Well I couldn't let you have a swap without an international person, so here I am. I am Sharon from Christchurch, New Zealand. I am a relatively new patchworker and totally rooky quilter but have sewn for years. I am currently doing my first exchange on the mug rug swap.... with someone who is also participating in this swap:o)
I would love a surprise in the post so am happy to recieve anything. My dining room and lounge decor are earthy type colours but I love shabby chic too and the use of linen in patchwork.
I am a SAHM with kids aged 14,13 and 10. I volunteer at our local St Vinnies thrift shop and love it when we get fabric and buttons and things donated, invariably I come home with more craft stuff and less money after doing a shift.
Hopefully I am not too late to join this swap. Its the 21st of Jan here so knowing that I am ahead of you in time here I should be ok
Welcome Kiwiquilter65! I'm so happy to meet so many new faces in this swap! I'm also participating in the mug rug swap, but have no idea who got me, lol. Your home sounds like ours (black, chrome, glass, and earthy colors) but I've slowly been bringing in more color as I change things. Luckily he likes it, so it's OK. :D
Yea a international person! Welcome and I am new to quilting g also, and doing the mug swap also. I had a mug rug made but I decided to make a different one so I am still working on mine.
OK, today's the day! Did everyone get in who wanted in? I know it's "irregular", but if you folks know someone who is on the fence, they have until 5pm central time to get their info to me & I'll still put them on the list.
As of now, we're at 17, a nice odd number. I was hoping for 20, but we can still have a good time!
OK, now a few reminders, as required by Miss PatriceJ:
I am required to insist that participants send me a monthly PM to verify that they are still active in this swap and are working on their promised project.
I am required to insist that participants notify me as soon as they have finished their quilt and are ready to mail it.
Once I have received notice that both partners are done and ready to mail, I will send both a PM to let them know it’s time to mail.
I am required to insist that all participants send me verification of shipment, to include tracking information.
So, as much as we all love being able to get these in the mail when they're finished, looks like we've been asked to hang on to them until we get the :thumbup: to ship or ship at your own risk, knowing your return item isn't completed yet. (I'm guessing this was added to our swap because of the number of late or unshipped items from previous swaps.)
For now....I owe, I owe, it's off to work I go!
Oh wow you are getting put to work dustysmom! sheesh hope you find you dont need to do all that policing and everyone plays nicely and does what they say they will do. I had this vision tht the group leaders know who are the culprits in that not shipping and wouldnt allow those to play. I mean if it happens once, sure if it happens twice ok what is the excuse this time but three times and your banned until you have completed all your obligtions.
me I will be tapping fingers done and ready to mail. lol. and welcome KIWI have we got some quilters here ready and willling to play with a kiwi. ok you got me howeverr at sah something or another.. can you put that in regular speak for me. I am a behind the timer. what the heck is that and is it painful? for those of you who put anything maybe one or two ideas would be sorta helpful. you might end up with a beaded coin bowl for your dresser in rainbow colors if your not a bit more specific. where are those beads anyways! and 17 ok who is doing two?
when will you post our partner? I am sooo! filled with ideas.. ready to get started!
Checking in and looking to see who my partner is and wondering what creative thing they are looking for.
Dabbler, I'll email everyone after work this afternoon....in about 5 hrs.
I can wait - have a gazillion other things to do first; this will be a fun swap - let the creativity begin.
OK, keep an eye on your mailbox.....the notifications will now begin!
