    Hugs to you, Sheri. Hope all settles down for your grandparents soon.
    I finished cutting my candy squares last night. I was going to stop after the cotton candy, but then decided to go on and do the batiks, too. I LOVE batiks, so I didn't have to twist my arm too hard. Anyway....I'm really excited to have them all cut out so that I can start sewing on another project soon. Looking forward to swapping these!

    I have been away for a few days. Sorry to hear about Granddad, Sheri. The US postal "Gremlins" are at it again. My package got mangle/obliterated/destroyed beyond all recognition. I got remnants back yesterday. I have been cutting since 4am. A replacement will be in the mail today.

    Oh goodness.... I'm sorry about your package. I'd cry if I were you. And re-cutting... Dang!! My daughter lost her swaps in the mail once too. Yosamitesa received her envelope empty! I learned to put my name and address on everything then. With my candy or stamps, I put each little baggie of swap set in a gallon ziplock Baggie and my name and address on that. I also use the padded legal envelopes I order from USPS.com for free. I've never had one of those bust. Thank you for your extra work!

    My Father-in-Law passed yesterday. It's sure been a heavy emotional unexpected week... One more week of emotion to go. I'm exhausted but did happen to shop yesterday morning and replenish my two day supply of toiletries. And found you all a treat. I was greatful to brother-in-Law for the reprieve. I'm glad I wasn't gone long so I was able to be there for sweet Mother-in-Law. Her strength has been my goal and reason for staying a week ago. I hope I haven't upset anyone by posting. Thanks for your kind words. So it will be the first of August AT LEAST before I get home to all your candy shipments. Thank you for being wonderfully understanding.

    Sorry for your loss Sheri. Hugs and prayers for you and the family.
    Take time to grieve and rest as you can.
    May you feel God's presence as you face the days ahead.

    Sorry for your loss buddy. Take care of you and yours!

    Our fun and games can wait until whenever you are ready to resume as far as I am concerned. I am happy to do whatever I can to help. Hugs

    Prayers for you and your family. It is a stressful time. Candy can wait. There are more important things to attend to.

    Sheri, prayers for your family in the time of loss. Don't worry about the candy, it will be there when you get home.

    The replacement is in the mail! I really can't wait, but I will understand if our original response date is pushed back. Right now, it looks like I will be deploying to Afghanistan in January. So, I can wait until Christmas!

    Marytoddliz,
    I didn't even notice the white middle squares until you pointed them out. The saying is true, 'We are our own worst critics'!

    Marytoddliz,
    I didn't notice the white middle squares either. Make some strong tea, get a small paintbrush and tea dye a couple of them! It is a quick and easy way to tone down a few of the whites.

    Sheri. so sorry for your loss. What a stressful time for you.

    can I join the cotton candy swap? I will PM Sheri with my info and sign up for 2 sets.

    Sheri, so sorry to hear all the sad news. Prayers and warm hugs are coming your way. You take care of yourself and your family.
    And don't worry about all of us. Candy doesn't go bad. It can wait as long as need be.
    Hugs,
    Shelley

    Hi, all! I PM'd Sheri that I may be ale to come up w more sets once I dig out the stash today. I have a retreat on the 30th and 31st and bet I can put the word out and come away with a ton of scraps,from the other gals. There are usually 20 of us. We rent a wedding event center for 2 days mid week, get a great rate on the facility because not much activity during the week. Not a sleep over but we can leave our stuff there overnight. Great way to have a reasonably priced retreat!

    Sheri, sending up a prayer for you & your family right now.
    I finished my 15 sets (no batiks, sorry) & will mail them this week.
    Please do not stress about this swap, it can wait until you are ready. You'll need time to grieve, decompress, & get into the groove of your general life before you can finish the swap. I'm very willing to wait.
    If I can help please call on me.
    Hugs, DJ
    Motorcyclemad, Thank YOU for your service!

    Sheri, I am so sorry for your loss, and the tough times you have been having! I am glad you are there for the family, it is tough, but precious memories.
    Give a smile away today, someone you meet might need one!

    I got my swaps mailed out yesterday. I know they'll arrive early, but that's okay. It's always a relief to get the swaps sent out! Take care, everyone!
