    I received my first F8's today from dove911, jaba and ljdugas31. I'm hoping to get most of my F8s out by monday. I'm pulling fabric from my stash and keep changing my mind. I have some in the washer now. I'm going to send the rest of the fabric from Boom 6 that I used with the ladies who did a side swap w/ me since I wasn't in that one 'officially' I hope no one minds working on xmas/winter still. I should have enough blocks to make a good size lap quilt. I'm going to send out 4 totally different fabrics for 4 seperate projects. Maybe next Boom, I'll get more organized ahead of time and just do 1 project. I like the idea of using up my stash. Good excuse to buy more fabric

    I love working on fabric I wouldn't normally pick for myself. It stretches my boundaries.

    It's good to be an 'official' Boomer this time and I love the ocean. It is so peaceful to me. I'm in the perfect group!

    I'm looking forward to making blocks for all of you

    So glad to see you all having fun.
    Christina so very sorry to read of all your woes. I hope things look up real soon!
    As far as mailing blocks home you can send them whenever you want as long as they are all mailed home by the deadline.
    Hugs

    I received f8 from goldendog55 today. I completed her block. It is different, she wants blocks for children charity quilts. I think it is cute. I hope she likes it. I will mail out my f8s Mon. Her block will go home to her Mon.

    I received my lst fabric yesterday from Dove. Its beautiful!! In the last Boom we didnt know whether to post pictures of blocks we make or wait until we receive them home and then post them. Any suggestions from you ladies in the water group? I love showing off what others have made for me!
    People may not remember what you looked like or what you said but they will always remember how you made them feel!

    This is the link to my albums for all Boom swaps.

    Usually we let the receiver of the block post pictures so as they can be surprised when their block gets home. But if the receiver asks that the maker post a picture they can
    Have a wonderful day all.

    If anyone needs the newer version of excel format just let me know and I will save and send it to you. I always save as a 97-2003 version because a lot of people I know do not have the newer version of excel.

    It is the craziest thing. I open the file and save it to my documents but when I go to mail merge it is not there! It did the same thing w/ the new version April sent me. It must be something I'm doing wrong so I just gave up and copied and pasted every line on my Avery label template, took a little time but better than writing it all out, so now I have labels! Yay

    April, thanks for resending. I hope you are feeling better!!!

    Thanks for posting it Ruth!

    Merge instructions

    old cat lady so glad you are in this time! Can you tell me what page the boom 6 version of the mail merge instructions are on. I have asked for the old instructions several times and I dont think anyone is seeing myn plea..so if you can just tell me what page the boom 6 instructions are on or approximately I can find them,,,there are just so many pages. I dontb want to copy and paste to each label..I dont work with excel much and that sounds pretty hard too. I am so sorry to ask this of you,,

    Is anyone besides me a nervous wreck when cutting someone else's fabric? I have finished 4 blocks and will list them when I actually get them in the mail. This is the first time I have done a swap like this, and the thought of cutting something wrong makes me crazy. I have done the 4 and hopefully by the time I do a few more without a 'mishap' I will calm down a bit!! It's such fun to get all the little packages. Thanks for hosting our exchange!

    Relax. You simply create an "original" design. Through four booms, I have created many originals! Several of them have come out quite striking.

    I've received 4 fabric envelopes and have sent out about half of mine.
