Fabric Swap Group

hi ladies I decide to get out of my comfort zone and start a group. it is a group for those of us who would like to swap fabrics. either to build up our stash or maybe get rid of some fabric in our stash. it is for fun and nothing hard and is open to anyone no matter what level you are. I hope some ladies who aren't in any groups or maybe not in any groups yet or even those who are will come and have fun. it doesn't matter where you live either. we will prolly do different swaps for…

New Year 2014 Polar Freeze

Happy New Year to everyone. Hope everyone had a good holiday season. now time for a new year. hopefully this one will be better for me than last year.  Although it isn't starting out too good weather wise. so cold out so this is a good thing for us  quilters to stay inside and sew or quilt or do some crafty thing with fabric.

swaps and other info

hello everyone. well things have been happening in my life that I never intended to be happening with me. I have seen more of a hospital room than my own apartment. I hope now that I am home I can get back to doing things just a little more slower and not try to overdo myself.

I know I have messed up two swaps I am in and I do apologize. I am not one of those people who just gather blocks and don't send any out. I am just in some health issues that came up and interrupted my life. do…
