    QuilterMomma, Congrats on you weight loss. I know how challenging this can be. "You Go Girl" "You can do it"!! Because everyone needs a champion. Weight loss is very personal, but, any cheering along the way is usually welcome.
    Or at least in my case it usually is. I had my own eye opener experience and have set myself on a journey to get more fit and healthy.

    How are our blocks coming in? I am just curious because my DH wants me to make two cancer quilts, one for his cousin's wife and one for his ex-girlfriend. I know, but what can you say, she is the mother of his first born daughter. Anyway, I thought these blocks might make up a pretty cancer quilt for his cousin's wife Dee. She is fighting breast cancer. This way I know how much fabric to find and how much work I will need to do for two of them.

    Dear Red and participants of this swap,,,,I signed up to do this but....we have been doing a big time remodeling. I envisioned locking my self in my sewing room and ignoring it all, but when the workers saw my room and machines it was recommended that I hermetically seal the room, (Reminds me of the old Johnny Carson and the mayonnaise jar joke.) and STAY OUT until the job was completed. Are in the final stages of wrapping up but the bottom line is I wont have the sets ready by the mailing deadline.......It is always recommended that one have the sets finished before signing up and this is a perfect example! Lesson learned.

    I guess I will have to list the names of people who haven't sent yet. Maybe they forgot to mail the packages??
