My Wallhanging is complete…here it is…. I decided to do a barn quilt this round. This is the pattern I’ll be using to paint a barn quilt for my front porch. I even really like the colors so I may just replicate this in paint. It is 22”sq. I sewed the sleeve on last night…So I am officially ready to ship! Woohoo!

as always Teen, you entered a stunning wall hanging. Very pretty.

Hi Lena, Your wall hanging is very nice….maybe it will be mine! Never know with this swap. That’s part of what makes it fun. Glad you are joining us.

Teen, Love your wall hanging! Did you decide on the corner appliqués or were they in a pattern?
It adds a lot of interest. Very nice!

Thanks, Skaduzy….applique is my add-on….I wanted wall hanging to be bigger so I put a wide border and applique..

Your wall hanging is really lovely Teen . I just have the binding to finish then mine will be ready to send . I have spoken to Rhonda about the post as I heard that parcels from USA will be returned to sender. If it hasn't been sorted out by the time we are to send I will drop out . I will have one ready to send when the next one starts.Things could be back to some kind of normal by the end of October

Oh I sure hope that is not true and if so it will be resolved quickly. I for one enjoy you being part of this swap.

I'm in, it's been a crazy summer - so much going wrong - back yard, front yard, driveway, my feet, accepted a full time job with benefits (yeah) close my corporation down and found out I have to pay $45K in taxes from accumulated income I didn't spend over the last 15 years. I cried - I had saved up over $75K as "just in case" money, and now more than half is gone to taxes and I just had a vertigo attack three weeks ago, and turned 50 two weeks ago ... really hoping this year ends soon!

One of my friends said, well it could be worse - I almost snapped - really? this is what you tell me?????

I'm not looking for pity, but you know, a bit of sympathy won't get turned away ... we are all struggling with different things - some more than others, and some are better equipped to handle more than others - some have "broader shoulders / bigger plates" ... but to placate someone with "it could be worse" ... i hope if someone ever says that to you - you tell them flat out ... well for me, right now, this is about all I can handle so take a hike ...

Returned to sender? Why? That's crazy ... will they accept Canada? what is happening here??? Crazy, crazy, crazy ...

On a happier note ...
My pets are awesome so that's good, and I can still quilt so that's even better, and I'm looking forward to picking a wall hanging from the many I have made to send to someone.

Hope everyone is hanging in there, doing awesome, thriving ... or just getting by day by day ... hang in there, it does get better (I think LOL)
