    I want to get them all done while the weather is bad, as soon as the spring comes I will be out in my yard playing in the dirt!!

    One more day to sign up ladies!! I have been cutting like crazy. I discovered that it is much faster for me to layer a bunch of FQ's and rotary cut them than to use my GO and cut up scraps. I'm burnt out with the scrap cutting.... going to finish my charm paks by cutting up fat quarters!!

    I started cutting up my scraps last night and have 34 piles going. Now I still have a ways to go before I get 50 in each pile, but at least I have a start. Going to cut more squares now.

    Today is the last day for sign up. I am will send a list (PM) with addresses each month on the 20th. At that point please get packages ready for mailing. It is up to you if you want to mail them all together at the beginning of the month or wait until it is closer to their actual birthday. Please try and get everything to the birthday person by their birthday.

    We have 30 people signed up, that is what we had last year and it was a great amount.

    I will be posting here everyone that is included in the swap and their board name and birthday . Please let me know if I missed anyone or have a mistake.

    I found the post. I already put all my charms in snack size biggies. Going to see what I can do with that. I'm thinking I will bring 2 envelopes to the post office and ask how much to send each.
    If I do I will let you all know the results.

    If you haven't reached your 35 yet, may I join? This sounds like a wonderful thing to do and Lord knows I have plenty of 2.5" squares!

    Hello Ladies

    sorry I haven't been around this week. I thought I might miss out on the fun stomach flu that is going around...but no it found me right after I was getting over a cold! Sicker then a dog for 3 days. Still can't eat....that might be a good thing could lose a few (many) pounds. But no food just means no energy! So today I am "catching up" on life! Slowly!

    First of all I would like to welcome everyone to "round 2" of the birthday swap. Last years swap was fun, we met new people, learned different things that happened in their lives, saw pictures of projects they made while building friendships. Some of us lost loved ones, and pets, while other welcomed grandchildren and in-laws. What a year!!! I hope that this year we will continue the tradition of family. We are all one big family sharing and learning with one thing in common... the love of quilting.

    Last year I would do questionnaires ....you would all fill them out...then I would do a contest....Plan on that again this year! Hope you like the contests!!!

    This year I am going to have a contest on the DAY AFTER A BIRTHDAY. I will ask the birthday person to send me a PM on that day to let me know who they have received packages from. YOU CAN ONLY PLAY if she has received her package by her birthday. I am trying to change the idea that as long as it is her month "it's okay" It is her birthday...she should be celebrated on HER day. After all ...wouldn't you! So with that said mail her package a week before and you will be good!

    One more thing ......you must send 50 DIFFERENT 2.5" squares. They must be cotton. Must be cut with rotary cutter. Also only send fabrics that you would put in your quilt. I say if it is ugly toss it! I chuckle because one of my quilting buddies that I quilt with on Wednesday nights invited me to a swap of "UGLY" fabric. I didn't do the swap but asked her to bring in what she received back. YEP they were UGLY! NOPE not in the eye of the beholder.....NOPE just UGLY! She said she is going to make an ugly quilt! Life is too short for that! I'm just wondering???? does ugly fabric make a beautiful quilt. I guess when she finishes her "ugly" quilt I will let you know.
    All kidding aside...send what you would want to receive!

    I have been contacted by a few others that would like to join us. I have agreed to open it to them if they give me all their information by today. FEB 28th. That way we start our new swap on March 1 with all quilter on board. I will not add anyone after today.

    Sorry it is so long...see what a few days out of commission can do to a girl.

    Stay healthy!
    Barb
