Benton, KY(Zone 7a)

checking in...It's so fun to see what everyone is getting!

(Barb) Manchester, NH(Zone 5a)

Hope to have mine all mailed by the end of the week.

(Pat) Kennewick, WA(Zone 5b)

I have everybody but Melody & Jean's charms in evelopes and my Sweeties says he'll take them to the Post Office today. I also have ALL of my Christmas/Winter theme's in envelopes, hoping to redeem myself for being 3 months late getting Thunder's in the mail! She gave me special permission to make a "different block" and I hope she likes what I created for her both, in Winter and the "Different" swap.

Orlando, FL(Zone 9a)

I get paid the 3rd of August and I will need to finish up then because I don't have all the colors for people. I am working on it though, sorry.

(Karen) Traverse Cit, MI(Zone 5a)

I will now have a new address after the 1st of August. D-Mail me if you need it.

Lexington Park, MD

mailing mine out today. Silo you should get mine before you move.

(Marion) Havana, FL(Zone 8b)

If I am lucky, mine will go out the later part of this week. Thank goodness things are now down to a dull roar. New cook top to be installed today so we can reassemble the kitchen. Been living around pots and pans since last Thursday.

(Barb) Manchester, NH(Zone 5a)

Bev - certainly no need to be sorry. This swap isn't due until Sept 1 and there is NO NEED TO RUSH!!! Didn't mean to "yell" but don't be so hard on yourself. This is a fun thing- not a contest....And we will all be happy whenever you are able to get yours out. I'm so happy with what you sent me, but I would have been just as happy if I didn't get it until the end.....Have fun with it my new friend.....

(Pat) Kennewick, WA(Zone 5b)

VERY true Bev, some of us rush and finish as quickly as possible, others will need the full time! I dont' have something for Melody so I have to wait until I can get to a store... life happens and the deadline is a LONG way from now!!

Benton, KY(Zone 7a)

Don't buy anything...scraps will be fine!

(Pat) Kennewick, WA(Zone 5b)

I would like to buy you something on your list, I just don't have any fruits or vegetables... nothing unique that I can find in my stash so unless you have any other bright ideas it's off to the store! LOL

Benton, KY(Zone 7a)

Holiday? Christmas, Patriotic, Easter? Birds? TOT and blenders are fine too

(Karen) Traverse Cit, MI(Zone 5a)

I will be filing a forwarding addy w/post office so should get everything just fine.
Yes Bev, please don't rush I only sent mine because I had to pack my room and don't know when I'll get it back together.

(thunder)Wildwood, FL(Zone 9a)

I got envelopes from Karen, and Jean...both fantastic. will take photos in a bit....

thanks for the additional requests Melody...I think I can now easily "fill your order" ^_^

Fleming Island, FL(Zone 9a)

I also got a squishy from Karen. Pretty blues!!!!!

Lowell, IN(Zone 5b)

I also received my charms from Karen and the're perfect. I hope that the pictures do them justice. My camera didn't feel the need to flash.

Karen also included three finished blocks that she was gifted and thought would go well with my Vintage quilt. I am honored and humbled by her generosity and that of all of you. These are phenominal. Again, the pictures don't do them justice.

WOWSERS nice charms, very nice blocks any idea the name of the 1st and 3rd ???

the 2nd must be at least partially paper pieced??!!! gorgeous too, but I really hate to do PP....oh I can certainly see where it can be a great thing, but I just do not at all like the process....

Lowell, IN(Zone 5b)

Will need to defer that question to Karen.

(Karen) Traverse Cit, MI(Zone 5a)

Sorry not my work, but I thought the fabrics would fit Stu's civil war prints perfectly.

(Pat) Kennewick, WA(Zone 5b)

WOW Stu, SCORE!!! LOL... how wonderful that Karen had something special to share with you.

(thunder)Wildwood, FL(Zone 9a)

SCORE INDEED !!

Orlando, FL(Zone 9a)

Thanks everyone. =)

Lexington Park, MD

Ok I mailed out my charms yesterday .
Now sit back and relax and come up with an idea for the charms I have received.
Thinking........................

Orlando, FL(Zone 9a)

I'm taking each set of charms, embroidering the persons name on them, and maybe a city or something and then making them into a nine block friendship quilt for myself. This way I can remember my first swap. =)

Fleming Island, FL(Zone 9a)

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, she wants to remember us!!!!!

Lexington Park, MD

What a great idea Bev. And such a very nice way to remember your DG friends and your first swap.

Orlando, FL(Zone 9a)

Yep, I thought it was a good idea too, hee hee. Of course, when will the quilt actually be done? lol, well, that's another story, but hey it's the idea behind that thought that matter.

(Marion) Havana, FL(Zone 8b)

Bev, love the idea but better still, I love the rest of the statement: " lol, well, that's another story, but hey it's the idea behind that thought that matter. "

Orlando, FL(Zone 9a)

Thanks to Karen, very nice selection. It was like Christmas in July. =)
