    Garnet1265, Thank You for the info. Please, post when the quilt finds its way back to you. I'm sure that some of us on the board will help to send it back to Brazil...I'm sure me and the others do not blame anyone for this dilemma. I have never shipped across the sea, so I probably would of have done the same thing. This is a lesson for alot of us and you where the teacher.

    The package arrived on Oct.6 .
    As I was not able to pay import taxes + daily deposit it was sitting in PO warehouse till Nov.5.
    Now its due back to customs and next step is return it to sender.
    I do not know how this works but can go there ask and see if there is any kind of tracking.
    The risk of being stolen / lost exists thou.

    I remember a post telling the lady at US PO suggested a U$100 value because of the insurance , lets keep our fingers crossed that all go well on its way back home.

    I can't quite believe it's November again. Seems like it was just June. It was a year ago we started thinking about this swap. After all the work entailed, frankly, I've been ambivalent about doing it again. So, advise me, please! Should I? I'm getting requests already!

    I'd be willing to give it a go again, but then, I was one of those that had no problems. I don't know if I'd be so willing it my quilt was somewhere lost between here and who knows where - you know all that work and.....

    IF I did it again, I think I would limit it to continental North America/United States. Sorry to those of you across the seas, but the international shipping (with the exception of US<->Canada) was so stressful. Pretty much every pair involving international shipping (again not counting US-Canada) had a problem. I don't think I could bear that again, and I wasn't even directly involved!

    This is just a suggestion, maybe we could do a wall hanging..it could be of different sizes..you could choose which size to join..example::: small, medium and large...I choose the medium and you connect me to another medium. I hate leaving out the ones over the ocean..and it wouldn't cost as much to send a wall hanging. Plus, now we know how to send them by not claiming so much on the form.

    Didi, thanks for caring.
    Last year I took part in a RR with 9 players per group.
    Nine quilts received and sent back without ANY PROBLEM AT ALL.
    Btw - I think my quilt ended up being one of the prettiest ..

    Well good, let us hope it scares those UFOs and stops their reproduction of more UFOs.

    Thank you so much. The little squirrels have to defend their food from the crows somehow. My daughter sent this to me and I just could not refuse to use it as my avatar. It came when I needed a defense against UFOs. As you may know, I am at 99 UFOs completed with a goal of 120 for the year. I went out to the garage to hide a gift in the fabric cupboards where children dare not go, and could not find a spot to put it. I asked myself, "I have done 99 unfinished projects and I have no place in my cupboards to hide anything, why have these things not made a hole? Have I not made a dent in my projects? Where are they coming from?" So hence, the squirrel is my defense against those pesky reproducting UFOs that are happening in my garage. How do they do it?

    Well if fabric is reproducing, then you are ok, it is just those unfinished things that never seem to go away but multiply. I could always stand for more fabric. i wish that was the problem then I could do more projects, but those yucky ufos just don't. Made my partners their quilts with the ufos, then I still had more left over and made three more lap quilts and one full size.

    At first I thought the squirrel his holding a gun, but look closely and you'll see that it's a fire fighting squirrel with a fire hose and captain's helmet--that makes it a lot less creepy. He's just trying to save the forest I guess, as well as spraying all the UFOs out of the sky. Those PHDs better watch out too. After all, who knows if squirrels like scientists?

    Ok, Beth is stuck, how do I ship internationally again. Just want to do it right and you experienced ladies could asistn. An envelope is one thing, but a whole quilt is another. I have emailed caroline and waiting for response. There is a time change difference. I checked on USPS and there are a few options. Do I use them or UPS or Fed Ex? Haven't checked prices on the others, but I just want it there. Any info is welcome.

    So can't afford Fed Ex, so going to have to use the regular postal service even though will take a bit longer. Delivery Confirmation will have to be enough. Fed Ex was $198 on the 10 lb box. I know it would get there, but.....
