    Mine went out in the mail on Sat. I only sent the cotton squares. No twists or batiks.

    I am sure happy I got mine out early. Usually, I am good at procrastinating.. I started my taxes on Sunday, and got them out on time.. As for cleaning.. my procrastination has caused major anxiety..

    Can't wait to get these. I am hoping there will be plenty of yellows for a quilt I am working on. Keeping fingers crossed.

    Husband hasn't mailed mine so hopefully he will today. I said I wasn't going to ask home to do it again after the last swap package rode in his truck for a few days, but I hate taking the kids to the post office.

    Whoever gets one of my ten sets if there is something that you like, we can maybe work out a fabric trade or something.

    So so sweet! I'm going home tonight because my hubby needs me to attend a meeting with him. I'll see all the great packages he and my son have piled up for me. AND in my delirium I realized I never cut my neutrals. I do believe I'll still get things swapped and mailed by May Day!!

    SheriR I just got mine mailed out today, they rode around in my husband's truck for a bit. Have a safe trip home and enjoy the meeting.

    Perfect! I know I won't be swapping until next week. My other princess is passing through to visit. The Air Force is moving them from Florida to Minot, ND. She'll be here five days and they'll be sleeping in my swap room. But it's ok. I'll have time to go through all y'all's packages AND cut my neutrals.....

    Really my life is usually so boring. All this excitement all at once!!!! LOVE it!

    So if you haven't mailed yet... I don't know. pm me and get it done! You have a few more days.

    P.S. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

    Saw this and thought it might work well with candy squares.

    Ok ladies, I am home and just went through all the packages. Here is a list of swappers. Please let me know if I've messed up. I'm still in chaos here with DD, DSIL and their 3 kiddos passing through town as they move north. I'm waiting to hear from three listed but my plan, unless I hear from my missing swappers, is to swap Friday/Saturday, and mail Monday. Cutting it close, but you still should all get candy for May Day!!

    Of course we are having fun.. For some reason, I think I remember SheriR mentioning that there will be another swap.. I just wish I could help.. It's a little hard when I live on the opposite coast..

    Ok ok, ladies. I haven't been ignoring all y'all. And yes I've got the next swap in mind. I just hesitate to announce it until the present one is finished but think July and think patriotic twists and of course, batik twist!!

    I'm waiting for two packages before I can swap. They should be here any day and I'll then swap and mail out!

    (I got my baby fix today! My daughter who is moving to ND left yesterday. so I had to cheer myself up by going and holding the new princess! She's still cute!)
