Late Blocks

Hi Girls,

I'm not sure how many of you check in here anymore, since there are hardly ever any comments, but I really hope you can all find some time now that summer is winding down.

The reason I'm writing this is to hopefully encourage all of you with late blocks to get them done and sent out. I know that Christine issued us all a challenge to use this month to get caught up and I really hope you're doing that if need be. This isn't a big commitment really, just an hour or two a month, so please try to find time for it since a lot of us have already found the time for your personal blocks.

We haven't been very organized about this compared to other quilting bees, but I think we should be keeping track where all the blocks are.

For instance, my month was June. It is now nearing the end of August and I am missing blocks from:
and whoever replaced HELENE.

If your name is above, please either send me my fabric back or get my square done. This was supposed to be a gift for my husband to spice up our apartment and it's now very late. I don't think a single other girl has gotten all their blocks from their month either, so maybe if we give enough encouragement, our over-due blocks will get done.

I really don't want to be the jerk of the group, but I know I am not the only one disappointed in how this is working out. We each paid our hard earned money for that fabric and sent it out with the belief that we would be seeing it again. This was a commitment you made and as an adult and nestie all apart of one community, we owe it to each other to not just drop this responsibility.

Thank you,

Hey there Patty, Nicely put. I have not received the addresses yet to send out my fabric. I have September and am hoping everyone is still on board. Only two months left, we have to finish strong. =)
