I think I can have mine ready to go. But I’m okay if everyone wants to postpone. I found this very cute fabric from the “wee wanderer” collection I’m using for the table runner. I thought it be sweet for summer.

I’m glad to hear how you are all doing. My husband and I are in our late 60’s and retired. So we have been able to limit our outings to grocery needs. We live in a small rural town. Our son still lives at home and has been scheduled for work. He works retail, and they have remained open for customers. We try to be careful with washing hands, wiping down commonly touched areas, and keeping our distance from people.

I had mine all finished in early March as I planned to be travelling till Easter but I cancelled the trip and have been holed up in my little rural town of nabawa ever since. No shops here,just a school and shire office where we get our mail. My grandkids have volunteered to do any shopping for me and bring it out and share a cuppa on the verandah. Isolation is the way to go if you can do it but you do need outside help and those people are at risk and I pray for them. My GD Kim, is a RN and works in the high dependancy unit at the hospital. Australia has shut down a lot of things including travel between states. Our state,west Aust is so huge, we are confined to our own region. Just have to contain the spread God be with you all throughout this crisis

I have also let Caroline know that I'm sitting this one out - have to get my sew-jo back; the runner is almost done, but needs to be quilted. I'm retired so I have as much time to sew as I want, but for some reason, more distracted and harder to concentrate on quilting right now. I'm watching way too much news! Stay safe and healthy everyone!

Hi Ladies,

Okay.... I think that I will postpone this round of the swap. I am going to keep the theme and as soon as this darn pandemic is over and we go back to being allowed out I will reinstate the swap and allow 4 weeks for everyone to finish their items and then it will be all systems go! How does that sound to everyone!

I hope you are all staying inside and keeping well.... we have a lovely group of ladies who take part in the swap and I want all of you to be safe.

I am going to miss seeing your lovely creations, but if anybody just wants a chat please feel free to email me at [email protected]......... or if you want to chat... PM me and I will send my phone number!

Take care all of you and we will see each other on the other side!

Hugs

Caroline

I think that's a good plan Caroline! Thanks for not giving up on us! lol
I'm trying to tackle my Frolic Mystery Quilt - it isn't a mystery anymore as all the clues & final pic have been released, but I'm immersed in putting together 25 blocks at the moment, then it's on to corner blocks. Here's a peak at my block!

Sue I love your blocks. Can we post pictures of what we are sewing now? or is it against the rules? I been working on 18 " doll clothes.

Thanks, Caroline. I also think it is best. I sort of dreaded going in to the post office.

Sue, that is a lovely block. It looks difficult to make.

Mary, I’d love to see your doll clothes. My grandma used to make our dolls clothing. It was so fun to get a package in the mail and see what she had made. I never really learned to sew. Quilting is as close as it gets for me. I confess I received a D+ on apron in Home Economics.
Everyone, please be well. This virus has me worried for all of you.

Beverly
