Comment: Sent you a long PM about the house and forgot to rate! :)
Response: I thought that might have happened because I've done the same thing! Thanks a bunch :-)
Comment: Your insights were great for this tour. I hadn't noticed the kitchen alcove and your research into Candace Wheeler is also really interesting. Thanks again for hosting! Michelle
Comment: Your Answers are much better articulated than I ever could. The fact that you said the museum is like a corn maze is spot on. I had a heck of a time navigating it, but what a great museum! I really enjoyed looking into Dali's surreal world. Thank you for coming up with such a fun and unique swap, this is exactly what we need more of here on the bot!
Response: I'm so glad I got to share this experience with you! What a great place. Thank you for the kind rating. Happy swapping!

Response: Thank you for the rating & ♥ and for participating in the swap :-)
LizzyJo rated for NT: Stitched Mandala on Feb 4, 2020
Comment: Guess what showed up today? An awesome happy mail package full of mandalas and chocolatey goodness. WOW is the best way to describe it. You really spoil me! Thank you so much.
sherba31 rated for NT: ATCoin Patch on Dec 10, 2019
Comment: OH I LOVE IT! Thank you for the beautiful patch. We actually just returned from a trip to DC although the cherry blossoms are not in bloom. On a drive through the Tidal Basin we reminisced about the past festivals we've attended there. So your patch is really just perfect - lovely, lovely job!
Response: My brother used to live in the DC area but I was never able to visit during peak cherry blossom season. I would love to see that! I'm glad you liked the patch. Thanks so much for swapping with me :-)
24Donna rated for NT: Christmas Ornament on Dec 6, 2019
Comment: Thank you! LOVE this ornament! One of my favorite decorations is the tree on a car/truck! Reminds me of when our children was youngsters and we cut down our tree every year, great memories! On the tree already! Also the Christmas card I will be making that cookie recipe! You have blessed me! God bless you ❤️❤️❤️❤️
Response: Excellent! I'm so glad I got to send my ornament to you, then. I thought it was a super cute pattern and am glad it will be enjoyed, hopefully for years to come :-) Merry Christmas and God's peace to you and yours.
Comment: WOW!!! I almost don't know what to say, the needle book is gorgeous! The boro & sashiko influence really comes through and every little detail is perfect. Thank you for also sending along the extra fabric to add details, its like a collaborative project! ;) Thank you so much for this wonderful little piece of art, I can't wait to put it to good use and show it off! I would give this swap a million hearts if I could!
Response: Welcome home! I'm glad you're happy with your needlebook and hope you can customize it to match your needs. Sorry I wasn't as smart as I thought I was in doing that for you. :-) Thanks for the nice rating. Happy swapping!

phillaine rated for N&T: Backstitch ATC on Aug 15, 2019
Comment: This is truly a work of art. So much movement and play with textures! I have never before seen the intriguing technique you used, and want to try it for myself now. Your attention to detail is impressive, and I loved hearing about your inspiration for the piece. Thank you for a beautiful little treasure. ♥
Response: I'm glad you like it! It looked like nothing but a tangled mess until I added the little house. The process was quite enjoyable! Thanks for participating :-)
mandigutterrose rated for ISS: An Uninvited Guest on Aug 15, 2019
Comment: This was amazing to read, it made me laugh so much! Each new thing was like, "Yeah, I can handle that!" Honestly operatic Metallica would make that drive so much better, I've done it when my husband had an account in Stockton. I get carsick too, the bags are already under the seat! Separate vacations from my family? I don't have to get up and feed all the animals?! WHERE.DO.I.SIGN.UP. Oh, and I'll totally sleep in my son's bed, it's the newest and most comfortable in the house! My husband is the GM of the casino bank, he'll school you all day long to get you in there so he can win your money. It's open 24 hours, I'll get that train ticket money back from you on a roundabout way in no time!!! I'm gonna need a lot of beer for The Shining... I'm familiar with Rancho Bernardo, I got you for sushi and Ben & Jerry's; I've learned edamame is really filling. The Lookout is a fabulous place to see the sunrise over the lake, oh and as for your fresh cream... Well, we have to drive right by the dairy on Corydon to get to and from the casino so consider it done (I'll even get you some of the world's best chocolate milk, 6% fat and worth every calorie). Paddleboats haven't been made available at Launch Pointe yet, but I'd be happy to paddle you around the wetlands in our kayak - the wildlife is beautiful. I have done more Vegas turn arounds than I can think of to go to the airport to pick someone up and send them home - back and forth and back forth. Maybe you can burn a Metallica cd for me for the ride home! Super fun swap, I loved it!!
Response: Oh, man! I made that way too easy on you! Your husband might actually be the only one suffering here! LOL! I do think we would have a lot of fun together. :-) Thanks for doing this with me! I'll be sending your hostess gift next week. Fade to Black . . .
Catida rated for ISS: Matchy-Matchy Mail Art (Edited) on Aug 14, 2019
Comment: I got your butterfly envelope today, it's very beautiful, and I can see you've put a lot of work in it. Thank you very much! Also thank you for the letter, and the pretty notecard.
Response: Thanks for your kindness. Again, I'm so sorry the post office added their own "art" to the piece. I appreciate the rating and the heart.
helo rated for TPS: Prayer Flag on Aug 6, 2019
Comment: Totally awesome swap, beautiful stitching and colours. x
Response: I'm glad you like it! Thanks so much :-)
bstitched rated for N&T: Kandinsky Circles on Aug 2, 2019
Comment: Love, love, love this little beauty! Thank you Allison for brightening my day. Your stitches and beading are great and all in my favorite color combination. Perfect swap!
jeka396 rated for FS: 2 Truths & A Lie PC - US Only on Jul 25, 2019
Comment: Loved the PC you chose... and my guess for the lie is #1- playing the Cowardly Lion
Response: You got it :-) Thanks for the rating and heart.
Comment: What an adorable postcard! My guess for the lie is the 3rd one about your Dad calling your bff Tumbleweed
Response: I was happy when I found that postcard in my stash. I thought you would like it. :-) Thanks for the rating and heart. PMing the answer.
helo rated for N&T: ATC Coin on Jul 2, 2019
Comment: WOW amazing stitch - must have taken you AGES. xx
Response: It did take ages! I had forgotten how time-intensive counted cross-stitching is. Thanks so much for joining the swap and for the nice rating :-)
Comment: I like it! And its title cracked me up! (I do have to admit that I had always pictured Coco as a blonde, so the color of her contribution was a surprise.) Give Coco the Wonder Dog a hug and kiss (minus the vaseline) for me. Thanks for joining me in this fun (though immensely weird) swap!
Response: Nope! Coco is dark and mysterious. :-) Now that you've seen it, you have to admit that my twinchie is kind of disgusting, right? It's ALWAYS a pleasure swapping with you...even when our projects get weird. Thanks!
Comment: this is amazing thanks!
Comment: I love the vintage look Nashville pc- thank you! :)
Response: I'm always amazed when flimsy PCs like that make it to their destinations! Go, USPS! Thanks for the heart :-)

Funny you should appear .... I was just thinking about you and Coco today! Mike was considering going down to Moab and I was wondering how you two were doing. Maybe once we can all have human contact again, I will visit GJ. Makes you appreciate the luxury of traveling about! Hugs to you -
