I love everything...from the beautiful butterfly bookmark (which I admired in a post of Esta's) to the coffee and teas (both of which I drink), to the great book (of which I already read a chapter and can't wait to read more) to the cute Koala (which is next to my computer already), to the stickers (of which I'm going to use in my scrapbooking) to the soft fluffy yarn (and of course I'll use that!) and a postcard of Melbourne.

Waiting Patiently :)

Hey, Juli

I haven't received my book/bookmark yet, but Amy wrote to me on the 10th saying she was finishing it up and hoping to get it in the mail that week. I'm looking forward to seeing what she created for me! :)

I'll probably request another partner soon. I want to finish up a few other things. In fact, I'll be happy to start around the 1st of August if someone else wants a partner. Keep me in mind!

Hello everyone!!!!

Sue -- I apologize. I had your package ready for weeks, and it finally got to the post office two days ago. It should arrive quickly. It's winging its way by airmail to you. :) I love the lace bookmark you made for me. It's living in my Annotated Dragonlance Chronicles. :)

This is what I have in my records....if there's a mistake or I don't have you marked down as receiving your swap please let me know. :) The exchanges highlighted in blue I'm not sure about.

Belated thank you to Lucy

Sorry this is so belated, but between international shipping and then my being away...

Lucy sent me the greatest bookmark! (Thanks for the pattern, too, since we've all fallen in love with it here; instead of fighting, we can duplicate it) and some excellent stitch markers made by her niece. (The markers are on top of the bookmark in the picture; you can't see how truly pretty they are.) The book she sent along is by James Patterson, and looks to be a sweet love story. I love JP's mysteries, and it'll be fun seeing what he does in a totally different genre.

Your bookmark is on the way, Amysue!!

Amysue, I was late, but I mailed your bookmark Monday, July 3rd, tucked inside a book that I think you will enjoy reading. You should get it this week! Enjoy!

This was fun!
