Comment: I like the sparkle outlined fabric kitty (and especially the stitched border), the kitty face outline around my address on the envie, and all the cute kitty themed extras. Thanks for a fun kittylover swap. â™¥
Response: You're so sweet, Jo! Thank you for the compliments and also for the rating.
Comment: Dear Patricia! FINALLY :-) your wonderful swap arrived! Awwww, you made me feel like x-mas today! I love, love, LOVE the tea-wallets you made for me, and it was such a wonderful surprise, that you made two of them :-) The Notebook is so cute and awww, all the sweet things you sent to me! Thank you very, very much! Hope you feel the big hug I send you at this moment :-)
Response: What a huge relief! I can't believe it took over a month to get there but am so happy you love what I sent. Thank you so much for the rating!
Comment: The bookmark is great. Thanks for the fabric, I really like it and will have to come up with a project to use it. I will add the postcard to my collection. It may make me decide to try and get one from every state. Your package made my day happy. Thanks so much!!!!!
Response: Many thanks for the 5â™¥! I'm happy to know that my little piece of mail brightened up your day.
Comment: OMG OMG OMG !!! As you can see, I'm out of words to say how happy I am with the blue bag. I just received it a few minutes ago and FranÃ§ois things it's really funny how excited I am. I really love the fabric you picked to make the pockets. The little owls are just so cute. Thanks for the little zippered pouch you made. I wanted to make one to carry a special set of hooks I have, but I'm going to use the one you made :-D. Also, thanks for the extra fabric and the gum. I'm trying to start a diet and this gum will really help me (keeps the mouth busy so I don't snack as much). Thanks again for having this private swap with me.
Response: Thank you for the excellent rating and for loving what I made for you. I'm really glad that you like those owls.
Comment: Thanks for the pretty star...â˜¼....I love the material in the background. (I think I need to find a way to add it to my Hope journal). And thanks for the stamps and lady bug stickers. These swaps are fun. :-)
Response: Woo-Hoo! Glad it got there today. Thank you for the rating and for liking how I did it. I'm looking forward to the next one too.
Comment: Thank you for my fun egg (I love the flowers punched out of stamps and will have to remember to use that technique in the future). And thanks for the extra goodies you included. This was a fun swap, and I look forward to the next one.
Response: Thanks so much for the excellent rating, even though my paper crafting skills can use some help. I'm glad you liked the punches, that was probably the highlight of my art work.
Comment: Patricia sent me some wonderful handmade tea wallets that I and my friends really love! She also sent me some lovely extras - coffee chocolate which i really am looking forward to trying..A wonderful thoughtful swap... thank you so much!
Response: Sam: thank you for the 5 and the heart. I certainly appreciate the perfect rating and am happy to know that my sewing projects are loved. Enjoy all the coffee chocolates!
Comment: What a wonderful swap you sent me. I love the bag and matching pieces that go with it! Thank you so much and I will treasure it forever! It's so beautiful. And thank you for the extras, too! I'm so excited over this bag!
Response: This was a fun swap for me because I basically made the same thing for you & Jo in different colors. I'm happy that it arrived so fast to your house. Thank you for the 5â™¥!
Comment: Oh Patricia, I don't know where to begin. "What you do best" is awesome! I LOVE my bag with matching zippered pouch and wallet (the blue is so pretty and the birdie print makes me smile). The maps, origami paper and angel stickers will be put to good use. The pen was a nice surprise. I wish I could give you a whole bag full of hearts. â™¥â™¥â™¥ Thank you for a wonderful swap, and for being my friend.
Response: What a sweet thank you message! I'm really glad you like what I created for you and that it got to you all in one piece. Thank you for the 5â™¥ rating and for your friendship!
