    Oh Cathy, i hope you're not gonna toss your table topper. I have the magic solution for you, no seam ripper, i hate ripping seams. This is what you do. At the top of your photo, count down 4 seam lines, and one more seam line makes 5. with right sides toghether, pin seams 4 and 5 together, right on the seam line, now sew on that seam line, open up, and voila, problem fixed, now just trim and iron.

    How CLEVER are you.....I hadn't even noticed the extra row, and its taken all the this time for me to study what you wrote and scroll back up to the picture, then back down to your message... THEN finally the penny dropped. Great solution, and so simple, I would have taken the long route, ripper in hand......I believe you girls call it 'froggin' lol!!

    Barb that is a wonderful and easy solution! I threw it in a box as it ticked me off when I realized what I'd done. The fabric is 3 inch blocks of lilacs that are cut from just one piece of material. It amazes me that just by randomly putting them back together they look great.

    Cathy M where are you mailing from? I was not given an estimate on time except 4 days to the border. I live in Califkornia USA. Thanks just hoping you are close for my time line. It would be great if it arrived in 6 to 10 days. Thank you again, sewbusy

    Sorry, I didn't take a picture of the box....just sent it. lol

    Cathy M....did you use the square box or the long flat one?
    On t square box I used, it says total weight is 20 pounds on it.
    Not sure on the other box.
    Don't know what box your postal person is talking about. But they had 3 of them there. The long one that was about 2-3 inches high, the small square looking one, then another square one that was bigger, but is for APO/FPO shipping. Need to find out the rules on that one. I can get mail thru APO and someone told me that if you mail to APO/FPO its FREE! Hmmmmm.........
    I think it sucks you had to take the ribbon off!!

    But I like your table top. Really pretty!

    I need to find that 3d box. Didn't know they had it. I used the 12x12x5.5.
    Was mad that I had it full to the top and it only weight 6.65 pounds! Wanted to take it back and repack to find more room to put more fabric in. But, I'm definitely going to find that $49 box .

    Thank you Cathy, I guess the clerk was just lazy and did't want to look that up for me.

    Tirhni!!

    Where are you?? missin you, I have been trying my best to find out abit more information regarding fabric outlets in Hong Kong - NO easy task!!

    I have googled craft fabric/craft shops/quilting/ etc., with very little luck, but did find a couple of blogs in which they were asking about fabric outlets etc.

    One area being discussed that has a huge fabric market is a place called Sheung Wan, Sham Shui Po and Shanghai they apparently have a great market too!!

    I will plod on and try and find out some more info for you, its the least I can do for you, giving some of my time in return for your generosity!!

    If you DO google yourself, DO NOT go onto the site needleworkclub.com
    I got a blinking virus which thankfully was picked up by my AVG programme this morning, so be careful!!

    Catch you later,

    Izy

    Tirhni - well I broaden my horizons, and learnt a whole lot more about Hong Kong - Oh I wish I was going!! If you like Singapore you are just gonna luuuuuuuvvvvve Hong Kong!!

    Here are some websites with lots of good general/shopping information:-

    www.placesinfo.com/hongkong_shopping.html
    www.discoverhongkong.com - this is the tourist board site
    www.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tourism_in_Hong_Kong

    On Wikipedia, if you look on the left, I think the link is 'where to shop' click on there, you will see all the different areas mentioned and what they particularly sell there. It mentions Sheung Wan in the Western District - sounds good fun!!

    Am I tempting you to go now?????? :D :D

    I'm going to talk to my daughter about sending you a package. She manages a mailing house here. I wrote your address down so she can look up some info. on your address. Maybe she can come up with something different. You gals have really reserched it well though. I don't want to be left out of the fun!

    I'm here! Just had to go MIA for a bit. Had the Submarine Birthday Ball last night and stayed down at the hotel where it was at. Had a good time and was the "Talk of the Dresses" with my Hawaiian Formal Muu-Muu. The people who worked there, were making nice comments about the gowns the ladies were wearing, but when they saw me in mine...oh my! They were amazed. They couldn't believe someone would wear a "local" dress. I love my muu-muu. http://www.mamohowell.com/proddetail.cfm?CFID=6309197&CFTOKEN=44247680&ItemID=803&CategoryID=4
    Mine is a teal color, but with the same design and has a small train to the back of it. Even the ladies there were loving my dress. They wanted to know where I got it from. Told them to take a trip to Hawaii. lol

    But anyway....thanks for the info.
    Oh, I know about the viruses...have gotten a few sites I went to for quilting and these pop ups came up, but my virus protector zapped them for me.
