I would be thrilled to join next year's swap. Moving it to January or February is fine with me.

Your two cents has value here. Share your thoughts please. All in good time of course.
I'm interested in joining the swap again next year. I'd like it to start earlier too... January would be ideal for me. It's easier to remember a calendar year.

I thought I'd share a quilt that was juried into Houston this year. All of the birds were made from swap candies from previous years. My stock is getting low. I love making quilts from this swap.

Crispy -- I've been pulling my frogs as I find them in my stash just to keep them handy for the next swap. One can never have enough frogs around.

LOL! It was an "also ran," but I didn't expect a ribbon. My ultimate quilting goal was to get one juried into Houston. This one made it into the machine quilting category. That's hilarious because I hate to machine quilt! I can die a happy woman now.

I can see why it ended up in that category... the machine quilting is beautiful and meticulous.

So you made it into a 'hoity-toity' show! Kudos and congrats! Wish I could machine quilt like that.
