    Default Did you hear me sqwee!!

    My sqwee was loud, really loud. Need all caps there to go along with the “old lady snoopy dance”.
    I found my quilt blocks that I drafted. L=light, M=medium etc.
    Finishes at 12.5. More then just 2.5 needed. I’m going to use my charms and cakes too. Wait, 2.5” strips from jelly’s work too.

    Now I don’t know how to post a photo from my mobile. Hopefully they are here. Need to make up some to see how they do. Going l-d, l-r, top left to bottom right in a rainbow. But not before my kitty is done with them. He claimed them for himself.

    I'm finally home! I have my three May birthday envelopes all ready to go out to Gaijin, Macybaby and Irishmom tomorrow. I will warn you ladies, they are covered in shipping tape so they will be a pain to get into! I recommend a seam ripper run along the back flap of the envelope.

    I also got a second envelope of candies from Carolyn Robinette, which I am sending back. I think the mail is just taking much longer these days. I hope the three I'm sending out tomorrow will arrive by the birth dates.

    Sewbizgirl, Glad to hear you are back safe and sound. Not picking on you SBG, but I have seen "real names" on several of our postings. Swappers, please always, always put your screen name or alias on the outside of your envelope. This lets us know the package is from one of us and then we can respond with thanks to the correct person. It also keeps us safe from the random "creepy people" that get into the QG. We don't want any one harassed becasue they found a real name and were clever enough to track a member down.

    Wendy, your photos arrived! Get us some measurements when you are ready and have worked out any glitches and your pattern could be turned into a quilt along. You could become a star among us 2.5 friends!

    I'm sorry.. If there is no board name on the envelope I assume they are ok with their real names being used. Many even use their real name as their username. I couldn't open the package to look, because I'm "refusing" it so it gets back to her, and you can't send back opened mail.

    Just finished my first wall hanging quilt. I started quilting to make my sister a 40th's Birthday present. She never got that one because it took me so long to make it. 10 years later, she is finally getting a quilt for her office. Hopefully she is going to like the rainbow color. I am planning to make another one like this, but not rainbow color.
