Comment: Thank you for the great list and extra goodies. I love the little notebook and postcards! It looks like we have similar tastes in books. I have read several books by David Baldacci and Stephen Cannell and really liked them. I bought the "witch" series by Debra Geary on my kindle but haven't started them yet - will do so now with your recommendation. :-)
Comment: Thanks so much for the lovely extra cards. The little ducks are so cute and so is the fluff of feathers. I have never received anything that had to go through Customs so that was a first for me. Happy swapping and thankjs again.
Comment: Wow! Thank you for the wonderful note and the many postcards you sent! Was so very sweet of you! Your holiday sounded amazing! I had a very nice time on mine as well! Best wishes to you! And I look forward to sending along the postcard!
Comment: Thank you for a truly over the top swap! You went well above and beyond. Love the fabrics and cannot wait to try the teas. We have just come off a very hot two weeks and are getting some rain and cooler temps. Perfect time for tea now:)
Comment: Thank you so much for the lovely charms you sent to me. It finally arrived. And also thanks for the extra piece of fabric, love the colors.
Thank you. Look into your mailbox in a week or so! BC
Comment: Thank you for sending along synopses and reviews of all your books - that was a lot of fun to read! Some of our books were set in the same or nearby locations (e.g. Chicago), but I haven't read any of the books you read (although I've read Percy Jackson with my youngest son, and once had Eleanor & Park from the library....) Never even heard of the Chalet School series though!)
Comment: Thanks for the lovely card! We have been having a wet, cold and miserable time here in New Jersey, too. I am amazed that you saw a frolicking lamb! We don't have wild lambs around here, so that sounds very beautiful to me. :) Hope spring arrives soon for us both!
Comment: Of course I made it to the end. :) Dresden is one of my husband's favorite series. I enjoy the Eve Dallas, though I'm current on them, you got a lot to catch up on. :D Though our terms of racy are quite different. Those are so tame, compared to some of the reads I read. Hope you catch up on your goal. I'm likely to surpass my goal of 200 by quite a bit.
Comment: I got your reading log today, thank you! Even though YA isn't my favourite genre, I did enjoy reading your log :) I found it pretty amazing that you read so many books from long series! I find it difficult just reading a trilogy one after the other, let alone that many books, so well done for that. And you've convinced me even further to definitely check out Kate Morton.
Comment: Thank you for the generous fabric strips. Glad spring arrived for you. We had begun to believe that Spring 2013 had been cancelled for us folks here in South Dakota. But last weekend was beautiful and in the low 70's. Your fabric choices are beautiful. This is the first time I have receieved any fabric from outside the US. Thanks for being in this swap and I am glad I was your partner. Happy quilting and HAPPY SPRING.
Comment: Thank you! How creative to use little index cards! I may bind them with ribbon so they stay in order. :D Congratulations on finishing 25 books! That's 5 times what I read. :o Good luck on your goal of 100 this year!
Comment: MANY THANKS for the resend.. Such a HAPPY MAIL day for me because of your thoughtful swap... the postcard is a RAT which the year i was born on zodiac haha...:) and from my very like store ikea :) and the band-aids all so cool... love kiddie band aids so much. And the notebook...Thanks again for taking time. Bunch of hearts to you.
Comment: Shevvy/Siobhan, this must be one of the BEST items i have ever received. thank you! Just when I thought that Canada was most original with their spot o' color coins, UK amazes me with the 'Coat of Arms' coins you sent.
Comment: Thank you so much for such an awesome swap! I think it's so cool that you actually picked up those postcards in Morocco! I've like Moroccan things since I was a kid when my parents would take me to a much loved Moroccan restaurant in Hollywood. Very yummy food and dreamy decor! Thank you for the beautiful journal!! It is very soft and lovely...just wonderful!! You are so sweet to double check the tea for me for the licorice flavor...so much appreciated! I really enjoyed your letter and everything you sent. Thank you!! :) (And I'm so sorry for the late rating - I had some medical issues to deal with this month.)
Comment: Well, the UK stamps do suffer from their sameness, but at least they come in different colors! (Dr Who stamps should be quite interesting, depending upon which version they use!). Thanks for swapping!
Comment: Such a colorful letter, just as expected! I hope your ski tour went well (you bet I envy you :) You mentioned paper ships in your letter, but they weren't included in the envelope... However, that inspired me to google 'origami', so thanks for that! :)
Comment: I LOVE the soft journal you sent to me!! Now I must think of just the right content for it... the post card with all the snow looks like the view from my window right now~ Kansas City has a real winter this year. Thank you!
