    Since I had a complete hyster done I have NO desire to see
    those internal female parts anymore.

    I think I was more surprised at finding fabric like that than anything.

    per the website the fabric was developed as a statement about women's health being under political attack. the politicians that are making decisions about women's health care have no freaking clue what they are talking about as have been shown in the media lately. perhaps they needed to be reacquainted with the female body part that they were trying to make laws about. i dont really think the fabric was made with quilting in mind, but whatever floats a person's boat.

    Ok I see where Up North is using stamped blocks to hand embroider.

    Is there anyone else who uses the stamped blocks? just curious as I
    have seem them on sale but I don't use them anymore since I avoid
    hand work as much as I can. LOL

    Up North I THINK I have some of the floss also I will have to try and
    get my hubs to reach the box for me as it is up high and even with a
    step stool I can not reach the box.

    well i did get to the post office today so all of the rak envelopes i had sitting around for a bit have been mailed. the clerk chided me a bit about taping a flat rate envelope but i said to her it fits so it ships (their slogan). i showed her how far the top flap went over the package and said i needed tape becaz of the lopsided shape of the package not because it didnt fit. we both had a laugh over that.

    i did end up needing to pay more postage on the regular envelopes i mailed. they were lopsided also. one thing i know how to do is stuff an envelope (i fill up every available space in one) but what i couldnt do was make them flat. i told the clerk they could possibly get them through that thing they use to check envelope widths if they used a little elbow grease. ok by this time i had the clerk rolling around with laughter and she forgot all about her back ache. it's a good thing these p.o. clerks know me.

    now i will spend some time rounding up some more rak's to mail but this time around i am gonna work on trying to make the envelopes flatter as well as stuffed to the gills.

    Mary,

    Everose is new and will be on the NEW list (coming to your email SOON).

    Sewellie I do not have on the list never received a PM requesting info to get on
    to the list.

    Fayzer requested to be dropped from the list because she had to much going on
    with her personal life. I still have her on the list, but I have it set up NOT to be
    printed UNTIL she contacts me to tell me she wants back in active status.

    I also have a couple other names that does not show on the "final" list that you
    all get but it is because I have not heard any more from them and have never received
    the email from them.

    Ok everyone the cats is out of the bag (from the previous post I made).

    The NEWEST RAK list will be coming to your EMAIL SOON!!!
    I just have a little bit more work to do on it and than it will
    be flying to you.

    I want to give and advance THANK YOU to Mary (mmb) for all her
    hard work on backtracking on ALL 970+ posts to see what everyone
    has been posting about liking/collecting and so on.

    Using HER compiled data helped me to update and add that information
    to the list, PLUS I also made some changes to the list (another of mmb
    suggestions) to combine the fields.

    I really hope you like the way the list looks and the NEW columns I added
    INCLUDING a column for when you send/receive RAKs and/or if you want
    to add a tracking #.

    I spent the last 7+ hours working on updating all the information, and
    changing and adding columns.

    Hope you find it easy to work with. Sorry I still can't do much more about
    the size (to get ALL the columns on 1 page you need to print on LEGAL size
    (8-1/2x14) paper).

    I will announce it here when I click the SEND button on the email.
