She says she has emailed me twice a while ago as the payment wouldn't go through. I did not receive these emails and I checked my account on the website and she has my current email - AS WELL AS MY PHONE NUMBER AND ADDRESS!!!! Hmmmm.
I have confirmed credit card numbers with her and there is no problem with the funds so I don't know what is going on.
So she is going to try it again and I have told her to just send me the remaining 4 blocks and we can both be free of this drama!
It is such a shame that this has happened as she has lots of great BOMs but I will not be signing up for any of them LOL
Oh, I noticed she is not offering this one anymore - wonder why.

So in 18 months I have received 6 patterns! The funny thing is, it is not a bundle of fabric that needs to be cut up in little pieces each month, it is just a pattern with a square of fabric for the stitchery and some thread! If they can't keep up with that, how on earth do they do something that involves a lot of fabric!!
So it is time to try the endless amount of emails and phone calls in the unlikely hope that someone will actually respond.
I am sorry if some reading this are offended by what I have said, as most of you know who I am talking about, but really I think I have been patient enough, and it has really left a sour taste with me. I am very wary of signing up for another BOM now with anyone.
Ok, rant over LOL

I am in a couple of Yahoo groups that have birthday swaps as well. In the CRAFT group we send 2 FQ's to each person on the birthday list and here are all the wonderful goodies from these lovely girls who have become great friends.I took all the parcels with me and opened them with my mum & aunty at the hotel, so they got to see all the fabric. I don't think any of it made it into their bags LOL
In the other group, BackPorchFriends, there is a theme for the year and this year it was pink & brown, and there was a FQ from everyone in the swap. These fabrics are just so sweet together!
As many of you already know, it was my birthday last Monday and what a lovely birthday it was! I went away for 2 days to Manly (seaside suburb of Sydney) with my mum & aunty who is visiting from the UK. When we left home it was pouring rain, but the closer we got to Manly it cleared up and there was a clear blue sky! We stayed at the lovely Sebel hotel right on the beach, unfortunately we didn't have an ocean view room ( double the price LOL) but we had a great balcony to sit out on.
The view at breakfast:
