    Libster I looked at CT and saw so many good deals that could be used for future Booms... but in the end I was 'good' and didn't order. I have a stack of fabric I bought in Paducah that is sitting here, making me feel guilty!

    Boy did I mess up this morning... had an appt. for my "annual" (annual humiliation and ordeal...) with the ob/gyn, and I was seeing a new woman dr. (yay). I had responded to two appt. confirmation texts they sent out, and then last night forgot all about it and didn't set my alarm! So I slept right through my early morning appt today! They were able to get me another appt. in less than two weeks, so that's good. I'd much rather be here at my computer, chatting with you all and drinking coffee than 'in the stirrups' this morning, LOL.

    I love the fabric "maraige" on Connecting threads. Had to order 4-5 different colors for that price! I saw a thing on FB that they are having a HUGH fabric sale at a home in Boonville tomorrow...I keep saying "you don't need anymore fabric"...but... They did have 4-5 sewing machines for sale also and books and supplies, cutting mats..Might have to check it out!
    People may not remember what you looked like or what you said but they will always remember how you made them feel!

    Just a heads up for those of you not following the Dune thread. Watch out when you send your packages that you dont inadvertently ship in a Priority Express package. That word Express is a costly word in money and time. Accidentally a swapper shipped in an Express package (very easy to do theyre so similar) but paid for Priority. I would have had postage due of $18 if I accepted it. I had to refuse the package. If this had happened right at the due date, Id probably have still sent it back. So wed have either been delayed or wed have been short another swapper and I sure dont want either to happen! Caution swappers, its an absurdly easy mistake to make. Seems like those packages should look more dissimilar than they do. Boo. 😕

    My fabric was mailed out today I checked and double checked to make sure I had the right packaging . I also went online today at USPS to order more envelopes and was very careful to select the correct package.

    Just a quick FYI, this is one of the strangest rounds ever! Our Boomers are having difficulties left, right and sideways and the line-up keeps changing. Due to LJD's injury, she has dropped from both groups and understandably so. Serendipitously, another new to us swapper has come forward who will, I believe, fill the space in Dunes. Also, another swapper has withdrawn as of this morning but we will continue on this long and winding road we're on. Cognizant of what's happening around us, the Boom will go on and I, for one, will be happy to get making some blocks in Wave. I'm ready. Well, except for the fact that I don't have my fabric picked out yet. Oh, dear!

    BTW, F8 packages are rolling in steadily now. One more just arrived 5 minutes ago! In another day or so, I'll post who I've received from so everyone can keep track if you choose.

    OK, I've got a couple of more emails to write, not the least of which is to our new person.

    Have a peaceful and healthy day, Waves!

    Boom Biz - Communication

    There's one important thing I feel the need to reiterate. Communication is essential in this swap. When everyone joined the swap, you agreed to keep in touch on a weekly basis. You may post every day, 3 times a day or once every few days, but please, not less than once a week. (If you will be out of touch for some reason, vacation or the like, try to let me know in advance please.) A lot of info passes through these threads, info you may need. I don't want to clog up everyone's email or PM boxes with this tidbit or that tidbit. Please come here on a regular basis and read the things you've missed since the last visit. Subscribing to the thread would be helpful if you haven't yet done so. There are a couple of options about how to see the posts so check it out under "thread tools" above the first post at the top of each page. It's on the right hand side as I see it. It may be different with other browsers.

    Anyway, what I don't want to do ever again is to have to track anyone down. It gets old fast. When I'm emailing and PM'ing and posting for two weeks and getting no response from the person whose attention I'm trying to attract, well, it's not good. I get cranky. So, please try to respond to me or to your fellow Boomers so nobody has a reason to be cranky. Booms need to be fun for everyone. Even the meanie who insists you keep in touch. Thank you!

    Lastly, tomorrow I will post the new "line up". With several last minute changes, what you have is now out of date. I'll also start posting the F8s as they come in. Speaking of that, the carrier just arrived and it looks like at least one more package is here. Oh, goodie! Fabric to play with.

    Janice, I didn't note which group should get which fabrics since they were both 19 F8 and almost everyone is getting a different fabric, so you can decide.

    Some will get black/white to finish the Black/White/splash of color quilt from a couple of booms ago.
    Some will get black/red to finish my black and red quilt from the black/white/splash of color boom since I had several people use red I thought it would be cool to do one with just red/black/white ( my high school colors).
    Some will be getting blue/yellow so I have enough to finish a quilt from a swap I did years ago when I first found the board and the swap group.

    Boom Biz - updated member list, F8s, Jaba's F8s

    Here's the updated Membership list for Waves. Those with names in bold type I've received F8s from already.

    annt59
    Cheesehead
    coullmills
    hav4boys
    ibex94
    Janice McC
    JayneW
    joanelizbay
    Libster
    Mona G

    moonrise
    QuilterMomma
    sewbizgirl
    terriamn


    Waves has 14 members, lower than I anticipated but still very workable. Everyone in Waves will send me 19 f8s. Each person will make one block for every member other than yourself (13) and then one additional block for 6 other members so you will make and receive 19 completed blocks back. ***However, those who have offered to make a block for our Boom Pal Jaba will receive an additional F8 so you will be making 20.***

    Jaba's 20 F8s arrived yesterday and everyone who offered to make a block for her will receive one. Thank you to all who offered and remember you don't need to send them early, just include them with your other completed blocks when you ship back to me.

    If anyone spots an error, please let me know. Thanks!

    Sorry I haven't posted much. I got the call that my elderly mother was ill so I had to leave town suddenly. I didn't want to cast a sad shadow on this happy group so I've been quiet. My fabrics are cut, packaged and will be mailed tomorrow.

    Coullmills, hope your mother is doing much better.

    Had the grandkids this weekend they just left to go back home, they are 5 and 8 and are very well behaved. But whew...I am pooped out, too much to even think about having a cocktail or a glass of wine. I know in my heart though that I deserve it! It rained all day today so we were limited to indoor games.

    Hiya tjdugas! So glad the surgery was successful!! Sewbiz is going to be adopting all sorts of critters before long. Kass, did you undo the seams on the original turtle block to make the one with the curves? Or did you cut new fabric to add to the block and then disassemble the seams? Lovely work. GramE I may have to track down good kaleidoscope fabric for the next BOOM.....

    Reminder! When you send your F8s, be sure to enclose either $7.25 cash or a prepaid label or envelope. No stamps please. And you do not need to send me an envelope. Ive got dozens of the padded ones just for the Booms.

    Okay... mine went out today. When you send fabric with complementary fabric it fills the envelope up. I decided to go with a box for safe travels.

    I did need one more F8 so I through this one it. I am going to make my grandson a nap quilt and will use the block at a center piece. No requirements... just have fun with this piece.Name:  BOOM 21 fabric.jpg
