    my vote would be a quarterly swap at the most or twice a year as ideal. that gives one time to plan & make one or two among all the other projects we are undertaking.

    Let's see, my vote would be monthly~~~because if it was quarterly we would have to wait sewwww long to get/send our pincushions. Although, probably quarterly is more practical. Do we have to be practical????

    I am with all of you whatever you decide. We do need this one more often though, and as some of you have said, any swap that is put up to monthly doesn't have to be done monthly, but is open to everyone monthly. I actually think that is so nice for more swap ideas too. Ok, so I also love these swaps. I have been learning so much more than if I wasn't part of this wonderful board. I always look forward to coming here.

    2 times a year for me is ok with me.....

    Havplenty - Thanks! My avatar picture is my spoiled mini-dachshund (on my lap, as I type); she really is a sweetheart. Your Samson is one very handsome feline!

    I love pincushions. I have made 7 this week. I was trying for 52 this year.
    One a week. My Mom fell fractured ribs, in hospital woulnd up having a pacemaker and etc...
    so I got side tracked and behind on my pincushionmaking. I am trying to play catch up.
    I would love one a month. That would be fantastic.

    I also received my two names.Plan on mailing them out on Monday and I cant't wait to see my two.I think every three months would be great for other pincushion swaps.
    Thanks for doing this swap Mariposa.
