Default September 2019 Pincushion Swap

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to the September 2019 Pincushion Swap. Sorry for the late posting again but we were waiting for one pincushion from the last swap to be acknowledged as it's recipient was galavanting around Europe (you know who you are - Marion - LOL LOL).

You must be signed up by the 30[SUP]th[/SUP]September 2019 as partners names will be sent out between 1st and 2nd October 2019. You must have mailed by the 8th October 2019. This is a hard and fast deadline - no excuses. You must also please let me know when you mail and when you receive... this is so I can make sure that everybody receives a pincushion.

This is a personal choice swap so you can make any type of pincushion that you would like to.

Before signing up, please read the rules below:

Rules

As with all swaps there must be rules so here are ours!

1. This is a secret swap.
2. This is not a partnered swap so you may not receive from the person you send to.
3. Everybody on the board is welcome to take part.
4. This will be a bi-monthly swap (6 in a year) – you only take part in the months that you sign up for.
5. If you commit to taking part you must send out a pincushion… no excuses!
6. If you encounter a problem or issue, you must let me know immediately; there is nothing that cannot be sorted and re-organised if you communicate.
7. You are only committed to send a pincushion…. You may, if you wish send other items, but please do not expect to receive anything more than a pincushion.
8. Be kind to the person you receive from… we are all at different levels of experience on this board and we need to encourage each other… so if you receive an item from a less experienced stitcher - just appreciate the time and love that has been put into making it.
9. You must mail your item by the deadline above... no excuses.
10. The main rule is to have fun making and receiving some lovely creations.

Sign-ups will start now and close on the 30[SUP]th[/SUP]September 2019 for this round.

When signing up, please let me know if you have a nut allergy as some people fill their pincushions with walnut shells.

So come on, join in and have some fun!

Hugs

Caroline

I am in as well! I have gotten some new patterns I want to try. It may take me a while, so I will get started this afternoon. But first, I need some different fabric, so I will have to go shopping, rats.

Hello Everyone,

I am so sorry that I have been MIA for the last few weeks...... but things have been a little manic here. Joe, by sweetie was rushed into hospital a couple of weeks ago and of course he became my priority.... happily is is home now and whilst not totally recovered (he decided to come out in shingles too) he is on the mend. We have at the same time had a cat that hasn't eaten for 12 days - 7 visits to the vet and £800 later - all they can come up with is a suspected UTI and a lesion in his mouth. We have now had to have his urine cultured in the lab and will get the results on Tuesday. But the worst of all is today... my baby went off to university. Now... this has been the saddest, happiest, proudest moment of my life all rolled into one. Emma worked so hard to be accepted in Imperial College London to study Chemical Engineering... and I am so proud of her, but I miss her so much already and it has only been four hours since we left her. Of course, we have had to prepare and shop for uni whilst everything else was going on.... so as you can imaging... a busy time.

Still enough moaning from me... on to the swap.

At present we have the following members taking part.....

Aurora

But there is still room for more and you have a couple of days to sign up still.

Hugs

Caroline

I felt the same when my daughter went to university but I wanted you to know that it ended up as a wonderful experience. We watched her blossom from the girl we dropped off into a capable and wonderful woman. She met friends from all over the world and it has been so fun to watch her find her way in life.

Hi Everyone,

So sorry for the delay, but you should have your names now...... as the names went out a little late the new mailing deadline is 7th October 2019. Please remember that this is a secret swap so the only way we know who we are receiving from is if you pop a note in with your pincushion....!

If you think you should have received a name and haven't please get in touch asap.... I am only human and I do make mistakes (a lot - LOL LOL).

Okay everyone, let the fun begin.

Hugs

Caroline
