    [.....are you using certain fabrics or just any???[/QUOTE]

    For the checkerboard I'm trying to keep it medium to light pastels with floral patterns...I'm picking them out from the "candy" I received. the while fabric is a very faint white on white...I want it to be soft & pretty looking...

    Ok - March birthday envelopes went out Saturday 3-2-2013 - Happy Birthday to the following!!
    Mary Ellen
    Jarenie
    Erin

    Postage was .86 - I used #10 envelopes and they had the 60 degree template in them. I was told that normal postage was .66 with .20 added on because they could not go through the machine.

    A #10 envelope is a standard business size (4 1/8 x 9 1/2) envelope. You can buy them at Staples, Walmart, etc. I usually buy a box of 100 for less than $4.00. They are useful for all kinds of things, including holding applique pieces.

    Maling my March birthday charms out today. Mary Ellen should get her charms from me on Wednesday at the latest since she is kinda local.

    I went and bot birthday cards over the weekend and they bagged them and handled them to me I put them in the front of the cart with my purse and left them in the cart. UGH!

    Mary Ellen, I mailed your birthday candy Saturday morning. The best part about this birthday candy is no calories!!! Bur it is so yummy!!!!

    Mamaskeeto, I feel your pain. I just bought a new shower curtain rod and did the same thing. Went back hoping that someone had turned it in. Oh yeah, fat chance on that happening. At least you remembered to take your purse out of the cart. That would be a real pain to replace all of the contents of it.

    also the easiest way to figure out the correct answer is notice there is only 8 questions....so only 8 letters in the name. We have only two people with 8 letters in their board name. (Wanda Lou and WMUTeach) If you figured out the first clue (L) you would see that only one person has an L... Wanda Lou.

    By the way I had my husband try and figure it out....he said that I'm crazy so sorry guys it will be easier next time.

    But we had 3 smarties: SheriR, Honchey and NLS yeah ladies

    Well I have to admit I didn't get all the answers. But when I had most of them I scrolled through the names and picked WandaLou because she had the right combo of letters I did have... Ok... It makes sense to me lol. Barb you're not crazy, your creatively clever!
