Summer Holiday Exchange

 
Holiday time!
Perfect for spending time doing whatever you want!!
Which for me is ... cross stitching of course
 
So, I've decided to organise a
Summer Holiday Exchange!!
 
Want to join the fun???
Just leave a comment confirming you wish to take part
and email me your address, so we know where to send your goodies
 
The good news is that there is no theme
Afterall it is the holiday time, so you can be creative free
How cool is that?
 
Only 3 requirements:
You must include at least one stitched piece to your exchange
You must send your goodies by the 15/09/2013 at the latest
No drop out, please stay committed to be fair to all participants
 
 
I will confirm the names of the participants on the 15/07/2013.
and will draw names & let you know
who you will be sending your little RAK to
 
So get your needles at the ready!
 
Happy Stitching!
Mii x

  1. Dear Mii,
    please count me in. This will be my first exchange, and I'm looking very much forward to it :)
    (Maybe I'm a bit "newborn" to it, but what does RAK mean? )
    Regards,
    Edina

    3. Sorry if I'm bugging you, but I have a question: are specialty stitches okay? I know they're not "technically" cross-stitching, so I wanted to double-check with you first.

    4. Hi Sarah! I'm sure no one will mind if you want to include speciality stitches! I'm sure your finished little project will be lovely :)
