Not to worry Pat, I am soo looking forward to getting my batik layers back, I am prepared to hang in there! Besides, if I can get mine in the mail Monday, then you mail the following Monday, it will take care of the month of February for surprises in the mail! and I like those kind of surprises in the mail ...

DH is preparing for his first 5K run this morning in almost a year. He damaged his achilles tendon last May and hasn't been able to compete or run much since. Then tomorrow, before the Super Bowl, we will go to his office and lay out the neutrals.    Now, I do promise to be neat and not too untiedy. But then, that would take all the fun out of fondling all those layers

I'm sorry to say, but it is suppose to be 66F today and higher tomorrow. Lots of sun. Everyone please take care in all the snow and rains out there.

Ladies,

You are so generous! Thank you. I found some lovely surprises as I laid out the layers this morning.

All layers have been swapped, counted twice, packaged and taped for mailing tomorrow after work. I get off at 3:00 and will head to the post office. Most all are going priority mail, so you should receive them by the end of the week.

I do apologize to a few of you. There will be some duplicate fabrics due to the number of layers sent. You did not get your fabrics back though!

Thank you all  for such a wonderfully fun experience. Please let me know when your packages arrive. 

Annette

Annette-
I got a package on my front porch when I got home from work today.
At first I thought it might be my Secret Santa gift, then my Secret Valentine gift.
But then I noticed that it was MY handwriting on the envelope, and I new that it was one of the swaps.

I tok a quick peek at the fabrics and they look really great!! Can't wait to figure out what to do with them.
Thanks so much for all your efforts with this swap!!

I am sewwwwww happy today!

Annette ... my layer cakes arrived!

All the fabrics are beautiful. Thank you to everyone who swapped!    I particularly like the creamy seashells ... and the toiles ... and the paisleys ... ah ... and the florals ... and the vines ... the dots ... the swirls ... oh, I just love them all ... ... oh, and the batik!! ... wish I could find that one locally ... not a great selection of neutral batiks near me ... I have been looking for a background fabric to go with my jewel batik layers and am having a tough time finding one so nice! 

I still have my fabrics from the Americana swap from last year and I am going to use many of these scrappy neutrals in a quilt together ... a project I am looking forward to making this summer I hope.

Annette ... you are such a great hostess ... and thanks to Dusty for his help ... thank you for all the work you have done on this swap ...

 Pat

YEAH! my creamy neutrals were waiting in my mailbox today! I've leafed through them and love them all! I don"t have a specific plan for these at this point, so I guess they'll join the other swap packets. the 30's sets.... the beachy sets.... the flower sets.... the patriotic sets..... and the batik sets when they get here..... at least I can proudly say that i've used the black and white sets....

Annette - thank you so much for hostessing this swap..... we appreciate all the work it takes to make it run smoothly.

I'm so glad everyone is liking the neutrals. It was a fun swap to do. I still haven't heard from Laura, Sherry or Lynn whether their packages arrived.  I sure hope they did!

I've been going through patterns and trying to decide how to best use these beauties. I'm open to suggestions.

Hi, Annette,

My squishy package arrived yesterday and I've already put some of the yummy fabrics to use for Miss Cindy's row robin.  

Thank you so much for handling the swap.  You rock!

Have a great weekend,  Laura

I received a PM from Lynn and her layers arrived last Wednesday. All layers are home and accounted for, so to speak. Yeah!

Thank you Pat for being a wonderful Co-Hostess and Jess for providing the Q&N so we can "play".

Enjoy the layer cakes and let us know how you used yours.

Annette