Comment: I would give a million hearts if I could!!! What an awesome package I just received, WOW!!! Everything in the package is personnalized, so cute and adorable. What a thoughtful swap. I love everything from the teabags to the stickers, and of course, most of all the wonderful quilted tote. I'm still surprised that you were intimidated to send to me. What you did, this gorgeous bag, I could never do anything like this. I touch a little bit of everything, but can't do anything complicated like this. I guess I'm a "basic 101" pro in a lot of things but can't get past that stage in anything. All this to say... THANK YOU for everything. Oh, let's not forget the fabric. I will probably use the fabric that you made the zippered pouch with to take my first try at sewing zipper by making a matching pouch. I will keep hosting this swap because so far I have never been disapointed. I receive amazing swaps all the time. Thank you for being part of it.
Response: Thank you so much for your sweet, kind words and for the awesome rating. I appreciate that more than you'll ever know. I love that kitty fabric and was happy with how your tote bag turned out. Even before partners were assigned I had the blue paisley purchased just waiting to send to you so you were getting it whether we were swap partners or not. I feel so happy knowing that you love what I made and sent to you!
Comment: Hi Patricia! I received your envelope in the mail today & I LOVE the postcards that you've picked our for me! Thank you so much! I really enjoyed exchanging postcards with you & hope to swap again soon!
Response: I'm happy that it showed up today and also that you like the PCs. I got a great swap in the mail today too so it's a happy mail day all over the place! Thanks so much for the rating!
Comment: This is the nicest swap ever! I wish I could give you a big hug right now, thank you so very much. This is a lot of work and it's so nicely done. I just love it and thank you for the extras, too!
Response: Only the best for my sweetest friend! I'm glad it arrived so fast and that you like it, too. I never thought I'd do a journal swap because I have no artistic talents but I was actually sad when it was done. Thank you for the â™¥!
Comment: What a perfect package!! I LOVE the envelope and the purses you made me, they are wonderfull!! And the gelpens and cards will come in handy anytime. Thank you SO much for a wonderfull swap :-)
Response: I'm really happy to know you like what I made and that it arrived safely. Making something small was a challenge but I was happy to do it for you! Many thanks for the rating also.
Comment: I loooooove the package you sent to me! The pencil pouch is perfect, and everything in it was great. The stamp is so cute, the candy is good, and I can't wait to try the hot cocoa (maybe for supper.) Thanks so much for swapping with me. â™¥
Response: Thank you so much for the wonderful rating! I'm always so happy to know my package arrived safely and that you like what I made.
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful cards :-) My son immediatly liked the one with the astronaut (the museum card). You have a beautiful handwriting! I'd love to swap with you again sometime. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
Response: You're so sweet with your compliments and thank you very much for the rating. I'm glad you're happy with what I sent and that it put a smile on your son's face too.
Comment: Thank you!!! I don't even know where to begin. This swap was absolutely amazing! Everything made me so very happy! I really enjoyed reading your letter. Thank you for sharing with me. I love the stickers and the postcards. The twins will be so happy with theirs. I am going to try save my little present for Christmas. And as for the bookmark, it is my new favorite one! I love it! The mushrooms are perfect for me. Thank you so much! You honestly made my day!
Response: WOW - that was really fast service from the USPS. I'm glad it has arrived and that you enjoyed reading my letter. I never know what to enclose in these "flat surprise" swaps so I just sent an assortment. Many thanks for the heart!
Comment: Hi Patricia,
I just came home from a week-end at my elder daughter's house when I got your parcel. It was such a great surprise. The bag is absolutely lovely. And all the other things too. My daughter is crazy about all the sweets. I think I never got such a nice surprise.
Response: Thank you for the wonderful rating and of course for the HEART! I'm so happy to know you like what I made for you and all the sweets too.
Comment: My dear Patricia! Thank you soooo very much for such a wonderful swap! Everything is so wonderful, canÂ´t wait to try the M&MÂ´s and the cupcake towel is sooo cute :-) And Greta smiled when she saw her new scarf and said: "How beautiful" Thank you sooo much for everything for being such a good friend :-)
Response: Once again, I'm glad that you like what I made for you. Thank you so much for the rating and for being w sweet far away friend. The candy corn M&M's are my favorite.