Comment: I have to tell you that I love Wales! I actually have a tattoo of the welsh dragon, as my family are from there originally, and every time i go there i feel at home! So of course i loved the welsh stickers, thimble and badge, YAY! Plus the fabric is just gorgeous! And my style too. Perfection! I will make sure i send something just as good! XXX loved the photos too!.
Comment: Hi, I am guessing what I got is from you. There is no return address and your name is not on it. I think you also forgot to add your name and location to the the traveling pc. The last one on there is from the Netherlands in Dec. It is a long parrot pc. Thank you for the wagon wheel pc that you included.
Response: Oh I am SUCH a numnuts... thank you for the rating I'll PM you the details : )
Thankyou so much
Response: Wow, if you'd like to write back, I'll keep up the correspondance in kind.. but honestly, if you don't have the time thats Ok too... I know how sometimes the having loads of swaps can mean not enough time to reply.. i have about 3 people to reply to that I havne't got round to yet.. but honestly it's up to you.. : )
Would be my pleasure to keep it going if you choose to : )
Comment: A marvellous parcel of scraps. All lovely fabrics, all ones I will enjoy using. And so generous too as it weighed 335g! THANK YOU VERY MUCH! I am delighted! A fabulous Swap partner and I hope we meet again.
Comment: loved the strips you sent and the extras, these strips are my favorites, a very easy quilt block is the Roman Square, no matching there, just pick up a piece of fabric and sew, the quilt is so colorful, that's where your strips will be used, thank you
Comment: Really like your format. I have to agree with you on "Angels and Demons" and "Digital Fortress." I'm going to hunt up the "Charmed" graphic novels. I didn't know they existed. (Was going to send you my log but there was no return address. If you'd like it, just PM me and I'll send it.)
Comment: I loved all the colors. Purple is my favorite color. You are such a good swapper. Glad that you signed up.Those plastic bags do they come like that or do you make them? Let me know if you read this.
Response: Glad you liked them, my pleasure.. Ahhh, reimind me what you mean? - Do you mean the little samdwich bags with the green stripe on them? I get them from Tesco, which is similar to Safeway in the UK.. They're way cheaper than ziploc bags : )
Comment: I know what you mean about this block - I didn't enjoy making it - might have liked a 12 inch one. Thanks for the cut of fabric, a color I will certainly be happy to have in my stash.
An the little pouch will be useful.
Comment: A lot of chocolate, knickers and knees being drawn for this one; who would have known what it really means? I love it when people put the stamps everywhere - they often miss being mucked up by the post office :)
Comment: thank you so much for the cute fabrics. i love the mittens and the birds are soo cute. i like the ice cream too. and soooo much thanks so much. you are so generous i hope you had a great christmas
Comment: Love, love, love the fabric, it is so cute. The workmanship is excellent, in both of the mug-rugs, thank you for the extra. I would give you more hearts, if I could, you deserve them for your generosity. I do hope we will meet soon in another swap. Best Wishes for a wonderful Holiday!
Comment: Hi Shevvy. I received the journal and the vintage postcards toay. I absolutely love the cards so much. They are very cute and unique. I also really like the little journal. The texture is so soft and nice. You really went out of your way to make up for the damage and lost items of the first go around. I'm assuming from your note on the postcard that there is another package. I think this one arrived first but I am so happy with the cards. Thank you.
Shioban, I received 2nd package today and OMG you really went out of your way to make this very special. I would give you 100 hearts if I could. Everything you sent me is amazing. I love it all. the notecards....excellent. The books, I love them both very much and It is exactly what I'm into. You totally pegged my personality and my style. Thank you so much. I hope that you have been receiving swaps as good as the ones you are sending. You deserve it. Thank you again. xoxo
Comment: Your mailing box was brilliant - the leaves got here in pristine shape, and I'm really enjoying them. I spent 24 hours in Wales and loved it, although I'm still having nightmares about driving on the "wrong" side of the road! Thanks so much!
Comment: Many thanks for your nice postcard from Brugge. You wrote very interesting about your trip. I can imagine that you had a great time there.
Today we had first time snow for this winter, it's frosty, too. I don't like to be out...
Comment: My boyfriend wished to comment on the rating: "This is the first touristic postcard that I see that isn't ugly" :D Thank you so much! I highly doubt it will be raining in Southern Spain, I could almost bet something:) Have a great time and thank you!
Comment: Your package arrived today and what a nice surprise. You more than made up for the Harry Potter greeting card. Nicholas was thrilled with his letter and he really liked the menu too. Thanks for thinking of him.
Comment: Thanks a bunch -- I have never seen a round PC before! I did have trouble finding you as you forgot to put the swap name on the card, and I do a lot of PC swaps. I love your name -- it has always been a favorite of mine, although it isn't very common in the US. And you are right -- Arizona is a lot drier. Wish you could send us some of your wet weather! Happy swapping!
