    Thanks, Susan, for letting us know. Please disregard the concerned letter I sent.
    Have a wonderful day! If you need to contact me, please use the e-mail address on my profile page. Sometimes I don't get notifications that I have a PM here. Please note that I'm usually unavailable on weekends, but I'll get back to you on Monday.

    Hello Ladies,

    I just got home from visiting with Susan/PinkLotus and I have good news and not so good news.
    The good news is Susan has 4 more sets of blocks that should be mailed out tomorrow with delivery confirmation.
    The other sets will be worked on and mailed soon as possible. Susan did not mean to be away from the board with out communication for so long. Actually she gave her login information to her hubby to post for her... but you know how men are sometimes.... lol... he forgot!
    She did mention that one set was to be mailed overseas and she needed to contact that person about postage...... I truly feel better about this situation and all the blocks being returned. Sometimes unexpected things happen in our lives that just throws us for a loop and we dont' know how to handle the situation.

    The not so good news is that Susan is ill. She had a hard time just catching her breathe while talking with me.
    She goes back to the doctor I think she said this Friday. She did experience and still is, a personal crisis. I won't go into details as that is not for me to say. Right now the best way we can help, is to be patient about the swap, all will get their blocks back. The second thing we can do for Susan, her husband and four children is to include them in your prayers and prayer chains. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to send me a PM.

    I do hope this calms everyones fears or concerns about the swap. After seeing Susan, I truly have no doubt that you will all see the blocks arriving in your mailbox soon.

    Thanks y'all !

    So sorry to hear about your illness, Susan. Thank you so much to all who are helping out. As someone said, you hear about scams and things, so you just don't know what to think. Hope all goes well. Thank you for sending mine.

    These 4 packages went out swapped today (7/19) are:

    - Lisa T. in GA
    - Beth N. in WA
    - Sheri R. in TX
    - Robin Lee P. in ND

    Mailed (7/18) swapped packages:

    - Peggy B. in MT
    - Felicia A. in CA
    - Beverly H. in UT
    - Lynn W. in VT

    I told my husband to ship them with Delivery Confirmation, and I have those numbers if you ladies need them. He is the one handling the shipping, and being a real trooper. PLEASE POST when you receive your blocks just to make double sure you got them.

    That's over half of the packages, as alot of people dropped out at the end, or never did send. I didn't get anything done today as I didn't have a good day health wise. Tomorrow I will be busy at the hospital, and will probably be wore out. My plan is to get the rest mailed out by the first half of next week, but I will keep everyone updated of any delays, and post when packages have been mailed.

    Thank you everyone for your well wishes and prayers, as they are very,very much appericated. It was so nice to meet Lisa and the quilty hug she gave me was really great and lifted my spirits.

    Squishy arrived today and I am delighted. Thank you so much. Wonderful colors and nice stitching. Should I contact each person I can by PM, or is this announcement adequate?
    Thank you for blocks go out to:
    Fraew
    Simply Addicted
    Bbemerald
    Annaquilts
    Margaret at Pegs Quilt Studio (2)
    Mainewoods Mammie
    Jaba
    Oz & Lily
    Veronika (Germany?)
    One block unmarked, and one is my own. I think now that I look at it, it must be a bit undersize.

    I'm more than pleased with my package today!!! I did two sets. Thank you Jaba, bemerald, Hopetoquilt, Oz&Lily, MaineWoodsMammie, moonrise, Fraew, simply addicted, and whoever sent the navy blocks(3). I Love them all. I plan on making one more square so I have 25...5x5, bordering them in black and making a queen size for my son's room.

    Thank you especially, pinklotus, for doing this swap. I hope your days are looking GOOD!!

    Post when you're done, I'd love to see it! I bet he'll love it. PinkLotus is doing a great job of mixing them up. Hope she's doing better.

    These 2 packages went out swapped today (7/23) are:

    - Ruth R. in ME
    - Jocelyn B. in NJ


    Mailed (7/19):

    - Lisa T. in GA
    - Beth N. in WA
    - Sheri R. in TX
    - Robin Lee P. in ND

    Mailed (7/18) :

    - Peggy B. in MT
    - Felicia A. in CA
    - Beverly H. in UT
    - Lynn W. in VT

    I told my husband to ship them with Delivery Confirmation, and I have those numbers if you ladies need them. He is the one handling the shipping, and being a real trooper. PLEASE POST when you receive your blocks just to make double sure you got them.

    My plan is to get the rest mailed out by Weds, but I will keep everyone updated of any delays, and post when packages have been mailed.

    I am glad everyone is liking what they are receiving. The numbers didn't work out that great at all. If you sent more than 1 set, you will get duplicates back. I am sorry about that, but as I mentioned the other day alot of people dropped out at the last minute, or never did send.

    Hello Veronika,

    I have your address, but I need you to send postage thru Paypal so I can have the funds to ship your blocks back to you. I don't have your personal email, so I have sent you a PM here through the QB. I have your blocks all ready to go, and once I receive the funds your swapped blocks will be shipped back.

    I am so excited to get my blocks. I am fine with some duplicates. I am going to throw in some blocks of my own to finish it off. Thanks again for running the block exchange. I will post pix when I get my blocks.
