    We use USPS. Don't make it a big deal and don't claim a ton of value. Sadly they get charged if you insure.

    Wyldwytch,
    The 2012 swap is closed and complete. I am still ambivalent about doing it again. I have about 3 weeks to decide. (December used to feel SO far away.) Right now, this moment, I have a horrendous head cold, so I am not allowing myself to make ANY decisions. ;-)

    Beth, you are amazing. 99/120 = 82.5% complete. AMAZING. (but that's still 21 to go in six weeks during holiday season... yikes!)

    Is it possible your space is now being taken over by COMPLETED UFOs?

    Not a problem Jillaine, totally understandable. When you do decide just keep me in mind since I am really interested.

    Thanks...

    I wish that was the case, but those are over taking behind the loveseat in the living room which I am going to have to rearrange soon for Christmas. Yikes there. I think it is because the leftovers are stacking up inside the cupboards thinking they need to be UFOs on me. My little avatar is on guard and they will not come back I am sure. Learning to just put leftovers in the fabric pile instead of ufo piles. I think once I get these last ones done then I will be ok. I am finishing up three Thanksgiving runners that I have had for a couple of years. I finished the tops, not real fancy, but finished and they are on the longarm. Going to give them away to family this weekend. And yep, 21 more to go and I am going to do it. I just have to so I do not disappoint myself. Then News Year Eve, I can really celebrate the end of a wonderful year of completion and then onto next years goal, scrapbooks put in order. That will be an interesting one for sure. Also, will be working on just show type quilts from the remaining UFOs that I have still. Thre are some of these projects that take an intense amount of time that needs full attention to detail. Would love to win another ribbon next year.

    Ok everyone, mailing out Caroline's quilt today. Finally. never thought I would get it out the door. It is going Express Mail because I spent the extra $15 to be sure would get there a bit earlier than 15 days. Here is the tracking number. Everyone pray it goes like it is supposed to.

    Express Mail International Flat Rate Box #EC
    982 946 543 US

    Hi Guys,

    As some of you may know my partner in this swap, for whatever reason, failed to keep her side of the commitment. But what you will definitely know, is that this board has the greatest people on it. A group of them got together to ensure that I didn't miss out. Well their fabulous creation arrived this afternoon. Not only do I love the colours and the pattern, they really are something I would have chosen myself, but the quilting is just amazing.

    IT IS BEAUTIFUL - JUST LIKE THE LADIES WHO CREATED IT!!!!

    I am posting today to say a great big, huge, massive thank you to the ladies who went out of their way to make sure a fellow quilter felt part of their group.

    So..... Annaquilts, Lindy-2, Carrot, TwinRiverFarm, Linda58, Watterstide, Vanogay, QuilterMomma, Jillaine and Celeste, thank you all so much... You are all wonderful.

    Hugs and thank you!!!!

    I was so excited that it got delivered. Was thinking about it all weekend. Thanks for posting the photo. If you didn't I surely would have. That striped fabric worked so nicely on it. Enjoy and keep warm now. Mine are all being used again by the family that I have to fight for them so they don't take them. The Christmas quilts are coming out now so there is more than enough for warmth.

    Wow! It came out so beautiful! See, good things come to those who wait (as my grandmother kept telling impatient little me...) So... is our swap 100% done yet, or are there any other orphans out there?
    May your blessings be many, your troubles few and your fabric stash endless!

    Okay, ladies, I've decided to repeat the swap-- assuming PatriceJ approves it. It will be in a new topic, so those who want to play again-- same rules-- keep an eye out. Signup deadline will be mid January, I think.
