    Hello Ladies. We were to ship the last round in June so let's check in please. Here is what I think the standings are:
    Alikat's top is home with her
    Nexxus' top is home with her (or sent on to Kelly as requested)
    Lestrong's top is with Nexxus (?)
    Sazu's top is with Lestrong
    Dragonfly's top is with Sazu

    Yes, I have Dragonfly's. I have got the border on now. I'll try to photograph it tomorrow. I won't be able to get to the post office until Wednesday though I'm afraid. Sorry I'm running so late with this one.
    However in other news I've been offered a new job which I should start at the end of next month, which with substantially reduce my commute (by around 3 hours a day!), and so hopefully will increase my available quilting time in future!

    Oh - Congratulations Sazu! A long commute is quite difficult - so happy for you.
    No worries about the shipping-take all the time you need. (I can say that because it is my top!)
    I just needed to do a check in to make sure everyone was still active.

    So I packaged the top up... and then forgot to actually post it and instead buried it under something else. It is now in the mail, but was only posted yesterday. Sorry for the delay. Hopefully it'll get to you soon.
    I managed to get a couple of pictures on my phone, although the colours aren't true - its a bit dark. Its also a little wider than my desogn board. I returned to the centre for inspiration, adding on point squares. Hope you like it.

    Oh Sazu - I love how you brought the darker colors back. Thank you for a perfect finish. I will let you know as soon as it arrives.

    My top made it home today. Thank you ladies for all your hard work. I know my work neighbor is going to love it - once I get it quilted.

    That is a beautiful top. So! Now for my weird story for Nexus regarding her top. Yes! I mailed it some time ago, not sure of exact date...anyway, Melinda and I texted and spoke last weekend. Her mom never got it. I searched friday for the receipt, but did not find. Saturday, I went to PO seeking help. Here is where I have mixed feelings about customer service at the post office....the PO attendant knows who I am by sight, just because I am a fairly regular customer and we frequently discuss my quilting. (Good). They PO had a package that was "damaged" before it even left their building. See the first picture! Because she knew who I was, when they decided to open package to check contents, she knew it was mine. Unfortunately, she did not know my name or address, just has always been friendly chit chat. Long story short....when I went in, she immediately asked me about a "missing package". I about fainted that she knew!!!! (GREAT). Unfortunately, she did not have a clear explanation about what happened! (Relevant? Maybe not in the grand scheme, but sure am curious! ) I have not joined any other swaps, so had not been in in some time, she had been waiting for me to come in. Another good thing, she had gone in to work that morning,due to other staff member being sick ( What Luck!). So now, pic of box and contents....
    Melinda, this will spoil my surprise I was sending to you and you mom, but best news is minimal damage to contents of package. I WILL remail this weekend. Please forgive me this huge delay. Due to the mostly great customer service, I will still use the PO....I have faith!

    The fabrics are musty and stained. Looks like probable coffee spill??? Two of the books papers also got wet and papers stuck together. Other books and your quilt top was unharmed. I thank God for this blessing!

    The only thing I can say is wow. My hubby retired from PO and he has never seen that. Thank you for finding it and getting it sent on.

    Oh my word that is stunning. This is the first picture we have seen in a long time of Sazu's top.

    Great work ladies.

    Love the repeat of the center. I thought of doing that, but hesitated. It is a fabulous final round!
