My apologies for not following through with this earlier - my 96 year old mother in law has come to live with us so I can care for her, and I feel like my life has slowed to a crawl!
I have had five responses to my suggestion for an ATC swap -
Susan and Juliette in England, Mary Lou in Canada, and Maya and Pallavi in India.
As I posted earlier, I have some of my own ATCs ready to swap. So I need to know if you ladies would all be happy to swap with me, or would prefer to swap with each other? I have already had exchanges with Susan, Mary Lou, and Maya, so if you girls would prefer to swap with somebody else, here's your chance. (Speak now or hold your peace!) I'm happy to swap with you again if you wish.
OMG!!!!! Guess I didn't explain myself very well! I meant that I would send one of my ATCs to each of you, and you would all send me one. Greedy, huh? But I like your responses much better - this is really super of you all to agree to making 5 ATCs so we will all receive a bunch of them in the mail! Maya is the only one who hasn't replied yet, but I know she is a very experienced ATC person, so I'm sure she will be eager to have five of them done.
Now, how do we do this...Perhaps if you all send me your postal address, and I will email you all back with a complete list. That way, you can each send off your ATCs to everybody on the list. Susan, Mary Lou and Maya - I have your addresses from a previous swap, so unless you have moved since then, don't worry about resending me your address.
So I just need Juliette and Pallavi to send me their addresses direct to my email:
Sorry I had not checked my mail for a couple of days, so you did not hear from me.
I'm fine with swapping with all in the group. so I'll get to work making the 5 ATC's and wait for addresses.Is there a theme?
Gina my address is the same and so also my email, I have yours.
That's great shall wait to hear from you Gina.
Lovely to hear from you again, and I hope you are fully recovered after your stint in hospital. I didn't suggest a theme - didn't even think of that, to be honest. I just had my own ATCs sitting here waiting for a swap opportunity, decided to ask for any takers on here, and there you all were, waiting for me!
NO!!!! Please don't post your personal details on any website, Juliette! I'll add you to my "Friends" list on My Page, which means you and I can send messages to each other via Stitchin Fingers, but they won't be seen by anyone else.
Great! I have the list of addresses for the six of us now. I will email it to you direct to your email address if I have it, or to your Stitchin Fingers mail box. All you have to do is send one of your ATCs to each person on the list (other than yourself of course!), and when the ATCs start arriving at your home, perhaps you can post a message here so we can all share in the excitement ;-)
Please let me know if you haven't heard from me within 24 hours, as I am going to email the lists off in a minute, but I know that sometimes emails get held up in cyberspace for a while.
