks so much! Have a great Christmas!
Response: Oh I'm so glad!!! Christmas at our house is sorted centered around our kitties. So,I'm glad to bring cheer to you and yours! Merry Christmas

Comment: very nice package please next time do let me know what's going to be shipped late.. some crabby pants might have given a three not me I don't have time for that kind of stuff... I was just glad to get my lovely little package... debating whether I want to paint my gnome into a zombie or not
Comment: DeeDee--I love your lil' bird! He's a delightful patchwork quilt in miniature who should be able to sing delightfully if his song matches his beauty! Thank you for something so clever to hang somewhere in my art room!
Comment: DeeDee, WOW, can't thank you enough for all the goodies. The wind spiral is perfect. I just have the spot. The lime green gloves are perfect for gardening since I am always digging in the dirt when the pain in my body behaves. The notepads will definitely come in handy. I have a daughter named DeeDee, her birth name was Deanne, all her friends call her Dee. Happy swapping, Shirley
Comment: Hi DeeDee I received my parcel today. You did great with the theme. The post it notes are so bright and cherry. The notepad will come in handy on the fridge for a grocery list. Hope we swap again sometime. Pat
Comment: Thanks for the beautiful bag! I needed a nice looking shopping bag. The stores in this town don't give out bags with purchases anymore. So I immediately went to Michaels and filled it up with sale items!
Comment: Thankyou DeeDee for the lovely handmade cat tote bag, it is beautiful I love the colours and the ctas. If I could give you more hearts, I would. The bag is so nice, thankyou DeeDee for the nice note, love jennifer.
Comment: I just love the Christmas cards you made for me! I have already started doing my cards, and I know just the people who will enjoy these. I noticed that you are learning to tat. I wish I was close by to assist you. If you have questions, please feel free to get in touch. Thank you for a wonderful swap!
Comment: WOW! I can't believe that you sewed this!! Coming from someone who wants to learn to sew but is too intimidated by a machine, I'm sooo impressed! I LOVE the apron, it is so pretty and actually matches my kitchen colors. It will hang on my key rack whenever I'm not using it. Also, the little purse that you made me is my new business card wallet! I definitely needed a new one, and this will be great! Thanks SO much!!
Comment: What a brilliant cuff! I often leave the house without any pockets and it is sometimes a drag to have to bring a bag just for keys and some change. This cuff is the answer to my problem, and just my colours too! Thank you.
Response: awesome! I find mine comes in handy all the time. Thank you for the heart!
Comment: Thank you so much for sending them as early as you did, my other one is still coming, and Vday is only two days away! lol I only made the ones I sent for this swap, so my honey will just have to be patient! (I'm pretty sure he won't even know it's coming, anyways!) Thank you for your gorgeous cards! I plan on sending him the purple one. I LOVE how you put the white liner inside it, I never would have thought of that! He loves polka dots, so it will be PERFECT! Thanks for hosting!
Response: You are welcome! I hope your Valentines Day was wonderful.
Comment: Oh my! Thank-you so much!! The dotee is just wonderful as is everything else you sent me! I have already shared alot of it with some of the residents in the group home where I work! Some of the ladies are now looking forward to sewing with the fabrics and trims! Thank-you,thank-you,thank-you!
Response: So glad you liked everything and can just it! Happy Holidays
Comment: Ohmygoodness- I opened my gifts this morning, I LOVE THEM! Where ever did you find Raccoon fabric??? And my pendant, and the spinning wheel stitch markers- this is all so sweet and perfect! I've recently made marshmallows, so we're going thru the cocoa mix fast... THANK YOU!
Comment: Dee Dee! OMG this is such a cool set for holiday cooking. I love aprons ( how did you know?) and it's not on my profile. That oven mitt will work wonders for preserving my fingers. You really made me smile and get a hundred hearts!
Response: whew! I'm so glad you like what I made and sent! And it was cool to get those placemats and napkins a cool new life as they were not a complete set and now they are again!
Comment: I LOVE my apron. It is amazing - I would not have thought to pair the two colors you picked, but they went together perfectly. And the length is just great! Thanks so much for putting together such an awesome swap, and being totally on the ball about everything!
Response: Thank you! I took a chance with the pattern/color mix. I usually don't do mixes like that one. I think I'll do more.
Comment: thank you so much! I liked the purple theme a lot, and I absolutely LOVE the pattern!!! that is such an awesome vintage dress, I will be making it for next summer!
Response: So, glad you liked the package. The pattern in one of my favorites. It is a vintage reproduction...with sizing for a woman of today. It also alters really nicely if you need a smaller size. Easy to sew as well!