Comment: Hi Patricia! So happy to be swapping with you! I love the pc and sock monkey! Have you been faring ok with all the rain there? I had forgotten you live in CO - it sounds like it has been very scary there lately! We had some fall weather over the weekend and it is nice to have low humidity for awhile! Wishing you all the best! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: Vicky - Thank you for the excellent rating! We're recovering from the floods but last night we had another all night rain storm.
Comment: Thanks for the pretty fall pc! I can't wait for fall to make its way down south. :)
Response: Thanks again for the great rating. I sent for this swap three days after Plain Jane because I wanted you to get happy mail twice instead of all on the same day. It looks like this card traveled quicker though!
Comment: I know this was supposed to be a "plain" pc but my family and I loved it. It looks like it could have been taken at our favorite vacation spot that we have visited for the last 20 years. Thanks for the smile! :)
Response: I'm glad you liked it even though it was nothing but sand to me. It does look like a nice place to relax. Thank you for the rating and of course for the heart too.
Comment: I was sooooo ospoilt, Hannah adores her bag and the goodies inside it, she hasnt put it down once since she got it and the bread cloth is perfect beyond perfect! When I next lay the Shabbat table, I will take a photo of it so you can see how its used and I will treasure it, its the prettiest one I have ever had. The credit card holder is so neat, I love it! Can you tell I am thrilled beyond thrilled???? THANK YOU!!! I love the Hannukah material, I will think of something special for it and will send you photos of the house at Hannukah, I love Hannukah so thank you again!!!!
Response: Thank you so much for the awesome rating and the heart! Reading your comment I can tell how excited you were to receive my package and that really makes me happy. I love to sew and when I make something as pretty as that bread cloth I love sharing it too. I'm really looking forward to seeing it on your table and seeing what you sew out of the fabric. Hugs to you and little Hannah too!
Comment: Yep, I got it. :) We went to Minnesota for a couple of days last week and I had my mail held at the post office. My husband had picked it up when we got back and never told me. Anyhow, it's perfect! Thank you. :)
Response: Thank you for the rating - I appreciate the HEART and glad you liked the card. That's a beautiful place to visit if you ever make it to Colorado.
Comment: Love the card. Two weeks ago we were in Minneapolis and went to a baseball game. Last year we went to one in Cleveland. Maybe one of these years I'll make it to Colorado.
Thanks a bunch.
P.S. Just opened the envelope with the stadium cards. Thanks so much! Now I really want to go to a ballgame there. The winky kitty clip is super cute. If there were more hearts, you'd get em.
Response: Thanks so much for the 5 and the HEART! I'm glad you like everything. Miller Park was beautiful and I hope to see other parks someday too.
Comment: OMGosh!!!!!! What can I possibly say that will do justice to the awesomeness of this swap. First of all the PC selection is wonderful. I love them all...The daffodil pouch with all the lovely goodies is way way way more than I could ever have imagined in a PC swap. This will rank in my top 5 most favorite EVER swaps on SB. (and one of the other 5 was another one from you LOL)....Thank You is so not enough...this made my day, week, and month! â™¥ â™¥ â™¥ â™¥
Response: Grazie, Merci, Danke, Gracias, Asante, and many more thanks for the kind words. You're so easily pleased with my sewing obsession. Glad the post cards were good for you too. I'm always happy to share with someone so sweet â™¥

Response: I saw this rating late yesterday while we were away and it just made my day complete to know how happy you are with everything I sent. I had to wait until I got home to rate you on the computer or it would have taken me forever. I'm really glad that my little box full of love arrived so fast this time. Please let me know when you're in need of anymore of your favorite USA treats, OK? Many thanks for the rating and of course the HEART.

Comment: Dear Patricia, Thank you so much for the wonderful and very generous swap! I was blown away by the amount and variety of hot chocolate packets you sent me!

The small tote you made for my daughter is adorable and perfect for her because she likes the carry her little treasures outside and thank you for the children's book! Thank you very much for swapping with me! :)
Response: Christine you have been a saint to wait so long for this to arrive and then to give me such an awesome rating. I feel bad that the postal service failed the first time so I wanted the second package to be really special. I'm happy now that you have it and also happy to know everything was worth the long wait. Many thanks for the 5 and also the HEART!
