    Yay!!! I have squares! I have grandchildren here this weekend so I could only do a quick glance at all those little packages. As soon as I have some quiet time I will give them more attention! Thanks everyone that took part in this swap.

    Think I'm having sensory overload. I was going to sort my precious squares into color piles, and a light bulb went off in my brain asking me if I was crazy. I went through them, and am still amazed that I don't have many duplicates, but could not put them into any order. They are making me very happy just looking at them. I guess I should start sewing them?????

    Hi All, I was called into work yesterday and of course I brought the stamps into work so I could sew all day and that's exactly what I did whenever I got the chance...Had lots of fun and lots of questions from customers....

    I agree with goldendog55--nice to see "friends" names on the packages. I love all the different varieties. Great job everyone. And thanks Mariposa!!

    Some of mine didn't have where they came from. I always like to see at least what state they come from.

    I spent 2 hours last night just unwrapping and sorting. I was lost in my own little happy place. I still have 3 packages left to open. I'm glad I saved some for tonight. I have in mind to keep a list of where all my goodies came from and list it on the back of my quilt.
    Thank you to everyone!

    I'm a little late to the party, but I got my squares last Friday. It made a very long, boring work night go by quick while I peeked in the baggies every so often to ooh and ahh over all the pretty. Now to get some time between work and school to sew... right now all I get time to do is look longingly at my stash and squares in passing. Thank you everyone and especially you Mariposa for playing host.

    So sorry I haven't posted sooner. Having major internet connectivity problems that we can't seem to figure out. Grrr - I'm an internet addict, lol!

    I did receive my little squares. They are all so lovely! Still not sure what I am going to do with them, but now I have quite a few so need to give it some serious thought. Possibly the Film at Five quilt that a link was given for. Thanks, everyone, for helping me get such great variety!

    Sorry you have to exercise such patience. I'm sure it will be worth the wait. Let us know when you get your squares.

    Paper Mache, ten layers. The first five are with out the nose, ears, legs and tail, then you put those on with masking tape, I use part of a paper egg crate. after you tape them in place 5 more layers of paper and then let dry for 3 to 5 days, depending on weather and how dry they get, but you really want them totally dry, then I put on the layer of fabric, topped off with clear coat, two coats. Cut your coin slot before you put on fabric layer and use a stelletto to push fabric around money slot. I don't put a cork on mine but I know if you want to you can get them at Michael's. Cut your hole for the plug same time you cut the money slot.

    I think I have the tutorial on my blog page, I will check it out and put a link if i do.
