You will all probably get a laugh out of this, but last night I went thru all the strings from the last swap and pulled out what I could for the string block exchange I am now in. That was the first I had gone thru them other than to open the box when it arrived... Chris

Bright bricks fabrics are just waiting for me to cut them. I always prewash fabrics as they come in the house, so all I had to do was choose them. They are sitting on the table waiting to be ironed- hopefully over the weekend so they'll quit glaring at me. I sorted the last bright brick swap fabrics by color so I can be sure I don't duplicate any. Not sure I have any good ship in a bottle fabric, but I'll look.

Longjohn, unsure what you mean by the "ship in the bottle"?

RN, I'm always up for 30's fabrics. Lisa's plan for making Bricks and Stepping Stones with 30's repros is very tempting!

Terrimae, your package arrived today and will be opened and posted tomorrow.

Oops- i was thinking of an I Spy swap where someone was looking for ship fabrics in addition to that swap. Sorry for the confusion!

Okay, as novelty prints are not allowed for the swap (see guidelines).

I can see where all the different swaps it's hard to keep track.

Well "duh" did not even think about you and 30's when I wrote that. Never liked 30's but they are growing on me.

I have to admit they are growing on me as well...I have a large bin of quite an assortment I've been gathering....at one point I probably had a project in mind and then "forgot"!! Forgot is my middle name now. Smile

I have more brights in the machine as I type this. I had a stack set aside and I can't find where I put them and had to pull more, sheesh!! I have got to get more organized down there.

Apparently your fabrics are playing "hide and go seek" with you, Linda! Big Grin Perhaps I could come over and find them for you?

Finally got the package mailed today. Should be there Monday according to the receipt. Priority was only 5 cents more than their new way which used to be called parcel post, so it went that way... Chris
