I love new t-shirts! All different kinds and all different colors. Thats the one souviner that I will always buy. Would any one be interested in a swap of a newly purchased t-shirt ? They can be mailed cheaply as well. I think $20 would be a great price point including shipping. What do you think? We would have to state size but everything else would be up to your buddy.

I will take names till Mon May the 7th. Divie up the names and get them out to you ladies by the 10th. Shirts should be recieved by the 31st of May. How does that sound?

Hey Cathy, Count me in. You're off to a fantastic start and have already shown us what a fine hostess you are! Living in the Historic rolling hills of Virginia, our County is famous for being the "Moonshine Capital of the World". We also have a local shop that still does custom tied-dyed T-shirts.

No Navy Blue or Black or White for me please. Not trying to be picky but dark colors are too hot in Summer and I'm a Pigpin when I wear White.

Size XL in any light shades of Pink, Green or Yellow. Ya never know when I'll need a new nighty.

Hi everybody! I received my tshirt yesterday.. it came from our hostess herself :) And I have to admit that I cried when I saw it.. it's a memorial shirt for the miners who died in the WVA mines last month. Such a horrible thing for all the families and friends of those brave men.
It's a gray shirt and the front has just a round circle up on the left side with .. well, I'll post a pic of it, cause my description wouldn't explain well enough. The back of the shirt is the more "decorated" part..

Thank you Cathy..I will wear it with pride..it is a very special shirt.

Here's the front first..I did a very close up pic of the circle..

Nothing a'tall wrong with dropping hints, Elfie. Chris's tab for the Round-Up, so far, is two margueritas in exchange for the Houseplants I've reserved for her. Thought I might be able to bribe her with a T-shirt and wipe her slate clean. Mum's the word though...shhh, don't t tell her. Keep working on a ride, Kris! It won't be the same without you.

Long weekend ahead, sunshine called for and working on my t-shirt this early morning...thought I'd best get at it seeing as I got the most wonderful box of goodies from Jean..

Jean, omg, you were far too generous...love everything in my box, infact going to wear one of the t-shirts today..

When I first opened the box I though..oooh my red/white/blue swap..the pretty pink t-shirt brought thoughts of patriotism and yet it wasn't a flag but it just striked me that way...

Such pretties...

I love the unusual...thank you for the t-shirt from Florida..shrimp fishing decor...

Soooo not only did I get 2 lovely t-shirts from Jean but knowing my love of crafting and sewing and I'll just bet knowing I joined the Christmas block exchange didn't she include the most beautiful pieces of Christmas material...absolutely love them..

I've patterns picked for several of the quilt blocks that I'm sure these will be perfect for..was in the Quilt and Knit shop the other day and they said they'd not get their Christmas print materials in for yet anothe 2 or 3 months so talk about excited when I saw what was in my box...

Ask me if I'm happy..yep .. jumping up and down..

A very very big thank you to you Jean..it's much appreciated...
and...they do fit! lol

You just got to love those DG friends...talk about special people~

Betty- So glad the box arrived & the shirts fit!!!! I know you often have to come "south" to shop for fabric so thought I'd save you a trip!!! Besides, I need to start thinning my stash.

I'm in Williamsburg, VA this weekend. Not sure what all we are going to do. When I lived down here (a few years ago) you could do a lot in the historic areas for free. Now, they have built nice Visitor Centers, and charge $$$ just to "look". But, the Pottery is still "Free" so I do believe we will head in that direction.

Perhaps I'll find a t-shirt waiting for me when I get back home.

Checked the tracking, lordy/lordy, mailed from Barrie on Thursday morning before 9am, just checked, last posting was the 28th in Mississauga and zilch..no other listing..not a fan of tracking because it's not accurate..in my RWB it made no other notation other than when it arrived in USA...so dear swap buddy, who knows???? Maybe a border custom agent needed something clean to wear and saw 't-shirt' on the package... hope the color matched his eyes...

My cousin lives in Lafayette, Ind. Can't remember exactly how far it is.

In our little village of 400, we have a 4th of July parade that has been going on for over 100 years. There was a small amusement park here, Chippewa Lake Park, that was very involved in that, and many of us have fond memories of the rides, ballroom and concerts. Our village was originally vacation cottages from the early 1900's on. Over 7,000. people come to our parade annnually, which is sponsored by our Lions Club.

It's the kind of parade some of us remember when we were kids. High school bands, kids on bikes, Shriner's on mo-peds, local garden clubs, w/ floats,etc. , followed by a free show by our water-ski team. We are still pretty old-fashioned down here, and also have a great Labor Day village dance on the beach!

Beautiful lake, and friendly people. Returned here after 30 years in Calif. and can truly say you can go home again!

Glad you liked the shirt-c'mon by :)

It is! And the best thing is that many of us are very different in life situations, income, stability or lack of, but people totally pull together when someone is hurting.

My 16 year old put it best, when he moved here from growing up in Calif., "Mom, in Chippewa Lake people still say hi and talk to you even if they don't agree with you!"

(I'm the zoning admin. so he's seen strong opinions presented...) Respect for other's views, and really listening, even when regulations can't be modified, often taken the sting out of unpopulalar decisions. When you're this small you gotta work together when the lights go out!

We're not perfect but we'll sure say hi, and share what we have!

Winter is the best time to think of such projects, right now it's gardening tme and outdoor activities..is though a good time to put your thoughts together on how you would do it so you can collect necessary supplies...

Sounds as though you've been stationed many places, how wonderful it would be to have a memory quilt and each time you look at a block to relive the good times of where they were obtained..

Ret_Sgt_Yates, your veggie garden is outstanding. I can't imagine traveling like you and your family have and on Flag Day today, thank you so much for your service to our Country! Your t-shirt collection sounds extensive and the idea of making a quilt out of them just might be the ticket. I'm game for another t-shirt swap anytime Catbirdsue is.

Oh, please watch next May and join us for the Red, White, and Blue exchange. I think you'd especially enjoy that one:

Although the rest of me isn't, LOL , I do have tiny wrists. I usually can't stand bracelets cuz they fall over my hands but this one is just the right size.

What a blessing all of you are. We are in recovery mode here, and my Dad went back home-to his place with his part-time caregiver two days ago, and seems to be doing well. Thanks for the good thoughts... ;)
