    I received beautiful blocks from Missgigglewings and Phannie this week, and they are just so lovely, thank you! All my grownups have been mailed (last 2 went out today) and there are 11 to come home. The decision to be made now is to make 1 big quilt or 2 lap quilts.... I'm leaning towards 1
    May your blessings be many, your troubles few and your fabric stash endless!

    Lemons?

    NO I am not asking if you received any lemon blocks you silly guys! I am wondering if anyone here has about a 10.5 inch piece of lemon fabric they are willing to do a trade for? I need a few little pieces like that and dont need full fq's (end up with scraps which I never use!). so PM me if you do ok?

    I received a pretty pumpkin block with bats and cats! from C. C.... in W. Jordan UT Thank you so much!! I am really pleased with my pumpkin blocks and am so glad I chose that fabric because everyone used it perfectly. TADA!!Name:  boom utah.jpg

    I've had eye surgery and won't be able to get new glasses for about 6 weeks. Anyway, I'm almost blind for close-up work. I'll get the blocks made, but if your block doesn't look right, I'll fix it for you after the 6 weeks are up. Even my paper-piecing won't be up to snuff! I see 2 lines, and can't figure out which is my sewing line!

    Hope all went well with the surgery. I think we will all understand if blocks are a little off. Sounds like most of us has had issues this swap. Thanks for sticking it out for us. Phannie

    That is such a wonderful thing your doing donating your quilt and I can say boy there are several blocks in there that I would love to steal from you!!! the colors are magnificient and it is coming out beautiful. Bravo!!!

    I am thinking only a few more blocks wandering back in this direction? hope hope hope!

    Goldendog55, if you have blocks to finish let them rest your people will understand. I think most of us get life happens. I worry all the time oh please dont makeme go back to the hospital I have THINGS to turn in!!! lol..seriously it is right there on the top of my mind oh no if I am out of commission I am BEHIND! but I have no control.. a lot of us have no control when this stuff comes in and I am positive no one would pick it. We would all want to be healthy, in good working order and never need things fixed. Thats where the old life happens comes in. Be patient with those who need a bit of extra time or compassion. Its a free gift you give yourself and everyone around you

    May all you who are recouperating - take a breather - take this down time to look through your pile of magazines and organize your stash. Yes, in a perfect world we would all be done in another month, but we aren't in a perfect world. We all can wait until you heal and have the ability and time to complete the task. Keep us updated on your health and what you are doing so we can pray and support you.

    Count your blessings, not your problems.

    Wow...my nephew called and told me to meet him 1/2 way between home and St louis, he had something for me.
    I was shocked when he loaded up 8 trashbags of fabric, yarn, thread, knitting needles, etc AND my sisters Bernina sewing machine!! Wow...it feels like Christmas! Hope I can find instructions to operate it! LOL

    Hello All
    Sorry I have been MIA. Since having my two surgeries I ended up having some pretty severe muscle spasms once I returned to work. Well lo and behold it was due to the muscles they had to cut almost back to back. The doctor told me I have to limit my computer/tv/reading/electronic usage as much as possible to reduce the strain and let the muscles calm down and heal
    I have received a lot of beautiful blocks and I will try to get pictures of them all posted soon Thank you all so very much. I will have all blocks done and home on time I promise

    Also I just wanted to post a gentle reminder to be careful of the starches or washes you may use. We do have some members who are highly allergic to fragrance.

    Thank you all again-you are the bestest!
    Hugs
    April

    April, heal now able to do more later.. good trade. take whatever it takes to get those muscles back in working order. I am so sorry your life is putting you to the test over and over again. I am however happy to hear your handling it with stride and grace and taking it one foot foward always. your little Izabella has a wonderful role model knowing she faces struggles of her own also.. seeing you take it on will help her be strong too. xox

    I wonder how many blocks are outstanding.. anyone know if the still have mine to work on? guess i can go count them lol .. I always figure it is what it is. I am so thrilled with what you have all made for me and am already planning a game day win for the next boom. I love the boom's!!

    I received grownups last week from Moonwork (the yellow was just what I needed)
    and missgigglewings (pretty electric blue).

    Thanks, ladies.

    and here's a thanks to those of you who sent and I didn't mention. It wasn't on purpose. I kinda lost my way there for a couple of weeks. I'll take a pic of my blocks tonight and upload tomorrow.

    I have 24 adults at home so I'm waiting for quite a few. No one wants to come to AZ in the heat . . . not even the blocks.

    It's been a while too since I've received any blocks ... I believe there's still 11 left to come home in the next month. Dad tells me everyday there's no blocks .

    This is the worst part of the swap..nothing but junk in my mail box! I get so excited when we lst start and I get tons of envelopes to open and look at...then a little later when the babies start coming home...but the last month is always kind of boring with nothing in the mail!! 7 more to go to have all of mine. Scrapper, Tracibug, dottie Dodge, Cuppy April, Lovingrandma OK Darla, I think most have posted their updated status havent they?

    Ok, I am away from home so I do not have my list in front of me but I know Gaijin is going home and two others. I have the blocks in the photo bucket but names have escaped me. (an Indian print and a butterfly print) Thanks for swapping, I will double check the names Friday.

    I just found out there's something called an iTrader Rating Notification on this site, oh, my :-(

    I could have been adding these the whole time for you all.

    OK, next thing on my list for the next swap is don't forget to add ratings.
