    Fall it is. My JoAnn's is closing down and moving 2 miles down rhe road. They have literally boxed it all up and just selling close outs. Said that they are moving it all and only receiving at the new location but it doesn't open until the 30th. Really didn't want to go to my LQS. She hasn't ordered any new fall. Oh well. Back to the stash!

    I had mine all cut and ready to go with a mixture of FQs, but with all of you requesting particular fabrics, I'm going to have to make another package if I get your names ...... if I have those fabrics that I want to share. I'm thinking you all are just toooo picky ...... and this was sender's choice ....... LOL!
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    Brenda will probably get names out this evening sometime, she has an awful lot going on in her household. It is senders choice MaryMo, just send the ones you have put together. I thought I would send fall fabrics because of other swaps, but I spied some that I will never use, a mixture of this and that and this is what I will be sending. It may be someone else's treasures, you just never know.

    I found a free pattern on line then I just started adding on to it. The thread cutter fitted perfectly around the neck and it can easily be removed to fit on your finger. The thimble fitted on the foot perfectly and can easily be removed. The threader I did have to use elastic to keep it on. I didn't know how to attach the seam ripper so I just made a pocket behind the needles. I had fun with this project so i made couple of more LOL.

    Glad you found the site because I forget where I find them. One day I will learn to write them down so I know where to go.

    Hmmm... Jaba you can just send it on to me. I do not use fall fabrics or Christmas. It is what is keeping me from joining. It seems most people are doing fall fabrics and since it is sender's choice, well my guess is what I'd get. Jaba you have any 1930 or Civil War fabrics? Maybe I can send you my fall and Christmas stuff even as a side swap. a medium box full side swap?

    Me too. I'm disappointed the names weren't sent out today as promised....

    What is this about a bonus gift... the turtle? This is my first time to do this swap. Do people usually send extra things besides the FQs? I don't want to slight my partner!

    sewbiz we usually send fq's a few send something extra but not usually.. maybe a candy bar if the weather is cooperating nothing big. I sometimes send an extra fat quarter or a larger piece but its pretty much fq's your safe! of course if bdawn has me I am going to score big time with her Tommy Turtle! he is too cute for words.

    I was checking and my partner did not say what kind of fq's she would love to get.. wish she would. I have fall cut and ready but maybe she isn't into fall.. argh pirates! lol.. well at this rate she might just get fall and I will sit here and pray she likes them

    Elisabrat, since you asked what kind of fq's your partner would like: if you have me, I like historical reproductions (like civil war or 30s); but honestly, I will be happy with whatever I get! This is my first swap of this kind, and part of the fun is the "surprise" of sender's choice.
