    If we use the preprinted labels, they bark at it. So when I do those, which I have been instructed not to now, I always put my return and send to address mine so it does not go back to the hostess.

    Just checking to be sure you are posititve on sending ours out. Have to check up on you. (hahahahahahahah)

    I received my blocks today and they are all lovely, and I appreciate the work involved in the construction.

    But, 9 of the 24 blocks I received back are all by the same person. 2 of which are exact duplicates.

    I have to admit I expected a wider variety than to receive back almost half of what I sent in all the same style, pose and background fabric.

    This was my first swap of this type and I guess I expected more variety having so many potential swappers.

    oh no! I tried not to have that. I thought I did a better job of sorting :(

    would you like me to make you a few blocks? Might take a few days or so before I can get to it.

    Well it is blurry, can't read real well, so I guess I will hav eto take your word for it. Love the fact you took me so literally. I hope they are in my mailbox tonight so I can take a picture of the envelope dated and all the gorgeous blocks you swapped for just me. you are just to cute. The toes look cute. If I could, I would take a photo of my toes that my daughter painted for me. They are lime green with florescent yellow flowers painted on them. Thanks for having fun with me.

    No worries. QuilterMomma - I think I had to send you one of your entire sets back unswapped - you'd sent over 36 (offhand) I don't remember exactly. I had a 2 year old "helping"

    Oh, so you have child labor as well. Hmmmmmmmmmmm going to have to report this now.

    I think I did send six sets. Once got started, could not stop. I can make a nice baby quilt with them or add a few others to make it different.

    I got my blocks in today and love them all! No doubles here though I do have one question for someone who's name I couldn't find on it. Someone used some kind of iron on stabilizer for their embroidery on a tan background. I will put a picture up of it later. But my question was.... What kind of stabilizer was that?

    I received the same tan block too. All you have to do with the stabilizer is peel it & cut it away from the cotton.

    I did have some issues sorting - some people sent 24+ blocks and others sent just 6. I tried my best.

    If anyone isn't happy let me know what I can do to make it better.

    This was my first time hostessing - so sorry if anyone is disappointed.

    Received my blocks today along with my daughter. They are all beautiful and neither of us had any duplicates. Thanks you did a great job hosting even after a rocky start. Thanks again.

    Received my blocks today. I know I was one of those that sent many sets. I did get mine back and had three dubplicates. But I understand. My daughter has laid claim to them for pillows. I wanted to make two complete quilts of 24 blocks each. Will get busy and make a few more so I have enough. My designs are different and will make a few of the full hand applique and the embroidery ones. I just love them and thank you all for such wonderful work.
