    I received three in the mail Monday! Wonderful blocks made by Alikat110, Missgigglewings, and Urgodschild2 all arrived safely. Pictures are being updated right now.

    It have been so much fun getting mail from everyone. It seems like all that is ever in the box are bills and flyers. But by being in this swap there has been something to look forward to! Thinking and talking to my youngest daughters (who are always jealous about my mail) and a friend led to an idea for a summer project. My daughters and the daughters of my friend are starting a post card project that will hopefully give them enjoyment all summer long. I am hoping to enlist help from dozens of online friends (or future friends), who would be willing to send a post card or two to the girls; postcards that would represents their state or a future vacation state or site. Are you taking a cruise or vacation this summer can you pick up two postcards and mail them out to them? With your help this summer will be so fun. The excitement of receiving the postcards in the mail will be priceless.

    Let me know if you can help and I will send our addresses on to you.

    Thanks so much

    My girls are Abigail, 4 and Elinore, 7. Any postcards would be appreciated. It will be really fun to collect them and tie in a geography lesson as well...I'm thinking of getting a map poster and they can tag where they got post cards from. I was talking over this idea with a friend who also has daughters ages 2-11 that we are doing the project with. You all should have my address, but I can PM their address to you if you want to help in our projects.

    Count me in Quiltingmommy! PM me your address and theirs. I will get my 8 year old granddaughter to help also! She and the other 2 8 year olds love getting mail from me so I surprise them quite often!

    Has anyone been to Wal Mart lately and noticed them doing away with the 2 yard bolts of fabric they had hanging for sale? The one here in Boonville only has the fat quarter 97 cent fabrics left now...not that I ever bought any of their 2 yard bolts but its a shame they cant add more fabric, better fabric, instead of getting rid of what they had. The Wal Marts in Columbia have great fabric and two aisles of it!
    People may not remember what you looked like or what you said but they will always remember how you made them feel!

    Our walmart has the selection but their material is "scattered" and difficult to price at a glance. I actually spoke to the girl that works the section and last week when I went there it was a little better.

    The thing that really irritates me is they took the "sale" aisle out and shoved the sale material in with the rest and it takes too long to go through everything. I go to walmart for a deal. If I wanted to buy $6.00 material, I'd go to JoaAnns.

    I am showing that I mailed a block out to you on 4/8. It had two 4-patches in your F8 and yellow, and then the other 2 blocks were fussy-cut medallions on brown.

    No problem! I "saved" yours for last because I could NOT come up with an idea for it for the longest time.

    Sent out grown-up to Mosher92. My last block to fly home. If you have NOT rec'd a block from me at this time PLEASE PM me.
    Thanks to everyone for swapping. I have rec'd some of the most beautiful blocks. I know they are going to make a beautiful "Crafty/sewing/quilting" themed quilt!

    I couldn't remember if I had or hadn't sent a thank to Goldendog55 for the beautiful block I rec'd last week. I have been sick with respiratory infection and asthmatic bronchitis for the last 3 weeks. So my mind is just now functioning again.
    Judy, the block is beautiful and I LOVE it!...
    Thanks, Country1
