I had a great time this round as in all of the previous rounds. 
   However, I think I am going to have to bow out of any future rounds just because of shipping costs.  The DCs that are now required will add an extra 16.50 to shipping costs and that is if I am only in one group.  It's just too much for me unfortunately.  I understand why it was made necessary but I think I will have to stick with swaps that don't have 22 packages to send.  I will follow along with everyone's progress in the threads though!  Smiley

oh ya i totally forgot about that. that is a extra bit of money when things are tight.

I'm sending my last blocks as soon as the PO opens.  As to round 5 I love this swap but I don't think I'll be doing another round at least for a while.  If there is a round 6 or 7 I'd LOVE to do it but I need to get a hold on my swap addiction first!

I'm going to try to ship out most of my blocks today and the rest on thursday. I had a bad RA flare-up last week, thought it was gone, and then ended up not being able to work again yesterday or today. I should just be a little late Sad

I am sad (and rather frustrated and embarrassed) to report that I will be sending late.  My three year old daughter, who just had her birthday and received a few packages in the mail from relatives, got into my mail bag and opened several (ok most) of my outgoing swap packages this morning while I was helping my son with his "morning grooming" in the bathroom.  I caught her as we were on our way out the door to work/preschool.  "I open presents, Mumma!" was all she said.  I managed to keep my cool until it was just me in the car on my way to work...  So now I have to sort out the packages, go buy more envelopes, readdress and package them, and hopefully get to the PO by the end of the week (we have baseball, doctors appts, and my son's birthday party to plan also going on this week).  Now that you've all had a good chuckle... (it's ok, it really is kinda funny if you think about it... she's very sweet)  I'm really sorry about the delay and will be sending ASAP!

All of my packages went out today!  It was almost thirty dollars (for two groups) but I am just happy to have everything finished and sent!  Hopefully they will arrive quickly and safely.Smiley

I know it's Thursday but I forgot to update Monday. Well, there actually isn't really anything to update but I want to stick to the rules even if it's a few days late.

Monday Update:

I'm waiting for 5 blocks (3 craftsters) but 2 I know are on their way (1boy1girl1kitty) but I have no clue of the status of the other 3 blocks (southern flower, eocrafter).

I assume that all my blocks have been received. I sent out the last batch on 1/24 but the spreadsheet for group 3 isn't updated.
