OH, Lani what a fabulous find. Those are amazing and $5 was a steal,WTG!!!! As for the swaps, I joined the HGTV quilting and needlework message board about 6 months ago and have not looked back. These are the sweetest, most caring and helpful ladies you'll ever meet. We would love to have you join. They can answer any sewing quilting, or needlework question you have. But most of all we have a lot of fun showing and talking about our projects. You are welcome anytime, just come on over. Here's the link
You'll have to join to see the pics and be able to post. It's simple and free. We're having a huge quilting retreat in April where all of us from all over the country are getting together. That's what my countdown clock is. There is a story behind the guy on it. I'm not that frisky.LOL. Anyway, we do all different kinds of swaps, Just pick the ones that interest you and hop it. There is so many going on all the time, it's hard to decide sometimes. If you decide you'd like to talk sewing and quilting with us let me know I'll introduce you all my online quilty friends. I think a few of them have posted comments on your blog, like Holee, to name one. So come on over and say Hi.

Speaking of Holee..and here I am! Boy, oh got such a bargin! They are fabulous! I'm working away on a grandma's flower garden but it's taking forever.

I am a 2002 surviver of BC so I've been there and done that..does put a big smile on your face!

Of course then I got RA and liver disease, but hey, no one said life was easy and I'm not letting it be my life.

Hop on over to HGTV and show them your wonderful quilts. Bad thing is they are pretty tight on subjects and trigger words, not like a blog where you can just say anything. I joined in 2002 when I needed to be around other women who were whole and not talking about "will we make it". They are a good bunch of ladies.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and I'll add you to mine and stop in from time to time.

Congrats on your recovery!
