    I have caught two mistakes just before I went to the PO, so I will fix those. Again, if you are missing a star to two, or a double t, or have one too many stars and want replacements, I have 5 Double t's ( I made another one) and two extra shoo fly's. Just let me know and I will send them. And Evie - thanks for the compliments, Patrice thinks I am just plain nuts....this is the very first one I messed up on.....ughhhhhhhh. Darn ....that OCD let me down this time!

    Ooo, ooo, ooo, my blocks arrived today, and they are all great! It's such a treat to receive all these lovelies. I've ironed them and put them up on my wall and admired their variety. Now I just have to figure out what to do with them.

    Deb, thank you so much for making this happen. I know it was bothersome, but really, we couldn't have done it without you.

    Now, I'm off to prepare for Hurricane Sandy. I hope to sew right through it, but I'll be thinking of all of you folks in her way.

    Hi everyone,
    My blocks arrived today just before Hurricane Sandy hits Philadelphia, and they are beautiful.
    I love each and everyone of them, they are going to make a great quilt.
    Deb, thank you for doing this swap and thanks to all of you for swapping these beauties.
    To all the east coasters, stay warm and dry.
    And happy quilting to all my quilting board buddies!

    Cool Stunning blocks arived

    Thank you all for swapping with me. I love all the blocks. I got one less of the double T and one extra of the Virginia stars so it all evens out. I am a sucker for stars so it was a good deal for me. I was also excited to get a sweet potato block and a block from Fraew with the busy back ground. Love them all the blues, greens, browns, reds and yellows. I have some plans for them. Special thanks to our swap host Deb. I have done several swaps with Deb and she is a wonderful host.

    WOW, that was fast service by the Post Office!!! Must be you two have the correct number of blocks.....again, when you get them if you are unhappy, please, please let me know and I will make it right. Darn those Double T's! On another note, I have the furniture in the basement moved, the rugs rolled up towels are over the cracks and the shop vac is ready. I am going to stay down there and sew and catch the water as it comes up....sew a little, suck up water alot, dry the towels, sew some more, suck up more water......I may even grab a Smirnoff now and then to elevate my 'spirits'.......please pray for those who are in much worse shape than I am. I will be okay if the power stays on.

    Deb, Just got my Civil War blocks in the mail. It was like opening a early Christmas present!! You did a wonderful job on this project and I can't wait for you to start another one. Was thrilled with all the blocks I recieved. Everyone did a wonderful job. Was no mixup on my end. Will say a prayer for all who are in Sandy's path. Miss Fay ---Springfield, Missouri.

    Ugh Deb on the anticipated water coming in. Maybe start off with the smirnoff it might all help. So sorry for all of those in the path of Sandy. Our family is praying for you.

    OMG!!! Deb I got my blocks today and they are B E A U T I F U L !!!! You did a great job swapping them yes you did!!! My favorite part and what I do first is open them. Then I spread them out and even before looking at the blocks I see how far they traveled to get to me )Then I look at how pretty each block is I am just weird that way. Only one block didn't have a name / but no worries it is a lovely block and now to just decide what and how to put them into a quilt ) fun fun fun Thanks again Deb!!
    There's only one true happiness in life ... to love and be loved )

    Wow I opened my mail box and what to my wondering eyes should appear but a thick squishy package with 12 Civil War blocks! All so lovely and ready to be put into a wonderful lap quilt with just some sashing! Thank you to every one you participated I love all my blocks each one had lovely fabric !

    My hat is off to you Deb I really appreciate your time and effort I can not even imagine the eye strain this one may have caused but my packaged arrived and was perfect. Thank YOU!!!

    I got my blocks today -- yummy! Thanks to all that I received blocks from, although some of them did not have a tag so I don't know whose they are. Regardless, they are all beautiful!

    Ladies, you have each made such fabulous blocks! Here is a pic of mine. I had a couple of extra so I put them in with my 12 from the swap.

    Thank you so much deb. I'm really anxious to put this together. I have a design in my head already!

    My blocks arrived today! They are so nice, and they are not only color coordinated (lots of brown), but also will look very nice with the sashing fabric already picked out. It was snowing when I went to the mailbox--well, flurrying actually--and the electricity has gone off once already, but it is nothing compared to New York/New Jersey/Connecticut is experiencing, so my thoughts are with all of you. Stay warm and dry if you can.
    I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.

    I received my package of blocks today. All I can say is WOW. They are all beautiful. I appreciate all the hard work that everyone did, especially Deb. My assortment had the correct amount of each pattern. I debated about joining this swap because I have so many UFOs but at the last minute I weakened and I am so glad that I did.

    I have spent the day watching the news and Weather Channel. I hope everyone is safe tonight. Prayers and thoughts with all of you in the path of Sandy.

    I am glad that the blocks arrived and you all are pleased with the sets you got. Anna and Evie seem to be the ones who got the messed up block sets. I will make them right if you need me to......Evie, I do have double t's to send to you. Anna got one more star and one less double t....but she says she is okay with what she received.
    On a thankful note, the intense rain has been reduced to a steady rain, the basement is contained at this moment - you know, I have just realized that EVERY TIME I HOST A SWAP IT RAINS AND I HAVE WATER IN THE BASEMENT.
    We are dealing with wind now, but that has subsided just a bit. Thank you....all of you who prayed for me. GOD does hear prayers, even if we think HE may not. Please continue to pray and keep in your hearts those who are still in this storm path and will have losses.
    Deb Watkins - I woke up today on the right side of dirt. It is a good day.

    Well, despite our mailbox surprises, the big event of the day turned out to be Sandy, and our prayers go out to those who are still struggling with that storm. For those without power, I'm sending you warm and dry wishes. Deb, we are all glad to hear that your basement is dry.

    Meanwhile, here's a pic of the beautiful blocks I received along with special thanks to Deb, first of all, and Evie, Judy, Ronda, Kris, Veronica, Sheri, Diane, and Quilter Momma. I've learned something new in these swaps: I should identify my blocks. Somehow that little detail slipped past me, but I'm glad that I wasn't the only one to forget. These blocks are all works of art.

    Ronda was another one who got caught up in the mess. I really did a number on her!!!! I will swap out what for what she needs. Please, if you did get messed, and really are not happy, don't just be gracious and say it is okay. It isn't, I made a mistake and want to make it right.

    Deb, you didn't do a number on me...just a teensie oopsie (she's being waaay to critical of herself guys), but we'll get it all worked out...no worries. Your job was super hard...as a fellow swapper, I DO understand And the blocks are sooo beautiful aren't they????? You picked terrific ones with an awesome color palette. You're the best!