Comment: #1 that bank is the best!! So original and fun!!! Its on prominent display. #2 I am crazy jealous of your neighbor. Mine suck. Tell him to keep at it! <3
Response: Thank you for the heart! I'm so glad you like the bank!Yeah, he's a great neighbor and fantastic dancer. He and his 2 partners (long story) have 14 pug dogs as well. All rescued I feel lucky to have them as neighbors. I tried to convince him to send in another video. I think he'd be super on Drag Race.
Comment: nice card and yes we got each other again hahaha
Response: Hi I think there might be confusion. I haven't sent out my bit o'green cards yet. The bear card was a green card and I think that is where the confusion might be setting in. Either way, I'm glad you like it! :)
Comment: Thanks so much for the lovely valentines! The hearts were so pretty - it was so fun to open them! and I love the stuffers - I could really tell that you looked at my profile to see what I might like. I particularly like the metal heart charm - haven't seen that one before!
Response: I'm so glad you liked what I sent. The metal heart charm I go a few years ago. I think they were hat tack pins???
Comment: OMG!!!!! I just love both. Thank you SO much. Wish I could give you multiple stars as it is so nice. You did a beautiful job on making them and I can hardly wait to put my knitting project into the bag plus my knitting supplies into the carrie. MANY MANY thanks.
Response: Elyse- I 'm so glad you like them. The small carry roll is on the short side, because I thought of it going in the bag. It might be good for tools, etc. I also only knit socks...so Double pointed would fit in there as well. Again thank you for the comment! Happy Knitting!
Comment: Thanks so Much! I couldnt resist so i opened the toy and gave it to Lucky and he hasnt stopped freaking out about that catnip bird since. When you get near it he leaps on it to block it from you. LOL.. which is really funny since hes 20 lbs.. He is running all over the house with this thing. Amazing package, Im sure he will love the other packages when i open them, Also I know the dogs will love the treats! :)
Response: Go Lucky! Go Lucky! That makes me smile! I'm so glad he likes the bird. When I make birds and mice, I don't skimp on the nip!
Thank you for the heart! Happy Holidays to you and yours!
Comment: thank you for send the gf mix recipe also! can't wait to try them :)
Response: Thank you for the heart. That mix really is awesome. I don't know about your area, but I can get most of the flours, etc, fairly cheaply and easily. Makes awesome cookies and quick breads (yum...banana bread!) Have fun with it!
Comment: Hello DeeDee,
Thank you so much for fabulous collection of buttions you sent me for the "I Want Buttons for X-mas" Swap. First of all, I love the fabric container you sewed and sent some buttons in. Secondly, I love the vintage buttons that came on the original button card. I can't wait to find some craft projects to utilize your buttons. Thank you for generosity. Happy Holidays to you and your family.
Response: I'm so glad you liked what I sent! My G'ma collected those for years...she was a button nut! And when she passed, years ago, I got her buttons, as I'm a button nut as well. I'm so glad they went to someone who likes them and can use them.
Comment: Gorgeous!! It amazes me how you can do that.. I have tried serveral times and my cards always turn out like crap.. Thank you
Response: Thank you! It was something I've been afraid to try. There are several web sites that have very clear instructions. I'm finding the secret is in the weight of paper I use. The lighter the better.
Comment: You are amazing!Everything is wonderful!Lovely bag(wear it all day already),paisley pouch is my favorite and book cover great surprise.My daughter love her art bag and advent calender-wow,so big and heavy.I can't thank you enough for fulfilling my wishes.
Comment: Thanks for the pretty, patriotic colors. It is so cheery. Talyn
Response: Glad you like it...I didn't think of it being patrotic. I liked the stripes and polka and the fabric of the dishcloth. Now that I think of it...it was a little patriotic. Thank you for the heart.
Comment: Oh wow... if I could give you ten hearts I would. The dogs are sooo excited. The towel bed fits my craft chair perfect. Three chihuahuas sit behind me most of the time and now they have a special cushion. Rocky loves his tubes, they will take him a while. All of the dogs have had a treat and loved them. You are so special for what you have done for them. Thanks
Response: Thank you! Nothing better than happy dogs! The best part about the towel bed is that it washes like a dream and dogs and cats LOVE the feel of it. The tubes are a bit on the heavy side so I figured it would give Mr. Rocky a challenge for a bit. Cool...my record stands with the dog treats. I've never had a dog not love them. Thank you again for your kind words. I can see tails waging!
Comment: I didn't got anything on my blog :-( but I dont wanne give you a bad rate!
if you want you can still visite my blog: http://designsweetest.blogspot.com
Response: Thank you for the rating. I know visited and thought I left a comment on your blog. I'll take another look. Thank you again for the rating and bringing that to my attention.
