So the lady feels the envelop and says well it has fabric so it has to go as a package for over $6. I said no I don't think so, I have mailed these all along and it has never cost me that much. So the gal was real nice and asked the clerk next to her and she said no it goes with just the surcharge so it was only the regular price $1.10. So I asked her why is it different for every post office and even clerks????? She said it has to do with the machines. If the flimsy envelope with material in it does not go through the machine just right.....it cost more money. So they try to catch it before it screws up the machine I guess. Now the other day I got a grown up block from someone who put in a blank piece of thin cardboard with the square. No problem I asked my son about it and he gets mail with thin cards sent to him and they are always surrounded by thin pieces of cardboard so that they will go through the machines. So I am going to try this. I buy from teh comic store.........100 thin cardboard things that I use to wrap my material on to organize it on my book shelf. So I am going to try those and see if that works. Oh these things cost me $8.00/ 100. I was thinking that if it was sent out to others that you could collect them and reuse them on another one that you send out. Maybe that is the solution. ????
    Now that is just abut what i was going through only with domestic mail, and oh check this out, i mailed for something else and this board and it took 8 days from ks to get to the UK, it took 3 days to get to china, and it took 17 days to get to North caraloina, now that is jsut wrong i think the pony ezpress would go faster in teh us if u ask me,

    and roseirish I cant find the pic I took of your pretty block did you perhaps post as I asked to show everyone the fascionista? that you made for me? cool pumpkin shades, hat, perky red lips .. I did get it and hope you know that it was appreciated.

    thank you everyone!

    here ar ethe last two fabrics in I received: jayne D in Tx and babyfireby? firby? got your fabrics.

    I think there are only a couple left outstanding. I need to rapidly post in the other sent received catagories before all is lost!!! for a day or two. I swear its a massive withdrawal not being able to post or send things or check mail.. it took a mile and five hours it seemed when I could get one. I will pray all is normal for a bit again.

    HUGS!!!!

    It's called Slanted Diamonds. The pattern is available on Quilter's Cache. Here's a link: http://www.quilterscache.com/S/Slant...ondsBlock.html

    I just finished up your F8 ... and it turned out to be a funny coincidence! (You'll see when you get it in the mail ... or if you want to peek, there's a photo in my sig line.)

    ....

    Awaiting F8s from girlscouts1, Mosher92, and Tracibug.

    yes yes it could babyfire thanks, I was in such a hurry to post I couldnt quiet make out the handwriting but its here!

    I am going to spend the day making a few blocks. I am so not fast like some of you six, eight blocks in a day OMG I am two or three four if I am having a crazy good day. Lightening bolts all of you! but if a couple walk out of here every couple days well they all go home. I like that. I am listening to heavy rain soon to be snow. its been one heavy delay this "big snow storm" was to hit us at 10 pm last night. well here it is 5 a.m. just hitting hard but its right at 36 degrees and if it doesnt drop neither does that snow. so rain is good. I like rain. we need rain. bad. fire if I havent mentioned is a big big fear for me, we live in the forest. like kindling all around me so wish me a deludge of rain. I can take it

    Does anyone have a pic of all the blocks they have so far? I plan on taking a group shot. Its truly amazing having only done boom 8 before that this one with my theme fabric has probably the most cohesive blocks. Its like everyone got together and said ok I will do this you do that... it all works. ALL of them gives me room for thought for the NEXT boom. laugh I am already planning an encore.
