Hi Roz Smile I'm in Oz too Big Grin and I've done this swap many times Smile I'm sure the host will welcome you!

Sign me up again please mandy...

and kayla...your squishey arrived and my mugrug is gorgeous, camera is charging, but I will be back after dinner with pics...your letter made me smile, so sweet and thoughtful and thank you for your extra gift, it was very sweet...
your mugrug is in progress, I'm hoping you will like it, as much as I love mine, your very clever in your ideas Smile isn't it ironic how you mentioned in your letter that you hoped for more international participants? too funny and Roz appears,perhaps you should play the lottery or make wishes more often Wink lol

I would love to swap international -- this one especially would be a memory maker.
I'm thinking of all the things that represent by area.

Please sign me up for this one. I don't know what I'm going to do just yet but sure want to be a part of the group this time. I will definately swap internationally.

P.S. to Evelyn: Of course everyone wants to live in Texas with the bluebonnets, the longhorns, Alamo, barbed wire, armadillas, cactus, mockingbirds, horned lizard, etc, etc, etc. Wink

Hmm... I've just finished a big quilt and a small project might be nice! Will think about it over the weekend.

It's funny Trish, one of the reasons I changed my board name is that I'm nearly twenty years here now and haven't felt like an "expat" for a VERY long time.

Trish love the reversible idea if I had thought of it I would have done one side for Arizona where I currently live and the reverse for Alaska where I plan to retire and love. Unfortunately I'm already half done with mine.

Love reversible!! I forgot to put a label on the sew-sew one. So I've made a label, I have WA state3 specific fabs and a map outline. Have I said too much. Will head downstairs and work on the sewing part.
I have several projects to do including stuff for the church nursery. I will be a cutting fool, and then a sewing fool.
