MacyBaby - I LOVE LOVE that quilt!! Great job with it - can't wait to see it quilted.

My cards will be going out tomorrow.

I was decorating my house this week and thought I would share this sweet little wall quilt I made a few years ago. I don't remember who provided the pattern. Even the ghost is done in scrappy whites. All squares are 2.5 inches.

Thanks for the share, IrishMom. Just one more way to put our little treats to work.

For those of your who have been watching closely, you're realizing that after October we only have one more birthday gal in this year's swap. So, I thought I would suggest joining the 12 Annual Ornament Swap hosted by our very own Hav4boys. (She does not know I am suggesting this.) It looks pretty simple, one person, one handmade ornament and due to be sent out in November. Just a suggestion and perhaps another way to spark our creativity.

Would anyone in this group be interested in doing a side Christmas/Winter Season Candies swap? Was thinking 50 candies, with no more than 2 of each fabric (25 different fabrics minimum). I also figured we could mail between now and November 15th.

Hello everyone, I also did not realize we were down to our last birthday. What month is our last birthday in?

MacyBaby, your side swap is a cool idea, but I am going to have to decline, as I don't have that many Christmas fabrics. Every year I only use them for the quilts we donate to hospitals in Dec, and every year I try to use up what I have for that year. So my stock stays low.

What a good idea Macy! If any of you are interested in this Holiday/Winter Side Swap, send me a message (PM) and I will match partners randomly. Let me know by October 30 and be ready to drop in the mail by November 15. I will post partners on November 2. Plenty of time to make something holiday or "winter-ish" before the snow flies"!!

Just for clarity the Holiday/Winter Side Swap would be as Macybaby suggested, 50 candies, with no more than 2 of each fabric (25 different fabrics minimum). If you wish to swap with more than one partner, I need to know and will match y'all up accordingly. Dig out the Christmas Candies!

The final birthday of our group is in January! And I have a contest for October/November all ready to go. Watch for it on October 20.

I would be happy to join in a winter/Christmas candy swap! I have a lot of Christmas fabrics. Will we be able to sign up to swap with a couple of partners?
