stitch swap: mailing time

mailing

I can hardly believe how fast this month has gone by. It's not quite over yet, but it will be soon.

For those who are in the Stitch Swap, this is a friendly reminder that the 31st is coming up, which means it's time to get your piece in the mail! I know that many of you already have mailed and even received your swap embroidery, and a few have had some extenuating circumstances delaying mailing. The rest are working and waiting excitedly! Do keep in mind that some of these are traveling a great distance, so it could take a little while for them all to arrive.

If you're not in the Stitch Swap: A) Don't worry...there will be another one in the fall, so you'll have another opportunity to participate! B) Take a look at the pool of amazing work that these swappers have been stitching!

I mentioned it on Flickr, but I need to say it here too. There is much talent being expressed with this swap, and even though I'm only the host, I feel a bit like a proud mother hen. Well done, everyone!

  1. I found your blog when I searched for embroidery basics. Your tutorials were just what I was looking for. I can't wait to start my new patterns.

    I spent the last week reading through the whole archive. I'm sad I missed the swap by so little, but glad to hear here will be one in the fall.

  3. Thank you, Mollie for the swap. It was so much fun and the embroidery pieces have been amazing! I can't tell you how much I enjoyed doing this. The swap I received was lovely. I mailed mine yesterday and am eagerly waiting for my partner to get it. I hope she likes it. I can't wait for the fall swap!

  5. Like Carmen, I'm also a beginner and love your blog. I'm going to use your free patterns for some practice hoops so I can get my skills up and maybe join the Fall swap.

    Thanks for sharing your cute patterns and for great tutorials.

  10. Mine was mailed out today. It was done ages ago but a family emergency intervened. Did you see, Mollie, that it was featured on Craft Gossip?

    1. Thanks for your kind comments, Mollie. I have to say that I really appreciate the comments I have received from this swap. I work in relative obscurity and to have other embroiderers make such positive remarks has been wonderful. Thank you.

  15. I sent mine today! I also received my pieces yesterday afternoon, and they were PERFECT for me. I can't wait to post a blog about them.

    I must say though...the fall is too far away :) You should have a summer stitch swap also! :)
