No Sew Block Swap . . . .

First, an apology.  Mavis (she is in the second RWB group) did send her blocks AND she spent a ton of money to get them here fast.  I then dropped the ball.  I am so sorry I delayed everything. My grandkids have been here while my daughter-in-law had surgery to have her hip replaced.  Surgery was supposed to happen in January and I knew that wouldn't effect the swap.  But it was postponed until this week due to some complications.  I just LOVE my grandkids and LOVE having them but I can't do ANYTHING (shower? what's that?) while they are here.  I don't know how I did it when my kids were little!  Is it just that I'm older?!?!  Because we got hit with a snowstorm they stayed longer than was planned. Home is 100 miles away and the roads were bad.  They are now home safe.  Their mom is hurting, but healing and on the way to a new lease on life.... she'll be running and playing with the kids this summer!  WOOHOO!!

I spent today catching up and getting packages ready.  One person let me know that they could not participate due to an illness and death in the family.  Blocks for two others have not arrived.  I replaced those three with myself and cut blocks so all groups are ready.

Packages will be mailed tomorrow. 

THANKS FOR PLAYING!!!

Glad that your DIL's surgery went well. With all the cold gray weather it will be a welcome bit of sunshine to receive the block swap in the mail. And I am sure that everyone understands the delay and have had many other projects to keep busy with while waiting. Thanks for the update. I have been making a scrap quilt from Bonnie Hunters new book.

I'm sure we were all okay with waiting.......as we are all so good at having projects in progress for a LONG time before we finish them (at least most of us, I should say). LOL
