Comment: Its a beautiful pocket letter and has so many fun goodies in it!......I also like to send extra goodies even if I don't have to.....
I'm ready for fall too, its been a hot summer here and we've had a lot of smoke from fires in
Canada so its difficult to do anything outside.
Finally today it cooled down and started raining ~ it's much more pleasant.
Response: I'm so glad you liked the PL and the goodies. Thank you for your lovely comments, rating and the heart. ♥♥
Comment: That was a special pocketletter! My husband was born and grew up near part of the original road in Lexington, IL. He always talks about it whenever we reach parts of the Route 66 on our road trips. Thanks for the detail and thought you put to it and the lovely note.â¤ï¸
Response: I'm so happy that my Route 66 theme meant something special to you. I was so excited when I saw that I would be sending to a partner living in a Route 66 state, although I see you have to travel many miles across Texas to get there. Thank you for the wonderful comments and rating. â™¥

Comment: Linda, you sent an amazing selection of selvages...thank you so much! Even the packaging was adorable. Great swapper! âš˜âš˜âš˜
P.S. I've used your selvages to make adorable fabric bookmarks -- and they're going to Australia now. Thanks again for such a great selection!
Response: I'm glad you enjoyed the selvages I sent. I save them as much as I can but I found I cut most of them 1-inch or less. From now on I'll try to leave them wider. Thank you for the awesome rating and for the heart. â™¥â™¥â™¥
Comment: I'm Blessed and then I'm Blessed again, you did a great job on the Arkansas Quilt Blocks, could tell you had read my profile, sending an embroidery pattern with kitchen items and the thread, beautiful colors, the fabric is like icing on the cake, so pretty! Thank You
Response: I hesitated to send the quilt blocks. They were some practice blocks for me and a first attempt at paper piecing. I'm happy to read your comments and thank you so much for the wonderful rating and the â™¥.
Comment: Oh Linda, thank you for such a sweet package of spring embellishments. The tatted pansies are beautiful, thank you for sharing them with me! Everything else is just perfect and I will be able to use all of it. Such a great swapper, you are! â™¥
Response: Thank you for your lovely comments and for the heart. I'm glad you can use what I sent. â™¥
Comment: I absolutely love the mug rug. The redwork heart with the kitty is so cute. Love the little pinwheels too. Valentine fabric on the back is so cute. You deserve many hearts for just the mug rug but, you sent extras and wrapped it so nicely. Last week was a very hard week. Opening your package really made my day. Many, Many thanks.
Response: Your lovely comments have made my day. I enjoyed designing that mug rug just for you and I'm glad you love it. I'm hoping the little box of chocolates weren't crushed in the mail. Thank you so much for the awesome rating. â™¥
Comment: Thank you for the package! I will have fun opening all my little gifts!
Response: I hope you liked all of your Halloween treats. I loved the challenge of creating things that have such a different theme and feel than my usual cute/retro style.
Thank you for the lovely rating and the heart. â™¥â™¥â™¥
Comment: Sorry I didn't get to rate sooner. Was gone to the Amish country in Sugar Creek, Ohio for 5 days. A scrap booking retreat was fun for sure. Thank you for the awesome package. Loved it all.
Response: Oh, thank goodness. I noticed you hadn't logged in for almost a week and I was starting to worry. I'm so happy that you were having a wonderful time in a wonderful place.
Thank you for the lovely rating. It's always fun to swap with you. â™¥â™¥â™¥
Comment: Oh my goodness!!! I believe you went over the top on this swap. The booklet of satin swatches has my mind whirling with crazy quilt ideas, I absolutely adore the skeins of pearl cotton, the tiny orange gimp trim and the packet of sweet, red, tiny rick rack.The yo-yo's will fit right in on a Christmas project I have planned. Everything else you put in is just lovely, too.
