Chris,
It has been raining here all week. Today it was pouring this morning and now it is humid and sunny. I had several interruptions while I was on the computer this morning and you can see where it posted my updated list several times. I just wanted to personally thank you. Thanks!

Please forgive my tardiness this month. RN55 and Amiko - yours went out today. Shequilts and bluesnail - yours will go out Friday.
It's been a world of crazy here for the last 3 weeks (situation w/ MIL), and I am trying very hard to catch up with normal life now that all the out-of -towners have finally left. Thank you for understanding.

July birthday' s packages went out today! Do you know that the flatter you make the package so it fits through the slot it is only 66 cents, if it can not fit through the slot it jumps to 2$? Amazing what you learn when you go to the PO!

Mine went out today, finally. Life has been crazy in this house. My PO guy will work with the envelope and squish it thru it at all possible. However, sometimes it takes one a month to get where it is going, what's up with that? Jackie

Lois, My mistake. It was returned yesterday. I put your old address on it. I forgot! sorry. I will remail it on Monday. It is postmarked the 1st and took until yesterday for them to return it. Must be the ponies were tired. I will change your address in my address book too.

Well, Carolyn, and aren't you glad you put your return address on the envelope? LOL You are very lucky it did get back to you. I've sent several chunks of fabric which never made it to the recipient...nor did I ever get it back even though it had a return address and was totally taped shut. I just figured someone in PO land was collecting FQ's!

I'll let you know when it gets here. Thanks.
