    So are we close to another count? Seeing all this fabric makes me want to play with it - and not do what I should be doing!!

    pbadder....I live in So. Cal... I would suggest to go to another PO. The reason being is that The different Post Office around me give me different prices......not only that the clerks in the post office will quote different prices. My closest P.O. gives me the fairest price.....65Cents. As long as it fits in that little slot thing they have it is a go. Doesn't matter if it is material or a letter. But even in my closest P.O., one of the clerks wants to charge me parcel price and she is not a pleasant person. I thought it was me that thought that but happily I heard others complain about her. Anyways....try a different branch and see what they say.
    I too am excited about playing with all the fabric that has been shown so far. I am getting excited.
    Dreaming of New England while being stuck in So. Calif.(the asphalt jungle of the world.) But hey the Happiest Place on Earth is here.

    All of the F8s I have received in the last 3 swaps that had a 45cent (or was it 46?) stamp on it came without any postage due on my part. I swapped out about 55 in the last swap and about 80% came with a regular 1st class forever stamp.

    Hello Everyone,
    I have made lots of friends through this swap so I am wondering if you all could take a moment to look at this thread and let me know if any of you can help. Thanks so much!
    Hugs

    Moonwork & Joan apparently I violated some code of conduct so they deleted the thread....although in the code of conduct they sent me I couldn't see what I violated.

    Anyway I will be working on final counts this evening probably but not sure groups will go out on Sunday as my Husband's Aunt passed away last night. Just a little under two months ago they had diagnosed her with Lou Gehrigg's Disease and said she had probably two years...she didn't even make it two months She was a wonderful woman and I feel saddened by her loss not only for myself and hubby but for her 2 children and 5 beautiful grandchildren (all under the age of 7)

    So bear with me folks I will get the groups done just not sure which day.
    Hugs
    April

    Here are the two fabrics that I am using: large group. What I'm thinking is that I will ask for solids or tone-on-tone prints that match the bright blues, green and yellows in the butterflies; and only whites or off-whites for the green print. Would it be too much to put into the note to make "snowflakes" out of white on the green fabric? A dozen different snowflakes would make a really cool quilt. Just wondering if that would be too much to ask. I am thinking that any star-like pattern would make a "snow flake".

    You'll have to go back and read the rules, but normally you can asked they use certain colors or do not use "red" as an example but you can not say what block or blocks to use. Be aware they do not have to follow your suggestions, you send out fabric at your own risk. Most people try to oblige your requests though. You can write "I hope I get alot of star blocks back from this swap". Last Boom I sent out fabric and asked that they not use red. I still got 1 back that did.

    Also ... I had done something unusual with my request. I asked folks to consider making a block in ANY size divisible by 3. I was thrilled to get some 6" blocks, 9" blocks, and a few 6x9 blocks!! I love samplers that are made up of different block sizes. Of course I got lots of 12" blocks - which I was thrilled with ... all block sizes are needed.

    It's a good bet I'll be making the same request this time.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    The one rule is we can't ask others to make a specific block. We can only state preference of colors to be used.

    April, My prayers are with you. My uncle is currently in a nursing home dying from Lou Gehrigg's Disease also. The VA is taking responsibility for his illness. He served two tours in Vietnam. I try to go south and see him every month or so it is so hard to see him progressingly get worse each time. My mother and father go see him weekly but they only live 45 min away. It is such a horrible illness. He was diagnosed almost 18 months ago and we feel very lucky that he is still with us. I cried for your pain. I am sure she is no longer in pain and her family will see her again in heaven. My uncle has six kids and 7 grandkids. Hugs and loves to your family.

    Thank you all for the love and support It means a lot to me.

    Swap is OFFICIALLY CLOSED Now. I will ask a moderator to adjust the title for me. In the mean time we ended up with one large group and four small groups. This is what I have. If my records are wrong please let me know. In the small groups if you have a number next to your name that is how many small groups you are in. If there is no number next to your name than you are in only one small group of 16 people If you see someone on a list who still owes you blocks please please let me know. I try very hard to keep track of this but since I am human I do make mistakes
