Okay ladies, all the rubies are addressed and ready to go. I already had the envelopes sealed so will have to send your candy bar on the return trip, I got your fav's written by your name. Elisabrat, damn potato won't fit in a small flat rate, sorry I'm not falling for the med. rate box. Send me your fav candy though and it'll be sent.
I think I included a note in each 1, but if I missed, please note by my name...only preference is no red. Thanks. Looking forward to getting your beautimous fabric!!!!:thumbup:
Ok.. since as I mentioned before I have tiny little scraps for all my fabric.. I have 8 different fabrics.. various blues and one set of purple. Tried to have 2 of each but one I had 1 of and one I had 3 of..
WHY do I do these things to myself .... I went shopping and the autopilot on my car parked in front of the LQS. I *had* to go in. Found two gorgeous fabrics and they came home with me. Debating whether I want to keep them for my stash or use them for the boom ... will have to decide soon.
But the bigger problem was on my way out the owner stopped me just as I was passing the Janome 12000 and we started chatting about it. He knows I have the 6600 and wouldn't part with it for the world. He whispered to me .... "l'll sell it to you for the trade-in price of $8,000 and you can keep the 6600 instead of trading it in!!".
ACH!!! How do I tell my husband that I NEED $8000 for yet ANOTHER sewing machine when he's trying to save a few $$ to buy himself a "toy" (a BMW). He never buys himself toys!
I think I'm going to have to pass on the deal of a century :(
ok, i'm a 'ruby'
i will hold on writing my envelopes until i hear of any amendments to any addresses...
april, you've done an amazing job!!! looking after all of us ladies...
by the way, do we have an updated address for 'travelinggramma'???
seeming her address is wrong?
I was just ironing my fabric (decided I'll stick with the original plan) and I noticed two things. 1) the selvege is extra wide and 2) it's only 42" (with 41" "usable) across - not 44".
So I'm going to cut my pieces 9 3/4" X 20.5" to get roughly the same total square inches.
Also, I'm going to dry press the fabric, I'm not going to starch it. Not sure if everyone wants/uses starch coupled with the fact that I use a scented starch (Maryellen's) and want to avoid scents on the fabric.
Hope this is all OK with everyone.
Sue that will be fine.
I just want to say again I am sorry for the errors this time around. Those who have swapped with me in the past know I usually try to make sure everything is 100% before lists go out so I have no idea what went wrong this time around. Hope it was not too much trouble for anyone.
My fabrics will go out on Monday..I am debating if I want to go over to the ER or go to my mom's and spend the night there. My IH is acting up real bad and hubby is not home :(
I am in the Diamond Group and would love to swap with some more people. So if any of you want to do an additional swap just pm me and give me your address. Happy swapping and sewing ladies. Wooohoooo
April...Stop stressing over such little things! All is good and we all love and appreciate all of your hard work...now go to your Mom's and de-stress! We'll be here when you get back...promise!
April, you have been working on this for hours, enough is enough. You get some rest and forget about us. We can all talk to you when you feel better. Love and hugs!
Got the fabric cut, ironed & wrapped (thanks Dad for doing the ironing and wrapping :)).
Got the labels made and all the envelopes are ready to go (once Dad seals them). I even got a note inside already.
Are there address changes to make?
These will go out Monday :) Yipee
