For members who want to join in an exchange of cards, bookmarks,biscournes and other fun stitching and sharing.

Easter Stitched Egg Swap?

by kell » Fri Jan 22, 2010 4:04 pm

I know a bunch of members did the mitten swap last year, well there's a whole bunch of egg designs too nd I wondered if anone would like to take part in a similar swap with those.

Basic egg shape
Egg Designs

Easter falls on 4th April this year.

THE "RULES"
- You can use any of the designs on the link, or you can design one yourself using the outline template.

- You can use any count of fabric / perforated paper / whatever you like. Your only limit (size-wise) is the outline design of the egg.

- You can finish it howeve you like - ATC, bookmark, bag, ornament, coaster - the only limit is your imagination!

- You can stitch it at any time, but you must be finished (and indicated on this thread that you have finished) stitching by Friday 26th March in order to send it out for 4th April.

- On Friday 26th March, everyone who has indicated they have finished stitching will be allocated another person who has also finished, giving them a full week or so to get the address of that person and post it so that it should stand a very good chance of arriving with the recipient by 4th April.

- Anyone who has not indicated that they have finished stitching by 26th March will be assumed to have pulled out and not be allocated anyone, I'm afraid, as I want to make sure that all who send will also receive.

Here is the list of participants with who everyone is sending to. Each person will send to the next person on the list (which was drawn by my lovely hubby - I actually forgot to put my own name in, so I've put myself at the bottom of the list - I'm such a ditz!).

You are responsible for getting the address for your recipient so drop them a PM asking for contact details. Hopefully the majority of the eggs will arrive with their recipients in time for Easter on 4th April, so please do respond to your address request promptly and post your egg as soonas possible. I know not all the eggs will arrive by that time, but I hope most of them will.

Please post to let everyone know when you have sent and received your eggs.

There's a SNOWMAN EASTER EGG on page 7 (Rose, hear that?)

Better remind everyone how the mitten swop was done?

You can see the mitten swap thread here: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=5564&hilit=mitten+swap" target="_blank

The mittens were finished in a variety of ways, so I guess the egg finishing would be up to the individual too.

As for size, you could use any count of fabric - the size is only limited by the stitch count. You would either choose one of the designs from the site or use the outline and design your own egg within those confines.

So that's 2 definite "yes"es (me and Megandmog).

What say if we get at least half a dozen, we start stitching?

Are any of the other posters definite "yes"es?

Well, that's 6 definites, so I guess we can start stitching. Shall we say, have them finished for the end of March so we can send them in time for Easter on 4th April?

You can finish it however you like - with the mitten swap we had ornaments, coasters, bookmarks, bags - all manner of different things. You could do it as an ATC if you wanted to, but you don't have to - it's up to you.

You can stitch it any time you like, so long as it's ready at the end of March to be sent out for Easter, which is 4th April.