Response: Your profile certainly inspired what I sent. I'm happy that you can use it in your sewing projects. Thank you so much for your lovely comments and rating. â™¥
Comment: thank you so much for a fabulous package, I loved it all, especially the pin cushion. Thanks so much!
Response: I'm so glad that you loved your swap package. The pin cushion was a new pattern for me and the directions were a bit vague. After some seam ripping and re-stuffing, I was finally satisfied with it. It means a lot to me that you liked it. Thank you for the lovely comments and the little â™¥ makes my day.
Comment: Wow! This is a great assortment of black teas! I almost ordered a box of "Breakfast in Paris" last Saturday! I can't wait to try it! I've also never tasted the Bigelow French Vanilla or (can you believe it) the "Constant Comment." Very cool! THANK YOU. :-)
Response: This was such a fun and easy swap. Thanks so much for the wonderful rating. â™¥ Enjoy your tea time.
Comment: Oh, my. I mean...OH, MY!!! Maureen O'Hara has never been more beautiful! And it is funny that we had the whole March/Irish idea floating in our heads, since you made an O'Hara...and so did I! Well, sort of. Vivien Leigh as Scarlett O'Hara. Linda, you did such an amazing job...I consider you my "button fairy mentor". And the beautiful buttons you included have me itching to make a pink button fairy! Thank you from the bottom of my heart, dear!
Response: That is quite a coincidence that we each made an O'Hara button fairy! I'm glad she arrived safely and that you love her. Thank you very much for the lovely comments and the awesome rating, including the hostess star. â™¥
Comment: Oh dear...I am in shock...these are by far the most beautiful swaps I have ever received. The theme of famous women is awesome, the workmanship is gorgeous and they are simply stunning. I shall think of how I shall display them because they are true works of art. Than you so much linda and 1 million hearts to you. I am so sorry about the cost of postage to send these but wow Thank you.
Response: I am so happy to see this rating as I was beginning to worry that the swap hadn't arrived. I don't do many international swaps due to postage but your sweet comments make it so worth it. It's so nice to know how much you appreciate what I made for you. â™¥â™¥â™¥
Comment: Love Love Love it! The banner/ garland is absolutely gorgeous, I've been wanting that ribbon and washi just haven't gotten it yet!love the glossy embroidery floss, I don't have that type. And love the large sequins! One of they best packages I've ever received.
Response: Thank you for your sweet comments. â™¥ I'm glad you loved what I sent.
Comment: Absolutely LOVE the postcard - it is wonderful, thank you for the xtras as well! The valentine cards with the pie theme are so cute!Where did you get the backs for your postcards? The card makes me hungry for pie, can't wait to try your recipe!
Response: This was a fun swap! The postcard back as well as the valentines and the images on the PC front are all downloaded from Pinterest.
I've been making that pecan pie for about 20 years. It originally came from either Woman's Day or Family Circle magazine. I make two pies the day before Thanksgiving and freeze one for Christmas. I hope you enjoy it.
Thank you for the rating and the heart. â™¥
Comment: WOW! I am so excited and HAPPY! I am the luckiest partner ever! This bag is soooo cute and adorable. I wish I could sew. I am leaving it out on the door knob in my craft room so I can ogle it! I was a good girl and put the wrapped item in the bag for October. That is sure a long time to drool! Thank you so much for this fabulous bag and goodies. I am off to a GREAT start! Hugs, Mona
Response: It is going to be so hard to wait to open the wrapped surprises but think what fun it will be in October. I'm so happy that you love your treat bag. Thank you so much for the wonderful comments, rating and heart. â™¥â™¥â™¥
Comment: I wish I could give you more than one heart!! Oh my gosh this package is FILLED!!! I love everything you sent me an it all will be put to good use. I'm so glad you sent me yo-yo's! I've seen them made before and with me being a sewer you would think I would have made these by now but nope. I love hand sewing/applique so I think now might be the time to sit down and make some of these little suckers, thanks for the inspiration. And again thank you for everything. I also LOVE the fabric covered buttons, you rock!
