We all have days months like that come on guys your not going to play because she has gone missing a day or so? really? patience is ok and worst case scenario you wait. Its ok it won't kill any of you I know because I hate waiting and look! I am alive! lol I am sure we will hear from her soon.

    It's not that I'm not "going to play"....side swap means just that...a swap on the side....each month members do it...most months I side swap with others. I'm happy to wait for Brenda and am most sympathetic as to whatever has delayed her. I appreciate her so much. We meant no offense.

    I am so glad you guys are going to stay I run another swap and trust me its a lot of work. fun but work. When life happens to us at times its hard to explain.. delays sometimes are inevitable. There was a poster who put they had withdrawn from the swap hence my comment . I side swap all the time. Its just too fun not to.

    Swap

    I also am open to a side swap. I have to check first to make sure I bought enough to do another swap. I am doing both Halloween and mixed.
    Well I went downstairs to my sewing room and I only bought enough Halloween fabric to do one swap but plenty of purple, black and orange. sooo, I am able to do one side swap. Anyone interested? PM me!

    Elisabrat, that "swapper" was me that said I withdrew from the swap. BUT, it had nothing to do with Brenda, I hope she is OK, but when someone mentioned a side swap, I said I wouldn't mind doing that. I can't seem to post anything anymore on the threads w/o someone coming back and having something to say about it. It was NOTHING against Brenda, it was just MY decision to do so. I really don't have to explain myself.

    Hiya Brat, I asked Yo about a side swap because it was such a fast sign up this time I missed out, and so did she. I would never "abandon" "our" Brenda! Nor you with your swaps! So just remember you're stuck with me! Bwahahahaaaaa!!!

    MSCupid,
    I agree we all have our own decisions to make, I posted once about tossing scraps that I had tried to donate, give away, etc. I got ripped by some..and much support by others. Brat hosts swaps, and I know where she's coming from, too. I think we're all a great bunch of gals!!!
    Take care all,
    Kif

    I live close to fabric stores and if needed I can buy enough Halloween to do another side swap.
    Just went to fabric shop, got some really cute Halloween fabric. So what I am trying to say is that does anyone want to side swap with me! I can do two, one halloween and one purple/orange/black.
    I'm cutting and getting FQ's ready tonight, then I will be ready when Brenda sends us names and also if someone want to side swap.
    I hope Brenda is okay.

    Thanks Kif. I wasn't picking on anyone btw. Do what you want. I was just asking the group as a whole to consider giving Brenda a bit more time. I think if you post here you can expect opinions. We are a diverse group with different thoughts, opinions and ways of doing things. I know this. I just asked for time for Brenda period. She has run this swap I hear for three years or close to it. This is highly unusual. There surely is a reason and for that I myself will be patient. I can swap or not swap one month wont be the end of the world for me (lucky me!). So if I ruffled feathers it was not my intent and therefore I apologize for any hurt feelings in my post. That is the last word on this from me I hope it is from everyone else too. sheesh.

    No explanation needed for me, Brat... I can only imagine how it is hosting a swap for a bunch of mostly gals...Yikes!!
    Please don't harrass me anyone for stating the obvious..sometimes when you get a whole group of us ladies together it can be um, well, fun..yep, that's the word I am looking for, fun... And, agreed, we are all going to have opinions..we all know the saying about THAT..
    Last words from me on this, too...or is it famous last words??..

    Now Brenda, if you have run off to a lush wonderful paradise just pm one of us so we will know you're OK, okay??..And we really won't think and say bad things about you lounging and taking it easy... I really hope you ARE on a vacay somewhere and all is OK!

    So much for vacationing in paradise..
    Brenda, I will so miss you being our leader, that being said, as I told Brat I can only imagine the amount of work that goes into being a Swap Hostess..and for years every month, well... I can only imagine.. That's one reason when I chimed in this month that I was in for 2, then noticed it was after the cut off I messaged you "Oops, sorry, don't add to your load with trying to mix me in, and I would get back in next time."...I can only imagine the work it takes...
    I respect your decision, and I know you deserve a much needed break...I say break as maybe you will take one and decide you may want to hostess again...You have been a terrific hostess!
    Regards (and a lil sad),
    Kif
    PS I am happy it was a "sick" computer and not a sick you or a loved one!
