    Never let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.

    I have a box of "fabric postcard" supplies that has pretty
    much everything I need for making them.
    Only problem is I don't know where to locate the box in my
    sewing/craft junk.

    LOL

    Ladies, I would like to introduce you all to CookieZenmilk. In January, I am going to pass on the reins to the Postcard Swap to Cookie. She is a long time member of the Quiltboard, a great swapper and an experienced swap coordinator. I will also continue to swap postcards will you all. I am hoping to move onto some other swap experiences next year. (Which I need to receive permission from the coordinators before I post about anything.) I think Cookie's going to do a great job and I'm excited to see what direction she'll take the Postcard Swap in. I hope you all will be supportive of her. I know I will be one of her greatest fans. I LOVE our Postcard Swap!

    Thank you CookieZenmilk for stepping in. If there is anything you need from me, please don't hesitate to ask.

    Ladies, all the themes I set from now until January will remain exactly the same.

    Oct. One Word
    Nov. Fantasy Trees
    Dec. Happy Birthday (Really make this one special for your partner.) It will be something to treasure every birthday.

    I have YEARS (ok maybe just a couple) of experience with
    Cookie running FPC swaps.

    I do have a question for Cookie.

    Will you be tossing in some "wacky" holiday options? Those
    were so totally my favorites to make.

    I am off to a good start for the October Postcard swap. Have my idea planned and have started to gather the bits and pieces I need to make the project.
