The Swap is ON!

Well the show last weekend was kind of slow but definitely lots of fun. Wonderful friends getting together to turn my humble abode into an amazing art gallery for a could it not be fun? I'll post some pictures from the actual show this weekend but for now I wanted to get to the 'Swappin' that I promised!

So Swappin' Fun Time!
First off I want to give credit where it is due and say that I absolutely lifted this idea from Jo over at The Cart Before the Horse blog...a wonderful, magical place that is one of my favorites to visit and if you have not been there do yourself a huge favor and go check it out as soon as you're finished here...I only hope that I can do as good a job of organizing as she did because she made it such fun! Of course being the complete fiber-aholic that I am this idea was too good not to share, maybe one of you will be the next to pass it on?

Okay here are the rules:
Cut four 9x9 inch squares from five different fabrics (100% cotton only, please). That's 20 squares in all. (You can easily get four 9x9 inch squares from a quarter yard or a fat quarter.)
Try to send fun interesting fabrics ...the kind that are so hard to resist. I'll gather them together, shuffle them up in a precise pattern known only to me because I haven't figured it out exactly yet, and send out 20 new pieces to everyone! Who could resist a plethora of riches like that? So the first 19 people who respond that they want to play will be in...don't forget to include your email so I can send you my address and the fun can begin!

I uploaded a BUNCH of new stuff to the shop this week, with more to come, so drop by for a visit and we'll have a cuppa tea! Well it will be virtual tea but the sentiment is there.

  6. Your swap sounds like so much fun!! I totally wish I was a fiberholic too, so I could play. Being a metalhead, I don't seem to fit in this one, though. =)
