    Jan, I gifted mine. The deal is if your shipping even in priority its by zip. so my fabrics the ones from my sister went for 10.00 that is a lot. I think do you want these scraps or do you want say a yard of nice fabric. I vote a nice of lovely fabric myself. I am happily using some Christmas scraps. Now those are lovely. I think f4's you got my attention. tiny squares? OMG I grow those too. A great person to ask is Goldendog55 she is pretty up on what that stuff is worth I think

    Now I got my first mug rug partner. She is a lovely lady from Christchurch New Zealand. I went there on my honeymoon oh some odd 25 or so years ago. wow. its starting summer over there I believe. make anyone a tiny tiny bit jealous? does me. so what to make a kiwi do you think? I need to represent here girls any ideas of a tiny care package I am all ears. while we wait of course for the runners to come flying in..
    ps that is a very nice little candy cane stripe runner good for both winter and well Valentines day and fourth of July and well multi runner galore!

    WELL Nancia smarty pants she isnt in this swap and the internationals I guess are not a secret.. we got each other at least I think we did as she wrote and said as much. now if we didnt she is getting two mug rugs and I got a lovely chat with her. She is truly really a nice young lady. I think I found what I would like to attempt to make. key word. attempt. those things are sure small and then to make small special.. that is the challenge i think.

    I am in such a good mood like its sitting right herein my chest this morning I feel grand the sun is coming up slightly over the mountain so right now the trees on top. look golden in the morning light its so pretty to watch them glow like that and soon the bark on them will glow red in the morning glow. yup its a gorgeous day. time to finish my side swap here for my dear friends. and make new friends by making magnificent mug rugs that impress so much I am a star. yah right. shushup.

    AND guys that household swap has a mid march return your swap date surely you want to sign up for that/ dont you need potholders? placemats? dishtowels? another tablerunner? a scrap thread holder that thingy that you toss your cut off threads as you sew. darned the name is escaping me like gone with the wind right now fling right out my window.. turkeys dont eat that I need it give it back ohhh nooo. dustys mom could use a couple more sign ups if you want to be so good as to go check it out..

    Jaba .. So jealous!! What great scraps to have. I'm hoping to make a nice scrappy nine-patch for our beds. I might have enough for one of the twins right now depending if I try to put them on point. I am hoping to use my white & cream scraps to sash the blocks in to give them a more co-hesive (sp?) look to them.

    Well Kiffie I'm soooo happy that you like your not-so-little table runner. Those snowflakes took be a tad longer than I expected when I started to Hand Applique them done. So there might be a some variasion in the stitch length, if I worked too longer my eyes started to get a bit wonky on me. LOL.

    My mail ran today and no runner yet .... I'm patiently waiting to see what I will receive.

    Watching for my runner too. It will arrive when the time is right.

    Elisabrat is right, need all the partners we can get over at the home decor awap! Right now we're at 9 participants without me. I will be participating though! Well, unless we're an odd number I guess. Then we'll see what's going on. Anyway, lots of time to make something awesome, so come on over & bring a friend! (Just don't bring your ferrets...they might want to nest in the material, lol!)

    I've been waiting for a cat reference to slide this in, lol. My best friend in junior high had 2 ferrets & I think all they ever did was nest when they were around anything soft. My friend Sara has a ferret that thinks she's a cat, and a cat that thinks she's a princess, but only Sara has a tiara, lol.

    Nah Nancia gets better she thought we both were trading with me so when she wrote and said so I believed it. turns out she has me (now who is giving out secrets?) and I have two other swappers stateside in the mug rug swap. I do have the inside scoop on what she wants so if you have Sharon from Christschurch in NZ hit me up I will share all!
    LOL the downside of all that? my partners dont post so how to work with that. Learned something new today. We have zip to bemoan about price wise for even our nicest fabrics at 12.99 a yard. NZ new fabric modern ie moda is.. 30NZ dollars per meter. check out the conversion on that then come back and say yeah who wants to go to NZ for a quilt shop hop? what the bus is empty? ok for those who dont know its currently little bit over 26.00 per yard. ( a meter is like .9 percent of a yard) so I will be shopping here at home and smiling. Just told her about connecting threads even with shipping.. what a deal right?

    $26/yard? OUCHIES! Let's see, I got a remnant that was 75"x 64" in Denmark for about $6.25. There was another that was about that size that was double that though. The label showed it'd been in the remnants for about 6 months and they still wouldn't come off the price at all though. I'll have to grab one of the others I got and see what the prices were on them.

    There, clothing is expensive, but thread is cheap! I got a 2000 meter spool of really good thread at Christmas for $4. Baby clothes there are about 2-1/2x's the price of what they are if you go to Ross or Marshall's though. So, when my boyfriend's brother and sister-in-law come here to visit, they usually bring 1 change of clothes and the day after they arrive they hit both stores and stock up. Then they come back in 1-2 years and do it again! We went and spent about $500 picking up baby clothes for their new arrival. They asked that we "clean them out" from sizes birth to 24 months, so we did. Got some great deals there and have taken advantage of some good sales on Carter's web site too. We got one outfit half price & it would have been almost $50 if they'd bought something similar there.

    So, the SIL is keeping an eagle eye on the fabric store for me for cool remnants. There's going to be more to come! (That reminds me, I still have fabric in my car that my boyfriend doesn't know I bought off the yard sale group on Facebook....oops!)

    I'm checking posts almost daily watching for all the runners yet to be shipped - hoping for inspiration to complete another tabble runner or topper.
    Fabric prices have been going up at local quilt shops but nothing like NZ - ouch that one hurts the pocketbook.
    Girlfriend and I usually do shop hops around our area and participate in the big state shop hop. It finally dawned on me that the bundle of fabric reward for visiting all the stores participating in the hop could be purchased several times over for the price of gas we spent getting to all the different shops; I quit smoking almost six years ago and all that money I wasted on my physical health is now spent on my mental health - I buy fabric and notions - it was the perfect trade off, now I have something special to show for my money.
    Be good to yourself - do one thing each day that makes you smile.

    Well ladies, I need a little advice. According to my delivery confirmation, my table piece (not a rectangle because of the recipients table design) arrived on 1/10/13. I have not heard from the recipient as yet and a picture has not been posted. I know how busy some people get so I am not being pushy. I have sent a PM to her this morning. If I do not receive an answer by tomorrow, should I post the picture I took? Just asking for your advice. Thanks.

    Sure, we want to see what you sent. And she should let you know that she received it, but unfortunately that doesn't always happen.

    We are having a snow storm, I had to leave and pick up my two teenage children from school. When I returned,. I had a very nice PM from dconroy84 telling me how nice she thought the centerpiece was and that the hexagon was perfect for the dimentions of her table. I am going to post a picture of the items I sent.
