    sustraley, that block looks like the siggi block we just did with sharonB. SUper easy and fun to do..I like the look of them all together like that.

    Twisted Quilter posted this link on the 1.5"postage stamp swap. It would be perfect for this size stamps too.

    SheriR just sent you a PM and I can't stay away from a good 2.5" swap. I'm in for 7 sets and no twists. Since I've signed up can I change my mind and increase my sets and twists if time allows for me in the future?

    I've got you down! Mamaskeeto, of course if you want to send more than seven sets it will be ok! Limit is 20 cotton and 5 batik twists.

    SheriR,

    I mailed my 20 sets yesterday! Even though it is international, mail from Japan usually arrives quickly-about a week or so!

    Sheri, I bet you didn't that this swap would be so large, did you? Think of all the bags from all of these people put in a big pile. I hope you have a big table (or a living room)!

    @sustraley - it's so exciting. I'm having so much fun.

    @goldendog55 - Oh I really am going to put them in a big BIG bowl before I swap them. Lol. And no I really didn't know it would be this well received but I'm thrilled! My hubby thinks is funny how I get so excited when I get another "candy" package!

    How about a picture of the pile before you start swapping? I'll bet it is amazing!
