About Me

Hi all, I’m not a flaker, My dad had a hear attack on July 22nd & I had to accompany my mum to Perth to be with my dad. I have just returned yesterday Sunday 23rd August & have a pile of mail to go through I will rate these over the next week.

All swaps I owe will go out by Monday 31st August I am aware that some are these are very over sue however my family had to come first & I will honor all my swaps as I have never flaked on any one. I understand the ratings most defiantly and am in no way mad for the ratings you have left. I would ask that when you receive my package that you do notify me though so that I know.

Aussie swappers – I will be back soon I have a package (more like a box) to go to Niss in the mail by Friday that should bring everything up to date.

Thanks for your understanding in no way have I intended to let things go by so long as I didn’t know the full extent of my fathers health and we left within hours of receiving the telephone call from his company. I again apologise.

Just in case you ever come back, I want to let people know that you sent something (that I had handmade for you) to someone else in a different swap and said you had made it yourself. Shame on you.

welcome back and hope your dad is feeling better and all is well with you too,.love Glenda

lorri on Aug 16, 2009:

Well it's been since July I''ve been emailing you, (5th July, 12th July, 27th July) and still no reply....... I've also commented here July 16th and July 31st and still haven't heard from you........why? whats happening? Are you ok? Are you there? I see you came online here on 27th July, and I sent 2 emails before that - but you still didn't reply. I hope everything is ok with you, and would appreciate a response. I won't email or ask again. Thanks, Lorri

Bearynice on Aug 15, 2009:

Lauren, where are you , no contact is stresssing us out, what journals do you have

lorri on Jul 31, 2009:

Ok, i'm asking again - has it arrived?? Please let me know, because It should have only taken 2 days, Even if you got it but are not happy or something, please let me know either way... because it sucks if it hasn't arrived. I can't believe how two things I've sent you seem to have gone missing in the mail- Bec watched me post your envelope and I have the postal receipt for it too -not that it will help if you haven't got it yet. Anyway, just a reply would be nice. thanks & Take care xo

Bearynice on Jul 19, 2009:

We have changed the xmas quilt to an angel quilt, where everyone makes 9 appliqued squares and sends them out at the same time . Would you be interested ? We need 3 more
