    Started swapping, hope to finish tonight. Here are the swaps for the rest of the year, so you can start stock piling your stash.

    September -- Winter Holiday with a Noodle Twist of BRIGHTS (get those sunglasses back out)
    October -- Passionately Pink with a Noodle Twist of Hodge Podge (anything in your stash, each "set" must be different)
    November -- I-Spy with a Noodle Twist of Neutrals
    December -- NO SWAP!!! Family time and time for a Break!!!

    As for 2013, I'm going to continue to host a few swaps, but not monthly. With a little one and all of my other commitments, it is getting really hard on me to keep this going monthly. Also, I have noticed my swaps are getting smaller and I am guessing it is due to the price of fabric. By going to fewer swaps and longer times to get the fabrics in, it should help on the pocketbook, I know it will for me. I'm going to host 4 swaps next year. The first one will open in January and will be due in my hands by early/mid March. The second one will open at the end of March and will be due in my hand by early/mid June. The third one will be open at the end of June and will be due in my hands by early/mid September. The fourth one will be open at the end of September and due in my hands by early/mid November. Still trying to sort out themes for those swaps, so if you have ideas or swaps that you have really enjoyed over the last year and a half, let me know. So, until then...let's finish this year with a BANG!!!

    Doctor said to use my best judgement NO LAUGHING NOW No trashcans, cars or pedestrians got in the way either. ( had to try out the distance vision and body stamina. Can't lift, but a trip for a milkshake was good.

    Just read you SWAP PLANS for next year and I agree with everything you said.......I would like to have a "red and white" swap and even a "black and white" like Luv had but in the smaller blocks. Been watching the Diamond Boom you are in and I so admire to the participants' ability to design blocks and select colors to go with the submitted fabrics......and they all have points with the required 1/4 inch seam allowance!!!!!!!!!

    Have fun with whatever you decide to do.

    Thank you!!! It was a rough decision, however, I need to get back to having fun, not feeling like a chore. However, I'm loving the boom swap and LOVE the blocks I'm getting back...just need to get busy making and mailing mine out now

    Hey ladies. Sorry, some things came up and life got in the way a little with this swap. I will be mailing out in 2 sets. The first set will go out tomorrow and will include:
    quiltingdragon
    savannahrandons
    girlsfour
    squires1042
    KimmieH
    frustratedquilter
    Jarenie
    purplecat
    marybrace
    sapdoggie

    All the rest will be mailed out on Thursday.

    Thank you ladies for understanding. I've been keeping up with a 2-1/2 year old, doing my job at work as well as taking over for an admin who was on maternity leave, however she is back and I'm still doing her job, and mine and another lady while she is out at training. I'm a little stretched thin, but getting back to normal. Again, thank you for being understanding through this and I'm sorry I wasn't more communicative about it.

    Thanks for the update, I know the feeling lost two people last Friday, which is a 1/3rd of my staff, but still have to cover 24 hours a day 7 days a week. So with a 15 month old grandson at home, sleep is a premium. Hang in there, appreciate what you do and I sympathize with you.

    Sorry I wasn't able to get in on the new swap, guess I was just a little too slow. Oh well next time.
