Come on you guys, Everyone sounded excited about doing a valentine exchange but I only have two
ladies signed up.
I have been informed that this is the one place where everyone can sign up. I really would love to get everyone involved so it you aren't a subscriber you can still join in. Just post your name and that you want to join in and I will add you to the list.
It is going to have a theme of sorts which will allow you some leeway .
"HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS"
This is who I have so far. If you signed up and your name isn't on the list just holler at me, but not too loud please. Heheh
If I have you on the list and you aren't suppose to be there you can tell me quietly I messed up again . heheh
Now you can use that to you own interpretation
Your valentines can be stitched, painted, presented as a card,made as a doll, or any way you which to make your valentine.
One rule is, They must all be Hand Made. No exceptions this time. You of course may purchase your materials and decorate with purchased items but the Valentine itself must be hand made.
Sign up begins today and ends on the 15th of January. All Valentines must be mailed NO LATER then the 11th of February. You may want to check with your PO to make sure that the Valentine will arrive in time for Valentines Day.
The Value should be equal to in respect to each other so I am placing a $20 value. That could be considered time and materials but not postage.
Here are a few ideas
These are just something to stir the brain waves it hopes that the love starts to flow. hehehe
Please don't miss out on this fun Valentine Exchange.
Come on all you stitchers and quilters that said they want to be a part of it., Here is a chance for you to shine.
Gourd, I have a question... Do we make just one Valentine or one for everyone in the swap? A month is not very long to make a bunch of them, at least for me... At first I thought that there was no way for me to make several Valentines in the time frame, BUT, my mind started rolling the idea around and I do think I would like to give it a try. They won't be the same as if I had several months to work on them, they won't be as fancy, or elaborate. But, what the heck, sign me up!
I can't either this time. We are house/apt hunting and I have more or less packed up the sewing room. I only kept out the materials for the totes I make for the cancer kids. But I'll be following along...
You ladies are just wonderful. Norm and I were talking just this morning about how lucky we are between our real friends and our virtual ones. And when the two meet, it is fantastic.
Today we are cleaning out the bureaus and clothes closets and getting what is going ready to go to the clothes drop here in town. We do try to help where we can...
Ooooooooopps! Didn't know we had two threads going and I just sent out invites/ nags to several of you wonderful people who NOW I see have already said "no". Sorry about that!!! I do respect your decision, just didn't see this thread and was responding to the other one.
Sounds wonderful but alas I will need to sit this one out. Need to make some more dresses for my mom and getting things in order around the house just in case I do end up with surgery for the knee. Won't know for a couple of weeks yet. Good luck and will check in to see eveyone's creations
