    the lumps will raise your cost! Sorry to say but small envelopes are not a good way to go. And if it is square, there is another surcharge also.

    Thanks

    It is now based on the dimensions of your envelope. Hard to calculate.

    Oh my goodness me, I feel as if it should be my birthday or something special, not just a plain ol' Friday! Three blocks arrived today and I am so excited!

    top: from hsquiltingmom, an extra swap from March, and one of the last ones I need for that quilt. Thank you so much, Kathy, it is gorgeous, the blue are terrific, and I love the block.

    middle: karielt sent me a star for my new theme. Thank you so much, Karie, I love it. It is absolutely beautiful and will look great. This was an extra April swap.

    and last but not least
    bottom: Jetnica sent an extra swap for April. Now, this block is brilliant! I am going to embroider the date on it, and use it for my label. Usually put labels on the back, but will probably put this one on the front! Thank you so mch, Jessica, it it gorgeous, and I love it.

    Judy,

    So glad you received it. I think it turned out really cute, and I am glad you like it.

    I had fun swapping with you. We will need to do it again.

    I would like to ask all of my swap friends to help me with a project. My daughter is graduating on the 29th of this month. The idea hit me tonight that it would be fun to do a food related wall hanging and some table runners. If anyone is up for an extra swap, I would like to swap with you. My only request on this swap is the block needs to be food related/

    Yes, I am a bit crazy, because I should have been working on this already.

    Thanks

    PaintmeJudy is so quick! Attached is the block I received from her for an extra April swap. It is the first one in my new teal and white theme. Thank you Judy. Yours and my block for my April partner, raya69, are done and will get mailed out next week.
