    april your too kind think its not the holiday thing its maybe someone forgot? did you ask Brenda to check with them? I was just reading your full board name GIRL could you have used any more letters if you wanted to? I sure hope you dont mind just april? or do you have another MO you go by?

    I am half done taking down Christmas. My sweet hubby got me a Christmas tree right after Thanksgiving. It is as ungreen as a tree can be at this point. Time to take the kindling out of the house. i think wow was my house always this boring. its like without.. excitement lol. Time to put up some silver and blue ornaments in the vases and a few glass trees out.. tada! it will look wintery lol not exactly taking the place of an 8 foot tree. all I have to do is find those trees.. put them somewhere good last Feb. sigh.

    I know Big Name right, but i am just learning lolo just call me April, its my name lol, I got my tree up late this year, and i so enjoy it, Its a fake one, I am allergic to pine and so is my middle daughter, it was horrible the year we stopped going to the tree farm and cutting down our own tree... but it was better then sneezing through the holidays, so I am going to enjoy this tree a little longer....I had 15 for dinner, for Christmas, i love it but am glad it's over. I love Christmas decorations, so beautiful.

    April last time I made dinner for 15 I had this 100 yr old farm house.. now counter space 12" to be exact everything had to be prepared on our monster butcher block table. No dishwasher either. Everyone came, sat down to eat everything I had made then promptly plopped themselves onto the livingroom couches and said boy are we full. I cleaned and they all were excited to get desert. I thought how lovely to sit back and enjoy a good meal and not spend a hundred hours preparing then a couple hours CLEANING the dishes. lol.. that was the largest last time meal I made. I was too pooped out! It was a good memory however everyone together at the table. My sister came with her inlaws and well.. it was fun. I am glad Christmas is taking a few months off however. I like.. peace too. AND April you sure would not enjoy being here. I live in the national forest and am surrounded by pine trees. Allergy heaven for you.

I would love to know who makes that one.

    The winter themes are great. You all have such beautiful selections your sending! Any clue to the theme for January? I know sign ups arent til towards the end of the month but I could start pulling now... still hoping you opt out of mardi gras or maybe a choice mardi gras or .. valentines day? as the swap. so this way I can still play. I am fresh out of masks, beads, jewels, feathers, yuppers fresh out.

    went to the post office today all the way down the hill across the highway.. hellooooooo nopers empty box. Snow tomorrow so maybe Monday right? of course I could sneak down right now sit inside and wait! thats the ticket! send mittens and a scarf asap.
    The blue pinecone is one I have had for a while, so I can't really tell you where I got it, either!!! LOL..the puppy one either...but I think I have a fq left of the puppy one that I would be happy to send it to you....

    Hurry up, everybody, and collect your FQs from the mailbox. I went shopping today and bought some fabrics for the next swap ... sure hope my fabrics match the theme!
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    That would be my luck Mary Mo, I would buy something that didn't match the theme and then I'd have to go shopping again!! Darn the luck!

    luck what luck? who has luck? me I figure any package with five fat quarters is a lucky package silly guys. Like you would turn it down and say oh crud its not the theme take it back? NOT ME. happy here to take all your fabric thats how good I am. Send asap need my address? I keep peaking for next months sign up but whooo whooo where is it? did i miss it?

    how many have NOT gotten their packages yet? I know we have til the end of the month to mail things but its tough when you see 99 percent are sent to keep waiting patiently. There are speedy senders and there are people who go by deadlines (kinda like you have a bill dont need to pay it til..). If you can hold on and keep that in mind its a whole lot easier I think. I figure everyone knows what they commited to. And I hope everyone keeps that commitment. so we can keep playing again and again and it continues to be fun for all. So get mailing slow pokes! make someone smile!

    [I know we have til the end of the month to mail things but its tough when you see 99 percent are sent to keep waiting patiently.]
    Brenda's statement in the sign up [
    Sign up until noon on December 3rd, receive person's name and address by December 5th and mail out no later than December 15th.]

    Elisabrat what do you mean you have till the end of the month to mail out?????? As Brenda states in the sign up message she has a deadline to send and it is shortly after the names go out because of reasons she states.
    I signed up for a second one this month, previously I only would sign up for one. And this month I still have not gotten either package. They should have been sent by the 15th. I understand about there being a lot of packages being handled but when you sign up you should at be aware of the send deadline. Is this misconception why so many haven't received the packages yet?

    My apologies for not posting sooner, I have received both my FQ's for this month but left home for the holidays and could not recall who I received them from.

    Thank you sewellie for the email. LOVE your package. :-)
