Ok Gang

I'm in --

There are too many of my crochetalong buddies in here to pass this one up !

Melissa - I know you've already had lots of questions, but here are 2 more-- can we only use ONE color for the square ( off the color list you made up )

and can we contact our person ahead of time for that month to ask them which color they'd prefer ?

I already signed up !!

Howdy to all my buddies and all the new people I don't know yet !:manyheart

Hi Norma

I think i'm just going to use one color and go strictly with the birthstone colors, so whatever stone it is that month , for those of you that are on MY list, that's probably the color you'll be getting ! :lol
There's an afghan pattern booklet out there called birthstone afghans . If any of you have it, it might give you some good ideas for colors !( I don't, but might try to get ahold of one ! )

Yes to both!! You are more than welcome to use only one of the colors listed. I've listed three colors for each to give some choices and variety--all three are birthstone colors, just different types of birthstones. And if you want to contact your group members for color preferences, that's perfectly fine as well.

Once the groups are formed, you'll have the e-mail addresses of your group members so you can contact them about color/pattern choice if desired.

Everyone will have to contact me for shipping addresses when you're ready to ship. Just trying to keep the swap running smoothly. :manyheart

Brie, I got your info. Juli, I need you to go put in your info again, please. :D I had a coding mistake when you signed up; I fixed it though and need your info.

Everyone, please make sure when you get to the sign-up page that its "samsignup.pl" and not "samsignup.html" as the html page isn't working really well...

Yes. It went straight to the database like it was supposed to. There was a glitch in the script before, but I got it fixed before Brie signed up.

How do I know? :eek I've already done it and now when I go to the sign up page it is the html one.... please let me know if you do not have me. Thanks! :hook

Cindy M

P.S. Since you've had problems, and I'm paranoid I won't get in, I'm signing up on the .pl page, so if you have me twice you can take one of me off and then put me in time out in a corner for messin' with your system.

Hi Cindy -

Don't worry, it looks to me like you made it on the list. If you go back to page 1 of this thread, Melissa made a list of who all is signed up and you're on it!
