As usual if you want to swap in Sept...???? then comment here and I will add you to the Sept. Swap list...
The theme for this month will be a lot of fun because you choose:...
Surprise Me Month, Trivia: To possess a white elephant was regarded(and still is regarded, in Thailand and Burma) as a sign that the monach was ruling with justice and the kingdom was blessed with peace and prosperity. Because the animals were considered sacred and laws protected them from labor, receiveing a "gift" of a white elephant from a monarch was both a blessing and a curse: a blessing because of the animal's sacred nature and a curse because the animal could be put to no practical use.
You will send your partner:
- A surprise pattern for a ???
- Enough yarn for the project
- All the notions required
- A fancy pen or pencil
- A package of stationery
- A pattern booklet or stitching Novel. [any kind like Liesure Arts publishes, or a book by Debbie Macomber or Maggie Sefton]
- A surprise "White Elephant"gift???? [something you have that is handmade]
Have fun and remember the package needs to be mailed by the end of the month and you must include at least all the above items to swap!!!

I have a vegetable garden in the summer; that's about the only gardening I do because the deer and wild turkeys eat everything else! I've been swapping for quite a few years and have learned to limit myself to just a few swaps at a time so that it continues to be fun and not stressful!
Ah...just like me!!! :)
