I love that one too.

I only have about 1/2 a yard of it, but I just saw a similar one being stocked at Hancock Fabrics, and I may have to go buy a couple of yards just to put in my stash.

Lovely squares so far -I love the variety!

(Hopefully people won't be too disappointed that I don't have 40-60 different fabrics to make swatches from...  Embarrassed But I still have a couple days yet, so who knows what I may find if I really dig into the closets!)

Don't worry mine aren't all different either. I started out with the intention of them all being different but then I went and added some from my already cut squares stash so I'm fairly certain that almost everyone got duplicates Undecided .

Here are my beauties....

From Miss_Kassandra (I got a Pooh-bear!)


And from Elvissatx (I got my cherries! And my favourite is second down and third across)


The fabric its on (that I am currently ironing) is some sheeting I picked up for A$4m in Spotlight. At 2.5m wide that is the cheapest cotton lining fabric I have ever bought..... You cannot buy fabric in England that cheap!

I received from miss_kassandra over the weekend too. The piggies are my favorites but I also love those little monkeys peeking out at me. They're so cute!

I started sewing some of my squares up, I can't believe how many I have cut from my own stash. I barely made a dent in it last night.

PlumCrafty, I did some digging around and couldn't find a source for that fabric anywhere.  The store where I bought it is all sold out.  Waaah!  I love it and wish I had more too!

And here are the squares I got from Miss_Kassandra:



I particularly love the monkeys!!!

This is getting fun and exciting!!!

Ugh, I totally messed up sending my squares, y'all.

I entrusted my husband with mailing the squares while I was teaching, and when I got home, I was all, "Hey, where are the DC#s?"

And he's all, "Dude, that was crazy expensive. I totally did not do that DC crap."

And I'm all, "NOOOOOOO!!!!!!"

I don't even know what to say--we'd have to begin with a Type-A woman who insists on following the rules falling in love with a video gamer artist guy who wouldn't know a rule if it hit him on the butt, and continue from there.

Just let me know if you don't get my squares in a reasonable amount of time, and I'll send you another batch that I mail myself on the way home from school, because my man doesn't follow directions well.

Darn those husbands!   Wink

If any of your packages don't arrive, you can easily send a new one and it'll all be cool.

And I wanted to thank everyone who has already let me know what they've received.  The hardest part of this swap is the record keeping and you are making it easy.

If you've received packages that you haven't told me about, please let me know, okay?

Thanks!

I've received from mlheran and mlookyloo1 now too.

One of my big weekend projects is to get pictures posted, because I've fallen behind in that.

So far, everything is great.

Woohoo!  I have more pictures to post!

The first picture from left to right are from Lady4Feet, mlookyloo1, and mrs.zeddies.  I love the puzzle pieces from lady4feet, the gorgeous blues and purples from mlookyloo1 and the lavender print from mrs. zeddies the most.



The second picture is from Shana82 on the left and mlheran on the right.  Shana82, I'm loving all of those big bold prints.  And I've got some of that light blue Asian print in my stash--I hoard it like nobody's business.  I just saw another bolt at the fabric store, so I may have to go buy a few more yards to actually use.  mlheran, I'm loving your elegant little prints so much!



And finally, PlumCrafty went plumcrazy and oversent.



I already know I like her taste in fabric, but was very amused to find that we both have some of the blue United States fabric in our stashes.  I actually almost sent her a few yards a while back and then didn't, because I wasn't sure if someone not in the US would find it as funny as I do.

This has been such fun!!!  Thank you all!!!

I'll be PMing when I get home tonight, but I received a stack of envelopes over the weekend so now have nine of eleven Grin (I counted). I haven't opened yet (very restrained of me) because I want to take photos when I do and my camera is missing (but not the memory card...weird Huh).

Unfortunately I have another swap that is due tomorrow and have been a little bit of a headless chook finishing of for that. Roll Eyes And I want to be able to fully enjoy gorging myself on the squares when I do open them... Wink  But I will PM tonight who's arrived and thank you all in advance! Grin

Okay--

Here's where we stand as of this minute

People who have had all their squares received (with the exception of SaphireFaerie, who I'll address in a minute) will have feedback done tonight.  Those folks are:  PlumCrafty, EKO, Miss_Kassandra, mlookyloo1, mrs.zeddies and mlheran.

Pumpkinbear will get feedback as soon as I hear from EKO that she has received.

Shana82 will get feedback as soon as I hear from EKO and mlheran that they have received.

lady4feet will get feedback as soon as I hear from EKO and Miss_kassandra that they have received.

OhThat will get feedback as soon as I hear from PlumCrafty, EKO, Miss_Kassandra, and mlheran that they have received.

EKO, mlheran, Miss_Kassandra and PlumCrafty, please check what you have already received and make sure that I haven't missed something (It's not unlikely at this point!).  Otherwise, please continue to do the same stellar job that you've been doing on keeping me posted.

As to SaphireFaerie-- she hasn't been online since 3/28, but I've told her that if her squares haven't been mailed by Friday, I'll have to give her temporary negative feedback.  Then she'll have until 4/10 to send before I get an angel to send us each a package of squares.  But I'm not going to hold anyone's feedback because we haven't heard from her.

Please keep posting pictures!  (I know that I owe a couple too.  Mea culpa!!!)

That's the latest and greatest.  Thanks everyone!!!

ETA- Feedback is posted.  Please check and make sure you have positive feedback if I've said I'm going to give it to you.  Gracias!

Here are all the fabulous squares I've received lately!

From EKO... (that money print is hilarious!)


From elvisstax... (love the rick-rack-esque square!)


From lady4feet... (I'm torn between the red, white & blue floral and the square with the tiny chick!)


From Mlookyloo1... (holy cow, I think these are all unique!)


From Mrs.Zeddies... (that pale purple circle print is so wonderfully retro!)


From Oh That... (I think I'm hooked on the delicate black & white floral!)


From pumpkinbear... (that square of the Joker cracked me up!)



*whew* That was a lot of squares!!  Grin

This means so far I've received from everyone except Shana82 and SaphireFaerie -but I'm stopping by the post office today so we'll see!

Okay, here are the long awaiting pictures. I hope I matched up names to pics correctly but I lost the bit of paper with the names on it that I wrote down as I took them. As my colleague would say, I have baby-brain without the being pregnant bit. Roll Eyes

So here goes OhThat (L) and mlookyloo1 (R)

Loving the chook fabric (3D, 3A) and the purple flowers (2D, 3A)

Shana82 (L), Lady4Feet (M) and mrs.zeddies (R)

Faves: baseball (7D, 4A), jigsaw (5D, 2A) and the blue paisley

pumpkinbear (L), mlheran (M) and EKO (R)...soz this image is a bit rubbish

Faves: text (3D, 1A), house (1D, 2A) and the money (1D, 1A)

They are all so great, thanks very much! Grin
