Aliquilt hope you feel better soon. The crud that is going around this year is something awful. I never get sick and I got it too... Chris

..WE never get sick at my house either (other than my fibro pain Frown ) and we all got 1.5 days of crud ... one at time of course .. I think DGS brought it from school and DNSIL brought it from work .. I captured from them.

Aliquilt, hope you get better soon. This has been a really rough winter for my fibro pain. We haven't had much in the way of snow but a lot of cold, cold rain which always makes me hurt worse. To top it all off, I have a lot of sewing that I have to get done today and tomorrow. I just found out that I am getting company 4 days early and need to "neaten" my house.

I just got home from work and guess what's here ..... THE BOX!!!!!!!!! Smile I am so excited, I will go through it tonight and tomorrow and get it mailed out as soon as I can.
Mar 19, 2013, 01:42 PM
Huntres9
OK lets see if I can get this picture on here, I had fun with the box what a lot of items to choose from, I took:
A case with 18 Madeira thread from MedeMo
Embroidered Pot holders and a dish towel from MedeMo
A Easy Angle from Alison (sorry no HGTV name on bag.

Everything is perfect and I so needed the pot holders, the thread is such a lucky chance to get and I always need help with my angles. Thank you ladies for your items.

Now to get mine in and mail out the package.


Mar 20, 2013, 07:22 PM

Was the Easy Angle in the give & take bag? Those things won't have a name on them.

Glad you found some things you could use... Chris
Mar 20, 2013, 09:07 PM
Huntres9
No it wasn't in the give & take bag, it was an item by itself.

The box is on it's way as of this morning .... watch your mailbox's!
Mar 21, 2013, 07:36 AM
Aliquilt
It's fun to hear the goodies all are getting, better for the pics but for some reason I've never successfully been able to post a pic Frown Easy angle was from me...Aliquilt, didn't think to write my board name on the label. For some reason, I had several, guess I bought them and forgot about them, still have yet to master how to use it.

Yep, it is in the Land of Lincoln. Thank you Huntres9 for your speedy delivery. Now for the surprises - literally as I haven't opened it yet. The Box and I will be headed into my sewing studio midday to meet each other. And Monday, at the latest, it will hit the road again.

The wonderful Traveling Box is on its way - somewhere else. I will be sharing the tracking number with cksvett so she will know.
I picked some fabrics - toile and sewing theme - and a Purses pattern (which I'm using my swapped hexies on.) Also two things from the Exchange Bag. So thanks Maggie and Sue B and everyone for making this fun.

What a great day this has turned out to be, in spite of snow flurries and cold, cold weather.
The box came this afternoon. Usually our mail doesn't come until 3:30 or 4:00 but it was here at 1:00 today. And such a lot of goodies.

Here is what I am keeping from the box

5 Batik FQ's from PatV82
Cupcake Pincushion by Cindy Taylor Oates with 2 pieces of fabric from Huntres9
Cat Faces quilt pattern from Auntie Reba
2 cuts of fabrics, one a yard of cat fabric, 1 a yard plus of large florals from MedeMo

From the exchange bag, a tape measure, Wonder tape (no name on these) and a seam gauge from PatV8s.

The box will be on its way tomorrow afternoon or Wednesday morning.

Here is the picure of my goodies.

WOW, the box is really moving. Imagine it will slow down shortly as the distances will grow!

Glad everone is finding items they can use.

I hadn't intended that the items in the "Give & Take" bag needed to be labeled as to who had put them in the bag. That was meant to be for little items that you just wanted to get rid of in hopes that someone else could use them. So it could grow, but neve should have less than 10 items in it... Chris

I love the cat fabric. I plan to make a purse with it. I think my purse will be really cute.

Some of the items in the "give and take" bag were labeled with a name, most were not.

I live in Tennessee. The box will soon be on its way to.......

Huntres9-2 pieces of coordinating fabric
PatV82-package of self threading needles

Enjoy those open eye embroidery needles. They seem to be a secret - hardly any quilt shops carry them. But they are awesome. I rarely use anything else. Just finished over 300 hexies with one needle; I can thread in low light, moving car, etc.. And even with trifocals, I need all the help I can get.
Wasn't it fun to open the box and see all the goodies? Hope I get to be a part of a TB again.

Great picks. The box sure has had some wonderful items in it.

Open-eye embroidery needed? Um I'll have to research that one. Haven't heard of them (that I remember).

So did you send the box on to me now ?
