Take Your Partners By The Hand

Well here we go, the swap closed at midnight last night so first thing this morning I had Milo picking names out of tubs. I put everyone from the UK in one and everyone not from the UK in another. I so hope I haven't missed anyone off. Two ladies, Laurie and Tanya, I'm sorry but I have been unable to include you. You both said you would like to participate , I replied to your requests on my Blog but neither of you have replied back and this was the only way I had to get in touch with you as neither of gave me a blog or an e-mail address.

Are you ready - here we go

Sarahs House and Rhondamum
Brigantia Designs and Kingdom Of The Birds
Louise @ Home Is Where The Heart Is and Some Of A Kind
Miss Sew n Sew and Linaloo
Just Original and Bon Souvenir
French Knots and
Don't Look Now
Linden Grove and Lululollylegs
Driftwood and Rachel Rabbit
Periwinkle and Jellywares
Sew Funky and Alas 3 Lads
Upstate Lisa and My Little Space
Thyme And Lavender and Bits And Odd Pieces Of Mindys Kingdom
Moss Stitch and As Is Proper
One Voluptuos Cat And Some Yarn and Fiona from Nz.

I am waiting for Fiona to give me some details but if I don't hear from her in the next couple of days I will do the swap with Voluptuos Cat myself. Hope that is okay with everyone?

There are just a few rules to follow............

1) Find out what type of magazine your partner would like.
2) Let your partner know when the magazine has been posted.
3) Let your partner know when your magazine has been recieved.
4) All magazines should be recieved by December 7th ( post depending of course).
5) If anyone has any problems please let me know and if you could also let me know when you have recieved your magazine .

I've left it open until December just in case anyone wants Christmas magazines.

I hope everyone has fun with this as I've never done a swap before so I'm bound to have got something wrong somewhere!!!!! Thank you to all the new people I have met too, it's great to meet you all and hopefully I'll get around to reading your blogs soon.

Also one thing I have learned from this is that there is a Blog just for swaps Go check it out.

Now this picture has no relevance at all to the swap - I just liked it :-)

Hi there, Hope I haven't missed an e-mail from you asking for the info that you want. Sorry if I have. I don't seem to be able to email you so that's why I'll just comment here and let you know that I'll contact my partner in the next couple of days. 3 boys to get to bed here at the moment! I don't have a blog either which I hope is OK.

Kind regards

Hopefully the person concerned will get bored. What great finds at the charity shop. (I didnt like to leave my comment on your giveaway as this is the first time Ive visited and that would be abit of a cheek) but will definately visit again. Mandy X
