    Yeah! Thanks Honchey. I'll be watching for it. Hubby thinks I need another bin to store them in. The one I have is over flowing.

    Yippee more candy in today! BOXES of it. HaHa!

    I received a box from yosamitesa. She sent me her "candy", returned my 6.5" swap I did with her AND sent me my a block she made me for the Boom Friendship Diamond group!

    I also received candy from DoriDeS in a hugh box! But she's my sister and she also send birthday presents for my daughter and a fun prize for me. LOVE you sis!

    I'm actually out of town and posting from my iPhone. When I return home I'll take a pic of the OVERFLOWING bin for you to all see. Next week, the 31st, all the "candy" is due. If you can't mail this week you'll need send it priority. Just keep me posted.

    Hugs All! Sheri

    I would do a christmas candy swap but also don't have 50 different fabrics, well I do but some are just scraps and don't think I could get enough for very many sets, but I like the holiday twist idea. I have lots of Batiks to do a batik twist too...
    Give a smile away today, someone you meet might need one!

    Why on earth is it so exciting to wait for tiny scraps of fabric to show up in the mail? I think I need some kind of therapy!

    My CANDY is cut and bagged! Just need to label and mail!

    I'd be in for Christmas/Winter CANDY - but with a mailing date mid-January...cause I won't use them this year (or probably next year ...hahaha). Fabrics can be purchased little by little if someone knows they'll be in the swap.

    It might be very helpful to have 20 or 25 different fabrics in a bag instead of 50. This would help those with smaller Christmas/Winter stash. Those with larger stashes could sign up twice...once for herself and once for 'her sister'! Hahahaha

    It would even be nice to have the Christmas/Winter as a TWIST to the regular CANDY swap...again in mid January.

    Thanks for hosting this fun swap - can't wait to receive 1000 pieces of CANDY back. Patrice gave me permission to host my 2 1/2" strip swap again. So look for those directions to be posted soon.
