Susie:

Barbara--Lovely fabric choice!  I also like the coordinating cases.  I am one of those that has so many pillows on my bed that my cases never seem to match.  So, I just decided that I was going to plan on them not matching.  More fun that way, too!

I have my Chirstmas ones done, and the other set is started.  I ran out of bobbin, and had to stop in the middle of a case for my daughter.  I have 4 plus her guitar one that need to be finished up.  Shouldn't take long...once I get my bobbins wound again.  Darn things like to run out without warning at the worst possible time.

Susie, I also have lots of pillows on the bed and can never get them all to match.  My solution is to buy lots and lots of coordinating pillowcases... Be sure they're always 100% cotton... And, when a few go missing or get stained, turn the rest of that set into scrap fabric for scrap quilts and buy more!  lol.  I like your solution too though.  I might have to try that with some Christmas cases when the holiday season rolls around.  :)

Vynnp,

I will look when I get home to see if you were in both swaps and to whom they were to go to and get back with you.

 

ALSO EVERYONE:

Please be respectful of each other when mailing your package, just make a shout out for everyone to be looking for a package.  When you get a package, please be kind and let that person know if you received them or not.  We do not like anything lost in the mail. 

I always insure my package.  That is just me.  The insurance is hardly anything, but it is worth everything knowing if I have to redo something I will  not be out of that money again. 

Barbara, I will let you know if I get anything.  I just came in late last night and am at work today.  If I get it in the mail, I will definitely give a shout out to you with a huge smile, I am sure.  Can't wait to get home now.  LOL

My PC's  went out in todays mail and I let Melissa know they are on their way!   I won't share a pix just yet so she has a chance to be surprised.   Fun swap! I really enjoyed picking out the fabrics.  Looking forward to when mine arrive in my mailbox.  Thanks Karen for hosting.

Hello fellow swappers, My PC sets (1 & 2)  are ready to ship out on Monday the 15th. they are headed NORTH.. lol... of course that is not giving anything away except to say they aren't arriving on Karen's doorstep, here in our state.. I'll give a shout out when I have my confirmation date.. have a wonderful weekend

Ladies I too have multiple pillows on my bed as I had stated before, I love using the Kona solids and matching up the extra 4 cases needed. It keeps my bed still looking organized, sometimes.
