    [QUOTE=Fraew;5531346

    I am into "period" these days: Traditional Civil War, 30s fabrics and blocks.

    I wouldn't be able to resist a scrappy star; mason jar; funky house pets (like what the dogs, cats, fish, birds and hamsters are up to when no one is home) or color themed like red/white/blue, red/white, black/yellow, etc.[/QUOTE]

    I have been really intriqued with Civil war and 1930's too. I know I would not be able to resist a Sun Bonnet Sue with 1930 fabrics. It has been on my wish list for as long as I quilt. Some how I always missed them. I love all the other ideas mentioned too and the boy swaps. I do know the timing of a swap is important for me. right now I want to be sure I have adequate time to complete my swap commitments. With Nov. and Dec. around the corner I could not have a swap like Sun Bonnet Sue ending till well into 2013. Wow!

    Ok... I have just finished sorting all the blocks.
    We had 12 swappers & a total of 222 blocks!!!!
    It would be hard for me to pick a favorite block, they are all great.

    Hope to get these in the mail by the end of the week.

    Wow, that is a lot of blocks. I am sure we will all get different ones back. Oh thank you ms grace for being the block shuffler. It is better than the alternative those animals are leaving there.

    Yes, I tried to be very careful so everyone got different blocks back.
    You may get more than 1 from a person, but if you do, they will be from her different sets.
    They are super cute!

    Sheri, if you did not recieve one of my piggies, pink piggy on bright green mottled back ground, I'd gladly trade you. I did not realize we would receive our own blocks back so I had made an extra set for myself. It is sitting and waiting for you, if you want, center bottom front of picture. Oink, oink!

    I am here.
    If you notice that my screen name has changed a little.
    For the last week, I've tried to log in on my old name, and it would not let me.
    It's like I never existed! So, I had to register under a new "name".
    I know lots of you have probably sent pms to me. Well, of course I have no way of getting to them.
    I've lost my log-in, pm's, feed back scores...everything!!
    Don't know what happened!!
    Sorry for being MIA, it's not my fault.

    Now you have to start all over again for those feed back scores. That is no fun.
