Mary,

Your block is on it's way. I wanted to get it out early as I am out of town most of the month.

With the baby due any day, I'll be getting your block out tomorrow. I don't want to get so busy that I forget later this month!

Your block has been up on my design wall for a month, Mary, and I just love it. I can hardly wait to see your quilt with this one. It's my new favorite.

It will go in the mail Monday.

I am getting excited so don't know if I will be able to hold off opening them this year. Last year I was at a retreat on my birthday so I opened them all there with my quilting friends and we oooed and ahhhd together!

Hi, Mary,

Your blocks left PA today. Hope they get there in time, I forgot until I addressed the envelope that yours needed extra time to cross the border!

Rec'd the 2nd block today from Linda...thanks!
"Open me, open me" is getting louder!

I rec'd an envelope from Dan today.....love the Bonsai stamps!

Now they are 3.....can I wait 6 more days?

RE: Icing on the Cake - tuppermom- 3/27

I have your block done, but need to find time to get to the post office!

Number 4 has arrived and my self-control is still intact!

Thanks Beverly!

RE: Icing on the Cake - tuppermom- 3/27

thought my block would have been there. never know with the mail these days. hope it arrives soon


 o
RE: Icing on the Cake - tuppermom- 3/27

Just 3 more days Mary! Hang in there!


 o
RE: Icing on the Cake - tuppermom- 3/27

Not yet patti60. I didn't get any mail on Friday and we don't have Saturday delivery here. You just never know with mail coming from and going to the US. I have mailed packages at the same time to California and New York and the one to CA got there 6 days earlier and I live an hour from the border of New York state.....go figure.

Dan, they are still unopened but their whispers are getting louder!


 o
RE: Icing on the Cake - tuppermom- 3/27

Mary, your block is on the way. I'm afraid it will be a bit late and if it doesn't arrive, please let me know. Our substitute mailperson was not very confident on international shipping protocol. I am amazed that you aren't giving in to those whispers! ;)

RE: Icing on the Cake - tuppermom- 3/27

Just 2 more days Mary! Lol! You're one tough cookie, aren't you? I would've given in by now.
Dan


 o
RE: Icing on the Cake - tuppermom- 3/27

I will let you all know when the blocks arrive.

I have been involved in Birthday swaps for a few years now...here and on other forums....and I always said I wouldn't open them until my birthday. Last year is the only year that I was able to hold out and I loved opening them all at once...a greater impact....so this year it is so far so good!


 o
RE: Icing on the Cake - tuppermom- 3/27

Mary, you are an inspiration!
I hadn't given it much thought until this week, I guess I just thought I'd open my envelopes when they arrived in September. But now? I think I'm going to wait until my birthday and open them up all at once. It does sound like that would be more fun, if I can hold out that long!
Lol, hang in there! I'm pulling for you!
Dan


 o
RE: Icing on the Cake - tuppermom- 3/27

No blocks today so I will wait until after the mail comes tomorrow to open them instead of in the morning with my coffee.


 o
RE: Icing on the Cake - tuppermom- 3/27

And I hope you have a lovely birthday admiring all your super blocks.

Went to my guild meeting tonight and got an early birthday present....I won the 50/50 draw! A neighboring guild is having their show this weekend so I will have some extra money to spend!

Thanks for the birthday wishes!

Thanks to all for your birthday wishes.
I have just arrived home after a very busy day and have not yet opened my blocks. We didn't get any mail today...not even junkmail.....so only have 4 so will wait one more day to open them. DH always celebrates his birthday week so I will too!

I received a beautiful birthday block from Deanna today....thank you. I now have 8 blocks.


 o
RE: Icing on the Cake - tuppermom- 3/27

You're welcome, Mary! So glad it finally arrrived as I was beginning to worry. This was a fun block to do. I almost chose it myself. Looking forward to seeing your quilt. Did you find anything fun at the show to spend your surprise 50/50 winnings on?

RE: Icing on the Cake - tuppermom- 3/27

The mail from the US seems to be slow right now
The first place I head for at quilt shows is the Member's Boutique. Some not only have items the guild members have made but also fabric, books, patterns etc. I bought 6 fat eighths of 30s reproduction fabric, a panel of 20 blocks that look like redwork (cheater), about 1 yd (total) of neutral fabric pieces, a whole bunch of strips of fabric in Amish colors, some strip-pieced vintage fabrics and about 250 precut fabric circles all for 17.00.
It was a nice show.....not as many quilts as I have seen at this show in the past but a good merchant mall and member's boutique.

Pat
Wait until tuesday because I am not sure if we have mail delivery on Monday. I will post after I get the mail on Tuesday and let you know if it has arrived.

Mary

RE: Icing on the Cake - tuppermom- 3/27

I'm guessing mine hasn't shown up either. it was mailed the week of your birthday. (I don't remember the exact day, that week was a blur for me!) With what they charged to mail it, it was my understanding that it would be there within a week at the latest! :( I'm sorry!


 o
RE: Icing on the Cake - tuppermom- 3/27

Yes, just waiting for 2 more.....Pat and Virginia. Hopefully they will be in the mailbox tomorrow!

Mary


 o
RE: Icing on the Cake - tuppermom- 3/27

My last 2 blocks arrived today....thank you Pat and Virginia!

It always amazes me that half of the blocks were just put in the envelope and mailed and the other half needed to go through customs. The same thing happens here when I am mailing blocks to the US. *Scratching my head*

I will post a picture of all of the blocks when I get home...I am catsitting at my brother's house in Toronto for a couple of days.
