I just don't understand why your f8 get here so fast--hehehe--could it be we live SO close?
I put 2 Christmas Forever stamps. Hope that works out. It has in the past & I had extra stamps.
Ok I just returned from walking over to my post office. I am fortunate because it is only 1/2 half a block away. I am in every group so I am going to post this on each group so that I do not have to type it again. Everyone's F8 has been mailed. WHEW!!!!! Being in all 5 groups you can imagine the price I paid. Of course I also had to get 100 forever stamps and 200 20c stamps. One of those 100 20cents is for a member in the Pacific group who can't get to the post office. Ok I will share what I learned. All my envelope cost exactly one forever stamp. So if your end tells you different let me know. Now for the people who are in more then one group.....I put yours in a 5 X 7 envelop. Guess what....that is considered pkg. price and so it cost more then if I just put them in separate office envelops and mailed them. Go figure. So When I return your grown up block...those in several groups will get several envelops. I want you all to know that so that you mail yours just in the office envelop as it will be cheaper. Of course those overseas always will cost more. LOL. I was surprised that my office envelopes were just the forever stamp, but then this is the first time I wrapped them in saran wrap and squished them down as tight as possible.
I am now looking forward to getting F8 to start making blocks. Let the fun begin.
Dottie.....I only received one of yours for the Artic group. Just wanted you to know in case you sent this one. Maybe it will arrive today. Our postman doesn't show up until late afternoon.
I have decided to try some different patterns from the block galore sight. I do have some standard ones that I just love and do sew up nice and I generally stay away from too many points. But I am going to try some. Ok I am shaking over that thought. But what the heck.....can't learn if you don't try.
I have been fighting allergies since last Aug. Blocked up sinuses etc. So I am now going to an allergist again. She put me on this food regime or no food....however you want to look at it for three weeks. Essentially I can eat fresh fruits and veggies and lean meat. Ok....I can do that. I am almost at the end of the three weeks...Three weeks without my beloved cheese. I am a totally cheeseaholic. Also she has me taking some minerals because the regl. med. I take for cholesterol...depletes certain minerals so you have to replace them. Who knew that one????? So after three weeks.....I still have the stuffed up nose, sneezing, etc. So now I wonder what the Allergist will do. I think I now get tested to see what I am allergic too. Isn't life fun???? Of course I sneeze constantly around fabric and I was told it's because of the Formaldahyde in it. I do wash my material so that should not be an issue. I sure hope I am not allergic to material. LOL.
