    Ok I will see if the moderator will change dates then. It will also give me more time now as well. So happy sewing everyone and put those thinking caps on and start showing pictures when you get your blocks finished.

    I'm in on a new change date. I'll commit to two sets to start with. (I just had so much going on that I needed to finish first.) I really want in on this swap. Thanks for compromising on the "Must be to me by " date.

    Sorry I have not gotten back with you til now. I lost my job the first part of November and was swamped with looking for a new job, Thanksgiving and other commitments.

    I would like to sign up for 2 sets. The extra two weeks was a deciding factor

    Awesome and welcome. Glad the two weeks helped. Sorry to hear you lost your job though. I do hope you found another one and things are settling down there. I put you down for the 2 sets.

    Awesome cant wait to see what you come up with. I happy you found a job too !

    I know what you mean I have been extremely busy myself. I also have a few block ideas just haven't had time to work on them. I made 7 tie blankets and have a few more to go. Then going to sew a few. I just made two scarf's tonight with the red heart swerve yarn. It's really cool.

    If you will do the postage on-line, you'll save between 30 - 50 cents plus delivery confirmation is free. I rarely buy postage at the Post Office any more -- doing it on-line is both easier and cheaper. If you do go to the Post Office, consider sending them by First Class Parcel -- you'll save about $1.50.

    OK. I got all my manuals out for my embroidery machine. Set up the computer, the disc thingy and the module that goes with it. But I spent all day trying to figure it out. Tried to get the tutorial to work and that wasn't going. Tried to look at the installation...that loaded but then I got some other kind of error. I am sure that it is not this hard to do. Now I can't find that hoop that goes with it. I can see it in my mind's eye but can't place where I saw it. So I have quit for the day. Tomorrow I will start again and see what happens.

    The main bernina site has tons of instructional information about the embroidery module. They even have a huge manual you can print out. There is even upgrade donwnloads to fix problems with compatability between the computer and the machine. If you are in the mood, you could read up a little if you have the time. If not, I suggest a phone call to your dealer.

    Yeah I have my machine figured all out but I can't find the hoop that I need to use. I can see the box in my mind's eye but can't remember where the heck it is. My daughter's boxes are all over downstairs and some are mine. When she moves out I well get my space back and probably will find my hoop. To go buy another one.......is like $59. So I won't be doing that at all. It is probably in the boxes in the garage but then again the garage is filled with boxes that are my daugher's. So eventually down the road, I will be able to find all these things. So I will stick with hand embroidery. Haven't started yet as I am so busy with other projects going on right now. But hope to start after Christmas. I have a pig design, a cow design, and a few other surprises.

    Cool My first 6 blocks for the swap

    Here they are! Bare with me as all the cameras are out of commision. DH took the picture for me with his phone. I hope you like the blocks. I plan to make some more pieced blocks and some applique blocks. Last tiem I did a farm swap I made all applique blocks and got some pieced blocks back. I really liked those so this is what inspired me. These are 12 1/2 in. blocks.

    Anna - really nice -- I love the vegetable signs in the center. Please bear with me as I'm new to swaps on this forum, but aren't we supposed to make all the blocks in one set alike? If not, that really opens up what I can do as a piece of fabric I have can be fussy cut into many different animals and scenes.
