Wendsy, let me know if mine had postage due. I took reg size envelopes as well as legal size to my local post office. They both were 45 cents. Then I took finished blocks in a legal size envelope as well as some in larger manilla envelopes Both were 85 cents. I wasn't told they can charge more somewhere down the line! I guess my experiment was useless. I hope nobody gets charged extra, and if you do please let me know!
I have noticed that fabric is getting narrower too. I spent $12.99 a yard at my LQS last week. It measures out at 43 inches wide. I don't think the fat eighth being a bit short will matter. So far I am having a bit left over on my blocks.
The following have their blocks enroute home: Abby's Mom, abonda, Cyndi H, goldendog 55, jaba, ljdugas31, and scrapquilt. I hope you like them!
Wow! You folks are swimming along nicely. Fabulous.
I received some wonderful pieces of fabric today!

Yay! I finally have a power cord for my computer again!
If you still need help, you might try searching on Youtube. I use OpenOffice, which is similar to Office, but not exactly the same, and I found an excellent video that gave me step by step instructions. After each step I paused the video and did what it showed me and my labels came out fine. Well, except that I couldn't find my box of labels so I printed on plain paper. Still easier to use a piece of mailing tape on each one instead of writing it out!

I don't even take my envelopes to the window, I buy forty 65cent stamps, put them on the envelopes and drop them in the slot. I've never had a postage due issue or a torn up one. Maybe this helps clear things up a little!
All of my F8s went out today!
