UPDATE: What I have left on my want lists seeds on their way

pattygrow5(z6Pa)March 9, 2006

I got the last package and I only have a few more to get done

here's how I did it all of the seeds marked for each person we put in an envelope with their name on I went through each persons seeds if there were doubles I left only one of that type in then if they sent say 20 seeds and got say 30 I picked the best 23 to send them(3 are a bonus from me)put the other seeds in a big bowl(so some seeds will have others name on). Did this with each person those of us who didn't get a lot sent for us (because our wants are so specific and harder to come by) of course are the ones who sent more wants because we have so many varieties. I had to send you some(only some) things not on your wants then I dug into my seeds and tried to send you different things you might not have(I wanted you all to be happy)I think you all will be post here let me know if you like your packets. I then took any leftover seeds and split them up between you all and put them in a little ziploc. Ladies I put in over 150 packets in some are my special stash seeds. I have a few I have to add more of my seeds to today to bring them up to their sent amount plus 3 from me they will go out tomorrow morning . The most sent was sunnysmiles with 105 wants sent. I am going to send her an extra package with some special things next week. I hope you all had fun. I have to do this again next year a lot of work but a lot of fun.I got to take some things off my want list.Thanks to all of you. Patty

I am sure we all are grateful for your hard work, I know that has to be a lot to do. I have never hosted a swap before, far too fearful I will mess things up. Sure wish I could have filled more wishes, maybe next year!

I received my package today! Wow! I received some great seeds from my list (just when I thought I was through planting seeds lol). Many many thanks to everyone who sent seeds in for me and thank you Patty for all of your hard work. This was a great swap! I hope you will do it again next year.

Got mine today too, so many I was looking for, & several that wasn't on my wish list, but someone must have known I would want them :) We picked up the mail on the way out of town this morning, I was looking thru them in the car. My husband dropped me off & I left them in the car. Otherwise I would be sitting, drooling over them right now! My thanks to all who shared their seeds with me, and Patty, you're just the BEST!

I received my bubble envelope filled with many of my seed wishes yesterday too! Lots of great bonuses also!! Thanks to everyone for contributing their seeds and making my gardening wishes come true!

However, the BIGGEST THANKS goes to Patty, our Round Robin Coordinator, who worked long hours sorting through hundreds of seed packets, matching up wishes with actual packets of seeds, distributing, adding "extras", and then mailing off lot of envelopes to participants!!! A BIG round of applause for Patty!!! This wouldn't have been possible without YOU!!!

I have participated in several wish list swaps in the past, but I have never received so many of my wishes! There was absolutely nothing in my envelope that I am not excited to receive. Thanks to all of you and, of course, special thanks to our hostess, Patty. I hope to have even more to share next year!
