If you can afford 4 such shipments at international rates, I'd say 'go for it!'
    A very good point! I have done secret pal a few times but will investigate the cost of just a padded envelope.

    Good morning. It's starting to warm back up a bit here. Looks like rain again much of next week but who really knows what will happen?

    Kass, I've just got to make my chicken quilt one day and in honor of Cricket, some must have clothes! Cricket is adorable.

    I'm still behind on 23. I cannot seem to make much headway. Every time I think I've got time, there's something else I must get done. One of yesterday's errands was picking up Mom's "cremains". Well, if you've never done that, it's a bit surreal. Terriamn, it's exactly as you say...reminders of sis...and not in a good way as I know you understand. Hugs.

    Re:23, RJLinkletter, you are welcome to join (I'd love some international swappers) but be aware that the shipping costs can be expensive and there are customs fees and forms to think of as well as time delays. We've had a few international swappers and although they paid the costs, I thought it was cost prohibitive but they went for it. Let me know if you have any questions. You can reach me at [email protected]. I'm in and out a lot right now and somewhat off my game due to my mother's death but I will get back to you. Please just allow me a few days. Thank you!

    Will probably be offline until Sunday. Later, Boomers.

    I won't have my extra Zuni fabric (the stuff I am designing) finished and printed it time, so this boom will probably be a rose /orange colored fabric and next one the Zuni.

    I've got both of my fabrics ready to mail. All I need to do is add the group name to each gallon bag along with the count of baggies included.

    GramE your Labyrinth quilt is gorgeous

    My fabrics for one group are all bagged up just need to add my request. Second group is ready to be bagged.

    Went to a retreat here in town last week where we sewed together blocks for quilt tops . They will be quilted and sent to Wrap a Smile or Quilts without Borders. Thankfully I was feeling fine and able to attend

    Morning! I'm feeling more like myself today. Had a terrible (fabulous) meltdown over the weekend that really was overdue and a big reason I feel more like myself, I'm sure. Not good to keep all that emotion locked up. That's a good thing as I've got several errands to run and life calls. Looks like rain is on the way again for the week. DH is in OK for the day and right near Prairie Quilt. Great guy that he is he's going to stop in and send me pix of the shop - not buy me fabric, but send me pix of what I'm missing. LOL. So DH! Hoping everyone has a pleasant week!

    GramE, your Labyrinth is beautiful!

    Libster, you are always right on top of the Booms, aren't you?!

    Terriamn, I've been so out of touch. I'm thrilled to hear you are feeling well and had a pleasurable time with your retreat! I hope this means that you are feeling like your old self, maybe even better. Glad you are ready to go with Boom 23, too.

    The Labrynth is great, GramE!

    Terri, what a fun picture. Can see just from your face that you are losing lots of weight! Glad you felt well enough to go to the retreat.

    Janice hang in there...

    Hope all the Dads in our lives had a great Father’s Day yesterday.

    Janice, I'm glad to hear you are feeling a bit more like yourself. A good cry can sometimes really be helpful. I know I can't bottle up emotions well.

    Looking forward to watching the next Boom! Wow, some of you are ready already!

    I was really hoping to give Hubby a baby for Father's Day, but Baby is quite content baking a bit longer. I'm due next week. Both my other babies came naturally on their due dates, so I shouldn't be surprised. Some days I feel like I can keep going, and other days I'm begging Baby to be born, lol!

    Janice, good to hear that you are doing somewhat better. Looking forward to the next boom. I might join in both this time. In the meantime, I will be working on a quilt for an auction at my church in October.

    GramE, love your labyrinth. I've always wanted to do one.

    Terri, it looks like you had a good time at the retreat. Glad that you felt well enough to attend. I'm sure it felt good to get out.

    Kass, looking forward to seeing your Zuni fabric. I guess we will have to wait until Boom 24.

    Janice, I’m so glad your feeling a bit better. Grief for me, came in waves. Even to this day, some 20 odd years later, I get hit with it from time to time. You’ll never be “over it” but you do learn to live with it. It’s bitter sweet because it’s the memories that bring on the sadness sometimes, and the memories are precious.

    Kass, sorry we are going to miss out on Zuni this time....it gives us something to look forward to though!

    Terri, So glad you are feeling better, you look really happy.

    Nz, I bet you are ready! Those last few weeks can be so hard, hang in there! (As if you have a choice.

    GramE, great labyrinth!
