    Well, I've decided to change from 20 sets to 30. I must be losing my mind. Sending PM to you Mariposa.

    Well I really tried to mail my package out today~ but it was not to be! I got to the Post office late, I had no idea that it was almost 5PM, I would have waited, well the mail lady was in a hurry to start her weekend! I wanted to send it to you with a note and I did not have time to write it?! So now I have finished my note and I found a envelope that is going to be reused and will work perfectly... So first thing tomorrow morning when I wake up it will go in the mail! I have to get up in time because the PO is only open for 1 1/2 hours tomorrow...

    We only have PO Boxes here in Crestline so you can, and usually do see everyone at the post office, it is a hot place to pick up town gossip, since I hardly know anyone, I am not one to hang out there, I just found out today that the PO is only open from 11:00 to 12:30. Can you imagine driving to work to work just 1.5 hours, maybe they work in the back for a little while too. So If I get up in time I will put it in the mail tomorrow. If not... When is the deadline again?

    That is pretty scary. We have six post offices within four miles. My P.O is three blocks away. All our mail gets delivered to the house. There are no mail boxes at the curb. Mine is open on Sat from 9-2:30. VS p.o is open late all week, and Sat until 5:00.. Lawrence p.o. is open on Sun 9-1:30.. Some have three people working at a time.. Mine only has two.
    Even though we have the post offices, you probably have air quality!!!!!

    marytoddliz-- you have plenty of time!

    Our PO is only open M-F 9-5. I'd have to drive 20+ miles to find one open for a few hours on Sat.

    Welcome, Samantha! I hope I get one of your baggies. I just received one today from one of your countryquilters in another swap. I love these swaps and wish there were more international participants.

    hey barri i see you have joined the yahoo postage stamp group. it looks like you and i along (and perhaps others) have been cutting 1000's of these little squares for the various swaps. well i am happy to report i have cut and mailed all of my squares for the 3 different swaps (yahoo, curious quilter, quilt board). now all i need to do is sit back and wait for my little gems to roll in. what anticipation!

    Well thank you! I'm sure there would be more of us if people "Down Under" knew about this group. I found it by "chatting in cyberspace" to Barri via another swap (Curious Quilter). Don't worry anyone who swapped with me there...I'm pretty sure 40 of the 50 charms are ones I haven't swapped before!
    I finished packaging them all up last night so they will be in the mail tomorrow morning (Monday). We don't have post on weekends!

    Hi Mary,
    I joined the Yahoo swap, but haven't gotten anything about being accepted. I must be insane. I have the envelope for Mariposa ready, but have to hit the P.O... Mom volunteered to go for me, but I hate to impose. She's 84.. I won't have a chance this week, as I'm in one office, and I'm covering.. In other words, working for two. I am hopefully going to Haiti in Oct, and need to save up time.. I also got two new boxes of scraps. I do have a major concern.. I'm not thrilled with my accuracy of cutting. Sheri was nice enough to do a demo on how to cut, and hopefully I will get to try it..

    How about spreading the word down under that the US people have squares to swap.

    what will you be doing in haiti? i interviewed with an organization last week with a business in haiti and am just waiting to hear from the director, yeah or nah. i need to get some of these boxes of scraps your receiving. what joy. if you find a solution to cutting your squares more efficiently then your accuracy will follow. there are so many ways to cutting 1.5" squares even from scraps. using the 1.5" corner of a ruler template with scraps should work wonders.

    here's hoping you find a good solution for you.
