    I have sent everyone a PM this morning asking that y'all respond with your username and your full name so I can match you up.

    In sending out these PM's I found the username Missus Fear and wandalou is not found as a member of this board. I attempted serveral times to send the PM to them and each returned as not members of the board. Is it possible they changed there username or its spelled wrong or have they really left us? I have no idea what there real name is and can't match them up with blocks I made.

    I'm still trying to figure out who the 3 persons are that I have not yet received a block from to match up with username and name.

    I'm hoping all members of the Sapphire Group will respond to my PM with there username and real name so I can match up the blocks that were sent to me by them.

    ON ANOTHER NOTE I have 12 of my blocks complete and other three are cut up and just need to sew them up. I have all my envelopes ready to go for all 15 of them and will all be mailed out by end of next week and actually if I have my way by Wednesday of next week coming up.

    I definitely am a virgin sewer and quilter so your blocks are really simple ones and I hope it will be to your liking enough from a newbie. I have done my very best to get you a 12 1/2 block. There is no block name for this, traditional anyway, cause I don't tend to use block patterns. I create what I see in my mind with fabric in hand and I also did not want to mess it up and purposely made it a simple one.

    I will sometime next week take pictures of all the wonderful blocks y'all have made and upload them here on the board. Y'all are so talented and have a good eye for matching colors. I can only hope to be half as good as y'all some day.

    This is definitely an out of the box experience for me since I don't normally do swaps. I found it fun to do and try and find fabrics to match what y'all sent.

    Happy Holidays Folks!

    I'm feeling soooo neglected - I've only received one block since September! The start of another Boom seems like a long way off.

    Just checking my list - missing blocks from:

    clsurz
    girlscouts (haven't received the Diamond Boom block either)
    ok Darla (haven't received the Diamond Boom block either)
    Sharon B

    If my records are incorrect please let me know!

    Happy Holidays to all

    Well darn! I didn't want to complain, but I, too, am missing FOUR blocks.....so far, I do not have blocks from OK Darla, Pink Lady, clsure (I think) or Sharon B. I'm still hopeful about the first two, but not too sure I will ever hear from the third....Has anyone heard from her? And, I hate to say this, but I'm not sure I have one from clsure? I have two that I mistakenly have not labeled. But I'm not stressing. I haven'e received anymore since mid-October. If I get more, I'll be happy....If not, I'll make some filler blocks......still, this is disappointing.

    Of course, I will accept any corrections.....

    I have not received from clsurz, okdarla, girlscouts1, SharonB, ..pinklady is on the way
    I have swapped with three of these people before and they were very reliable, so lets keep our fingers crossed!

    I believe folks have until the first of January 2013 to get them out to each other. So it seems like they have another 19 days to get them where they need to go.

    With that being said no one should be complaining until January 2, 2013 if they have not received there blocks.

    I can't speak for others here but personally I take offense in the idea that some of you feel slighted because you have not received your blocks back yet. Each participant has until January 1, 2013 to get it out to each other.

    Personally I have been posting here on my status and that my blocks are all ready to go in the mail. The last update I gave which I believe was last week stating I had three to finish and than I would mail them all out together.

    I also resent the implication that some of you feel I will not follow through just because you have not had the opportunity to deal with me before. Not to make you look or feel stupid, but I assure you I always follow through with my swaps on this board and I have also included extra fabric back with your blocks in your envelopes.

    Like I stated before my blocks are or were near complete and now are and they are going in the mail tomorrow afternoon or the latest Saturday morning.

    It is very rude to state in a public forum that you believe some of us are not going to follow through when you have no reason to think so since the swap has not ended yet.

    I have done other swaps here on this board in the past and no one can say I don't or won't follow through.

    Think before you post. How would you feel if someone made such statements about you before the deadline arrived for these swaps accusing them of not following through or that you think they won't. You have nothing to base it on or have ever had a bad experience with someone like me before.

    If I were not going to complete something I commit to I would not join swaps like this.

    This is my fifth swap on this board in the last year and with statements like this I do not believe I will be joining any more of them based on the comments of some of you here........ pointing an accusing finger without justification.

    It was fun for me to have joined this swap and really going outside the box so to speak but now all the joy and fun in it is gone from it.

    Of the 15 blocks I have received 12 so far, and still missing 3, however you do not see me posting here complaining that I have not yet received those 3 other blocks. Why? Because I can't, the date for the swap has not passed yet and truthfully even if I did not get those last three blocks on time I would PM the persons on January 2, 2013 and wish them a happy new year and see how they were doing. ANYWAY two of the three missing for me have already told me they will be late and that is ok. Life happens sometimes and it can't be helped.

    I hope y'all enjoy the blocks I have made for all of you. I am a new sewer/quilter however I have done my very best with what I have made.

    Sorry, clsurz, did not mean to offend. I have participated in swaps where I did not get a third of my blocks back. Life happens, tragedies, family emergencies. You are right that the deadline is not here yet and you have been great about communicating.

    Not yet Kendra. Coming from Canada takes a bit of time and I should think especially this time of year.

    I am sorry you were feeling bad about the swap. You have been just fine and corresponded with the board all along. Please do not feel bad, not everyone reads every post to be sure they didn't miss anything and I think that was all there was to it. Everyday I read back posts until I am sure where I left off the previous day. You've been a great swapper, so hang in there with us. Quilty hugs to you.
    Life is Good!
