    I've received a couple of packages in the last few days. I'll get them logged and posted.

    Thanks ladies!

    I did recieve your Candy! Thank you so much too for the Thread Catcher! I usually keep all the "prizes" until I swap Candy, but I want to take that baggie I have taped on my table off!

    I also received Candy from sustraley - BEAUTIFUL FQ's!
    and
    Lisa_wanna_b_quilter - yes yes I got your candy too! Thanks!!!

    We're up to 27 swappers with two possible on the sidelines. It's so fun when the deadline creeps up and we're anticipating all our new candy! I'm getting super excited!!!

    I'm glad the candy arrived. Let me tell you that print and ship from home was wonderful. I ordered the flat rate bubble enevelopes from the USPS site and the printed the label right here. Just paid with a credit card and stuffed it in my mailbox, but you can schedule an actual pick-up from your mailmain if you care to. For anyone who hates going to the post off it's a great service.

    Sheri,

    I am mailing my package today, but I forgot to include a return customs form. I did however include the return postage as stamps.

    Since I read the word "Next" I am being so diligent and cutting up my squares. I am starting to think how I want to start my project, so I have a question for those of you who have been collecting "candy" for a while. Do you start sewing before you have all of your fabric squares? Since I will be doing random placement I was thinking why not go ahead and start!
    Give a smile away today, someone you meet might need one!

    I sew those little guys together as I receive them and as I have time. They take forrrreverrrr if you sew as a project start to finish. How are you planning to put yours together? SueD

    Hey Sheri, My Mail Lady told me that when you mail on-line, the delivery confirmation is free. I'm going to use that if and when my envelopes ever get here! SueD

    Ok, really dumb question but I must ask because I really want to participate.... when you say "candy" does it mean "candy" type fabric? I assume it means any LQS cotton fabric regardless of the theme. Thank you in advance for clarification.

    We just mean 2.5" cotton squares. Like a layer cake is 10.5" and a jelly roll is a set if 2.5" strips. When I did my first swap I called it "candy" after a display I saw at my QS.

    Honchey, I'll watch for your package.

    Sue, let me know how your mailing goes.

    Mary, I have yet to start sewing my charms. I've done some leaders/Enders with 1.5". I have a design in my head. There's a great bunch of postage stamps quilts in the picture thread!

    I feel your pain! Some days I feel like I'm just cutting fabric into squares!

    SheriR - I'll be mailing my stuff tomorrow. I'm in for 10 Cotton, 5 Batik, and 5 Holiday. I finally dug through my stash and got it all cut. Plus I cut some extra for me to have on hand. And it really didn't thin my stash to much. But that's okay, I've got things to use it for!!!! Can't wait to see what I get back!!!!! I'm soooo excited!!

    Hi Sheri, FYI... I just found out from the post office that the "legal size" padded envelope is longer than the regular sized one and ships for the same price....good for swapping blocks and yardage as well....
