    Well....here we go again! Time for our next Magnet Swap :D
    The first one was such a success that I am hoping we can have even more fun this round. I am making the turn around time a bit shorter this round for a couple of reasons. One, it doesn't take long to make a magnet, and two, this way we can fit in a St. Patricks Day theme AND a Spring theme! :D
    So....just like last time, while quilting is our preferred medium, the magnets can be crocheted, painted, sewn, carved...whatever your talent is. The only difference is that we are starting to have themes and this round's theme is ST PATRICKS DAY so pull out your green and have fun!

    Here are the guidelines:
    1. Sign up by 11:59 PM on March 10th. Please do not sign up until you have your magnet(s) finished.
    2. I will have partners assigned on March 11th.
    3. The mail out due date will not be no later than March 15th.
    4. Magnets should not be larger than 4 square/diameter.
    5. Please make sure to enclose a note to let your partner know who you are.
    6. Once you receive your magnet, please make every effort to send a PM to me and your partner letting us know you received your magnet and thanking them.
    7. If possible, please post a picture of the magnet(s) you receive and a public thank you to your partner.
    8. Each person can do up to two magnets.
    9. This will be a direct person to person mailing. I will not collect mailing addresses. Once I've assigned the partners, they should exchange that information between themselves by PM.
    10. This swap will include international members, so if mailing internationally is a concern for you, please let me know in a PM.
    11. If you would like to participate, please PM me the following information:
    Screen name
    # of magnets that you want to swap (1 or 2)

    12. Please CAREFULLY read the guidelines for all swaps on the board at this link
    http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-20154-1.htm
    13. Here is our Activity Page that I will keep updated with who all is swapping, etc.:

    It doesn't HAVE to be green....it could be a rainbow leading to a pot of gold or red lips that say "Kiss me I'm Irish" if you can embroidery...OR Lucky Charms...LOL :D
