Hello lovely blogging friends,
The two of us have enjoyed an online stitching friendship for quite a while now. We have been involved in a number of swaps and giveaways (“Kim is an awesome Swap Mama” says Kaye). We love having a chat via email and Facebook. Isn’t social media a wonderful thing when it is used for good and allows you to make friends from all around the world?
A while ago, we mistakenly thought that we had the same Blogaversary, unfortunately we didn’t due to a Blogger error. However, in our initial excitement over this we conceived a plan to do a combined Swapaway. We have decided to go ahead and do this anyway, despite the Blogger mistake.
Now, what is a Swapaway, you ask?
Well, using that old chestnut, the ACROSTIC, we are going to create or source wonderful gifts for each other using the word FRIENDS. We will send each other a gift for each letter. This is the Swap part.
But, we are not stopping there. One lucky bloggy, stitchy friend (chosen at random) will receive a gift for each letter of the word FRIENDS, from EACH OF US. So, they will receive FOURTEEN gifts altogether.
As Kim and I are committing to making or sourcing a lot of gifts for each other and our lucky recipient, this will be a long term swap and we are looking at exchanging the gifts around Valentine’s Day next year (it seemed appropriate to us).
So here are the guidelines for YOU - our Stitching Sisters – and how you could be the recipient of the Swapaway:
- You must be a follower of BOTH our blogs (we will check ;))
- Place a comment on the SWAPAWAY POST of BOTH BLOGS if you wish to enter the draw
- We have to be able to reach you, so you need to have a valid email address.
- You don’t need to have a blog to enter.
You have until October 1st to enter (but remember you must comment on the Swapaway post on both of our blogs).
Here is the link to Kim's Swapaway blog post for you.
So, please join in the fun,
P.S. Now, don't forget to check out my Travelling Pattern post if you are interested in being the next person to stitch Bent Creek's Land of Liberty, it closes next Sunday, 21st September.
