    My thoughts are with you. Please focus on yourself and DH first. We aren't going anywhere.

    On a side note, I received my fist fabric today from SaraSewing! Yay!

    Sara, Noted on my "chart" to return your scraps.

    April, the chart is excellent. I had a devil of a time getting a computer that could print it out for me without too much difficulty, but I managed. This technology is a wonderful thing, if everything is the same "age"/"ability", don't you think?

    Granny, take care of yourself and hubby for now. We'll all be here, praying for his return to good health. If it helps, you can hold off making my block for a while when you get my fabric. I can be patient. Really, I can. [the little dog in my head is running around, screaming, "throw the ball! throw thte ball! THROW THE BALL!!" .... DOWN puppy!]

    Okay, trying to put the mental puppy away ... ) :oops:

    Fabric is in the mail tomorrow, y'all! I'm excited! 8-

    That could work out to be some fun... I don't make it out of Redding a whole lot lol, but who knows?

    Just thought I'd let you know--My fabric was 43 inches, then taking off salvages and washing and ironing and no matter how I figured I only got 6 11 X 18 pieces. out of a yard. Did others have this same problem? Sleepless night so time to sit here for a few minutes.

    I had the same problem, some pieces I sent are 10 x 18. I figure it is still enough to make a 12.5 in block. We work with what we have.

    i had a heck of a time, 1 of my fabrics was only 40" before cutting off salvages....i had to locate extra to make f8's but i figured it's ok, gave me extra 'scraps' to set aside to use when my blocks come back to pull it all together :)

    Hi everyone! I had made you all a cute little tag in which I was going to use with raffia to wrap around the bundle of fabric I am sending you.. My husband pointed out that some individuals may be allergic, so I didn't use the raffia. I thought I better explain why there is a tag floating in the envelope. I made them, so darn it, I was going to send them anyhow! lol!

    We are in a deep freeze here in Mississippi with SNOW on the ground, and I'm sitting in front of the glass door watching for the postman...I'm not impatient, really, I'm not! or excited either!
    My inner puppy is pretty jumpy, too!

    Granny216 -- please don't worry about us, but know that we are all thinking of you. Close your eyes and imagine all of us in a group hug with you in the middle. Take care of yourself, as well as DH, and stay warm.

    Granny216 my heart goes out to you. We are taking care of my father-in-law as much as we can. Thank goodness my mother-in-law is still able to take care of him too.

    Oh the material problem. Yeppers! I found out how much I went through. I tried every which way to be frugil with the layout and measuring - there was only one piece that was a little different cut but it's going to work! But I keep thinking it's going to be ok!

    Got over that one - then when I went to the PO and found out how much postage was going to be- oh my . . . gulp and gulp again! Ok now I'm over that one! Now will have to wait and see how much fabric I might need to make the blocks look nice! Baby steps all the way I'm almost ready to start running as soon as my post lady brings me my first package!

    Mine are going out this morning! I can hear all those motors waiting at the starting line!

    and I messed up with the shipping label. I made my info on a address label for everyone and sealed up about 2/3 of the envelopes. Then I realized that I forgot to put them in so not everyone got a label to reuse. Sorry! :cry:

    This happens alot and we always laugh. I think the system must pick up words used in the titles and use it to extend the advertising! Let's try something with wrinkles and see how many advertisments we get for wrinkle cures! LOL

    Got my first F8 today in the mail. Thank you SaraSewing! I love it! I had a great idea for it, but I don't know HOW IN THE WORLD I am going to make this fabric work with what I wanted to do! hahahaaaaa

    5" of snow last night, with more to come. It was only 12* when I was going to work this a.m. Sounds like a GREAT WEEKEND to be sitting at the sewing machine, doesn't it???
