This swap was a lot of fun! It was kind of like Christmas every time I would open one of your packages because I wasn't quite sure what I was going to get. I have included with your "Hot Cocktails" a handmade card and a small handmade gift to show my appreciation for your participation in this swap. I will post below the master list of what everybody (with a few exceptions per their request) will be getting in their "Hot Cocktails" package. A few things were very chaffy (zinnias, for example) to the point of being to much to even try to clean or I would have been sitting here three months from now, still trying to clean out the chaff. So they got measured chaff and all.

Single Mixes:

Amaranth - 1/2 tsp

Calendula - 1 tsp

Celosia - 1/16 tsp (roughly 80-100 seeds)

Cleome - 1/4 tsp

Columbine - 1/4 tsp

Cornflower - 1/4 tsp

Cosmos - 1/2 tbsp

Datura - 1/2 tsp

Echinacea - 1/8 tsp

Four O'Clocks - 1 tsp

Gaillardia - 1/2 tbsp

Gomphrena - 1/2 tsp

Hibiscus - 1/4 tsp

Hollyhock - 1 tbsp

Larkspur - 1/8 tsp

Linaria - 1/8 tsp

Marigold - 1 1/2 tbsp

Money Plant - 1/4 tsp

Morning Glory - 1 tsp

Poppy - 1/4 tsp

Rudbeckia - 1/4 tsp

Sedum - 1/4 tsp

Shasta Daisy - 1/4 tsp

Sunflower - 2 tbsp

Sweet William - 1/4 tsp

Yucca - 1/4 tsp

Zinnia - 1 tbsp

Mega Mixes: (all labeled with mix contents)

Annual Mix - 1/2 tbsp

Bulbs from Seed Mix - 1 tsp

Cottage Cutting Garden Mix - 3/4 tsp

Perennial Mix - 1 tbsp

Tree & Shrub Mix - 1/8 tsp

Vines Mix - 1/2 tsp

Thanks to everybody for playing! I hope that maybe in six months you all might be up for another round of "Hot Cocktails"!!!!

Your Hostess,

Netta

Ok...so everybody is packed up and labeled....Etravia and Lizinnh have new recycled envies because theirs took a beating in the mail....I am crossing my fingers and hoping that we have enough postage, might be cutting it close, but the last time I weighed a package on my home scale it weighed half an ounce heavier than the PO scale...just waiting for DH to get home from work now.....in the meantime working on the gifts for my other Round Robin so I can get it out the door.........

So cool! Netta, you always do such a nice job on things. I wish I were half as creative and a quarter as organized as you are!

Yes! Count me in next time and I'll be sure to save all the mixed seeds that come through to donate to the cause. I am so excited about these and it makes absolutely no sense. I have a lot of beautiful, named seeds and a lot of commercial packages I bought, and yet these are probably the ones that will get sown because I want to see what it looks like!

hi
thanks for all the work, I can't wait to get more WS seeds, I have never WS before and sowed them too early and they started sprouting, so I had to bring them in and put them in the greenhouse(the laundry room in the basement)
I'm saving more bottles so I can try again.
thanks again michelle

Mine came today, too!

Love the surprises!!! (I almost posted a thank you for the items by name, until I remembered not everybody might have gotten theirs today!)

The seeds look like they will be so much fun! As I said a million times already -- This was such a great idea!

Please, please, peeps, post pictures of your seed hot cocktails next summer because I won't have room for everything I received. I'll have to pick and choose, but I still want to SEE everything!

Netta,thank you so much for being the hostess of such a wonderful swap! Your personal touches were so thoughtful. I got home and received the package. It was my first thong delivery - ever. (Book thong for folks not part of the swap.) I am dying to plant these and see what colors bloom. Thank you! Thank you! I am sorry for the delay in posting. My internet went down due to the buy out of Adelphia from Comcast. As a young mother, everything goes to my children first and I seldom do or get things for myself. You made my day. Folks from this forum are one of the things I will be thankful for on Thanksgiving day! LizinNH

Got my seeds yesterday!! I can't believe how many wonderful seeds were in there. You did a great job, and to remember us with a personal gift was above and beyond!
I definitely received far more than I gave. Thank all of you that were so generous.

Thank you so much!!

Hi Netta,

I also received my package, and was so pleased. Everything was very neat and organized, and the extra book marker gift was such a nice touch. I think we can all see what effort you put into this swap, and that means so much. Many thanks to you and all of the contributing gardeners!
Happy Holidays,

Hi: Netta: I received my package yesterday - and it sure was a VERY nice package. Thank you for all of the nice goodies. I really did not expect that many seeds, but you fulfilled my dreams by all of the different kinds.
I will have to make another garden to put in all of the different seeds that I received. I want to wish you and everyone involved with this swap a Blessed Thanksgiving and a Merry Christmas. I know I will be thinking of everyone involved next summer when I can sit and enjoy all of these seeds. God's Blessing to you for all of your work.
