    All my F8s were mailed out today. Received them from Bibliostone and Mosher92. Loved the fabric for the disabled vets and will try to do it proud as military means a lot to me!

    I received my first F8 from ljdugas31 today.
    Very interesting fabric. I will have to think about what to do.

    Received 5 more today from mosher92, charlottemarie, dove 911, jaba and abby's mom. I am amazed at the number of fabrics I have not seen before. I can't wait to get started. Saturday is my sewing day.

    Hey Y'all,
    Just curious as to how you keep up with all the fabric you are now receiving? Here's how I did it for boom 6, my first boom. After marking the date I received it on the spreadsheet, I put the fabric, any note and the envelope in a large ziplock bag. Then I go thru my stash to see what matches and add that to the ziplock. Then I put all the filled ziplocks in a basket to keep together. That way everything is together and all I have to do is pull out a baggie when I am ready to sew!

    Today I received squishies from CharlotteMarie, jaba, Mosher92, NCquilter, systraley

    Some of you should start receiving my fat8ths tomorrow. If you click on the "boom7"link below
    you can see a picture of the fabrics I sent out.

    Have fun!

    I mailed all but 5 F8s out on monday. I apologize in advance. Some of the F8s are a little short - hard to find fabric that is 44-45" wide anymore AND they include the selvage add in that the lady at the cutting table doesn't square up the fabric before cutting. I'm getting better cuts from the fabric I order on line and they have no customers standing there watching them! I've been happily impressed with my on line purchases. I think I'm going to do it more and more.

    received F8s from:
    jaba
    ljdugas
    dove911
    Abby's Mom
    abonda
    Cyndi H
    goldendog55
    Scrapquilt
    sustraley
    Mosher92
    CharlotteMarie

    I'm loving all the different fabrics

The machines around me must love to eat the envelopes-I have had to pay postage due on a few envelopes that have "tread" marks on them-the envelopes were taller than the 1/4" permitted by the 45 or 65 stamp. The clerk at my post office told me that the 45 stamp was for paper correspondence, nothing else-and they are pretty strict. I found a larger envelope, business sizes (for the F8ths) or 4 X 6 (for the finished blocks-those seams can get thick!)work well and I've been able to send them off for regular postage. Flatter is better
    So the problem is that the post office employees all interpret the "rules" differently. It really chaps my hide when MY post office employee accepts my envelope for mailing - says it's fine, and some smart aleck on the other end takes it upon himself/herself to disagree and force the receiver to pay postage due. There is absolutely nothing I can do about it on my end. I'm not going to overrule my guy just because someone else on the other end might. The 45 stamp is for any envelope that fits through the template - not just paper. It says so on the template. You could have plastic, leather, fabric, anything you want - in the envelope - as long as it fits through the template. Why have a template if you're just going to make up your own rules? Ack. At any rate, I have yet to pay postage due here on my end, and I hope no one's had to pay it for mine on your end.

    Wendsy, let me know if mine had postage due. I took reg size envelopes as well as legal size to my local post office. They both were 45 cents. Then I took finished blocks in a legal size envelope as well as some in larger manilla envelopes Both were 85 cents. I wasn't told they can charge more somewhere down the line! I guess my experiment was useless. I hope nobody gets charged extra, and if you do please let me know!

    I have noticed that fabric is getting narrower too. I spent $12.99 a yard at my LQS last week. It measures out at 43 inches wide. I don't think the fat eighth being a bit short will matter. So far I am having a bit left over on my blocks.

    If you still need help, you might try searching on Youtube. I use OpenOffice, which is similar to Office, but not exactly the same, and I found an excellent video that gave me step by step instructions. After each step I paused the video and did what it showed me and my labels came out fine. Well, except that I couldn't find my box of labels so I printed on plain paper. Still easier to use a piece of mailing tape on each one instead of writing it out!

Last boom they were out the day after the list came out because of the pre printed labels..So I am just hoping...
    I really hate asking since you are so busy with everything...

    Cyndi..tell your guy it needs to be hand cancelled and see what he says. That's where the extra 20 cents comes in. Our soft squishies get caught in their cancelling machines and stops the whole process, tears up our envelopes and sometimes the fabric in them. better to be safe and pay the extra! I don't even take my envelopes to the window, I buy forty 65cent stamps, put them on the envelopes and drop them in the slot. I've never had a postage due issue or a torn up one. Maybe this helps clear things up a little!

    I fully understand the need at some of your POs to hand cancel. However, " my guy" is my next-door neighbor in our little town and does the canceling himself. He has a little stamp to do it with. Our PO isn't big enough to have a machine. Is there another machine it has to go through along the way?

    Got F8s today from Charlotte Marie, Jaba and ssnar. One envelope had 45 cents on it, one had $1.10... its ALL about the post office. I can mail one in Fayette where I work for 45 but when i mail the exact same weight in Boonville where I live it cost me 65 cents or I get it back for more postage. No wonder the post office is in financial trouble! If I get any with postage due I just pay it and hope mine dont need more. It feels like Christmas when I get the mail lately! LOVE the idea from ssnare..where did you find material for ALL the state flowers?
