    Hi SheriR, just checking in with you to see if we're still waiting for another package to arrive before the candy is mailed. (That's the last I recall reading.) Hope all is well and that nothing else has happened to upset you or your family. You've had your share this summer. I'd sure appreciate an update if you are able as I'm just itching to get my hands on those squares. I've already started piecing with some I have. Thanks for your considerable efforts!

    I mailed my squares the week of July 4th and sort of anxious but SheriR's swaps are wonderful and worth the wait!

    I know you're all anxious and you'll be shocked to hear.....CANDY IS IN THE MAIL!!!!!

    I think if anything could go wrong, this time it did, including running out of tape to apply the mailing labels. I'll be pming all of your tracking numbers to you. Deliveries should be Wednesday...ish???

    Thank you all for your patience. I would like the new swappers to know I'm usually ahead of the game not behind... I hope you all LOVE your candy. And mostly I hope the sweet treat I sent doesn't melt...lol...

    Quilty HUGS!!!

    I just checked my delivery confirmation and it shows it was delivered. I will be home in about 1 1/2 hours, and will get to look at the candy. I can't wait. Have to clean my little Lucy's ears out and give her the antibiotics. This was well worth the wait.

    Thank you Sheri for hosting this swap. Many prayers for you and your family.

    I left town for a week and put a hold on my mail but asked my neighbor to watch things. She noticed a package in the box and said I got a package from SheriR. So my squishy is home waiting for me to get back. Wondering why the mail carrier delivered the package with a hold on it. Thank goodness for good neighbors! Now I want to go home and see what came my way but it will have to wait while I play with my grandchildren.

    Wow!! I'm so excited. My very first swap and I love it. Thanks Sheri for all your hard work. I had one small bite of the candy. I'm diabetic so my DH really enjoyed it. I'm ready for another swap!!

    Y'all make me smile. You're so wonderful! Glad you could take a nibble papagran, I worried about sending the "Spud" out but, it's classic Idaho. My NorthDakota daughter bought a whole case (10 dozen) when she came for the funeral. We love passing them out lol. Isn't it funny. When she got married we got bite size Spuds to decorate the groom cake.

    SheriR, Thank you so much for the unexpected little package with the real candy! The extra fabric was a treat to find as well. I appreciate your work. Thanks for helping us all out! And thanks to Fraew from CA for the fabric too. It's so nice to see new prints I haven't seen here in my local quilt shop!
