    It's about time, Bev.. I got mine out awhile ago. I was trying to clean up, and it was annoying me sitting there looking like it wanted to be out of the mess. Now all we have to do is wait for our envelopes.
    Thanks Rhonda for doing all the work.. You are greatly appreciated.

    Too funny! That's why I got mine in the mail...I needed the space. BTW Barri, I still have a package for you.

    Hi Mariposa,
    I tried to send you a private message but it could not deliver it because your folder is full. I was just wondering if you received my package of squares?
    Thanks for hosting this swap, I can imagine all the time it takes you to sort all of it.

    I put mine in the mail on Saturday - I feel like the postman is looking at me funny whenever I bring in this kind of package! He must not be a quilter. . . if he was, I'm sure he'd be more excited to see delicious fabric goodies!! Thank you Rhonda for this fun swap!

    My Goodness!! why didn't someone warn me about all the counting!! everytime I counted I came up with a different number...I must have counted 30 little mounds 3 different times...next the little bags...I forgot to put my name beside the user name so I had to take each piece of paper out then back in again after I added my name... Anyone have a good, easy system of doing this for future swaps? ...Yes, I will be doing it again I will get better at doing it..
    These little bundles will be in the mail tomorrow...All I can say now is...Whoopie!!!!

    Honchey, try a mailing label, you might want to add your board name too... although I usually have to add mine because I forget!

    I use the ones that might not be good enough to use on the envelope because they did not print real exact! AND... if you plan on doing more, I cut my scraps into sq's as I go along and put them into baggies as soon as I am done cutting them, with a slip of paper and how many are in the baggie, makes it a lot easier and one step ahead of the next Swap.

    Honchey - I, too found the counting to be a challenge when I did my first swap. I now try to include a couple extra, so if my counting is off or if there are 2 stuck together, I can still feel confident that my fellow swappers are getting at least 50. For me that ends up beein faster and easier than trying to count multiple times and getting frustrated with the interruptions (kids, husband, dogs...)

    Thanks for all the tips....I've started to organize my fabric on foam boards and have started to cut off pieces to use for stamps and charms...Now I'm thinking...I should cut 13 "" so I could get a 2.5 strip, layer cakes, charms & ps...another project in the thinking!!! I better stop thinking ahead..H.

    What I do for my labels is type them up with my name 'nelco' last name just like a sticky address label and print them on plane paper and cut them as I need them. I get 30 on a sheet of paper.

    I have never used squares this small. I saw this swap and the Candy 2.5" squares. Ok ladies. Here is a dumb question. What patterns are best for these tiny squares? Someone said they were not hard to sew. I am not sure.
    And I have to mail all the squares in baggie w/ my name and postage for return? What is the fastest way to cut 1.5"
    squares?? Deadline to sign up is tomorrow and I am on vacation until tomorrow. So I have to do alot of cutting when I get home.
