    Cindy, Cindy, I could even pick it up we're so close! Take care of yourself, Chica. There's a googoo going around!

    And for all us Candy lovers, here's another finish a sweet QB member posted. She said it was easy. Her quilting is darling! http://www.quiltingboard.com/picture...t-t217931.html

    I'm heading down to Granbury today to stay with my daughter until she has her baby. If we aren't in labor or unconscious do to lack of sleep, I can meet you.

    Well enjoy the time with your daughter. I will be able to get them to you before the due date if we can't meet. Enjoy the new grandbaby.

    siekesjj, sounds like you're STILL having a great holiday!! Happy Easter! You still have time for "candy" preperation. Maybe you can get your stepdaughter to help.

    I have learned that I am emotionally attached to my fabric! It is really a struggle for me to seperate with my fabric. I signed up for the 6 1/2 farm square swap and its hard for me to cut it up. Am I the only one?

    LoLoLoL!!! you just perfectly described me. Sometimes I buy fabric specifically for a swap and I just can't use it!!!! Even my candies I have to practically close my eyes and make myself share. (Sometimes) sometimes I'm super excited for all y'all to get it.

    LOL! I had fun playing with the shrink wrap. I'd bought a bunch of it years ago when I used to make soap, but still have lots of it left over. May as well use it!

    @Honchey - yup I will fix it thank you! Looks like I forgot to document Mariposa for 3/30 too. I'll do it And I'll remove one jojo, I'm sure she doesn't want to send double sets!

    @moonrise - I've been toying with learning to make soap.

    @all Candy swappers! - check out this new post in the picture thread. Not sure what size she used, but Candy size sure would work. And ladies, feel free to post your own pictures!!

    Ooooo- - Shrink wrap. I'm thinking I've found a use for all those 1970's Seal-a-Meals stuck in pantries everywhere.

    Yes found you just didn't put RECIEVED by your name. It's corrected!!

    Update. Baby being induced on SUNDAY!! were getting last minute things done Saturday. Hubby is keeping all your Candy shipments safe until I go home. SO EXCITED!!

    I'm actually making the new princess an afghan. I'm not liking the pattern. I may pull it out and start over.....
