    Worse case scenario I will mail out by Monday, which is on time. Barely

    Thanks, Red, for all you do! Excited that fun charms will be here soon!

    I remember seeing a pattern similar to the lollipop one that was a magnifying glass. It would be more applique, but cool idea.

    That is a magnifying glass Pinkflowers, or it is supposed to be.

    Oh, okay. The pattern I saw before had a dark fabric around the outer edge of the magnifying glass.

    That's why Red said it looked like a lollipop and she would make the handle thicker.

    Thank you Red... please don't stress out over getting the packages mailed. We'll enjoy them whenever they show up. You have done a great job keeping up with everyone. Not your fault if people drop out and don't tell you!

    Thanks for the words of comfort, friends!

    Your packages are in the mail with the exception of Hav4: You didn't have your address on your ziplock, and the main envelopes were already taken to the dump by the time I figured it out. If you PM me your address, I'll take it to the Post office immediately

    We ended up with some Really fun prints this time around. I can see why people get hooked on these things! I had no idea some of these were even in print. Ritz crackers? Cracked me up!!

    "hotdog sticks" = corndogs for me!

    I gave up baking and started quilting so I'd quit eating my mistakes (and getting fat). Don't need fabric that makes me hungry!

    My charms arrived today! There are some great ones, too. I've not seen most of them before. Score!!!!

    There were lots of fussy cuts, too. Macybaby sent some really nice ones. (I hate to fussy cut, but appreciate the effort of those who do them.)

    Thanks Red for hosting this.

    I-Spy charms are fantastic! So many different and unusual designs that I look forward to making a couple of I-Spy quilts. Thanks to those who sent the extras and special little treats - your thoughtfulness is much appreciated. Red, thank you for coordinating and keeping us all happy!

    I am hoping mine show up today - really looking forward to getting them.

    I went through my stash and pulled up everything I thought would work for I spy and was happy I could get enough from my stash.

    I've always wanted to make an I spy quilt and I'll finally have enough variety of blocks to make some!

    Just found this magnifying glass pattern. It's appliqued, so I probably wouldn't make it, but it's darling. It's also free.

    I had a great time with this swap, thank you to everyone who participated and all the extra goodies people sent. You are some of the most generous people I have met online. Huggsss!!!


    What about a future swap? Is there enough interest in another 5" swap (may be something other than I-spy), for November? My only concern is the mailing deadline would be closer to Christmas, which is busy for some folks.
    Or should we do one with a return After Christmas? Thoughts? Ideas?

    I have myself absorbed in Christmas fabrics. I don’t suppose anyone would want to swap those?

    I got mine and thank you all - and all the extras. Will be taking them to quilting group tomorrow to spread them out and look at each and every one.
    I would not be swapping until after the holidays. Maybe spring pastels?

    Red, thank you for organizing this swap and keeping everyone happy. I received my I Spy charms and was very surprised by the different interpretations people used. I realized my mindset was for a very young child and I was pleasantly reminded that both young and old can enjoy an I Spy. I confess I agonized over my choices and ended up purchasing the food only because I (wrongfully, mind you) thought people would not want what I had. So much for my first swap. Onto the next. Are we supposed to be doing feedback for this and if so, how?

    The more I play with my I-Spy charms the more I am so excited to get them stitched into a quilt or two. I appreciate each and every one of you who spent time in selecting and cutting these charms.

    I sure could use some time in sewing them (and all the other charms I've collected) but at the same time I would feel lost without this swap.

    I like Pamela's idea about swapping Christmas, just not sure how many people would be swapping.

    Anything you decide is fine with me. Red, you've been so good at organizing us! Thanks for all you do.
    Make it a scrappy happy day!