Comment: Patricia, thank u extremely much for such a heart warming package. I almost cried to know such a friendly and caring person I knew for these past few weeks. Thank you!!!

Response: What a heart warming rating! Thank you for loving everything and for all the kind words. I think I sent the new "dark side" skittles and wasn't sure if you have tried them yet since they're so new. I'm glad you like it all and now I don't have to worry about Mr. Mailman. I hope you didn't scare him.

The pouch and case are really pretty with the perfect color combination! We are changing our pillow cases tonight too! You are very talented!! Didn't know Pringles had salt&vinegar flav, now we are addicted to it! Can't wait to try the interesting chilli flav choco too! The body butter is my first ever bath&body works item.

Thank you so so much from both of us for your kindness and generosity!! Will write back soon after I come back from my trip. Merry Christmas! =) PS. Would love to see your creations from the fabrics I sent you ;)
Response: Thank you for rating me and for the heart. It would be lovely to show you creations made with fabric you bought in Japan but unfortunately after 8 weeks in transit I'm not holding out much hope of it arriving now. However if I receive from you I will happily raise your rating as I fully believe you sent what you show in your photographs.
Comment: Thank you so much for the most wonderful swap.
We love everything, and we are very exited to get started tasting everyhting ( we had a few tastes already though:))
Thank you very much for going through all of the trouble finding the things for us, we really appreciate it.

And may i know if the hobby lobby is just an empty card . cause there isn't an outlet in Singapore . ï¼žxï¼œ All in all , thanks for the amazing items ! â™¡
Response: Many thanks for the superb rating and the heart. I really appreciate that and am so happy to know you like the package I put together for you. I wish I could send you some of our beautiful snow that is always visible on the mountains. The card is just to show you the size that fits inside the wallet I made for you. Enjoy!
Comment: OMG...I canÂ´t write anything, I am speakless:-) Thank you so very much for such a lovely and thoughtful swap! You made my day with all things you sent to us!
Thsi evening we will try a hot chocolate with the marshmallow bits:-) And I will write you a letter, about Germany, about Greta and the cow and the book, about Jens and the puck and about Rebecca and the grab bag:-) Thank you very, very much, I love all! Would give 100 hearts when I could!
Response: Thank you so much for the wonderful rating and your super-sweet comments. I'm so happy to know that your family loves everything. I would love to learn more about Germany and what all of you think about what I made. I enjoy new sewing challenges so the bag and storybook were very fun to sew. I'm sure yours will arrive here soon, I'll let you know immediately. â™¥
Comment: Oh. My. Goodness!!! What an *amazing* parcel of goodies..thank you SO very, very much! <3 I really hope that the parcel I've sent to you doesn't pale in comparison..thank you ever so much for swapping with me - you're a STAR!
Response: That's the fastest delivery ever! I really hope some of those bars are new and different for you. Many thanks for the HEART!
Comment: Patricia, I received your swap today and I have to say that this is probably the best swap I have ever received! Thank you from the bottom of my heart :o) Everything that was enclosed is so great, I actually put everything back into the box after opening it so I could reopen it and just slowly go through the stuff again (my daughter is now sleeping so I can enjoy it in peace :o) ). Thank you so much for thinking of her too, she grabbed the crayons right away and was inspired to start coloring immediately! I really would have been thrilled to just receive the one beautiful diaper bag, but you sent two! And not only that, you sent the adorable cat items, the US goodies, pouch, tea wallet...I'm so thankful for it all! Everything is wonderful and so much appreciated. I was thinking, that if there was a gold standard applied to swapping, that your swap would be it! :o)
Response: Christine - your kind words make me so happy that we did this swap. I love knowing that you're happy with something I made especially for you so this really means a lot to me. Thank you for the excellent rating and for being such a sweet partner.
