    I think the price for those padded envelopes will rise to $5.95. But I think still worth the service we get.

    With the price of gas going up, no wonder postage has to go up. Now to be sure the postal service remembers to deliver with a smile because we are helping to keep them in business. (LOL) I truly love my postal gal, she is so kind and just loves to oo and ahh at all the good things that ocme to me in the mail.

    Love those last double Ts, so pretty with the black shade of fabric on the Ts. Yep, want one of those and your fabric choice for the shoo fly is real close to mine! There are some great minds here.

    Sheri is always pushing me to the next level, as I push all of my swappers out of their comfort zone! As for another swap, still undecided about it.

    Fraew's came today - I just love this swap. I don't know how I could ever top it. I think it has been my best swap ever.....all because of you wonderful ladies! You are so quick to help each other out, and give praise and compliments as well as encouragement.

    I just mailed my blocks 2 days ago and now I am antsy to get them back. The nerve of some people I tell ya!

    I originally planned to set mine on point in rows of 4 blocks, with a nice stripe border like print in between the 3 rows of 4. But when I turn the blocks on point, the blocks look less attractive to me. Not awful, just less awesome.

    I am thinking about alternating them with criss cross blocks to give the illusion that they are set on point.

    Can't wait! Thanks everyone.

    Deb, you are so fast that you have probably mailed them all out already. If you haven't and have time, I would love to see a pic of all the pretties together. This really has been an awesome swap!

    I was thinking the same thing. Would be nice to see them but not if it is going to create a mess for Deb.

    I am not a tech-y person. Everyone will have to post their own pics....sorry.....I have all the blocks in as of now, so will start swapping them out tonight. It has been quite a weekend for me. Life has a way of getting in the way of life.

    No worries Deb. I can live without the techie. So glad you're a swappy though.

    Hope life gives you a break so you can enjoy life.

    Ok ladies. The blocks are swapped out. I have to tell you, this one really screwed with my eyes between the Double T's and the Star of VA. Here is the results. When I was done, I had two shoo Fly's left over and 4 Double T's. I even made a chart and wrote down who was getting what blocks, with special attention to those requests. I have to say I am sorry - but a very few of you have no double t's and one too many stars. and two of you are missing shoo fly's......
    When you get your blocks - if you are unhappy with the mess, I have saved the double t's and the shoo fly's. I will reswap them out......And to top it all off, some of you may not get back one of your own blocks as they were REQUESTED by others, and I tried to honor that. I supposed that if you made your block, you may have fabric left so you can make another one.....please don't shoot me.....those double t's were trouble right from the start. Perhaps if you really want one of some one elses, you can always swap with them. I did my best....honestly - but my eyes are crossed.

    I don't blame you for having crossed eyes!! Really makes no difference here. I'm planning on making a couple of extra blocks anyway. Now go rest your eyes!!

    Same here. I have extra fabric and a block fairy sending me more blocks. It's ok to send me whatever works.

    I'm sure whatever I receive will be beautiful. I will check the P.O. daily.
    Deb, thank you for all your time and work. Your swaps are always the best.
    Can't wait to hear your next idea.

    My eyes have rested a bit. Now I have a headache......no kidding....anyway, when you get your blocks, those of you who have the mixed up mess....please let me know what I need to fix. I will be more than happy to make it right. I can't believe that I messed up like I did. My swaps are always right on!!! as for the next idea.....uhhhhhhh......not ready to even consider it yet. I am distressed that the postage will be going up again, as I know some of you send them a bit less expensive. I am a stickler to make sure the blocks come back in excellent shape, and the bubble FRE is the best way for me.

    Deb, I know whatever blocks I get will be just fine. However the mix turned out, I thank you for doing this. It can't be an easy job and any one who hosts a swap of any kind must be a very special person. Thanks again!
