    Hello All,
    I got home last night from a 1/2 week away at a friends cottage, and I had three squishy's waiting for me!!! Yippee! How exciting! This is my first swap and I am loving it already!!
    I received squishy's from: Travelinggramma, Shadowirish, and from someone who did not put her board name on the outside of the envelope. Someone from North Attleboro, MA. I haven't opened it yet, as I am following advice/suggestions posted on the board from people who have done these swaps before. I am opening and doing them in the order I receive them. So far anyway. I've only opened Travelinggramma, as I received hers first, but it's gonna be hard not to open the others! I keep hearing these little, teeny-tiny voices, 'open me, open me'. Don't worry, I'm not answering them, but I may end up opening them, just for a peek! Lol!
    I was productive while I was gone, and got my Fat 8's cut and pressed and ready for the envelopes. I just have to make my notes, and address and stamp the the envelopes!
    Oh, I am using a variety of fabric from the 'Whimsicals' and 'Button and Blooms' collections from Red Rooster. I just love the fabrics and have had them for a year or longer. I decided the fabric fondling needed to come to an end, so this swap seemed like the perfect 'next step' in our relationship! : )
    Hugs,
    Shelley : )

    Just a little catch up! Recieved fabric from dotcomdicm, ljdugas, qltnrt, Shadowirish, travelinggramma and urgodchild2. Fabrics all look good, need to get my mind working to figure out what to do. I have no peoblem with what colors to use from your suggestions, but the kind of block to make bothers me. I will do as asked, but your not suppose to tell us what block to make, thats up to us. Just had to say how I felt. Sorry

    I like to choose a simple block like d4p and make it several times, in different fabrics for different swappers.
    I learn a lot that way! I am Surrogate Mother of the Bride this Saturday and MOB next Saturday! Then I will work on this Boom. xoxo Dotty

    I received the same F8ths and didn't see any notes requesting a specific block....only color considerations.

    Hi All,
    Last night I downloaded and printed out the chart and address labels, so I stuffed the envelopes and mailed all of my squishies today! The P.O. said they should be in your mailboxes by Friday! Yippee! It took much longer than I thought! Lol, but it's done!
    I have received squishies myself. Now that I've downloaded the chart, I know who everyone is! Here's the list so far:
    Travelnggramma
    Shadowirish
    Ljdugas
    Marich52
    Dotcomdtcm
    Urgodschild2
    qltnrt

    After a week with the grandchildren (including hiking, fishing, horseback riding, jeep riding and the Grand Canyon) I was estatic to receive fabric from: dotcomdtcm, ljduga,Marich52,gltnrt,shadowirish,and urgodschild2.
    I opened all the envelopes, marked my list with date and descritption on fabric and can't wait to play.
    i have been working on a table runner with paper pieced teacups and coffeemugs. They are coming out so great I was wondering if anyone would like one for their block? PM me if you do,
    Quilting as I go traveling down the road

    Count your blessings, not your problems.
