Thankyou so much for the quick response. I have checked out the internet in relation to Fabric Postcards and I am even more inspired to have a go. I would love it if you could include me in the Halloween swop. Just one other question, Is it standard practice to just mail them on their own? Even in the international postage system!
Do I have to sign up anywhere else or is this ok.
Many thanks for all your help with atc's i have been out today craft shopping and i have ordered some fabric sq's im hopefully going to make a few atc's and put them up for a swap and see what happen's i will of course be joining in the group swap when i have enough courage how long do you have to make your atc before the deadline ?with the paper one's it was about a a month the only reson i asked was that i will be a bit slower with the fabric ones
once again many many thanks for your help and time have a nice weekend
Thanks for the info. Got up this a.m. all enthused to do some monoprints. Got the stuff all out and then we shall see if any can be 'magic mushrooms.
btw.... I have never received anything from aVni. Thought I would let you know.
hugs from Canada
Oh, I meant maybe there was a list for you to send a message out to the other members of the trading group to try and get more members to participate. I'll just post a message to my new swap for August.
This is a great way to make new friends!
I just feel horrible and see what I can do today for Lorna, but Lorna I did send you a post card..lol someone in my other group did not get theres, I guess..not funny but all I can say is sorry...hugs, to all..Lorraine
I sent one to joy atc and sent Lorna a post card..so guess I mess up on both groups...sorry Lorna, hope this will be fine as I am in a health issue right now and won't do any more than I have to..if you wait awhile you will receive on from me...promise..how did I do this..I copied what ever everyone posted here..I am on a pc swap and atc swap...I did both and sent Joy and Lorna..so sorry..I think I will stay out of swaps for now till the pills I am taking are out of my system..not blaming them..lol so now I better go check out the post card swap and see what I did wrong there..its going to be one of those days, I just feel it and it is only 8:02 in the morning, Memphis, Tn time...have a great day, hugs, Lorraine.
Thanks Gina E. for the welcome. I joined stitchinfingers a while back and I haven't been visibly active at all. Other than Hand Embroidery this is the only group I've attached myself to.
I picked my needle back up this year after I got back envolved with crocheting which led me to the internet which led to stumbling upon some lovely embroidery. I've drooled over every form of embroidery that I could possibly find on the web and once thought that cross stitch was a bit too confined for what I was interested in. Also I purchased a new chart and freshened up my floss stash (I did cross stitch many years ago) only to discover I could no longer see the weave on the fabric to know where to poke my needle. After some major lusting and the purchase of several pairs of reading glasses I have since then had a full about face on that sort of thinking because I have fell in love with too many projects that somehow I must at least start some day if even I never finish. All of this has given me a new thrill and I stay excited all the time. The only problem besides not being fast enough is this terrible problem I have with not being able to refrain from starting "another new project". PSS (project starters syndrome)? or does it already have a name?
