I have signed up for the 4-patch swap on the www.quiltvilleswap.com on Yahoo groups.
I have 10 sets of ten blocks finished. All using Downton Abbey fabrics.
The swap hostess wants all the blocks pinned and added to a larger baggie.
Here are my sets.
I am thinking this will be very difficult for her to sort and no way for the swappers to ID their blocks.
Here is my idea: presort my ten blocks into unique sets before mailing. That way my name is in the package and the sorting is done for the hostess.
I am only trying to help and not to interfere with her hostessing.
And I am supporting the fight against breast cancer. I bought this lovely pink add a quarter ruler. I use this for paper piecing. Love the ruler. And I love pink!!
Today is a perfect day for sewing. 40 mph winds...light snow...-2 for the low tonight!
I am making barbeque spareribs, our garden green beans and baked potatoes.
Physically I am getting better day by day. Turns out I have microscopic colitis.
After a month of not being able to leave the house for "leaking" poop. I have had a colonoscopy with good results. But the month of no food getting absorbed has cost me 17#'s, very low potassium level (2.8) and a thyroid condition. I was not able to carry all the packages for the swaps because lifting anything caused leakage. Getting old sure sucks.
But I love my new doctor. She is "Indian" with long brown hair and a lovely accent. I have never had a woman doctor. I like her quiet but firm manner. I am thinking of making her a brown shawl with size 10 crochet thread. She would look lovely in it...
Happy Valentines' Day
