Skatergirl, now you need to do Lilo so Stitch isn't lonely.  Cheesy

My partner finally sent all her crafted notecards, so I got mine this morning. Yeah! She said she tried to use a different style for each of her partners (She had 5 counting me, so we'll see how she did when the others arrive in Canada, Texas, and Oregon). She said she's been on a scalloped lace and flowers kick, so that's the style she used on most of mine.

What a generous partner to include the basket, too. Very helpful.

Post office says my notecards should arrive tomorrow . . . something about they couldn't deliver until the cards for the real swap had been sent to my partners.  Huh

As Suereal suggests: Take lots of pictures! At most shows it's okay to take photos of the display quilts, but if there are vendor booths it would be a good idea to ask permission before snapping away. Usually the quilts in those booths are patterns or kits that they're selling, so they don't always appreciate photos unless you've bought their product.

Another suggestion is to look at everything before you buy. It's easy to binge buy when you see so many awesome goodies. But it's painful when you get to the end, find that one absolutely perfect item, and you've already blown your budget. I don't think I've ever managed to stay totally within my quilt budget, but I AM getting much better. Grin

Above all, enjoy, and give yourself plenty of time just to relax and absorb the beauty and artistry.

Nearly done with my last set, so hope to send everything tomorrow. Otherwise I won't be able to send until Monday.

Haven't finished looking through your link, Lindy, but just had to stop and laugh when I saw you had pinned the Charlie Brown ornaments I made for Sarahelise last year. Even if we don't have each other for partners, I may have to drop a set in the mail to you closer to Xmas. I love sending things to good homes and yours is one of the best!

Pine-Sol is a strong, pine-scented cleaner, so any similar brand ought to work. Similar products with different names wouldn't be bad. What I hate are products with the same name, but totally different formulas. Learned that the hard way when I bought a Sprite in Rome. I was so thirsty that day, but I took one swallow and almost split it out. Nothing like our US version. Undecided

Chirel, thanks for the links. Very pretty flowers. Good luck with the paper production. Never thought about making it to sell although I've certain bought it before. Duh! Boot to the head!

AIMR, yes, including some handmade papers as extras would be nice for all of us papercrafters, but I think it would be even more awesome if there were a swap. Maybe after the holidays since everything seems to be picking up right now.

If you don't have Febreeze, check for Pine-Sol (the type you can use to clean your floors). Your fiber items will smell like pine when they come from the washer, but the smell goes away by the time they come from the dryer. It may take two washings to eliminate all the smoke smell. When my sil's house burnt, this is what the insurance company suggested for the things that survived. Worked like a charm.

We're not strangers to wild fires where I live so I understand how frustrating and frightening they can be, but as Sloth said, it's amazing how quickly new growth occurs and how beautiful it can be. I understand the same can be true of areas hit by volcanos although I have no personal experience with that. Just hope all your family and friends stay safe.

Nice job on the bean bag pillow cover, Kookaloo! How kind of you to rescue the little boy's Thomas the Train Engine's pillow. Bet he'll love you forever! Or at least until he grows up and and puts Thomas aside.  Wink

Fantastic job matching the plaid fabric on your dh's pajama pants. I've seen a lot of commercially produced clothing items that weren't nearly as well done. Think you need to join our quilt block swap since you're that good!  Grin

I am being peer pressured by two thugs, lindy and bunny1kenobi, to join this swap! Grin

I have never done such a HUGE swap before, but I know I can make at least 12 things...

I printed out the questionnaire and will start pinning stuff I would love to get as gifts from all the past galleries...wow....there were pages and pages of fabulous gifts!!!

Save me a space! Grin

Only reason I didn't apply pressure too was because they seemed to be doing such a fine job without me!  Grin

Sent in my form during the wee hours of the morning and I'm already on the list. Wow! That's really being on top of things. But didn't think I'd ever get that form finished. Think it took longer than the Secret Santa form last year, but it should give our partners a great list of ideas.
