Yeah ! my blocks were sent out for a week before I left to Hawaii. They took trips to 6 towns
Logan, Chesapeake, New Kensington, Provo, Belleville, Denton, and San Antonio.
I also got 2 packages back from 2 teammates from Provo and San Antonio.
LOVE them all. How many times I said this :-) Thanks a lot!
Here we are some pictures from our Hawaii trip. The way quilter's took control of camera.

I made 2 more blocks to substitute 2 blocks that none of the secrets and tips can manipulate them. They are 2/8 inch short of 12.5' so I don't think adding another strip can help. Ms. a Little Short and Ms. Almost Right will stay with me - no pictures for these 2 blocks hee hee :-)

I've just finished these 12 blocks this afternoon. They all are red and green predominantly. I'm having fun and each block is easy to make (even I have to hide my first 2 blocks - that came out smaller than 12.5). Now I know the secret. It's a scant quarter inch. I need to sew some more so more choices to send to Beth (for charity block) and the other 6 friends swap. More blocks also mean my good time to experiment with color combination. I have to set 'smiling Santa' fabric aside in a full yardage. I figure that only the Santa face is bigger than 3.5' square. Why didn't I bring a small ruler to fabric store! It was an hour drive. Anyway...whatever I had good time :-)

I got some fabrics for the Christmas block swap. I plan to use candy-colored Christmas by Alexander Henry as a center square. There are many many cute candy colored graphics. But the smiling Santa is also lovely. How about .. lines of pine tree from Figgy Pudding. Um.. glad that I signed up for 12+1 blocks. Tomorrow I will pull out more fabrics from my scrap bin and sewing factory will be opened.
