Anyone for a Christmas Exchange?
It is raining and cold and soooooo not like August weather; not as we would want it anyway. I finally have my stitching bug back: not sure if it is because of the cold weather or the beta blockers I am on rofl (another story)...and I got to thinking about christmas. You know how it goes: one minute you are counting crosses, the next you are working out where to put the christmas tree.
And then I started to think about the nice things I usually do at christmas, and how much I missed out on last Christmas because of illness. So I would like to make up for it.
I would like to host a 12 days of Christmas exchange with a difference. The 12 days begin 12 days before Christmas and each day has a hand made, wrapped gift which can hang on a christmas tree. The 12th Day is Christmas Eve and can be a little more special, so the tree is completed in time for Christmas. The 12 days of Christmas-Tree Exchange. Items can be stitched, sewn or anything hand made (but some should have a needle and thread in there somewhere). All gifts should be received by DECEMBER 1st (so if real life happens and someone can't fulfill their exchange, I have time to make things for the recipient).
What do you think? If you are interested (bearing in mind it is quite a big commitment) please email me on stitcheranonatyahoodotcodotuk. This will be an international exchange.
There...I have done it. Operation ' this christmas will be ace' is up and in action lol.
Oh and dont forget my giveaway: previous post!!!
