Petit Design Co. 10 years ago
just wondering how long will it take to get a confirmation email to let you know you are in? I keep thinking maybe my email went to junk mail! I've been drooling over the past pictures and waiting anxiously for over a month for the new round!
Lynn Carson Harris PRO 10 years ago
I'm with Tine. It is hard. I don't want to be in over my head. I have a son graduating High School this spring. Ack. Too much, too much. But, I want to play.

I will step away from the computer and see what I can get done in the sewing room to catch up and then return...
chickenfoot Posted 10 years ago. Edited by chickenfoot (moderator) 10 years ago
i opened a new email just for this swap, and that is the only email i will get. i dont get anything else sent there, so there should be no problem with emails going lost. i hope!
welcome everyone!!!
oh, and tine and eggmoney, you HAVE to do it!!!

THANK YOU to all past swap parents & all swap parents in this round!!!!

Everyone who is participating is lucky to have you and I never would have been able to get through the last round without you! :)

LittleWhimsies Sews 10 years ago
Already signed up! And my blog is child-friendly ;D
Petit Design Co. 10 years ago
oh -lol, yes my blog is g-rated too!
The Bella Modiste 10 years ago
I'm confused by the "fun" language bit too....
My blog and photostream are both clean though.
chickenfoot 10 years ago
there are some bloggers that tend to swear like, oh well heck i will say it, sailors. i am not saying there is anything wrong with this, its just some members have family read the other persons blog to see the quilt they made.
chickenfoot 10 years ago
we are doing good today, we are at 40 members so far.
if you have emailed me with your info and havent gotten an email back yet, please email again
thanks, and thank you so much tanaya, you are the bestest swap mama evar!
feeble rainstorm [deleted] 10 years ago
not to be a complete pain in the butt (is that a fun word?), but can you post a list of flickr names who are participating? maybe in a separate thread or something?

thank you

is there going to be a theme??
tlhcrawford 10 years ago
There really isn't a theme per say....you scope out your partner's favorites and blog to get a feel for their colors and styles. Everyone when signing up has a chance to indicate favorite colors/styles OR quilter's choice,meaning the person making the quilt decides.
chickenfoot Posted 10 years ago. Edited by chickenfoot (moderator) 10 years ago
someone mentioned to me in their email they would like to know whether or not their quilt is going to be used by a child or hung up,so that might be good to add to your email
sarah i will try to put a list of flickr names in a thread, but it wont be until after the matchups go out
we are at 54 sign ups as of 11:30 central time
i work tomorrow, so i wont be able to get to the emails until dinner time, so dont panic if you dont hear from me right away

its 12:30 central time here, and we are at 93 swap bebes
i will be checking in the am before i take off for the day, but unfortunately i will most likely be without internet until sat.