Comment: Guess what I got today?? :) I love the postcard!! It is so pretty. Thanks so very much. â™¥â™¥
Response: That only took 10 days to go 850 miles. I should have taken it with me on vacation to MS and hand delivered. I'm happy to know it arrived but will still send the others I promised. Thanks so much for the â™¥
Comment: Wow!! WOW!! WOWWW!!! I am truly humbled by the awesome boxful of goodies that you put together for me :D The bags (all of them!!) are wonderful. I adore the tote and am so jealous of your sewing skills! The teen got first choice of the pouches etc, picked 2 & promptly packed them with makeup etc for a school trip to Belgium. I love the owl, currency, cupcake & black/brights fabrics. The kid squealed in disgust when he saw his boogers but his eyes were dancing with devilment & delight. I shall probably share a choccy bar with Him when we watch Grimm later :D Thank you for the great selection of tea (I had a good giggle at the fact you almost forgot to put them in!!! I'm glad I'm not the only one that does that sort of thing!) Thank you from the bottom of my heart, I am truly touched at the time, care and love that went into creating such a wonderful package of delights. I feel honoured to be able to swap with you.
Response: I'm blushing with embarrassment over all your generous compliments. But am certainly happy to know that you love the treats I chose for you and the tote bag & pouches I made. They seem to be quite popular and come in very handy so I hope they are something you can use for a long, long time. It was very sweet of you to give such an awesome rating but flaking on me and not responding to my messages left me wondering what happened. I hope you love all the nice things you received from people who trusted you.
Comment: What an absolutely wonderful swap from my best friend and you even made two things for 2 of my swapping pals, thank you so very much. I love every single thing in the package, especially the AL one! See you soon!!!
Response: Oh, great that it arrived so quick. Thanks for the rating and the heart. That AL fabric has so many projects just waiting to happen and who else but a true TIDE fan to make something for? I know you'll look so stylish wearing it.
Comment: thank you so very much! I love all your "G"'s - the green bag is gorgeous and the raspberry chocolate will be a great dessert tonight! "Grace" will be my next read - I read another by him just recently.
Response: Hey - what a pleasant surprise this afternoon! Enjoy all the surprises and have a great weekend. Thanks a bunch for the rating and the â™¥.
Comment: Dear Patricia, A lovely package filled with all kinds of stupendous goodies landed in my mailbox and two gorgeous butterfly ATCs. Both are equally beautiful and will be treasured in my collection. I cannot wait to try the yummy teas stored in a neat fabric tea bag. Is that how you would call it? I absolutely adore the postcards and stickers too. The lovely handrawn notecard is so cute. Thank you for telling me about yourself. I love the personal touch. Many lovely hearts....
Response: What a sweet comment you left for me! That is a tea wallet that I made for you and I'm happy to know that you love everything. Thank you for the rating and the HEART!
Comment: Thank you so much for the awesome box of goodies that I got today. I'm so excited about everything! Especially the jelly and the nutrageous. I just can't find that bar anywhere around here! You are so kind! â™¥â™¥â™¥
Response: I'm really happy to know that I picked the right goodies to send you. I appreciate the prompt rating and the heart.
Comment: OH Patricia. This was by far one of the most amazing swap packages I have ever gotten. OMG. The tote bag and all the other smaller items you made are amazing, awesome, beautiful, well-made, adorable and so very thoughtful. And if that wasn't enough - nearly every pocket had little surprise goodies! You lovely letter was so sweet and thoughtful too! I cannot thank you enough and give you nearly enough hearts for such a wonderful package. Honestly I wonder if I have sent a good enough package to you and am off to make a little something more to send you.. thank you so VERY much !! xoxoxoxoxoxoxo
Response: This rating is what keeps me a part of swap-bot. It's not quantity that matters to me but knowing that I've made your day a little nicer after receiving what I created with you in mind. Your kind words and generous rating matter more to me than what I'm going to find in my mailbox at the end of the day but I'm still looking so forward to that too. Thank you for being you, for being a wonderful swap partner and host and for loving what I sent. â™¥
Comment: This package was so amazing! The little pouch is perfect for my crochet hooks, normally they're just laying everywhere! And I adore the mug rug and tea wallet! Awesome colors! Great swap, we should do it again sometime :)
Response: I would be happy to swap with you again anytime. Thank you so much for the rating and the â™¥!
