    Hurray! Another new participant:
    Short an Sweet
    Theme: orange, lemon yellow, and green (sherbert colors).

    She needs a partner for November. I know there are many participants who are willing to do extra swaps - the first one who sends me a PM will be her partner. Thanks!

    EDIT: SHE NOW HAS A NOVEMBER PARTNER. THANK YOU!

    And, WELCOME, Short an Sweet!

    The one with the rising sun was an idea I had, from a head scarf my son (7 yrs. old) was given when we had a Japanese exchange student many years ago.

    The second block is a "Frog" I designed to honor my Grandmother (age 104 when she died). She taught me many things about sewing...and how to sew of course...but she taught me how to hand-make "Frog" closures on Mandarin collar clothing. This was thought to be a "fine" sewing skill, according to her. Thus, you received the "Mandarin Frog Block."
    Glad you liked it.

    I think it is fun for the receipient to have "first" surprise at seeing it and then can post a picture for all to see. However, some folks are not able to take a photo and post pictures so then it's nice for the maker to do so after it has been received.

    Would like to hear more opinions on this. . .

    Good question. Definitely post pictures of the blocks you received. Then, if whoever gets yours can't post pictures it would be nice of you to post the ones you made after they get them.
