Do you love Cross Stitch?

Then this is the swap for you!

1) Make 1 cross stitch design with a design area no smaller than approx. 5cm x 7cm and no larger than approx. 10 cm X 15 cm or equivalent.

2) Consult your partner's profile and consider what they may be able to use your cross stitch for, ie do a mini design(s) or repeated motifs so it can be cut smaller for ATCs or a larger design that can be made into a card, quilt, mug rug, bookmark or biscornu. Let your partner have the fun of choosing how to finish the item so that we can keep this to flat postage.

3) Extras are not called for or expected, but if you wish to send an extra please keep it related to the craft at hand.

4) This MONTHLY SWAP(when you are available to participate) is sender’s choice. Cross Stitch can take a bit of time. You might need to start these little treasures right away, so get right to it and you'll have them out in plenty of time. Enjoy letting your creative juices flow!

5) Send a note with warm wishes and explain your choice of design and any thoughts you had as to how to use it. Please be sure to include the name of this swap and your Swap-bot ID.

Participant Screening:

Must be able to cross stitch.

Must have a fully completed profile (not just a few lines).

Must have completed 3 swaps, have a 4.9+ status and no unexplained 1 or 3’s. Newbies will be accepted upon the hostess's review.

I will list all flakes and will angel, but I trust that won’t be necessary.

I have the pleasure of co-hosting this monthly swap with @Net3811 my swap mate in the "Land Down Under." We both love cross stitch and share or hostess duties by running the swap everyother month. So far we've seemed to have gathered a wonderful groupof stitchers, but there is always room for more. Come join the fun!

Unfortunately, I must ask my fellow Canadians not to join the swap this month due to the postal strike. I live fairly close to the states and I have a friend who works across the border who will mail things for me, but that is not usually the case. Canadian swappers please contact me prior to joining. Thanks, LPV.

As for me receiving my partner's cross stitch swap that they send me, I promise to not rate down if they are late, which I never really do anyway, because if they are late it will be due to the strike.

Welcome everyone - we have a lovely hostess and some great repeat swappers!

I'd be love to participate, but because of the strike it's impossible. Very sad...

If you get me as a partner please do not mail my swap to me untile the postal strike here in Canada is over. Thanks! As I said above I will not rate down.

I went to post something to Canada today from here in the UK and was told they are not accepting any mail to Canada due to the backlog!

Please do not worry no Canadian will rate you down this Summer due to the strike. Please try a different postal station in your area on a different day and please do inform them that the strike has been over now for at least a week. When your country allows you to mail it then we know that you will mail it.

I will be taking a break from hostessing until January 2012. I have been very busy and need to get a good deal done in my life. I'd like to thank those who have participated in the swaps I have held and will look forward to seeing you all again in the new year. I need a break from Swap-bot for a while.
