PostSubject: 3rd Annual Christmas Block Swap!!!!   Thu Sep 27, 2018 2:48 pm

Yeah, it's time again for a block swap. This will be our third year. It's a fun theme this year............

Ugly Christmas Sweaters !!!!!!!!!!!!  

The gaudier the better! Decorate them any way you want...add rickrack, sequins, buttons, bows...embroider them, paint them, just have fun with them! These don't take a lot of time. They are small, you are only making one. So please, join us for some Christmas fun.

Basic rules apply:
make one 12 1/2" block,
sandwich it,
quilt it,
decorate it,
bind it,
sign it,
and mail it....

I'll send out the basic pattern when the sign up ends. We need as many participants as possible to make it fun for everyone. So don't wait..SIGN UP ASAP!

Remember, they need to be mailed early enough that your recipient receives their ornament around the first of December so that they can enjoy it during December. For most of us, that is about one week, for our overseas friends, you need to allow about 2 weeks minimum. You have until the middle of October (roughly 2 weeks) to sign up.


Here we go:
1) Mary Ann
2) Cassie
3) Helen
4) Laura
5) TxMusicMom
6) Jill
7) Memaw
8) Golo
9) Linda
10) FiberBabble
11) Marynel
12) Redmadder
13) Gwennie
14) Kany
150 Louanne

As the New Zealand Prime Minister said in her speech to the UN the other day, "Me Too should be We Too" sounds right for swap fun as well Very Happy

Here is a novel idea FB, why don't you take something you have been wanting to do, not something you should do, should finish, feel guilty about etc. Take something you have wanting to be 'naughty' and start, work on or make. I have lots of those kinds of things and lots more reasons why I cant start them because of this, that, and the other. Leave this, that, and the other at home and have some fun, a retreat is a party in my mind, go party and have fun!!
