When you are ready to mail your pieces to me.......

Just a reminder
email for address please. Include a self addressed stamped envelope. The same size envelope you sent them to me in so I can be sure the return pieces will fit and postage will be covered. If you cannot do this, you can bribe me with some small bit of CQ stash. I do not need stash, but an addiction is an addiction! :-) That being said, please, NO hostess gifts. I know you appreciate playing, but gifts are very unnecessary.

June first is deadline

I was speaking to Marjorie today and learned that she along with a few others thought the puzzle pieces were due on May first. I am so sorry, that was the first due date but I moved it to June first to accommodate more swappers. I posted it on this blog, but never changed it on my Gatherings blog. I apologize and hope you do not rush to your mail box. You have one more month.

JUNE FIRST IS DEADLINE for puzzle pieces

6 puzzle pieces from Marjorie Holme of IL

My friend Marjorie Holme of IL is dropping these beautiful puzzle pieces off at the Art Center on Saturday during her visit to Chesterton. Marjorie is a very talented needlewoman and works a lot with counted thread projects which shows in her detailed pieces. I can't wait to see them in person. What a wonderful variety. Naturally my eye landed the green and purple flower filled piece. :-) Great job Marjorie!! Love em'

Examples of puzzle from Patti Edmond

I was delighted when Patti Edmond offered to share her puzzle pieces on this blog. Although she is not "playing", I thank her so much for allowing me to share her examples of puzzle pieces made without fabrics so everyone knows you do not have to make a crazy quilt puzzle piece to play. We want all media.
So, here are some of Patti's pieces. (Thanks Patti!!!!)
