    So I'm tracking the location of my 2nd SP's package to make sure it arrives safely and I'm wondering...Why does it have to go way over the state where my SP lives only to have to backtrack...I knew it had to travel some miles, but sheesh!! It is scheduled to arrive today!!

    Loving the packages coming in...such beautiful stuff!!

    Michelle, it could be where the HUB (main place where all the mail goes to before coming to you) is for her area. It's like....I am in VA and if I were flying to FLA I would have to go up to PA and then down to FLA. That has never made sense to me but that's where that airlines HUB is. Does that make sense now?? A main office if you will.

    Question Scrap quilt makers

    Do you have this magazine? It is the "Easy Quilts Fall 2011"
    issue.

    I am HOPING (hint hint hint Lori) that for the February sp swap
    that I will get someone (on list "scrap list") as my partner so that
    I can send them this magazine along with a bunch of scraps.

    But I am also working on "building" scrap boxes to send off to some
    people.

    Yes I KNOW that we are still working on the January swap, but
    I am already planning ahead and getting my box (maybe more than 1)
    ready.

    Happy Wednesday everyone.

    The SP this month are particularly spectacular aren't they?

    I have a special request from my SP friends....Would any of you happen to have a past issue of this magazine June 2011? I'm nearly 900 Yo Yo's into making a coverlet for guest bedroom....when I saw this cover picture and like the idea of having a backing rather than just sewing the Yo's together. Yep I love making the Yo Yo's while watching TV at night. I've also place a request on ISO thread but I thought I'd give this thread a try since I've come to know so many SP here!

    LOL yep I have ALL sizes from strips barely 1/2" (too small I image)
    to just under fq size.

    I will be filling boxes by grabbing hand fulls and dropping in box. I was
    counting over the weekend how many bins I have and it looks to be
    7 (or nearly that much) 58 quart size bins.

    Onalee - don't have that magazine, but like the quilt!


    MScupid - I save scraps from 1 1/2" up. Sometimes smaller for applique. Scrap quilts are my favorite! Also save selvages, especially with words.


    Louise - looks like a great magazine!


    No package yet, but I have seen some nice ones coming through.

    i am working on two, count them, two postage stamp quilts simutaneously. crazy i know but i saw a pic of bonnie hunter's perkiomen daydreams quilt so i had to start on that one too along with my regular psq. so for me i would want them to be no smaller than 1.5" inches preferably 2 inches and up.

    i have noticed that sometimes lori comes on in the evening especially when she has to take marty to the doctor plus i think i remember her mentioning recently that she had a doctor's appt about her eyes this week.

    nice packages all. barefoot quilter that butterfly fabric is really pretty. i have been collecting butterfly fabric for a while for a quilt request. i havent seen any like that, just purdy.

    my two sp packages are not even showing that they have been received by the post office. hmmmm.... i dropped them off on the counter along with the other 100 packages they had sitting up there. to my two secret pals, i can only say they should be enroute soon enough, one minus the chocolates but i'm gonna see what i can do about that. if i was a big chocolate candy eater, i would be eating them while i was typing this apology telling you how good they tasted (in my head of course)but alas, i will try to get something to you.

    That would be a big ME, but, not smaller than 1 inch.
