    I know, I got a few last swap that looked pretty much like that! :( What we have to remember is that our envies are going thro machines that only allow so much vertical space - so if they aren't 'squished' down real good, they're likely totear. (another good reason to wrap them in plastic first!)

    Good idea! Unfortunately, mine are either gone or already sealed. In fact, while I did remember to put my name and board name inside each envelope, the note I intended to include is still sitting on the table. Oh well, it basically said I was happy to be in this swap and feel free to be creative with the fabric I've sent you.

    Mine went out in the mail this morning. I was hoping there would be some in my mailbox, but I guess I'll have to wait till Monday now.

    Katie Ann- Wow! I am so glad that my fabric had a name and plastic wrap around it. I'm surprised that it got sent to you, too! Was your address the only thing that was saved on my envelope to you?

    WOW, that is something else. The postal service seems to be getting worse and worse.

    Maybe if the jobs were going to more people & fewer machines...

    I agree if we let more people work maybe it would not be so tough. I think we as a human race better be careful of the technology we create....
    Glad it arrived alive though!

    Wow, I will remember to put something inside from now on. At least I wrapped mine in plastic. I hope you all get them intact.

    Hi Goldendog55,
    The front of the envelope wasn't too bad; address clearly read. Just the sides were squished. But the back, as you can see, was wide open. Yes, good thing it was in plastic. I have started putting my blocks, etc., in the heavier mailing envelopes. It seems to be safer. I am so glad your envelope got to me even in the shape it was in. I've already cut out your block; it's ready to sew. I love that fabric.

    Just a gentle reminder please do not post pictures of completed blocks before the recipient gets them in the mail-we all love the surprise of our blocks when they come home :-)
    Hugs (and yes we love to see them here too but let's keep the surprise :-))

    My mail box was just squishin' today! I recieved F8's from Sewwhat85 and Moonrise. I'm still trying to return blocks with my F8s if possible-so I guess I should apply my nose to the grindstone). I'll be mailing out late next week, depending on the weather.

    I did finish cutting my pansy material and it went father than I thought it might, I have enough for almost all (luckily the fabric wider than newer pieces of late and the problem area of one was close to the cutting point that I didn't loose as much as I feared), and will be getting plentyof blocks back to make the size quilt I want so for the last 3 or 4 I'll be subbing Christmas fabric.

    Yeeeaaa :-) I recieved two squishies today from moonrise and Sewwhat85. Very beautiful fabrics...I can't wait to open them completely and get started :-) I have mine purchased and washed/ironed. I had hoped to get them mailed today, but I too get to enjoy being sick with so many others :-(
