Just checking in. I finished all of the blocks and the package is ready to go. Unfortunately, I overslept on Saturday and didn't get to the PO before it closed at 11am. I will put the package in the mail first thing on Monday, and since I'll be sending it Priority, it should be there by Wednesday with no problem. BTW, Priority Mail now includes the tracking number in the cost of the package.

Checking in: I am machine-stitching. I made a variety of colors, and I made extras. I took pictures of some of them before I started stitching. If you see something that doesn't blend with the others, let me know and I will keep them for myself.

I still plan to mail on Monday.

Mine are done. I am planning to put in the morning mail - priority.

Did you send a PM with your address? Do you have the same address as in the booklet from COF NC?

Yes, the same address. If you need me to send it in a pm just let me know. If you have the booklet from COF 2011, then you have my correct address.

I have the booklet, thanks for confirming.

I am going to go print a priority mail label now!


P.S. I keep meaning to tell you that when you called Connie in CO about a month ago, but she couldn't talk because she had company. I was the company!!! I didn't know she was talking to you or I would have gotten on the phone too to say hello! What a small world!

Cathy... Did you get to mail when you asked for my address?

Kay-lin... Your blocks are here and you have outdone yourself with putting a smile on my face with these gifts. I will use them in my crazy quilting. I have been wanting to try beading something off of a block then add it to the block and these patterns will be perfect for that. Thank you so much!

Lets have another roll call to see where everyone is with their blocks...

Trish... Your gorgeous butterflies just flew in the house! Love that black and red!

You didn't send any postage so I guess you want me to Paypal invoice you once I mail?

I will get these sorted this weekend and in the mail next week. Hubbys truck is tore up so he is having to pull the plant wagon with mine so it might not be Monday when I get to go but definitely by Wednesday.

His truck is being towed to the shop and being worked on Monday. I told our mechanic we had to have it back by Tuesday night because I have to go pick up Ely at the airport on Wednesday. So if it takes him till then, I will mail on Wednesday when I go get Ely.

I will post when they are enroute with tracking numbers.

So happy they made it Q.
Thanks Q. I really liked how they turned out too, and it was nice making them as it reminded me of a special time with DH.
Sorry about the postage, I did forget, but have no more American money on hand, and Australian money would get you laughed at if you took it to the PO...so yes PayPal please Smile I'm just as happy as a pig in mud that they made it!!!!

I'm actually a little concerned about quiltaholic. She is always such a great hostess and very good about keeping swappers informed. The last post I've seen from her was on Tuesday.

I'm not really concerned ladies, she stated above about mailing this past Wednesday, before picking up Ely, so I am assuming she is enjoying her company, and she may not have had time to swap, or they may be fluttering home as we type.

Thanks for the reminder about ELY. I'm anxious to see all the butterflies but will not have time to work on them for a while so that is not a problem at all.

Hi ladies... Sorry to leave you hanging for a few days but we got home a little while ago from quilt symposium. We were not told that there would be internet access so I did not take my laptop so I could not communicate with anyone.

The swappers who have swapped with me many times already know this so this is for those of you who this may be your first swap with me..

If I have plans coming up I always set my due dates around those dates, giving me time to sort, package, and run to the post office before the dates of my plans get too close.

The due date that I had for the blocks gave me time to get these took care of by the Friday and/or Saturday after the due date, a few days before Ely's arrival and giving me a few days to get everything I needed to have ready to go to symposium gathered up and packed. With some of the packages coming in late, I did not have the time to get them sorted, packaged, and run to the post office with all of the other things I had to do to get ready to go out of town.

I am sorry that you have had to wait a few extra days. Ely goes to the airport tomorrow evening at 4:15 and I will start getting these ready for the post office tomorrow night and finish up on Tuesday. If I finish in time before the post office closes, I will mail that afternoon... if not, I will mail on Wednesday.

Thank you for your patience. Smile

Looking forward to getting my blocks. I have a project in mind for them and I have border fabric standing by. As for the mailing concerns, when I read Q's post prior to Memorial Day, I read it that she would not be able to get the blocks into the mail until this past Wednesday (yesterday) to begin with. Since she is close to that date in mailing them, I fail to see what the big deal or concern is of some of the ladies. Thanks Q, for hosting this swap and sorry for any hassles that you may have received along the way.

Thanks so much Linda. Smile

I am about to shower now and head out to town so your tracking numbers will be up in about dinnertime. Got to go for a doctors appt and for groceries later. Going by the post office beforehand.

Wasn't no sense in going to town 2 days in a row. K*ll 2 birds with one stone so to speak. They will definitely be worth the few extra days wait. Smile

I have taken a photo of each persons blocks.. Those that had several different fabrics, have a collage and all of the blocks are not showing..

There will be one block showing of those who sent in all of the same fabrics in their butterflies...

These are the ones I made...
