I'm sure whatever I receive will be beautiful. I will check the P.O. daily.
Deb, thank you for all your time and work. Your swaps are always the best.
Can't wait to hear your next idea.
My eyes have rested a bit. Now I have a headache......no kidding....anyway, when you get your blocks, those of you who have the mixed up mess....please let me know what I need to fix. I will be more than happy to make it right. I can't believe that I messed up like I did. My swaps are always right on!!! as for the next idea.....uhhhhhhh......not ready to even consider it yet. I am distressed that the postage will be going up again, as I know some of you send them a bit less expensive. I am a stickler to make sure the blocks come back in excellent shape, and the bubble FRE is the best way for me.
Well I'll be excited to get them. I can't imagine your swapping nightmare! You're awesome, Deb! I know your next swap will be very exciting.
2.5" stamp swap! Come join the fun.

Deb, I know whatever blocks I get will be just fine. However the mix turned out, I thank you for doing this. It can't be an easy job and any one who hosts a swap of any kind must be a very special person. Thanks again!

I have caught two mistakes just before I went to the PO, so I will fix those. Again, if you are missing a star to two, or a double t, or have one too many stars and want replacements, I have 5 Double t's ( I made another one) and two extra shoo fly's. Just let me know and I will send them. And Evie - thanks for the compliments, Patrice thinks I am just plain nuts....this is the very first one I messed up on.....ughhhhhhhh. Darn ....that OCD let me down this time!
Ooo, ooo, ooo, my blocks arrived today, and they are all great! It's such a treat to receive all these lovelies. I've ironed them and put them up on my wall and admired their variety. Now I just have to figure out what to do with them.
Deb, thank you so much for making this happen. I know it was bothersome, but really, we couldn't have done it without you.
Now, I'm off to prepare for Hurricane Sandy. I hope to sew right through it, but I'll be thinking of all of you folks in her way.

My blocks arrived today just before Hurricane Sandy hits Philadelphia, and they are beautiful.
I love each and everyone of them, they are going to make a great quilt.
Deb, thank you for doing this swap and thanks to all of you for swapping these beauties.
To all the east coasters, stay warm and dry.
And happy quilting to all my quilting board buddies!

Thank you all for swapping with me. I love all the blocks. I got one less of the double T and one extra of the Virginia stars so it all evens out. I am a sucker for stars so it was a good deal for me. I was also excited to get a sweet potato block and a block from Fraew with the busy back ground. Love them all the blues, greens, browns, reds and yellows. I have some plans for them. Special thanks to our swap host Deb. I have done several swaps with Deb and she is a wonderful host.
WOW, that was fast service by the Post Office!!! Must be you two have the correct number of blocks.....again, when you get them if you are unhappy, please, please let me know and I will make it right. Darn those Double T's! On another note, I have the furniture in the basement moved, the rugs rolled up towels are over the cracks and the shop vac is ready. I am going to stay down there and sew and catch the water as it comes up....sew a little, suck up water alot, dry the towels, sew some more, suck up more water......I may even grab a Smirnoff now and then to elevate my 'spirits'.......please pray for those who are in much worse shape than I am. I will be okay if the power stays on.
