    Lynnie, I can't wait to see yours!
    I was thinking that if you did tiny strips sewn together, and then sliced them - either regularly or at random angles - mixed them up ... what an interesting (and probably lumpy) result you'd get. I love experimenting!

I had put it in a bubble envelope..charge would have been (I think about $8.00) I had checked on line and there the price for postage was $5.65..so..I mentioned it to the post lady and she said if I used their flat large envelope it would only be $3.75..so I hope you get it ok!! Pays to ask!!

    [QUOTE=Krystyna;5833386]I've been using a combination of Ann Brauer's technique and FMQ.

    Ah-ha!! Hints! Worked on yours yesterday -- looked "dumb" at midnite when I quit. Hope it looks better this morning. Got hung up on using only two colors (wasn't that last month's theme that I didn't follow?) I'm trying really hard not to go to Hobby Lobby or Hancock's because I know I'll end up spending big bucks with all the sales and coupons. Maybe some machine embroidery will help .....

    LOL....any excuse to go shopping. although it is hard when one is trying not to spend. LOL.
    Mailing out of the USA......It really does depend on the type of envelop you put it in as to what it will cost. Of course no one ever tells you that. I just sent a package to Australia to the Grandkids. Inside were Valentine cards and candy....cost me about $10.........To mail it was $33. LOL. They do not sell conversation heart candy there or celebrate Valentines Day the way we do with the children exchanging cards in school and a party.
    Lynnie......I thought about doing strips sewn together and then cutting the shapes but decided on stripes. Never worked with stripes so it was an interesting thing to do.
    Nor tootsie rolls or ranch dressing.

    Well that was goofy.....they don't sell tootsie rolls or Ranch dressing there. They do sell other sweets that we don't have here. So it balances out I guess.

    Tulip and I have made contact. I had a dream about her DQ. Now I'm standing at the cutting table trying to figure out how to make it. Also contacted Tam-Moo. I love the cow in her avater.
