Phyllis. , no worries, I sent you a PM , those two blocks will be yours anyway! We ended up ,late in the game, at 15 swappers. So you would get 2 of your own back anyway!   You must of had ESP, lol!   They go out in today's mail!!!  Thank you for letting me twist your arm to be in this swap!  Blessings!

I have mailed everyone's Squishies today.    Most have a delivery date of the 22nd.  3 people their s have a date of the 23 rd.  This is from the kind of return envelope that was enclosed.  I will hold onto tracking numbers, to many and too long to put on here. If you really want them just ask and I will PM them to you.     

A few things  Learned from this swap.  Just for FYI,  ALWAYS please read  mailing instructions for every swap.  Use individual baggies for every block or fat quarter or whatever that swap is.  Label your Baggie, or place inside your Baggie. Put all small baggies in one large Baggie.  Make sure  for your return envelope, that you have it addressed and correct postage for its return trip.   If directions are not followed, boy is it a lot of work for the hostess,   Not to mention confusing at times.   Also, it will save work, and grief and hurt feelings if directions for the swap are read carefully and retread. Even before signing up. Always ask as many questions as it takes for you to be comfortable to have a wonderful experience. No one minds answering questions! There are no stupid questions!!  Now, thank you all again for participating in this swap, thank you for adhering to the shipping times.  Everything went smoothly. I hope you will be pleased with everyone's creation! I know I was!  I am making a beautiful 4 th of July quilt for my Grand babies. They will love it.   Thank all of you, beautiful work!  Blessings!

Candice, I was thinking the other night in bed when I couldn't sleep that I don't remember addressing my return envelope. If I didn't I am sorry. Thanks for all you do.

 

God Bless

Thanks, Candis, for the reminder. Thanks also for hostessing the swap.

One other thing to add to the mailing list that Candis gave is for you to record your RETURN tracking number when you send out your first envelope. That way the hostess doesn't have to send it to you. After all, you prepaid for it.

YIPPEE!!  Mine came today!  Our mail clerk was very puzzled as to why I would send myself a package! 

I LOVE THEM ALL!  What a great idea!!!

Thanks so much, Candis!  You did a super job as hostess!
