    I kind of have this mental picture of us all setting at a huge table banging our fists on it chanting, "Candy! Candy!" while poor Sheri is running around like a mad woman trying to divide it all up.

    When my kids were young and finished their Trick Or Treating they'd come home and pour all their candy in a huge pile and we take a picture of the goodies they'd received. Here are your goodies ladies, in one big pile!!!

    It took me 30 mins to pour the "candy" into my bowls. But I had a good system and it only took... oh....about an hour to repackage and prepare it for distribution.

    The third picture is all our candy packaged again and waiting for me to divide it. If you look closely you'll see some of the prizes I was sent as hostess. Some were still packaged with postage though. To each of you, I am truly grateful. I wish I had written each gift down so I could thank you individually. You were all to sweet with your talents and gifts, from MugRug or QuiltMagazine or PinCushion to fatquarters or extra "candy." You are all such awesome ladies and I hope you share "candy" with me again soon!

    Tomorrow I will begin sorting and preparing to mail back to you. I believe I gave myself until the 15th to mail. This is my first time as a hostess and I was unsure how long it would take. I'll let you each know as my USPS takes over.

    HUGS! Sheri

    This thread has been so much fun that I hate to see it end. I'm hoping we can get another swap going. At this point, I don't even much care what we swap. You have all been so much fun to "hang out with". Thanks to you all.

    This has been a super great bunch of "candy" swappers. I hope to get another swap up. Target due date in February. I just don't think I can swing one before Christmas, but I did save all my Christmas "candy" so maybe we can have another swap with a Christmas or a Batik twist!!

    I hope you ladies are as excited as I am about getting "candy." The first picture here is of my room when I was preparing to swap today. That's only half of what I swapped too. It slightly frightened my hubby...lol. I did get the cotton "candy" swapped. Tomorrow I'll swap everyone's Batik twists. Then Monday I'll start labeling and making trips to the PO.

    Ladies I can't say enough of how easy it was to swap out because of the wonderful way all y'all packaged up for me. You are a great...wonderful...terrific group to work with! When you received your "candy" I hope you find it satisfactory. I counted, then counted, then counted again your bags. However, I am human and I swapped 596 cotton sets (if I counted right...lol) and I believe 90 sets of Batik "candy". You must know there was no way I could count every bag full of candy, nor could I measure each square. I did spot checks and each giver seemed to have done a great job, in my eyes. If you find mistakes or are somehow unhappy with your packages, please PM me. Let's keep the thread our happy place and work any problems that are sure to arise in a private way. Remember everyone here is human.

    My last picture is of the wonderful gifts I received as hostess. I waited until now to post, not during the entire swap. I didn't want anyone to think gifts were required. I am humbled by the generosity of all of you though and I do look forward to another swap.

    I know some of you saw this thread in the picture section. I have to share in case any of you missed it. Justflyingin from Poland made a few quilts out of her scrap 2.5" squares. You MUST go see what she did!
