Comment: Thank you so much for the lovely towels. The light colored one is the same towel I sent to my partner! Great minds... Your teapot card is so pretty, I need to find a way to display it. I enjoyed reading about your family and Thanksgiving traditions. Thanks again for the wonderful swap.
Response: You're welcome! I've been thinking of taking one of the teapot cards and framing it some how. It's funny how you sent the same towel! Have a lovely Thanksgiving and thanks for being such a great partner! Thanks for the heart!!

Comment: What a wonderful doll. I love her. She is perfect! the fabric totally told the story and the beads were the perfect embellishment. I have never seen that face before either. Did you make the mold? Thank you so much for making her for me, I hope we can be partners again. Bonnie
Response: You're welcome. I didn't make the mold...wish I was that talented. It is a discontinued mold that I got quite some time ago. Hopefully our paths will cross again! Thanks for the heart!
Comment: So profile based! Thank you for taking the time to really find things I would love. I like how you tagged each gift and I will probably do something similar for my swaps from now on. I absolutely adore the charms you included for mothers day.
Response: I had lots of fun putting this package together. We have similar interests. Thanks so much for the heart and have a wonderful Mother's Day!
Comment: Love this color scheme, the glittery roof, and especially the snowflakes. I looked but didn't find any snowflakes for my house, so loved that you added them to the one you made for me. Thanks!
Response: I think this was my favorite. I found the snowflake buttons at JoAnns. Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Postmark was one day late but the cards are beautiful. I especially like the one from space. That's my kind of nightlife too. Thanks.
Response: I'm glad that you liked the postcard. I mailed the envelope on the correct day. However the post office was closed. I have the receipt from the post office kiosk showing the date I mailed it. If you would like a copy, I will send it. Things don't get postmarked until the next business day. Thanks so much for the heart!
Comment: Hi Connie, I love the owl stuff you sent to me. The bag is lovely as well as the postcard. But that mirror is awesome. It will go on my desk at school. The kids are always asking me for a mirror and they will love this one! Thanks again for everything. Very thoughtful!!
Response: Your very welcome! I love love love owls so had fun choosing things for you. What a joy that the children will enjoy the mirror!
Comment: Connie: Thanks a bunch for the beautiful fabric and the lovely note. Yes! The weather here in Alabama is HOT but I guess I'm used to it after all these years. The postcards are now hanging on my refrigerator for the entire family to enjoy. I hope the treat you receive will be as nice as mine was!
Response: You're welcome! I hope you can use the fabric. I enjoy postcards so hope your family likes them. Thanks for the heart!

Response: I'm happy that you like what I sent. We have a lot of similar interests, so it was fun to choose for you! Thanks so much for the heart!!
Comment: A wonderful Christmas package! I love the card! All of the gifts were nicely wrapped. All gifts were things I like. A pretty large spiral notebook; a zippered fabric pouch filled with a myriad of colored sewing floss; a precious wooden snowman ornament and a set of the most endearing cat motif pillowcases. The cats have a Laurel Burch look to them. I love them!! Thank you so much and Merry Christmas!
Response: I'm happy you liked the things I sent. The pillowcases are made from Laurel Burch fabric. It's a discontinued line of fabric that I was able to purchase at a quilting fabric shop that has since closed. Have a lovely Christmas! Thanks for the heart!
Comment: I love the fabric! The blue with anchors is needed, trying to get enought of military looking fabric to make one whole quilt top. Greens and reds are my favorite colors. You chose excellent fabric colors and patterns! Thank You
Response: I'm glad that you like the fabric I sent. I love the anchor pattern, also. Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Your choice of fabric was great! Love the poke-a-dots, has always been a favorite pattern of mine, after all I came out of those late 50's and 60's, we even had a song about them. And the other two fabrics go along with them so well, they even look like dots. Thank You for your exceptional swap package!
Response: I'm with you regarding polka dots. They are my favorite. I was raised in the 50s/60s myself! Thanks so much for the heart!
Comment: Love, love, love all of the fabric and was very thrilled with the pattern. Just picked up some special fabric to make a bag for my shopping buddie, so the treat arrived just in time and wasn't that thoughtful of you to choose a pattern for my treat. May you receive many blessings for this over stuff package, all the fabric will be used and I'm very grateful for your gift. Hearts and Hugs
Response: You're very welcome! I want to thank you for making quilts for the homeless! It is my pleasure to send the extra fabric for your mission in life. Isn't the bag pattern fun! I'm happy that you will be able to use it. Thanks a bunch for the heart!!

Comment: Thank you Connie for the wonderful blue fabric. And for the extras :) I have never used piping before. But I a purse pattern that calls for it, and now I think I will give it a whirl. Thank you.
Response: You're welcome! I think you will like piping. It's rather easy to use and I think it makes lot's of projects look better and more "finished". Have fun learning! Thank you for the heart! Connie

Comment: Oh, Dear Connie! You made my gloomy rainy day brighter. Not only did you meet the requirements, you sent something that I will treasure forever!!!! You know what it is. I can't believe someone threw it in the trash, I guess its true what they say "One man's trash is another ones treasure". I love the FQ's, too. I even think the front of the note card is precious, you can be my partner anytime!
Thanks a million.

Response: You're welcome Kylie! The active volcanoes on the west coast of mainland USA are part of what's called the Circle of Fire. This huge circle goes north through Alaska, around Japan, south into the South Pacific (not sure how far south) and back up the west coast of the USA. We learn so much through postcards! Thanks so much for the heart!
Comment: Great postcard. My partner exclaimed that he has been there! Many years ago my partner was part of a team that conducted sonar trials on an Australian naval vessel. They spent many an hour on exercises in the Sound area. Its very pretty, thanks for this post card and the chance to hear another story from my other half :)

Response: I'm glad you liked the socks! I wanted 'em. There was only one pair! What a sacrifice! ;-) So...have you thought of dancing the "Nutcracker" while watching "It's A Wonderful Life"? What a visual that is!
Comment: HI CONNIE, I'M SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO SORRY. THIS IS THE FIRST TIME I FORGET TO RATE SOMEONE BECAUSE I USUALLY RATE RIGHT AFTER I OPEN MY MAIL. I WISH I COULD GIVE YOU FIVE HEARTS TO MAKE IT UP TO YOU. I LOVED THE SOCKS AND REALLY APPRECIATE THE STAMPS. BIG HUGS, LORRAINE

Comment: Thanks so much for the beautiful socks in the autumn colors.Such nice warm socks and it's pretty cold here already. The chocolate is my favorite. I may just dance in my new socks while I eat chocolate. But the best is the fairy card from Ireland. my grandmother and grandfather came from Ireland to the US and I have finally touched something that came from the ground they once were once on. Everything is beautiful and I thank you so much love and peace mary
