My sincerest apology to Mary, Linda, and Melanie.  We went to trade in our truck for a new one, and as my husband was cleaning out the truck, he found 3 envelopes.  I guess they had fallen out of the box that I had all of my Christmas mailing in when I went to the post office.  I'm just glad we found them now, and not sometime next summer.  Oh well, I guess better late than never.

Perfect was never a requirement from friends.  I am amazed at your recovery and determination to keep doing it all.  Be patient with yourself, you deserve a "heavy leather medal" (My father's favorite award).

All 10 of my blocks are in the mail and heading for all of you! Thank you for your patience. I hope they are well received. They are not perfect- one in particular proved to me that my TBI is still with me- 

I took it apart and put it back together wrong 3 times- the last time I decided it just wanted to be that way. It’s an interesting block. Anyway- they are on their way and I can move forward now.

Colleen, I resent the email to you with all the addresses.

Comment by Colleen Froats on January 4, 2021 at 8:42pm

Thank you Kris, I thought I had everyone friended- sorry I missed you. 

Comment by Kris Howell on January 4, 2021 at 8:38pm

Colleen - if you will friend me, I can send you all the addresses.

Comment by Colleen Froats on January 4, 2021 at 8:17pm

Ok, I went back through the lists and found the person I was missing- so, I have all 10 now— now I just need those addresses. ;)

Comment by Colleen Froats on January 4, 2021 at 8:08pm

I actually have 3 days in a row off starting tomorrow! I want to finish up the blocks and finally get them mailed out- sorry for being so tardy.

I have a question though— I only have the info ( colors/ theme) for 9 people (10with me) is that right??? Or, am I missing someone- or more than one? 
also, I know I was sent addresses- but only the lord knows where that list went....

I see my picture didn't load.  Let me try again.  Internet isn't as screwy right now. Fingers crossed......

Here are the blocks I have received so far, laid out on the marvelous Cityscape fabric that the wonderful Ginny found for my SS box!!  I'm thinking of narrow borders around each block with the colored fabric, then sashing with the black in the lower left corner to make a lap quilt.  

Happy New Year to you all - and may we all have many happy sewing hours this year.