Response: You made my day with your wonderful comments! â˜º I used a CD for my yo-yo pattern. Just turn under the edge 1/4" as you gather around the circle. Use a double thread so it won't break when you pull it tight, then just knot it off and you've got a cute little yo-yo. They are fun to make and I usually add a button in the center when I sew them onto my projects. Thank you so much for the awesome rating. â™¥â™¥â™¥
Comment: Oh Linda ~ WOW....what an awesome baggie of buttons! They are great! Now for the bookmarker ~ WOW WOW WOW! I love it......I can't thank you enough, for joining in my swap and for all the awesome buttons!! (+bookmarker)....XO Kelly :)
Response: I'm so glad I could WOW you with my swap package. I fell in love with those beaded bookmarks a while ago and they are so fun to make. Thank you for the lovely rating , the â™¥ and for hosting such a fun swap.
Comment: Where do I even begin - thank you!!!! I love the Christmas Mini Book you sent to me with the snowman on the front! You did a wonderful job making my book for me! Thank you for all the little things you filled it with and the extras as well. Love the magnet, the raised stickers, tags, the beaded bookmark and all the fabulous extras that you couldn't fit inside the book! Thank you ever so much!!!!! I'm glad you enjoyed the swap and that you made more of the little books. I found they are a lot of fun to make as well!
Response: Thank you very much for your wonderful comments and the awesome rating. I was needing one more idea to fill the pockets when I received a magnet similar to the one I made in a Halloween swap. It was just the thing. I love all the wonderful ideas we get to share on swap-bot! â™¥â™¥â™¥
Comment: Oh my freaking goodness. AWESOME package! I love, love, love it. Even the card you wrote the note on is one of my favorite images--I'm planning on framing it. Thank you SO much. If I could, I'd give you TWO stars.
Response: Thant's what I like to hear.
I had so much fun putting that together for you. I'm so glad you love it all. Thank you for the awesome rating. â™¥â™¥â™¥
Comment: Linda - what a lovely dotee! Thank you so much - I just love it! What a unique idea for the head! Did you make it yourself?
Also thanks for the great beads. Sorry for taking so long to rate - it came while I was out of town and I just found the envie as my husband put it in a random pile (sadly, we tend to have many random piles sometimes!).
Response: I'm so glad you love your Scarecrow Dotee. I did make the head with a Styrofoam ball and paper clay. It was my first time using paper clay. It's a bit messy to work with but lots of fun. Thank you so much for your sweet comments and the awesome rating. â™¥
Comment: Thank you so so so much. I love Fern! She is hanging by my kitchen window by the sink. She can see all of the mango and breadfruit trees. She is so well made and pretty. Mahalo for the extras as well. If I could give you more hearts I would.

Comment: Everything is gorgeous Thank you! I love the box with magnets. It has inspired me to try to do something similar.
Response: One of the best things about swapping is that we inspire each other in our crafting. I'm so glad you are happy with your butterfly baggie. Thank you for the lovely comments and the rating. â™¥â™¥â™¥
Comment: OH MY STARS--this swap needs to be renamed "Halloween in a Piece of Luggage",; my package is as big as my luggage...Linda, you are the BOMB! I absolutely love everything--the handmade tote, the button fairy, the handmade banner, the Salem postcard, the handmade owl ornament, the pumpkin ornament, the tea, the candy corn, the metal sign, the maple sugar lack-o-lantern (did I leave anything out??). Everything will find a special place in my home and all kidding aside, from the bottom of my heart, I thank you.
Response: You are so very welcome. I had so much fun with your swap, I didn't know when to stop! Thank you so much for your rating and that cute little heart. Big smiles here.
Comment: Linda, I LOVE my beautiful Joannie ice skating fairy! It was so lovely that you made the buttons "mean" something! I was also touched by her story, and the fact that you designed her to reflect her country, the ice, and her medal is really special. Thank you for crafting something so special for me!
