To my little corner of the world where there is no limit to creativity. Where possibilities are endless. Where life happens and is embraced. And where a sense of humor is a must!

    In the short time that we had together your unconditional love filled our lives with happiness, and our hearts with joy.

    Your passing leaves us forever changed.

    Season to Season Swap


    For those of you who don't know what's going on here, I'll quickly update you. I am hostessing my first swap with one of my groups, CQForNewbies (CQN). This is a FALL themed swap and will run from now until around the end of November.

    This is a one on one partner share project. Participants will work approximately 1/2 of the block they make, then their partner will work the other 1/2. Participants will get their original blocks back.

    AND YES, I KNOW that technically that is not a swap. But that's what I'm calling it for simplicities sake.

    So, with sign-ups closed and 32 participants, I'm setting up this post with links so that those who choose to follow this swap can do so more easily.

    For the benefit of our participants without blogs, a 360, a flickr, etc., I will post photos here as they become available, which means I will be updating this particular post.

    This post will be readily accessible from my sidebar under "Posts by Topic" in the drop down menu under "STS-Fall".

    So, who's on board???
    (those who either dropped out or that I haven't received blocks have been removed from the post)

    (With sites)
    Ati (received 08/21/07)
    Carole (received 08/16/07)
    Charlene (received 09/07/07)
    Christy (received 09/18/07)
    Connie (received 08/23/07)
    Courtney (received 08/13/07)
    Gerry (N/A)
    (Okay, I couldn't stop just yet. I added some more beads, buttons, and filled in the swirls to the left)

    Unfortunately, there were 3 people who I either didn't receive blocks from or who had to drop out. So, in order to keep the numbers even, I made a 'Make It Even' block. And this is it. This block will be raffled in some way on the group because it is an 'extra' so to speak.

    These are the "after" photos, with Sharon R's work. Don't you just love the little bee and gourd buttons? Too, cute!
