Here is a sneak peak at my stitchery swap project. The complete project will be heading to its new owner tomorrow. Thanks to all who participated in the swap. Several of you have said you would like to do it again. I will probably do one after the New Year. Many of us have joined Chookyblue's Secret Santa Christmas Swap and I don't want to overlap swaps.
However, I am hosting a Football Season Nickel Swap for my Quilting Sports and Friends Group that doesn't conflict with the Secret Santa Swap. This is a nickel swap where you choose a football team to sponsor for the entire football season. For every game your team wins you do nothing. For every game the team loses you agree to send 8 nickels to the winner. At the end of the season you will send me all of your losing packages and I will swap them out and return your "winnings" to you. I still have some room for a few more players so if you'd like to join send me an e-mail and I will provide you the details.
I received my Pay It Forward gift from Floribunda. It's a gorgeous rotary cutter case - or is it for eye glasses? Either way it's gorgeous. DH commented that quilters sure like to make and use tote bags and carrying cases. I think he's right.
This past week I also received a needlecase from a swap for my redwork group. What a cute case. I haven't filled it yet, but will soon.
It amazes me how prolific bloggers are. During the week I can hardly keep up with all the entries. I read many of them and mark them, but often don't comment until the weekend when I am relaxing. Maybe with summer ending I'll have more time to stay caught up with everyone.
