    My health run me behind but I have stayed in touch with Carrot. Today we will swap in person, I know way late but that was my fault, not Carrots. Im so excited today and so thankful I got a partner who understood my health issues.

    Karen and her hubby Steven are lovely people I had the best 2 hrs with them then I've had in a year. I love my quilt and she said she loves hers. I got the best one though. LOL We spent time touring my new house I'm not moved into yet.
    I am however moving in the upstairs which is finished and will be my new quilt studio. Karen and her hubby took the pics I forgot my camera if you can believe that. I usually always have a camera. Got that from my granny just like I did making quilts. I'm so thankful Karen was my partener. She also made me a chicken pin cushion and a lovely FW wall hanging she is the best. I really love everything she made me. But I've got to say I been looking for that FW machine pattern for a long time and now I have a wall hanging. She said she will email the pics and post them here soonest.

    Well I think we are both lucky, I'm sleeping with my quilt tonight does that tell you how much I love mine???. Thanks so very much Karen for posting the pics and giving me the honor of meeting you and your hubby. I so enjoyed the visit I think I talked way to much, sorry about that, bless your heart for putting up with my chatter. Remember to email me your address so I can send your label, Just giving you permission to keep me reminded, LOL

    So glad to see that most of the quilt exchanges we started out with have actually happened. And I totally agree with didi - has the quilt been returned and is there ANY thought of getting it back over there?

    Those are both beautiful quilts! Wow. Neat sewing studio too. I'd be happy just to have that as a living room! Oh, who am I kidding, it would turn into both with me.

    ValleyQuilterMo and Carrot, I am so happy this has all worked out for both of you and that you were able to have your quilt exchange in person. That's so special! Both of your quilts are so beautiful!

    I have been a similar situation (being sick myself) for far too long. My partner, SewnMom, sent her quilt out to me a couple of months ago and I kept working on hers as much as I could. Bless her heart she has the patience of a saint! Today, I finally got her quilt all wrapped up and put it in the mail. She's going to take the pictures since I don't have a digital camera.

    I hope you love it SewnMom! Bless you for being so patient with me.

    The quilt has not been heard of since arriving in Brazil. I am the one who made the quilt for her and pray it was not lost or stolen somewhere in the confusion. Can't make any decisions on what to do until we have something to do it with!
