    In the mail in the morning

    I need to take pictures of my animals... but it would take a whole page of the forum... we have 3 dogs, 5 cats, 2 rabbits, a guinea pig, and a turtle. All our animals are rescue. In addition, I feed a feral cat colony of 11 and have most of them where I can pet them now.

    Okay, my FQ are going out in the morning, I just have to cut them.

    FQs #1 are going where it is the following at 1:15 PM (PST)-

    Cloudy
    79F/26C

    Precipitation: 0%
    Humidity: 60%
    Wind: 4 mph

    FQs #2 are going where it is th efollowing at 1:15 PM (PST):

    Clear
    43F/6C
    Precipitation: 0%
    Humidity: 27%
    Wind: 12 mph

    I received a fabulously green package today from aprilislearningtoquilt. It held some beautiful fabrics, a surprise and a card. I can't wait to begin stitching ... pictures to follow in the next day or so.

    Kiffie, that musical instrument fabric is super .... my fingers want to touch it!

    I am new to this swap and I have a quick question, Can the FQS be larger than the size required?

    Thanks a bunch.

    Hi antiguegirl68 .... I make my own FQs so mine are a little larger. Most fabrics these days are less than 44" wide, so I always add an inch or so to the 18" side to make up for that ... most of mine are 19 - 20" x 20". Sometimes I add extra fabric just because I have it and I think the recepient would like it. hope that answers your question ....

    Mine are on a plane or in a little white truck somewhere whizzing their way to their new owners. I once again am an epic failure at sending fancy folded little rabbit shaped FQ but hopefully the selection will be nice enough there will be a few 'good' new additions for their new owners. I can't wait to hear they have arrived!
