    Sorry to go MIA yesterday - had an early dental appt on a problem crown, ended up having to pull the tooth. My immune system is so compromised a dental infection continuing was going to be a real problem. So I was on pain pills and went to bed - but am better this morning. And it is too cold for ice packs!

    Ladies, keep hunting for I Spy fabs and jump on in!
    One day, when I am frayed and strained and drizzle at the end, please someone cut a square and put me in a quilt that I might keep a child comforted.

    I didn't have much I spy fabric so I ordered some from 4my3boyz.com. It should be here tomorrow hopefully. If I does then I will have all weekend to cut my I spy fabric. Right now I had enough for 2 sets.

    Wow! You have 112 bags of charms ready to go? Boy, I'm just a piker with my 2 sets. Be sure and label them set 1, set 2, etc. It will make it tons easier for Rena.

    Maybe I said it wrong bkay, I have 14 bags of 10 different fabrics. If 14 is too many I can take some out?

    Of course not. Don't worry about it. You can probably rearrange the charms to work. The I Spy group has done the swap a certain way for a while. Redstillettos did her I Spy swap like she has done her all of her 5" charm swaps. The "old rules" for I Spy, which Rena is using was used prior to her illness and is the one the previous host of I spy swaps used.

    A "set" of charms is 8 bags of 10 charms. The charms in each bag must be 10 different fabrics. A set can have all the same 10 fabrics in each bag, or they can be different. If you want to swap more than one set of 8, the second set should be a totally different from set 1. You can swap as many "sets" as you would like, as long as each set is unique. Label each set as set 1, set 2, etc. This process gives more variety to the charms you receive.

    Just rearrange your charms. It will be fine.

    Well I went shopping and didn't find a whole lot of anything different or interest sparking.

    I might be going up to my cabin where my sewing stuff is this weekend. So unless I have more in my stash I can use, I might be sitting this one out

    Stay tuned....

    I assume you meant 14 bags of 10 fabrics?

    Is it too late to sign up? If not, I am in for 1 set of 8 bags, 10 different fabrics. I hope I've found some unique fabrics. They should be ready for mailing before Friday.

    No, it's not too late. She says she wants it in her hands by Feb 28. I have a mail date for me of Feb. 22. So we have at least two more weeks until mailing time.

    Rbwiese, if you would like, I can make two more bags send them to you and put in extra money for shipping.
