Kristin, there will always be challenges in a group such as this. I think you're doing a fine job keeping up with the changes. It's like piecing a scrappy quilt... just when you think you've got the colors all equally spaced and placed your eye catches a concentrated patch and by moving one block you create a chain effect causing other blocks to need moving. Try as you may, there just may not be a perfect solution... you just have to try your best and in the end, you WILL have a beautiful quilt and we will all be warmer for your efforts. Thank you!

Jacy, your package will be leaving south Texas tomorrow!
thanks Jacy ,I 'll keep a look out for it . Barbara
EAT!! SLEEP !! QUILT!!
Kristin, you have done a great job and don't let anyone convince you otherwise. It is an admirable endeavor to even take on such a task and I have always been told you can please some of the people some of the time, but you can never please all of the people all of the time".
Kristin, hang in there. It will all work out. You've done a good job keeping track of everyone. Thanks for taking this on.
Kristin you are doing a wonderful job. I will be a few days late sending the packages for February - I am waiting on a couple items to arrive to put into the packages and have to finish up my hand made gifts - I am sorry that life has hit me again this year - I was so going to be right on time in the beginning - but I do get my packages out and they are almost ready. Fabric depot.com where I buy a lot of small gifts is not taking credit cards right now online so they call you and I missed the call to finish my order as I was at the hospital - I am going to try and call them this morning when they open to finish this up - then my 2 peoples for February's gifts will be winging there way - I do have a few days yet to make it on time but I am figuring that with the delay in finishing the order that they might be a coupld days late.
Jacy, your package went out today. Expected date Mon. 2.
jacy ,your package is going out in Mondays Mail you should have it in a couple of days. Barbara
Packages are in the mail to Jacy (Group 1) and Mimi (Group 3). USPS Priority Mail, so they should arrive in 2-3 days. Happy Birthday, Ladies!!
I've really been enjoying this group and just wanted to say a big thanks to Kristin for organizing. I know it's been a ton of work/headache for you so far and just wanted to say thanks for all you've done for us. I know I've really been enjoying sending out the packages and seeing all the posts from the happy recipients. You've done a great job with an extremely challenging task.
thank you Bonita, barbara and Carolyn, I'll be watching for them!
Jacy and Mimi, please know that your gift will be coming - I ordered a couple things and they are late in arriving and then with Mom breaking her hip life has turned topsy turvey. But I might be a little late in getting it all together - I know once I get it all together and mailed that you will be happy...teeheee... as I thought of each of you as I was putting your gifts together. I am so sorry though that they will be a belated birthday gift. Why do I have troubles every year it seems at the beginning of the year... I just don't need any more problems for a while... I am thinking of both of you though!
Thea, a belated gift just extends my birthday, makes it last longer! So don't stress over it.
Jacy:Thea, a belated gift just extends my birthday,
Jacy just said it all. I'm very patient. I've waited to remodel my kitchen for more than 20 years. I can wait for a long time for something quilty. : ) Just knowing you thought of me personally is so nice. Don't sweat the small stuff. You've got enough on your plate right now.
Carolyn (CarolBeau):Packages are in the mail to Jacy (Group 1) and Mimi (Group 3)
Thanks Carolyn! It sure is exciting to be waiting for something when you don't know what it is. I'll be watching and let you know.
Denise, your package is on its way! Have a very Happy and Blessed Birthday! Your Mailbox buddie!
