This thread is for the Birthday Block Exchange so you can post when you send your birthday block to Fay and she can let us know when she receives them.
I posted your block on Monday 7th Feb. I have been without a computer for a while and just getting back on line. Didn't want to be late for your birthday
Faye, I completed your block last night. When you get all the blocks together, you will have a 'jewel' of a quilt! @:)
Faye, I mailed your block today, it should be there before your big day.
I finished making your block today and will get it into the mail on Tuesday. I really like this block and made it a few years ago for cornerstones on a sampler quilt. I think it finished 4 inches. This one was much more enjoyable to make. lol
Your block went into the mail today. Enjoy!
I have your block done, I just need to get it in the mail. Hopefully on Wednesday?
Your block was put to post this morning. Hope it makes it on time of a happy birthday. Jayne
Your birthday block is in the mail. I hope you like it!
Faye, Your block is on it's way. I can't wait to see all of them together.
First 2 packages arrived today :)
Thank you Beverly and Mary. I was going to wait to open them all together, but I only lasted... maybe a minute, not quite. haha
They are both beautiful. Thank you, thank you.
Faye, I just got back from the post office and your block is making its way to you. Hope you like it and hope you have a wonderful birthday!
Kristene's block arrived today. Thank you so much Kristene for the beautiful block and the extra Japanese made fabric. It is gorgeous and not something I would ever find here.
I'll take pictures soon, if I remember how to post them.
Your block will go out either today (if the snow quits) or tomorrow. It was a fun one to do!
I got your package in the mail yesterday. I apologize if it does not make it on time...
Have a wonderful birthday!
From all your friends in the Birthday Block Exchange groups:
Happy Birthday to you.
Happy Birthday to you.
Happy Birthday, dear Faye.
Happy Birthday to you!
In honor of your birthday, you can be our quilter of the day!
(...and I am so sorry that the mail is taking so long and my block has not arrived yet. Maybe it will come on your birthday. I sure hope so!)
Thank you ladies.
I have a cat with that coloring but he's short haired. I'm looking forward to the mail today and the next few days. I don't know why it takes so long to cross the border but I don't mind spreading it out. I'll try and get pictures up soon.
Hope you all have a great Faye's Birthday :)
Congratulations Robin and Sharon. Your timing was perfect and your blocks arrived yesterday exactly on the right day. :)
They are both absolutely gorgeous. I am so impressed at the quality of blocks I've received. Thank you all so much.
"I am so impressed at the quality of blocks I've received."
We just keep on learnin'! Practice makes perfect! lol
Faye, So glad you're happy with the blocks you've received. Can't wait to see them all together.
Two more arrivals today, from Linda and Kay. Thank you ladies, they are beautiful.
So that is seven, five to go. I'm noticing a real red/purple theme with a couple of blues, so I'm looking forward to getting them all together to see how they all go together.
Faye, I hope your BD was happy. As I haven't seen that you received my block yet I am beginning to be concerned as it was mailed on the 15th. That does seem a long time just to cross the boarder. Jayne
No, don't worry yet, sometimes it takes a very long time.
Faye, I am worrying about my block taking so long to get to you also. How long should we wait before we get very, very concerned? I look ever day to see if you have posted that it made it to you...
Faye, I actually finished your block today...properly this time! I will take it to the Post Office Monday after I get off work. I really apologize for the delay.
Your block has been mailed!
Blocks from Cindy and Jayne arrived yesterday. Thank you ladies, beautiful! And thanks Jayne for the extra batik.
If you have mailed it already, please don't worry. It will get here eventually. I've had mail from my mother, who lives in Atlanta, go to Hong Kong on its way here... seriously. But it eventually gets here. Worry pas.
Jeanne, yours arrived today. Thank you so much,
So, that just leaves Sally's and Katherine's which are on their way. I'll keep ya posted.
Thanks for letting me know. Big sigh of relief! LOL
I feel better now. Thank you for letting us know. It's appreciated. Jayne
Faye...I'm just wondering if you received my block yet. Mary posted that she received hers. I mailed them the same day, so hopefully, you'll get it soon if you haven't already.
No, still waiting for the last two. We had a few days where the mail was undeliverable because of the snow, so I'm thinking maybe things got backed up. They will come, I'm not worried.
Sally, your block arrived today. Thank you so much. Just one still winding its way here. All of these blocks are just lovely. Pictures soon.
I am so sorry that your package has not arrived yet. I hope it hasn't gotten lost. If it doesn't show up soon I will remake and send again.
Thanks for letting me know!
Yay! Guess what arrived today? Katherine's envelope with not one but 2 blocks. Maybe that's why it took twice as long to get here. Haha.
I've taken some pictures (badly) but wanted to post this info in the meantime while I try and remember how to get the pics up.
I am very happy with this collection. Wait til ya see. :)
I am so happy they finally arrived...i was getting really worried!!
