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 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 Kaye 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 in this post ONLY on BOTH BLOGS if you wish to enter
- - 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 our blogs).
