Package from Kristie


I got your package in the mail yesterday afternoon. I would have posted sooner but couldnt figure out how. Debb showed me the way (thanks Debb). So anyway the package was great. What a fantastic first swap experience it was for me. I am excited to try out this pattern. I just need to run to the store to get some purse handles to match and some needles because it calls for the one size needles I don't have. The stitch markers are beautiful, much nicer then the plastic ones that I have been using. I am anxious for my kids to go to bed so I can start reading the book too it looks like it is going to be a good one.


Thanks so much,

Cindy

Debbie M

I just got home from mailing your package at the post office I hope that you like it.

I just went to the mailbox yesterday after I got my hubby home from hospital. I am sorry for not picking it up sooner. Everything was wonderful!!! Can't wait to make the shawl. And I love the movie "Pay It Forward". Wonderful selection. I got stickers, natural colored yarn by bernat and a new crochet hook. I also received a grow kit of marigolds. I also got a cool card and a photo album. thanks again.

Partners are Assigned for June



Partners are up!!!

June = is the beginning of Summer: Trivia or fact: There's no better crocheting or knitting than crocheting or knitting in natural light. No other season gives us as many natural light hours in a day as summer. Summer's take-along projects can turn into winter's completed holiday gifts

You will send your partner:

  • A pattern for 1 cotton design [cool and fun] Tote Bag for your yarn, or bag, or any item themed after your novel, EX: Gone with the Wind, Harry Potter, Marilyn Monroe, the Devil Wears Prada, think of all the possibilities of a great "summer" read. [ your project will have the colors or style relating to what the book is about]
  • Enough Yarn to complete the project
  • All the notions required
  • The novel to go with your themed project,
  • Something to put in your bag, or go with your project chosen, Ex: folding scissors, measuring tape, hooks or needles, stitch markers, or if something else maybe a vintage style pin with a hat project, or a magnet or key chain or even a DVD, anything themed after your novel. Ohhh what fun!
  • Something sweet or salty
  • Some ice tea mix, with splenda or sweetener, or to go
  • An insulated cup [summer colors]

All packages need to be sent by the end of the month....

...Happy Swapping!!!

Finally...I couldn't find my camera so I took a pic with my cell phone and then had to figure out how to get the pic off my cell phone...anywho...I want to thank Kristie for my wonderful package. I love, love, love the shawl pattern and the yarn. I also receive a set of needles, a candle, a photo album, a journal, some old movies, flower seeds, and tea. Everything was very thoughtful. I have to wait until next spring to plant the flowers. Thank you so much.
