    I wanted to do a just batik swap but worried not so many could do that type of swap. Sooooo we get our "Batil Twist". Luv, you can always send batiks as your main AND your twist

    I just got back from the post office and they are on their way. The gal said you should have them by Thursday. Now I just need to be patient until the time to find them in my mail box.

    I was going to take my time cutting and send them in the last week. Guess I'd better put a fire under it!

    Each set can be different, but must each set be different? In other words, could I take 50 different fabrics, cut 10 squares from each fabric, sort them into piles so each pile had 50 different fabrics, and send you 10 identical sets?

    Ladynredd, some ladies are cutting up scraps so they may have sets that are different. I'm cutting my sets from strips so all of my sets will be the same but with 50 different 2.5" squares. Does this help?

    Happy Day! So much candy in the mail! I bet my mail lady is glad my box is super-size. Today it needed to be!

    I have received from:
    Fraew – 9/1
    Lisa_wanna_b_quilter – 9/4
    Marytoddliz – 9/7
    Carrot – 9/7
    Jannie – 9/7

    Girls…the candy is soooo sweet!!! I think I made my deadline to far away…. And I know I AM GOING TO NEED A BIGGER STORAGE BIN… My storage bag is already full and five swappers filled it. I am such a noobie hostess. LOL

    Love you ALL!

    I got 31 fabrics cut, 19 to go... glad to have the extra time though with this being the first week of school, not to mention the fact that obsessive cutting gave me a back knot lol. Will probably have them all done and sent out within two or three weeks. Sorry to those who are hoping for a super early finish
