Spring exchange

What to stitch?
Whatever Margaret Sherry's design you'd like and finish as you wish too!
+ add a little something for your partner - one item of your choice: threads, ribbons, buttons, stickers, something that says 'Spring'! :) hhehehehe

! Do not post photos before your partner receives your parcel, in your blog or here (let it be a surprise)
! When you post it on the mail, send an email to msherrylovers@gmail.com with a photo of all items you've sent
! Let me know when parcels have arrived so I can keep track of every parcel posted/received
! Make sure to say thanks to your partner too ;) As soon as you get a message from your partner, you can post pictures everywhere! :)

You can sign up until March 3rd
I will randomly make pairs and post them on March 4th (but you can start stitching today if you'd like)
Post deadline: March 21st

amber said...

I'm in! This sounds like fun and I haven't done an exchange before. Thanks for organizing Nia!

Cantinho da Lú said...

Hi Nia!
I'm in!

Jodi said...

I am in I just need the pattern e-mailed to me so I can start stitching. hehehe I am new at this, so do we stitch and then exchange it with an assigned friend? Where do I read the details? Can not wait to get my pattern. Love Margaret Sherry designs... Thanks for letting me join your group. I am hoping to get a subscription to the magazine soon too. I have found a few of her older patterns, just not the one I am looking for. Waiting to hear from you @ ajwinterton@juno.com :)

♥ Nia said...

Jodi you can stitch whatever design you'd like, free choice! :)
It's all in this post but maybe I can try to explain a little better =)

Each person choses a design to stitch, finishes into something (card, pincushion, sachet, pinkeeper, etc. these are only ideas, you can make another thing if you'd like)
On March 4th, the list of partners will be here on the blog, I will make a new post!
Then, you have to send it to your partner until March 21st (I will send all addresses by email)
More questions? :)

raquel said...

Olá! Gostava de participar mas, tenho receio de não cumprir o prazo... Ainda não bordei nenhum gato... já comecei mas...!
Nunca participei em nenhuma troca..

♥ Nia said...

Raquel... write in english please =/
Is nice for everyone to be able to understand all comments. Thank you!

Here it's important to make the deadline, if not, it wouldn't be fair for your partner =(
On SALs it's not a problem, the important is for everyone to have fun :) but exchanges we have to make the dates, or else.. someone will be waiting and waiting... not good =(

precidis said...

I know today is the 4th... but if you still need one more person - could I be the no. 14?


Rita said...

Anyway i wouldn't be able to keep in the deadline..maybe a next time :(
