    Gaijin, I found not your card but the extra something that you included. And yes it looks like I wrote givio twice, one should be your name. I am embarrassed but so glad that I found it. Thank you so much.

    I remember doing this swap several years ago, glad to see it keeps active. If this is still going for 2019, I think I'm going to do it again. I loved it and received so many beautiful squares. I have been away for a year or two from many swaps, but you know, I miss them. Till next year ladies, enjoying you guys post and pics. Mary

    I mailed both of my squishes yesterday. I expect both to be delivered on time. I sent one express mail so it gets there on time. You should get it Monday or Tuesday. I know it has gone at least one city away, based on tracing this AM.

    Good morning Ladies, We had a beautiful day here yesterday, Cleaned up the back patio. I got out my new patio furniture out, still need to buy cushions. Going to rain today, so I will be puttering around in my sewing room.

    I'm loving all the pictures of the projects using the candy squares, keep them coming. There are some really beautiful quilts being made. I'm always in awe of the talent in this group.

    I have three Pair of pants to hem, just a little something that irritates me. Just because I sew doesn't mean I want to hem your pants. It's family so what am I to do? Enough venting for the day.

    Many wishes for a great day to all
    Happy Sewing, Lisa E.

    Glad you had a beautiful day yesterday. I am in SW Minnesota and we did NOT have a beautiful day yesterday. We had a blizzard with 18" of snow! On April 14th! It feels like we have had winter forever this year!

    This is my second year doing this swap and I really enjoy it. A good way to collect lots of 2 1/2" squares.

    I continue cutting 2.5" squares for more variety. I am finding fabric I forgot I bought. It is always fun to discover hidden treasures.

    LOL...I did that as well. A friend called it an "archaeological" find, a treasure trove of fabrics I'd forgotten about.

    Also, I finally finished the top I'd been working on for years. It's a Fading Charms pattern made up of 788 squares from my stash, from candy square swaps including the birthday squares swaps for the last few years and fabric from friends and from some old turkey reds as the background fabric. Now I've got to decide how to quilt it.

    That looks nice Janice. I've got one going as well but started it all in blues, it's going to take awhile but I am in the 4 x 4 round so at least it's some progress.

    Great quilt Janice. I am still trying to finish up my AK Crossroads from the quilt along that was lead over two years ago on here. Guess that also makes it a UFO.

    Haven't had much free time for anything lately. My work has just been crazy with many long days and piles to high to even take a small break to play on the internet. However, the project is winding down and my piles are shrinking so hopefully i a month, or two, my life will return to normal.
    Hostess for the Ornament Swap. Watch for details coming later on this year. Come join in on all the fun

    Miquilt, the candies I sent were just returned to me marked "return to sender, attempted - not known, unable to forward." The address is exactly the same as the one Barb sent. I guess this is just a goof since everyone else got the same address. I'll resend tomorrow. I'm sorry they will be a few days late.

    Janice, I have made The fading squares twice and would honestly do it again but sadly I have used so many of may 2.5 squares that I do not have a good variety any more. How sad. September is coming and my choices will increase again! I do cut 2.5's from scraps that just happen with quilting but not enough to make this stunner. Your red shows up as brown which is pretty nice too. I used a mottled royal blue on one and black on another. 788 down and thousands more to go, right?

    Janice McC, I just love 'turkey red'! I suppose the colors always look different in person than on a monitor, as it seems a little brownish on my monitor too. The quilts always look better in person. With the last block swap I did on QB, I was so pleased with the pictures of the blocks that were posted, but in person, wow, they were really nice. :-)

    This past weekend I made this baby quilt: Disappearing 9 patch. Really like this pattern. I made it before and will continue to make this. I have no idea why they are sideways!

    Hello ladies....

    You will find in your PM box a message from me with May birthday addresses. I am going to Paducah tomorrow for a quilt show and won't be back until Sunday April 22. Please notice a few things about the May girls.

    Jaba is on May 1st...so getting hers out sooner than later is better.

    Also Gaijin's birthday is on May 23rd. She is going to be gone on her birthday please try and get hers out early also. Consider her birthday May 10th. for delivery. However you will not be considered late if you wait until the end of the month. Only for Gaijin. Sorry Gaijin I kinda messed up your dates. Hopefully everyone will delight you with your packages early.

    And JuanitaBean well didn't want to leave her out....she just wants to do a happy dance every time she receives a package!

    I will try and check in during the week. Have a great week.

    Barb
