Christmas happened yesterday!!

I participated in this swap - kind of nervously!
CoLouR SwaP
If you are reading this page...
then you are interested in the "Colour Swap"
and that's GReaT !
This swap will require the sending of 4 items...
Something Edible...
Something Scented...
Something for a Room in the House...
Something Personal.

You can make (or purchase) any item you like, however ONE GIFT MUST be hand made.
ALL the gifts are to be in the colour of your randomly chosen partner's colour choice.

For this swap you may have to mail overseas... as it will be a "random" draw.

SO put your thinking caps on and decide on YOUR colour choice. Please keep it simple... colours like red, blue, green. pink or yellow etc.... nothing toooo specific.
When I open this swap up for registration, I'll allocate your partner asap after closing date... so you will get lots of time (probably more than a whole month) to create your "colours" package.

Until then... get the rainbow colours flowing in your head...
Organised by the lovely  http://stitchingcubbyhole.blogspot.com.au/  Cheryll.

Yes Shez first swap of this kind - I did do a quilted/art kind of postcard swap last year but got very disillusioned because people didn't bother to send cards or acknowledge what I sent to them. So I finished up at the change over time to a new group. Pumpkin is amazing - nearly lost him at work yesterday - he was very popular!! :-) I started calling Pumpkin she but I think she is a he now!!
