Kristene, I was on vacation last week and your package showed up sometime while we were gone. So far, I've been so busy the urge to open it has been minimal. Let's see if I can hold out as the rest arrive???!

Thank you, Mary, I'll be watching for yours next week.

Thanks,
Robbi

Thanks everyone!! This is very exciting to get these in the mail. My kids can't understand why I'm not opening them.

Kay, I received yours yesterday. I'm still so busy, the urge to open them hasn't set in. I'm home the next few evenings, so I'm sure the urge will get worse!!

I posted on the wrong place I guess. I sent your BD block yesterday. Have a happy one. Jayne

RE: Ribbons & Boes - Robbi (lafonda_ranch) - Nov 12th

Robbi, I sent your block out on Saturday...the clerk said "looks like it should be there on Monday" but I'm betting that's a little optimistic! Anyway, you should see it soon and I hope you have a wonderful day on Saturday.

I got a few more in the mail yesterday. I'm at work and can't remember who they were from (plus I got home about 9:30pm last night!!). I'll try to post from home and let you know what I have. The anticipation is building!!

Robbi,

I am embarassed to say that I just realized your birthday is this weekend and I haven't made your block yet. I hope to make it tonight after work and send it out tomorrow. I am really sorry! :(

Katherine

RE: Ribbons & Boes - Robbi (lafonda_ranch) - Nov 12th

No problem, Katherine!! I'm not celebrating with my family until the 19th due to schedule conflicts. My husband always calls it the "7 days of Robbimas". Unfortunately, he doesn't do a gift on each of those days, but we always seem to spread out the celebrating!

Robbi

RE: Ribbons & Boes - Robbi (lafonda_ranch) - Nov 12th

Robbi,

I mailed your package to you today. The postman said it might be there by Saturday. I hope so!!

Thank you for the wonderful birthday wishes!! I had so much fun opening those squishy packages!! Even my kids were excited to see them :-) Here is a picture of the ones I received as of Saturday (I forgot the list that detailed which block belonged to whom, sorry). But aren't they beautiful??!!

Those blocks are awesome! I'll be mailing mine tomorrow. I just have to sew a couple of seams tonight and it will be finished. I apologize for the tardiness.

Thanks for posting the picture, Robbi. Sorry mine hasn't gotten there yet, but I was worried it was too dark. Now, I think it will play very nicely with the ones you already have. Hope it arrives today.

ummm...I just mailed it today. Are you sure it was from me?

RE: Ribbons & Boes - Robbi (lafonda_ranch) - Nov 12th

Salijo, I guess I need to look at the envelope again! My memory isn't that great lately :-( I'll check when I get home this afternoon and see.

I did get Fay's yesterday. Beautiful and it does play great with the other blocks. Beautiful!! I'll post another picture when I get them all together.

My family has enjoyed seeing all the postage from other countries. My dh even said I should keep the envelopes?

Thanks,
Robbi

Well, I was thinking that sometimes miracles DO happen, but I kind of doubted this would be one of those instances.

Salijo

RE: Ribbons & Boes - Robbi (lafonda_ranch) - Nov 12th

OK, I checked the envelope and card again, and it isn't from Salijo, but from quiltpartner/Cindy. Sorry Cindy!! And Thank you! It is a beautiful block :-)

RE: Ribbons & Boes - Robbi (lafonda_ranch) - Nov 12th

Robbi, I'm just checking to see ir you've gotten my block yet. I mailed it last Tuesday and I kind of thought it might have arrived by now...we're only a few states away from each other.
Salijo


 o
RE: Ribbons & Boes - Robbi (lafonda_ranch) - Nov 12th

Yes, I did!! I can't remember exactly which day I received it, but it was either Friday or Saturday. We had a lot of family in this past weekend, and I'm still trying to recover from it! I also received grammyp's at the same time. And they are beautiful!! Maybe one day this week I'll be able to get an updated photo of all the blocks since I won't have to work???

Thank you again!!

Robbi

RE: Ribbons & Boes - Robbi (lafonda_ranch) - Nov 12th

I understand being busy with the holidays..thank you for letting me know! I'm looking forward to seeing a photo of all your blocks together. I really look forward to that part of the exchange (I just wish more would post them!)

RE: Ribbons & Boes - Robbi (lafonda_ranch) - Nov 12th

Robbi,
Did you end up getting Katherine's block? I can't see it acknowledged anywhere in your posts?

If you did, then that would mean you have receved all 12 of your blocks.

Kristene

RE: Ribbons & Boes - Robbi (lafonda_ranch) - Nov 12th

I will go back over them and see if any are missing. I will try this afternoon, but we are going to see the Fantasy of Trees in Knoxville with some friends this evening, and with Thanksgiving it might be Friday before I can really look at them.

Thanks,
Robbi
