Hi, just remembered this and found it again. Hope I can find those buttons now. We send them to you, TMM, is that right? Do I have your address, and do we send them to SC and when and where and how? I don't think I have your address. STEL-LA! I'm so confused. Help.

Poor Bobbie. It is confusing isn't it. Okay here we go.

The basket blocks for Helen's mom get sent to Stella. Deadline is the end of January.
Any money that anyone wants to give to help with finishing and mailing that quilt goes to me.

The button swap has nothing to do with the basket blocks.
The buttons are for embellishing the Christmas quilt-a-long Helen designed for next year. Yes, send the buttons to me. The swap will officially be in January but if you want to send them early you can. If you need my address (or Stella's) please P.M. me.

Ummm, Helen, any chance you going to send the patterns to me before we start? lmao

I'm more confused than I thought I was, wrong Tx gal. I think I even confused you. My Stella referance was me trying to be funny and quoting the movie/play Streetcar Named Desire when the Marlon Brando character screams out "STEL-LA", but guess it didn't work. Thud

Now I do hope I can find those buttons. Thanks.

lmao lmao lmao That's hilarious Bobbie. I missed that reference totally because I immediately thought of Stella, Redmadder, who is doing the basket blocks. Nothing like the blind leading the blind is there? lmao lmao lmao lmao

Okay Ladies. Helen is working on getting the pattern to me and then I will work on getting it out to y'all. So let's do buttons in the mean time shall we?

This is my list. If you are on it and don't want to be, let me know and if you are not on it and want to be, let me know that too. lol!

Let's set the deadline for Jan 30th and then I can send them back out the first week of Feb. Please include a SASE with your buttons to make it easy for me to send them back. A dozen buttons in, and a dozen buttons back. :rainbow:

Yep, charm thingys are perfectly okay. Someone was just too lazy to type buttons/charms. azn

I got Shemoos buttons. Sadly, a few were broken but I have extra so it won't be a problem. Guess they are more fragile than we think. Hope the post office goes easy on the others. azn

Shemoocows, I haven't sent mine and I have plenty of extra, so that would be enough to make up for the ones you sent that got broken. That would save you alot of postage.
