    Just stuffed and addressed all. I had enough plastic for half of you and will hope the rest arrive safely without it. I am doing this at my own risk as I dont want this to get behind me. I apologize straight up. I did include a note and a business card in each one so hopefully nothing gets lost. It was one of those days. Moons ago I bought the envelopes, and the return address stamp (oh gosh) and the baggies. now baggies are gone. I think I used them thinking oh I will replace them OR worse yet they are in a good place. I put things in good places all the time. never find them in good time but they eventually show up when I never need them.

    I admit it. I am a capital L LOSER when it comes to stamping envelopes. I pulled them out. I stamped the first one oh heck the stamp is upside down. Ok fine toss that envelope bummer. Stamp the next one its off center. ok toss that one bummer twice over. Third one. It works! stamp all of them. tada! .. they are all upside down. every single one. Forgot to check that. Yup did I say L. new tattoo I guess I need. Or just tshirts with a big L. let them think its for Linda. We will all know the truth. sigh.
    upside: your fabric is on its way. Please dont show dad my envelope would you? I am already worried about his checking out my stitches and ironing lol.. i am sending him something special. you wait and see if I don't.

This way I can work on this AND all the other open mouth insert foots I signed up for. LOL. love it but at times I think.. was I even thinking when I said that.. OH SURE ONE MORE WHY NOT! lol

    I would take the undies fabric or the wonderful orange without any hesitation.

    Can you see Dad's face if it had undies on it?????? Oh that would be priceless He already thinks we (including him by default) are a little off balance.

    Spent some of last night arranging ladybug squares and ended up making another block so it would work out. Today he will iron the sashing strips "because they are a little wrinkled". Heck, we crawled around on the floor with them for hours ... what does he expect? He did lay all the squares on the floor for our layout (ran out of room on the design wall) and he ended up taking off his flannel shirt with all the bending and stretching because he got too warm. He didn't stop though and kept working . Good thing he's my Dad cuz I'll tell you ladies, a short 82 year old taking off his shirt and working in a t-shirt isn't my cup of tea

    Don't worry Brat about your envelope...he gets the mail and has it all sorted by the time I get home. He has fingered them up good and wonders about them until I get in....then he practically follows me around until I open them. He'll tease and comment about the envelopes and how far they traveled and if he has been any where around the area.

    Moon, you are so lucky to have your dad to do that with! I miss my dad so much and wish he was here to see the quilts you all help me make. I get my quilting interest from his mother who was an avid quilter!! You are SO lucky!!

    When you send an envelope with the stamp upside down means you have sealed it with a kiss. Bet you didn't know that. Well I ran out of paper for my printer so I will have to go and get that so I can print my message to all of you. Then I need to go to the LQS to get some material. Wash that material and then cut and I can mail everything out. Might get it done by Friday instead of Monday. The sooner the better. Yeah. My posts office is half a block away so I am lucky with just walking over there. But what is interesting is that the price is different depending on who waits on you.
    My adult son lives with me and suddenly he has been showing interest in my design wall which hangs in the hall way. I am doing a whack and stack quilt with my quilt class and he has changed those pieces around and has added his 4 cents worth on the design. So I decided to do his suggestions instead of the way the instructor has it pieced together. It is going to be really strange and interesting. No I won't be giving it to him as the stack and whack part is flowers. Not exactly a manly thing. I am hoping that he will help with the boom decisions when I start getting them. That should be fun although piecing 12 inch squares can only go certain ways. Hmmmmm.

    I was lucky with my semester - 2 online classes, 2 independent studies, and 60 hours of observations. I built a lot of "spare" time in to make sure I could do the blocks, client quilts, and then sub when the schools call. And if it gets too overwhelming, well... school only goes until the 2nd week of May.

    Well that didn't last long, naturally I had to look. I love it, colors are perfect, love those soft pastels. Thank you so much. Will let you know when it arrives, now I really am getting excited, 69 to make.....when I get fabric. I bet I'll have some tomorrow. You're web site looks really nice, good job getting it together.

    okay, 3 yds of fabric cut into 8ths should give a person 24 pieces. Another yard should give you another 8. by my count that should be 32 f8's to send. so would need 3 more from another fabric---no problem! Got my envelopes all hand addressed ( I am not computer savvy) and packaged the f8s in plastic sandwich bags with my little note card with a address label attached so it is handy if anything happens. so why are all f8s gone and 9 envelopes are still empty? start counting and find that there is 37 names on the list. so back to the stash to find some more fabric to fill those 9 envelopes plus one side swap. Fabric chosen is only enough for 8 pieces so again to fabric stash to find enough for 2 more people. So now all envelopes ( including side swap) are signed,sealed and ready for post office tomorrow. Four different fabrics will make quite a few quilt tops. Hope everyone will "be creative and Have Fun" like i wrote on my little note.

    I sent all my F8's out today. Please everyone, if you have to pay any extra postage on mine just let me know and I will send it to you along with your finished block. I've never had a problem before but it seems the PO is getting pickier all the time!

    nothing in the mail for me today

    YOOOOOUUUU WHOOOO.. wondering think I asked but heck probably only in my mind.. how does one get a link in their signature line, like boom 9 received boom 9 sent this way you can just click on it for a direct send to that album vs going all around the back way. gracias.

    Jaba I know it makes you happy to get yours back fast. I always put them in the box in the order they come in date written clearly on the front of the envelope. At the speed you send yours will be right up there in the front and well happy days are here again for you! I look forward to the fun fabrics coming in. Always a suprise in there or two. Oh and I will have fun. Be careful what you wish for Roseirish! and I feel you on the count. I was all set filled the envelopes and alas two without stuffing? huh? so I cut them today out of a different halloween fabric. I am just hoping not to get many applique this time unless they are edge finished to withstand lots of washes. The fraying otherwise can be a bit.. overwhelming for me. I am the kind to take a little snip scissor and spend an hour trim trim trim. drives me nuts! I just washed my favorite throw blanket. I take it to dialysis. I also lap sew when sitting and well little snippets of thread were driving me nuts so wash they should come off. nope the dug themselves in. gets better the man had kleenex in his pocket and the whole thing was covered in kleenex snippets. So today.. I sat and picked at it told the nurse it was like being a monkey I was picking and picking argh. so please save me from tons of pickin'!

    I still don’t believe this happened.

    I moved in December and have been using the address listed on my lease agreement, never thinking to actually check out the street sign.

    Yesterday, after not receiving any mail since I moved, I finally checked the street sign and found that I do NOT live on 54105 West J. T. Western Trail, but, infact, live on 54105 J. T. Western Trail, Maricopa, AZ 85139. Now with Maricopa being a dot on the map, you would think the post office would know there is no West.

    I submitted a change of address form with the post office, so anything that has been sent and not received by the Maricopa post office should be delivered. (They now charge $19.95 for an online change of address). If anyone gets their material back, please resend to the "good" address and PM me. I'll reimburse you for postage.

    Sorry,
    KAT

    Well, I called the Maricopa post office. Got lucky and talked to someone who could speak fairly good english. Found out that there was a DO NOT deliver order on my address (probably from the landlord before he rented to me). So, I got that taken off and it appears that I wasted the $19.95 online fee because they are leaving me another form to fill out today. Long story short, if there is anything waiting for me, they will deliver today.
