    May Secret Pal Swap (Closes midnight April 30)

    This is a monthly secret pal swap. There is a sign up every month, and you can
    choose whether or not to participate each month. You will get a different partner each month, and the person you send to will may be different than the person you receive from. Failure to send your package after signing up will be cause to be banned from all future swaps. Please do not sign up if you cannot fulfill your obligation. Have fun and be creative!

    After receiving your Secret Palís details, go to work and put together a package with something you think your pal would like. There is a $15.00 limit on this swap that does not include what you have in your stash. (This does not include shipping) Most swappers do not mind like-new stash items. You will need to send me (HAV4Boys) a PM when mailing and receiving. This way I can keep my records straight. Also send a PM to your SP thanking them and leave feedback.

    Please take pictures and post in group as everyone likes to see what you get.

    Packages need to be mailed out by May 17th, this is a Firm deadline. All International mailings must be mailed by May 10th FIRM. If you know that you cannot mail by that date, Please Do Not Sign Up.

    For international mailing it is very important that you mark your parcel as a 'Gift' on the Customs Declaration (there's a box you can check). Also, the value should be $10 only (even if you send diamond necklace). The person receiving the package is liable for Import Duty, Tax and a Handling fee. This can cost the person receiving as much as $40.

    Padded envelopes are much cheaper to send compared to small boxes. These can be ordered free of charge from the USPS website.

    You must have a phone # or email to sign up

    Please fill out the questionnaire below and Private Message me your info by midnight April 30 to join the swap.

    Phone number:

    Sign Ups will close April 30 at 11:59 PM PST and names will be sent out no later than May 2nd.

    If your pal does not receive her/his package within a reasonable time I will need tracking information. If there is an exception on the mailing, you will need to inform me ASAP. No one enjoys not getting a package after they have sent one.

    Have fun and be creative!

    Last nights sewing marathon. I decided to do the 52 blocks in 52 weeks on the Canadian Quilters Association website. I cut them all out before work yesterday (got up way to early) and made all 15 when I got home and am caught up. Here are my favorites... I found this material in my stash and thought they all went together.Name:  57798768_876608406017092_7165816027551367168_n.jpg

    Those blocks are so pretty. The colors go great together so nice. Are you planning on making every block using that colorway? Would make such a pretty quilt.

    I'm truly sorry but I have to back out. Hopefully it will be just for this month. I really enjoy this swap and feel guilty that I can't fulfill my obligation. Please forgive me, this has never happened before.
    I will be lurking in the background if you all don't mind.

    Sunrise, I am making all 52 in those fabrics. I am thinking of starting a second one. I really enjoy the 6.5 inch blocks.

    Tomorrow I should have the names out. I just love this swap.

    Okay, all the names are out. Let me know if there are any issues.

    I ordered a few things for my secret pal. One is coming direct to them since I could only find this item in the UK.

    Hav4boys how cute. You are sending your pal a rainbow of the Serta sleep mattress lambs. I would like the purple one behind the orange guy.

    It is so awesome to hear from you Verna. Hope you get back to the swap soon. Glad they got the DH's cancer. Cancer is such an ugly disease.

    We are looking forward to the day you get back.
