    My box is 2/3 full. Going through mom's boxes of fabric is a trip through time. I found material from outfits I made in high school (60's), outfits she had made, pieces of quilts she made for each of the grandkids. Don't have any idea what to do with the polyester fabric. It has been a wonderful trip.

    I'm traveling for work until the 29th, so if you PM me and I don't respond, bear with me.

    In the meantime, is anyone attending the Natural Products Association Expo in Baltimore this week? That's where I am!! Let me know!

    I am in. I have decided to sit out the Doll Quilt swap next time due to a diagnosis yesterday of thyroid cancer. I will need surgery, but this is something I can get ready now.

    Lilrain I will add you to my list of good thoughts and prayers. I have a friend that had that about 40 years ago and she is absolutely fine today! Wishing you a speedy recovery! Meanwhile, welcome to this really fun swap!

    I've not started putting my box together yet, but I do have a box! Problem is, it's so hard to decide what to let go of. I have tons of fabric for stuffables, lots of block size panels (mostly nature stuff& Christmas), a good bit of kiddie fabrics that are bright & cheery but I don't know when or for what I'll use them, and lots of stuff that I look at and think I don't want to get rid of that or that it's too pretty to use, lol. I'm going to have to bite the bullet and put some stuff together here! I can't say that I don't have the fabrics to part with, just that it's hard to decide what to let go of! My fabric is like my children, but I'm sure we all feel that way.

    Once you know who you are swapping with you can send that person a PM to work out details like favorite colors or types of fabric.

    Oh..can't wait. I had the greatest partner last time...this is so much fun. I think I will wait to close my box until I know with whom I am swapping...I suspect I can send things that will fit her needs. Hope so!

    I've never swapped a box before, so here's what I came up with:
    Large shipping box (couldn't find medium box locally)
    150+ different fabrics in white, black, red, orange, pink, purple, blue, aqua, green, yellow, cream, tan, & brown.
    Most are fat quarters that have a cut or two. Maybe good box for a newbie to build a stash. Please tell me if I'm on the right track here.

    Thanks, Di, I was unsure of what to swap. I did save a 2" strip of each fabric for a quick quilt!

    I do not need or want yellow, black or grey, recently went a little overboard on a Steeler Nation quilt for darling daughter & do not plan to use that combination again, wheew....ugly, but she loves it, go figure!

    I love fat quarters and do not use much yardage. I hope this helps finding a swapper.

    That box is fabulous!

    I am working on names right now. We are leaving on a well-deserved vacation Friday night, so names will be sent out before then.

    I'd love nothing more than to devote my day to this, Sharon.. unfortunately there's this guy called "my boss" who thinks I should do work related to his business in exchange for money. It's the weirdest thing!

    Would you say he might be a little narrow minded? I am looking forward to getting my name too, but do take your time!!
    If you see someone without a SMILE, please give them one of yours!!

    I am so excited that I got my name. All I gotta do is tape up the box, address it and make a quick trip to the post office. Sulabug, your box will be in the mail Saturday morning!
