Ya know, when you think you are moving and you start packing everything up and then the move explodes and you stay where you are - and then start unpacking slowly just incase? Well, look what I un-earthed this afternoon: 2 gorgeous second rows from Patricia W in Buckingham, United Kingdom!! They were my June, 2016 rows!! Yikes!! Thank you so much, Patricia, they will be wonderful around some of my dotty flowers!!

Wow! It’s September already. Where did our Northern Hemisphere summer go? It seems like we were just celebrating the beginning of summer. I know some of you are looking at the end of winter and are looking forward to summer. Can you tell that my favorite season is summer?
This month we welcome Tessa Johnson from Iowa, USA and Debbie Sprague from Florida, USA. We're also saying good-by to Lori Jones from Tennessee USA.
On another topic, as we all know, all things eventually come to an end, and I am at the point where I have more than enough flowers for my Grandmother’s Flower Garden quilt and will be leaving the group. So saying, I’m hoping that one of you will be willing to take over organizing our monthly flower swap. Please let me know if you’re interested. The system I use is not difficult to use as long as you’re familiar with Excel. Of course, you’re free to work out your own system. I will stick around through the end of the year but if no one comes forward by then I guess the group will have to shut down. Please let me know if you’re interested.
The September 2016 lists have been emailed to you. Please let me know if you find any errors.

It's hot in Texas! We're still enjoying summer in the USA. I hope everyone is enjoying the weather, wherever you are and also enjoying your sewing.
A couple of reminders: The flowers you sew should be of 100% cotton. If you use scraps, which is perfectly fine, just make sure they are 100% cotton. I know that sometimes "life" gets in the way of our sewing. It happens to all of us but please communicate with your swap partner and let them know if their flowers may be late and when they can expect to receive them.
The August 2016 Lists have been emailed. Please let me know if you find a problem.
