PostSubject: new projects starting in the new year ....    Thu Dec 19, 2013 12:34 am

i am planing a few things to start up in the new year ... 

mug rug swap .... fibre art postcard swap ... coaster swap .... all with multi themes ... and to run over a couple of months instead of each month ... a little longer to get stuff done should hopefully take the stress out of having to get stuff finished 


also i would like to do a 'friends' swap ... which will run over a 6 month period .... this is a long term commitment swap .. where you get a partner who you can contact and make friends with ...... and purchase or make them 7 gifts .. that start with the letters from the word ..  FRIENDS ....

like ... 

F ..... .. fat quarter bundle ... something made of flannel ... something 4 patched or foundation pieced  ... fabric .... felt .. or something made from felt like a needle book or a notebook cover ... or that could be used for the "N" ... the list goes on and on ... 

R ... runner .... raggy something ... red work ... red fabric ... rub-ons for scrappers ... reading items ... recipe book ... rose fabric ... ric rac .. ribbons ... . 

I... in the ditch ... ironing mat ... ink pads .... something made from inches .. like a tape measure .. or quilting ruler ... maybe an indigenous themed item ... or indigo coloured item ... 

E .... embroidered ??????????? ......... embellished ???????????? ... egg cup ... (personalised) envelopes ... Ear-rings .. 

N ..... needle case ... nine patched ... novelty prints used in ???? ... Notebook .. needles ... notions (lots of ideas there)

D ...... diagonal setting ???? ... dark chocolate .. die cut letters or shapes for scrapbookers ... dolls .. diary ... drink coaster .. drink (mug) rug 

S ....... sewing kit ... something strip pieced .... something scrappy ... sewing threads ... sewing case ... scrapbooking paper ... scrapbooking items ... Scissor Fob ... Scarf ... Soap ... Socks ... or just Something special ... 




The list is never ending and only up to your imagination and what you think your partner would love


there are rules like any other swap .. the main one being .. Please do not sign up unless you can honour the swap as we do not want to disappoint anyone ... there will be plenty of time to do this swap ... 



now if there is anything else that you could think of that you may like to share i would love to hear from you ... cos that is about as far as my brain will go at this time of night ..

if you wish to join the swap ... please email me ... answering the following questions ... 

Name ... 

Address ... 


Email address that can be forwarded to your partner .. 


Colours you like ... 


Colours you don't like ... 


Do you eat sweets .. lolllies .. chocolate .. biscuits .. 


Do you drink coffee .. tea .. alcohol ... 

Are you allergic to anything that your partner may send ... 

What sort of crafting do you enjoy doing ... 


Do you collect anything in particular or like something in particular .. 


is there anything you do NOT like ... 


are you happy to mail overseas ...

Just a question or three Bobbie..........

What would be the the start and finish dates (posting date/s) for this swap?
Do we post each item as we make them individually every month or at the end in one parcel?
Is there a dollar amount that we should be sticking to for the 7 individual letter items?

Curious one aren't I??
And I'm sure I will have more questions later ... but for now that will do....

And just a suggestion Bobbie to help lighten your work load..............

You could shorten the list you want us all to send to you by just getting us to email you:
Our name, address and email address and yes or no to sending overseas or not.

After we are paired up with our friend then we can email each other with the rest of the list.
That way we get to know our swap friend through direct interaction via emails?
And as a bonus for you there would be way less work to do???

I am interested but would like more information please before I commit.
I'll also be away for a day or two.......... but will race back in here asap for your reply.
