Serviette Swap

Recently Carole from Madness and Mess held a paper serviette swap with members of the Journal class that she is running.
We had to send her 10 serviettes of the same design and in return she would send us back 10 serviettes that were all different.
What a great idea!
I recieved my bundle a few weeks ago and I have finally taken a photo of them to show you.
I have in my collection over 200 different designs and I was surprised to discover that I did not have one of any of the 10 that I received.
Thanks Carole for arranging the swap a novel idea indeed.




Today is set up day for the Embroiderers Guild annual Exhibition and tonight is the official opening---then I will be working non stop until late Sunday afternoon.
I'm exhausted already just thinkink about it.
See you next week----

The other week, I watched the ladies at our Guild unpack all the items that were brought in by members for our annual exhibition, so I have an idea of what is in front you! But it is fabulous to see what people have made - each parcel brought oohs and aaahs!
What do you do with your paper napkins? Or do you just collect them, and not use them in craft projects? I have some nice ones from Japan that you might like. Let me know!

Now there's a fab. offer from Gina Doreen - it would be rude not to accept an offer like that, wouldn't it?! Keep dreaming of all those lovely creative things you can do after the Exhibition, and the time will just fly by! I'm thinking of you .....!