Response: I'm glad you liked her. Thank you so much for your sweet comments and kind rating.
Comment: Oh my goodness Linda, this swap package is in my top 10 swaps ever received! The towel is so adorable, and perfect! (I love the green and the butterflies!) I really like the knit dish cloth too, with matching butterflies. I can't wait to try the recipes - they look delicious! I'd love to give you many hearts for this package, but Swap-Bot will only let me give you one - you are amazing! Thank you so very much!
Response: Yea!!! Comments like yours make me so happy. I enjoyed every minute I spent creating it for you. Thank you for the rating and heart.
Comment: Dear Linda!
Thank you for lovely little Liberty! You have quite the touch in creating. Thank you also for the extras. They will be put to good use. So nice of you to be willing to swap with a beginner Dotee maker :-) Thanks again, Ann

Response: I love her too! She was the most fun thing to make. The necklaces came from the Mardi Gras Parade at the Eastern States Exposition (New England's country fair). We love catching them as they're tossed from the floats. Thank you for the awesome rating.
Comment: I just opened my handmade grocery bag and had to jump online the MINUTE I finished unwrapping to say - OMG, how awesome are you!
The fabric is just gorgeous and yes - so me! And your sewing is so perfect! I wish I was as clever. And I really appreciated the card and the re-folding instructions - so thoughtful. It is kind of like folding up a map - one wrong fold and it all goes wrong! LOL. thank you thank you thank you!
Response: You just made my day! Thank you for your sweet comments and the wonderful rating.
Comment: Wow, 2 ornaments! Thank you very much, they are both so cute! (I printed out and made the snaller pattern too and found that it didn't match the stated measurement once sewn together, so I wouldn't have rated you a 3 for the smaller size anyway.) Hugs, Terry
Response: Thank you Terry. I'm glad to know I wasn't the only one to make it too small on the first try. The correct size was easier to work with.
Comment: The pumpkins you made are absolutely adorable. I like both versions. Great idea about using yo-yos to cover the one pumpkin. Would never have thought of doing that. That's very creative. The pumpkin pie dessert squares look delicious. Am going to make them this week. Thanks for sharing your creativity with me! Have a great week!
Response: I'm so glad you like the swap I made for you. I love pumpkins and this was a lot of fun. Thank you for your sweet comments and kind rating.
Comment: If I could give you more hearts, you would be showered in them! Your house is adorable! So much tiny detail and even an itty bitty button fairy, and the little swapbot package on the back. You have a gift for making these. I can't wait to play with my Twinkling H2O's. Thank you so much.
Response: I'm glad you like your woodland house. My son suggested I sneak in the swapbot logo on all of my row houses. You can see I used the Twinkling H2O's on the fairy and the leaves. They are fun and add sparkle. Thank you for the kind words and awesome rating.
Comment: <3<3<3 !!! a button card! pin cushion is adorable beyond words in tandem with your charming selection of goodies. I feel uber spoiled, lol.
Thank you muchly for your efforts. the profile treat was very thoughtful :)
Response: I was hoping you might like that card of baby buttons. I love to use vintage buttons, but I hate to remove them from a nice card. I'm so glad that you enjoyed all the things I chose for you. Thank you for your kind rating. Good luck with that crazy word search book and have a great summer.
Comment: OMG i got Shellie this morning and she is the cutest thing ever, i just love her. also a huge thanks for the fabric, really beautiful bracelet and the most adorable pin cushion (i have made loads of bottle cap pin cushions but don't actually own one) it's packages like this that make up for all the let downs involved in swapping. you really made my day i wish i could give you more hearts thank you =)

Comment: Thank you for the absolutely gorgeous row house- I can't believe you're a beginner, it is lovely, one of my favorites I've received!

