    Got my names this morning and sent the packages a couple of hours ago...

    1) is headed SE 1151 miles from the heart of Yorkville to the heart of your city which was selected as your states outstanding rural community in 2000.

    2) Headed south 2007.11 miles from the heart of Yorkville to the center of your city where the major export is WINE GRAPES!!!! Sounds like the place to be!!!!

    I am out of town, so partner, you may have to wait just a bit. I did shop for you today. Found a quilt shop in Bowling Green KY and got some fabric I hope you will like. Of course, I got some for me as well. They had 3 yards of wide backing on sale for $10/yard, so got that - and some lovely reddish fabric and some Kona Bay, my favorite manufacturer. Also found a really off-beat quilting store where I got some other fabrics, but not real sure of the makers. We head home tomorrow, so will try to get pkg in mail by Saturday. Can't believe it stays in state.

    I can't wait to see all the great fqs that go out...I hate that I missed this month, but my beloved grandma passed away recently, and while she was 92, she was a "lil spitfire" (she loved when we said that!), she lived alone, and was really healthy, so it was a surprise to us all...Anyways, glad your doing better Brenda! And, I will live vicariously through all the pics that get posted...

    Oh kiffie, I am so sorry about your grandma. How fortunate for her that she was a "lil spitfire" to the end. My grandmother lived to be 95 and was a spunky girl....miss her still but feel her with me always. It doesn't matter how many years someone lived we still miss them and that speaks so well of your grandma. Sending hugs to you.

    Well, guess what ladies???? I just noticed the 2 notes I had ready for the envelopes when I got the addresses....they are on my desk and the packages are winging their way to you! They are small brown envelopes filled with fat quarters and they do have your name and address on them and my return on them...so sorry about that! Good Grief!!!

    Hi there Brenda!

    I got one name for the swap - am prepared to swap 2 sets. If you want to send me another name that would be terrific!

    Thanks for all your hard work - - -

    Mine flung themselves into the postal truck today. They are begging to get home as fast as their little yellow envelope will take them! go speed racer! go speed racer! go speed racer GO!!! (compliments of the brat of course). I hope they will be met with approval. One set went way across the US one is waltzing only half way there give or take a bit.

    Pony Express is all set to go tomorrow. One package will travel 775 miles to a state capital; the other only 500 miles down country roads. Receivers will know summer has arrived when they receive them. I definitely enjoyed picking out fabrics for this swap!
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    Sorry that I meant to post on a different swap so that comment from yesterday about the item arriving and the zip being 36 is not for this swap. Boy, I am not paying attention to what I am doing.

    My packages were hand delivered to the post office this morning. The first package will be PAssing through Ohio enroute to their final destination. My second package is heading to the state where it is still legal to hang a person for stealing cattle.

    So...anyone who is Northeast or Northwest of Houston in any way, shape or form...keep an eye out in your mailboxes...your package should be arriving any day now!!! Post office said maybe Friday...so fingers crossed. Hmmm...any other clues I can give? Oh!!! Both states start with different letters; however when you go through the list of state names, their state's first letter has multiple other states. So...states with either an A, C, I, M, N, O, S, T, V or W as their first letter...the packages are coming to you!!!
