    I think that was all from Cathy, but I wouldn't be surprised if there is something more hiding in the box....I think it is like the Doctor Who 'Tardis' - do you get this programme in the States???? :D

    Now heres Sewbusys lovely selection of goodies :D :D :D

    Oh, wow! Just look at all of that eye candy! Cathy, I'd love to go shopping with you so you could help me with those lovely colors!

    Sewbusy, I love those wildlife materials! Izy, do they have animals like that in Spain? :oops:

    Yeah, we get Dr. Who in the U.S. and :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

    I love the log cabin you're starting up and the baby prints.

    You're going to be busy for months.

    I made a log cabin/9 patch combo quilt and selecting colors is my weakness.

    I mean, really, really, weak on selecting good colors.

    Now there lies the next task.....how to distribute lol!!

    I am open to suggestions...as I don't fancy being stood in the middle of twenty ladies all 'scrapping' lol!!!!!!

    So what do you all think....I want to be fair with them all, and between you and me...there are a couple of ladies in our group who are always at the front of the queue....do you understand me....got sharp elbows too!!!!!

    So how about if I wait til we receive all your lovely donations then I can sort it all out and colour cooridinate into piles and then wrap them all up and then we can have a great big lucky dip !!

    Does that sound a fair way to share them out?? I would appreciate your help on this one folks :D

    Put them into color coordinated paper bags (so the lucky ladies can't see whats in them) staple a number to each bag to close them. Put coresponding numbers in a basket and have each lady draw out numbers until all of them are drawn. Then each lady gets a surprise grab bag of fabric and/or what-nots. With random draws, sharp elbows can't prevail LOL

    There are wild boar around these parts, but thankfully I haven't met one yet. I think up in the national park there are deer, Lynx and such like and further up into Spain they will have a greater variety, but I don't think we have the range that you americans have :D :D
