    I did get my block back I made for Cordelia - I guess you didn't - sorry. I did not sent the one for quilting turtle, since I knew she dropped out before I sent mine.

    Bett - in reading the past posts, there was a post that said Barb M had sent in her blocks - so don't know what happened - maybe bebe misplaced them, maybe they never arrived.


    Bebe, sounds like the girls need some answers!!!

    Okay let's all breathe a moment.
    :-)
    Cordelia wasn't in group 2 (where the missing block trouble is) she was in group 1.

    Ya'll are right about mine...I only got 11...and I had included my "extra" from Beachlady in the pic. I did get the block I made for Cordelia back with my blocks though.

    Thanks Dazzleme and Nellie for letting me know which ones you made...I figure out the last one now. :lol: Of course, I love them all :lol:

    Can you guys pm me your addy and the block you need? I have them here- I have been working 12 hr days and week ends. I set them aside to mail but I don't go to the post office often so they got buried under wedding shower stuff. I missed the deadline to mail.

    My humble apologies- I do have them!!! They are cool looking. I will mail them out asap to you individually. I will also include an envelope with postage on it if you want to send my block to me. If not, I understand.

    You may beat me now....... I am a delinquent.

    Barbm

    P.S. off to work now- why can't I win the lottery so I can stay home and quilt- oh yeah, right- you have to play to win and I don't buy lottery tickets.

    I honestly am going day to day, putting out fires as I go. Trying to train an employee, other employee comes back next week (she works for H&R Block in tax season). Wedding shower is in 2 weeks. Buying building at the end of the month, need to coordinate contractors to work and then move by 5/22/09.

    Then wedding 6/13. breath- just slightly, then on to next wedding shower at end of July and then wedding in Sept. Add in 3 family reunions, an assortment of car shows and cruises. I figure I will come up for air at the end of October.

    I will probably not be online much, just a snippet here and there to relax myself (that's what I do now- 5 min. and then gone, just enough to lower the blood pressure and back to work).

    I certainly won't be joining any swaps or groups- I'll be lucky if I can just sew a seam or two along the way.

    I received my blocks and they are all beautiful. I'll post a photo as soon as I can get new batteries for my camera.

    I still need to make more of the blocks in order to have enough for a queen sized quilt. I've been sketching some ideas on how to use the blocks in my quilt......but none of the ideas have really struck my fancy.

    Thank you Bebe for hostessing this swap. Thank you to all the ladies in my group that made me the beautiful blocks.

    I received my beautiful butterflies today. I am so pleased. They are all unique & such great variety. They are going to make a lovely quilt. I plan to use flowered fabric in between to even up the rows, etc.

    Just a short note. I accidentally kept back a few blocks from the swaps will send as soon as I get a break. Waiting to see what Barb M is going to do??????
    I will hold her blocks back for awhile and if no one recieves one from her I will send them back to you. Ladies you need to be more patient and understanding. Give me a brake!!!! I am working nights and very busy in the morning before work and trying to adjust to my new schedule.
    Who cares what we got or didn't get. Get over it things happen when we swap with others that we do not know over the internet. Not everything works out perfectly :shock: :roll: :?
    Most of you have been very understanding just a few of you finally got on my nereves. Sorry I have to be so bold and blunt and I have to express how I am feeling!!!!!! :( :cry: :roll: :?

    Barb, as I understand that you are very busy you also have to keep in mind that questions and complaints are what you take on when you decide to host a swap. You have to be willing to field all the concerns and keep people updated. You will find that when people are well-informed about what is going on there will be less friction and more understanding.

    We do really appreciate all the time and effort you put into this swap. It was very well organized and informed up until the swap deadline. After that it went down hill.

    I think everyone will really enjoy their blocks and are just anxious to be able to use them in the project they had envisioned.

    Bebe - I'm sure that I am one that got on your nerves and I'm sorry for that, but you must understand that our nerves were getting tweeked also when the rules kept getting changed.

    I too wondered about the # of blocks I received but thought I was just mistaken about the number. I made one for Barbm also & would like the block to go to her even if I don't get the one she made for me (sounds like she could use a happy moment. Sometimes life just gets in the way of doing everything we plan on doing.
    I love my blocks & am glad I joined the challenge.

    I didn't recieve my blocks yet, but, I'm not in any hurry for them. oh ,I'm anxious to see them,however I have so many projects that need to get done first.
    I made 2 extra blocks to make up for the dropouts, but that was okay. sometimes events happen in our lives that we have no controll over and happen not to turn out the way they should., but if this is the only disappoint that you are having right now, then I wish I was in your shoes.

    Bebe, Thank-you for all your hard work putting this together :D I know that when everyone gets their due blocks and make those blocks come together they will have one specail quilt.

    I haven't received mine yet, but I have several projects that are keeping me busy. I would like my blocks to go to the people I made them for, even if they couldn't make mine on time. I loved the challenge of making them and I know a deadline is something I really need.

    Thanks to all of those that held up their end of this swap. I too only recieved back 11 blocks. I have PM'd Barb with my address. Bebe I am sure that if we had been told about the missing blocks before we would not have been upset. This is copied from your original email.


    7. If you have signed up for this swap, you are committing to making blocks for others. This is a 6 month commitment. This is not fair to the others who have worked really hard at complying If at the end you make no blocks you will not receive any. I will not extend the deadline we need to keep on track. No exceptions!!!! I do not want anyone disappointed in the end. Please, Please comply!!!!!!

    Maybe next time you need to follow your own rules.




    I really love the blocks that I recieved and hope that you all liked the ones that I sent.
