Any suggestions???

    she lools like a little tomboy girl.
    would call her Charleeeeeee

    ok, this is making me nervous! Ya'll are talking about mailing several boxes. I understood that one "requirement" for this this swap is-4 fat quarters. and to spend no more than 20 bucks. we can shop our stash and make whatever else we like to send. first timer here so am I on the right path here? I don't want to disappoint anyone!

    Sounds like you got it just right. Some people have a very large stash with lots of extras already put back. I can honestly say, I may be going a bit over $20. Inflation...and not a very large varied stash. And, I am getting a bit creative on the homemade items. But, unfortunately, it won't be tremendously over. I have a very limited budget at the moment. But, I don't think my Secret Giftee will be disappointed.

    Last year, I was right at the $20 dollar mark. It was fun. A first time for me also. I also was very nervous. I think if you just keep it quilt related you'll be good. Unless of course, your Secret giftee gave you other suggestions.

    I have shopped my stash, bought the fat quarters and a few small gifts. I made a few items as well with things I had on hand.

    I think my recipient will be happy with what I am sending, even though I have had to watch my spending.

    I showed the unwrapped items to my mil tonight and she is jealous (she does not sew, but is a painter).

    overthinking is easy to do; specially if you don't know the person.

    Just relax, enjoy what you are making & let your creative side take over! I'm having way too much fun sewing little things to go in the box! I keep thinking of more to put in there!
