I am fine with mailing the challenge blocks individually to each person. That will make getting the mail even more fun! 

I am not on the same level as you who've had surgery, but I am struggling with sewing , too, thanks to this new to me what seems to be normal from now on neck issue. It is slow but I am trying to sew some every day.

think a yd. of TOT (tone on tone) of any jewel tone fabric would be great!

That’s fine with me.  I can fold and put in a Christmas card.  Linda, maybe you can send us each an email with all the participants...then you don’t have to send us our SS address as it will be on the list of all participants.

Mary, I love tone on tone fabrics, any color from any vendor.  I like to use them as fillers or smashing.

What ever is easiest for our great leaders!

Fine by me if we mail each block individually, Linda.  I don't have my exact winter address yet, but I will get it in October.

Mary, I love just about any of the florals from the Connecting Threads fabric collections...except orange or yellow.

Kris and all in the Secret Santa group...I was talking with Kathy the other day, we decided the best thing to do with the exchange blocks was for each of you to mail to mail to everyone along with a Christmas card. This way there are no large postage expenses to ship all to one person and that person having to sort and reship to everyone. I can email a list of all the addresses. What do you all think of that idea?

Kris, I would still love for you to come down for a visit. I'm always up for visitors!

Linda - I'm thrilled that you are able to do some sewing and quilting things again.  Praying you just keep getting better and better.  

I have all the blocks done, but will wait until October to get them in the mail to you.  Or, since I'll be back in AZ by then, I might just drive them down to you, if you feel like having company at that point. 

I am not doing any of the ornaments.  I'm currently working on a bunch of hand embroidered ornaments that will be all I can decorate with at Christmas as we will be living in the RV then.  I've started parceling out my collection of hand made tree ornaments to various children so they will still get used and I can still see them from time to time.

Dear SS...if you could have a yard of fabric from any computer vendor, what would it be.  Please give me very complete details of how to find it.  NOT a yarn of extra wide backing fabric.
