    Since I am not one to sit, and do nothing about the US post office, I went back to talk to the clerk, and figure out whyI paid double of what I should have. When I ordered the padded envelopes, I ordered Flat rate express instead of flat rate priority. Flat rate priority are $5.30 to mail, and the others go by the weight. It make no sense that the others go by the weoght. Anyway I ordered the right ones.. Ughhh

    Hi, Rhonda
    I am at the point of laughing. I find it mind boggling that the guys that work for a company (USP), don't know customer service.
    I'm chalking this one up to stupidity. Both theirs, and mine. I did order the right ones, but even if I didn't send it then, I would've been late with it..

    Thought I had missed the deadline. Sure glad I didn't! I'll be sending my package tomorrow. Will try to get the padded flat rate this time. Sending 25 packets. Thanks for hosting the swap! Judy

    2013 has started on with a punch for us. I will not be sending you my square Mariposa. Two weeks ago I gave the to my husband to mail as I was sick (asthma was real bad)and not going out in the cold. Last night went down to pick up some dog food and what did I find but my package to you. So I will keep it and be all ready to mail next time I can not say much to him as are life has been turn upside down with things in the new year. New job for hubby.redo's to the house my sewing room is all most done. My grandmother is in the hospital she is 94 been going to see her as often as I can until she passes. then two weeks ago right around the time when I asked hubby to mail the package our firer box went in the furnace. Plus our 9 year old dog became sick so trip to the vet and $389. later.When will it end.lol I just need to keep smiling things will get better and only have the baseboard to be put on in my sewing room. Really looking forward to having a room just for me. There are some good things about the kids all leaving home I get a room for me I will be busy sewing all the square I have until the next swap that will keep me out of trouble.
    Hope you are all having a great day.

    Will you send our extras back so we can use them another time if you don't get the 20-30 we sent in?
    Will mine have enough postage for the rate increase? If not, let me know and I'll send more.

    We have quite a few that are not here yet. If there are not enough folks to swap out all sets, then I can send the extras back.
    Let's wait and see how many come in ~

    Darn, I just finished my 20 sets but it doesn't look like we have that many swappers.

    Could someone PM me with Mariposa's address, her mailbox is full.

    Thanks.

    Hello Rhonda did not get a chance to get to the post office yesterday had to have the furnace guy come out and take a look at the furnace and that always takes longer than they say it will. Anyways mailed today 30 sets and all the necessary stuff that goes along with it in a FRE here is the tracking # 420 99111 9405 5036 9930 0295 1192 71.

    I put my package in the mail this afternoon! As I was leaving school to go to the PO, I put the big baggie with the little baggies in it onto a radiator in the hall so I could zip my coat. . . the baggie slid onto the floor and all the little bags fell out! I got all the bags, but even though our custodians do a great job, there might also be a little bonus dust bunny in there as well! Sorry!
