    ~Sheri, I would do another batik twist.

    ~barbarakiebler23, I think Christmas candy is an excellent idea.

    Weeelllll......I don't mind hosting a Christmas 2.5" swap as long as Patrice approves it. It would just not have as long a sign up period as this one did because you'd want them before Christmas, or is it just a Christmas theme that has all y'all excited?

    Would love to do a Christmas candies 2.5" charm swap. I assume the fabrics would be Christmas/Winter themed? I also would love to do a Valentine's Day candies swap with fabrics reading as red, white or pink. What fund we could have all year doing these swaps. I would be willing to help so one person doesn't get burned out.

    I received two amazing "Candy" shipments today!

    To everyone. I will PM Patrice and make sure a Holiday "CANDY" swap is ok.
    Another question...do you all HAVE 50 holiday prints???
    Would you want a Batik twist for holidays? (I love the batik twists)

    It looks like our "Candy" swap will close at an even 40 signups. I have received 29 "Candy shipments" already and I am more than thrilled! And I just can't decide if these really are as yummy looking as I think they are or if I am just still new to these mini morsels and that's what's been so fun. Regardless, I look forward to more shipments. You are all awesome and have made my first experience as a Hostess unbelievably FUN.

    I know I have more than 50 holiday prints but many people might not. Maybe we could do a regular 2.5" candy charm swap with a twist of holiday fabrics so no one would be left out that wanted to play.

    Maybe we could do the Christmas sets smaller so more people could play. Or maybe it could be Christmas/winter/solids. Christmas prints, snowflakes, snowmen, Christmas red, green, gold, silver, etc. Depending on the rules, I will give it a shot. I know my way to the fabric store!

    for the Christmas candy swap: It might be hard to come up with 50 different prints. Maybe we could have some repeats fabrics..like no more then 5 of the same fabric.
    I know when I made a quilt with only purple and blue I had to use repeats on my fabrics. I used up to 10 charms from a piece of fabric. this might make it easier for more people to join in.
    Just a thought~

    Hey buddy! You can cut/paste, click on the little tree in a box icon just above the text section (close to the smiley face icon) or click "go advanced" and one there.

    I know I could come up with at least 20 not including reds and greens. Do I really need more squares, though....?

    I am almost done cutting, so these will go out tomorrow at the latest. So...would it be cheating next time to buy the precut "Candy"?
