Friends Swapaway

This is a joint blog post from Kaye - Kitten Stitching - and Kim -Wisdom with Needle and Thread.  Yep – we’re waving at you!! ;0)

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).

    1. HI, Carm - I/we can't reply to you personally, as it seems you are a "no-reply blogger". Kaye and I would love to throw your name in the hat for the draw, but I/we can't reach you. If you could please send along your email address, that would be most appreciated.
