Well, I have 3 and a half more rows to tie. Once I'm done with that I will re-iron it, take a photo and get it listed for sale. I'm sure hoping to get all of that done before bed this evening. I did stop by the post office and checked picked up some of the flat rate boxes. $14.70 to send the largest one and I don't think even a baby quilt would fit inside one of the boxes. I believe these are the priority boxes. Are there others that I don't know about that are free to pick up? Thanks, Marsha

I have missed something somewhere. Where are you sending the quilts? I have not shipped much of anything, but you have just given an example of why shipping and handling is so high anymore. You seem to get a ton of stuff done. Are you still listing at your BluJay store? Sorry I cannot be of much help to you on this one.

you didn't miss anything....just after years of just commenting back I've decided to start posting too. LOL I thought a good thing would be to post about my crafts. I'm going to change the title since everyday I won't be working on a quilt...although I should. I don't have anywhere to send the quilts, but I am in hopes of selling them to raise some of the money I need for the car. I will list this on in my blujay store once I get a photo of it tomorrow.

I hope they sell. You will find that if you start an occasional discussion and respond back to everyone your earnings will jump. Besides, if it is your own discussion you will usually have something to say about it. Looks like today is payday here.

Marsha, years ago when I created macrame items and sold them, I found UPS to be my best shipper, the most economical and convenient. They even picked up my outgoing parcels up right at my door! So you may want to call them to check their rates, too!

I can sure check it out. Last I used UPS, it was right about the same price as going through the post office. I just know the quilts are heavy so will cost to mail....I won't know just about how much until I actually sell my first one that has to be mailed. Thanks, Marsha
