    Oh Linda, That is wonderful news. Hope they call you sooner than later and I will bless the donor, many times over! Even though I am not participating in this swap, it is so much fun seeing what all you are creating. Each day that I work on my DGD's graduation quilt, I solve another problem. When it is far enough along to share pics with all of you, I will.

    Congrats on getting on the list Elisabrat!!!!!


    update on my progress. As long as the mini boss lady takes a nap I should get the binding on today. I dug out my super secret stash of fancy pants thread to quilt it last night. I found the perfect backing on accident, it's amazing what I found in my stash lol. I hope my partner likes it. I'm so nervous I've never made something for another quilter.

    thank you everyone

    don't be nervous we all started somewhere. Some of us are great! some of us are learning! its all over and we all accept that every single one of us is of a different level. Its having a gift from another quilter that KNOWS how hard you worked to make this.. its really appreciated. You will love sending and seeing your partners reaction and you will love receiving and enjoying the hard work someone put into making something for YOU> its great stuff.. addicting. your now in for life trust me one swap is just never enough.

    Very true indeed.

    My partner LJDugas31 and I have decided we would both mail our completed table runners out today (Friday)!
    Which means, LJ, that you should receive yours by Monday. I'm so excited for you to receive it.

    I too am a little nervous as I am seeing things on here - I am not nearly as advanced as most of you are. I am just hoping my partner won't be disappointed - but sometimes the simple and new projects take a lot of time for us beginners.

    I had to make an unexpected trip to Nashville to Vandy Eye Institute where my eye surgeon is - had surgery #13 on my rt eye last Oct - thought I had a problem (cornea #2 rejection!) but it was just a few stitches that had come loose. She removed them, I drove home yesterday, had appts today - so am really tired. Will try to sew some this weekend if I can make it out of bed. Didn't intend to lose this week of work time.

    I'm glad you'll be OK, Rena! Heal well. I'm sure your partner is not in a hurry and doesn't want to pressure you at all!

    Excellent job on the double-sided runner. I can see why Laquita is thrilled with it!

    What beauty I am seeing! Love the roses! and 2 sided BONUS!!! great runner Jaba.

    From what I'm hearing it looks like all of you are somewhere in the midst, or have already sent your runners. This is AWESOME! I took a crash course in "wet noodle beating" from Brat and I don't think I'm even gonna have to use it.

    I was just communicating with my partner LJDugas31 and she received what I made for her today, and she asked if I could post a photo.
    So (on the same table as the photo above), is the runner I made for LJ. She likes flowers!

    She was a great partner and will be moving very close to where I live, so we hope to meet in person this year.

    Nurse Bonnie received the topper Saturday that I made her. She said she liked roosters, and who am I not to comply to those wishes? She asked that I post a picture for her, so here it is.

    Thanks Tlambing for hosting this, lots of fun.

    These are absolutely beautiful. Have to be honest I'm sure I wouldn't have asked for roosters, but you did a fantastic job and it is great. Lj love the runner that you received. Thanks ladies for the compliments on my ribbon border, I love this border and seems to "fit" a lot of different items.
