My first swap

I just joined the Candlelight mat swap from Quilters Gallery. I am so exited, this is my first ever swap.

Do I hear, SWAP, what SWAP? The basics are pretty basic: you register, you produce a candlelight mat and you send it to your partner A and you receive one from your partner B (known or secret).

Simple! So what’s so exciting about it?

First, I have to work on a deadline.
Second, I am sewing for somebody I do not know but has the potential to become a friend.
Thirdly, somebody, with the potential to become a friend, is making something for me.
Fourthly, my partners can be anywhere in the world, yes – the whole world.
Fifthly , it is my first time.

O M G, O M G, I am SO excited! (Oops already said that :)

If you want to join, the link is here : registration form, pattern, instructions

    Mais vous êtres française ! c'est l'habitude d'écrire en anglais qui me fait utiliser cette langue que j'aime.

    Bon courage à bientôt,
