I want to apologize in advance, I started your postcard 2 weekends ago, and haven't had a chance to touch it since. I will finish it over Easter and it'll go in the mail on Tuesday. Most things take around 8 days from…"
"Thank you for the pictures, Heike! I love all your wonderful postcards! I know that your birthday is still a couple of weeks off, but I might be so busy that I miss the proper day, so Happy Birthday!!
"Marly - I am sorry, I am almost certainly going to be late with your birthday card. I haven't had a chance to catch a full night's sleep let alone make ATCs since Mom-In-Law's arrival. I am hoping that when her belongings arrive in a…"
Have you received your card from Marja yet? I may have missed the note- I've been catastrophically busy this week.
The sparkly fiber you mentioned sounds a lot like "Angelina" fiber. It is really fun to work with!"

If I'm reading your description correctly, it sounds like it will turn out something similar to a low water immersion style dye bath. You should get some really wonderful results- unless the baggies block too much of the dye…"
Thank you for letting me know that one of my fabrics arrived!
For the ice dye, I used a 3-yard length of fabric and a whole bunch of different dye powder colors. Part of the fabric was almost a funky yellow, part was predominantly…"
I just realized -- Easter is coming again! woot! ...okay, this shouldn't catch me by surprise, really. It happens every year, and every year I have a week-long commitment that happens on the week surrounding Easter, so really I know…"
Your April stamping printing gelli madness sounds fabulous! It sounds like you had a really good time. :)
I look forward to seeing the results!
It also sounds like you have a really helpful wonderful postal staff. I have nothing but…"
I received your wonderful April fabrics! I especially love how the addition of tannin muted the turquoise, and how all of the dye results look over the pre-printed fabrics that you chose. Gorgeous. I like them all and thank you for being so…"
Thank you for letting me know that my fabrics are travelling safely!
So glad that you enjoy the charred corner on your piece of fabric. :) Maybe I will try intentional charring at some point! ;)
Turns out that the Ooopsie that led to the…"
"Hi, Joanne! Good luck with your house offer! .. while we're mentioning good books, I also like Jane Dunnewold's "Complex Cloth" and Elin Noble's "Dyes and Paints". We are indeed lucky to live in an era in…"
it is quite a while that I wrote. I was pretty busy with my work and Family affairs in the last few weeks.
But I wanted to let you know that I already got some wonderful postcards although my birthday is on 28th this month. I just…"
Hi Tahlia.me again. If I go into Picassa (my pictures) I can send a picture but when I put in the address...."stitchinfingers,ning.com " it won't accept that address. What will I type into the address? Mary Wyn
I contacted Mary Corbett when I looked at the main page and she was the one who gave the rules for the whole group. She did answer me and told me that she had written to Kalona and that if she hadn't heard from her within 48 hours I was free to take over the administration of the swap. I haven't replied to her because I wanted to get the group's opinion if it was OK if I took over. It seems as though the majority who answered OK'd me, so now I will write back to Mary and tell her I am taking over and ask how to go about doing it (something you probably know since you are already in charge of some things). I wouldn't worry too much about getting permission because I am sure she already knows about the things you are in charge of. In my case I was asking her permission to take over the swap from Kalona because she just disappeared and stopped answering messages from anyone, so it was a special situation. Any help you can give me about running things would be welcome. I do want to write again to everyone in our group and let them know about the swap for the coming year and how it will be different than it was before because there will be directed things to do for some months. I will be doing a directed swap for January and will be giving out the directions after the holidays and after I get everyone signed up. It will be a lot of fun and will cost very little, if anything, because most of us already have the supplies for it. I also think that it is something that most of the members have never done. That is my hope anyway, to do things that are new and different.
