Thanks so much for all your wonderful supportive comments yesterday. Blogland is so wonderful at making me feel normal in my chaos, or at least helping me see the humor in it.
Thanks also for your swaperama interest. A little part of me was nervous that I would set it all up and no one would want to play with me.
So let's talk about the swap.
Each participant will sew, patchwork, crochet or knit one pincushion for their swap partner.
The pin cushion can be any dimension and size you want, but please try to make it as gorgeous as you possibly can.
There are zillions of pin cushion patterns and tutorials on the internet, ask Mr Google and see for yourself. Some of my favourites are Leonie's, Leah's, Spud and Chloe's and Lion Brand's.
Check out your swap partner's blog. See what sort of colors and style they use and then make a pin cushion that you think they would love. Please don't let them know that you are making their pin cushion though. Let it be a wonderful surprise when your package arrives.
If you would like to add a little something like chocolate or a packet of pins that is entirely up to you.
Sooooooooo, if this little pin cushion swap appeals to you, please leave me a comment on this post.
After you have left me a comment, please write me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know;
- your postal address.
- Your blog address.
- any specifics you might have e.g. a favourite colour, a preference for where you post to..
Just to make it clear, I need you to comment AND email me. That way I will have all of your details and am less likely to leave you out.
I will leave the entries open until Monday when I will email you your partner's details. Your pin cushion must be in the post no later than the 16th of April (one month from Tuesday).
If anyone has any idea how to make one of those sidebar buttons that people can display PLEASE contact me.
I am aiming to have links to all the participating blogs on my sidebar when we get going so we can all check out the wonderful pin cushions as they start to arrive.
I think I have covered everything, please let me know if I have missed out on anything.
Swap ya soon. XX
Entries for this swap are CLOSED!!
