Thank you Kay, the blocks are beautiful. They were a real pick me up. I've been in bed with a bug for the past couple of days, and they cheered me up.

Today's mail had another treat! I could get used to getting old if it was always this much fun.

Thank you Jeanne! I love the china print and it's a great block too. Cheerie all around.

Guess I should have been saving up, but it's fun doing it when each one comes. I always rattle Christmas presents too ;-)

Kristene, Your blocks arrived today. Thank you, I love the bold colors. The card is lovely too. It looks like a beautiful place you live.

Is there someone I should be sending two blocks to? I don't want to short anyone and two of you have sent me two.

Linda,

Since Dan withdrew from this exchange, Valarie & I have divided the remaining people between us and making extra blocks to make up for the missing person in the group.

Everyone has to make 2 blocks for Kay, since she has taken 2 positions in the group.

Linda...I didn't want to say anything in my prior email, but there are two blocks from me for your Birthday (as Kristene indicated, we split up making extras) ...in the colors and designs your requested, but both very different.
This is my first year w/ the B D exchange and for whatever reason...I find it fun and a little daunting to select something another would like who I only know via the web...
Anyway...hope they meet your fancy...at least one of them!

Valarie, Your blocks arrived today and they're both lovely. There are few pattern repeats in what I've received so far, but no overlap of fabrics (except when from the same person). It's amazing what variety is out there.

As for the blocks suiting my fancy! Absolutely! This is the most fun I've had in years. Sure hope the ones I send out bring as much joy.

I guess I should have thanked you individually. I got your block yesterday at the same time as Jackie's. Thanks so much. I have an abundance of goodies to try to put together when they all arrive.

My head is swimming with names/screen names. Sure is good that the hostesses were so meticulous in documenting everything. With no faces to connect (except the ones in the camp photo) I refer to the quilters dozen pages every day!

Polardream, Thank you. Your block is beautiful. Looks like one I might like to make more of.

meima,
Thank you, you're too generous! I haven't seen the Ohio Star and friendship star combined before and I really like them. This quilt will gorgeous if I can ever decide a setting.

A really special thank you to all who sent me birthday blocks. I lost my very best friend yesterday and between phone calls and tears, heading to the sewing room to cut pieces for a quilt for my son and working on birthday blocks kept me busy on something constructive.

This will be the first birthday I haven't shared with my friend since our Junior year in high school.

I know this 'virtual' relationship is not the same as some of you have with each other, but it's still valuable and I love all the sharing and hearing how your lives are going.

I received a total of 16 blocks from all of you and am so lucky to have found this forum. When I regroup I'll try to post a photo of the blocks, though I haven't decided how to set them into the quilt yet.

Thank you. Spent a partially cathartic day helping her brother clean out her house. We'll go back next Saturday and get more done.

She'd been there 40 years and was a keeper, so there's a lot in one small house!

Sadly, I brought home the quilt I made for her when she lost her leg 5 years ago. It was a long time in the making and signed by all those who loved her.

My deepest sympathy and heart felt hugs to you the loss of your dear friend.
I just found my closest friend from age 12 up - though she left town 25 years ago and we lost touch...we re-connected last year. I so understand and feel for you.

Happy Birthday!!! Your friend would want you to remember her and all the good times. I am sorry for your loss.
Linda, I understand the 'momentary brightness' the birthday blocks bring you from these virtual friends at this sad time. I speak from experience.......the only thing that made me smile for a few seconds were the birthday blocks I had just opened that were laying out on the floor to greet me each night I came home........this virtual birthday block relationship unknowingly helped me get thru some bleak days.......Enjoy your blocks.

Condolences to her family and friends.

Thank you for the kind words. It's a beautiful spring day. Bought new flowers and a tulip tree for the yard and plan to finish a birthday block today!

Linda,
As one of the co-ordinators of the Birthday Block Exchange and responsible for making posts to this site, I am sorry I wasn't around to post a "Happy Birthday" message for your birthday last Sunday.

Sadly, my father died on 12th Mar and his funeral was on 18th March, so I was away from home during this time. I understand how you feel about losing your friend. Keep hold of the memories of times you shared.

Thank you. Tears come easily, but the memories are trying to crowd them out. I'm lucky to have known her.
