    I wanted to join the birthday swap but was too late, by the time I saw it, it was full! My bad luck for getting there to late.. But I did join the club on the web site, I think the price is reasonable, because I too am addicted to the small squares, now if I could only find one for the tiny squares! I am doing some side swaps for the 1.5 and I am behind, but tomorrow morning I am heading back to California, very very early! I will get to see all my mail waiting for me, I have been gone a lot longer than I thought, and will be going back to Oregon shortly! Mom has surgery on the 18th... Too much traveling URG... really cuts into my sewing time!

    But it does look like I will have a lot more time in the future, taking care of her (mom) as she recovers.

    And getting back to California just in time to get my Valentine Candy! How wonderful!

    have fun waiting on your Candy~
    Give a smile away today, someone you meet might need one!

    I have candy!!! I haven't had time to go through each package but they all look wonderful. Thanks Sherri for the extra! What a great assortment. I have never bought for that holiday now I am wondering why! Thanks to everyone who took part in this swap and a special thanks to Sherri.

    I have candy, too! Sheri, thank you for the Valentine bundle. So nice of you to take the time so we can all have an extra goodie. You are the best!
    I got my 1.5 inchers today also. It doesn't get any better!

    I got my candy! Love it! My first swap and it was so much fun. Going through each bundle and loving all the different fabrics. Thank you, SheriR, for hosting this swap and for the Valentine candy. Can't wait for the next candy swap.

    My candy came! I love it all, of course. It's so much fun to look through other people's fabric. Some people have my fabrics and others have fabric I have never even seen before. It's a bit like window peeping only less dangerous.

    Thanks, Sheri for hosting and for the Valentine's Day candy. And even more so, for your regular swamp bag of repros. I love 30's and 40's repros so those have a home immediately in my super special stash box.

    I'm looking forward to the birthday swap and any other candy swaps that get cooked up!

    You should all be getting your candy. I think I'm as excited for you to receive it as you seem to be. It's sooo fun!!!

    I actually received my "Club" shipment from www.FatQuarterShop.com. Yipee!!! (FYI... The charm packs average out to $4.46 per. )

    Hugs all!!!

    O.K.. I was being so smart when I posted the above......... no snow, no rain, no hail and no tornadoes in our area, so why is the mail 4 hours late today?

    Thanks so much Sheri and all the participants. Love the extra Valentine Candy. What a great idea. My husband thought I should use some of these I received in the mail when he saw me cutting squares for the birthday swap. Crazy men. They just don't understand.

    What a happy surprise this morning.....I received my Candy!!!! I was busy sewing yesterday and lost track of the time/day.... and then the package came...I'm doing a happy dance... I'm also doing another "candy" swap and I'll be ready for the next one when it comes along...only problem I'll have is remembering which ones not to include because there are several of us doing them also..how to keep them separate?? any suggestions?

    When I first started swapping I was told not to worry about it. If someone gets dups, they can always save them for the next swap.

    Thanks! One year I was going thru a rough patch and heard Dr. Phil say this and I never forgot it. DH hates it.

    I wouldn't worry much about mingling swap candy. I try to keep mine seperate by bagging all I have for the given swap. Like this time I bagged all the 30's I cut. That's just me though. My method isn't perfect. It's sort of in my head. I actually am making a special "Birthday Candy" set that I'll only use there. Maybe that's my personal OCD? LoL

    I try not to worry (too much) about mingling candies. That being said, I try to keep track and I do try to cut some from recently acquired fabric for each new swap. That way I am sure I am sending some new ones each time. My LQS is closing I hit their 40% last week so I will for sure have new goodies to share with the birthday girls.

    I got mine Yippie, as I am leaving in the morning Truck packed to the top with all my sewing toys... I have no idea how I got it all in! I know there is room for this bag o' Candy!

    I hate leaving scraps behind, but I guess I will just have to buy more later!

    My PS package is waiting for me in Oregon. I have to remember to give the new address when I do the next swap. Hubby will forward to me, but why waste the postage!

    Thank you Sheri for hostessing this swap, I love it, and I love your extra Candy pack! And thank you all swappers, you make it so special!

    btw... I got my first Moda Candy club swap! I like the assortment and I will stay in the club for a month or two, but really it is an expensive way to get my candy!
    Give a smile away today, someone you meet might need one!
