    Ugh.. So just to vent for a moment... I hate finances!! I had planned to mail everything today as I am supposed to get a check from state disability (still off after baby) on friday. Called to check about the check and was told I won't be getting one until the end of the month due to "processing" of the switch to what is called paid family leave. Ugh!! I have to wait to mail until I get a different check next week. I am sooo sorry ladies. I love being off work with the baby but I hate not being able to budget like I do while I am working.

    Ok, finished venting (thanks in advance). The blocks that have been posted so far look great! I have three done and a few others cut. This is a blast!

    don't worry about it cjt--i think we all have plenty to do until you can send yours. just send them when you can--remember we do have a few months to finish these up, but i know how you must feel and i'm sorry to hear about no check--that sucks!!

    Not at all, BarbS...I just want to get it on its way to you since I know it will take a while for you to receive ;)
    I love the soft fabric you sent...Can you give me any hints about the quilt you are going to make with the fabric? Or is it totally scrappy? (If you sent dif ones and want me to send you a pic, I can!
    =)

    Hope no one took this to mean that I am in hurry to get my "finished" blocks back......no rush at all in that regard ladies.....I'm just getting antsy waiting for the fabric squishees to arrive so I can play!!!! Just wanted to make sure that no one was feeling pressured....cause I'm certainly not in any hurry in that regard.

    Scrappy works great for me.....I sent out two different fabrics that hopefully can be combined with a wide variety of different fabrics.....I will probably make two quilts using the common backgrounds and maybe sashing to tie it all together. Whatever anyone comes up will be great.....I don't have any real set plan in mind.....just excited to see what others come up with !!! Just have fun with it ......it's all good!!!

    I have not posted as to whom I have received squishies from. Should I be doing that?

    It is a good idea to just in case someone who has mailed it sees you may not have received it-just easier to make sure things are getting to where they should be :-)

    cjt-no worries we have plenty of time and plenty of blocks to make-just enjoy that precious bundle and I hope things even out for you-it stinks when you can not budget right.

    I am loving this swap!!
    Hugs
    April

    Oh yeah I mailed completed blocks to Donna, Barnara Day and Barbara Johnson yesterday (I know I said I was going to mail them on Monday but with the auditors here at work it is a bit crazy!)

    DH still asleep so stealing a few minutes before I get him up. Received fabric from: anitariddle, BarbS, Barbsbus, buddy's mom,ckcowl, colletakay, daylilly4u, gigix12, kysmommy2, lovingIzabella, mgrhs, Norbanaquilts, oatw13, OdessaQuilts, purplemem, SaraSewing,and Wine Woman. That makes 17. Haven't received anything in the past couple of days but that too will happen. Everyone should be receiving mine in a few days as they went out Tuesday. Several blocks cut out and will start sewing them next week..Love this swap and hope to do again.

    Just barely one-third of the way through, and already we're clamoring for more. Yeah, April, this is a GREAT swap. We're able to try blocks and techniques without committing to a whole quilt project, and we have an opportunity to reaquaint ourselves with our stash. It's like a trip down memory lane -- I'm finding things I totally forgot I had. And I'm having a great time remembering all the babies and kids and graduations and weddings and etc. that all the scraps belong to. Thanx again.

    As we pick up the mail my husband is in awe of all the puffy envelopes. "What are you doing? Having a quilt festival with your quilting buddies?" I've received over half. But with all else that's on my plate right now, you'll have to be patient; wait for a weekend.

    Don't worry ....I am the same way....I see all these blocks going home and stressing because other then picking out fabric to go with a few I have not had time to do anything. Weekends are my sewing time so everyone will have to be patient with me too.

    Do not let the fact that blocks are going home stress anyone out. Everyone here has different schedules and different lifestyles so we can only do that at our own speed. No one here is rushing anyone so please do not stress-this should be fun and stress free :-)

    All the blocks I've done have been first time blocks. Some went great, others will I'm just happy they are done.

    So far I've gotten all the additional fabric from my stash. Hopefully someone will give me an excuse to go shopping lol.

    Blocks going out today...Mary Jane, Misty, Barbara Day & Kimberly. I have the day off so I'm hoping to get a couple more done.