Comment: Linda! **Hugs** Your package made my day. You went above and beyond the requirements of the swap. I want you to know how much I appreciate all the thought you put into this swap. I've been disillusioned lately with swapping. I've run into quite a few flakers and non-raters in my short time here. But every now and then, I get a swap - like yours! - that makes up for everything :) Thanks again! ~Jess
Response: Awww... Thanks so much. I had a great time putting the swap together just for you. I appreciate your rating me and thanks for the heart.

Many many hearts to you!!!
Response: Thank you for your sweet comments. I'm glad you enjoyed your package. These were a lot of fun to make and I just might sneek some into a few of my swaps as an extra. I appreciate your rating and the heart. :o)
Comment: You deserve MANY hearts! Thanks so much for the AWESOME buttons! You made my day.
Response: I'm glad you liked the buttons. I've read in the forums of others having trouble getting the heart to show up. Don't worry about it. What's important to me is that you received your swap and it made you smile. Thanks for rating.

Response: Oh, what a nice comment. You are very welcome. I'm glad you enjoyed the swap. Thank you very much for rating me and for the heart.
Comment: Linida, this was a wonderful package and you were super thoughtful with the needle book and the selvages, plus it's an honor to have fabric and ribbon from you wedding. I also love when people writer letters about what they're sending and when they go and read my blog. You deserve a armful of stars.
Response: June, Thank you for the sweet comments and for giving me a heart. My favorite part of swapping is hearing from my partner after they receive my package. You made my day.
Comment: This is the nicest swap gift I have received since I joined Swap-Bot. I can wear it in my shop and really enjoy. Thanks for the extra's!!
Response: Awwww, I'm so glad you like it. Thank you for the rating and the heart. My favorite part of swapping is the reaction from my partner to the package I've made for them. Your comment has left me smiling!
Comment: Wow, thanks so much! You certainly didn't have to send them toys, but they sure loved them! We had to read the books as soon as they opened them, and of course, they've been playing with the trucks ever since. :) We haven't watched the video yet, but my 3 year old is excited about it. Thanks a million!!!
Response: You are very welcome. I'm glad your boys enjoyed their truck package. My son was all about big trucks at that age. He still has quite a few truck items he's not willing to part with. Thank you so much for the rating and the heart. Your comments left me with a big smile! :o)
Comment: OH....MY....GOSH! I LOVED the package you sent me. My daughter loves her apron since it matches mine. We wore them all day. And the pillow for my sweet little man....it made me cry. I just loved everything. Thank you so much for the awesome package. I wish I could give you 100 hearts. Thanks again!
Response: Thank you for the rating, the heart and for giving me exactly the reaction I was trying for. I truly enjoyed making every one of the crafts I sent to you and I am thrilled that they make you happy.
Comment: Oh my gosh, what a wonderful apron! I love, love, love the vintage pattern. The pockets are great. Removeable bib! My favorite color. This apron is surely the envy of the swap! Both of the recipes are new to me, I will try the chowder this weekend. Thanks for the swap, I will cherish this apron.
Response: Awww, I am so glad you like your apron. Lucky for you, it didn't fit me or it may have been hard to part with. By the way, for the chowder, measure the milk in the empty soup can (it's exactly the right amount)and save cleaning a measuring cup. Thanks for the rating and the heart.
Comment: Thank you so much for all the wonderful craft supplies! I'm so excited about the button faerie :) And no worries - the seashells arrived in perfect condition. Love the papers and the dotee doll supplies too (I really needed those). You truly brightened my day! Thanks again!!!
Response: I'm glad it arrived so quickly. I had fun putting it together. I hope you enjoy making the button fairy. If you use the faces and wings I sent, be warned that they were printed on my ink jet and the color may run if the glue soaks through the paper. Thanks very much for the rating and the heart. Now you've brightened my day!
Comment: Thanks so much for all the extras, I loved it all :)
Response: I'm so glad it arrived. I don't know what's harder, waiting to receive my swap or waiting to hear that my partner has received what I sent. Thanks tons for the rating and the heart. This newbie appreciates the feedback.
