Ladies, ladies, ladies, I have a sewing room full of the most beautiful fall fabric you have ever seen!  I must say that this group of ladies has excellent taste when it comes to choosing fabrics.  The biggest problem I have in hosting these swaps is getting all of this lovely fabric in and then having to let it go back out again!

Last fat quarter swap I hosted some had a problem with the dimensions of a fat quarter, happy to say that in this swap, everyone was right on the money.

We did have one hiccup, which was really no big deal at all.  One person sent 18 fats instead of 24.  I sent that person back a set of 18 fats and moved other fabric around so that the rest got 24.  So, some of you have duplicate fabric in your bag but as lovely as the fabric is, I didn't think you would mind!  I certainly didn't.

This has been a fun swap to host, you ladies are all so wonderful.  Thank you for the little gifts for me, not at all necessary, but very sweet of you.  I hope to host another swap after the first of the year and hopefully, some, or even all, of you will join me.

The fabric will go out in the mail tomorrow so start watching your mailboxes!

Actually, you sent 50 cents too much!  Had plenty of money so your package is on it's way

My fall fabric came today!  I love every one of the prints. It is amazing that there are so many fabrics out there. No shop can carry everything!

"I'm so excited, I just can't hide it.  I'm losing control and I think I like it!"  oops, broke out in song again, didn't I?

I finally did something with a couple of the blocks from the swap.  I'm in a fall exchange for my book club and did up a semi-quick mug rug.  I like how it turned out, anyway, and the person it's for will love it, even with my little FMQ hiccups.

I'm trying really hard to post pictures of it, but my phone just won't let the computer access my gallery!  Stupid technology!  I'm trying to post it directly to facebook instead.
