    I also just saw this and missed the deadline to sign up. I'm hoping there will be another swap just like this so I can join in next time. I was in the previous one and enjoyed getting the Blocks from everyone. I will slowly start making some more so I can join on the next swap (if it is whites and prints again) and will already have a bunch done. My time is very limited for swaps since I work full time and do long arm quilting for customers. And yet, I really enjoy doing swaps because we all have a different "taste" in fabric so we get a good variety of blocks with doing the swaps.

    Hi Everyone, Two more squishies are on their way to me, Jaba & Cheesehead. Sorry about losing you Boop56, Hope you enjoy your company, family is sooo important these days..


    I haven't been as active as I'd like to be here with all of you..I've been and still am very sick ..I now have bronchitis and my head feels like a basketball... I will take care with the swapping so as not to give you any of my germs

    Aborning, I think there will always be a 9patch swap here on the board. I was thinking of maybe a Christsmas/Winter theme...We'll see how many would like that or we could just do this one over again. Let's get thru this one first.

    Hi, How is everyone doing? It's been kind of quiet here. I am about 3/4 of the way thru my illness, I hope. still a lot of coughing and crackling in my chest.
    I'm planning on making some chicken soup to day and while that's simmering I'll be at the machine trying to catch up with the blocks. I was able to do some picking of 5 patches to go with the white ones. I have about 30 of those done.

    Thank goodness I don't have to mail mine out. I would lose those extra days to get them done.


    Well Have a good day and do what you like to do!

    Honchey-hoping every day you feel a little better. So sorry this illness has been lingering on. Glad to hear you are on the road to recovery. It isn't fun to be sick.

    Thanks Jordan, It's really been a struggle with the coughing.. I know I pulled a muscle by a rib from the coughing.It hurt like H-ll! Thanks for thinking of me..

    I didn't check the mailbox yesterday or today,,I'm sure there must be a squishy in it.. I checked the tracking # and it said it was out for delivery. DH will get it in the morning.

    Glad you got my squishi. I feel better about that as I have never done a swap before but this was so much fun.
    Wahoo!!! Good for your winning money. You never know-you might need to buy some fabric that isn't in your stash! LOL

    I have 100 made but not finished. I have to check the measurements, gotta make sure they are all 6 1/2" and the backs are cleaned of stray threads. I hope they are all ready to be sent and I don't have to make more.

    I wish the blocks would multiply the way the little patches multiply.. Whenever I go to straighten out my baggies I seem to find another with 2.5" squares

    I too have had a case of bronchitis which is getting better. I have yet to make a square. Today is the day for sewing.
    I will do priority mail on Tuesday since Monday is Presidents Day,and no mail. It should get to you on Thursday. I have to use inhalers for two more weeks.

    I too have 2.5 squares in lots of places. Enjoy the sewing. I am finally off to a good start.

    Oh Trish, I can sympathize with you!!! I have the inhaler as well as nose spray and allergy capsules... I sewed 15 more blocks today that beings me up to 54 done. I honestly think no one will mind if they're a day or 2 later.. I will still have to swap them out..

    I will have my blocks in the mail by Tuesday also. I came up short and had to make up a dozen. My husband has been terrible sick. I don't drive anymore, guess I will start up again. We even had our groceries delivered!
    Honchey and Trish, I hope you get better soon.

    I'm getting better every day.. A steam vaporizer really helps me sleep at night plus all the other stuff I'm taking.. Not coughing as much but still have the grumbling in the chest.. I went shopping this afternoon and did a lot of walking and now after a hot bath I'm ready for dessert then off to bed. I'm really tired. I won't be cooking tomorrow it's Pizza day and sandwiches for lunch. Then I'll be off to my happy place..Guess where that is .


    Have a good evening.