Just revisted and left a comment. I had trouble with with doing that. So, I hope it sticks. sorry. Cute blog. I do remember stopping by
Comment: Oh my! Thank-you so much!! The wallet is absolutely beautiful! I brought tit to work with me and showed it off.Everybody LOVED it! Thank-you so much for the eyes and ricrac,too! I'm at work on some more dolls right now,actually! I'm so glad your kitty is doing so well! MY old lady cat is CRABBY! We have discovered,though,that she ENJOYS being crabby and complaining-if you listen closely you can hear her purring while she is complaining!
Response: Wow! You got that quick! Cool!
I'm so glad you like the wallet.
Mickeygirl is doing well...she's also does the purring and crabby thing as well. Last night, she caught Gus trying to pull the eyes off her sock doll,she smacked him until he cried. Then took the doll to bed with her. It was funny and cute!
Comment: Wowwy I just love this apron! I love the color, and the style. I am so impressed with your workmanship and did not go un-noticed that you have no exposed seams. Thank you so very much âœ°âœ°âœ°âœ°âœ°
Response: Cool! I'm so glad you like it! Thank you for the heart!
Comment: Thank you so very, very much for an extra special package. I only do cross-stitch and I was surprised to say the least upon opening up your package to me. I absolutely *LOVE* what you made it was as if you knew me due to the Butterflies and Daisy's that I absolutely have a love for since loosing a very good friend of mine to Breast Cancer in 2007. I only wish that I was able to give you many more hearts than only one because I feel that you do well desserve many more hearts as well. Thank You so very, very much for a very wonderful swap.....I was flaked in Round 11 so to get this was a very, very nice surprise. I will only use these as to put something on each corner of a table as they are just too nice to use as Dish Towels and I originally thought that they were Pillow Cases!! Thank You so very, very much as I LOVE what you made for me. Hugs, Lori/Kittychat62
Response: Hi Lori
Thank you for the heart and lovely comment. I think creativity we have is the best when I can bring joy to others with what I create. When I read you profile...I knew what I wanted to do for you. I'm just so glad it made you happy. Go ahead and use the dish towels! They were meant for use! :)
Comment: Thank you for a great package =) So many great beads! Love the Hello Kitty pad, it's got to be the first Hello Kitty item I've kept for myself and not reswapped ;P It's just perfect for small swap notes <3
Response: I'm glad you like the package. I'm really glad the bead went to a good home. They were tried of sitting around in my craft boxes. :)
Comment: DeeDee! Thank you SO MUCH for the beautiful knitted ball toy you made for my cat!! Both my cat Kitten and my sister's cat Cinnamon love it!!! That's some strong catnip in there. :) I also loved reading about your cats--they sound so cute!! :)
Response: That is Oregon Locally grown Kitty Hooch. The best ever. My kitties love it. I'm glad yours do too as well!
Thank you for the heart.
Comment: Dear MrsRemington, Tis By Far the Finest of Swaps You Have Gifted Upon Me! The beautiful cap & bag go wonderfully with my Renne Faire garb. The cap fits perfectly & my hubby says it looks Fantastic on me. I've collected many trinkets & I'm already picking out what I might sew on it. The bag is perfect for holding my cell ph & car keys. (since we do live in the 21rst century) Thank You Sooo Much For This Most Awesomest Swap. I offer you multiple Hearts and many high Fives. :)
Response: Thank you! Your comment made my day. Your profile made it easy for me to know what to sew. I'm glad you can use it. Happy Faire!
Comment: Thank you. Unfortunately it arrived stuck so tightly that I had to pry the lid off with a pair of scissors. UPDATE-The box isn't ruined. With this 100 degree weather that we are having, I am going to leave it out in the sun for a few days to see if the paint will harden. UPDATE - it didn't help. But I appreciate the effort you put into it. 2nd UPDATE 7-26-11 WOW - WHAT A TREAT. The candy jar is so dainty, I love it. I've never had that brand of jelly beans before and let me tell you, after about tthree hours in a metal mail-box in direct sunlight - 105 today - those little babies are YUMMY hot. Thank you for a super treat. Hugs and hearts to you.
Response: I'm so so sorry to hear that.
I'm assuming the box is ruined.
Update-Oh, I'm sorry to hear that...time for the crafting fairy to make this right. :)
Yay! I think this might fall into the "alls well that ends well" department! I hope the jelly babies cool down a bit.
Comment: I don't think we took the swap the same way... Reading the details of the swap, the outside envelope was to be decorated but you included 3 inside for me to use. I love the contents (they went above and beyond) especially the 2 spools of ribbon, so I won't rate you down.
Response: Sorry. I guess I got confused.
I hope you can use what I sent.