Comment: Thank you so much for this wonderful swap you sent to me! I love everything in it, even the nice item you made for my husband, he really needed that! My Bible Tote is my favorite, followed closely by the Dragonfly Pouch, followed closely by that beautiful little box and well, everything was wonderful, and those beautiful stickers and nice postcards, I'm probably forgetting something, I am at work and can't look right now. Thank you again my dearest friend!
Response: You're so welcome! I kept finding cute dragonflies and of course the sewing projects were things I knew y'all could use. Roll Tide!
Comment: I love everything you sent, it's all so great. This was a wonderful swap and everything is so nice and one item is purrfect and Jenny will get to enjoy that one. Thank you for hosting this wonderful swap and I can't quit laughing about the Japanese envelope.
Response: Thank you for the awesome rating and for being such a sweet friend to me. I'm really happy that you like the assortment of things I sent for you & Jenny and I know she'll get a lot of use out of her new purple scoop.
Comment: Holy Moly where do I begin? This ranks up there with the top 5 bestest swaps ever. First the Penguin bag is awesome...my daughter is going to flip and the matching make-up bag and key chain is so great. (I wanted to give it to her right away, and DH said NO...save it for her birthday. LOL
Now the rest of the stuff is absolutely terrific. The Cat-in-the-Hat Socks are too cute, I love love love the jellyfish "packing material" and the octopus dish is fantastic. You went way over and above. I wish I could give more than 1 heart...so â™¥ x 10. You rock!!! Thank you so much!
Response: Just saying thank you for the rating isn't quite enough either - I feel like you went overboard on the compliments but I really love knowing that I sent something that makes you happy. I love making those tote bags and zippered pouches to match so it's nice to hear how much it's appreciated. Many thanks for all the hearts.
Comment: This deserves MORE than one heart! This is the best package I've ever received from a swap. Everything is so beautiful (and well sewn!) and she even included extras for my children (who just loved them) The jam is FANTASTIC. Thank you so, so much for being such an amazing swapper, and sending so early! I'd be up for a one on one trade with you anytime!
Response: Your comment just makes my day complete. I'm so happy to know that my little package was special for you and the children. Thank you for the generous rating.

Comment: Oh my, I'm totally speechless... I just opened your package and my room is full of that grape fragrance and I feel like in a beautiful dream... ^0^ I'm not even going to talk about swap requirements and how it was waaaaaaay above those... I really want to point out that people like you make swapbot ~ and the world ~ a better place to be... I'm just so moved by your kindness ~ towards a total stranger who happens to suffer from grape candy withdrawal somewhere at the other end of the world ^.^ I cannot thank you enough! I hope my package arrives soon, compared to yours though, it's like the worst package ever ^.^6 Oh and the PURSE!!! It's totally perfect AND it's totally perfect for my vocabulary cards <3 Then people will ask me ~ where did you get this terrific purse? And I'll say ~ you know, there's that awesome lady... Thank you very very much ^0^
Response: What sweet, kind words you have for my simple little box of candies. I'm glad that you love it and hope the grape lasts you a long, long time. It seems unfair that what you crave and can't get in your country is so plentiful here. I'll gladly be your grape connection again. Thank you very much for the rating and the HEART!

You know, I recently got a new car and was talking about how I wish I had a little emergency kit with band aids etc to put in the car and so when I saw the adorable owl pouch with the all the little travel items inside I couldn't have been happier! And the hot pad matches my kitchen so well! It's actually a retro themed kitchen and I have a little mushroom illustration hanging up that matches the cute hot pad you made for me.
You are so awesome!
Thanks again :)

When i was little girl i like one candy what was like that :) Coconut M&M's was something sooooooo YAMMY â™¥ I think i fall in love :) â™¥ Here in Finland we have M&M's, but not flavour of coconut. I love everything where's cocos, so if you wan't you could send it to me ;) Thank you also for little things â™¥ Milla loves that wallet :)
