    I am so glad it made it to your house. I trust the postal workers as they put the tape around the package. Will have to tape at home or ask them to secure it better. I did order the bubble lined envelopes so hope I won't have that problem any more. To bad they don't have those envelopes at the post office because I would have chosen it first. They do look a little sturdier.

    I thought I was pacing myself so I could cuddle with my scraps, and I see you guys are working like demons to get all the pieces cut.. Am I doing something wrong? It's just a little scary to look at my place, and it looks like a grenade went off in a fabric store.. Actually, probably worse..

    Well, since this swap is almost closed, it must be time to think ahead to the next one. Maybe a novelty print twist? I-spy, holidays, etc.?

    OOOO you're sure keeping me on my toes! I wonder how many would be interested in fussy cutting for a novelty/ispy swap..... Of course I'd keep the batik twist but there are all kinds of ideas for the other one. Anyone else have suggestions?

    Depending on the size of the prints, not everything would have to be fussy cut for a novelty swap. There are tiny prints of every holiday and many children's prints. I'm collecting I-spy squares in 6.5 and 2.5. I think there is a cool border idea out there somewhere for those 2.5 in squares.

    Other suggestions ...... we've done neutrals so we could move on to any other color under sun.
    Solids?
    Dots?
    Ginghams?

    By the way, Miss Sheri, I just ordered some more priority flat rate boxes so I can send my swap plus HST bag off to you. If you don't go crazy squaring those up, you are a strong woman!

    OH what a long night, I was just finishing up a project that is really running late! (nothing new really) and I heard my mom's cat just having a blast playing with something! i was just so glad because it is a really shy cat and hardly ever plays... Not a good idea when you ignore a strange activity! My precious neutrals are a mess, all over the place torn up, scattered and guess who gets to start over! UGH... My cats I would have known to keep them up high, but her cat has been so good! Well I learned the hard way, back to the twisting board! I am going to bed, for a long nap! yikes~ 4:45 not good!

    Before I had my design board, I used the guest bed to lay out my quilt blocks. Imagine coming in to find ALL 3 dogs having a wrestling match on top of a quilt I had spent hours laying out! I did manage to laugh. I was never sure if I had it laid out the same the second time or not. Life wouldn't be as wonderful without our fur babies, though.

    I'm on my way to watch princess golf in Georgia, on Jeckle Island. Golf is such a fickle sport. Please help me pray for Princess to be confident. I am Hoping to do some shop hopping too. Yeah me! Maybe I can find all y'all some Georgia Candy.

    if any candy arrives while I'm away hubby will put it in a safe place and I will post the arrivals Monday.
